Using the Secondary Channel #BDI*Outside

Post by Nymphetamine » Mon Aug 15, 2016 9:42 pm

The main channel has been very active lately. Sometimes the scroll is hard to follow. We have a secondary channel, #BDI*Outside already created and available for scenes outside of the inn. It used to be open and people would add it to their auto join but it was closed when our numbers started to fall.

I propose that we reopen it, given the number of active players we have these days.

Yes please. If a group of people are having some sort of party outside or in town, then they should have a separate room for it, for less confusion.

No, separating all city/non-inn RP to a secondary channel would ultimately kill the city RP and send the channel even further down the path to only sitting in an inn, drinking and small-talking. More channels that you have to join won't help organize things - it'll isolate and starve the non-inn RP, which we have been cultivating and enjoying.

In the past, BDI*Outside has always become neglected, and died. If all non-inn RP is forced into there, there will be activity for a few weeks, but then it will die, and we will be reduced to sitting around and sitting drinks.

The current system, where BDI*Outside is opened when the scroll is too big, does seem to work.

Yeah, there's nothing mandatory about using #BDI*Outside. Just as a place for overflow when the Inn channel is getting busy, with a focus on non-Inn stuff in the other channel.
