View Full Version : Why????

Why does it take so long before someone posts again? Escape from Nal hutta is stuck for more then a week, Dark crusade's only frequent poster seems to be wiped from the earth and i am the only one that actually joined fall of the empire.
What's wrong with you guys? how did Escape from nal hutta ever get so popular and so long this way? am I doing something wrong?

Nal Hutta was popular because several people posted a lot. It then went to hell in a handbasket because Lingo got catty over technicalities and voted to disband the thread. After that point, the plot died because he refused to post anything meaningful or in character and instead decided to criticize everyone else.

Your thread is going nowhere because (IMHO) it's boring, and no one wants to read or post in something boring with poor plot.

Fall of the Empire is going nowhere for the same reasons and the fact that people became jaded with this forum after Nal Hutta turned into bickering. Nal Hutta was great and I'd like to see all the people who were on there around the forum again to start another game, one with decent grammar and punctuation, at least.

F-Bomb, you're staring to get a little bold now that you think I'm gone...

It then went to hell in a handbasket because Lingo got catty over technicalities and voted to disband the thread.
Actually, all I did was jump MY character out of MY thread. I did my best to let people RP their own way (and some took too many liberties) and to keep the story moving.
Unfortunately, characters started jumping in -- including your uber-powerful assassin -- that craved action and made the adventure one big shoot'em-up party, and I decided that my character should go ahead and wrap up his part of the story.

POINT -- The name of the thread was "Escape from Nal Hutta". So why was I the only one trying to actually escape? Everyone else wanted to patrol the skies looking for somewhere to land and someone to shoot.

the plot died because he refused to post anything meaningful or in character and instead decided to criticize everyone else
Why are you blaming me for the plot dying? I know why -- because I was actually telling a good story, including character flaws. I swear, some people are like kindergarten kids: "My G.I. Joe can fly and shoot lasers out of his eyes!"

Needless to say, I'm back. And I'm going to try and grant your wish -- let's start another thread with some order. But when the story starts winding down, it'd be a good idea to just make another one.

yeah, let's forget about that and try to get the new RPG's as interesting, realistic and legal as possible. (and by legal i mean following the rules stated in Van Lingo's thread.)
Furthermore, There are some more frequent posters now so this thread can be locked for as much as i care.

Getting bold? Thought you were gone? Lingo, I don't care if you are here to read what I write or dancing on the moon with a pink walrus, I'm going to state what I think.
Could my Mandalorian shoot lasers from his eyes, of course not. What could he do? Let's see, he had a big rifle and was trained in its use. Here's an idea, give a special operative a CAR-15 assault rifle and a couple of grenades and see what he can do. It's very comparable to the skill level of the assassin character.
Refuting all the weak points aside, a new thread with coherent spelling, grammar, and hopefully plot would be great, and I'll be working with you to make a good story.

-Edit- Fixed typos.

yeah, count me in too! i'll do anything to keep it cool!

OK guys, let's try to get back on track. And please, no, more bickering. Let's just get on with it.

You're late to the party, T10. We have been.

04-06-2004, 06:58 PM
Ah, not late again! Ah well, I might come in when it seems a convenient time to unleash: G.I. Joe. (He shoots lasers from his eyes!!!!!)

04-07-2004, 12:05 AM
LoL @ T10...
But my army of little Lego men that can breathe fire and squirt acid from their... from their... their something... will kick his educated-for-free butt!

Alright, time to brush up the thread. I would like to repeat the question stated at the very beginning of this thread. Why???
Again, i ask this because nobody has replied in days. Maybe it's just me overreacting again, and everybody has just a little time for it, but then i'd at least like to know...

05-05-2004, 02:15 PM
Nooooooooooooo..........the little lego people! However, G.I. Joe is uber fire resistant, and can use his lasers to melt your silly little yellow plastic heads. Then he will make an uber visor and wear it. Hahahahahaha!

Anyway, I think that Escape from Nal Hutta was such as success because it was the only one there. Us Rp's had nothing else to do, so we joined. I also noticed that quite a few people who put their names in the character rolecall thread didn't post in the story. So, us roleplaying addicts joined, and those who liked roleplaying but didn't need a daily dosage just put their names down but didn't post.

I read a bit of Dark Crusade, and didn't really see everything I wanted. Just...didn't seem right. I was complacent with Escape from Nal Hutta at that moment. Then, when it fell apart, I'd already made up my mind on that thread. So, that's why, for me, at least.
