about activity checks

We considered our options and decided to switch the AC requirements to 10 comments per AC round, for the time being. These will still be open once every two months, with other requirements and such remaining the same, check the FAQ for further details.

Please note that requirements for applications have also switched to one thread of five comments total.

That is all for now! Feel free to ask any questions or give any input on this, as always.

Updated Activity Requirements, 2.0

Following the latest changes to the AC, we have a few more notes to add:

- The total requirement was changed from 40 (as the post used to say) to 30 total. All rules were edited to reflect this.

- More importantly, perhaps, the AC linking period has been changed. Instead of it being from the 15th to the 21st of each AC month, it will now be open from the 1st to the 15th. The overlapping period still counts the same as before, only it expands for two weeks rather than just one.

Feel free to ask any questions about this, and please note the discussion regarding the state of AC at the plotting post as well.

Updated Activity Requirements!

We'd like to inform everyone that Activity Check requirements have changed! The full information can be found at the FAQ as usual.

The important notes are:

- The overly complicated rules for individual posts have been removed, to match the current trend of these posts not happening often and usually becoming mingles rather than individual entries.
- This means all AC will be counted by individual threads.
- Qualifying threads now need to be only five comments long (per character), as opposed to the previous seven.
- The total comment requirement is 30 comments total, as opposed to the previous 35.

Timing and other details remain the same. The changes have already been put in place with the start of this new AC period.

Let us know if you've got any questions about this new system!

various announcements

As you probably noticed, we've been revamping some things! The full list of changes being the following:

- A revamp on the whole game's community layouts & information posts, including new looks for everything, re-wording of the navigations (you can easily see this in the sidebar links, as well as the mod info pages' navigators).

- A navigation sticky post, easily accessible in the mod journal / our sidebar links.

- We have a mod contact post, separate from the usual suggestions post.

- Most importantly, our brand new Test Drive meme! Find all the info at the post. This means application samples can also be done through test drive threads rather than the usual dialogue sample. The apps page was changed to reflect this.

That's all for now, let us know if you have any questions, or if anything isn't working as it should!

stats meme update

We've done a revamp of the Stats & permissions information, so please update your stats accordingly. C&Ping old information is perfectly fine, as is replacing the old entry's info with this new one rather than making a whole new post for it.

If you do make a new post, however, note it here/in the Taken lists/in the stats meme page, so we can edit the links.

rule addition

We'd like you all to check out the applications page, which has two new additions.

First of all, and that one's more easy to see, there's a line in the application template that ask for applicants to explain why their character would be a good addition to the game! It's detailed further there, and keep in mind this isn't a mandatory addition to applications, if you can't think of anything to say there's no need. But we do encourage people to at least give it a thought and consider the kind of CR or developments they could play out, when intending to bring someone over.

Second, the re-app template has an addition that is mandatory: we ask for three ideas for things the character could do upon their return. This doesn't mean it'll be monitored and, should the ideas fail, the character will not be forcibly dropped or anything. It's merely a guideline, of course, a little on the same line as the addition explained above.

If you have any questions or doubts regarding these, let us know!

rules change

Notifying everyone that the Activity Check FAQ was updated, because of the recent wave of applications.

The addition is the following:

"- Players whose character was apped up to two weeks before AC opens (and intro'd within that range of time, this doesn't concern the OOC introductions) only need to fulfill half the post requirements (1/4th of the threads reaching valid length), or play 20 comments in threads (other rules, such as the minimum length and the two character requirement still apply)."

And it covers this past AC period, so everyone who just joined and whose intro was within April should follow it.

A few things!

- First of all, check out this brand-new entry regarding item/pet requests! With the Wish Note event being used several times already, and our pondering on an IC reward system of sorts for a while nowe, this is what we've come up with. It does effectively replace the past Wish Note event, so don't count on that one any longer.

- We've also added a note to the applications section of the FAQ regarding temporary app, since it was brought up.

Make sure you read both! And as always, go ahead and ask if you have any questions.
