If this is your first time joining a Jcink site, don't fret! You'll notice a lot of neat little features around to make use of, and all of them are fairly simple to handle. The most common features people are unused to are Jcink's Sub Accounts and their Tagging System.
Tagging is incredibly simple and straightforward. Jcink does provide a button called "TAG" that you can utilize. Otherwise, simply write @Name to tag someone in a post. If the name has spaces, such as "Jonathan of Conté", use brackets around the name: @[Jonathan of Conté]. Tagging will send the account or parent account an alert!
Sub-Accounts are useful, as they connect all of your character accounts directly to your OOC account. Register an OOC account first, then link your character account to it. Under "My Controls" go to "Edit Sub-Accounts" and add in your character account. It makes switching accounts really easy!
** RECENT UPDATE: Concerning sub-accounts, members can now make sub-accounts directly from their OOC/Parent account without needing to log out. This is done on the Edit Sub-Accounts button, you will find a "Register New Account" link just below the list of sub-account names!
As is a growing trend with sites on Jcink and other platforms, the Cbox is no longer the primary source of chatter among site members. Eastern Lands utilizes a Discord channel, which you can join here: Eastern Lands Discord. Please remember that all rules apply to Discord, most especially general courtesy and respect.
Eastern Lands utilizes a Profile Application, in that there is no overly complicated template to post and fill out, hoping that something doesn't end up broken, as DoHTML likes to be so fickle. Instead, everything regarding your character will be filled out in the Edit Profile Info tab of the User Control Panel.
Once you have a concept for a character, your first steps to character creation after reading all of the necessary information provided should be to check the Claims Directory - ensure that the faces, names, fiefs and occupations you desire aren't already taken or in active reserve.
If all of your claims are good to go, then you can begin your application! Simply fill out all of the REQUIRED fields on the User Control Panel - if you can't complete it in one go, just fill the fields with "Coming soon" or the like, as it won't save without something in those fields!
Once your character is complete and ready for review, it's time to post in PROFILE REVIEWS.
Once your character has been reviewed, you will RECEIVE A PM stating one of two things - either Pended: Character Name or Approved: Character Name. If you receive an approved PM, you are ready to go. If you receive Pended, it will include a list of things that require clarification, addition, re-wording, or the like before your character is ready to go! Once these are edited, the character should be ready for acceptance. Once accepted, please fill out your claims.
That said, you are now ready to dive into the glorious world that is Eastern Lands!
