Hey bb's  
I've been thinking about creating a summary regarding everything that's happening in roleplay lately.

I know things are moving sort of slow because Sam is NOT DOING ANY POSTING AS IAN. But I know you kids are still doing random roleplaying and whatnot...does anynone maybe want to contribute summaries of their mini roleplays? If you give me summaries - or the main ideas I can put it all into order and post it to this forum after everything is done.

When you think about it guys...this is our last roleplay with the books...you know?

And I want to be able to save the ~*~memories~*~ once MNI-II appears, because I think we all have different places where we're saving the threads.

But I was thinking of making a MNIwideroleplay board where we can all save our roleplays and discuss ideas and everything - instead of here, because a forum is much more...homely. This will still be used for the big things - well, I guess it depends on what you guys want, so, respond to this with your thoughts and opinions.

All the MNI roleplayers will need to share common ground and what will happen after the seventh book. Technically...we can do...well, anything we want, really. We're always worrying about following guide lines or "We can't do that because Lucius is blah blah blah." As much as it might scare you all to think about - we won't have to worry about the next book anymore. As far as the world J.K. Rowling created goes on MNI...we practically have full reign. It's a weird though, but it's true.

I mean, we're not going to stop playing because the seventh book comes out and Harry Potter's story is over (sort of). Because we still have our characters and our Ministry and everything...so, common ground will need to be found.

It needs to be discussed - even if it means a MASSSSSSSIVE chat somewhere with EVVVERYONE (as scary as that sounds) - but I don't want people to disagree with how things go. I mean, we can have a new Dark Lord (if Voldemort dies) and ANYTHING can happen (within reason, obviously).

I'm just not sure HOW we're going to do this because there are always the people who disagree with us...and then there are the people who refuse to come here and make me sad, but yes. Anyone and everyone who has ever wanted to roleplay, or have been involved in the roleplay (in any small way) please respond and let me know how you feel about these thoughts.

I think that a large concern after the seventh book is released is spoilers. After all of the other books, there were spoilers for a very long time so that people who haven't finished yet won't have it be ruined. Does that mean that we'll keep RPing as is until the spoilers are removed or just label every thread SPOILER and hope that everyone in the RP community has the time to read it quickly.

The most effective discussion of what-to-do would take place after the book has come out and people have read it. We can decide if we'd like to stay how we are and eventually lead to the events in book seven of if we'd prefer to be current and switch over. Or we could agree on a day (like with the MoM thing) and say on this day, book 7 happens.

I like the idea for a forum archive thing. Some of the RPs take place on other forums than MNI and, for example the RP awards, I couldn't vote because I wasn't there for like half of the entries. I understand things like RtRP are invitational, but can other people see them after the fact so we can get the postal references when you come back?

Like you said, we do need a big chatting ground and this new archive forum could be the place for that. We could have like a Post Book 7 RP Discussion thread or something and tell everyone to put their opinions there or shut it and take what's been decided.

I suppose that whether we stay current (or as current as possible) or actually RP out some of the events would be decided by just what happens in the 7th book. I think that, if we RP it out, having said events *major ones, that is* happen over a span of time might work better, just so it's not like "all these people die, huge battle, world saved/destroyed/massive angst/happiness/confusion" all in one day.

I do agree with the spoilers, though. I can't actually remember for how long we had to place "Spoiler" in the thread title after book six, but I seem to think it was about a month or so (probably longer). Then again, it might take us that long to figure out just what we're going to do with all the new information, so....
