First off I want to welcome you to Cajun Nights!
The rules and regulations are going to be very simple. As we the Admins here like to make things simple and easy. Straight to the point so you can get out there and play.
1) Respect Everyone
This should be a pretty simple rule yes? Treat others how you want to be treated. Be respectful of you Moderators and Administrators. And be nice to the guests. Remember we want them to join our lovely site.
2) Grammar and Spelling
This one is a no brainer. Use proper grammar and spelling. Good news is, if you don't know how to spell it. There is a little red squiggle line that tells you its wrong. And please remember the common mistakes (i.e. where, wear,its it's, there, their..) If you have any questions our lovely staff will be glad to help you out.
3) God Modding
This is a big pet peeve of most RP'ers out there. It is not allowed at all. No No and No... You can not super ninja kick Damon to death because you're uber awesome. It does not go that well. You need to give your other RP'ers a chance to respond. If you are found God Modding a warning will be issued.
4) Posting Requirements
Thought it wouldn't be that hard didn't you? Well we are literate we try to be anyways. There will be a minimum post length of 300 words. Yes I know it's so hard. But it gives the people you are writing with something to reply to. Fillers are great. "She stood there looking at him waiting for a response. While she was standing there the smells of the bakery filled the air. Mmm blueberry muffins are wonderful she thought." See that.. fillers
5) Character Accounts
This is an important one. One character per account. Once you first join up, you need to sign in under your character's first and last name. No Cracky McCrackenstein. The only exception for this rule is our Mods and Vampires. Because let's face it, the fangers are old and forget their names. Spaces are acceptable characters in your account name.
6) Character Creation
So you want to make more than one character? Have at it! The only thing we ask is that you wait two weeks after your other character has been approved. You must also be active on all of your characters before you can create another. (1 post per week and leader 3 per week.)
Nope not happening. These are to be your own wonderful characters. We want you to be creative make up your own original characters.
8) Leader Positions
Each species has its own leaders. In order to apply for a leader position you must send the application found here
to the Admin account and we will review it. You must be active for 30 days to assume the position, but you may apply before you hit your 30 days.
This is a big one. We all know that sometimes RL gets in the way. We require one post per week. If you are a clan leader, you've gotta do three. We want you to be active. But if for some reason your muse takes a vacation and it does trust me. Just put up a little away message and it'll be all good. This is important.
10) Role Playing
On this site we do 3rd person as do most sites out there. No "I was staring at the stop sign." We want, "While she danced under the pale moon light." Make it for better reading. Also posting order fits here. Poster 1, Poster 2, Poster 3, Poster 4. If poster 2 drops out it will go Poster 1, Poster 3, Poster 4.. pretty simple right?
11) Mature Content
It is allowed. But we are going to have rules. Your thread title needs to be marked *Mature* after the title. Please PM the admin account or a staff account. There will be no characters under aged engaging in this. Also keep common sense in some of this stuff. And please your character doesn't need to have forty-two threads with the same person doing the same stuff. It's kinda boring after a while.
In order to keep our board looking nice and pretty, ad have size limits on photos. Avatars should be no bigger than 150px X 300px. You will want to manually enter the size of your avatar when you attach it so it doesn't stretch and look bad. Signatures should be 550px X 550px. Pictures in posts may be 600px X 600px. If you are caught stretching the board, you will be warned via PM. If you do not re size, your image will be removed.
13) HAVE FUN
This is important. We want you to have fun so keep the drama to a minimum. On the Cbox you can have fun, just remember other people are watching. We made this site so we could have fun. (codeword: Football!)Drama isn't appreciated. If you have a problem with another member talk to the Admin or Mod about it.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Punishment! Oh no you thought I forgot... but I didn't First Offense
You will receive a written message. Some times we will be willing to give you more than one. Second Offense

Sayanora! This is a three strike your out rule If you've received all above and still continue to do it.. you will be banned. All accounts.
