personally i think that this could really ugly really quickly…it depends on who is running it, etc.
hey guys, we’ve been thinking (and really, is that ever a good thing?) and there were a few things we wanted to share with you. first of all, we’ve decided that seven days is a little harsh, and we’re changing the requirements for reserving a new face/making a new character. as of right now, you will only need to wait three days after making a character to make a new character if your creative juices won’t stop flowing and you have the muse. we will however still be requiring a shipper for each of your existing characters, as well as a legit thread (no comms) for each character to ensure that all of your characters are getting love before you add another to your ensemble.
the second thing we wanted to share is more of a reminder. characters can (and will) be killed on this site, not just NPC’s. for the first event, we decided to injure a character, but that was nothing. as stated in our rules, we can kill any character to move plot along, which means that nobody is safe. your characters, my characters, every character on the site is a possible victim, of not only the falls church killer, but of any untimely death. please keep that in mind. we will however give you a littlenotice if your character is going to bite the dust. probably. ANYWAY, once a character dies, the face may go to the face graveyard. this basically means that if a character is important to the plot, or has just had a lot of love on the site with plotting, threads, etc. the face will not be in use. the five big canons’ faces will stay dead if any of them are killed, other faces might just be ‘retired’ for two weeks before being up for grabs again. this is just to prevent a character walking around immediately after another character’s death with the same face. awkwarrrrd.
that being said, if you have lost your muse for a specific character or you simply want to hurt them (and yourself), you can offer your character up to die. this does not mean that your character will be murdered. every character is fair game, but hey, we know that it’s fun to torture yourself (and your characters.) if you would like to kill off one of your characters, just shoot a pm to a member of the staff team on their admin account, and we will see what we can do to satisfy your masochistic needs. (no really, give us alllllll the victims.) nobody is safe.
this is a small thing, but we’re moving the pridefest to the past/au forum because, well, it’s in the past. so hop in your tardis and go finish your threads. or something. i don’t even watch doctor who is that even right? the pridefest thread can still be found here. you can still (and are encouraged to) thread in the event, but we have some new and exciting things in the works. (be afraid, very afraid.)
we’re creating a new forum for ‘internet broadcasts’ which can be found here. basically, it’s exactly what it sounds like. it’s a news forum where stories will be posted about the events and happenings around d.c. and quantico. what does this mean for you? you can and are encouraged to reply to the threads in character! it’s just a fun little thing we’re adding to the site to follow plot progression. we’ll try to keep it updated with any major plot points, so if there’s something you think we missed or needs to be covered, don’t be afraid to holla at yo staff team. really though, we’re not perfect. we miss things. suggestions are always welcome.
finally, we love you. thank you for putting up with my rambles here. you rock, don’t ever change. seriously, we love you. this site would literally be nothing without you. if you actually read all of this, you deserve a cookie.
p.s. if you’re a new member:
goddamnit you guys.

WHATS UP GUYS. the initial activity check is over, we’ve got a brand spankin’ new skin, and we’ve got our first site event up: dc pridefest! june is national lgbtq month, and pridefest is one of the largest events to take over washington, dc. whether you are out and proud or just a supporter of the lgbtq movement, pridefest is a wonderful city-wide event with parades, live bands, and more! come out and celebrate a huge city-wide party (:
if you were archived by mistake during the activity check, or if you want to come back to the board (we hope you do!), just repost your application. all of your claims will need to be re-claimed as well upon your re-acceptance. if you have any questions, shoot the staff a pm!
i feel like this is a huge issue in rp lately. just because you join to fill a wanted ad doesn’t mean you are exclusively plotting with that character. if they are ignoring your thread and your attempts to contact them, then move on with your character and plot with other people! you worked hard on your character, so you deserve to let him/her flourish on plots that may not involve the original intended ad that you are filling. don’t wait around on someone who isn’t reciprocating; you obviously joined the site for more than just the one wanted ad, so make new friends and plot with other people! (:
honestly it’s a lot of luck and, as much as it shouldn’t be about this, but if “popular” rpers come into your tag and join, then people usually follow them. sometimes sites can have an amazing plot with an active and engaging staff, but doesn’t do well. other times, a site can be very…simple, and just by association, people flock to it. the big thing to do is if you are passionate about your project and you have SOME members, then keep going. don’t let numbers dictate your site’s happiness or success. nowdays, a site can be active during the first week and then fade away until they make a new project. you just gotta stick to your guns, and if a site is worth it, you’ll push through (:
