  1. 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…

    • I have a question.

      Hey, I'm a little confused by the rules to the site. Especially number 3 and RP rule 2.

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

      • Showcase the Featured Roleplayers Wanted/Interest Check at the top margin of the website.

        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.

        • 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.…

          • please review resources/places to rollplay, many broken links and dead sites (NO DNS Entry)

            I was looking at the list of other rollplay sites, out of 10 I tried 6 were broken or totally dead (DNS Lookup can't find host address)

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

            • Create a total adventure editor, or at least enhance the place editor

              Add the ability to edit exit/entry points and source/destination links from the place editor, not just the short and long descriptions of the place.

              Along this same line add an objects editor, and a way to put objects in a location.

              What I would ideally like to see is a system where as an adventure author I could use the GUI editor to create a complete adventure like the original Crother and Woods "Adventure" (Colossal Cave) or any of the Zork (Infocom) adventures.

              Your reciprocal exits from the /build command need to be editable, and not always reciprocal (See Original…

              • fix the GM mode / commands

                especially when doing something like /build north
                if you hit enter accidentally pop up a list of locations to link to with a <new> option rather than just create a void room. I might have a very definite location in mind, but again if I mistype the name for the destination a new location is created, and now I can't get to my intended destination since an attempt to /build direction correct-location says a destination already exists in that direction.

                Your interface is very unforgiving

                • Allow players to tag characters via chat roleplay

                  Implement a feature on the IC live chat portion of a roleplay to allow players to tag other characters mentioned in their posts. It's tedious to have to tag characters by opening up a new tab, visiting the roleplay's tabs, and searching for your post to tag other characters.

                  • Private Player Chat

                    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…

                    • Fix "Tag" Bug

                      There seems to be a bug that keeps "rejected" and "removed" characters in the RP and it ends up holding a place in the "Tag" box. This bug is highly aggravating to me as a GM, as when I remove or reject a character from my RP, I don't want to see it in the "Tag" box when I'm posting because that box should be displaying only active participants who are in the RP. It has caused quite a few tag issues in the past and it's quite irritating.

                      • New GM Power

                        As a GM of several RP's, there come times when posts are accidentally double/triple posted due to a glitch. As a GM, I feel that I should have the moderating power in the RP I went to the trouble of creating to remove those extra posts that do not belong and that clutter the posting page.

                        So I suggest the following improvements on the GM's power:

                        * Remove unwanted posts from the RP's story
                        * Lock OOC threads in which they do not wish others to post in (because they're for informational purposes only and not discussion
                        * Set a…

                        • Allow duplicate posts if they fall under x amount of words

                          I can't tell you how many times I've tried posting something like "Hi" "Glad to have you back" or even just a smiley like ":)" without getting a prompt stating "someone has already said that." If a post isn't going to be any longer than a sentence, duplicates shouldn't be that big of a deal.

                                • Role-playing Groups

                                  This is a small idea that I recently just thought of.

                                  While the filter method of getting into roleplays that you're interested in is helpful as it does highlight role-plays with the tags that you have entered (or ignore them). Though most times the roleplays that I join end up not lifting off, or end up dying off. This isn't the fault of the filter, though it'd be nice not to wait for another roleplay to pop up that you like.

                                  So I would suggest that role-players would able to create little role-playing groups that include role-players that they hang…

                                  • allow users to send multi-recipient private messages.

                                    As a former moderator and a typically highly active roleplayer, I do understand the legitimate concern about spam or abuse of a multi-recipient PM system; however, enabling multi-recipient PMs by default with sanctions for reported and substantiated abuse is a fair compromise. Specifically, I propose that users who have made 25 posts in the forums (which is a second step from the 10 posts required to send PMs at all) should be granted the ability to send multi-recipient PMs. Spam is likely to be reported by using the summon moderator button, and then the individual user's privilege can be revoked.…

                                      • Remove the upper drop-down menu bar, or at least give an option to do so

                                        The upper menu bar makes it a bit over-hard to find the new roleplays. Sure, it has it's uses; the "my roleplays" menu makes it a breeze to get back to the RPs you're participating in, and the forum menu does offer a certain utility to the site. All in all, however, I feel like it doesn't quite add enough to make it something I'd like to use all the time. If there was at least an option to turn it off, I'd be happy, but as it stands I find it a bit too fiddly for my taste.

                                        • Make character tags searchable

                                          I'm in several RPs that are honestly really long, and sometimes I need to go back to old posts to refer to things that have already happened. The easiest way to find them would be to be able to search by tags, specifically pairs or multiples of tags together. Every post featuring Character X with Character Y showing up in one search result would be awesome, and save me a lot of scrolling when I'm trying to find one simple detail.
