Posted by Kim on February 20, 2020, 9:00 amGoing forward, please do not create topics on the RP Discussion forum that are intended to contain the OOC chatter relating to a RP that is ongoing elsewhere.
Starting today, Mods will begin removing "OOC dicussion topics" of this nature. If possible, we will merge them into the IC topic that they relate to. All the chatter that happened here will show as OOC when they are moved, so if you're the type of person who likes to keep your IC and OOC strictly separate, you can still use the tabs to see only one or the other.
The RP Discussion forum was always intended for people to discuss the craft of RP, get feedback on their characters, learn to improve their writing, etc. It was never for OOC chatter by the people in one particular RP, but we turned a blind eye to this practice for many years because so many people were so invested in the idea of being able to keep the two separate.
We ask that instead of creating a topic that only a handful of people will be able to participate in, you instead take advantage of the new IC forum ability to show IC and OOC posts on different tabs within the same topic.
Old "OOC discussion" topics created before this rule went into effect, but that are still active, will be merged into their parent RP topics. Inactive topics will simply be allowed to fall down the board.
