Sindome has two types of memberships, one being "Associate Member" and the other being "Club Member". As an Associate Member, you are entitled to play a single character in the game. A donation to Withmore Hope Inc is not required to play. Please remember to follow the Rules of Conduct (@rules).
If you decide to support the game by making a donation to Withmore Hope Inc, your donation will go towards supporting accessible text based gaming, including but not limited to Sindome. Making a donation will grant you 'Club Member' status on Sindome, and entitle you to a membership pad for the length of you membership.
If you choose to make a donation, we will thank you by entitling your character to receive the free usage of an in game pad for the agreed length based on your donation at the time it is made. The size & location of the pad will be determined by the donation.
This apartment will be located in the sector of the city that the admin deems appropriate to your character. Corpies live topside, Mixers in the mix. Remember, having a job topside does not always make you a corpie. Service level jobs are done by Mixers. In the end, it is the admin who decides where your apartment will be, based on what they feel is appropriate to the theme. Your apartment can be moved if your IC situation changes.
MEMBERSHIP PAD INITIAL ASSIGNMENT
To claim your donation pad there are a couple of steps that you need to take in order for us to set you up with your pad. Please make sure you stick to these steps, ensuring that the pad you pick is VACANT and MEDIUM.
1. You must pick and rent a new apartment befitting your character (Mixer -> Red, Corpie -> Green) 2. Find a place that is VACANT and MEDIUM (unless otherwise noted). 3. You must put in an @service-request with the apartment name, number, and cost you paid. 4. In your service request, you MUST state that you are moved out of your old apartment. 5. In your service request, you MUST state the amount you paid out of pocket for the apartment (if this is a situation where you believe you are eligible for reimbursement).
MEMBERSHIP PAD REASSIGNMENT
Sometimes it may be necessary for you to change the location of your donation pad. This could be because of the loss (or gain) of a job topside, or because your character needs to change for IC reasons. We will do our best to accommodate these requests but reserve the right to tell you no if you request too many reassignments.
Please note: We don't reimburse extra weeks rent if the player just wants to move for an extraneous reason (better view, live closer to friends, etc) after pad is already assigned.
MEDIUM REASSIGNMENT PREREQUISITES
1. You must pick and rent a new apartment befitting your character (Mixer -> Red, Corpie -> Green) 2. You must clear your stuff and yourself out of the old apartment. 3. You must put in an @service-request with the old apartment and the new one that the pad should be transferred to 4. In your service request, you MUST state that you are moved out of your old apartment. 5. In your service request, you MUST state the amount you paid out of pocket for the apartment (if this is a situation where you believe you are eligible for reimbursement).
LARGE REASSIGNMENT PREREQUISITES
1. You must find a new, vacant apartment befitting your character (Mixer -> Red, Corpie -> Green) 2. Put in a service request asking that your membership be moved including the apartment you want to move to 3. Staff will assist you in renting the new apartment for one week and close your request 4. You must clear your stuff and yourself out of the old apartment 5. You must put in another @service-request with the old apartment and the new one that the pad should be transferred to 6. In your service request, you MUST state that you are moved out of your old apartment
An admin will process the request, your membership pad will be transferred to the new pad, you will be reimbursed (an admin will pay you) the amount of the week at the new apartment, and the old pad will be reset and available for rental by another player immediately.
To review our new Membership Agreement you can use the @member or @membership command in-game.

Previously donated for perma-pads will be honored. We will not accept new perma-pad donations.
If you break into a perma-pad, you can treat it like any pad in the game and do with it what you will, however, if the character the pad is for dies, then that pad will be cleared out after a few days and returned to the rotation. You cannot simply live in the perma-pad of a dead character, for this reason.
CAN I MAKE A DONATION ON BEHALF OF SOMEONE ELSE?
No, you cannot. Donations are made through Withmore Hope Inc. and are attributed to the person who made them.
