Title: Topic Descriptions
Post by: Dani on Aug 24, 11, 11:06:46 AM
Hello All,

Recently a new add on for our forum was installed: Topic Descriptions.

This can be used for showing whom the thread is intended for. Example: "Attn: Marie". It can even be for open threads. Example: "Open".

When a thread is done and locked you can also go back and include a short description of the thread. Example: "Marie and Xavier investigate rumors of Kindred, finding something they didn't expect." This will only make your thread MORE interesting for new players and it will be helpful for players when looking for old material.

Also, characters will see a new form to their accepted applications. Instead of adding the caste and Jewels to the topic itself, the Caste and Jewels will be added in the Topic Description. Example, previously we had: "Marie Gallagher [witch, Yellow to Rose]". Now you will see: "Marie Gallagher" as the topic, and the description as "witch, Yellow to Rose. Played by X". This will allow everyone to see who plays the character easily instead of being forced to open the application itself.

Please think about updating your threads and characters with this new schema. There is not incentive for going back and editing your characters beyond the fact that the staff will smile, nod, and appreciate the effort. Going back and editing your posts and topics likewise will only receive the same good and warm fuzzy feelings. (Also, my OCD will probably catch me changing them for you at some point if I notice them months from now).

Thank you all! PM or email the staff for any questions. (staff@bloodrites.net)

Due to my admin account I did not notice a small issue right away. (Thank you Blue.) Players cannot edit locked topics.

If you need topics unlocked please PM or IM me. Thank you.
