Registration
To post your story at SIYE you must first register. This involves choosing a penname and giving your email address. Please note that email addresses are used for admin purposes only, they can not be seen by users of the site and are not given to anyone else. Once you have entered your details, a password will be mailed to the address you supplied. (Please note this is automated and does not come from the admin team.)

Registration Problems
The password will be mailed to you straight away. You should receive your password within an hour of registering, although this may vary depending on your server and how busy it is. If you have not received your password within 24 hours, please check the following, please email our staff and we will enter a temporary password to allow you to login.

Control Panel/Your Account
Once you have logged in using your password and penname, you will be taken to your account page. From here, you can do the following:

Add New Story
  1. Choose the category that your story best fits in.

  2. Fill in the fields displayed. All fields are required except for the warnings and mailing list. You can upload your story from a file or write directly to the box provided. I would recommend that you use notepad or some other text editor to write and save your story and then cutting and pasting to the story box. Acceptable HTML to use are italics, bold, or rulers, codes are given beside the story upload box.

  3. Click the preview button to check your submission before finally pressing the submit story button. This is very important. You must ensure that your submission has proper formatting and appears correctly.

  4. To modify the story alter the text in the text box or just 'Add Story' if you are happy with it.
The story will then be checked for suitability for the site by one of our administrators and posted, usually within 24 hours. If we do not accept your story, you will be mailed with a reason for this. We will not enter into any further correspondence if a story is refused. Authors who are validated will not go through this validation process and their stories will automatically appear.
