|Name:||The Jungle - A Wrestling RPG|
This is a RPG, so even though we take the characters, their names and likenesses from what is portrayed on television, and maybe sometimes off, this is all made up, it's a fantasy thing. This is all fiction, which most of us are fans of, so we use our imaginations and twisted minds to do all this. And yes, you may run into Kane, calling himself Glenn Jacobs, or Rey Mysterio without his mask. We will most definitely talk about things that do not appear on wrestling shows, use wrestlers real names and possibly news gathered off message boards to further our characterizations.
Those who participate should try and keep the characters on-goings up with that is actually happening with that person. This includes injuries, movie roles, etc.
We make no claims to the sexuality of anyone involved. A great majority of us are fan fiction writers who very much enjoy reading and writing slash (slash is same sex sexual relations); so our characters will reflect that. You also have to take into account the much higher male ratio of wrestling personalities to the amount of females... you get the idea here.
Also, if you join in and your Mickie James wants to get it on with CM Punk and Punk is openly gay, move on. The same if a character is straight. These characters can be gay, straight or bi, it's up to the maintainer to determine that. If the character your character wants isn't into, het sex, don't harass them, pick someone else or... masterbate.
In addition, regarding the whole sex/relationship issue, if you join in and your brand new Dave Batista would like to see what John Cena is like, but John is already dating someone.. you must play along. There will be no crashing, talking is ok, but don't barge in. Do yourself and all other participants a favor, find out what's going on and work from there. If you crash someone's on-goings, that is a ban worthy offense.
Another example: Booker is dating Chavo in his storyline. If you sign up to play Chavo, you have to go along with the Booker relationship that was already established.
The Jungle WILL accept existing storylines from other games, or games that have died. When you apply, please let us know if you are planning to bring something in so we can make sure it works for our own existing storylines.
↔ Have fun! That is the whole point of gaming, right?
↔ You must update your journal(s) at least once every four weeks. One-liners or a survey/quiz will NOT count as an update. In addition, The Jungle mods reserve the right to monitor journals/characters that are what we would consider 'Death List' regulars and remove them from the game.
↔ There is no journal limit per player at this time. We believe our writers to be mature and intelligent enough to know what they can handle.
↔ There was a rule #4 but we couldn't afford it because it's all about the MON-EY.
↔ EVERY participant MUST include a disclaimer in their profile. We will be checking for these very regularly to ensure compliance. Lack of a disclaimer will constitute immediate banning. The IJ required disclaimer is below and MUST be in your profile/user info:

We are in no way associated with the owners of the intellectual property the character belongs to.

In your user info, your website link must be linked to the community journal.
↔ No links are allowed in your user info. Yes, we know other sources must sometimes be credited, but for the protection of the game, please just say "icons from Joe" or "information from Joe's Wrestling Site" and do not provide a link back. This goes for all types of sites, not just icons or informational, but official wrestler's sites, even wwe.com. We don't want the trouble that could possibly come from these things.
↔ Keep IC (in character) and OOC (out of character) things separate. You don't and they'll be a Samoan spike in your near future. Never ask a person who they play. If you do and we find out, you will be immediately kicked out. Capiche?
↔ If you have a storyline, but you need, say, Kane to play it out properly… ask first. Don’t use a character without the owner’s express permission. We spend a great deal of time spinning our little dramas, so please ask before doing something that might snip an important thread. By the way, if you don’t heed this warning… it’s a ban-able offense to put words in a character’s mouth or actions in their…yeah, you get the point.
↔ What happens in The Jungle stays in The Jungle.
↔ Don't steal entries, not even from yourself. It's very uncool and could get you kicked out of the game.
↔ Not all of us live on the East Coast of the United States you know. To keep things somewhat fair, please put all RAW spoilers/results behind a cut tag with a warning until Wednesdays, and all Smackdown spoilers/results behind a cut tag with a warning until Saturdays.
↔ Know more about your character than their name and birthday. A little research never hurt anyone.
↔ Spelling and grammar check is your friend...use it or you'll get a stunner. Use correct grammar and punctuation. We realize there are some characters whose improper use of grammar and punctuation is a part of their character (such as luchadors who have English as a second language). But for the most part improper use of spelling and grammar, and excessive use of Netspeak makes your journal look like a teenybopper wrote it, not your character.
↔ We require that all players be 18+ due to the content of the game. This is to protect everyone involved. If the mods find out a player is under 18, they will be banned from The Jungle. There will be exceptions made for mature and responsible writers.
↔ You'll need to prove your age, too. We require EITHER a link to a personal or 'critter' journal of some sort OR just a statement of your date of birth, which you can PM. If you use a personal or gaming journal for your DOB, our year of birth MUST be showing on the user info.
↔ No first post is required. Just fill out the application. After you've been accepted, post an introduction in thejunglerpg. HOWEVER, in order to stay in the community, you must update within one week of your initial introductory post. (Applicable to all those who apply after April 6, 2007.) This is in order to prevent people from "collecting" journals, as we want an active, vital game.
↔ ALL new characters must complete an application, even if you are already writing a character at The Jungle.
↔ Get yourself a journal, at least one icon, and AIM screenname. AIM is not mandatory, but encouraged. Journals are the life line of the game.
↔ Check out our taken/wanted/hold list.
