here's what you need to join prospect in addition to your examples:

username based on your character's name.
cleaned out journal (old entries privated or deleted).
minimum of one icon uploaded to your journal.
backdated ic contact post (comments enabled).
backdated ooc contact post (screened).
detailed character info (250+ words as blurb, facts, directory, etc.).
get started.
once you've been added, you'll have three days to post something to the friends page. you can post whatever you like, as long as it has comments enabled and allows you to interact with everyone else in the community.
communities are only as great as their members. only interacting with others through customs and private scenes doesn't create an inviting environment. members commenting on posts made to the friends page, posting in pbads looking for new members, and being receptive to members both new and old will go a long way toward making prospect a worthwhile community.

be present on the friends page throughout the month.
reply to the majority of comments on your posts.
keep your friends list up to date.
post to or reply to posts in pbads once in a while.
prospect's monthly update schedule
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 period
8 9 10 11 12 13 14
15 16 17 18 19 20 21 period
22 23 24 25 26 27 28
29 30 31 bonus days!
you'll need to update once per update period (twice a month). we know that seems like a lot but there's only one thing you need to know when it comes to updates: there are no effort or length requirements. all posts made to your journal or townies count as an update, so post as many lyric posts, playlists, random questions, or social media posts as you like.

all updates must be visible on the friends page in order to count.
at least one update needs to have comments enabled per month.
