Preferred Posting Style

Post by shai-hulud » Wed Nov 29, 2006 11:09 am

Everyone has their own style for posting, but to keep things a little less confusing, here are some guidelines that will keep the posts relatively uniform.

It is not always necessary to display what your character is thinking. It gives the other players insight into his thoughts and may affect how they deal with him. If you do decide to post a character's thoughts, let's stick to how beltzclan is doing it. Put the thoughts in italics: tag.

For speech, it is usually simplest to just put quotes around what your character is saying. This way, you can use italics within the quotation or bold font to indicate emphasis.

For out of character remarks, lets use
OUT OF CHARACTER
... This will not actually display in a different format, but text that looks like this:
[OOC]I love noodles

 

clearly marks off out of character remarks.

By sticking to simple format, the posts will be easy to read and the uniformity will make it easy to understand what each post means.

By the way, you can use additional formatting for additional uses. For instance, if your character is angry, red text might make his words all the more fiery. Similarly, if he is bubblingly happy, perhaps yellow text will indicate his sunny disposition.. Yelling could be accomplished with the tag!.
