Welcome to the Permanent Activity Check. Please follow the instructions below to proceed:
HOW TO TITLE YOUR POST EACH MONTH
♦ Post the subject as follows: CURRENT MONTH (YEAR) | NEUTRAL/FOG/FOURTH | TOTAL COINS EARNED THIS MONTH (not your cumulative total).
Example: MARCH 2016 | FOG | 3 COINS
♦ If you take a hiatus make sure you mark HIATUS instead, or STRIKE, if you wish to take an activity strike.
EXAMPLE: MARCH 2016 | FOG | 0 COINS | HIATUS
EXAMPLE: MARCH 2016 | FOG | 0 COINS | STRIKE
♦ Use the form below and see the example below. PLEASE DO NOT MODIFY THE FORM. If the form is not used, we will ask you to modify your AC.
FOR YOUR MAIN ACTIVITY CHECK
♦ Main Activity each month is 20 comments from YOUR character.
♦ The posts must come from the MAIN (LOG) or NETWORK communities, or a character's PERSONAL MAILBOX.
♦ These must come from at least TWO different posts (so Log A and Network Post B, not Log A with Character 1 and Log A with Character 2).
♦ These posts must have at minimum TWO different characters. You cannot make all of your main activity threading against just one character!
♦ You can have up to 5 threads for your main activity to get to 20 comments total.
♦ All threads submitted for activity must have at least THREE comments from you.
♦ The exception to this is if you began a thread, log or post with your character. In that case, you need to LINK TO THE ENTIRE POST OR TOP-LEVEL COMMENT and you can count all your replies, as well as the post itself (provided there is a starter or prompt).
♦ Mention all the characters present in a post if there are more than one. Do not link to a thread and just say "NETWORK POST", write "NETWORK POST POST WITH CHARACTER A, B, C, D, E, ETC".
♦ Remember that you do not need to hit 20 comments exactly, or even closely -- anything exceeding this can be carried over into your bonus activity.
♦ Threads used for Main AC need to have been started between the start and end date specified in that month's Activity Check post (for example, March might allow posts from Feburary 25th to April 5th)
BONUS ACTIVITY CHECK
♦ For EVERY 10 COMMENTS YOU GO OVER THE MINIMUM ACTIVITY REQUIREMENTS
, your character will receive a bonus coin.
♦ You can have a maximum of 20
bonus coins. Even if you have more than 200 comments, you cannot go over 20 coins total, UNLESS there is a bonus event that is clearly marked (bonus coins for an event, etc).
♦ This coin is represented in game as a copper coin emblazoned with something analogous to what they turn into (wolves and bears for weres, bats for vampires, stags for wendigos, devils for demons, etc.)
♦ These coins can be used to purchases services, spells, items, bonus powers and even change monster forms from MANA
a little later during the month.
♦ All threads submitted for bonus activity must have at least THREE
comments from you.
♦ In addition to threads that qualify for main AC, bonus AC threads may consist of the following:
♦ Continued threads that were started in any previous month, but make sure to count the replies you did WITHIN THIS MONTH ONLY.
♦ Replies in the test drive meme to potential players with your character, for a maximum of 6 COINS.
♦ Replies in the smut/adult community, for a maximum of 4 COINS . Note that the logs presented MUST BE CANON IN RYSLIG'S STORY LINE (Please no meme replies or AU/What-if Scenarios).
IF YOU NEED TO TAKE A HIATUS OR A STRIKE
♦ Make sure to post your hiatus on the HIATUS PAGE
, then link to your Hiatus in your Activity Check post!
♦ You must hiatus for at least TWO WEEKS
of a given month to gain an Activity Check exception, and you can't pass Activity Check with hiatus two months in a row!
♦ There are no additional posting requirements for taking a strike (no double activity during the next month), but you CANNOT
go on Hiatus if you are on strike warning!
IDLING OUT OF THE GAME
♦ We understand that sometimes real life concerns lead to failing Activity Check. However, dropping takes less than a minute so please fill out the DROP FORM
if you intend to leave the game.
♦ If you are removed during an activity check and failed to drop from the game, you will not be allowed to apply for a new character for ONE
application cycle, and cannot re-apply for the same character you idled out with for TWO
♦ If you ended up idling out due to a justifiable emergency, please message us and we can discuss it with you!
♦ If you end up idling out more than once, there will be heavier sanctions that the mods will discuss with you in private.
ACTIVITY CHECK WARNING POST INFO
♦ At the end of the Activity Check period, we will tally all users who have not responded, or have made mistakes during their activity check.
♦ The first post will be a warning list. Failure to respond if there are issues with your Main Activity will count as idling out. Failure to modify your Bonus Activity due to mistakes means you will lose your bonus coins.
♦ The activity check posts can always be found in the OOC COMMUNITY
. We will also crosspost this notice to plurk: ryslig
CONGRATULATIONS, YOU PASSED!
♦ AN ACTIVITY CHECK COMMENT IS FROZEN AFTER PASSING. This helps us keep track, makes sure comments are not modified after passing, and tells you that you completed it correctly.
