Well she is gone, so don't complain, please.

I don't like it when somebody continues "kicking the dead horse" and especially when it's about one of my friends. Stop it please.

Some terms used in F7 Location Threads differ from elsewhere on NationStates. An example is "OP".

"OP" stands for "Original Poster" in other RP subforums. It stands for "Operator" in F7. Thus an OP "operates" his thread. He might have CoOPs (Co-Operators) to assist him. An OP's role is the same in many regards. OP manage the thread, or sometimes referee the game. They have thread ownership (as defined in the OSRS), and they can make up rules for their game. They can also ban players from participating in a game and, if that player doesn't leave, they can ask Moderation to step in to handle the player. Please respect your OP's rules and wishes.






Image
A Location Thread or, more properly, a Chat Location Thread (CLT), is a classification of roleplay that takes place in Forum 7 on NationStates. Location Threads are considered primarily chat, thus are not found in P2TM, but are still a form of roleplay allowed on the site. Blanket-bans on Location Threads have been installed and removed in the past. Arkadacia (Formerly Totallynotevilland), made an attempt to turn his CLT into a solid RP in P2TM Chat Location Thread but, due to players wishing to continue with a CLT format, it didn't work. Chat Location Threads run very fast (capable of eating up twenty pages in a day on the more active threads), and can be difficult for one person to manage. Because of this, many OP choose to appoint what is known as a "Co-OP" to help enforce the rules. However, some OP may choose to minimize their presence, making what is called a 'Chill Thread' instead.






Image
A Chill Thread is a Location Thread in which the Operators minimize their presence as much as humanly possible. These threads tend to be extremely popular due to the lack of angry Operators, however they tend to fall prey to the Red-Text wrath of a Moderator's Banhammer.






You bet! There are almost limitless ways to run a F7 Location thread, and its ultimately up to your style, with some methods working better than others. There are plenty of ways an Operator can go about it, including serious invite-only Threads like the Liquid Wallaby, where strict post quality and membership rules are imposed to keep the thread under control. A trending fashion among threads is based around Your Nation's Politicians or Personifications Based off of an Anime called Hetalia, rather than any old character you can come up with.

I must stress however that Valar Morghulis applies to your thread, and all threads will fall one day. As an OP you can attempt to delay it by efficiently moderating your thread and keeping the population entertained. The two best ways to kill a thread are Inactivity (OP and/or player) and Modly Wrath, so try to keep both of those at bay.






According to Sedgistan, “Location threads flourished in F7 when it was first set up (the most popular being Nanatsu no Tsuki's ”Mama Nana's Bistro") [and ”Nap’s Boozery”]. Moderation was originally very hands-off in F7 (we used to only act on reports), and this lack of oversight led to the location threads going bad - lots of flaming, baiting and obscene behaviour. When stepping up our moderation and punishing the offenders didn't work, we shut down every location thread, and set up the mod-sanctioned ”Flaming Wombat”. Eventually we allowed other location threads.”

In addition to location threads, F7 saw many church threads (such as ”Church of Reppy”), the NSG Senate, standard PBP role play games, and much more. It began to be a cluttered community. Eventually, Portal to the Multiverse was created to house PBP RP. Location threads remained in F7, however.

According to Arkadacia (Formerly Totallynotevilland), the Flaming Wombat carried on for quite some time before finally being shut down in early 2013 by Moderators for turning into a den of borderline Erotic-Roleplay (ERP).

Several months after the fall of the Flaming Wombat, TNEL attempted to revive the same basic style of thread by creating 'The Freezing Roo' which never took off and was unfairly ridiculed by some members of the P2TM, II, and TET communities.

After several more months, TNEL formed what was known as the 'Liquid Wallaby', which to this day is the strictest and most secure Location Thread series on the Website.

After the formation of the Wallaby, several threads rose and fell, with a thread called 'The Hotel Llama' becoming the most popular, and ultimately becoming my first interaction with the Location Thread world, before the Llama eventually died of its own accord. After a brief series of Anti-Democracy League 'Mansion Chill Threads' were opened by the player Transyl died of inactivity due to the limited population, I formed my first Location Thread known as 'The Dorm' which began a long-running series of threads known as the 'Diligens Threads'. After the Diligens Threads had carried on for over a year, they changed hands to the (Now DOS) Co-Operator Lingria, who left the management of the threads largely to a Co-Operator who later Resigned.

