Alpha Rules:
1.) Common Sense: Use it. Common sense includes the following:

a.) Don't Be a Dick: No flaming, spamming, trolling, shameless advertising, or general rude behavior. This is a peaceful forum where people come to have fun and avoid stress, and we will keep it that way by force if we have to (with bans.) Be respectful towards the other members of the site and try to resolve any differences or disputes between yourselves before you come crying to the staff. We are all adults here. Oh, and no double-posting. Say what you have to say in one post, please, and wait for a reply before writing more.

b.) Type In English: In Alpha, unlike the non-roleplaying parts of the site, we have minimal spelling and grammar standards. We would suggest that you type in a text program or word processor first and use spell-check. It is not that hard, just press the little button and it fixes all your mistakes for you! Either that, or please try and proofread before you post. If you can't be bothered to do either of those things, you shouldn't be roleplaying, you lazy bastard. Oh, and internet-speak or abbreviations are not acceptable unless they are used in the context of a character quote. This is not the chat section.

2.) Specific Rules:

a.) Content Rating: If Alpha were a movie, it would be PG-13. Violence is okay, like stabbing, slicing, shooting, or otherwise causing harm to characters and creatures for the purposes of role-playing a story; what is NOT okay is brutal or graphic violence, like torture, rape, excessive blood and gore, and excessive or gruesome detail in describing violent acts. Sexual/romantic content is okay, like innuendo, romance, cuddling/kissing, and light or tasteful nudity for the purposes of role-playing a story; what is NOT okay is explicit nudity or descriptions of sexual acts.

b) Quality Standards: Besides common-sense spelling and grammar, the minimum standards in Alpha are equivalent to the advanced or veteran's roleplaying sections you may be familiar with on other roleplaying sites. You should make an effort to write at least one large paragraph of approximately 15 or MORE sentences, or several smaller ones. You should also advance the plot, develop your character, or say something meaningful and relevant in every post. Remember there is a level of QUALITY to be upheld here. Length is important but it should not be the most important. Quality over Quantity.

c) What Goes Here: Alpha is a roleplaying section. There is an Out-Of-Character (OOC) section put aside separately for you to plan your roleplays and discuss them. Don't do it in the Apha roleplaying section. There is also no chatting allowed in Alpha. Just roleplaying.

d) The Thread Author Is God: While the administrators of Creative Freedom do not impose any but the most basic and common-sense rules, thread authors are allowed to make up and enforce their own rules. These rules apply only to the threads they have created, so if you don't like them, just roleplay in another thread or make your own. Thread authors cannot make rules that conflict with the rules set forth by the administrators, however.
