Thank-yous to your individual author(s) and/or individual commenters. Feel free to tack these onto a different post -- ie, if you are posting a recs set, it is totally fine to include the story you received and thank your own santa for it while you are doing so.
Single-story recs. If a rec is long and meaty, we won't be too picky about this, but in general, please try for a minimum of at least three or four stories in a recs post.
Offers of fandom source. Feel free to do this in a Dear Yuletide Author post in your LJ, but we ask that you not post it here.
Critical discussion of Yuletide stories. We are actually huge proponents of the free discussion of fanfic, but this comm is about sharing delight and keeping everyone excited about the challenge, so not here, thanks!
Posts that are off-topic or are specifically not allowed may be deleted, with a message to the poster as to the reason.
We do not allow locked posts, as not all of our participants have LJs. In the same vein, anonymous commenting is enabled so those without LJs can comment here, but if you need to use this option, please sign your name.
If you post a NYR story, please DO NOT announce it here: it will be magically announced to the list for you in the next day's "Stories of the Day" post. Your recipient will also receive an email at that time notifying them of the story.
The volume here is pretty seasonal, so we will not spend a lot of time enforcing guidelines when the comm is relatively quiet, but during the peak from December - January, we'll be more aggressive about it to try and keep the comm manageable for all (including us!).
