This is very, very important. When writing a character into the database, it is important to know where to place specifc information. It seems that there are already a couple of posters who have misplaced vital information, which does, in all honesty, cause the page to become cluttered and hard to read for some users, and that's why I am making this post. I want everyone to know exactly where to place certain information. With that being said, here is a brief rundown of how your user setup should look when you write a character bio into the character database:
This is in place mostly for a brief summary of what your character looks like, acts like, and what weapons/powers he/she has, had, or will have in the future. This is generally NOT a place for you to discuss your characters' history, and if you place it here, it will become difficult for those who are trying to get some brief information. To avoid giving your character a spotty physical and mental description, try to avoid unessecary information in this location, and opt instead to just say, you know, what the character looks like, acts like, what kind of attitude he or she has, what kind of annoying habits or personality traits that person has, et cetera. Be brief and to the point.
This, technically, should be where all other information about your character should be placed, which means that this should probably be the larger out of the two boxes you fill. You'd write here about your character's relationship to other characters, his past, present and possibly future, what your character has done and now others feel about him...and all of that sort of stuff. Any other neat little details can go here too, though that's more of a thin line since some useless details could probably go under "Description," hehe. You get the idea. Put all of the junk you wanna write about in HERE. Not up THERE. In HERE. Get it? Got it? Good! :)
That's about all. Sorry 'bout being so strict, but...yeah. :P
Virtue mine honour
