Yes... turns... *evil music*
I know they're perhaps not the most popular concept ever, but some of you will agree that we need something atleast resembling turns!
I'm getting a bit sick of coming home after school and having about 5 pages of new posts to read.
It won't actually be a 'everyone has their own number' sort of turns system, but rather one where one player is the start, and all of the others post *once*, until that player posts again.
Like this:
Nall Posts.
Every player that wants to be involved posts once.
Nall Posts Again.
And the other players post once again...
See?
Every time that Nall posts, each player has a chance to post once after that?
I don't know, it might not be once, really, but something along those lines.
It's just to keep it easier for people that really don't have the time to be on all day, but still want to participate in the rpg, and also for people that don't enjoy plowing through endless posts, while their character is completely lost from the action.
Just reply, and tell me what you think about this alright?
Or if you have any suggestions/comments...
(I haven't got it worked out yet)

i'm not sure yet. i think it could be helpful in the smaller groups, but the larger groups could be hindered if a couple people weren't able to get on, and had no one to cover for them.

Ya, I agree with Azrim-Dal, big groups will have a lot of trouble with this thing...

But it's not that we'd wait for every individual person, really, it would just slow down the posting, I'm not sure exactly how it'll work yet, but we have to have some kind of order, or else people go totally insane and post 50 times

hmm... I really like that idea! especially since you used me in the example hehehe! :D but ya, seriously it sounds good. maybe like everyone is allowed 2 posts or somthing (not at the same time) after I post(or we could even make it either me or Gingitsune since she's kinda like a leaderish type and helps move the story) and ya. you don't HAVE to post, and I don't HAVE to wait for all of you to post. that way there isn't a major huge list of posts and if I'm not on and posting the story porbably isn't moving all that much... (lol I sound like god >_<) anyways ya thats my opinion :D though we'd have to think up the details

on some ends, it sounds like a good idea, but on others, it doesn't seem all that good. i don't know though. i guess i'll cast my vote later, when more people have answered

It is a good idea, and an end to people relentlessly posting, but there are a few kinks in the way it might work out...

That is a great idea. I don't want to come back from 5 hours of work to see that there's x number of pages for me to read >.<;

I am for the basic idea, but it would certainly need some tweaking - rules and exceptions...

I think that the bigger groups might need there own style of turn system, but I am for turns, like in our thread, we take turns, so we don't get confused on what's going on, because it keeps time moving in one direction

One way to do it, is to give each person a certain number of posts per day. That way, you don't need to wait for everyone to post, but you don't end up spamming a few pages worth of discussion between a few characters.

also the post-per-day should be slightly changable, because if there is a lull in the story, only a few would work, but if there is a lot of action, people could be left in the dust.

p.s. this wouldn't limit the ooc topics, would it?

hi all im waitin to be registered so if you dont know who i am its ok no one does (yet).

Anyway as a way to cut down the long conversations that last x number of posts between two or three people is to have use private messaging (AIM etc.) and inform the group about anything that affects the whole party

I just thought i would pitch in my 2 cents. Lookin forward to playing with you all.
