PostSubject: Rules   Sun Dec 02, 2012 10:51 am


G1 ) Staff's word is law. Situations can be observed by multiple staff members, but the majority vote to make the decision on what to do is final, excluding decisions Head Admin just can't go along with and highly disagrees with. That is a rare occurance and is only there as an emergency order. This also means Staff and Staff only decide site canon. If they say something goes against the way the site works, then you must change it.

G2 ) This is a world we have crafted using parts of canon Bleach. If things are changed in canon and you have a problem with it, talk to staff. We may be able to work something out, but there is no guarantee. Some things are NOT negotiable.

G3 ) There are no other realms/universes/etc. other than those already created. If you would like another realm and/or universe, talk to a staff member.

G4 ) No meta-gaming/god modding. This means your character automatically knowing a weakness, knowing where an attack will come from with no real signs, etc. This also applies to knowing personality traits of other characters. Your character can guess, of course, but not know right off of the bat.

G5) No character is to be without any personality flaws at all. They must have problems and such things that make them "human". We're not saying that characters have to all have miserable, problem-ridden lives, but everyone will have some problem in their lives no matter how small.

G6 ) If you post something in the chat that is Not Safe For Work, make sure you say it is NSFW. This basically means no nipples, reproductive organs, underwear shots, heavy gore, very sexually suggestive images, etc. are allowed to be posted in the chat without saying NSFW right before or right after posting the link. In a thread, images like that must be posted in a spoiler with NSFW right above the spoiler.
G6a ) With how Chatango works, do not post the direct image from a site if it is NSFW. You may use the page's url or bit.ly (or similar service) to go around having to direct-link.

G7 ) No One-Upping. One-Upping is basically "x character can do this." "So what? My character can do this." "Oh yeah, my character can do THIS!" Although there is no general format, that is essentially how it flows. I know people take pride in their characters and there will come a time where people tend to say how much their characters can do A, B, C, or D - however, it would be nice if this could be toned down to a minimum. Power is in no way a bad thing. You could be the Iron man or Thor of a world, but if you don't know how to be humble or know how to keep things to a minimum, you'll be kicked. If it continues to escalate, there could be a possible ban.

G8) No overzealous bumping. Bumping is posting in a thread where you last posted to promote what you last said. This is normally done in applications to get it on recent topics. Bumping may not be done within a 5-span for applications after a single, simple "I'm finished" post to confirm an app is ready to be checked. Bumping may not be done within a 5-day span for face claims. After the span is done, you may bump once.

G9 ) A user is considered inactive if there is no temporary leave and it has been two months or over since the last Roleplay-related post. Sometimes if the user appears in the chat, then that may count as activity. This occurs only if their absence is explained and is determined to cover the entire span of the absence. This also is completely up to Staff's discretion to determine.
G9 A ) If a new member has a total of five posts or less and has not logged in and/or posted within a two week period from joining, they will be considered inactive and will thus have all characters archived and faceclaims removed.
G9 B ) The definition of post has been changed to "Roleplay-Related post." This means that ONLY actual RP posts and character apps can count towards activity.

G10 ) If the majority of the thread participants vote to have a thread dubbed inactive, the thread will be archived, causing the events within the thread to become invalid. If a thread is to be re-instated, the majority of the thread participants must vote to do so.

G11 ) If staff feels that a person is more prone to cause problems than they are to cause good things, then the admins have the choice to ask them to leave. If they refuse, the staff may be brought into a meeting to discuss banning. Staff may also ban with a 3/4 majority if they believe the person will not leave.

G12 ) Unchecked Face Claims may sit "idle" for 2 (two) weeks or 14 (fourteen) days without being checked before they are considered automatically approved. This is a temporary rule that will be further discussed at a later date.

G13 ) If a position has not been checked within one (1) week/seven (7) days, then an admin has the right to check the position. If the owner of the organization has a problem with the admin's ruling, they may change the position accepted by the admin to one equal to or less than the position given by the admin.

G14 ) If you whine to another staff member because of one staff member's decision—there is chance of being banned.

G15 ) Guilds have to be pre-cleared by an admin before you make them!

G16 ) No large signatures. This means nothing over 300 pixels tall or 600 pixels wide.

G17 ) Certain extraneous circumstances that can be considered an Act of God/Mother Nature/Crab People/etc. (computer frying, internet going out for extended periods [but NOT because the bill was not paid], house being destroyed, etc.) can allow for an extra ONE week be added on any reserves if staff deems it necessary.

G18 ) Application titles should be the character's name. Not "My Character" and things like.


R1 ) For RP posts, there is a 15-sentence minimum. Do not post short little 4-word "filler" sentences.

R2 ) No Role Playing a character without it being approved.

R3 ) Make sure a person is comfortable with what's going on in the role play before just continuing.

R4 ) If a member has not posted within seven days of the previous post, the members of the thread have the right to skip that person and move on. If the next person does not post within 7 days of the previous person, then the other members have the right to skip them as well. This process continues until SOMEONE makes a post or the thread is closed. This rule applies to any posts/threads created after today's date (30 July, 2014) OR if a thread has already passed 7 days from the last post before today's date. Those on normal temp leaves (14 days or less) will halt the thread. After 2 weeks, the members of the thread have the right to skip the person on the temp leave. Those on extended temp leaves (15+ days) are skipped immediately.

R5 ) Also, please don't try to swear TOO much. You can swear a bit, and if it's in your character's personality go for it, but please don't have every other word out of your mouth be fuck or shit.

