You need to be at least 18 to apply, since the community may contain sexual situations, violence, and other such things.
EMAIL the mods with your application BEFORE you try to join the game, otherwise you will be rejected. The mods’ email is TTMODZ@GMAIL.COM
Once you are accepted, friend the game communities, make a character journal and post a comment on this entry.
In-character journal entries should be in first person. All of them need to be public, but if you are “hexing” private to one character or a group of characters you can do something like this:
[Hexed private to Marlene McKinnon]
[EDIT] Just to be clear: The main community is for threads, owl posts, and info that is relevant for all the characters in the game to know. Anything else is posted in your private journal.
Words that are struck through like this are not readable to other characters.
For threading in the main community, please use this format:
Please be active in the community. You are encouraged to make journal entries on a regular basis (at least once every two weeks) and also participate in threads. If you are inactive you will be contacted by the mods. If a problem arises, be sure to let us know so we can replace the character if need be.
You can have more than one character, but the limit is three. It is recommended, however, that you chose three different characters that don't interact as often. Such as picking James and Sirius. You would be having a lonely time. This is not a rule, but we, the mods, advise it.
Please be respectful of other players and remember that you are in control of YOUR CHARACTERS ONLY, and only that character’s thoughts and movements.
Write properly (no 'chat speak', please) and stick to Britspeak. Remember there are certain slang words that weren’t around in the 1970’s.
Pick a PB that is appropriate for your character! For those who don't know, PB stands for 'Played By' This is an actor/ess that you can use as your character. For instance, a good PB for Sirius Black is Ben Barnes. pb_updates has a ton of PBs, and is neatly tagged for help. (There are even tags for recommended Harry Potter characters!)
Don’t create major plots, such as death or pregnancy, without consulting the mods first.
There is NO TOLERANCE for harassment of any kind. No character bashing, or any discrimination of sexuality or race. You will be warned fairly; a warning, a slap on the wrist, and then kicked out. We are all adults here, so let's not make this an issue. We are here to have a good time!
