View Full Version : Question on Rules/Etiquette

01-14-04, 04:43 PM
Just wondering about a few things as we open up this new fed...

- Anything banned in promos?

I know I've cussed (!) ;) a few times in my first couple promos, and no one's said anything, so I'm assuming it's ok. Not that it's been anything bad, but I know some people frown on that. If it's an issue, let me know and I'll stop.

- Amount of promoing

Not that I expect it to be an issue this particular week, but there's a couple things we go by in A1E. In singles matches, people must give their opponents 48 hours to respond (our promo periods are two weeks as opposed to one), and in tag matches, it's 24 hours. Any guidelines like that here, or is it free for all? Just curious, as I wouldn't want to start stacking promos on people before they have a legitimate chance to reply, and I wouldn't want the same done to me.

That's about it for now. If I think of anything else, I'll add it, or if anyone else comes up with with anything else, please post it here. Thanks in advance for the help.

I know I should have a rules page on the site, but there's not too many. I hope that this answers a few of your questions, and maybe for the rest of you out there that haven't asked yet it can shed some light on things.

RPS: Cursing is allowed, I don't care how much you do it, just remember that FW puts asterisks up for everything, including the words b*tch, f*ck, sh*t, whatever...

however, it doesn't put asterisks up for words like ****, cock, sh*t like that. In those cases, just edit the words out yourself. Example would be... "hey, (beep) go **** yourself you silly mother ****er.

so anyways, there's no real rules except for that one regarding swearing. Just remember that this should be like a normal television program, and all the sh*t should be edited accordingly.

For response times... it's pretty much a free for all. There's no limit to rps, as I'm not going to hold back people's creative juices. I feel if you guys want to get into things, you should be able to no matter what.

Angles: The angle deadline will always be the day before the rp deadlines, really. Any angles should be sent to empireprowrestling@hotmail.com. The only thing you can't do in your promos and angles is use other wrestlers characters without their permission. I mean, you can attack them, but any dialogue by their character should be run by them. Just use your best judgement guys, if you think it goes beyond what you're allowed to do, contact their handler. I should have everyone's emails in the roster section.

Deadlines: Rps posted after the deadline will not count towards the decision making process for match results. You may continue to rp, but if it wasn't posted before the cut off time, it won't count.

Any other questions fellas? =)
