    Hello! I just joined and I like the site but something about the roleplay section bothers me...

    The roleplay is just one, huge. open board with no way to tell who's where in a thread. Sure you could put it in the title but that just seems... odd. I was wondering if you could put up some sub boards? Nothing extravagant but like separate the roleplay into inner, ring, middle ring, and outer ring. And maybe put planets in each? I'm worried that you may not want to since it takes a lot of work. But I'm willing to help! [even if I don't know much about Star Wars lore/universe ^^;] Anyways, it's just a suggestion, feel free to ignore my idea xD;;

    Hey Zeke. It'a not a bad idea but since we have just started I think one board would be best, otherwise you will have all these empty sub boards which will more likely confuse newcomers and make the site look very inactive. Sub boards are certainly an idea for the future though.

    Welcome to the forum! Only thing with multiple board it's hard to keep track of where people are and where the latest roleplays are.

    In the last RP forum I was on, we had a main galaxy thread. Inside that was a list of planets. The main 15 planets had sub-boards like Orbit, a city, and/or a town. Basically, every planet had three to five sub-boards. And it actually made things very simple. For example; say you have the planet Korriban. This is what the planetary thread would look like:

    Korriban Orbit
    Dreshdae/Spaceport
    Valley of the Dark Lords
    The Great Temple

    That is how things were set up. To be more direct, the navigation would look something like this:

    Galaxy Map > Sith Space > Korriban > Korriban Orbit

    and so on. Now, that's exhausting to do immediately, but I found it to be a very effective format.

    I actually like this. I'll talk to Nis about it the next time we're on at the same time and see if we can work something out like that.
