It doesn't matter what your intentions for your work are. What matters is the content that's actually here. And since the content in that work falls between 5-15 kb, we're considering it a Short Story like almost all other works on this site of that length. We have to categorize it somehow. 23:06, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
But he does have a point, maybe we should only categorize works by length once they're finished or untouched for a long time? --Nonimportant 20:50, 12 November 2007 (UTC)
Leaving a work uncategorized by length at first may be a wise move. I'll hold off on recategorizing it then, for now. But that means this story had better be growing.
I don't profess to know what your work is more than you do, but I'm not an idiot, and may you stop putting words in my mouth. Have you not noticed that most other works on this site are categorized by length? That's current length, rather than planned length. This site's had a debate on this issue before, and the current system is evidence of the decision this site has reached. Lack of length in a story is nothing to be ashamed of, but it's just not right to claim that a short work is longer than it actually is. Sure you can expect to add more, but that can be said for all works here until the end of time.
- I can profess that a single sentence by itself is just the prologue to an epic-length story (and anyone can say that), but that doesn't change what it is.
- And Phaeton is not currently a novel. Besides, if it's already a novel, why is it taking you multiple days to post it here? Systran isn't that slow.
However, I shall get around to reading your work, and if it is slash, I WILL delete it.

Yes, the categorizing isn't permanent. That means that when you've uploaded a Novel, we'll call it a Novel. Until then, the length is what it is and no morekthx(And by the way, I don't recall ever debating future categorizations)User:Serprex 02:37, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
You didn't give up, did ya man? We need more people doing sci fi here! --Nonimportant 23:35, 18 November 2007 (UTC)
Might you want to vote for fiction wiki for featured wikia?
Also, could you tell me how you got interested in/encountered this site? 16:47, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
