  1. Those of you who have not encountered my over-emotional speeches before, welcome to what will be the first of many! Today marks the six month anniversary of Tally's return, also known as the moment I was truly ready and strong enough to return to being Mousie. And I had my fears, a lot of them. It wasn't the first time I'd thought about it, it wasn't the first time I talked to Lily about it, and it wasn't even the first time we tried it. I was very afraid that everything would fall apart, and worse---that I would be shunned by those I used to love and consider close friends before we drifted apart. You all proved me so beautifully wrong. I cannot thank all of you enough for the support and love and energy you've all put into helping Tally return with the same strong and loving community it was always known for. Whether you're new to us, or old hands, I feel we've done an amazing job of fostering a community that is inclusive and supportive. Every day in my life is better than the last, knowing that I have you guys there. I'm so proud of what we've got here, and the way that you all uphold the community values (even though I only officially posted those last night!). You make Tally a joy to admin, a creative outlet that challenges me in the best ways. Like all communities, we've had our struggles---and they've not broken us. We'll go forward as we always have, using each struggle to find ways to be better, to continually improve who we are as a group. I'm proud of every one of you, new and old members. Current and former members. Some of you I've known since you were in school and been on the other side of the computer screen with a full heart as you made your way through life to become adults that I am so incredibly privileged to know. Some of you I've only known months or days, and I'm so excited for the stories we'll create together. We're six months in, and this is only the beginning. If you know me, you know I'm in for the long haul. Tallygarunga will be around for a long, long time to keep making more awesome. Together, we'll keep collecting friends and new family, writing wonderful and dramatic stories, and even those of us who can't be active will always be Tally family. A special mention to Lily, my glorious bestest friend and fellow admin, and to Chromie and Kai for taking up the mod mantles when duty called. Without you guys, none of this would be possible. Especially the hundreds of thousands of times you guys stop me having full-scale meltdowns (usually over coding that won't behave). I love you guys so much. Thank you for following me this far. We are Tallygarunga, and we regret nothing. Love always, Your Mousie.
  2. Community Values What makes Tallygarunga special? It's our community, and the values outlined below are the key to who we are. These are the values that we live by, that we expect our staff and members to uphold, and that make us proud to be part of this community. That all members of the community should feel respected as individuals, and none should be feel uncomfortable in being who they are. Tallygarunga is a safe place, an online home-away-from-home. Bullying, excluding, and general nastiness between members will not be tolerated. We support all individuals for who they are, and encourage them to express themselves freely. We want all members to feel comfortable and a full part of the community, whether they've been around for a decade or just days. That all members of the community should feel no guilt for having a life outside of the forum. This is not a job, it is a hobby that should be enjoyed. No member should ever feel guilty for being unable to post in-character, whether that be due to chaotic life circumstances, or just not having the mental space to write. Though we do ask that members who are unable to post for long stretches of time keep us updated, this is purely to ensure characters and threads do not get archived before their time. Also, we care and worry about our members if they suddenly fall off the internet. A quick message to let us know you're simply unavailable can make a big difference, and you never need feel bad about having to take a break. That all members of the community should have the opportunity to be involved in the roleplay. Although some plots may be limited to certain characters, the board's over-arching plot will never be closed off. Any member who requests a part for their character will have the opportunity to be involved. Systems are set in place so that members who engage with the community, post to/start open threads, and post in Splotting topics will find thread partners. That members who have formally left the community should feel welcomed back if they choose to return. Just as no member should feel guilt about being unable to post, we respect that life is not always compatible with being on a roleplay forum. Members who return after falling inactive will not be shunned, and members who are no longer a part of the IC community are welcome to remain part of the OOC community indefinitely. The only exception to this rule is members who have previously been removed from the community due to behavioural issues. That no reasonable creative concept should be denied without discussing how it could possibly be worked to fit in with the Tallygarunga canon. We believe that creativity is a gift, and if the concept is plausible within the canon, we should allow players to explore the opportunity that creates. When ideas are not fully suited to Tallygarunga's setting, conversations should be had about how it could be tweaked to make the idea work. Our aim is to incorporate the ideas that excite our players into the rich world we have already woven. That no character application should be denied without staff taking every effort to help the player create a complete character that is suited to the roleplay. We do not deny applications. Characters that do not fit with the setting, do not provide enough information, or require further development will be approached with constructive commentary from a staff member on how the character could be worked to best fit within the Tallygarunga community. Only when a player gives up on completing the character is an application ever shelved unsorted. That all members of the community should be trusted to know their own limits and abilities. When it comes to character limits, thread limits, and other aspects of roleplay that are often heavily restricted through rules, we believe that members should know what they are able to handle and act accordingly. Some people are capable of roleplaying several characters effectively, while others find a small handful easiest to manage. The same goes for number of threads happening at once. Only when it is apparent that a member is overloading themselves and struggling, will staff step in to suggest ways the member can reduce the load. Otherwise, whatever you can handle is perfectly acceptable. That all members of the community should communicate effectively with each other to establish their expectations, wants, and needs in roleplay. In a similar vein, as long as all participants in a thread are happy and enjoying their roleplay, staff will see no reason to step in and moderate the size, frequency, content, or any other aspect of posts. This is why the community has no set word count, activity requirements (excepting teaching staff), or other such rules. Keep open communication between yourself and those you thread with, be clear about what you want and need as a roleplayer. And have fun. That all members of the community should be able to explore themes of interest to them through roleplay, while respecting the potential triggers of other members. Our content rating is 18+, or 333. This means that no content is strictly off-limits, though we do ask that any sexual content be conducted privately. If you are aware of potential triggers that may arise in your threads, we ask that you do tag and warn for them, to ensure that members who may be affected do not accidentally read across it. If you have a trigger that is not often recognised as a trigger, please let staff know so that steps can be taken to help members mark and warn for that content. That all members of the community should feel comfortable approaching a staff member with any concern, big or small. Understand that you deserve to be happy here, and that you are worth having your problems addressed. Any staff member may be approached, and we make an effort to have staff of varying personality types to ensure there is someone you may feel comfortable with. Even if the problem sounds silly, we may be able to take steps to reduce it---or (if needed) just listen while you vent what's on your mind. That staff members called on to resolve disputes within the community should do so in a manner that is understanding, compassionate, and unbiased. When conflict resolution is required, staff will always act in a way that is confidential, fair, and logical. Our aim is to find a peaceful resolution for all parties wherever possible, so that the community can move on stronger and happier than before. Although staff often forge strong bonds with other players, these bonds should never inform what "side" a staff member is on. Members should feel confident that they will be listened to and all parties treated fairly. Above all, that Tallygarunga is a community first and foremost---and a roleplay second. Counter-intuitive as it sounds for a roleplay board, we have worked hard to foster a strong community spirit that accepts, encourages, supports, and loves each one of its members. We choose to put that community first, as we believe that it is our OOC connection that makes for more excellent IC fun. It allows us to trust in each other, and to play IC conflict without worry, it allows us to explore deeper themes and create IC chaos without fear of OOC interference. It also means that no matter whether a member has the ability to actively roleplay on the forum or not, they are (and always will be) a member of the Tallygarunga family for as long as they choose to be. We are, at our core, a solid community that enjoys writing together.

