.:: // RULES \\ ::.
Before you join WWE: 2000 it's STRONGLY advised that you read this rules section carefully, because some of our rules may be different to previous efeds you've been in. We all want your stay in the WWE: 2000 to be a happy and successful one so abiding by the following rules will help keep everyone happy. If you have any problems with the rules then please contact the Owner in a respectable fashion, to discuss the situation.
WWE: 2000 is a REAL WRESTLER only efed. Only wrestlers from WWE, ECW, WCW and TNA promotions are allowed.
Once you've registered an account on the WWE: 2000 Boards, within 24 hours you must have posted your application details or else your account will be deleted.
Only 1 wrestler per person. People who want to join as an established tag team will of course get both wrestlers. Female Wrestlers are allowed, and if enough Female Wrestlers join then a Women's Title Division will be added to the roster.
Only 1 member per e-mail address is accepted. If you don't have your own e-mail address then you will not be allowed to join up.
WWE: 2000 Administrative staff reserve the right not to contact a member, to inform them of contract termination.
Roleplaying / Use of Boards
All roleplays MUST be posted directly onto the boards (not linked to webpages). That way everyone's roleplays will be layed out similarly and there won't be any dramatic contrasts. Also is takes away problems of roleplays being posted and then servers crashing etc. because all roleplays will be posted on this Forum directly.
If roleplaying for a time period is impossible contact Vince McMahon through the Personal Messaging system on the Boards (OOC Notifications don't always get read).
If you are going to be away for a while, then make sure you sign the Leave of Absence Board, so we can put on the LOA list.
Lack of roleplaying will be dealt with by jobbing, and eventually contract termination. You have 2 strikes in WWE: 2000, once you no show 2 times, you will be fired.
You cannot include any other wrestlers and their valets/managers in your roleplays without permission from that wrestler first.
No editing posts within unreasonable time of posting. Do not post half-written roleplays; don't then say "I'll edit it later" or anything along those lines.
Spelling and grammar should be checked before you post. It doesn't look good when reading a rp and all you see are mistakes. Please check for any coding errors before posting as well as Editing Roleplays is not allowed. The OOC Board can be used for this.
Quality over Quantity. Long roleplays DO NOT merit quality. Anyone can write an essay-style roleplay and just babble on about anything. 3000 words of type will not win matches: your message, grammar, meaning, point, and description will do that. WWE: 2000 is strongly against Quantity over Quality and does not appreciate hugely long rps.
Last minute posting, to "gain the advantage" is also not appreciated by WWE: 2000 and, may well affect the outcome of your match even if your roleplay is better.
No references to other superstars are members being gay, lesbian, cross dressers or anything like that i.e. racism, sexism etc. What starts off as a small insult can lead to a big OOC war.
Remember to roleplay on time for cards. The Deadlines for weekly shows and PPV's are displayed at the top of the card in, GMT - UK Time (EST = 5 Hours behind, Central = 6 Hours behind, WST = 7 Hours behind - APPROXIMATELY) for the exact times or any other time zone alternatives you will have to check the internet.
No OOC messages are to be posted on the Roleplay Board, NONE AT ALL. This is what the OOC Board is used for. Any testing fonts, colours, etc. is also to be done on there. Any excuses as to why a roleplay is late should be posted on the OOC Board.
If OOC posts are seen on the Roleplay Board they will be deleted without notification.
There is to be NO advertising of other e-feds AT ALL on the WWE: 2000's message boards. We don't post advertisements for the WWE: 2000 on other e-feds and expect others to do the same.
No OOC feuds are to be allowed. Slagging off other members on the boards will result in contract termination.
DO NOT get involved in matters that don't concern you or your wrestler! If something has happened between two members, then leave them and the staff to sort it out. Interfering in matters only makes things worse. Keep your opinions to yourself or else you may find yourself punished.
No complaining on the message boards. Negative criticism and moaning leads to confrontation and this is what we try to avoid in the WWE: 2000. If you have a problem with anything, voice it privately via e-mail to the person concerned. Keep it off the WWE: 2000 boards.
WWE: 2000 Administration staff reserve the right to censor any messages on the OOC Board by removing them or editing them.
Your password and username are NOT to be given to anyone else at all, regardless whether or not they are members. Usernames are unique so we can trace who posts what, where and when. The only person you may contact about passwords is the Owner.
DO NOT post messages using anyone else's username.
Roster / Matches
The management reserves the right to move wrestlers up and down the roster as they feel necessary. This should NOT be questioned by the person(s) involved. Failure to rp to the required standard of one division will mean that you move down a place into the division below.
Contendership for titles is decided by the staff. DO NOT request title shots. If the staff feel you deserve one, then you will get one. You get title shots by earning them through roleplaying, not sucking up.
Matches are booked by the relevant staff for each Card and Pay Per View. See the Staff page for details of who books what. Do not contact the wrong member of staff if you want to request a match or something for a show.
The best roleplayer will USUALLY win the match (there's a 90% chance that this will happen), but NOT ALWAYS. However if the Administration staff feel the need for a change or a sudden loss, then unexpected things can happen. This is purely to build on existing angles, feuds or storylines or to create new ones. WWE: 2000 is not strictly about wins, losses and draws, it's about having fun and building up memorable feuds/storylines.
Interference is randomly determined. If you request to interfere in a match then sometimes your interference will cost your enemy the loss. Sometimes it will mean that they win via a DQ. It all depends on the current situation (for example how long the feud has been going on for, whether people have roleplayed, etc).
The members should NOT question the outcome of any match regardless of the result.
New members are not given long-lasting feuds and angles with other people until they've been in the fed for a while. This is because we need to see if you are going to stick around. Many new members join the feds and then disappear shortly after, meaning that if we had someone feuding with them, then that feud would be over and it would be a waste of our time for going along with it.
New members cannot form or join stables until they have been in the WWE: 2000 for a while. Again, this is because many new members quit and so it is a waste of time for the staff to go along with a stable.
Failure to obey these rules can result in:
Suspension - Not having a match for 1-2 weeks.
Termination - Being Fired.
WWE: 2000 Administrative staff reserve the right to enforce any "unwritten" rules.
