I. To register, click on "profile" to the bottom right of the cbox.
II. Match your cbox name with your ooc account's display name.
III. Alcryst is home to any and all, so please refrain from ignoring or excluding guests and members or forming cliques.
IV. No IC soliciation or advertisement.
V. It is impolite to pressure someone into posting if it seems to make them uncomfortable. Err on the side of caution whenever unsure.
VI. To let someone know you posted for them, please tag them in your thread so they receive proper notification, rather than alerting them each time with the cbox.
VII. If you feel ignored, do your best to involve yourself in the conversation. Should you still seem excluded despite your true efforts, message a staff member or use our Grievances board so we can help ensure this doesn't happen again, to you or anyone else. A friendly community is important to us! Don't worry, we will always be discreet and professional.
VIII. We are all friends and certainly want to share with one another, but please keep awkward topics to more appropriate areas, like Palaver, an instant messenger, or private messaging, whenever possible. Though there's no black-and-white description, such conversations may be overly personal, particularly dark or depressive, uncomfortably vulgar, clearly one-sided or unappreciated, highly controversial like religion or politics, combative, exclusive, or otherwise cause a sense of tension.
IX. If a guest or new member has a question, try to cite sources when answering (such as a link to an official thread) or let a staff member handle it. We don't want incorrect information passed along!
X. Should a troll or troublemaker post in the cbox, ignore them and promptly message a staff member so we can ban them. It's key that you don't respond to them! That just feeds the nasty little creatures.
XI. Don't ask a staff member to perform a staff task through the cbox. Task requests should be made through Invocation. Feel free to alert staff when you first post a new Invocation thread, though, as they might've missed it.
The golden rule is simple:
Treat everyone with the respect you desire.
Don't pester, pressure, or push...
And treat everyone with a smile. :)
I. You may post any Alcryst-related promotions in the adbox. This includes but is not limited to: plots, roleplay threads, IC or OOC contests/games, occupational services, wanted ads, shop sales, art/code requests/sales, herds, guilds, and anything else that requires other members to participate or view.
II. The adbox may only be used for advertisement. You may not respond in the adbox nor may you discuss its content in the cbox. Feel free to make use of threads and PMs to converse on the topic.
III. Advertisements must be posted by the account most logically related to them. For example, a stand sale would be posted by the merchant's account.
IV. There is a limit of 1 post per collective advertisement, meaning you have 256 characters to convey your message and may not continue onto a 2nd post. This includes links. Note: you can remove board/thread names from the end of Alcryst URLs and they will still function so long as the ID number is intact. For example, http://alcryst.forums.net/board/1 is a functioning link despite the removal of the board name.
V. The adbox shows up to 20 posts. There may only be 1 visible post advertising the same event at a time. Therefore, you may repost the same promotion once your original post expires. You may also delete and repost your advertisement, effectively bumping it to the top, once a week at most.
VI. To delete a post, click on the X to the far right of your post. To edit one, hover your cursor over your post and select the "edit" option that appears. Deleted posts disappear immediately without confirmation and are not retrievable. Edited posts say [edited] to the left of their timestamp.
VII.Classifieds contains a comprehensive list of what may be advertised as well as additional solicitation options.

Winter until ##/##/##
Winter has frosted Alcryst like the cold blush of a corpse, hardening every surface with frigid ice searing through the depths of its heart. The plants are lethargic and slow, the sky is desaturated and dull, and the wind is a violent gale ripping apart flesh and soil alike.

The register is a central hub that where you can sort your account into a specific group, modify your current group if you qualify for another, peruse Alcryst's present totals, and search for taken names. Any erroneous information should be reported immediately in Invocation.
Roleplayers must post here upon initial registration to be sorted into their group. Once sorted, they have access to the OOC boards and several unique profile fields.
Characters must post here after their biography is accepted to be sorted into their group. Once sorted, they have access to the IC boards and several unique profile fields.
If an account's current group no longer qualifies, you must re-fill out the newly-appropriate form for a proper update. For example, if a human gains a new occupation or a wild horse earns a different rank.
When posting for a group change rather than initial assignment, you must post as soon as possible after the change is finalized. For example, a wild horse switching to a tamed horse would occur after the official ownership paperwork is posted in Certification. Please avoid posting prematurely or with significant delay. It can be difficult to ensure your entries are fully updated, especially minute details such as age, but it is important for the records to be as accurate as possible. Thank you!
You must post with the account that needs modification.
All parts of every character's full name are considered exclusive unless the roleplayer allows otherwise. Explicit, public permission is required from the original creator.
Nicknames and titles are subject to protection on a case-by-case basis. If an unofficial name is protected, it will be listed in this register. Unofficial names are generally only considered when they are used IC more frequently than the true name, whether replacing it or supplementing it.
Though subjective, names are considered both their pronunciation and their spelling. For example, if the name "Defara" has already been claimed, a name with similar or identical pronunciation but different spelling, such as "Difaira" would be denied as it encroaches on the total entity of the protected name. These situations are judged on an individual basis.
Characters terminated through honorable means will remain listed in the register with a strike through their name to signify their death, keeping their names protected. Honorable termination would include the roleplayer retiring the character, choosing to kill them off, or their death transpiring IC.
Characters terminated through dishonorable means will be removed from the register, making their names available again. Dishonorable termination would include the member spontaneously deleting their account, the roleplayer/character being removed for inactivity, member/character removal for breaking rules, and other nefarious situations.
To reserve a name not yet associated with an accepted character, create a WIP biography in the appropriate Inception board, which will protect that name until it expires or is accepted and added to the list.
