Re: 01: Start Here: Request to Join; Rules and Guidelines.
Here are some simple rules, mostly common sense and courtesy:

i) For content in our In-Character posts, how about if we try to write them as if they were right out of a good book: conversation, description, style, continuity?

They don't have to be alike, they can evoke your character, but nothing extreme please!

Minimize/avoid: quotes from other characters, copying, "in reply to", thoughts in italics, and other things not a part of our book.

ii) When you enter a thread, please indicate at the top, the thread that you came from. When you leave a thread, please indicate at the bottom the thread that you are going to. Exception: when there is a time gap.

iii) Use colors for conversation. Pick a color that you like.

iv) If you cannot post regularly when it is your turn, try to fit your conversation in to what the others in the scene are doing/saying. You might just have to listen!

v) Each character should try to contribute to the scene, as a whole.

vi) Please note if/when you will be inactive and for how long! Not reporting in subjects one to becoming an NPC after one week, and having to RTJ again. Another week of inactivity and removal is permanent.

Last but not least: Please follow the RPoL site Rules.
