To keep up with how active users are and how long users have been here, we have a User Level System. Every level you achieve, you unlock more things to do on the site:
Entry Level Edit
This is for new users who have been here a week or less, and have one character spot. You may however start making minor characters at any level, within the realm of being reasonable, you must be able to maintain a level of activity that will allow you to role play all your characters at some point. So though we don't set a specific limit on minor characters, we will deny new minor character claims if you already have a large number of characters and are not active enough to maintain them.
First Level Edit
This is for users who have been here at least one week and now have two character spots.
Second Level Edit
This is for users who have been here at least two weeks and now have three character spots.
Third Level Edit
This is for users who have been here at least three weeks, now have four character spots available to them, and can now join battles with other Pantheons.
Fourth Level Edit
This is for users who have been here at least four weeks, now have five character spots available to them, can now lead battles of their own as well as challenge for positions of power within your Pantheon. If there are open Rollback spots, this is also the level that you can nominate yourself for consideration for these spots.
Fifth Level Edit
This is for users who have been here at least five weeks, and now have six character spots available to them. This is the highest level a user can obtain aside from Rollbacks, Administrators and Bureaucrats. At this level you can also go up for admin spots, if you are already a rollback and there is an open spot on the administration team.