R6 ) Rape, abuse (save for verbal abuse, see the rule on swearing), and the like are not to be done in a thread without the consent of all posters. If they ask you to stop doing something like that, it is to be stopped. If you continue (except for ending the action without breaking the 4th wall), you will be banned for one week.

R7 ) No posting in first person. We use third person other than dialogue, of course.

R8 ) No coding/graphics-heavy templates for posts. Apps are okay, but posts are a no-go. A good rule of thumb is no images over 600 pixels wide and 350 pixels tall with a leeway of 10 pixels.

R9 ) Autoplay on any Youtube or any embedded code is not allowed in any post or application what so ever.

R10 ) Unless you lose function in one of your hands, never post in 'txt tlk.' Please also try to use correct grammar or at least make your posts legible. Also, do not use the "Homestuck" style of writing with numbers instead of letters at all.

R11 ) No Power Abuse. This is a rule designed to curb possible abuses of characters' powers. A character's power may be written approvable in an app, but is abused in RP. If it is abused, then this is invoked. This affects Mature Board, Past RP, and the Arena as well. With any offense, you are asked to change the post. If you do not change the post, your character will be killed off. This is on a per-character basis. This means you can have two or three 1st Offenses, but all on different characters. If you are a repeat offender, you will be talked to by staff.

1st Offense: Verbal warning.
2nd Offense: 48 hours (rounded to the next hour) given to change and/or tone down power or app is denied until power is changed/toned down.
3rd Offense: App is immediately denied and power must be completely removed to be re-approved.

If obnoxious complaints arise because of any offense, you will be banned. If you want to discuss it respectfully, that's fine.


C1 ) No applications are to be posted in first person. You are not your character, so please use third person.

C2 ) There has to be drawbacks to all powers. No power can be absolute. There has to be a way around it. Even though sometimes the way around it is ridiculously hard to realize/figure out, it HAS to be there. There is a triangle in this. Avoidability. Blockability. Damage. A good active power must have at least the ability to be dodged, ability to be blocked, or the ability to survive the damage. This does not apply to passive powers, which have no standard.

C3 ) No full illusions. This means that a character has no way of escaping the illusion, no way of knowing they're in an illusion, etc. all at once.

C4 ) No anti-matter.

C5 ) No Emotion-based powers. This only affects powers that affect other characters—e.g. no emotion-draining powers, no "this power causes x emotion," etc.

C6 ) Blood-based powers are to be a case-by-case basis and staff can deny for any reasons.

C7 ) Time-based powers are to be a case-by-case basis and staff can deny for any reasons.

C8 ) As there are no other realms, NO "planeswalking" type magic, meaning that you go across other realms.

C9 ) While we allow 'rips' of other series' characters, please make sure they are modified to fit this site. No 'so-and-so crossed the 98th dimension to get to the timeline of New Horizons.'

C10 ) We also allow for some things to be copy-pasted... but please remove the citations. And please don't copy-paste the entire thing from a Wiki article.

C11 ) Only ONE character per application. This means no merging of siblings, spouses, etc.


C13 ) Character tiers are to be given after approval by staff. This is so we do not have members constantly giving themselves high tiers. if you believe your character deserves a higher tier, talk to the staff member that approved it about it via a Private Message or a Private Chat on Chatango.

C14 ) If an application is denied and is left in unchecked, you have two (2) days from the initial denial/modification request post to fix what is in there or else it is moved to denied applications.

C15 ) Explicit content may be placed within an application. However, there are restrictions. The first of them is that all pictures, videos, and other visual media must be placed under a spoiler. Please no actual pornographic sites (i.e. no PornHub, etc.), or there is a 75% chance you will be banned! The second restriction is on actual written content. You can EITHER put the explicit content under a spoiler tag or give the application a noticeable warning at the top of the application. Staff will remove objectionable content  at our own discretion, and you will be confronted about said content.


T1 ) If you're told to stop doing something, stop doing it. Common sense, but for legal reasons needs to be there.

T2 ) Keep sexual things to a minimum. If there is a link that is not safe for work, please tag it as such. Banning is an approved punishment if this is not done.

T3 ) If there is to be a political discussion, please do not just go "but x is an idiot." We don't mind criticisms of politicians—as most of them need it—but if all you have to say is something akin to that with nothing else to say, then please refrain from commenting. This only applies to political discussions.

T4 ) Respect Others Wishes: If someone asks you to stop something that they find to be offensive or mean spirited, please respect their wishes. If you really MUST talk about such things, at least wait until those who are offended to leave, or take it to a Private Chat or Private Message.

T5 ) Please no white/super light text. Although it is high contrast with the background on the chat—it doesn't go with the history function.

T6 ) No spamming. Keysmashing to a degree is okay, but don't do it too much.

T7 ) Just because you're alone now—doesn't mean you're alone forever. The chat does have a history function.

T8 ) No shit-talking other sites. Bad blood is not something the staff wants to deal with.

T9 ) No extremely long text. This means don't post multiple paragraphs in chat in a single post. If you can link to it, link to it instead. If it is really long, pastebin is a great free resource.

T10 ) Overuse of memes, such as the "Doge" meme with things such as "such ___," "very ____," "much ____" WILL result in a one-hour ban.

T11 ) Unless you lose function in one of your hands, try not to post in 'txt tlk.' Please also try to use correct grammar or at least make your posts legible. Also, do not use the "Homestuck" style of writing with numbers instead of letters at all.
