So yeah... I've been looking through the RP forum. I don't know about you guys, but I think it looks too messy and unorganised, not to mention out-dated. I also noticed that it has very little activity, so it may not matter all that much.
However, as an avid forum RP-er (Well, not so much these days, but I like to make a bit of time for it.) I feel that this should be brought to attention, and I do have a few suggestions to make. I would like to think this would draw more activity back to the RP section, but then that all depends on members interest in it, so in that respect I think it would be worth setting up a poll.
1. Archiving out-dated topics: I think it may be worth having a sub-forum for these or, if you would prefer, just to delete them. I know you already have a "Noteworthy Topics" section in The Tavern, so maybe shift them over there? I think this alone would clear up a lot of the mess.
2. Pinned Topics: There are a fair few of these in the section. I think the pinned topics should only be limited to the rules for the forum and any announcements.
3. Active RPs and Sign-up/Discussion Topics: To make things a lot more organised, I think a sub-forum for any RP Sign-Up and Discussion topics would be worth making. That way it keeps them seperate from the main RP topics, which would be made in the main section, thus making things look neater. Also, the Sign-ups/Discussion sub-forum would also provide a place for those who wish to put up their character bios in the forum, in their own topic.
By no means are these demands or anything, because I know the focus of thise forum as a whole isn't RPing.
It's just that if the forum is gonna be there, it may as well be done good, right?
