Activity System Changes on Feb. 2

Postby Fujiwara no Mokou » 19 Jan 2013 22:42

We will be changing the activity system on Saturday, February 2nd, to the final version of the revision to the weekly scan system. Last chance for people to weigh in on it.



New system:

We will have a weekly scan like we have now, except that when a thread comes up stalled, we give a strike to the person who has had the longest period without posting instead of looking at the posting pattern.

Idling will change to a simple requirement that people post at least once every 4 weeks, anywhere on the IC boards. This ensures that people are actually posting and not sitting on a character while they wait for their turn, which the current system is supposed to do but doesn’t necessarily succeed at. At the same time, it doubles the period from 2 to 4 weeks, which should give people plenty of time to wait for their turn to come up in a thread, or to start a new one. Passes can be given for special circumstances.


Passing and flexible turn orders:

People will also be able to say in their posts that they want to be skipped until a certain other person posts, or that they don’t plan to post anymore in a thread unless addressed by other characters to signal that they should be skipped until further notice. This would remove them from the weekly activity requirement while letting others continue the thread at a steady pace. As usual, if anyone posts in a thread, no one else has to worry about getting a strike for that thread for that week.


Advantages to these changes:

--A less rigid posting order, letting people skip or ask to be skipped by others, or to have a fluid, changing post order to fit what makes sense.
--People will be able to pop into threads briefly, then do something in the background without having to continue posting unless interacted with by someone else. Example: one of the prismrivers could drop into a thread and play background music at a party, without having to continue posting if they don’t have anything to react to.
--The idling system actually does what it’s supposed to, and makes sure people are actually posting, while giving them twice as long to do it so that the 2 threads = safe (3 threads = safe for people with alts) loophole shouldn’t be necessary, hopefully preventing people from feeling like they have to open up a thread they may not care about just in case their turn doesn’t come up in their other thread(s).


Announcing that you want to be passed:

If you want to be passed in a thread, please give as much detail as you can in bold at the end of your post. For instance,

<Thread text>

[Passing until Kaguya joins the scene]

If you want to be in the background of a scene but not post regularly, you might say,

<Thread text>

[In the background continuing what I'm doing until addressed]

Having it be at the end and in bold will help it stand out for the moderators to read.

Hiatus system:

We are also be amending the time off system, to make posting hiatus less of a gamble. You will now be able to post in Time Off that you may not be able to post, but then be refunded your hiatus time if you end up not needing it.

Recast policy change:

Characters that are recast will get a couple of days to make final posts in their threads if they wish, to leave IC or to wrap something up before archiving the thread.

We will also be applying the 1-month waiting period to retake a character lost to activity to applying for new characters as well.
