I. Please read the Rules first and make sure you agree with them.

Then read the following game information:

Decide what species you would like your character to be and where you would like them to live.

Double-check the Reserves and Taken pages to make sure the celebrity you want to use as played-by (face claim) for your character isn't already taken by another member. Reserve your favorite celebrity face to make sure they'll be available to you at the time you submit your application.

Get a Dreamwidth journal for your character at (and an AIM screenname if you don't have one already). Post an entry with your application in the journal or wait until your application is accepted and get the journal later.

1.) Organize > Manage Account > My Account Settings > Privacy:

If you want to remove your email address from your character's profile page, select "Nobody" from the drop down menu under Contact Info Security.

Please make sure under Off-Site Search Engines that "Attempt to block outside search engines from indexing my journal" is checked.

Please make sure under IP Address Logging that Log IP addresses of "Nobody" is chosen to assure the privacy of your fellow members.
