Just want to set a few guidelines for RP stories created in our Public and Collaborations areas. A couple of things in your title will help readers and other posters to know what kind of audience a story is appropriate for, and if they are invited to join into your stories or not. In general, when starting a thread, in your title you should include the following:
[Title] [Rating G-R] and [Status - Open, Semi-Open, Closed]
For example: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest While Dirty Dancing [R - Semi-Open]
What RP status means is who's allowed to post in your story thread. "Open" means everybody. You're inviting all writers of all skill levels, without any guidelines. "Semi-Open" means you'd like to have other people contribute to the thread, but you'd like to retain some editorial control. People should contact you with ideas for contributions and work with you to iron out any inconsistencies before posting. "Closed" means that the author(s) have already planned out the story, and don't feel they can include others without disruption.
Additionally, if you are posting in an established story line that has its own category (Like "4th War" or "The Moonlit") then you should also include a designation to that category, just to make sure it gets and stays grouped with the appropriate collaboration. Like so:
Example: [4th War] Hellscream's for Ice Cream [G - Open]
If you have any questions about creating threads in these forums, feel free to contact me here at the site or in this thread!
