Please also consider uploading to the Audio Archive, which is the largest podfic database around.]]>
Please be aware that submitting a podfic to the archive is not the same as uploading it. That means, you must have a download link handy before you submit your podfic to NAN.
Please do not link directly to audio- or zip files that you are not hosting yourself. This is generally considered bad form and will attract the scorn and anger of the webspace’s owner, because you take advantage of their webspace without providing them with an actual visit. Instead, please link to a webpage. This means an extra click for a potential listener - but this extra click is a courtesy to the owner of the website archiving your fic (for free!). Consider it "payment" in the form of bringing new visitors.
Here is an example: If you want to link to Amarok's story "Of Attacking Trees and Moving Walls" you should not use this direct link:
Instead, link to the podfic entry here:
Podfic entries on NAN will always need to by validated by an admin. That means, what you submitted will never show up on the site right away. By putting in this extra step we want to make sure that what you submitted has all the info needed. If anything (most importantly, the download link) should not work, we will get back to you to sort things out. Hopefully, the validation process will also make you feel more secure, because there's less chance that you "mess things up" (which is generally not possible anyway, so don't be shy!).]]>
The podfic you submit is a fanwork in its own right. That means you can of course submit the recording of a story that is not hosted on NAN. You must be the podficcer, though. You cannot submit other people's podfic!]]>
