Guideline for Donation Button by author

#1
RRL Team wishes to support all the authors in their road to become legendary! We know that sometimes in order to do that, a lot of time is needed, and time is money; Some authors don’t have the luxury to sit all day to write something, which is why we wish to provide them a way to get a little back from their hard work. Until that day comes, we’ve decided to give the authors, the option to add a donation request. Maybe that bit of extra money they receive would give them a little of extra free time, fund a cover image or the proofreading. Of course, any donations made will be outside of Royal Road Legend and have no relation with us.
However, some rules must be followed:

  1. Only writers with original work have permission to put up a donation request. As any kind of profit with fanfictions is a breach of copyright laws.


  1. The request can only be put at the bottom of chapters. They are not allowed in signatures, comments, reviews, description, or any other form of post, but chapters.


  1. RRL reserves the right to remove the donation button or change the rules at any given time without notice.

How many chapters and word/character per chapter is considered long enough?

PS:
I think you got the numbering wrong because it's all 1s unless it's intentional.

That is not correct.
ANY fanfiction is a breach of copyright and/or trademark laws.

However I have to admit that trying to profit from fanfiction drastically increases the chance of a fine and directly disables some of the very few defenses that a fanfiction can claim.

Fair use for example is only allowed for either parodic purposes (some fanfiction are safe because of this) or review/tutorial purposes (that means very limited referencs to the original work, like placing your own characters into a fanfiction universe can sometimes be allowed).
