Hey guys, I actually got the perfect idea.

Setting: A bunch of people, each in front of their computers, try to come up with RolePlaying ideas.
Story: ^

Look, of all the topics in the RolePlaying board, this has been the thing creating the most participation.
Let's face it, we love starting things just for the hell of it, be proud of joining projects and stuff. But as soon as the joining part is done, we don't know what to do anymore, and slowly quite rapidly actually the idea falls from its pedestal and ends up in a recycling bin full of other ideas that were great in theory, but not as easy as our laziness would have liked them to be.

People need motivation. So I suggest, if this board does not have, by the end of August, 3 RPs with at least 10 people committed into them overall, we shut down the RP/FanFic board. And this ultimatum will remain, if at the end of a month the condition is not met, RP/FF'ing will be delegated to the Creative Works board.

First off, shutting down the RP board just won't happen. Ever. It's a tradition among us.
We are going to eventually get new members, and try harder closer to X & Y's release, since thats around the best time to advertise.
second, ten members will not happen.

School is starting soon so members won't be as active, along with there only being about 5 rpers to begin with when evionet was created.

Yes, it's become a tradition to have half our boards dead. And we have not had new members with new generations ever since Platinum came out.

They won't as active as not being active? I can't wait to see that.
Also, just looking at the first page of topics and their last posters, I can see at least 9 names of people who are still connecting in here, yours excluded.

Doesn't anyone realize that tradition is what impairs evolution?

actually what impairs evolution is lack of support

You don't have faith in anything. We didn't get new members last generations because we weren't trying to get new members.
The Problem with RPing is you have to make a concept everyone agrees with, which is alot harder than you think.
Then you need to keep them dedicated. One person ruining any aspect of the RP can send the whole thing downhill.
The problem with rping is once you start, you can't back out.

Moving the RP board to some small section of the forum won't do us good.
Taking the RP board and using it as a selling point can do us good.

If every member took 1 hour out of their day to promote the site, we could get many more active members within a month.
or you know, we could go with your plan, remove the board, and move on to something else.

Lack of support? I call that lack of true interest. People keep agreeing with any concept that appears in here, and when the actual RP is made, barely anyone joins.
I see why you believe I do not have faith in anything. But there's a difference between being pessimistic and realist. Talking here serves nothing. I'll meet you on top of the roof at Site Discussion.