    Howdy!

    Hi Nikki! Awesome to have you with us! I always love when members come in with new and exciting ideas, I can't believe there are fools out there who would turn down such a well-thought out character. Ah well, their loss is our luck! If you need any help with anything, just ask! Even if there's no staff actively on, there's usually someone who can answer questions!
  4. We love you, darling! You're one of the family here, and you don't owe us posts to be part of it. So please, don't feel bad that you haven't been able---and when you do have time around gross adultness, come chill with us! You're always, always, ALWAYS welcome. And when we get a miracle moment, waffles in the city. ❤️

    G'day!

    Welcome! Awesome to have you here, and nothing wrong with a short introduction! Looking forward to seeing your characters and getting to know you!
  8. Welcome Kai to the staff team! As part of our response to the feedback, we've decided to create a staff position dedicated to ensuring that even the most shy members can easily find character connections and plots that make sense. For his ability to come up with ideas on the fly, his enthusiasm for threading with absolutely everyone, and generally just being a wonderful positive element in the community, Kai will be filling this role. It's a bit of an experiment, hopefully one that will make Tally forever more awesome! And if it succeeds, we'll definitely be looking to bring more people into the role as the community grows. Congrats, Kai! Welcome to a life of serving our most favourite people -- the Tally community! ❤️
  9. Ohhaiiii! Yes, obviously a spam-bot. Ban hammer for you! Ahaha. Welcome back to the crazy. We have Pepsifood!

    out of hiding

    Hokay! So! Aiden is likely to know Iris and Mairead as they're in the same house, and Gerry at least by reputation. What they know of him will depend on how much time they spend in the library. I kind of like the idea of Aiden having a hopeless crush on someone impossible (Gerry would be hilarious), and he's probably more likely to have a female best friend than a male one. Possibly an eternal "isn't she your girlfriend?" situation, and who knows what could happen from there. Aiden is kinda dumb. If Gerry was to get into some epic trouble, perhaps she could be sentenced to detention with Adele? That wouldn't be awful for either of them lol. XD Maybe a fight in the library? Something like that could be fun. I await your ideas!
  11. Ooo! Aiden Longhurst -- is a fifth year Flinders, and if she's taken up being more serious about school, she'd see him always buried in a book about medical things. He's a bit of a nerd, very quiet---and known behind his back as "trauma kid" due to the fact that his mother died when he was young, his father is in prison, and his brother is in a coma. He needs people to help him be more... social. Less of a giant nerd. Ultimately he's a good kid though, who likes to behave. Adele DeVylissea -- Tally librarian. A bit fearsome and very well known for her attitude... of which there is MUCH. She occasionally fills in for History of Magic, complains about it the entire time. She's actually a good teacher, and an excellent librarian, but she likes to pretend that she doesn't care. She pretends not to care about a lot of things. Alan Burdett -- the headmaster, he knows most of the students by name at least. She'll have seen him out mending stuff on the school property, or being marched back to his office by Audrey to do paperwork. He hates paperwork. He does also encourage students to come see him directly if they need help for any reason, so it wouldn't be entirely out of the question for Eugenia to walk into his office for advice on whatever is bothering her.

    Hey all!

    Hello Vane! Welcome! Teaching English in Japan sounds amazing. Good luck with all the preparation/the move itself! It's great to have you here as well, a little piece of Australia you can access while off on your adventure. XD If you need any help, just nudge any of us---even if there's not a staffie around, most of the crew knows what's up. And if you need quick access to help, there's the discord community as well. ❤️
  15. Vildea! Glad you decided to join us! If you are indeed a robot, you're clearly sentient enough to be one of us... I mean, I'm totally not seven cats on a keyboard... who said that? Was it Lily? I bet it was Lily. In which case, my secret is out. I'm gonna guess there's about as many RPs set in Norway as there are in Australia, cause that's pretty much why Tally exists. I was upset that when people did set things in Australia they did it wrong. Soooooo wrong. It's great to have you here, and if you need any help, just poke myself or one of the other probably-humans! We're really not sure.