After the resignation of the Ozzy (The Co-Operator), the threads were eventually shut down by the Nationstates Moderation team for being a complete nuisance. With the fall of the Diligens Threads, several new ones formed including one based around YNL or 'Your Nation's Leader', Hetalia, and even two threads made by myself and The Danish Confederacy, each claiming to be the legitimate Successor of the Diligens Threads. After I chose to shut down my thread due to the community having gone to TDC's thread, it was discovered that the locking of the original Diligens thread was foreshadowing to an event on May first 2016 known as the 'May Massacre', in which dozens of Forum 7 users were punished after being caught taking part in 'Erotic Roleplay' using the gameside Telegrams feature, finally leading us up to the current state of affairs at the time of my writing this guide.






At the time of writing this guide there are currently no rules against these threads. However practices such as Erotic Roleplay (ERP) and other rules violations may result in punishments to a player or players, and potentially hurt the community at large if enough players take part in the chaos. As such, it is advised that you follow the OSRS and an OP's game rules whenever you hop on a new thread. And remember that an OP's game rules may change from thread to thread, so it’s smart to check every thread you post on in this forum.





Now this is a bit of a tricky one to answer, it depends. Who are you RPing with? Who is the Operator and what are the thread rules? In the end it all comes down to what you feel comfortable with and what the thread OP is willing to tolerate.

I personally have a peeve when it comes to players posting things along the lines of 'oiy wub u plz gib clay nd exists', and spammy posts along the lines of 'an imperial elite guard walks into the bar and looks around and yells EVERYONE SHUT UP AND SURRENDER TO THE EMPIRE!'. In fact, that second example will almost always end in the perpetrator getting a barrage of the other players telling them to up their post quality, keep their military out of the thread, and stop being rude to everyone else overall.

In the end, this type of thing is on a case-by-case basis and its really up to you to keep your posts to community standard. It doesn't hurt to follow some RP basics, either, like: no godmodding, no metagaming, etc... unless the OP allows that.






As a user who has had their format plagiarized in full or in part a lot since I got into making these threads and seen almost all of those threads fail, I can attest that it is very important that you make your own format and come up with your own setup for setting up your own opening post.

I personally recommend a welcoming title along the lines of "The (Location), come on in!", with some flavor image at the top, with the [horizontal line] code used to separate that from a list of the Operators, before using more [horizontal line] code to separate that from useful links and rules. I would recommend playing with the NS Forum Codes for a bit and figuring what does what, then coming up with interesting combinations to make a simple yet effective thread OP.






Yeah, we forgot to mention this. The dreaded autoprune happens when your thread doesn't have any replies for a while. You can ask Moderators to archive your thread, though. Go to the Archive Megathread make your request.






The following is input from various community members regarding F7 and Location threads.

[Danish Confederacy] My stance on Location Threads

Really, if you can get just a couple of guys or gals that you can trust to uphold the rules, rule taking care of is easy. And if you can tap into certain fan bases, you can get a good bit of people. Also, make the OP half decent. Cause if it looks like sh¡t, then no one really wants in. And give people some freedom. That's the main bit of chill threading. And if anyone wants to start a thread, go ahead. It won't bite 99% of the time. Its a good bit of fun running the one I have now, The Commonwealth. Also, remember to alternate places.
Stay classy F7.


[Low Bloods] How I view the phenomenon

Allow me to describe a location thread as a fire at first.

Ok, well, a location thread is a flame that tells a story. It relies on a few things, some can go in blind and start out with a spark - this could be an idea, but it should be well thought out - that'll make a great flame. The more members of your community you have made the higher the flame will be, the less the people may be the weaker it'll be. One shouldn't make a thread with little thought out story just thinking it'll become the next best thing.

The Host of the thread should be kind but have a sense of justice, if you are hostile to the members they might leave, so try to be understanding. This also reflects on the community if you have a hostile community you might scare ones that are looking to join away. And all must be aware of the rules, because it keeps everything under control. And it's ok if the host is busy from the thread as long as they have someone to watch over things while they are out.

Sure there will be ones that try to extinguish/steal the flame but it's best to ignore them, not letting them get to you. And the community speaks for the leader. If there are corrupt kings rebellions will happen... And everyone should acknowledge each other so no one is left out, I believe this should be even more for newcomers because if someone is ignored they are more likely to cause trouble.


[Ozzy] Its all about knowing the right people

It's all about knowing the right people, man. I had (non-clique) group of friends in role playing regions of their own that would usually be thrilled to join my old iterations of Hotel Llama. Otherwise, I scour the regions with the F7 tag and befriend the people within them.

Friendship between members is what builds a location thread. Sadly, friendship is not immune to nepotistic circlejerk zealousness as we all witnessed in older threads.

You have no idea.

Also, as a friendly reminder, when the post you're replying to was from over 4-5 months ago or more (around that) don't reply to it. That will constitute as gravedigging, and the mods don't want you to do that.

