Anonymous asked:why are you waiting four more hours to accept Sam when you've already got two auditions?
Because Sam is a very important part of the role play and is involved in two of the major plot lines within the role play; we want to make sure we have the best possible Sam to take on the role. The two auditions we have are great but we want to be able to have a selection to pick from to make sure we have the best.
Yes we chose to end the past group and start up this smaller one with some of the players from the last but that is no reflection on us playing favourites. We all discussed it, decided what endgames we wanted to keep, and chose sixteen kids and then the people who played them in the other were brought over. It was made so there was a minimum of 4 teenagers per family, and no more than 5. We only put in four families, and no, we will not be adding anytime soon because small groups work so much better.
Everyone is talking to everyone. Nobody is getting ignored. Everyone is getting on and that’s that. Everyone has their endgame that they are happy with and I’m sorry if you liked your character, but you can very easily slip that character into another group.
So, before you keep sending bitchy anon messages - all of which I am just deleting, by the way because I’m not going to fight with you - think about how difficult it was for the four of us to keep tabs on 60 character’s, and check everyone was sticking to their bio’s, and nobody was causing ooc drama. It was difficult, and we decided we couldn’t do it anymore. We chose our favorite FC’s, stuck them in our four favorite families and that was that. There is no need to take it seriously enough to keep sending us messages, and then keep sending me messages on my RP account.
So please, stop.
Anonymous asked:are there endgames?
Basically, the four admins were discussing last night some issues we were having with the previous group. And admin two came up with the idea of a smaller group, so we could focus more on bio’s and storylines, and other things. So, we took that idea and we made it happen because, having a group with 24 character’s, is a lot easier for everyone than a group with 62 character’s.
This way, everyone can get to know each other, the dash won’t move too fast and nobody will be ignored either out of character, or in character. The people we asked to come with us, are those we feel are the best roleplayers for their parts, and for the storylines we use. That’s not to say anyone else was bad roleplayers, because there were some people I would have loved to bring here but thanks to their cliques, I couldn’t. Nobody in the other group was a bad roleplayer, we just felt as though not everyone wanted to interact with everyone and not many people were putting in the effort to do so. We chose twenty four characters, and four families and then decided who we wanted in those families.
We really hope that now, as a smaller group, plots will work a lot better and nobody will feel ignored, or left out.
Anonymous asked:does the smythe-anderson kids have any names?
They are listed in the Masterlist.
Q: Can I change ______’s FC to someone else?
A: Unless it is noted next to the character in the master list, no. All FC’s are in place so they can be paired with other specific characters.
Q: Can I change ______’s backstory/job/age?
A: Minor changes may be sent to the ask box and we will look them over. If two or more admin approve then your change may be put in place, if not then the chance cannot be made. Huge changes will not be accepted what so ever, nor will a change to a characters age.
Q: I feel ignored, what can I do?
A: If you feel ignored try posting more or sending text messages to other players. We know the dash moves fast sometimes and things get missed so the more you post, the more likely you are to interact with other characters.
Q: I really like my character but I like ______ as well, can I take them on a second character?
A: Unfortunately, no. This tends to create problems if someone is given a second character and another is not.
Q: Will you be making another family / Can I make a ______ sibling / Can I make an OC that is not related to anyone?
A: No, no, and we will make an announcement when further OC’s can be added to the role play. Please don’t ask if you haven’t seen the announcement on the main blog because it will only make us push back when we open them.
