Alright! The suggestions we have had so far are below. I have responded to them in Bold considering requests I received when I was Moderator under my old penname. Your suggestions were:

  1. Delete All Threads From 2010

I agree that some old threads need to be deleted. However, when I expressed interest in deleting them before, under my old account, I was asked to save the following threads in case posters came back. These threads will stay up until I have gained permission from the creator to delete them:

  • Alice in Wonderland
  • Fire Vs Ice
  • Captain Ward
  • Fearless
  • Reflections Echo

2. Delete All Threads Below Ninjas RPG

I think that some of these threads, minus the ones I mentioned above can be deleted. I would like Members to vote Yes/No for the deletion of the following threads. Any threads not mentioned are created by ME or I have invested characters within them and want to attempt to bring them back to life.

  • Nexus Arena 3
  • Zombie Apocalypse
  • Character Development Game
  • Writing Styles and methods and fun discussion stuff XD
  • Serious Off Topic Discussions

3. Maybe Re-Start A Few of the Old Threads

I agree with this idea mainly because I invested some strong characters into threads that sort of died away. Member Vote Yes/No on the following threads. If you vote YES information from the threads will be saved and sent to the participants and ALL POSTS in the threads will be deleted. The First Post will be Edited to keep the GAME RULE the same.

  • Zombie Pandemic
  • Super Heroes RPG 2
  • Firefly
  • Character Development 1
  • Hunger Games
  • High School RPG

4. Kick Staring New Threads

I am really hesitant to back this idea. If enough of the Members can convince me that they would keep the thread Alive - as I will invest characters into them - I will be up for supporting the development of the following threads:

  • Avatar Airbender RPG

These are the current topics. Please respond to them by Number and use formatting to get the bullet points so I know what you are voting yes or no for! For now, that is a summary of what I read you all saying. When Votes are in I will delete the threads that have received YES votes for that and work on fixing up some of the other Topics.

All threads that I have been given permission to delete are struck through below:

  1. Delete All Threads From 2010

  • Alice in Wonderland
  • Fire Vs Ice
  • Captain Ward
  • Fearless
  • Reflections Echo

Agent of Chaos: Okay thanks for the heads up. Can you please re-read through the previous post and Vote for the threads you want to see kept and deleted. I'm trying to get everyone involved in the Voting Process so nobody is disadvantaged by a thread being deleted. Do you have all the information that was provided in Reflections Echo? If not I can save it to a file and then delete the thread.

Agent of Chaos: Sorry to be a pain, but in the first post I asked if Voting could follow the format I used. Numbered Sections with just a Bold 'Yes' or 'No' by each thread title. I know it seems a pain but if you could re do your post to Vote with just 'Yes' or 'No.' And that's not exactly true. You should vote on all threads and give your honest opinions.

1. Deleting All Threads From 2010

My own responses are in bold :) I'm assuming yes means delete and no means don't. Even though I haven't participated in any of these RPG's I'm voting based on the fact that nobody seems to be posting to these threads at all.

  • Nexus Arena 3 Yes
  • Zombie Apocalypse Yes
  • Character Development Game Yes
  • Writing Styles and methods and fun discussion stuff XD Yes (well, a redo of this wouldn't be bad because help with writing is always good)
  • Serious Off Topic Discussions Yes

3. Maybe Re-Start A Few of the Old Threads

  • Zombie Pandemic YES! I love zombies!
  • Super Heroes RPG 2 No; Brainiac's Bane is superhero based so it would be like duplicating threads.
  • Firefly Yeah, sure. I've watched a little bit of this; it would be interesting
  • Character Development 1 No; if you could condense all help with writing and character developments into one thread it would be better
  • Hunger Games Yes, this would be interesting
  • High School RPG Yes; I'm indifferent to this one, though.

4. Kick Starting New Threads

  • Avatar Airbender RPG

I'm indifferent because I haven't participated in this one. If this thread comes back alive I'll invest the time to read through the posts so I can catch up and play. There was another thread called Vampires Et Al that seems interesting; everybody can come up with some kind of a vamp so it wouldn't be hard to kick start or redo.

(I'm confused on whether 'yes' is keep or delete...so I will specify.)

  • Nexus Arena 3 No, don't keep.
  • Zombie Apocalypse No, don't keep.
  • Character Development Game No, don't keep.
  • Writing Styles and methods and fun discussion stuff XD Yes, a version of this should probably be kept up.
  • Serious Off Topic Discussions No, don't keep. Unless at a later point we decide it might be useful.

3. Maybe Re-Start A Few of the Old Threads

  • Zombie Pandemic No, don't keep.
  • Super Heroes RPG 2 No; Brainiac's Bane is basically the reboot.
  • Firefly Yes, keep. However, we should restart it.
  • Character Development 1 No, don't keep.
  • Hunger Games Yes, keep or maybe reboot. It's a big deal right now, I however have not read them so I will not be joining.
  • High School RPG No, don't keep.

4. Kick Starting New Threads

  • Avatar Airbender RPG No, don't keep/indifferent. I don't much care for the Avatar Airbenders.

If it's alright, I'd just like to mention the only two threads I care about.

First, I'd like to see Combined Universe stay, if only for the hope that it goes somewhere. I liked that one.

Second... well, if no one wants to continue, there's no point in keeping Zombie Pandemic, but if people are still interested I've learned a lot more about zombie stuff thanks to the Walking Dead, and I'd like to use that knowledge.

Nexus Arena 3 is dead, I believe; Zombie Apoc. is dead as well; Zombie Pandemic, I've lost my interest and direction with that. Not sure.

I'd like to keep Combined Universe Wars.

Announcement: By request I have attempted to delete a bunch of spam threads. If one of them was yours, feel free to attempt to re-start it. But since I'm back at this if it doesn't appear to me to "fit" I may just delete it again. If you have suggestions or questions please run them by me.

Does anyone know if the other mods are active on here?

Peace, God Bless,

Mongoose
