Creating a Character Page

If you would like to create a character page for your Darkwater character, you should follow these simple six steps.

  • 1: Join the site. You can do this via the top bar or by clicking here — It would probably be a good idea to @mail staff in-game to let her know you've applied, if you didn't use the auto-join feature.
  • 2: Once you have an account and are a part of the site, hit the button at the bottom. Please use the character name you use to log-on to Darkwater with. EG: If your character is Bob Roberts but you log on with the name 'Bob', you'll want to enter 'Bob' in the space provided.
    • NOTE: You'll probably want to keep reading before you actually make the new page, since there's some details you'll want to read.
  • 3: Please fill out the template. DO NOT PUT ANYTHING ELSE INSIDE OF THE [[ or ]]. All other information you want your character page should go AFTER the the ending ]].
    • NOTE: If there's a part of the template that doesn't apply (like if you don't care about working out a Theme Song), enter n/a or some other "nope" thing for that field -- if you leave a blank space, it just ends up looking weird.
  • 4: For a character picture, scroll down to the bottom of the new page you just made and upload the image you want to use TO THAT NEW PAGE. Just toss the picture-link in where the '' URL was, so it'll end up as something like 'Bob2.jpg' (you don't need to include the http nor www stuff if you uploaded the file to the right page).
    • Don't want to bother trying to find a matching RL person, yet you want a picture? Try fiddling around on this website for a bit. Need/Want an image that isn't a famous model? Try here (they have both men and women of all ages, but just the women are on the front page).
    • Are you using someone famous? Please note that we don't do "unique played-by"s here (EG: If you use Scarlett Johansson for your pictures, someone could easily ICly mistake you for other players, depending on how you dress), nor do we retroactively negate actual famous folks (EG: You might end up ICly mistaken for Ms. Johansson herself).
    • Need a primer on how to upload images? Try this page!
  • 5: Please set any appropriate tags (PS: try to recycle tags, so there aren't odd superfluous ones, like if there were shapeshifter, shifter, lycan, lycanthrope, therian, were-thing, etc.. all at once for the same thing). If you just set the race tag, you can click on that and you'll see the Tag Cloud (as seen below) to make sure you didn't just accidentally set yourself up as the only 'sheepshiftre' or something.
  • 6: You're done! Huzzah! Feel free to add a link to your +finger in-game, if you want to.
