Poll's going up a day earlier than I said, to make way for some IC changes happening tomorrow evening. Some points to consider:

➤ We will be keeping both the Livejournal and Dreamwidth communities open, to keep everyone happy. This is now a post to decide our official home. This is not a 'majority wins' vote. This is a consideration, because of the following reasons.

➤ LJ has had plenty of time to read over the outcry from their users and reverse the changes they made. They have refused. Furthermore, they have bigger plans for the future design of the site.

➤ Even if we remained exclusively on LJ, we would NOT be using S2 styles. After 100 comments and/or multiple threads, S2 layouts cut off, removing the ability to scroll down to later threads. This effectively erased our longer posts when we tried this.

➤ Since LJ made the changes, the only new activity has taken place on the DW mirror. Nine posts on DW, two on LJ, both events. Replies to the event posts have been mirrored on both sites as well, and DW is the only one to get any replies. Interest seems to be exclusively on the DW community for now.

Given this, while event posts will remain cross-posted for the next two weeks, with the majority of activity we will likely move anyway. I will continue moderating the community as long as people are interested in posting here (it's not a hard job, you've all been pretty easy-going!), but new events and changes will slowly stop being cross-posted.

➤ re: Dreamwidth, we will be importing the community fully very soon. DW has made some additions and changes of their own, and we are now able to fully import communities and their comments. (Currently this is restricted to paid accounts, and communities with over 100k comments will have to wait and import their comments later. Entries are imported at the normal rate. I am purchasing a paid account for the DW DR on January 3rd and will get started on this asap!) DW has shown amazing reliability so far, having 20k new accounts created within a day after LJ's changes, and new additions to help the servers deal with the influx of activity, with minimal lag and no downtime that I've witnessed so far.

As for the LJ RP community in general, several games are either already in the process of moving, or have the majority vote to do so. (14 20 confirmed, 20 more likely to.)

KingdomDressing is likely moving to Dreamwidth. Will you follow, or stay on LJ?

Yes, I will follow to DW.

Poll's closed, kids. We left it open for over two weeks, so I hope you got your vote in. The merge of settings was the winner by majority. Now, the setting won't actually change until January 1st. That way all your characters can have an outdoor, open air Christmas for a change.

We're planning for it to be the first of several changes to (hopefully) boost activity and draw in new characters. The start of the new year seems like a good time for that, right?

Be prepared for at least four spell events between now and Christmas! (Including the return of the ever-convenient mistletoe.)

Um. Hi. I'm Ana, and I'm... Semi-new to this place. Would have posted here earlier, but I had to go to bed. /Cough/ Some of you may recognize predatorheart, or Savio--Ienzo's Heartless. I had him here awhile back, and will proooobably bring him again once I fix icons and stuff with him. But that's not what I'm here to talk about!

...Um. Yeah. H-Hi. Iiiii have brought a character many of you may recognize. That is, Sora's Heartless from Coded/RE: Coded. You know, that crafty and conniving little Heartless that gains its own life inside a data version of the worlds, nearly beats down a certain protagonist and then nearly erased the entire Jiminy's Journal in an attempt to escape to the outside world.

I bring him from after he was beaten by Mickey and Data-Sora, and I also changed his speech quirk since all caps get annoying. If you don't want to be tagged with him, or would prefer normal text to him speaking in all Italics, then just drop me a line.

...Um, yeah. That's... About it... Going to go. |D;

Hey, DR-goers! Does anyone even watch this thing? Just kidding, we're not dead yet. I won't stand for it! It's poll time! Activity in the DR has been a steady decline this year. One reason that's been suggested is the recent setting changed that happened earlier this year. While it's certainly larger and less plain than our original endless hallways, some people think it might be too big. With everything within grasp in the residential area, the DR district, with the houses and apartments and everything else... Not everyone has reason to leave that area. Not everyone is going to go places outside of it, either. Some characters don't have any desire to go anywhere else.

So, it's poll time. Here's my suggestion: merge the DR. Merging the two settings would revert us back to where we were before... sort of. If we merged layouts, we would go back to endless hallways and doors. Everyone would be closer together, and it would be harder to avoid people like before. However, the DR would remain fairly open. There would be no ceilings (though people couldn't magically hop walls to get into other rooms... most of the time), the hallways would be varied between normal halls, grass, stone, and such. We would still have seasonal changes and weather that would affect the halls and everywhere else outside of rooms. Like always, you could pick specifically whether or not your character's area would be affected.

Here is the poll. Please read the above before you vote.

This poll is closed.

What kind of setting should the DR have?

Merge it. I like both.
9(52.9%)
The current setting. I like it how it is.
7(41.2%)
The original setting. The endless hallways.
1(5.9%)
None of these! I'm going to suggest it in the comments!
0(0.0%)


REMEMBER. This isn't the be all end all of the DR's layout. It can still change in the future, and there are still other things to work out if we do settle on one of them, so please don't feel like I'm discounting anyone's ideas or opinions!

That said, we also toying with the idea of accepting new mods to help spruce some life back into the place. (Not that our current mods aren't lovely, but one of them is currently unable to put the required effort into the place, and some fresh ideas would be much appreciated!) Please comment here if you are interested.

This is also important! Here I have an anonymous comment bringing up a very big and very unfortunate issue with our DR in terms of activity regarding new characters and new posts. I would like you guys to read it. On this post feel free to agree, disagree, post solutions and other problems you see fit. I want to fix this.

ATTENTION: Please only vote once! Your mods are familiar with a lot of KH roleplayers across LJ. Non-DR players are welcome to vote, but chances are we will recognize your accounts! Your vote will only be counted once.

I will not have internets for several days, as I will be away from home.

Hiatus notice for anyone that isn't in chat regularly.

I will catch up on tags when I get back. <3

Okay guys, it's event time!! Starting this Saturday, we're going to have a week long event. It's more of a 'will affect clothes and the general design of the DR' type of spell, but how much it affects your character and their surroundings is up to you. <3 Consider it something of a spirit week! Each day will represent a different time period with notable fashion and particular attitude.

Here's your lineup!Collapse )

THE MURDER MEME
Who knows where your character is? Walking down the street, stepping out of the shower, just waking up... It doesn't matter. They will quickly find that nearby is something that shouldn't be there. An array of weapons, neatly spread out across a crimson cloth. They could just ignore them, but one in particular catches their eye. It compels them to pick it up.

Depending on the weapon they pick up, they'll have the sudden desire to murder the next person they see. The weapon directly relates to the motive, and once it's obtained the others are completely forgotten.


➢ Pick a number between one and ten, or use the convenient random.org and match your number in the list below.
➢ Post a comment with your character and their weapon or motive.
➢ Other characters comment, either unaffected or with murderous intentions of their own! Good times!
➢ Thread and enjoy!

Pick your poison.Collapse )

WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE MEME
Roll a six sided dice, or open up one of those handy dandy random number generators, this will be the first number of the bounty on your characters head.
Roll the dice or generate your random numbers twice more and add those two numbers together, this will be the number of zeros on that bounty.
Make up a reason for your character's ridiculous bounty be it serious, silly or entirely arbitrary for amusement purposes and post.
Entirely optionally, make a wanted poster for your character with your own two hands or a handy dandy pre-made template through the magic of photoshop or mspaint.

Reply to other to make fun of their bounties, "claim" their bounties, or run off into the sunset together as outlaws. Whatever sentimental sorts do these days when they aren't earning ridiculous bounties on their heads.
