GENERAL RULES-Be Respectful, everyone. That's the first and foremost rule of AVIAS Calling. We want everyone to have a good time and that means thinking about your actions sometimes. This doesn't mean you have to be overly cautious, but just be courteous and keep in mind that everyone has feelings.
-Try to use proper english. This means proper spelling, grammar, and complete sentences. Of course, artistic liberties can be used, as everyone has a different writing style! But keep it reasonable both inside and outside of roleplay, please. Clear communication is key!
-All information is copywritten to the respective people who have created it! That means no stealing! Please be mindful of this.
-Remember each character is owned by someone, so no powerplaying please. If a scene requires more than general physical action between characters, discuss that need with the other person or persons you are writing with so that everything is clear and understood. PMs are a great way to do this! Also it is suggested to keep a written log of these things so that they can be referenced later should a disagreement arise, although of course we at AVIAS Calling hope that that never happens!
-On the note of powerplaying and character injury, all plot related injuries (including threadfall and hatchings) will be asked for prior to plots. The administration will post a thread asking for volunteer characters, including how badly you wish for your character to be injured. No other injuries will be sustained. We want you to know you have ultimate control over what happens to your character here. Impression color aside, your character's fate is your own. We're all just along for the ride!
-Be respectful of the Administrators. We're here to make sure everyone feels safe and has a good time. We want you to be able to come to us when you have an issue and feel safe doing so. Please know you're ALWAYS welcome to PM us about things you wish to discuss. We're here to help you.
-Our rating system here is PG-13. This means that threads with up to this rating can be posted in the general forum. Anything else that broaches a topic that's more than PG-13 needs to be marked as such with what type of material is inside. Certain plots will be more than PG-13 and will be marked as such so that everyone can be safe. If a thread needs to be moved, please let an Administrator know and we will be happy to do so! Special boards will be designated for these threads. They will be hidden from the general board so that no one need look at them.
-No perfect characters. This kinda goes without saying, but still. No one is perfect, and so neither should characters be. We know everyone has different writing levels, and if you're having trouble with something, even if it isn't a perfect character, please let one of the administrators know, and we'll be happy to help you.
-Have Fun! That's the big one and most important. We want you to have a good time, so if you aren't, please let us know if we can help in some way. You all are important to us, and we want this to be a fun place for everyone to come and write. We want AVIAS Calling to be a place where people from all walks of life, and all writing levels can come and share in the joy of story telling.
