- This guide is meant to serve those who are new to the site, but primarily is a guide for those who are unfamiliar with forum RP. As such, some parts of this guide may be more in-depth than the average RPer may need (or wish) to read. If you are not new to the RPing world, feel free to glance over these topics, or else read the below summary of each topic in the index. If you are completely new to Roleplaying, or forum RP, I encourage you to read this guide. It is long, it may be repetitive, but it will hopefully help make the transition into forum RP easier.
i. Age to join WR: This is just a segment detailing the course of action to take if you are UNDER the age of 13 and are trying to join this site. If it is not applicable to you, don’t worry about it.
ii. Usernames – on site and in chat: Here, we talk about the format of usernames both on the site and in the chat. Simple answer – on the site, use First-name Last-name. In the chatbox, you can use whatever alias you wish to go by. Details on how to change your username for the site are written in that post, so view it if you need to change. Details on how to register for the chatbox are also written out, so if you can’t figure out how to do it on your own, please do read the post on it.
iii. Avatars: Plainly put, we allow drawn images as long as you have the right to use them. Celebrities, models, etc are also allowed. The dimensions of your image must be 250 x 450. No nudity, gore, or other inappropriate images are allowed as avatars. Avatars can be disabled from board view – check out the post to learn how.
iv. Word Counts, Resorts, & Writing: WR is a no word count site with the exception of word counts on sorting applications ONLY. You may request to be resorted to another House as long as you speak to the admin who sorted you, kindly.
v. Write in THIRD PERSON and PAST TENSE. Misc. info on writing in pairs or groups is detailed.
vi. Freshly sorted and ready to go!: Visit this post to find your next steps in integrating yourself onto the board after you’ve been sorted. General information here is brief, but informative on how to get your footing on the board. Things like claims, what they are, plot threads and plotting and what those entail, are described here. This summary has not been very useful because this segment isn’t long, and is more useful read than skimmed through.
