Getting Started with Your Portfolio
by, 12-22-11 at 3:42 PM (3211 Views)
Your portfolio is a place to share your best work with our community. You can use it to post short stories, book chapters, original articles and even journal entries. You may also link to entries in your portfolio from within the Showcase forum.
Before getting started, there are a few points worth noting:
1. By default, your portfolio is viewable by guests.
Anyone who visits Mythic Scribes can see entries in your portfolio, including search engines.
You can, however, restrict your portfolio only to other members of Mythic Scribes. You can do so by visiting Portfolio Settings > Permissions & Privacy.
2. You can also restrict individual entries to members on your contact list.
You can do this on a case by case basis when creating a new entry by selecting the appropriate box under "Options." Please note that moderators can read all entries, including restricted ones.
3. Our Forum Guidelines still apply.
The forum guidelines apply to all portfolio entries, including private ones. Also, please refrain from posting fan fiction.
4. Only members with 5 or more posts can create or comment on portfolios.
Once you have made five posts, it may take up to an hour before you can create a portfolio. This is due to the automated promotion system, which runs once per hour.
5. Be selective in what you share.
Items submitted to your portfolio should be in a polished or near finished state. Drafts which are in serious need of work shouldn't be posted here.
Also, be aware that your portfolio is intended for sharing your work with our community, or with the world. We cannot guarantee that what you post here will remain private.
Therefore, we strongly recommend that you refrain from posting anything in your portfolio which is intended for later publication.
If you have any questions, let us know. It is our hope that these portfolios will be of great service to our burgeoning writing community.
