    Early in this forum's history I posted often. Not all nonsense either. Maybe 50%. But a large motivation of posting was to stay on top and gain ranks/levels. I quickly learned that those who were running games in the PBP campaign section would beat me out regardless of how many posts I could generate. So it became useless to even bother.

    I think the PBP section, like the blog section, shouldn't factor into the number of Posts that are recorded nor be involved in ranking or gaining levels.

    I disagree. PBP games and blogging contribute to overall site activity and the health of the community and I think that should be rewarded.

    Of course, I also think that we oughta have a writing section/forum, too, so those of us who write can show off their work

    I agree with the writing section and completely disagree with PBP not getting experience. Not only is it a blueprint for other people who want to play in that format, but it also is more relevant than any other post on the site! If I'm not mistaken, this site was created mainly to help gamers find games and to give people another venue to play them.

    My vote goes to both the writing section and the pbp section for getting experience.

    I don't give a toss over how many levels I have here I post because I like to post. If someone has more levels big whoop I gave up on petty matters like that when I turned 18 many, many, oh god many moons ago.

    That's 3 votes for a writer's forum . Methinks someone should start up a social group for writers. They can have attached forums, y'see ...

    Edit: Nevermind, they have a limited number of categories. Local group, gaming group and Play by Post. Needs to have a "general" category, mayhaps.

    I'd join a social group for writers. Never been in one here before.

    Anybody here that wants to join can join my writing group. I'll send out invites.
    Panthro...you are explicitly UNinvited. Spy!
    --- Merged from Double Post ---
    The group I host is for DMs and writers. Nobody who isn't in the group can read the posts. That way, you can discuss your on-going adventures and campaigns without fear of a snooping player (Panthro) reading what's going on.

    What are the rules/guidelines for posting? Is it just for adventure writing (as the title suggests) or can we post fiction, too? Is there a PG-13 rating cap or, since it is moderated and access is invite only, can we get a little racier?

    If the group is limited to adventure writing (just D&D or other games, too?), can we create another group for other kinds of writing?

    I think I will do that, actually. I think DM_Running_Farland_3.5 has something great going, but it sort of spoils it if players can see what the GMs are doing. I'll post a link here when I get it up and running.

    Edit: here's the link http://www.penandpapergames.com/foru...hp?groupid=137
    Please let me know if non-members can see this forum? I'm still trying to work out the kinks. Ideally I'd like non-members to be able to see the posts but not respond. This way posts can be regulated.

    You can post whatever you want. Writers of fiction, adventures or campaigns are welcome.

    As for the PG-13 cap. I know that unless it is out and out offensive, I will not delete it.

    You can't read anything unless you join. The players are not invited, yo.
