PostSubject: Ƹ̴Ӂ̴Ʒ RULES!   Sat Jun 14, 2014 3:21 pm



First,

 Our very first rule is to be kind, friendly, and respectful. Treat people the way that you would like to be treated, and this means no unnecessary hostility, drama, racism, and the like. I don't know about you... but I'd like this site to feel like a second home. A place for members to mingle and have fun, like friends or family, not a place for others to get into big brawls and end up hating each other. So, do be courteous of other members... even if you're having a bad day. Feel free to express a daily trouble or concerns. Just be reminded that you shouldn't share overtly explicit personal material or intense problems... like drugs, alcohol, rape, abuse, etc. that require real assistance from real people in your life.

Remember that this site is rated PG-14. This means to keep cussing/cursing between yourselves and other members to a moderate minimum. It is allowed, as long as it isn't used excessively or any f-bombs are dropped. However, nudity and sexual innuendos/harassment towards members, even if they happen to be your significant other, is not allowed, and will result in a ban.

If you're going to join, do not just join and then drop off the face of the Earth. We want members who will come online frequently. We want members to be active, post, roleplay, and have fun. If you're going to be gone for a period of time, post here and let us know before you leave.

When registering, please remember to register with your character's civilian FIRST and LAST name as your username(like, instead of 'Sailor Mars', put 'Rei Hino). If you forget or are still deciding who to apply for/what your character's name will be upon joining, please consult a Staff Member about changing it and we'll do it for you.

Players playing a canon character and site canon are required to be online and postat least once a week. Players playing constellation senshi are required to be online and post once every two weeks. And, players playing their own original characters only are required to be online and post once a month. If you occupy a canon/site-canon character and are gone without notice for longer than two weeks{14 days}, your canon character will stripped from you and up for grabs once again. If you occupy an original character and are inactive with them for more than a month{31 days}, then the inactive original character(s) will be dropped into the 'Banished' board. If you continue to be inactive for two or three months{62 days} and have not returned for your characters, then all of your characters will be deleted and your accounts will be purged.
*However, I will admit that I am a bit lenient concerning this rule, because life takes its toll on us all, but don't take advantage of it. As long as you stay within considerate width of the requirements, nothing will happen to your characters.

Second,

This roleplay is semi-literate to literate based, which means no one liners. No two-liners. No three-liners. Each and every roleplay post must be, in the least, one whole paragraph, which is 5-8 sentences or 200 words usually. 

Your posts must be in Third Person, with pronouns like "she", "he", "it", "his", "hers", etc. and be in past tense, like "ran", "saw", "cooked", etc. No first person. No present tense unless your character is thinking. Ex: She jumped over the fence to try and save her friends. or While eating, he almost fell out of his chair in laughter! How funny!, he thought. <-- These are both correct forms of how the standard format of your roleplay post should be presented, though feel free to incorporate your writing style and whatever decoration you feel is needed -- we are, by no means, trying to change the way you write or how long your posts can be.

To avoid confusion, I would also like to see your best grammar and correct spelling, as well as justifiable forms of punctuation. Obviously "Let's eat Grandma" and "Let's eat, Grandma" has two different meanings, and we'd like for what you're trying to display in your posts to reach out to us. It's okay if you mess up every now and again, of course. We're only human, and we all make mistakes.

 Dialogue should be in "quotations", in a certain colour, or bold, while thoughts should be in italics or 'like this'. Anything other than this, and Staff will remind you of this rule. If you overlook the warning and reminder we have given you, be aware that we have the right to go into your roleplay posts and change how the dialogue and thoughts are layed out so that it applies to these rules.

Out Of Character conversations, or OOC, during roleplay should be in some form of bracket or parenthesis to set it apart from your roleplaying post: { }, [ ], or ( ).

This roleplay is in liquid time. In other words, you can have your character in more than one thread at a time, all of them happening within the same time-stream or before/after another. The only threads that are fixed points are the ones that directly relate to or are a part of the plot. Plot Threads are only supplied/started by the Staff, should move a bit quicker than normal threads, can seem a bit disorganized, and point to a certain goal or objective that will put everyone one step further in the game. They will usually involve most if not all characters to participate in one-three threads{especially canons}, and they will be discussed before being played out -- so be on the look out for Plot Parts and which characters or species are supposed to do what. 

