There is nothing worse than having loads and loads of rules, when most of us know them off by heart anyway. Most of them are common sense too.
So to recap...
You can register with whatever name you like for your character. But register as their whole name, first then last name.
2 - CREATING YOUR CHARACTER.
Fill in the application as detailed as you can. We like detailed applications, but we don't want you to spend forever doing them. We're here to have fun, not spend all our time working out what our character's like and dislikes are. Most characters change and develop anyway. After registering your character card should be filled in within 1 week. That's 7 (SEVEN) days. After this time your character will be deleted and you will have to re-register your character again. There will be a limit to registering your character more than twice. (More than twice and you'll need to contact me).
3 - RESPECT.
What I like to think is one of the most obvious rules is that you must respect everyone on the site. Don't fall into the trap of being dragged into heated drama situations OOC. It's not nice and people tend to get hurt. That said, in character it's fine.
- Never thought I'd have to put this, but please extend your respect to the admins. We're there to help you, run the best member-friendly site. We are only human, not some robot that have no feeling :( That said, we don't want you to feel that you can't come and talk to any of us. So even if you just want to chat, feel free to do so. *hugs*
Each character MUST be represented by a person and a real person only. Anything else whether it be anime or any other art work isn't acceptable. If you're stuck on finding a play by or need help then just ask. I've found a lot of them for friends.
5 - GRAPHICS
Your avatar may be up to 150 x 200 but no larger. If you have a problem scaling a picture down, then ask and we can do it for you. There is a problem at the moment and I'm not sure how to fix it but for avatars I can/will size them up manually for you.
Signature/banners are to be no bigger than 500 x 300. Again if you have a problem getting them to this size then ask, and we'll try and work something out.
ALL pictures on the site must not be more than 500 wide!! It stretches the site too much and the pictures will be taken down.
Please don't hotlink pictures, if you don't have a photobucket, tiny pic etc account then please talk to me and I'll host them for you. Don't be scared to ask. It's not a problem.
6 - RATING
It is rated R/MATURE.
This means that everything is allowed that happens in real life, but we do like to not have teen weddings/engagements/arranged marriages every time we turn around. Also if your character needs/wishes to get pregnant, then talk to us and I doubt there will be a problem. If you feel that this is what your character wants then pm one of us and we can discuss it.
We won't tolerate any characters having sex before they're 16 years old, where it is legally acceptable in the United Kingdom.
If you wish to get more graphic with your characters we have a private section that you can use that is password protected. Here you can do anything within reason obviously.
As it says above, we're a mature site, and we know that swearing is an every day occurance. We're aware that characters are going to swear but don't make it every other word, or every sentence. This just makes the post unbearably boring to read.
8 - TEMPLATES
Important one this. I know a lot of sites have templates for posts, but there's some parts that are annoying to at least me.
We're not that kind of website/rp site that encourages all the bits at the bottom like 'status' 'playing with whoever'. If a post is unfinished then write 'unf or unfinished
If you want to put a pic at the top then that's fine and up to you. I don't have a problem with that.
Put simply, we DON'T allow templates thst roll up and down. Standard static ones are as long as they don't alter or tamper with the style of the post. Check with us before you put one one. If you don't don't be surprised if it gets taken down.
9 - Word Count -THIS IS IMPORTANT
Due to our increased ability of members it is now accepted that posts are at least 250 per post. Basically try to match the person you're playing with, and please no one liners.
Well there's the basics if you ever need to recap on them. If you have any queries or feel that we've missed any thing off, then please tell us. We're only human at the end of the day like you and we make mistakes.
