The Tavern Bulletin Board Guidelines

Recommended Posts

Welcome Jellybeans to the Tavern Bulletin Board. 


Here you will find several quests that take you out of the world of Midgard and help the betterment of the server as a whole. The quests you find here will not require stats and zeny, but rather your own personal skills. As these tasks get completed, the wiki, website databases, forum, and in some cases the social media of JellyRO will improve. I will not lie, a lot of these quests are tasks that I need to have completed, but we felt that you, the players, may be able to assist us in conquering this dragon. In return we'll offer you Auro.  


In the past, we had players assist us in a similar fashion, but it was not focused, so the bulletin board will help us focus that raw energy of yours. There are major items on our wish list that we would like to complete, but do not have the time. Each task should be accomplishable with information and resources that are publicly available, and will not involve any scripts, backend code, or other private data.


Each task will be sorted into one of 6 categories, each with their own subset of requirements. 


To claim a task, simply reply to the thread.


General guidelines

All tasks will follow these basic guidelines.

  • All written or spoken submissions must be in English. 
  • Staff reserves the right to edit all submitted work on tasks as needed, and can use your work for future projects.
  • All submitted work needs to follow the rules, and meet the requirements of their category. 
  • All tasks can only be claimed by 1 person at a time. Once claimed, they are put on hold while the person works on said task. They will have a time limit to complete the task. If done incorrectly or not completed in time, it will be put back on the bulletin board. 
  • Each person can only claim 1 task at a time. 
  • All written work must be able to pass a plagiarism test. We're not asking for you to reinvent the wheel, we just want them to be your own words and thoughts. 
  • Each task has a time limit of roughly 2 weeks to complete the task, after this time has allotted the task will be considered not completed and will be put back on the board. You can reclaim it again, but after the 3rd time, you will no longer be allowed to claim that task. 



Some tasks may only require you to get the footage, while others would require you to edit it. These requirements cover both. 


  • Make sure you use the Replay recording feature in-game. You will need to submit the Replay files afterwards.
  • Videos should be to the point. Try to focus on being active and minimize idle time.
  • Videos that are edited need to have some indication that they are JellyRO, such as putting our logo somewhere.
  • If videos have music, it must not be copyrighted. Any video with music that is copyrighted will be rejected. The exception is in-game music.
  • Each video must be longer than 30 seconds but less than 10 minutes. If the replay is reaching 10 minutes, stop it, and start another.  

Quest Guide


These tasks should be designed to help someone complete a given quest no matter their level of experience with RO. 


  • Guide must have requirements listed at the top: level, class, previous quests, items, zeny, etc. 
  • There must be at least 1 picture showing the general idea of the quest, whether it shows where to start or the reward at the end.
  • Guide must have each step listed: where to start, where to go, where to end.  (Location coordinates must be compatible with a /navi command. Use /where to get your current map/coordinates.)
  • Assume the person reading your guide has no items. Your guide should explain where to get any required items. 
  • Guide must be Wiki compatible: no special characters that would not render correctly on the wiki. Refer to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Wikitext to get an idea of what would probably cause a problem.




While I am personally not half bad, I don't have time to make all the art we require. I'm sure there are some talented artists in our community.

  • Art must be able to pass a google reverse image search. If you're using photoshop to edit existing images, make sure it's still unique enough to pass.
  • The art piece must follow the format and pixel requirements. 
  • Once the art is submitted, it will be judged by the community because art is subjective. If there are at least 10 hearts or good reactions it will be used, and the artist will be paid. If the art piece does not reach the goal in 2 weeks, it will be rejected. The artist may retry if they wish, otherwise the task will get reposted for someone else to try. 


Build/Leveling Guide


These guides should be designed to fit our server and aid others in becoming the best they can be. 


  • Guide must be clear on which class/job they are meant for. If general, then state all classes/jobs.
  • Assume the player has no gear, or doesn't know where to get it. The guide should list where to get said gear.  
  • If guide refers to an area on where to level, the guide needs to include what gear the player should have at that point.
  • Your guide should not include gear that is only obtainable with Special Item Tickets or other limited edition items only available from past events. If the gear is available in the Auro shop, explain how to get it without Auro.
  • Unless the guide is geared towards parties, assume the person following your guide is alone. 
  • The guide must be .
  • Guide must be Wiki compatible: no special characters that would not render correctly on the wiki. Refer to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Wikitext to get an idea of what would probably cause a problem.


Miscellaneous tasks

Miscellaneous tasks don't really fit with the other categories, but are more about compiling and sorting information. 
All requirements will be in the post. 


Community tasks

The forum has a club feature. Unlike the pervious tasks, these are aimed towards a group effort. Just like miscellaneous tasks, they aren't a specific category. 

  • If a list is required, a single list will be submitted. List cannot contain any duplicates. 
  • All members of the group must be in a club, and have a primary in game character.
  • Each group can only have 1 task at a time, but members can be in multiple groups. Group members are also allowed to claim a solo task at the same time. 
  • Each club will have a treasury. As tasks are being completed, the reward will be added to their treasury (once a week). Group leaders may contact a staff member to inform them who to transfer funds to, and how much. 
  • Since most community tasks are a per system, the time limit rule is altered. A community can hold a task for as long as there is activity on said task. If no activity is observed for more than a week.  The task will be reassigned to the post board, unless it is believed to be completed. The Community that claims the task after that will get the pervious list to avoid duplications. 




Do keep in mind this is all experimental, and we reserve the right to pull the plug at any time. So let's test the waters for now. 


You may have noticed the 'your ad here' boxes in the tasks. 

Current rates to put a short message there, it's 5 Auro per written box (you can que). When I need to fill one out I'll draw from the list of available ads, and fill in the box. I won't put your message twice on the same page. It does however need to be follow our rules still, so nothing you couldn't say in #main or #trade.   

If you have a custom image you want there its 20 Auro per space, and must be appropriate to show in a safe for work environment, the image needs will be sized to 200 by 200 pixels, and please host it on a site that won't remove it due to old content, so don't host it on tinypic or some other similar site. 

I was tempted to put in some of the Trade chat in there, or some Easter eggs.
