Are you a Poke Warrior?

  1. So something that came up in our discord forever ago (Thanks @Deep Sea) was a suggestion about an Artist directory. Similar to like our Writing and Links Directory something to showcase your work and to show whether or not you are taking commissions free or paid. With the new year coming we have begun work on such a directory and are looking for feedback on what you think should be involved in this. Now to begin we don't intend for this to be purely graphics related, we intend to allow for multiple different things to be utilized in this directory including our gallery, our themes directory, our mods directory, and our codex. The point of the directory would be a centralized place to show your work for a user. Specifically this would be for those offering their services to those that are looking to have their needs filled. Whether their services are free or paid for would be up to the artist in question, as well as their fees. What we're looking for here is things you would like included in such a directory both from the browsing perspective and from the artist perspective. Feel free to throw our your suggestions and we'll take them into consideration as we move forward and develop this new feature.
  2. As it stands requests forums aren't really discussions forums and they overall feel out of place as a forum. They also aren't well connected to their respective directory listings and as such we are making changes. In addition to our artist directory we are working on making all of our requests forums into databases and linking them to their respective directory listing. What does that mean? If you're looking for affiliates a link to your listing will show in your RPG directory listing and your affiliates listing will pull all of the relevant data from your main listing. It means, overall, less to fill out and on your listing you will see a cool banner for those browsing the directory that you are also looking for affiliates. This is the same for canon lists AND we are going to integrate individual wanted ads into your directory listing too! This is to show off that your members want people too! It gives an overall more integrated feel of your site and your members. Additionally, we are merging find an RPG with our Writing Partners search. NO you will not have to add in all of the information that a writing partner does at this point and we're working on making it simple for those simply searching for an RP but we think it's good to make all personal searches in the same place with the same types of wants/don't wants. Our point is to consolidate and to make it easier for your requests to be found throughout our entire site where it's relevant instead of a static forum where you have to bump constantly. Some key features to look forward to: Canon lists, Staff searches and affiliate searches will only be archived upon request or the main directory listing being archived (unless not associated with a roleplay listing). This means LESS BUMPING IS REQUIRED! We're going to allow linking to "suggested playbys" in both wanted and canon listings. Giving members a reference to playbys that could be used. Filtering and sorting based on character types in the wanted lists. Better display on whether Static or scrolling affiliates are wanted/allowed for affiliates requests. All listings linked to a directory listing will be shown in the listing itself or be linked in the listing. This means that canon lists will be easily available from the main listing page. We do plan to still include recent updates of these items on our main page so it's still easy to access, however, it will no longer be a boring forum thread! As always we are always happy for suggestions and recommendations.
  3. Recently a member posted a topic thanking the initiative for being accepting and the members for listening and for the ability to disagree with staff members without feeling persecuted (THOSE OF YOU THAT SHOULD FEEL PERSECUTED ARE PERSECUTED! YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE! /Morrevileyes). (Actually I honestly don't know of anyone that should be mentioned in my last sentence so you are all persecuted. BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!). Lolz, not sorry. Okay! Onto real serious stuffs! Thank you for being our members! Honestly? This community doesn't work that way without you making it that way. We provide the venue but really you all are the ones that make it happen that way. If it weren't for you and your acceptance of the differences of one another than we at the initiative would just be battling you guys for control of how you treated each other always reprimanding and trying to get you guys to fall in line with our tyrannical RP regime. Having you all as members, not having to fight to keep the order is such a pleasure. We know it's not always perfect. Hell, we're not perfect, but we love you all! We will fight to keep our calm accepting site exactly as it is. Thank you for helping us make this site as awesome as it is.
  4. Alright, I've discussed this many times with staff members and I'll be honest.... we are not sure what to do. We want a theme! We don't want to do fandoms or nerd items as not everyone will get them or they will feel like their fandom isn't as important because it's not as high on the "reputation" scale. My favorite idea, the one I keep going back to, is lemmings. Not the animal but the video game: https://www.google.com/search?q=lemmings&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8#q=lemmings+game I would go with the most recent 3D version. My reasoning for it is because I think that all Lemmings are created equal, just like roleplayers. I know in a way a real lemming is considered followers and that's not the impression I want to put forth and that's the only reason why reputation remains themeless. Do you have a recommendation? Would you be okay with Lemmings knowing the context? Do you think new members would be offended without knowing the context.
  5. With our upgrade today we now have the option for two-factor authentication. I'm bringing it up here as I was looking to know if anyone is interested in me enabling this feature. It would only be necessary for login I believe and changing account settings (email and the like). There are two types of two-factor authentication. 1 is Google Authenticator and the other is security questions and answers. If you have any further things to discuss please feel free to reply. However if you vote in the poll that is enough.
  6. So with our Cards Against Humanity game we would like to create a custom deck for The Initiative. That being said, jokes you've seen around, threads that you think would be amusing to have as the fill in the blank cards. Give us your suggestions. Things like: Q: You get the ban hammer when _____. A: You Create an overpowered character that I already said NO to! Etc. You can create as many question or answer cards as you want please just label them as Q: for questions and A: for Answers!
