F.A.Q.


Q. What is FAQ?
A. Frequently Asked Questions.

Q.  How soon after joining can I Role Playing?
A. After you join and have been approved by the Owner. You can tell by looking on the sidebar and seeing if your character is up, meaning you have been approved.

Q. How do I start Role Playing?
A. Start by seeing what's happening. Then you can have you're wolf interact with another. E.g- pretend Saharah is new:
 Saharah padded up to Rasho and smiled.
"Hey, I'm new to the pack. What's up?"
 Rasho smiled and stood up.
"Nothing much. I'm Rasho, who are you?" so on and so forth.
 
Q. Does it matter in which perspective I talk?
A. We use third-person, which tends to work nicely and it is easier if everybody uses it. If you cannot use this or have a question, contact the owner through c-box or the Contact Page.

 Q. I am told not to change the plot, but to stay active!  What am I supposed to do!??!
A. You can still role play, but god modding isn't allowed. For example; if somebody falls in the river:
Do not do control everybody's characters:
"Sako suddenly slipped, falling into the river"
*"Mirage gasped and jumped in after him, swimming  swiftly after him and grabbing him, towing him back to shore."* Then there would be no plot! Instead, let them carry the plot while you help out.
"Sako suddenly slipped, falling into the river"
"Mirage gasped and jumped in after him, trying hard to get near enough to help. She attempted to grab his scruff"
"Sako was suddenly whisked away by the current and came up spluttering."
 This was everybody has a chance to role play and the story continues.

Q. What is God Modding?
A. When you control other Role Players characters. e.g
RP 1: "Saharah howled  in pain as the adder bit her and called out for help. The snake hissed and struck again."
RP 2: "Mirage ran forward and grabbed the snake without getting bitten and killed it. Then dragged Saharah to safety. Saharah ran to the edge of the camp. She called for Sako, bringing him to Saharah."
nobody has a chance to Role Play when this happens.

Q. How can I contact the owners besides the cbox?
A. There is a contact page below the header. If there is trouble, unfairness or anything wrong you can contact us at Mistypackwolves@rocketmail.com. Our email is checked daily and we will respond as fast as possible and deal with the problem.

Q. What is "Spamming" or "Flooding the cbox"?
A. When you fill the cbox yourself with an unnecessary amount of posts. e.g-
"Hi."
"I'm new here."
"Where can I join?"
"Oh."
"Nevermind."
"I'm joining."
"Joined."
Instead of-
"Hi! I'm new here. Where can I join?"
"Oh- nevermind. Joining-"
"I joined! I'll start rping soon."
Flooding also consists of filling the cbox with smiley faces. If you have something to say feel free to say it, but stay considerate =)

Q. Can I be an administrator?
A. Zoraz is the official owner, Kio is the "beta" of the site and owner when Zoraz is gone. You may request to help out with this site and the owners will decide.

Q. What is SSF & SPT?
A. SSF = Story So Far. It can be found beneath the header. SPT = Sketchpack Territory.

Q. What is a header?
A. The main picture of the pack that says "Sketchpack" at the top of the site.

Q. How many wolves can I have?
A. As many as you can stay active with. Five is typical, but whatever you're comfortable with and can role-play.

Q. Can I kill enemy pack wolves without permission?
A. At the end of the post or comment look for the words in parenthesis- the owner will have it written either "(Free For All)" meaning yes, you can without permission, or "(Safe)" meaning none can be killed without permission.

Q. I really want to be alpha or beta! How do I become one?
A. Generally we have two alphas and two betas. If just one alpha or one beta dies, the dead wolf's mate will countinue to be alpha or beta and there will not be another alpha or beta unless the remaining wolf takes a new mate. If both alpha or both betas die, then the alphas or new alphas will choose the new beta or betas.

Q. Alpha, hunter/fighter, healer, what does this all mean?
A. These are the different ranks wolves can hold in Sketchpack.
Alphas rule the pack.
Betas are second in command. 
Healers are the doctors of the pack and don't fight, but they do hunt sometimes, but not often.
Hunter/Fights make up most of the pack. They hunt and defend their territory, as well as train young wolves. They are just general packmembers.
Apprintices are also an option to joiners which are adolescent wolves in training.
 are the females expecting or nursing pups. (Open to joiners)
Pups are the wolves too young to be trainees.

Q. How do I get my wolves a mate and pups?
A. The best thing to is post in the cbox. We often do 'pre-arranged mates' if you want to call it that. Thats how almost every couple on the pack came to be! And example of what to do is-
Kurow: Can anyone think of a good mate for Shenzi? Id really like her to find one.
Zoraz: How about Frazko? They'd make a cute couple :D
Kurow: Sounds good to me! Do you want to have them meet somewhere?
Zoraz: How about in the forest.
Kurow: Great! Lets get started!
At this point, you garenteed to have a mate and eventually pups.

Can I do what I'm doing, and start with one wolf, and then maybe add a lost sibling, and then randomly make a wolf that has nothing to do with the ones I have now?

Ananza -Sriha123- the Huntress

@Blue Spark- As long as you have all the information in the Join space. You'll also need an account instead of Anonymous please.

@Shriha123- Yes, you just need to add whatever new wolf you wish to RP on the Join page whenever you feel like adding another wolf.

Cheers, Sriha123
