As many of you will have noticed, there hasn't been an activity check in quite a while. We've been trying to handle it on a case by case basis, but activity has reached a point where there are too many little problems to handle it that way. Site activity is taking hits, so we are going to be doing another activity check to try and get some things in check. We have also decided we are going to do things a little bit differently this go around.
<b><u>MAIN CANONS</b></u> will be required to link two posts. This includes anyone from a major house (Stark, Tully, Arryn, Lannister, Targaryen, Baratheon, Tyrell, Martell - even noble bastards of those houses). We will require one post from last week (11.29 - 12.05), and one post from the week before (11.22- 11.28). I realize that this will require more work and I apologize for that. If one thread has two posts in those time frames, you need only give us one link. Post the link and the date of your posts in that given thread.
<b><u>MINOR CANONS / OC</u></b> will be required to follow the same criteria as ever. This includes all originals, and members of any other house. We require a link from one post in the past week (11.29 - 12.05).
If something has been going on and you haven't been around much, we will also accept a link to an absence notice that you posted previously. Exceptions will also be made if you link us to an application currently being worked on.
We do realize that this is a busy time of year, and we know everyone has been having a lot going on. But none of us want to see the site go under because of it. So we are going to be cracking down on a few activity rules this week. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to PM either myself or Shelbs and we'll try and help as best we can.
<b><u>UNSAFE LIST</b></u> If you have a character that is not safe, and you would like them to be, you are welcome to post a comment explaining your reasoning behind saving them. For example, some characters are in a region that is not very populated. Some members post a ton over a couple days but then don't post again for a week or two. Or if you have a plot in the works to get them more active, we are more likely to work with you. If a minor canon is posted during the week of the AC, we will save them, and we ask that you just be aware of their activity in the future. Major canons will need a far better reasoning behind inactivity.
This really isn't meant to be a mean thing, and nobody wants to just go and mass delete. We love you all and all of your characters. We are just hoping people will stop and consider the activity they are managing at present, before making new characters.
