1. Don't break what somebody else has written. We make the canon. If you don't like it, either write around it or communicate with other people to settle in a compromise. Don't just write whatever you want: respect the words of your fellow contributors.
2. No scoop is better than bad scoop. If you can't find a story to write about, don't force yourself to write. Take a hiatus, go sightseeing around the galaxy, get inspired. Come back later and write something brilliant.
3. All's fair in love and moe wars. War isn't pretty. The Stella and Nova galaxies are sometimes the scenes of much bloodshed and ruin. Please reflect accurately the results of battle. Who knows when the tide will turn again?
4. Register with the Space Opera Press. We at SO Press would like to know who you are before you contribute for us. Please drop in a simple application or something.
5. Have fun!
Current Contribution Roles
- Faction Page Manager
Faction Page Managers have the responsibility to maintain all the current information on a particular faction, as well as contributing faction-related backstory and relevant happenings within the worlds of the faction (in other words, space operafied stuff from the anime). They are also requested to keep a relevant gallery of pictures in support of their world's commanders.
For example, the K-Onsonance Faction Page Manager can retell the backstory of Wing Commander Mio in a new sci-fi light. Or they could post propaganda of Flight Commander Azusa dressed in a commander's uniform aboard a spaceship.
- Domain Reporter
Domain Reporters are the supplementary reporters to the main broadcasts for the Great Moe Wars. They provide relatively unbiased reports from the perspective of their registered domain (ie KyoAni Empire, the Council). These Reporters are allowed to post on the same threads as the main reports.
For example, the KyoAni Domain Reporter, after witnessing a harsh defeat of Empress God Haruhi and other Key (and Non-Key) members, would post below the official results article a short blurb about the state of affairs within the Empire.
- More roles will be coming upon request/need
