Rules for Inclusion in the Archive
This page describes the type of material which may be added to this archive.
- Files and Links
There are two kinds of entries in this archive: files, which reside on the archive site
itself, and links, which point to material located elsewhere on the web. Both have the
same descriptive information in the archive index, and both can be searched for using the archive
search engine. At present, only text files may be stored on the archive site. Links may point to
text, images, or videos.
If you are adding a link to the archive, please verify that the link is correct and that it is to a
location which allows direct linking. (Many sites, for instance, will not allow direct linking to an
image file, but do allow you to link to the page upon which the image appears.)
All links in the archive will be reviewed periodically, and links which are not working will
Criteria for inclusion in this archive are as follows:
If you are not certain whether a particular item is appropriate for this archive, feel free to ask. The
archivist reserves the right to allow or disallow any submissions.
- The archive accepts fan fiction, artwork, and other fan-created material based on the
television show The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
- The archive accepts gen, het, and slash fiction of any rating.
Note: If you have a slash story, there is a large and popular MFU slash archive
at the Chrome & Gunmetal Madhouse. Your story
will probably get the best visibility if you archive it there, but if you do, please also add a
link to it here on MFUArchive, so people will be able to find it through this site. Or, you can
archive the story itself in both places, whichever you prefer.
- The archive does NOT accept any fiction which presents fictionalized
versions of the private lives of contemporary real people: no Real Person Fiction/Real Person Slash.
Real people may be used as supporting characters in stories as long as the story focuses on their
public or professional lives, not their private lives.
Ratings & Content Notices
The archive accepts adult material, but all submissions must be rated appropriately in the
Rating field of the upload form. The archivist may modify the rating of an
entry if its original rating is found to be inappropriate. See the
Ratings help file for guidelines on choosing a rating.
The Content Notices field is used in conjunction with the rating to indicate
sensitive subject matter in an archive entry. Use of the notices is optional, but encouraged
for material given a Restricted or Adult rating.
Anyone may add a link to the archive. For archiving files, however, I ask that the submitter be
the author of the material or have permission from the author to archive here.
Modifying an Entry
Users cannot directly modify archived files. However, if you are the author and need to change
a field on your file (such as changing the Status from In Progress
to Complete), or you wish to submit a revised version of the story, please
contact the archivist to have this done.
