How do I register my account?
Please register using the first and last name of your character in proper case, in the order that is common for their culture. Please remember that in Korea and most Asian countries, they write their names in the order of Surname, Given Name, while western style is Given Name, Surname. OOC names (Scarlett, Jessica, Teddy, etc) are reserved for staff only. Please be aware that if we see an OOC account, it will be immediately deleted.
Additional info for those not completely familiar with jcink: if you have multiple accounts, you can link them all as sub-accounts to your main account (the first account you created) by going to your settings > personal profile > edit sub-accounts.
This will just make switching between accounts much easier; you will only have to select the account you want to switch to from the dropdown menu in your user bar at the top of the page, rather than manually logging in and out every time.
How often are inactive canons/face claims reopened?
Every character requires ONE posts per month, and inactive accounts will be cleaned out (and their claims reopened) at the beginning of each month. The best time to check back to see if the canon character or face claim you want is available again would be after the 5th of every month; in the meantime, we'd love for you to make an original character!
Does Idol-X have to be used in the same group that they are IRL? If I take a canon spot, do I have to use the artist it's based on?
Canon spots do not have to use the same face that they're based on, and faces do not have to be used in the irl corresponding canon. For example, Park Jimin (BTS) can be a backstage person, actor, model or a total civilian, it is completely up to you! All we ask is that if you take a canon spot that you stick to the music style of that canon's based on artist. For example, IU-based canon uses IU's music, but does not use her face claim.
How many characters can I have? Is there a limit?
The first 3 characters you may make without restriction. After your 3rd, you must have at least 2 IC posts on each character account before you may make an additional character. The maximum number of characters any member may have is 30. As long as you can keep all of them active and they are under the max limit, there should be no risk of penalty for having too many characters.
Can my character have a twin? Can they use the same face claim?
The only instance when a face claim may be used for more than one character is in the case of identical twins. If you intend on making a pair of identical twins, we do ask that you keep the staff informed so we are aware of the double use of the face claim. Triplets, quadruplets, or more may exist but may not all share the same face claim. If you wish to make triplets, quadruplets, etc, then two of the set may be identical and share a face claim, but the rest must have a different face claim. There are no restrictions on fraternal twins, triplets, etc.
Is there a word count?
There isn't any! You may write as much or as little as you need for your post, we just ask that you give your rp partner something to respond to.
Can I play a CEO?
No, for the moment, all Entertainment Company CEO positions are considered as NPCs only.
Can my character be in a company that is not one of the three canon companies?
Yes, they may. There is a special group for those, called 'independents'.
Can my character work directly under all three companies?
No, they cannot. We do not have a member group for that and we don’t plan to add one either. Your character may be vaguely associated with all three companies, as a contracted talent or specialist, or part of the media or broadcasting, however they may not be directly linked to all three companies.
What image hosting sites can I use? How do I get a rotating signature/avatar? My image doesn't fit/is too big/needs editing, what can I do?
First and foremost, we ask that you do not use Imgur or Tinypic, as one does not allow image hosting for rp sites, and the other has a tendency to randomly switch out images, some of which may be inappropriate. Imgsafe tends to be unstable and has a history of going down for long periods of time. And we all know what a mess Photobucket can be, I'm sure.
For Image Rotating site, the options we found are:
We ask that you do not use Random Image, as that site hosts on Imgur and thus violates Imgur's TOS.
If you need to resize, crop, or otherwise alter your image and do not have any photo-editing software, then you may ask one of the admins to do it for you, or you may go to Lunapic.com, which offers a variety of photo-editing tools and HQ resizing options. It will also offer to rehost your image on a number of other sites.
How are groups' activities decided? Can I write that X-Group/Artist did X-tour/show/promotion?
Canon groups and artists are roughly based on RL groups/artists, and thus their promotions and achievements are reasonable to compare to the RL groups/artists for the era they are in. Keep in mind, however, that other players also have canon spots in your character's group and it's appropriate to discuss the group's progress with them before finalizing any large plot-provoking decisions on a group.
