Removal of Role-playing applications
It's kinds cluttery and we don't really need to apply to role play.
Should I remove it from the navigation bar?
I don't like the idea of a wiki that out right bans "Mary-Sues"
It's just.. not fair I think people should be able to make their characters how they want imho
Anyways, that seems like a good idea, Aniju
I guess I'll revise it then (somehow)
We don't ban mary-sues. A lot of characters actually may seem like Mary Sues or start off as one but get character devolopement as time goes on, even through role play. For role play purposes we didn't want people to be god-moding. And we feared trolls would take advantage of the role play to do harm to other people. Most characters made by trolls are Mary-Sues because they want to make fun of our fandom. For the short amount of time the role play was going on we never had a problem with characters or with trolls so that was good.
On second thoughts, forget my previous statement. Yes, we should at least revise the role-play application but it was too hasty for me to suggest we delete it. We're not the MLP wiki, we're Bronies wiki for free creativity of fan content.
I love a good RP me, if we could revise the system to work smoothly and nicely then I'd probably use it a bit.
That being said, exactly how we revise it is a bit of a question...
Well, we could look at wiki's that are all about RPGing and see how they do it?
I never RPd on a wiki before. I mean I had plenty of oppotunity, even on a Sonic wiki, stuff's just over my head.
