Obligatory rules post
Here is the rules post potential players will need to read before they apply.
Note: As the Mods, we reserve the right to change/add/delete rules. If the players have a problem with the rules, they can talk to us via IM or e-mail about it and the rule in question will be considered for modification.
1.) If you are not a member, DO NOT POST IN THIS COMMUNITY, THE CHARACTER JOURNALS OR THE PLAYER'S JOURNALS.
2.) You are allowed a maximum of three characters.
3.)Once you're in, act like the good RPer you presumably are. No Godmoding, no whining, no being pushy, and remember: IC =/= OOC. Take up any and all problems you have with the Mod. No causing drama. On a similar note, if your character starts acting OOC, you will be talked to about it.
4.) No extreme crack. Don't do anything you know your character wouldn't do, like Snape suddenly wanting to embrace the world and sing happy songs and all that.
5.) Proper grammar and spelling is a must (although there will be exceptions for little children and insane characters). Spell check, people. It isn't that hard.
6.) Warn us OOCly if you will be away for a lengthy period of time. Indefinite hiatus is not allowed, and will be counted as dropping a character.
7.) Any posts with an R or NC-17 rating must be behind a LJ cut and have a warning detailing whether it is for violence, language or sexual situations. Any NC-17 post is also to be f-locked to the community.
8.) Any huge story plots must be run by the mod beforehand.
9.) No OCs, ever.
10.) This RP is yaoi, yuri, and het friendly. Don't like it? Play elsewhere.
11.) To show that you've read the rules page, you must place "Bunny" in response to "Avada..." on your application. Otherwise, you will be asked to read the rules before resubmitting your app. Please do not apply unless you are 16 and older. Your birth date must be listed on your normal journal's profile page, and yes, we will be checking.
12.) Once you are accepted, please join the community with your character journals only, unless you are a moderator.</b> You can, however, comment in the your normal IJ, if you have one. That said, please refrain from commenting on RP entries with anything aside from your RP IJ.
Unless it's a specific offense, we have a three strike policy.
The exceptions to this rule are the following:
a. If you go behind the mod's back and implement a plot that will change the current story line in a major way, i.e. Tom Riddle killing everyone in Hogwarts or something.
b. You are rude or lewd to another player (for instance, cussing someone out/repeatedly asking to pair your character with theirs, even when faced with a "No" answer).
c. You have been inactive for two months (that is, have not commented, done a log or thread, or posted IC), and/or do not reply to an activity check. Hiatus is not included here.
If you do any of the above, the strike rule will be ignored and you will be asked to leave immediately. Please note that this list may be added to later on.
