<div id="Rules" class="w3-container w3-border city">
<h2>Rules</h2>
<p>
The following is the Legacy Wrestling Alliance Handbook outlining the rules and regulations when playing the game.
<p>
The rules are subject to change at any time without warning and it is the responsibility of each player to re-familiarise themselves with the most up to date rules regularly, to be as informed as possible. In addition, all rules are at the discretion of the Admin Team. For more information please contact a member of the Admin Team.
</p>
</div>
<div id="Characters" class="w3-container w3-border city">
<h2>Characters</h2>
<p>
<font color="blue">CHARACTER SELECTION</font><p>
<b>REAL TALENT:</b> We allow all talent listed on the Vacant Roster, however if you wish to play a real talent that is not listed, this will be fine too, we only list the most common/most famous stars and add others as we go along.
<p>
<b>CAWs:</b> Created wrestlers are allowed in the fed! CAW's, however, must be original creations. And yes we do allow caws and reals to use the same picture base.
<p>
<b>TAG TEAMS AND FACTIONS:</b> We also allow a single player to join the game as a tag team and you are more than welcome to make up tag teams of stars that have never teamed together in real life but they must be approved by a member of the Admin Team first, either via PM or in the Guest Reception Lounge, as we would still like to keep the realism barrier there. Don't be afraid to ask or enquire though, we just need a safe guard there to avoid very unrealistic teams. You are also, as a single player, allowed to portray a full faction, such as the The Shield or The Wyatt Family. The mix and match, making of originals factions, is allowed but again must be approved by a member of the Admin Team and may not hold any bolded Superstar from the Vacant Roster, unless prior permission is obtained. If you sign up as a tag team or faction, you will only ever have to write one roleplay, like any other single player on the roster, however one single roleplay may cover more than one match for a faction if more than one of the members is booked on the card. Factions may not exceed six members (excluding non-wrestling managers) unless prior permission is granted by a member of the Admin Team. Please also be aware that even though your faction (when various players are involved) may initially form in a general roleplay, they MUST formally form during a show results to be accepted formally and be used in match RPs. Contact your respective GM about this. The same principle goes for adding a new member or the dissolution of the faction. Please note that we have the right to deny factions such as Nexus, nWo, DX, Evolution etc. from forming, especially if it's completely new characters involved. Try and be original. It's also worth noting that when proposing to play a faction, it is at the sole staff member's discretion whether it will be accepted or not or whether all proposed members will be accepted.
<p>
<b>MANAGERS:</b> To claim a manager for a character, the player must first get permission. If requesting to use a manager that is also listed on the Vacant Roster as an active competitor, it is up to the Admin Team and their discretion whether they are struck off so nobody can sign up as them. If this is denied, should a new player sign up as that talent, they get priority over the play wanting to use them as a manager. Staff reserve the right to decline any manager they don't feel works with creative at that time. New players should prove they are here to stay over a few matches before requesting a manager.
<p>
<b>CHANGING CHARACTER:</b> Typically, we allow character changes anytime, provided the character in question is not in a storyline however permission must be granted by the respective GM or a member of the Admin team on when a change may happen. You may be asked to keep the character until a storyline/scheduled match on PPV has been wrapped up.
<p>
<b>CHARACTER NUMBER:</b> You may apply for up four max characters here in Legacy Wrestling Alliance
<p>
<b>THEME MUSIC CHOICE:</b> As a general rule; real talents may only use entrance music they have used in real life. The only exceptions to this rule would be where they have ONLY used a faction entrance music (such as Nexus, The Shield etc) or they are have never competed within WWE or TNA. To use a remix of a theme that has never been used in real life, you must obtain permission from a member of the Admin Team first. CAWs are permitted to use any entrance music provided it hasn't been used by a real talent and is also not used or has been used as a television theme; i.e: "Burn It To The Ground" by Nickelback.
<p>
<b>THEME MUSIC AND FACE CLAIM CHANGES:</b> If a Superstar has been in WWE but then goes to TNA or elsewhere the most recent WWE theme music must still be used. If a Superstar has been in TNA but not WWE, the most recent TNA theme music must be used, an independent theme music won't be allowed. Because of this, only CAW theme music will be listed on the theme music page. The only exception to the rule will be if a different gimmick is used and the current theme music doesn't fit. Eg: Cody Rhodes. The Admins will have the final say on if an exemption is allowed. CAW face claims may be changed at any time by replying to the Taken CAW Face Claims thread with the new information. Remember, we don't allow face claims to be wrestlers or wrestling related personalities.
<p>
<font color="blue">ACCOUNT PERSONALISATION</font><p>

