Happy New Year... Is Anyone Still Here?

Postby Ryvvn » 03 Jan 2018, 15:09:14

I think we need a serious roll call of still active forum users: those who still want to play games, and those who want to (and are fully able) to GM games. This community has hit its lowest participation point (and GM bailouts) since I first joined back in 2013; has it ever been this bad before that?

Please post your interest and estimated ability to continue to be active. We may need a mass haitus if there’s just no longer enough of us.

I’ll send out a mass email with a direct link to this thread.

I'm back after the last game. A big portion of the last several months has been spent designing and developing my new position, but with that largely complete, I expect to go back to my normal level of participation.

I'm interested in playing, but don't feel I could GM games. I tend to crash pretty early in the evening on East Coasts, and don't have access during business hours. That limits my ability to consistently process or close days. I absolutely appreciate the work that goes in from those who do, so if there is anything that I can assist with outside of normal day processing, I would be happy to help.

I do rely on the signup emails to know when a game is starting, so my only request would be that these get sent for each new signup thread.

I'm still around and up for playing.

Probably not up for GM'ing though. With work blocking the site and my work location have zero cell signal I can't do anything related to the game between 6:00AM and 5:00PM or so. Perhaps not important in a vanilla game, but feel like I wouldn't be able to give the game the attention it might need during the day. Plus I feel like I'd lazy it up after about the 2nd day and would just post the results with no story to go along with it.

I'm always in for playing, sorry for the brief disappearance but real life took a turn for the worse. January, April and May are my busy season. I'll be in for games in February and March. I do not want to see this forum die!

I plan on coming back to play with the next game. Won't be able to GM until I get a routine set between card art and regular job. I know it probably doesn't matter to many people, but it's important to me that I have ample time to devote to an interesting theme and flavor text. I don't want to half-ass it.

I'm kinda here. Lots of different irons in the fire and a wane of interest. I'm sure I'll be back though at some point.

I'm available for sure if pinged via PM for GM duties.

I think I have to consider myself kind of half-active at this point, given the traveling. I don't always have reliable wi-fi (I'm off to the wilderness again in a couple of days). I'm definitely still visiting regularly, but I don't know that I'll be actively playing for a bit, and most likely not GM'ing, but I'll still catch a game where I can (and sub in as necessary).

I'm still checking in. I definitely have lower availability than I once did, but I can play.

I'm still here ready and willing to continue playing. Regarding being a GM I have actually entertained the idea and I do want to try it, but right now work is getting shaky with my assignments, and I've been changing offices a lot, which is always fun but would probably keep me from doing my dues closing days/flavortexting the next one.

I'm still here, and the board still auto-loads when I boot up Chrome on any machine, but we all know what my availability has looked like the last few...years, at this point? Though these days it's a lot less "whoops I went out drinking and missed the deadline" and a lot more "I've just spent 12 hours at my client and can't even anymore". In a few months the reason will likely change to "tiny person demands way more attention than I ever thought possible".

Regardless, I will still attempt to participate in every game I can, and GM here or there when the mood strikes me.

I’m here and will continue to play any game that pops up. Not really excited to GM though, I’d rather not but I can run a game if really necessary.

Hmm well you put us at a 10 count, though one of us (me?) would have to GM, which puts a player count at 9, enough for a shotgun but nothing larger at this time... I’ll consider starting one.

Honestly, with the active player count being so low at this time, possibly not. I may send out another mass email asking for responses here rather than an official signup thread to see if its worth the bother. :?

For some reason, I just haven't been able to get into TWG for a while. I'm still stalking this place fairly regularly, but I'm not sure when I'll be back as a player.

If you're not up to run it, I can run a (mostly) vanilla to start the year off.

Yeah, I had intended on running a retooled version of my Love Letter game from last year, but would want a bigger player base; so if you’re good for running a vanilla, go for it.

At a young age, Omega's parents taught him that the flavor we all know as chocolate was called vanilla. We've been paying for it ever since.
