no godmodding, mary sues, gary stus, or powerplaying please! keep your character in character and don't do wildly improbable things (e.g. a hobo wouldn't fly first class to dubai).
ooc behaviour cliques and exclusion of members will not be tolerated. if you do not wish to plot with someone because your characters are not compatible, that is your prerogative. but under no circumstances should you be rude, derogatory, or disrespectful to another member. be civil at all times - and above all, be classy!
registration register with your character's first name and last name all in caps! please make sure you avoid duplicate names (both first and/or last names) to avoid confusion!
character limit is currently set at 6. speak to an admin if you'd like to make more! your first 2 characters are "free" - that is, you can make a second character as soon as you want. however, to make a 3rd, you must have 100 posts on your first and second character. to make a 4th, you must have 50 posts on your first, second, and third character, etc.
ratios we enforce a 2:1 ratio rule - example: if your first two characters are female, your next must be a male. note: this only applies to female characters - if you wish to make 4 males in a row, you are welcome to do so.
claims the face claim and member directory are mandatory. if you do not claim your playby within 3 days of being accepted, your playby can be used by someone else. no underage or deceased celebrities will be allowed on start a flame. you must use a visibly famous individual (model, actor/actress, athlete, musician) - no obscure faces. only models from renowned modelling agencies will be approved (i.e., IMG models)! individuals from flickr, deviant art, tumblr, or myspace will not be permitted. additionally, alt models and scene faces will also not be accepted. lastly, we will be enforcing the -5/+5 rule, meaning that your character must be within five years (-/+) of their face claim's actual age.
