Reorganizing RP Boards
« on: January 05, 2016, 02:21:53 PM »
I think the RP boards may be overdue for reorganization. As things stand, they are organized as follows:

> Modern Era Fiction
> Pre-Modern Era Fiction
> Miscellaneous Writing
> > Science Fiction/Future Tech
> > Embassy Exchange
> > > Diplomatic Correspondence
> Guides
> Planning Room
> > NSRP Threadspotting

My initial thoughts looking at this are:
  • NSRP threadspotting amuses me, but it doesn't need its own entire subforum.
  • Miscellaneous Writing is unused and could be dropped
  • Would guides be better as a thread within the Planning Room instead of a redirect board?
  • A  board dedicated to national information and factbooks could be useful.
  • Since we have a custom of dating threads, is it necessary to have separate Modern Era Fiction and Pre-Modern Era Fiction boards?
  • Would a board dedicated to international relations be at all useful?

Maybe...

>Taijitu Fiction
(click to show/hide)
>Alternative Fiction
(click to show/hide)
>Planning Room, Guides, and Cartography

I'll see about organizing the planning room too, consolidating some of the map threads, removing old stickies, etc.

I don't want to get rid of alternative fiction because while it hasn't been used yet, new people have always seemed to express wanting some other RP thing to do. I also was planning on making something in the future.

you don't need that many childboards with very few topics, no need to have a "science fiction/future tech" board just add it to the "misc writing" board, although a better name is needed, if we called one Worldbuilding, maybe we can call the other, Fictionrama, or Bara Hall (in memory of fallen RP writers), maybe like Twilight Zone...Fiction Zone?

Keeping a distinction between Taijitu RP and alternative fiction.

I don't mind Alternative Fiction existing.

Making one Taijitu Fiction area that contains Modern, Pre-Modern, and perhaps some other areas would make a great deal of sense.

Very simple. I like it.

How about we have a section just for Micro-RPs?

I like this. My one suggestion would be to place the Planning Room subforum under the Taijitu Fiction header.

I like the idea that a Micro-RP could pop up in any section.

I don't think sci-fi and miscellaneous/alternative have to be separate sections.

Perhaps writing set in the future and pre-modern era could be combined?
