Let me do this in list form so we can agree and disagree on certain parts with better pointers:

Are the line breaks intentional? WikiDot implements automatic line-wrapping (like basically every software developed after the 80s) and the insertion of line feeds/carriage return is only required when starting new paragraphs. On displays with a different width than the authors, this looks very uneven.

*sweeps the half-arsed attempt of the CSS policy under a rug*

Considering that the new CSU account may also be gone any moment soon, just some context for future reference:

This is funny, last time I checked Discord, Datura was in the process of getting us an RP channel there. Naturally, all our RP-related rules should prefixed with "barring the designated RP channels/threads".

Now, defining role-playing (isn't all social interaction just putting up a facade, because deep down we all feel like frail impostors unworthy of affection?) is as mentioned before in this thread not easy to get right. Substitutes for gestural/facial expression (vis supra) should be allowed, even though they technically involve you playing a role (I doubt you actually dropped a spoon there, Meta). And if you squint really hard, both our Mission Statement and the "slice of life" stuff I write under people's intro threads are RPing in a sense.

I think the problem is more with people actually pretending the in-universe Insurgency to be real. I doubt they actually believe it themselves, because accepting that an organization with as dire modus operandi as ours has an public web appearance like that with (with easily discernible operations as a creative fiction site at that) without being busted down by LEAs requires truly impressive mental gymnastics. I.e. if you in all seriousness believe the Insurgency to be real, I recommended psychological attention ASAP.
No, this is from people who either don't know when a joke becomes hazardous or children and adolescents who still haven't reached the ability to properly set boundaries to what is real and what not. (An ability that is woefully disconnected from age and more correlated with how much reality has slapped you into the the face yet.) Drawing comparisons to stuff like Momo, the Blue Whale Challenge and the public announcement that entire "You do not recognize the bodies in the water"-craze actually concerning parents, this is probably a healthy part of child development, just like Siren Head or, back in our days, Mr. Widemouth and Herobrine were. (Eeeks, this better not turn into an essay.)
However, these people are dangers to themselves and others, as the Slenderman Stabbing demonstrated, and I recommend delivering everyone that reality slap to the face when in need for it. Better we remove them from this place before they get worked up on fiction and stain our reputation or way worse.

Give people a warning shot, but after that, I recommend protective&corrective bans at staff discretion. Only let them back in once they have demonstrated to understand why what they did is dumb and frowned upon. This works equally well for trolls and people in need of guidance.

That should cover most of the RPing encountered around here (at least until people start playing Shadow Run campaigns in the comments — please don't do that). We should see how we can make the Wiki more obvious and undeniable fictional in the meantime; perhaps editing our site's description on WikiDot to read "collaborative fiction project" or something like that.

Also, this is directed at you, Meta: I don't like bringing topics from PMs into the forum, but I recall you being proud in your "walking the edge" approach. I consider that withholding people their prescribed reality slaps and only reinforcing children in their delusions. I beg you to stop.

BTW, I wrote this one in a hurry; it'll be subjected to some refining somewhen soon.

Yeah I was thinking so. I’m not sure but I still truly feel this had styling to it? Oh well. This site needs to get refurbished very very soon.

Ah yes by Union-ZeroUnion-Zero, 15 Jan 2023 23:37

Ready to resume.

Do we want to hammer roll-playing out now since there is once again (this time it is not me), discussion around that particular part of legislation.

Re: Rules by Meta WonderratMeta Wonderrat, 15 Jan 2023 19:48

I have been chosen to enact such a project and yes, what message I will send them is the message you have stated above. I have read what this Internal Outreach project is about and now I wish we went back to the days when the water on table was still. It’s my thing to recruit others by it be in my Union or someone else’s. For now since we too need to grow, our recruitments will be held aside. The insurgency is our leader, for now. Until further notice this project is going to be executed for a long term process. Of course there’s a lot of people inactive, that’s why copy & paste is a thing. I will take the main message that you, meta, wanted posted to others and I will add a hint to it. So that our personnel get intrigued.

May it be successful and, if the original idea of getting others into our site is reconsidered, please tell me. I would love to be a part of that too (it’s my thing).

Good day chaps.

The page source has not been touched since 2016, so you might mistake this page for another one? Maybe this one?

Re: Is just me? by Meta WonderratMeta Wonderrat, 15 Jan 2023 12:22

There were many parts of the page that was missing. ie: the security officers - administrative command executives etc. I added to them so check is they fit the role and criteria.

Didn’t there used to be a picture on this page? Wasn’t there more css styling?

Is just me? by Union-ZeroUnion-Zero, 14 Jan 2023 22:05

Choose wisely, the clock ticks with silence. Only a matter of hours before one man will tell of this “incident”, another will exaggerate what has been said for their own leverage. Soon the deafening silence will take you, will you let the “kid(s)” break it or will you tear it? We wait, only for those who understand.

Here are some pictures for you to consider.

Also what did I tell you about size and format? You used PNG and 1350*679. The image displayed on the site needs only 666*335. Please take the image down open it in your paint program of choice, select "save as" and than choose ".jpg". I believe that step alone should make the image a lot smaller (file size).

Also, nice picture and congratulations on your first "picture in article".

Re: Any Thoughts? by Meta WonderratMeta Wonderrat, 14 Jan 2023 19:01

Behind what none can see, a man lies in wait to send another to the depths of horror. Life is is something, something only the faithful human will see. Choose wisely, stand behind the photons of light or take those photons and make it your own. Only, never, if, why? Think, for what you are, not what you can. The world waits your appointment, take it, fight for it. Prestige and respect is what keeps them silent at night. Only the true men have what other envy, reality.

If you are online now we could chat over mibbit now.

Edit: I am offline again.

Re: If you dont mind by Meta WonderratMeta Wonderrat, 14 Jan 2023 15:06

Oh I see, it is outdated? Oh well thanks for telling me!

I mean the rest of the site uses discord and most likely no one would post what time zone they are in, I guess maybe for another time eh? Also mittbit chat is very outdated so I see no reason to proceed.

Under your page is an option to upload files "Edit tags Discuss() Files Print Site tools +Options".
There you can upload an image. Make sure you use .jpg with a reasonable image size (for articles I recommend 600*400 or smaller ), as file-size actually does matter.

Re: Also by Meta WonderratMeta Wonderrat, 14 Jan 2023 11:03

Yes, the contest is now. Also, how does your item fit into the contest? We are supposed to use stuff that got into the public domain recently.

You can send me PMs if you want.

Re: Oh well by Meta WonderratMeta Wonderrat, 14 Jan 2023 10:57

No. That is something for other users to decide for themselves. We also no longer use the chat.