  7. So I know I love the colors of the Initiative. I'm curious if it's too colorful. We are color coordinated based on the items you are viewing. Is it okay or do we make it too difficult to concentrate. Our gear won't change however our outlook on a potential future skin may. Give your opinions on the color coordination/colorfulness only please.
  8. So I want to put this out there to all of you and see what you think we should do with the cool new feature called "Clubs". Clubs information is here: https://invisionpower.com/news/new-clubs-r1017/ Now what I was thinking we could do is one of two ways. We can make clubs into a sort of "Learning Center" and/or a "Mini-RPG" place and/or for "Roleplays". We can do all three, none or more, we're open to suggestions. The Learning Center I feel would be a great place for people to learn new skills or hone their existing skills. This would be where people that know coding well would be able to manage them and help people with questions etc. If you have scripts or skins it could also be a single place for people to directly ask you questions about it. For those of you that have been around RPG Initiative since the Distant Fantasies days you will know what a Mini-RPG is. Basically it was a forum that you could run an RP that didn't need a full site. This was really for people that wanted to have a roleplay with a few people without the hassle of starting up an entire site for it. This would be true for clubs made of it. This would be a place you can have a small RP and yet get the structure of a forum. For Roleplays this could be a good way to show the who is who of your forum here on the site, assist people interested in your roleplay and show off works from your roleplay (future plans for this include gallery and similar integrations). As we said these are just some of the ideas we have. Do you like them? Would you like to add to them? Have another idea? Let us know!
  9. So with the move forward into 4.2 the reactions system will actually be core (and that means that it will actually work with the leadership boards). What this means is that our current reactions will go away! The actual reactions will be ported over to the new system however current reactions to posts will be reset (sorry guys). I will look into possibly transferring them over but being that our current system is a mod it is doubtful that it will work. On the bright side you can react again! This also means that there will not be a "Yay Post" button anymore as it will be replaced with the Reactions bar completely (something we were wanting anyways). Feel free to continue to suggest more reactions to posts! We love to see how you feel about a post.
  10. So, with the recent Internet issues that most people heard of at the Dyn DNS sites I just want to throw out there that it's completely possible that DNS hosts that don't clear their cache can be affected. Including where our Domain is hosted. This means that it's completely possible that RPG Initiative COULD go down. If it does please know that it is not the intent of RPG Initiative to go down. We will make every effort to not go down due to the fall out of this event but know that after the event fall out we will still be here.
  11. So, with the new directory we are also working on a new directory form! That means it's feedback time. We know our form is a bit monstrous compared to any other directory submission but we have it to provide you with probably the prettiest, most robust, directory out there and we're always aiming to do better. As such we want to make the form for you more intuitive, unfortunately that doesn't mean getting rid of half of it. What we mean is we want to find ways to make it overall simpler to use and find the information you need. As it stands we are considering: Adding a header section to the three parts of the form to define what section you are looking at and make a few definitive borders between the sections. Splitting the three sections into tabs (which is Morrigan's favorite option as it will be easier to tell what you're looking at and have less on the page and YES it will be mobile friendly). Our biggest concern with this is "Out of sight, out of mind" mentalities and will leave users confused when something isn't right there on the front page. However, we think you all are smarter than that. The sections we are talking about are Basics (Site name, site link, genre, fandom, rating etc), Images (Cover Photo, RP Photo and buttons), and Information, (Information/Advertisement section, site updates, links). Another issue we come up with here is which order would be preferred. Logically if you're adding a brand new Link it would be Basics, Images, Information. However, if you are editing your listing most likely the first thing you want to see first is Information as the other stuff won't change as much. When considering the tabbed option, know, that it is highly likely (aka it is totally doable) to have them in Basics, Images, Information order and when editing to default to the "Information" tab without moving it and we would be glad to do that if it would make it easier and that's what we hear you want. Additionally we already are in the works to slim it down a little by changing some fields that are stacked (like the RPG Rating system selectors) and placing them side by side. We also plan to do this for the link fields as well to make the overall directory form less scrolly. We are also moving Tags and "notify me of replies" to the bottom of the form to be in a more convenient place. Other things we are considering to make things more clear: Background colors on titles to define them more. Removing the "Add my Fandom" and "Suggest your Genre" fields once you submit it for the first time so that only staff can see it at that point. Change the background of the elements so that it's more clearly defined what "description" goes to what element/header. We, as always, want your feedback and ideas for this. We will see what we can do to make the directory a happier place to visit.
  12. So we cater to many social media platforms but with Facebooks ridiculous upgrade in "policies" it's becoming more work to be a facebook user/promoter than it seems worth it. I know that there is a large quantity of people that don't even like letting others know that they are roleplayers on personal media like facebook. So we are looking to know if it's worth our time to continue to promote our content on facebook, let alone have a facebook login. We love you, we love your opinion. Thanks!
  13. Just curious! Tell us if you're salty!
