I've been lurking in both towns.

I tried posting in both.

Neither kept me hooked long enough to keep anything worthwhile going, or to drag me into the roleplaying again.

Old Town? It's too....Childish. No, not sure that's the right word...I don't know what the right word is, but it isn't anything I like.
One of the main turn offs was when AMEN tried to take over old town.
In come my small pie army.
Along come, I quote(approx. Trying not to remember), "6 million gunners".
Just that level of overpowering and godlikeness is too much.
Get your characters and let us have fun as well. "I dodge. I absorb damage. I nuke you for 1029237 damage." all the time wasn't fun. Wasn't fun at all.

New Town? It was too orderly. You(Can't really say "We"...I'm not really part of Town at the moment...) have all your nice little rules telling us what to do.
In a way, it's too restricting.
The other problem I had was that I'm kinda nervous about introducing new characters...nervous that I'm going to run into some plot and ruin it all for everyone. Lots of the characters have their well established cliques, and I'm very nervous of breaking into them.


I can identify quite a few problems...
- The lag on Giantitp. Not going back there.
- Overpoweredness(Which I'm kinda guilty of...<.<). It makes it less fun for everyone.
- Cliques. I for one am nervous of my characters walking into it...
- The rules. Screw the rules, this is Town.

While I can't think of any solution to the Cliques, and haven't really looked much at the rules, I have had a small idea for at least temporarily getting rid of magic, god-like powers, and other sorts of magicy stuff. Which could bring powerlevels down dramatically - Most of the high powered people are high powered because of their magical abilities.

Probably wouldn't work though, but eh.

Rules? Get rid of plot registration. I agree with Wxdruid, just have a plot discussion thread. That's the only thing I can think of at the moment, you more active roleplayers probably have a better idea about this than me.

Open door? Sounds good. As long as we have rules(Hypocrite? Me? Nah...) about not being a complete ass or flaming everyone else, I'm happy with that. I get along with most people.

Anything else I missed out? Don't think so. I think this answers everything...

And wow, these sorta things always turn out longer than I expected them to be.

Sorry if I'm repeating everything, I skimmed through most of this thread...>.>

EDIT: Secret Mods would work. People who are trusted to keep things running while staying quietly in the background.

Admin account activation has been disabled. There is still an activation process, but it is done by the user to prevent bots.
Because we hattesssss bots, precious. Gollum gollum.

Plot registration has been changed to plot discussion.

The old Editor Admin account which I used for testing out forum styles will be changed to be a generic Admin account that all of the Admin/mods can use.

(ooooh. I've got a terrible idea! For every new user who stays for over a week, I'll email a personally autographed picture to them. Its sure to bring in the girls age 5-8 demographic who all want a pony.)

Also, great. I admit I was for the invitation policy, but after hearing about people who were excluded from it, I recant my beliefs and will force myself to listen to Hinder's CD in self-inflicted repentance while watching Chris Crocker video's on You Tube.

So far:

Abolish Plot things - As it's not used. Widely Agreed to
Screw the Rules (I have Money.) Sort-of Agreed to. Keep some rules.
Set Door to "Open" - Widely Agreed to

'Hidden' Mods - Suggested, and sort of agreed to

Town Council - Fen Suggested, and I semi-Agree to
Iames suggested a 'boundary' between them.

Mods and Admins
Seft wrote:
If at all possible, the lead-admin role should be passed to a separate account, simply titled "admin".

We could then have a team of moderators - including Vael, Soph, Fenric & WX Druid and at least two others - all with access to the main admin account as neccessary.


Why not make them all Admins =) if Vael (or anyone) can't work out how to not do it.

Or the Editor thing...

New forum
Nope. Please?

No complaining about Overpowerred Characters

Can I change this to:
No complaining about ##
We're all freinds. If we have a problem, can we resolve it without ranting about it?

We're not freinds. We're friends. God, Exachix, how COULD you spell improperly? This ruins everything!

I'm sick of everyone spelling wrong, and messing up the forums with it, and now it is all going to fall apart and-OHGODARABIDHYENAISEATINGMYFACEOFFAARGGGGGGGHHHH.

*whacks Vael with squeaky club*

Bad Vael. Go to your room.

@Exy - That list looks good. And the part about "Not complaining about ##" looks better than the "Not complaining about overpowered stuff".

Meep!
*runs off*

But seriously, I like that list too.
And we ARE talking about getting some new moderators.
We're just being very, very sloooooowwwwwlllliikkkeeee...

Speaking of which, I'd really like to have an odd number of moderators, but that means we either need to add one (eeeeek) or three (kinda a lot, in my opinion.)
Does anyone have thoughts on numbers?

One extra one sounds like more than enough, imo.

Depends on 'Active' Forum members.

The more Members.
The More Mods. (makes sense)

It depends on the pressure on the current mods really =).

Good Vael.
*keeps squeaky club out just in case*

I'd vote 1 extra mod. But yeah...that'd mean a large list to pick from...I know quite a few people here who I think would probably do well as a mod. But eh. *shrugs*

For now, I'd say just the one - see how we go now we're open-door, and if we have problems later on, then recruit extras as and when we need them.

I'd say a total of 5 would be ok.

(Currently: 2 Admins, and 2 Mods, I think. + the Extra one.)

And yeah.
If you need it get more.

Well, letting ourselves be open door isn't going to do much unless we actually tell the others that we're open door.

...Who wants to be the lucky guy to go down to Old Town, explain the whole situation, and open the doors properly?

Hmmmmm......I ....ummm....well, it may be narcissism but I'm pretty sure I'm liked by most of them. I wouldn't be afraid to open discussion over there.

EDIT (or Soph can do it. Go Soph!)

We need a determinative consensus, first.

I am loath to do anything before I know that I represent the majority of everyone here.

I think Llama'd be the best choice. He's the one that wanted to invite everyone over here, and he's a pretty neutral party.

Agreed.

I'd second Atreyu, simply because he is well known as being one of the friendliest in the playground and Enupnion.

I vote for Llama, although I guess that other people chipping in wouldn't hurt.

I'm still rather wary of just opening completely up and letting anyone in, but I suppose if I'm the only one I'll have to accept and see how it goes

I vote for the Llama as our ambassador too.... Ambassador Llama, sounds good Smile

All of our moderator problems can be solved with one easy step.

Make everybody a mod. Wink Tremble mortals and despair... Doom has come to this world.

Open door... I guess I'm okay with it. Instead of total deletion, I recommend moving 'offensive' topics to the moderator/invisible forum, just in case they need to be revisited. I vote Atreyu as well. Actually, I'd vote for anyone except me. Even Nevrmore.

*pokes through thread tentatively... sees it's all serious and long and confusing and so runs away*

Slightly more on topic, I don't know anymore either...

Well, I've already been deleting those old topics. And please don't discuss them, or I'll have to delete THIS thread too. =P
