Topic: House Rules Suggestions and Discussion

Posting this following the suggestion here.

So far we've suggested something like:

1. "The GM will post approximately x times per week/month. Posts requiring GM response cannot be expected more frequently"

for sims where the GM anticipates being less active.

2. I've also recently added the following to my sims:

"Where possible, please try to keep OOC posts to the OOC thread. If you want to reference a particular IC post, please quote and copy it across from its IC thread to the OOC thread."

after the Simming League judges commented on the amount of OOC posts we have in some of our IC threads.

3. I also suggest something like:

"You do/do not need to have a character registered on this sim to post here OOC."

For clarity. Some SLs don't like outsiders posting in their sims, others don't mind. Probably some like it. Actually, I quite like it.

The House Rules Admin Policy can be found here.

4. If you post in a foreign language, please provide a translation.

Re: House Rules Suggestions and Discussion

Nice suggestions. I'd personally amend #4 to say, "... when appropriate." I often times have my Firefly characters swear in Mandarin, but it isn't really appropriate to translate (would make my mother blush).

Also, I'm updating this thread title Ash, since I'm not sure what "Houe Rules" are. wink

Right, I'm in agreement - though it is only a suggestion and SL's can modify it if they like. I did an intro with a character with some Arabic in the same fashion as with Mandarin in Firefly - it's flavor and it's meant to leave it to the reader's imagination, or if they're curious enough they can easily access things like translate.google.com the same way I retrieved the expression.

Perhaps this thread should be stickied for reference?

Hence the reason I stated, "I'd personally amend this..". Meaning, if I were to have that rule as SL, it's how I'd do it. My intention wasn't to state anyone with that rule should have it like that. smile

I'm going to encourage some of my SLs who still haven't posted House Rules to do so.

I read your post then looked at your avatar and an awkward mental image formed in my head. big_smile

Hmm, I thought the official template was in here. We should probably unsticky this and sticky a thread with the template so it's easy to grab and copy/paste into new sims.

I'll add a new topic.
