In order to better keep track of how active a user is and how long they have been here we have devised a new system of levels. Once you have achieved each level, it unlocks more of the site that you are able to participate in.
This is for new users who have been here a week or less, and have one character spot. You may however start making minor characters at any level, within the realm of being reasonable, you must be able to maintain a level of activity that will allow you to role play all your characters at some point. So though we don't set a specific limit on minor characters, we will deny new minor character claims if you already have a large number of characters and are not active enough to maintain them.
This is for users who have been here at least one week and now have two character spots.
This is for users who have been here at least two weeks and now have three character spots.
This is for users who have been here at least three weeks, now have four character spots available to them.
This is for users who have been here at least four weeks, now have six character spots available to them. If there are open Rollback spots, this is also the level that you can nominate yourself for consideration for these spots.
This is for users who have been here at least five weeks, and now have eight character spots available to them. This is the highest level a user can obtain aside from Rollbacks, Administrators and Bureaucrats. At this level you can also go up for admin spots, if you are already a rollback and there is an open spot on the administration team.
