And now, a FAQ: Does this mean visual novel/dating sims/otome game LPs go in this new forum? No. Please keep them in the LP forum. Does this mean we can't respond to LP threads? Or go off topic? No. That's silly. This forum is what you make it. If the original thread poster humorlessly does not want any distractions he/she will make that clear. There is a lot of derailing in many LP threads AND THAT IS OK. So what does go in this new forum? Anything you want! More specficially, discussion of VN/dating sims that aren't LPs, or meta-discussion from the community that has sprung up around them. Really this is a new forum for the LP community that has sprung up here and it is up to YOU where it morphs. Wasn't that what Social Groups were supposed to be? Yes, but they didn't work very well. There's a lot of bugs and I haven't been able to fix them (I apologize for that). Feel free to continue to use them if you want (like, say, if you can't stop talking about maids) but feel free to use this new forum as well. Will Elyscape moderate this new forum too? Yes. Note that he is finding this out via this FAQ. Be sure to harass him mercilessly and without pity about this. Does this mean we're not welcome elsewhere on Broken Forum? Not at all. There are very much two separate communities that have sprung up here (and it would be silly to deny that) but there have been many users who are members of both, and I hope that continues. I don't want my What's New page to have this forum/all other forums in it. You're in luck! Follow this link http://brokenforum.com/index.php?account/whats-new and you can filter whichever forum you like from your What's New feed, so it can be nothing but LP-related forums, or LP-related thread free, based on your exclusionary preferences (or maybe you just don't like politics, I'm told that's a thing too). Is the new forum considered NC-17 like this one? Oh god, you're making me go there. OK. Look. Most of the forum has to be work-safe, if for no other reason than so *I* can look at it at work. Please do your best to keep this new forum worksafe as well. As far as adult themes, yes I recognize that is part and parcel of the community but I also ask you to please be adult about it and not in the porn-adult sense. You've done well so far, please continue to do so. I have other questions! I've mirrored this FAQ here, and am keeping it unlocked, so please ask away there. Do you hate me? No! To prove it, please enjoy my favorite video ever.
