Questions about Game ManagementWhat is the Story Council?
The Story Council's main purpose is to prevent players from falling through the cracks as the game grows. Heads of the character groups are responsible also OOCly for their players, ensuring that no one gets "lost in the crowd."
All admins have been divided between the player groups. One or more players have also been promoted as the Head of their groups. Heads have no specific duties, but are encouraged to greet new members, plot with and run plots for their groups, pair up characters, and generally see to player roleplaying needs. Heads are responsible for their groups, but NOT LIMITED ONLY to their groups.How can I tell who plays a character?

Roll with it. Hurrah, you now have a group thread! Because the setting is an open prison, there is no true possibility of actual privacy. All threads are always open to all players.
If your character wants privacy, deal with the situation ICly. Just like you would in real life, ask ICly if the other characters could give you some space.What if I join a thread but I'm not ICly allowed to be there?
You will be ejected from the area ICly.My thread was marked 'inactive'. What does that mean?
