    [Placeholder description]

    This thread is at least partly a place for players to touch base about problems with SPR2, like conflicts that become unfun.

    (I'm on phone and waiting to write a proper intro til we had more stuff out.)

    am i allowed to propose a title change because it gives me a visceral NO reaction due to the first word

    Which is a dumb thing to have I guess but eh. I can deal with things I guess but ergh. Word.

    Anyway this is a good thing to have yes hello.

    I am 100% in support of changing the title to one that doesn't give cringes. I prefer it be funny, but I can always brainstorm for funny.

    i like the titles of both this thread and the spr2, and would be bothered if the title of the spr2 was changed. it wouldn't feel right to me.

    I don't care if the shitpost rave stays the same name wise. That doesn't bother me. The title of this one does. I don't even want to type the offending word in particular because it disgusts me that much.

    Yeah, SPR's title is staying as is. This one is flexible.

    :D

    i think part of my issue is that the discussion of the robots in the spr2 is setting off my "oh no what if i fuck up?! is the stuff i like to play bad to play? do i have to put a lot of effort into censoring myself or putting spoilers or moving threads in order to avoid upsetting people? am i allowed to even do shit anymore?" issues. it makes the spr2 feel like a minefield for me, being told that there are that many things people have problems with and knowing that i can't be 100% perfect all the time.

    (out of curiosity: should everyone be, like. identifying their shitposting alter-egos, for the sake of transparency? or is this thread mostly just for serious business conflicts?)

    That is one of the questions, and I don't yet have an answer for it. I'd like brainstorming on it.

    For myself, my own preference is to keep the freedom of not explicitly saying what all my shitposting alter-egos are (partly because I'm still only in second place for "most subaccounts"). I know I'm anxious enough that I'll check in here when any of my characters get into what even seems like conflict, just in case somebody pings one of my accounts. BUT, I realize that won't necessarily work for everybody.

    Another option is, like you say, people putting up lists of their subaccounts so it's easier to see who to ping if something comes up.

    I like the option of having some secrecy, if wanted? Basically, I'd propose a general guideline that if you're not willing to reveal which characters are yours ahead of time, you check in here a bit more frequently to see if someone is saying, "Hey, can (character name)'s player talk to me?" since it would be impossible to ping the player directly in that case.

    well i feel like my only character is unlikely to get into any serious conflicts, being that it is a seagull, but just in case: hi i'm @Seagull and i'm having a fucking blast (⋈òᴗó)

    when the spr2 reaches page 1000, will a shitposting rave 3 be created or will we continue with the same thread?

    NGL I do kinda want to make an SPR3: A New Shitpost. It means we can re-experience the wonders of such pages as 42, 69, 413, 420, and 666.

    But is it worth the same kind of shift in tone that happens in CDCF when we get to the end of one of those posts, and we're racing ahead being silly while the mods are asleep to try to fill the post...?

    (Well, when I put it that way, yes.)

    But there's bound to be other reasons for why keeping it to one thread is a good idea, too...

    Seconding this!

    For reference, I play:
    Licentans:
    Bit: a dark green shapeshifting robot, of varying size and shape but no more massive than the average six-foot-tall human. Transformer OC so far limited to the SPR, telepathically linked to Cogwheels, Silverburst, and Rustbucket.
    Cogwheels: 60-foot-tall blue-and-gold robot who turns into something vaguely resembling a tank. Transformer OC so far limited to the SPR, telepathically linked to Bit, Silverburst, and Rustbucket.
    Congessi: 17-foot-tall mostly-silver robot. Unless otherwise noted, communicates by displaying text and images on her visor rather than making noise. Transformer OC who lives in the Dramatis Transformae thread, linguist and unprofessional translator.
    Rustbucket: 45-foot-tall, rusty robot covered in spikes. Turns into a modded car. Transformer OC so far limited to the SPR, telepathically linked to Bit, Cogwheels, and Silverburst. Has issues with emotional regulation and impulse control, the most likely to cause problems.
    Silverburst: 30-foot-tall, mostly-silver robot with iridescent wings. Robot medic/mechanic, turns into a spiky impractical aircraft when they remember how dreamspace works. Transformer OC currently limited to the SPR, telepathically linked to Bit, Cogwheels, and Rustbucket. For cultural reasons, will occasionally speak for all of them (in the third person) if they feel uncomfortable or defensive.

