Welcome to Plagued! We are an original zombie roleplay forum with a twist! On this active zombie survival forum, we accept players of all different skill levels, and have a grand variety of character types and locations to explore.
It's been over five years since the dead began to rise, and an overwhelming force of demonic enemies are running rampant in the streets. The population of undead are growing and constantly on the move, but can humanity survive such a deadly plague? Or is it already too late?

Heyyy. I know I'm just a newbie here but I have a few suggestions for the site. :)
First - a thread for overlords looking for reavers, and vice versa. I'm aware that there are other places that people can post, but they're sorta spread out all over the place, and if there's just one thread for it then it makes the process faster and easier to quickly start plotting with someone.
Second - a thread that's somewhat like the canon thread, but characters submitted by players on the site. e.g. someone might be looking for a brother for their character's plot or something. Helps people get immediately involved in a plot, which is good because people tend to post a few times and then leave because they struggle to get, er, 'stuck in'. Would probably need a time limit after which the character becomes available to someone else again though, just in case the person claims it and then goes AWOL.
Just my 2 cents. I've seen the second one on other sites before and it is a good way of drawing in new people/finding people for your plots. :)

hey JJ, thanks for taking the time to offer suggestions as to what we could do better around here - it's always nice to see new members taking the initiative ^.^
I guess for both of your suggestions, I would say we have an area for this in 'plot pages' section under 'creations'. It's not very specific, but it does allow for anyone looking for a canon character or for an Overmind looking for a Reaver to post there. So, while we may not have specific areas, we do have a section where members may post and search out what they are looking for. As for new members getting involved in plots, all they need to do is post in there, or simply talk to the folks in the cbox about it - we're all pretty happy to include people in whatever is going on xD
Anything else, or does this kind of provide an answer your helpful suggestions?

Exactly what Jasper said, and I'm going to rephrase just about everything he said here because I like to kick Jasper in the face by restating everything he just said.
The plot pages are where someone would go for either of these things--if they are looking for takers in the thread that you mentioned in the first suggestion, then they would post the details of that idea and who they're looking for to be in the thread in the plot pages.
Same thing for the second part: someone who is looking for a roleplayer for a character that they'd like on the site in relation to one of their current characters, then they'd ask on the plot pages. This doesn't guarantee a response or any takers for their suggestion, but making a new sub-board for it wouldn't guarantee volunteers either.
In any case, thanks for the suggestion; if you have anything else to say, feel free to post it here or message a staff member about it.
