We have done a rule overhaul to make things more stream-lined around here. You guys know the rules and we’re all adults so these will be simple things.

Please keep in mind as you consider our site: Although we do not have a word count and our application is freestyle, we do consider ourselves an intermediate - advanced level RPG site.

  1. be kind seriously, play nice. We’re easy going! Just shoot us a PM if something’s goning on and we’re happy to help.

    RP etiquette Super simple stuff guys. No godmodding, no Mary Sues etc. This also applies to everything included in this. Such as don't go posting and plotting until you've been officially accepted. Most of this stuff should go unspoken, but it needs to be at least referenced here to refresh everyone's memory! Permission masks have been set that won't allow you to post anywhere until you've been accepted.

  2. Alias Okay we don't have an alias account system here - so make sure you're checking all your accounts every day. ALSO, we do require that we have something to call you. You can use whatever name you want for your alias (except your character's name) - your real name, middle name, last name, the name of an actor/actress - anything! We do prefer you not to use your character's name as an alias though. It makes it a little difficult for us to differentiate, and we don't want anyone confused. We just want something simple so we have something to call you! However - you have to use a name for this. We're not going to call you "raider of the lost fridge" as your alias account (this has happened to me before, no lie) or "racoon girl". This isn't a screen name this is your name. We'll ask you to change it.
  3. trigger warnings we are an 18+ site, which means adult topics will be included. please always use appropriate trigger warnings. if you are going to be posting something including things such as violence or sexually explicit conduct please either insert a [M] or a [TW] t the topic title. You can do this by using the post icons located under the main post screen.
    If you are unsure what qualifies, or see something that you would like labeled as such, please PM us and we’ll take care of it! Also - admins are free to get in and add a TW or M tag to your posts if they are not included. We will send you a PM and encourage you to do so in the future.

    Sometimes things may come up in posts that we do not feel have a place on a site. This includes derogatory comments or racist remarks. This is not up for debate between the admins and the members. We will ask you to edit. If changes have not been made within 24 hours, we will remove the post.

  4. registration please register your character using first and last name only, using all caps (HARRY POTTER). That being said, you have to use real names. Don't register as "professor whatever' or 'padfoot'. You'll be deleted without warning.

    User groups. Please read our USER GROUP post. Currently students are not permitted to belong to the death eaters or the order of the phoenix without admin approval. No student may be under the age of 15.

  5. represent we like to keep things looking pretty. your avatar must fit the required size,and your mini profile must be completed. application images, post images, etc. must NOT stretch the board, or they will be deleted.
    AVATAR SIZE IS 250X400
    APPLICATION IMAGE SIZE IS 400X200
    We aren't going to accept you without an uploaded avatar.
  6. absence don't ever get sick.
    Just kidding. if you need to take some time away for whatever reason, please post in our absence form.
  7. activity of course we want you to be as active as possible! Get those threads and plots rolling!
    We do have a rule in place for the notes/owls section. You must have ONE active topic up before your character may post in these sections! We do NOT have a word count requirement. Please make an effort to match the post length of your partner. Don't respond with a rapid fire post to a 1000 word thread. If you both agree, go ahead and post rapid fire if you'd like!
  8. face claim we adhere to the general police of face-claims being appropriate to the character you are playing. If we do not agree with your choice we may offer up a suggestion. Please follow the 5 year rule. That means if you are playing somebody who is 16 years old, your face claim should be NO OLDER than 21.
    absolutely NO animated face claims allowed. We do not accept any characters under the age of 15. This is an admin decision based on what we are comfortable including on a mature site. Face claims must be older than 15.
  9. cbox The respect rule applies even more in the cbox. This is the first impression a new member may get of our site!
    You must use an alias. No screenames are allowed. Do not type in "butterxflyx69" or something silly. Use what you want us to call you.
    Please don't harass people for posts, plots, or link to open threads or plotters. Try to keep in depth plot conversations out of the cbox.
  10. RULE BREAKING We will PM you for an infraction of the rules. The PM will be tracked to allow for fairness, and you will be given 24 hours to respond. Some things we will not tolerate, such as harassment of our members, and you will be only given one notice. Further action will be determined at that time. If you have been given a warning for breaking any rules, your next infraction will be discussed at that time as well, and is up to admin discretion for further action.

