There are a few basic rules, most of which you've probably already seen. Please to be reading these before you're off to an application.
.01. Capitalization and punctuation, please. We won't crucify you for a few spelling errors, but at least try.
.02. Emoticons/acronyms/netspeak are acceptable in your character's journal entries (if you think they'd use them), but not in RP posts. They're also perfectly okay out-of-character.
.03. No godmodding. You control your character, not anyone else's.
.04. Keep the wank out of the comm. Please. If you have a problem, bring it to a mod. We don't bite.
.05. Try to be a bit active. A journal post a week, if you can. If you're going to be away, post about it in the OOC comm.
.06. Players are limited to one canon character each. This may change in the future, but this is the rule for now.
.07. Maximum character limit is two characters. (At least, for now.) That's one canon and one original, or two original characters.
.08. This is a tricky one. Keep in mind that, while the canon characters have grown up as commoners in this AU, they are still essentially the same person. Certain aspects of their attitude might change, but not drastically.
.09. The application page will tell you that your subject line should be 'Application: Character Name.' Rather, your subject line should be 'She's like an entire year!' Yes, your application will be denied if you miss this, but you'll have a chance to fix it.
.10. Any 'questionable content' (drug use, violence, sex, excessive language) should be kept behind a cut. Additionally, anything exceeding a rating of PG-13 should also be friends-locked, please.
.11. Be aware that original character applications will be critiqued a bit more harshly than canon. It's hard to make original characters that have a good balance.
.12. Please abuse the OOC comm. The mods are friendly people; we don't mind chatting OOC with you, whether it's relevant to the RP or not. Show us your new puppy, or tell us about the sex you had. (Refer to Rule #10 for further restrictions on the latter.)
.13. RP posts are to follow a format. 'Who,' 'When,' 'Where' and 'Warnings' are required fields ('What' and 'Why' are optional, followed by the actual RP post behind an LJ-cut. Observe:
Who: Tamaki and Kaoru. ('Tamaki and [open]' is allowed, if you don't have any planned scene and you just want to play.)
What: Laser tag.
When: Last Tuesday at midnight.
Where: The moon.
Why: Because Tamaki misses his brave little toaster. (What? I have no idea.)
Warnings: Fruit Roll-Ups and inflatable sheep abuse.
( Insert witty cut text here.Collapse )
Leave me alone. Too much crack.
