Yup! Thats right Ladies and gentlemen, its that time again. Times to get down to the nitty gritty and lay down the law.I mean, if you don't have law your entire world goes crazy, right? Right. So here we go, Im going to try and keep this as simple as possible so no one gets confused. Im also going to try and keep it semi-short yet still get everything i need to say in.
( CBOX )
Okay. So this is really easy. Basically, the normal. Don't spam my chat with other people websites. I put allot of effort into this wonderful website and I really really dont want other people coming here just to look at sites. Unless its a tester site, or perhaps caution and such, then don't do it. Just dont. Your post WILL be deleted if you put a link to another RPG site in your name. Also, try to refrain from chat speak? i know its a chat box, and i accept things like LOL and LMFAO but then theres ones that are like FGHDKGHFSJDFD which no one but you understands and its rather annoying. Please also respoect other members AND ADMINS. We all work hard to keep this site beautiful and functional. This site has Absolutely no tolerance for cyber bullying. This includes harassment, Rude behaviour, cussing people out, and even more.
( POSTING )
So this is generally the controversial thing. This site is a advanced/semi-advanced/mediocre RPG site. therefore we expect a minimum of 150-200 words per posting. Templates are welcomed. We'd also like you to refrain from going to sexual on us. If you want to get hot and heavy go to PMs. The password is shifter"
( GRAPHICS )
So, I know not everyones the next picaso. But some people are very good at graphics and its generally nice to have a decent idea what your beautiful character looks like. Signatures cannot exceed 500x300 in width and icons 150x200. But whatever you chose DO NOT STRETCH MY BOARD.
( GENERAL )
Alright, so heres the basics. The three R's here are, Respect, Reply, and...well i haven't quite gotten the third, but bear with me. Anyway, I covered all the posting things up there. But this is pretty much just a reminder that in this big/small whatever you want to believe world of ours, the reality is how you act towards others does effect how they act towards you. So keep that in mind when talking to members. Also, there will be an activity check every month. We'd like to log on and reply at least once a week unless a legitimate reason is given otherwise. If your going away for a prolonged period of time do two things. Post in the absence board, and place the letter in your name so we know when reading threads why you haven't replied. If you'd like to be deleted place [D] in your name AND post in the absence board. This way we know that you really dont have time for us anymore. Before deleting we'll send you a corny little message with hearts and tears, because we really will miss you. You MUSTJoin with a first and last name.
( CHARACTERS )
Characters can be unique and shift into any animal. We allow homosexual characters here for both genders. If you're offended by this, don't join simple. Please keep the shifting unique and realistic at the same time. The animals can range from horses, to eagles to cats/dogs. Any animal is welcomed here. If you are going to make a werewolf, remember that they are arrogant and snobby and believe that they should be ruling the shifter species. They generally are BIPEDAL when they shift. If you've seen THE HOWLING, then you'll know. If not, this is a pic of one: CLICK ME .If you aren't full blooded werewolf, then it is not BIPEDAL. Only full blooded PURE werewolves are bipedal. You may have unique coat colors, but nothing fantasy. Eyes are free to use your imagination. As for the rest of the animal shifts, coat colors can vary. As well as the eyes but no fantasy markings. Again no mary/gary stues allowed.
There is no age minimum here on SOS, but definitely dont have a newborn shift XD. There is a separate group for animals that aren't listed. These are called LONERS. HUMANS are also welcomed and allowed
( APPLICATIONS )
So here's the gist of it babes. You have a week to fill out the template provided. Dont change the template, leave it as is. Someone worked hard on that. And if You'd be so kind as to keep the male:female ratio even? As in, for every two women you make you make at least one male. We dont accept Gary or Mary Sues here. Everyone in human kind and even (the supernatural kind) have their flaws. Even Superman had his kryptonite, besides. No one likes perfect people. Their annoying as f**k. No double face claims unless you've checked with the other person and they want twins. Aside from that, keep there story reasonable. Not EVERY person got knocked up and has seventeen babies. I dont want unrealistic people. We can have Alcoholics, Pregnant teens, and even people with five nipples...okay maybe not that one...but keep it even. We dont need a town thats completely fucked over. Kay?
( END )
So thats about it. Try not to double post on threads, uhm, the password for the application board is _______ <--[you fill in]. Sorry that took a little longer then i thought it would to cover all the basis. Keep in mind admins retain the right to add onto the rules as they see fit. Dont get too sloppy with your posting, we do stalk you guys. Its our jobs. Now get to it you busy bee ! Lets start this party.
