Uh, why did this move to Games Corner?

(If you fix this, can you delete this topic?)

Admin was bored and felt like rearranging some of the forums.

Any suggestions on where to put this one, then?

Back in the shadowy writing corner where it belongs!

This DOES NOT belong in games...
(Though I have thought of starting a poetry game...)

I got bored and moved them up into the more art-related discussion areas. Felt a little more organized that way, but it still leaves this as an oddity.

Maybe...CREATE a new writing corner?

Put this (Poetry Corner) in there...

Add 'Short Stories' - stories you wrote for school or got bored (we should include a violence icon or something - high schoolers are weird)

Add 'Continue the story' (though this might fit better in the games corner) - Someone starts a story, then another person adds on. This continues until the story ends.

I don't really know...I'm tired, sore, and tired. Bleh!

No. Maybe a thread for drabbles (100-200 words), but not a whole forum. We don't want people copy-pasting entire stories in the forums, that's what story submissions on the mainsite are for.

Isn't that essentially the same thing as an RP?

No, it's not.
Being that in an RP, everyone controls a different character, in "continue the story" all the players use ONE character (or three, depending on your style). Normally, control is passed on after one to five paragraphs.
This also makes it so the plot is developed along the way, so the controllers often don't end up with the plot they were trying for.

I still don't see what makes it any different from an RP....

I agree with Strata on this one, and on yahoo we would call that 'character swapping/sharing' in rp terms. For instance after one are two posts I would be kabuto and she would be Hao Asakura and then we would switch the character roles, as in she would be Kabuto and I would be Hao. Im sorry to say this but that just screams rp in your explanation and our rp spot is just fine along with the story spot on the mainsite. n-n

However the poetry corner should be moved to the writing area, other than that no biggy. xP tis not like we need to completly overhaul the website lols
