Due to the increased number of conflicts with images, we now have an image policy.
There is an absolute limit of two actors/personalities/characters which any one user can reserve at any time. If an image is reserved and then a char is not created using it within a month of the reservation, that image is considered to be 'back in circulation'.
The use of famous actors from popular movies (such as Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, etc) are prohibited. "Extras", actors that are not easily recognized, or actors that are not in a big "name" movie, are okay. However, images of actors may be subject to administrator review.
Examples of actors that are prohibited: Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson), Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), etc
- If you started using famous actors before June 1st, 2013, then you may continue using the actors that you currently have. However, no new characters should be created using famous actors, especially from Harry Potter. If you have a question if your actor is acceptable, ask an OOC Department Administrator.
No more than two characters for any one user, or four total, should generally come from the major cast of a single source, e.g. one film (series) or TV show. This is to help ensure that group dynamics from the original don't transfer here to 'dictate' roles and interaction.
Even though it's unlikely that you'll be able to EXACTLY match your characters age with the age of the actor that you are using, please make them within a few years. A student character using a 25-30 year old actor does not, in general, work.
