(OR, A GLORIFIED INFORMATION PERMISSIONS POST, FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE)
Since it has come to the attention of your mods that we have a lot of characters who like to get into everyone else's business: to facilitate this and eliminate the constant WHAT CAN MY CHARACTER KNOW ABOUT YOUR CHARACTER posts from each individual character--
We present to you this post for all your busybody needs. Here's how it's going to work:
1. Comment with your characters and their usernames using this form (one for each character, please!):
- PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE: Specify the general information that could be known by anyone and everyone (if they care) for each character.
- SPECIAL KNOWLEDGE: Specify, if applicable, any specific juicy tidbits that more information-sensitive characters like spies or detectives would be able to dig up.
- POP CULTURE PHENOMENON?: Characters who are famous, infamous or otherwise part of popular culture will be listed in the main body of this post; so whether your character is a famous singer, murderer, captain, etc.--please note if you think they'd be eligible!
- If you need to update the information, just reply to your original comment. If the thread gets too cluttered, a mod may ask you to consolidate and move all the information to a new comment, deleting the original for easier perusal.
2. If you have a character who'd like to use this knowledge, and you aren't sure from the information given whether or how they'd obtain it--simply ask the original poster in their thread. Easy as pie.
