1. Respect all members and staff.
No flaming, racism or religious slurs (OOC, we understand that some characters may be racist or religion-ist or nationalist and that may be portrayed IC), keep cursing to a reasonable level OOC, etc. Just use your common sense. Please do not harass staff members for thread updates.2. No advertising outside of the ad forum.
PM advertising is also not allowed in any way, shape, or form. If in doubt, ask a staff member.3. Mind the forum rating!
While we're no longer a pg-13 restricted site, we still want you to shy away from the extremes. This includes things such as pornography, excessively erotic scenes (blackouts are your friend), excessively violent scenes (so don't go reenacting Saw, haha), etc. Keep your language reasonable OOC -- no F-this and F-that or swearing every other word -- but casual swears in conversation, IC, and just generally around the forum except for the cbox are fine. If you want to run a more mature rated thread, talk to Rosalie so she can set you up with a place to do so!4. Please use the edit button rather than double-posting where applicable.
5. Do not plagiarize.
Not only does it make you look like an unoriginal fool in the first place, but it is also extremely rude and will not be tolerated here in any way, shape, or form. If we find out you have plagiarized, we will ban you without a second chance. This is your only warning. If you feel you have been plagiarized or stolen from, please let Rosalie or another admin know and we will do everything we can to help you. 6. Harper Region is an Intermediate level site!
Please also be aware that rips of our site are also not tolerated and action will be taken when found. If you want to use some of our mechanics elsewhere or draw inspiration from them, let Rosalie know and she will work it out with you so long as an in-thread credit links back here and you ask us first!
Use proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation everywhere to the best of your ability, please. Capitalization is something we can understand not using OOC/in the cbox, but please make an effort to use correct grammar, caps, etc when in character. If English isn't your first language, don't worry! Just let us know ahead of time!7. Registering
In addition, please do not roleplay on the board using the sprite in place of text. For example, a post like this is not aceptable on this board:
used water gun to attack the !
You may register with any site-appropriate username. We have sub-accounts, so it's up to you whether you want to play with one account per person or individual accounts per character.8. Signatures
Signatures of all accounts must link to the profile/travels of all characters you play for easy reference. Images in signatures should be no wider than approximately 5-600 pixels. If it stretches the board, it'll be removed, basically. We're not counting pixels, but that range is a good one to aim for.
