Should there be restrictions on the creation of RP's?
Yes, there are too many and we should probably only have one main one.

Yeah, but nothing too strict. Perhaps three or four active ones.

I really don't care either way, so long as I can RP.

Maybe a tiny rule; I still want lots of active RP's and to be able to make as many as I want.

No, the system is fine as it is.

I'm seeing a bit of a pattern in the RP's...people plan a big RP and people participate. But after ten or so pages, someone randomly makes another RP and the first one is abandoned completely to go join this new one.

It's getting a bit annoying. No one is sticking with them...it happened with The War Begins and The Black Swarm. I don't feel like joining seven RP's; I'd only be in one if the one I was in wasn't abandoned. Instead, I ended up making another because everyone stopped posting in TWB. And not TBS is totally deserted too.

Seriously? Guys?

I'd help you revive it if newer members could join.

But yeah. Sorry to hear that. That happened to all my RPs on Gaia.

It's a real buzz kill.

I'm in many RP's, but I keep up with them. Just look at TBS, most of the posts there are mine. I'm in three RP's here and two in MaMoG. And I'm in a story, too. I keep up with all of them, so it's not my fault! Cool

New members are allowed to join any RP, just depending on where it is (like the War Begins) it can be suggested to join a new one. But feel free to join it, it's just not the prime time.

And you can still join the Black Swarm.

I'm just getting annoyed that an RP is doing well, then someone randomly makes a new one and everyone drops everything and joins that one...until a new RP is created.

Unless, the person that joined that "new" RP wasn't in the "doing well" RP.

About my last post, in MaMoG I'm in three RP's, not two.

Ah, I see. I'll look into joining the Black Swarm then. I'd need to make another character, yes?

Nope, it takes place after all the current RP's. So long as you don't plan on killing your charrie in an earlier RP, you can use it.

Well, we'll have to check with all the members. We are haveng trouble keeping up with the people that aren't posting. We constantly have to stop because certain people don't post. We have two MIA charries in TBS. Remember ClawedWing, guys? Sad

*Checks TWB*

I've been waiting to RP there FOREVER. I mean, the reason The Changing was brought up was because Icefall in Kunneer was over and I needed somewhere to RP Emeralan with. Ugh, I hope TWB picks up. ._.

AW, we're all waiting for you to post in TBS. You're the one leading them to the islands! Confused

Yeah, I was waiting for you to say something.

If you need someone to post in an RP, say so in that RP's discussion instead of making a new one. I haven't been in a single RP as of yet that has been finished. It's getting annoying. It's the creation of new RP's that making people forget to post in old ones.

Maybe we could put something in place that limits how often new topics can be made, or a minimum page count that the first topic must get to before another story arc can be started. Does that sound better or worse than the current system of hands-off RP?

Worse. I like how the RP's are going. I am on three here, and I handle them well. Cool

Better. Well, I say the page should reach 30 or 40 if it's a longer one, 10-20 if it's not. That might work. So if it's short and near the end, 10-20, if it's long and on page 10-20 is only half or less than, 30-40. It really depends on the story's length. XD

I think it sounds better. Or at least have the RP's have some sort of discussion; at least then there'd be a warning. The impulse RP's are getting annoying.
