GROUP RULES

Thu Aug 23, 2012, 8:47 PM by Lydia-Burns:iconlydia-burns:
Top Bird






We strive to make our group and chat room a place where everyone feels welcome. In order to do that, we have to enforce rules. We must make it clear that the rules were created with the input of members and the admin staff.


What to know before joining


:bulletblue: The group admins will make your RP account (which will start with "WDisneyRP-")
:bulletblue: Spelling and grammar are important since this is a text based RP
:bulletblue: Members should be active (when inactive for more than 4 weeks you will be kicked and must send a note to the group asking to rejoin. This also applies to the comment activity of the account.)
:bulletblue: OCs and non-members cannot interfere with RP activities or plot lines

Initial rules once you are a member


:bulletgreen: Don’t use RP accounts to join other RP groups as they belong to this group only. This rule also applies to joining other groups with the RP account as an admin, co-admin or contributor. Please use your main account if you want to help another group out in managing said group.
:bulletgreen: Don't set your RP account's online status to 'invisible.' We need to know how frequently you are active just in case we need to find a replacement RPer who is more active
:bulletgreen: After a month of group membership, you are allowed to apply for a second character. The only restriction is that your second choice can't be one that interacts a lot with your other character. (ie. You playing both Rapunzel and Flynn at the same time wouldn't work)
:bulletgreen: Once you have had your second character for a month (without switching), you may apply for a third character. Your third character also can't be one that interacts a lot with your other characters, since constantly RPing with yourself ruins the point of RPing with others.
:bulletgreen: Avoid any pop-culture references as they do not pertain to our characters (XBOX, Bronies, iPhone, etc.)
:bulletgreen: DO NOT delete your RP account. If you wish to leave the group, just send a note to the group explaining why (see FAQ for details)


Role playing as your character


:bulletblue: When developing your character beyond the movie, have them evolve REALISTICALLY. This will keep them close to their canon personality and avoid a forced fantasy which would become out of character.
:bulletblue: Preserve the magic. Stay in character at all times!
          :bulletgreen: Examples:
               -If your character doesn't do magic, they shouldn't suddenly become a master of it
               -If you are given a magical item, it shouldn't last more than two weeks as it will feel OOC
               -If your character is transformed by magic or put under a spell, it shouldn't last more than two weeks
               -If your character is a villain, they shouldn't become close friends with the heroes (unless it's part of an evil plan)
:bulletblue: If your character doesn't use profanity in their canon film or show, don't use it!
The only exception is if your character has used it in canon! (For example, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Judge Frollo says "damn" when referring to religion, like when he quothed "My soul will be damned if I give in to this desire." Lampwick called Pinocchio a "jackass" (animal-wise, before political correctness) when turning into a donkey.)
[DeviantArt FAQ #60: Do you allow "Adult," explicit sexual or pornographic content on DeviantArt? How about linking off site?]
[DeviantArt FAQ #3: Are there restrictions to comments?]

Interacting with other characters


:bulletgreen: Stay with your official couple (Mickey+Minnie, Perdita+Pongo, etc.) and please no non-canon pairings (All romantic relationships between two single characters must be approved by both parties AND admins)
:bulletgreen: Interact with others the way YOUR character would act
:bulletgreen: When sending in an application, use the codeword "Walt sent me" to prove that you have read through these rules thoroughly.
:bulletgreen: If you need to talk OOC (ex. To explain/plan RP or share something) keep it to a minimum or use private messages/notes. You can also use the OOC chat room.

Rules for uploading deviations, journals, and favoriting


:bulletblue: Treat your character's uploads the same as journals! They should be relevant to your character and prompt RPing between you and other members!
:bulletblue: Don't upload something JUST because it's Disney-related (ex. pictures of merchandise, etc.). It should be something that your character would post, and your character should have something to say about it!
:bulletblue: Only fave art that your character would be interested in! Should be either art of the character and their family and friends OR art that reflects their interests (i.e. Timon would fav pictures of bugs, him and Pumbaa, Simba, etc.)
:bulletblue: Please keep OOC journals to a minimum. If you feel the need to announce something important that is OOC, that's perfectly fine, as long as you don't do it very often. If possible, you can format the journal like this:
           -Write an IC journal entry as your character (you can even make it relate to your OOC comment!).
           -Then at the bottom of the journal entry, leave a brief OOC comment
           -Example: "Oh, my caballero Panchito just invited me to visit his home in Mexico for a week! I'm so excited!
                                   ((I'm going away for a week, see ya when I get back))"
           -Member Examples:  fav.me/d5vxf8v fav.me/d5rvorm fav.me/d5wb2dk
:bulletblue: No self-advertising please. If you want to advertise a group, account, or project, please don't do so on the RP accounts. You can send a private note to a few members but no more than that to avoid spamming everyone.
:bulletblue:Please do not upload any artwork that doesn't belong to you, especially if you don't have consent of the original artist! This is still deviantart we're roleplaying on and it's strictly against the site's rules to upload art that doesn't belong to you.
Not only is it rather disrespectful towards the original artist, it's also considered art theft and could get both your main account as well as your RP account in trouble with DA staff.
So just to be save please don't upload artwork that doesn't belong to you.

What can I upload as art on my RP account?

          - Your own character related artwork.

          - Character related photo's/screenshots.
       
          - Character related written pieces. (Be it as part of an character arc or something written as added information etc.)
           
          - Character related screenshot edits or photo edits.
       
          - Character related Dollmaker pictures.

(DA staff doesn't seem to be bothered much by the last two and it's not fanwork made by another artist.)

If you have uploaded artwork made by other artists, you'll be given a warning and two weeks to remove said artworks from your gallery.
If that has not happened by then, you'll be given an official warning before the staff removes the artworks.


