To ensure that everyone involved is having a good time and to limit potential problems with simming, we have designed posting guidelines to be kept in mind while writing for your characters.
1.) Each player in The Future Begins is expected to post a minimum of one post every five days during an active simming period. Posts should be a minimum of three paragraphs long and should be written in the third person narrative format (similar to what you would find in a novel). One sentence entries are not acceptable as a post.
2.) Tags should be responded to as soon as possible, within a minimum of 48 hours, to allow for story flow and all players to have maximum involvement with the group. When working on a joint post, players will ensure that all tags are answered before posting the message to the entire group.
3.) The Future Begins does not tolerate writing for another persons character unless you have authorization from the owner of the other character. If you want your character to interact with another person's character you may tag them or do a joint post. Further, posts of an overly sexual nature ARE NOT permitted in this group. Violation of this rule will result in an immediate discussion of your status by Game Masters of the game with penalties being decided based upon the infraction.
4.) All The Future Begins players are permitted to hold as many characters as they wish to provided that they can actively maintain each character and don't fall behind on posting. If a player is going to be unavailable for a long period of time, he/she will request a LOA through their Dashboard Control Panel on NOVA.
5.) Promotions are based upon a merit and nothing else. You will be promoted based upon your activity, contributions, and by following the rules. Additionally, a player may choose to leave The Future Begins roleplaying game at any time with or without cause. The Game Moderators may, conversely, remove a player with or without cause as deemed necessary for group operations.
