So as might become abundantly clear Jcarter is doing me a solid and posting this in the announcement forum. Thank you Jcarter...
I am here to announce the opening of Optional Realities, a text-based RPG community. It will be a community that is similar to this one but for all games. It will be a place where we will hopefully be able to come together as staffers, players, and first time newbies to promote our genre and educate each other. What's all that mean?
1) There will be regular articles written not only by the OptionalRealities team but staff of prominent roleplay games such as Sindome, Evolution of Esos, Shadows of Isildur, HavenRPG, and others.
2) There will be a forum with a moderation policy very similar to this one
3) There will be an active community staff of experienced game designers willing to discuss ideas with players and even new game designers hoping to design their own games.
4) There will be monthly contests with cash prizes ranging from storytelling to game proposals and even best log.
A community is only as relevant as its users and so to that end I invite you all to come and post if you feel like, read if you don't want to post, and if you don't want to do other than at least check out our connections page that links to several roleplay games that might interest you (and have been discussed on this forum at varying lengths).

nile: almost guarantee arm staff are LOVING this. hahaha. long as the game is good fun it's all a bit irrelevant. but the anti-arm crew giving the arm staff some sense of schadenfreude based purely a forum for whining made me lol

nile: Also, been playing Arm again on an alt account (omfg their ban was easy to get around...and tbh i have more fun in apoc)

vex: Bans are irrelevant, and pointlessly antagonistic. The only game I play, where staff address problems with aggression, bans, and down talk, is Arm. The rest have realized, all that results in, is a bitter player, more inclined towards "revenge" play.

vex: Better to incentivize ideal play and behavior, than try and fail to intimidate and leverage empty threats, because nobody is intimidated by an angry elf fetishist on the internet, and there are virtually no threats a player can't circumvent, easily.

baobob: Arm turned to condemnation, punishment and vengeful retribution against players pretty hard long, long ago. Never turned back.
