RE: Why I quit New Town

Well first, DivaDe, one of my main RP buddies left for personal reasons. After that, I was doing most of my RPing with ValdisRequiem, and it got too hectic to be juggling three of four characters at the same time, so I just went "I'm done" and quit. Since, I've been doing one character in Old GITP town, though in actuallity, he's really much more associated with the ACRONYMs.

I did recently come back a little for Magtok's new Asylum place. I think the problem for me is that my characters start off as little prewrites when I bring them into Town. If people interact with them, I develop them on the fly, mostly, and then am invested enough to keep playing them. But if nobody else is interested, I pretty much scrap 'em.

To talk briefly on the games - I think part of the problem is the inactivity and it just generally not being somewhere that's checked. There've been a few games I only found out were recruiting when I actually noticed a new posts icons and found it was something that sounded interesting but was already filling up it's last slots and was a couple of pages long. So it then becomes circular reasoning for me certainly - I don't notice new things in the games forum so I don't check them, so I check the Playground instead and I miss things here because I don't check regularly, so I look elsewhere...

Personally, all I think it needs is some more games to recruit, to become games and people to start checking more often.


After thinking on this, I decided to go ahead and try to fix that. So I've started an Adventurer's Guild in the Games forum, for those who don't check that place and may not have seen.

I hope that this idea of mine can help bring life back to the Games forum.

On a different not, please continue the discussion here. Still lots left to discuss.

Okay, I'm going to suggest a few things.
If a number of people say "no" then they're not going to happen, or will be modified to people's tastes. If people say yes, or if no one says anything, they'll be changed.
So post, unless you really don't care.

1) My first suggestion is that we merge the gaming forum- looking for players, OOC threads, and IC threads- into one forum. While people still want to use those forums, I don't think there is enough call for them to merit each part having its own forum.

2) Next, I'm thinking of merging Art, Homebrew, and Webcomics into a single section. This will consolidate all of that- Webcomics and Homebrew are rarely- if ever- used, and I think a single Crafts forum should suffice for them all.

3) Hamlet will be removed.

4) Character thread directory will be removed, and I will allow anyone (BR, perhaps?) to make a new one if they feel inclined.

5) Sci-fi directory will be removed.

6) I (along with other moderators and interested parties) begin drafting a newer, simplified version of the rules.

On a first glance, I agree with it all, and have little to add right now.

I would suggest waiting just a little with the first point. To see if my recent attempt at kicking some life into that place will change the situation. Who knows, maybe a miracle will happen Razz

I think, if anything, the webcomics should go back to the Chit Chat thread since it's links to other sites, and not art shared directly here.

Just my opinion, though.

I don't think I'd limit the Arts and Crafts forum to just our arts and crafts. It would likely just extend to a discussion of all arts and crafts, which webcomics would fall under.

Um... I kinda like the character directory, quite a bit, actually. It lets me keep track of my own characters, and the characters of other players. If I don't know who someone is, a quick look at the directory usually solves the problem. If someone wants to know a bit more about one of mine, a handy link in my sig points them in the right direction. I think it saves a lot of work from writing long descriptions everytime someone new enters a thread your in, or when you put a new character into a thread. And while I do enjoy writing a nice entry description, usually it's easiest to say "Raril walks into the tavern"

Just my 2cp, the rest looks pretty good to me.

They just meant that the single thread that points out all of the player's directory would be deleted (believe me, I panicked at first, too)

Neither did I.  That's why I was worried.  But then I decided to check when they said 'thread' as in singular, instead of 'forum.'

Oops. >.>
Sorry for the confusion. Yes, just that thread which I theoretically run and collect links to everyone's character threads in.

These three parts have been done. I will continue looking into the others.
Suggestions are still welcome...

Did you delete all the threads and posts in the Hamlet, or did they go somewhere strange? The Directory Bot didn't find any of them in the Town forum.

Also, I'll offer my help with the rules drafting if needed. Not sure how much I can help, but if I can, I will.

Ah, don't worry about it, I was mostly just wondering. It could have been fun to keep them around, who knows what strange urges one might get some day? But it's not really important.

Why is it that people don't seem to play on the scifi as much and those that do don't check it as often as modern or normal?

The few people who do Sci-Fi town don't post as often, unless you are in the Arrowhawk, which might die soon, due to my broken computer. And the slowness of the Arrowhawk comes from me having to figure out where I'm going with ever post.

Yeah, partly because of my time-zone, and how much (or little) Renom can get online, our Osax Swarm group goes fairly slowly. Oh, and part of it is Blackout's fault. :-

I've never been the most regular poster anyway. Still, every little counts, as they say.

As soon as Lord Vader comes back all will be well again.

Also, is there any chance that you could install a 'search' feature to make it eaasier to find old threads?

Well, in the main Town, there's Deadly's Directory. For Sci-Fi, there's only two pages, so just ctrl+f to find it. Or look.

Anyway, I don't think we should rely on LV coming back. We need to just continue making our own plots, and stuff. Once we're finished on Veil, we'll head back to Livingston Station, which seems like the place to be.

More parties would be fun.  We did have one party.  It was an armed forces party and you had to dress up as a member of the branch of the military.  It was fun.
