    Rulez and Regs

    Post  Lulu on Thu Oct 18, 2012 11:17 am

    Membership in SWEI is subject to the following rules and guidelines;

    General Behavior & Board Etiquette
    01. The first and perhaps most important rule of any successful community should be to respect your fellow members and to treat them as equals, peers, not as something lesser than you. This rule should come as relatively common sense, but as the staff here has worked together over the years we have seen this rule repeatedly violated in the most egregious ways. Simply put we expect you to treat one another with respect, decency, and at least a modicum of civility as we will have minimal patience with or tolerance for those who are not community minded.

    02. Any rude, abusive, racist, sexist, demeaning posts or comments will be deleted and you will be immediately subject to suspension or banishment from the community.

    03. Political and religious debates are not permitted here at SWE:I. This is not subject to debate or challenges in any fashion, posting or discussion of these topics in chat make you subject to immediate warning while subsequent infractions will lead to suspension and/or banishment from the community.

    04. Please make sure you are posting in the correct forum. Posts that go off topic will be moved or deleted. Any Out Of Character posts made in the role-playing forums will be deleted. There is a planning forum to discuss direction and content of IC events. Please keep IC forums strictly to IC posts.

    05. Please refrain from spamming, we do not want to be over-run by spammers. If you have an advertisement to post, there is a forum. If you are advertising another RPG, you are allowed to post in the advertisements section without penalty. However, other random Spam not related to Star Wars or role-playing will get you and your site banned.

    06. SWE:I is rated R to better allow more freedom within a role-playing scenario. This means that violence and profanity are allowed in IC posts. If you are under 17, or violence and profanity offends you, this may not be the place for you. *Check below for explanations of the rating system.

    Application & Character Rules
    07. It is imperative that you read all chapters of the back story as well as the IC timeline in order to understand the time period and history of our unique setting. Inconsistencies are bound to happen we understand this, but blatant disregard for the story and rules isn't tolerated in any manner.

    08. We limit the number of Force Sensitive characters you may have to two. Only one of those may be of 'Master' or Darth levels. This is to allow equal opportunity across the board for people to write a Jedi, Sith, or Grey Jedi/Sith/Force User. A member must also submit their IC sample as the character they are applying for when it is a Force User.br>
    09. We have no limit on the number of characters that can be played, however we must stress that you understand your own limits and abide by the above guidelines when considering another character. All of your existing characters must be active for a period of 30 days between each when applying for another.

    10. We request that your log-in name be the same as your character name. It is acceptable if it is just a portion of your characters name, like Lexa if the name is Lexa Voru. Please do not include titles like Darth or Captain in your log in name.

    Game Play Rules
    11. In-Character posts should be of minimum 4 paragraph length, each paragraph containing no fewer than 3 to 4 sentences. Posts that are only a few words or sentences will be asked to be edited or deleted outright. As an advanced RP a high level of effort is expected from everyone.

    12. As this is a play by post role-playing game, participation is expected. Consequently we expect when your turn arises that you will post within a maximum of 72 hours in order to ensure a reasonable pace of play. If for some reason you can not meet this requirement, please notify your writing partners or the board as a whole. Failure to comply could result in your turn being skipped and your character appropriately controlled by other members of the scenario. Repeat violations in the same scenario could also result in your character being written out of the thread.

    Graphics Guidelines
    13. Signatures should be no larger than 450 pixels wide by 200 pixels tall. There should be no links to offsite boards in your signatures.

    14. Avatars must meet the board guidelines of 150 pixels wide by 150 pixels tall.

    15. Both avatars and signatures should be of the character, nothing else.

    A final note:
    The Admins are working hard to keep an open, friendly, and fun environment in SWE:I. We want to be available to you and not just be seen as “The Unfriendly Administration.” If you have any concerns or problems, contact us through e-mail, IM, or the private message system on the forum. If you just want to talk or say hello, that’s fine too! Thank you for reading the rules, and we hope that you have fun role-playing in the SWE:I community.

    --------------------------------
    * Concerning the rating system:

    R rating is defined as:

    R --"Restricted. Under 17 Requires Accompanying Parent or Adult Guardian": The Rating Board applies this rating to movies the members believe contain a high level of adult content, such as harsh profanity, intense violence, explicit sexual content and extensive drug use. In some states, the minimum age to see an R rated movie unaccompanied is 18.

