Activity: By now, you've heard it a million times, but this group cannot thrive without active members. Sedona will not run with any point system to limit the daunting pressure of accumulating several points. Instead, we will ask our members to participate in bi-weekly tasks. We hope these will be ways to look into your characters creatively and help them grow and thrive.
Drama: This should go without saying, but keep any drama strictly in character. We understand that not everyone will get along, and it is optional to write with every member, but you will respect each other.
Inclusivity: This sadly needs to be addressed. In Sedona, we are welcoming and engaging with everyone. Whether it's through active storylines, or simple conversation in the server, make sure that you are interacting with everyone. No one likes the feeling of being left out. It's as easy as saying hello or good morning in the server. Liking or commenting on someone's post on the stream.
Social: Discord will be required for entry into the group. This is a quick way for staff to relay messages and announcements and a playground for members to chat, banter, and socialize. You are welcome to have other socials on the side, such as Line, Pinterest, or Instagram, but Discord is required.
Writing: Sedona members will be required to have four active storylines. We ask that you keep track of these storylines with an owes list visible on your profile or linked in a blog. Please keep these updated; they will be checked with the due tasks. We believe in quality over quantity. Sometimes, a single paragraph is sufficient for storyline progression, but please don't make this a habit. Give your fellow members something to go off of, and keep writing pieces to three paragraphs at a minimum.
Characters: Currently, we will not allow members to have multiple accounts within the group. We ask that all members be 18+ and are mature enough to handle any triggering themes that may arise. We welcome all faceclaims, but please make sure if you're using Instagram models, they are a sufficient amount of content for you to use. Finally, any changes to your character must be communicated with staff before changes are made.
Marriage & Children: If you are joining with someone else, please answer appropriately in the audition form. If you are joining with children or are pregnant, please inform us in the audition form if you use specific FCs for them and their names. That being said, make sure you look at the information to see if anything has already been taken. Once in the group, if your character wants to partake in a life-changing event, engagement, marriage, pregnancy, or adoption, please inform staff before changes are made.
Layouts: Members will be required to have a page on site. We will not need a heavily edited layout, but a complete character bio and an owes list will be required. Please use these pages to house any tasks presented in a blog or bulletin. We will also heavily encourage using status stream for in-character posts.