<b>SIGNATURES:</b> You may have no more than two signatures. Nudity/sexual images in signatures is not permitted and they may not stretch the page (as a general rule no wider than 500 and no bigger than 320 height wise).
<p>
<b>MUSIC PLAYERS:</b> You may have a music player/bar, but it must not be set to autoplay. Full YouTube videos are not allowed, and they must be set to be a music bar only if used (set the height option to 25).
<p>
<b>DROPDOWN BARS/MISC.:</b> You may also have as many drop down bars as you wish. It is important to note your signature area may NOT stretch the page because it is too wide and as already stipulated within the signature section; no inappropriate quotes, text, bars etc. We reserve the right to edit your signature to comply with the Handbook.

</p>
</div>
<div id="Activity" class="w3-container w3-border city">
<h2>ACTIVITY</h2>
<p>
<b>BOARD ACTIVITY:</b> Any account (ie. not on Leave of Absence, Alumni etc.) that has not been online for a period of 3 days or more may be deactivated without warning, or the character/s may be allowed to be taken by somebody else. If you think you will be away for more than 3 days, you should post in the Leave of Absence section to keep your account/s safe. Please keep in mind that you should be active with all the characters you play and neither should appear inactive. If we feel you're not being as active as we'd like (no inactivity over 3 days) with some characters, we may warn you or take them away.
<p>
<b>NIGHTS OFF:</b> There may be a week where roleplaying for a match just is not possible for you and we understand that. That's why you can request not to be booked for a certain card. This is not really taking a LOA but should you wish to do this, you should post your request in the Nights Off section of the board. If you post a quite early notice ahead of time for a night off or LOA, please be sure to remind your respective show staff before the cards of the show you will not be able to roleplay for, they're only human, and things can be missed/forgotten. Don't ask for a night off if you recently no showed a match because you probably won't get it.
</p>
</div>

<div id="Matches" class="w3-container w3-border city">
<h2>MATCHES</h2>
<p>
<b>NO SHOWING:</b> No showing (failing to post a roleplay before the set deadline) will not be tolerated in most cases and action taken following such an act lays at the discretion of the Admin Team. Ordinarily, no showing shall mean deactivation of your account, unless we have reason to believe you have or will have a reasonable explanation. When you can't post a full roleplay for whatever reason, rather than no show the correct thing to do is to post a minimum of 500 words. If you know you're going to miss the deadline, and it really is unavoidable, the correct thing to do is to PM a member of the Admin Team, as well as your GM, BEFORE the deadline, or close to it as possible, and they may grant permission to PM your roleplay a little later, though it will not count in the judging process. If your account has been deactivated through no showing and you try to return to the game, you may still be asked to provide your roleplay to be re-accepted.
<p>
<b>LATE ROLEPLAYS:</b> Whether late roleplays are accepted or not is at the sole discretion of the assigned match judge. They will usually not count in the judging process, so be on time. If you do miss the deadline and did write up a roleplay, please PM the roleplay in coded tags (so we can post it with code intact) to your GM ASAP to avoid being treated as a no show.
<p>
<b>WORD LIMITS:</b> You are only permitted to submit one roleplay per match, per a character depending how many characters you might be handling at the moment.
<p>
<b>MAKING EDITS:</b> Often a roleplay may have a mistake or number of mistakes in that you would like to take out and this is fine. All players are granted 15 minutes (so long as it is still within the roleplay deadline) to edit mistakes and errors. Editing after this fifteen minutes, provided there are other roleplays posted afterwards, may mean being disqualified from the match. This does not mean that so long as nobody else has posted an edit can be made anytime, it just means the judge may be more lenient. Also the edit rule is for coding mistakes and errors only, new roleplay parts may NOT be added. Adding new parts shall mean automatic disqualification. We do have access to post edit logs to check this if we feel there is foul play.
<p>
<b>REMATCHES:</b> There is no "rematch clause" when it comes to losing a championship or other important match. Show staff may grant a rematch, but they are not obligated to do so.

