Mod Announcements

A few important things in this so make sure to read it all!

1. Animus will be switching to monthly application cycles. Do to our changing schedules and the increasing number of applications we receive weekly (usually 15-20 or more every week), the best way for us to structure plots and get applications processed at a good speed is with this method.

The cycle will be as follows:
-The last seven days of the month, the activity check will happen and reservations will open. These reservations will be good for two days into the period of time applications are open.
-The first seven days of the month, applications will be open. Reservations will expire on the second, to give people time to submit applications for reserved characters if the person who has them on reserve doesn't go through with it.

This change will take place next week: we will process apps as normal this Sunday and next Sunday, and from then on the application cycle will take place. Reservations will close tomorrow, but any made until then will be valid until Sunday.

2. The activity check level is increasing in September. Not a big change: in September you will be expected to provide ten comments instead of five; if you take a strike, you will have to provide twenty comments the following month instead of ten. Again, this does not change the August activity check at all.

3. The way trunks work will be changed. Instead of being able to fill an entire trunk with as many items as you wish everyone will be limited to six items; this is the reason trunks were temporarily removed in the Breach event. We will also be eliminating the trunk page and instead asking that you all list trunk contents in your journal and provide a link. This will be part of August's activity check, so you have some time to consider which six items you want your character to have. Anything needed to make the character playable does not count toward this count (a wheelchair, for example).

4. We will be adding a new information page about the network. Therefore, we are asking you all for your input: what would you like to know about the network? There will be a thread for this in this post; please post your questions there. We will answer them and this information will also be added to the network information page.

So when you say ten comments, can that be spread out between multiple threads, or are you looking for a twenty-comment thread (ten of you, ten of the other person)?

What about clothing? Will each shirt/pants/pair of shoes/etc. count towards it, or is it counted as one thing?
Will they be able to request more from home?

Will multiple things in one container (e.g., a quiver of arrows or a video game case) count as one object or many?

Are items stored in pockets on clothing counted with the clothing, if clothing counts? If clothing does not count, do items in a set (Ishtar's bone fragments) count as one or many?

What about items characters removed from their trunks ICly before or during the event?

Is it only six ever?

As in, if they put stuff they made/found in the tower in to it and already have six things in it would something in it disappear?

Does the trunk limit only count towards items that were in the trunk when the whale hit or everything that the character has from home, regardless of where they keep it?

Asking because Rose has more than six items from the trunk page that she carries around in her sylladex rather than using the trunk.

WAIT. (hi this is aaron.)

I was told upon apping that sylladices from Homestuck were not applicable, because they essentially act as bags of holding for the characters and those aren't allowed to come from home. But Len said that Rose has one and she carries things around in it, and this will make a really big difference in how I handle the trunk business.

ARE THEY ALLOWED OR ARE THEY NOT ALLOWED. Were they empty upon arrival? WHAT IS THE DEAL WITH THEM ;o;

Since there's a lot of confusion about this, are sylladexes allowed in the Tower if they are empty upon entrance? They essentially work the same as bags of holding, but they seem to be a power that the characters have, not a physical bag or something coming through the trunks.

From this point forward, are our characters only going to be allowed to recover six of the items they had in their trunks? Whether or not they came from their own world.

Also just for future reference, if my character had a collection of small items (i.e. Xion's bag of shells) would that count as one item or several small ones?

Would a first aid kit count as one item or many? Because Zack hasn't used his yet, and it's definitely still stuffed with gauze and little travel bottles of antiseptic and bandages and stuff. Definitely more than six items in there, but it's in no way any kind of Bag of Holding. ^^;;

So yeah, I hear arms are what people need or something. So, Cross has a mechanical arm because he lost a limb. Will that count as one item? His spare will of course but the one he currently has on, will that count as a second?

I have John's movie posters listed as being in his trunk just so i know they're there but they're actually hanging on the wall and were when the whale hit. Now that the dorms have been restored, have they been restored as well or permanently destroyed?

If they have been restored, do they count towards the six item total since they weren't inside at the time of destruction? (I'm assuming that, like photos, they can be counted as a set?)

I should technically be on hiatus but...

Link carries most of her adventure inventory on her person (that is to say she's usually got her bow+quiver slung over her back, her sword and shield on her, is wearing her gauntlets, etc.) at all times, so would the "six items" in her trunk left over be what she WASN'T able to carry?

Like, say... her two other tunics and spare clothing she didn't make herself?

Also, what about things other characters gave yours that they kept in their trunk? (Like SS Link gave her his Sailcloth.) Would those count toward the total? How... should I do this? Should I count her 'adventure gear' as just like, one set of Things?

SORRY I AM SUPER CONFUSED

Is there a guide on how to use the network anywhere in game? Or do characters have to figure out how to use it for themselves?

You previously mentioned that there was a function to vocalize text posts, do they also have a vocal recognition system?
