<div class='spottitle'>THE DO'S.</div>
<br>-- <span class='t'>do respect people.</span>
<br>even if you don't like someone, please be grown up enough to keep it to yourself. if you are having trouble with this, do not hesitate to PM the admin!</br>
<br>-- <span class='t'>do challenge yourself.</span>
<br>here at TTS, we don't have a post count/paragraph minimum. we don't bar people from playing here due to 'skill level.' advanced, beginner, the ambiguous literate...
we're a roleplaying site for everyone that wants to roleplay. that said, we really want to see people striving for more, always more- we're not going to yell at you if you don't post seven paragraphs each time, but try to challenge yourself to add more detail in! We're all here to write, right?</br>
<br>-- <span class='t'>do use proper grammar.</span>
<br> everywhere. Pleasee no text speak. I mean, tlking lyke this lol is really out of date, it's the 2020s for Merlin's sake!</br>
<br>-- <span class='t'>do register with your character's first, middle and last name.</span>
<br>capitalization and punctuation is up to you, but don't get too crazy with that. If your character doesn't have a middle name, don't worry, we won't banish you. And if you forgot to put the middle name or made a mistake,
DEATH TO YOU!!!
no, really. don't worry about it. Just PM the admin or shout it out loud and clear in the cbox and I'll get to it.</br>
<br>-- <span class='t'>do contact me before...</span>
<br>before your character dies, commits murder, gets pregnant, or goes through any major trauma, before a massive hurricane destroys all of Britain, before you decide to run off and make a horcrux... Pretty much any major plot, contact me before you put it into action. If the plot involves two people (pregnancy and murder are prime examples) the other person must have okayed it.</br>
<br>-- <span class='t'>do keep in mind...</span>
<br>In-character months currently last THREE WEEKS. full moons will usually be around the middle. a PLOT DEVELOPMENT
will occur every month change, and it is very wise that you keep up with these. something new happens in the world every day, and with a cold war between the DA and the order going on, you can bet your broomstick that there's news at least once a month.</br>
<br>-- <span class='t'>do have lots of fun!</span>
<br>you can contact me (adam) via PM, cbox or my aim (numberxfortyxone), the secret phrase for your app (johnny is truant) or msn (firstname.lastname@example.org) at any time if you have any questions.</br>
<br>-- <span class='t'>high-demand canon activity</span>
<br>added 6 Feb 2010
If you are choosing an in-demand canon (weasleys, potters, malfoys, greybacks, etc) you will be held to higher activity expectations.
These are canons that everyone wants- if you claim them, post a wanted ad and then leave, it's not fair to the guests that want the character and would be active with it.
<div class='spottitle'>THE DO NOT'S.</div>
<br>-- <span class='t'>DO NOT POST ANYTHING BEFORE YOU ARE ACCPETED!!!</span>
<br>*headdesk* pleaeasseee. do not post in claims, owls, want ads, rp, etc... before I've accepted you. You can, however, post your application (obviously :D) reserve your canon, post in the OOC section and chat it up in the OUT OF CHARACTER cbox before I give the thumbs up.</br>
<br>-- <span class='t'>do not use over-wide/unclean graphics.</span>
<br> please don't stretch the board with your graphics- however awesome they may be, please have no picture (or dohtml template) exeed 500px in width. Alongside with that, Please don't use any graphics featuring nudity. I guess if your character's the revealing type, be tasteful with the pictures you choose. I don't want anyone's privates slapping me in the face as I try to reply to you, and, quite frankly, I don't think anyone else does. It's also against Invisionfree's TOS (:
<div class='spottitle'>there is no try.</div>
