The Future of Flamingo Heights [Mar. 1st, 2008|09:57 pm]
Fandango High School


[Current Mood |hopefulhopeful]

 So as we all know, there has been a lot of chaos and confusion in the roleplay this weekend, and the future of our beloved Florida community is currently in doubt. To clarify for anyone who has not been around, the basics are these:

- On Friday, Jabbers and Naru announced that they were leaving the game and stepping down as mods. Stars and Rae stepped up to replace them and were granted maintainership of the high school. (Maintainership. Is that a word?)

- On Saturday, Mer ended the Flamingo University roleplay when Captain Planet inadvertantly destroyed the University campus. No characters were harmed in the explosion unless their muns want them to be. She has stepped down as mod.

- Several people have used this time of transition as an opportunity to change their involvement in the game by adding, changing, dropping characters or leaving the game entirely. 

Despite all this, a lot of us want the Flamingo Heights tradition to continue in some way, both in the sense of RP and in the sense of the community and friendships we've formed. The chats and the friendships can continue, no problem, but rebuilding the RP will take some work. Work that I'd like everyone's input on. So I'd appreciate it if anyone who's still interested in continuing answered the following questions:

1) If given the choice of continuing to use the existing fandangohigh, flamingo_u and bonapartejrhigh comms with new mods or consolidating to one flamingoheights community, which would you prefer?

2) If given the choice of resetting the game completely or beginning the new game with our current characters' memories of past relationships and events intact, which would you prefer? 

EDIT: Pocky m so smrt, I just realized there's a win-win scenario for question 2. Giving people the OPTION of resetting their characters only if they want to. *facepalm* How's that sound to folks?

Thanks everyone for your input and I'd just like to say that in spite of all that's happened, my relationships with all of you are important to me and I'd like them to continue just as I'd like the game to continue. If I personally have offended any of you during this weekend or earlier, I apologize. This is an emotional time, but if we can all let go of our anger, put the past behind us and look toward the future with some maturity and an open mind, I believe we can make this work. 

...Why do I keep sounding like Relena today?

I think merging them all into one community would be best. That seems a lot easier, and it would open things dramatically in the sense that we could allow people to create new areas, have more job fields, and just in general have more places to go. Like it'd be neat to even create a map--ask everyone what kind of places they'd like to see then create a locations list of it. Broadening our horizons to more than just schools may attract more new people as well.

As for the second, well seems you've already solved that.

*huggles* You've been putting so much work into this, Pocks, you're awesome.

Ha; Tiger and I were talking about how we should have a list of all the locations in Flamingo Heights yesterday. A map might be complicated, but we could at least compile a list of places and things, for future reference.

Awesome :3 But yea, if the end decision is to go with a compiled community that'd be great \o/

It's funny you should mention that, because I have wanted a map of Flamingo Heights for the longest time. ^^;; Now if only there was a way to do to that wouldn't result in me tearing my hair out.

*is huggled* I just don't want to see all of this disappear. This place has been my escape from reality and my new home on the internet. If that makes me awesome...well, thanks. ^^ <3
