You are currently looking at Flamebate, our community forums. Players can discuss the game here, strategize, and role play as their characters.

|READ ME: ITT we strictly post in character (and no embedded shock)|
This is Advanced Role-Playing, where users are encouraged to contribute to the community by acting out roles, essentially creating real-time narratives.
Unlike the other RP forums, which are more of a free-for-all, in ARP role-playing will be strictly enforced by mods. This means every post you make here has to correspond to your character’s clbum or established character.
Breaking character — or the illusion of RP itself — can get you banned. So, while it’s cool to troll other RPers if that’s what your character’s about, things like alt-revealing, bringing up a user’s real-life issues or critiquing someone’s ability to role-play are against the rules.
Embedded shock is not allowed in ARP. This is intended to be a forum for creative role-play. Repeatedly posting shock images is not real role-playing. You’ll have to try harder than that.
Modding such a forum requires judiciousness and a strong familiarity with the site and its players. Thus, most of the moderation of this forum will be escalated to and handled by our designated “RP mods.”
This can be a tricky thing to moderate, so please be patient and expect some subjectivity. Don’t use the ARP forum to seriously bring up issues or questions — we’ll just bumume you’re role-playing. If you doubt your ability to faithfully role-play, try practicing in GRP instead.
Please see this page for all our rules. Note that “global” site and Flamebate rules also apply here.
Until code is written to support thread locking, please treat this thread as a locked one which only moderators can reply to. All other posts will be deleted.Jalapeno Bootyhole edited this message on 05/11/2010 6:38PM

Now that you’ve all had your fun ****ting all over the new forum, it’s time to stop.
You had a few hours to get it out of your system. If you don’t like the forum, don’t play in it. It’s really not that difficult of a concept.
I’ll be going through and cleaning out the crap shortly. Bans may or may not be handed out, but anything that doesn’t fall under ARP guidelines that gets posted from here out will earn the warnings/bans as appropriate.
Confused as to what’s allowable? Let me give you some ideas.
Good ideas: True character RP. Established gimmick RP. (We’ll get there in a minute.) Legitimate responses to either of these RP styles.
Bad ideas: “On the fly” gimmicks. Non-legitimate responses intended to do nothing other that **** up ARP. (And yes, we can generally tell the difference between being a legitimate troll and ****ting up ARP.)
So what’s the difference between established gimmick and on the fly gimmick? Established gimmick alts are named appropriately and have a history of posting with that gimmick style. See Fortune Cookie, Google Ads or Not An Alien for a few good examples. On the fly gimmick alts would be a regular user deciding that their new gimmick is (insert gimmick here) and **** posting in ARP just to **** post. This thread is a good example of what not to do.
Still confused? Play in GRP for a while til you get the hang of ARP. REALLY REALLY wanna post but think it might not be ok? Tubmail a mod. Don’t want to do any of those and want to **** up the forums anyway? Take your ban and move on.spacekadt edited this message on 05/11/2010 6:38PM
