Well, I thought that I might not be answered in RP discussion, so I posted this here, since it IS a question.

I've waited for three days, and my RP character isn't accepted yet. Is this normal for the Harry Potter RP, or is something wrong? Please try to answer.

usually mods are the people that approve that stuff...we need a new mod

the only mod I ever see these days is HTS but I'm sure she's busy with life because I hardly see her here

(making an exception this once =D)

I posted my character on there like...last year...
It's still not accepted. Look for yourself =/
It's Albern. Even though it's still up there, I went ahead and just modified him a bit and put him in the GoG RP character thing...he was accepted that night.

I think the HP forum is officially DEAD.

Frink! I had a really good storyline...

Well, maybe it isn't dead, I guess. The seventh/eighth movie is coming out, so we might have a chance, but not a very good one... I hope it comes back.
Oh, man I hope it comes back...

FYI... I check nearly everyday (though not in the last week or two since school just started). I'm here. I just don't do RP (and you wouldn't want me to).

I see my character is excepted... XD but now I have another question: I want to post a topic about the Forbidden Forest, but only Mods can do it in HP RP. X3 So... do I PM a mod to post the topic for meh? :3

EDIT: Actually, I can't post at all! DX Why?! X3

an HP character accepted? I assume it was Neon

I need to write you down in permissions in order to post there; I'll do that now, then you can create your topic

I don't want to be hated or anything, but perhaps the same rule for GoG RP? People are making totally pointless RP topics, and abandoning good ones to start something pointless.

^Yeah, I agree. A Halloween topic is fine, for the holidays, you know, but some topics don't seem to even take place in GoG! D:

By the way, thanks Mikey! ^v^

The rule is the same with GoG, but after members get approved once they can post wherever in the section.

I'll clean up some posts and create a Sticky in the forum.

I honestly believe we should go back to the "only mods can create topics in the RP". That way the mod gets to see what the page is looking like. Another thing that bothers me (and i dont even rp anymore D: ) is the fact that a lot of the posts in the RP are one-liner posts. I thought there was a rule in place that it had to be so many sentences long and such. I am just speaking out for the, seemingly, minority of people who would like something more to read than "*name* catches a mouse. "This is great isn't it?""

Yeah, maybe we should, although I don't quite know how it works. Do you PM a mod for that? :3

Yeah, there should probably be a three-line-post rule, because sometimes when I'm RP'ing, I don't get enough of a previous post to work with how the story's turning out. D: I like posting long RP posts! XD

Hey i hit 2000 posts, woot!

Yeah we used to have to PM a mod about a new topic. We would write down how we want it to open up, the mod will then decide to approve/disapprove it based on how well set up the person's post is.

I would like at least a paragraph. I still read the RP for fun. Nothing makes me sadder than a short post.

I'd prefer not to go to the "Mod Only" rule because I don't have the best judgement for those types of things. However, if anyone wants to go that route, maybe they can contact Neon or High Tyto Soren about that.

I've posted the new rules, and the basic guideline for creating settings is that the RPs take place in Ga'Hoole only, so try your best not to create any extra settings that have not been created by members in the past.

Meh, was just an idea. I see how you wouldn't want to go with the mods only rule. Lots of extra work, then if you dont approve, Flaming is a possibility. I like the rule listings though. They seem mostly complete. Only missing a sentence count requirement (if any).
