    SD seems okay, they even have a roleplay lol although it´s pretty basic... just needs a little expanding :feelsokman:


    And about the weird feeling, maybe we could suggest the zoro theme? lol with zoro theme it´d feel like just like home

    We'll be making 1-2 One Piece themes. More depending on if the demand is there.

    If there's anything from this RP that you'd like to carry over, would be a good chance to do it now while OJ is still active.

    Also, wanted to thank the mods and admins for giving me the chance to post about my site. It isn't my intention to take advantage of OJ closing down, but to provide the members a platform to go after OJ goes offline.

    Hypothetical question: if we decided to migrate there, would you consider giving Larsi mod priviledges for the One Piece roleplay section?

    I'm down for that. We're in need of a mod or two anyway.

    Joining an already established forum not only puts us at the mercy of site shut downs that literally may happen over night without a warning, but we'd also be intruding on an already existing community and demand that those that were there before us sgart fresh while we do not, or we reset all our progress.
    A new subreddit wouldnt be an existing
    Ad revenue mostly.

    Regarding joining an already existing site, none of that should be concerned if you're welcomed to join tbh. Most sites would just treat you as regular members finding a platform to stay on, and if the demand for certain features is asked, the more the merrier, because the site may need more content.

    Would see it more as a win-win situation in my opinion.

    No idea what ad revenue we'd get. Bug it wouldn't be that expensive anyway

    Monthly server costs are rather expensive. Especially with a paid forum software, and add-ons in the mix.

    Free forum sites wouldn't be a bad option, but still very limited in what you're able to do. Would be fine for just a text-based mafia or RP I guess.
    --- Double Post Merged, Jun 6, 2019, Original Post Date: Jun 6, 2019 ---
    Not only that, but you'd also have to pay to keep your URL domain, so lots of things to think about.
    --- Double Post Merged, Jun 6, 2019 ---
    Could also go with the option of paying for the server yearly which could be anywhere between $300-400 annually. That's what we did for our site. I really don't think $1 donations per month are conventional, especially with relying on ads that only generate like $2-3 of revenue each month. Not enough to run the site when there's the possibility of less members participating per month.

    If you can afford to pay $50 a month that's fine too I guess. The server and URL costs depend on several factors that I can't name off the bat though.

    Heavy load is a problem with running a site as well, so keep that in mind.

    Truth be told, unless you're self-funding, it's hard to maintain a site these days. If you use a free forum site, that works too, but the site isn't really 'in your own hands'. Still completely owned by the site company.

    I thought it over. I think merging with another forum community is a bad idea. This is because the forum identity created here will be lost by merging. As Larsi mentioned there are also other issues and the course of the RP and Mafia will be determined by the owners of the forum which is accepting the merger.

    I think making a new paid forum is a good idea if solid funding from many people can be ensured. However, I will not be able to provide any financial support.

    If a paid forum is not possible then free social mediums like Discord, Reddit and free forum software should be considered.

    You'd keep your identity, sure, but you'll be financially strained to shit if you aren't able to afford it on a monthly or annual basis.

    Being economically stable through donations is a big "what if". You cannot guarantee secure donations when the community splits into two or three different directions, especially after the actual site closes down.

    Also, this is kinda obvious, but, I don't think it'd make sense to be able to afford to run a new site if you weren't able to keep OJ running in the first place.

    Not a jab and I'm aware there may be external circumstances, but if I were honest, there's no reason to spend excessive amounts of money. Just looking out since y'all seem like a chill community.

    Social media would probably be a better option if you want to keep in touch with the community btw, but then you wouldn't be able to use a forum.

    I have a few conditions for the new forum if we are to move/create 1 @Zemmi @Larsi @KING EXPLOSION MURDER @Chris Mic

    - Dark Theme or something dark
    - No Forum Ranks but we can have Medals similar how on NF you have the "House of ?" medals depending on RP/Mafia
    - Messages/Likes/Trophy Points can be hidden
    - 150 x 300 avatars

    - First Mafia game on the new forum shall be Monster Mafia

    I know these are pretty basic and i know these will be pretty much everyone's suggestion.

    There is one default, its white and light blue. Getting others require extensive work or money.
