They started developing the system while Cormyn was still here. He had screenshots of it.

They were in an email a looonnnggg time ago. It was one of the very first newsletters concerning AG3. Sorry I don't have them in accessibility. =/

I'm pretty sure they've never shown a thread watch feature. It would be in Kirby's thread otherwise.

I think it is wiser to install/implement the features one by one and thus have a way to immediately act upon a bug/glitch.

The purpose of the beta.

Yes, you're right GoM, but I was merely trying to explain how one is able to act upon anything that could go wrong when implementing/introducing a new feature.
Even though it is tested extensively, doesn't automatically mean that it will be flawless... there's always the possibility of an error or a variable that could occur and screw things up... ;)

I'm pretty sure they've never shown a thread watch feature.

I think I still have all the AG3 newsletters somwhere lying around in my mailbox... somewhere... if I get the chance and have the time I will look them up and post a copy of a screenshot here, ok GoM? ;)

I'd like to suggest a drop down menu for the Community button.

Let's say you hover over it, it'll show all the forums you can access. Instead of having to go to the forum index and scrolling to which one you want to go to.

I don't know if anyone will like the idea but I think that in the community, we should have a seperate role play forum. Not a role playing game but the ones that rarely appear in the forum games.

I'd think the reason nobody makes rps here is because they either don't care because there are other role playing threads in a different web or because the forum games is too overcrowded with these other games like "you banned" or "yggdrasil."

As a personal opinion, I'd say you create a seperate role playing forum and keep it there for about a month and see how it turns out. If almost nobody posts there, then you can remove it.

I also think we should have a subscribe button on each thread so we can easily find it if we ever forget/lose track of it.

That feature has been suggested before.

Forum RPGs are not as rare as you think. It's just that they're less active than other forum games. I therefore think a separate RPG forum is unnecessary.

I remember when people complained about the exact opposite happening: the Forum Games section being overcrowded with RPGs and the like. It should be noted, however, that "You're Banned" has been around for over four years while most forum RPGs don't last more than a few months.

I'm sure, if you set the right rules and guidelines, you could pull off a literary RPG in AMW. Just make sure that you don't attract the wrong people, i.e. people who post one sentence every other post as their contribution to the story.
