Moving away from a location-centric system

6 posts in this topic

Posted

Back on the old Advent Destiny, we used the outdated system of having forums and sub-forums to represent the locations. That resulted in empty or rarely-used boards. It also restricted where players can role-play. We will be moving on to a new system where role-plays will be created as threads and are free to jump between locations as long as they role-play or mention the travelling involved.

You might wonder how we will keep track of the location then? The answer is the tags system. RP threads are to be tagged with their locations. Other players can click on the tag and get the full list of role-plays that occur in that particular location.

I think that'd be pretty cool. Is there any way you can post a list of tags used? Kind of like on Live journal?

@BrightBlurr, what do you mean by a list of tags used? Do you mean a standardised or recommended list of tags?

@Valiant Just a list of all of the tags that have been used on the site. I don't know if it's too much, but having a page on the forum set aside to show what tags are being used (like a total list of what locations were tagged, etc) might help organize what things are going on.

Ah, yes. We will definitely have a list of map locations. More like a compendium page that helps newcomers with the locations too..

Tags linked from the maps maybe? Click on the location, and up pops the background, key information, and link to the RPs?
