The Zombie plot has just a little over a week until completion. There are still characters out there who haven't had activity or notified us of hiatus. These characters will
be removed from the community if they have not done anything by December 1st. Activity needs to be on posts new to November to qualify. Please be sure that you get in there if you have a desire to keep your characters here.
On another note:
It's come time for a rules reminder.
» Don't do it. Seriously.
» The purpose of this game is that there are many different fandoms in the same place at the same time. This means you should get your character out there, and mix things up a little. Don't stick only to your own fandoms because that is really, really boring. Also, don't try to reenact entire storylines from your fandom, things here and there are fine, but this is a new place, filled with new experiences. One last thing, just because your character never ate a banana in canon, doesn't mean they can't try one in The City. (AKA - TRY NEW THINGS)
» We need to see something from you every two weeks in the form of AIM logging, comment logging, or a narrative. If you do not make this two week deadline a warning email will be sent. Activity checks will be done periodically. We're sympathetic to RL issues, of course, so please let us know if you won't be around or will need an extended hiatus. Please inform a mod directly before you go on hiatus or drop a character. Don't just announce it in the OOC community.
If you find any of your characters receiving warnings three times in a row, they will be removed from the community.
If you show no activity at all with no warning to us, you will receive an email, and then you will be removed with the option to return. If you find yourself removed from the community more than once for inactivity, you will not be allowed to return.
We felt these needed to be pointed out due to some complaints we've had and some things that we've seen. We want this game to be fun for everybody. The key word here is fun. It's a game. Godmodding makes things a lot less fun for other people. Please be careful of what you're doing, ask questions if you're unsure, ask permission to do things, and most importantly read what you're replying to and make sure your reply makes sense.
We're not very strict on activity here, despite it being in the rules, and we'd rather not feel taken advantage of because of that. We know that people have real lives, and we appreciate that. We're accepting of people who need to go on hiatus and take breaks. And we especially appreciate effort. But posting only when there are activity checks is not okay. We'll catch on, and removal will happen.
Character development is big in this community. We throw game wide plots and challenges at you occasionally, giving you a place to go with your characters and new things to experiment with. Leaving most of the play up to you guys. You decide on what you want to have happen to your characters, you decide what you want to explore. The idea of this game is that they get to meet a whole bunch of people they wouldn't have a chance to normally in a place that screws it up for everybody. That means people should be interacting with others outside of their fandoms. While we know you'd like to play with your fandom, and that's fine, getting outside of it is the whole point.
And the last point, which is not an actual rule, is log dropping. There have been quite a few complaints coming in from various places that a lot of logs are getting dropped. This really hurts the game, and hurts character progress. If you have to drop a log, please make sure that you're informing the person you're playing with. Everybody has their AIM sn and their email listed in the player contacts. Please use them. You can also PM the character journal if it comes to that. It happens to all of us at some time. But please don't make it a habit.
Now that this post is huge, we'd like to say thank you to everyone who is playing here, and we love you. You guys are awesome. You're creative and just as cracked out as we are.
