Elliquiy Questionnaire
« on: February 20, 2011, 01:53:24 PM »
Welcome to Elliquiy!

Click here and open this link in a new window or tab <- this will take you to another tab where you can start your Introduction thread, while still being able to read the rest of this page.

The questionnaire is the first step in our interactive approval process. Your Introduction thread will help us get to know you (not your favorite character), which is essential for our Approvals Team to make a timely decision. Your Introduction thread also helps members determine who they might find appealing as a writing partner.



Required Questions:
These questions must be answered to start your application


1.    Tell us how you found us, please? A link from another site, another member, a search engine phrase, etcetera.

2.    Confirmation that you understand our rules. You are responsible for bringing up any questions if you do not understand our rules, so please note any on which you need clarification here.

3.    A confirmation that you are over eighteen (18) years of age. You don't need to give your birth date, however we do need a clear statement that you are of age.

4.    Your native language(s) and what region you are from. List your primary language first and include all others in order of fluency. Elliquiy is an English speaking community but it is also a global one.  We welcome members from all over the world, and we love to know where our members hail from.

5.    What are your reasons for joining Elliquiy, and what aspects of our community are you interested in? What do you look for in an on-line community in general, and a role-playing community specifically? Please be descriptive. Elliquiy isn’t just an adult roleplaying site: we have forums for storytelling, poetry, and art; places to socialize with other members; areas to discuss politics and religion; and so much more! You can check out our Preview of Elliquiy to get an idea of what you’ll see as an approved member.

6.    Are you new to roleplaying? If so, would you like someone to help you get more involved? If not, please tell us a little about your past experiences. Regardless of your experience what are your expectations from a roleplay partner?

7.    Elliquiy consists of a wide array of sexualities, personalities and enthusiasts of various kinks. How comfortable are you interacting in such a community?

8.    How do you feel about males writing as female characters or females writing as male characters? Please elaborate: do you do this yourself? Would you write with someone who is doing this? If you are transgender or intersex, feel free to adapt this question appropriately.

9.    Let us know about your pet peeves or other things that bother you. Fetishes you do not like, styles you cannot appreciate and attitudes that annoy you are all valid answers here.


Optional Questions:
As our application process is a chance for us to get to know you better, we've left a few optional questions to get you started.  A member of our Welcoming team will be along soon to continue the process. If you do choose to answer these at a later date, you will need to reply to your introduction thread with a new post, as unapproved applicants cannot edit posts.

A.    Would you like to disclose your gender identity? We do not require our members to reveal their real gender. However, doing so determines your User Group, Badge, and some OOC Boards on Elliquiy. General membership will be processed as Legate - approved members who do not wish to disclose their gender identity, or feel gender is irrelevant. Approved members who have chosen to reveal their gender as a response to this question will be assigned: Lady (for those who identify as female), Liege (A supportive group for individuals who are intersex, do not identify with one singular gender, or who are transitioning), or Lord (for those who identify as male). A full explanation of Elliquiy’s User Group and Badge system can be found here.

B.    What are some hobbies or activities you particularly enjoy? This can be anything you enjoy in your free time. For example: videogames, sports, cooking, crafts, traveling, reading, etcetera. As a large and diverse community, we often have social areas where our members can talk about their favorite things, so letting us know what you like can better help our Mentors to find boards, threads, or discussions that might interest you!

C.    What would you do if a writing partner suddenly, and without prior discussion, included one of your major offs in your roleplay?

D.    Please describe your writing style and preferences. Information such as preferred genre, writing perspective (first, second, or third person perspective), setting, and post length are great answers.

E.    Please describe your ideal roleplaying partner and their character.

F.    As part of the application process, our members like asking fun questions of applicants. We want to get to know you and entertain you during your approval process!
 

            F1. Please let us know if you would you prefer: fun/silly questions, writing prompts, both, or neither. If you opt out, our Staff and Mentors will ask you more serious questions about writing and roleplaying instead.
 

            F2. If you would like fun questions or a writing prompt, please start by treating the following as either a question, writing prompt, or character building exercise, and remember to keep it PG13: People start waking up with superpowers, but they are mostly useless. For example, the power to be immune to every third bullet, or the power to force people to do the chicken dance whenever the song is played. What would your ‘mostly useless’ power be, and how would you use it?
 

            F3. If you prefer no crazy questions or prompts, you can still include a sample of your writing, if you would like; we would love to see your writing style and creativity! As with all areas of Elliquiy you can see right now, please keep your writing sample PG13.

G.    Do you have any questions of us? If you have any questions or desires of us in a more direct fashion, please feel free to let us know.

Writing quality is noted, but not judged. Etiquette IS judged. While we adore good writers, we are looking for mature writers. Someone who considers themselves 'elite' may very well not pass muster here. At the same time, someone who prefers smaller posts may be quite welcome.

We have members who produce pages for every post, and members who frequently make only a few sentences in a post. Both extremes are welcome here. If you are curious about what we are looking for, here are the basics of our guidelines:

  • Treat other members with respect. This is covered, in detail, in the rules. This includes the mentors and other staff of the site.
  • Be patient. It takes time to get in. There is plenty to participate in on the public forums while you wait, and we encourage this. Make friends!



There is a minimum of 24 hours between your first post in the introduction forum and approval, but more than likely it will take several days to a week or more. This is to help you meet more people that may interest you, and in part because of the flood of introductions we are getting as of late.

There are things that may make you uncomfortable here. Content is clearly sectioned; if a particular subject does not interest you, please stay out of its section. Thank you.

Avoid placing graphic material, links, e-mails or other contact information in your introductions or other public areas. Also, if you wish to discuss matters in semi-private with a moderator, go to the Unapproved forums and post a topic there (due to abuse we had to disable the reading and writing of Private Messages for guests).

Please title and make your answers clear, so that we can find them. Some applicants color code their answers to the questions, quote the message, or respond by number. Multi-phrase answers are also appreciated and help determine how well you will fit into our community.

Note: Unapproved members cannot edit or delete posts.

You will notice, in the rules, that Elliquiy does not have a post length minimum, unlike some other role-playing sites. That isn't going to change - some members here enjoy vivid detail, others prefer pithiness. We extol the virtues of both, here. However, you should be able to be descriptive where the situation warrants.

Things that will delay approval.
  • Sharing an IP address with someone else. We frown on duplicate accounts, so require some convincing that you are at least two people.
  • Misbehaving or otherwise creeping members out. This can delay approval indefinitely if bad enough.
  • If we find out you are under eighteen, you aren't getting in until you are.
  • We do not approve members with only a single post. We expect you to be able to hold a conversation.
  • Impatience may convince us that you need to learn some.
  • You did not answer each of the questions.
  • You did not convince us that you are mentally mature.
  • Vacations, illness or absences by the administrative staff.
  • Holiday seasons may affect the time it takes to process approvals.

If you start misbehaving soon after approval, your membership may be revoked. Please ask a staff member for clarifications if needed.

Thank you for your stay and we hope you will have an absolutely wonderful time here!
