The Rules

Don’t worry, we’re not tyrannical here, we just want to make sure that all writers here are treated equally and have a fun time.

1. No power-playing or god-moding – Having characters that are all powerful and amazing are not fun, it is more interesting to have characters with a few faults. Controlling other people’s character without their permission is a big no-no too, getting permission is not difficult, just ask; we’re all friends here.

2. Biographies – Please complete your character biography as soon as possible. You will not be able to post on the IC forums until your character has been approved. There is a biography templates in the ‘Admissions’ forum.

3. No discrimination – We want a varied writer base on this site and this will essentially bring together people with differing views and opinions. Discrimination and bullying is not tolerated on this site, so don’t do it!

4. Keep OOC and IC separate – Don’t bring out of character arguments into in character settings and vice versa. If you have any problems with any other members go to an Admin member, who will attempt to settle any disputes.

5. Use the correct posting format – This site uses third person and past tense for all of its posts, please use this format for all of your IC posts. Make sure that you check your spelling and grammar on all of your posts, computer programmes like work are great to use before posting. We don’t limit the amount you have to write, but try to include the feelings, thoughts and emotions of your characters as it will enable those writing with you to interact with. One-liners are never fun to reply to.

6. Please be active – Activity is key for RP forums. We won’t set a limit of how many times you must post each week, but be considerate if you are posting with another writer, it’s just polite. If you plan on being absent for an extended period of time (one week or more) please post in the absence forum so the Admin staff know not to think the worst.

7. Character limit – There isn’t one. Feel free to write as many characters as you like, but only take on what you can commit to. All extra characters must have their own account and biography (except in the case of temporary NPCs). Make sure that you give enough time to all of your characters and don’t leave other writers hanging on threads.

8. Maturity Warning – There’s a 16+ limit to all members to the site. However, we do allow posts and storylines of a more mature nature. If you wish to write mature story lines please place a warning in the thread title for those who do not wish to read that. If you don’t know how to edit thread titles please speak to an Admin.

9. Be considerate – Images or links to offensive material are not accepted on this site, so don’t post them. If you do, the post will be deleted and your account banned from the website.

10. Please the admin staff – The Admins give up their own time to make this site work so please respect any decisions we make. If you have a problem with an Admin please take it to them privately, not on the forum. Also, we always welcome suggestions, so please feel free to speak up with any ideas you have for the site.
