I had to move this into roleplay because it got filled up with an argument with Nachoz last time, so here it is.
I want us to usher in a new age of Roleplay,
These days it's all private, and the open ones that are good no one joins.
I know the reason behind this, most of the open roleplays these days aren't the best, and as such, good roleplayers go to Private ones.
And as such there's not very many good Open ones.
This is a vicious cycle, and I present a way to end it.
Its an act that would overhaul the way the roleplay forums work.
It comes in multiple parts, Modules if you will.
Module 1: Redoing the structure of the roleplaying forums.
There's a private roleplay section, so I propose an Advanced roleplayers Board, And A novice roleplayer board be added, so people have an easier way to access roleplay that are right for them.
And maybe even need to submit an application to be able to access the Advanced form.
Module 2: Rating
Allow people to rate Roleplays by quality, wouldn't work for private ones, and needs more thought.
Module 3: Chat
I propose a roleplay chat system, Were people can create roleplays in a chat system, instead of posts, it would be a forum, but you could go into an archive to read logs n a form like manner
Final Module Four: Characters
I think rolepaly should have a sort of integrated page dedicated , and wouldn't clutter characters, and characters create them in a form designated by the roleplay creators and wouldn't clutter the first page, and would be needed for chat. Look at a famous roleplay place RPgateway for an example of that
(Yes, its another site, If I'm not allowed to mention it, please tell me, never really come out of the roleplay boards much.)
___________________________________________________________________________ Its a rough draft of a possible act, and I believe in the long run, it would greatly benefit the site.
Please post suggestions if you have any, and lets get this out there and heard of!
We can do it.
