Not sure about some of the ways that poly works? Start here. If you don't see what you're looking for, please go to the Poly Q&A page and ask your questions. We'll answer you there and get this area updated to make sure the next person with the same question can benefit from your experience and find that answer.

✘R U L E S
[✜] Keep your character(s) active. Please see our activity requirements here. Your character will be dropped & put up for someone else to app if we realize that it has been inactive for a month. You may re-app for that character if you wish to do so. There will be no exceptions to this rule unless the player has previously informed the mods that: a. they were on hiatus b. RL problems, c. school-related problems or d. lack of internet connection.

[✜] There is to be no godmodding. This specifically means that you will NOT attempt to control another person's character. Be polite, respect your fellow players & ask for permission from the player him/herself before you do anything. Alternatively, do not presume access to information revealed OOCly.

[✜] Keep OOC problems out of character. An RP is for fun; it isn't a personal battleground for you to have your characters start sniping at each other just because you dislike the player. You'll get booted out with no apologies if we find out that this is being done.

[✜] Contact the mods if things get out of hand in game. We don't bite and we're more than open to helping out if a modly hand is needed. You can formally reach us through the moderator e-mail we all have access to, which is polychromatic.mods [@] More often than not, try AIM / messengers / email.

[✜] [community profile] poly_chromatic is a community-based game. All in-character Network posts are to be posted on [community profile] poly_chromatic. The log community is located at [community profile] tampered. All intro/hiatus posts you wish to share with the group are posted at [community profile] poly_tldr. Mod notices, plot announcements, and moderator-sponsored gamewide posts will be hosted in [community profile] thatrainbowcity. If you're a plurk user, you can also spot mod announcements at [ profile] polymods.

[✜] Please tag all in-character posts on [community profile] poly_chromatic with a tag in the format as follows; "character's canon - character's name". Please use the character's canon as it appears in the Taken List and list the character's name in Western style (given name first, family name last).

[✜] Please keep your characters true to character. Evolution is good, but complete and utter mutilation? Not so much. Staying IC is much appreciated.

[✜] 24 notice should be given for any future major events & plots that will happen within the game. These posts will appear on [community profile] poly_tldr (especially if the post is an organizational post so players can find each other for plotting for an event) or [community profile] thatrainbowcity.

[✜] This RP is het, yuri and yaoi friendly. But it prefers chocolate chip cookies over cake. But it does not discriminate in its sugar tastes, because sugar is love, and such is ninja_mod's addendum.

[✜] You are allowed to apply for 10 characters or fewer. If no inactivity problems present themselves, you are allowed to join the ranks of RP martyrdom and exceed that number.

[✜] Please contact a mod if you are going on hiatus. However, if you must hiatus for more than two months, you cannot keep the character. If the character is available upon your return, you can pick them back up again.

[✜] If you are dropping a character, please comment here so that we can remove the character from the Taken List.

[✜] This community is unrated. If you are under the age of eighteen we prefer not to hear about it, thanks ~ ~ however, un-lj-cut posts will generally cater to a work-friendly environment.