</p>
</div>

<div id="Judging" class="w3-container w3-border city">
<h2>Judging Process</h2>
<p>
<b>HOW IT WORKS:</b> In free-for-all matches, i.e: there will only be one winner (singles, triple threat, battle royal etc) the best roleplay of all submitted is the one which dictates the winner. In tag team matches, as long as there are an equal amount of players in each team, it is a team effort. Overall, the team the judge feel have the better joint effort will win the match. This doesn't mean because your partner no shows you have no chance however, quality > quantity and one great roleplay can defeat two not so great roleplays, it's happened. In larger tag team bouts (6-person and above) the roleplays are ranked in order from best to worst by the judge and whichever team gets the most roleplays into the top 3 or 5, wins it. In handicap situations, or situations where there are an unequal number of players per team, the best roleplay overall will win the match for their side; i.e: a handicap match or two players facing one player portraying a tag team.
<p>
<b>DISAGREEING WITH DECISIONS:</b> Please have faith in the judging team when it comes to match decisions. The only people biased to your work on the fed is you. Our judges have probably read more roleplays than you've written so they're certainly not inexperienced. However, if you lose a match and you are unhappy with the decision, please do not moan and be angry about it in the Cbox or on the forum whatsoever. Kindly request official roleplay feedback from the respective show staff. If after this you continue to create a negative atmosphere surrounding the loss, you may be suspended or banned. We are a completely fair efed and for nearly seven years now the best roleplay has won every single match and it will remain that way. If you have an ego, leave it at the door because we won't hesitate to bring down the ban hammer to those who can't take a loss.

</p>
</div>

<div id="RP" class="w3-container w3-border city">
<h2>RP Content</h2>
<p>
<b>WHAT TO AVOID:</b> Roleplays should not contain highly sexual, offensive or overly violent scenes. Profanity (swearing) is allowed but please only use it in moderation and in fitting scenes with fitting characters, it shouldn't be all over the place. Your roleplay should be your own work and not copied in whole or part from somebody else or any of your past roleplays.
<p>
<b>RELEVANCE:</b> Having relevance in all your scenes is extremely important and lack of relevance can easily cost you a match win. Relevance is about creating scenes or a story within your roleplays which connect in some way to your match, feud, storyline, opponents or even mental or physical state. Market your match to be as exciting as possible to the LWA Universe. Originality is highly welcomed and it's always great to see stand out scenes but they must also be relevant. If you're ever unsure how relevant you're being, do request official feedback when you can.
<p>
<b>USING OTHER CHARACTERS:</b> Players may not use any character in their roleplays without permission from the respective handler, whether a physical altercation is involved or not. This is to allow for maximum creative freedom. Abuse of this rule may result in the player in question being stripped of the ability to use characters without permission.
<p>
<b>FORMAT & CODING:</b> All roleplays you submit should be posted on the board (no links) and colour coded in some form. This includes intro/sample roleplays within applications. In addition, roleplays should be readable so no difficult to read font colours, sizes or styles. If your roleplay is difficult to read, the judge reserves the right to skip over it.
<p>
<b>NUMBER:</b> You are only permitted to submit one roleplay per match. If you post others they shall not be counted in the judging process.
<p>
<b>GENERAL ROLEPLAYS:</b> It is highly frowned upon to "gate crash" a general roleplay. This means responding to a roleplay with a "TBC By So and So" tag when you are not the expected person to respond.
<p>
<b>WHEN ON LEAVE OF ABSENCE:</b> If you are on LOA, participating in general roleplays is not allowed unless you have declared your LOA has ended but you are simply waiting for your member grouping to be changed. Tweeting and character communications are allowed provided it's not in excessive amounts.

