Roleplay Automatically Fails?

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby LittleSun1 on Sun Feb 06, 2011 12:37 pm

I just spent hours creating a roleplay, and my userpage has automatically listed it as failed. Alternatively, it lists a roleplay that ended about a year ago and I can't get it to go away.
Is this because there have been no character submitted to the roleplay yet? And how do I list the closed roleplay as, well, closed?
The link to this roleplay also doesn't work. How do I fix this, it's really annoying me since I just put so much time into it...
Edit: The link seems fine now, I'm not sure what was wrong before...

Hey LittleSun, glad the problem's fixed. Maybe I can shed some light into your inquiries however.

Roleplays are listed as "failed" when there has been no post within them dated within the last week-and-a-half or so. Since a newly created roleplay couldn't possibly have any posts in them, they are automatically listed as "failed."

In addition, the roleplay that displays on your user screen will always be the first roleplay you've ever created (to the best of my knowledge) even if that roleplay have been flagged as closed by a staff member (who are the only ones capable of doing so).

Also, I'm not too sure about the problem that was surrounding your link, but a similar problem arises when a roleplay's title uses special characters such as symbols (♥, ☆, etc) or other characters that could interfere with coding (I think).

Hope that helped,
