Oh what's this? This is a new account. Yeah, I'll get to that in a moment. We have modly business to attend to.
First and foremost, we APOLOGIZE for being some slacker mods. But we're getting our asses in gear and making things work. The RP was intended to be slow to begin with, it's not plot-based, and it's a more slice-of-life style RP. That's okay.
Anyways. Some quick updates:
♥ The Taken Character list
and Add/Drop list
has been updated as of this morning. Please PLEASE
be sure to go to update your friend's list.
Also, to clarify, our Shikamaru-mun dropped voluntarily. She announced it to the mods, but since we were derping out with exams we never got to make a formal announcement about it. So please remove kage_heiryaku from your friend's list if you haven't done so already. Otherwise you'll be getting posts from another RP that won't make sense and he won't know who the heck you are if you comment. We apologize for the delay on this announcement.
This brings up another PLEASE PLEASE
point: if you are dropping or going on hiatus, please announce it through the main community (streetscape_rp
). Tags are being updated to accommodate this.(edit// tags 'player notice, hiatus, character drop' added)
♥ Activity check. Okay, so it may be a little too early for this, but we're thinking of holding one sometime in June. We're still talking it over and deciding on when and how it will work. But, to be safe, it is recommended that you have AT LEAST one entry posted in your journal so far. Most of you guys meet that condition, but we just want to make sure. Also, that does not mean "oh hey I guess I have one entry I don't need to worry." This means "okay I have one entry but I better keep posting because I don't know when the hell this check is.
♥ Aside from our Akatsuki Discussion post
, we now have an Event Suggestion Thread
. Yeah that's right. We're kicking things up a notch, and this should have been posted from the beginning. It's a slice-of-life RP and HELLO events do happen in day-to-day life. We're workin on it. SO please~ any ideas are welcome~
Now. Onto this crazy new account (that is on the add list, so add it).
What is it exactly? This is an NPC account played and used by the mods to announce these events. The announcement IC, will either be in the form of a television broadcast or a radio broadcast. Note that, your character is perfectly applicable to work in the stations, but the mods will hold control over the main guys making the announcements.
♥ Konoha News Station. The television program is like any normal news program. There's local news, weather, and other normal news broadcast subjects (puppies for sale at the shelter). The main reporter is misc NPC ninja guy #34. Give him a name if you like, but he won't ever appear in the game besides to say 'hi' on the news channel. You can make up whatever you want to be announced on the news because you wont be hearing from the tv side of this account much besides for event announcements.
♥ Konoha Radio Station. This is a 24 hour music station again run by misc NPC ninja guy #69, but sometimes he'll interrupt the music to bring you newsflashes (aka moar events). This will be handy if there is, say.... a power outage of some sort. There are battery-powered radios, ya know.
Another thing we were thinking of was opening it up for IC use. Say Naruto wants to dedicate a song
to Sakura (idk just an example mang, sorry) he can do it via this account. We'll make a post elaborating on that later on though. A few things at a time now.
And finally, the last tidbit of this post: events
We thought of a couple things for events, but we still want you to post at the suggestion thread
. Also maybe help us elaborate on the two we've come up with:
♥ Konoha power down (you knew that power outage idea was coming back somewhere. c'mon). Hello Konoha citizens, it's really damn hot. You know what would be worse on hot summer days like this? If the power didn't work. No AC. Oh man that would be hell. You guys would have to cope somehow. Better think of a way now because, for some odd reason power seems to have stopped working in a chunk of Konoha. God knows why, but it happened and now it's hot as hell. Find some way to cope. Get out of the house/work, and do something. Maybe Konoha's like Miami. A big frickin' city, but right near close to the beach (this makes me think we need a map now). Go for it. Fuck, find a pool. Ransack Sasuke's bar and turn it into an ice-zone with one of those snow machines or something (battery/generator powered of course). It's up to you if your characters job lets them off early or if they have a generator on hand, but this will probably only last a day. It will be announced over the radio, but there will be another OOC post with an official date.
♥ Konoha Summer Festival. This is the one we'd like to hear your opinions on. Themes maybe? Events within the events??? We're clearing the streets for the day so shops can set up, and run at night. You can bust watermelons or run around in kimonos... orrr whatever. We're obviously still working on this one. But we have a basic idea.
So that's it.
Tl;Dr: ummmm, mods are cool, update your flist, new account, and hay events are pretty cool too.
I believe that the lot of us are out for summer now, yes? Well then. Have a great summer, streetscape, and here's to getting the ball rolling again ♥
