Introduction Welcome to Role Play Idol! An original role play competition! 'Original' role playing (on KHV) is the acting out of a particular character you create yourself, from scratch. From name and age to bio and personality, you create this character and act them out in a story-like format with other players. So, do you enjoy role playing, competitions, or just writing in general? What about if you need help sharpening your role play skills, want to get back into it (or start it), or want to meet and interact with new people or role players? This competition may be for you! We're back for another fun Season. Hopefully this one will be more organized. ;D For those of you who competed or judged last time, take a look here to suggest some things to help this one run smoother! Uh, sure. But what is it? This will be an OC (original character) competition, meaning that each contestant will have one original character to create and compete with throughout. There will be a different 'season' each month, but this is for season two. If you sign up for season two, you do not have to compete in season three or onwards. The competition will last however long it lasts, at this point, lol. There will be several different challenges and themes, and this will work in an 'American Idol' style. There will be four judges. You can not compete and be a judge at the same time, but no matter who you are, you can apply to be a judge. There will be no more than 12 contestants a season. At the end of each challenge, the panel of judges will give their critiques to each member on their performance, and there will be a vote off period. Contestants and judges will be able to vote for their favorites, with no voting for themselves of course. The prize will of course be being crowned KHV's Role Play Idol for season two, and you also receive a pin! Okay, so I can just sign up and do whatever I want then? ...No, lol. Here are some guidelines/rules. ♣ There is no voting for yourself and when you vote, you must put a valid reason for why you're voting for who you're voting for in a post. ♣ Please be original. Your character cannot be from another anime, game, etc, unless the challenge causes for them to be. ♣ Your entry OC must be as simplified as possible. That means no powers or anything weird like that. Why? Because some of the challenges might conflict with that. Don't worry, the competition isn't that straight edge. You'll get to play with some powers. ♣ No god-modding. Yes, this still applies. No power playing. ♣ Do not ignore the other contestants. Interact with everyone fairly. ♣ Activity will be important, but you have three days to post between challenges and voting periods. ♣ Try to stay in character. ♣ A judge cannot be a contestant. ♣ You must have two characters. A girl, and a boy. They can be the same person, just gender flipped with different names if you want, but you'll see why this matters later. ♣ Don't bring drama into this. If you're paired up with someone you dislike during a challenge, and/or you get voted out, don't rage. Just deal with it, or try again next time. ♣ You cannot have your friends vote for you. I think I said it before, but people outside of the competition can vote for the contenders, but must provide a valid reason for doing so--like everyone else. If I find out you've asked your buddy to go vote for you and BS some reason, you will be disqualified. It is unfair and dishonest. Same goes for constantly voting for your friends, and for not voting at all. All contestants and judges are required to vote, FAIRLY. ♣ I reserve the right to add more rules before the competition starts, so check back here often if you decide to sign up! Alright, whatever. How do I sign up? Just fill out the sign up form below and wait for the fun to begin. :] This form can be short, by the way. You don't have to work hard at it. Remember, two characters. Male and Female. There are TWELVE slots open for contestants (if less than that sign up, then we'll rearrange some things). FOUR judge slots open. There's no way you'll be denied, if you apply. I won't 'not' accept you, so give it a shot. HTML: Played By: Name: Age: Gender: Appearance: Bio: Wait, what does a judge do, then? If you are a judge, your job is to read the posts, and follow the competition. Before the poll goes up, all of the judges will critique every contestant on their performance, and state who they think is the winner. The judges will have to have private conversations to mutually agree on who is the winner for that challenge (majority vote), and that person is immune from the poll. You guys aren't actually apart of the competition, but you help with the voting process, and eventually, crowning the winner. Your sign up is nonexistent, anyone can be a judge, even if you don't role play. Just be fair and send me a private message. Anyone posting on this thread about wanting to be a judge will be tsk'd and denied. First come, first serve. You cannot be a judge repetitively. New Rules and Guidelines; If you are a judge this time, you cannot be a judge for season three. However, you can be a judge for season four. I would prefer the judge have MSN, because that's where most of the discussion will be taking place and it's the easiest. Either that or access to Voxli if the majority of the judges don't have MSN. You'll have to write--a lot for each person, twelve in total, and you can't be lazy about it. You must post ON TIME, at least two paragraphs for each and every member, no exceptions UNLESS it's later in the Season and there's really nothing to be said. That's a total of 24 paragraphs required for the first round. This is so that all members get equal feedback and equal footing and chance to improve. If I can't get in touch with you for judging, or you don't get online, or you don't post your critiques, or aren't there for the group discussions without adequate reason and discussion with me, etc, etc, you will be dropped and replaced as a judge with a back-up judge and also be placed on probation for future seasons. Probation is more of a detention period, in this case. Meaning that you also will not have access to becoming a judge until later Seasons when enough time has passed. The reason for this is because it is entirely unfair to me, the other judges and the contestants for you to be inconsistent, or deem the work is too hard for you and just leave, lol. Please do not sign up for this job unless you can stick with it until the very end. Of course, this all excludes EMERGENCIES. So if something suddenly happens, like someone dies, or your power blacks out for a month or something, or your falling wayyy behind in school or something (and you don't have a history of claiming so and remaining super active everywhere else) then okay no punishment and it's understood.
