I think the answer is yes but wait for mods

Nick Tasogare
05-19-2009, 07:33 PM
well i think the mods have to make the group anyway, if not its fine, i just thought it would be cool. maybe more people would read the story and do something other than bug the mods and others about the war rules and stuff :)

let me day why id like this to happen. peopl are always posting on the thread if they can join, or that its tmi, even though its a story, and we wanted to make it so that we could be the only ones that could post on the thread.

The whole reason is that there are four of us who are quite serious in the writing we're doing because we are making something really interesting and fun. The problem is that other people are showing up who will post a random criticism of the work while not actually taking the time to even read it.

Post in the thread such as, 'wow man those sentences are long' and such are ruining what we're trying to do. We want to be able to make something that others can still read and really enjoy, but prefer to not have to deal with people who won't take the time to actually read it coming in and saying random stuff that distracts from the content.

That is why we're asking to be made into a group where when we post for our story only the ones that are serious have that ability.

It would be really helpful. And we could keep all of the story pieces that actually go with each other together.

I'm fairly certain you aren't allowed to post fanfiction on this site, if that's what you're talking about. And, if you're wanting your own group for it, as in a group similar to the Global Mods (not having moderating powers, of course) then I sense the answer will be a no.

It's a roleplay based in the Naruto world format. We've not touched any characters from the series or even named the Hokage. viewtopic.php?f=15&t=4309&start=10 (http://naruto.viz.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=4309&start=10) is where we picked up the second half of our story if you're interested in see an example, or really just click a random page in that thread to get one.

In all honesty, guys, what you're doing is pushing the limits of what we can do. I'm waiting to hear back if it's even acceptable to keep what you've got on the forums. I'm really sorry in advance if we can't let you, so be sure to save what you guys have on your hard drives or something.

In regards to the group thing, unfortunately it contradicts the purpose of a forum. We'd like to keep away from topics that get exclusive. You should totally be allowing other people to join in on the story, by the way. Even if they haven't read everything, think of it as a storytelling exercise to try to include their ideas into what you have going (assuming we can keep this going).

Nick Tasogare

could you just explain how its pushin things? i don't understand, it's not like we use the actual characters, and if needed, we could just go back and change things

itasan
05-21-2009, 06:03 PM
*raises hand*

If you really wanted to make it exclusive, you could always just pm the story. It is possible to pm more than one person at once, and each one of you would receive each reply. Then if you wanted other people to read and comment, you could just post some completed version/section to a topic.

Pushing the limits would be writing a story deeply rooted in the Naruto world, although it is without Naruto characters.

but if we had written these characters in different villages and with different leaders abilities, and the like, would that have been pushing it still, or would that be reasonable? i just want to make sure so i dont break the rules (again) or get sued by people who own naruto lol

I understand what he means. It's pushing at the copyright rules even though we haven't done anything with the characters, we are in their world running on their system.

However, if I maybe allow this opinion, I read up a bit on the whole village group thing that's being put together so that people can fight in a story format, and it's the same exact thing. Even more so if you really look at and think about it. If the village roleplay is going to be allowed there's nothing we're doing that it isn't. Just because we're not using a point based system to try and define our work doesn't mean that it's that different.

That is an opinion or course, but that is how I see things. If our story someone goes against the rules, then how are you supposed to let far more people also pretend to be ninja's and fight against eachother for advancement. It's the same thing.

I do understand as well about making it a private thing, I know why you'd shy away from doing that, we'd just like to be able to like delete the one liners that some people put in that break the flow of the content.

Nick Tasogare
05-21-2009, 06:14 PM
well that is for a game, and we are using villages from the anime/manga while the game doesnt, and this is a story, so it kind of is almost like infringement, because the only similiar thing to the game is the ninja abilities and such.

The only difference between the two is that one is a story and the other isn't. And that's a big difference in terms of legal issues. I'm not coming at you guys from a place of anger or anything. I'd like for you to keep it at on the forums, I'm just not sure if it's going to fly with the head ninja.

no i didnt think you were angry, and what your saying makes sense, if we were to make it different locations, a slightly tweaked system of such (if it comes to that) would that be ok?

We might get into user groups pretty soon, so sit tight. But as I mentioned above, you won't get an exclusive user group all to yourselves, and I think it would be better for you guys to go with the flow in your story thread and just ignore if someone makes a random post.

I think what he means is make a forum user group through the forum software (i.e. your names would be a different color), in which case the Village Leader would probably be the Group Leader. I don't know if we're going to go that route, but it's not outside the realm of possibility.

What he said. If I could use one of my own pictures I would, but that wasn't an option the last time I was checking the avatar selection.

Just checked, the only image choice that is pretty uncommon I see is the one where Sakura is about to punch someone. I might find a thumbnail or something to attach in my signature area or some such if images are allowed in that section.
