Post subject:  Editing your bio

When you create a character we have strict rules regarding its approval. The fact that changes could be made after approval, whereby a minority of players abused the process, was always a concern to Bio approvers. Unfortunately on the old boards monitoring this was extremely difficult. However these boards have a facility for post approval which we have implemented only in the approved bio forum.

This means that when you edit or add to your biography the post is flagged to Chroniclers for approval. They will review the changes you have made and then approve or deny the post or amendment.

You must make an extra post documenting changes in class or deity when you amend your original bio headers. You wrote your initial bio with care and it was approved with care. Fundamental changes to your character such as these should be a process and you should refer to in game or forum rp recording this process.

If the post you make is approved then it will appear on your bio, if it is not approved the Chronicler will contact you to discuss it.

This is not designed to make life hard for you. We are first and foremost a RP server and the decisions your character make should have RP supporting it. This is just to help us and you monitor that process.

Since there has been some confusion on how to do this, I shall elaborate.

    *Make a new post in your existing character's biography. In that post, explain the changes with In Character explanation. IE : "Kall has grown to find a new hobby in signing along happily while bashing the heads of his opponents." //Class changed to Cleric/Bard. You can go in to detail how it happened in game or point to a forum thread, or anything of the like. You can also request deletion of that addendum post - if, for example, you just fixed some typo's in your bio or added some RP links to it.

    *That post will turn invisible to you. It will appear as waiting for approval for the Bio Approvers.

    *Make the changes to your original biography header. IE : Change Kall's class to Cleric/Bard.

    *Your biography will turn invisible to you. It will appear as waiting for approval for the Bio Approvers. Now the Bio approver can approve both of those post at the same time.

    *You can still play with your character while you wait. If there's a problem with your bio or the new character, a Bio Approver will contact you.

    *If your Biography is good to go, you will see it again in few hours/days. Don't Panic!

FIRST add a post to explain what you are changing...

THEN edit the header.
