I'm with you though, let's get it out there, but the point of a Sticky is to provide important information and keep it at the top of the page indefinitely. Those new to the forums or our server or those who aren't in the loop are pretty much all in the same category of needing that information, so why not make use of the space and shed more details than "hey we've got a channel"?
As far as I'm aware, there's no set number to the stickies you can have in a forum. And I may be biased, but I would think that a global RP channel counts as important information. As far as having it stickied, well - as soon as people stop posting in the thread the information would fall off and get lost.
I think that we should make use of the real estate and that it should be expanded into a short but more inclusive resource about "where to dig up RP on FM"? That way it's not just one more Sticky at the top of the page but a tool that visitors to these forums can use to get connected?
This is actually a pretty good idea, though we already have several posts with that information in them - Roleplaying on Feathermoon & Events being the main one.
Really you would need one for each faction, in my opinion.
Also the problem with lumping everything into one thread is that you then rely on ONE person to keep all that info updated, which doesn't always work out. What usually winds up happening is you have to dig through pages and pages of posts to try and find what's current and what isn't.
I suggested providing a little more information to help players get involved or understand how to use this channel because I thought that it would be useful. Especially if you truly intend for this to be a "global RP channel" and are going to plaster it at the top of the forums to try and drive more people to use it.
I'm going to step out here, because I'm either not making my point clear or I'm magnificently dense and it what I've asked is completely unnecessary.
(( It's okay dude. <3 I'm sorry if I'm not getting it. Communication via the intertubes can be hard. I took a screenshot of some of us playing around in /buzzbox so that folks could see how we're playing with it:
Maybe that'll help? ))
