out of character rules
REGISTERING ● Please register with first name and last name in upper case letters. You may post in Incomplete/Complete (do not post in pending), Faceclaim, or Wanted Ads. You have five days to complete your application. Once accepted, you have twenty-four hours to get your claims done. No duplicate first or last names (unless related) - similar spelling is allowed!
RESPECT ● Be respectful of each other, of characters, and of plots. We don't tolerate unnecessary out of character drama around here; in-character drama is encouraged so long as everyone involved is on board. Always keep methods of communication with other members open. If you have a problem with another member and do not feel comfortable approaching them, feel free to run it by NAT or ELLE.
APPLICATIONS ● An admin will review your shipper application as soon as possible. If you posted in incomplete, please bump your app to say it is done. Any applications for a requested character will also be reviewed by the member who made the original request with 12 hours.
CHARACTERS ● There is a 10 character limit on this site. You have your first three characters as freebies, and any character after that, you need 50 posts on each character. Please try to keep all your characters active. We will keep an eye on your ratios and reserve the right to deny a character if ratios are skewed or if one of your characters is being neglected.
ACTIVITY REQUIREMENTS ● Characters need to be posting at least once every seven days. Longer than seven days entails an absence and needs to be thrown up on the absence board so that people roleplaying with you are aware. For a detailed explanation of how activity checks will work on the site, please refer to the frequently asked questions.
RATING ● Please, put [m] in the topic titles of threads that might be considered "mature," such as those that contain content you wouldn't want your mother reading. Tag your trigger warnings at the front of your thread title with [tw]. We are an 18+ site.
WORD COUNT | We aim to be a 250 word count site. We're not picky, but for activity checks only posts with over 250 words will be counted.
WANTED ADS | Ads may be bumped once every two weeks and you must use a site template to do so. Ads that haven't been bumped in two months will be archived. requesters remind a guest taking your ad to post in the ad so we know whats going on!
in character rules
COMMON SENSE ● These are rules everyone should knows: no godmoding, no power-playing, no chatspeak, no spamming when in character. Use correct grammar, capitalization, and spelling.
PLAYBYS ● We have a +/- 5 year rule with every playby and all playbys must be over eighteen. Please use signed actors, musicians or models for your playby. There is a standard of graphics we have here - if you can't make graphics we are happy to help, just post in the graphics shop!
BE REALISTIC ● When plotting, make sure you look up the consequences to your characters' actions. Everything is a lot more fun if we know what we're talking about. For example, if you're doing a custody plot, look up the custody laws in Louisiana.
MANDATORY THREAD TEMPLATES ● We have provided you with some templates here. These are mandatory unless you are using your own code which is hosted externally on a stylesheet. You may contact Elle to add your coding to the site if you wish. phone codes are not mandatory, only thread templates.
