So, because I have a rather complicated site structure and application, I've decided to make a guide to hopefully help answer any questions you might have before you can ask them. Please make sure to read through each section carefully. If you still have questions afterwards, please feel free to ask them~
Most of the bigger boxes have their requirements in them already, so their explanation here is pretty terrible.
The coding is complicated, long, and tedious. I am fully aware as I spent 4 hours getting it exactly how I wanted. So no.You are not allowed to mess with it. Put images where images go. If text colors are different, make sure to put the proper letters in the proper places. You are not to alter the coding in any way other than what is required, like images. But that is literally it. Do not touch it. If you break it or something goes wrong, I will fix it once it's been posted. The preview tab screws with things. Please make sure to post your app before telling me that it's broken, because sometimes, it's literally just the preview tab.
Should be pretty explanatory, but for the sake of things.
Character's First AND Last name: Last names ARE required. Take in mind, this is London, England. Try to have European names unless you have an actual Asian character.
Lyrics: There is a line of Lyrics under the name, it needs to be somewhat long in order to fit. So please test it to make it fit properly before you post it, because it annoys me. The rest of the lyrics can be posted underneath in their own section, and you can have as many as you want, just make sure to post them line by line instead of in a big chunk or it looks stupid.
The Boxes: Age; in letters please. Gender; male, female, trans, fluid, I don't care really, just try not to say your gender is a car or something cuz that shit is ridiculous. Sexuality; a, trans, bi, pan, hetero, homo, basically whatever, again, try not to be ridiculous here, I don't care if you're into animals, but no squirrel sex on the site please. Loyalty; There's 3 of them, Kyrarei, Riku, and Self. If you've read the rules, you know what this means. If you haven't, shame on you, because I'm not explaining it here. Main Power; Obviously what your character's main power is.
Species: Your main species goes in the top box. This is what your character identifies as. If you are a pet or ex-pet, that will go in the main box, and the species you are mixed with go in the sub box, even if you only have one.
Example: Main Species Box; Ex-pet
Sub-Species Box; Nephilim. Or if there's more than one; Nephilim, Daemon, Hellion, etc.
First Tab - Abilities
These are your abilities, your powers. There are literally lists of them, so there shouldn't be too much trouble with this really. Depending on your species and your age, you get various powers.
Main Power Box: These are your main powers. There may be up to three of them. The requirements are also listed in the rules. You should probably go read them.
Pet Abilities: They have their own list and own rules. Make sure to follow them. If you are not a pet, delete the words in the section and put N/A
Racial Abilities: Same for this. Most of you won't have these. That's fine. Leave it blank or put N/A.
Unique Abilities: If you have any Unique abilities, they go in that section.
Second Tab - Personality
The Boxes: There are trait boxes. They aren't required, if you don't wish to use them, then just put N/A. You can have as many or as few as you wish.
Personality Box: This is required, even if you do the top boxes. Just write up about your personality. A small paragraph at least.
Third Tab - Appearance
The image at the top has a max width and height set, so regardless of what you put there, it will fit. But if you could try and get something around 465px x 120px that would be best. The image is not required, but if you don't use one, still leave the code alone please.
Appearance Box: Again, a small paragraph here about what your character looks like. Yes, it's required. The full image link is not required, but some people like it.
Faceclaim: It's there, Please use it. Yes, you still have to go actually put it in the face claim list.
Fourth Tab - History
History Box: Be as in depth as you want. Try not to be super vague.
Extras: This section is not really required. If you don't have anything to put here, just put N/A
Fifth Tab - OOC
Pretty basic stuff in here really. Alias, is your name. Your cbox name, the name you choose to go by around the site. Age would be how old you are, not your character, Timezone is what time zone you live in, for me it would be Central or -6cst. Method of contact. Do you have skype or discord? If so, put it, Skype: Username same goes for Discord: Username#0000 whatever the number is for you. If you don't, don't worry about it. If you'd rather be messaged on a social media site or over email, that'f fine too, put it. Just keep in mind, all applications are public.
Information Box: Literally anything else OOC you could possibly think to add. Put your other characters or something.
That's it. All done with the app. Notify an admin in the chatbox, the main box on the bottom is your best bet, otherwise the admin box in the side is meant for that. If you use the sidebox, please put a link.
Once that's done, you'll be notified when your character has been reviewed.
