All rules must be read before becoming a member or posting
your application. Furthermore, you may not post anywhere until
your application is accepted.
the main ones .
1. Spamming and / or Trashing the Site
Just don't do it. Okays? It's not polite and it's certainly won't
impress us admins or others members if you are ruining this site.
First incidence is a warning, second time a member is banned for
a week. Third time - do you really want to know? Spamming is
basically double posting, one word posts etc. Need more
clarification? PM me or one of the other admins.
2. Language and Grammar
We are a literate site, meaning one line posts are not acceptable.
Yes, everyone gets writers block every now and then so sometimes
it just can't be helped. However, if every IC post you are making is
less than 100 words, you will receive a warning. On the whole, I'd
say each post should be around 400 words / 2 - 3 paragraphs. This, of course, excludes OOC posts. Please use proper grammar and spelling.
Obviously, I understand that we all are from different countries so
spelling may be different, but please, use spell check on Microsoft
Word! It only takes a few seconds and it makes the board look a lot
neater. Typos are to be expected, but that doesn't mean I want to see
a whole post filled with them!
This is more for experienced RPers so the rating is set at PG-13. That being said, I will not condone constant sex threads or threads with graphic gore and violence as they aren't always necessary. NO GRAPHIC SEX, GRAPHIC VIOLENCE OF ANY KIND IS ALLOWED!! THIS IS A PROBOARD RULE! IF I FIND ANY OF THESE ON THE SITE YOU WILL BE BANNED AND THE THREAD WILL BE DELETED!
4. Respect other members!
Please, if you have a problem with someone, do not start a hate war.
They really are not necessary and that do not add to the friendly
atmosphere of the site. If you do have a problem with another
member, PM an admin and they will sort it out with you and said
member in the most mature and unbiased way possible.
5. The mods and admins say is final
I think this one is rather self explanatory, don't you? Respect us
and we will respect you!
the image ones .
1. Credit it
If someone makes you a signature or avatar, they probably spent
quite a lot of time perfecting it for you. Therefore, do not claim it
as your own! Credit it as their work. Similarly, don't steal others
signatures / avatars / images. It's not very polite and we won't be
lenient when we find out (and we will!) you will receive a warning.
Oh, here we go. The size of your signature does not matter on one
condition: it doesn't stretch the board. This is just a common courtesy
on your part. Avatars must be 100 x 100 pixels. Also, do not post images
larger than 500 x 300. These will stretch the board. However, post a
link if you are absolutely dying to.
No nudity, gore, graphic violence, offensive text or anything similar.
End of story. Also, no anime characters. You must have a living person
as your face claim.
the out-of-character ones .
1. Be polite
Yes, your character has permission to be an absolute cow. You, however, do not. There is no need to put down other members or trash the site when you are OOC. It's just rude.
We have an advertising section. So why bother posting links to sites you want to in any other section of the board? There isn't any point.
the in-character ones .
1. Naming your character/s
Try to be interesting! While sometimes it is hard to find a name that really suits your characters, it is annoying to see 'Sam Smith' walking around. Play around with it! Anything goes! However,
please remember to register with a first middle and last name
ALL IN CAPITALS! Obviously if you have a slip up, simply pm an
admin and we will fix it for you.
2. Limit to the number of characters
Simple; there isn't one, providing you keep every single one of them active. We don't want to see people making countless new characters & never bothering to develop their old ones.
3. NO powerplaying / godmodding
In other words; you do not control every single character on this board.
The whole point of rping is interacting with other people! So do not
make your characters all knowing of everything. As for godmodding;
just don't do it, okay? If you're unsure as to what it is; basically, it's
when you determine the actions of another character. WRONG. You
can say that is was a well aimed slap, but never say your character
actually hit the other character. It is up to them to decide whether
their character is involved.
love your friendly admins .
