    All members of TSC please take a few minutes to read this announcement. You will save both Hosts and yourselves a lot of problems down the line. Hello I’m Sotek; a Host of The Story Corner and I welcome you all to the new Tamriel Vault and more specifically, The Story Corner. I don’t want to delay you in exploring this site so I will make this brief. Things have changed. Discussions are not overly link friendly so what each member needs to do is to repost their ToC’s as Blogs. Yes, we are now using Blogs for our ToC’s as well as Stories, Poems ect. There is no ‘Post One Blog in Every 24 Hour rule’ anymore but I do ask that you respect other members and don't swamp the blog posts.

    There is going to be a lot of new content placed and we are all getting used to the new site.  

    With this in mind, please, obey the rules. Play nice and let’s show everyone just what it means to run alongside a pack like T.S.C.

    Of course, old Blogs that are already up will need some work to tidy them up. You are free to adjust these as and when you see fit. Just don’t go reposting them. On the lighter side, if anyone feels this is somewhat unfair then I will sort out your chapters and you can sort out my 164 chapters which need looking at. Any takers on my offer? Please?

    Seriously, I know that you all have a lot of cleaning up to do; ToC’s reposting, Blogs to check and links to set up. I’m in the same boat as you all. My ToC is a mess, my R.P.Profile and my Gallery I haven’t even looked at yet and all I managed to do is have a quick play with my first two chapters of U.O.T.W. I dread to even think about my build. Apparently I have a profile page. I don’t know, I’ve yet to look at it.

    What we all need to remember is this; The old site had grown into what it become over a series of years of hard work and graft. We will do the same here. Hosts and Admins are on hand and we will help you in any and every way possible. Have a read of the various guides we’ve set up and go explore the site. Check out the Welcome page of T.S.C. There are links there to topics and guides as well as the forums at the top of this pages heading bar. Above all, write a few words, read a few stories. You never know where the journey may take you and no one knows who you will meet on the way.

    Good hunting!

    Yes, I've done some work with formatting, so I can offer my assistance and answer questions. 


    And enjoy the new site.

    =) Thanks for this, I was really lost on what to do and couldn't even find my ToC!

  • September 1, 2016

    Yeah, just so that you know. We will be getting a plugin for this website that will improve features in discussions and allow for editing.

    Quick question, do I use the same tags as I had on the Ning site?

    For my blog chapter posts. =) That's what I did with the TOC tags. Just copy-and-pasted them onto here.

    Morning, the main category needs to be selected from that drop down tab closer to where you add that text. But for the other tag space, you can use old tags. Um, they don't format the same, so you don't need quotes. I'd still recommend keeping things relatively simple though. 


    Main Category: TSC:Long


    Tags: TSC:Skyrim, Legends of the Skaal


    Yep, I think gone are my days of the tomato tags and all that fun stuff. Sotek should add more when he wakes up.

    So if ToCs count toward the 24-hour posting rule, does that mean I post the ToC a day before I actually post the story, or is it the other way around?

    In retrospect, probably not the most intelligent question I could have asked, but clarification would be nice. :P

    Hello WuYiXiang

    I don't feel its right to penalize writers with regards to posting ToCs as it is a fundamental part of the story and it is as always a central hub to the story. As such ToC's do NOT count with regards to the 24 hour posting rule.

    I've amended the rule as follows:

    The ‘Post One Blog in Every 24 Hour rule’ still stands however ToC's have a free pardon with regards to posting!

    What this means is that members can post a ToC and a chapter of their story within a twentyfour hour window.

    My apologies for the delay in answering you. I've had a few issues with firewalls.

    No worries, mate. I get that firewalls can be difficult to work with.

    Thanks for the clarification!

    P.S. The rules still state "Just don’t go reposting them. ToC’s however do apply to the twenty four hour posting Rule." a couple paragraphs underneath the edit.

    Fixed that section. Thanks for pointing it out.
