These are for the whole site. These are the ones that failure to follow them will get you in trouble. Please note we take everything case by case and the punishments are not determined by just one person. Just follow these and we will be golden.
THE GOLDEN RULE
Treat others how you want to be treat. It’s that simple. If that is not clear enough don’t act like a tool (or any other word you can think to put here). Just be nice. This is an everyone of every level site with a lot of members with English as a second or even third language. No real life drama brought to the site, keep it just between the writers. Just be nice and play nice keeping the drama in character only and we are golden.
Please sign up with a first and last name properly capitalized. Examples: John Smith, Susan J. Carey, Mercedes Anne Moore…. Please do not sign up with a canon name or claim a canon connection. If you are interested in playing a canon you can check out the topic found HERE. Once you sign up on the forum you go HERE for sorting. When you are sorted you can make all your other claims HERE. Characters have to be at least eight years old to be on the board. All face claims have to be eighteen or older in real life. Please note most people are sorted within a few hours but in some cases it can take 24 hours. Only after that 24 hours should you contact an admin.
For all new characters and registrations you get 10 characters max for free. Any additional characters are 1500 points per new character slot for anything a second year to adult and only 500 for a new first year character.
ROLEPLAYING AND POSTING
We don’t care the length of your posts or anything like that. A lot of our members are not native English speakers so please understand that they are learning. Remember the Golden Rule. No GOD MODING please don't do this. Its just bad form. We just ask that you remember during the school year students are not allowed off campus expect certain times. There will be announcements about this so please check for those.
Even though we are a premium site, that means adult content allowed, the main site is PG13. That means keep it clean and safe we do have young members in all unlocked forums (common rooms not included). If things get a little racy (in a sexual manner) please take them to a locked area and mark the topics correctly. As in put an [M] in the title. Anyone under 18 caught in these areas you will be asked to leave the board. Please remember any face claim in this racy threads needs to be 18 or older and the character has to be 16 or older. Violence in moderation can be left in the main forum.
Keep your graphics PG13. They must be able to be viewed in public. Sigs should be no larger than 600x400 and icon for mini profiles is 200x300. If you don’t or can’t make your own graphics there are people here willing to do so for you.
The Chatbox is OOC do not take any drama into it. At this moment it is not auto refresh that should be coming back soon. Please keep all convos in there clean. Feel free to share rp links and stuff like that but no outside advertising that can be found at the bottom of the board.
KEEP IT CANON
We don’t care if you use changed up versions of character names from other books. That you get inspiration for characters from other books. All we ask is that you keep it canon. If it is not Harry Potter Canon or YHE Canon you will be asked to change things. There are topics within the Welcome Area, YHE Library and Question & Answer sections have a lot of the same topics covering things like we view as canon.
There is a board at the bottom of the forum for this. Please do not pm members or link in your or profile to other boards. This also includes you posting in the cbox. If you want to advertise please use the forum at the bottom of the board.
These are subject to change without warning. Please check often.
