I've just about sorted out the issues with my computer (remember folks, backup your data!) so RP should be resuming again soon.

Also, if there's anything you think would help out RP in this forum, feel free to reply here.

character bios in some sort of order. The bios aren't that bad yet, but if more people create them, it'll be a mess.

I agree with TMH on this one its a great addition to the forum but can and will become very cluttered. I'm not sure I have a fix for it thou.

Sub forum by factions? But that leads to the issue of when someone changes factions or resets.

Alphabetical? Need to know if it's by screen name, char last name, or char first name.

If alphabetical, it should be by screen name. Making it alphabetical by character's last name (especially when it's not part of the screen name) is excessively confusing.

A subforum for canon stories so that if a dev determines that something should be part of skyrates lore, they can do so.

I don't think factional subforums would be that bad. It's on the rare side that RPer's change factions, and on the rare occasion they do, Calvin can just switch them over, right?

I know it would be more work for him, but it's not that often it happens, and it's not super pressing either.

Perhas even do what's done on the Skybrary (to some extent) and make it so that when somebody switches Faction, if not only changes under their avatar but it changes which Factional sub-forum they are apart of as well.

...Perhaps a little TOO much work, but it's a thought. :remygrin:

PS: Also what Phedre said is pretty much how it is.

Easy for you to say.
If this suggestion is adopted, let me cast a vote for an automatic/scripted process.

Presuming even thousands of RP info topics, it should be easy to find the one needed with the the forums' search feature. There's a box at the very bottom of the page which searches only that subforum.

It might also be useful to create a list on the wiki, or in a spreadsheet, with a link to each character's bio topic.

Much much easier than scripting anything.
