Same situation. The interest check sections.
I'm sure however brief the idea is that it'll be enough to garner some followers.
An idea for an RP? That would go into the Interest checks, An idea for the site? That would go into the suggestion and problem forum.
Also, did you get an answer to your PM Question? I forwarded it off and haven't heard back yet.
Alright, I'm still getting use to this whole thing. I'm curious on how to create my own roleplay and how to inset spoilers or whatever they are that collapse and expand when clicked. I'm a little lost with this whole site because I am new.
Do you want me to join your team?
RPG Guide for New Users for a much better explanation than what I am about to give (if it doesn't help you out.)
To create your own roleplay, you first need to put your idea into an Interest Check. All an Interest Check is, is testing grounds for whatever roleplay you want to make. We have 5 unique Interest Check sections that depend on what audience you will want to work with. If you don't exactly have an idea, but want to flesh something out, the best place to go would be the general Interest Check section. If you're not use to roleplaying, or just want to be 'free' with no general restrictions (other than the site's main rules), then you can put your idea in the Free Interest Checks. If you have been roleplaying and want some amount of structure, then you might want to go to the Casual Interest Checks. If you really enjoy roleplaying and have some intricate ideas that you want to flesh out and be structured with, check out the Advanced Interest Checks. If you enjoy roleplaying just between you and another person and not a group, then the OnexOne Interests Checks is the best place for you to start. If your roleplay involves a lot of fighting and battle, then go to the Arena Interest Checks. As you can see, there are quite a bit of sections that you can check out before you find out what is best for you. Just make sure that you fit the guidelines of whatever section you want to enter.
From there, after you have gained your interest, you can create an OOC in whatever section you want your roleplay to be in. The OOC is purely optional and if you don't like it, you can just go ahead and make your IC game thread, ready for roleplaying. It sounds pretty complicated, but once you get use to it, it's not so bad.
As for the spoilers/hiders, you want the code:The end product looks like this:HTML Code:[hider=Whatever You Want] Hello! ^^ [/hider]Hello! ^^
Just make sure you don't put any apostrophes in your hider's title. If you do, you'll get a broken hider like this:blahblahbalh
I hope I helped you out, Lieben. Sometimes I get carried away when I am explaining something. If what I said didn't make sense, I can get another Comrade to answer for you. =]

This is just a thread to see if people are interested in what you have proposed. I always direct people to this article by HeySeuss which has some great ideas about what you'd need to make an appealing Interest check. Then once you feel you have suitable interest you move on to make an OOC and then an IC and let the RPing begin!
As for Hiders they are easy. [hider=the title you want]text to be hidden[/hider] becomes this:
text to be hidden
Don't use an apostrophe in the title of the hider, for some reason that breaks the coding.
If you need further clarification let me know.
So, decided to start a game on this forum to test the players xD.
But first I must ask certain stuff.
Considerign that the users in this forum are all RPers. They must probably be playing between 3-4 games at the same time, and that's really time consuming.
Also considering that 3/4 probably (I'm just assuming) plays medieval fantasy or based in series RPG most than others.
So what I wanna know is pretty much, how much is normally to wait until your game gets picked by certain players?
I'm not really sure what you are asking. Are you hoping for specific players to join your RP? If so then you should PM them a link to your thread.
Are you asking how long before the interest check gets enough players to move to an OOC? It varies so greatly I couldn't really say.
If this is not what you are asking, clarify and I'll try to get you an answer.
More likely asking how long it takes for the interest check to be considered, assuming that the RPG isn't a medieval fantasy setting or based in serie.
And considering that many players should already had full hands occupied.
