Welcome to CSI Forensics, a fandom wide CSI fiction archive. Pull up a pew and we'll show you around the lab.
We accept stories of all types, all pairings and for all three shows. We do not, however, accept real person fiction, which includes crossovers with reality television shows, or stories that feature underage relationships. If you're planning on submitting stories, please take a moment to read the submission rules before uploading any stories. This is a moderated archive and stories that do not comply with the rules will not be accepted. You will also need to ensure that your browser has cookies enabled, in order to be able to log in.
If you're not familiar with the operation of automatic archives like this one, you can also refer to the help file.
Your archivists are Alyse [CSI, CSI: Miami] and Emony [CSI: NY]. If you have any questions, or are experiencing any problems registering or logging in, they can be reached by using the 'contact' option on their user profile, linked here.
In order to see this site in its full glory, you will need to download and install cheapskate font if you don't have it already. If this looks different, you have it installed.
Minimum Quality Standards and New Archivist
Firstly, I've added a new piece of guidance on the minimum quality standards we use for the archive. It can be found here and is linked from the rules page as well. Basically, this sets out our reasoning on those occasions when we reject stories that don't meet our minimum quality standards, and will hopefully help you avoid rejection.
And speaking of avoiding rejection, unfortunately Paige, who has been with us for a good long while, has decided it's time to move on to pastures greener. I'm very grateful for all of the hard work she's put in over the years.
That being said, I'm in need of a new admin person or two, especially as my health isn't the best at the moment so using a computer is difficult.
If you'd like to help out, and feel you have the right temperament (patience is a must ::g::); a good grasp of the basics of spelling, punctuation and grammar (in short, if you read the min quality standards and found yourself nodding ::g::); and would be able to explain nicely to people why their stories couldn't be accepted into the archive, giving examples as needed, please feel free to contact me at alyseci5 at gmail dot com.
I know we've had volunteers in the past, but unfortunately I can't find the e-mails I'd thought I'd kept, so if you have expressed an interest previously in helping out (I'm sure I've had at least one in the last few months), please also drop me a line at the same address with a pointed comment about how I need to be a lot more organised than I normally am.
However, please don't just comment here with any offers, as unfortunately I don't get the comments mailed to me.
Thanks in advance.
Unfortunately, we're having an issue with spam reviews at the moment, which appears to be due to real people leaving them anonymously, thereby bypassing the captcha function we have in place to prevent spambots.
Authors already have the ability to delete anonymous reviews, so please use that function. There is no need to contact an admin to remove it for you. I've also turned off the ability to leave anon reviews temporarily.
If you start to get signed spam reviews - which happened on another site once we turned off anon reviews - please then report the user and we will lock the accounts and ban the ip address as well as deleting the reviews. Please report the user rather than the review, as that way we can find all reviews left, not just the ones on your story.
We've had a case of plagiarism on the site, and in accordance with our zero tolerance policy we have removed all of the author's stories, locked her account and are now publicising it.
The Dark Knight's story The Hidden World - posted in July 2009 and last updated in August 2009 - was, in fact, a plagiarised version of lovlyangl's story, Vampires Darkness, hosted on fanfiction.net (first published in February 2008 and last updated in March 2008). In addition, on reviewing The Dark Knight's remaining stories, we determined that the later chapters of Once Upon a Heartache had been plagiarised from Like Mother, Like Daughter, a Law and Order: SVU story by See Jane Write.
A line by line comparison of the first chapter of The Hidden World versus Vampire Darkness by lovlyangl can be found here.
A comparison of the last chapter The Dark Knight's story Once Upon a Heartache versus Chapter 24 of Like Mother, Like Daughter, a Law and Order: SVU story by See Jane Write can be found here. All items highlighted in yellow were lifted directly and word for word from See Jane Write's story.
Taken together, we believe that the evidence that The Dark Knight committed plagiarism is overwhelming and conclusive. The archive's rules clearly state that:
"5. All stories submitted to the archive must be your own work. Plagiarism will not be tolerated. Any instance of plagiarism proved to the satisfaction of the archivist will result not only in the removal of the plagiarised story, but all other stories by that author, the author's name from the list of authors and an explanation for the removal posted on the front page of the site."
We have applied those rules here. We'd like to thank lovlyangl for bringing the matter to our attention.
URGENT - do not click on any links in mail that looks like it comes from us
I suspect this has only come to me, as the person listed on the front page, but just in case, please note that we don't send site wide e-mails. If we ever do need to, we will certainly not send you any links to exe files. So if you do get a mail supposedly from 'admin' at csi-forensics, it's a spoofed e-mail address. Do not click on any links or launch any exe file. It will be a virus.
New Admins Sought
As some of you may have noticed, we've lost some of our admins, and others are struggling to deal with story submissions. I'm therefore asking for volunteers to help out with the archive, particularly fans familiar with CSI and CSI: Miami. At the moment, I'm covering the CSI: Miami category but don't actually watch the show, and both Emony and I, who are the most active archivists, are struggling to find the time to keep on top of submissions.
If you think you could help out and:
- have any familiarity with the way in which eFiction archives work
- have a good grasp of grammar, punctuation and spelling
- believe that you can handle rejections from the archive tactfully (we do have standard letters drawn up to help with this so won't throw you in cold); and
- can devote maybe an hour a week to dealing with story submissions
then we'd absolutely love to hear from you.
I'm afraid that the alternative may be that we're forced to close the site to new submissions for the foreseeable future, which would be very disappointing, for us as well.
