#7094741 [RP Poll] Gauging the Interests of the RPers

Posted by HMS Prince of Wales on 14 April 2018 - 01:52 AM

That would also mean it would have to be designed almost perfectly to a tee and balanced well enough that it couldn't be broken.


But then again, you do have a point. RP Hosts could find ways to actually create a new TCG in the process and have the applicants learn the game at the same time.

I don't think that's necessary. It's fine to be broken and have the characters/players discover and abuse that as they play along, that's part of the immersion and can really help to set the characters' decks and personalities apart from each other. After a while the story can just ban or do something to mitigate those issues, and let players try to find another thing to abuse. It's not an actual card game so you don't have the same constraints for say, making a banlist.


As for designing individual cards, they'd have to go through a  host or co-host first(in such an RP, a co-host can just be someone who's eager about creating cards and likes the game, not necessarily someone who'd have to participate in the RP a lot). if said custom card game has a cost-system then you can have that be the guideline for how much a card of a certain cost can accomplish.

#7093408 Kazooie as a New Moderator

Posted by HMS Prince of Wales on 08 April 2018 - 03:52 AM

I'm pretty busy among other reason is the why I opted out of getting promoted. I also want to do a good and fair job if I was promoted. In a months I will have more times on my hands but atlas the lack of activity in the CaC section of this forum also makes me not want to be part of group of mods. As a mod you are required to do a "shift" doing x amount of time and if the site is dead (or near dead) aka super lack of people doing stuff on YCM, would be super boring just staring at a screen for hours on end with nothing much to do. Hope the site picks up during the end of spring and/or beginning of the summer.

yeah man all of us in this thread were so eager to have you as our new super mod shame to see you go bro

#7092952 "RP Rewards" Discussion Thread

Posted by HMS Prince of Wales on 05 April 2018 - 11:33 PM

i dont think we need one. i mean i guess a completed RP could give all members like, 5k points per page or something. but points arent a very good incentive in the first place and there isnt really anything else to give, and to be cheesy its about the journey rather than the reward. as far as incentivizing people to, aside from a simple points reward like what i suggested there really isnt a need for a reward.

wtf stop posting so much good content


I'm not sure how much I should say so that it won't ruin your experience. If you don't want any kind of hint at all, don't read on but I'm trying to not give solid hints while still giving you things to think about. Here goes: I guess I can say that Battler's sin is highly pivotal to the events of the island happening at all. That he doesn't know about his sin is absolutely his sin, if he knew about it he could've done something about it. As to what his sin is, you actually have been told about it before in the game. It's not a fresh new reveal of events you've never heard of.


And you have to consider how the mansion building was gone entirely by Ange's time. I don't remember if the cause for that has been mentioned yet but it's a valuable hint. If you haven't been told of the cause, then think of one and think of what would be required to make it happen. How would that play into Kyrie and/or Rudolf? At this point I think it's a given that they've been shown to be willing to commit the murders. Would just willingness be enough to get someone to commit murders though?

@Phantom Roxas

i feel like there's some things that can be dismantled here, either for rebuttal or elaboration. and it feels like you're a little unfairly biased against black in this argument so i'll chip in a bit. (also black ninja'd me while i'm only half done so go figure)

You and her both took active measures to oppose any actions the rest of the mod team took, especially if it didn't meet your own personal approval, and that goes beyond your issues with me. When general concerns were raised about preventing harassment, you both completely rejected those ideas, and you went for the "People should just grow a spine" nonsense, because you would have rather put the onus on someone else to not get upset than actually do anything regarding harassment. You didn't make it a matter of "Constructive criticism is fine." You encouraged flaming, and said that if anyone was upset about those insults, then chances are that they probably deserved it.

you're saying two things for your argument in this paragraph, that kazooie essentially follows black's personal moral standard(the problem here being that kazooie becoming a mod just means black will have more control over the team, according to your accusations), and that he acts off personal opinion against the mod team's actions (the problem in this case being lack of professionalism by having personal bias leak into moderatorial decisions(moderatorial is apparently not a real world good to know)). the first part is elaborated on better in the next paragraph so i'll ignore that and focus on the second one. also your final paragraph restates those points you've made better so thats a thing too i guess but your elaboration of those points are here so i'll ignore it.
the one example you raise to support that second claim is vague. what's the context behind the concerns against harassment in this case? what degree of harassment is being debated at that time? because there is a degree of harassment in which it is reasonably the offended side that should take care to not be offended, rather than the offending side. where that degree lies exactly is up for debate and depends on several things but it exists. it is possible to be reasonable when suggesting that people should grow a spine in regards to harassment, and unless you'll provide the context that answers that, you can't say your example proves black's personal bias in mod decisions(said context has also been provided by black btw, which seems reasonable to me). in fact, the way you phrased it sounds more personally biased. you may not like it but growing a spine is not automatically an invalid rhetoric against harassment. saying that rhetoric is nonsense and grounds for dismissing that argument is your own personal opinion, and is not automatically a position the mod team should hold.

You claim that "If it took swapping me for her, I would take that option", and really, that's all it would be anyway. You and her both agreed on the same things, so replacing you with her would functionally keep the team exactly the same. All I ever saw from Birdie was her supporting you without question, and I want to refer to Winter's reasons for supporting Birdie. He believes that the team needs a steady hand to guide them, and while I believe he is making a good argument in a broader sense, I believe the kind of person he was describing is not who Birdie is.

goes back to the first point made earlier, but you are aware the two are close? that makes the nepotism accusations hold water, but it also means there's a good chance they share the same opinions on a number of things, that they're like minded enough to become close in the first place(again black's also elaborated on this in the post that ninja'd me).  that kazooie supports black 'without question' does not necessarily mean she mindlessly parrots his opinions, they could equally likely be people who both would arrive to the same conclusions. unless you can provide some posts where it's evident kazooie mindlessly supports black then your argument here isn't solid enough either. black's ninja post provided some personal accounts where they disagree on things. maybe that's good enough or maybe its not, but i think the onus is on the side claiming that one's a mouthpiece for the other.

the last paragraph's points have already been answered by everything else i typed so far so i'll skip that. its fine if you're against her becoming a mod but make more solid arguments against her. provide more concrete evidence or instances that support your doubts. argue better.

also whenever you feel like it, maybe a post with detailed thoughts on each of the characters now that you got to this point?

I will say this. If we didn't get Black and Cow and Torms all within a (relatively) short period of time then I would have no problem voting yes. That is what's changed, as far as I can see.


It may be restating the same thing as before but well that's really the only noteworthy addendum I could make to what I said earlier.

It should work if you go to the full editor instead of trying to quickpost. I had the same issue with necrobumping a misc thread for a joke before.

There's no objectively correct response to that. Pick the side that makes you feel less sad about it.

What game is it?

Atelier Totori. I won't deny that it has a lot of pandering to lesbian moe fans but the gameplay is solid numbers and stats, and the writing itself is simple but arguably effective enough. It's a tale of a girl looking for her mom who went missing on an adventure and tries to become an adventurer herself.

the right one is a really good and well-designed(somewhat low budget but the complexity of the item crafting system makes up for it) game though...

Natsuhi's my favorite aunt as well(Rosa comes close later on). She's truly a tragic character and I love her for that.


Maria is well, they never fully confirm it so that matter is vague, but she's handled incredibly well.


Don't stop thinking with Kinzo.


EP1 really is a solid drama and mystery. A lot of people forget it for the hijinks in later episodes but I hold it quite fondly in my heart myself.
