setting
Index was once a small and close-knit community, but the town located on the western side of Washington state has grown in recent years beyond anyone's expectations. It is the ideal place for those who work in Seattle but can't afford the city's high real estate prices, and for others the natural beauty attracts them to the town. And Index truly is a beautiful place - surrounded by thick evergreen trees, tall mountains and glistening rivers and lakes. While weather is typically rainy with overcast skies even this does nothing to take away from the beauty of the town, and it is only highlighted further when the heavy snow graces the town and caps the mountains in winter. To many, Index would seem like a paradise. And yet lurking beneath this visual beauty there is more to this town than anyone might ever imagine...

Current Time in Index, Washington:
rules
PLAYBYS: Sims from the games Sims 2, 3 and 4 are used to visually represent player’s original characters (no characters from within the franchise are allowed). But, you do not need these games to join and roleplay! If you wish, you can post a thread in our out of character / general forum and list as many physical details about your character as you wish. The members of Index will happily try and make a character for you, and you can choose which one you feel best fits your vision.

AVATARS: Avatars should display your characters face clearly and should be at least 200 pixels tall, and 200 pixels wide.

THREADING & POSTING: When threading with multiple characters, it is important that you post only when it is your turn. This can be acheived by taking note of who has posted before you, and remember you are to always post after them. If you were the thread starter, then it is your turn after the final person has joined your thread.

When creating a thread you are required to place a tag before the title. Here are a list of types of thread you can create and how to tag each one:

[Open] Anyone is welcome to join your thread, with no limit on the number of characters.
[Open - #] Anyone is welcome to join your thread, but there is a limit on the number of characters who can join. Replace the # with how many extra characters you will allow to join your thread.
[Private] Only specific characters can join your thread.
[Closed] This tag should be used for threads that only involve your character.

ACTIVITY: To keep threads moving, people are encouraged to post within three days when it is their turn. If you do not post within three days, and you have not asked people to wait for you, it is possible you will be skipped. Keep in mind this is just a suggestion. While we'd love for everyone to be active every day, we understand that real life and other hobbies are just as important, if not more. We want you to be active because you want to be, not because a rule is telling you to be.

MATURITY RATING: Public threads should all be PG. If roleplayers above the age of 18 wish to post content that could be could be considered graphic then it should be hidden from view using the [hide] [/hide] code, which will enable only those in the threads and administrators to view the content.

Welcome To index:
Index was a part of our lives for many years. Personally, I had a lot of fun writing with all of you, and I deeply enjoyed getting to know you all as I did your characters. Even more, I enjoyed following your stories and providing you all with this little corner on the internet where you could express yourselves and wind down from real life.

It is bittersweet, looking back on the years we spent devoted to our little world of fantasy. Because while it was a lot of fun and produced so much laughter as well as tears, I'm am sad to see it end. Though I am eternally a fan of all that you have written and am glad to have shared this experience with all of you.

Unfortunately, the inevitable has come to pass, and real life has snatched us all way to begin the next chapters in our lives, which sadly does not involve Index. While I do know some of us likely won't even see this message, I just wanted to thank all of you for the friendships we shared and the fun times we had contributing to eachothers stories.

Index will always be left up for you to read and reminice. However, I do not intend to keep our URL and AD removal paid for beyond 2018. This means, when these subscriptions expire fall/winter of this year, Index will revert back to it's original/free URL. You're more than welcome to save the link if you ever wish to visit Index beyond 2018.

Furthermore, new accounts will no longer be welcome here, so registering is officially closed. However, I have no intention of disallowing past members from logging in and posting. While I know this is unlikely, I also know that I have intended to wrap up my characters stories here, whether or not they're actually read. So you are also welcome to do so if you feel the need.

Slack will always be open as well. So if you ever feel the urge to say hi you're more than welcome to. I have used Slack for more than just Index for quite a while now, and have no intention of removing Index from my active chats.

If any of you wish to keep in contact with old writing buddies, feel free to contact me there. I have no intention of quitting writing, or even abandoning my characters. With or without Index writing is in my blood and I can't imagine life without it. And I'm more than willing to continue sharing this wonderful hobby with the wonderful people of Index, even if Index is no longer what inspires us.

To anyone that I may not talk to or write with again, I wish you well in life, and hope you cherished our silly and sometimes serious RP forum as much as I did. Good luck and good fortune to you all.

(If you wish to comment with your own farewells, feel free to login. A thread has been made for that purpose. <3)
