Hello there. I am considering porting over and remaking an old roleplay of mine from another website. I've managed to work my way through the formatting code differences, but now I'm curious as to whether or not my rp's old 'look' would work or be out of place on roleplayerguild.

The site that this rp was built on, it was common practice for roleplays to have a 'frontpage'. This would mean that the first page of the thread would be taken up with different sections of the roleplay's setup. Such as a spot for the introduction, a spot for the setting, a spot for rules, a spot for other random things. And then "reserve" posts would be saved up for the remainder until the front page was filled. Which was 15 posts in total. Most of these reserves for the sake of neatness.

I have noticed that here, all the information seems to be being put all into the first post of the OOC section.

I feel as though if I were to do that with the rp i've got, it would end up looking far too long for just one post, and possibly look messy and jumbled.

Would it be considered excessive or weird if I were to use the way of formatting I'm used to? With the separation of pieces on the frontpage of the OOC?


You actually have two posts to work with; the 0th Post and your 1st OOC post.
Either way, I'm guessing I better put in some OP guidelines, I'll edit the first post and link everyone back to it.


Very cool. Do keep in mind that whether or not someone gets action taken against them by site staff for violating OP guidelines is a judgment call for staff, not the thread originator.

Good luck!

Naw, they were (somewhat rightfully) responding to some almost-certainly-too-on-the-nose cheekiness from a very old member (this guy) who oughta know better, but that's just my read.


ointhatcase: quitit.

erm, just to clarify, does this

then not apply to poo flinging off topic, spam, and other boards?


It does not.

Thats a nice idea. But actually I can. Just because you guys like it here, doesnt mean it cant be treated like any other thread. If a mod told me and mdk to 'knock it off' and then he continues to tag me after I directly asked him not to, (twice). he's on the fast track to the Ace Of Hearts special. This has gone beyond political disagreements, hes just trying to troll me and no amount of ron burgandy memes makes that less of an issue.

But I know youre dying to call me a hypocrite, find somewhere in this thread where ive continued to tag someone after they asked me not to, I'll wait.

And you might have missed the part where andrew was cursing at Xandrya because she made a fairly mild statement about gun control, but I didnt. Dont let your personal bias cloud your judgement fam.

There was salt on both sides

Where the heck do I even start.

I'll start here:

No, you can't.

OT initiators can set a behavior guideline at the start of their thread. (Which you never did.) They can request staff step in if someone violates those guidelines. (Which you can't do, because no OP guidelines.)

You CAN request staff step in if someone breaks rules.

he's on the fast track to the Ace Of Hearts special.


Not really, also, isn't there a rule against talking about bans? Really looks like you're trying to use someone else's ban to intimidate a new member. Just a first look impression, but hey.
Sorry for the delay on my end. I should have my initial IC up by tomorrow...


Ping me on Discord and we'll plot out a scene for us to write out.
All of 'em. All the time.

Looks cool, Deadbeat!
