with the following exceptions & additions (none of which are conflicting):

4. You retain full credit to having written your story, your name will go up under the volunteers section of the website and in the Author line of your story.

I may choose to voluntarily give up my rights/credits as author, or I may refuse to add my name in the Author line, or use another name, decided on an individual basis.
Should I use another name, as long as it does not falsely indicate another person to be the author, or wish to submit something anonymously, I would expect this to be allowed (I may use the name of an NPC, character in the storylines, my RP name, etc, for the purpose of the story)
I also allow greater editing rights than point 2 requires, to bring any of my work into line with existing/forthcoming official works; either after consultation with me or if I am uncontactable
Should changes be made while I am uncontactable, I reserve the right to request editing of the story be reoppened, should I wish to amend changes made. I accept that this request may be refused
I also do not require my name to go on the volunteers page for writing of a story.
I also agree to retroactively apply this agreement to all my previous work in writing for storylines & quests (as has been submitted/updated)

On the legality of this btw, not sure whether real names should be being used?
