PostSubject: Concerning Roleplaying Rules...   Sun Jul 24, 2011 2:24 am

I have been in an impasse. Mainly because I have been daunted by increasingly large amount of rules.

Here's the straight runthrough. The rules just CANNOT be shortened without losing some of the technicalities. I mean... I have been meant to shorten the rules, but I am already on page 10 on Word. THAT is far from shortening the rules.

So, I need an executive decision from the community... I have two options... if you have the third way, I am open for suggestion.


Suggestion 1:[b] Delete ALL the rules, start fresh.

It is... undesirable for me, because I have to reinvent the wheel. However, it can be done. Just a few simple rules, and rest are scrapped. Another big reason why I am personally against this is because I like to have a reason behind my every act... however, I believe that if you add "SoC OWNZ YOU!!!" in the constitution, that can be a just cause Razz


[b]Suggestion 2:
Separate Rules and Technicalities.

This is another idea that I have been coming up with... with equally undesirable thoughts. Mainly because I have to separate the rules into... like... two sections. One for the general public, and one for me and those who care. People don't need to know what Time Zone that the RP is in in order for them to RP. Plus... you can get the general consensus anyways. This has been sort of what Tiberiam had before... I mean besides the fact that NOBODY seemed to notice that I SIMPLIFIED the rules into something of a checklist for everyone... Same deal, except I am keeping the MASSIVE rule away from the public's eyes and into like a vault, so to speak... only to be accessed whenever there is a fight. Mainly reason why I don't like this? we never have disputes that either side won't give in. It seemed sort of moot point for Rules to be there when there is no need for them...




So you get my point. Both alternatives are downright "UGH!!!" factor for me. But a decision should be made... so... help?

P.S. if I HAVE to do one, I would say that suggestion uno seems to fit my taste a bit better ^^;

Plan 2 is what we have historically been doing, and it works.

Isis mandated that every RPer read his Golden Rule. There wasn't too much substance to it, but it was a good requirement for everyone to read. Other rules were recommended reading.

Just do that. Make a list of the bare essential and the additional.

So basically... leave EVERYTHING in tact, and just make a rule that people need to THINK about, right?

Hmmm... well, aight, if it floats your boat. So in the end, I just need to write about what you need to do...

Then here's a question for EVERYONE that thought I was making the RP rules more complicated by the second. I HAVE ALWAYS HAD THIS DAMN "SIMPLIFIED" RULE ON THE BLASTED BOARD.... WHY WAS EVERYONE EGGING ME ON SAYING THAT THE RULES WERE BECOMING MORE AND MORE COMPLEX? Seriously... when I make rules, I usually do it for one of two reasons: 1) to get more power 2) to get more power to order things around. Usually the latter is the case, as there tends to be some kind of confusion, and since SoC is only powered by the rules that the position creates (it doesn't have official constitutional powers), I make more rules to ensure that the chaos is under control. I mean... it says in sticky "simplified rules"... T^T don't make me waste time like this, dudes!

Rule 1: There are no rules.

I like Plan two.
Make it like "The Code" from Pirates of the Caribbean.
It's locked up unless there's a fight.
(Well maybe it can be put into a locked thread, where if someone's bored and wants to read "ALL" the rules, they can.)

Well... aight. I'll tuck away ALL the rules of Tiberiam (most likely everything that has been made will be copied and pasted back into the RP...) and you JUST need to keep few simple rules.

That sounds reasonable works for me as well. With an added plus that I already have all the rules set up in the "simplified rules of Tiberiam"

So... no need for new writing crap ^^ everyone winz!!!

As soon as the new forum starts, I'll copy and paste things into the RP...


And I know everyone's concern about confusion. I'll create "Office of Roleplay Immigration" or something to allow for easy-registration into the RPs for new members. Hopefully that will allow for smoother process.
