WG-Squared FAQ - Answers most questions.

:pie:Welcome to the Weight Gain Writers Group!:pie:

The Weight Gain Writers Group (or WGWG or WG2 or WG2 or even WG-Squared) is a place where authors of Female Weight Gain and Fat fiction can post their works, talk about common interests & techniques and generally critique, commiserate, and communicate the woes and wonders of writing tales of female WG. Our stories feature everything to do with BBWs & SSBBWs from fat to obese to beyond, as well as feeders & feedees and other standards of this kind of fiction.

WG2 is also a place where fans of such fiction can come to hang out with the creators. Where they can peruse the stories and make comments upon them as well as ask questions about them and the people behind them.

At the top of WG2's masthead you'll see a beautiful girl tirelessly typing away. She is the group's muse, Rosalie. I humbly thank artiste extraordinaire Satsurou for graciously creating and drawing Rosalie! Everyone please give Sats a big round of applause!

:bulletred: Roles, Rules, & A Guide for Posting Your Stories :bulletred:

The admin team here at WG2 has had many lengthy behind the scenes discussions about just what we want this group to focus on as well as what we do not want to focus on. One of the things we don’t want to focus on are stories about fat males. Sorry but we wanna keep it all about the ladies around here. That also means the women should mostly be women, no excessive anthropomorphism. Tails and animal ears are okay, more than two breasts or udders, not okay. Also we only want stories where the woman is fattened up by FAT. No inflation - air or water or otherwise. Furthermore NO food stuffing stories where the woman remains skinny - if the gut grows so must the rest of the body.

Stories should be over 200 words. Stories that we do accept can be of a magical or pseudo-scientific means for gaining or just plain good ol’ fashioned eating! They can be fan fics or original characters. The bottom line is as long as they’re about fat women and/or women getting fat then we’re a-okay with them being submitted here!

This brings me to our expectations of the contributors and members here.

Contributors: As the name implies, Contributors MUST contribute. However, this contribution is not limited only to their own stories but also includes some admin duties as well. In this way, Contributors are able to shape the group, having a say in overall group dynamics. They're allowed, and encouraged, to vote on new Member and Contributor requests, outgoing and incoming Affiliation requests as well as write group blog entries. Contributors are expected to follow the guidelines set up for the group and not start accepting, for instance, air inflation stories or something.

That said, anyone who applies for Contributor status will have their dA page perused by one or more of our intrepid admin team and if you do not have at least eight stories about fat women posted there your application to become a Contributor will be denied. However, if we do accept you as a Contributor we’d like you to submit some or all of your stories - what and how many is up to you - within a week of being accepted or we reserve the right to change your group status to Member. When you do decide to submit your stories we will create your very own folder in the Gallery for you to submit them into. This way we can keep things relatively organized here. Please do NOT submit anything to the Favorites folder. We have special plans for that folder that you’ll read about in a minute. Anything that gets submitted there that doesn’t fit into those plans will be deleted. We appreciate your diligence and cooperation in this matter.

Members: There are essentially two types of Members here at WG2. The first type is someone who has a few stories they'd like to share here. We welcome you and will set up a folder for you in the Gallery. You're under no obligation to join in otherwise, although we'd like you to. If you do eventually post more stories and would like to be a more active participant you can always petition to become a Contributor.

The second type of Member is not necessarily a writer of WG fiction but definitely someone who enjoys it and wants to support those that create this type of prose. We encourage participation by posting opinions and comments, but there's no requirement to do so. Just reading and perhaps adding some of our authors' stories to your Faves is really all that's necessary.

But no matter what category of Member you fall into, feel free to submit pertinent deviations to be included into our Favorites folder. You may also vote on deviations that get submitted by others. However, please be aware that we do not want any pure prose in there, that should go to the Gallery folders. We will ONLY be accepting comics or drawings with accompanying prose. The key word is that they must have words and not simply pictures, after all, we're here to support WG writing. No offense to our fellow WG artists, but there are plenty of other places for WG art. Please see below for more information on our Favorites section. We also encourage members to send us notes and comments on how they feel we can improve things here. We’re always open to suggestions. Finally, any Member may petition to become a Contributor but they must first meet the Contributor requirements above in order to have their status changed.

The Favorites Section: Regarding the Favorites section, we would like it to be a place for things that are still story related but not purely prose. We’ve talked about this a lot in our admin meetings and we’ve decided to only accept comics or illustrations with accompanying prose for inclusion there. Most other groups on dA feature illustrations and here at WG2 we would like to do that too, but only in as much as the illustration is in service to a story. So, bearing all that in mind, please respect our wishes and do not submit simple pictures, only pics that have writing attached. Anything else will be summarily rejected. Again, as with our pure prose submissions, they must be about fat females and WG. Also, much like the gallery, we’ll be trying to keep things fairly organized there. We’ll either have the various submissions corralled by creator or, if it’s an ongoing series, we’ll put it in a folder with the series’ name on it. Please respect our wishes and do not violate these rules or you may find yourself banned from the group.

