Thou shalt read and heedI. The Cbox
This should go without saying, but you need to read the rules before you finish your application.
We'll know if you don't.
i. Don't spam the cbox with advertisements for your own site or anything else
ii. Respect. Use it
iii. Do not, under any circumstances, impersonate another player in the cbox
iv. The cbox is out of character at all times.
v. Please avoid plotting in the cbox. Private messages and instant messengers work well for this. II. Joining/Participation
*Make your username your character name, first and last, proper punctuation:: John Doe
ii. Please post only completed applications
*WIPs clutter up the section and run the risk of being forgotten
iii. More on this in the registration section here
iv. There is technically no minimum post count to remain active, but you are here to play...don't make a character and disappear.
*There will be regular activity checks. If you haven't posted between them, you'll be archived and your playby lost. You can reactivate...but if your playby has been snapped up, sorry...too bad.III. Character Limit
i. Yes, you read correctly. No one player can have more than 5 active characters. We feel this is pretty generous, but we just don't want people running around with 10 characters, hogging playbys, and not doing anything with them.
ii. Character Deletion
*Museless? Need to get rid of a character? Go here
--As mentioned before, archived characters lose claim over their playbys.
iii. Post Length
*One paragraph which means 5-7 sentences. This is not a set in stone rule, more or less is up to you. Just remember one liners are boring and hard to respond to. Likewise, 6-7 paragraphs can be overwhelming.IV. We are Rated R+
i. This means there will be adult content on this site...drugs, sex, foul language, and some violence. If you are offended by any of this AFA is not the place for you.
ii. All threads of this nature, however must
be labeled [M] for mature so that they can be avoided by those wishing to do so.
iii. In addition, let us take a moment to state that the actions of individual players do not necessarily reflect the opinions/ideologies of AFA's creators or staff.
iv. Hi. We're proud of you for making it this far, so guess what? You get the first part of the code for your application. It is:: the first letter of your name/alias. Whatever you gave us in your header as your name (not the character). i.e. Ash--> 'a' Now keep reading!V. Community Behavior
i. It means treat other players with kindness and respect. ...Oh if only it were so easy...
ii. Player -vs- Character:: You are not your character, no matter how much you choose to make them like you.
*Don't take any character's actions personally. It's got nothing to do with you or them...they're just roleplaying
*In character we want tons
of drama...OOC we won't tolerate any.
iii. Got a problem with another player
*We are not your Mommies, and it is not our place to regulate your personal life. You can handle this maturely, and most importantly-privately.
if we see it on the board, or in the cbox...we will
get involved, and you won't enjoy it.
*If the problem is bad enough, and you've tried to resolve it on your own and would like some help...see us. We won't tolerate cyber bullying...that's an immediate ban from the site, even if you are doing it privately.
iv. Post Pestering:: Again, we aren't regulating here...but be mindful this can get annoying. Especially in the cbox where people are trying to chat.
v. Freedom of Speech:: Yes thanks to the Constitution we all have it. And as admin and staff we encourage it. Except we don't allow our members to start spouting hate all over our board. Racial slurs(in OR out of character), sexually discriminate, or culturally offensive statements are just hurtful. Don't do it.
