Now, or probably never?
Okay, so, we need a fresh start. Now, I know you all are probably getting sick of these type of blogs and threads, but I need your say in this. That is if you still remain in this wiki. Since Dapple has now given me the wiki, I will be in charge. I will try to primarily focus on this wiki now, along with the help with anyone who reads this. Now, all I need to say are some few things below.
This wiki is going to be rebuilt.
Not in that type of "deleting" pages way, but a whole new fresh start. We can't work with the mess we have now. It's way too difficult trying to create something new out of something old-- that's already been done. About 3 times. Yes and I'm done with doing that. We're going to need to do something that keeps TROTC running. The members that have left will stay gone, we don't need to focus on them anymore. Right now, let's focus on making this place like it was a year ago. And hopefully meet some new users along the way.
What we're going to do:
Leave this place. It carries too much experience of failure for us, lots of inactive pages and a shadow over our past. But now it's time to move on, if you disagree, please read through this whole list before commenting.
Create a new wiki, from scratch. Yes, I mean it, I want to let us have a new feeling when we recreate this wiki, it will even have a new name. With your approval of course, suggestions are currently being accepted.
Organize a list of things needed to be done/created. White gave me this idea when he mentioned the "to do list" thing. Honestly I think this will really help us out. We will list anything we think of, and work together to create what is needed to be created.
Recreating the Clans. Now, I realize some left-over users hold an important rank in one of the Clans... Do not fret, that postition will not be taken away. People have been upset over this, so I'm taking that into thought. In the new wiki, you'll have the same rank as this wiki does, just different characters (maybe) and new Clans.
First Option: Creating new characters and experiences. I've thought about this very hard, so I'll just put it out there. The characters we currently have are old (some are new, yet not fully developed) and basically rusting away in our inactivity. Remember the Dawn of the Clans? How the four Clans have started and were formed? I want to have that in our new wiki, a roleplay where we all--together--create the four/three main Clans. They do not have to be canon, they could be named after your preference. Each of us will start off with one character only, and roleplay him/her from there. Each of our characters will form together, and hopefully grow.
Second Option: Fixing up the current Clans. I don't want to destroy all the Clans completely, so I'm giving this option a try maybe, if the first one doesn't work out. We could plot something massive that will affect the Clans, perhaps an illness that will wipe out wide populations of characters (inactive cats) and will force the Clans to merge and move out? I don't know, this option is open for suggestions.
Fix our goal in staying active. I'm sure this wiki will induce the effort to stay active, so that's good. We need a change now, before our little community fades away into dust like it never had existed.
Side note: GAH I'm so sorry that was a horrifying amount of text, but please take your time to read through it if you want to give us all a chance. Anyways, I know there some of you left here, so let's do something?