Regarding your own threads, however, only 5 or 6 characters can join in one thread at a time, not including youma that are NPCed. 7, only if you ask permission from a staff member first. Remember that you may only join an open thread if it has 6 posts or less . After 6 posts have been submitted to the thread, and there is room for another character, then please ask the creator of the thread if your character may join in before doing so. If the thread is private and has tags, you must request permission from the thread creator before joining. Keep in mind, however, that these rules may not apply to the NPC Youma and, sometimes, even to one of the Night Generals or Dark Senshi, given that you and the members within your thread decide to want trouble/drama in the thread or a battle to occur. Both private and open threads should follow precedent posting order, though{ex; If Susie started the thread, and John replied to it, then Lee joined in afterward, the posting order would be Susie, John, Lee until someone else joined, which then would add that person to do their turn when it came around}. And... don't outdo or stress yourself -- make sure you only create and reply to as many threads as you can handle.

No spamming. Post in the correct board for everything. Adverts go in the "Advertising" board, questions go in the "Questions" board, etc. If you're new to the site and don't know where to post something, PM a staff member, ask someone in the Chatbox, or post in the "Questions" board -- we'll help you. This also calls for the rule of no double-posting. Just hit the "Edit" button and add what you need to. =-)

Third,

So we all love to make our own characters and play them out. However, it becomes an issue when your character is much too powerful or much too knowledgeable about the situation. Remember, every character has flaws. Nobody, not even the SM canons, are perfect. Even though Sailor Moon and Sailor Saturn may seem like they do, characters cannot and do not have the power of God. They have weaknesses and insecurities just like you and I, and every other person. Even Chaos and Cosmos, who we know are very powerful, have insecurities and weaknesses that make them at least semi-human. Mary-sues/Gary-stus..  
*Thus far, the only small exception to this rule is Chaos, who was powerful enough to essentially create her daughter, Eris. 

These rules also apply to power-playing and god-modeling. While you may attempt or hint to do something to someone else's character, you cannot actually puppet someone else's character without their consent. Control your characters and your characters alone.

If you apply for a canon character, be aware that you may only have three. Look at the canon lists to see which characters are available if you are interested in applying for a character from the series or a site canon. As for your original characters, you may apply for as many as five{excluding canons}, as long as you able to keep all of them active. This includes Constellation senshi, as well as any original heroes/allies, villians, civilians, knights or senshi that you completely make up. If you come to have five, and you wish to create more, please approach a staff member before submitting an application. Due to your activity on the site and how well you balance out your character activity, we may or may not agree to you having more than five original characters{plus, canons}. 

For every character you create that is approved, you must also make an account for that character. Separate accounts are required to limit confusion as well as to have a form of organisation and specify the character whom is in roleplay. However, do not just make an account without purpose unless you are registering with us for the first time or creating an account for your character who has recently been accepted. I ask that you provide an avatar that does not stretch the board or mess up your posts -- no more than 200x400 or/and a 300-ishx-500-ish signature image of the particular character for each account. We now require every character account to have a link of your character's approved application in your signature -- whether the link be standard, attached to an image, or disguised as another form of text is up to you. Image violations will immediately result in the image being taken down and replaced with a message saying, depending on which rule you have broken, that you either should find a new image that is within the required sizes or use an image that is appropriate for the site.

Fourth,

 Since this is Sailor Moon, and half of the series basically revolves around such, love and romance between characters is allowed. This includes bisexual, homosexual, pansexual, heterosexual, and even asexual relations between characters. All I ask is that you stray away from sexual scenes and acts in roleplay, as that should not be presented on the site in any form or fashion. If you must, take the details to PM, and "fade to black" the intercourse that took place in roleplay or subtly imply that the two characters engaged in the act. Keep in mind that a good majority of this site's membership will be 14 or younger, and that I don't want this roleplay to be the reason for possible mental scarring.

Canons should be played according to how they act/think in the anime and manga. Although it's up to you to pick whichever anime canon or the manga canon that you feel most familiar with, you may also feel free to mix their anime and manga counterparts for a more preferable or more playable character.  Please play them to your best ability and accordingly. Also remember that there should be no crack-pairings, and that feelings of love and crushes should stay true to canon characters. 

