You have been marked as inactive for failing to post on any RPs for a whole month or more. To change this status, message an administrator or bureaucratic member of the staff department, stating that you will no longer be inactive.
I know you've probably got a lot on your plate running the wikia and any outside commitments, but I was wondering if you knew when Book 1 would be continuing (it seems no one's posted on it in quite awhile). If you're not sure it's no big deal, I was just curious.
Sorry dude, but there is no discussion. Leaving was never an option except via death. I can't really stop you of course, but if you do stop posting, you'd be treated the same as everyone else who went inactive in posting and not receive any of the special rewards for participating.
Well, it's never stated anywhere (that I can find, please correct me if I'm wrong) that leaving wasn't an option. If it IS stated somewhere, I can edit my post, as I have no intention of breaking written rules. Although I still think Mae's nature as a character would have her leave, I'm of course responsible for reading and comprehending things I sign up for like anyone else.
As for the special rewards, I was never in this for them, but rather for the RPing experience and character development, so I don't mind if I get nothing for it.
Then feel free to leave I suppose. As I said, no one is supposed to, but I cannot stop you. It completely ruins the entire point of the entire Book 1 experience though, so I'd say regardless of what the char would do, OOC it's a really shitty thing to do. Literally deciding to abandon everyone right before the whole thing comes to fruition is terrible, especially because you've been pretty much carrying the group when it comes to strategy and what not. But as I said, no you're not supposed to leave, whether stated or not. I don't really think it needs to be stated, should be pretty damn obvious as it's a special event rp and not a normal rp. Though, as I said, go if you really want to do so; if you're willing to give up all of the special prizes, that's the only real incentive to go through with it to the end, besides the OOC aspect I mentioned.
If you really think her/my presence is necessary to maintaining the quality of the RP, we can discuss minor changes that would make her less likely to leave. At the end of the day, the main factor was the guy calling her an idiot. She's an educated person that grew up among nobility, so she takes her intellect pretty seriously, and is actually a fairly prideful person. The other aspects, like Tenshi not getting any help from anyone and her not wanting to work for the Syndicate, she could probably have seen past. I usually prefer to avoid meta-gaming, but if it's for the best of everyone, I don't mind.
Well, really the only people that had any investment in helping Tenshi already have. He's no an Employee, so the Syndicate people there have no reason to help him. And I really do think you need to be there, but whether you stay is up to you or not. If you're going to edit your post, do it by tomorrow because I'm going to be posting then. I need to get the RP moving.
Just a thought. Instead of just having her go to her tent and leave instantly, without letting anyone react. You could edit and just have her walk off to the tent, and actually rp accordingly, allowing reactions.
kickbanning should never be your first option when facing a challenging person in Community Central chat. Kickbans should be used only in extreme circumstances; kickbanning is NOT a tool to "handle" someone you find annoying. Everyone is welcome in Community chat.
^ Taken from main wiki I went there to try to find policy since I don't see one on the wiki itself.
Alright you said I was disrupting chat.
Chat is meant to be a civil place for everyone to exist together. We understand that in some cases, arguments and discussions may come up. These are not innately bad. It is quite possible to hold a civil argument and have no problems. However, if a topic is getting out of hand and those involved seem to be getting hostile, the discussion is to be ended by a staff member, regardless of even if they are involved or even the one getting hostile. In fact, it is even more on them to realize they are getting hostile and to end it before it gets worse. This being said, if a topic is said to be over, then continuing on with it or bringing it up again just to stir the matter back up will not be tolerated.
I did not say one single thing to Lissy besides she can kick me if it makes her feel better and informing her of what happened in pm. Thus I was not disrupting chat. I didn't even say a word to her. So how was I causing a disruption?
I meant to find. I searched Chat policies and stuff Jack had to link me this. Sorry for that. I wasn't causing the disruption because I wasn't even talking to her. There are 8 people in chat if you include me. I was talking to Jack thinking he was there.
In terms of creating a special case character, should it be outlined in an OOC section of the character page that a prize was used? I'm wondering in reference to my next character, Aeya, who can bend paint (kind of an extension of mudbending). Should I add somewhere on her page what the power is, and why she has it?
It's not exactly mudbending because it's not manipulating water and dirt. I was thinking it would be a special case character because in the past you've mentioned that powers should be used the way specified and no other way.
Well, the only way such a feat could be achieved would be by bending the water in the paint. Special Cases specifically do not cover bending powers because if we let one person do it, we have to let everyone do it.
Actually, it's not stated anywhere that Special Cases do not cover bending powers. On the Prizes page it mentions that the prize is vague, then lists some examples of what could be considered. As the prize could vary in many ways, it would make sense for it to include bending powers. If you're going to insist that mudbending covers the art of paintbending and the special case prize does not include bending powers, I'd suggest you make some revisions to ensure complete reader comprehension.
Well, the prize also states the decision is left to the staff. It was always my intention to never allow it to cover people creating powers. That's the entire reason we have the class/power structure. To organize and balance powers. People being able to make their own would put that in jeopardy. As for listing it there, I honestly thought it was outright obvious that that sort of thing wouldn't be allowed. No one character can have something so ridiculously special. It's a special case, not a unique case.
