▸ Please make one account per character. On this board we are going for an honesty policy, and you may link to each of your characters in a thread if you wish to do so. Please make the display name of the account the characters full name (first and last) in all caps. They will be changed to the correct class when they are accepted.
▸ Please try not to hound staff members about applications. If a few days have passed and your question or application has not been sorted out, you may gently remind an administrator via PM but please do not yell at them on the cbox. Asking multiple times or hinting that your app hasn't been seen to yet will only result in it being put to the back line. The "finished applications" notification thread is the place to let us know that you've completed your app. Use it well.
▸ Our forum has a rating of PG13+. This is in accordance to proboards terms and conditions and anyone found to be breaking this rating will be banned and deleted immediately. Please keep cussing and any talk that might be considered inappropriate to the barest minimum in the cboxes as Pokemon is a genre for all ages.
▸ From Triumph to Tragedy has a primary focus of spelling, grammar and punctuation. We do not have a minimum post count, but giving your post a quick once-over with a spell checker will never hurt. This being said, one-liners are rarely appreciated by a roleplay partner and we do encourage you to meet the level your partner is putting out. We do also allow burst threads, so feel free to post fast, snippet-length posts too. Heck, jump over to the contact board and have a chatplay. If we get enough demand, I'll bring back the IC box.
▸ Ask questions on the cbox or in the questions and suggestions forum. We're always going to listen if you have something to say, and are always willing to help out. Members are likely able to help too, so if they're around, feel free to ask them if an admin isn't.
▸ You may have as many characters as you wish, but don't neglect them! Characters are mind-babies who you should love and cherish, if you can't find muse for a character, why not consider putting them up for adoption to see if someone else would like to take over their role? This is especially important if you lose the muse for a character who has been involved in plot points.
▸ Though in the past we were not holding activity checks, we have since decided a bi-monthly 'check in' will be necessary. They will not require any posts to keep your character, but in the last week of each second month, we will hold a check in to keep people active and give people the chance to decide if they wish to keep all their characters.
