    Me and my partner have no idea whatsoever how our battle is supposed to work for the RPO.

    This is an informative note stating that the 'Battle' event has been discontinued because of lack of participants.

        So people, I've been thinking about creating a wiki specifically for the RP Corner. I suggested this to Skymin earlier, now I want to know anybody actually thinks this is a good idea. Here's a little rough idea of it which I sent to Skymin-

        why not create a wiki for the RP corner as a replacement to the Library? It's probably not going to get a lot of traffic but hell, it's worth a shot. I mean, it could as a good place to idk, advertise your RP? Or create summaries for curious people? Keep people updated on new things in the RP Corner? "Mad Maddy ramblings" spot on the front page?!
        So what do you guys think?

        Mad Maddy Mamblings sorry I mean Ramblings is what the Announcements here are already :D or her every post in this thread.
        <3

        You mean, like a huge archive where we can search for a specific RP title or character and get to read about them (like their sign ups can be the base for their page) and what they have done so far? And maybe we could read about old RPs too. And genres. Like, having a list of journey RPs, and a list of completed RPs and, and...

        It does actually sound fun :3 don't know how often I'd be there, though. And if I'd bother contributing much xD

        We have one for Atlantis Arising that we have been planning for a couple of months now. Shameless link here. It would require a lot of effort on the RPers part, but a wiki of Present, Future and hopefully Past RPs would be an interesting idea. Like Red, I wouldn't know how often I would visit it or help maintain.

          The Mad Maddy Ramblings was a joke xD Anyways, a huge archive is exactly what I meant. People post their RPs, and they eventually get forgotten, this would help people see what kind of RPs were made or hep them remake certain RPs if they want (not saying that this should encourage people to steal though lol)

          ngl I actually picked it up from that. I got the idea of a RP Corner Wiki last year but didn't think it would work. Seeing the Atlantis Arising wiki though made me think that it could actually work. Again the main problem that I feel is that people will actually not bother to look at it. It could either be that or it would help people really advertise their RPs haha.

            I do like this idea, but... Are we really ever going to use it? I could very well be wrong but wasn't the Library taken down for lack of usage?

              This is a wiki, that was a Library, or an archive. I think part of the reason the Library was taken down was also because Ichiro got real busy. The wiki works differently, it's basically supposed to not put a burden on one single person to constantly update.

              How people should be approaching the wiki is, "oh ok, so my RP is up. I have to make sure it isn't forgotten, so I'll post a summary on the wiki for people to check out later!" and following something similar to other wikis, it'll have a small news update or something like that, where major events are updated for archiving, and to show what new RPs have been posted.

              Anyways, it's free, so it doesn't matter whether it fails or gains popularity. The only way I believe we can see is by posting it and checking out how much activity it generates.

              That was taken care of by a single person, though, and it was because of that lack of usage that the one person had it shut down. In the case of a wiki, it's a collaborative effort, thus the hard work and responsibility is divided among all RPers, and similarly, the desire to manage and update it varies from person to person. So really, if there were a wiki then whether it's used by the masses or not would probably be irrelevant, and it's upkeep would vary depending on whether people feel like updating it or not. For instance, sometimes I update wikis that I'm sure no one will see, but I feel that they need more information so I add to it anyways.

              A wiki seems totally pointless and ridiculously high-energy to me.

              I mean, what you're doing with Atlantis and the characters is pretty pointless when you could just link to the sign up, which will no doubt have better information anyway.

              Even if you insisted people updated their own characters page with progress then things would always get missed/forgotten and the supposedly reliable wiki would then be causing loads of confusion ><.

              So really a simple list done by one person would be so much better. If people then think it's too much hassle it's pretty easy to instil a weekly/biweekly update rather than EVERY time something new springs up.

                You didn't really explain how the 'Battle' category was supposed to be done anyway.

                Not in a good, easy to understand way anyway. That's why that happened.

                IMO though obviously...

                I think a wiki or wiki like thing would be rather cool, especially how RHCP described how one could work. It does seem like a lot I work though, especially to get started so it would take a lot of members not being lazy to really get it to be of any real use. It'd also need someone overlooking it to make sure the information on it is accurate or that could case problems in some rps.

                  It was just meant to be a combined post by two people controlling characters engaging in a ''Battle'' of some description, wether that battle be a Pokemon battle, a Yugioh Duel, a Metal Gear Solid fight, a fight between Sonic and Knuckles, heck a poker game.

                  Just wasn't getting enough interest unfotunately.

                  Shame because it was one of the most appealing to me.

                  I reckon it would have done better if you were allowed to RP the battle on your own.

                  Yes but no. Me and Ichiro have about 7 billion NPCs and its great for back story. It's actually really helpful once it's cleaned up.

                    I support the wiki. Its more amusing to check a wiki page than a lame old mainstream OOC page.
                    Wikis are the new thing! (silliness)

                    ON Topic: The battle thingy could have been better if it was one person narratting or RPing a battle, instead of a co operative thing. Having to work with someone else seemed like too much of a hassle, and thats really the only reason I didn't sign up for it.

                      The Escape category could have been done better if it was an actual RP as well.



                      What?

                      Dude, stop complaining in the discussion thread and go message either Skymin, Supervegeta, Raikiri or TheOriginalRaitan. Honestly, no one cares.


                      On to other things, I believe the wiki could work, if people had a more positive disposition about it, helped out to get it up and running, and visited it frequently, it could work. There is this really cool button on wikia where it takes you to a random page, you could visit a page of an RP you've never seen before!~

                      The thing that has made the Atlantis wiki work even though it hasn't been completed is that our Roleplayers enjoy helping out to create it, and with as many NPC's as Skymin and I have, it will be much easier to check the NPC on the wikia than wait for us to come online and message us. All it takes is a few dedicated people for it to work.

                        Dude,

                        The escape category is fine. It works. And its fun. And yes, it is doable. (excuse me while I consult the dictionary on the realness of the words doable and realness.)

                          Okay dude not meaning to be rude but the fact that you managed to screw up in three events kinds of hurts your credibility. It's probably just poor reading on your behalf, make sure you read properly next time around.

                          Anyways, I think the wiki seems to have generated at least some attention. I'll go ahead and create the wiki, we'll see if it works after that.

                            Well, I'm just gonna' come in here for a short moment and state that I as well support the idea of an RP Wiki. Sure, it'd probably be a lot of work, but to me it sounds like a really fun idea! Something to make the RP Corner that much more interesting...

                                Dude, all you seem to post here are criticisms. The Escape category was perfectly explained, a few of us have given opinions that it would have been better to do solo, but the rules given made perfect sense. Plus if it was an ''Actual RP'' as you put it, that would kill the point of the fact that this is the RPO's, and they aren't being done in typical fashion, it's just a demonstration and competition of good writing.

                                I think my favourite thing is that everyone who has replied to The Mega Champion has started or almost started their sentence with "dude".
