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 Stage/Theatre Rules
- Characters and relationships from stage shows will be accepted if they are noticeably different from a book or movie version, or if no fanlisting for the subject exists in the Characters: Book/Movie or Relationships: Book/Movie categories. If you own a character or relationship fanlisting in either of those categories, you may apply to have it cross-listed in Stage Shows.
- Only individual characters and relationships that exist within the stage show can be applied for. Fictional or fandom-based relationships should be applied for in Fanfiction.
- Only individual shows can be applied for. Fanlistings for general subjects (i.e. Andrew Lloyd Webber Musicals, Shakespeare Plays) will no longer be accepted.
- No versions of Stage Shows will be approved! Cats is Cats, whether performed in England, Germany, USA, etc.
- Where two entirely different Musicals or Operas, etc. by entirely different composers or writers exist, which are based on the same story or even share the same title, they may be applied for as separate entities. You must specify both on your application and on your fanlisting's "about" or "main" page, which version is intended.
- You can't apply for a stage show that hasn't premiered yet. If you didn't see it, how can you know that you are a fan?
- When applying, please specify which subcategory your fanlisting fits into: Plays, Musicals, Operas, Operettas, Other Stage Shows, Stand-Up Shows, Characters or Relationships. The "Other Stage Shows" category is for shows like Riverdance, other dance performances, circus performances, etc.
- Items will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If an item has a name, a special history or role unlike others of its kind in the same show, or other distinguishing characteristic, then it qualifies. Normal items such as accessories, etc. will only be accepted on a general basis. A certain accessory owned by a certain character would be approved, if it has real significance. For example: The Phantom's cloak is no different than anyone else's cloak, but his mask is a unique/significant item, which defines who he is. However, versions of The Phantom's mask, ie., The Red Death mask, are not acceptable. If you're curious about an item, apply and ask, and be prepared to submit evidence as to why this item qualifies. If I don't know what it is and why it's special, I can't approve it.
- Include as much information as possible. When applicable, please provide all names the subject goes by.
- REQUIRED: Provide a link to wikipedia on the subject, official sites, etc.
