The Rules !
Registering, Applying and Characters !
When registering your character, please ensure that you do so with a first and last name in proper capitalization. As this is an Invisionfree forum, you do not have the ability to change your own display name, so please get it right the first time. If you don't, we won't shoot you or anything. Just PM one of the admins or mods. and we'll fix it as soon as humanly possible.
When applying, please be sure to fill out all the required portions of the application, which is everything, in case you were wondering. Post it in the appropriate section and you'll be good to go. Please give us at least a day to look it over before freaking out about being accepted. We will definitely get to you because we love new people to rp with!
We do have a rule on the number of characters you can have, which is ten, and we do ask that for every two females you create, you make a male character to go with them, and vice versa. Also, we HATE Mary-Sue's and Gary Stu's, so please just don't do it. You know better. So and so (or his dorky brother) is not automatically going to fall in love with your character. Your character is not going to be best friends with such and such just because your parent had a similar job. Make your character diverse, believable, and interesting and we'll totally love you a lot more for it.
As for charries doing anything in the adult department (i.e. children, alcohol, etc.), please make sure your charrie is over the age of sixteen. As for intense mature threads, PM a moderator or admin about it before you post.
Also, first years cannot apply to be on the house Quidditch team. Nor can they have their own brooms. Third years and up are only allowed to visit Hogsmeade, with signed parental permission slips of course (use this to your plot as you will.)
To be prefect or captain of the house Quidditch team, a character must be fifth year and up. As for being head boy/girl, they must be a seventh years and will be elected by a moderator or admin.
We are an intermediate to advanced site and in those regards we ask that our members post something of substance. We've all been newbies at one point in time and while we do accept people who don't have a lot of experience, we ask that if you're one of them, you do your very best to keep up. If you're having any trouble, please pm an admin. We're super friendly and would absolutely love to help you get into the swing of things.
We don't have a word count or anything silly like that because, really, who likes having such exacting requirements? It's just added stress and we think it's a little ridiculous since this is supposed to be fun, not a second (or third!) job. We do ask that you post at least two or three substantial paragraphs. This isn't second grade, so we shouldn't have to remind you how many sentences tend to be in those. We do like pretty posts and encourage coding, pictures, and all that fun stuff. If you want an example, take a peek at one of the admin or mod's posts.
We're all about good spelling and grammar, so please keep that in mind when
you're typing up your post. Spell checkers are awesome (and free) so please use
them. Everyone makes mistakes sometimes, though, and that's totally fine by us.
The absolute most important thing to keep in mind about all of this is that we are
completely against chat speak. You can use it in the OCC boards, but that's that.
Makre sure you post in third person past tense point of view and are as realistic as possible.
We absolutely understand that you have a life outside the rp world. That's cool because we definitely do too. That being said, we do expect you to actually show up every once in a while because what's the point in joining a site if you're just going to disappear. We ask that you pop in at least twice a week if possible, even if it's just to post in the chat or games forum. We understand what it's like to have a muse that's MIA, but that cannot be a regular excuse. We do ask a little more from the people that hold a canon position. For those individuals, we would like to see you here at least two times a week with a legitimate, in character post. You're one of the ones that are driving the site plot forward and nobody likes a stagnant plot. Am I right?
We do require that you have at least an avatar to represent your character on the board. Avatars may not be bigger than 100x100 and that's the size that we would like to encourage you to use.
Signatures are not necessary if you don't really want one, but who
wouldn't? As long as they don't stretch the board and contain no nudity then they
are quite all right with us. If you're not especially skilled with the Photoshop,
please post in the requests threads.
Now, on to the face claims. This part is insanely important. They have to be real celebrities. We don't do cartoon characters, anime peeps, or Myspace kids. Seriously, could you imagine finding your face representing a demon on a site? It'd freak me out too. As far as celebs go, we're not going to tell you who you can and can't use. And we won't deny your application just because we don't like your
character's representative, though if the claim is taken, then you get to go search for a new one. Certain canon face claims are negotiable. Just pm an admin
if you're not an especially big fan of the one assigned to your chosen character.
This site is in somewhat possession of a mature rating, as stated above. If your delicate sensibilities cannot handle this or you're under the age of thirteen (which is Invisionfree's rules and not mine), then you might want to turn and run away screaming right about now. Otherwise, thanks for joining and have a great day!