    Source --> How stuff works "What do movie ratings mean?

    MPAA.org explains it as:
    An R-rated film may include hard language, or tough violence, or nudity within sensual scenes, or drug abuse or other elements, or a combination of some of the above, so that parents are counseled, in advance, to take this advisory rating very seriously. Parents must find out more about an R-rated movie before they allow their teenagers to view it. *Remember: If you break the rules, we can ban you from the board so please keep that in mind. There is a warning system setup on the board and if you get warned and hit 100%, you will be banned.

    02. Any rude, abusive, racist, sexist, demeaning posts or comments will be deleted and you will be immediately subject to suspension or banishment from the community at the discretion of the community leaders.

    03. Political and religious debates are not permitted here at Extinction. This is not subject to debate or challenges in any fashion, posting or discussion of these topics in chat make you subject to immediate warning while subsequent infractions will lead to suspension and/or banishment from the community. Your views be they political, religious or both are yours and you are entitled to them, you are not entitled to push or debate those views on your fellow members.

    04. To minimize unnecessary work for the community leaders, please make sure you are posting in the correct forum at all times. Posts that go off topic will be moved or deleted. Any Out Of Character posts made in the role-playing forums will be deleted. There is a planning forum to discuss direction and content of IC events. Please keep IC forums strictly to IC posts. This includes 'quick notes' to set the scene or describe appearance or character attire. ALL OOC comments should be kept in the OOC planning forums.

    05. Please refrain from spamming, we do not want to be over-run by spammers. If you have an advertisement to post, there is a forum. If you are advertising another RPG, you are allowed to post in the advertisements section without penalty.

    08. We limit the number of Force Sensitive characters you may have to one. A member must also submit their IC sample as the character they are applying for when it is a Force User. You must also be active with a non-force sensitive character prior to applying for a force user.

    09. We have no limit on the number of characters that can be played, however we must stress that you understand your own limits and abide by the above guidelines when considering another character. All of your existing characters must be active for a period of 30 days before applying for another.

    10. We request that your log-in name be the same as your character name. It is acceptable if it is just a portion of your characters name, like Shara if the name is Shara Venn. Please do not include titles like Darth or Captain in your log in name.

    Game Play Rules
    11. In-Character posts should be of minimum 3 paragraphs in length, each paragraph containing no fewer than 3 to 4 sentences. Posts that are only a few words or sentences will be asked to be edited or deleted outright. As an advanced RP a high level of effort is expected from everyone. There is not a specific word count, we just ask that you be respectful of your fellow RPers efforts and not respond with limited words. The debate of quantity versus quality is not at all relevant here, we expect a qualitiy post IS a quantity post.

    12. As this is a play by post role-playing game, participation is expected. Consequently we expect when your turn arises that you will post within a maximum of 72 hours in order to ensure a reasonable pace of play. If for some reason you can not meet this requirement, please notify your writing partners or the board as a whole. Failure to comply could result in your turn being skipped and your character appropriately controlled by other members of the scenario. Repeat violations in the same scenario could also result in your character being written out of the thread.

    Graphics Guidelines
    13. Signatures should be no larger than 550 pixels wide by 250 pixels tall. There should be no links to offsite boards in your signatures.

    14. Avatars must meet the board guidelines of 200 pixels wide by 250 pixels tall. If you need artwork, please post in the art forum.

    15. Both avatars and signatures should be of the character, nothing else.

    A final note:

If you just want to talk or say hello, that’s fine too! Thank you for reading the rules, and we hope that you have fun role-playing in the Star Wars Extinction community.

    Concerning banner graphics:

    I think we should add a guild line regarding creation of banners. I assume eventually we will form an art team but for now I would like to officially claim responsibility for banner art. We should give a guideline that states requests can be made so long as the member has been active for say a month and the character has made a minimum of say 20 ice posts or so? Also with a clause that initially before we form a team itll only likely be you and me making them and we both have lives. Same restrictions for people to make their own but it has to be accepted by myself or yourself to be added?

    Rules look good. I'll see what we can do to pretty it up. Maybe add some graphics, some sort of webpage/template, as well as section and back to top hyperlinking etc
