|1.||Any post containing adult material, i.e. sex, violence, etc., needs to be behind a cut-tag (if it’s in the main post) or clearly labeled as such (if it’s within the comments of the thread). As a corollary to this, if the moderators discover that any underage players are writing threads with adult content, those players will be immediately ejected from the community. See this post for further clarification.|
|2.||Any plotlines, silliness, whatever-you-want-to-post is generally acceptable, but you MUST clear any physical changes to the bar or its surrounding area with a mod.|
|3.||Canon-puncturing is not allowed. (For a definition of canon-puncturing, read this Mod Post.) Essentially, it means that you need to NOT gad about the bar telling other characters that they’re fictional. Easy enough, right? Right. See the FAQ for more information.|
|4.||If you’re planning a plot for your character that seriously limits the way other characters in the bar act/move/exist/etc., you need to clear it with those other muns first. Failure to do so results in godmodding and wank, and we don’t want either of those things in our happy little comm. In order to contact other muns OOC, you can either make a Back Room post, or check out the Contact List for email addresses, Y!M/AIM/MSN screen names, and so on. Many of the players in Milliways are in OOC contact with one another, and it’s a good way to make friends and stay on top of the plots.|
|5.||If you RP in one of milliways_bar's innumerable sub-communities, any threads there must be linked to from a new post in the main community.|
|6.||And above all, always use common sense. When in doubt, ping a mod – we are always happy to answer questions.|
Please read before sending in an application: Applications are open the first week of every month, unless otherwise posted in ways_back_room. (All players and applicants should watch this community from either a mun or character journal.) Please do not send in an application during the other three weeks of the month, unless it is for a plot-only character as outlined below.
Players may app a maximum of two characters per month, and may have total of ten active characters at any one time. If you already have ten characters and wish to app another, you will need to retire or delete one of the ones you already have. See here for further information.
If you need to app a character specifically for an in-bar plot on top of your monthly/maximum character limits, or outside the regular apps period, please contact a mod and we will see what we can do. This is on the condition that said character is played for that plot only; if you intend to continue playing them as a regular character, then they fall under the above restrictions.
We will approve characters in the order we receive applications. This means characters are first come, first served, and if a player sends in more than two applications, only the first two will be approved. (Plot-only characters are the exception to this rule; see above.)
