Character application  



Before you apply for a character, make sure you read the RULES. We have a way of knowing if you don't!



Steps to applying.

1. Create a journal for your character.
2. Copy and paste the application code (provided at the bottom of the page) into an entry in your new character journal.
3. Fill out the app in the snazziest way you can! If you wish to create an original character, check out this link.
4. Reply to THIS post with a link to your character application. Make sure the entry is unlocked so that the mods can view it!
5. We'll give you an answer as soon as we can. :)



If your character is approved.

1. Friend the mod journal, peoplewilltalk.
2. Go HERE to accept your invites to thegildedage and gildedooc.
3. Create an inbox post for your character, IN YOUR CHARACTER'S JOURNAL. It should look something like THIS.
4. Comment to THIS POST with what student organizations you want your character to be a part of.
5. Introduce yourself--and your character--at the OOC comm and get playing!



If your character is rejected.

1. We will have left some constructive criticism for you in a comment. See what we have to say, and if you agree, amp up your app and reapply!
2. If you still don't understand why we turned down your application, contact the mods HERE.

Before we accept Mischa--and we will!--we just want to know if it was your intent to make her a graduate of Constance Billard? Since she was a 12th grader during season one, that would make her a year older than the canon cast.

third time's the charm. no typos this time.
Thanks for your interest in thegildedage! Jenny is officially approved! Be sure to do all that is listed in the "after approval" section of this page. :)

BTW, Jenna: a bit of Jenny's history came from season two, but our game starts after season one--so basically we're "replacing" season two, if you will. Do you want to keep that extra bit of Jenny's history and say that it happened over the summer?
ha, you pretend i'm getting notifications. - sequineddreams on August 8th, 2009 06:37 am (UTC) (Expand)

Thanks for your interest in thegildedage! Blair is officially approved! Be sure to do all that is listed in the "after approval" section of this page.

We do have one piece of advice for you--which may even be unnecessary considering that we haven't seen your RPing in action yet--but it would be fantastic if you could bring to your Blair the same cutting wit that she has in the show. :)

We look forward to RP-ing with you!

If this character is too close to Blair or the new girl, I can edit. I don't plan on her being the character from the premises and I'm perfectly willing to let Lina be less drama.
lala_linali on August 11th, 2009 06:41 pm (UTC)
Also, I have some background for Lina I didn't put into the public bio because I think they would be more fun if found out during the game. I can message you with it if interested.

Thanks for your interest in thegildedage! Stanislav is officially accepted! Be sure to do all that is listed in the "after approval" section of this page.

Our game is currently in a bit of a dry spell, but as soon as everyone gets back, I encourage you to get in touch with Diz (she plays Blair) and work out how Stanislav and Blair will interact.

P.S. Your app was excellent! Very well developed. :)

Thanks for your interest in thegildedage! Before we accept Auden, we just have two point to bring up.

Firstly, we have a girl named "Audrey" at this game already, and we were wondering if you're okay with having a similar-sounding name. If it bothers you, you might want to consider another first name. If not, then it's perfectly fine!

Secondly, you mention that Auden is a scholarship student, but if she's from an upper class family, she would most likely not be awarded such a big grant; her family would have to pay. See if you can work that out and comment back when you have!

We look forward to playing with you!

Thanks for your interest in thegildedage! Eva is officially accepted!

Before you begin gameplay, we'd just like to remind you to keep Eva's positive traits balanced with flaws. Your application makes her sound too perfect, so keep a bit of realism in mind.

And...that's it! We look forward to RPing with you!

Thanks for your interest in thegildedage! Elias is officially accepted! Be sure to do all that is listed in the "after approval" section of this page.

Before you begin gameplay, we'd just like to point out that when typing in third-person form, everytime the speaker changes, you should begin a new line, like so:

"Hey," said Serena.

The girl across the room said, "Hi," and waved back.


That said, we look forward to playing with you!

Thanks so much for your interest in thegildedage! There was no need to be nervous, because your app was wonderful, and Chuck Bass is officially approved! :D

Be sure to:
1. Friend the mod journal (the one I'm commenting from).
2. Accept your invites to thegildedage and gildedooc
3. Create an inbox post for your character, IN YOUR CHARACTER'S JOURNAL. looks like you already have!
4. And most importantly, introduce yourself--and your character--at the OOC comm and get playing!

We're glad to have you aboard!

Thanks for applying to thegildedage! Dan is officially accepted. That was an excellent, excellent app, by the way--one of the best-worded I've seen recently! The third-person RP segment was particularly brilliant.

Be sure to:
1. Friend the mod journal (the one I'm commenting from).
2. Accept your invites to thegildedage and gildedooc
3. Create an inbox post for your character, IN YOUR CHARACTER'S JOURNAL. looks like you already have!
4. And most importantly, introduce yourself--and your character--at the OOC comm and get playing!

We're glad to have you aboard!

PS: before you applied for him, Dan was an NPC and therefore was used as a plot point by our Serena character, who has mentioned Dan's supposed new girlfriend in a thread tag or two. Are you okay with this? That is, do you want to run with it, or shall we say Serena just heard some stupid rumors?

Hi! Thanks so much for your interest in the game! Before we accept Yale, we'd like to inform you that thegildedage is currently in the process of coming back from a 2-month hiatus. It may be a week or so before gameplay resumes, and when it does, it may be a little slower than usual. If you're okay with this and still interested in joining us, we'd be more than happy to add you and Yale to our player and character rosters, respectively.

Let us know! :)
