Spring Y3
8.29.19 - 10.13.19

It's time for an update to how we handle time! Now that we are a couple days into the first season of this year, I'll explain how our flow of time will now work. We will be keeping double time, but our time will be more fluid. Essentially, from here on, you will be allowed to back date threads.

All threads from here on out will need to have a date AND time listed in the thread title. This will allow users to see exactly when a thread occurred.

Previously, if you posted a new thread, the time and date that thread was posted was the time in which that event was happening. We are altering the rules regarding timelines to allow you to backdate threads for any date in the current year. (This is Year 3.) So this year started on 8.29.19. You may date a thread from the current date backward to the first day of the year. So as today is 8/31/19, you may date a thread for any date between 8/29/19 and 8.31.19. You may not date threads forward.

So as the year progresses, you will be able to date threads for any time that has already passed in the year, but you must be careful not to break your own character's timelines. The best way to track a character's timeline is to go to their profile and click the button on it labelled "Thread Log". It shows every thread the character has ever participated in. Likewise, events that would break your timelines should also be carefully monitored. So, for example, if I posted a thread for a character dated for today in the desert, it would break the timeline if I posted a thread dated for the 29th in which they ended up dying.

Excessively breaking your own timelines or other characters' timelines is frowned upon and if done consistently, Staff may intervene. Tomorrow I will be instituting changes to leader logs and pregnancies that reflect these changes, so keep an eye out! Please DM or PM a staffer if you have any questions.

I Don't Know About You,
but I'm feelin' 22
but sometimes I notice that sometimes myself
and others have little "roleplay habits",
either in our characters or in the way we write them.

Most times, this is just a style, a flair of our own, and it's
cool, and we love it! We really do! So it's definitely not a
problem.

And sometimes, we just want to try new things. I know I do!

So if you suspect there's a pattern within your roleplaying
or writing and characterization in general,
and you think you may want to try something new,
feel free to post it here using the code below!

The next poster(s) will try to assist ye on your quest
to figure out what your patterns are, and possibly
think of new, fun, and challenging ways to do things
a little differently!

It is recommended that you help others as well in their journeys
to trying new things. We are nothing if not a community that
cares for and supports each other.

Rules
In this game, a person uses the code and posts,

First,
the patterns they see or do not see in the poster before/above them.

Second,
the criticisms, challenges, and possible advice (please be fair, kind, and CONSTRUCTIVE!)
for the patterns that the previous poster wishes to challenge/improve upon.
(If you're unsure, just look at what they saw about themselves in their post,
and/or ask on Discord!)
Third,
What patterns you see in yourself that you may want to challenge/improve upon,
and preferably why, but "why" is sort of optional.
(Please try to make it easy for others to see where you would like some help,
advice, challenges, etc.!)

NOTE THAT
You may only want to give constructive criticisms, challenges,
and/or suggestions to previous posters, without a self-analysis.
This is fine, and I will allow it. It just means that the next posters 
will have to help out the last person who put a self-analysis in their
post. It is RECOMMENDED, in order to keep the game running,
that people FREQUENTLY and CONSISTENTLY put in a self-analysis
and ask for another person's opinion in their posts. So that we
aren't all trying to help out the same person, y'know?

And then it will be the next poster's turn to do the same for you, and
themselves.

WARNINGS:
- First of all, you should know that this is a game meant to help ourselves
and others IMPROVE and GROW. You must provide CONSTRUCTIVE Criticisms,
FUN and INTERESTING Challenges, not impossible ones,
and you must NEVER degrade anyone else's 
characters, writing, or roleplaying via this game.
Seriously, you should never actually be doing that ever. Anywhere. 

- Second of all, this is a game where constructive criticism is involved.
You will not and should not be made to feel bad about your roleplaying or
writing, but flaws may be pointed out. Asking for criticism here by posting
is agreeing to be okay with it if somebody points out patterns or parts of
your writing that they think you can improve upon in a public space. 
Of course,
you have every right to explain to them something you do on purpose
and like about your style, on Discord or elsewhere, peacefully, exempt of drama.

Thank you for reading all this!
Hopefully you'll have fun.

  • Code:
    [b]Analysis of Previous Poster:[/b]
    Here you can say what YOU'VE noticed in the previous poster's
    writing, roleplaying, characters, etc. Do it like journalism, no opinions yet.
    Possibly discuss with them somewhere else about whether they noticed,
    whether they want to try anything new regarding it, etc.

    [b]Constructive Criticisms / Challenges / Advice:[/b]
    Go ahead and try to help the previous poster out now,
    based on the things THEY want to improve upon or try differently, not yourself.
    You can ask them what they might be looking to try, or to get better at, through another medium.
    Your ideas and  suggestions relating to that go here!

    [b](Semi-Optional) Self-Analysis:[/b]
    Think about your own writing, roleplaying, character design,
    the whole lot of it. What patterns do you see? Is there anything you'd like to try differently?
    Perhaps provide the reasons for why you might want to try something new.
    REMEMBER that by doing this, you agree to let others attempt to help you out in this public forum!

((I am aware that I did not post myself first as an example of an analysis. This is because I wrote much in these lengthy long-winded rules and now I must go.
The next/first poster is thus exempt from having to analyze me unless they desire to!))

(Semi-Optional) Self-Analysis:
In my own writing i find that i dont really put much personality into my characters. They could be the most out there charries yet i find them boring. Most of my writing is just the scenery or what they are doing. Not so much of their thoughts and how they think. I also say 'he said, she said' way too much for my liking.

My only thing i do not know how to get myself out of this way of thinking. Lately ive been monitoring how they think and writing a bit more on that but it just doesnt come naturally yet.
