It’s time once again for one of our when-I-remember-to-do-this membership surveys! We would appreciate it if you members could fill this out and tell us how we’re doing.

Please keep in mind that “War Bound” is an independent game, so when we say “the staff” we’re referring to the Enforcers (Mayhem, silverblades2), Moderators (Dinotor, Shadowcat9279) and of course, myself (Big Kahuna), unless the question directly relates to War Bound.

And no, Dino, you can't fill it out yourself.

(For new members) How did you find out about the Core?

What are some of your reasons for sticking with this site?

How would you rate the performance of the staff?

How would you rate our helpfulness?

We’re more than just a writing site, we’re more of a community. Do you agree or disagree? To what extent?

Do you have any problems with the setup of the site? What would you do to improve upon it?

What would you like to see more of on the site?

We would like to see more use of the OOC forums. Do you have any suggestions for how we could make it more enticing for members to post in? Would you be willing to start more threads for discussion?

Do you participate in the Monthly Writing Comp? If not, why not?

You totally should, you know. Do you at least read the entries and vote for your favorite?

How would you describe the gameplay within Fierce Fortitude?

First!

(For new members) How did you find out about the Core?
Though i'm technically not a newbie anymore, stalking on DA.

What are some of your reasons for sticking with this site?
Where else would I go? From what I hear, a lot of other RP sites kinda suck.

How would you rate the performance of the staff?
I get along with most everyone, so i'd say good.

How would you rate our helpfulness?
Very helpful.

We’re more than just a writing site, we’re more of a community. Do you agree or disagree? To what extent?
Seeing how we meet up in the chatroom a couple times a week, i'd say community sounds right.

Do you have any problems with the setup of the site? What would you do to improve upon it?
I have no problems with how it is now. It's easy to navigate around.

What would you like to see more of on the site?
Nothing I can think of at the moment.

We would like to see more use of the OOC forums. Do you have any suggestions for how we could make it more enticing for members to post in? Would you be willing to start more threads for discussion?
The weekly riffing is a good start. I've been more or less reporting on other Transformers-related stuff like FoC and the Hall fo Fame, and will likely continue to do so.

Do you participate in the Monthly Writing Comp? If not, why not?
I don't mostly because i'm not a good writer, and because i'm lazy.

You totally should, you know. Do you at least read the entries and vote for your favorite?
I don't because i'm lazy and usually occupied blowing things up on some game. Usually purging the world of those evil Spies.

How would you describe the gameplay within Fierce Fortitude?
Good. The plot continues to move along and thicken nicely, like some sort of delicious story-favored gravy.

What would you like to see more of in the gameplay?
I'm fine with how it is.

How would you rate the performance of DC8 in running War Bound?
He got it off to a good start, but...

How would you describe the gameplay within War Bound?
...it quickly ground to a halt. The game needs a jumpstart ASAP.

(For new members) How did you find out about the Core?
From Big Kahuna on devArt.

What are some of your reasons for sticking with this site?
I love to write and roleplay, and I love Transformers. I thought that was reason enough.

How would you rate the performance of the staff?
Everyone seems friendly, so I think it's great.

How would you rate our helpfulness?
Very helpful.

We’re more than just a writing site, we’re more of a community. Do you agree or disagree? To what extent?
I agree in the fact that everyone seems to know and get along with each other quite nicely.

Do you have any problems with the setup of the site? What would you do to improve upon it?
None

What would you like to see more of on the site?
Maybe a couple more roleplays... but that's just me.

We would like to see more use of the OOC forums. Do you have any suggestions for how we could make it more enticing for members to post in? Would you be willing to start more threads for discussion?
I don't have any suggestions so far, but I will be willing to post in them.

Do you participate in the Monthly Writing Comp? If not, why not?
I'm participating right now. Should have my first entry done soon.

You totally should, you know. Do you at least read the entries and vote for your favorite?
I'm new to this site so I haven't really done that yet.

How would you describe the gameplay within Fierce Fortitude?
Haven't created a character yet (working on it).

What would you like to see more of in the gameplay?
Haven't created a character yet (working on it).

How would you rate the performance of DC8 in running War Bound?
It's been three or four days since I've submitted my first character... :/ I would really like a yay-or-nay-and-why really soon or at least tell me when he's going to get around to it. Gonna be honest... I'm kind of getting impatient.

How would you describe the gameplay within War Bound?
Again, character has yet to be accepted.

Hmm not sure if I count as a newcomer but I'll give it a go.

