Respect all staff at all times. Complaints must be filed calmly and patiently, and outbursts will earn temporary banishment from the site.i . 2 .

If the above two rules are broken three times cumulatively, you will be permanently banned.i . 4 .
Do not advertise except in the advertising forum.i . 5 .

You may not have more than 3 candidates at a time.ii . 2 .
You may only create ONE ranking dragon OR wher. Impressed dragons or whers do not count.ii . 3 .
Any pet that is not a firelizard or a canine should be cleared by staff and have a good explanation. Not many animals live around the Weyr, and few can be tamed. Pets bought from the Weyr Store are exempt.ii . 4 .
Make sure that your characters have both faults and strengths. We do not like seeing "perfect" characters.ii . 5 .
Have some patience when it comes to character review. We will try to be prompt, but we have a lot to do. Try not to nag.ii . 6 .

Adoptable dragons and whers are first come first serve. The person that first posts completed profiles and has them accepted gets the character.iii . 3 .
Only dragons and whers are adoptable, human characters are not put up for adoption.iii . 4 .
Those that have lost their characters may adopt them again if they get there first.iii . 5 .
There is no "calling dibs". If you want an adoptable dragon or wher, you need to get their profile out.IV . P O S T I N G
iv . 1 .
No god-modding. This means that you cannot do anything to another player's character without that player's permission.iv . 2 .
Keep it clean. If you feel your thread is going beyond a PG-13 rating, move it to a mature content forum. Ask staff for the password.iv . 3 .
Remember the difference between IC and OOC. Do not take IC actions personally, and do not take OOC aggression out IC.iv . 4 .
No placeholder posts. In progress posts are fine, but placeholders are too often left unwritten, and they mess up post counts.iv . 5 .
Try to post at least a paragraph whenever you're posting IC. Novels are not necessary, but those you're RPing with can work better with more to go off of.iv . 6 .
All posts made in the RP forums must be IC and obey the canon of Monachikos Weyr. OOC RPing may take place in the chatterbox forum.iv . 7 .
Characters may not be posted in the RP forums until they are accepted. Flight NPCs are fine, and may be posted in Flights even if you are creating them as real characters.V . A C T I V I T Y

Anyone who does not log in for two months is in danger of being deleted. Post in the absence board if you know you can't be here.v . 2 .

It is best to state in your initial Flight posts how you feel about minor powerplaying, as this tends to happen in Flights.VII . H A T C H I N G S
vii . 1 .
The owner of the clutch mother is not responsible for creating the clutch. All clutches are created by staff, unless the ability is bought or won.vii . 2 .
Do not ask for specific dragon ranks for your candidates. Trust us, we aim to please when it comes to hatchlings.vii . 3 .
Have some patience during a clutch. Getting a baby posted isn't very easy, and there is always a reason for a delay, and it almost never is the fault of the staff.vii . 4 .
Candidates must be posted at the hatching in order to Impress. If you do not have time, you may post something brief in the hatching saying so, and it will suffice.vii . 5 .
If a candidate does not arrive, the hatchling will either be killed or it will be given to another character.vii . 6 .
Note that not all dragons or whers that die do so because of missing candidates.vii . 7 .
You will be informed when a hatching has officially ended. Before this, more posting from you means more posting from staff.VIII . W E Y R L I N G S / W H E R L I N G S

Riders and handlers are weyr/wherlings for 6 OOC months, at the end of which they graduate and are placed in a wing. This amounts to 1 1/2 turns IC. This post has been edited by Mellody on Aug 10 2012, 09:05 AM
