These are the rules of the site. Please be sure to follow them. You will be warned once, regardless of which rule is broken. After this warning, if you do it again then you will be deleted.
P O S T I N G
- Please make sure they're at least two lines (sentences) long.
--If you're having trouble with what to put into your posts, then maybe something they see, hear, smell, feel, think, etc.?
- None. Zilch. No chat speak. If there is chat speak, the post will be deleted and you will be warned.
- There is no need for double posting.
-- There is a modify button... Please do use it if you need to.
- God modding is when you control another character that is not an NPC (non-playable character) in your post.
Bam smirked at Melissa. Her smile faded and Bam's smirk grew. This would be brilliant. He aimed his fist at her face and she flinched as he hit her.
That, above, would be an example of blatant god modding...
-- Though, please feel free to control NPC's in your posts. These would be nameless citizens and possibly friends or siblings of your character that aren't taken.
C H A R A C T E R S
- Play bys must be humans.
-- Please, no scene queens. Actors, actresses, singers, footballers, etc. but no MySpace scene queens and no cartoons or anime characters.
-- The use of child actors, any minor under the age of thirteen is prohibited. Using the face claim of any actor/tress under this age is known as child exploitation and must not be used under any circumstances.
Mary Sue / Gary Stu
- General names for perfect characters. They're the ones who everyone loves and want to be with. Please, none of them. Humans have flaws.
-- Bella Swan is a Mary Sue. Cedric Diggory is a Gary Stu. (Twilight and Harry Potter characters, there.)
- Ask an admin (Brandon Napier or Melissa Clark) about more than one character.
-- You must post with your characters for a month before asking for another, else the answer will be a no.
- Please stick to your group.
-- No Citizens acting like Rebellion members. No Citizens acting like SMILE members, either. All groups have good things and bad things about them.
G R A P H I C S
- Not too big.
-- Yes, 700 x 700 is too big. The average is about 500 (length) x 200 (height).
- 100 x 100.
-- They'll be resized by Proboards anyways if they're bigger.
- No nudity.
-- It makes your characters look cheap and actually isn't all that nice to look at. Male toplessness is allowed
