Hey, I'm rather new to this site. I've gone over the rules and the FAQ but there is still one question that I have about the use of templates in roleplays. I apologize if this has already been answered and I just missed it. Am I supposed to tell the maker of the template that I'm using it every time I have a thread with the character? I don't mind doing that but I'm worried that I would be flooding them with requests to use their templates, because I make a lot of threads for these characters. Again, I apologize for asking if this has already been answered. I'm just trying to get the hang of it.
m0ri0123, no you don't have to link to every thread, just one is sufficient. Many people like to post a link and afterwards put something along the lines of "also using for this character's other threads!". Just make sure you link us to a thread and not just the board, and you're good to go!
When using our resources, we ask that you let the author know that you are using their work by posting on the support thread for that resource.NEW! When using a posting template from Adoxography, make sure to link to the exact (not the forum URL, character application, or character account) thread(s) in which the template is being used (even if it is not accessible to guests). If you do not, we will only assume you are not abiding our rules or the rules of the author of the work you are using (after the third time of being told to link to the exact thread, you will receive a ban for one week). Due to this rule, we assume that if you are posting on a support thread voicing that you are using that work, we expect there to be a link to the work then and there, so make sure you are already using the work when posting so the author and staff can see it. It may result in a staff PM and/or a ban if we see the work being mistreated.
So yes, please let the template creator know that you're using their content by linking to the post where it appears. I wouldn't say that you need to do this for every thread on the same forum -- the first instance should be fine.
