In Character Information »
- Spelling and grammar are very important. We understand mistakes happen. Try re-reading your posts to eliminate as many errors as possible.
- While we do not have a word count, it is nice to have a good post to reply to. You may not post one-liners. That is impossible to reply to. I am talking about a good paragraph or so at the least.
- You are to write in the third person past tense. i.e. he laughed, she cried, they sang. First person is not allowed i.e. I cried, I walked, I ran.
- You may not use yourself or a random person off of Google as a play-by. Please find an actor, actress, or model to play your character. Anime characters are not accepted, only real people.
- God-Moding is not tolerated. Power-Playing is only allowed with the consent of each character's owner.
- We do allow liquid time; however, keep in mind your character’s timeline and only enter as many as you can handle.
Out of Character Manners »
- Respect everyone on the site. This includes staff, members, and guests.
- Keep arguments private and do not start drama in the cbox. If you are having a problem with another board member, PM that member and try to work it out. If a peaceful agreement cannot be reached, talk to one of the staff members.
- Do not bump old threads whether they be IC or OOC. If it is a month old or more, chances are it is dead.
- Remember: this board was created with the sole purpose of having fun. So… Have fun darn it all!
