Main RulesIntroductionHi. Sorry, rules suck, I'm very much aware, but without them, this site would be a chaotic mess of crap. So please read carefully, lest you break a rule -- this would require me to hurt you. Hurt you deeply. >:| So don't break a rule, and we'll be less demonic, kay? ^ - ^AdministrationsLike every other site, the admins are in charge. You're to follow all orders of a staff member. This includes global moderators, (if in that board) board moderators, and admins. If you dislike the way they handle things or find their request unreasonable, complain to Raine or Midnight. If you dislike the way she handles things, then you're out of luck.
If you'd like to post an announcement, PM an eligible staff member to post it for you. If he or she does not reply within twenty-four hours, resend the announcement to Raine. Whether it is of importance or not will determine whether it is announced or not.
Also, if you're given powers as a moderator or admin, don't abuse them. Because, if you do, you will be terminated, deleted, and kicked off from this website. Your characters will be put up for adoption, and you will suffer the consequences of being banned from this website. >:|Posting MinimumThis is an advanced roleplay website.
This means that all In-Character posts are expected to be at least two paragraphs each and every time. This number may lower or change, depending on how each member complies.Currently, the minimum word
count is 350 words -- any less than
that, and the submit button
will not work.IC PostingIt is expected that you use proper English and grammar. Don't use "lol" or any of that chatspeak while in character. Use complete sentences, and try to put variety in your words. Also, use the spell check often, if you know you're not the best speller. If you need help, ask a staff member -- They'll be happy to help you correct your sentences and posts, so long as you've learned from your mistakes made.
Don't overdo it with cursing in this forum. An occasional curse word is fine, but don't say it in every single sentence.
No godmodding. Everybody should know this by now, so I won't bother to elaborate.
Irrelevant topics don't go in the roleplaying boards; they go into the general boards. Those topics will either be moved or deleted.CharactersKeep track of your characters. You can make up to five characters, but try to keep an equal ratio of males and females, please. It's suggested that, in order to keep track of your characters, you should keep your characters' names on your signature. However, this is optional -- just make sure you use them all often.
Members must roleplay with their character within five days of being accepted.
Characters must be roleplayed with often -- by often, I mean at least every three weeks.
Canon characters are not allowed.ActivityIf your account is unactive (meaning you've yet to verify your e-mail) for up to three days, it will be deleted.
Also, make sure you're able to log in at least once a month. Surprise activity checks will be conducted every few months, if not every month.GeneralYou're not allowed to have more than one account on this website. If you make a second, third, or whatever number account, you'll most definitely get warned/banned.
Please don't harass the other members of this site. Don't insult someone, and don't be a jerk. This kind of behavior will not be accepted in this forum, so you will be banned. Also, don't make racist comments or jokes. It may seem funny to you, but offensive to another.
Don't spam and don't flood the boards. You will receive a warning.EndingAs time goes on, boards and new features are still being added. So don't be surprised if there's something different about the site every now and then. ^ ^ If you've got a problem with the changes, either PM Raine or type it up in the FAQ / Questions / Suggestions board.
Along with the boards and new features, the rules will be updated later on, as well.Thank you for reading, and have fun roleplaying! ^ - ^
