Forums as XP-gainable Postings

Since I can't apparently not-think of them / hold them all over for Saturday...

RP in the forums! You guys have some good character journals, IC letters, etc. The same code that works on the chatrooms can be added to the forums as well and locked down to only benefiting you in specific (IC) forums - is that something you all would be interested in? It wouldn't be a quick change, but it's not a huge re-write either - so it's well within reason by the end of the year.

Personally I'd be up for it. Even adds an additional venue in relation to the character driven stories. Not all "NPC's" are nearby. Perhaps you need to hold a dialogue via long distance. You know, texting, the old fashioned way. It is still IC.

My only suggestion and I don't know if it exists, since I don't really go into the IC forums, is an OOC box may be needed. Just like the chat, it does not count towards the XP gain.

I like this idea, as boblet said sometimes you need to communicate long distance, and the journals, also would be a good place for a character to start a collection of stories without having to dig through archives and stuff.

Example: the case Sarav has been on has ties to Iskrania. Now taking 2 months to travel down there then 2 months out to ask a few questions is silly. Since communication or teleport magic costs money. Thus for long distance, good ol' paper or walking there is still the most used.

Or say keeping in touch with npcs or possible even pcs that live the caravan life.

As a toggle

As a toggle with an OOC box and only in specific forums (AKA everything y'all have already said), sure! We've been doing little bits of forum RP for as long as I've been here, I don't see why folks shouldn't get rewarded, it takes just as long to type as an IC post :)
