New Rule on Interactive AARs:
Going forward interactive AARs will be treated just as any other "forum project" and thus must be cleared by the moderators first per AAR forum rules. This does not mean they are disallowed. Far from it. We welcome any and all to attempt such if they so wish. What will be required however is this:
- All interactive AARs will be passed by moderators first before posting the thread. When a member/group is ready to start such a thread, bring it to one of your moderators (CatKnight, Director, Myth, Qorten, Stroph1 or myself) and we will in turn make sure the other moderators are aware. Once discussed, the mod contacted will inform the member that they may begin.
- The thread starter is in charge of the project. While it may be a group effort, we will need one individual able to act as go between with the moderators. This individual will be held accountable should something go wrong in the posting habits of the thread and that person can go a long way towards smoothing any cause for warnings or infractions by bringing such issues to us rather than a moderator discovering it.
- Pursuant to the above, the thread starter will need to develop a strong set of rules that fall within the existing Forum and AAR rules and considers the various "hardships" such threads may be prone to. Such rules should be posted clearly for all to read in the first post of the thread.
- Once the rules are set down and the AAR started, any member ignoring or dismissing such rules will be dealt with harshly.
The list of interactive types of AARs is potentially long so I will define it thusly: any AAR in which multiple individuals are prompting the game player/AAR writer in their actions.