(For new members) How did you find out about the Core?
I was invited by JazZeke (Champion!).

What are some of your reasons for sticking with this site?
Lots of creative people in it. Awesomeness! biggrin.gif

How would you rate the performance of the staff?
Quick! Like Flash quick biggrin.gif And really helpful.

How would you rate our helpfulness?
Lol! Think I mentioned that above but yeah, really helpful.

We’re more than just a writing site, we’re more of a community. Do you agree or disagree? To what extent?
Community FTW! Its all Transformers baby! Feel the love! X3
We could talk Transformers until Unicron comes home. Oh wait...

Do you have any problems with the setup of the site? What would you do to improve upon it?
Hmm, setup seems fine. I'm not very familiar with this type of site. I'm more used to the LiveJournal style, but I guess that's completely different.

What would you like to see more of on the site?
Don't know. I'd say art but I don't know if it'll work with this site.

We would like to see more use of the OOC forums. Do you have any suggestions for how we could make it more enticing for members to post in? Would you be willing to start more threads for discussion?
Ooh! Got plenty of topics to discuss but always worried some people might give it the "That's not canon!" or "If its not in the (continuity/comic) then its not possible"
Nobody asks the weird, interesting questions about transformation, culture, way of life. Plenty of weirdness to discuss!

Do you participate in the Monthly Writing Comp? If not, why not?
When I can I'm in! Been so busy with work but I love the writing competitions, yeah! Not in it for the winning, just the wackiness! biggrin.gif

You totally should, you know. Do you at least read the entries and vote for your favorite? Again, work has kept me away but when I'm around I do. I don't like voting because all the entries are usually really cool, but a winner must emerge. A grand champion! One whom others will speak of in awe and doff their caps to, one who will be singled out as the top of their game, the ace, the kid, the champ, the... I'll be quiet now, shall I?

How would you describe the gameplay within Fierce Fortitude?
Is that Beast Wars? Sorry, Trukk not Munkky. I like my robots robots smile.gif

What would you like to see more of in the gameplay?
I see me in a chalet in the alps, with a Purlitzer and... Oh, the game. Hmm, sorry, haven't played.

How would you rate the performance of DC8 in running War Bound?
That's another Beast Wars game, isn't it? Again, not into that continuity. Sorry smile.gif
If there was a G1 one or another continuity I'd be so there!
I know people say "G1's been overdone" but maybe setting it in a different G1ish continuity. But nope, not into Beast Wars smile.gif

How would you describe the gameplay within War Bound?
Beast Wars? Sorry smile.gif I wonder if its a dice game like D&D or like FF?

Hope this was helpful smile.gif

(For new members) How did you find out about the Core?
I'm not new tongue.gif

What are some of your reasons for sticking with this site?
I love the Transformers fandom and all of it's craziness.

How would you rate the performance of the staff?
On a scale of 1-10 I'd say a 7 or 8

How would you rate our helpfulness?
A 9 on the same scale.

We’re more than just a writing site, we’re more of a community. Do you agree or disagree? To what extent?
I agree, the forum invites users not just to write or rp but to chat with other users. There is also the deviantart chat for those who'd rather socialize that way.

Do you have any problems with the setup of the site? What would you do to improve upon it?
I've never really had any problems with it.

What would you like to see more of on the site?
I cannot think of anything at this time.

We would like to see more use of the OOC forums. Do you have any suggestions for how we could make it more enticing for members to post in? Would you be willing to start more threads for discussion?
No suggestions at this time but I am willing to start some more threads.

Do you participate in the Monthly Writing Comp? If not, why not?
No I don't, I was never really any good at fan fiction or whatever the Writing Comp would count as.

You totally should, you know. Do you at least read the entries and vote for your favorite?
Sometimes I do if the topic interests me.

How would you describe the gameplay within Fierce Fortitude?
Nicely paced and plenty to do.

What would you like to see more of in the gameplay?
I do not know at this time.

How would you rate the performance of DC8 in running War Bound?
I have not been to that section yet so I can't give a fair rating

How would you describe the gameplay within War Bound?
See above.

[sorry it took me so long...]

(For new members) How did you find out about the Core?
Via the chatroom on dA. Really, by chance.

What are some of your reasons for sticking with this site?
Interest in the way forums work; the new platform on which to create new OC's and attempt to (one day) play a canon character; the bomb that's strapped to my ankle BK told me would explode if I left...

