Use correct spelling, punctuation, and grammar. No netspeak.
You must create a journal for your character. User names should be related to the character you are playing. Example: If you were to play Snape, potions_master would be acceptable.
In your journal entries, you must use first-person [as in, 'I went to class']. In the RP community, you will use third-person ['He ate toast for breakfast'].
Relationships will be allowed, but they must develop realistically. They also must be fairly canon, which means no slash. I have nothing against slash, but since Harry Potter is a children's book, I doubt JKR would have Malfoy shacking up with Harry. No student/teacher relationships, either.
This community is family-friendly. Any posts with ratings higher than PG/PG-13 will be deleted.
Please try to post once every week. We all have a life outside of LJ, but please try to stay active. If you have something come up where you will not be able to post once a week, just drop a note in the OOC community and let us know.
Try and use Brit-speak, since the setting is Britain.
No flaming. Do be polite.
Any posts about the plot, etc. can be made here, as well as any questions.
No advertising unless you have permission from the mod, and only then can it be related to Harry Potter.
Please add Lumos Solem, the OOC community, and all RP members to your friends list.
If you have to leave the game, please let the mod know and think of donating your character's user name and journal to the RP. This way any new member who wishes to have your part will already have a journal set up. This keeps the game moving smoothly.
