Taking into consideration that we are an advanced role playing board and that we are also rated 'R', I'm hoping everyone pretty much already knows the drill. For the most part, all boards have the same basic rules, so none of this should be new to anyone. Reading these rules is mandatory, and we expect it from every one of our members to keep everything running smoothly. So, without further adieu, I will briefly go over some of the basics.
*Firstly, every person needs to register with the first and last name of their characters using proper capitalization. We will not accept nicknames, short names, or anything of the sort. Your account will be deleted unless it's in the proper form.
*This board is rated 'R', so most everything is NOT for the easily offended. You may not agree with everything on this board that you read. If this is the case, then we ask that you refrain from registering and participating. Everyone on here should be 17 or older and mature enough to handle any if not all content.
*Everyone is to be respectful to one another when OOC.
*DO NOT bring IRL Drama to the board that will effect other people. If you want to talk about how work sucks or your life is miserable, that's fine. If you want to talk about one of the members on TEOO and how they screwed over your post or something along those lines, take it somewhere else. Adhere to the rule above.
*Although this is a fantasy board, we also like to incorporate reality to it as well. Not everything in Real life is perfect, so strong language, sexual themes, Drug references, and even some racial Slurs are to be expected. DO NOT TAKE IT PERSONAL. It is meant as Role Play only. Everything outside our doors to the real world is allowed to be played here. If anyone takes any IC stuff personally, then certain reprimanding will be issued. If I see anyone using IC stuff to personally hurt someone IRL, they will be BANNED. This is meant to be fun, so lets keep it that way.
* We ask that everyone use proper grammar, punctuation, spelling and past and present tenses in accordance with the English language. Use a spell check if necessary for grammatical errors. Slang dialog is acceptable for characters who speak that way, providing said dialog is used specifically for the times when a character is involved in or initiating a conversation. For those of you that use English as a second language or have a disability that prevents any of the above, we do apologize, but this rule is a must. We understand sometimes there are typos and mistakes are to be expected. But this rule is mostly for those hard to read and understand posts due to rushing through and being lazy. Please take your time and reread everything slowly if you must before it becomes an issue.
*We ask that you stay active with at least one post a week per character, per thread.
*We don't ask for a word count, but assuming that this is an advanced board and everyone who joins likes to write, we do ask for at least 3 - 5 well thought out paragraphs. It gives the person after you something to go on and keeps things interesting. Be creative.
* We do go turn base here. So if you have three people or more in a thread, please keep it in order as to the first four replies. The only exception to this rule, is the 24 hour rule. If the person next to post doesn't post within 24 hours of the last reply, then you have the right to skip over them to move things along.
*We do have a semi-character limit here. Semi meaning this. You are allowed up to four characters at a time unless you can show us that you can keep up with more. The way to do this....get 50 posts with each of the four characters before making a fifth. Get another 50 for the fifth before making a sixth and so forth and so on. If you don't want to wait for 50 posts, then delete a character in order to make another.
*We also will not hinder you from opening threads and thus do not put a limit on how many you can have or be in. But please be realistic and be able to keep up with them or we will ask you to drop a few. More threads just means more work for us and less posting from us. So keep it in perspective.
*All images should not exceed 500 pixels in width. Anything over that stretches the board.
*No Spamming. We don't want to see you advertising another board or product or anything of the such.
*Please use a name when entering the Cbox so that we can distinguish you from other Guests and members.
*Please keep all other board talk on their respective sites. Its ok to mention something, but we don't want to see a whole conversation on it if it doesn't pertain to TEOO. That's what Instant Messengers are for.
*Please keep all links respectful of others. No links to nudity will be allowed.
*We don't mind some Roleplay in the Cbox, but it can't be part of board topics and posts. For Example: What happens in the cbox, stays in the cbox. It can't be used in your posts as a past experience.
*Since we do allow Roleplay in the Cbox, we ask that all IC posts be in ().
*Cbox Actions should always be expressed with a symbol before and after the action.
