Thanks for your input about CM so far, guys. I think keeping it as a board RP seems to be the way to go, then. :) We shall set about doing our best to improve it! If you have any other thoughts or suggestions about the game though, do let us know, and we'll see what we can incorporate. *nods*

Still can't give you a reopening date, I'm afraid :( (and we are utterly dying to reopen), but one small nugget of info that I can pass your way is that we do have a new RPG lined up for being open when the board reopens. (It could possibly be more than one, but I don't want to commit to anything for definite and then not end up meeting it.) You can definitely look forward to some (hopefully!) fun stuff in the near(-ish) future, though - but no teasers right now, because we're sort of hoarding all the surprise goodness for reopening. Buaha. :D

That's something you can all answer, though (and I'm too lazy to make a poll for this one, sorry): do you like teasers, or do you prefer complete surprise? How much info is a good teaser, and how much just ruins things?

Yaaay. :D I'm so looking forward to new RPGs. *giggles* Can't wait for you guys to open! *bounces around hyperly* I wanna know what it is, haha! :(

Uhhhh... I think I like teasers. Because compared to complete surprises, I have something to look forward to and to speculate about? To think about what it is and get excited? Yeah. Teasers are good... and hmmm... I'm not sure how much would ruin things. I guess fun things to reveal would either be the theme of an RPG for example, or if it is a board or a freeform. Something like that? I really don't know. I guess even if I knew everything and had not seen it, I would still be really pumped to finally see it with my own eyes! LOL

Hi tis Claire, (Armageddon).

I did want to raise one point for anyone reading this:

Blind Faith - Is anyone actually interested in the RP? I only got 1 appilcation when the board closed down and it has been there for several months. If it is not wanted I will just copy and save all of the work I did on it and the forum can be deleted once I have it all saved up... but I would like to give it a proper go, you know?

Let me know if there is really any interest or people just saying "I'll join" then having no intention of doing so.

I probably I won't be upset either way :P OR bite you!

xxx

Hmmm... BF. The thing is I love the theme, cause angels are something really interesting to me, but somehow the RPG or the characters didn't really captured me? It's nothing personal against you, it's just that every time I read an RPG or look at the characters, there's about 1-3 chars that jump out at me and that I want to play and for some reason that didn't happen. But hey, not everyone can have the same taste! I don't know... I can't really give you ideas on how to make it better, cause I don't know it myself, though out of experience I do know that a lot of people rather play girls than guys, which might explain the poor reception. A 1/3 guys, 2/3 girls quota, or AT LEAST half and half are what seems to be working best, out of my experience.

I know that's probably not a change you might want to take, cause it would be rather drastic, but I just thought I'd throw it out there. ;)

Like with CM, I did genuinely intend to apply, but I've been very busy.

However, from a general point of view (and I've said this before) - I think having too many men is an oversight. The majority of roleplayers are women, and a lot of them only play girls.

Mah. I am scared of LJ and all of it's... LJness.

Anyway, I joined because of missing everyone =( It's Holly by the by, incase it doesn't say that when I post. It's literally been forever since I used this scary site!!

Ehm. That was all ^_^

Er, hi. ^^' None of you know me, as the site closed before I did anything much, but I'm Kat/SanityFair. Once the site reopens, I'll try to do more. Partly because I don't want Maggie to kill me :o

I'm (unsurprisingly) interested in BF, but if it doesn't get put up, I was just curious - d'you think the one app would have been cast, lol?

Hello :) I don't recall seeing you round the board much lately, but yes, you have been cast. :)

hey, its Michal [Rainy Days] :D

baaa, this account is SO old.... dont mind the username... lol xD

anyhow, Claire - I read BF properly the week before CR closed, and I was so hyper about it, I wanted to write down and application and everything! and then when I got home from the army, CR was closed :( it was one of the saddest things ever [lol ^_^] but for the record: I LOVE BF!!! *nods* :D


as for other previews, I think they're good as long as they dont reveal too much. I mean, its good to know what to expect to, and even start thinking of a charatcer, or just an AI possibly, and its just good to know whats ahead [I think its especially good in my case, because I cant be on the computer everyday, so if I miss they day you guys open a new RPG, Id feel so behind.... lol ^_^ ] so, I think small previews are good :)


other than that, I miss you guys! I hope you reopen soon enough :)

hugs and kisses to you all :D xoxoxox
