"Creators" are the creators of a CST. However, before a member can become a creator of a CST their story must be approved by a moderator or an admin. This is for several reasons. One, the CST must be grouped in a category for users to find easily, two, to ensure that all requirements for a CST have been met and the CST can be started by the community, and three, to make sure any notable problems are addressed before writers contributing.
To be approved by a moderator or an admin: a CST must have at a minimum a story setting, detailed situation, and at least one* conflict. These components can be referred to as the story base. In ADDITION to the story base, creators can also provide a list of characters, character traits including inclinations to "evil" or "good" (or whatever the story base calls for), or any other nuances (in the regulation of the must-not's).
(To be approved by a moderator or an admin:) A CST must NOT have an intricately laid out plotline, an ending/conclusion, or be extremely rigid with the possibilities of the writers. The creator is providing a story to be built on, if everything is formed for the writers it defeats the purpose.
Creators, be aware that by going to get your CST approved you are allowing the prospect of other writers to add on to your work/collaborate.
Once a CST has been approved there are two things that a creator is allowed to do. One, they can participate as a writer in their CST if they would like to and two, if a writer is violating community guidelines or if the creator has any specific problem with a said writer they reserve the right to request a moderator. Which, depending on the offense, action may be taken.
Creators looking to get their CST approved (as of 9/19/2021) can go through discord, the community tab, or through the form linked below.
*The conflict in a story base will vary and hence its specifications will be handled between the creator and moderator/admin approving the CST, only if any problem with the story base occurs.
Creators, have fun with your CST, this is your story that you are sharing! At the end of the day, the Vritra Community is here to do what we love and enjoy!
