    until all the fights are done. I'm trying to hurry it up a bit, but IRL stuff plus other stuff on the Internet has kept me fairly busy as of late. I may start the next fight here shortly, depending on whether or not I have approval from the fighters. We'll see.

    I'm sorry 9Kirb' but you have a healing spell and you're currently the only person at the moment that can heal others so I pleade that you don't try to go into beserker again at this time, maybe in the next battle but against an opponent that has crazy defense like this I think supporting the casters istead of cowering behind them might be a wiser tactic. I don't like support duty either but that doesn't mean I'll literaly throw a tantrum about it.

    9kirb, could you perhaps try to heal Nicolas in this turn? You're one of the only people who know Healing Spell right now, Aeront's about to do something else this turn, and I don't know what Gamer's going to do. :<

    So, are you going to skip past Snickerway in the posting order (since luigiguy went out of order, Snickerway's the only one not to have posted), or just wait for him?

    I'd noticed, but I've got homework to do... I'll post as soon as I can.

    ...If you're honestly saying "nice try" as if I'm trying to attack you, the only thing putting me on an Ignore list did was make it official.

    Forget this. No matter how tempting it is, I won't waste any more of my time trying to help you.

    9, ignoring Meta isn't going to change things at all. I understand he was annoying you, but he was only trying to give you a nudge in the right direction. The least you could do is understand what exactly he is trying to tell you.

    When a person stops being active for a long period of time, it should be saying something. When people run really far ahead of the others, it's called /railroading/, a common theme in our old story, and these people know better. Having a set post order isn't a terrible idea, but it isn't a good one either, as it has the possibility of holding everyone back. The RP could even die quicker because one person might post slower than all the others.

    Your modified rules make this a little better, but giving the role players freedom is what really moves it forward. This style you've picked up, people will allow you to see how it goes, but this kind of makes me feel like you don't have a lot of faith in the people you're working with. Not enough faith to trust that they will work together, to know when someone is really getting behind.

    You've been around BitF's RPs and seen the people who worked with them, I'm assuming, as you said you have seen people get caught in the dust, but you can see that the other role players are /trying to get them to post/. And when those people don't post, the role play has the choice to move on without them, be put on hiatus, or die.

    I'm just saying, don't be too harsh on Meta for trying to give you good advice.

    I'm not seeing an argument here. All you're saying is "MY WAY IS BETTER DON'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO ALL OTHER RPS ARE TOTALLY WORSE THAN MINE."

    Two words: Glitz Pit. It basically takes the RPing formula to the opposite extreme with a completely open structure, and it's currently been running for over fourteen months.

    Lucid Living was short because the GM was banned. It had literally nothing to do with your hypothetical "Speedy Gonzales" factor.

    So you're literally going to ignore everything I just said, say "my way is best lol," and call almost every RP on the entire Internet "broken?" Makes so much sense.

    ...You kind of just contradicted yourself. If people don't keep up with the RP, they're not being active. If they're encouraged to be inactive by getting a free three-day reserve in which no one else can post, you're just going to perpetuate inactivity.

    Those... don't really help, and just make the whole system more complicated than it needs to be.

    You seem to have a fear of activity, which most GMs welcome, encourage, and/or desperately wish for. Why?

    I'm still just not seeing it. I'm just warning you that it's a really bad idea to have a posting order as its going to cause the rp. If you don't believe me then just ask someone else who knows a lot about rp's.

    Uh... no? Having a defined order is not in any way "better." I like to take my time and write long posts, but I still get that the RP needs to move along. The way you're doing it, if one person forgets to post, the entire RP could die. This is enough of a problem with most RPs, but adding a required order just compounds the issue. Not to mention: what happens if two characters are interacting, and everyone else is off doing their own thing? Are you telling me that they have to "wait their turn" to make a post that takes about a second in the RP, even while everyone else is progressing at a much faster rate?
