It is a pretty neat idea, but there are a few things I'm worried about. For one thing, it doesn't really feel as much like a collaborative piece, and it might not be as evident to lurkers or newcomers that it's meant for all of RPT as opposed to highlighting one "super gud" RP or something. Also, given that we counted something like fourteen RP threads, if we included all of them and they rotated weekly, it would take three and a half months to complete just one full cycle.

If it's obsoletion we're worried about, there's the possibility of going back every couple of months and replacing inactive or completed RPs with new ones, though that might get messy.

And there's also the workload problem Ech brought up. While I am more than willing to put in the effort, I'm not sure I'd have the time. I am the slowest person at drawing stuff you've ever met omg

I guess it depends on whether people like the idea of rotating a random RP to highlight every week and keeping it relevant better, or whether people would prefer to see their RP as part of a bigger whole, all the time.
