Rules & Regulations
Rules & Regulations:
[Well, I'm not very picky when it comes to Role playing, but I do have certain guildelines that I would like you all to follow... Though, just so we're on the same page... I know most of you won't read this
and won't follow these rules. Anyway.. I don't care if you don't comment this.
I'll automatically know if you've read it. Thank you.]
o1. Please, no one liner's unless I've known you for a while. Try to at least give me 6 sentences minimum. You don't have to write me a novel, but I appreciate something I can work with. Quality over quantity. And your bio belongs on your page, not as filler for your starter. I'll always write in third person, with occasional sub-conscious conflict dialogue. I prefer para and multi-para... don't really have time for novella, though, if you're very adamant, and patient, we can work something out.
o2. Be literate. Proper grammar and spelling as well as punctuation are very much appreciated, although I will not scold you for not using them. But please, dO nOt TaLk LiKe tHiSs. It really irritates me, and I will probably erase your comment because it would look bad havng that on my page. You're = you are. Your = possessive pronoun most commonly signifying ownership. Their = also a possessive pronoun, stemming from 'they'. They're = they are. There = adverb pertaining to a place. Oh, look. Now you have no excuses for confusing them all. Oh, and side note: don't you dare put an apostrophe anywhere near a plural noun. You promise? Pinky swear?
o3. Please no OOC comments, message me. You can leave a small OOC at the end of your comment if you have to go or something. Just make sure to put it in brackets or parenthesis. Thanks.
o4. Please, be a little original. Do not just extend your hand out to me and say "Hello, what's your name." That is a bit annoying, plus, it breaks rule number 1. But you are allowed to send me starters that bump into me. I'm okay with that.
o5. I roleplay Mature themes. This includes drugs, addiction, drinking, gore, etc.. If you don't like it, do not explode on me over it. Please do not rummage through my comments. If you have a really big problem with it, then kindly remove yourself from my list.. I can't be bothered to find and delete you.
o6. NO DRAMA, I have a strict, zero tolerance policy when it comes to drama beyond the realm of our characters. If you've got beef with someone, work it out privately or go your separate ways, but don't broadcast it publicly. I don't need to see you posting a status in which you bitch and whine over someone you just deleted, because it makes you look worse.
o7. You add = you start. Hell no. What's that? I couldn't hear over your bloated condescension. I don't care who goes first, honestly. My friends list is not a ticking time bomb. I don't care whether or not you talk to me. You won't see me announcing any deleting sprees or yelling about not being a so-called 'number'; actions speak louder than words, and I'll stick to that concept.
o8. Don't delete my comments. Again. Do. Not. Delete. My. Comments. Don't delete my comments. Why? I'll tell you why! If I take an hour to painstakingly craft your response and/or starter, the least you can do in return is to leave it alone on your page. It's not a virus; you have no reason to treat it as such. If you're afraid of prying eyes, roleplay in messages or not at all. (I'm honestly baffled by this sudden age of 'stalker weariness' in RP Land.) I'm a writer, and my work is my calling card. If someone on your list sees my responses and enjoys them, they're more than welcome to add me and write with me. That's my objective. I'm not here to waste time, but to establish lasting storylines sparked by the chemistry between myself and other writers.
o9. Patience is strength. This isn't my only profile. On some days, my creativity will be fickle and I'll bounce around to different characters, chasing my ever-elusive muse. On other days, I'll accomplish jack sh*t. But that's part of the process. You might get a response within ten minutes, an hour, a day, a week, or even a month - all depending upon my availability, inspiration, and the content of your response. So I'm warning you now. My work schedule will become malleable within the next several months, so my availability will fluctuate accordingly.
