Check which characters are open, then post in the community who you would like to be.  If it gets approved, then create a journal for your chosen character. Also have an icon with your character on it. If you need help with anything just let me know and I'll be glad to help.  You can make up things, just not anything unrealistic. And remember, things are taking place now. School hasn't started yet, I'll let you know when it does.  You must have AIM to participate in this community. Create a screen name for your character and add the other characters to your buddy list. (Get on there as much as you can, please)  Add ALL the other character's LJ names to your friends list regardless if they're actually friends or not.  Post all entrys in your character's journal and try to act like your character as much as possible.  If you're posting out of character then put OOC in the subject of your entry.  Please don't use your journal for any other RPG community than this one, it would get way confusing with comments and such.  UPDATE YOUR JOURNAL AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK OR YOU WILL BE REPLACED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
