|Mia's Index of Anthro' Stories|
If I try to create an actual archive, I will need to maintain it, deal with copyright issue (and the e-mail volume that alone would generate is huge), arrange the diskspace with someone, write archiving software and pages, and possibly other tasks I haven't thought of yet. In short, it'd be a major drain on my time and workload to do.Given that I really do not have the extra time, and in fact, am actually spending less time on MIA'S than I should to keep all the keywords, ratings and species settings getting done moderately quickly, I certainly am not going to try to do that at this point in time. After all, there are plenty of furry archives out there already, why not let them do their share of the work ? ;-)
For good public archive sites to place your stories, see Question 4 below.A final word of caution (I used to think mentioning this was unnecessary, but events have proved otherwise). You may want to check the Index for your story before submitting it, it may already be in there (Especially if you submitted it to one of the sites that make it a point to keep me up to date on their stories, such as for example Furry Pleasures does)).

If an author manages to write several stories that I find worthy of the triangle (or seldomly, a long story containing several substories that I would have rated a triangle by themselves), without writing too many I found only mediocre to bad, he or she will get that triangle beside hir name in the authors list. These constitute the authors that I really like, and whose stories I will not hesitate to recommend.
If an author hasn't written enough stories worth the triangle, but still tends to write well, sie will get the 'good' rating, this doesn't mean the rating cannot increase with time as I see more stories by that author (or decrease if that is the case). I will usually not give author ratings without having seen a large sample of output. As with all the ratings, this is just my opinion, Your mileage may vary.
Plain ASCII text is also possible, though if you use it, please format your text to a line width of 72 chars or shorter, so it can be shown on regular screens without undue wrapping. Hint: It's relatively easy to format Plain ASCII into HTML (so why not have a try ? ;-).
While there are other formats such as RTF, Word Document, EBCDIC and such, not everyone can read them, and thus they are not formats I recommend (though I WILL include stories written in such formats). If at all possible, reformat such files to one of the two above. If you wish, I can add pointers to the original version beside the reformatted one (I'll need the URL's for that to happen though ;-)
Secondly, there are already quite a few stories on the Index that I feel are a waste of good diskspace (no, I will not name them here, but let me just point out that this is just purely my personal feeling here, which I will not expect anyone else to share), so one more won't harm anything. And who knows, I may like it more than you think. In fact, I've noticed a pronouced tendency for authors to evaluate their stories incorrectly as to how much I or their audience liked them.At any rate, to get back to the topic at hand, all I require of a story for it to be indexed here is that it be at least marginally anthropomorphic, and that it be available to the WWW, and I've even made some exceptions to those rules on occasion (but only to accept a story, never to deny it).
