So I know I haven't been here in a while...sorry bout that. Real life got a lil hectic. Anywho, so I'm on another site and they started up two interesting ideas. One I've seen before, the other...something new entirely.
So the first is simply an ICC chatbox. Create a chatbox on a sepperate link and add it to either Starting Up or the OOC tab. It's pretty much a place to go and rp out random scenes with your charries, and has no influence on the board. Just a silly place where magic things can happen, charry's can be maimed, injured, or even die and it doesn't affect the actual board. It can also be used to play out ideas and see how they work early on before doing it on the board. It's actually quite fun..especially with a big group of people...can be very random and enetertaining...lol!
The second idea is giving your charries an AIM account...or YIM or w/e. Anywho, you actually create an account under their name and post the s/n on a master list on the board. Then you can rp out things that actually do affect the board. Like say Nyx and The First meet. They want to talk about a few things. Instead of having an actual thread where you only want to say one or two things but gotta post a huge reply, you do the AIM thing. Then each person can say what they want and a few actions and the other can reply better based on what the person said/did.
I've done the second before, on other boards with fighting....so responses are more realistic and less chance for g-modding or PPing. Never thought of using it for other things til now but it's actually pretty cool and useful.
So ya, anyhow, just a couple ideas I had
