    General Rules

    Post  Admin Eindride on Fri Jan 04, 2013 3:25 am

    • Your username must be the name of your character. In this forum, there is one character per account. We do not want pen names. We require a capital letter at the beginning of each name unless it is a prefix. This is ultimately at the discretion of the admin.

      Acceptable name: Lee Jun, Talon Angusson, Jefferey Davidson.
      Unacceptable name: Roseyrawks123, Iluvdraco, etc.

      We will automatically know if you've read the rules or not. Anyone who hasn't read the rules and just signs up with an unacceptable name will be deleted. Fair warning.

    • The rating for this site is PG-13 for language and violence. That does not mean you can go about torturing other characters or non characters. Any 'deaths' will be upon agreement of whomever is in the thread that you are in. Any excessive violence must be cleared through Admin or Mod. There will be NO sexual violence or sexual activities of any kind. Yes, you can have relationships but they will be age appropriate and will not get too descriptive. You may allude to but not describe that your characters coupled. 

    • This site is a semi-literate to literate roleplay forum. This means that grammar, punctuation and spelling are important. Capital letters and quotation marks are a must. We do, however know that for some of you English won't be your first language. In this case, we can understand some grammatical errors, but still we want to keep this literate.

    • There is a minimum word limit on posts. All posts that are in character must be at least fifty (50) words or more. There is however not a maximum word limit. Try and keep your posts at a similar length to the person that you are posting with. On another note, a thousand word post is wonderful if there is content. However, if you give a long post that another person cannot reply to, you may have to cut it back and add in some more dialogue. Try and have at least one piece of dialogue in each post . If you need help with word counting (I know I did when I first began) THIS is a free tool that you can use. Just copy and paste your post and hit submit. It'll count the words for you.

    • God Modding, god modeling, GMing, or whatever else you know it as is not allowed. This is when you control the actions, reactions, appearances of another person's character. The only exception to this rule is if you have either permanent or temporary permission to do so for a particular character. This, however needs to be visible every time that the permitted GMing takes place. Your signature is a good place to put permanent permission. If it's temporary just add in a (OOC: so and so gave me permission to GM them for -however many posts-)

    • Graphic limits. I do not want to have half a page of graphics in a signature for a brief post. It is annoying, causes lag, and is not needed. Nor do I wish to see huge avatar pictures. Both end up stretching the board. The limit is 500x200 for signatures and 150x175 for avatars. Anything over will be deleted. So pay attention to your sizes please.

    • Character limits. I know some people can make up to twenty characters and still be active and keep up with them. I myself am addicted to making new characters but then I get bored quickly so they just sit there. So I'm asking please no more than two children and six characters total. I might change this but at the moment it's staying as is.



    Rules are subject to change upon the whim and mercy of the Admins.
