Policy Change Consideration

(1/5) > >>

Guest (Deleted):
I'm considering the following policy changes and would like an informal weighing in by the community on whether these should be allowed.

1) As a reward for their work, PbP Gamemasters would be granted 150x150 avatars and 400 message PM boxes as an admin has.

2) Alt id accounts for characters in PbP would have 150x150 avatars, but wouldn't be able to post outside the Pbp forum.

This is sort of a sideways answer, so forgive me up front.

I really really like the idea of somehow allowing alt accounts so that people who post to their PbP games are allowed to post in character, have an avatar that perhaps resembles their character, etc.

I don't know whether its important (or possible) to tie those accounts to a poster's main account, but it would be nice to think that someone's participation in a PbP game counts as participation on the board more generally.

Sorry, one more thing.

For me, whether I have space for 100 or 400 PMs is pretty much irrelevant.  I don't get that many PMs and even when I was getting them, I am pretty organized, deleting the ones I don't need.

It's not that I wouldn't take a larger inbox, but it doesn't change the calculus of the deal one way or the other for me.

Hope that didn't sound negative. :)

I am guessing here, but I'm wondering if the larger inbox is, instead of a reward, intended to help you run your game easier.

If you are running a PbP, you may end up with a lot of PMs that you don't want to delete, to help you keep track of what's going on with characters in your game. Just a thought. I don't want to sound negative either. :)

I think they are both good ideas.

Very good idea and as obvious as it seems now, one that I didn't think of. :D
