Please make sure to register with the character's full name (this includes middle if they have it) in lowercase. If you happen to not register correctly then you can fix it yourself by going to your control panel and clicking 'change username'.
Also, please keep in mind the names of other characters on the site. We realize that San Diego is a big city and there will be plenty of people with the same name, but for the sake of not being confusing please check the member list because we will not allow more than 3 characters with the same name.
When applying, give us a good idea of what the character is like. When finished, make sure to bump your application. An Administrator will get to it, but please give us at least a day to look over it before you begin to wonder about being accepted.
When getting ready to make your character keep in mind that we will not accept anyone under the age of eighteen.
Character count we won't limit you, but please be mindful of how many you can handle.
The first two characters are free to be made, but after that each character must have an active thread.
Racebending is allowed for characters who are originally white. Snow White can be black, asian, latina, etc. However, we will not allow whitewashing. For spirits who are not originally white (Tiana, Jasmine, Mulan, etc), you are allowed to pick a playby whose ethnicity is either originally as same as the spirit, or as close to the spirit as possible. Animals also fall into this. The Lion King, Kung Fu Panda, etc need to be the ethnicity implied.
For example, if the spirit is of East Asian descent, then you are required to use a play by that is also of East Asian descent. You must also stick to the playby's ethnicity when you are creating a character. This means that Mulan can have a Korean play-by, but you must create a Korean character with the spirit of Mulan.
We do allow genderbending but only in secondary/minor characters.
When getting ready to pick out your spirit please keep in mind that we will not allow characters from certain hybrid films. If you are considering a spirit from a hybrid film ask yourself this: 1. Does animation interact with the live action in any moment(s) of the film? and 2. Does the film take place in mostly in the real world? If the answer is yes to one or both of these then the film won't be allowed. Examples would be Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Enchanted.
You may only have one main character from the same franchise. You may, however, be allowed to have a main character and a supporting/minor character from the same franchise.
We know that real life is important and we expect everyone to take care of their real life first; however, what we do ask is that you need to be gone for a period of time to post an absence notice.
To keep a character active we ask that you, have made a post or have made at least 5 cell posts. If you haven't posted in 14 days, you character will become inactive and you'll have post in moderation to be moved back into the right group and remake your claims.
To reactivate, you can either have 5 cell posts, a thread post, or a development piece
This is an intermediate to advanced site. We don't have a set word count. Quality over quantity.
Tag your posts with TW, M, etc! Also give a brief description of what the thread is going to include whether it is violence, sexual, etc.
Be kind. Be respectful. Be civil.
