@  Fire Blazer : (18 March 2020 - 03:18 AM) hope everyone is managing ok...
@  kirant : (03 March 2020 - 05:41 AM) New challenger approaching!
@  xcrash1998 : (26 February 2020 - 09:55 AM) Not anymore
@  Mage Girl : (17 February 2020 - 02:33 AM) I can safely say I'm so far the only person to post to this shoutbox in 2020...
@  Fire Blazer : (24 December 2019 - 03:17 AM) naw, it's when the bots make collaborated efforts to crawl places, lol
@  kirant : (23 December 2019 - 05:20 AM) What do we do on Index Day? Give each other bots?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 December 2019 - 01:39 AM) LOL
@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)

I'll just email it to you. Although it appears that all of the topics have disappeared... I'll try to get up some stuff about the story and the class web that I made.

No probs. I'll just take this discussion to the staff forum, I suppose.

Fighting the ghosts of my past. I'd rather not remember who I once used to be..

Had a big paragraph wrote, closed the tab by accident. :/ Basically, I disagree with Rennac because we have few RPs ongoing. And I disagree with Mercenary because I can't see any benefits of the leveling system. No stats upgrades, and if low levels can godmod but not get any levels from it, but they can godmod, then levels don't matter. And if you mean adding them to the mini-profile, they would just be insulting to the forum members who don't RP.

Could everyone just disregard that other post I made? At least the parts that seem... Irrelevant?

Kensai's right, we won't get this RP up here, because the more casual RPers will just godmod and not care if they don't gain levels, and the more serious ones will just get pissed because everyone else will be godmodding and... Yeah. (Look at The Opening Book 2 topic for a prime example of this. Actually, about 80% of the later posts were godmodding. Mostly by me.) I just don't think this will bode well. Meh.
Pimp my wyvern.

Well, we could have a locked forum with the RP in it so that you need to be accepted first. And of course, we have a Mod working on the RP, so if you don't follow the rules...

Locking is inefficient in so many ways, especially since people outside can't see what you're saying, the password could easily be leaked, and it's just simply not inviting, which is the whole purpose of the forum.

I just don't believe this system should be implemented, especially not just for one RP.

Maybe instead of a punishment system, we could have a reward system of some sort?

That would work, but that would require a closed system, so the members in the RP don't get more gold/ posts/ other stuff then the others who aren't. I'm not sure, but I bet that would be a lot of extra work for an RP that might just flop anyway.

That's the thing though. The system that is being suggested is a reward system.

The mods are doing stuff, in the protected forum.

Unless you meant for this RP, which already requires the mods taking place, and alienates the rest of the forum like I previously said. I just don't think the suggested RP system would work on a forum wherein RPing is not a major part of the forum.
