I agree with the "welcome to cry wolf" thread idea. Even I'm still like "wait where's the thingy? And isn't that thingy somewhere else?". I know the links are around the board header, but I forget they exist most of the time.

Bro has a great list of things it needs. Plus, we already do the "everyone gloms onto the new players and make them feel welcome" forcing it would make me, at least, feel less inclined to play with new people, because, obviously, they already have assigned people.

Might be because I left RP for like 6ish years, but I always just... started. Sure I'll chat with people, and read the rules, look for things I do/don't like, and stuff, but I just started, reaching out to people as I could. I feel like most RPer's are more likely to do so.

Seconding what Bro said, adding in - please tag only either the character, or the OOC account, not both, because Parent and Sub Accounts are a thing.

OH YES! More:

. How to use the Shop
. What is a 'slot' and what does it mean?
. Words/Werds = posts, Muse= desire to make words
. Awards?


This, I think, will be in a separate shop guide. That I will eventually get to.

Missing links 'cause that's gonna take time and I'm running on fumes... Buuuut:

Welcome to Cry Wolf! This is (hopefully) a helpful guide in finding some of the odds and ends on site!

Starting Off: These are probably what you want to check first.
  • The Rules
  • The Plot
  • The FAQ
  • Character Rules

Creating a Character So, you want to join! Yay! Here’s some links to get you started!
  • Brush up on what the public knows about nonhumans
  • Consider a rank
  • Keep the limitations in mind
  • Check out the species
  • Want a female wolf?
  • Check the balance of the board!
  • Take a wanted, maybe?
  • Adoptables!

So you’ve got your character in mind! Now what?
  • Check to see if the face you want is available!
  • Fill out the bio!
  • Hit up the claims!

You’ve been approved! Hurray! Assuming you’ve already done the claims, now it’s time to thread!
  • Hit up shippers!
  • Start an open thread!
  • Play some games!
  • Check the shop!


This the sort of thing folks are looking for?

Well, you can tell by the way I use my walk, I'm a woman's man: no time to talk. Music loud and women warm, I've been kicked around since I was born.
