Before continuing please make sure you have read the Getting Started Guide. It is also recommended you read the policy on characters before you make one, to avoid doing anything that would put you in breach of our policies.
Give multiple suggestions for your character. For example, listing three different tent choices for your character except for one. Your first choice is not guaranteed as we are trying to be fair and fill all tents equally.
Over time any tent that has substantially more characters then the other tents is subject to be turned down. The only reason a character would be turned down would be under these terms, and not for any other reason. The administrators will treat each request with respect and try to do the best to make each user happy while at the same time being fair to the site as a whole, so that as much as possible there are equal user's in each tent. As much as it would be nice to allow everyone their first choice the game will be far more fun if all tents are full and not just the popular magic. Once some of the lesser popular tents have filled up bans will be lifted. So there is always the possibility that just because your first character couldn't be one of these, you could down the road have a second character.
DO NOT make your character page until your character has been approved. If you make your character page before gaining approval, this is grounds for a warning and is in breach of our policies. DO NOT put any userboxes on your user page until your character has been approved and then only the user boxes for your approved characters.
Aside from a few choices as to what magic type your character will use, if you could add a little more information about them, that would be appreciated. You can list any weapons, personality quirks, likes, dislikes.
Although anon's can make claims, they will not be approved until that user is logged in. The reason for this is that due to some of our policies here regarding activity and number of major and minor characters allowed we need to be able to keep track of user's and their characters, anon's ips are not always the same, so that is not a reliable way to keep track of a user. When you make a claim, be sure to log in first and sign your claim with 4 ~.
We have a new level system dictating how many characters users may have. Campers are considered major characters, all other species are considered minor and there is no real limit on how many minor characters a user can have within reason:
Entry Level: All brand new users start out at entry level, you are allowed 1 major character for the first week you are here.
Level One: This is for users who have been here at least one week and now have two campers. They may also take part in a club or band, but not make one. As well as make claims for pets.
Level Two: This is for users who have been here at least two weeks and now have three campers.
Level Three: This is for users who have been here at least three weeks, now have four character spots available to them, and can now join on quests.
Level Four: This is for users who have been here at least four weeks, now have six character spots available to them, can now lead quests of their own as well as challenge for positions of power within the camp, and put in requests to make clubs and bands.
Level Five: Level Five is for users who have been here for over 5 weeks, you can now have 8 major characters.
Note: Levels are mainly decided by amount of time on the wiki, but occasionally users can be bumped up faster for lots of good active helpful role playing, as well as users who are barely active or who we've had disciplinary problems with, could rise through the ranks slower.
If you have no idea who you want for a character, or what to create for a bio, but simply want to role play, we do have characters up for adoption from time to time. You can see those characters here, that are currently up for adoption. If you would like to try and adopt one of these characters instead of going through this claiming process, there is a link at the top of the characters page as to who owns that character, you can contact them about adopting that character.
Fullest Tents that DO NOT Need more Campers (20 or more campers)
People In Charge of Claims
Claims are run by the Administrative and Support Department. Please keep in mind that all of us are here voluntarily, we do not get paid to run this site. Because of this, many of us have real life responsibilities to attend to also. We promise to get to your claims as soon as possible, but badgering us will not get them looked at any sooner.
These are the administrators in charge of this department in my absence.
These are the rollback users who work in this department assisting me and the administrators here.
Department Helpers from other Departments
These are users who accept claims, but don't generally help out in this deptartment on a regular basis. All members of the administration team are able to accept claims.
These are users who are not in the Administrative & Support department, but help get claims ready to be approved, so you may see them making comments to claims from time to time.
