++. You may sign up with any username that you like, but your display name should be your characters name in caps. It will make the site look uniform and nice.
++. Staff must have one account devoted to just the workings of the site. The display name will be in all caps with your OOC nickname.
++. Don’t think that just because your character got accepted that you are free to run away. You aren’t. There will be an activity check each month, and everyone that doesn’t respond without prior notice of leave will have their account deleted.
++. Please don’t carry on arguments. If you want to have a go with someone do it over pm. If compromises can’t be made, then a staff member will be happy to step in.
++. Pictures are not to stretch the board, show nudity, be porn related, or anything along those lines. Pictures found in violation of the rule will be taken off by the staff.
++. All avatars are to be of the character and not stretch the page.
++. Be considerate of everyone.
++. The Staff isn’t always right, but we are right most of the time. Any questions or concerns can be directed to us, and we’ll try to solve them as quickly as possible. We, in return, would like our due respect.
++. The site has a PG-13 rating. [More info = v]
--. We all love creativity, so we don’t want to be overrun with Sue-ish characters. No one is perfect, and the same thing holds true for invented characters.
--. No God-Moding. This means that you don’t try to control another person’s character. This is bad and like trying to go along all by yourself.
--. Don’t be too over-dramatic. We all know that there are drama queens out there, but don’t go way over-board with the characters. Some of it'll get boring quickly. Trust me.
--. We all understand that some characters
especially tutorsmight have some foul language. This is fine as long as it isn’t every other word. We would not like to see it anywhere else though.
--. Your characters can have problems with each other and so on, but don’t take the fight out against the person controlling the character. Only the characters have the problem, not the creators.
--. Spots in the cannons may be reserved for five days, and the spots will be open again. If you become inactive then the spot becomes open again after two weeks.
--. Don't go overboard on violence or romance. Staff will be the judges of any physical fights. Romance needs to be kept at a PG-13 level. If you would like to go further PM the staff so they can create a M thread for it. No Pregnancies.
--. This site is not set on any certain time. This means that you can post anywhere at any time. This will keep things moving.
--. The post minimum for this site is a hundred words. We’re geared toward all levels of role-play, so this is a suitable goal. I don’t want to see one-line in reply to a few paragraphs worth of writing. This shows that you put forth very little effort, and it makes it harder for the person replying to you to make a decent post.
--. The site is DEATH ENABLED.
&&. Do not submit work that does not belong to you. It will result in a deletion of your account and the work not belonging to you.
&&. There may be more than one box animal of a certain species, but we'd like to keep them original.
&&. Claimed FCs cannot be used until they are opened again. This is true for everything except twins.
&&. The Rules are prone to changing. Make sure to check back often.
&&. Have Fun!
