Apologies [07 Jul 2003|09:15am]

[ mood | tired ]

Hullo, everyone! I just wanted to apologise that I haven't been on in about a week. I was quite ill and this is the first time I've been able to log on. A friend of mine has been keeping an eye on the game for me and was able to inform me of what's been going on, so I'm up to date (I hope).

MOD POST! READ...please? [02 Jul 2003|06:12pm]
So, I really have no good excuses for why I delayed doing this...forever. I guess I didn't want to boot anybody because it was going really well, but activity has gotten way too low, so I'm going to have to start kicking people out if they don't post. As such, Wednesday will now be sweep day, and the following characters haven't posted since June 25:

Bellatrix Black
Yii-Mei Chen
Joey Jenkins
R. J. King
Kirley McCormack
Bryan Quigley (I remember there being something about her computer. Rae?)
Evan Rosier
Katelyn Scott
Veronica Smethley
Severus Snape

You've got until July 9 to either post or give me a heads-up about not being able to.

And if Rosmerta's player sees this...could you either IM or e-mail me? If I don't hear from you by this weekend, I'm afraid I'm going to have to remove you, and I really don't want to do that.

Now, off to post in 2354365 places to pimp the community and get players.

Hi everyone!

I'm Shelbey, and I'm going to play Dillan Moran! She's one of the Irish Quidditch chasers from the World Cup, so I was hoping that she could play for the Ravenclaw team, even though she's just a fourth year.... ::bats her eyes and begs::

Anyways, I'm open to any plot ideas and what not! My AIM is moranquidditch and my e-mail is irish_chaser@hotmail.com.

I'm really glad to be here!

- Shel

Right... [22 Jun 2003|05:30pm]
...so, OotP doesn't effect this rp that much, but...it's up to you whether we reset to canon or not. It'd just be a few little things...first names change...Sirius becomes related to everybody...Lupin is prefect...James is an ass...stuff like that. So, I'm up for it, and it wouldn't that that much effort to do the tweakage necessary to make it canon.

And randomly, the Ootp marauders are officially my gods, and I'm in love with marauder!Remus. That is all.

So... [15 Jun 2003|04:00pm]
...I actually did something almost on time-ish, and went through and looked at posting from June 8 on, and these are the characters that I didn't see post and/or in a thread:

Madeline Spencer
Rosmerta Ballard
Sirius Black

Have somebody IM/e-mail me or do it yourself if you're not able to post between now and next Sunday, or, much to my dismay, I'll actually have to remove a character from the game, and I really don't want to do that.

That's it. I'm stoked at how well the game is going, kids~

Just a few quick notes... [13 Jun 2003|10:12am]
...since I'm awake at ten in the morning and all that jazz.

1. I'm going to start doing posting sweeps today. You basically have to post every week, and if you don't you'll have until the next week to post, although this shouldn't be used as an excuse to just post biweekly and that's it. Although, unlike certain people (not any of you, I'm just making a dig at a random person that I don't like and will never read this...*shrug*), I do understand that things happen, and people do have real lives to deal with. If something is going on, e-mail me. If you don't, I'm not lazy and am quite capable of asking around, so don't stress about it.

2. If you've sent an app in in the past two weeks or so, resend it just to be sure. My e-mail is acting nutty and deleting e-mails, but I've pretty much sorted it out, so yeah. If you know somebody who has sent one, prod them into resending. I'm sorry~! It looks bad when I don't reply, but I can't.

That was about it. If I think of anything else, I'll probably be too lazy to edit it in, so...bye. ^_________^

MOD-POST! REEEAD ITTT~! [08 Jun 2003|12:14am]
All right...

I had hoped that I wouldn't run into this, but, alas, I have, and must post something about it here, because it's already getting out of hand. What is this elusive 'it,' you ask? Ad-libbing.

