    Hey everyone.

    Jorick, don't worry, I think everyone sort of assumes I'm a guy when they see my name and sig. Its not exactly screaming "I'm a girl."

    Is this game open to newcomers?

    Yes, I suppose, but you have to be approved by me first. This is a real story here, not just a thing to rack up posts. Stick your character up in the profile thread and make sure you know the rules.

    How long does it usually take for an RP to start? I'm obsessively checking this every hour of the day, but no results... :O

    Thanks for the response, but I've changed my mind. I'm sure there are more welcoming rpg groups to join.

    I went and looked at the thread that got RPG #20 created, and it looks like that one took about 3 weeks from the thread being created to the RPG section being made. But I don't know if that's a normal time it takes, or there were other reasons for it being that long.

    Here's an idea: why not just create a social group devoted to the rpg? Make it invite only, to keep out the idiots, and everyone can post there. This thread can be preserved for questions and suchlike. It means there'll be no more hanging around, and no danger of spammers turning up unannounced...

    sounds good, but what do you mean by "social group" like, we exchange PMs? clarification, TFS!

    Click on the social groups link on your control panel (under 'networking'); they're really just a separate place away from the main forum where like-minded people can, well, do whatever they want. Because it's not on the main site it's less likely to attract spammers or curious newbies, and if it's invite only you'll have the power to decide who posts.:)

    Hey, can I join in? And the social group idea sounds good; me and Normf used to do that in a social group, works very well!

    Can I get into the social group? I know I'm a 'curious noob', but I'm a determined, curious noob. :)

    *Facepalm* No, this is where you sign up for the game. Presuming Anir hasn't objected to you joining, you're already a member. When the social group is set up, you'll get an invitation to join. Or not. I'm not a mind-reader.:duh:

    hey guys, just got word back from the moderator about starting up our own thread. Do we still want that or are we just going to do the social group thing?

    I don't know if I got to join, but I can still come with some advise...

    The social group might be the better idea when thinking of the spammers, but then you can't have more than one line... Like if you want one section for the evil and one for the good (might just be a bad example, but you get the picture).

    I'd like the forum section more, for the sake of having multiple threads. A social group might work, but it would be very limiting. So I vote for getting the section made.

    But if we go that route, I think we should also try and invite good RPers to join this one... As of now, there are only about 8 people signed up, I think, and more would be better if we're going to have a whole forum section made.

    As for spammers, you can always ask the mod to delete their posts. Though I think most spammers don't bother with this section unless they're seriously interested in it. :)
