As announced previously, the Lore Section Forum Restructure has been completed. We decided to change the structure as many different features were very difficult to find, and other application boards had just been dumped where they were assumed to be correct, causing a lot of information to get mixed up. Many of the Rule pages were needing a heavy update, and we wanted to also get rid of ex-staff personal pages by replacing them with the official MassiveCraft poster. The following results were put in place: Lore un compliant roleplay campaigns were moved to the Off-Topic Section. un compliant roleplay campaign sign up threads are no longer permitted. Character Sheets section renamed to Character Applications for consistency. Created an Example application on the Character Applications board and sticky'd it. Moved all permission application threads (Noble, Zehler, etc.) into the Permission section. Renamed the old permission section to the Registry. Removed Hidden Bloodlines from the Registry system. The above are now all under Character Creation. Roleplay Events has been split off into it's own section to facilitate a more centralized list of concluded and upcoming events. Event Staff Assistance thread has been stickied in said Events section for ease of use. World Progression posts have been made a subsection of the Events section. We have additionally also added strict regulations on no OOC posting on World Progression posts. Lore Adventures section has been made, but will not yet be used until the system is complete. Regalian Roleplay has been made its own section, in here the old notice board and announcement roleplay takes place. We have put very strict regulation in place as to what is allowed and what isn't to cut down on the OOC memes and unrelated spam that those threads usually suffer. Additionally we put strict rules in place about anonymity and usage of the section to avoid players excusing themselves from the consequences of their publicity, to further discourage unproductive and unfriendly roleplay ethics and behavior that invites salt. A separate section has been made for the Guilds and Organizations, where players can create their own Guilds and Organizations, but also use application threads for approved Charters within the Regalian Empire. Furthermore also expanded to explain how to acquire an approved Charter. Roleplay Families has also been added to this section, while also clarifying the Family Ownership rights. The Estate Management has also been added to this section for ease of reference, and we combined all split off threads into a single large thread. Past estate requests that were not yet answered must be re-filed. Lore Stories have been put as a sub category under the Regalian Roleplay, since it's somewhat related to roleplay in general, but we have some pretty strict rules on how to reply and what you can reply. All above sections (below the Character Creation ones) are part of the Roleplay Events and Regalian Roleplay sections. Roleplay Information is a new section that is purely about OOC communication about the lore, roleplay and the universe in general. In here, all relevant information stickies have been placed such as MPM usage, Wiki updates and government information etc. Furthermore, all Lore Discussion and Writing prompts have been moved here. The Player Writing Prompts have been put under the Roleplay Information section. The Lore Q&A has been put under the Roleplay Information section. Please endeavor to read all the new rule pages before making use of a specific section! Further Q&A Are all the old threads deleted? No, all threads have been saved in a storage where they can be freely accessed by Staff. Can I revive an old thread of mine? We decided not to move over content that was older than 2 months because it was deemed inactive. Lore stories were pulled over from December last year. If you want a thread to be brought back from storage, you may request so on this thread. However, when requesting, you should provide reasons why it should be brought back, and what you are going to use it for. We will not bring back lore in compliant roleplay sign-up threads unless they actually contain pertinent information to the roleplay campaigns. I don't like change! Change is by nature uncomfortable, but we have structurally reorganized everything so that the section "make sense". Everything that is either an application or a permission or a roleplay or belonging to a certain theme is all grouped together and there are no third layered sub-sections anymore, meaning everything can be found within 2 clicks. This is superior, and it will stay this way. Can we not do Lore compliant form Roleplays anymore? No, you cannot. We prefer if you actually do this in-game or over PM or over Skype or Discord. The reason why we chose to do this is because it otherwise just becomes a private roleplay except with spectators. It makes no sense when we disallow OOC spectating on the server, but for some reason allow it on the forum. I found an Error/cannot use a feature because it tells me I lack a permission! Please post about it here. There was a lot of work to do and it took hours out of our days, so we may have made an error.
