I also remember the problem with having a free for all as far as RPing went was that people were constantly complaining to me that their RPs were getting shoved down to the third page. I eventually had to put a ban on new RPs cuz of that. So I'd prefer not to go back to those days, thanks very much.
I don't see why being "pushed down to the third page" is a big problem, really. I always subscrbe to RPs I'm in so that I can see them all on the "My Account" page. So that was never really an issue, it just meant that there were lots of RPs going on. Like I said before, it wasn't just a couple of members, but many different people. If we're talking about people creating too many new ones, yes, that IS an issue, but I thought we had a "only post one RP a month" rule or something to stop that.

Having a recognisable plot for an RP isn't difficult and can be achieved by anyone if they have a mind to it. I don't want to go back to the days when all people wrote as a plot was "This is a school with powers. Just list your crush, power and post a gigantic screen stretching generic anime photo before you start!" I think we can come up with a happy medium.
I agree, I don't want one sentence plots either, but I do a happy medium. I don't want people to think they have to write a novel if they want to start a new RP. I figure as long as the plot includes some sort of background information and a conflict, it is enough. The example you gave has no background (other than "this is a school with powers") and absolutely no conflict, so obviously that's not satisfactory.

Hayley; if you could facelift the Newbies RP, then go right ahead. ^^ You can PM it to me, and I'll post it. I also had an idea of reviving the Tutoring RP, but instead of it being a tutoring one, have it as an average one that people can just use as a practicing one. Of course, I'll have to keep an eye on it to make sure people aren't spamming in it or anything.
Sure, I'm working on one now. ^_^ We'll talk more about this via PM. Randomness should stay random.


So I had to show my apartment the other day... I have a cat and we aren't allowed to have one. Usually our neighbours look after her during a showing, but they left to visit their parents last Friday and will be gone for the month. Luckily she's rather shy, so she stayed under the bed BUT the people never showed. The landlord came by an hour after when it was supposed to be shown and he told me they got lost and won't follow his directions, so he gave up. >_< I was stressed for nothing. Today I have another showing. Fun.

PM me the outline when you're done. ^^

I don't mean a novel, but a couple of paragraphs and perhaps some rules (ie saying whether powers are allowed, supernatural creatures are allowed, etc) would be fine. And of course, you do kinda need an intro so that people know what to post when they join.

Anyway, back to randomness... rained ALL DAY today. -.- Stupid English weather.

You know what I hate, Miranda? Inconsistent weather. I like both bright sunshine and torrential rain. Heavy snowfall too. I can't stand weak little showers that die in five minutes or a meek gleam from the sun, though. It just seems stupid.

Young Dracula is epiiiccc. I'm actually reluctant to watch too much a day in case I run out of episodes soon. I'm halfway through season 2, and the epic is almost too much. They're filming season 4 right now, though, so I'll have something to look forward to still when I'm done. This show was made for me.

Know what I really like? The joy of eating leftover Easter Egg at a time when everyone else has finished theirs. This one was so massive, it's lasted me all that time. Plus it had about six chocolate bars with it.

I sooo want to see that. ^^

Btw; random fact. I was looking up phrases in Russian with which to troll (joke; it's just something I do to annoy on Gaia in the game rooms) and found a site listing useful phrases. Apparently, the following one is considered a phrase you need to know in Russia:

Моё судно на воздушной подушке полно угрей
My hovercraft is full of eels.


In what context? O_o

Eels on a hovercraft, huh?

Perhaps it's the hipster alternative to snakes on a plane?

It's been ages since I thought about Gaia; how do they even moderate those forums?

Some forums are better moderated than others; GCD is one of the better modded ones, and GD is one of the worst. Whenever I go to Gaia forums, I only usually frequent GCD and the MLP forum, with an occasional visit to the zOMG! forum. Troll battling isn't a favourite hobby of mine. O_o
