I had wanted my request page to be more simplistic to try to gain interest, whereas my on//off page would be more for those who already had taken interest? Of course that might not exactly be the order people look at things in... but it is the train of thought I had personally? Which is why I had wanted to put photos on my on//off page to show more details?
I don't think I have multiple on//off pages..? At least I hope I don't. Are request pages and on//off pages the same..? I think I am just getting myself into a bigger heap of confusion really... Forgive me if I sound like I am running in circles!
No, they aren't the same. Requests are generally the area for players seeking other players with listed ideas; and of course ons and offs are basic what you like and don't like as far as content goes. The preferences page works similar for quicker tab selections, although in that page I do not believe you can post images(unless they were E wiki linked?) As for the forum one, you can still easily embed images upon it from other sources; or more notably safer ones as formally mentioned.
Of course orders vary with players. Mine is rather complicated as personally I check a user's preferences first for quicker skim of likes and dislikes, then gauge their writing capabilities by skimming posts, then look at their O/O page if they have one for more in depth knowledge and finally gander at their request page, again, if they have one.
Some users may take a simpler approach of looking at ones request then O/Os or vice versa.
Regardless, I do not believe request thread is an O/O in itself. I imagine brief listing of what you want/looking for in kink is fine; but still it is best to have short bios of game ideas or whatever to compensate for that. I don't see why it wouldn't be any issue for more in depth information corresponding to your O/O page if you may have images there you don't want public to see(as I can't recall if solo request thread was open to public eyes, I know group was, but too lazy to log off and check. )
Then again, admin may say differ. I tend to use my O/O page as both a character dump area and listing of said O/Os and request thread for game ideas.
