Title: Forum Change
Tekar Nayr - April 13, 2007 10:10 PM (GMT)
All right, I've brought this to the moderator's attention already, and they all agreed, so here's the idea:
I am going to rearrange Keehrr's forums so that, instead of the hemispheres being the categories, each continent will be a separate category. This gives more room for subforums that otherwise would not be available. It also gives the board a less cluttered look. To see an example of what this might look like, click the following link (note: do not join this site. It is purely for example and is not to be posted on):http://z4.invisionfree.com/KeehrrTest/index.php?act=idx
If you have any suggestions, comments, or ideas on this, please don't hesitate to post!
P.S. I want everyone's opinion!

Keehrr looks better with the continents as categories, I think. Also, it is easier to learn the geography of Keehrr and to specify where exactly you are. I think it is also more logical to have continent names, rather than East and West, because Keehrr the world is not broken down into east and west, it is broken not continents. Although it may confuse people at first, it will not take long to get to, and the new members would not even know the difference.

Well, I honestly think it's a good idea so that we may create individual sections for different cities like a specific forum for Nalid, and for the capital of the different kingdoms in Nelim. I don't see what would be a bad idea about it... I'd say to give it a go, it can only make Keehrr better.

I think it's fine how it is but it is what I know best, I never much cared for changing but if you would like to change it I woun't object to it ^^

I think that it should be alittle more closed together, meaning that I think that we should have some port towns on our continents, and we also need some more places to post at.
Other then that, I like it alot! ^^

For me, thinking of everything separated by continents, the site seems as if it would be pretty cluttered. I honestly don't see why a change is necessary

Nice Man, I love The New Look..You have my vote to go for it!!!

I think that having it divided into hemispheres makes it easier to know the geography of Keehrr, i.e. we will know that it probably takes more time for a character to travel from Mallpi to Selki than it does for them to travel from Mallpi to Nelim. It does allow more subforums, but the problem with that it may be more of a hassel for characters to move throughout the different sections of Keehrr. For instance, if we had a subforum for Nalid and the characters wanted to go to a different part of Jonnathan's kingdom, they would have to make a new thread which seems to be somewhat of a hassle.

Your last comment is not true, Mottull. If we did decide to go through with this, a topic can be posted in Nalid at first, and then in the course of the RP you can "go to Neelor Lake" without physically moving the topic there. That would indeed create too much of a hassle. As long as you start in the same place, it should be fine. As for knowing where the continents are, I have a map that I can add that will give the same information in a more visual way. So that would then not be a problem, correct?

|I have a map that I can add that will give the same information in a more visual way.|
Meaning a "world map"? If so then no, it would not be a problem to know where the continents are, so ye've got me there.
You make a point about the subforums, but I think that it still restricts the freedom of the characters to move about in a sense. I am not saying that I believe that the characters should always stay in the same place. Take for instance one of my earlier threads as Akkarus, A Ride Through the Wasteland
. The characters start out in the Pakkai Prairie, but enter Jonnathan's Kingdom for the last few posts. This sort of thing is fine in my own eyes. However
when the subforums get too specific, it may get a tad bit confusing. If we had alot more members, then this change would be essential. As of now I see no real need for a change. But if the forum is changed to the format that you are sugesting, ye will hear no moaning from me, lol.

I feel there should be ports of some sort seeing as these continents are divided by water. I mean if a character can just appear on one continent to the other seems a little too free( for me at least) I'm just saying a voyage with a bunch of people could be exciting or in other cases flying could wield just as much suspense. I ask nothing more than to consider my suggestion as it is not my site nor my rules, but I just want to make it more interesting, isall.

There are port cities, I just have yet to describe them. I'm feeling inexplicably lazy. If you would like to come up with some descriptions for forums and whatnot, feel free. I can tell you now, Kellioss (in Seroff) and Keltich (in Dekk) are port cities. If you would like to create a city name in Mallpi or some other continent, please feel free to tell me, and I will add it.
Kari Esponya - April 22, 2007 11:01 PM (GMT)
Huh, Hao gave me a slight idea; he talked about flying so I was wondering how would it sound Tekar if we did have flying?
We could use Magick or something since there are a lot of ways to make flying work. Personally I think that would be nifty.
Side note-Now that I know some pot cities are there I can help think of descriptions. Yay! -_-

Sorry it took so long, but I had to find my Folder of names, cities, regions, and miscellaneous other stuff. Here are some names for the ports pick whichever you like:

All the good one's I got are posted above. Goes to show how much I write.:geek: These are from at least six of my stories, but nonetheless you may use any of them.^_^ I put stars next to my favorites :drool:
Kari Esponya - April 24, 2007 03:48 PM (GMT)
Keltich-These are rather large ports and the town is fairly prosperous also. Many people use this port to ship slaves in and out from Selki, and so many goods are passed around here.
I hope that was good. ^^
