Hey guys! I just have a little mod note that I want to get out there. It’s more or less something I want to get off my chest, because for the most part, I’ve kept it to myself. Every couple of months, I’ve suddenly gotten very stressed out over this roleplay. It’s been 5 months, so it’s only happened once or twice before today, but it’s starting to become apparent that I need to actually tell other people besides one person. It’s always about the same thing, too.
I know everyone loves this roleplay. You say it all the time, and that’s so great because I love it too. But at the same time, I feel like there needs to be some more initiative as a collective group to keep it going. I’ll say right away that part of this problem is my fault for pushing shuffles as much as I do. Sometimes people become dependent on them. I really only want them for pushing the main plot along. We’ve always encouraged you all to plot with one another and come up with individual plots. A handful of you do that, and through doing that, you come up with great ideas for the whole group and share them with me. Thanks for that! c: I love including your ideas in shuffles and what not. But, shuffles are pretty intense and time consuming. We’re going to be pulling back on them some, and that actually makes me kind of scared with what kind of effect it will have.
The problem with the shuffles is that we don’t always get everything played out. Some shuffle points don’t even get started because of players being gone. I know we’ve had school to battle with, but it’s been an occurring thing since before then. I also feel like the weeks tend to turn into most people waiting for the next shuffle or something.
Activity has also been slipping. People only pop on in short amounts and things don’t get accomplished. Most of the dash is just gif chats and not a whole lot of paras anymore, and we need both to keep things going.
I also sometimes wonder how many people are even checking up on the main anymore. I asked for you guys to just send us in a brief run down of what happened for our previously on, and only a small group of you did this, and i posted about it twice.
I’m in no way giving up on this roleplay, but at the moment, I need to make sure you guys are going to be willing to help push plots on your own and actually get things completed. I love what’s going on here with all of the characters, but after months of hard work on the modly end of things, I need to know that all of you will promise to stay active, to plot, and keep things going in order for me to still want to put 500% into this group.
It’s something we all have to do collectively, so I need you guys to help me make sure this roleplay continues to be great!
