Most important rule EVER. Be respectful to not only the admins but the other rp'ers and guests who visit the site as well. We all come here to unwind, to have a little fun, and to relax. So I don't want a pm box full of people complaining that you won't leave them alone, ok? If someone is a bother,or is harassing you or anything of that nature, come to one of the Admins, don't start a pm fight or cbox fight, either can and will get you in trouble.
2) REGISTRATION & APPLICATION
You can register with your characters FULL name or their CODENAME. First and Last names please. We ask that you register ONE account PER CHARACTER. Make sure to follow the registration steps before you Role-Play. Also make sure that your face claim is not taken. Diana is our Membership Admin, any question or doubt, please PM her about it. If from some reason you do wish to drop a character, please PM, Diana, informing her about that decision of yours. 2.1 REGISTRATION STEPS:
Like it is stated above, please register your character with first & last name, or the codename. In case of a Canon Character, make sure the character you are registering isn't already taken. Canon Characters have to be reserved using the reservation tag found on the Cannon List.
Then make your Face Claim using the tag, that you find in that thread/forum. Make sure that you wont be claiming an already in use PB, unless it is a twin or clone of the character using that PB.
Afterwards, post your profile, using the Profile Template. If you know you wont finish it at once just write the WIP or anything similar so that the Admin be aware that the application is not finished.
Your profile will only be approved after you have your face claim filled and your application finished. You have seven days to make sure the character is done or it will be archived.
You can have as many characters as you would like. But your FIRST character has to be a Canon. If you take multiple character's then you are expected to stay active with EACH of the character's you take. It is OK if you decide that you'd like to drop a character, though we do ask that you inform a member of the staff before you do so.
Also if you have any doubt concerning a character which is not at the canon list, please do PM asking about it to the Membership Admin.
We are also limiting the number of cannon Kryptonian's characters. A player can only play ONE
. This is a way to prevent a single player to have multiple "supermen" on their fold. We like to give equal opportunity to all players.
We all love them. They are so cute, I know lol. So avatars will be 150x200 and Banners will be 500X300. Just PLEASE nothing Pornographic or Offensive on them. Same goes for any picture used for your character's pic. Please keep these images smaller than 500x500 to keep from stretching the board.
This is a rated PG-13 to Rated R site. Meaning anything from drug deals, gang beat downs, sex (rape or consensual), and drinking all can and may happen here. However we do have a Mature Forum, that is password protected, set aside were all of these will take place, for the sake of those who are too young or who don't wish to read them. If you would like to participate in a Mature thread, than you will need to PM an Admin for the password. For any Threads that contain any of these, we ask that they are kept from becoming excessive, and if there is any sexual content, we ask that you use "fade to black".5.1 M-THREAD FORUM ESPECIAL RULES:
No player under 18 years old, can have access to the M-Thread Forum. Only
Staff members can give a player the password. Each player that will participate on the thread needs to PM the Staff asking the password.
M-Threads are not only for sex oriented threads. This is the place were all the gore and graphic, explicit violence between characters happen.
As such, no character under 16 can participate of a M-Thread. No matter if the character is canon or original. If the character is under 16, it can't be there.PERIOD.
The Staff will monitor the M-Threads, if the rules are infringed, there will be a warning to all players who have characters involved in that thread and will possibly have the thread deleted.
6) CBOX & CBOX USAGE
The Cbox has a rating of PG-13. There will be a few rules to follow while you're using the cbox. First and foremost, absolutely NO Cussing on the cbox, please. Secondly, no causing drama for our members OR the staff. No fightin, and absolutely no discussion of anything sexually or drug related, this includes posting links to anything considered Pornographic. We also frown on advertising through the cbox as well. All of these things can lead to receiving a ban from the cbox if you are caught doing any of them, so we suggest you adhere to these rules. We also frown on spamming, but if you do, the board will automatically ban you, so just don't do it.
(The Advanced List of CBOX Rules
Now this board is more believable then most of those around, this means that we understand that a super-being's power may be more than able to destroy multiple rooms, a building, or even the street itself, and that different villains and hero's are stronger than others. However, powerful attacks such as the ones stated, will not be done every time they use them and some of the canon characters will need their power level will be down played. Such obvious examples would be character's such as Jean Grey, Professor Xavier, Superman, and others. We ask that your own common sense be used but we will also provide help when the application is being graded.
Godmodding such as making a character completely invincible when fighting, suddenly developing new powers/skills, or writing so your attacks always hit and do heavy damage etc etc, is strictly forbidden, simple as that. When it comes to controlling other member's characters, we ask that you don't do it, unless you have permission from the character's creator to control it, first.
Here at New Universe we'd like to ask that all members post at the VERY LEAST about one time in each of their threads a week. What this means is that if you have one thread then at a bare minimum we expect it to be posted in at least one every week if you have two threads then thats two posts a week and so on. That also implies that if you have different characters and are involved in different threads you will have to post with each character involved in threads.
Of course, we do encourage a higher level of activity though, and would like to see posts every couple of days but once in each thread a week is fine at the very least. We ask that if you are unable to post for a certain amount of time, and you are able to, we ask that you leave us a LOA (leave of absence) thread, so those who you are in threads with know where you have gone. We do understand that situations arise where you are unable to post a LOA. If you disappear for a long amount of time (more than a month) without leaving a LOA, than your character will be considered Idle, and will be moved out of the Active characters.
