In other news, I would like to direct your attention to the rules of the community. It has been brought to our attention that some members have inadvertently played other characters; I would like to reiterate that this is not allowed (even if a character is not in the community) and will be kept a close eye on. This rule has gray area, indeed. For instance:
"Today Peter, Remus, James, and I climbed the windy steps of the castle to Gryffindor tower." This is allowed. It is canon that the four are in Gryffindor and nothing definitive is said about any of the characters mentioned. This is also alright because although we do not have a Peter currently, what is mentioned about his character is canon.
Conversely, "Today I saw Peter creeping into the Slytherin common room," is not allowed. Peter is not yet in the community, as mentioned above, so something like this is not allowed. Why? Because nothing about it is canon. This is an independent action of a character not yet in the roleplay; it is also something other characters could build off of to create a sub-plot. If we do get a Peter, and he/she doesn't want his/her plot to run that way, what would happen?
With that, it is perfectly alright to mention other characters in the roleplay and the scenarios you roleplayed with them. Just keep this in mind as a rule of thumb - do not take over another character in dialogue or narration. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
Additionally, PLEASE ADVERTISE! Indeed, we have ten members, and we would love to get more. I know you would all enjoy having more characters to play with, so go ahead and advertise until your fingers feel numb. Or just shamelessly plug Mischief Managed in your personal journals. Either is encouraged. ;D
