I am monitoring this thread.

Excellent idea.

I don't know the system either, but my feedback for THIS POST is that it's far too short. If you were applying to my game, I would not bother with you. It looks like it's a 2-minute background. Who is the person? What does he love? Hate? What drives him? What are his goals?

Also Plum..why not have each App that wants a review start a thread? No?

I agree with the others that each app in its own thread is the way to go. Much cleaner and the apps won't get lost as easy. I'm assuming you're wanting them all in the one thread because that is how the character workshop thread is setup, but really, we have an entire board here, let's make use of the space.

As to Adam Stirling, like others have said, the application is short and cookie cutter. If he's going to have that kind of drinking problem and you want him to gain any empathy what so ever, you're going to have to explain his drinking, and "he saw bad stuff" doesn't cut it. I think if you start there and really get in depth you might find something to surprise you.

I have no problems with each thread having its own thread. I was afraid of a cluttered folder by the character workshop has lots of threads so it can't be TOO bad...

A cluttered folder is a used folder.

Moved my character to a separate thread, so newcomers have a template to start with. Now, some feedback to you guys, since this is a relatively new experience. First, Plum, great advice, it really gave me somewhere to go with it. Second, I've received several comments that it is too short.That is why it's here, and I'm sure most people can tell at a glance that it's barely started. In order not to alienate the yellows, I suggest that instead of bluntly stating that it is too short, give some suggestions as to what you would like to see from the character. All in all, I think we're off to a great start

Procedure question: I would like to solicit feedback/help on an application of mine. Should I post the relevant information here or in an individual thread? Other than a link to the advertisement and a copy of my current application, what other information should be provided?

@ Moozuba

We have decided individual threads would be best. Just copy and paste your application as well as link to the game you are applying for.


As for other information just give us a few pointers on what you really need help with, your background your character build? perhaps your concept as a whole?

or if you'd like just post it up and Myself and others will unleash a deluge of thoughts and comments.

We should probably see about getting this thread to be sticky, if it contains all the "how this works".

I would make another one, with all the things we discussed in a few posts. Then sticky that one

It might help if people put the System in the title...