</p>
</div>

<div id="SG" class="w3-container w3-border city">
<h2>Segments</h2>
<p>
<b>MEMBER SEGMENTS INVOLVEMENT:</b>This is something is very important to our site. We would like for you to get in involved in segments, not with you, turning in the work.'We want you to get involved working with other good members here on site. I know at the end of 'the day. That' why everybody is here on LWA; year after year. Giving it you're very best, week after week. We are going to make it happen for all of you! This is 'going to be a team effort working together as a Team. I know we are expecting the same people to turn in the work. I believe each week we will have different segments turn in by all sorts of Superstars and Divas from you. “Last, but not least.' I don't know about all of you.... I can defiantly "Speak, for myself".And, Along with the rest of the staff. The Game has changed. Starting today, turning in the work for your characters to be placed in the results on Friday Night Dynasty because, it's now a requirement for you to do your job playing your characters on screen. With that being said, Welcome to the real world Folks, welcome to the Legacy Wrestling Alliance!"
<p>

<b>SEGMENTS REVIEWED:</b> Any segments you send over first, it will be review by the general manager.If it makes sense it will be added to the Results. The general manager can refuse to use a segment for the results if it don't make any sense for him to use it for Friday Night Dynasty.
<p>

<b>SEGMENTS KEEP IT REAL:</b> Please try and keep your segments to the point. Remember this is supposed to be TELEVISION we're watching the LWA! Actions between words are of course needed, but two paragraphs worth of inflection and back story between speeches is not, as we wouldn’t get this in reality watching WWE Monday Night RAW.

</p>
</div>


<div id="Bye" class="w3-container w3-border city" style="display:none">
<h2>Leaving The Game</h2>
<p>
<b>LEAVE OF ABSENCE:</b> Any player who has been a member of the game for two PPVs or less is, unfortunately, not entitled to a Leave of Absence. Any player who has been a member of the game for more than two PPV matches is entitled a maximum of two months LOA. It must be stressed that any player who has a character which is a champion and takes a LOA may have their championship taken away should the LOA period be so long that it hinders their respective show. You may be refused a LOA if you no show a match and THEN request a LOA. In such an instance, you may be required to roleplay one final match to rectify the no show and then be granted LOA status, or not at all, depending on the circumstances.
<p>
<b>EXTENDED LEAVE OF ABSENCE:</b> Any player who has been a member for two and a half years or more is entitled to ask (via PM only) for an extended LOA that allows them to be away for longer than the regular LOA would allow. This is NOT a right, it is a privilege and the Admin Team will make decisions on a case by case basis taking into account track record, estimated time away and popularity of the character.
<p>
<b>LOA NOTE:</b> Leave of Absence is not only at the Admin Team's discretion when you take it but also during your LOA as well. If we feel you're taking liberties (ie. online as usual, talking in the Cbox a lot etc), and unless you have LOA'ed a character for reasons not relating to being away and unable to RP (ie: taking a break from that character) we may terminate the LOA. The keyword in Leave of Absence is Absence. Failing to return from a LOA will result in deletion or alumni if appropriate. Be aware, LOA being granted is not guaranteed even if you fulfil the eight match requirement. If your track record or OOC conduct isn't up to scratch, don't be surprised to see your request refused.
<p>
<b>ALUMNI:</b> Alumni is a status that allows a player to remain a member of the forum despite not participating as an active player. If granted, CAWs retain their original account name whereby those who have played a real talent shall be granted a new OOC account for them to continue to have access to the board when their character accounts are deactivated. Unlike Extended LOA, Alumni does not expire after a period of time and is for players who don't intend to return to actively participate or their absence cannot be covered by LOA. Players shouldn't ask for this status to be granted, the Admin Team will judge each opportunity on a case by case basis however we like to see 1 year minimum of dedication for all we consider for alumni.
</div>

