READ ME! RPG Discussion Threads: Yes or No?

I find RPG stories go better when many people contribute to the idea pool, discuss what they think should happen next, and coordinate plot ideas with each other.

Postlude to Holocaust is certainly plot-heavy enough for this...and discussion might benefit other RPGs as well...

Private messaging can get tedious and I know alot of you don't like instant messenger. What do you think about making discussion/planning threads?

(Remember, for secrets, there's still PMs )

simple:

1 discussion thread would be to confusing
2 Discussion threads for every RPG=to many unnecessary threads

3. Best option out of all of them.

yeah, i have the same thought as admiral (for there being as long as its needed)

but i think we can manage to make a single thread and not be confusing (like putting it in the post subject and separater lines in)

I think for RPGs that need it, but only that. One for all would be confusing

Well, that's pretty much the popular consensus, then, since I favor option 3 as well... (unless someone else wants to chime in )

Next question: Which RPGs need it? (My vote goes to Postlude to Holocaust, at least...)

[I'll make and sticky any discussion threads, or sticky any discussion threads made by anyone else, of course]

Postlude to Holocaust...and perhaps the Regular Cantina...which should be posted here so you can sticky it, Red.

I'll make those two threads, then, I guess...but first I'm going to wait for certain other people *cough* BD *cough* jokemaster *cough* to notice this thread XD

Wow! Red's a super moderator now. Is that like the difference between a saya-jin and super-sayajin? Should we cower before thine awesome power? Should I shut up now?

Heh. XD Actually, the difference is that a supermoderator can do everything a moderator can do their forums, but in any forum. And we can ban people (user accounts not IPs, so basically a slap-on-the-wrist type ban).

(Oddly, we can't unban people due to...something or other.)

No, you shouldn't cower, because there's really no point...

Back on topic: Still waiting for BD and jokemaster to show up... (though I'll take just one of them as a signal to get moving )
