Aether's Academy is a very open, relaxed place to roleplay, but we do have some standards to uphold to ensure that things move along smoothly.Roleplaying:Posting
-- Aether's Academy has a post minimum of two paragraphs per post. For introductory posts, we suggest at least three paragraphs.
-- When replying to a thread, try to match the length of the other posters' posts. Replying with a post half or double the length may be off-putting or intimidating and decrease the other person's likelihood of replying to your post.
-- Try to post regularly. (At least two or three times a week.) It's common courtesy to your fellow roleplayers, and will prevent you from falling behind.
-- Write your posts in complete sentences, with proper capitalization and punctuation.
-- The roleplays should be in past tense, third person to avoid confusion.
-- You may use doHTML in your posts, but please try to focus more on the words than the stylistics.
-- The chatbox is for out of character usage only. Do not post roleplays in it.
Also: You may notice that there are not necessarily boards for every place spoken of. This is to avoid having thousands of empty boards. If there are a reasonable amount of threads in one area (say five or six) a board will be created for that place only.Attendance/Activity:In Character
-- Try to post at least two to three times a week in-character.
-- (Specifically roleplayed) Truancy in students will result in suspension.Out of Character
-- If you know that you are going to be absent for more than a week or so, please let us know.
-- Inactivity for periods longer than a month will result in "suspension" of your character(s). That is, they will be moved to a group called inactive
and will not be allowed to post in regular roleplays until revived. (You may come back and reinstatethem at a later time, though.)Site Rating:
At Aether's, we'd like to try to keep it about PG-13. Since the movie rating lines have become a little muddled since first introduced to the world, we also use the universal RPG rating system. Our score is as follows:
