Looks like posting is functional once again. Yea!
Wonder when it got fixed. Tried posting last month but was getting errors. Wasn't sure if it was the board or my lousy isp.
It is very strange. I though I was monitoring it. Then I explain how RP Ring is broken on a thread started by Bishor a day after he succeeds in posting to RP Ring. I could be just loosing my mind.
why rpring so die. every admin disappear except two wolves. posting rules still dumb. hybrid has no rp world. where to go?
The core is there, but it is silent. There needs to be critical mass, and some forum chatter/exposure. The core on Hybrid is Blood Clan. The core on Demise is Wolf Clan. I see occasionally somebody come on the forums, ask about RP, maybe try to start something. My group alone amounts to about four or five active players, not enough to interact or entertain newcomers every hour of every day. They wither in about a week or two. Then another one comes along a month later.
It's frustrating, but that is the nature of steady state sub-critical systems. We do not have enough mass to keep ones that would be attracted long enough to keep others who would be attracted to RP.
My stop-gap method is, I have an alliance of guilds on Demise, mainly PvM Hunting guilds. Me and my guys interact with them, and generally stay in character, they get exposed to our style of RP and either tolerate it, or it amuses them and they get in on the act and start talking in character. It's casual RP. We are not getting much recruiting out of it, but we are getting some exposure, having some fun and leaving a good impression.
I'm swamped with work in rl so my time has been severely limited. Do try to still get on here and there but it's sparse. Most of my membership has moved on to other games but I still have two guys who log on occasionally. Have to give kudos to Two Wolves, he's been the glue that has held whats left of us together.
Thanks, Rijn. Those kind words mean a lot.
The up-side is, RP is not dead and gone forever. There is potential. These people are around every day. They do not make a lot of noise, but they are around. I am here to support anything RP on any server. If you have an idea for Story, Contest, Event, Alliance, Guild, Battle, put on some Shakespeare, new RP Ring Forums... you name it - you got it. I can come through with gold, crafts, artifacts, vet rewards and in some cases bring players with RP Characters in to help, troops in sizes up to 5 strong, if the need arise!