However, this is not to say that you can't explore certain relationships. If feelings are portrayed or strongly hinted in the anime/manga continuities,{UsagixRei, UsagixSeiya, SeiyaxKakyuu, MakotoxMinako, ReixMinako, AmixTaiki, MinakoxYaten, etc.}, I have no qualms with you and the player experimenting on a romantic level if you both agree to do so. Just remember that the exploration cannot affect the future, and while the characters may still feel a slight pang of affection for one another, that all series characters should stay true to original canon feelings in the end{Usagi should stay/go back to Mamoru no matter what, and any romance that springs from strong friendships should revert back to strong friendships}. Here is the list of Canon Pairings that you are allowed to explore; either they still have or have had chemistry at one point or another. 

Likewise, your original characters are free to mingle and have relationships with each other as you please.

None of your original characters should be related to any of the canon characters in any sense. Usagi should not have a long lost sister and Michiru should not have a cousin. It's not in the series, so it's not here.
*The only, ONLY exception is the Dark Senshi, canons made for the site and plot who were originally the daughters of the Inner and Outer senshi of Crystal Tokyo.

None of your original characters, including knights, senshi, heroes/allies, and villians, shall come from the same planets, comets/asteroids, or stars as the characters in the series. Ex; Your original character cannot be from the Moon or Venus or Ceres, or any other claimed planets/stars in the Sailor Moon anime or manga. Feel free, though, to make up your own planet/star/asteroid or create a senshi from a celestrial object that doesn't seem to have a senshi. Here is a list of celestial objects that have are in use for a player's character or suggested/wanted for an original Senshi team.

Drama and suspense in-character is good. Just don't go overboard. 

No guns allowed in the rp unless they are a toy or gag gun, or project some type of energy, beam, blast, or something otherwise approved by an admin. No bullets. At all. This is, afterall, based on a magical girl series. And, if you are to have any sharp or blade weapons, do adhere to the 'no excessive gore' and 'no killing' rules appropriately.

Fighting/Violence in between characters is acceptable, but remember the power-playing and god-modeling rules. Be fair -- win some, lose some. No controlling someone else's character without their consent, and no killing off canon characters, such as Usagi, Mamoru, Chibiusa, Minako, Michiru, Hotaru, Rei, and the like unless approved of by a staff member or otherwise essential for the site plot. Also keep in mind, however, that, if you get permission to take the life of a canon character that they, must be capable of being revived in some form or fashion not long after their demise. We don't want any canon characters to stay permanently dead. And, killing of original characters and site canons are only okay if the owner of the preferred original character says it's okay to kill off their character. Keep in mind that this is Sailor Moon, too, and that sometimes characters may be capable of returning from the dead or purified in order to become themselves again, mostly by miraculous or rare circumstances. 

Profanity in-character is allowed, too, and may be used moderately per character persona. Swearing like "hell", "damn", and "ass" are permitted, but do not drop any f-bombs.

Regarding Senshi and Civilian identities, it should be understood that most, if not all civilians, villians, and players, do not know your character's senshi, knight, or other alter-ego. It may be okay for for one or two civilians to know and the character's teammates, but, ultimately, when they are in senshi or knight form, he/she should be unrecognizable, and only referenced by their planetary senshi or knight name. One should not be able to instantly know or automatically guess that one is a senshi or knight from their appearance in civilian form, either... they should either see the transformation process or be told by a senshi/knight/whatever if the senshi/knight/whatever chooses to confess their alternate identity to them. Senshi/Knight identities, and sometimes even villian aliases, are kept hidden for a reason, often transforming behind things or out of popular sight. They can't afford to reveal themselves for the safety of themselves, their family, and their friends. Though, of course, this is not to say that they can't accidentally or deliberately transform in front of others and allow them to discover their secret -- you may play out such a revelation in the game if you wish and you have a agreed with another/other player{s} on it.

Fifth,


Everyone starts with a blank slate of five chances. During your first two violations of rule-breaking, you will get warnings. If you break the rules a third time, we have the right to strip away your most active character or a canon character. If you break the rules a fourth time, we will take all of your characters away from you and ban you from the site for a month. On your fifth and last offense, you will be banished and banned from this site forever, never to return.

Listen to Staff at all times, fore we are the rulers of this roleplay, and we hereby declare that we are able to add or remove rules as we wish.

And, if you haven't already read it, please make your way to the Plot and Need-To-Knows so you won't be lost.

Overall, just have fun, okay? =-)

Thank you for taking your time to read all of these rules!<3
