Actually, I was working on that, having an artist on the GTS+ work on it.

I think someone from GTS should do the GTS banner for the GTS team, and someone from Pe2k does the Pe2k banner for the Pe2k team..

This is just a general all-purpose banner for now to raise awareness for the project. When it's fully underway we will probably make banners for both sides.

Now let's bring up the issue of sign-ups. I'm not sure whether it would be better sign-up on your own respective forum or on the forum we use for the meet, so I'm going to raise the question here and take a show of hands. Who's up for seperate Sign-ups on each site?

That never happens on the forum hosts that I'm familiar with - ProBoards being the prominent one, with ZetaBoards as well. But if you want to host it on an already established forum, I guess we could have it on one... though that would require everyone who's not on the other forum to make an account that will likely never be used again, and I don't think that will sit well with the mods and admins of GTS+.

Instead of a banner, perhaps we could have a little image or text under one's username and rank that says "Crossplay Participant - PE2K Side" or something. I've seen it done on some other forums, so...

Actually, I contacted a few admins/mods on the GTS+, he's going to help us set this up so it works. Anyways, we'll sort that out later.

I was thinking something along the lines of this:


This doesn't have to be official, but I figured I have yet to meet anyone who actually didn't like Latios/Latias, so I figured they would be good for this.

Basically, you put that in your sig and it shows you're an RPer from PE2K so people from GTS know you're their sworn nemesis (j/k, you know what I mean) and they know you're taking part in the Dual-Forum RP. Also, other people from PE2K know you're an ally and you're taking part in the RP. This also helps if we end up going to GTS and someone has to change their username because someone else on their forum took it already.

Unfortunately, only Ryan can change member titles, so we'd have to go with something like this if we host it here.

Hmm, fair point.
I'll need to change my signature again if I want to put a banner like that in there. :o It does look mighty nice, though.

Honestly, writing experience is a lot more important than RP experience. If you can write stories, if you have imagination, and if you have the ability to showcase character development you'll be fine.

And if you're still worried, we could run through a small 'practice' RP or something to develop 'Team Heads' or whatever the Fred Durst we're going to do.

And Rust ... silly forum is silly xD.

Agreed. I can testify that the writing experience from RP/Fan Fiction on PE2K has helped MASSIVELY when it comes to work and school writing. Fun fact, I got a perfect 6.0 on the GMAT (90th percentile) on the writing section, proof that RPing is not only fun but quite beneficial as well. It opens your mind, helps you think outside the box, plan ahead, and greatly helps you with sentence formulation, creative thinking, and description.

So yeah, Jolteon, you've got nothing to lose, I strongly encourage you to give it a shot anyway. And if you're still worried, we're all open for advice and are willing to help you if you've got questions and concerns. Give it your best shot, we'll help you get even better.

Trust me when I say that it doesn't really matter if you think your stuff is horrible; three years after today you will be a much better writer, and look down on the stuff you written today with amusement and many repetitions of the phrase "Hold on, did I actually write that?" It happens. So it's important that you have fun learning about the English language and its use in ridiculous literary forum games, because you're only going to get better and then you can... uh, repeat the process?... yeah, I got no idea what I'm saying.

Anyway, do it do it do it!

Heads up notice:

After a coin toss, its been determined that we're going to host the RP on the GTS site (so the Team PE2K mini-banner might be handy in this case). In truth, the sign up process for GTS is pretty simple, and the quiz to validate your account honestly isn't that hard either. If you read the GTS rules (which we probably should be doing anyway), the answers are all there, and it only takes like two minutes to locate them and select the appropriate answer.

In the meantime, I've made quite a bit of progress with the RP sign up, its mainly the map that I need to do. I'll post it here when its ready to go.

This should be a lot of fun though, I'm looking forward to all PE2K RPers coming together as one united force.

I think we should make the banner a bit smaller. I was thinking something along these lines:



Sure, Neo's is really sexy, but I don't like something so big. I still want to be able to keep my stuff in my signature when I add it in.
