Our Publication Standards

All material shared with Story Tellers must be both intended and fit for publication, i.e. it must meet the following standards:
 Material must be submitted on a voluntary basis not from compulsion, by individuals aged 18 or above in conjunction with a filled Media Release Form.
 Users may only tell stories on our forum in which they themselves play the major role as protagonist. We aren’t interested in publishing gossip.
 False names of people and places can be substituted in order to protect individual’s rights to privacy. Otherwise, all material must be true, decent, non-defamatory, non-harmful and rendered in clearly intelligible English.
 It is assumed that any material submitted by users is intended for publication on our forum. Don’t send us anything that is private or illegal.
 The user must own copyright of all the material that they wish to share on our forum, i.e. it must be original, not a derivative work , not copied from another source. By sharing the material, the user grants joint copyright status to StoryTellers to enable StoryTellers to publish the story on our forum and social media.
Furthermore, the user must allow that other users of the forum may wish to share the material via their own social media and so by submitting material to our forum users are effectively granting infinite and unlimited rights for other people to share the story in perpetuity.  We can’t put cats back into bags.
 All users must treat each other and the site administrators with respect. This applies in videos and commentary alike. ‘Flaming’ other users is strictly prohibited. ‘Trolls’ material won’t be published.
 Users may request that the administrators remove their own material from the Forum, but they cannot expect a full and total recall, by then the stories may well have travelled beyond the administrator’s reach.
 Administrators are obliged to cooperate with law enforcement agencies in any instance where it is believed that a crime may have been committed. This includes the full range of conventional and cyber crimes.
 Foreign language material and commentary will not be published on this forum. If we can’t understand it, we won’t share it.
 StoryTellers reserves the right to edit a story in order to render it more fit for publication or to reject a story that fails to meet the required standards.
