Concerning our website: Redwall's Lagacy was one of the best, most active Redwall forums in existance for a short few weeks. It was also one of the best for a longer time than that, but lately it has into diarray. I want to ressurect our beloved site, And this is how I propose we do it:
As of currently, we havve had two story arcs in play. Valmorg, Palsat and Trok. Lady Murimin's attack on Salalmandastron. These two story arcs were amazing and all, but the involved members have mostly died out. We are considering different options:
- Passing along stroy arc responsibilities
- Starting a new arc
- Continuing the story arc until members return
What is your opinion on these? Do you have another suggestion? Personally, I belevie that it would be wisest to toss the old story arc, archive it, and begin again. However, I will not make this descision for you.
The current situation involving the story arc prevents full and active progression, as we have thus far experienced. If we begin again, we may have a better, clearer path to walk down and people can begin posting again without worry of overrunning the site.
This does not mean that we will be disposing of all topics if this is the descion that we make. It only means that those topics involved with the story arc will be archived.
This is not exactly RL speaking. RL and I made a mutual agreement that this must be posted. RL is passing along the full responsibility of the site into my hands. You have probably guessed by now that this is Seth. RL is going to be leaving on a mission for our Church soon and then is going to college. He will likely never come back to RL, but the chances are that he may come back and say HI at some point or other.
Along with this new responsibility, I will be obligating some of it to other people, in case I go inactive for a short while again. (aka: if I get grounded or injured) So, I am also giving people new leadership jobs. If you would like a job, please inform me and the members can choose how it will be decided. Whether by voting, Leader's deciding, ect.
We must also decide what to do with faithful members. I would like to reward them in some way for their loyalty to the site. Anybody may give suggestions (including faithful members )
There are some Moderators that are no longer active. Barkstripe may be among them. This means that there are new position open, such as Recorder, Badger Lord, Noonvale Moderator and more. Please apply for positions if you wish to have them.
Suggestions for improvements
Does anyone think that there needs to be improvements. It think there are do. Among these is the need to update the news headings, which should be done every two weeks or so, at least. This would fall under the Recorder's responibilities.
Archiving topics? (Clean the site?)
When I said earlier that there needed to be topics removed, I didn't mean deleted. I meant archived, as I did clearify. There are a lot of topics out there that are no longer active. There are only about… um... one RP topics active at the moment. Thank you, Criegon, for starting "Escape".
What is your opinion on archiving the topics?
Dead Members? (Clean them?)
We have members that have not come back to the site in months, or that have never posted at all. I think that if there are members that have not been active in the past four months, they should be removed. Was is you opinion?
There are dead and dying sites with faithful members clining to them. LORA is among them, a once very active site. I have recently heard that it is slowing up, as are we. It may be possible to recruit active members from there to here.
Also, if you know how to contact any of the dead members here, please contact them.
Criegon and I will not be able to post here for the next few days, at least. Our parents have decided to shut down the internet in our house for next little while. I will return however, by the end of this month. I prominse. In the meantime, please post lots here for when I get back. When I do, I expect to see lots of members back and lots of posts in this topic by hopeful and faithful members.
Farewell until next time!
