|Welcome to the roleplay forum! Interact with your fellow GamerHang forumgoers in wild and imaginative ways! Anybody with experience in roleplay can agree that loosely enforced rules are a good thing!
1) No spam - An excellent treat on camping trips, but not so welcome in discussion. Posting randomly is likely just to take up space and disrupt the flow. People will like you more if you participate, or even if you started your own roleplay!
2) Play nice - We're all likeminded individuals who respect each other, so no one person will be nudged out of the way for no good reason. In addition, we can all watch ourself and resolve conflict without setting the forum ablaze. Right?
This also includes knowing the difference between disagreement and antagonism, or burning somebody because they made a comment which may have gone beyond your sense of humor. After you make a post with any bit of anger attached, stop, breathe, breathe again if need be, and look at what you wrote. If that really isn't how you think, or you really aren't that angry any more, you can save friendships by rewriting something more agreeable.
Finally, not only do I want people to play nice, I want people to BE nice. What I mean is that tossing out obscenities and insults everywhere will not promote a friendly environment that anybody can participate. If your style is littered with passive-aggressive insults and obscenity, I ask that you reconsider, since these types of things really are not necessary and you can make a point and make it strong WITHOUT resorting to these things... no matter HOW angry you get when typing.
3) Give and Take - Roleplaying is a mutual exchange of storyline, perhaps with stats, between several people, not a chance to be awesome and outsine others. Know what the situation merits, and you can try and show some gusto when the situation merits it, but don't give yourself super powers or invincibility. Make sure to be extra careful about rare super feats when you're particularly angry or sad, too.
Those are pretty much the bare-bones basics of what this forum is about. If you can think of anything else, post away and good ideas will be added in for future updates to the list.
