Registration Agreement

THE INPUT UNDER THE CAPTCHA NEEDS TO BE ANSWERED WITH THE BOARD NAME (aphelion).
Our rules are simple. Treat others as you would like them to treat you. Recognise that not everyone will live, or role-play, like you, and just accept these differences. If you don't like someone, avoid them.

Any issues that come up with, or between, players, will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis, with respect to circumstance and situation, as they come up, should they come up. Something not being "against the rules" is not an excuse.

We have no word count, no required app, no strict activity checks, no character caps/ratios/bans.

Do not use bright, neon, or otherwise blinding colors, do not make the font size smaller than it already is, and do not use gif images anywhere.

Avatar sizes are 250x250. The larger image in profiles is 500x500. Signature images must not cumulatively go beyond 500px in width and 200px in height.

Communicate; if you're busy, not feeling a thread, or not feeling a character, just say that.

Play bys are optional. Players may also opt to use CG artwork from video games instead (just try and keep it realistic).

Our site rating is 3.2.2/PG-13 by default. It goes above that into 3.3.3/nc-17. One has to input their birth date into their OOC profile to be able to see these. By doing so, you are affirming you are above eighteen (18) years old and are okay with seeing mature content (and we're not talking just sex, gore and extreme violence can also happen). Should one choose to unlock these threads, the staff cannot be held responsible for what they read.

Privacy Policy

Our site stores cookies in one's browser. This cookie is solely to keep a user logged in, and may be cleared from browser at will. This will log you out, however. By logging in and using the site, you're agreeing to have this cookie stored. There are a few others that keep certain user settings, such as the category collapse states and read/unread topics, stored.

All information stored into the database is voluntarily added. Profiles may be filled out at will as one wishes, however, there are a few logs, such as the ones that remember what threads/posts a user has read, that are generated automatically. These cannot be accessed by anything by the forum software, and are employed solely to ensure the site's function, nor are they personally identifiable.

Our software also collects and logs all user IP addresses. These addresses are numerical routing values used by computers to talk to one another; no matter what you're doing online, you are broadcasting an IP address. Users can opt to hide this address, but do so at their own risk. This IP address is stored only for reference, is not identifiable, and cannot be used to pin-point exact real-world location.

Any personal messages that go through the site can and may be read by staff; if they are reported, it goes straight to the staff, and we can and may check the database logs to make sure nobody's tampered with anything, particularly if something doens't add up, or we get the sense someone is lying.

Users that wish to leave the site may do so, and if they wish for their information to be removed, can save their profile(s) blank. After a certain period of time, accounts will be removed, but if one would like them removed sooner, may request such. Posts may be removed on request, we would prefer to keep them in-tact for story archive purposes, but users can request them removed. If one deletes their account, they cannot request post removal afterward. It is not easily doable, and we cannot verify that the user is who they say they are.

Our site does not sell information to anyone else, and do not track signals from browsers are adhered to (we use Google Analytics for traffic insights, and reCaptcha to help fight spam). Email input will never cause emails to be sent out; if one forgets their password, please post in the Help Desk to retrieve this, as the default method of doing so does not work.
