Forum Rules and Terms of Use

Post by Dominique on Tue Jun 07, 2011 4:11 am


Forum Rules
1. Proper grammar and spelling is a must. All posts that are not well-written will be deleted. At the very least use a spell checking device of some kind. (Unfortunately I hear l33t sp33k is not considered well-written no matter how long you spend on the post.)

2. SPECIFICALLY STATE THE SETTING OF THE RP IN THE ORIGINAL POST. Yes. Which means Hosts MUST give a definitive description of the starting area of the RP.

3. Posts must have something to do with the actual RP.

4. No more than one character is to be controlled within any given post with a max of 2 main characters per thread. (This is revisable I believe it would help stop people from trying to push their own agenda while still allowing more than one character to be played. This will be discussed as the forum evolves.)

5. You may not control another character without their express permission for ANY reason.

6. A main character cannot be killed unless the original controller allows it.

7. No godmoding. You are NOT all powerful. Please respect people and the group you are in.

8. While flaming in character is allowed, there are certain restrictions. Flaming cannot be discriminatory towards any real-world race, religion, philosophy, gender, or sexual preference, and that they are characters attacking each other, not members insulting other members. Put another way: all flaming must be done in character.

9. Profanity is allowed, but there are restrictions to keep it artful. Some threads are rated M: at the beginning of their title those are mature threads that allow all sorts of cesspool of actions and language. G: is for General these are the threads that thread owners wish to keep clean and if you want to be obscene or swear up a storm PM them for permission. P: Porn we haven’t really decided if this should be allowed, but it could be useful for documentation of rp children or for people with the “Love” motivation. For now do not start these threads and keep it to PMs while we discuss this with higher ups. (All profanity and obscenity needs to be in character.)

10. You should read all announcements and stickies before posting and check often for updates. They are there to help you become a better RPer and we don’t write them for our health.

11. All roleplays will be closed after 4 weeks of inactivity. This helps keep the forums more organized. They may be reopened if there is enough interest to do so.

12. All roleplaying and discussion about the roleplay must commence within a SINGLE thread. This means that separate threads for "playing" and "planning" are not allowed. It is not necessary for these two parts of the RP be divorced, and it only serves to clutter up the forum. We have a real time chat service or private messaging use that to discuss plans.

13. Task Force have final word compared to normal forum users and Admin has final word against everyone.

Dueling Rules (Can be private or a group affair)
Note: Duels are not suggested for beginning forum roleplayers.

These are the basic guidelines that should be followed for any duel. Not set in stone, but a decent guide to make for a better duel:

1- In your first post state:
->Where duel takes place
->When the duel takes place
->Whether Weapons/Magic is permitted
->Whether NPC's are permitted
->Who you are challenging
->Your character and possibly a brief bio
-> Whether you want other people in the group to be able to interfere. (Though they shouldn’t interfere if they are honorable.)

2- Always remember that you cannot directly influence another character, therefor you cannot kill a character unless you put them into a situation they cannot avoid.

3- You are not all powerful!

4- Other members should not post in Duel if they are private. Watching them progress can be interesting, but please do not comment without permission.

5- In the event of a conflict not being able to be solved or the duel never ending PM Dominique (Kaz) He will settle things and get the thread progressing past the duel.
