Topsy turvy! Everything is upsy daysy. Topsy turvy!. Everyone is acting crazy.
REGISTERINGPlease register with your character's name in proper capitalization.
First M. Last. (Please note your character must have a middle initial.) If you make a mistake that’s okay. Just PM an admin and we will fix it.
Remember that no one knows who they truly are at this point. So when deciding the name for your canon keep that in mind. Names will be completely different. We don't allow people to keep portions of their names or have their nicknames be the canons name. The spell has ensured their identity has been completely altered.
We do not allow repeat names. This does include alternative/strange spellings. For example, if there is a Danica, you will not be permitted to use the name "Danika". Unless characters are related we also don't allow the use of repeat last names. Just scroll through our member list to see what's taken. If you need help selecting an original name, just ask! We'd be more than willing to help.
APPLYINGFor obvious reasons, we don't allow OC characters. Every character needs to have a spirit. But there are a wide variety of characters in the Disney-verse to choose from. We accept characters from animated and live-action movies. this includes Disney, Pixar, Star Wars and Marvel. We, however, don't accept the Disney Channel movies or TV series.
While we do not have a character cap we do require that after your first two characters you must have at the very least two active threads (past or present) or 5 posts in one thread for each of your characters before making a new one. That means there are no restrictions on your first two. They are free so to speak.
For every two characters of one gender, you must make one of the opposite gender.
Admins will put characters in the member group that they feel best suits their character. Sometimes things get tricky. Feel free to ask us if you're uncertain.
Once your character is accepted you will have 24 hours to complete your claims. If you haven't completed them in 5 days we will go ahead and archive your character.
CHARACTER APPEARANCEOne face claim per person, unless your character has a twin. We only accept celebrity face claims. Models, actors, and musicians are okay; internet famous, youtube, lookbook & model mayhem models are not. Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions on a certain person.
Playbys need to be a bit realistic. Someone in their 30's is not going to look the part of someone still in high school. On the other side of things, someone in their 30's is not going to look like someone in their 50's or 60's. We know some people have young looking faces so use your best judgment. We admins reserve the right to tell you it just doesn't work. We ask that you try and stay within 10-/+. Also please do not use any images or playbys that are under the age of 15 years old.
Also, since we are an 18 and over site and some themes can be on the mature side we will not be accepting character under the age of 18.
We also don't allow gender bending. But we do allow ages and ethnicities to be tweaked.
ACTIVITYWe try to be very stress-free and relaxed site, but that doesn't mean that we can allow you to become inactive and hog a character others might want or a plot someone is excited about. If you fail to log onto your account for ten consecutive days then you'll be moved to the inactive usergroup and all your threads will be put into the archive. If this happens and you still want to keep your character, just pm an admin and we'll move you back to the appropriate usergroup. If you fail to log in or reclaim your character within four days after that, your account will be deleted and all your claims back up for grabs.
Same is said for posting! If there hasn't been any posting activity within ten days with your character, they will be moved to inactive and all claims will be open. If you are able to reclaim them before someone else has, be sure to pm an admin and they will pull them from inactive. It's your responsibility to then refill out all claims. But if your character is moved back then you'll have three days to do a post and prove they are active before we move it back to inactive again.
Remember to make an effort! Do not hold up a thread for weeks on end. It's really hard to get back into posting in a thread when it's been so long.
We are sure you know the feeling of having a serious plot go down and then POOF no more Belle or whomever it is that you have. So please choose wisely. We understand that things come up in real life, so all we ask is that you give us a heads up or something. And if you feel as if you can no longer handle them then let one of the Admins know so we can set that character free and open it up for someone else. We want to keep things going. Don't fear us, we understand and we have lives too that sometimes get in the way.
POSTINGOur word count is 300+. If you are anything below the said count, you will be immediately alerted by an administrator and will need to make said changes. Please make it fair to the person you are replying to and give them something to work with. Be as descriptive and creative as possible! Interact. Put your imagination to work! Do not give them little to nothing and expect bigger in return. It's frustrating to receive three paragraphs of inner dialog and one line of interaction. This is how people end up losing muse and threads wind up archived! D:
Please post in Third person. This really is key! If you have any questions about this please don't hesitate to ask.
Also! When quoting your character, BOLD it! Make it easier for your partner to see what your character is saying.
In topic descriptions please tag the character your post is for and the month the thread takes place in. Example : Tag Tinkerbell | March
BE SURE TO THREAD WITH EVERYONE! We really don't want cliques. Nothing is more discouraging than being on a site and then realizing that you aren't apart of some special posting group that there is no way to wiggle your way into. On the other side of this everyone needs to put in an effort. We don't want to see someone complaining in the cbox about not having threads to reply to when they have made no effort to plot or even to reply to their own plot pages. Everyone has to make an effort and not just expect people to always come to you. We just ask that everyone reach out to people. Expand your characters. Plot. This is about having fun so let’s keep it that way.
Also posts need to be placed in post templates. They don't need to be fancy. Just a white background that condenses the text in fine. But it does keep everything looking neat and orderly.
ROLEPLAYINGYou see this on just about any other site, but no God-modding whatsoever. No one likes someone else dictating the actions of their character. And frankly, it's pretty rude. The exception, obviously, is if you have been given permission by the other player to do so. In that case, it is acceptable.
There is no such thing as 'Mary- Sue's' or 'Gary- Stu's' either. I can promise you no one is perfect. Everyone has their flaws. - Then again let’s not go overboard on that either. Sure everyone has their lives behind closed doors, but let’s not have each and every one of your characters either beaten, neglected, etc...
This is a literate roleplaying board. We are looking for players who are experienced in the basic rules of grammar. We're not the grammar police, we won't jump on you for a few spelling errors or mistakes, and frankly I don't even remember all the rules on semi-colons. But we really hope to see the effort put into your writing. Slow down. Take your time and Reread over it before you post. It helps to catch the most glaring mistakes.
All major plot such as killing a character or pregnancies must be cleared through an admin beforehand. A lot of discussions beforehand is going to be required before killing a character.
We are a premium board so that opens our site up to plots more mature in nature. All we ask if that if your thread has excessive violence, sexual content or anything else that you feel might need a trigger warning, that you mark your thread as such. Please put an [M] in the title of the thread when appropriate. We'll leave this up to the discretion of the members but we will keep an eye on things.
GRAPHICSEveryone likes pretty graphics and that includes us here. That being said, avatars need to be 210x400. They MUST properly size them and may not be gifs. It just seems to slow down the page.
GIFs for the mini profile will resize automatically but they need to be perfectly SQUARE or it will look funny.
We also ask that you don’t use signatures. Our avatars are large and it would just clutter the page up.
Remember Imgur now doesn't allow images on jcink.
