GMs of Active Universes (non-Multiverse)

Tips: 1.00 INK Postby mombie on Mon Mar 23, 2020 3:29 pm

I am speaking to those universes that are not showing up on the front page despite being very much active.

Apparently, one should update your setting avatar (an image) in order to show up on the front page. Please do this ASAP so that RPG can get your Universe displayed as it should be. I know that this is a tedious nuance, but please get it done. I will send PMs to people in a bit, when I have time, to GMs with active universes that are not getting their spotlight on the Front Page to make sure that we can get up there.

This is just one small step to building a better RPG.

Thanks, guys!

I am still looking for new players for my own RPG and I never knew about this. It's not tedious at all! I'll try it and see if it works! Thanks Mombie!

*Tries it out* It won't let me edit the avatar, Mombie. I guess after a certain length of time, you're not allowed to change it.

Another thing I have to recommend is getting a Setting-specific description up for your settings — when users are browsing the list of Places (from the link in the header), they generally end up clicking locations that have descriptions rather than those with "None." as the description (the default).

Here's a screenshot from what I'm seeing currently:

I think making the descriptions more engaging will go a long way to bringing in new players to your Universes!
