  • Brenna: Hey, Arcadians! I started a community on plug.dj for us. Think of it as a chatroom with a jukebox we can all take turns using. Whip up an account and let me know your account name (it's a private room).

  • Edgewise: ;_; Thank you, very much.

  • Alyss: I hope not!

  • Edgewise: ...Please tell me this rpg hasn't been abandoned for the second time in six years. Please.

  • Edgewise: Omg stay warm, everybody!  ;__;
    November 19, 2014, 01:00:04 PM
  • Ingrid: Maybe when they were kids XD
    October 19, 2014, 12:15:33 PM
  • Alyss: Phoebe wouldn't want Vaness to feel bad either, though, or dress up as something she really, really would rather not wear. Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty have pretty dresses, so she'd be perfectly happy going as one of them. ^_^ (And the puppy dog eyes may end up on Roi to go as Flynn. XD)
    October 17, 2014, 01:04:57 PM
  • Alyss: She does - complete with a little bottom lip wibble. ^^;
    October 17, 2014, 12:59:37 PM
  • Ingrid: I bet Phoebe has the best puppy eyes
    October 17, 2014, 10:40:58 AM
  • Ingrid: Oh no ;_; Now Vaness feels bad
    October 17, 2014, 10:40:49 AM
  • Alyss: Phoebe would probably go as Rapunzel or Sleeping Beauty since they are both "hidden" princesses like her. (But only because Vaness probably won't go as Elsa to her Anna. XD)
    October 17, 2014, 10:35:10 AM
  • Brenna: Phia will dress as a butterfly, because its the last thing anyone will see coming out of the world's biggest tomboy.
    October 14, 2014, 10:54:38 PM
  • Brenna: Doc Lamya would go as the Ghost of Breakfasts Yet To Come, with a bacon and eggs print shroud.
    October 14, 2014, 10:53:31 PM
  • Ru: That is so awesome.  :D
    October 14, 2014, 06:06:48 PM
  • Pixie: Kivan would go as Liberace XD
    October 14, 2014, 05:50:22 AM
  • Ru: Kit I think might be a total geek and dress up as some historical figure her dad taught her about.  And then be a little confused that no one knows who she is.
    October 13, 2014, 06:52:34 PM
  • Ru: Hmm, I think Seren might go as a zombie, just to confuse the hell out of people.  She'd play it totally straight, and people would STILL find her attractive.
    October 13, 2014, 06:50:57 PM
  • Ingrid: Vaness goes as Flame Princess because of all the Elsa jokes
    October 13, 2014, 01:51:42 PM
  • Pixie: Pwyll would perversely go as his sister XD
    October 13, 2014, 07:05:13 AM
  • Brenna: Autumn Question Times! Cast Masquerade/Trick or Treating! What/Who/When is your character going as?
    October 11, 2014, 08:50:34 AM
  • Ru: Excellent, okay!  <3
    October 06, 2014, 06:36:01 PM
  • Brenna: Triso probably did. Seraita wasn't strong enough to swim, so she mostly waded.
    October 01, 2014, 01:59:40 PM
  • Ru: HEY so just a little question - for those of you with Lost Kids, do your kids know how to swim?
    September 25, 2014, 06:10:07 PM
  • Ingrid: Thank you <3
    September 23, 2014, 09:33:18 AM
  • Edgewise: More. Draw moarr

    September 20, 2014, 07:30:31 PM
  • Brenna: Oh, how luscious!
    September 17, 2014, 04:28:14 PM
  • Alyss: Please do! :)
    September 15, 2014, 01:47:31 PM
  • Ingrid: Okay, mind if I improvise?
    September 15, 2014, 01:46:04 PM
  • Alyss: And I've been trying to find a good flower for Phoebe. I've come up with a few (white rose, lily of the valley, magnolia, etc), but haven't settled on one yet.
    September 15, 2014, 01:02:17 PM
  • Alyss: Pretty! :)
    September 15, 2014, 01:00:15 PM
  • Ingrid: I redrew Daki because reasons

    September 15, 2014, 11:57:55 AM
  • Ingrid: Does Phoebe have a specific symbolic flower?
    September 15, 2014, 10:50:03 AM
  • Ingrid: Thank you :D
    September 14, 2014, 08:07:45 PM
  • Alyss: Yay for Ingrid arts! <3 They are awesome! ^^ <3
    September 14, 2014, 05:14:20 PM
  • Ingrid: Thank you <333
    September 14, 2014, 08:41:51 AM
  • Pixie: OMG those are awesome! <3
    September 14, 2014, 06:07:41 AM
  • Ru: And Daki is all sorts of gorgeous, and I love her hidey bangs.

Welcome to SUBACCOUNTS
« on: October 06, 2013, 12:08:58 AM »
WHAT IS THIS MADNESS?

Kol and I worked on installing Subaccount mods to the forum today, and I would say they are successful enough that we could start using them in posts :D   As you can see here.

We will be using subaccounts so that when you post as your character, you can be in a profile specifically for that character.  This makes identifying the characters in a given story much easier, and having an icon specific to that character while posting is just cooler.   You should use this subaccount when posting in logs/stories, and you can choose to use either your player account or your character account for posting in general forums. 


What works:
1) Creating new subaccount.   

Go to Profile -> Summary -> Modify Profile -> Manage Subaccounts.  Click on "Create/Link" to make a new subaccount.  In the "Choose Account" field, type in the most common civilian name for your character.  If they are most likely to go by an alias, like Roimata Liron, then that should be the profile name.  This isn't a perfect rule - for example, it might make more sense for Phoebe's account to go by her given name.

2) Posting in a subaccount profile.  When you reply or start a new topic, you will see that "Use Account" is now a dropdown.  You can choose between your player account or any of the subaccounts you made.


What doesn't work (yet):
1) I dun goofed on how the profiles look when you post - you can see they have bullets and they shouldn't.  So that will be fixed, somehow. 

2) Changing subaccounts on the forum.  Usually there is a drop-down menu that lets you toggle between accounts so that you can post in the shoutbox as different chars, but that isn't working yet. 


Some notes:
1) PBs are still not mandatory!  However, the icon you choose for your subaccount should have something to do with your character.  For example, until I find a face that looks halfway like Roimata's, he gets a dinky clock (for his Time sphere).

2) We might or might not switch to a system like Silvermoon/Perfect World where the application is also the filled-out profile.  I'm not sure how I feel about this yet, and happy to have dialogue about it.  (Example: http://silvermoon.seiryuu.org/index.php?action=profile;u=448

And I'm going to keep tinkering with the subaccounts tonight as well, so be warned if you are like me and browsing at 3am. ^.^;;

So things are still weird!  But we now have the "Switch Accounts" box above our shoutbox!  Yay!  Fixes to the layout and the profile are to come :D
