Requesting Roleplays on Elliquiy
Guidelines, Manners, and Civility

If you have any questions, please contact a staff member for clarification.



If you are an Applicant...


Unapproved members are unable to post in the following Boards:
One and One/Solo Roleplays Wanted
Group Requests: GMs/Groups seeking Players
Group Requests: Players seeking GM/Groups

You must be an Approved Member to participate in roleplays containing adult content. If you wish to coordinate a non-adult roleplay with another Member or Applicant, please do so in the Non-Adult Roleplay Requests forum.

For more information about becoming an approved member, please read this sticky.

Members, please be sure to not post contact information in the above mentioned boards.


To Request Roleplays over IMs, IRC, and/or virtual tabletop...


For off-site roleplays taking place over an instant messenger, GoogleDocs, Skype, IRC, or another medium such as other forums, virtual tabletop (OpenRPG, etc.) please use the Non-Forum Roleplay Requests forum.

Notes: The Non-Forum Roleplay Requests is not visible to applicants and is the only board in the left hand column of Elliquiy where it is safe to post your contact information for RolePlay purposes.

Please be aware that the only two site-moderated off-site venues of RPing are Mumble and Elliquiy's IRC channels; use other mediums at your own risk.


Images In Posts


This area is PG13!

If an image displays genitalia, or a sexual act you must link to it and clearly tag or label it as not safe for work (nsfw) appropriately. Putting it in a spoiler tag is not sufficient.

All images must be adults of 18 or older. This includes photos, drawings, and CGI images.

Elliquiy staff reserves the right to request and enforce the removal of inappropriate images.


The Civility of Bumping


Here at Elliquiy, we frown on the bumping cultures often found on other RP sites. Bumping something to the top is more likely to get you skipped over than letting it stay in its natural space on the page. Every time you bump your thread you are unfairly forcing other members threads off the front page. The more you persist in such tactics the more your name becomes synonymous with poor manners.

Bumping is a disservice to yourself and to others. If you are having difficulty finding roleplays, feel free to ask for help in the Help! Forum.

We do, however, allow bumps of threads where there has been more than one month since the last substantive post. A substantive post is a post that introduces a new idea or plot of some sort to the thread.

Non-substantive posts made before the one-month limit will be deleted without warning.

Modifications that will be considered needless bumps include:
  • Bump.
  • Updated.
  • I have some free time.
  • Picture added.
  • Modified a profile.

When closing a request thread, please do so by editing the title of the first post. Making a new post to close a thread brings your post to the top of the forum just to say that it is no longer active, and pushes down threads that are still actively seeking partners.

Staff does not have much time to patrol the request boards, and if your post looks like a needless bump it will be deleted.

If we find that you are deleting your request thread and re-posting it, your thread will be locked, and you may lose your editing privileges for a time.

If you make more than two-such bumps in a row with no indication that anyone has taken any of your role-play ideas, staff may instead lock the thread or remove the bump and instead suggest that you rework your request thread first before bumping it again, in order to draw more attention to it. This is a service to you - allowing unreadable threads to be repeatedly bumped helps no one.

Modifications that will be considered substantive bumps:
  • Posting that a certain roleplay idea has been added. Please be sure to list the changes in the bumping post.
  • Answering questions in your thread.


How many threads may I have?


We recommend, for civility's sake, that you have no more than four active request threads per forum. If we find more than four threads on the opening page, staff may choose to lock or remove the oldest one.




Again, if you need something clarified, you should contact a staff member with your inquiry. :-)

Thank you for your time!

More, thank you for saving our time!

Mostly, thank you for the respect you show others when making requests.
