How do I use thread prefixes?

Thread prefixes exist to clearly mark what kind of roleplay thread you've made, and are only editable by the creator of the thread. The creator of the thread is responsible for prefixing threads appropriately, but if you are a participant and have noticed they have forgotten a prefix, please remind them. When making (or editing) the first post in a thread, you'll see a section to the left of the topic title that looks like this:


If you click it, a small menu will pop up, showing you all our current prefixes:


What does each prefix mean?

OPEN: This thread is open to anyone who might wish to join. You must either include this prefix or PRIVATE.

PRIVATE: This thread should ONLY be posted in by people who are invited. Often these will take place in private areas, such as someone's house, where no one could just 'walk in' on them. You must either include this prefix or OPEN.

EVENT: This thread is part of one of the many site events or holidays! It could be either the main event thread, or a thread that has split off from it. Generally the description of the thread should indicate what event it's part of, and the thread should be tagged with the relevant event tag. Please be sure to also include whether your EVENT thread is OPEN or PRIVATE.

MATURE: This prefix is unique, because it doesn't directly indicate what type of thread, but instead is used in addition to the other prefixes. This means that the thread goes past the PG-13 limit, and is thus only accessible to those over 18 years of age. You must also indicate whether your thread is OPEN or PRIVATE.

FINISHED: When your thread is over, you must mark it as FINISHED. Feel free to remove the OPEN or PRIVATE tag, since threads should not be joined or roleplayed in once finished.

FULFILLED: When your want ad has been finished, please tag it as 'fulfilled' so the want ad can be archived.

ALT: What do 'OPEN' 'MATURE' 'PRIVATE' and 'EVENT' mean in front of a post? What makes a thread private? How do I make a thread mature?
