Resurrecting an RPG
« on: October 22, 2017, 01:16:39 PM »
Greetings - I want to resurrect an RPG from 7 years ago. It has a sub-board as it grew that large and I anticipate it will be big again (popular topic and no other of that theme going on). A few questions I have - and I'm happy to chat via message with a purple person if that's the best way...

1. I've marked old threads as [archive] that were specifically for characters or settings that likely won't be in the reboot. Are these counted toward the limitation on the number of threads? As an aside, does anyone follow that rule? Is the rule still a rule? Perhaps the archives don't count?

2. I know there is a no delete rule, but do I just let the old threads be there and eventually they'll disappear as we add pages of threads? My OCD really wants to delete them!!!  ::)

3. I reached out to the co-GMs and one responded, the other didn't. Since I started the game and am resurrecting it, can I request the co-GM that did not respond be removed from GM power?

Umm...I guess that's all I have right now.

Thanks!

Hi there!

If you already have a subforum, then feel free to dust it off and reboot it! You don't need to redo the big group process. :-) feel free to ask an administrator to remove and add co-GMs as you need them, and if you want your old threads archived, I can move them to the small group subforum of that category so they can be buried.

Or they can be left with the Archive tag for future readers to enjoy.

Yes, but HockeyGod says he wants them out of the way. Was offering an alternative.

Well if you mark it archive as a GM you can also lock the thread so that nobody else can post in it. Dunno if that would satisfy your OCD or not. :)

Also unless I am wrong the thread number rule is only for 'small' games for big you can have as many as you like in your subforum?
