In an attempt to better the system, I created the Roleplayer's List sticky so that people looking for roleplayers for their rps or simply other people to roleplay with could find them more easily.
Though the simple sticky thread has worked well enough until now, with the thread at page 13, I think we need to revise the concept and make each of the current 130 profiles and future ones more accessible.
A simple way to advertise one's tastes would be to link to the post in the sticky thread:
At the very far top-right corner of each post there is a small yellow/orange link that says "permalink." Clicking this link will add a number onto the end of the URL in the address bar at the top of the web browser.
Copying this new url into the following code will make it into a direct link to the post that is permalinked.
[url= URL HERE ] words here [/url]
The above code in working form appears as such:
[url=http://roleplayerguild.com/f26/roleplayer-list-18124/#post559433]My first post in the Roleplayer List thread[/url]
My first post in the Roleplayer List thread
One could replace "My first post in the Roleplayer List thread" with "My Rp preferences" or "my rp profile" and place the link in ones signature.
[url=http://roleplayerguild.com/f26/roleplayer-list-18124/#post559443]MDK's Rp Profile[/url]
MDK's Rp Profile
These links could be placed in ones signature and be advertised every time a person posted.
Now, onto the actual topic for this thread:
We need a way to organize and make each of the profiles quickly accessible, because we all know that no matter the devotion, noone's going to sift through 13 pages *in the hopes* of finding what they're looking for.
An idea presented by one Shard was that we could have another sticky thread, or edit the first post of the one we already have to include a list such as this:

This would be far too difficult and unrewarding, as I told Shard in reply.
Now I'm out looking to better the system once again.
If anyone has any sort of ideas that could help this cause, please go ahead and post here. I'm all ears.
