RP section

I suggest that in the RP section of the forums have a stickied general chat thread, so that they can talk about the RPs, what new ones are up, if they're closed to member, or open to them, etc. It'd just be easier to manage and such, in my opinion. Also, that way people who have RPs can say what the basic storeyline is, and see if people are interested before posting the RP.

I like this suggestion, me being a rather organized RPer myself having ran and maintained a good few games. (Both table-top and online) But, I don't think something like that would work well here, just the way it is set up. Everybody is so open and ready to post, you see jump-ins all the time; that's how the threads are run. I think it would be far too difficult to bar in and out the RP threads, people would get confused and post anyways.

Though I do agree, I'm not sure it would work. Plus not a lot of RPers are very long-termish. So most games die pretty quickly. That's why this is such a broad forum, if it were RP only, then it would perhaps be more organized for role-playing.

But I'm no mod or admin or anything so do't let me spoil your idea. XD, I do think it's good though. :P

Sounds like an interesting idea, but I agree with Keria on this, for I myself am I vertern of many different tpes of RPs, this place is just not focused enough on RPs that much.

Though one thing I would like to see differently is the dice rolling system, I'm not really sure how that works, maybe I didn't read that page well enough.

The Unforgiven:
We can give it a try Unforgiven.  It it doesn't turn out to be needed then we can always unsticky it.

So are you suggesting one thread for everyone or like an OOC thread for each game?

If you or anyone has some ideas that you think would help improve the RP area feel free to pass it along.

Serge:
The dice roller is a program I wrote for Furtopia back in 2001 (notice the old wall paper '<img'> ).  The diffrence from this dice roller and the common ones of today is that this dice roller Logs A Users Rolls.  This was a requested feature "back when" that by logging the game master and other players could actualy see the dice rolls (including the reason for the roll) thus preventing any cheating in dice rolls for online games.  Accounts can be created for a game (all players use) or for each player.  To see a accounts log it's http://dice.furtopia.org/users/{username}.html  Example: http://dice.furtopia.org/users/test.html

If you have no use for a honesty tracking dice roller. '<img'>  Your players can just use the "test" account for a quick roll. '<img'>

I'll try and redo the explination on the main dice role page in the next few days to make it easier to understand.
