I'm new here, this is a question.

What is expected of me in my posts?
Is there a certain size or a quality it must correspond with?

Yoooo.

Staff can shoot me if I am wrong, but I don't think there is any specified word count. So you can write as much as you wish or as much as it makes sense for you to do so, long or short :-) That's at least how I've done it.

Hopefully that was right and I answered your question, matey!

Edit: I don't know if someone's already answered your question, though. But there's my attempt at an answer xD

If you would like to know what are the requirements/expectations for posting, characters and also other tid bits of information, it is really recommended to go read The Rules and Information, more specifically, 'Rules for playing here'. It is very well explained there and more. Everybody is actually very welcome to go read them every so often when in doubt!

I am new here too, but I have a rather different issue at the moment - it took me a lot of humming and harring before I joined and now I feel like a rabbit caught in the headlights. HELP!

Oh dear.

*turns the headlights off*

I hope that helps?

Anyway... I'm Sharpie - I'm the admin here and I'm perfectly friendly, as indeed is everyone else. If you've got any queries or anything, please ask and we'll be glad to answer. We've recently had a rearrangement of things, so there may be something you really need to know that we've actually overlooked.

Anyway. Take a look around and make yourself at home! It's good to have you here!

Sharpie

I think maybe I might be starting to grasp the situation a little better since my last frantic post.

Though I'm not entirely sure if I've set my account up right (especially my username). I think I understand that you have to have different accounts for your characters, but do you have to put forward your application with an account designed for that specific character? This account I set up is basically just my name because after my long deliberation over whether to sign up I just took the plunge and used my name. I hope I haven't caused much confusion seeing as I've not even been here five minutes!

Post  Sam Oxley on Wed Jan 15, 2014 3:47 am

(I'm Sharpie, replying from one of my many IC accounts...)

The short answer is no, you don't need to post an application for a character from that character's account. I personally prefer to, but I don't force personal preferences on other people.

If you would like to change your account name, maybe to a nickname or penname or something - or to a character name - just let me know what you'd like me to change it to. Your password will stay the same.

I can understand and appreciate how nervous you must be to even make an account when you don't know anyone. As for confusion, nope! If you're new to role-playing, that's absolutely fine; we've all got to start somewhere... and the same applies if you're new to account-per-character or our particular software or set-up.

If you're not sure about what sort of character to play, the best thing is to think about what aspect of the period you like - if you prefer reading Hornblower (for example) start with someone aboard HMS Terpsichore.

Aha! I see. Well seeing as I'm still finding my way around here I'll perhaps wait a little while before creating a character though I have plans! And yes, sorry to bug you if its possible to change my account name seeing as it may not be all that wise for me to have it as my full real name.

That's OK - plans are good. If you need help with the application, or anything else, do ask.

What would you like me to change your account name to?

You're very welcome!

I'm not going to bug you, but I am pretty excited you've decided to join us, and I'd like to help you get started as soon as possible, so if there's anything else I can help with, please say!

Haha! I'm not the sort of person that gets bugged! I'm pretty excited that I joined myself. Everything's looking a lot clearer to me now!

I'm still dithering on whether I should use an OC or one from the Aubrey-Maturin series seeing as there doesn't seem to be many on here. I'll let you know nearer the time that I start filling out my application!

You're an Aubreyad fan! (Like I couldn't guess from seeing your avatar and username, though...)

We've got plenty of RP opportunity available for Navy characters aboard our frigate HMS Terpsichore, whether you prefer to be a sailor or an officer - actually, we're looking for a new Second Lieutenant, due to having a player leave because of RL reasons, if that's something you might like to consider. And no, we don't expect you to know all the minutiae of how to sail a tall ship - this is RP after all, we're not writing a textbook...

Whatever you decide you'd rather play, there's plenty of RP opportunities.

Hello LesserWeavel!
Nice to have you on board - Looking forward to playing with you.
(I'm Mar on CBox, this is one of my Char accounts)

Uh, Sharpie, not wanting to bother you, but Mitchell somewhat timidly asks whether he has to walk the plank?

Um. Oops.

My mistake.

We're looking for a new Third Lieutenant. Mr Mitchell is of course our Second. Embarassed

Mr Mitchell, please don't flog me - it was a genuine mistake!!
