— ACTIVITY CHECK: JULY 1 - 31 —


Hello everyone! Every activity check will run throughout the last 7 days of every month, coinciding with the opening of Reserves.

While you're going through your activity, don't forget to use the survey on the Emotion Tracker if you find any particularly emotional threads!


All proofs must fall within July 1 through July 31. The deadline is Monday, July 31, 11:59 PM CDT.

You can choose one of the following options:

  1. 1 entry + 7 comments.
  2. At least two threads totaling 10 comments.

Here are some clarifications:

  • You can use multiple threads for each option.
  • You count your tag comment, not the other character's (so 7-10 comments made by you).
  • Threads must be at least 2 comments long. No 1 comment submissions!
  • You cannot use threads made within your own entry for either option. All threads must be made somewhere else.

    • Exception: You can use multiple threads made within event/mingle entries without restriction.

  • Your top level comments in event/mingling logs are considered as one giant thread. Threads made in reply to other top levels are considered as different threads.
  • Test Drive threads are not currently usable for activity.
  • Ideally, all proofs must begin within the month to count. However, if necessary we'll accept threads that started within the last seven days of the previous month so long as the majority of tags occur within the current month.
  • All entries and threads that START during the last three days of the month will not count for this month's AC.

    • Exception: Any events that are held during this timeframe are excluded and threads started during these events can be counted.

Anyone who is on Hiatus for more than three weeks is exempt. Do not try to use the hiatus as a way to bypass the Activity Check—we will notice! If you were on hiatus for at least two weeks of the month, you only need to provide half of the amount of proofs.

The list of those who earned a free pass during last December's AC can be viewed here.

If you do not have all of the requirements, you can get a strike if you at least have some proof of activity. This means you will have to completely pass the following Activity Check to clear it, or be forced to drop. Thus you can fail once and then pass the next round to have a clean slate again. However, you must have some proof of activity to qualify for a strike.

The following journals have a strike and must complete this month's activity check to pass:

[personal profile] 10_20_15_5_50
[personal profile] despiteeverything
[personal profile] ortion
[personal profile] pr159
[personal profile] raretalentindeed
[personal profile] ribbonbon
[personal profile] soulsrob
[personal profile] zephlyrt

Here are some copy/paste forms that you can use:

1 entry + 7 comments 10 comments


NEW PLAYERS/CHARACTERS: If you were accepted during the month of the activity check, you only need to give one link for this time only. If you have the full requirements, then go ahead and use the above form. Otherwise, use the following:



If you have any questions about any of this, feel free to contact us.

Hey guys! Just letting you know that I'm gonna be taking a short hiatus until July 25th. I'm out of town, and while I'll be tagging a bit on the Test Drive, it's a bit harder to do game tags. So Fluttershy will be on autopilot for the rest of the week, probably off training her wyvern a bit more.

Anyway, I'll be back to tags when I get back! If you need to reach my, you can PM Shy's journal, or get me on my plurk, [plurk.com profile] usamichan13. See you guys later!

TEST DRIVE: AUGUST

— TEST DRIVE: AUGUST —


Welcome to [community profile] empatheias' test drive meme. This test drive is to help interested players test their characters in the game's environment. We've included a few prompts that incorporate specific elements of the game, though you'll find all of them have a lot of leeway for players to get as creative as necessary. Before diving in, here are a few things we'd like to remind everyone about the game in general:

  • Date reminders. Reserves open Tuesday, July 25 and Applications (Canon | OC) open a week later on August 1st.

  • OC Reminder! Just a quick reminder that original characters are allowed. Those interested can also use the test drive. OCs do not need to be reserved.

  • Emotions are key! Empatheias' premise focuses on how anyone's emotions can affect their environment, be it big or small. While not every emotion will cause a reaction, significant ones definitely will. How much effect a character will have will ultimately be up to you, the player. Also, while we're giving a lot of leeway for the test drive, keep in mind that there will be some limits in the actual game.

  • Everyone has an amulet. All characters have a unique amulet that is specialized for them. It will contain all of their emotion drops and it serves as the network device. Remember, communication is telepathic. Otherwise, it works basically the same.

  • Assume the character is already in the game. Because "OMG WHERE AM I IS THIS REAL LIFE" threads aren't going to be very helpful in this test drive! Plus those are going to happen in-game, anyway. So to make things easier, just assume that they've been around at least a week or so. Still learning the ropes, but not a complete "first day" experience.

  • First or third person allowed. Your threads can be in either first or third, but we'd advise being flexible about it. Remember, these threads can also be used in your application for samples! Reminder: We only require one sample and it can be done in either format. We have also made a change to our sample requirements, so look over the Applications page!

  • Transfer to in-game. If accepted, you can assume threads made on the Test Drive happen in-game if the scenario can reasonably fit. These threads do not count toward AC.

Now with that out of the way, here are some prompts you guys can work from!


Prompts )

For your threads, put the Character Name and the Canon in the subject line to help readily identify them. You're also welcome to use more than one prompt for respondents to choose from. If you have any questions or want to brush up on the game information, refer to the Game Information entry. Otherwise, tag around and have fun!
