From now on, we have a word count minimum. Really didn't want to bother implementing such a thing, but there have been a few people who have been confused by the guideline "put effort into your posts". The WC is very small, and I'm sure most people here will have no trouble with it. It's only there to ensure that whoever you happen to be RP'ing with has enough to go on.
From now on, all RP posts must be at least 100 words (although if you try to scrape by always posting 100-150 words, you will be warned). Sometimes there isn't a lot that needs to be said, but most of the time, detail is something that is needed. If you're playing a higher rank, such as ADV or MST, your posts should be at least 250-300 words. You were given such ranks because we believed you could handle them. If you feel that you can't, PM a staff member so that we can give you a more fitting rank. Detail and spelling/grammar is what we mostly mark when grading fights, training threads, and RP samples. If anyone ever wonders why they did not get the points they wanted for something, look at how you post. Should you need help improving, I can give you some tips; just PM me.
Also, people should be grammar and spell checking their posts. It's confusing to post back to someone who uses no punctuation whatsoever.
If you don't have a program like Microsoft Word, here is a site that you can use to WC your posts: http://www.wordcounttool.com/
From this day on, any posts under 100 words will be declared invalid by staff. You will be asked to edit your post before the thread can progress.
