Okay, every site has got 'em, so don't act surprised. Just think of it as a fun experience. I'll try to make it somewhat enjoyable. And please don't lie and say that you read these buggers. I'll know. We'll know. And most importantly, the rotten tuna fish sandwich under your bed will know, and it will crawl out from the confines of the dust piles, and devour you.
Please register with a FIRST and LAST name. I would prefer that it was written like, "Moritz Stifel," rather than, "MORITZ STIEFEL," "moritz stiefel," or my favorite, "MoRiTz StIeFeL." If you make a mistake, no problem. Just send one of the admins a message, and we'll fix it for you.
Don't join and then leave forever and ever. If you join, intending on roleplaying here, but life gets in the way, fine. No biggie. But don't join just for kicks and then leave me alone. I'd have to stay here with my co-admin, who smells like rotting cheese. Just kidding. See? I can be funny.
Applications Once you post your application under the PENDING thread, you have exactly one week to finish. If you need more time, simply say so. If, after seven days, we don't hear from you, we will archive your application. You may request to have more time, and we will give it to you.
Applications will be reviewed by the admins here at HUYL, and we reserve the right to deny them without having to give reason or cause. We will, generally do so, but if you decide to give us a snarky attitude, we will invoke this rule.
Please use the application template provided. I know that should be a given, but I've seen people use applications from other sites and it's like, "Whaaaa?" Don't do that! We put one on here for a reason. Silly.
Choosing a Playby
This is really important. I don't care who you use. Really, I don't. We have come up with a suggested playby thread, so if you're having trouble, look in there. If you don't like those people, send us a message and we'll be more than happy to help you out.
Please don't use a forty-something year old for a fifteen year old, or vice versa. I really don't want to see Miley Cyrus as the headmistress of the school. Not only does that idea scare me, but it makes things look a little...weird.
It's fun, right? If it's not, why do you do it? Let's keep it fun. So, if you want to roleplay, start a thread. You don't need to ask permission. Just do it. If it's got some mature themes going on, just label it as MATURE, or place an "M" in the title. That doesn't mean just throw it in the title like so though: "PriMe." Yes, I've seen it done.
Keep all drama in the roleplay. Don't bring it anywhere else. Drama is fun, but I don't want to see people fighting anywhere other than the IC forums.
Remember, the year is 1891. For those who don't know, that was over one hundred years ago. They didn't have cell phones back then, and sadly, Starbucks hadn't been established. So, you cannot meet up for coffee at Starbucks, nor call you call someone up on your new, pink Blackberry.
Stay in character in the IC forums. You can make OOC remarks, but make sure you distinguish that you're talking OOC.
This board is rated "M" for mature. That means there's gonna be sex, and violence. And yes, even homosexuality. Get over it, or leave. I'd prefer that you kept the graphic descriptions to a minimum. We don't all need that vivid of an image. Also, swearing is O.K. Don't get all effy, effy, eff, every other word though. It makes it really confusing, and it's just a bad word!
Be nice, plain and simple. Don't spam up my C-Box. I don't like seeing people spamming. It hurts my feelings.
Just be nice to each other, k? Follow the golden rule, don't push, don't shove, share your snacks. Sharing is caring. Love everyone on here. And please, please, please, don't be that member that drives everyone crazy because they break every, single, rule.
I love you already. Thanks for reading, and have a fabulous time here at Hymns Upon Your Lips.
Oh! And there is no secret word. I think that's just a dumb idea to include that. Why bribe people to read the rules, right?
