BLOG POSTS & FORUM DISCUSSIONS

Blogs are used for stories, dairies (musings), informative articles etc. In Character (IC) journals are most appropriate as are articles related to our historical timeframe.  Please categorize your blog post to help people find them.

Forums are used for everything else; they often invite discussion and are categorized to make it easier to find specific subjects in the wealth of communication. 

When in doubt, use the Forums and for the sake of better communication please don't use both if you can't decide.

Posting long excerpts of written material that is copied from other people's books and articles is not allowed.  Please post a brief "teaser" text and/or image with a link to the source material.

Advertising is not permitted in either blog posts or forum discussions.

IMAGES & VIDEOS

Images are limited to 4 per day and are all approved by site moderators.  Please be patient with the manual approval process.

If you have more than a dozen pictures of the same theme or event, you are encouraged to take those photos and make a video with them that you can post here via YouTube.  This is a wonderful way to showcase your collection of pictures without limitations.

Images are all converted to jpeg files on upload.

Images should be no larger than 1024x1024 and are regularly converted to fit that standard.

Videos links are currently limited to YouTube.  Video sourcing may be expanded in the future.

Advertising is not permitted in either images or videos.

USERS, PROFILES & GROUPS

Users must maintain at least one Profile which reflects their unique avatar information.  This Profile cannot be used for stores, companies, groups etc.  A user may mention his/her business in their Profile Biography.

In some cases a User may have more than one Profile to facilitate their roleplay identities.

Duplication of Historical Groups & Figures is allowed. However, new users are strongly encouraged to educate themselves with regard to currently used Historical Groups & Figures and adjust accordingly. Let's face it, being one of twenty "Marie Anotinettes" can lead to confusion and will probably not be as satisfying in the long run as carving out your own special niche.

Advertising is not permitted in Profile Pictures or Groups.
