Setting Up Your Profile

We want to see your face!

Often times we want to put pictures of our characters or other characters into our avatars, but it makes interacting with you limited. We want to see you and embrace who you are, so we encourage you to use an actual image of yourself in your avatar.

We want to know your name!

It’s also common practice to use a pen name or to go by an online alias. We’d prefer that you use your real first and last name. Again, this just adds another level of personal interaction and communication when we know we’re talking to a real person.