<div id="OOC" class="w3-container w3-border city" style="display:none">
<h2>Out Of Character Conduct</h2>
<p>
<b>RESPECT AND ATTITUDE:</b> All out of character postings, whether on the forum, Cbox or through PMs, should carry an appropriate amount of respect. We do not and shall not tolerate OOC wars or discrimination of any kind including the harassment of another member regarding but not limited to their; gender, race, age, sexual orientation, roleplay skill level, religion or any other reason. Bullying is not allowed whatsoever. If you feel bullied, you should contact a member of the Admin Team. In addition, no member may post pornographic, violent or otherwise illegal, highly offensive material or material deemed highly inappropriate to those under the age of 16 years old.
<p>
<b>SENSITIVE INFORMATION:</b> Please do not post (or ask for) sensitive information on forum topics such as email addresses, instant messenger ID's etc. We don't allow sensitive information on the forum itself as it'll always be there and you never know who's going to get your information, we have your safety and best interests in mind. Any topics compromising this rule shall be deleted.
<p>
<b>ADVERTISING:</b> Advertising other efeds on the forum, in the Cbox, through PMs or instant messenger will result in IP address banning without question. Don't do it. Please be advised if you fail to report advertising and keep it covered up for whatever reason, we will take action against you. We don't want, nor need, unloyal members.

<b><font size=3><font color=#327484>Intro</font></font><br /></b>
I've been wanting to make this for a while… I always hate asking for help, so I figured what if I created a template that had all the info I wish to all get out that I could have had. A reference. Somethin' to say. What are people exactly lookin' for in a Roleplay b/c I had never written one before in my life. I hated the fact I had to ask questions how do I get better. What should I do to improve this? I had to ask Questions, which I hated. I've helped people develop a Roleplay before. I've also, helped people work on Roleplaying. This is the tips and guidelines I tend to follow, and what I tell people. These are what I learned along the way. You do not under any circumstance have to follow this. It's not Rules or anything like that this is simply a guide. It's not something you have to follow either. Like I said it's something to help. I would love for people to reply to this and add their experiences or what they use to help write or when they judge a roleplay what type of criteria do you use, that sort of thing. I hope this helps, if not that's perfectly fine.
<br /><br />

<b><font size=3><font color=#327484>Finding the Focus</font></font><br /></b>
For me, it depends on what I want to write if I have enough time. I'll write out an Outline. Scene 1 is gonna have a Radio Interview / Scene 2: Lunch w/ the Loved one / Scene 3: Out in the ring doing a promo. Somethin' as simple as that. What I do, is I'll watch a movie or have one in the background, can't just put on straight up music with three kids runnin' around. Somethin' that'll set the right mood I'm wanting to convey or somethin' that'll get me to typing. Somethin' that I really enjoy. I'll use the outline but hell if my fingers go a different route then that's fine too. I'll just keep typing not worrying about grammar or any of that. Or spelling for that matter. Start typing not lettin' the eyes do the typing. You can go back and add in or take out whatever you want at a later time or heck when you're coding… One of my favorite books for this is a boon entitled: <a href= <a href='http://www.amazon.com/Writing-Down-Bones-Freeing-Edition/dp/1590302613/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1382746134&sr=8-1&keywords=writing+down+the+bones>' rel='nofollow noopener' target='_blank'>http://www.amazon.com/Writing-Down-Bones-F...n+the+bones></a> Writing down the bones by: Natalie Goldberg </a>

<b><font size=3><font color=#327484>Give it your best shot</font></font><br /></b>
we want you to try your best. You don't have to be an expert, we're here to help another reason I am doing this or if you wanna PM one of the Staffers or somethin' like that. Participate in General RPs, because the more you RP the better the chances at earning a slot on the Championships. Better Writers (RPers) are better Opponents. Creates better storylines. Creates better feuds, and so forth.
<br /><br />


<b><font size=3><font color=#327484>Word Limit </font></font><br /></b>
A lot of other eFeds, have a roleplay limit now, because other handlers feel that they get discouraged and is overwhelmed by the amount of the other person's RP. Here we have a word minimum, it's an at least you can muster to come up with. A Word Limit to me hampers handlers. Say you get in good writing in the mix of telling a story or telling that person you personally cannot stand whatsoever and the words is just flowing. It just flows so damn well, you go back check the word limit. Oh wait… I'm gonna have to take this out. Leave this but this now won't make sense. I'm not doing that.
<br /><br />
I like having room to tell a story. Being able to express and let my fingertips do the talking, I don't wanna have to worry about wondering if this is gonna be enough. I enjoy challenging people by putting a word limit but it's not an all the time thing.
<br /><br />

