At the moment it seems that we are rather dead, but that isn’t the case at all. This week, for most, is finals week. So given how finals week usually works, its absolute hell. We have quite a few messages from members saying their activity is lowered due to finals and school in general, so the roleplay has hit a small standstill. Hopefully in a week or so everything will pick up, especially with holiday breaks coming up, it all depends on how everything will go. This is a very busy month for everyone. There are still a few of us lingering about, so there’s still going to be people on the dash. But the roleplay, as a whole, is definitely not dead.
In addition to this, I will address the second question we have.
- Anonymous asked you: It seems like this is a dying rp? Is there still hope in applying?There is definitely hope in applying. We’re still accepting and anticipating more applications. We would love to have more tribute and mentor roles filled, which would bring us to our goals much faster. For those who are still waiting to be accepted, we apologize and we’ll work as fast as we can. Please have patience and we’ll soon be running in full soon.
Copied right from the faq: “It varies upon a case by case scenario. We’ll try to accept as soon as we can, but each application is going to require at least a couple of the staff members to read it over prior to acceptances. Along with that, but their graphics will have to be made first as well. We just ask you to be patient, and we’ll let you know when we’re going to accept as soon as we have decided c:”
Since Zoey is working and she is the graphics maker, it depends on her. I’m not sure when she’ll get to it, hopefully soon but you’ll just need to have patience.
I’m not sure what you mean? We take reservations, yes, which means you say “I’d like to reserve this character” (off anon) and that character is reserved for you. They only last 24 hours and if we don’t receive an app, then the character is open again. This is to make sure we don’t receive more than one application per character, since we don’t allow that.
If I didn’t answer this correctly, please ask a more specific answer.
Also I would like to point out that the app count isn’t changing for me so currently there are no reserved characters and we received and app for the District One mentor.
No, the scoring wouldn’t be randomized. What will happen is that the players of tributes will write a para of what will happen. We will judge them based on writing, adding in their District and other various factors. We’ll probably be writing a note about how this will work better when the time comes.
We always give out mentor tasks. A lot of it is, for example from the parade, is writing what happened in their Games. Like a reflection of some sort. Each time there’s something to do if you’re a mentor. And then in addition to that, we’ll also have these mentor related events to tie in how all of them know about the rebellion. And what is really going to happen in the Games and so on. Don’t worry about being left out if you’re a mentor.
Absolutely! Eventually, we will be having an interview portion. Before that we’ll have the Gamemakers Scoring sessions, where each tribute will show off their skills and such. And then the interview and then the Games. It’s all very exciting. But currently we’re just giving some time for people to come back from low activity and for more spots to be filled. We will get to this point though.
As a general statement, we only prefer one app per character, considering all the characters are OC and it would be hard to have a competition between two(or more) separate character. We only accept one application, especially if it’s been reserved, and you can always check if a character is reserved or applied for by the app count.
Just like you can always check there if a character is open as well.
It’s definitely not late in the game to join! Right now all the tributes are doing are training, so there isn’t a whole lot going on. We still have so much more planned, more stuff for everyone to do. So feel free to join. And don’t be nervous about it being your first one, it’s really straight forward and we’ll definitely help you if you ask questions. This is my second time ever being in a THG rp and I picked it up pretty quickly last time, so I bet you will too.
I wouldn’t say equal, the main form of communication is gif chats. But you can para, actually paraing is encouraged.
