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? 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 what I currently am, what I have done in 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 am today. 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. I do find that a large portion of the characters tend to be female — a personal choice that seems to also extend towards gaming as well — but as I become a better writer I am challenging myself to improve my male personas.

On the topic of writing style I tend to use colours, pictures, music, and a variety of stylised formatting techniques as I do have a difficult time in concentrating on walls of white text. Seeing as how I can be quite the visual and artistic individual I have found this tactic can be effectively used to counter this unusual dilemma. 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 should be keeping those updated with designs, ideas and preferences. If you have any other questions you are free to PM me at any point.

Always good to see when people make an eventual return.
@Marrok all good. Easy fix
@Lady Amalthea Mods cannot edit posts (which is probably a good idea anyways), so we usually remove them.

I'd ask the person to remove or resize the image as it shouldn't be too hard given there's heaps of programs online. I'm assuming it's like wallpaper size too and that's a little much for people as well.

I can hide it, but would rather not do that yet as they won't be able to edit the post unless they are a GM or co-GM in the RP itself.

Let me know how it goes.

@Mahz

I'm not a fan of the statusupdatesd being used as chat, sometimes it's just people commenting to each other for a while. Maybe there could be an option to reply/comment directly to a status, instead of people having to make their own status to reply to something. The comments could be expanded if people want to read them, but be hidden by default in the recent status bar.
The should be able to be deleted by a mod or creator of the original status that is being replied to, showing 'deleted comment', so any hateful comments on the status update won't remain visible.

Status updates were never meant to be designed for a Reddit style conversation, but more like a running feed for updates you wanna post. The conversations that are had are really just a by product from people keeping watch. Originally the main aim of the status bar when it was designed was to show activity on the forum so visitors can see that it is quite active.

We as the mods can already delete status updates. It's just difficult to keep up with what's happening so we may only address the really bad ones that we see.

Also, maybe you could add a bar under the facebook group for the discord chat, people might notice it better there and start using that more for chats. Plus, it keeps all the social media together.

With the Discord button, it probably would make it less known if it was moved down to where the rules are as that section is only visible on the main site front. Currently it's visible on every page and thread, however I'll be blunt and point out that if you can't see it on the top bar then you really aren't looking for it in the first place.

I've seen other suggest re-arranging the forums and I'm for moving the Persistent World under the Roleplaying section or as a subcategory of the Roleplaying section.
Under the Roleplays could be the category for the things that are still related to roleplays and creativity in general, like the general roleplay discussion, character sheets, articles and guides, but also the gallery and the writing contests.
And under that the off-topic section for off-topic discussion, the spam forum, etc.

With Persistent RPs, Mahz has stated that he has a reason for keeping them higher up and that is due to visibility. Moving it down bellow means that less people are likely to see it and thus you will have less activity. This also got raised with the competition guys when they questioned why competitions were so far down, should perhaps be up near the News, and how they struggled to get people, but apparently Mahz forgot to mention they had access to the sidebar competition advert.

The issue is that no matter what the layout, something will suffer. The best thing to do is let common and regular things that 80% of people come here for, like off topic and roleplays, slide down to make way for important other sections or sections that need a boost.

@Mahz Since a few others were suggesting a few things:

I'm sure we don't need a ton of categories, but could the more "mature" 1x1 checks be separated from the regular 1x1 checks? I have nothing against those that want to RP that, but a large portion of the 1x1 checks are "wanna erp ;)" checks and are a pain to search through. When I was talking to Nutts and a few others about it, Nutts suggested a "smut tag", which I figure could work if separating the section altogether is too much. Something like that could help others that don't want to get their freaky on, since the 18+ tag commonly used in 1x1 checks can also mean drugs, alcohol, violence and so on and so forth. That way someone won't find themselves interested in an idea only to find out that the potential partner wants ERP in the plot.

Maybe a seperate 18+ section could be added too, one that would only be hidden for people who aren't 18 or who aren't logged into the site. There would have to be a date of birth added to the registration form for that.

This is probably stupid, but it popped into my mind while scrolling through 1x1: Tags for the different shippings that Roleplayers look for (MxM, FxF, MxF). Again, it's not a huge deal, but a lot of people only Roleplay one or two in my experience. It may be easier to just be able to search the tags for one of the three instead of constantly writing "Male looking for females" or "Female looking for males" in titles, but that may just be me.


Few things here...

Smut tag would be nice to see. Currently 18+ is for anyone who wants to have any sort of adult content (drugs, alcohol, violence, etc) or only wants 18+ aged players. The issue is that it's used everywhere and not just in the 1x1s section. Additionally when you do go into a 1x1 that does have it, it is rather funny to see how the thread is advertised as '18+' but then contains "fade to black only". In general... it just needs a little more clarity for people looking for, or not looking for, smut.

With placing in your date of birth... there is a clear reason why porn sites dropped that over 10 years ago. It does not work. On the internet, everyone is 18 if you select the right year. I do however think a private section may be a good idea, but on the same token we have the PM system.

With the mxm, fxf, mxf tags idea I'm not too sure if they'll be used properly or cover all the interest people want. There's a few people who identify as not male or female, both, furries, or even some other mix. I think the oddest one I've seen and had mentioned to me was a player who advertised as female "with extra", but the poster was adamant that Futa/Shemale is still female.
@AllycatDeleted.

For your own information, if you need to delete a large sum of posts like that in the figure it might be easier to make a new thread and just copy the posts over you want, and we can delete the old thread. The concern is that hidden/deleted posts are still indexed on the page and the next post will be next in line and wont bump back up the post order.

Eg:
You have 21 posts on two pages (20 page one, 1 page two)
I delete 19 posts off page one.
Page one will only show 1 post before showing the next page button as post 1 on page two is still the '21st post', even if it's the second visible one.

You don't notice this with the occasional delete, just large scale ones. Gets harder as well in established posts, but can't help that.
All changed

@Gareth No suggestion is silly as it might be good in the right situation. Without silly ideas you don't have creative freedom.
<Snipped quote by NuttsnBolts>

Suddenly i get the impression this is not casual anymore - so much detail Oo.


Haha. You'll be fine. There's a few of us around that spend a lot of time personalising CS sheets with artistic flair. I myself have done some really detailed stuff before but I stuck with a simpler, easier format for this one. I also haven't properly RPed in a while so I need to knock off a bit of the rust, so to speak.

If you want any advice on styling I'm sure one of us can help you out, but don't feel like you have to step up your game or anything if you're comfortable with your level.

From the looks of the pace as well, it's not gonna be too fast so you might be able to spend some time on your posts in order to make something you're proud of.