How would you rate the performance of the staff?
On a scale of 1 to 10, about a 8 or 9. I haven't spoken with them much, but the site is maintained well.

How would you rate our helpfulness?
On a scale of 1 to 10, a nice, rounded 10. Being a newbie to Forums, ya'll have been most helpful. Thanks.

We’re more than just a writing site, we’re more of a community. Do you agree or disagree? To what extent?
I do agree, but only from observation. The weekly chatroom events are always interesting to watch, and the jokes traded back and forth here on the Core add to the laid-back attitude of it all. But, I'm newer, so... yes.

Do you have any problems with the setup of the site? What would you do to improve upon it?
Nope. Once I learned the platform, it was smooth-sailing.

What would you like to see more of on the site?
Ponies? *is shot*

We would like to see more use of the OOC forums. Do you have any suggestions for how we could make it more enticing for members to post in? Would you be willing to start more threads for discussion?
We have OOC forums? Oops. Let me get back to you on that.

Do you participate in the Monthly Writing Comp? If not, why not?
No, I haven't yet due to the fact that I've been using my free time drawing for me. One day, I will. One day... oh yes.

You totally should, you know. Do you at least read the entries and vote for your favorite?
I know, I know. I'm working on it. However, I have read a couple, though I didn't vote.

How would you describe the gameplay within Fierce Fortitude?
Uh, different? I'm basing this off of operating in the dA chat rooms and IM style role-play. So, naturally, I'm finding it slower than I'm used to, but the time to think up meaningful responses, and the fact that I can respond on my schedule is nice.

What would you like to see more of in the gameplay?
No opinion.

How would you rate the performance of DC8 in running War Bound?
He is a stellar moderator; knows what he wants and was very willing to give out suggestions on how to create characters better suited to his game. However, here recently, it has been a bit... dead. Though, I understand that we all have "offline lives".

How would you describe the gameplay within War Bound?
It started off nice and solid, but has come to a stand still. I'm not sure how to proceed since I am still interested in participating. I can wait.

(For new members) How did you find out about the Core?
Stumbled upon it via DeviantArt, and I am ever so glad I did. Yay for happy accidents!

What are some of your reasons for sticking with this site?
Good people, good games, why in the world would I go elsewhere?

How would you rate the performance of the staff?
Not sure, probably a 10 out of 10.

How would you rate our helpfulness?
Again I think a 10.

We’re more than just a writing site, we’re more of a community. Do you agree or disagree? To what extent?
Sure, I haven't been able to take part as much as I'd prefer but I've certainly seen all the fun. The riffs are a great idea and I think they should continue weekly.

Do you have any problems with the setup of the site? What would you do to improve upon it?
No, it's a nice, simple site. I like simple and functional over flashy and difficult to navigate.

What would you like to see more of on the site?
Hmm... Maybe a bit more conversation in the OOC forums?

We would like to see more use of the OOC forums. Do you have any suggestions for how we could make it more enticing for members to post in? Would you be willing to start more threads for discussion?
Heh, wasn't I just talking about this same thing... Well I'd certainly be willing to post more and have been meaning to get up reviews for the couple of movies I'd seen. I enjoy doing reviews and may end up trying to become the unofficial movie review guy.

Do you participate in the Monthly Writing Comp? If not, why not?
Not yet, mostly I'm not sure I can get a clear story across within the word limit. I'm used to writing multi-chapter fics.

You totally should, you know. Do you at least read the entries and vote for your favorite?
Heck yeah!

How would you describe the gameplay within Fierce Fortitude?
Very nice, the pace tends to vary but never too slow to be bearable. I like the focus on characterization over all else.

What would you like to see more of in the gameplay?
Nothing at the moment.

How would you rate the performance of DC8 in running War Bound?
Awesome job, I would say 9. He has a clear idea of what his game is and is very helpful in getting players started.

How would you describe the gameplay within War Bound?
Like the others I would say it started off fantastic but it has slowed to a crawl at the moment, but hey, we all have irl things to deal with. I have faith it will pick up again before long.

What are some of your reasons for sticking with this site? Friendly, smaller, lack of activity checks/min post requirements/other stressors, and lack of politics/cliques like other sites.

How would you rate the performance of the staff? Nothing’s blown up or been set on fire so things must be going alright.

How would you rate our helpfulness? Peanutbutter

We’re more than just a writing site, we’re more of a community. Do you agree or disagree? To what extent? To some degree we are a community. What other sites sit and watch cartoons together?

