I need help on some thread stuff...
« on: June 12, 2009, 11:31:20 PM »
I don't know exactly how to ask this or word it, or whatever. But I'm going to try my best and hopefully you all can bear with me.


I want to do something like Professor Loki Caprion has done with his
Lab. I want to make several new threads for my all/multipurpose character Zyr - the one I use to roleplay around the site outside of stories - for PM/IM roleplays that I have going with my respective writing partners, and have a place where they are all listed.
 
But I don't know how to go about any of this, as far as where I would place these things so that they are in the appropriate areas and how to fix it up.
 
So if anyone has any suggestions for me, or can help, please do. ><
It would be very much appreciated.

Some people are currently using their Apologies & Absences, others are using their ons and offs, others are using their request threads, the best way is probably to use your wiki page.

Not entirely sure exactly what you want though >_>

If you wanted to create your own area in which you could have all of your role plays, you'd have to create string-threads in one of the 'Small Groups' sections.
Edit: Should note - the small groups section of the most intense you intend to RP. A lot of people pick EX just in case, but usually NC or Bondage Small Groups will do.

So basically you would have your main thread, a description/list or whatever you like, contact info, etc. And then stemming from that all of your others, if you wanted something like The Lab.

Well, Veks... I have all of my current, and dead, stories listed under my O/O thread.

But I'm talking about making a place specifically designed for roleplays between Zyr and one of my writing partners, for the story I've created over IM/PM with them. Like I said, my idea is like Loki's, how he created the Lab for those stories he has.

And I don't have a Wiki page... Honestly, I'm too lazy to make one as it is.

But thanks, Veks.

So...pretty much...just create a thread in EX, Small Groups and list the various threads there?

Hm. Okies.

Thanks, Saff.

Yep, pretty much. I believe you have to have over 1000 posts in a thread before you can get your own sub-forum in Big Games. :-\

I believe it's either in one game, or in the combined games that would go into the sub-forum. Veks?

1000 posts in the game, although we don't count OOC chatter.

Then again, if it consists of only a single thread in which to keep the info, shouldn't it go under Solos? And do you really need a big games board for a single thread?

Then again, I might be misunderstanding this.

She's asking if she can have her own private board for a series of games that involve her character and others that are not-quite-roleplays.

Generally, the easiest way is simply to keep track in your Ons and Offs, or in your Apologies and Absences, or in your wiki. And just so you know, your wiki doesn't actually have to be pretty. It's for your own personal use, so as long as it's doing the function you need it to, that's fine. Unless you advertise it, you're probably going to be the only person using it anyway.

Hm. Okies.

Thanks, Caeli.

But, again, my idea is to have something like Loki Caprion's Lab. I'm not looking for an entired board for myself. I was just curious as to how I would go about setting up a thread like what Loki has.

Okay... Now that I've decided to try and make a Wiki page... I'm stuck because I don't know what to do. =.=
Can someone help me?

Well, first when you open a wiki, you should see some links in upper right corner. You should see your name there, that takes you to your own wiki page. There on your user page you should see a link called edit. That brings up editing window where you have little set of tools to edit the page. The tags are a bit different than in forum, for example link to some forum thread you make like this (this is from my wiki page).

'''My Intro Thread to E:'''

[http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=17358.0 Introduction]

That shows "My intro thread to E" text and hyperlink to my intro thread that has text Introduction. Basically, you could make heading for your char and link all threads with games with her to that. Hopefully this snipped helps a bit.

There's also the Template to help you get started. ^^ It's easy once you get the hang of it.