Considering this is a pinned post that people are supposed to respond to as needed as opposed to a user-posted non-pinned post in while it is active, I dont think that is going a problem.

Depends on the format. If it's meant to be some sort of game, then yes; if it's meant to be more of a discussion topic about conlang sources of inspiration, that'd probably be best in F&NI. Beyond that, would have to actually look at the OP.

Apologies for the delay. People don't often post here.

For any with a similar question - You use the image code. It's denoted by the Image button. Click it and drop your image url between the code brackets.

Code: Select all
[img]ImageUrl[/img]


So
Code: Select all
[img]http://i.imgur.com/uSYy8Df.png[/img]

gives you an embedded image:

This is called "hotlinking". You need to be careful because you are responsible for all images you post. Make sure they don't violate NS rules (OSRS).

Yeah, it's in a way explained at the beginning of this thread actually but doesn't have the actual acronym definition of the two.

No problem. Also yes, I'm vary sure YN means your nation as well, I probably would have explained that but I couldn't think of any other acronyms F7 used at the time.

(I really hope this doesn't ruffle any feathers because boy did I spend an awful lot of time hoping that it wouldn't!)
Well... I thought I should dive into a topic that may be on a few people's minds. That topic being "what's why difference between C/LT (Chat/location threads) and YL'sR (Your leaders's response) threads, and at the end explain why they are currently being hit with the "Too similar to each other" mark that has been happening as of recently.
(As always I don't want either thread genre to be locked I'm just explaining this to hopefully help the situation get better as I always hope situations do.)
C/LT
As many know the C/LT are currently under a modetorium, basically meaning there are non that can be made at the moment, the only one active at the moment is... The Ram's head saloon.
And a varient of location thread would be the Chill thread which honestly all I can say the differences were was that chill threads usually changed locations.Though both are under modetorium because players a long while back partook in not so site friendly activities.
"What's the difference?"
What is a C/LT and how is it different from a YL'sR thread?
Well a Location thread is usually consist of a few things which are...Location Threads
Location, and lands
Location, meaning that it's set in a specific area, it's in the name. They can take place just about anywhere.
Character of many kinds
Characters, which can be something well known like if someone wanted to come in as a character from a show, or even a made up character one that is original (Thogh if you do you might want to explain any complicated bits or you might be misunderstood).
And while you can bring your leader into a C/LT some will advise you to leave your army behind due to the one's that think they can take over the place
Lore/Story
And last is story, which means you can carry out conversation with people and shun the ones that you don't want to talk to! (That's a joke by the way.) Any partake in a glorious story that can be arranged of many crazy factors and twists. (As long as it follows site rules of course.)
No sign ups
You might be thinking this sounds alot like something that belongs in PTM or Another tab. Well if you think about it usually communities blow through the threads because unlike PTM most don't have sign ups, anyone can walk in at any time there is no open or closed for most.

And if you were wondering where's the community for these places? Well let's just say it's like the avatar, when the world needed them the most, they vanished.

Your leader's response threads
And as for YL'sR they only have little aspects of the above which can be vary easily explained as...
Not often using location
Instead of being in a location it's not really explained most of the time. Sure sometimes it is but not most.
Your leader
The problem I had when going into these threads most referred to my LT list of characters which ment they were thinking a guy who throws pies are running my nation.
A strong word of advice, you should make a tab for your leader spacifically in your factbook because that's what everyoneis going to be looking for, some may not even respond if you dont have it. Because Your leader's response threads are usually revolving about how your leader would act in a situation.


Why YL'SR are in danger of being seen as C/LT
As annoying as typing all of the abreviations are I'm typing them for a reason, and that is I don't want anything to be banned and perma locked.
Mods are seeing YL'SR threads as C/LT's because people are using the player created "/Skip" to carry on side conversation that to be blunt isn't needed. And also interacting, as I see it it's just a form of adding a little character to your leader so they aren't cardboard cut outs, but it is a element that also shouldn't be occuring.
I really don't have rights speaking for either community, but I just feel it's something that has to be done, because as much as I hate seeing a whole section being shut down, I'd hate to see two whole sections shut down. And I hope this isn't seen as anything other than what it was used for.
Also I want to add I did joke around alot through this whole post, it's just my way of spicing things up...

On a final note I'll have to mention if anyone has any other questions about C/LT there is literally Forsworn's post above reffering to almost everything... and I'm even in it seeming like some crazy person! For those that just somehow can't find it here's a link:Forsworn's post...
(Though be warned it is from a while back, alot has happened since then.)
About to flip a table because I suck at formatting, well that's all I hope this was more helpful than random information (also feel free to message me on any errors that might have popped up during this post).
