Welcome to the Nexus
"So Ann Landers is the center of the universe...?"
1) First and foremost, you must be in compliance with InsaneJournal's Terms of Service. We would prefer our members to be over the age of 13. It is the responsibility of parents or guardians to determine what is acceptable viewing for children. The moderators of the_nexus_rpg (who can be reached via the_nexus_ooc) will not be policing the community posts to make the content child-safe. Content can be G through R-rated, but if something is PG-13 or higher, or you feel your post has a potential to get higher, use an LJ-CUT with a Not-Safe-For-Work warning. Also, please cut large scans or images as a courtesy. Posts which contain NSFW material and large images without a cut may be deleted at a moderator's discretion.
HOW TO LJ-CUT:
== Type this: <LJ-CUT> :: ( Read more... )
== Type this: <LJ-CUT text="NSFW Content"> :: ( NSFW Content )
2) This cannot be said enough: A PLAYER'S IN CHARACTER ACTIONS ARE NOT NECESSARILY A REFLECTION OF THE PLAYER PERSONALLY. IC is NOT OOC. If you cannot game without taking any pup's negative reactions to your pup personally, then you should not be gaming. If your pup behaves rudely, do not be surprised if your pup is treated rudely by other pups. In-character actions will have in-character consequences.
3) Out of character behavior will have out of character consequences. If you routinely treat others poorly OOCly to the point where you become a well-known regular by post mention on bad_rpers_suck (and probably before then) expect a warning from the mods.
4) You are responsible for your storylines and the involvement of your pups. If you decline from a storyline or interacting with a certain player, and people continue to try to bring you into it even after you say no, you are within your right to continue to refuse. If you have a problem RPing with someone and you cannot resolve it, try to avoid RPing with them.
5) Under no circumstances is OOC trolling, flaming, or harassment condoned.
6) Mods reserve the right to delete posts if deemed to be spam or intentionally OOC inflammatory. We recognize that certain characters IC are abrasive and inflammatory. If a moderator feels a post crosses that line, they are required to post a comment asking for the player to clarify or tone down their post, and alert the other mods to this. If there is no response or change in 24 hours, the post may be deleted if the mods agree that it is unnecessarily excessive and/or other players are hurt/offended by it. (Short version: We reserve the right to delete posts as necessary, but unless they're outright spam, the decision to delete a post is NOT one we'll take lightly, or without a very good reason.)
7) Keep your "I'm taking my toys and going home" melodrama OOC exit posts off the comm. A polite notice of departure is allowed, but ranting OOC in the comm about the comm and/or attacking other players OOCly will result in post deletion (and if it's an exit post, pup banning. If you want out that badly, we'll help you break the habit. This will be the only exception to the three strikes rule.)
8) This is a game. If you wish to keep your real self separate from your pups, it your responsibility to exercise restraint in sharing information and show discretion in choosing who you give information to. Moderators will not get into debates over being 'outed' by another player.
9) It is a player's right to decide how to play their pups, and what direction they would like to take them in. This may or may not match with another player's perception of the character, as these are all fan interpretations or AUs. It is not another player's right to dictate how someone should play their pups. If a reasonable agreement cannot be reached on the matter between players, the moderators recommend RPing around one another and never the twain shall meet. If it spills over into a fight that affects the community, the moderators will get involved.
10) If you wish to post a question that can be highly explosive OOCly (including but not limited to homosexuality, religion, politics, abortion, abuse of any form, rape, and incest) take caution. Make certain you have a legitimate in-character reason for asking, and not just for shock value. Use the LJ-Cut, and warn that there may be triggering or squicky discussions pertaining to the matter in question. If moderators ask you to delete the post, do not argue.
Rules in Relation to Characters:
1) Canon, AU, and Original characters are all permitted, as well as inanimate objects and concepts. We welcome characters from all over: Western media fandoms, anime and manga, video games, etc.
2) There is an Anti-Violence field in effect. Please take battles between pups into personal journals or elsewhere. Godmoding will not be tolerated. If your pup attempts to land a hit on someone else's pup, it is up to the other player to decide whether or not the hit connects. Any assumptions of success without player consent will be ignored.
3) On Spoilers: all release times are for official releases in the English language. One year for books, six months for movies and video games, one month for graphic novels, comic books, and manga, and two weeks for TV shows. Please use an LJ-Cut if you are posting about something heavily spoilerific, and post an OOC warning about possible spoilers in the comments if you feel it may garner them. If you do not wish to receive spoiler information in reply to your post, it your responsibility to make a note of this when making your post.
Moderator Note: We recommend and encourage players to work out any OOC differences between themselves in a mature fashion and do so on their own. If you do have concerns or things are not getting resolved, please contact the moderators and provide examples/evidence of the problem. The moderators will not judge someone just on a say-so. We need comments and other proof if the problem is big enough to take action in order to determine what action is needed. All players are held by the three strikes rule. The consequences are as follows:
2) Warning (or put on moderated posting depending on the issue)
Rules will be periodically revised as needed. The moderators reserve the right to change the rules.
We can be reached via a comment in our journals/posts if there's any questions or concerns, or through the_nexus_ooc.
