PostSubject: General Updates 02.   12/6/2017, 5:26 pm

SO! As I've just gotten things moving along and stuff is, well, moving in - I figured it was time to post something of another general updates thing.

Right now, I've placed all the folders that were popular from the previous forum and cut out all the ones that were never written into. I will add more on request but take into account the new rule for those folders.

Secondly, I know it's going to take some time, but I'd like to get some site ranks done. Previously, we used Borderlands rankings as there were a lot of characters that could be used beyond 2000 to 3000 posts. I'm not sure how I'm going to go about rankings this time or what I'm going to use for a theme, but any suggestions, I'm open for them.

Another thing is, I'm extremely open to suggestions on what you'd like to see here or see back. Did you like the drabble prompts? Would you want those again? Things like that. Having a basis to make this a community once more is something I want to focus on. I don't want it to be a few fandoms that an admin liked because that's what it was. I want there to be a variety of sorts and I want people to feel included.

So if you guys have any ideas that I can kind of bounce around, I would love to hear about them.

ALSO on a last note, I work during the week, so there will be days that I'm not on at all. If I can manage to check in a time or two, I will start making it a habit, but don't panic if you don't see me for a day or more. I get up at 4:30 in the morn to work. 8') I get tired.

Other than that, thanks for coming back guys, and I hope we can make this forum as great as the last!

Def would like to see the drabble prompts back again, those were fun. As for ranks I'm not really sure, maybe Resident Evil characters? Or Pokemon. Maybe Okami. Very Happy

Even though I've stated some things on the old site, I'll go ahead and agree that sections such as the Drabble Prompts, Writing Challenges, Roleplay Hubs (specifically canon character sheets among other sheets), and even holiday events where things I adored on the old site. It was always fun to see what people could work with regarding just a few simple words, or see individuals come together by the works of a gift given to each other without them even knowing who it was! I loved that aspect of the old site and I'm sure we'll see such a beautiful aspect again here.

As for things like the ranking icons and images with the posting numbers, I always thought you could have one specific character from a popular fandom in each icon. For example, a beginning icon would be Sora from Kingdom Hearts or a higher tier icon would be Glados from the Portal franchise. As for the post count, I always thought that it could change with maybe... 150 to 200 posts each? Maybe even every 500 as I realize the post count can be easy to rack up in the Random Topics section.

But basically, I was just thinking we could have characters (one specifically) from popular franchises as the ranking icons. And if that doesn't work, there are other areas to choose from like Fire Emblem, FATES, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, Disney, Pixar, and that's just to name a few.

And don't worry about your work schedule, Oki! Real life always takes priority over here as that always has to get done first. I'll be here wishing you luck and offering support whenever you need it! And for those of you reading this, my schedule as well can be all over the place. I don't have a set time frame at my job but I am off more frequently. So if you ever need anything done and Oki's not around, don't be afraid to PM me! I'll see what I can do. c:

I'm glad that we're in agreement about the prompts! I may, however, make those monthly challenges due to my schedule, so they might not change right away but that'll also give members a lot of time to write said prompt, be it something short or something long. 

As for member images, I'm in agreement as well. A variety of things might be a good idea, from multiple series, via video games or anime or anything that we know of. I think that'll extend some of the posts as well. The highest rank I think on the old forum was 3,000. While I know that sounds excessive, being able to continually level up was kind of fun to see. I however, don't know if I'll have the ability to do so but I will def try!

And thank you! I know I've been silent for the last couple of weeks. Work is tough and I've been really tired but I'm gonna try my best to be here as much as I can!

Any other thoughts though, please do add guys! I'd love to here'em!
