  1. Dropbox only shows active Roleplays!

    I have created 25 rp's and out them only one is active and it is OF course the last one that I can not get to from the dropbox which in my case renders it useless. My suggestion is merely to improve the dropbox so it only shows active rp's or at the very lease doesn't show rp's that are closed.

    Thank you,
    Forget~Me~Nott

      • Separate tab for private roleplays

        The front page is flooded with 1x1 roleplays that aren't available to the general public. Please give private roleplays their own tab so they don't crowd the main page, allowing for public roleplays to get more attention. Thanks.

        • Improve the Remove Characters function

          I have noticed that when you go to remove a character from your RP their name stays on the list of acceptable and removable characters...

          Also if you have 20 characters in an RP it only gives you the option to delete maybe seven of those twenty people, and usually the person you want to delete isn't on that minuscule list of people. I have had many roleplays fail because this site will not extend to let me delete inactives as they drop.

          When you remove someone, their name should disappear from your list entirely so you have more room.…

            • Add optional expanded member profiles

              For people who would prefer to have more information than date of birth and start of roleplaying, I suggest an optional expanded profile.

                  • That you make the chat better but it showing all messages.

                    I have had problems viewing my chat messages where they don't always come through and I have to reload the page. It gets rather annoying having to reload the page all the time if you could fix this it will be appreciated thank you. :)

                    • Create an Error Screen that Explains Why the Site is Down when it is Down

                      Considering how often the site has been going down as of late, I think it'd be great if you would make some sort of error screen that explains what's wrong with Gateway so that we're not all left in the dark as per usual. I don't know how that might work or the specifics of it, but it would be AWESOME if we could have some sort of explanation page so we can understand.

                      • Give Private Roleplays their own place

                        Roleplays that are private, like one on ones, are unjoinable by the public and therefore only serve to take up space on the front board and the newest roleplays cycle under the toolbar. If they had their own board separate from joinable roleplays, or a user could set their roleplay to 'private' or 'invisible' so it wouldn't pop up on the main board, would make it much easier to find roleplays that are actually joinable. This could also work for roleplays that are no longer accepting.

                        • Update your website

                          I haven't been on this website in a really long time and it's interesting how nothing has changed except for this weird facebook chat thing at the bottom of the screen which seems kind of unnecessary. I'm not trying to be rude about it, but it's not very user friendly or up to date and I think everyone would really benefit from some changes, especially younger users who are not familiar with early 2000s style websites. I would suggest hiring a web designer because even though they are expensive it would help in the long run. Also since most people…

                          • Allow users to have a character database independent of specific roleplays

                            So right now, as far as I know, one can only create a character for a specific roleplay. There's no way to just make a character and not have them in a roleplay. Additionally, if someone has the same character in multiple roleplays, they have to create different entries and that character appears several times in their character database.

                            I propose that you make character creation independent of any specific roleplay, so people can simply take their time and create a character, have it saved to their database, and then allow the character to join a story (roleplay) later on.…

                              It's really annoying and it takes up too much space so when you view a roleplay, it covers the title of the roleplay.

                                Can you possibly explain them with some more detail, and tell me why they are contradicting eachother.

                                  As a GM who has RP's where the players are more or less active during the same time, I find the lack of a private chat page where the members of the RP can chat in peace and quiet while not being disturbed by a public chat very uncomfortable and very inconvenient. I know there's a public chat page, but when we're discussing matters pertaining to our RP, why should everyone else get to see it? So I suggest a new and more private chat page be added to the RP's tabs which blocks all users save those accepted into…

                                    The Top-Rated Roleplays section hasn't moved or updated in ages. It would be awesome if that space were used for something else, like pointing users towards new or interesting roleplays that are looking for characters, or simply want to get off the ground.

                                    It would also be awesome to get icons in the RW/IC forums to mark specific featured threads.

                                      I noticed that many of the sites haven't been reviewed in over three years.

                                      • Make character sheet preview longer

                                        After the character sheet gets too long the preview below does not allow you to see it and it makes everything that much harder.
