  • Players who wish to reclaim a character must re-apply if the character has been dropped for over 1 month.

    When you receive a notice of "Queued," that means that your application is in our review queue. If you note that applications before and after yours have gotten that notice, but not yours, please notify a mod, so we can rectify the oversight. Thank you!

    After your application has received the "Queued" note, if you decide to delete or move your application, as a courtesy, and to facilitate our review process please leave us a separate note in this post.

  • To reserve a character for two weeks, please comment below in the following format:
    canon | character | player name | a method of contact (aim / y!m / dw / plurk handle, etc )

  • You can only reserve one character at a time.

  • Please make sure at least a week has passed before commenting to renew a reservation for the same character.

    RESERVED:
    CANON | character | - Player Name ( EXPIRATION date )


    Please try to keep spamming on the low, so we don't make it difficult for people to navigate the page. You're always welcome to PM us, if you'd like us to organize an occasional "meet the reservation-placers" kind of post!

    Thank you!

    You can find our application submission information for OCs HERE.

    Previously we accepted OC-style applications for minor canon characters (canon!OC characters). We no longer accept OC applications for characters who appear in an established canon. Please fill out the canon application form HERE and apply for the character as a canon character.

    APPLICATION NOTES


    Just a set of observations we've made about applications and what we're generally looking for!

    Application Cycles

  • Currently, the game accepts application submission at any time, with a note that verdicts will generally take anywhere between 1-7 days. Feel free to contact a mod, if a week has passed, and you've not received any feedback on your application.

  • If you are applying for a character that's been reserved by someone else, their application will have to be reviewed before yours. This might delay the process of judging your application.

  • You can only apply for one canon, or original character each week.

  • You can reserve one character for a duration of two weeks. You cannot reserve a character that has already been reserved, or that is currently being applied for.

    Please post your entire application in the application thread. Please do not link to your application on another site or journal. It assists mod perusal if your entire application is in the same place at the same time.

    Acceptable Characters
    At this time, we do not accept:

    ♦Characters based off real persons
    ♦Duplicates of taken characters
    ♦AU (alternate universe) versions of canon characters
    ♦Characters based off real life pantheons, excluding their representations as part of a particular fandom (Ares from Xena is okay; Ares from Greek mythology is not)
    ♦"Younger" or "older" versions of a taken character
    ♦Characters which originate from works of fanfiction and have definite ties to canon characters; this rule stands even in the case of consent being given from the present players of said canon characters. (example: no long-lost puppies of Scooby Doo.)
    ♦...Mary Sues or Gary Stus of any shape or size

    If you are considering an original character (OC) it is very important that you read our section on OCs!

    Players can play up to ten characters on a normal basis; anything beyond that number, however, can only be applied under the following circumstances:
    ♦You must have no inactivity issues
    ♦You can only apply one extra character every month
    ♦You lose this privilege if your characters end up on the inactivity list

    THE APPLICATION FORM )

    AFTER SUBMISSION )

    ONCE APPROVED )

    Consider making a concrit thread for your newly acquired character. Your personal critique thread can be as simple as an ooc post in your character journal, inviting commentary, characterization critique, contact, or plot suggestions.

    ENJOY YOURSELF!

    An optional but highly recommended final action is to make an introductory post for your character at [community profile] poly_tldr. Not only will it help luuuuure innocent victims into your newest fandom of choice, but you can also take advantage of the opportunity to hit them on the head with plot or two~


    We hope this has been of some help. As always, please feel free to contact the mods if you have any questions at all.

    CHARACTER REQUESTS


    If you have a particular need or simply feel that the presence of a certain yet-unapplied character would benefit your RP experience, feel free to try to curry applicants' favour, fight for the [lost? ^^;] cause, or just all around beg here.

    Fill in the following Merry Olde Template...



    ...and hope for the best!


    Please make note of any plotlines [either pre-existent or potentially intended] that might affect the wanted character. If your wanted character is applied, either comment again here to state so, or delete your comment.

    RULE I: ONE POST // THREE CHARACTER REQUESTS AT MOST. Be SPECIFIC about the character you want. If you put up "any character from fandom X", then you obviously don't need them especially much. DO NOT LIST MORE THAN THREE NAMES OR THE REQUEST GETS DELETED. DON'T BE INDECISIVE.

    RULE II: no spamming. Keep it nice and clear so people can read through, or comments get deleted.

    This list is cleared at the first of each month to keep it from overflowing and overwhelming.

    ! Can haz [personal profile] app_this_plz for further crew whoring purposes? :D
