Adding train stations
« on: August 01, 2015, 12:34:46 am »
Since in RP, every thread is essentially a scene in a movie, maybe we could have in each area a train station. It could be that ponies could meet up here, or if they are going from one place to the next, the could go into the train station. It would make a bit more sense than having ponies in a bakery in Canterlot leave then suddenly appear in the Crystal Empire. Just as a possibility.

I guess, but what kind of exciting RP is gonna happen at a train station? 'Oh, hey Broadshield, you ride trains too? That's cool. Woops, I have to go now.' [End Scene]

See what I mean? I know I sound like a smartass, but, well, it's just my opinion.

Hey you never know. Probably the only reason I suggested this is because it makes more sense than popping out of one scene and into another. Sure you can mention in the post something like 'Broadshield disembarked from the train and walked toward the flower shop' but with a thread specifically for train stations, you could have meet ups or confrontations happen in these places, it doesn't necessarily have to be there just to show people your going to another place (even though that makes sense)

I mean, I guess I see your point, and worst case the forum section exists and people simply skip it, it's not like we have limited space. Alright, I'll support this idea.

Sounds good! It would be nice to get the mods opinion on it though.

Because train stations are located within the cities, wouldn't it be easier to just title your thread something about being in the train station and just having it take place there? Because if you want to talk to someone at the station it's still within town (unless its in the middle of no where, but in that case, it can go in the everywhere else board).

I was thinking of having the train station threads on all of the boards. It's a public thread (kinda) so anyone can go there, buy tickets, wait, potentially interact with others then go to another train station when they have 'caught' the 'train'. After that, they go to another train station thread in a different place, disembark and go to wherever they need to go, maybe meet up with someone else. As Octavia said, worse that could happen is that people simply skip it. Just my two bits

I understand what you mean, but that would require to make four more boards and I currently, we barely have people filling up 1. I also don't see extensive threads that will take place at the stations. I'll wait for the site to get a bit more popular before considering adding them. Still not a bad idea though. I'm glad you are making a suggestion though.

That's a fair point. I would suggest possibly sticking the thread possibly for later if we get more people and the idea goes through.but thanks for your opinion!
