Question Question of copyright on our past stories?

This was a posting on a thread discussion favourite Mystical Realms stories.

I do not know what happened to Judas who created this thread (Anyone else know? ) but to answer this question from a few years back, a recent possibility of publishing the old stories on a Sci-Fi story site has arisen, assuming they are allowed there, given that site's restrictions.

If I were to publish there, I probably would only take them up to series 11, or even leave it at series 10, where I originally planned to leave it.

However there is one issue I need to resolve here.

As I published most of my stories here first, would there be any copyright issues of me republishing them on another site?

Can an admin / mod answer this

I would think you are entitled to the rights of your stories not TiBB

If they're your work you own the copyright, not the website on which you publish them. Unless money has changed hands or there is a contract between you and the website concerning the work, then it is much more complicated.
