Mod post--please read
Hey all! Wei-mod here with a big old mod post. Please read all of it, it's important. :)
There hasn’t been a whole lot of activity lately and it’s Concerning. We all want this to be an easygoing RP and not too strict, but we also don’t want it to die off. Our requirements aren't very demanding at all, so everyone should be able to keep up with them. Just so everybody's clear, here they are:
-We'll check activity Once a month. All we require is that every character have at least one significant piece of activity each month. -"Significant activity" is defined as at least three posts on a log, or at least seven comments on a journal. -Failing to meet activity requirements for one month will result in a warning. Failing for two months will result in your character being kicked. We aren’t asking for a ton of activity, so we think this is reasonable. If you haven’t posted anything with a character for two months, are you really playing them? -Of course, more than the minimum amount of activity is both encouraged and awesome!
--Mods and story-making--
What I think especially needs to be stressed is that this roLeplay goes on outside of malfunction days and events. Here we have a lot of characters living in close quarters, but recently it feels like they only really interact when something special is going on. Don't feel shy about coming up with your own plots, whether it's everyday interaction or something more exciting. We mods come up with major plot events sometimes to get things moving, but we by no means want to control the entire storyline. Taking plots and running with them is more than encouraged. Have a crazy idea? Go for it! Have a crazy idea that affects the plot in a major way and you’re not sure if you should do it? Let us know so we can give you feedback and then, most likely, go for it! There's plenty of time between malfunction days and trials, and we want to see what you guys do with it. So go, plot, and be free!
As for the trials and malfunction days, we are way open for suggestions about what should happen in them. Feel free to comment here or on the malfunction day info post with any ideas.
This is the main thing for you guys to be doing with this post. We figure part of the slowness is due to people not getting in contact with each other re: plot ideas, so here’s a place to do it. Please post for each of your characters, putting the name of the character in the subject. In the comment, please fill out the following form:
Current threads: List and/or link things you have going on that aren’t finished Shoutouts: List any characters you really need/want to talk to plOt-wise Ideas: Things you’d like to see happen with your character in the near future
Look for your character listed in a shoutout, and respond if you see them so you can talk out whatever plot needs to be plotted. Feel free to jump in and suggest ideas for things you might want to do with the character even if you haven’t been shouted to. Nobody’s going to bite you.
Beyond plotting, we want to hear from you. Do you have any suggestions for general game plot? Any playing mechanics you want to see? Have a problem with? Anything you’Re confused about? Any other kinds of commentary I haven’t mentioned here? Tack it onto one of your character posts. We want to hear it, and we’ll answer any questions as best we can.
Did you notice those random letters in bold caps spelled something? Good, you were paying attention. (Or if you just slapped your forehead and said “Oh THAT’s what those were about!” that’s good, too.) Now post what your favorite one of those things I just spelled is along with your plotting info and feedback to prove to me that you read this. ;)
