Basic HTML
**how to RP without Rich text Editor (since comments dont have that option)**

*Using links to pictures of people, clothes, places, object or journal entries can come in handy when rping.
For a link to a picture of journal type: <a href="link">description</a>

*Putting up thumbnails or pictures in your posts makes it more interesting. Remember to replace # with the px height you want.
For a sized picture or to create a thumbnail type: <img height="#" src="linktopicture"/>

*Using bolds italics, underline, strike and small
<b>bold</b>
<i>italics</i>
<u>underline</u>
<strike>strike</strike>


Making different types of comments
out of character
[ OOC: this means you are talking as you not as your muse. having it in small text makes it less distracting in the middle of a thread. ]
<small>[ooc: comment ]</small>

private to messages
[private to 'muse name']
message
[/private]
<b>[private to 'muse name']
message
<b>[/private]</b>

pix messaging or text messaging
[text to 'muse name']
text message
[/text]
<b>[text to 'muse name']</b>
<font face="courier">text message</font>
<b>[/text]</b>

creating a post or a thread
[open to 'muse name']
<b>[open to 'muse name']</b>
or simply put open if you don't mind who answers.

Do not use *action word* when RPing on community threads. That can be used on personal journals but when RPing write as if you are drafting a story. Write out the actions of your muse, use "quotations" for speaking and perhaps italics for thoughts.

Try to avoid using ((ooc comment)) and stick to [ooc: comments] so that everyone in the community is on the same page.

Remember to be active both the community and your muses journals. Your muse might want to make an introductory post in his journal so other muses have a better idea of who he is as a person, his personality.
