Hope this helps!

Q: How do I join?

A: You join by clicking "register" in the top, right-hand corner (above all the sidebars) of the page. When you register, please write a warrior cat's name in the blank space where it says "display name" (for example: Tanglebreath or Greyscar; if you want to be an apprentice, kit or leader, you can finish your name with a 'paw/'print, 'kit/'kitty or 'star/'strike). Then fill in all the other information and upload an image of your cat. After registering, please go to the Home and Join Page, and join there, by filling in all the need information about your cat(s) in the black box (above the box I have listed what you need to write down); please don't forget to give me a link of your cat's picture!

Q: What kind of name should an apprentice have?

A: If the apprentice is a tom (boy) then his name should end with a 'paw'; if the apprentice is a she-cat (girl) then her name should end with a 'print' (for example: Fernprint, Whitepaw).

Q: What kind of name should a kit (kitten) have?

A: If the kit is a tom then his name should end with a 'kit'; if the kit is a girl then her name should end with a 'kitty' (for example: Cloverkitty, Bramblekit).

Q: How do I make up a warrior name?

A: You need to think of two things related to the forest or the wild creatures living in it (for example: green and claw). Then you join the two names together (Greenclaw) to make your name. (If, after some time, you would like to change your name - you might become leader, etc. - all you have to do is go to 'Edit Profile' and change the name, but don't forget to save it.) If you're really struggling to come up with an original name, go to http://www.warriorcats.com/ and fill in the needed information to get your warrior name.

Q: Where and when can I hold warrior, apprentice, deputy or leader ceremonies? (leader asking)

A: First, you need to be certain that the cat is ready to have a ceremony - by the age and knowledge. A kit must be on this site for at least one month to become an apprentice; an apprentice must be on this site for at least two months to become a warrior; a warrior must be on this site for at least three months to become a head warrior; a head warrior must be on this site for at least four months to become deputy; a deputy must be on this site for at least five months to become a leader; a medicine cat apprentice must be on this site for at least two and a half months to become a medicine cat; a warrior, head warrior, deputy, leader or queen must be on this site for at least six months to be an elder; a warrior, head warrior, deputy, leader must be on this site for at least three months to become a queen (she-cat expecting or nursing kits). Then you need to call a meeting in your camp clearing and fulfill whichever ceremony is needed.

Q: How do I fulfill an apprentice ceremony? (medicine cat or leader asking)

A: You need to say the words: "_____kit/kitty, I give you your apprentice name: _____paw/print. Your mentor will be __________." to the kit, who you want to be an apprentice. Warning: choose the mentors carefully. It's better if the mentors are warriors, who have been on this site for linger than three and a half months. If you would like a kit to be a medicine cat apprentice, then the medicine cat must say: "SkyClan, look down on this kit. He/she desires to be taught and learn the skills of a medicine cat. Let him/her test his/her skills. _____kit/kitty, I give you your medicine cat apprentice name: _____paw/print." to the kit, who would like to be a medicine cat apprentice.

Q: How do I fulfill a warrior ceremony? (leader asking)

A: You need to say the words: "_____paw/print, you have trained hard and long to become a warrior. I do not doubt your ability to serve the Clan well. I give you your warrior name: __________." to the apprentice, who is ready to become a warrior.

Q: How do I fulfill a deputy ceremony? (leader asking)

A: (The head warrior is usually supposed to become the next deputy) You need to say the words: "__________, I say these words before __________'s body, you have served your Clan well and I now welcome you as my new deputy. Would you like to change your name to _____cat?" to the warrior, who you would like to be your new deputy (if the previous deputy has died, you need to say: "...before __________'s body...", though if the deputy isn't dead, but has simply retired , you need to just miss out that part and contiue with the ceremony). If the warrior agrees to change his/her name to _____cat, by saying: "Yes.", you need to procceed by saying: "From now on you will be called _____cat." If he/she says: "No." you need to say: "Very well, then, as you wish. Welcome." to him/her.

Q: How do I fulfill as leader ceremony? (leader asking)

A: If the Clan leader dies, the deputy has to take his/her place and appoint a new deputy in their place. (The new deputy and leader have to appoint a new head warrior; since usually the head warrior becomes the next deputy.) You don't really need to perform a ceremony for yourself, but before informing your Clanmates that you are the leader, you must go to the Sky Stone with your medicine cat to make sure that your warrior ancestors approve of you leading your Clan. Tip: The leader's name should end either with a 'star' or a 'strike', depending on which ending suits the first part of the name better.

Q: How do I fulfill a head warrior ceremony? (leader or deputy asking)

A: You need to call a meeting in the camp clearing and say: "__________, you will now be my head warrior. I trust you to serve your Clan as best as possible in your new role." to the warrior, who you'd like to be your new head warrior. Tip: It's better to discuss this with the senior warriors and possibly the elders before making the final decision.

Q: How do I fulfill a medicine cat ceremony? (medicine cat asking)

A: If you, the medicine cat, think that your apprentice is ready to take on the full role of being a medicine cat, like you, go with him/her to the Sky Stone, where the medicine cats share dreams with SkyClan, and say the words: "_____paw/print, I believe that you are ready to take on the responsibility of a full medicine cat. I wish SkyClan to approve of you being a medicine cat and I now grant you your well earned name. _____paw/print, from now on you will be called __________." to your apprentice, and then touch your muzzle to his/hers.
