Not open for further replies.


Original poster
This section of the forum is dedicated to out of character (non-roleplay) conversations between members. A variety of topics about preferences, daily lives, hobbies, and more can be talked about here and everyone is welcome to join in the discussion. While all the site rules apply, some key ones to keep in mind for this section are:

✔ Use post ratings in a constructive manner. Do not use them passive-aggressively or spitefully.
✔ Remember to post in English or provide translations. We can't moderate effectively in other languages.
✔ Don't engage in disruptive behavior (including heated arguments, exchanging insults, and more) and be courteous if someone asks you to stop doing something.

All threads in this forum are archived after they have received no new replies for 30 days. If you need a thread revived, you can use the Thread Moderation Request form to ask a mod to bring it back. You can also use this form to request deletion of a post or locking/unlocking a thread.
