Suggestions Box

Post by Annasiel » Thu Sep 07, 2017 12:18 am

I'm going to take this moment to loiter for suggestions and concerns. Typically, anything you want to bring up would go in the Help and Suggestions section, but I want to give all y'all a chance to be heard. If you have any ideas you want to see implemented, suggestions for how to improve the site and how it functions, or grievances about how things currently are, let me know here. If you would rather PM me your input for the sake of anonymity, I can promise nothing you tell me will be made public.

Speak up! I don't bite. I know you're a group of intelligent, creative people, and I want to hear your thoughts.

But in the wont of wandering paths
Through wooded knolls, and windworn crags
She seeks a face she thought as friend
But now -- she thinks as judgement's end

I think measures should be taken to even out the sections. Advanced and Inter have been quite empty, and it's not because everyone here roleplays with less than a paragraph, but for multiple reasons will just settle for simple. Which isn't exactly a bad thing overall, but it sets certain standards for some roleplays that would fit on upper sections, and those actually simple roleplayers (one liners are people too) end up not fitting in.

I know it's probably a tricky thing that may not even have a solution, but I feel like the sections are a way for people to easily place themselves on the kind of roleplay they like, not a tool to segregate people as "good" roleplayers or "bad" roleplayers, and that's the way some people see it.

I have some suggestions on how to try and work on that, but they might be too radical >< I can pm ya with them later on

That would be much appreciated.

Why don't we make a mixed place? I do most of my work these days on simple yet I I make posts that are sometimes way beyond one sentence, probably and entire book page's worth.

Something that has been brought up before is loosening the section rules, so only consistent averages in a roleplay matter, not hitting the minimum on every single post. It still needs more discussion with the section mods, though.

Thinking of it; is there anyway we can expand our options of BBcode? I've been missing my strike through.

I'll have to bring that up with B. I'm unsure if he'll be up for doing it with a new forum setup along the way, but fingers crossed!

The BB code for the new website is cool af. I think. You could go there and suggest stuff for B, I'm sure he'll try and implement it. Though it already has a LOT of code

More event rps like the Halloween one, it was cool but the one in Si- Casual got side tracked and the one in Inter had no one in it and the mod who was supposed to run it wasn't very active at the time
