The Rules

001.

This forum has a mature content of PG13. As such, excessive cursing, gore, and portrayals of abuse is limited. A curse word here and there is alright, but excessive use of it will be grounds for editing by the mods, and/or a private warning. It's possibly to portray abuse without getting too descriptive about it, so please use your common sense when portraying it. Label your threads with a [Mature] tag, if you think your thread may be on the high end of the PG13 spectrum. And please remember, we'll likely have members who are 12-13, so please do use your common sense.

002.

Please use your characters first and last name, for your username when registering. A middle name is optional. If you made a mistake with your username, please PM me and I'll fix it for you. Please do not use all lowercase or all uppercase for the name. A prime example of a correct username would be: Christina Appleby. Underscores and other symbols are not allowed.

003.

Please provide a valid e-mail address when registering. You may have more than one character account per e-mail address. Every character should have it's own account, no sharing accounts. All character must go through the appropriate approval process first, before being played with. You should get approval from a mod/admin before creating a cannon character.

004.

Your avatar is a small image displayed below your details in post's. Only one image can be displayed at a time, its width cannot exceed 150 pixels, the height cannot exceed 200 pixels, and the file size cannot be higher than 64 KB. Your signature image width cannot exceed 550 pixels, and it's height cannot exceed 250 pixels. Your avatar has to be an image of your character. Only real images are allowed, so no drawn/anime/random pictures of flowers or objects. We do face claims on this forum, and as such, your characters image has to be of a celebrity, no pictures of yourself/friends/family are allowed. All images must be tasteful, no revealing outfits and/or nudity. In your avatar image, your characters face has to be shown. Violent, sexual, racist, sexist, and anti-religious/religious images are not allowed. Please do not advertise other sites in your signature. We'll have a section for that, and it's not your signature.

005.

Spamming is not allowed. Spamming is the creation of messages that are advertisements, abusive, or otherwise unwanted. So don't do it. Likewise, flaming and trolling isn't allowed here either. Do not post content with the intent of purposely starting conflict. If you think something may offend another member, keep it to yourself and off the boards. All in all, use the golden rule, which is usually treat others how you'd like to be treated. In this case, it's treat others politely, period.

006.

Double posting in IC threads are not allowed. It is allowed in the OOC threads, for the purpose of bumping. There is no rule in taking turns when it comes to IC threads, but please try to be respectful. People get busy, so patience is always a good quality to have.

007.

Godmoding is not allowed. Godmoding is when you control another's character without said players permission. Keep things open ended. If you write that your character lunged at another, or went to hug someone, allow the other player to choose whether they want said action to be successful or not.

008.

No Mary Sue, or Gary Stu characters. These characters can be described as being "perfect," where they can do no wrong, and everyone either wants them, or hates them because they are too pretty/smart/rich/funny, etc. It's tempting to make said characters, but it's boring, not only for the other players, but to yourself, who will end up missing out on the advantages that having a diverse character can bring.

009.

Players can post in multiple topics with a single character. But keep in mind that said threads cannot, time wise, be occurring at the same time.

010.

If you know you will be absent for more than a week, please let us know in the appropriate apologies/absent sub-forum. If a character account hasn't been active for two months, than it may be deleted.

011.

When filling out your characters application sheet, do not add any questions that weren't put into it by myself or a mod. If you do this, your application will be denied.

012.

You may not just create spells/items/weapons and assume they can be used in game. All ideas should be submitted in to the mods for approval before hand, and they will let you know if they are made cannon or not.

013.

One liners are not allowed. Please keep to an eight sentence minimum when writing IC post's. Keep the IC threads for IC writing, all OOC chatter should remain OOC, and in it's appropriate areas. Please try to use spell check, and proper grammer. You don't have to be perfect, but making the effort is appreciated. This site uses a third person, subjective narrative, in the past tense. An example of this would be: Billy moved slowly through the shrieking shack. A sudden noise from the corner of the room made him jump in shock, and he shook, afraid it might be a werewolf, or other particularly terrifying creature.