The only reason I'm proclaiming that ad-libbing is not allowed is because it really, REALLY messes peoples' plot-lines up when one person assumes that their character knows something that they don't/shouldn't; chaos ensues. I'm in a lot of rps, and in most of them ad-libbing has caused a lot of trouble, so I'm going to put a stop to it now.

As an example - and I don't mean to pinpoint certain people, it's just that this is the most blatant case thus far - some players are having their characters rattle on about how certain said characters are that Sirius and Remus are, indeed, a couple. When a player writes "out of his/her sight" or "out of his/her earshot" it is automatically assumed that the character hears and/or sees nothing that follows until he/she is addressed again. So far so good? Also, when Sirius and Remus are acting buddy-buddy it's because they are buddy-buddy and that's how they always act. Even though the player knows there's more there, the character does not, therefore characters can't randomly pick up on things that weren't there to pick up on in the first place.

If Sirius and Remus were having sex in the middle of the hospital wing and your character saw, then yes: it could become a part of your character's knowledge; however, if Sirius was joking around with Remus - like he always does - and Remus was joking back, then it cannot be assumed that your character already knows about their relationship, as they're best friends and they just act like that.

Nobody is in trouble or anything. Besides, I'm too nice to actually kick somebody out of an rp for something this tiny, but I do ask that you just...refrain from doing it again. Rather, read through the posts veeeery carefully. If it looks like your character shouldn't know it, they probably shouldn't.

I don't know if I'm making any sense here, as I slept for six hours last night and am barely coherent as is, let alone the whole typing thing.

So...just use your common sense here. Good friends = playing around...not automaticallyinarelationship. Same goes with the scene in the Great Hall. Sirius saved Remus from boredom. He didn't snog him in the middle of the hall. If they weren't in a relationship, it would have most likely played out the same way, as they're really good friends and are inherently goofy and snarky. I'm just trying to make everybody happy, and when the cover is blown in a manner that isn't true to events in the rp, people get mad, because they spent the extra time being careful that everything was covered up and whatnot.

However, some people have innate agreements with others about ad-libbing. For example, as many of you know I, Erin, play Alex in this game. Redd, whom I rp with on a daily basis, plays Flint. We talk to and/or rp with each other nearly every day, so we've got this intrinsic ad-libbing rule with each-other: I can ad-lib her characters, and she can ad-lib mine. This is because a) I trust her to do the right thing, and b) most of my characters are in relationships with hers anyway. So, yes. It's allowed, but on a permission-by-player basis, which contradicts something I said earlier, I think, but I'm sleepy, so neh.

That was it. This applies to everyone and everything, but, as earlier stated, that example is the easiest to identify and use. The rp is going really well, though...and I'm having looots of fun...so yay! Okay. Sleep.

Oh, and some people didn't catch this, or so I've seen, so I'm re-posting it:

The game opens the week before final exams. They're all next week, and then the OWLs/NEWTs are the next week. This means that your characters will start the next term in the year that they're listed as in the info thing.

So, for example (I'm an example WHORE), Alex is listed a seventh-year, so he's a sixth-year until exams are over, then NEXT term he'll be a seventh-year. That confusion is my fault...I did the info in a ditzy way.

Hi everyone. I'm Maile, and I'll be playing Katelyn Elisabeth Scott (Kate or Katie), a perky, bubbly, friendly, innocent, not too bright 5th year Hufflepuff. She comes from an aristocratic muggle family and is the first witch in her family.

Glad to be here! You can IM me at KatelynEScott.

Hey, I'm Missy, and I'll be playing Meg(han) McCormack, 5th year Ravenclaw, Keeper for the Quidditch team.

People have probably seen her around, know her as the weird art girl that's always out smoking behind the locker room after the Ravenclaw games.

Not your typical Ravie.Collapse )</i>

Her AIM is "meg the raven"--I'll try to have it on whenever I'm here. ^__^

Just a note: I screened something in the Sirius/Remus thread from today. If you don't know why, you don't want to.

That is all.
