PostSubject: Just a thought I had   Thu May 12, 2016 7:40 pm

I don't mean this in any mean way possible, but should we move on to a different Metroid RP site(or make a new one)? None of the administrators(Toasty is pretty much our closest thing to an admin and only has moderator privileges I think) have been online in actual years and I feel like that'd understandably put some people off registering here, which would contribute to site deadness.
I'd make the site myself but I both have no idea how to do that and I honestly don't think I'd be a good administrator.
Again I'm not trying to be insulting toward anyone with this, and I understand real life comes first and all, but not having active people with admin privileges really messes with things.

Alternatively, I think the problem could be completely fixed if we could somehow get Rildok online just to give Toasty full admin privileges, if possible.
I'm assuming she doesn't have them because the character registrations couldn't be posted in the accepted character section.

I think that wouldn't really solve the problem to be honest. Toasty never really obeys the rules Rildok set in place (For much of anything) and tends to just go by her own book (That I don't entirely know), often favoring aesthetics to reason and the like (for some examples, look to my characters "Bob Batshit" and "Angel Wraith") and generally isn't around probably more than 90% of the time. A big fix would be her just visiting more often, but that also doesn't cure any of the underlying problems she has as a admin/moderator, only the problems presented by her just not being here (Which admittedly is the vast majority of them, but still, there's a fair amount left).

And towards the idea of moving to another (Pre-Established) site, there are a variety of problems. First off (Potentially only in my case) I've not really found many/any metroid roleplaying sites (Like this one) on the internet in the first place (Though I will freely admit that I refrain from surfing the web with sites I don't know for the most part). Secondly, I believe it likely that there would be problems with the transfer of even just our most prominent characters on this site even if there were another still active metroid roleplaying forum that we could transfer to, the vast majority of the stuff we can do with the characters we have is because our primaries have definite established backstories through RP on this site, lending credibility to potential out-of-RP accomplishments like those present in the time between the modern and Legacy eras; on a new site we wouldn't have that, and transferring what we have here to there would likely be next to impossible.

That's why I prefer the idea of making a new site rather than going to a pre-established one. I can't actually think of any other Metroid RP site, and the transfer would be easier(Though I'd like the idea of just rebooting everything for the new players, it makes things way less complicated).
Though moving to a different site would have its problems, it'd be better than being on a site with no administrators at all.
And honestly I'd be content with Toasty being admin. I know she doesn't really obey every Rildok had set in place, and doesn't get on very often, but it's better than having no administrator at all. Not having registered characters in the approved characters section since like 2013 makes this site look more dead than it is, and we'd be able to vote to add things to the site more easily(Like a Planet registration).

Well, with that last thing, doesn't really change anything if she had site ability. She would need to know how to code everything and set up the layout to be able to add new sections or polish up old ones (Like the unfinished successor to the arena for example), and while I don't know her well enough (or well at all) to be able to say for a fact, I imagine that she hasn't really studied the stuff she would need to to do that very much. Obviously, I can only base this on the few interactions I have had with her, and my own interactions with people outside of this RP circle, so it's barely even conjecture, but still. Best I got. Also, if I sound stupid or like an ass, I just woke up like...ten minutes ago tops, so, yeah. Not really all here just yet.

I think it'd be as simple as just using an "add new forum section". These forum sites aren't actually that complicated.
Even just adding new characters would be good enough to make the forum seem more alive.

And I'm just looking at it from a newcomer's standpoint. People see the character list not being updated in years and think "this site doesn't even have an active admin approving characters, why should I RP here?"

Plus I kinda regret writing Talon Aran as a character, if I could retcon anything from existence it'd be him and restarting on a new site could do that.
I've just personally grown to dislike playing the whole "This is my OC he's the long lost brother of the protagonist but a bad guy trained by the bad guys for some reason, also the good guys did bad guy things to him because science and now he has SUPER POWERS" character, and in hindsight his whole backstory is just dumb as hell to me.
The problem with that though is that actually interesting characters like Elaya would be dropped by extension. I've grown to just prefer to write characters where I could use them in any setting with some modifications.

I mean no disrespect at all to anyone else's characters or stories, just I think a fresh start would be nice and I've honestly been thinking of these things for a while.

I'm honestly really tired and my points are probably coming out either stupid or dickish.

I know how to make forum sites like this. There are just 2 problems

1. I won't have a proper computer that will let me do it until fall.

2.Me making it would make me the main admin.

(What I mean by proper computer is to add the Metroid stuff like here. Right now I can make a generic forum)

It doesn't have to be an immediate thing, just something to do down the line. If Rildok and Ryo came back(I kinda doubt it honestly, it's been years), we could probably make them admins again too.
Do these kinda sites have limits on how many admins you can have or something?


Edit: I just think it's something that'll have to happen sooner or later, we can't just have an RP site without administrators.

There is no limit but the main admin has final say over stuff, and that's the main problem with me making a new site, a don't know how you guys would fell about me having all that power.

As long as you're not prone to impulse-banning and at least read over RP characters to make sure they're not stupid(in terms of power or in terms of just being stupid) it should be fine.

We still need other opinions, but we should all start discussing what we'd move over and what we would leave behind.

I know I'm moving over pretty much every plot point of mine except Talon Aran(I consider Sanctis to be the rebooted version of him), just gotta figure out how Elaya Aran will exist in that case because I actually like her.
I'd say also move over the basic rules and character templates(so transferring characters is easier), I'm thinking the basis should pretty much just be Metroid Universe 2.0 until we figure more things out.

I also feel like Metroid Universe 2.0(working title) should be an alternate universe from this one. Basically starting with a clean slate(aside from backstory and things like the Sons of Tawfret and Tawfret in general). If people come back to this site, they can transfer characters over to the new site and their stories will be re-canonized.

Um, inter/trans-dimensional travel. Chris/Arisa Gen-te is famous for it, they weren't originally part of the metroid universe in the first place, Elaya would easily be able to travel to reach the new world, they just wouldn't have a father there. Espera does it pretty frequently too, so I could still use the same versions even.

Since we're sticking to this site, I'm dropping the reboot plans. Though I'm retiring Talon Aran as a character. He's still canon (well our canon), but in his place I'll play Elaya Aran(for Blood Dragon shenanigans), Talon Hawke, or Talon Erashous.
I feel like all the stories I wanted to involve him in are finished.

That's sad. Also, we had fights and RPs with him in them we never finished, can you hold off retiring him until they're done?
Oh, and you'll probably still need him as a character, just NPC style, where he's more mentioned than shown, since he still exists in the universe, and functions as a high ranking "official" in the Blood Dragons.

Probably RPs(I didn't realize any involving him were still going on to be completely honest) and that AU fight where he fought Samus.

We also had the fight in Legacy Era between him and future Espera. We never finished that one. and look up, I edited my last post here.

He does at least until he dies in the Legacy Era, though that's also a very good reason to drop him as an active player character in the in between time. He can't just be wandering off doing missions, he has a faction to run.

Yeah, that works. Still, gotta finish the RPs he's still in that weren't finished and the two or three arena battles.
