Just who am I? Am I the same person that wakes up after a night of rest, or am I someone completely different? What would I do if I were to discover that I am a doppelgänger of my own existence, awakened only at the dawn of the day? These are thoughts that I have asked myself for as long as I can remember; an endless cross-examination of queries and questions that still reveal no true answer nor solution. I can however tell you who I currently am, what I have done within my past, and what it is that I wish to accomplish for my future.

To begin this journey I will introduce myself with my official title. My name is Nutter, and that is all you need to know... for now. The truth is that I have been called this alias for the longest of times, dating back to my childhood days as an identity that parasitically infects the tongue of every person I cross paths with. I cannot control this contagion nor do I have a desire to hinder it's spread; therefore I live, breathe, and spread my madness to all those around me, all the while enjoying every moment of it.

While my life has been filled with a variety of adventures and achievements, there have been times where these moments have cast me into the shadows of my very existence. They are challenges, struggles even, which have shaped me into the very person I currently am. Those who I have met often tell me how I am a unique combination of knowledgeable, funny, and helpful, all topped with a small bit of wit. I enjoy having the regular banter with those who I can call my friends, I relish in my creative imagination, and I am a social introvert — if there ever was such a thing.

When the day comes to a close I guess none of this really matters. I cannot paint a picture of myself within your own mind from the expressive words that I have typed onto this screen. All I can do is spark an interest to see if you are willing to take the bait, willing to leap down that rabbit hole, and willing discover the identity of the man behind the mask known as NuttsnBolts.

I have been roleplaying for a several years now, focusing on mostly casual to advance level story writing. If these adventures are rich, detailed and filled with twists and turns around every corner, then you will surely have me hooked in for the ride.

On the topic of writing style I do on occasion to use colours tones, pictures, music, and a variety of stylised formatting techniques as I do find concentrating on walls of white text bothersome. Generally I will try my best with grammar and spelling however if you happen see any edits then I have most likely latched onto a word to use it several times in a writing piece, or made a dumb spelling mistake.

Any other roleplaying details about myself and my interests can be found in the Personal Links below as I generally keep those updated with designs, ideas and preferences. If you have any other questions you are free to PM me at any point.

Awesome work Legend!
I find the GM x player mix just never works out and you're always left carrying the story. Most of the RPs I've had that have failed are because people expect you to create ALL the details when the best stories are the ones where it's a balance between your combined interest.

I also like to add subtle hints for when the other character is near, or able to interact with my character. It's a real pain when the partner creates what feels like their own solo adventure, and it's also frustrating when they fill it with a spectacle of NPCs (one or two no name fillers are ok). I've backed out of 1x1s for both these reasons.
@Typical Looking through another way that I can view the contents of the thread, there was no information besides multiple posts with the phrase "-Redacted-" over and over again.
There are heaps of people that RP in private and I can visually see the numbers of public and private posts, so the activity is there.

What you may find that even though a lot of people are home in isolation and quarantine, they are still living busy lives and aren't exactly in a holiday mode. People aren't going to the movies, aren't going to holiday destinations, and even in some places aren't leaving their home except for groceries. That all hinders creativity greatly as you are physically limited in activities and have to stay within your home.

There have been studies and checks done to show that people have generally become more laxed and lazy while at home during this period, and people have been sleeping more often as there's no reason to rush to get to a workplace by 9. There's home schooling aspects too which reduces free time as well. Those who are still working, me being one of them, are dealing with so much workload that it is physically exhausting.
Everyone flipped their lives and still dunno where they stand.

So I don't think the site is kinda dead, I just think that people have been distracted with other events in the world and it's taken a toll mentally and creatively. We're not in a bubble immune from the world and if people are struggling to work out what to cook for dinner for the 10th night in a row as no take aways are open, they're gonna struggle to RP.
Hey Nadia and welcome, even though it's not your welcome thread, but that's all good.

If you're look to start a roleplay what you could do is add some details on what sort things interest you or maybe even a few sample plots you would like to play out. Help narrow down some of those interest and it might make it easier for people to see if you're right for them as well.

Have you also had a look at others' interest checks?

As for having a chat, my inbox is pretty much open all the time. You can also catch me occasionally on the discord server along with many others. We're pretty friendly and don't bite... Maybe some will, but most won't. Lol

@Inkarnate@Mao Mao Just chiming in cause I can answer these a bit.

Currently the only mods are Legend, Poo and Myself with Stark away with her personal life at the moment. Last I spoke to her both her and her partner were quite busy with their workloads, and since they live in New York there's also an added layer of complexity there at the moment. She does look after the FB side of things at the moment, but she is an absolute wealth of knowledge when she has the time to be around.

Byrd's resignation did also open up a position, however I can say that there isn't specifically a set number/limitation of mods that we have to reach. A good example is the number of dedicated Discord Chat mods we have with I believe 6 being the most we had at one time with the current being about 4.

Time will tell and we'll just have to wait and see how it all goes.

(Original post was deleted and moved to a different thread by me)

Actually, are the news mod going to be divided by sections of which site or are they just going to be roaming around?


I assume you mean new, not news?

We don't really have section mods here aside from the persistent world section, which are more GMs. That's mostly due to how some matters can span across multiple sections from roleplays scenarios, to spambot attacks, to name changes, and even resolving reports that come through. I've seen what you're referring to before on other forums with something like an "off topic mod" of sorts, but that's not really how the guild operates.

<Snipped quote by Ruby>
To clarify, you mean this is not currently being discussed by staff, correct?


Most, if not all topics are raised to staff in one way or another but we haven't had a need to readdress the rules at this point as they seem to cover most topics, and they have been tweaked slightly over the three years to cover some additional aspects, (eg. The "don't plagiarise" was added in later on).

They probably are due for a reevaluation but that's something that we will have to tackle at a later date when we do have time (oddly enough I myself have been busier at work with this virus than many others) but we do have some new staff members and have had quite a few applications too. My thoughts are when we conclude these we could do a reevaluation and clarity cleanup then.

*Moved to the correct subforum*

Will say however that any suggestions are really just a discussion since Mahz does his own thing and site coding is more of a hobby for him. He'll be back at some point and he does pop up occasionally in the Discord to say hi, but we haven't had any major updates in a while with only a few bugs being fixed now and then.
