Fimfiction rules

There has, finally, been a Fimfiction site post about the recent changes to its rules. This should have happened immediately the changes were announced, but better late than never, I suppose. One bit of the rules that caught my eye (and I don't seem to be alone in that) was this:
Sharing access to unpublished stories or chapters is only allowed for the purpose of help with editing or other stages of the writing process.
In response to horizon's bringing this up, Xaquseg (one of the site admins) had this to say:
It's fine if the people in question are helping with the writing process, such as acting as additional prereaders, or commenting on an incomplete idea.
That's... interesting. It means, for example, that authors can't offer sight of their unpublished stories as Patreon rewards – unless, as ocalhoun appreciated, said supporters "act as additional prereaders".

Nudge nudge, know what I mean, say no more. :P
