Topic: Site Description

It might be a good idea to create a site description for adding to link lists.

Re: Site Description

Maybe my brain is fried, but I'm not sure what you mean - could you explain a little further?

Re: Site Description

Basically, a sort of paragraph long description of who we are and what we do. Like the ones here.

You get directories of RPing/gaming sites that you can add your own to and it would be good to have a description which we can put in when we add Phoenix Roleplaying to it.

Re: Site Description

Robert, could we use the wording we already put up on Simming League, Roleplay Market, etc? I.e.:

"We are a play-by-post site hosting many simulations including, Firefly, Stargate, Star Trek, Star Wars, Middle Earth, The Witcher, Wheel of Time (coming soon!), Mass Effect, Farscape, Warhammer 40k and others! Come check us out and join a sim!"

Re: Site Description

Sorry, I lost this post, thanks for finding it for me Ash! I agree we could use an existing one, does that work for you Silent or do you have different thoughts here?

Re: Site Description

That works for me; it might need some minor tweaking, but I'll let you do that.

Re: Site Description

I have added us to The Portal - take a look, let me know what you think, we can make tweaks if needed.

Re: Site Description

Looks good.

With our Site Description designed and in use, shall we close this thread?

Re: Site Description

Sure, although I need to reactivate my account apparently to switch the site back to this one.

Re: Site Description

Understood.

Once you're sufficiently on top of things, do you think you and Silent could together proactively resume seeking out potential link partners and networking with them and reporting on your work here, that is if you aren't already?

Re: Site Description

Yes, we can do that - I'm a bit busy ATM, but I'll try and get some stuff done.

Re: Site Description

That's alright. I think it's sensible that our focus be internal, getting things back up to speed, but once you're comfortable and can spare time for ads and alliances, that'd be grand.

Re: Site Description

Thanks Ash, I will try to get on this in the near future!

Re: Site Description

Can we get a copy of our official Site Description posted in a closed, stickied thread in this forum? Silent or Robert, could you do this?

And we could leave this thread open for a bit for comments/suggestions improving the official version once it's posted.

Re: Site Description

Since we already have a thread called Site Description I don't think it would be particularly advantageous to open a new thread for the same thing (just adds more clutter, no?). I just stickied this one so now it's at the top.

I had one going but I think Silent expanded upon it? I'll post the one I have...

Re: Site Description

I may have done, but that's a good baseline description.

Fair enough. And great description. :-)

Re: Site Description

Was thinking this should be updated.... Maybe toss in a listing of some of our sims (common and original), and whatnot. And take out the Simming League thingy, possible replacing it with Roleplay Wikia if folks wanted.

Re: Site Description

The link should be updated to RP wikia for sure, although it currently forwards there. I don't think we should list any specific sims for a few reasons:
1. Sims are constantly in flux in terms of activity and open/close state. Changes require constant updating.
2. Determining # of sims and which can be a political headache, and it would be impossible to include every sim and thus avoid potential stepping on toes.

Edit: I'll update Robert's post to change the link.

Another edit: FYI, the "Portal" link Robert originally submitted this to was on simming league, now on RP wiki and already has what you suggested, Misty.

Re: Site Description

Thanks for the edit!

Re: Site Description

Ok, maybe not a mention of the sims we have, but what about the areas/genres? To me, it is rather boring and nothing there to entice a potential guest.

Re: Site Description

I don't think anyone would mind if you had something to spice it up. What's your proposal?
