Staff & Members

For questions about the staff and members of the site.

Who is the cat in people's avatars?

That's Starlight Academy's lovable mascot, Polaris! When an account displays this avatar, it means they've yet to set a personal avatar.

What should i do if I'm leaving?

If you're leaving the site (for vacation, for good, because you're ill, because you're busy), please post in the coming and going forum to let people you're RPing with (and the staff!) know that you'll be gone, and hopefully when you'll return. If you're quitting for good, just mention that you don't plan on returning and the staff will archive your characters (although they can always be recovered if you change your mind).

What does it mean if a player is inactive?

Starlight Academy does not delete player accounts who have made at least one post. Instead, those who are no longer active on the site are set to inactive status. On the default skin, their names show up white rather than the default green. The members of an inactive character are archived, their claims are removed, and any plot pages, businesses, etc are archived.

Inactive status can be removed by posting in the restoration center and asking to be made active again. Players are encouraged to restore any characters they might want to return to playing at the same time.

Members are marked inactive after A) one month with no posts (in character or otherwise, hiatus posts count), or B) shortly after they've indicated they're leaving. As long as a player makes at least one post a month (even if it's just an update to their away saying they're still gone), they won't be archived.

Long term members seeking to retire from active roleplaying but remain around the community are encouraged to check out retirement.

ALT: How do I stay active? Do you do activity checks?

What do rangers do?

Rangers are members of the site who help the staff, either by helping the staff running events (event rangers), or by helping them look over new applications (app rangers). They share the same name color on the site.

How do I become staff?

Starlight Academy does not put out moderator applications or signups, but instead reaches out to perspective mods directly. The ranger position does have infrequent application periods, but on occasion rangers may be directly approached.

Prospective mods should be active, helpful in the discord, contribute to the site (filling want ads, getting involved with new members, adding to the wiki, posting in the lounge, etc) and generally go above and beyond as members.

Mods will generally have been on the site at least 4 months and need to be 18+.
