Heh, yeah, first post 2005. The permanence of the internet is so weird sometimes.

You know, that's a good question. Is Gias still around even? I would guess not since nobody seems to know him.

Hm, well, it makes me glad I'm not part of your RP, because I couldn't be bothered to read all that. Partly because I'm simply lazy of course, but also because I'm not sure I actually get value for the time spent. I'm not sure I actually care about most of the stuff when people make a page long post. A fundamental part of roleplaying is that interactive, that there's interaction. Long posts are a bit selfish in a sense, in that it's more about the details and inner feelings and minutia of your own character, rather than just giving your actions for the other party to respond to in an efficient manner. So it's not a compliment no.

But not a really an insult either, probably just YMMW. If you're into it, if you like not just writing long posts, but also reading each others, then that's cool, I'm just not really into it.

I'm also much of the mind of Tuor and Karo here:
Sentios wrote:
Tuor wrote:Haha, is there a post length minimum here I'm not aware of?

There was never a true set minimum, but there was strong encouragement to have quality posts. A lot of people just assumed that wordy and quality were the same things.

Karo wrote:It was assumed that posts should be at least more than one sentence, but that was it really. Most of us just wound up feeding off of each other as our writing improved.

Though, I think another factor is time efficiency. You don't know when the other guy is going to be online to post his response, so you want to get as much shit done in one post as possible. Like when two characters are having a conversation and they make this big-ass posts with multiple questions and statements in each. Which is really artificial and doesn't resemble realistic dialogue at all. It becomes problematic when people do this EVEN when the other person is online and they could just short-fire lines out like people actually do when they talk, just because they're used to making big posts at a time.

Gias hasn't been around since '05

He was a guy with a good idea, is who he was. Who was tired of seeing loads of failed Rp threads clogging up the forum
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

Gias left not long after that, if I remember correctly.
Zath: Behold, Karo: The only woman in existence who can make Fenix shut the fuck up.
Redsnow: That, and, frankly, if Karo doesn't like you that much, your character is probably going to die soon after his acceptance anyway.
Keiran: Bad RPs don't get picked, unmemberable RPs get ignored.
Zelosse: I don't usually laugh at blatant attitude, but when I do. It usually involves Karo.

Been some time, think Gias was here about a year. One of the many folks who had what it takes to become a good member if they stayed, but just disappeared. But he left an idea here that really helped the place. Like Tuor said, we had lots of threads around that just cluttered things up.

Like that old DBZ RP that went pretty much nowhere. lol

Thinking of all the games that flatlined during that time makes my head hurt.

... There was really nothing 'boss' about any of that, at all.

I guess we invite this on ourselves when we call it "the weirdness".

Rule of the King #2: he loves to talk about anime....and his fave is Soul Eater
Rule of the King #3: he likes to say meow alot from only having cats as pets his entire life
Meow....am I the only one wondering why on this site Soul Eater is fairly well known....but literally EVERYWHERE else it's like ''What in the Hell is Soul Eater''
that's actually how it works when I'm talking about Bleedman Comics too! I ask if anyone's ever heard of Grim Tales(or any of his other comics), then they're like ''huh?"...it's Weird!

I guess because we're "cultured" enough that we know a little bit about anime beyond the usual DBZ/Naruto/Bleach/One Piece fare? But yeah, while certainly not everyone or even the majority of the anime community may know Soul Eater, it's still a quite popular and known anime in a relative sense.

I don't enjoy Soul Eater as much as I feel I should do. I feel far too much is left unexplained, or tends too much towards absurdity for the sake of humor, to make the setting as engaging as some others.
