Please, take the time to read threw these important rules of the site. Thank you.
001: Always respect the administrators and their decisions. No one but an admin has the right to make a decision or assume that something is okay. Our PM boxes are always open on the rare times that one of us is not available to talk in the cbox.
002: Harassment is not okay. Reminders and harassment are two very different things, but more so if you're going to a person on IM. Please try and keep site stuff to the site unless a particular member has okayed you messaging them on such a matter.
003: Please register with your character's full name or as much as will fit. There is an 18 character limit on user names so should a full name not fit, try a first and middle or cutting a name down. This is to try and avoid gaining another persons posts in the form of an advertisment or another members deleted account. Also please make sure you do not tend to have duplicate names it may cause confusion if characters have the same names. You maybe asked to change your characters name.
004: Discrimination in any form will not be tolerated.
005: Please respect this form and it's members.
006: You MUST be over thirteen years of age in order to sign up to this forum. If we find out you are under thirteen, you will be removed as part of the proboards code of conduct.
007: Stealing from this site will result in serious consequences.
008: Swearing and vulgarities serve little purpose in day to day life, so it isn't necessary from day to day on a forum.
009: Advertise only on the advertisement boards.
010: Please try and avoid slang or the substitution of numbers as letters (Bcz itz annyin! N 2 cmplec8ed!)
011: Do not ask people for personal information such as telephone numbers and addresses in any boards or in the cbox, if you feel you have the right to request this information, please ask via PM but be warned that harassment for such is unacceptable – no means no.
character & posting rules
012: These are general rules for any roleplay, but just to confirm, we do not accept godmodding in anyway, so you cannot control another persons character in anyway unless you've had complete consent, also there is no such thing as a perfect character, your characters weaknesses should always fairly outweigh the strengths and over powerful characters are not only slightly unfair, they're also hard to play with.
013: Please try to be active, we understand being busy, we're all busy so we accept that it can sometimes take a while to get a post up or that there's times when posting just isn't an option, but we also know that it doesn't take more than a few minutes to sign in and let us know, either in an away message on the board or in the cbox.
014: Please tag posts appropriately with titles such as “open” and “closed” and should you wish to join a thread tagged as “Open” with over a page of posts, please PM the post starter before hand to see if this is okay. Any complaints will result in a post being removed.
015: Posting in character is only acceptable in any part of the forum or the cbox once you've been pre -approved. [More information is available when you get the application form]
016: Your face claim must be a celebrity and not an anime or cartoon character, we apologize for any inconvenience this causes anybody.
017: We ask that everyone has a signature and an avatar in their account, this helps break up posts and distinguishes different characters. We have a request thread and a lot of capable artists on the board if you're unable to make your own. Icons are 200x400 px for the hover and 150 x 150 px for the inner avatar. Any images that stretch the board will be removed. [Maximum site size is width=500px]
018: We do not have a word count on this site. We do ask that you keep up with the members you are posting with and the average post size on site is two paragraphs. So please try to keep up.
019: We will be accepting no playby's under the age of 16 as a better safe then sorry to avoid any violations at this time. We hope you understand. Thank you.
020: All Canon characters will be under a four week probation, after which time the stuff and other members we may deem fit (e.g. characters yours is closely related to) will decide whether we feel you are portraying this character well enough to proceed. We may then offer advice on how to play the character and give you another trial.
021: All Canons are required to post at least twice a week and have at least two threads with separate partners at any one time.
022: All Canons should be signing in every other day unless admins know any other reason.
023: Admins have the right to ask anyone to create a non-canon first so we can grasp their ability to play a canon first.
024: Be kind.
025: Be respectful.
026:Follow the post key.
027: Don't advertise or spam.
028: No persistent 'emo' stuff in the cbox. This is supposed to be a fun environment so please be aware of the mood you are setting.
029: An admin's word is final!
030: Please no in character until your character is accepted.
031: Again, remember this is for FUN.
