TBH, even before the big database dump, I felt like the forums were underutilized. There was and is a LOT more room for RP-oriented stuff. Granted, our community (or at least the, like, 10 people that frequent the forums) is pretty small, but having a multitude of IC forums (either for RP logs, or just straight-up launching new stuff) could be kind of neat.

I mean, it costs nothing to make new forums/categories on these things. No harm in trying, yeah?

Not to inundate you all with yet another one of my "back in the day" anecdotes, but back in the day, I used to be on a chat-based "system" that also had corresponding forums for people to log their events, post transcripts of combat for third-party judging, start new stories, post detailed character bios, etc. etc. Forums can do a lot to augment/enhance the chat experience, and vice-versa. Building a strong IC presence here (on the forums) could go a long way toward ensuring TK's longevity. I dunno, could also go without saying that I might just be a bit nuts.

I've been involved in similar things before, and it honestly is pretty cool. But people have to be dedicated enough to do it, and there has to be certain conditions etc between players for it to function properly, etc. It's also best to have experienced players, but ones who haven't gotten stuck in certain paradigms and think they are entitled due to that experience. (I can't tell you how many times people have told me they had the right to do whatever they wanted cause they played some character X amount of years. Or because they did some closed-story RP or several with a predetermined outcome/outcomes that allowed them to become "powerful".)

I know probably nobody cares but I made a thread a bit ago asking on whether or not the forum would host RP again. Considering what happened with the arena, I won't blame anyone if they don't want to listen. (Though it has gotten better since it came back. It tends to wax and wane.) If there was such a thing, it probably should be regulated though.

For me, a mobile app would be huge.  I find it hard to be at a computer for 5 hours every night, but I'm around doing other things.  If I had an app on my phone or tablet that I could see new posts as they come in, easily /whois people and see profiles, and stay connected, I'd RP a lot more.

Also, if there is one please let me know, that'd be great.

Well, this thread has been suspiciously civil so far...
