First of all, the Taken Characters List and the Friends Add have been updated. Please go and redo the Friend's Add, even if you've already done it, to make sure you have everybody friended! Also, please check the Taken Characters List and make sure your and your character's information is correct.
Katy-mod and I also went through the rules today and made a few clarifications and changes, as well as changing the word for your applications. We will do the latter on approximately bi-weekly basis to make sure that people are staying up to date with the rules, so please re-read them before putting in anymore applications. You can read our changes here. Only the "game rules" section (the first one) has been altered. If you have any questions, please let us know by commenting either there, here, or IMing one of the mods.
I also finally got through enough of the ShinRa canon to post it. This is what the company has been doing for the last three years and is doing now. You can read that here, along with the slight changes to the "game play" portion of that page.
That's all for now. Please let us know if you have any questions, suggestions, or complaints.
