    When you make a topic, (aka, an “encounter”) in the roleplay section of the site, there are a few things that need to be done in order to prevent any misunderstandings by the other members, and to help clearly establish your character’s timeline. So here’s what you need to know:

    First off, when you make a new encounter, you need to clearly convey if you want only certain people to be a part of the event, or if it’s an open invitation to anyone who wants to be a part of it. To do so, orient the title of your encounter like this: [Encounter Name] [Open] or [Encounter Name] [Private]. To signify that an encounter is over and is no longer active, mark your topic this way: [Encounter Name] [Closed].

    Another thing that needs to be added to the beginning of an encounter is something called a “timestamp”. This little notation is a way to let people know where and when an encounter is taking place. The format for that looks like this:

    [Day] [Month], [Year]:
    [Time of Day]

    As far as the year is concerned, it is established officially as 0197. Regulation of the day and month will not mandated by the site, but it will be the responsibility of each member to make sure that they do not create any continuity errors for themselves. However, please note that this does not null the idea of intervention by the staff if need be.
