This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

On Actual play & Gamecraft...

Question:

Threads regarding things like "how to plan a game" would belong in this forum, if I'm reading this right.

So would "our game last night".

Should they be 'tagged' seperately as [Craft] and [Play], or similar?

Hi Levi! Nice to see you here.

Yes, "how to plan a game" and "our game last night" would both belong in that forum. And while I'm not going to make it obligatory for anyone to "tag" their threads, that can certainly help people to tell the difference between what will be an actual play thread and a thread about the craft of RPGs.

BTW, I was hoping you might reconsider your earlier statements, and accept a position as Moderator of that new forum only. I kind of had you in mind when I invented it.

What do you say?

Hmm.

I'll get back to you.  That one needs some thinking on.

EDIT of the EDIT: After a little thought, I looked at how spread out I am, internet-wise, especially given that I'm also working on getting a game out.  There's no way I could do even a half-assed job of it and still have time to post here; I'm only going to be around this neck of the woods for a few minutes a day as it is.  So I'm going to leave it, this time around.
