This is a re-post of my earlier post, made into a sticky for future reference and updated.

Here are some general rules I need to put out there so that we understand each other. This way, none of you will accidentally get on my nerves...heh. Also, it's a good barometer for how things are/will be run.

1. DO NOT IM or email me to tell me how you think you should have won a match because your roleplays were better, but I chose the other guy. I will job you, and I will job you hard. You will submit to a headlock. Understood? Good

I WILL accept questions regarding WHY you lost. You may ask for a detailed opinion of your roleplay, why I judged the other guy/girl as better, why you lost in general. Just don't tell me you should have won. It's over and nothing will come of it other than me being annoyed.

2. DO NOT no-show a match unless you have emailed me a reason first. If you no-show a match and can't email a reason, email me one as soon as you are able. If you no-show me without reason, this is another spot where you will job and job hard.

If you no-show a PPV, you more than likely will not be booked until I get an explanation (assuming you didn't email me).

If you no-show a PPV as a champion, it's time to find yourself another fed.

3. If your opponent has roleplayed, and you post your lone reply within a few hours of the deadline, I will look very unfavorably on you for doing so. This is what is referred to as "sniping", and it isn't fair to your opponent. There are rules for this in this very forum.

4. If you break character in a way inconsistent with the usual behavior of your character, you will lose. If a change in attitude is in the works, I suggest you email me about it. If I push you as a face and you start acting strangely heelish without any word, I'll look down on that. Keep me in the loop.

As an addendum, don't mention other feds in roleplay unless it is specifically relevant to the match or storyline at hand. Don't make fun of someone's actions in another fed unless it's directly relevant. Quite honestly, 95% of your audience won't know what the hell you're talking about and probably won't care.

However, an exception to this rule is that if your opponent brings up or brags about something from another fed - it is then fair game. You are free to defend yourself and/or attack stupidity. Be creative.

5. If you send in an angle or storyline suggestion and I don't feel I can use it, I will 100% of the time contact you to see if we can alter it to your satisfaction in order to run it in another way. I may have to turn it down completely from time to time, but I'll do all I can to see that you're happy. I will not edit anyone's storylines without notifying them first. I will also never write dialogue for your character without permission.

6. Don't ask me when the card will be done unless you're offering to help finish it. I will job you. You will wrestle a match in a diaper. Sense a theme?

7. There will be no airing of dirty laundry in public. If you have a problem with another handler, go to them first. If that doesn't resolve it, come to me. If I see it on the boards, I will lock it up immediately. Then I'll take care of it in private, and it might not be pretty. This is a zero tolerance policy. The EPW forums are a drama free zone.

I thought rule #1 was: "Never leave a fellow crasher behind. Crashers take care of their own."

Damn, this is my first time reading this, and I've realized that I had to atleast break a couple of these! On more than one occasion! Jeez! Sorry Dave!
