Okay. So. For those of you reading this, you're probably all thinking the same thing or just derping around the forum. How are we going to handle everyone's favorite children's card game? Well, you know what. I'm just as clueless as you. There are pros and cons to this. The cons are that we don't really have much of a foundation for all of this. Pros are that you guys are on the same level as your admin and basically get as much say as her and the other staffers in this particular thread. So what is this thread for, anyway, you might be wondering? If Leap isn't here to tell us how it's being handled, why the heck is she here in the first place? Simple! We're going to find a way to compromise as best we can so we can make everyone as happy as possible. Ready? Here's how this is going to work.
Submit your ideas! We want as many ideas as how to handle this as possible. Whether duels be written out in roleplay or held online and assumed to affect how things go on in the actual roleplay. How duels are actually handled. Just how much they effect the site here. We're open to anything you have. You may submit as many as you want, really, for variety's sake. Something you might not think would entirely work might actually be the best option to go with in the end, so anything that graces your mind can be posted.
Next, we'll discuss our opinions on submitted ideas. What we like about other's ideas. What we don't like about other people's ideas. Why we think certain ones would work and why others wouldn't. What can be modified in a certain idea to make it even better or even just worth while. We'll narrow down options, casting out ones that we all agree won't work and working to make the rest even better until we can take it down to a vote.
Things to keep in mind. One. It's a real person on the other side of that computer screen. Don't be overly harsh to them about ideas of their's that you might not like. Constructive critism is nice, not bashin on another person and whatever their mind comes up with. Two. Duels will be entirely optional until further notice. While we, of course, will not by any means discourage it, I, myself, do not believe that it should be necessary. There may be people coming here for the actual roleplaying rather than the duelling. Perhaps they are much like myself in the sense that they are new to the series or recently returning to the fandom and are rather rusty on the rules and such. This is also geared more towards Season 0, meaning that, while the card game is rather popular, things do not revolve around it as in the second series anime. So. Again. If someone doesn't want their character to duel anyone. They don't have to. Three. In case things come to duels on another site such as Dueling Network, do not let that become the main focus of things and I'm Still Standing become just a meet up. That's not why it was created and I pray that that's not what it becomes. Always remember that that system would be used as an extension rather than the main premise. Fourth. The AU clause may be pulled at any time as long as it is within reason. If you want to take a completely original and unique approach, be my guest. We're all ears.
With being said, fire away! Let your words be heard and your ideas be revealed so that you can have a say in how things are run around here!
