Make sure you read / have read the rules. And know them. Because if you repeatedly break the rules, you will be removed from the community. There are some rules that are currently being looked over by members of the RP, who shall remain nameless.
There is no minimum posting requirement for now, but it is appreciated if your character updates on a regular basis, which would be about one post every week or so. If your character goes for a long period of time (more than a month) without updating, the mods may choose to remove your character from the game.
There are still some characters who have not been keeping up with their journals. If you do not have time to do this, then you do not have time to RP. You journals should be updated at the very least, once a week. And along the same lines would be AIM RP. You do not have to do it all the time, but if you are one of the bigger characters, you should be doing this at least once a week. If you're going to be resistant or snotty about it, please leave. We're not enforcing this rule very strictly, and if you're an active roleplayer the journal isn't as important. But this is a journal based RPG. So please try and update once a week or so.
No Mary Sues/Gary Stus.
If you character is the best at everything he/she does, we don't want you here. Same with getting whatever you want in the RP. You character has to give and take with those that he/she is playing with. Your character should not be getting the best of every situation just because they can. You may win some, but remember that you have to lose some as well. No one likes a Mary Sue/Gary Stu. No one likes a manipulator. If you think any of this applies to you, please, reevaluate your character. No big deal.
As a note to all members: If you don't check your character's journal very often, please add the community to your regular journals friend page so you can catch updates like this one. We only make important posts in here, so please, just take the time to look at this.
If you have any questions or comments about what we have said here or have anything to add, please contact EricaGold at AIM: imeantheend or at her journal imeantheend or any other way you know to contact her.
Keep in mind this is not an attack on anyone, but merely a prod in the right direction. If things haven't shaped up by Christmas, we are more than willing to put the community on temporary hiatus while the characters we kicked out are replaced.
Also, if you are currently wishing to take on another character, all new characters must go through the application process, so check the userinfo for the taken character list. If the character says taken, please don't ask about it. We keep up with the userinfo, so if there is a change we will update that first.
Note: The Winter Ball will be held this Friday evening at 6:00 pm Pacific Time , which is 9:00 pm Eastern. If this does not work for you, please let us know asap so we can reschedule.
