love ur lack of an ic/ooc divide

Rundown: [community profile] rpanons is an anonymous community for role-play related topics. This place serves as a forum for game discussions, canon discussions, RP solicitations (ATP, game ads, open memes), and advice. The occasional off topic comment is inevitable, but please keep heated social and political topics to their respective communities. Posting them here will only get them frozen. Subsequent threads made to bypass a freeze will then be deleted.

Rules:

Do not post pornographic or shocking images.
Do not share private entries, plurks, chat logs, etc.
Do not use this community as your social/political/hatespeech soapbox.
Do not be redundant. One page does not need three or more threads on one topic/theme. Your unfunny, forced memes also fall under this rule.
Do not treat this comm like your personal therapist. Threads about nonfictional suicide, self injury, rape, and abuse will be deleted. There are better resources out there for you.
Do not treat this comm like your personal Plurk or Twitter. Off-topic happens, but it should be open for discussion and not just a play-by-play of your life. No one cares.
Shut up about Tumblr. If it's not a discussion about Tumblr RP it will be deleted.

the atp and rp with me subthreads can totally be merged, imo

(Anonymous) 2017-02-08 11:13 pm (UTC)(link)
ennnnnh. atp is more for game related things and people looking to fill casts. rp with me is singular storylines or fluffy ships or w/e. that'd be like merging kinks you want to play and pairings you want to play. similar, yes, but they both serve a purpose that doesn't always fit with the other.

I'd merge RP with me (which seems more PSLs) with kinks and pairings and have one comment with three subheaders : gen, kinks, pairings.

yeah i'd totally dig that.

That's smart!

why bother changing anything. if it ain't broke, yadda yadda.

sometimes each thread gets passed over, sometimes they don't. having three potentially large or small topics crammed under one subheader is just asking for more clutter. there's thirteen headers on the front page as it is. all you'd be doing by compressing them is leaving room for more top levels on the front page, which is already going to be cluttered by the fact that all the big headers are on it. melding headers isn't going to fix the problem of the front page loading slowly, because it's all on the front page.

i know it's in part because i'm a grumpy fucker who hates change, but there's no actual reason to change it. username suggestions/character advice don't get used often (some posts, not at all), yet no one's suggesting getting rid of those. some posts are bigger than others. some are more active. but anon comms activity have been slowing in general just because of shitposting and aging playerbases. there really isn't any reason to change anything other than because you want to leave your own mark on it instead of just leaving it as is.

which, btw, isn't a negative remark. i'm glad that someone is more active with modding the comm and willing to freeze/delete problem threads instead of just letting the shitlords spam everything all to hell. thank you for that. sincerely. but does anything really need to change?

reorganizing on the main post would be no biggie. the fact you have the newest flatview page link up there now is a godsend. i have no idea why it's ordered the way it is outside of game/canon discussion being first since they're usually the larger threads. the first and last link lines up there all group together nicely, but the middle two are sort of the same but not really, so it's kind of up to you as mod how you want to organize.

i don't usually use the links myself that often, but as long as they're all up there for ease of when people want to, it's all good in the hood, imo. (but mine is just one opinion, so that doesn't mean that much).

i just really dislike the idea of combining any of them, both because 'it works the way it is' and it doesn't actually clean up or help anything. it just leaves more room on the front page for more headers to make it harder to load. that's just how posts work like this, though, and i think by now, we've gotten well used to that, so anyone complaining isn't really going to be mollified by crammed headers since it won't fix anything.

i'm undecided on rp with me vs kinks vs pairing being separate threads and them being under one master thread. either way, they're gonna be on the first page, right? idgaf.

WHAT SPECIAL VOCABULARY WORDS/PHRASES DO YOU USE FOR YOUR PETS?

(Anonymous) 2017-02-09 02:03 am (UTC)(link)
tickle spot - that spot on a dog's belly where they kick their leg if you scratch it.

pizza bone - a neighbor's term for pizza crusts, one of their dog's favorite treats! i use pizza bone and crust interchangeably but i'm sure she dgaf and knows what's coming when we have pizza.

critter(s) - any non-human animals including herself but usually referring to squirrels and other animals trespassing in her yard.

(her) big dog bark - when she uses a deeper bark in order to sound big, tough, and scary, lmao. i mean, uh... bigger, tougher, and scarier than she usually is, yeah!

special terms for tricks are fine too. like we use "speak"/"pleeeeeease"/"do you want it?" interchangeably when we want her to bark.

I rarely ever refer to or call my cats by name. They are just variations of "butt." Little butt, buttface, baby butt, butthead, etc.

"Booboo" is often supplemented for "butt."
