Please read all of these rules before applying or your application will be rejected by the moderators.
>> SITE CONTENT
First off, this site will most likely contain adult themes such as language, sex, violence, drugs, rape, and others. This is a slash, het and smut friendly community, but please rate all threads accordingly, and make sure you list warnings for things such as violence, rape, drug abuse, etc.
Please read all of the rules before you apply, and request to join all of the journals. Moderators reserve the right to reject applications they believe are poorly written or are incomplete.
>> JOURNAL NAMES
You don't have to follow any specific pattern for your username or include your character's name in it. However, we do ask that it has something to do with the character, and don't use any numbers to fill space in your username. Insanejournal has lots of usernames to offer so be creative!
We are only accepting original characters. No fandom or bandom characters, please! Pick a PB and use your imagination! You may take up to three characters for now (this number may change in time). However, don't take all angels or all vampires or all humans - spread your characters out a bit!
>> ACTIVITY AND HIATUS
We ask that you update your character journal or reply in a thread once a week. If you don't update once a week, a moderator will e-mail you with a warning. If you do not reply to the warning e-mail or make an update within one week of receiving the warning, your character(s) will be removed from the site.
If you receive three warnings for inactivity, you will be removed from the site.
If, however, you are going to be absent from the site for a little while, please let us know in our OOC community and we will mark you as being on hiatus. We do understand that real life comes before roleplaying, but just let us know if things are busy!
>> ROLEPLAYING FORMAT
Roleplaying may take place on AIM or in our threading community. However, if using AIM, once you have finished your roleplay you must post it into the threading community under an LJ-cut.
All roleplaying is to be done in third person, and we ask that each post be at least one or two paragraphs. No one-liners, please. Correct spelling and grammar is a must (use a spell checker!), and no L337 speak.
Character journals are not used as blogs on this site. Instead, you can use them to play out e-mails, phone calls, texts, etc between characters. E-mails and texts are obviously first person, but please roleplay phone calls in third person story format, as if threading.
You must tag every post in the threading community with the names of the characters that are involved.
Please use the form below when making a new post in the threading community, and then post the rest of the text behind an LJ-cut.
As expected on any roleplaying site, please keep OOC and IC separate at all times. If you don't like the character someone is playing, don't let this affect your relationship with the player. And if you don't like the player, don't make your character hate theirs. It's childish and we can do without that kind of attitude.
Godmodding is a huge no-no, obviously. Godmodding is where your characters knows everything, including things that he or she shouldn't, or when you take control of another person's character. Don't say your character punched another and broke their nose - say he swung a punch, aiming to break his nose. See the difference?
If you have any beef with another player, or you want drama resolved, please inform a moderator.
No M-Preg. Period.
No killing off your character unless you have spoken to a moderator extensively about it, have made your case, and they have allowed it. If you want to leave the site, just leave, don't kill off your character. Someone else might want to play him or her.
Rape, drugs, abuse, violence, incest, slash, het, smut - they're all allowed. Put warnings on threads accordingly. If you have a problem with something, just don't read it. That simple!
If you want to drop a character, just inform a moderator, and you can take another. However, if you are constantly switching around with characters, we will have to take action.
Only one version of any PB can be allowed in the game at any one time. However, if you want to make twins, or can think of a good reason for doubling a PB, and the person who currently uses that PB agrees, then we will allow it.
