|Subject Post 1Subject: Not A Timeskip Discussion Sat Apr 03, 2021 4:41 am|| |
Okay, nothing fancy here in terms of template or anything. It's just a discussion thread. Depending on the result of it and the ideas presented, it may involve a separate poll thread being made.
So in light of the recent poll done by Slayer where there was a lot of feedback and people voting, as well as the fact that it was fairly even in terms of split between yes and no in favour of a timeskip. I come to you all to discuss alternatives, the one I presented which some people from both sides seemed to consider was the option of accelerated time. Quoted from the poll thread below:
"An alternative to a timeskip, which I forgot to add in my initial drafting, is instead of a period of going from Point A to Point B it would instead create a dialation between the time that occurs between OOC and IC. For example, a year OOC would translate to two years IC. You're free to discuss this option as it creates more progress of time, without being a technical skip going on but still speeding up the rate that events can reasonably develop."
If this were to be done, it has two real options here that I can see. Two years in-character is a year out of character. This allows for time to progress reasonably faster over the time we spend RPing without something as straightforward as literally skipping a bunch of time but still moving things along a bit faster for both micro and macro plot RPers.
The more extreme version of this would be one year every season, this would mean every three months OOC is a year IC. This progresses time far quicker and allows for macro occurances like building up of resources, establishing organisation stuff to occur within OOC time very easily but puts a lot of pressure on members because as I said in the poll thread, the average post counts for most members a month is between 15-25 by using March statistics as our basis.
