Announcement ! (Fanfic Evaluation ?)

Okay, Fan Fiction is needed. Why ? Because it’s a content (I need it). I will eventually have to integrate it to my site anyway.

So, I’m thinking of devising a requirement for a fan fiction to be published as a post here. I will send Author role.

The most popular one here is malvazar’s “The Other World’s Physics doesn’t make any sense !”.  And it seems will be continued.

I need suggestions how to evaluate a FanFic.

And also, whether I evaluate it myself, or readers evaluate it, or possibly volunteers ?


Suggestions :

Grammar/ Writing Style, Regular Updates and Character Development
Grammar/ Writing Style:
– Each sentence has a clear purpose.
– Events are “shown” rather than simply “told”.
– Dialogue is prevalent.
– Adjectives aren’t abused.
Regular Updates:
– Writer has a backlog of at least 5 chapters to keep up with updates
– Updates at least once weekly on a specific day at a specific time
Character Development
– Main Character doesn’t start off OP unless author has a clear reason in mind (e.g. Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei uses an OP main character to craft a story around the supporting characters dealing with him being OP)
– Females are more than 34DD’s on legs
– Critical flaws are present in the main characters which will be addressed over time

By ElevenAM

I’d evaluate based on: content – how original is it? Quality – how good is it and how consistent? Finally I would judge based on spelling and grammar which are the least

  1. Honestly, I am not fond of fan fiction (aside from the very short comedic ones), so I would recommend that you don’t go through with it. I am sorry, but most fanfics that I have been recommended are horribly cringe worthy.

    id recommend reviewing adamantine dragon in the crystal world. grammar is a little iffy at the start but it’s mostly cleaned up. still not perfect so it won’t set the bar too high for the first review. The story is really interesting, and it gives an example of telling the story of side character while using an OP protag(tho he is more of an absolute bundle of potential and not yet entirely OP).

    overall i think it would be a good one to start out with. it’s not exactly unknown, but it’s not the most well known out there.

      as for flaws there is a bit missing for that category. main flaws would be arrogance i guess tho…. dude basically ignores anyone and anything that doesnt directly involve him….. though with the backstory for the mc before he reincarnates it’s entirely understandable for him to act like he owns the world XD.

    Though I don t know if you saw my suggestion, this will be lonked to my another suggestion, so instead of that how about you ask for a synopsis , and the first chapter, or first five chapters and if they show promise you put them after evaluating with the people you shared opinion with, another one would be to ask what would the story be about and what do he plans to do with this story I mean, like if he plans to make the character op, something like that, this is something I thought of hope you like one

    You raised the bar to high, maybe just the second suggestion , there s also fanfic that people won t be able to put on weekly, though this may sound offensive, aims an there hasn’t been a chapter of nidoume in about to two weeks ,
    Then just evaluate them you with people who you trust their opinion, this a suggestion.
    Remember that some will not show how they are with just a chapter, and the creators of this fanfic can improve their grammar and spelling with time , well this is just my opinion

    Just gotta give my opinion^^
    if i was you i think i would just let the people rate it…
    I wouldnt be as strict as some of the other comments suggest…
    Sometimes a great idea is worth much more than grammar, or frequent updates.(in my opinion at least)
    So if people like the mc, the setting and the story, the other stuff mentioned can improve over time.
    So i would just put the ffs you think are ok on something like a suggestion page, where the first like…3-5 chapters of each, and a summary of at least the mc and the general story are shown,so that people can vote which one they would like to see.
    everything with a certain amount of views/likes/ratings gets published…
    Just my opinion, but i think it would also be fine if u decided…^^

    Ely,
    I honestly think that this bar is set too high for a number of reasons.
    Fan fiction is done by the fans for the fans. You should indeed have a minimum requirement; however, this is something that is innately done for fun. Setting the bar so high as (you must post once a week) or other things is not only meddlesome, and constricting, but it also is rather intimidating.
    You aren’t paying these people, they are generating content for your site.
    Not to mention, most of these people will have a full time job (like me) and even if they don’t youre limiting the amount of content that can go into a post. Instead of a fully-fleshed out and carefully planned chapter, you force them to rush out 10 paragraphs or get booted.Not only that, they have to meet a certain skill level standard all while having virtually 0 grammatical errors?

    Where is the fun in that? Who would do that for free?

    I have my own material but as a artist and creator, I wouldn’t want to subject my work to not only the criticism of my peers, but also the stress and pressure of having it removed from your site for something so ridiculous.

    Instead, I suggest you come up with the rules that you REQUIRE, not WANT.

    Yes, a certain minimum content requirement makes sense.
    Forced weekly updates? No.
    Monthly updates are significantly more feasible and allow for the proper amount of time to plan write a good chapter, full chapter.
    Who are we to say you have to write a certain way and a certain style?

    TL;DR You aren’t paying these people so don’t force them to ridiculous standards.

  10. I’d evaluate based on: content – how original is it? Quality – how good is it and how consistent? Finally I would judge based on spelling and grammar which are the least important as an editor can always be found.

    Also btw that dudes novel title seems grammatically incorrect, should be ‘don’t’ rather than ‘doesn’t’.

      Wow, you actually put the details down. Do you think I should evaluate it myself, or let readers do it ?

        I’d advise that you create a rubric of some kind that authors need to meet before applying for your attention. After that, I’d say a preliminary look through their material would be good followed by a 2 week period of hosting the work/ getting input from us, the readers. Contact me if you want some help. I’m also working on a web serial for myself.
