To ensure that you read both topics, you must PM (Private Message) either Sakurai (Moderator) or Remilia (me) both the quotes and name it “Application”. While you are Registering your character (in the Registration Category), it will ask you a question “Who did you PM”. Depending on who you PM-ed the quote to, you will either put now Remilia or Sakurai. Do not try to lie and cheat your way through this because we will have a list of who PM-ed us and who did not.

Character Image: Please do not have pictures that will stretch the page, if it does, we will have to ask you to resize the image. If the image contains sexual content (meaning, undergarments are showing, little to no clothing, inappropriate content), we will delete it with no further warning and will have to ask you to find another one. Please use common sense while picking out images; if we find it to be extremely offensive then we will delete it.
