All must abide!
Please register an OOC account first. This will be your main account. One word only, and in the format of normal capitalization without any special characters (i.e. "Nomi").
Afterwards, feel free to register with your character’s first and last name in normal capitalization i.e. "John Smith."
Your character must be registered with their "real world" reincarnated name i.e. "Susan Williams" rather than "Snow White" (and no past/fairytale name of theirs as either first or last name, please, since they're reincarnated folk!)
Don't worry if you make a mistake just PM an admin and we'll fix it for you!
Playbys must be a real person. They can be an actor, singer or model but not a cartoon or anime character.
Here at "A Silver Storm" we allow almost all face claims with a few exceptions: face claims under the age of 18, face claims whose ages can't be verified, anyone who has asked not to be used, youtubers and unsigned instagram models. please take this into consideration.
Please try and keep playbys looking like the age of the character you're working on. Can't have someone who clearly looks 40, but you want to play him at 18, that's just not going to fly. We have no implemented rules on how old/young a playby can be to play a character, but as a general rule of thumb if we feel your face claim doesn't fit the age of the character, we'll have to ask you to change one or the other.
If you would also prefer to use a playby that actually looks older but would like to use for a younger character, you can use older pictures of the playby! Fansites catalog photoshoots by year, so you have a lot to choose from with many actors/actresses!
We do not accept whitewashing here on "A Silver Storm", we encourage diversity of all forms, including race, gender and sexuality!
003. Word Count!
We have no word count here at A Silver Storm. Thus said, keep in mind that we are intermediate to advanced, and we are not a one-liner rp, nor do we accepted rapid fire posting. You can write however quickly you'd like, but some people won't be able to write something as quickly, especially if they wish to write longer posts.
We are rated Mature. However we do ask that you put an [M] in the title of your thread. Most sites simply have this rating for sex, but here we do ask that you consider your thread as if it was on the screen. If your post contains any of the following: strong violence, frequent strong language, strong portrayals of sexual activity, scenes of sexual violence or strong blood and gore then you should rate it [M].
Sometimes I know it can be difficult to tell what is considered "strong" so I leave this up to member's own judgement.
Also if you feel like your post may contain triggers please respect your fellow members and put a trigger warning at the beginning of your post.
Because we are a mature site no members under the age of 18 can join. I know it sucks, right? Please do not lie about your age. If you want to know why, you can read more here. Even if you didn't intend to engage in writing smut for the safety of our members we'll have to ask you to come back when you're 18. Of course, I have no way of knowing whether you're telling the truth about your age, but please be honest and respectful
which leads us to...
Discriminatory language and behaviour will not be tolerated on this site. And if the admins see evidence of this you will be given a warning. If abuse of a discriminatory nature continues you will be banned permanently.
Don't be rude or mean to your fellow members. If you have a problem with a member then sort that out through PM (Note: PMs are logged and we'll be able to monitor your behaviour) or by contacting a member of staff and we'll try our best to deal with the situation.
Please do not harass other members in PM or the cbox to post for you, no matter how much time has passed. A respectful message can be sent to ask for a time frame, but know that people are busy, especially in the summer season. Activity checks will filter out people who are no longer with us, so you don't need to continue waiting for a post, but please do not continuously remind people in the cbox that they need to post. They know they need to post.
Also no advertising or spam in the cbox.
Without which we have no site! We do have activity checks every month which require 3 posts (per member not character) to have been made within the past month. The only time you are not obligated to complete the 3 posts requirement is if during the month past you've been on a hiatus or absence. If you're a recently made member, you get the first month to relax and not worry about the activity check at all.
We don't have any strict activity requirement, only that you should be posting and plotting with all your characters not just one or two. If we notice that you have a lot of characters and you're not using some of them, we'll have to ask you to give up some, sorry!
Avatar sizes are 250x400, and we do ask that you properly size them
Currently we don't allow any signatures. We may reconsider if that is something that members are really passionate about having but for now they're not allowed.
008. Mini Profiles!
To ensure everyone is following the graphics sizing rules and rules pertaining to the individual character created, you will not be accepted until your character's mini profile is completed. This includes having the avatar at a 250x400 size, and the information blanks filled out (with the correctly sized gif as well).
Once the mini profile is completed, your application will be accepted and filed accordingly in the Plotters section. A mini profile completion upon acceptance ensures he board has an organized and clean look to it, which makes it a pleasant experience for all of us, and for guests who are looking to join. Everyone benefits!
Because claims are a very important part of roleplaying on a board with so many options to choose from, we ask that before posting anything in character, you fill out all the necessary claims (Canon List , Face Claim , and Member Directory).
Once an admin has added those claims in, you can feel free to start and post in threads! But claims are important, so please don't forget!
