Poll

At what point in time should the story open? (Elaboration in posts is welcome.)

A while before the test so that everyone meets?
Shortly before the test so that we don't interact until we reach the other side?
Just after we cross to the other world, before we lose contact with the facility?
A certain time later after we cross and after everything goes wrong?
Sometime else?

Poll

Once we have the chance to go our separate ways, should we break up 'teams' into different RP threads in order to keep the story organized?

Yes, that's a good idea.
We could, but I have a better idea (please elaborate).
No, we really shouldn't because (please elaborate).
No, who cares about being organized?
Something else!
Note your location in a spoiler at the beginning of every post (Arum).

Although the idea of people splitting up into teams is a good idea, I feel that the teams will be assigned therefore people who have already established more or less a relationship in the conference room have a chance to not be in the same team therefore the interaction in the conference room was for nothing. I say (if you want) you can get people to travel with or or give your self the option to travel by yourself.
It's not assigned.
It's that people will go off in groups of their choosing

Copy and Paste for a poll option addition request.

[21:34:56] ‹Arum› On one hand, I like the individual RP thread ideas
[21:35:33] ‹Arum› On the other, I'm not sure about splitting off the topic; if people go solo, where do they post? They can make their thread, but then where do the multi-people interactions occur? (A.k.a group A interacts with group B. Do they post in own thread or make a new one?)
[21:35:57] ‹Arum› A fix to this might be to create "area" threads, which would be far too many (12).
[21:36:37] ‹Arum› So my solution would be to do spoilers

[21:37:08] ‹Arum› The spoiler would contain the approximate location so that interactions can occur, and the comments can be searched for by area to keep it neater
[21:37:32] ‹Arum› Say, if Joey and MMC get split up because MMC chases a butterfly, and Joey is in the desert of time and MMC is in the forest of life
[21:37:48] ‹Arum› Joey would do [spoiler=Desert Of Time] and MMC would do [spoiler=Forest Of Life]
[21:38:25] ‹Arum› And if AD goes to the Forest as planned, then he can set up an interaction with MMC, since he's in the same area, and he would also post as [spoiler=Forest Of Life]
[21:38:45] ‹Arum› That way we keep one thread, but it is still organized as to group, and allows for solo writing.

Add Ons
[21:40:56] ‹Linkcat› ‹@Arum› I like that idea, but I think we should use colors instead to make it easy to find connected parts.
 - This idea would mean scrolling, but is also feasible.

More managerial/organizational things to discuss:

- Checking and re-checking spoilers for information is not likely to be much fun for us (for fact-checking) or for anyone in the future who looks back on what we did to try to figure out the secrets by which we became so amazing. As such, I have received recommendation (and strongly support it) that we instead use headers which contain the color, the element symbol, or both. It is difficult to misinterpret and easier to access.

- With division into two groups, our timelines may unintentionally diverge. I'm open to ideas on setting up some standard so that one group doesn't go through a week while the other has only passed two days.

1. If we go that route, we'll need to get standard colors because then similarly colored elements like Water, Air, and Aether might get confused.

2. Perhaps we could have the people who end up with the post at the end of the day in the RP kinda have a Day X at the end of their post so that the other group will know how to coordinate the time. Obviously there will be times where one group is a day or so ahead of the other due to varying scene lengths, but it would allow the groups to know when they could try and meet if the occasion arises.

With regards to timing, I think a 'Day X' at the beginning, only when the day actually changes, would be enough. In addition, the watches allow for an easy explanation for in-universe precise timekeeping... unless they don't actually have clocks and are just glorified magical storage and computation devices :P

Listed, Asdw. I ask that you do pay attention and take pride in writing something great.

As we write headers...we could use a standard. Be as artistic as you want in listing twelve hex codes. We'll probably keep neutral as the default gray text.
