Title: Indie Night Revival?
Post by: Ela on 09/14/18, 07:12:24 AM
Hello Lovelies,

@Noth (http://begerencolony.org/index.php?action=profile;u=1307) championed a pretty cool initiative in the Spring, which was dedicating an event each week for just random drop-in RP, with the predictability of a set location and time. I made it out to a few, but then summer came and it seems everyone's schedule and playtime went kasplodey and interest waned.

Do you all think reviving this would be a good way to bring all of us together again? There have been times in the past few weeks when I've been completely GSF'd/quested/storied out, and have wandered around to the various cantinas and public spots looking for random RP, and seem to always come up empty :( This might be an awesome way to stimulate conversation, and hopefully an increase in server cohesion and participation.

So...your thoughts are very much appreciated! I think the key questions are:

- what day(s) and times would be best? We could always have it one night to start, and perhaps expand it to one weeknight + a weekend time if we have buckets of interest
- my thought is to keep it open-world, to maybe pick up some strays. Any thoughts on locations(s)?

Let me know what you think!

I've been to indie night before and I thought it was pretty fun! As for myself, my schedule kinda sucks because college is a full time job for me. The best times for me are on the weekends (i.e. Friday, Saturday, Sunday). Do what's best for others and not necessarily what works for me in particular.

As far as locations go, Rishi's cantina is great, although expansion locked, and Nar Shaddaa's cantina is excellent because cross-faction shenanigans. (Voss isn't half bad either, especailly since some people treat it as though it's...Kwenn?) I'm trying to think of non-cantina locations and am currently coming up empty.

I would love to see a indie night revival since rp has been pretty much dead, for me, on Shaan. I know I did a poll awhile back and, if you're interested in times, saturday evening seemed to be when most people were available to rp. Hope that helps!

Thanks so much for the input, @Biavi (http://begerencolony.org/index.php?action=profile;u=1056) and @Ash (http://begerencolony.org/index.php?action=profile;u=1601)! That actually works out super well - it'll give us a regular weeknight event (Jedi Night) and a fun weekend one.

I'm going to pop in a standing event for Saturday evenings...just need to come up with a fun theme...will work on that today!

I'm not always available Saturday nights, but I'll do what I can to attend when I am!

Done :) Event is in the calendar except...I can't figure out how to set a time or make it recurring?

You can't set a time, usually people put it in the title, and you can't make anything recurring, you have to enter it manually each time.

Sooooo Saturday night was a bit of a bust. And by "a bit", I mean quite a lot...

I hung around for over an hour, but the biggest problem I found was that there were three different instances of Nar Shaddaa :rage:. I kept hopping among them, but didn't see anyone. (Now I know why you smart-pantses use SH for these events...)

Sorry to anyone who wandered over and saw nothing but an empty Cantina :umm:.

I came by around 8 (I was busy beforehand) but once I was free, I tried to find people and eventually gave up, partially because of the instances problem. Hopefully sometime in the future I'll be free again and it'll work out!
