I can support this, but a few things.
You're gonna need a few more people active if you really want to get anywhere.
Could you give me an example of describing your character?
There will always be those few that even though the follow the rules, they will absolutely refuse to accept it, and probably do something irrational like leave, talk poorly about the website and such, all because they didn't win in a simple RP duel. You could overcome this by having judges/adjudicators/mods etc. moderate the fight and settle any disputes during the duel and decide the ultimate winner.
Aside from those things I can support this.

You know what else tends to make people talk trash about the site? Not being made an admin when they ask for no good reason. I know what you're getting at, but I think it would only add fuel to the fire. If people are gonna be d- stubborn about results, there's no way an official judge who's also against them is going to help, in fact I've found that usually makes things worse, because then they feel that it's actually the site that's bad, not just one player. This needs to be for fun, on the players terms, or there's no point. This isn't supposed to be a competition. When was the last time you had a judge for a game of chess, or cards, or anything you do with your friends? Exactly. Do you blame the game when you lose? If you don't trust your challenger to be a good sport, don't accept them. If they're active elsewhere on the forum, you'll be able to see what kind of person they are.

As for description of a character, I most certainly can, but not on my phone, I don't have that much patience. I'll do it ASAP tomorrow.
