Introducing Character Stories
Your character is the heart of your experience at GTALife. Their story will define your play style. So establishing their background, personality, and traits is important.
This thread outlines the basic rules for creating a character for the game, as well as proving a few tips and pointers for those who may be struggling with the logistics of creation, or may be lacking inspiration.
A few key things to remember when creating your character:
Where are they from?
Why are they in Los Santos?
What are their skills?
What type of personality do they have? (Kind, aggressive, thoughtful, rash, etc)
When creating your character, we require you to use restraint, common sense, and to follow our rules and guidelines. We do not wish to limit character creation too much, but there are a few common sense rules that are in place to foster positive roleplay between characters in game, these are:
Characters must have a realistic and proper name (First and last names, no symbols, titles, or non-alphanumeric characters)
Character names must not resemble any celebrities or famous people.
Characters may not be used to mock or impersonate members of the community, or other real people.
Once you have created your character and have begun to play, it is important to behave in a way that reflects the character and their personality, as well as following rules that are intended to create a natural and fair character based experience for all. This being a roleplay server, we have some requirements and rules that are to be observed when playing as your character on the server. These can be viewed here.
Introducing Community Voice
Community voice is a way you can directly influence and be involved in decisions that matter to you. It is a platform for various teams of the community to gather your thoughts, opinions and feedback.
A few examples:
The development team is looking to introduce a new feature to the server and would like to find out if it would be popular.
New rules are being introduced but we would like more clarification around its wording.
A new change has been implemented by The Board and we would like to gather feedback about its success.
How it works:
A member of The Board, manager or developer will create a post in the following format:
[Reason for Post] [Poll Close Date]
Creating a poll:
Polls can be created to support their post and used to gather your immediate opinion. They must be clear in the question being asked and the available responses. Poll will run for a maximum of 7 days.
All posts created in the community voice forum area will lock automatically after 14 days of deliberation whereby the appropriate team can discuss the outcome of your ideas and feedback.
We strongly encourage you to get involved and have your say. After all - its your community!
