Player's Pen Name: Most people usually go by an online pen-name; for example, I'm usually known as Crimea River. This name will go onto the the Who Plays Who, so make sure and put down which you would see up there.
Contact: Personal Message, E-Mail, Messenger...post up how we can contact you. DO NOT put your address or anything else that could reveal your offline identity. We want people to keep safe.
Roleplay Experience: How long have you been roleplaying? What types of roleplay have you done before?
Language(s): What is your first language? Do you speak any other languages? Don't be ashamed if English isn't your first language. As long as we can understand you, and you can understand us, you can roleplay with us. :)
How did you find us?: Did you find us via Google? Another site? Some other way? If you found us via a site, feel free to link it in here.
Roleplay Sample: This is a sample of your writing. Can be from anything, as long as it is prose.
It is suggested that you type up your profile in PageFour, Wordpad, MS Word, SimpleText, GoogleDocs, or whatever other word processor you have. This way, you can have it on hand in case your browser errs, or it does not go through.
If you don't have these at your disposal, or aren't able to save on your computer, or just prefer to type it up in the post box, feel free to, and if you need to submit it before it's done, just put "(WIP)" in the topic title. Place it into the Character Workshop, which you can also use to get feedback on your app.
Post the profile in New Characters with the character's first, and last (if applicable) name as the title. Put whatever you like for the topic description; for example, "Crazy Ferengi" or "Station Nurse."
Wait for it to be approved. When it is approved, a staff member will say it's approved and move it to the proper subforum. Be sure to read the approval message if you're new; it has suggestions on how to hop into the roleplay.
If there are corrections that need to be made, he or she will note them.
This may take time, depending on your character idea and how long your profile is. As well, if it's a canon, the staff member might want to check with another staffer to make sure. If you have any questions about why your character hasn't been approved or responded to, contact the main admin and he (yes, he) will let you know.
Once approved, you can start roleplaying! And don't forget to have fun, too! ;D
