We are a fiction role play and we accept both original and canon characters. Our word count is low at 300 words and the required application is a simple freestyle. Please, look around and join with a first and last name in ALL CAPITAL letters. Existing members, please log in to your accounts at least every week!
02/09/2014 A character limitation has been added to the rules. You are allowed you have as many characters as you want, but there is now a waiting period. Please refamiliarize yourself with the rules for more information!
02/01/2014 Things are changing! The theme colors have changed as well as the general layout of the banner hover. Also, welcome Michie as the new co-admin! 01/28/2014 The site is done and ready to be opened! Welcome everyone, guests and members alike!

[PTabbedContent] [PTab=SITE RULES]
► Respect should be something you're used to be now as it is addressed in pretty much every single rule thread in the history of rule threads. Obviously, a site can't work very efficiently if everyone is at each other's throats. ► Be nice and respect the staff as well as all the members. Don't disrespect guests as long as they are respectful in turn. ► Keep the drama in character. Just because Jane's characters hates your character doesn't mean Jane hates you. Okay?
► With regards to the cbox (hover over the banner), please use appropriate language. We don't want people getting the wrong idea because our members are dropping f-bombs every sentence.
► When registering, please sign up with any username you want, but change your display name to your character's FIRST AND LAST NAME in all capital letters. ► LDD has a required application, but it's very simple. You have 5 days to complete your application and post it. ► The staff does review the application and can ask you to change things if they think it does not work with the site plot or if we think your character isn't developed enough. Be kind and accept criticism please!
CHARACTERS AND FACE CLAIMS
► Here at Love Don't Die, we have a few important face claims. If you are interested, find the canon list in the claims board. ► When claiming canons, please don't claim them all for yourself. Try to let others get some of the plots! ► In addition to that, try to keep your character diverse and unique. ► We do have a character limit of sorts; Each member is allowed a maximum of three characters when they first join. Of course, everyone is welcome to have many more than three, but you have to wait one month between each new character before you can create another. This is to ensure that you are serious about your activity here and can take on a fourth character and so on. So, after you create your third character, you will have to wait at least one month until you can make a fourth, and at least one month after the fourth before you can make a fifth - and so on and so forth. ► Be realistic!
► As far as face claims go, we require them to be an actor, actress, musician, or model. We don't want to see internet famous celebrities or obscure people with very few pictures. In addition, try to avoid goth/emo/scene people as they don't particularly fit the site plot. ► Please don't use any face claims under the age of 10. ► Although the rule isn't +5/-5, it's a good guideline to keep in mind. If the celebrity is 25, then reasonably they can play anywhere from 20 to 30. That said, some people do look younger or older than they actually are. Just use your best judgement!
► Activity is a major part of any site and that said, please try to log in to all of your accounts at least once a week. ► We will have periodic activity checks. If you fail to participate, your account will not be deleted but rather moved to the inactive member group. If you miss a second activity check, that is when your account will be deleted. ► Another way to be considered inactive is if you fail to post for 2 months. It doesn't matter if you've logged on if you haven't posted at all. At this time your account will be moved to inactive. One month later, it will be deleted. ► After one month of not posting, your claims are open to anyone else. ► If you are deemed inactive but you come back you will just have to reapply for your claims. If someone took your face, then you're out of luck.
POSTING AND TEMPLATES
► Our word count is 300 words, so please do your best to get there. ► Try your very best to match your partner or at least give them something to work with. It's very hard to keep a thread going when all you do is post a paragraph or less. ► If your thread is completed, mark it as such. It can be moved to the archives if you wish it to be moved! ► Realistically, people will have sex and they will drink. But try to keep that to a minimum! The site is rated PG-13, so while we accept that these things happen in the real world, don't post porn! Fade to black please!
► When posting, use templates that are easy to read. Don't have insanely contrast-y colors or neons with white text. That is painful. In addition, use fonts and sizes that aren't difficult to see. ► We do have a plug in that allows google fonts, but not the way you might know it in DOHTML. If you would like to use a certain font, politely send a PM to the Hannah with a link to the font and she will sort it out for you. Within reason.
► Avatars should be 200x300 pixels and nothing else. There is a gif involved in your mini-profile and that should resize to fit no matter the original size of the file. ► Signatures can be up to 600 pixels wide although please don't go overboard with them.