(OC) ORIGINAL CHARACTERS AND NON-DISNEYRP ACCOUNTS


:bulletgreen: No non-canon/OC children. There have been issues in the past where members have neglected the canon Disney character they applied for and focused mainly on the OC babies.
:bulletgreen: No RPing with outside RP accounts; these accounts are for this group only

All members are expected to agree to our rules and to follow them. If you have any questions about these rules, please feel free to ask us. We would be happy to clarify.

If you start to push the limits, we will be forced to remind you of the rules or give you a warning. Three warnings and you're out.





Thank you,
your DisneyRP-Old-and-New admin staff

I really wanna apply for a certain character, I've found the code word, but I'm not sure what I should do in this RP-ing. (I'm quite new to this, sorry.)
Like, should I apply for a new account and password? Can I post some of my RP-Character related artwork I'd drawn myself on the Character's page that I'm RP-ing? Are RPs only in comments, or is there a chat room or something?

Mogwai1988 Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You can find a template of what you need to write in your RP application on our HOW TO JOIN page.
We do have several chatrooms in which our members can RP but roleplaying threads are mostly done trough comments and as a response to a RP starter journal.
So it's a matter of preference of which you want to use the most.
To get an idea of how this will look like and work, feel free to take a look at one of our member's pages and see where the responses are and such.
Please do note that the activity on an account is looked at. So when there's not reply being left within the time of 4 weeks, the account will be opened up.

You are allowed to post character related artwork on the character pages as long as it's kept below the mature rating.

Hey there!
No, the WDisneyRP Members are not encouraged to role-play with those outside of the group. If you would like to RP with our Flynn Rider, you could definitely go ahead and send in an application for a character that isn't already taken!
If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. :)

As stated in the last two lines of the Rules page, members of WDisneyRP aren't allowed to RP with accounts outside of this group due to drama in the past.

If you really want to start an RP with the RPers, I suggest asking them on their main account if they want to start an RP with you.

Hi, I just found this group after reading a fanfic on Fanfiction.com written by the two people who RP Tadashi and Hiro Hamada, and after reading the rules and everything, I think I'm interested in trying it out... but see, I'm very nervous. I've never RP'd anything before, and to be honest I'm just now figuring out how it works. It looks really fun, though, and I really wanna try. :3 I'm very inexperienced, but hey, there's a first time for everything, right?? :3 So yeah... I think I get how the application and everything works, so now I have a decision... Venelope Von Schweets, Fred from BH6 or Aunt Cass from BH6?? Hmm... Probably one of the last two... I"ll have to do some thinking. xD As far as personality goes, I'm probably either most like Fred or Venellope... xD Idk, I'll think about it. :3

Edit: I think I'm gonna go with Fred. :3 I do have a question, though: if a month passes and I decide I want another character, could I still get Aunt Cass, since she and Fred don't interact that much? I figured I could, I just want to make sure. :)

Mogwai1988 Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The group welcomes both new and experienced roleplayers.
So even if you just start out it should be no problem getting into roleplaying here.
Our members can leave you a starter or you can reply to one of theirs to get an RP started.

Besides that, if there's anything you find yourself struggling with, I'm sure our admins and probavly our members too, are able to help out.
I know they did when I started as a beginning RPer here and I'm pretty sure that hasn't changed.

To answer your other question. 
Yes. After a month you may apply for aunt Cass if you're playing Fred.
They don't depend on each other for key interaction so it's allowed.

Ok, thanks! :D I think I'm going to hold off on RP-ing for a while, simply because my life is probably going to get busier soon and I may not be able to be as active as I'd like (my sister-in-law is gonna have her baby any day now and I might be getting a job soon). But eventually I probably will. :)

Hello I was going to ask since I don't know if you'll let me; but please can I RP Evil Elsa? Do you know who she is? (if not I can explain) If I WAS Evil Elsa, I would be friends with Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Sven(maybe) and Olaf. I wouldn't hate Hans either. I would get along with most of the villains and annoy most of the others who aren't villains (eg Mickey Mouse). I really hope you can let me RP Evil Elsa! :)

:iconmogwai1988:
Mogwai1988 Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
We already have an Elsa and the group does not accept different versions of a character that aren't canon. This includes OCs and characters that didn't make it into the final movie.

This because the groups tries to keep the Disney Magic in the RPs, by having each player portray a character as in character as they can.

((The rule that says don't apply for a second character that interacts a lot with your first, does that basically mean that you can't rp two characters from the same movie?Derp )) 
Reply
:iconmogwai1988:
Mogwai1988 Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No it does not.
The rule only applies to characters that need to interact a lot with each other because of an established relationship in the movie.
Be it direct family, love interest, sidekick or enemy.

As Alice you can't apply for the Queen of Hearts for instance or Cheshire (since he is more of Alice's guide then anything else.)
Certain minor characters are allowed such as the Caterpillar or the March Hare, since they don't necessarily need to interact with Alice a whole lot.
Hatter on the other hand wouldn't be allowed to apply for the March Hare since those two character do interact a lot with each other.

If you are in need of a character that Alice interacts with a lot, but nobody has applied for them yet, feel free to use said character as a plot device every once in a while.
Taking charge of the needed character only when Alice isn't able to, or as a supporting character every so often when a plot requires it.

If you have any further questions please let us know.

That's right. You have to play your first character for at least a month until you can apply for a second character.
If you've played your second character for at least a month you may apply for a third one.

Can the character your roleplaying as develop a crush on someone, as long as the crush fades away after a while?

As long as the other roleplayer is alright with it, non-canon ships usually aren't a problem. However, you'd still need to send in a group note for permission.
