General Rules and Guidelines

SWS from Livejournal has been imported to DW.
If you have a username here and wish to claim your openID, please click the link to the right:

A story MUST be in six words, no more, no less - including strikeouts. Mods will contact you and/or delete stories not following this simple rule. (If you use a cut, the cut must also be six words - mostly this applies to mod entries, but can apply for spoiler/other cuts.)

Due to the speed of posts in this comm, please limit posts to one per journal per 24 hour period. This will change if posting speed picks up again.

Please do NOT use post subject headers - They aren't needed.

You MUST use tags! There are four (five if you count the Mod Tag) that are pretty self explanatory! (But further description is offered below)

You CAN promote communities here. (As long as it is a Six Word Story and you use the OOC and/or META tag.) Mods are aware that RP is starting to pick up at DW, but it's not as active as other sites. However, if community promotion becomes an issue, this rule will change.

Don't post anything that is considered PG-13 and higher as your story. This is an "open to all ages" comm, let's keep it family friendly.

DO USE COMMENT SUBJECT HEADERS - if you need them. This is especially for Trigger Warnings. We know the nature of RP, things can change before you know it, but try to keep in mind people under 12 might read this comm, so even with headers, let's leave the graphic things to other comms and private journals.

Please use "Verse Listing" and "OOC info" fields to denote OOC information (note: "OOC Info" allows for HTML) Please don't use Entry Headers. (Verse Listing = Location and OOC Info = Music)

Be aware that some journals that post here are personal journals and they are welcome to interact. We invite everyone to get to know each other and have fun. Note to all: This means that sometimes 'real individuals' will be interacting with 'fandom muses' - this is also encouraged and can be a lot of fun! If you post about a personal story and are concerned about fandom muses, please use the OOC fields, that's why they are there.

Let's keep this fun and stress free! If you have a problem with a player or a poster, do not directly call them out within the post itself or the post's comments, take it elsewhere or contact a mod with a link to the post/comment in question as well as a description of the problem. Mods are not mind readers and sometimes we see things differently than you, the more information you give us, the better.

Descriptions of the tags:

ooc: Out of Character, used to say things as yourself, but using your muse journals.

meta: Things going on your character wouldn't know about from canon. For instance: A character commenting on something that happens in their own future. Also, can be used to reference something in the Mun's life (Similar to Dear_Mun)

roleplay: the tag indicate you are open to roleplay. Can be used in conjunction with "personal journal" to show that an 'real person' is open to RP characters tagging them.

personal journal: Used to post from your personal journal about stuff going on in your life. (May be used in conjunction with "roleplay" to show that an individual is open to RP characters tagging them.)
