OOC Rules!••• username
Please register with your character's First and Last name. With proper capitalization and use of lower case. Any other registered name that does not follow this format will either be changed on request or deleted.
Jane Austen - correct format
janeausT3N - incorrect format
Also, Play the Game is an APC (account per character) roleplay. So please, when making a new character, you must register a new name on the board. Thank you!••• graphics / face claim / avatar
Face claims are
optional. But if you do choose a claim, keep in mind only celebrities / models / media people can be used as avatars. You cannot use yourself, (private) pictures of people from social network accounts, or a cartoon image (including anime).
With signatures, make sure you only have one per character. Please note the sizes for both are:
Av limits // 150 (h) x 200 (w) ; --••• posting
Signature limits // 350 (h) x 550 (w) ; --
The board requires no minimum word count for replies. The only request is that you keep replies interesting enough that the person you are posting with can reply back easily.
Correct use of punctuation and grammar is a must when posting replies in the threads. Post using third person perspective (as well as use of past tense) when replying.
Remember that this board is meant for fun. Respect the personal space of your co-writers so OOC drama can be prevented. Please and thank you in advance.••• on making new characters
There are no character limit per member in this site. However, make sure that the character(s) you are portraying is active, or the staff will be pressed to request you to hold off further character creation until your IC post count goes up.
Please note, when making vampires you cannot make them older than around six hundred (600) years old. It just makes more sense for one thousand (1000) year old vampires to be doing more important things than at a school. They can come in for some events, but they will most likely be NPCs (nonplayable characters).
When it comes to face claims
and new characters, if a premade
happens to have the face you want, and the premade is not claimed or reserved, let the admins know and you may take that premade's PB. We can find another one, definitely, and premade PB's are optional anyway, they're only suggestions. ••• on God Modding
Unless you have asked permission to do so with the person you are RPing with, it's better to assume the person you RP with isn't comfortable with you controlling their character's actions. Communicate among yourselves your limitations.••• about staff and members
The staff understands roleplaying is a communal effort. That said, should any problem arise between members (Staff included) the staff will step in to deal with the situation with the board's best interest in mind. Discussion and open communication is key. If you have any problems you wished addressed, PM any of the staff members and we will try to help solve it as much as we can. The Staff have final word in the matter, but we will try to be fair with the decision.
