First of all, I think the section of our policy about "Role-Play" should be renamed "POTCO/TLOPO Roleplay" since it pertains specifically to roleplay from those games. I also think a link to the TLOPO Roleplaying Nations page should be added to assist first-time roleplayers or old, returning roleplayers who have no idea what's going on, but I doubt either of these need a request to be done, so onto the main reason for this request.
With the passage of the Vienna Accords, there isn't really a need for actual rules about how roleplay should be conducted anymore. However, since we are a wiki and we still need rules about roleplay page/blog creation to cut down on drama, I suggest that the roleplay rules section of our policy be changed to look like the section of this request in quotations:
"This section of the policy doesn't dictate how roleplay must be conducted, only the rules for how it can be recorded on this wiki. To see the actual rules for roleplay conduct, click here.
The rules of recording Roleplay on the Wiki:
- You cannot create pages for a nation unless you are the ruler of the nation, or have permission from the ruler (this is to prevent false claimants)
- If you are rebelling/conquesting a nation (without the intention of adding it to an already-existing empire), you cannot create a page claiming to be the ruler of that nation, but you can create a page about your rebellion (ex: if you try to rebel in Spain, you can make a page about the “Spanish Liberation Movement” or whatever you want to call it). Once you’ve usurped the entirety of the original nation’s land, then you may create a page claiming to be that nation’s ruler.
- If your rebellion is only a rebellion for independence (ex: Indian independence from Great Britain), once you’ve legitimately conquered the land you intended to take in the rebellion, you can make a page claiming to be the ruler of that newly-independent nation
- You can only make blogs about the results of roleplay battles as long as proof of the result is attached."
