Finding Your Way Around
We understand that there might be quite a bit to take in when you first stumble across Poisoned Youth! This walkthrough serves as a quick, step-by-step run-down, complete with links, to all the important things you should do and/or read upon joining! If you're new and looking for a guide to get you started then you've come to the right place and welcome! We hope you like what you've seen so far and don't hesitate to ask any questions in the cbox!

Your staff team presently consists of: Tany (Creator / Admin).

First, if you've already checked out our Rules & Regulations then great, you're off to a good start! If you haven't please do so now and then pop back over here when you're done! You probably noticed the STOP! alert first and foremost in our regulations. As stated, please begin your journey here by creating yourself an OOC Account! This will act as your parent account and is required for a number of reasons:

• Allows the staff to contact you easily rather than guessing which character account to PM.
• Lets you link your character account(s) to one host account for easy switching.
• Hosts all of your member-specific awards that you can win through contests and participation!
• Helps fellow members remember you by name as well as which character(s) you play.
• Opens the potential to be turned into a staff account if you apply/get hired here at PY!

To get your OOC Account sorted into the appropriate member group please introduce yourself in the cbox! If a staff member isn't presently online you are more than welcome to PM one of them, prod them on discord, or easily post HERE and they will get to it promptly! You do not have to wait for this account to be 'sorted' before making your character!

Next, and if you haven't already, please check out our PREMISE! We are an alternate universe, member-driven Harry Potter roleplay set in present time where we erase canon characters to allow an open environment.

Once you've got a grasp on our purpose and regulations, next is deciding what sort of character you're interested in playing! We accept characters from ages eleven and up, but primarily students! We accept professors and school staff if you're looking to play an adult! Simply log out of your OOC and register an account for your character with proper punctuation and spacing. I.E: First Last: Harry Potter.

When you're ready to start your application, simply head over to the Sorting board and copy/paste the STUDENT APPLICATION or the PROFESSOR APPLICATION into a new thread! Be sure to follow the instructions at the top of the application thread and if you have any trouble with filling out the application, whether the code is giving you trouble or you've erased part of it, don't hesitate to ask for help! Make sure you've filled out all the bits accordingly so we don't have to pend you and prolong the process. (Aren't sure what to make? Make someone's day and grab a WANTED AD or peep our RATIOS!)

Once approved, your application will be moved into the SHIPPER board for you to start plotting with other members, or you can just go out and start an open thread!

Be sure to visit our CLAIMS and fill out the Roster and Playby claim! If you wait too long or skip this altogether there is a high chance you may relinquish your hold on any faces/jobs/positions to want! Important! Some things will require you to spend Sickles to earn, which you can read more about when we get that program up and running!

That completes our guide! Mind, there's plenty more to do around the site such as starting a character journal, making your own wanted ad, hanging out with us in the game board, or just getting started with posting! Get out there and get involved - we can't wait to play with you!
