Important! Template and Sample

Recommended Posts

For those of you that haven't ever done a "Want Ad" before, they're kind of a nifty thing! Say you need a rival, best friend, or a love interest, and you have an idea for the character, but you don't want to write for them yourself. You can post a Want Ad, like the one below, asking for someone to take on that character for you! 

If someone wants to take on a Want Ad character, they will have to complete an application and any fitting reserves and claims, just like any other character, but they will already have a significant portion of the character planned out for them, and someone ready to role-play with them.

Accepting a Want Ad is kind of like accepting a Canon. You have to abide by the rules (within reason) of the person who placed the Want Ad for that character since they are the ones who had the initial idea for the character. So if you can no longer write for the character, or wish to go a different route, it is your responsibility to talk to the owner of the Want Ad and figure out if you need to return the character to them.

IMPORTANT NOTICE!
As was stated with your application, unfortunately the way things work with coding in IP Board, all CSS has to be done on the back end. This means that you cannot create your own HTML templates for posts, we have to do it for you. Since we're not about to edit the CSS for every single person so they can have a unique Want Ad, we're stuck with using one uniform set.Please be understanding of this, and just use the code below if you're going to use a code at all.

Alternatively, you can post an ad just using the text editor and not worrying about the HTML coding. That is completely your call.

SAMPLE

Just give the gist of the character's information here. You can organize it however you'd like.

Edited Template:

CODE:
<center>
	<table id="want_template">

                </td>
			</tr>

To add an extra person to your want ad, in case of multiple characters needed, please add the following code before the "</tbody>" tag.

					Full Name Here
				</td>
			</tr>
			<tr>
				<td colspan="2" id="want_subtitle">
					General Information
				</td>
			</tr>
			<tr>
				<td colspan="2" id="want_body">
					<div id="app_floatright">
						<img alt="240x240" src="http://placehold.it/240x240">
					</div>
Just give the gist of the character's information here. You can organize it however you'd like.
