This is actually something that's bothered me since I owned a Kingdom themed Pokemon Roleplay, I had guests that complained my kingdom information were too long, so I made a short version that was literal 2 sentences, and got complaints on that.
Recently I found some people enjoy the idea of making 2 different kind of bios, and some people completely find the work too tedious.
---- I personally recently joined a Hero Academia site that I personally considered too tedious (it was the stat system), buut learned this site has nothing tedious compared to other hero academia sites. So What Is Too Tedious? At least to you.
Really what I am asking.
1. Would a secret sheet be more tedious than a stat sheet?
[secret sheet - character's personal secret info is stored like abilities, fears, history, gender, etc etc]
2. What is your Limit on "Too Much Information" Like 4 threads? 300 words? How much is "Too Much Reading"
3. Do you prefer to lay out all your characters abilities at once or build them over time?
At once: This is it, what I am sticking to this ability; no upgrading.
Over time: Okay I have this much money I'll like to buy this ability and improve this ability
I know once upon a time not sure of the name of the user, told me. "If the Guest isn't interested in reading your Information, than they really don't wanna join your site" AKA "Why should you care about them? They don't care About
You the site?"
Note: This touches on the guests that cannot for absolute anything see large bold letters, word highlights, etc etc All over the place in your information sheets. Are they being lazy? Is it too tedious? Or are you the one who is screwing up having all this information?
//Sites aren't that detailed compared to DnD books, so Why is lots of Reading considered a bad thing?//
[I've thanks to this 1 guest YEARS AGO have always summarized all my writings into laziest format]
What is your opinion on this matter? What do you find TOO TEDIOUS?
And for those who don't wanna post, I added a poll for you to vote..
----> What do you personally consider tedious when dealing with stats, abilities, bios, plot/lore reading, etc etc...?
--- I went ahead made the questions easier to understand based on responses, many apologies. I originally wrote this at 3am, sorry.
--- I fixed the "you" portion since Iota had an extremely fair point about the quote.
--- response to responses: Genre, yeah def importance didn't think about that while creating this thread. Many apologies on that as well, but I love the responses so keep it up!
--- Sorry for making the polls tedious, I kinda wanted to shove everything into 1 thread versus 3 threads...
