1. Username

Please make the username your character's first and last name, including a space.

Do not use things like ‘Puff4Ever’ or ‘Starstruck21’. You may choose to put your character’s full name, such as 'Alexander Kline' even though you have him go by 'Alex' in the game, or you may just use ‘Alex Kline’.

Please refrain from direct use of characters from other fandoms - i.e. naming your character Bilbo Baggins, claiming Martin Freeman as the Face Claim, and creating a backstory that is similar to his. If you have any questions, please reach out to an admin.

2. Please respect EVERYONE.

It is important for you to understand that there is absolutely no bullying. It's alright for your characters to be nasty to each other during role-play (if consent has been given), but outside of role-playing, fighting, swearing (with harmful intention), or anything else considered bullying will result in you being banned for up to a month, depending on the severity of the actions.

If you have been caught bullying and have been banned for it three (3) times, it will result in a permanent ban, as we take the comfort and safety of all our members very seriously.

3. Number of characters allowed

In order for you to be able to build up your characters, and to allow you the best possible RP experience, FloB requests a maximum number of 5 characters per handler. If you wish to have more after this, a PM to an admin is required.

This rule applies to any and all characters made after the fifth. The more active your other characters have been, the more likely you are to get approval. The reason for this rule is that there are some people who have a habit of making characters and dumping them after a few days of RPing, and we wish to avoid this.

The word of an admin will be the final say. If denied, you may resubmit a request after one (1) month.

If approved, you do not need to wait a month before requesting for another character. However, you are expected to at least finish making and use your new character (a single post is considered having used them) before requesting another.

This rule does not apply, of course, to NPCs (non-playable characters). (NPCs are basically characters that are mentioned but don't have an actual account. Examples would be parents, children, or even friends. NPCs should be used only as a means to drive plot and not as a character by himself, meaning that all posts should focus more on the main character than on NPCs.)

4. Chatbox

The chatbox (or the CB as we call it) is located at the bottom of the main home page, after logging into your account.

It is considered a public area. While a person needs to be a user to log in, there should never be any expectation of privacy in the chatbox. Anything that is said, therefore, is done of your own volition.

Admins/chatbox moderators have the ability to clear the chat box at any time, but are in no way required to do so. If, for whatever reason, you feel that someone has bullied you or broken a rule in chatbox, please do keep a copy of the conversation and PM an admin/chatbox moderator

The chatbox should also be a friendly place, so when there are many people in there, please try to talk about light topics that include everyone. It is perfectly fine to get into in depth discussions with friends or others if you are the only ones there, but we do ask that you ensure nobody is getting offended and that, once others join, the topic is discontinued.

5. Please respect Admins and Moderators.

We work hard to keep the site up to date and we would appreciate it if you showed us the same respect we show to you. If you do not feel that you were treated appropriately by a member of the Admin/Mod Team, please message another one with your concerns as well as any evidence of this, and it will be addressed by the team as a whole.

6. Avatars
Avatars should not be more than 190x300 pixels (width x height). You are allowed to use a randomiser, such as randimg.net, but please ensure the size is correct before uploading. If you need help using this option or this site, don't hesitate to reach out to any admin or member who uses it. Smile

7. Signatures
Signatures should not be more than 550x260 pixels (width x height). Please keep signatures clean and safe for all. Up to three spoilers are allowed, excluding information lines. You may put signatures with swear words in spoilers, if there is a warning. No sexual signatures are allowed, whether in a spoiler or not.

If you are uncertain what is allowed and what isn't, please contact an admin or moderator. Smile

Due to the format of the site, we request that you include important information about your character in your signature (information lines). Please include the following information for all the fandoms you are in:

Fandom -- Age -- Category in Fandom

You may write it in any order, and include whatever other information you wish. Note that these do NOT count as being part of your official signature, should you have one, and you are still allowed your image + 3 spoilers.

For example:

Harry Potter: Hufflepuff || 16 || || Halfblood || Seer
Superhero: Student (final year) || 18 || Villain


Superhero || Student || 15 || Future Villain
General Sci-Fi || 23 || Captain of VFV05
Harry Potter || Auror-in-training (Year 2) || 19 || Muggleborn || Metamorphmagus

8. Advertising

We understand that some of you are experienced RP-ers, who frequent other sites, or may have one of your own. We welcome sister sites, but ask that any promotion of other pages be done in the OOC section. Also, promotion should stay out of the chatbox. Mentions of another site is perfectly fine, but please don't bully others to join. They don't enjoy it, and it will be grounds for suspension.

We expect that any promotion for another site should also include our site being promoted on that one as well.

Make your characters, plot with others, meet new people, write, and most importantly, have fun! Smile If you have any suggestions, complaints, requests, or anything else you want to tell us, please do not hesitate to contact an admin.