<b><font size=3><font color=#327484>Quality over Quantity</font></font><br /></b>
This is friggin' redonkulous topic but I'll discuss it. A long RP will not mean that you automatically win. I once knew an RPer that would do no less than 5k, it was some obscene amount. It was crap. Had a great concept, but it was just words slapped together. A short RP can have the same amount of chance as a long one as long as it can stand on its own. Someone could have a very short, comedic type piece while the opponent could have a very long, dramatic piece. Either one could win. It's about the words just flowing magically.
<br /><br />


<b><font size=3><font color=#327484>Readibility</font></font><br /></b>
Again mostly everything on here is about readability. Being able to read a post and being able to comprehend.
<br /><br />

I've finished reading the Hunger Games, its in the 1st book, and there's a scene in there that has stuck with me. It's where the main star is not even talking, it's just in her thoughts. She's on the train, haven't had that much to eat all of her life and she's heading to the Capitol. They have some type of fish soup. I wouldn't touch it within an inch of my life. However, the way she describes it, actually had me thinkin' I wanted to try it. It described the texture, the temperature, the taste, and then it was so smooth and creamy down as she swallowed it.
<br /><br />

You have to be careful. Detailing it everywhere it gets to be too much. Detailing it every where, it can be too much. But every once in a while. I guess what I'm lookin' for is that , when doing a post you're telling a story. A story about your character. You're basically the puppet master, the audience reading is like they are watching what you have typed. Think about how you want to transport the audience. You want them engulfed so they are seeing what you want them to see. You're the one setting the stage and adding the color.
<br /><br />
For example I could say…<br />
The ball is rolling down the street.
<br /><br />
Okay so nothin' special about this ball goin' down the street whatever, right?<br />
But if I said,<br />
The big red ball is rolling down the slick wet street very very fast.
<br /><br />
That gives the reader somethin' else to work with.
<br /><br />
You are the one deciding what emotions you want them to feel. Is it your intention to make them laugh, make em' mad, it's all riding upon your shoulders… In school I was taught that a story has a beginning, middle the juicy yummy goodness center, the ending. The ending can be a cliffy or just rounding this out. Either is fine. Either way could land ya the win. Doing a balance of talking and non-talking moments. It always is a very good thing to have enough of both.
<br /><br />



<b><font size=3><font color=#327484>Comprehension</font></font><br /></b>
Do the research on your character. If your character won't ever be seen shopping, don't do it. Be mindful of your character, the storyline arc you're in, age, and there is a ton of that crap. Be sure to make the RP something easy to understand and read. Everyone is at different reading levels and different ages. What may appeal to you may not appear to someone else. I'm not saying what you need to write something to fit anyone's need but your own. For example, if you have a person like Randy Orton, in my opinion he makes a better heel in the ring. He's a family man in the back. So with that, finding the right balance. Can't have him goin' all mushified in the ring. Certainly, can't have him turn his nose up to his family and ignore that either.
<br /><br />


<b><font size=3><font color=#327484>Roleplay Media</font></font><br /></b>
You may post these but, only post: <br /><br />

1. 1 video per RP<br />
2. 1 Song per RP<br />
3. 1 Moving [.gif] per RP<br />
~ We do check RPs regularily. Who knows the type of penalty you'll recieve because of you not listening...
<br /><br />

<b><font size=3><font color=#327484> No Linking</font></font><br /></b>
Don't link your RP to another site or use a web layout. It's easier on everybody if we can read the RPs just right here. You can have links in your RP for a picture or youtube or somethin' like that. But do not under any circumstances have your RP @ another place and link it. We'll send a rabid bunnies after you.
<br /><br />

