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. _________________

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. _________________ Avatar by Ceika.

All of our moderator problems can be solved with one easy step.
Make everybody a mod. 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. _________________ Characters
