{RULES}

K E E P . I N . M I N D ! !

►You should read this before applying for a character.
►This is meant to be taken to heart and keyboard.
►Any questions should be asked in the [FAQ].



.001 ► This is a Pan-Fandom RP and should be treated as so. Characters from Movies, Video Games, Cartoons, Animes, Mangas, and ETC. are fine, Real Life celebrities are not.

.002 ► OOC =/= IC. Even if you find yourself in an awkward situation in which you are not certain how your character would react, try to keep it as close to their original personality. In other words, if your character is an innocent, happy go-lucky teen, then they certainly won't try to seduce X-Character into submission. Chances are that they'd rather ask nicely, eh?

.003 ► Stay active. At the end of every two months, we will have an Activity Check. If you fail to respond to the Activity Check, you will be removed from the RP.

.004 ► No OOC drama. If you have a grudge with one of the players, make sure that grudge stays out of the game. Just suck it up and make it work. You're not going to have both your characters start a war with each other just because you and that player do not get along well. Just don't interact with them if you can't handle your problems maturely. If the moderators think you and another player are having OOC drama and taking it into the RP, we will contact you and take proper action.

.005 ► No breaking the fourth wall. No, just no. We get it, it can be hilarious sometimes, but go somewhere else to do that.

.006 ► Take into account your own free time. Once again, stay active. Real life can get hectic sometimes and if you can barely keep up with one character, what makes you think that you can keep up with three? It is for this reason that moderators can deny you a second and third character based on your activity.

.007 ► God-Moding = NO. Each time someone God-Modes, the Host stabs a puppy; so for the sake of the puppies, do not God-Mode. Any player caught God-Moding will be contacted by a moderator and proper action will be taken.

.008 ► The current character limit is seven. Currently, you may reserve and claim up to seven (7) characters. After you claim your seventh you will not be able to claim an eighth. This may change later on.
[Rule updated on Sunday, September 07, 2008.]

.009 ► NC-17 logs must be Friend-Locked. As we wish to respect LJ's rules we ask of our members to please make all their NC-17 logs Friend-Locked. This includes logs with excessive gore and other disturbing scenes (yes, we do mean it).

.010 ► No discrimination, please and thank you. We allow het, yaoi, and yuri here. If it's canon for your character to make a discriminating comment ICly, then that's alright. However, anyone caught making such comments will be contacted by a mod.

.011 ► No OCs. This is a Pan-Fandom RP, we do not need any original characters here at the moment.

.012 ► Respect your mods and fellow roleplayers. We do not expect you to get along with everyone here, nor to follow everything we say like mindless zombies; but, please, stay calm and collected. This is an RP, we are here to have fun, not start a huge flame war.

.013 ► Do not use action tags. Remember, your characters are communicating through laptops. No microphones, no webcams; just plain old text and a forum filled with poor, unfortunate souls.

.014 ► OOC shenanigans are fun, but should not get more attention than IC posts. Yes, we understand that posting in the CAPSLOCK comm where you can be as cracky as you want and get away with it is fun. But, when such posts get over 100 comments (and that's a generous amount compared to what we've seen) and good, well written IC posts get a mere 10-30 comments... Well, we have a problem.
[Rule added on Tuesday, December 23, 2008.]

.015 ► Only three characters from a single fandom per players. Yes, we know that, sometimes, playing multiple characters from the same fandom and doing selfcest (read: when a player plays with themselves) can be fun, but it is not allowed. The characters that you choose to play from the same fandom cannot be ones that would interact with each other constantly (or at all, if it can be helped).
[Rule added on Thursday, January 29, 2009.]

.016 ► Interact with characters outside your fandom! It can sometimes be scary, not knowing how your characters will react, we know. But, please try to interact with people outside of your fandoms. This helps prevent cliques, and encourages activity. Knowing that only your cast mates will reply to your entries kills muses, and we wouldn't want that to happen, right?
[Rule added on Thursday, January 29, 2009.]

.017 ► In the case that any rules are broken, any offenses shall be dealt with with a 'three strikes' policy. For your first offense, you will be contacted by a mod and given a formal warning. No harm done, especially if you take care to address any issues satisfactorily. Second offense, you get another warning, and will be temporarily banned from the comm for a week. For your third, and final, offense, you will be banned from the community.
[Rule added on Friday, February 13, 2009.]

.018 ► The only language to be used in posts and comments is English. Yes, the majority of the characters all speak a different language, but for the sake of interaction, please refrain from posting or commenting in any language other than English.
[Rule added on Friday, February 13, 2009.]

.019 ► No sparkly text or images in posts. At this point in time, the laptops your characters have only have access to the journal system.
[Rule added on Wednesday, February 25, 2009.]

.020 ► No playercest. Playercest is when one player plays multiple characters that interact with each other.

• Most of these rules, as you can see, are the pretty much the same you see in any other RP. Still, we're glad you took the time to read them. To let us know that you have read these rules and agree to follow all of them, please include The Host is... (with filling in your own word(s) in the place of '...') in your subject line when applying.
