I am setting up a master list of RP related posts and lists for reference and convenience sake. Help me out with what I've missed? Thank you!

RIP Darkersls


[info]rp_connect
[info]rp_tutorials
The loss of Darkersls has pushed me to create this: [info]plot_central. This community can be used to put your ideas forward for a psl or gpsl if you're searching for a plot line or have an idea you want to see if anyone bites at. Line requests or line ideas for games can also be posted there as well. Game ads are not welcome but can be posted to the sister community [info]rpg_connect. Right now it's only me running it, but if anyone wants to jump on board, feel free to poke me. Spread the word and join!

Journal Give Away


[info]self_perfection
[info]rp_tutorials
So, finally went through and organized the millions of journals I've been collecting for the past ten years. As you can imagine, there's a bunch I have no need for. Sure, I could just go in and delete them, but that just seems like a waste. So, take a look and leave a comment. After such, I'll send you a PM with the password for the journal. After that, it's all yours.

CSS Transformations Cheat Sheet


[info]devilbear
[info]rp_tutorials
While poking at Tumblr, I came across this link here, and thought it might be useful enough to share.

It's basically an animated cheat sheet for various transformations you can do with CSS. Most of them are pretty common, but it's a nice reference. Click each one to get a little box telling you the name of the transformation and the values used in the animation.

Code Tester


[info]tessisamess
[info]rp_tutorials
Hey guys! So, normally, I send people to DRAAC to live-test their HTML and div styled codes but, recently, they've added, uh.

This really ugly sidebar. )

And, idk about you guys, but for me it's super distracting. I was getting a bit sick of all the text on the page anyway, so here you go. A new code tester based on their code (because I'm lazy lmao), with a clean, un-distracting page layout.

Just like DRAAC's, my code tester is good for HTML codes, div styled codes, and full HTML/CSS pages (but not CSS alone). Oh and, even after previewing, CTRL+Z still works, which is always a big bonus for me.

hello! i'm working on a resource post in my journal that i hope, with time, will be of use to others as well as myself.

i was wondering if there were any websites, types of websites, or information that players would find useful to have consolidated in one place? even if it's something as general as "man, i'd love to see a whole bunch of different ways to make icons" or something, because i can do the looking for websites myself, i'd just love to know what other people are interested in seeing!

Firefox Aurora


[info]tellthenight
[info]rp_tutorials
I just discovered this in my web design II class, and after playing with it some, I have to post about it. This may not help everyone, but it can be a great asset for those of us who design or tweak layouts, or just play with any of those design or coding languages.

ONE WORD OF CAUTION: This is a pre-beta release, so it's not perfect and there will be bugs. If this bothers you, I would strongly recommend waiting.

Resized Screenshot of Welcome Page


Firefox Aurora is a recently-released pre-beta build of Firefox. It may not be interesting for general users, but for those of us who RP and play around with web design/development, this is a pretty awesome tool. Supposedly, Aurora is going to incorporate HTML5, which is beyond cool. It also has some awesome new features, like a 3D view of problem areas in your website/layout. Like so:

See a screenshot (and more about this really awesome new tool) below the link. )


Anyway, this was so cool I had to share. I hope somebody else finds it useful! (If this isn't appropriate here, I'll be more than happy to take it down. <3 I may also have overtagged, so please correct me if I did!)

EDIT: My server is performing maintenance, so the pictures got temporarily moved to Photobucket. They were resized by Photobucket, so when they go back to my server, the full-size images will be big again, I promise. Sorry to anyone else who couldn't see them because of the server issue! ):

Character Name Resources


[info]devilbear
[info]rp_tutorials
While neck-deep in what is proving to be a difficult name search for a couple of new characters, I came across some new-to-me naming resources. Since I can't possibly be the only person who sucks at naming characters via imagination alone, I thought I'd share.

My list behind cut, plus many great options contributed in comments. )

[info]chaperoned told me to link this here. So I linkz it.


[info]checkedoutearly

One of my biggest inspirations for coming up with characters is astrology -- yes, yes you've heard that all before but hear me out. Namely, I like the DARK SIDE of astrology: i.e. the astrology that focus on the flaws and irritating irritations that makes us human and make characters all the more fun to work with.

For your pleasure, I have linked some excerpts in the fake-cut below. Still not sure you want to click? Samples:

[ARIES]

Aries are reactive, not reasonable. By refusing to think before they act, Rams often ruin their chances for happiness by making wild assumptions without gathering all the facts. Being born without the humility gene has negated their ability to admit mistakes. Argue with one, and you'll suffer a barrage of irrational, angry shouting. Prove they are wrong, and they will react like that toddler who says, "Am not," then shrugs his baby shoulders and walks away.

Rolling for Plot

Here, you will find the basics of rolling for plot, which I just came up with so you can feel free to point and laugh at my ignorance or help improve my explanation/suggestions.

Rollin', rollin', rollin'... )

P.S. I have no idea what to tag this with.

As I use this page everyday, I thought I'd share it with the rest of the RP world! :)

I've compiled a page of miscellaneous journal mishaps here (i.e. ink splatters, blood stains, tear drops, coffee stains, etc.) that are always fun to use in journal-based RPs.

The page is filled with thumbnails of all the images, so one only needs to click on the thumbnail to go to the larger image to snatch up the URL. I uploaded everything to tinypic so you don't need to worry about hotlinking! (tinypic has no issues with hotlinking that I know of. Someone correct me on this if I'm wrong)

The page is always growing, so if there's any other sort of mishaps you use/find, it would be kindly appreciated if you sent them my way or linked them below!

Link - Striped Background Generator


[info]devilbear
[info]rp_tutorials
When looking for backgrounds, I came across the Stripe Generator. I figured it might be useful to those who'd rather make their own background, so I'm sharing.

You can choose thickness, angle, shadow, and colour of the stripes as well as style and colour of the background. Javascript seems to be required, but I just use temporary permissions with NoScript. (So far, I've encountered no problems.)

Hi there!

I just started at another MWPP game ([info]drainingmod), and the moderator there showed me this really nifty resource. I suggested to her that she should post it, but she doesn't have a permanent IJ, or she would have. So, I present you with LOCATIONWORKS. Location Works is a website that pretty much gives you every style of house ever, with photos of the inside, surrounding gardens, etc. This is really great for working out how your characters live. For example, here is a beach house. Here is a studio apartment. And, perhaps the best for HP players, HERE is an old-style cottage where a pureblood/rich character could absolutely live.

So, there you have it. http://locationworks.com!
