Pretty sure the weather gods heard me celebrating the reduction in the precipitation deficit in central Europe and said "Hold my beer" to each other. Fuck this heatwave, man.

Original join date: August 2008
Moderator since: 20 January 2016
Co-admin since: 5 May 2017

My responsibilities as co-admin concern moderation & community management almost exclusively. Questions and problems regarding the functionality and features of the site itself should be directed towards @Mahz or @LegendBegins. This includes such things as account deletion or taking usernames from old and defunct accounts.

27-year-old Dutch guy living in NL with my girlfriend and my daughter. I love Italian food and German beer. Also Belgian beer. And Dutch beer... just beer, really. Other than roleplaying, my favorite pastimes are playing videogames & watching movies, attending music festivals, raves and concerts and discussing philosophy, economics and science while drinking the night away with my friends.

In the old version of the Guild I was the record holder for 'Most Infraction Points Without Being Permabanned'.

My primary roleplaying genres are fantasy and science fiction. Big fan of The Elder Scrolls, The Lord of the Rings, Warhammer 40,000, Mass Effect, Fallout and others.

Spoops' character wasn't even called Caleb. It was Calen.
Hi there and welcome to the Guild!
Those are wonderful covers, @CW Author!

I don't know if this is too private a question to ask, but I've always been curious. How successful has your self-publishing venture been thus far in terms of sales? What's Amazon like when it comes to exposure? Do you have to do all of the marketing yourself or is there some kind of recommendation algorithm you can try to game, like YouTube has?

Welcome back to the Guild! I look forward to your thread and the details about your book series. Happy roleplaying!

We'll resume using this thread for updates and conversation regarding site upgrades and features. If you have any questions or suggestions for @Mahz and @LegendBegins, ask them here.
That said, there are still roleplaying forums that have more users and more activity than the Guild. The staff team and I have started looking into ways we can 'advertise' the site more and siphon some folks from the greater play-by-post roleplaying community.

Suggestions are also welcome, by the by.
Forums in general are in decline. The flight of social media and conglomerate websites like reddit are "to blame", if you want to speak in those terms. People like having a small handful of platforms that contain all their interests. Twitter fandoms, Instagram communities, subreddits, are all more convenient than a different forum for everything, so newer generations of internet denizens don't gravitate towards forums like we did 10-15 years ago.
My absolute favorite is Butter Flies. I pictured the whole thing as a Pixar movie in my mind's eye while reading and the last stanza made me chuckle out loud. Well done!

My runner-up is The summer of 20. I don't know much about poetry, but I think I recognized a few actual poetry and rhyming styles and tropes, and the use of language is eloquent and evocative.

I'd like to thank everyone for participating and providing me with some enjoyable reading.
