There really isn't any order in the RP section because no one's really used it. Our RP section is very laxed.
OOC thread is strictly for Out of Character context and the possibility of questioning if anyone wants to start an RP. If you want to start up a sign in thread, go ahead and post in the OOC section, click "add new thread" and post what you want to do.Then after you feel like you have a substantial amount of people, you can add a thread in the RP section.
The actual Role Playing thread is strictly for In-Character content. If you want rules, you make your own rules. Your RP, your rules. The end.
If you look at past RP's, all the rules are listed in the OOC section and in the start up thread. No one's complained about it so we never had to do strict RP rules. Everyone just follows the same board rules for the entire forum.
We don't need to sticky threads especially if it is a new thread because it will be at the top of the boards anyway. But if you really want it to be sticky-ed just ask one of us [mods] and we'll do it for you. But for the RP section, it won't be necessary.
I hope I've answered your questions. If you have anymore, just let us know.
