This is the greatest game ever. This is what happens when Capcom tries.
Discuss and let's all hunt together sometime.

I'd like to put in a voice against a return of the RP cash-in thread. Given how RPs are starting to become more resilient (for lack of a better term), it's all the more likely that once the thread gets use down the line, RP will become an economy-breaking section. The Grand Crossover RP has over 2,000 replies at present and still hasn't ended yet, so when it does end, the point reward for doing so will have to either be decent but with the payoff for other RPs being negligible, or the GCRP alone will pump more points into the economy than the mod forum did until just recently.
There's also the issue with RPs that constitute multiple threads (Cherry Heart is the only example right now). What determines when those end, and how does one calculate how many replies it had? All the threads, or just the main one?
Not sure on any economic plans for other sections, but I just wanted to come in to point out that bringing back the RP cash-in thread in particular is an awful idea. Not that anyone ever used it while it was around, so the thing won't actually do anything, unless it does, in which case RP will rapidly become the 1% down the line when a lot of the longer-lasting RPs come to a close.
Although, this is more something that should be discussed in RP itself, so I'll drop it there.
And I'd like to disagree with you. First of all, yes, RPs are coming back. But if you think they're ending any time soon, you're crazy. Most die before they ever get to the end, so those that do should get some reward. Make it like, 100-500 points for every page to everyone who was in the RP until the end, which really should only take a person looking over the last three pages, or even better, the host listing the people who should get points.
Also, use common sense with things like Cherry Heart. You know that it means the whole rp, not a small branch. With The Grand Crossover RP, you know that's an exception, not a rule. It's been going on for almost 5 years. Are you saying such commitment shouldn't be rewarded?
YCM Economy is basically: How you can get points, the amount obtained per post and possible things you can currently spend your points on.
Okay, this gets me. We're not a government or a kingdom. Our Economy isn't that important. Oh no, there are too many points! Now EVERYONE can name change or get in a member group! The horror! Everything will collapse if we don't regulate name changes.
You all are making this harder than it needs to be. I shouldn't be punished because I'm not interested in card making, or rewarded because I am. Yes, we are called Yugioh Card Maker, but that is not all we are. Just make a flat value for every post. Like 100 points for every post. Except mod posts. They get none. Why?
Because they can modify points. They don't NEED it. At all.

Can we do something about the swear filter?
Yes, I know, the main argument against it is that 'Immature people will abuse it', so the rest of us have to deal with the censoring unless we hand over points, which is either a monthly thing, which is unsustainable unless you post in the Card Maker section, or if you hand over 40,000 for a permanent group, which is a lot of points, and will take a long time to get to. Yes, you can also be a Legendary Member, but that's 10,000 posts.
I've been here for almost two and a half years and I only have 1,553 posts. My 32,000 and some odd points are also only the result of a loophole, a mod friend, and the fact the shop is broken. This is honestly ridiculous to me. How long do I have to be here before I can be considered 'mature enough' to cuss? It really lessen the impact of them in my rp posts.
And to the argument that kids might be on this forum, well, you have to be 13 to legally make an account on here, and I'm sure if children can play rated M games, a teenager can handle some cussing.
Edit: Someone gave me the remaining points to make myself a group. My point still stands, and I'm refusing to make this group until this question is resolved.

Reno eyes opened slowly at the sound of the alarm going off. It was another day, another reason he should have stayed in bed. Groaning to himself, he rolled out of bed, sighing as he stretched his nude body, its full glory unseen to the world. He then went to wash his body in the shower, warm water running down his muscular body, cleaning it of the filth and waking up the sleepy giant.
Finally, after drying off, Reno clothed himself, heading downstairs. He sighed as the smell of alcohol filled his nose. He knew what had happened last night, it was in his best interest to get out as fast as possible. Grabbing his bag, he rushed out the door, determined to get breakfast someplace else.
Friday, After School
It seemed there was a party going on. Reno never really went to parties. The last time he remembered going was... never. He wasn't a party kind of guy, and most people just left him alone. However, it seemed the party organizer was part of this club. Perhaps he did a bad thing coming to this club after all...
"Yeah, I know where his house is," Lace said with a smile. "So, what do you guys think? We gonna party, or what?"
"I mean...I think it would be cool if the whole club goes to the party like Kevin mentioned." Jason said, before smiling. "After all, with the basketball team not being there to be a nuisance, we might actually have a fun time there."
"Well, if I'm invited, sure. I'm not much of a party animal so be gentle with me."
It seemed like everyone was going. Reno thought about it. It was an excuse to stay out of the house, at the very least. "I guess I'll go to," He said with a shrug. "Never been to a party before though, so beats me what we do there,"

Hello! Welcome to the YCM Forums! I promise you we are a good people under a rough exterior of cardboard. The RP section is most absolutely active, and we are in fact

We also have a great team of people at the Card Maker, so make yourself at home! I know Yui will be here with a more detailed report of the site shortly.
