      by Rohan @ 3rd Apr 2014, 8:23 am + 0 Comments
      The Community Rules have been modified.

      - Updated Site Rating & Mature Content section - clarifications and expansion.

      • Player characters (PCs) must be at least 15 years or older
        Effective as of 4/3/14, we will no longer accept any player characters under the age of 15 (including racial equivalents). If you would like to create a non-player character (NPC) at the age of 14 or younger, please contact a staff member and petition your concept or reason. Though you are permitted to create a 15 or 16 year old character, we do not tolerate them being involved in any scenes that include sexual content.

      • Sexual content with PCs or NPCs under the age of 17 is not tolerated
        Please be aware that although we offer a free license of creativity for our members that we do not tolerate roleplays that involve sexual scenarios involving underage (17 years old or younger) characters whether they are player characters (PCs) or non-player characters (NPCs). Mention of or participation of sexual scenarios may only involve characters 18 years or older, no exceptions.

      By extension, the Character Restrictions has been updated.

      Thread Evaluation Rewards

      by Rohan @ 25th Mar 2014, 2:21 pm + 4 Comments
      Due to a number of concerns with the existing system of rewards using the Thread Evaluation shop (where players received a flat 50xp per thread), we have implemented a new system that we believe is a compromise for players of all writing styles, using a bracket system on a flat rate. All thread evaluations requested before 3/25 will be rewarded using the old system while any new evaluation rewards will be distributed using the new system, detailed below -

      The reward for thread evaluation is determined by the combined thread word count (seen to the right of the thread title, next to the number of posts in a thread). There is a flat rate of 20xp per 1,000 words of a thread - this includes all of the posts of a thread, not a particular individual, unless it is a solo roleplay. Staff may use their discretion to modify the rewards given to a thread if they believe it to be "fluffed", or include large amounts of unnecessary text or copy/pasting to meet the next reward bracket.

      XPTotal Thread Word Count
      20xp0 - 1,999 words
      40xp2,000 words - 2,999 words
      60xp3,000 words - 3,999 words
      ...Etcetera, flat rate accruement

      Please keep in mind that we are still in a beta stage of development and that this system has the potential to change. We will see how it goes, but I am confident that this is a more solid solution to the issues that have been addressed to me.

      Tur does not have a minimum word requirement and it never will.

        Thanks,
        Roh
