i guess i'm the first to realize theres an OOC thread. Just a general comment... lots of skimpy sign ups, and a lot of people signing up with them...

So? Anybody want to talk about anything EXCEPT gym leader thingys?
January 22nd, 2008, 11:55 AM
I could be a Gym leader, possibly of the Normal or Dark type. Gym Leader #4? And yes, I agree with Evkay, lots of very, VERY skimpy posts and even worse sign ups. "Exactly like Gary but with a hood" WTF?!

jim th rules say four sentences and i was at school and had to go when i typed that post and there is thirty minutes because i as soon as i got out i headed home home
January 22nd, 2008, 12:11 PM
Jim stop ranting about posts and sign-ups.They have all been accepted so just stop ranting please.Oh and does anyone want to chat about anything except gym leaders?
January 22nd, 2008, 12:18 PM
I'm not gonna get into this, but Viper, Jim isn't ranting. Just a heads up, RPs can get closed if everyone's posting a bunch of one liners.
That's my two cents, and now I'm done with the line requirement.
January 22nd, 2008, 12:20 PM
Ok,so anyone wanna talk?!
January 22nd, 2008, 12:30 PM
I will be the third Elite Four member, is it possible I can use mixed Pokemon (specifically Water, Electricity, Dark, and Fire)?
A majority of the sign-up posts could be improved a lot. I guess that is why there's an RP sample tool. Just that it screws over those who aren't usually doing large eight-fifteen paragraph RP posts in some cases.
Anyways, I'm sure something will end up going wrong with Ikazuichi's shiny Eevee.

ya, Jim and Kat have solid points. Sharpay. The *Minimum Post Count* is exactly what it says Minimum if you're going to put forth MINIMUM effort, why even join. The point of an RP is to make things interesting, not splice in reaction shots and not drive a plot forward. I'm going to be brutally honest with all of you. I joined this RP because i saw that the people who got accepted here were rejected from a majority of other RP's. My goal is to show you all WHY you're being rejected and to help you improve.
and that means. Not doing the 4 line minimum because you don't HAVE to do anymore. And yes. that is going to be making full, descriptive paragraphs that paint a picture for the readers and make it enjoyable for everyone else to respond to. This is a good RP with lots of potential and i don't want to see it go downhill because people only see fit to do the *minimum* requirements. Do you settle for the minimum in real life?
No. you strive for the best. Why cut it short on something thats actually suppose to take thought into it. [/end lecture]

It seems a moderator has finally locked his eyes on the thread and scanned it, finding an exeptionally large amount of one-liner posts. The sad thing is, chances are the majority of those commiting them aren't even reading OOC notes or the RP Lounge thread.
Seems that no one actually bothers noticing each other though and just is getting hyped for the examination.
January 22nd, 2008, 06:38 PM
its okay Angelic. Just work the best you can. With this many people i think it will take a while before we get settled into a nice groove of actions.
January 23rd, 2008, 02:20 AM
I hate to be so blatantly critical about the matter but: the kids who're posting one liners, it's most likely that they don't get accepted into a lot of RPs, and probably only joined because the old academy formula is a pretty easy and fun plot to follow. Won't take long for their interest to wane and they'll stop being so dang active ;)
Anyway, hi everyone! You know I read the post about there being an OOC thread a couple of days ago but it took me aeons to find it :P I'm such a spazz
January 23rd, 2008, 02:47 AM
By the way winged whatever do you think are the only one who wants to be a multi gym leader...no offence but thats kind of selfish
January 23rd, 2008, 08:51 AM
gym leaders aren't even something to worry about. to be brutally honest, if you guys don't stop posting all these half arsed 3 line posts, the RP is going to get closed before we even make it out of this stadium
January 23rd, 2008, 10:22 AM
That's the sad truth, Evkay. I see they're putting a bit more effort, but only minimum. Those that normally get rejected from RPs: If you want to join more RPs, put more and more effort until you end up at a level you'll end up in a majority of RPs that you like (look at MY first RP. I barely put ANY detail into my posts, just that a guy done that and that's it. I don't even know how I made it four lines now). I just wonder when the academy pre-entrance examination will start. For me, the RP is already at Page 3.
Out of Topic at a small-small-size: One thing though is that my RP I expected a few more people to join since it was a bit unique. Oh well, it IS the school year currently. Major tests come up either second quarter or fourth quarter for many, so they study all day or something. Besides, not many RPs get people to join the first two days they're on the forums.

hey all my posts have been up to standard
January 23rd, 2008, 10:28 AM
XIGE, that kind of attitude is kind of whats going to be the downfall of this RP. up to standard is fine, don't get me wrong, but writing at above standard is going to be what makes this RP fun and enjoyable for everyone. paint the picture with your writing, leave no detail undone, no stone unturned. Write so that we'll see EXACTLY what you're thinking

I am just curious about something. With the dormitories, are we going to be sharing rooms?
On another note I know my posts are shorter than some of the others and I am working on gradually posting more in one sitting.
January 23rd, 2008, 10:46 AM
i understand but i dont have time on my side
January 23rd, 2008, 06:31 PM
XIGE, if you don't have time... and you still want to RP effectively, i suggest opening a word document and writing pieces at a time and saving them, then editing what you're doing to fit the RP as it gets updated. Theres a lot of ways to get around having a lack of time to post.
please everyone, i don't want this RP to be closed down... if you need RP help, PM me. I'll be pming some of you who look like they need help.... to be brutally honest with you, i contacted Xenocrates and if I can help you all improve your RP skills, then he has agreed to consider the warning gone... so work with me here, i know not ALL of you need it... but lets try and keep the RP alive and organized, shall we?
EDIT: i'm reading through the posts... Xige, lets stick with real attacks and skills, and Turtwig is not half ground until he becomes a Torterra.

Due to the original thread being shut down, the OoC thread will also be closed.
