Out of character
- You should have 1 account per character wherein the display name is the character's first and last name. We ask that all members make an effort to fill in the character fields of the mini-profile within a week of finishing a character. Only staff should have an OOC account.
- Do not spam the c-box. Spamming is the repeated posting of useless material.
- The c-box is not the place for arguing. So don't be petty. It's totally acceptable to bring an admin in on any issue you may have with another member - in fact, we encourage it.
- Do not be excessive with the chat speak (see: 2007 myspace).
- Use your common sense. If you don't have it, you aren't mature enough to be here.
- There is no formal word count, but every post should have a decent paragraph.
- Keep it PG-13. There should be no sex or illegal drug use.
- All posts should be in third person.
- Overpowered characters will be denied.
- Flawless characters will be denied.
- Some biracial species are allowed, but rare. Please see the post on inter-species relationships.
- Please look at the forum statistics thread. While helping round out the members is very helpful, it's not required - however, staff reserve the right to put a temporary ban on species/genders that are getting out of hand.
- Xisin recognizes 5 sexualities: heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, asexual, and pansexual. We do not recognize transsexuality - technology at the current time does not allow for this type of surgery.
- Xisin recognizes all genders, including transgenderism and androgyny.
- Characters are free to be made with sexual, gender, or race-related prejudices, but this should NEVER extend into out of character instances.
- All new characters must be 14 years and older, or between 7 and 14 years if accompanied by a guardian. The guardian can be a non-playable character.
- There is no character limit, but if you login to the site please login to all of your character accounts.
- Do not role-play until your character is approved.
- Xisin does not do activity checks. However, accounts that have not posted in 3 weeks will be marked inactive. This includes members who have notified staff of their absence - if you know that you will be absent or unable to post for more than 3 weeks, we will mark the account inactive upon being notified.
- Being marked inactive is not a punishment. It is used to keep the forum updated!
- Canons who have been inactive for 1 month will be notified, if there is no response in three days the position will become open. Pending the canon, admins and the appropriate members will ultimately decide how this is to take place.
- Accounts that have not been logged into for 1 month will have their biography and threads archived. Archived threads may be retrieved! Consult the archived board for more information.
- Threads are considered inactive after 1 month of no additional posts. At this point, the threads will be moved into the archives. Members will be consulted first, and if there are any pending circumstances this requirement will be waved (such as a notified absence, for example).
- If you kill off a character, notify staff immediately.
Hopefully this will never become an issue. In most cases, breaking a rule on accident is not a big deal. However, repeatedly or purposely breaking a rule may warrant a consequence. In order to be fair, consequences will be decided by 2 staff members, and 1 member chosen randomly. Punishments may range from chat box restrictions, character restrictions, or suspensions from the site.
svatur and the all mother
- The spirits of Svatur and the All Mother are very much alive, and throughout your roleplaying adventures you may happen on one of them. They may curse, bless, or simply interact with you. The chances of this happening are rare and randomized.
- Neither Svatur nor the All Mother will ever kill a character, but they can make lasting impacts on them that the role-player should honor. By joining a character here, you are agreeing to participate in these random occurrences - should they impact you at all!
