BOARD RULESGENERAL RULES
Welcome to Folder's Point, a community built for roleplaying in a friendly environment. In order for everything to go smoothly, we have to set down a few rule and guidelines first. These rules are to be followed. There's no secret code to look for or anything; we trust you. You'll only be hurting yourself if you don't read these.
1. Remember the Golden Rule: do unto others as they would do unto you. IC RULES
2. Be Mature. This means that you keep the spamming to a minimum. You remember that you're here to roleplay, and so is everyone else. Keep the in character drama in character.
3. Remember the rating. This is a 222 in RPGR. Please keep any content that would break such guidelines off the site. While we may be dealing with hefty issues, we can do it in a manner that stays within those rules. Remember that some of the best stories don't cross this line, and neither will ours. While we do allow certain amount of violence and sexual situations, we ask you to fade to black if the situation gets too risky.
*also remember that The Dark Knight was PG-13; there's a lot of room to breathe there.
1. Quality over quantity. there is no posting limit. We'd like you to go for at least a few well constructed paragraphs, but we understand that isn't always possible. Focus on writing quality posts; don't worry about how many words it takes you to say it. We're trying to be an advanced to literate site, so please keep that in mind.Graphics Rules
2.No canon characters/worlds. While we know it's tempting to make Harry Potter or Edward Cullen, the point of Folder's Point is to have original worlds and characters. You're still welcome to bring characters from old sites on, if you add their world description and credit. But please refrain from using any canon characters or original characters from fandom sites. If you need help transferring a character like that, feel free to ask the staff.
3. Third Person. All roleplaying needs to be done in the third person.
4. Obey the basic rules of roleplaying. In other words, no god-modding, power playing, meta gaming, or anything along those lines. This goes back to respecting other people's characters. You cannot control other people directly. You cannot have a character who is godly; the Folding has limited even the strongest of people. You cannot have your character knowing things that they wouldn't know (i.e. the high school student who's a normal human wouldn't know advanced magical theory).
5. Tag your threads; respect the tags. Open threads are allowed, and are welcome to anyone who wants to join. But if someone has tagged another character into the thread, and you are not that character, please ask before joining. You wouldn't want someone else intruding on your private moment, so we ask that you please do the same.
6. No post templates or anything alike. We realize that some people and some RPs encourage various extra bits, such as cell phone pages, photo albums, or posting templates. Here at Folder's Point, we discourage such things, as we would rather have you focus on working toward the game. If you'd like to contribute something creative for the benefit of the board, feel free to offer.
7. Be reasonable with your character numbers. You're welcome to have as many characters as you can handle. That means that if you really want, you could join with two, three, or even four characters. however, you have to be active with your characters, and be reasonable about the number. We don't want people to create and ditch characters. work on developing your characters, and focus on quality, not quantity here as well.
8. Post in the absences thread if you're not posting for a long time. Here at Folder's Point we understand that it's ridiculous to ask you to post on a daily basis. While some people can manage that rhythm, others can't. We don't have a rule as to how much you have to post in a particular amount of time. However, we do ask you to post in the absences thread if you know you won't post for over two weeks. Any member whose characters haven't posted at least once in that period and haven't posted in the absences thread, will have their characters 'drift away'.
1. Yes, size does matter. we ask that you keep all avatars to 100x150 pixels and keep all signatures to roughly 500x225 pixels. This stops the board from stretching, and nobody wants that.C-BOX RULES
2. You have to have something. We encourage you to select some kind of realistic representation for your character, and we really insist that you have some kind of graphical representation made up as soon as you possibly can. This means that you can use realistic CGI (Gollum; Dobby, etc.) and Muppets (Kermit, anything from Jim Henson, really) as well as animals and robots that already exist. Of course, if you're playing a set of twins or someone who has a clone or a robotic duplicate, it's to be expected that the representatives would cross over, and this is quite fine for us. As for the actual graphics, there's plenty of people available for requests.
1.Please be friendly. Guests and other members use the cbox; it's often one of the first things people see. Please be friendly and welcoming on it .You never know when your next best friend will show.Rule outline is created/formatted by December, Esq of RPG-D. The rules themselves are created by [Fate]. December, Esq is not responsible for attitude of rules/admin. Rules are open to adds and changes anytime to fit the site's needs.
2. Keep in character things, in character. this means that there will be no In character chatting in the cbox. It's perfectly alright to be excited and have your character out there. We just ask that you take any such conversations to an instant messaging service or to the board itself. The admins prefer MSN, themselves.