<b><font size=3><font color=#327484>Coding</font></font><br /></b>
I've read a lot of posts that were mono-colored there wasn't that break in the writing. Some of you believe that it should be about the post not making it look pretty. That it's about the fighting and that sort of thing. However, I disagree with that. Yes, it's about the Wrestling. But it's about being able to read the post. I don't give a rats ass if you have your character with one of the best pipe bombs ever seen, but if there's no color, my eyes get blurrified and there's no break of color. You can always request a template or graphic from <a href= <a href='http://fireandicestudios.b1.jcink.com/index.php?act=idx>' rel='nofollow noopener' target='_blank'>http://fireandicestudios.b1.jcink.com/index.php?act=idx></a> Fire and Ice Studios. </a> We do some amazing work that showcases a post and a cherry. We're sister sites so yea. That and well that's me Fire…
<br /><br />
However, if you don't want to use a template or somethin' like that then all we're asking is that you bold the names or add in a bit of color in names. Because my eyes will go crossways almost when it's simply one color. This breaks up the monotonous so the eyes don't become all blurrified. This way it's more breaking up the words and stuff... So yes, it goes back down to readability.
<br /><br />
Preferably every RP that you post, whether it's the Sample RP, General, or Match, it should be color coded in some form. Should be readable, if you are using a white background reserve from using pale colors. Remember the smaller the font the harder to read, also the font style must be readable. Must be in the English Language. If you are using another language please place the translation with it.
<br /><br />
For Example:<br />
<b><u><font color=red>Shawn Michaels // The Heartbreak Kid</b></u><br />
"Gracias José por toda la gran entrenamiento que me proporcionarán. Realmente aprecio su ayuda y sus enseñanzas."<br />
<i>(("Thank you Jose for all the great training you provided me with. I truly appreciate your help and your teachings.")) </i></font>
<br /><br />
**Keep in mind that if it's a Match Roleplay, and the RP is difficult to read for whatever reason, the judge(s) reserve the right to skip over it.
<br /><br />

***Allow yourself 30 minutes to 1 hour before posting the post for coding. This gives you that extra time in case of a mistake. <br /><br />


<br /><br />
<b><font size=3><font color=#327484>Somethin' different</font></font><br /></b>
I'm not a fan of reading the same post over and over again. If I want to do that then I'll just watch the same movie over and over. I want to see some variation. Something different. I understand if you've got a character that does very little change. Oh there's plenty to change. Trust me, changing what your character is doing it plays in the character development.
<br /><br />


<b><font size=3><font color=#327484>For the Match RP</font></font><br /></b>

<i>Here are two aspects that I look for when I am judging a match. We have 3 people judging matches, that's including myself. IF one of us has a match then we do not vote, either its down to the other two, or it falls down onto a Match Writer. This is what I tend to follow most of the time. The other two Staffers have their own criteria, this is just what I tend to follow… </i><br /><br />

<b><i>( 1 )<font color=#3c5c8a> Focus on Match.</font></b></i><br />
How much of the RP is focused on the match. Or about the opponent or both even. Sorry if it's just one line about it, then it probably wont get much on my end. For myself this is a count off against the RP. You're in a match, and there's not much about the opponent. Scenes that involve your character in different scenerios, in the ring, training somewhere, interview in or out of the ring, phone radio or tv host interview, hell fire somethin' backstage.
<br /><br />
Keep in mind you can't harm harm the other player's cherry unless you get expressed okayfrom that other player… If you want something along those lines in your role-play, contact and ask handler and if they have expressed permission to use your character please feel free and also notify staff. This way we know that you got that OK from the other handler.
<br /><br />
Address the match you're booked in into the RP, mention the other opponent. Also be sure to add whatever stipulation that there might be in the card. These are parts of the criteria we will be looking for when we judge your RP. Very Very important! Don't make up history for your opponent, you don't want someone messing around with your cherry so don't mess with theirs.
<br /><br />
<i><b> ( 2 )<font color=#3c5c8a> Character Development</font></i></b><br />
This has to do with outside of the ring. I want to see somethin' else. It can be just a conversation with a loved one. Or something to show a different aspect of your character. He may be the biggest heel in that ring, but on the outside, tell me about him is he still a jerk ball ass. Or, is he a teddy bear?
<br /><br />


<b><font size=3><font color=#327484>Summary</font></font><br /></b>
Do some type of coding to the post. Making sure the post is readable, not just slapping words together. Do your best, we accept all levels of Roleplayers and all types of posts too. Coding is important and being able to read the RP and understand what the Handler is trying to convey… <br />
