The Rules of the Role Play Section [READ ME Before Posting]

Postby /b/ » Thu 25th Jun 2009

Greetings Ladies and Gentleman, I present to you the newest addon in the Artemis Fowl Forums, and that is the Role Play Subsection. At first, let us address the rules of this subsection:

Rule 1: All the general rules (about spam, double posting, image size and others) of Artemis Fowl Fan Gathering apply to this subforum as well.
Rule 2: Only Role Plays allowed are those in the Role Plays section. Discussions about Role Plays are to be kept in the "Role Play Discussions" thread and the Role Plays are to be kept on topic.
Rule 3: Only one Role Play per person can be created. One person can not open several Role Plays, until old ones are closed. Additionally, no person can open more then one Role Play per week.
Rule 4: To close a Role Play, post a message in "RolePlay Discussions" asking for a Role Play to be closed because it is finished, and wait for the moderators to make his thread into a [Closing] thread. A closing thread is one where a role play has been turned into a pool with votes about the closing of the role play. If most of the players agree, the role play is closed after 24 hours, and the new one can be opened by the person who opened the last one, unless the last one was opened less then a week ago.
Rule 5: Each Role Play has it's rules set in the first post. Those rules must be obeyed like these rules are. Those rules are called House Rules of a certain Role Play, and disobeying them ruins the fun and is considered offtopic, and thus rule breaking.


Currently, some people have several Role Plays. It is alright, and they can keep all of them, but they can't open new ones until they close all the Role Plays that they created. At this point in time the transition is complete, so please one RP per person.

If there are any questions about the rules, post them here and they will be answered. Please do not spam this thread, only post questions or suggestions, so we can deal with things in this new subforum more easily.

If any Role Plays have been missed in moving to the new subsection, please post a link to it here, and we will move it as fast as we can.

Regards,

In fact young lady, not only does this "not suck" but it makes much much sense. This way quality will go over quantity and not just any RP idea will be posted, but only the best one, since only one can be active at a time. RP's will also last longer and it will contribute to the RP forum only beneficially.

Have a great day!

What if you have an ongoing RP? Does that count enough to make you unable to have a new one?

I will answer your question with a quote of the first post.

So you need to close all the Role Plays you have opened (any of them) before starting a new one. So sooner or later we hope to have one RP per person.

/b/, does Livvy and HS9's RP have to be closed for me to make a new RP, or can I make a new one without closing it?

As I have said, you need to close all your role plays in order to open new ones.

Also, from now on, a new addon to the rules. Role Plays will not be deleted, but instead locked. From now on, your role plays must be closed until you can open a new one.

I've noticed that someone has 2 RPs now (AHEMARTYMONAHEM), both of which were created AFTER the no-more-than-1-at-a-time thing, and I think Livvy has 2 now aswell, unless she closed Eclipse Academy and I didn't notice.
Just so the mods know this.

YES THAT IS WHAT I WAS SAYING.

She created 2, one of which was AFTER THE RULE WAS CREATED SAYING THAT YOU CAN ONLY HAVE 1 RP AT A TIME.
Well, actually she has 3 now, because Livvy and HS9's RP (but that one was made before the rules too, so she wasn't breaking the rules that time).

And Artymon has 2 now, aswell...
Do they know about the rule or no?

A funny thing is that before reading this thread, I checked the RP page, and saw Artymon open a new RP. I thought "that's out of rules" but then thought someone else might have skipped the rules. Then saw Livia. Then I came here to see that people noticed :P


Anyway, both threads are being dealt with, and as I'm off to the vacation, it's up to others from the mod team to sort it out.

Ta da suckers! :P :D

No, seriously, I'd prefer if I could do it, but I can't, bad timing :(


Anyway, they're both warned for disobeying the rules that were pretty evidently out, and will be punished now by locking threads, and if this repeats, dealt as it usually goes with multiple warnings. I have no idea how, but hey!

Sorry Artymon and Liv, but those are the rules. Can't say "I didn't make them" because I did, but I placed them pretty obviously out here, so...

Hope nothing is taken personal, but if it is, hate me while I'm out on the lakeside!

Peace out folks!

Lol, I admit I opened them in the FF section BEFORE the rules were made, but now that there are rules, I am happy to comply with them and to close down my suckish Rp's.
Sorry for te inconvenience guys x3
