Changes to profile system

Hey there guys!

We're making a couple of tweaks to how the profile systems work, and hopefully it won't cause too many disruptions!

The aim is to:

  • Make creating a character and submitting the profile more intuitive
  • Reduce the number of places members have to go to find out about various characters and members around the board
  • Allow profiles to be saved while in progress, but make it clear what profiles are ready to be sorted
  • Allow greater flexibility in the application process, the ability to flesh out a character in the way that works for you

And here's what has been done so far:

  • You'll now notice that when you visit your character account profiles, there's a tab called "Character Profile". This is where the new profiles will be located, rather than in a separate database.  There is also a tab for "My Threads".
  • When you visit your player account, you'll notice there are new tabs for "Member Profile", "My Characters" and "My Threads".
  • Fields have been added to the new character information system: Shipper-style prompts (Friends, Family, Lovers, Haters) and a Freeform entry section.

There's still a lot of work to do! But the character profile section is ready to go. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to carry the data from the existing active characters list over to the new system (sorry!).

I would love your help getting the information moved over, so if you could pretty please do the following for each of your characters:

  • Edit your character account profile
  • Copy/paste over the information from the character's existing profile into the fields under "Short Answer", "Traditional App" and so on. 
  • Save the character account profile
  • Post to this topic from that character to confirm it has been done

Staff will then move your old application sheet into the archive. This is so that we know where we're at and who still needs to be moved over. :D 

What does this all mean?

This new system also comes with a new application structure where you may choose to keep with the traditional history/personality/appearance sections, or combine it all in the freeform section. As long as we are able to get a clear idea of how the character fits into the setting and enough information to sort students, the application will be approved. If there's not enough information, we will send through a list of questions we have for you to consider. By allowing this extra flexibility and aiming for quality rather than quantity, we're hoping to reduce the time taken between starting an application and getting into the game. 

If you are a new member still working on an application:

You have the choice! Until all accounts are moved over, we will still be reviewing apps through the old system. If you complete your profile-based application instead, post the topic in "Applications" as you would if you had completed a database-based profile. ❤️
