A big thing that 2012 graduates were doing was "tweeting" their thoughts and feelings onto the internet. We have quite a few preppy and opinionated students who would (over)use the website and it's functions. But before I rant, let me just ask the question:

How would we feel about a twitter pregame thread? It would be open of course, and we could imagine that the viewer is just a person who follows every senior at the school. Of course, not every character would be involved, but it'd be a good place for random thoughts your character might have.

Including sigs in such posts would probably be discouraged for the sake of space.

This thought came to mind while reading the "Random Thoughts" thread, in case anybody was wondering.

Another option is to collect all the tweets by PM and then post it in one big lump, kind of like the V4 end of school interview. The key would be making sure it wouldn't get ignored/forgotten like that did.

If you do do it, maybe memories or Other would be a good place. PM the staff, too, 'cause we may be able to work out something with thread limits since this isn't the typical situation re: characters in threads. Also, remember that anything would have to be school-appropriate and that violating that could for sure carry bad consequences.

As someone who extensively uses the Internet and has a lot to say, I'm pretty sure Claire would spend a lot of time on Twitter. She probably would post tons of tweets per day with the username @DirectorClaire, so I'm sure I can scrounge a few tweets she might have made in the last year or so of school.

What exactly does this mean? People, in high school and college, post images and comments about being drunk or stoned frequently. When this is the case, the individual usually does not have their last name on the website, or they use a fake name (I do have a twitter and the name attached is an anagram of my real name.)

Sorry if I sound argumentative, but this is how it is for people my age, at least, and I have never seen anybody get in legal trouble for things they "tweeted" about. Except for one kid, but that's because he set up a fake account to make fun of somebody else and then bragged about it in school.

And will definitely PM staff!

No worries! I actually misunderstood this as an official, school-run thing with everyone using their names and posting for, like, parents and teachers to read. If it's just random kids on their personal twitters, then yeah, as long as it's not threatening it should be fine.

Thank you. I'm now picturing a group of people on Twitter just throwing increasingly absurd threats at each other, and Miranda typing things like "Hey (twitter name), fuck you. <3" at like... everyone.

For v6, I have come to a decision. To help lessen character pimping, I have vowed not to talk about my characters, any characters closely related to mine, or any threads I've been involved in, in any of the following places:

- Chat
- General Discussion thread
- TV Tropes
- Random Thoughts
-Skype
- Anything else I missed

I am not allowing myself to talk about anything relating to my characters or scenes I'm in unless they are brought up in conversation by another handler. I am not allowed to use my characters' names OOC or mention anything relating to that character until another handler mentions them. This is not currently in effect for pre-game; these self-imposed rules do not apply until v6 starts. However, they will be in effect the second v6 is announced. When one of my characters die, escape, or are otherwise removed from the game, these rules are lifted for that character, and I am free to talk about that character as much as I want. However, the others will have to wait until they too are out of the game.

This is a personal promise I'm keeping to myself for v6. If I break it, please feel free to bitch me out.

-KamiKaze

Addendum as of v6: I may ask for critiques while a character's arc is ongoing, as long as someone has offered to do so.
Let's show that private threads aren't necessary! I pledge not to start any private threads on island in V6. If I started a thread, you are welcome to join it.

I wonder what kind of twitter name Travis would have...

Either he'd have been high when he made it, and he'd have something like:
@Stoner420dude

Or he'd try to be witty about it...

@NapoleonStonaparte

@GanjasaurusRex
