So, I think if this forum is to survive, then a roleplaying section is the way to go.
Having this section will allow us to flex our creativity and actually roleplay with the characters we have so lovingly created -- something that is critical to the survival of the fandom as time goes on, and no new official content is released. Allowing users to weave our own stories, with our own characters, will help keep interest in both this forum and this show.
The Forum section would have a subsection, for rp plannings, sign ups, and OOC discussion. There will also be a stickied thread detailing roleplaying rules and guidelines, visible in both the OOC section and the actual roleplaying section.
Each RP would be required to have a sign-up/ooc thread, in order to keep things moderately organized and to prevent people from just jumping into roleplays without permission.
And as for moderation of this new section -- which it will need HEAVY moderation, make no mistake -- I'd be more than willing to take on the burden if it means that this board gets something that many of us have dreamed of for years. I've run several other RP forums in the past, and currently run a massive (200+ players) guild in Star Wars: The Old Republic, as well as the accompanying forums for the guild.
Also about making a new thread- I didn't want to necro the old one. I can't remember if necros are against the rules or not, so better safe than sorry.
Hello, Zexeos! This is an interesting proposition for the forum. It could have potentional, though I'm not sure myself since when I'm active here, there's only a few others or just me. (Always miss the "most users online" bits)
I would be up for this, however I'm not the best RPer. I tend to get overexcited and "play God/overpowered" with my characters-if they have a lot of knowledge. However, I am in the slow process (procrastinating) on revamping some of my DB OC's. Who knows, I might be better after I fix them, haha!
