But what happens if that's the only idea like that?

Well no. They're not a problem. Its just like they are there and the owners have not returned. It's kind of confusing for me. I mean, the idea would be like this:


"Approved threads - Currently open"

^^ There's the first page


"Approved threads - Closed"

^^ 2nd page


The RP's that are currently active and open would go on the first page

And the RP's that are closed would go on the 2nd page.
If they RP is open and not closed, then it is approved--- no reason to look through the list.
If you look through the threads that have been opened without permission, role-players are quick to correct whoever it was and they mods are very good about promptly closing them.

Well, then that means it's unique. That makes up for it not being popular--- the mods tend to try the unique ones because they're new, and they have a higher chance of being successful if they don't have competition.

Once a thread is approved, we leave it on the list because it is in essence still "approved" if closed due to inactivity. Unless something major happens on the thread, it is very possible that it could be reopened in the future by the owner or by another person at the owners request.

The staff approve the threads, as there is a lot more than just which thread would be popular that goes into the process. We also look at the members' activity in the section, if they are ready to own a thread, will commitment to it, etc. I know members want more input, and we do try to listen to what you want. But this will not be going to a vote anytime soon.

The reason for my 1st idea WAS because I found it hard to find ones that were open and active currently but were still approved.


About the 2nd idea. You know MissG. Instead of having the RP ideas be for the polls, why not have a poll about what RP the players would like to see next(Ex: A multiple animal RP, etc). But that doesn't necessarily mean that you have to pick what they want. Its to give you ideas.

Good idea!
I agree!!! I hate waiting for it be approved! This would speed it up!

Default Re: Suggestions for the RP section...2ND IDEA UPDATED

I don't RP but for the first one I think the RP's with owners that haven't been on in over a year should be closed so there isn't so much clutter and for the second one kind of confuses me.
