Gothic Posted May 4 Share Posted May 4 Hello AeRos, I know we are behind with updates and progress about several things concerning the site. I apologise for these. At the moment we are currently at a crossroads with the community and I would like your feedback. AeRo has a long, extensive and involved IC history that spans well over a decade. It is a testament to the writing abilities and interest of our community. However, it can make it difficult to go back and get into things again. A proposal that was brought up was essentially a reboot. What kind of reboot is still to be determined although we were wanting to see what you thought. I understand this measure is drastic, given the state of the site and utter difficulty I've had getting back into things. I hope you can understand why this idea has been brought forward. No post or thread will be removed and anything from this current version of aero is welcome to be played out on the AU board. Our choices are either; a reboot to make things easier to manage and to understand. Or for AeRo to become freeform, allowing members to do what they want in a Rome setting, and it also offers the potential for mini rome worlds. E.g. A separate one for the late roman empire, etc. I'm interested to see how people would see how this could potentially work. My personal involvement with the site has waned. I don't see myself RPing anytime soon and for those who have been waiting for me to post. I apologise deeply for keeping you waiting. I hoped that the muse would come back, however, I feel that part of my life has come to a close. I will be able to keep an eye on AeRo and the site. I will also not be transferring ownership of AeRo in any shape or form. What I would like from the members is input on either of the two ideas. Thank you for listening, AeRos. Added: Okies, I will update the post too, A reboot would be more along the line of a new plot and in a way, with less of the history that AeRo currently has. In a way, it would be more like a fresh start. I'm trying to avoid time jumps because it tends to mean more work ultimately to think and write what happened in that time. People would be able to keep characters/plots going, I imagine so long as they fit in with the rebooted plot. They may need to go through the app process again. I'm still feeling out ideas and thoughts at the moment in that regard. Sandbox/free-form could be either 1x1 plots. And there could be overarching plots that occur too. E.g. Say if people want this version, it would be it's own. Or if say they wanted a republic or late empire section. Each would have it's own and it would likely be managed. I'm still feeling out this option to see how much interest there would be. Maybe think of it like a mini rpg and AeRo (the board) in a way becomes the host. These are still very broad ideas about the possibilities with it and thank you for asking for clarification too. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
