    Updates and Announcements!

    Hello OPBers!

    So it is I, ShichiDrewKai, making my first announcement as an admin! You'll probably have noticed a few changes occurring, so I thought I'd make this thread so they can be discussed and shared with everyone.

    First and foremost, I want to discuss activity. I know that the site has been quiet at times, especially during breaks in OP chapters, but things are going to be done to make things better. Several changes are being made and will be made to facilitate this.

    At the forefront of these changes is that the staff is being rearranged. Some staff members have been removed, and new staff members have been (and probably will be) added. Make sure to thank @Rayleigh and @Rick Sanchez for their contributions and efforts! And make sure to welcome @Kylo Ren and @BlackLeg ( and perhaps others ) to the staff!

    Second, the OGG RP seems to have hit a wall unfortunately. Since that is the case, the Game mods have also been removed from the staff for the time being. The admins are totally open to having an RP on the site, but we need to make sure it's a viable option before opening another.

    Third, I will be personally updating the smilies and emoticons on the site over the next week or so. The Bay V4 smilies will be going (since they're terrible) and I will be opening up opportunities for new smilies to be added. Keep an eye out for a thread announcing this!

    Finally, get in the halloween spirit! There will be halloween themed events, contests, and more to celebrate the season. Please participate and have fun!

    Share any thoughts you might have below. Make sure to keep your posts relevant and constructive. Don't spam, spamming is bad. (And I've got new mods who are just chomping at the bit to flex that mod muscle.)

    -Drew

    Quick question, things are becoming a bit stale and I do miss the One Piece RPG though I will admit a lot of people were really toxic. Could we go back and have a OP RPG using the same mechanics but under more strict leadership so it won't devolve into a hell hole? I honestly don't mind spending time helping to create it if it will help the site.

    Edit: and of course making a few other changes to kind of make it a touch simpler and easier to get into

    That is something being considered, but as you've said it will require proper leadership and structure. Another part of the problem with the old RP was that it was overly complex and difficult for new members to join. If we were to start an OP RP again, it would need to be simplified a bit as well as having new management.

    Thank you!

    It does....



    Kiddiiiing. The tier list is majority vote, so if you get that, you get your wish. You have to ask @BlackLeg what the majority vote is, but I think it's 8 out of 12.

    read my mind. Just editted that in. I'm not the most qualified person but I have a lot of spare time and ideas and really love the RP. If you guys need help I am free to dedicate several hours to help set it up.

    The list belongs to the community, so if the community agrees to it, it'll happen

    Thanks and congratulations on the promotion, Kylo!

    Furthermore, thanks to @ShichiDrewKai and the administration for all the work and dedication for the Bay.
    Think you know about powerscaling?
    Then come to the Tier List Thread and prove it!!

    It honestly shouldn't be that hard to manage. I did promise to look into it but I've been a tad busy.

    I'm sure that you're capable enough to play a role in that, don't belittle yourself.
