RPG Moderators stepping down

Post by Arano » Sat May 15, 2021 9:14 pm

Gingastar and Astor are stepping down as RPG moderators as life is busy! Thank you both for your ideas and contributions :tfw_bella2:

I am happy to recruit someone else to manage the section. If you use the forum and have your own ideas for how it could work, comment below or send me a PM. Doesn't have to be one person, you could team up with another person like Gingastar and Astor did :)

I'm also open to thoughts on whether the section could work without moderation. We had an unmoderated RPG section previously, but without any kind of guidance or story driven aspect the section died out and wasn't used. I'd like to avoid this and keep it alive for those who do want to use it!

WHAT?! Astor and Gingastar are stepping down?!

I wish there would be a way to show our biggest thanks and appreciation for them.

Good luck to both of them on what they will do next. ❤️

I think having a fairly laid back moderation of the forum would be ideal. I think moderating character creation is a fairly solid idea because there were questionable characters in the past without it. I think this is one of the things the new RPG forum has gotten right as the moderation has been mostly light on this aspect while still intact as a safeguard. I also think it would be nice to retain the position in the sense that you guys are busy and there are a lot of roleplay posts to watch.

I'd be happy to help either alone or with someone else.

I feel like the RPG section's been fine, those of us who are actually involved know well enough that I'm sure we could call out anything bad when and if we see it.

Agreeing with everything Trout is saying here.

I too am always willing to help out on the forum if help is needed :)

Thank you guys!
Mostly I’m just sorry! I had so many ideas for the RPG section but my health became horrendous, most recently landing me in hospital with kidney failure.
While I’m recovering, I realise I need more time to focus on my health and stressing about the board wasn’t helping. I’ll miss my Kurotora rank though! :tfw_orion1:

Thank you Gingastar and Astor for being such a big help in the RPG section! I'd love to help, though I'm sure someone with more experience on this site would be better. Still, I have a lot of experience in roleplaying, so if my help is needed, I'll be happy to give it!

Thank you Astor and Gingastar for all your hard work up until now! Focusing on health is much more important, and I wish the best for the both of you!

I'd also be up for helping to manage the forum, but other people with more experience would be a better bet :tfw_bella2:
