If something's here, it's here for a reason. We know that the number of threads here is scary, but trust us, they're important. They may be updated on occasion; however, if they are, a staff member will make an announcement stating that they are changed. It is, however, your responsibility to read the updated information.
All staff updates and announcements will be posted here. This can be anything from rule updates to contests, promos, and anything else the staff feel like mentioning. all contests and promos will begin respectively with 'CONTEST:' or 'PROMO:'. less important staff mentions will begin with 'UPDATE:' and important staff mentions will begin with 'ANNOUNCEMENT:'. Please pay full attention to this board, especially in such case of an announcement. Note: Members are allowed to reply here, but cannot start threads.
Occasionally the staff will think up some awesome ideas for the members to participate in with their characters. When these things happen, they will be posted here. Some plots have requirements; when these requirements have been met, a plot's title will be edited to include the prefix 'COMPLETED:' and you will no longer be able to participate in it.
Like most sites, Stars conducts regular activity checks. As to when these are, well, that's entirely up to the staff. All past activity checks will be archived here and marked with the prefix 'COMPLETED:' whereas if there is a current activity check posted it will be marked with the prefix 'ONGOING:' so please to check to see if there is an ongoing check every so often.
Even in such an isolated place, boy do the rumors fly! Anywhere students go, peculiarities are definitely sure to follow. And for all the latest gossip and scandals, THE PHOEDEX is here just to bring you all the latest news on campus! Feel free to submit tips, but make sure they're posted as a guest!
All current residents of Phoex Academy are listed here along with a complete description of them. Files will be found in alphabetical order and separated based on whether the resident is a student or teacher at the academy.
This is where you can keep track of a character's Pokemon, where they are (i.e. party, PC), what a character's partner Pokemon is, their current inventory, and so on. There is a template provided, but you do not have to use it if you'd rather make your own. THIS IS MANDATORY FOR ALL CHARACTERS.
Though these are more popular on Invisionfree, it seemed logical within a school setting such as Phoex to have them. Friends, enemies, crushes, whatever; your character's bound to have them. Here's the place to make that happen. Just look at other threads if you're confused about how these work.
There's always some point in role playing when you need that character, and plot ads just don't help you. If you're in need of a specific character you can't find other than it being made specifically for a certain purpose, feel free to post here; someone's bound to be interested in the idea! And remember, if you're bumping a topic, please only bump once every three days to be fair to others. this board is guest friendly!
Of course teenagers are attached to technology. You live in the present, you've got all the latest gadgets. Instant messaging and cell phones are just two of those tools; the means to talk to someone right at your fingertips without even having to get up. Be sure to visit the screen name claim and phone number index stickied inside before making a thread.
People may set up threads for trades here, if they wish to, or may offer Pokémon for the Pokémon of others. You may not give Pokémon away, and you may not trade a character's partner Pokémon. Thinking about breeding your Pokémon, but don't know how? Never fear, there's specialized breeders on campus just to help you out. And of course, there's always those poor helpless Pokémon stuck without a home, will you take one?
For those people whose characters' links take up more space than the 400 characters allowed in a signature, they may simply make a thread here and have a single link in their signature linking to the thread. How convenient, eh? Of course, you're welcome to do this even if your signature is in the character limit, as well.
Want to chat, and the cbox just isn't enough? You can talk about anything you'd like here, whether it's Pokémon related or not. There is a sub-board for absences so you can let us know if you happen to be going anywhere anytime soon, as well as a sub-board for games, whether they're in character or out of character.
If you are advertising on Stars, please be sure to post in the right sub-board. Occasionally, the staff will run checks of sites that have advertised here; if your site is deemed inactive, your ad will be removed. If you're looking to affiliate, please look at the thread stickied inside this board. this board is guest friendly!
All your awesome staff here at Stars come to this board to sit on the beach drinking pina coladas plan awesome things for the site! You'd better beware the awesome, get too close and you might spontaneously combust... or something. D:
All threads deemed complete or inactive, "dead" and denied character applications, and any other threads not needed and not archived elsewhere will be placed here to keep the board neater. If for whatever reason you need a thread moved back out of the thread graveyard, please contact a board mod -- we repeat, board mod, not any other staff -- about getting it moved.
