& POSTING ETIQUETTE
1. The subplots are not intended to be as extensive as our site-wide events and should therefore not stretch on for months on end. Please make sure you are able to post on a timely manner if you sign up for a subplot, or alert the other participants in the subplot if you are suddenly unable to post or if you feel that it's okay if they skip your turn and go on ahead with their own posts. As it is an event thread, participants are encouraged to do shorter posts than normal, so the flow of the role-play is not disrupted. This is particularly important when there are many characters involved. 2. The order in which participants post in the subplot should always be observed and respected. Don't jump ahead if it's not your turn. If there are three participating chars, the order that you post in should be Char A, Char B, Char C, Char A, Char B, Char C, etc. You CAN skip a turn if you're pressed for time or feel like you don't have anything new to add. If you want the others to go ahead and post when it's your turn, you can leave an OOC remark in the thread itself, saying something like skip, pass, or something similar. Otherwise all OOC chatter should be confined to the sign-ups thread for the subplot! 3. Subplots with no replies for more than three days will be bumped. If a character has not posted after 4 days, the next person in line can PM the Architect for permission to go ahead and post. Unless the moderator is expressively aware that the member intends to post within the next few days, they will usually give the permission to jump ahead straight away - so, remember this and don't get upset if you come back after four days and see that the role-play has continued without you. You'll just have to wait until the next turn to post! 4. It's a good idea to pay close attention to the details in the thread-starter's, and any additional posts made by the Architect, as they will often contain important clues or otherwise useable information pertaining to the situation at hand. 5. HAVE FUN! The most important thing about subplots is getting your character involved with others that they would not normally have an opportunity to play with, make new friendships, forge new alliances, and just experience awesome, exciting new plots! So get out there and sign yourself up for some of our subplots. And don't feel down if a subplot you wanted to join is already full - there will be plenty of opportunities to join other, new plots! Usually a new sign-ups thread will be posted during, or soon after the currently active subplot is concluded.
