☆☆ GENERAL RULES ☆☆
☆ Be polite and respectful to other members. Drama among members is not welcome. If you are having a problem with another member, please send them a private message. If someone is harassing you or the problem cannot be resolved on your own, let an admin know.
☆ If someone requests you put a trigger warning on a post, you will put a trigger warning on that post. This forum is made for people to have fun, and sometimes writing about something dark can be an experience, in writing, in character growth, etc. But be respectful of the other members of this roleplay, please. If a person does not listen to your request, tell a staff member! Please mark the thread title with a TW/CW, and then a short, non-graphic description on the post it happens or on the first post of the thread.
☆ Nothing that breaks Proboards' PG-13 rule. If you really want to go beyond PG-13, then take it to a separate chat please (NOT PMs).
☆ In accordance with the previous rule, please be over 13 and don't lie about it. It's also part of Proboard's rules.
☆ We get sometimes people just can't write a lot of words, and that's fine, we're not strict on this, and hence no word count. Just please do your best to match your partner's post so they aren't posting 600 words each time and you give them the bare minimum.
☆ No life-changing, natural events on this site without staff approval. This means no fires, floods, earthquakes, etc. If it happened in your character's past, however, it is perfectly acceptable.
☆ If someone is making an open thread where they have a somewhat limited range of character types they want it to be open to, make an OOC comment at the end or start of the post. (For example: ((My character is a high schooler and looking for friends, so I'd like a character that is in the same grade, and has an interest in XYZ.)) )
☆ If someone isn't sure the character they were considering responding to an open thread with is a good fit, ask first (both in cbox or in a private message is fine)
☆☆ CHARACTER RULES ☆☆
☆ Use the live action actors when available.
☆ Please make a separate account for each character. If you use the same email, or go to the two little people down in the right hand corner, they will be linked, it keeps life easy.
☆ You can register with whatever name you'd like, but please change your character's name to the character's modern day name, using Last First. (EX: Wei Wuxian, Wei Ying, or if an alternate name was chosen as his modern-day name is all acceptable.)
☆ Please keep your signatures to under 600 x 200 to keep the board looking nice.
☆ Any ethnicity is accepted. Original characters are accepted.
☆ If making an original character, when using a face claim please stick to no one less famous than a Youtuber.
☆ You must have a finished mini-profile before your application is accepted.
☆ No god-modding. Unless you get permission from the other person, you can only control your characters, no other characters. Just because you told a character to move, don't say they did so. (EX: O He told them to move aside, waiting impatiently to see the other person's reaction. X He told them to move aside, and when they did, he sat down.)
☆ No perfect characters. Your character can't win every fight. You can't have every man/woman falling at your character's feet.
☆ Please post only in third person. This means no "I," "we," or "you," unless it's being spoken or thought.
☆ Please let a staff member know if you want to kill a character or have them move. Please know if you decide to kill a character, you absolutely cannot bring them back. For moving, we will consider adding a board for them in a new section, but we will want to know why. (did they move for a purpose (school, family dynamic change, etc)?) If you are having them move because you don't want to RP them for a while, let an admin know. Make sure to specify it's for only that character and mention you need a break RPing them. Any other reasons will be discussed either between the admins or with the member wanting to move their character.)
☆ Since one of the members is legally blind, please do not use templates in your posts, or keep them to a minimum (i.e., posting a picture above the reply, or centering the reply).
☆☆ ACTIVITY ☆☆
☆ If you decide to make a new character, you must finish the application within one month, unless an admin is otherwise notified of a special circumstance. If after one month you have not completed the application, your member profile will be deleted and your application will be archived. (If/When you come back, however, an admin will be happy to help you get the old application back. However, after a year, if it is still archived, the profile will be deleted.)
☆ Stay active !!! Keeping this site looking active is difficult with only one or two people online. Please try to log in to all your accounts at least once a day. I know sometimes people get busy, though, but please let an admin know if you will be gone for longer than a week. Additionally, as long as you stay active, there is no character limit. ( Please put 'chenqing' into your bio to prove you read the rules. You will not be accepted otherwise.)
☆ If you have not logged in after one month without posting a hiatus, you will be deemed "inactive" and your character will be removed and your threads archived. (Meaning you don't have to be gone forever! We do still want to see all of you!)
☆☆ CHATBOX ☆☆
☆ Please no advertising in the chatbox.
☆ Please no spamming the chatbox.
☆ Please keep your cursing to a minimum in the cbox. If it gets out of hand, you will be given a warning. (However, unlimited (within reason) cursing is aloud between characters in threads)
☆ Do not impersonate anyone from the site. Doing so will result in an immediate ban.