Do you have any problems with the setup of the site? What would you do to improve upon it? The scrolling News that says it’s the news twice in a row and hasn’t changed in years could go for some updating.

What would you like to see more of on the site? Colony development.

We would like to see more use of the OOC forums. Do you have any suggestions for how we could make it more enticing for members to post in? Would you be willing to start more threads for discussion? I hesitate talking to much ooc since other sites encouraged it and it always backfired on me.

Do you participate in the Monthly Writing Comp? If not, why not? I did but I won’t again. It’s no fun to suck.

You totally should, you know. Do you at least read the entries and vote for your favorite? Yes.

How would you describe the gameplay within Fierce Fortitude? 42

What would you like to see more of in the gameplay? Purple Poodles

How would you rate the performance of DC8 in running War Bound? Rubber Duckie

How would you describe the gameplay within War Bound? Acorns and Blueberries

Short of it's awesomeness; just the general atmosphere and friendliness of the other players.

How would you rate the performance of the staff?
Pretty good.

How would you rate our helpfulness?
Also pretty good

We’re more than just a writing site, we’re more of a community. Do you agree or disagree? To what extent?
Well duh; I find it kinda obvious; after all we do know each other quite well; we are rather free with our comments because most of the time we know what offends and stay well clear of it.

Do you have any problems with the setup of the site? What would you do to improve upon it?
Not really it seems pretty clear to me.

What would you like to see more of on the site?
People from the UK!

We would like to see more use of the OOC forums. Do you have any suggestions for how we could make it more enticing for members to post in? Would you be willing to start more threads for discussion?
I'm not actually sure what they all do; I don't really write fanfiction any more (because I quite frankly suck at it) so I'm not sure what else there is? Perhaps giving people ideas of what actually goes on there?

Do you participate in the Monthly Writing Comp? If not, why not?
I can't write a decent story to save my life?

You totally should, you know. Do you at least read the entries and vote for your favorite?
I'll read occasionally but I don't vote. My life usually trips me over and sends me flying into a dumpster every time I think I've got a few minutes to do much else other than sleep.

How would you describe the gameplay within Fierce Fortitude?
Fun

What would you like to see more of in the gameplay?
I'd like to use my character a bit more in sneakyness and stuff; but meh probably not the right game for subterfuge and her condition does kinda limit me a bit in that. Also more free time to actually post would be awesome...alas my work keeps me busy; how Arbiter manages it I have no flipping clue.

How would you rate the performance of DC8 in running War Bound?
Not really gone on long enough for me to comment on that yet. So far so good though.

How would you describe the gameplay within War Bound?
I've made a single post...again not done enough yet.

(For new members) How did you find out about the Core?
Do I count as "new"? Eh. I wanted to participate in the Writing Competition after spotting it on IDW. Apparently, you had to send it in with your Core username, and I wasn't in the Core, so...

What are some of your reasons for sticking with this site?
I enjoy the comps and the role-playing. And there's not much else to do except wallow in self pity, so here I am, here I remain!

How would you rate the performance of the staff?
8/10.

How would you rate our helpfulness?
You're all fairly helpful and quick to make corrections.

We’re more than just a writing site, we’re more of a community. Do you agree or disagree? To what extent?
I think we're a community- I mean, I think of most of you as "friends", at least.

Do you have any problems with the setup of the site? What would you do to improve upon it?
No problems.

What would you like to see more of on the site?
Boo- I mean, ah, more activity, I guess. When it rains, it pours, you know? When this place is active, it's active, but when it's not, well...

We would like to see more use of the OOC forums. Do you have any suggestions for how we could make it more enticing for members to post in? Would you be willing to start more threads for discussion?
I don't really have any idea about that, I think the Comps do a good enough job and get me to post in Get Creative pretty regularly.

Do you participate in the Monthly Writing Comp? If not, why not?
I do!

You totally should, you know. Do you at least read the entries and vote for your favorite?
Yes!

How would you describe the gameplay within Fierce Fortitude?
Slow burn, more character interaction based than other rps I know of, at least.

What would you like to see more of in the gameplay?
Uh... actual combat? We have all of these stats, but we rarely use them... ever. Also, courage is pointless, and I hate it. That's all.

How would you rate the performance of DC8 in running War Bound?
He's doing a good job; however, I wish he was online more often.

How would you describe the gameplay within War Bound?
Good, so far. Nothing's really happened, yet, but again, "slow burn".
