It's hard to reply to every point made in this thread. Just know that I regularly mine ideas from this thread when I have some spare time, especially to remember what I was last working on. It also cuts into my Guild work time to clarify my thoughts on every suggestion and serves as a channel for procrastination.
I want to resume work this weekend.@Lady Amalthea
Good ideas. I definitely like higher level tags like "Magic" and "Character Death". Especially the latter since it's a fundamental game mechanic distinction.@Kuro
Yeah, that's a good point -- isolating mature RPs from the rest so that you're not having to sift through one when you're only looking for the other. Even the roleplayerguild.com/roleplays
view doesn't give you the option to blacklist tags, unfortunately. @Calle
I think I wrote a post within the last 5 pages that responded to the sidebar chat concern, but I have two ideas that should declutter the sidebar: only your first status message per X minutes appears in the sidebar, and a "Reply" button that lets you reply to a status without writing your own status -- as if it were a tiny forum topic. @LegendBegins @Shienvien
Good points. The PW is already doomed by its intrinsic lack of mass appeal since it's essentially a single roleplay. It's at the top as a trade-off that was supposed to be temporary. And by the time I got around to work on the Guild again since PW was created, the PW system was reset with a new theme which I thought would've been an unfair time to move it. I will move it soon.
It's a good point that it also may make the forum look like a Star Wars fanfic forum to new visitors.