    Congessi can't see any of the others' posts, and they can't see hers, for reasons of each thinks the other(s) is/are dead, and their eventual tearful reunion is six pages of me talking to myself-- which is fanfic, not RP or shitposting :P

    Various DT filler characters:
    Eclipse of Apophenia: 50-foot-tall robot who turns into a VLJ personal carrier jet. Transformer OC, in robodiamonds with Venture and Whisperwind.
    Venture of Petrohex: 26-foot-tall robot who turns into a zippy jet. Transformer OC, in robodiamonds with Eclipse and Whisperwind.
    Whisperwind of Obex: 25-foot-tall robot who theoretically turns into a stealth jet but has painted themselves with a bunch of art-nouveau-style curlicues. Mute, communicates almost entirely in images and gifs. Transformer OC, in robodiamonds with Eclipse and Venture.
    (For those who actually know Transformers, these three are a trine!)
    Laeto and Aralia: 6-foot-tall twin robots who will, someday, probably turn into jets. Transformer OCs, children of Whisperwind, Venture, and Eclipse; part of Dramatis Transformae's babygeddon.

    Various Non-DT-Canon Robots:
    >>NaNoWriMo Trine(s):
    Paradox of Operation: The Hills Have Eyes: A 35-foot-tall robot who turns into a stealth jet. Ex-Decepticon and Adventurer.
    Barrage of Vos: A 40-foot-tall robot who turns into a black fighter jet. Ex-Decepticon.
    Dynamo of Vos: A 40-foot-tall robot who turns into a blue fighter jet. Ex-Decepticon. These three are also a trine!
    Ignis of Vos: A 40-foot-tall robot who turns into a red and gold fighter jet. Decepticon until his death, now a ghost; was trined with Barrage and Dynamo before his death.
    >>Murderhusband Poly Pile:
    Afterglow of Apophenia: 30-foot-tall pink robot who turns into a sybian. Decepticon assassin.
    Thunderwing: 35-foot-tall Insecticon, alt something like a blue stag beetle. The Heavy compared to his current squad, but technically a scout-class bugformer.
    Wiretap of Altihex: 15-foot tall red and white robot; turns into a surveillance unit (primarily monitoring electronic communications) similar in make to @Scanner but currently works as a medic. Decepticon.
    @Slipstream: 20-foot-tall filigree robot who turns into an ornithopter. Decepticon.
    Quarrel, the last husband in the polypile, doesn't have an account yet but may occasionally be referenced.
    >>Swarm
    @Sunscourge: 50-foot-tall gold-and-black Insecticon warrior.
    @Overflow: 32-foot-tall robot of indeterminate design, standardformer (probably a wheeled vehicle of some kind) "handler" and translator for Sunscourge's swarm.

    Robot Demigods:
    Amalgamous Prime: 70-ish-foot-tall robot of questionable alt and even more questionable mortality. Worshipped as a deity on Licentus, and will not interact with any of my Licentan mechs.
    Onyx Prime: 70-ish-foot-tall robot with three faces, two alt-modes (horse and dragon), and a short temper. Currently Prime of Eukaris, a transformer-held planet specifically inhabited by beastformers (robots who turn into robot animals). Completely noncanon wrt the current comics run.
    Vector Prime: 80-foot-tall robot who turns into a weird-looking spaceship; guardian-embodiment of spacetime in his particular corner of the multiverse, and consequently a dimension-hopper and prone to making nonsensical references.
    ...is there a page number cap within the forum... eh... layout? (I am {Good At Computers} :P) That is, is there a point where the number of pages might start slowing down the connection when someone tries to open the thread? Because if there is, that might be a good cutoff point.

    (...on the other hand, if we go for multiple thousands of pages, we get more fun numbers. Longer sequences (1234), doubles of the Fun Pages we already hit (6969), palindromes...

    If there is a page number cap, I don't know of one. CDCF, the longest thread in the forum, went past 1000 without any problems. I forget the reason why new threads were made...
    The fact that we can't open all the pages at once suggests to me that there wouldn't be a problem with having the page go on longer. And you're right, it does give us magical new numbers. So I remain undecided!

    i recall that some people said the numbers looked too squished or something once they went into the quadruple digits, and that's why the cdcf decided to split.
