Allow for the Creativity of CS Role Play Coders
The members of Chickensmoothie's role play section are more than fed up. Yes, this may seem rather dramatic but, imagine you spend upwards of two hours working on one character form and within the next twenty-four hours, a role play moderator comes along and snatches one of your pictures from the coding, making it wonky and lopsided. How do you imagine that would make you feel? Other threads are allowed to have more than one gif/pdf and it doesn't cause lag, but when role players have two gifs/pdfs of the same person in one form, it automatically causes lag. Players have reported their photoshopped imaged being removed. By this, they mean that they went on Photoshop, turned multiple images into one large image, and then used that. This process turns multiple images into ONE image, and yet it's still removed for being "too laggy." One moderator, Raey, has made it clear to players that it's not even about the lag like the website says, but is instead about writing and shouldn't be a competition. We as role players know that form-coding is not and never has been a competition. It's simply a secondary outlet for creativity, and a pleasing way to view a character and their personality through aesthetics.
Please take the time to support us in allowing for more than character image and the addition of decorative images within our forms to encourage player creativity.
