Character Files

Post by LunarScorpio on Mon Aug 17, 2009 2:14 pm

Alright, it was suggested to me that I move the Character Files into the Original Prose section of PoW. I’m not sure if I like it there or not. I would like to get some input on where you guys think this should go. I think it’s kind of hidden in the Original Prose section, but I mean, I could be wrong. So, I’ll put up a little poll, but if you have other suggestions, please feel free to throw them out there!

I personally think that the Prose section may not be the right place for it.

I mean, when people make files for their characters, the characters they make the files for are generally... RP characters, right? So at the very least, I think that the best place for it would be in an OOC RP forum, since the files are probably going to be more relevant to RP's than to prose. o;

EDIT: Oh, now that I look at it, it seems the most logical place for them would be as a sub-forum in the 'Interest Check' area. I'm not sure how many people here do this, but I've seen a few people point to a list of characters they had before and say 'Here, pick one you want to play with' before. So it would be kind of like checking the interest in some such character or something. At least that's what makes sense to me. :U

Well there are some who make character profiles for characters that are in stories or in their novels. They are original characters I would hope, so why not put them where stories can be found? If not, interest check I guess can still be good. This suggestion came to me through pm, so I only voiced it.

Well, something I didn't think of is, I could make a character thread for stories and one for RPs. But I don't know how much use would be made out of that.

Hm.... I am not sure. As Karali said, most characters are solely for rps. I might just be crazy to make profiles for my novel characters. If you have two character threads, it might confuse the other users and there will be a lot of mistakes. That's what I think anyway.

It was just another idea to throw out there. I just need to know where you guys think it should go and what would make sense. Right now it seems to be a tie with one vote somewhere else.

It looks like the Interest check is in the lead as to where the Character Files will go. I'll leave this open for a few more days if anyone else has any more input.

I gotta say, I never really had much of a problem with the Character Files being its own thing. I understand the view that it should be under the Interest Check, but I don't feel as though it belongs there. If anything, I think it might be best to put it under a user's profile page somehow, but I'm not sure if that's feasible. Character files are per person, whereas Interest Checks are per RP. And Original Prose, though I think works better than the Interest Check, just doesn't seem right. It's not really prose, you know?

Anyway, that's my two cents.

I think they should go in the original prose section.
I don't know about anyone else, but before I start writing I plan out my characters, and if people are reading what I'm writing they can check them out.

I hardly write out character profiles for role plays. D:

I moved the Character Files into its own category, tell me what you guys think of it being there.

Works for me. Right between prose and RPing, seems like that's where it belongs.

I agree with RS.
It's easy to get to and easy to find.
