|The Harbinger Warning Thread|
|Warnings to post in teams will be announced here, by the warning moderators. It is strongly advised that everyone watches this thread and checks it regularly to make sure that no one suffers.|
As mentioned in the Rules thread under the Character Absence section, a character is given three days to post, starting at the moment the team member before them posts, which begins their turn.
In here, the Warning Thread, the warning mods will post warnings for those who are on their third day and have not yet posted, and also for those who have breached their time limit and get a Harbinger death warrant. Those who have been marked for Harbinger death will have "DEATH" written after their character's team, name, and user.
This way, it will be easier to take a look at who is getting a warning for both the users and administrators, and to send out the Harbingers. You can read more about Harbingers here.
For those who do not completely understand the Warning system, here it is, broken down:
23rd: First day; safe.
24th: Second day; safe.
25th: Third day; warning for User B that will be announced here.
26th: Fourth day; User B's character that failed to post is killed by a Harbinger*.
*Those who have not yet posted their first post in their respective teams will simply be taken out of the team instead. However, this will still go into their record as a Harbinger attack.
Posting after a death warrant has been issued is strictly forbidden.
Approximately ten minutes are allotted after the death warrant has been reached (due to time differences), but no longer than within that time frame are you allowed to post. Do not chance going over the forum time, as your characters' lives may be at stake.
If they are posted any later than that, the post will be deleted, and the member will be punished with a harbinger attack that cannot be stricken from their record, if not a general warning issued.
This is to ensure that there are NO confusions regarding time zones, so that will no longer be an excuse for not keeping up with posting.
Please note that the times of Warnings are based off of Epidemic Johto's forum time, which everyone's should be set to Mountain Time, also listed as Denver, Edmonton UTC 07:00 in Preferences.
NOTE: This ONLY applies to the individual who hasn't posted on time, and not the rest of the team.
If, for some reason, are unable to regularly check the Harbinger Warning Thread, please let us know. You are still responsible for keeping up with your own teams, but we may be more inclined to be lenient if you have a valid reason for not being completely aware.
List of those who cannot check this thread regularly:
Have a rest of a good day and survive the Epidemic; that is, if you can.
"Make sure to read the warnings carefully and be diligent in your posting. The safehouse doors are closed to those whose names are marked with "Death" beside it whether they've already met their fate or have yet time to rewrite it. Those seeking the Safehouse after the Death warnings have been posted will need approval of an Admin."