This is a new site rule regarding reserving canon characters. You must follow the following rules.
  1. Reserving You MUST register the account of the canon you are going to reserve. You cannot reserve a character without an account created. This rule is in place to protect us from a guest showing up, reserving an important site canon, and then disappearing! We want to have a way to contact you for three reasons. 1- If you are reserving a canon there may be important plot elements we may need to run by you. 2- if your reservation is coming up on it's expiration date we want to be able to contact you and remind you about the looming deadline. 3- We need to be able to look at your account and see if you have logged in to determine if you are interested or not.
  2. Challenges We do not allow people to "challenge" a character. If somebody has a reservation on a canon, AND is registered with an account, we have to honor their commitment.
  3. Time Frame We hold the 5 day rule across the board. Canon reservations, face claims, applications. We also hold this to be true for registering an account and failing to post an application. After 5 days with no account activity, your account will be deleted.

  1. Pended Applications We have decided that you will have ONE WEEK to make the edits requested by the admins in the event that your application is pended. After one week from the date the PM is sent to you with NO contact from you, your account will be deleted and your character and claims will be put back up for grabs.

    If one week isn't enough, we're pretty chill. Just shoot us a PM! We just need to hear from you and know you are working on the issues.

3/3/3 Site Rating
Hey crew! I wanted to make a quick post outlining with the site rating is, and what it means, to avoid any confusion!

3/3/3 RPGRATING provides us an outline of what to expect on any given site. This involves Violence, Swearing, and Sexual content.

This is the reason why our site is 18+. It is in fact illegal for any person under the age of 18 to participate in anything regarding sexual content with somebody over the age of 18. You can run into all sorts of consent laws, even over an internet rpg! It HAS happened before!

ALSO: It is IMPORTANT to note that this law includes ALL depictions of ANY person under the age of 18 engaging in sexual conduct. That means if you are writing a character under the age of 18 you may NOT thread out actual sex on this site. As the site administrator I could end up in worlds of trouble over something so simple.

Any depictions of characters or persons under the age of 18 engaging in any sexual acts won't be tolerated here. Our rating of 3/3/3 is described as follows:

This Rating doesn't necessarily mean that the rpg will be a free-for-all, but that generally, mature themes can be expected.

Language

As a 3 rating, you are welcome to swear as much as you'd like in your posts. You're all adults here (we're 18+ for a reason people!) . We just ask that you keep it to a minimum in the site's cbox. Time and place and all that.

Violence

As a 3 rating, violent acts are permitted to be written here. The content of our site, and the nature of our sites plot, can guarantee that there is going to be some level of violence written here.

We do require TW's on posts, and for threads depicting more extreme violence please see THIS THREAD for further explanation.

Sexual Content

As stated above, we have limits on this area only on characters under the age of 18. We will not allow any member under this age to join the site, no exceptions.

An [M] tag MUST be included in all topics dealing with this. If you are for some reason unable to edit your own topic title if a thread ends in surprise sex, PM an admin, although you should have access to do so yourself.

Other Mature Topics

Drugs, drinking, and other reckless behaviors are welcome to be threaded out here. We simply ask that if it becomes a trigger warning - for example an overdose - that you add the [TW] tag. If you are unsure if your thread requires a tag - PM an admin for extra clarification and we will help you out.

Safe Space

It's really important to me that this remain a safe space for all. By reading the rules you are agreeing to use site tags appropriately when needed, and to be respectful of others. We will not tolerate provoking somebody here. If you need an admin to add a specific TW to our list, or see a thread that is not tagged that you would like to be, please do not hesitate to let the staff around here know! We will keep you 100% confidential and add the required tags asap.

TLDR;

Don't be jerks. Tag your threads when they need to be tagged. Sex, violence, and explicit language are A-okay around here as long as you're respectful. .

  1. What makes a character or a thread dead?

    Activity requirements give you TWO WEEKS to make a post. HOWEVER, we STRONGLY encourage that you post more than this. 14 days is a really long time and we would prefer to see you around here once a week. We often have other members complaining when it takes this long for a response.

    Before taking a major canon please think about this - can you commit to posting once a week? Can you be active around here? Often there are big plot events in the works and if you're taking two weeks to respond you can really hold things up.

    It is also frustrating when you wait 14 days after being accepted to start posting, especially a major canon character. We often have several people interested in writing the larger characters. If you cannot be active after being accepted, we may want to make other arrangements.

    IF GOING TWO WEEKS BETWEEN POSTS BECOMES A HABIT, YOU ARE CONTINUOUSLY WARNED ABOUT ACTIVITY CHECKS, ALMOST NOT MAKING THE CUT OFF, AN ADMIN MAY CONTACT YOU TO DISCUSS KEEPING YOUR CHARACTERS.

    Further, a thread on this site will be considered DEAD if there had been no response in 14 days. If two weeks have passed with no response the thread may be archived and closed.
