Happy Summer everybody and welcome to our fifth Real Talk thread! As per the usual setup, we’d like this to be an opportunity to hear from you the players in regards to sitewide concerns. When rough times do crop up, staff hope as a community we can pull together and support one another, and that’s also what this thread is about. We want to encourage communication. We also want everybody to feel Horizon is an inclusive, safe, and enjoyable place to be. So let’s hear your suggestions, questions, and feedback!
Please be aware any concerns that are of an individual basis ought to be brought up to staff directly, to avoid people being targeted. We want this thread to be a positive environment to address concerns in, thanks for understanding! Staff are available to PM or discord and we’ll always endeavor to get back to you ASAP.
More announcements and greater staff transparency for rule changes/updates. - We hear you and have already begun! As a reminder you can check things out in the Site Change log too!
Adding a mention we are LGBT+ friendly and explanation of how trans characters are handled - Done!
Clarified SP claims in particular what counts as ‘important information’ - Done!
Clarified limits on initial puppy adoptions verses re-adoptions - Done!
All rules need to be written down - While we cannot anticipate every single instance and variant of the existing rules, if you are ever unsure of any example of a rule, please contact staff or post it here for sure!
Put in place a rule for re-using names - Done!
Rounds before entering a fight - While our fighting guide does cover this, we are looking into making it a bit more firm of a rule!
Clarifying returning pack wolves who are still considered by their pack as a part of said pack - This is an uncommon example but we do want to nail something solid down since it was brought up in the last Real Talk thread!
Changing colours from the ‘sex’ field on profiles - This possibility will be looked at but not as our highest priority!
More group activities - While we moved towards this with a Secret Santa in place this month, we’re always open to considering more activities!
NOT CHANGING FOR NOW
Moving Horizon to a new website/setting - Decided against for now!
Three-day skip not applying to fights - To allow a natural flow in all threads and prevent total stall-outs, weather fights or not, no changes to the three day skip rule are planned!
Adding more genders aside from male/female - Not altering. While Horizon is a site that welcomes a broad spectrum of players and characters alike, given wolves determine gender via scent, the male/female option is there to express physical gender/pheromones (and physical only as any character is free to identity as whatever they like personally) without causing confusion ICly!
