Rules
« on: May 01, 2017, 02:17:10 AM »

COMMON COURTESY

  • Always be considerate and inclusive of others.
  • Harassing or bullying behaviour is not acceptable.  If there is ever any issue, please message a staff member (via the private messaging system here on the forum, not through any off-site platforms or channels) so that it can be addressed quickly.
  • Respectful behaviour should extend from the forum itself into the chatbox (no spamming or advertising in there, by the way).  Please avoid mentioning any potential spoilers from the manga, some people are only aware of the developments revealed in the anime so far.  The tagbox is optional and purely for notifying partners of replies and/or promoting open threads. All you need do is paste the link in, the box will automatically format it to show as [link].

CHARACTERS AND ACCOUNTS

  • Avatars measure 100 x 100.
  • You will need an OOC account, registered under your alias.  This should be the first account you register (due to issues with spam, this will be approved by staff) after which you need to post in our OOC sign up thread to have the category changed.  Once your OOC account is in place, you can make your first character's subaccount (check our subaccount guide if you need assistance with this) and post an application (a WIP counts) within one week, otherwise your OOC account will be returned to the New Recruit category and eventually deleted.
  • There is no limit on how many characters you can have (it is up to you to judge how many you can manage).  In the interests of fairness, we naturally ask that members please refrain from choosing more than 1 main or pivotal canon. We currently classify the following as being pivotal: Annie Leonhart, Armin Arlert, Bertolt Hoover, Eren Yeager, Mikasa Ackerman, Reiner Braun. This list is subject to change but amendments will never affect characters already in play.
  • Each character must be registered under their own separate subaccounts (please see the subaccount guide).  Register the subaccount in your character's name, using Title Case and including any necessary accents. First name should precede the surname.
  • If you reserve a canon character you must post their character application (WIPs are acceptable) within two weeks, otherwise the reservation will expire and the character will be made available to others once more.
  • You have two weeks from the day you initially post a work in progress (WIP) character application to complete it, otherwise it will be archived.  Similarly, if you are asked to make edits to an application, you will have one week to do so. This is to keep the applications board tidy and up-to-date.  If you require longer, you need only notify a member of staff (by PM or via the chatbox) or post in your application. To unarchive an application, notify staff and let them know which application(s) you wish to have reactivated/moved.
  • If you initially post your character application as a WIP, please post a reply in the thread to make it clear to staff that it is complete and ready for review.
  • The structure of application templates should not be changed.  Additional headers or lyrics may be added, but no sections or images can be removed.
  • It is possible to reserve playbys/face claims by posting in the face claim thread (you should do this before posting a WIP application as only reservations made in this thread can be honoured).  Face claims can be from anime, manga or other media, as long as they are of a suitably animanga-like style. Each player may reserve up to a maximum of three faces at a time and each reservation will last for two weeks. During this time an application must be posted for the proposed character (even a WIP application will suffice).  Should the application be archived the face reservation will expire but if an extension is applied the face reservation will last as long as the application is in progress (WIP applications will be archived if they have been sitting unfinished for one full activity check).
  • Canon characters are expected to make at least two posts per activity check (two calendar months), while original characters are expected to make at least one post. In the event that you are going to be inactive for a time, please let us know via the absences board.  Your post should include an estimated return date. Where a return date isn't supplied, a hiatus will be considered lapsed after two activity checks (four calendar months). At this time, character claims will expire.
  • Please do not make perfect, all-powerful or Mary Sue characters.  Everyone has flaws or weaknesses, it's what makes us interesting - and the same goes for your characters!  Similarly, please make sure that they fit in with the canon world. Although we are AU in nature, we still wish to preserve the gritty, realistic atmosphere of the Attack on Titan universe.
  • Please contact a staff member if you wish to shelve or drop a character.  Shelving is for characters that you wish to take a break from (whether due to low muse, time constraints, etc.) but sincerely intend to pick up again in future.  Dropping is for a character you have no longer have any desire to play. Canon characters can only be dropped, not shelved, as there may be others wishing to play them.  Shelved characters will still appear in character directories, marked with their shelved status, but not on the face claims list. This is because shelved character playbys are available to be claimed by others.  Also be aware that if you are inactive for a period of many weeks, and fail to respond to the activity-related PM(s) sent, your characters will be counted as dropped and removed from the lists - though they can still be easily retrieved if you decide to return. If someone else takes your character's face claim while they are shelved/dropped, you must find a new one.

REGARDING ROLEPLAYING

  • Reluctant Heroes uses liquid time, which means you can thread any events from the past, either before the fall of Wall Maria or from previous seasons and arcs.  However, threads set in the future, beyond the current season, are not permitted.
  • Please make an effort to use grammar and punctuation properly and avoid chat speak entirely!
  • We have no word count, instead stressing quality over quantity.
  • No god-modding.  That means you cannot play or kill another person's character without their permission.
  • Reluctant Heroes is rated 15 and members are required to use the tagging system to ensure others can safely and happily navigate the threads.
  • Any posts 18+ in nature must be posted in the mature board. The mature board is visible only to members aged 18 and over whose access has been approved by a member of the staff team. In order to view and post in the mature board you must first add your date of birth to your OOC account profile, so that we can verify your age, and then request mature group membership (this needs to be done with each character you wish to have access to the board).  For more details on how to go about this, see our mature board guide.

CURRENT CHARACTER TYPE CAPS

  • OC Titan-shifters; ideas for such a character must be discussed and approved by staff prior to the application process
  • OCs born or living outside of the Walls
