Thread = The grouping of several posts that are related to one topic or idea
Post = In a forum, it is the complete entry you make on a thread. In a chat, it's each paragraph you enter. Sometimes I accidentally switch, Post and paragraph, it's because I started with chats and moved to forums. Please excuse me if I confuse you, I don't me to do so on purpose.

Roleplaying is when you assume a different profile. Most people define roleplaying as making a plot and adding characters to play along it.

A plot is the story!

Now all basic roleplays usually have these things,

  • A plot
  • Rules/Guidelines
  • Character form sheet
  • Setting


If you don't have a proper plot or rules, we will remove your thread. YOU MAY re-create it though.

PLEASE unless you are the owner of the thread, don't God-mod or mod.

God-modding is when you put yourself at a higher authority over everybody else. OR when your characters isn't killed or hurt from a mortal wound.

No Powerplaying either.
Powerplaying is when you play someone else's character.

EXAMPLE OF BASIC RP RULES!
~ No Godmodding/Modding/or Powerplaying
~ Please keep romance and battling PG-13
~ No cursing or swearing
~ Follow all the rules or regulations of CivilKids.

(These don't have to be used directly. They can be modified. It's your RP)

Chat Parentheses.
If you have something to say out of character,
put them in double or single parentheses.
