I've been on multiple RP forums, and one thing I've been on a few of them where there are places dedicated to posting characters you've created, but don't really have anything set in stone for writing a setting. You post a thread with your character(s), and people can approach you about starting a RP with you and your character. Is there any kind of policy for that on BMR? Or is the general rule to put characters in your interest check threads?

Most members here place them within their version of a journal within the Journals, Apologies & Absences forum. There has been enough people inquiring about such a depository that I can look into creating a spot for one dedicated to it. I'll get back to you in a few days.
Thanks for the reply! Something like that is by no means necessary, but I do like the idea of a dedicated place for people to post their characters.

I figure it would fall under whatever request section people still did.

But then again, I get the impression of maybe wanting to keep things more organized or separated by multiple posting which isn't allowed back to back-to-back in the request thread due to 24 hour rule limit.

I store some of my character ideas under a single topic in the World Building section of the site. I purposely made a dozen placeholder posts in it as soon as I created it. That way, whenever I add in a new entry, it won't bump the thread up to the top as it would just count as an edit. The thread is mostly for my own use, and not for other people to peep at. That's why I dont want it getting bumped.

You can always just link to your various characters in a generalized RP request. Or include them in spoilers so you aren't throwing walls of text and pics at people when they check out the request

To bring everyone up to speed, (Murdergurl has the right idea), we will be adding a Character Depository and it will share the World Building forum. We are currently working on the rules for it so that it is treated purely as a character sheet depository and not abused as an additional RT section. There will be an announcement going out in the coming days.

Teaser: The DT will be rolling out some character sheet templates for you guys within the next few weeks as well. They will be pinned atop it's respective forum for use.
