PostSubject: The Rules & Punishment   Thu Jun 10, 2010 12:48 pm

1. Cursing is allowed, as long as it's not directed at the player in particular. But please, try to keep it to a minimum.

2. No Flaming. Respect all members and be courteous. Constructive criticism for one's work is accepted though. Be friendly to other people. We all came from various places, but, that does not mean we cannot be friends. Show respect to the other players. That means no picking senseless fight with them just because you find them annoying in some way.

3. Be as active as you can. if you people can check facebook or your DA you can surely post something here too. those who have not posted in a week with no good reason will be considered inactive. please note we have an inactive thread for those who may been inactive (good reasons involve loss of internet, family problems)

4. You can only be in ONE PLACE at a time per character. You cannot be everywhere at once. So, when you post in a place, do not jump to post in another place till you done a role-play in that place. With the exception in the OOC General Board

5. Please, no extremely emo, depressed, uppity, dickish, anxiety-ridden -- just don’t make your characters unbearable to other characters. Nobody likes a party-pooper, or attention whore, and no one wants to be mean and decline your invitations to RP because of it.

6. To begin with the character limit is 2 per person (ACDC does not count as a character)

7. All sexual activity must be kept in peoples living quaters. We allow BL, GL, Hetro, Incest ect.

8. In the event you wish to delete accounts please inform an admin.

9. Your username, please use the character's full name. And for Japanese names, use the Japanese style If you wish. (last name first)

10. You must provide a full profile that and it must be approved anybody caught RPing without approval will get a strike.

11. Do not double post, triple post, or anything related to multiple posting. There is always the modify button. This rule can be ignored if no one has posted for 10 mins or that you need to bring attention to a thread OOC and your living quaters thread excluded

12. We allow for self-RP, or time skipping if the other person agrees

13. This is an open RP which means characters can join in anywhere but try not to ruin peoples moments

14. No GOD-MODDING, METAGAMING, or any of the likes. UNLESS you have consent from the other player.

If you don't know what that is:

- GODMODDING is when you use your character to control the actions of another. Like when your character throws a punch and strikes his opponent's face in the same sentence. Not cool. That means, you cannot control the other player character's action or reaction. You have to allow the other character time to react.

- METAGAMING is when your character has knowlege that is OOC KNOWLEDGE. Namely, if you personally read something that is locked as private and unhackable, your character shouldn't know what was written there because he or she wouldn't have been able to read it. Likewise, if you are given information on an event, your character won't automatically know what the hell is going on.

- Also, your character should NOT be able to call out another characters name to whom he has never ever once meant before. Unless you've given a good reason as to why and how that characters knows that other character before their initial meeting, then this rule can be ignored. (Example being: characters being private investigators, members of a mafia gang, etc. If that is the case, then it is allowed, since that is their job)

15: Any Action the ACDC does can not be stopped unless stated otherwise (please note the ACDC is not really a character)

16: Those who like to lurk if you dont like what you see then lurk elsewhere no one is forcing you to remain

17: Do not RP in OOC threads

18: You may not appear hidden

19: you cannot have 2 characters from the same faction

20: Each character may only have 1 power you can see a list of banned powers Here

disclaimer - by signing up for the forum i can and will assume you have read all the rules....these rules can and most likely be changed and by signing up you agree with the rules and this disclaimer

1. Upon breaking a rule and caught you will get a warning depending on how minor it rule break or the admin who caught you

2. breaking the rules 3 times in a week results in a 1 day IP ban

3. being banned 3 times for rule breaking will result in a 1 week IP ban

4. 3 more rule breaks after that your out

Bannings are not up for debate you will serve your full ban
