Now that we’ve had a chance to settle in and grow as an RP community, why don’t we all take a chance to think about what we all want to know about our favorite RP characters. I’m sure we all have things we would like to know about so many of them, just the topic never comes up in the RP. However, now we all have our chance.
Like the weekly questions thread where a user is randomly selected to be the questions star for the week, this is where characters from any RP or SG can be selected to answer any questions that an RPer may want to know.
- Question threads will be posted on Fridays and will remain open for 1 week.
- Any user, whether they are an RPer or not, may ask questions.
- The questions are not being answered by the creator. They are answered by the character themselves. Please answer from the character’s perspective.
- An RPer will not have their characters chosen in back to back weeks.
- You must ask at least one question for each of the featured characters in the week to remain in the running for the next week.
- You must be part of this new tag, @RPQuestions, to have your character/s chosen. You may join this tag even if you don’t sign up a character, if you want to be notified of the weekly thread.
Each week will star one RPer’s character, but they can choose to let two characters star in the same week. If this is the case, they must own both characters, and both must be in the same RP or SG. The exception for this is in the case of two users having sibling characters. If each RPer desires, they may opt in to share the question thread for their sibling characters. (A few other exceptions may apply in certain cases.)
You can choose as many of your own characters to sign up as you want, but they must be from an RP or SG that has started, though if the RP or SG has died that is still fine. The RP or SG just had to get past the signup stage.
Write the character’s name and what RP or SG they were/are from when you sign them up.
A character can be selected a second time, but you have to sign them up again first due to the quantity of characters there are in the community.
If your character is chosen, you will be PMed prior to the opening of the thread to ensure that you can be active, and to see if it will be a single or double question thread.
How a character is decided
First, an RPer that has signed a character up on this thread will be randomly chosen.
Then if they have many characters across many different RPs that they have signed up for a questions thread, there will be another random pick of which RP or SG the chosen character will be from. Then the character will be randomly chosen from the remaining choices.
If the chosen RPer has a small number of characters that they have signed up for a questions thread, then the character will just be randomly chosen from there.
