○Formatting Game Thread Posts○:
Commonly, Bold formatted letters are used to quote what other people said, italics for things being thought, or emphasized words in a sentence.
Also, DO NOT USE EMOTICONS IN IC POSTS. They do not convey the emotions of the character and wreck the cleanliness of the post. You may only use emoticons in OOC situations.
Posting pictures, maybe even videos/slideshows are OK insteed of telling it with words.
When posting pictures use only non copyrighted anime pictures. If you post copyrighted pictures have a disclaimer.
It is also basic etiquette that you write in correct spelling and grammar as much as possible. Failing to do so would usually have the consequence of another person misunderstanding your post completely.
Before you roleplay go into the Introduction forum
