    • Rules Change - Animated Gifs

      In a nutshell, you can animate your avatars now!
      Previously I've had the rule against animated avatars in place because many people (myself included) find them incredibly distracting when they're next to text that we're supposed to be reading. There are also accessibility concerns. However, as an admin, I prefer to empower rather than put restrictions on members. Therefore, I've found some scripts and written a couple of arguments to (hopefully) satisfy those who like animated avatars and those who don't.
      Essentially, if you do not like animated avatars, you do not need to do anything. All animated avatars for characters are frozen for you. You can play them by clicking on the avatar, click again to stop them. Mobile users will not see gif avatars.
      If you do like animated avatars, you need to go to your profile and click on edit profile. Click on the button that is next to Enable Gif Avatars to turn it green. Click save.
      If you want to use an animated avatar, you can add one in the regular avatar field as well as your rotator images. Just upload a static image in the static image field as that is what appears for mobiles. If you do not provide a static avatar your character's avatar will be the default image on mobiles. This is covered in the Upload and Add Avatar guide.
      Initially, I was hoping to find a reliable solution for anyone who struggles with a lot of animated images due to epilepsy or other conditions. The solution I have is a javascript and so you may see some animation before it loads. Due to this, I thought that it was better to recommend browser extensions for anyone who is motion sensitive.
      Without any experience with them, here are some options to try:
      Firefox - Superstop Firefox - change your settings  
      Chrome - Gif Jam Chrome - Animation Policy Opera - Chrome Extensions (add this extension to add the above solutions) Internet Explorer - change your settings Safari - none currently. Deanimator is an old extension that is still recommended.
      If you have any recommendations for gif blockers, please comment here and I will add them to the list!

    Roleplays here generally take place over one thread, though that thread can be hundreds of pages long. You can think of there being two types of roleplay:

    • 1:1 roleplays are for two people and the plot is typically contained to one thread. 1:1 RPs are a great way to make new RP friends or to just casually play with an idea!
    • Group roleplays are for more than two people! Found a group who wants to see the same plot unfold? Do a group thread!

    A thread that starts out with the idea of a 1:1 does not have to stay as a 1:1. you are welcome to invite more people to join.

    Persistent worlds are for role plays that have the potential to take place over several threads and can involve a number of different characters. They typically have the kind of breadth you might find in a forum that focuses exclusively on one 'world.'

      War, War Never Changes. In the year 2077 the world is ravaged by fire. In London, England, people were able to seek shelter in the vast underground networks beneath the city. Two hundred years later, civilization has emerged from the underground and slowly rebuilds in the ash and rubble. Factions have risen, each hoping to rebuild a world they've never truly known. Yet the emergence of the mysterious Super Mutants has become a threat to all progress and risks ending all life that remains in London.

      At the end of the Daeva Wars, the Daeva of Death was thrown from Maharaja, and the Hamadaeva overthrown. While the former survived, his dominion over the flow of life and death had ended, for whatever reason. A new daeva arose as the Hamadaeva, but he was not chosen to lead, spinning beautiful lies, sowing the seeds of discord, and splitting the daeva race down the middle, trapping them between their duties as a daeva, and their duty to their leader. The Light has appointed a new Daeva of Death. But he is not ready to ascend as a daeva, and the Light grows steadily weaker keeping the life-death cycle moving, a burden he was never meant to bear, until the next cycle overseer can ascend.
