(1). The difference between a Native and Afflicted Dreamer are these > "Native" means you developed it outside Haven's walls. "Afflicted" means you developed it after working in Haven for a time.
(2). Native Chimera cannot be older than 22, and that is /pushing it/. You should be 20 or younger, unless an admin or mod approves if you are Native.
(1.) You must have a separate account for each character.
(2.) Your display name must be the full name of the character--you can change it in your profile.
(3.) You can have as many characters as you want, but don't get into something you cannot handle. I don't care if certain characters are not as active as others, but don't get a Dreamer student who is going to end up in a dorm with someone else who wants to play and then just not play them--it stops the other person from playing; it's not fun.
(4.) This is a literate board. It's not supremely strict, but we expect decent writing.
We don't require play-bys here at Demential Reverie, but we encourage them. I will explain every ruling and why because I had a hard time swallowing 'em the first time I encountered em, too.
What's a play-by?
A play by is the picture you use for your character.
(1.) Real world characters cannot have drawn art as their play by, if you have one, it has to be a photograph or at least look indistinguishable from one. Why? Because here at DR, we want to separate the real from the fantasy for flavor and feeling.
(2.) You don't have to have a play-by, but we encourage it HIGHLY--to the point of, if you can't find a photograph that reminds you of your character, you can go ask in the General board and we'll help you. Why does it matter? We won't feature you in the sidebar and a lot of the forum games will be inaccessible to you if you don't have a play-by. This is for aesthetics. Graphics are important to the site, too.
(3.) Your playby for a Chimera (a being born in the Reverie) can be anything--art, photograph, cg or wisp of smoke. Why? Because perception in the dream world is different. You can dream in all sorts of different graphics and thoughts and blend them.
(1.) Signatures/avatars cannot be anything pornographic. The Proboards ToS says so. Don't get us in trouble. Suggestive is okay.
(2.) No graphic in your post/signature may exceed 490 pixels in width. You stretch my board, I stretch your head.
