RATINGKeys to the Kingdom is rated PG-13 to stay in line with Proboards TOS. We do not want explicit sex scenes or bloody battle scenes regardless of whether it's on the boards or in chat box. Romance may include everything from holding hands to kissing, but you must fade-to-black if you want to go further. Battle scenes should work in the same way if they approach an inappropriate level of violence and gore; a smack here and there does not require fading-to-black. Please keep this in mind while roleplaying.
STAFFThe staff has the final word. We will work with everyone to fix problems that may crop up, and we will do our level best to be on top of things. Staff are to receive the respect they deserve. Staff positions may appear as more people join, and we will choose the new staff members based on either auditions and/or who we think deserve the position. The staff must have a separate account from their characters for admin work with their OOC (out of character) nickname.
RESPECTYou are to respect everyone: the staff, the members, the guests, and yourself. We are not savages here, and we can be polite even if it kills us. So help us achieve a friendly and fun community here.
ETIQUETTEBe a great and fun roleplayer, which means no spamming, god-modding, flaming, trolling, cybering, or hacking. There shall be no mary-sues or gary-stus. We will not accept them, for they are not fun.
PROFANITYYes, you may cuss in threads, but don’t have the character cussing every other word. You may not cuss outside of IC (in character) threads/boards. We do not want that language in the chat box or in OOC boards. A slip up every now and then is fine, but don’t make it a habit.
GUEST FRIENDLYSome boards are guest friendly as they are to assist guests. We have also set aside a section for advertising, and we will not allow advertising anywhere else. If someone advertises via pm, let the staff know, and we will handle it. We accept advertising from all sites, and we also accept affiliations. Please read the affiliation rules before applying.
ABSENCE NOTICEWe ask that you report when you’ll be away for more than two weeks. We do hold activity checks here every two months, and we do not want to delete someone’s account because they were on a family trip. Please do leave us a message when you expect to be gone for more than two weeks, and we will all try to work around that. We will also not touch any threads that your characters may be participating in.
