During our discussion on Lobby Behaviours and Best Practices, many of you expressed interest in a Green Room/OOC Players Discussing Play channel. We are looking forward to a trial run of a Green Room channel on our Discord Server. The trial period will run for ten weeks, from March 1st to May 9th. During this time we invite you to post your feedback and thoughts to this thread.
How is the Green Room different from the Lobby?
The lobby is a place for all kinds of OOC chatter where we can create connections with players in our community. The lobby is also used for welcoming new people to our server and talking about non-RP related topics. In contrast, the Green Room is an OOC space to focus on roleplay in our IC settings. The intent is to make it easier to find RP related commentary and discussions by creating a separate OOC space for that purpose. Just like our Lobby, the Green Room is an unmoderated space, and we will not be policing its use beyond enforcement of our Community Guidelines.
How might someone use the Green Room?
Below are some examples of how the Green Room might be used; this is by no means an exhaustive list.
- making positive or humorous comments about live play
- asking clarifying questions about where people are
- sharing your character’s outfit of the day
- providing a link to music for an event or performance
- organizing or coordinating during a group fight scene
- using the dice feature (?roll) during an event
