Creating an IC Thread! (Read ME!)
Creating an IC Thread


This sticky is created for the purpose of informing everyone of a few basic things that make threading here on BSC easier for everyone.

Please remember to create the thread in the -proper IC continent or locale-!

IC Prefixes!
Prefixes are the weird little things that occur before the Thread Subject entry. These are colored and can be used to tag threads appropriately for specific things! Here is a basic rundown of what they are and do:
    [EVENT] - This marks a thread an Event Thread, a thread focused on a specific turn of events for the Guild Storyline!
    [IC ANNOUNCEMENT] - IC Announcements are decrees, statements, or essentially warnings posted on the IN-Character faction networks. These are used to alert players to changes of various things that the Faction Leader or Officer wishes to state.
    [Letter] - This marks correspondence between IC characters!
    [INTERVIEW] - This marks an IC Intro or Interview being conducted over the forums. (We prefer to do these in-game).
    [Back-Dated] - This marks a thread that is set before the current guild storyline. Maybe be at any time before the current active roleplay.
    [CONTRACT] - These are threads posted in Faction Datachrons that relate to an active or completed Contract posted by a Prospect, Member, Officer, or Leader.

Dating and Time of the Thread
As of game launch we will be adopting the policy of -1 Day IG = 1 Day IRL-. This means the game's storyline will advanced roughly on the same time our IRL calendar advances. This makes dating events also much easier as we do not at the moment have to convert to a separate IC calendar.

When you create a new thread in the IC forums please use this format:
Thread Title [Month / Day, Year | Location | Participants]

Examples: The Floggin Sins [5/17, 1668 | Algoroc Valley | Cathal x Emrys and OPEN!]

Liquid Time
With the advancement being noted, we also practice what is known as "Liquid Time". This means events can occur before or after the current "IC DAY' for the game. This is why all threads -must be properly date-. This is even more so important when a thread is "Back-Dated".

Editing Existing Thread Titles
Editing an existing thread title you do two things.

1. Enter the thread and click full edit on the OP of your thread. Then go to the top and input the code we have above!

2. Enter the forum view (where all the threads are located) click and hold down on the thread link there. It should then turn into a little input box. This lets you edit the thread title right away. Edit it and then hit enter and everything is taken cared of!

Basic Etiquette
1) Posting order of the thread is generally established by when someone first posts their opening into the thread. This means if Jaybob is the OP and then Mary and John post after him. That is the current posting order for that thread.

Any additional characters joining the thread will then add. If Sue posts her OPENING on the second page after Mary, but before John, she is now added between those two in the order.

2) Before introducing new elements to the story (unless you are the OP) try to speak with those involved first. Any major changes to the goal or purpose of the scene at hand should be checked at all times with those involved.

3) If a thread is several pages in, and it is OPEN check with those involved if and how you can join in. If it is concluding you may want to join another thread instead. Or create a new thread related to the previous one, but further along in the story.

My Characters
Cathal Reily / Human Spellslinger / Malverine Boss
Fahari / Draken Stalker / Sovereign Enforcer
