All right, it's been a fun ride, but it's pretty clear that this isn't working.

While I can't be sure, I think I'd attribute AC's failure to a number of factors:
  • Timing. I started it in mid-summer, which got a good boost, but then while it was in the middle of its initial growth it got hit with fall, and then NaNo, and kind of stopped in its tracks.

  • While I like the setting in concept, it doesn't provide the players with enuogh motivation to do stuff. Everyone is kind of mutually agitated, but there wasn't enough to do, and no motivation to join the Secret Societies. The concept just wasn't as sound as I thought it might be.

  • A massive communist conspiracy to keep Alpha Complex from succeeding.

As such, as much as it pains me to say so: Alpha Complex: The RP is now closed, effective immediately.

I hope you enjoyed your stay.

...Oh, right. Hiatus over.

Good morning, Loyal Citizens!

First of all, I would like to alert all Citizens to a minor technical problem with the ROY Sector Environmental System. It shouldn't take long for our skilled technicians to find the source of the problem, so we appreciate your patience until the climate returns to normal.

On an unrelated note, reports have indicated that the levels of morale in several sectors of Alpha Complex have fallen below Minimum Accepted Standard Happiness Levels. So, in order to raise morale, Your Friend The Computer will be hosting an Official Rock Paper Scissors Elimination Survival Fun-Fest Tournament! Any Citizen may join for the virtually nonexistent fee of 50cr, and fun prizes will be awarded to the final few contestants, including money, rare items not available in stores, and Security Clearance promotions!

[Alpha Complex revive!
First order of business: The previous Activity Cycle is being stricken from the record. Next activity check will be on Dec 14.

Second: Between now and the start of the RPSESFFT, it is raining inside all hallways within a few blocks of the apartments. The doors in AC are waterproof, and the drainage system is pretty good, so nobody's rooms will be flooding under normal circumstances, but as soon as you step out into the hall: torrential downpour. You can buy an umbrella if you want, but do check the required Clearance Level for it.

Third: To apply to join the Tournament, comment to this post. The 50cr will automatically be deducted from your account (Citizens under age 16 play for free), and your name will be added to the roster. You can apply any time between now and Dec 4, 11:59 PM, at which point the details and rules of the tournament will be revealed, and the fun will begin.]

Unfortunately, I've been unable to keep up with this game as I'd hoped to be able to. Because I can't give it or Kanda the attention I should be able to right now, I'm going to bow out.

Thank you to those who interacted with Kanda - it was a good time!

Hiatus! Okay, everyone currently here saw the announcements at other RPs.

11 November 2008 @ 07:11 pm
Hiatus until the end of November! Applies to Maya (spiritmeister) and Rosemary Palm (withpayment). If you really need me somewhere, poke me on IM, and I'll do it if I have time.

Probation Check Rules
-If a character doesn't post or comment for 2 weeks, they'll be added to the Warned list.
-If a character continues their inactivity for a further two weeks after being Warned, they will go on Probation. At that point, the character is considered dropped, and is available to be apped by someone else.
-To get off of the Warned list, you have to make a post of decent substance with the character in question. Aim for two solid paragraphs, but less is okay if there's a lot of interaction in the comments.
-To get off of the Probation list, you have to re-apply for the character, and we'd probably like a note on why you stopped being active with them before.
-Only in-character comments count for activity.
