AMES AND ELIZA HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHANGE THESE RULES AT ANY TIME.
but we'll tell you if we do.
but we'll tell you if we do.
-Respect your fellow members. We will not stand for any forms of racism, sexism, or anything extremely offensive towards other members. It's uncalled for. If you have a problem with the member, please do not bring it onto the board.
-If you get into an argument with another member (a heated argument, a small disagreement I will stand for, because hey, it happens) please take it to PM, E-Mail, or AIM, Yahoo, MSN, whatever instant messenger you have.
-NO CHAT SPEAK WHATSOEVER. You may use it in the CBox, but that is the ONLY place. NEVER in posts. You do not know how irritating it is.
-Spell Check. As a writer, it's your best friend.
-If you use OOC in a post, please make it clear.
-ONE character per account.
-Minimal profanity, please. You may use it, yes, but please do not go overboard. We realize that some people find profanity offensive or rude, please respect their feelings.
-Your display name must be the first and last name of your character. Nothing like "***iLoVEwaFfLES<33". Frankly, we don't care what you do to make it fancy, but please don't go all out like it's the Christmas Tree in Times Square. Sometimes it gets annoying if you really deck it out.
-We ask that you please respect the staff. This includes graphic personalizers, moderators, global moderators, admin, etc., etc. We're here to help you with things and make this site worth while.
-Feel free to suggest things, that is what the suggestion box is for. We love to hear from you guys!
--All posts must be at least 150 words. That is really not much to ask of you. We'd really prefer if you try. This is an intermediate-advanced roleplay site. That would be, basically, 400+ words. We do not put a limit on this because we do not like to stress people. Though, please realize that you have to give the fellow replying something to reply to. Try explaining thoughts along with actions if you have trouble.
-You may not kill another character without the player's permission (the character dump for instance: Sweeney can't go around killing people randomly [unless they're false characters that don't really exist], only at the character dump).
-NO GODMODING/POWERPLAYING. We get so tired of having to say this over and over again on sites. Given below are examples if you do not know what it is.
BAD - Bob threw a stone at Ed, it hit him in the eye and he fell to the ground.
No! Not good! You CANNOT control other characters. That is the reason they have a player. It should've been like this.
GOOD - Bob threw a stone at Ed, hoping to hit him in the eye and possibly cause him to fall to the ground.
-YOUR CHARACTER CANNOT BE PERFECT - EVEN IF IT IS A CANON THAT IS SAID TO BE. GIVE IT SOME FLAWS. END OF STORY.
(but if you have a question on that, please PM one of the admins and talk about it...)
-Romantic relationships are allowed, yes. Sex, yes, but please make sure that if your thread contains sexual content (some people find this disgusting and/or inappropriate, please respect that) please label the thread with an [R]. If we find any threads containing sexual content that are not labelled, we will add it in ourselves. Also, pregnancies are allowed but you must contact the admin before certifying that your character is pregnant. I mean, we don't want a bunch of random babies that nobody knew about...
-Violence is allowed as well. Again, if it becomes graphic please label it with an [R].
-Mini-plots (drama) between two or more characters IS allowed. If it involves something major that would change the site (or site plot) in an extreme way, please contact a staff member (preferrably the admin).
-Signatures must not exceed 600 x 350. We do not want anything stretching the board. If you do stretch the board, we will remove your signature (but will save the contents) and PM you to tell you. You will not receive a warning for this unless it becomes extremely excessive.
-Rule breaking involves being in character and out of character. Breaking rules will involve two warnings and a ban. We're being very lenient on the warnings. We won't give warnings out for stupid things either, guys.
First & Second Offense - Warnings
Third Offense - Two day ban.
Fourth Offense - Week ban.
Fifth Offense - Permanent I.P. ban from Wild Card.
Please DO NOT make accounts with different usernames because one was banned. It makes me angry.
