(Somewhat) Frequently Asked Questions

Under Destruction

OK, OK... no one ever asks me questions. I've gotten some interesting guestbook entries and whatnot, but never any questions per se about my site, my works, or anything. So, I'll try to answer those questions that you've all been so actively holding back...

Fanfic Outlet Questions

Why did this page move to Tripod?

Because I didn't obey all Geocities' regulations. While this move is inconvenient, going to Tripod offers me some advantages. For example, no watermarks, only one (obligatory) banner, and a shorter URL.

Could you put *some* anime-related graphics up?

I know that the link-banners aren't enough for some people. The couple I've put up so far do spruce up the page, but there's definitely still room for more.

Why haven't you put up any lemon/hentai/adult fanfics?

1: I don't write them well.

2: This is Tripod. Get a clue.

But why won't you join any anti-hentai groups?

Because that's a "clique" thing to do. I am not a clique person.

About those spamfics...

1: They're stupid, stupid. :) Don't take them seriously.

2: I'm just a little angry and bitter about anything SM-related right now. Those 'fics are my most constructive way of dealing with it.

How *dare* you support/attack [Japanese or NA] "Sailor Moon"?!?

I don't care about this topic any more. So don't ask.

General Questions

Graphics... must have graphics... (gasp)

1: Catch your breath, and stop being so silly. Anyway, I don't have *any* talent at drawing. Neither do I have a scanner. Oh, and I don't have a zip drive either. Three strikes. See also the graphic-related questions for the two individual sites.

2: I finally accessed Photoshop and an advanced paint program with a Mac. It'll be a while before I ever create a quality graphic, however...

About the profanity in your fanfics...

As of Spring 1999, I've cut back on my use of profanity. A few of the older writings still have it, but that has definitely changed.

About the legal disclaimers...

1: Yes, I came up with it myself, and I understand every word of it.

2: I didn't say "please don't sue me," as many pages do. If someone seriously wanted to file a lawsuit against me because of something on my webpages, I will either remove the offensive material, or shut down the site altogether, depending on the severity of the charge.

3: No legal rights have been claimed on my fanfics because, simply put, I *don't* have legal rights over them. If someone copied or modified one of my works and put their name on it, I would respond privately and politely to them, but I would *not* take action against them. All fan fiction is based on privately owned properties, and even original ideas and characters are not legally mine, because I do not hold any claims on the actual properties. *Basically*, I'm saying, "I don't own this, and I don't care if you copy it."

4: I'm paranoid. Deal with it.

No Java? No frames?

Don't need 'em, don't want 'em.

Would you link to my page?

Yes... as long as the content isn't forbidden by Tripod, and is somewhat relevant to either of my pages.

Can I send you an e-mail using MIME?

My account at Xoom should be able to handle it. Remember, my address is ChrOtaku@xoommail.com. If necessary, send an e-mail to crf_riggsja@curf.edu.

Can you get rid of a Tripod pop-up

No. Sorry.

Do you support or oppose online censorship?

I don't care.
