Is this locked for editing? I want to add links to ranks and so on. --Silent Hunter 09:56, 20 September 2012 (PDT)

I must have locked it for some reason... unlocked now. --Chas 19:36, 21 September 2012 (PDT)


It looks like this article needs a complete rewrite... Anyone else interested in participating? -IndyFan 12:18, 3 December 2012 (PST)

It does... but I've locked it for the moment. If you have large chunks of text or new sub categories to add, please email me... concerning what exists already, I have some ideas for how I want to edit and will work through it over the coming days. Let me get through that first before posting specific comments on how to edit what already exists. --Chas 20:10, 3 December 2012 (PST)
You're alive! Why not just open it up so anyone who has ideas can participate? It wouldn't surprise me if we weren't the only two with something to contribute to the article. -IndyFan 04:51, 4 December 2012 (PST)
I've finished the general rewrite. Please let me know your thoughts, what else should be added, etc. My basic though process was for this to be a page that provides an overview of simming... enough that anyone who reads it will have a general idea of how to sim and the important points. More indepth topics should be included in the subpages... and I want to build up the subpages on simmers, sim clubs, hosting, and intersim organizations to become in depth guides on each item. --Chas 12:13, 2 January 2013 (PST)

More genericEdit

Hello! Since the communities I come from have never even heard of the word "simming" to refer to this, I was wondering if we could move this article to a more generic title. Suggestions are the following:

  • Textual role-play
  •  Play-by-post role-play
  • Text-based role-play

Of course, the article then needs to be rewritten accordingly. Additionally, I think it'd also be helpful to for instance add stuff about the different styles of simming (by e-mail, forum, and especially simming by wiki would be important to have here too), and additionally also something about what rules are conventional.

That's a good idea. I suggest using the more generic and technical term "Play-by-post role-playing game" as the name of the article. Also this mirrors wikipedia (see Thoughts? --ChasTOL (talk) 22:03, October 31, 2014 (UTC)
As no one said anything, I went ahead and changed the terminology and rewrote the article, using the wikipedia page as the base, and incorporating the old data here into that. Please review, edit, expand, and share your thoughts! --ChasTOL (talk) 03:10, November 9, 2014 (UTC)
