    Photos Star Wars Image Claims/Playbys

    IMAGE CLAIM RULES AND FAQ

    What is an image claim?

    By making an 'image claim' you are claiming a particular picture or image to represent your roleplaying character, in their avatar and/or signature images. Think of your image claim as the person you are casting to play your character. It could be an actor, a character from a video game, a comic book or any other image that best represents your roleplaying character.

    How do I make an image claim?

    Make a post in this thread stating the character name and the name of the image claim. For example:

    Dasquian Belargic - James Callis (actor)
    Morgan Evanar - Guy Pearce (actor)


    Your claim will then be added into your user profile by a member of the board staff.

    Can people take my claim away from me without my knowledge?

    If a character has an image claim and ZERO IC posts after two weeks, you can nab their claim. Otherwise, email, PM, etc. The image claim hoarding is especially a problem when people register an account, make the post for a claim, and then do nothing for years.

    How can I check if my claim is already taken?


    Head over to the Members List and enter the name of your claim in the 'Image Claim' field. Press 'Search Now' and the forum will tell you if your claim has already been taken!

    What if my claim has already been taken?

    If you discover that someone else is already using the claim that you wanted, click on their profile and first check which RP setting their character is a part of. If someone is roleplaying their character in a different setting to you, it's fine for you to make the same claim as them! If they are in the same setting, send them a private message to ask if you can share the claim.

    If an account is inactive (i.e. no longer posting) and does not respond to your private message, go ahead and post your claim in this thread.

    How will I know if my claim has been dealt with?

    Once your image claim has been added to your account, your post will be removed from this thread and archived. The 'Image Claim' field will appear in your user profile.

    I haven't registered my account yet. Can I claim an image in advance?

    No, claims can only be made for registered accounts.

    Can I have multiple claims for one account?


    Each account can have only one image claim attached to it.

    Can I use a main actor from one of the Star Wars films as a playby?

    Put simply - no. If your playby gets cast in a subsequent SW film your claim is grandfathered in and you may keep it. Aliens in the movies you MAY use, as there aren't many images of the different SW species, but they have to be different characters from their movie character.

    I made my claim but now I need an avatar/signature. Will you make one for me?

    Post a request here, in the Star Wars RP Planning and Discussion Forum. Or, there are more than a few members who have avatar/signature request threads, so you are more than welcome to post up a request in their threads.

    NEW RULE: What if my claim hasn't been entered yet, and I want to change it?

    Make a new post in this thread, stating you are dropping #Claim1 and picking up #Claim2. Then please find your original post and edit it to say you have changed your claim in a newer post. That way when someone goes through the backlog and enters the claims they don't have to do yours twice ... or more than twice.

    I have another question that you didn't answer!

    Please post it in this thread and we'll answer it for you!

    I am working on entering the backlog of claims into the database. If a claim has less than 5 posts in three years it's likely I'm not going to enter it. Please feel free to reclaim for an account if you feel it's been missed and you're still around and going to use it.

    Just FYI I am about to move all the posts prior to my “all done” post. If your account is there and you still want your claim you’re going to have to repost it. Those accounts have hardly any posts and they are inactive as far as I could tell. If one is yours and you are active then repost the claim.
