What's up? I'm new.

Recommended Posts

Helllooo! I'll just follow this basic guidelines in the 'Guide to posting an introduction' for this.

 

  • About Myself

I'm a college student who has always really enjoyed storytelling, and world building. I was into the MLP fandom when it first took off, but I haven't been involved in it really since I saw it on Netflix like a month ago and decided to watch it again. Fun stuff! Otherwise, I'm easy-going and look forward to getting back into RP and meeting some cool people here.

 

  • How I found this website

I was just googling mlp roleplay websites lol. I've never used a forum format before though, so we'll see what happens.

 

  • How I became a fan of MLP:FiM

People simple, I saw people talking about it online like half way through the first season, and gave it a shot. Really liked it past the first episode. 

 

  • My favorite pony

Pinkie Pie best pone :D

Fluttershy is a close second, and Scootaloo is my favorite cmc. I like all of the main cast, though. 

 

  • The Fun Part

Where's the fun?

Like I said, I've never RP'd in a forum format before, so I was hoping someone could kind of help me figure that out. Otherwise I'm just poking around and lurking to figure it out before I do anything. I've spent a while working on my OC, backstory, her family, etc etc, so I'd like to meet like minded people that enjoy that kind of stuff too. My drawing skills are pretty rusty, and I can't do digital art at all, beyond going over stuff I drew with paint.net,

Spoiler

which makes it look a lot worse tbh, but it helps with colors

, so that's whatever. 

Anyways, nice to meet you.

Also I have a yuge map of Equestria I've been working on, so if anyone wants to see that lemme know. I promise I'm better at making maps on paint than I am making ponies.

Welcome to Canterlot.com!

I am Kahoot :D 

 

I am more than positive you will enjoy your stay, to start off of course... You should probably read the site guidelines and protocols of RP before getting started. The rules are easy to follow and simply a way to allow everyone to have fun. Now, anypony is allowed to post a thread in the Free For All section without making a character application... This is where things may seem a bit confusing, but do not fret! A character application is basically a description of your OC or a character you would like to use in the World of Equestriaforum. In fact, they're not at all hard to make, here is a guide on how to make one and here is an example of one (As you can see in the comments of my thread, a Senior RP Staff or Moderator put an approval message, this is when you know you're all set for RP fun in the WoE section). As you can see, under your profile image it says "Member", once it says "RP Certified" like under my profile image, that is when you know you're set and ready to RP in the WoE section as well. Also! It may take a day or two for you to become RP Certified, for me, it took a bit longer and if you've been waiting a while, don't hesitate to contact staff... They're really nice and helpful!

 

Free For All- You do not need an approved application or be RP Certified, your OC can be anything you like... From an alicorn to some weird hybrid of a monster... It's all up to you!

World of Equestria- Your character has to be more realistic, here are some examples of animals your OC may be... Staff may ask for you to change a few things before they can approve it. If you want to use a pony or animal from the actual MLP show itself, you will also need to make an application for them... Here is a list of cast members from the show!

Crossovers- Want your pony in a video game, anime, show? Look no further! For here is where your pony can live in Narnia, maybe even the land of Ooo? Anything!

Multiverse- Basically a place for Alternate Universe's.

Out of Character Discussion- Now, they're two of these... One for the Free For All forum and one for WoE forum. Here, you can plan out your RP's, it's a great tool if there is more than you and another pony!

 

Don't forget to title for RP's with Open (If you're still welcoming more players), Closed (If you're no longer welcoming anyone else), Ask to Join (If someone would like to join, this title tells them to contact you for permission), or Sign up in OOC (This directs an interested pony to go to your thread in the Out of Character section to sign up... This basically means they will provide a description of the OC or character they would like to use... This is good for long-term RP's with a lot of players)

 

Now I know, this may seem really complicated but it isn't once you get the hang of it! I went through this process myself and now everything is going by like a piece of cake :D 

Already have OCs? You will need to make an application for them if you would like to use them in WoE as I stated above, although, you can freely use them in the Free For All forum without them being approved.

 

If you still feel lost about a certain forum, there is a description in small letters underneath the title!

 

You can make a character log to hold all your OC's and playable cast members, here is an example. Character sheets are the Free For All version of a character application, here is an example.

 

Hopefully, I cleared up most things... If you're still lost, simply ask for help! I am more than happy to help a fellow member out :)
