Hello Rpers! This is going to be a bit informal with the way we usually do this, but with Derek away I cannot post an announcement. That does not mean that this is unimportant, so PLEASE READ this completely!
I would like to remind everyone to read our rules
board. I want you to read EACH and EVERY one. It seems to me that lately people are either not reading the rules, or are not bothering to follow them.PM usage
I would also like to remind everyone that a character and the person who writes as that character are not
the same person. They are playing a character and so if you do not like the way the character is treating yours, please do not pm them and give them a hard time. Not all characters are going to get along.
Now, if there is a problem between characters that you believe needs to have attention, you can politely
pm that person about the problem, but remember it will be out of character
and nothing discussed in a pm should go into what is role played unless given permission.
If the problem cannot be fixed through pm, then you should contact myself or Derek (when he comes back) to help resolve the situation. Please do not spam another member in PM, meaning that you should not pm them over and over about something small, such as to post in a thread. That person may be busy and may not have time to post, so if you have asked them once, that is enough. Respect them and their personal lives enough to know that they cannot always post right away.
Also, if you are having trouble with someone constantly pming you and you have asked them to stop and they won’t, then please pm me and let me know of the situation. The last thing Derek and I want is for anyone here to be uncomfortable. Let us know what is going on so that we can help make this a fun place for everyone to be!Foul Language
I would also like to remind everyone that it is very inappropriate to curse at any other members of this board. It is not tolerated and, if it persists, the offenders might face suspension of the site. We like to keep things friendly here and cursing anyone, whether it be in a thread or in pm, is not acceptable. Cursing, other than Hell, bloody hell, and other words used in the HPH books are not accepted in character. They should not be used out of character either. Especially not on our boards. If I see someone using inappropriate language, I will remove that post without warning. Plot ideas
It has been brought to my attention that many plots are getting “stolen” by other members. While I know it might be fun to play out a certain plot once you hear about it, if you have not been asked or approved to play a plot that a member has worked very hard on, please do not play on that plot. Skill Points
Remember that the skill points are awarded to members at certain times and cannot just be chosen. They are allotted when a character has reached a certain point in posting, or the character has achieved something in one of our many events. When your points have been allocated, you may apply to use them, but they should not be roleplayed out or used until you have been approved
by our admin. Again, if I see that someone is posting something that is not approved, I will remove the post. I will send a warning PM the first time, but there will be no warning after that.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. Help us keep this one of the best rp sites ever!
