    Hi, actually i wanted to suggest that a few of the Genre's are unnecessary or ill-defined.

    Action/Adventure I just thought could use a re-definition
    "A story involving terse action or danger in which a protagonist(s) is thrust out of their everyday lives into extraordinary situations."

    This sounds more fluid in it's delivery. I mean, really, it's saying the exact same thing that's already there, but as a writer I couldn't help myself.

    Futuristic and historical
    Pretty much any time period is more of a setting than a genre. (A steampunk Scifi(past) A post-robotic uprising post-apocalyptic (Futuristic)) I wouldn't have these listed as their own categories.

    Religious
    This one is more of a theme than a genre. Like, you can totally have a Sci-fi story with a religious theme (A machine that lets you talk to god). As a further example, you already have a post-apocalyptic story story with a religious (Demons, purification) theme. 

    Having too many categories can lead to confusion in terms of where to place an RP (My current work would be a Futuristic Sci-fi Fantasy). I just want to lend my knowledge as someone who has done this before so that we can all have the best experience possible, you know?

    Feel free to ignore me. It's your site, after all.
