    What is this forum for?

    Let me just start with what I said in the original staff consultations:

    This is a place to discuss:
    • Worldbuilding for fiction;
    • Story & Quest ideas and mechanisms;
    • RPG systems and techniques;
    • Writing strategies and techniques;
    Basically, this is a place to discuss creation: whether that's entirely-from scratch creation of a quest or story; or the building up of a plot or narrative within another world, like fanfiction or a roleplaying game.

    User Threads

    Creative Discussion and Worldbuilding is a place to develop stories, quests and other material. Users may do this in a number of ways, whether it is creating threads for specific ideas, or threads for a particular roleplaying system, among other things.

    One of the types of threads we see are 'user threads,' which are general development threads for a variety of works by the same author. That is not an issue in itself, but we see user threads that trend towards becoming very general chat threads. That isn't the end of the world, but if your thread becomes a chat room, then it doesn't belong in CDW.

    Authors, if you want your thread to remain in CDW then ensure you start it with a clear focus and keep it on track. If necessary request assistance from the staff. Side discussions happen and don't inherently pose an issue, but if it becomes the case that general chat outweighs story or quest development then your thread will be moved to the Chat Lounge. If your thread cannot be distinguished from other general discussion threads - particularly the 'Let's Talk About Our Lives' thread - in Chat Lounge it may also be closed.

    Readers, keep in mind that your actions can have consequences. Don't let your enthusiasm for a thread make you forget that every thread is created with a purpose.

    We will allow for a reasonable length of time for authors to get their threads tidies up, but that won't be longer than a week.
