We would like to introduce a new feature for you guys. Experience gifts are for any member that wants to create art for another person and give all of the image's experience to the recipient. The guidelines for doing so are:
The artwork must show the recipient's character prominently. (NPCs count)
GIFT must be included in the title
The artist must put in the comments to whom the experience goes (this may be all to one person or broken up between everyone whose characters are in the image)
The artist must also include a sentence or so as to why they are making the gift (along the lines of a personal message)
The artist may only give one 'thing' to a person at a time (one finished piece, one couple-page comic, etc. so that no one is getting leveled up soley by gifts.)
Gifts will not be counted for event experience, but full experience will be awarded for the gift
To begin, a few updates for you all.
Informational journals have been updated with information from the forums. The forums are still cleaner though, so we prefer them as a source.
A directory was added to make finding information easier. Journals and forum links are both included where applicable.
An error found in the jobs section was corrected. The informant->messenger->courier line had been listed correctly, but the job definitions were out of order. We apologize to all that has confused or inconvenienced; those of you that are messengers, you must start out as informants. Again, we're really sorry about all the confusion! Please note us if you have an issue.
A new chatroom was created to help ease traffic around rp. It can be found linked in the main chat and the directory.
The member directory has been updated with alignment shifts and new members. (It will not fall behind again, don't worry!)
The rules journal has been cleaned up.
If there are any other issues you'd like to bring to our attention, comment below!
Now, about the new chat
A few members have voiced concerns with the chatrooms, so along with the introduction of the new chat, we'd like to address those issues briefly.
There are currently three chatrooms up for use: the main chat, the new chat (rp chat), and the mature chat. The main chat can still be used for casual rp, but when large numbers of people are in the chat or ooc is starting to crowd out rp, the new chat was made to accommodate it. If you move RP to the new chat, there will be less traffic coming in and out, as most people will head to the main chat first. Similarly, mature chat can be occupied for mature or crack rp.
On this note, while we encourage you guys hanging out in main chat and talking, you should still be courteous to those who do (and even those who don't) want to rp. If you want to rp with someone (starting or joining), it's polite to ask nicely. Try not to whine or demand it from people, many people aren't receptive to this and won't be as willing if you ask that way. Additionally, if an rp is already occurring, please try not to make a whole lot of idle chatter; it makes it hard for those participating to follow. Thanks!
If you have further questions or comments, please feel free to let us know.
Have a nice day!
