The following rules apply for registration, application, in character, and out of character posting. If you have any questions, please contact staff!
RULE 01 kaleidoscope is a one account per character site, meaning each of your characters should have their own account. please register in all lowercase using the format 'firstname lastname'. you may have an ooc account, as well, that must also be in all lowercase.
RULE 02 when registering, please fill out all the spaces to the best of your ability. if you're not quite sure yet, please put in a placeholder to change later. when editing your profile, please try to fill out all spaces to the best of your ability and add a 210x400 px avatar of your character. the square images are 100x100 and should also be an image of your character. if you need help finding images, please let the staff know so they can help you out.
RULE 03 all your characters must have an animanga or animanga style face claim. you may reserve face claims here, but please note reservations are good for only thirty days and the application must be complete at this point. you must wait one week before re-reserving.
RULE 04 please post character applications with the appropriate character account and post in the request-a-staff thread when you have finished. applications not finished within two weeks will be moved to the inactive board, but may still be worked on while in there. applications will be archived if deemed inactive after an activity check. if you need help finding images or understanding the template, please feel free to ask for help.
RULE 05 all characters should be over the age of seventeen, at least, though the majority should be eighteen and up due to the university setting. please keep age in mind when deciding what year/classification your student is in or when auditioning for faculty.
RULE 06 this site operates on real time, so for every year in real life, your character ages a year and progresses to the next level of education (for undergraduate students). graduation occurs twice per year and qualifying seniors may participate. characters that have completed their senior year may either be retired, continue to graduate school, or may hold off on graduation as a "super senior" as they complete their coursework.
RULE 07 you may not make a canon character from pokemon or any other series. however, you may use any pokemon face claim, so long as their personality is independent of the face claim. you may only make a human character.
RULE 08 you may have as many characters as you like and can balance, however we require that you post with each character at least once per activity check. activity checks will be held every other month and will last from the fifteenth to the end of the month to ensure plenty of time.
RULE 09 please post in the away board if you believe you will not be able to post in the activity check, wish to notify members of possible slow replies, plan on taking a hiatus, or plan on leaving permanently. if in doubt, post an away.
RULE 10 there is no progression on kaleidoscope as it is a university roleplay that is pokemon themed. liquid time is allowed so that characters may be in multiple threads at once, but please be mindful of continuity. events that happen in one thread should affect any thread started afterwards.
RULE 11 though there is no official word count, we ask that you make an attempt to match the post length of the person you are posting with just to be fair. we also kindly request that you avoid extensive posts that might be difficult for other members to match. please do not godmod, powerplay, or the like.
RULE 12 you are required to keep a pc for each of your characters (whether in the same thread or separate is up to you) in the appropriate board. this must include both their pokemon and items, including eggs. staff will add items to your pc for you when created, but please be honest and don't alter it. we can and will check if necessary.
RULE 14 this is a pg-13 forum where graphic sexual content is not allowed in any form, whether by thread, cbox, or pm. violence is permitted but should not include gore. this is a university rp so graphic and triggering content is unnecessary and should be avoided. this is a happy place~
RULE 15 thank you and please enjoy! always feel free to contact a staff member if you ever need anything- that's why we're here <3
