Chat, Forum, & Wiki Policy

Chat, Forum, & Wiki Policy

All of the following are expanded on the other Site Policies and are meant to work together with them. Please contact any member of staff, or submit feedback for any questions.

Chat Policy

  1. Lobby Etiquette
    1. Please keep all discussion in the lobby friendly and welcoming at all times.
    2. REMEMBER: Welcoming people and being a good community member can earn you a beat.
    3. Topics to generally avoid:
      1. Real Life politics, religion, sports.
      2. Sharing sensitive IC information in the public lobby.
  2. Adult/Erotic Roleplay
    1. Please keep this to the non-public rooms at all times.
    2. For resulting pregnancies, please see our policy on that.
  3. NPC/Staff Roleplay
    1. Yes, you may use NPCs and Staff that are on your sheet passively in scenes.
    2. This NPC is not a secondary character for you. Keep all RP passive and minimal.
    3. Keep the interaction to a minimum. Remember they have their own wants and needs.
    4. Child NPCs
      1. You may never roleplay any child NPCs (even your own).
      2. Only STs may use these NPCs in official scenes to drive plot and story.
  4. All other behavior must follow our general site policies as well.

Forum Policy

  1. Registration
    1. Anyone can register for a user account on our OOC forums.
    2. To become a Player and see the IC forums, you’ll need to follow the information on the Invite System Policy page to be assigned to the player groups.
  2. OOC Posts
    1. All posts must be in line with our typical code of conduct.
    2. “Don’t be a jerk”! Keep all communication friendly and welcoming.
    3. You MAY NOT post IC information in the OOC forums.
  3. IC Posts
    1. These posts may be antagonistic, but keep in mind; IC actions = IC Consequences.
    2. All information posted in IC forums is privileged IC information.
      1. Spread the information ICly, not OOCly.
  4. How to “refer” a friend?
    1. Login to your forum account and go to the User Control Panel.
    2. Copy the URL provided to you after “To refer a member to this board, direct them to” and send it to your friend to have them use it when they sign up.
    3. Give them the invite code you’ve been given and link them to Invite System Policy.
  5. All other behavior must follow our general site policies as well.

Wiki Policy

  1. PC wikis are required once you’re sanctioned.
    • You must make a player wiki before you go IC.
    • If you want help with this, staff can assist you!
  2. Imagery & PC Portrayal (From our Code of Conduct Policy)
    1. All character images use on our website, or linked to externally from our website, must be of models that are able to be confirmed at least 18 years of age at the time the image was taken.
    2. All “play by” models must be credited on your character wiki. Your MAIN picture should be a picture of a real person (photograph), credited to that model. If you are using artwork, drawn, or non-photograph image, for additional images on your wiki please credit the artist or where you found the artwork. (This is for Creative Commons purposes.)
    3. No image may display nudity, explicitly or implied, and MUST considered Safe For Work (SFW). If you are choosing someone who has a lot of Not Safe For Work (NSFW) pictures in a simple google search, please warn your fellow staff and players on your wiki when you credit your model used with the tag (NSFW). The easy litmus test is this: if you can get arrested for indecent exposure wearing it in public, then you may not use it as a character picture. Examples of NSFW content: Nipple pasties but otherwise full breasts exposed, nipples showing through shirts, public hair visible, genitalia exposed but cleverly covered with a fig leaf, ect.
  3. No Wiki “Vandalism”
    1. “Vandalism” can be…
      1. Changing anything on a player’s wiki that you do not have permission to change. (Images, text, ect.)
      2. Re-adding removed quotes (See IC Quotes) or other content.
      3. Making changes to any setting or NPC pages you do not have permission to change.
  4. IC Quotes
    1. IC Knowledge: If you leave a quote on a character wiki, that quote becomes IC knowledge.
      1. Using quotes to find out information about a character you have never met is metagaming and will be treated as such.
      2. Quotes containing venue specific information are assumed available ONLY TO THAT VENUE.
    2. Editing Quotes: Quotes left by other characters cannot be edited beyond formatting and/or spelling or grammatical errors.
    3. Removing Quotes: Quotes can be removed by the wiki owner, but not if it has already been responded to IC. Once the quote is removed it cannot be responded to IC, and it is treated as though it never happened. If a quote is removed in such a manner, reposting the same or similar quote will be considered wiki vandalism.
  5. All other behavior must follow our general site policies as well.
