Ladies and Gentlemen,

As nothing was here to this point announced, I'd like to introduce myself as the new Community Leader for the Varieté section of the forum. This part of the forum generally maintains our business and sports/athletic roleplay and should be considered as an excellent place to allow your creativity to run rampant. There are not too many rules as to what kinds of things you can post in this forum so I encourage you to find new and interesting ways to utilize this space on the forum.

As a Community Leader, I am not here to solely assist in the various discussions and problems that may arise. Frankly, there is not so much to do in this part of the forum in regards to moderation. Instead I encourage you all to make use of me as a service. Here are some things that you will see me do, and also what I encourage you to ask of me:


  1. This specific thread is to allow for as much transparency as possible in how I operate this part of the forum. Things that I moderate on will be discussed in as much detail as I possibly can in this thread. Additionally I encourage you to strike up general RP questions or comments in this thread.
  2. I encourage you all to work hard in creating RP, and in return I'll do my best to help you in making your RP successful. As such, you can make requests in this thread of me. What kind of requests? Anything... really. Typically the easy things I can do to help make your RP successful is sticky your thread. If you are hosting an event or engaging in a spirited business RP, I'm more than willing to sticky your thread on request. I will subsequently un-sticky the thread when it is completed.
  3. I will run a Varieté News Thread, in which I will try to promote the various RP you engage in. Additionally, if you so wish, I'm also willing to post anything you want in my personal National News thread to help promote your events and actions. Send me a copy of what you have written and I'll post it as soon as possible.
  4. I will use a bold violet color when I do any housekeeping.

Hopefully there will be more to come in the future, and if you have any other odd request, comment or question, feel free to let me know. I'll also make changes to this initial post when interesting ideas come up that I feel worth sharing.

Umm... what about the IPH Bestseller list? I liked that idea. It's a quick way to show what culture is in with our countries. Regardless of who wins, the books are already popular in their home country, so it gives you an idea of what's popular with the submitting country's people.

I think we can get that running again. I'll see what I can do to help the infrastructure for it.

I stopped doing it after the first hack, I think I'll just wait until we are back up and running.

You mean once Xen is back? —I was debating having a primary thread that isn't comprised of posts, but rather just the monthly lists in history with links to the actual monthly thread. I wanted to talk to you about that, but eh, nobody seems to be on the IRC at the same time this week.

I've created/posted the beginnings of point #3 of my introduction post. I decided to base the "news" out of Tibur, to give some flavor to the NPC/Prop 10 nation, and because I felt I could try to keep it "unbiased" that way.

I hope for this to be an innovative new way in which to view content on the forum, and perhaps a blueprint for future threads which want to summarize RP.

The thread is locked. It's not made for discussion, it is made to present information on what is going on that might be interesting to you. If you want to discuss things brought about in that thread, I highly recommend it is done so in this thread.

I'll work to update it every time I see enough activity to warrant an update. So if you guys aren't busy, then I won't have much to post about.
