A quick perusal looked good. I think the "Submit Story" might do well to
have entries specifically for Attribution requirements. You have one for
the title, but I didn't see one for author's name or URL.

Since the FAQ is empty, what exactly do you mean by "the voting system
will be used to determine which stories get published"? You mean published
in paper form? Are you using POD publishing like www.lulu.com? a magazine?
a comercial publisher?

I have a short I was thinking of licensing CC-NC, but I'm not too attached.
CC-SA would probably work too. You can check out some
samples here: http://www.greglondon.com/hunger/index.html