How to Submit Your Stories: We’ve had several people ask us how to submit their stories here. Thanks to the oxymorons at dA the submission process is simultaneously simple yet not very intuitive. However, fear not as I am going to give you step-by-step instructions on how to submit your works for inclusion here at WG2.
1. As previously stated, you MUST be a Contributor or Member to submit your works to the group.

2. Go to the Gallery. All authors MUST submit their stories into the folder with their name on it in the Gallery. Prose submissions to the Favorites folder or into the Gallery’s Featured folder will be deleted in the case of the former and moved to the appropriate author’s folder in the latter.

3. Find your folder in the Gallery. A quick way to do this is to find your name in the “Gallery Folders” menu bar to the left in the Gallery. These are listed alphabetically in hyperlinked text so just click on your name to open your personal WG2 folder. It should be set up for you to submit your works, if not send a note to the group and one of the administrators will change the setting so you can then submit at liberty without having to wait for approval - as long as you follow the criteria for acceptance stated previously. Submit as many of your stories as you want, there is currently no limit.

4. Once in your folder you will see a button towards the upper right area titled
“+ Submit to This Folder.” Click on it.

5. A pop-up menu will appear with two options: “Submit a New Deviation...” & “Contribute an Existing Deviation...”

6. Choose “Contribute an Existing Deviation...” this option will essentially link your already submitted deviation from your own dA page to your folder here in the group. This way any comments, favorites and pageviews you get will be credited to your original deviation. We here at WG2 only want to act as a medium for people to showcase their works, not take credit for them. We want to promote, not pilfer.

7. After you click the submission button a new window will open showing your Gallery of deviations. Simply choose a deviation by clicking on it - the deviation will become highlit. Then click “OK” - which is highlit in green - at the bottom of the window.

8. Repeat steps 4 through 7 above until all the deviations you wish to submit have been posted. Congratulations, you have now become an active participant at WG2!

Hopefully this document has been helpful. Feel free to send us a note if you have any questions that were not answered here or if you have any concerns or ideas on how we can improve the group to better serve the WG writing community. We want to foster communication and encourage creativity inspired by the fat women we all love and admire.

Take care all; we hope you enjoy your time here at the Weight Gain Writers Group!

Hello everybody, I'm writing this to inform you all that effective immediately ObeseQueen will be taking over main admin duties at WG2. I've been wanting to step down for a while now and specifically asked Ms. Queen to take over managerial duties. Many of you know her from around the WG scene at DA. She is extremely nice and very supportive and encouraging. I think she will make an excellent manager for WG2. She will now have final say on the direction of the group and her first task will be to re-organize the folder structure here so we can accommodate more writers without total organizational breakdown. She has asked that I stay on as an adviser during the transition period but she will be in charge from now on.

Thank you all for your support over these past five years, making this place one of the best collections of weight gain stories around! So, without further ado, please welcome ObeseQueen and give her your support.

sincerely,

s.aka

For anyone who's wondering "What The Fuck Is Going On With This Group?" I have contacted several admins and placed my ideas to one of them. I want to see this group become successful, again, and I hope my ideas can help pick them up.

Yes, I joined a month or so ago and immediately noticed something was up. After looking for this supposed folder I was supposed to have after joining, I realized the folder limit had actually been reached and there'd be no hope for me in submitting my stories. Then I went to the comment forum to see what was up, and supposedly someone was working on it, but even to this day I'm still wondering exactly that, "What The Fuck Is Going On With This Group?"

I hope something can change and the group can breathe again.

I completely agree and would love to say more but I'm being professional here as I'm trying to provide some ideas to get this group back on their feet. I had a similar issue but I'm not just doing it for me, I'm doing it for the image of the group, what it stands for, and the future/current members.

Would like an update as well but we may never get one.

Yeah well I've contacted every admin and only heard from two. Would have liked to have seen a response from you from the PM I sent you. I won't go into the BTS stuff here but I'm really...really disappointed in what I've heard.

The maximum folder limit for the gallery was reached some time ago, so no more folders can be created. It's a bummer, I know. I myself tried getting my own folder after signing up but for some reason all admin activity seems to have gone dead :(

Yeah no one is really getting back to people so I'll help you out with that question. Since February-March this group has a folder crisis and they are maxed out. Unless some leadership gets done the group will only be able to support people who have folders here. I know it sucks, I didn't get the chance to get a folder either, but I did put in some suggestions to help get this group back on their feet; we shall see.

I need your guys help. I'm trying to find a story. Its about a girl looking at Facebook photos so a skinny girl, she's jealous of her small size, but as time goes on the girl bulks up and you realize that the girl looking at the pictures was once the thin girl in them. Any idea on the name or where on DA I saw it?

Question, if this group has run out of folder space how am I still receiving new updates from the collections section?

Are their plans for a WG^3 page?
