Hello, my poppets! Lately, I've been getting some questions about the game and how it works from people who're unfamiliar with journal RP. So I've put together this FAQ to try and help them sort things out. I'm sure I've missed things, so please read it and let me know if anything's unclear or if there's something you'd add. Thanks!
Edit: new language in dark red to make it easier to find.

Things have been going on, people! So many things.

First: advertising.
  • Got some ads up around DW, as was suggested; hopefully those work. (If you're here thanks to the ads, please let me know!)

  • Working on advertising off DW. I'm looking at Hollow Art, directories, and Tumblr right now. Maybe Reddit. Suggestions?

  • Any suggestions for gifs I can use for banners/buttons to advertise the comm? Or do we want to maintain our minimalist cool?

  • When I have a selection made, I'll put up a post with buttons for forum signatures and things. Anyone who'd like to contribute some, please drop them in the comments.

Community Maintenance
  • The profile for the main comm has been changed. I'll make it fancier later. The old one has been archived here.

  • We still like the front page layout for the comms, right? Or should I look for new ones?

  • Do we want a Valentine's event next month? If so, any ideas for it or volunteers to play Cupid?

  • Would anyone be interested in optional contests? I could do, say, a monthly writing prompt, and whichever I like best gets a little badge or something.

  • Would Nexus Locations be more useful with pictures, Wiki pages, menus? I for one love old menus and cookbooks, so it wouldn't be hard for me to get a collection of menus together to give people an idea of what might be on the menu at a medieval tavern vs a mid-century diner.

  • Would anyone be interested in a group Pinterest board for sharing pictures/maps/what-have-you? It might be a good way to build up a communal mental image of what the Nexus and its inhabitants look like. I could start a couple different boards if people would prefer things are a little more organized.

  • Are there other kinds of resources you'd like to see/find useful? Writing prompts, suggestions for where/how to find PBs, HTML tutorials?

Hey everyone! Just a few things, nothing drastic or dramatic.

First, I want to say good job everyone on the demon invasion. That went really well and I'm glad everyone got along and had a good time doing it. And a special thank you to Katsuya's player for running the event!

Second, I've been thinking of adding a rule about putting a character's name and source in profiles so that interested parties have some idea what they're dealing with. I wouldn't demand anything elaborate, just a "Joe Shmoe is from The Joe Shmoe Show" or something like that, and a note about if the character's an OC or AU or rule 63 or whatever. Your thoughts?

Third, and related to the second, are there any rules you think need to be added, eliminated, or edited?

Fourth, how are we feeling about tags? Do we need more tags for the Nexus or here in OOC? Are there tags you don't understand that you think we should get rid of?

Fifth, I personally find it a lot of fun when different characters refer to and use the same Nexus locations: a cafe, a book store, a street cart selling falafel, what have you. If you've used or seen used a location you like, please let me know; I'll start a running list of locations for people to refer to. Credit will be given to whomever writes/adds to the setting.
