General TFL Guidelines
- Please make sure you've read the rules carefully and checked the approved section before applying.
- If you're applying for more than one fanlisting, please use a separate form for each fanlisting you want.
- If the fanlisting you want fits into more than one category, please apply in both categories. This does not apply to certain categories, however. Please check the rules and category list pages for more information.
- Name, Email, HTML Example and subject are required fields. Your application will NOT go through unless you fill in these fields.
- Your HTML Example must be your own work. Applications submitted with a link to a website designed and built by someone else will be rejected.
- Please do not use AOL.com, Hotmail.com, Hotmail.co.uk, Live.com, Outlook.com, other MSN.com variations, Yahoo.com or other Yahoo variations because we cannot guarantee our emails will reach these addresses.
- PLEASE NOTE: there is a limit on the number
of upcoming fanlistings an owner may have. If you have:
- 6 fanlistings upcoming in a category and/or
- 20 fanlistings upcoming at the network
the staffer has the right to reject your application out-right or until you complete some of your upcoming fanlistings..
If some of these are pending finished forms being processed, include the completed URLs in your application form.
Do not use more than one email address to apply for your fanlistings.
Specific History/Royalty Rules
- Please make sure you have read the disclaimer on the approved section for History and Royalty before applying.
- Controversial historical figures/despots/tyrants will be approved in this category only with the understanding that the content of the fanlisting must be concerned with the historical study of this person and not a support of their views. Any fanlistings that promote hate, racism, or other values contrary to the spirit of The Fanlistings will not be listed.
- Historical political figures are those who are no longer serving or in power. (Royalty is not included in this!) Apply for those in both Politics and History/Royalty. If the person you want is still active in politics, then apply only in the Politics category. If you aren't certain, apply in both categories and we'll decide for you. Make sure to put in the comments field that you've applied in both.
- Saints, popes, and other religious figures that were also historical/real people should be applied for both in Mythology/Religion and History/Royalty. If the person you want is still alive, then apply only in the Mythology/Religion category. If you don't know if your person was real or not, apply in both anyway and we'll decide for you. Make sure to put in the comments field that you've applied in both.
- General culture groups are not accepted, a particular historical culture automatically includes its people.
- Historical places and extinct animals are not accepted. Applications for places belong in the Places category and for extinct animals (with the exception of individual, named animals such as Seabiscuit) in the Animals category.
- The cross-listing of a book or movie character with the corresponding historical person is not acceptable. You must apply for a separate fanlisting for the historical person.
