Hello my Time, Space, & Chippers!

You had to know this day was coming. Even when life goes insane for me, I eventually come back. I can never completely leave, even when I think it might be better to just let the site fade away. But I just can't do it, and so we're going to have a reboot!

This reboot is going to be a bit different, though. I'm not just going to clean up some things and throw up some new graphics and go on (though I am working on a new skin). This time, we decided that we wanted an even fresher start. We will soon be moving to a Jcink board instead of staying here on our old Invisionfree site. I put off the idea of a move forever, because I hated the thought of leaving behind everything and starting over. I mean, we have almost six years of roleplaying stuff here. But we think that this is really going to help us out, and besides, Jcink has a lot of cool things to offer. This site will still be available as an archive, so don't worry; I'm not deleting anything. I'll be setting up the new board this week with all the transferred/updated information.

I'm also probably going to be streamlining a bit. There are a few things I'm thinking about slightly altering, plotwise, but most things will be more or less the same. I'm most likely going to get rid of Torchwood 21 (the space station). I might go in a different direction for our two remaining Torchwoods that make them more independent-underground sorts of organizations that feel slightly more like the direction in which the show itself went. Who knows - it might be one of the first stories we do!

A lot of the other things I might change largely depends of people who are still around or who play to rejoin us and make the move. I'm sending out a mass email right after I post this, and I hope everyone comes to this thread to comment! Please post below and let me know if you plan on staying with us and moving to the new site. Also, please let me know which characters you'll be keeping and/or getting rid of. And lastly, if you have any ideas that you would like Doctauri and I to take into account as we update things and I set up the new board, please share them! I'm not promising that everything will be doable, but I'd like some input on things to add, take away, do different, and so on.

Thank you all for sticking around with us!

I've been checking back every so often in the hope that I would find something like this! biggrin.gif

I like the idea of a move I've had experience with Jcink on other sites, and know that its a pretty good forum software with a lot of things to offer. I also like the idea of a fresh plot! I know its been a while but back when things were a bit more active we had a plot going that involved Romana's link to Pandora. Would it be possible to retcon that? And say that the whole Imperitrix thing happened? But was thwarted by the Doctor and co.

I do remember about even having Romana regenerate into a younger more fresher incarnation of herself as well. Would that also still be possible? (I'd have to dust it off but I still have the avatar/signature set that you did Saphira on my computer. The one with SG. tongue.gif )

As for character wise. I'll most defiantly like to keep Romana, and River Song as well. I'll let the meta crisis go (Sorry Rose). I never really felt comfortable playing him, so, I'd like to just stick to the two ladies if thats cool?

Welcome back Saphira! And I look forward to the new and fresh start with TS&C! biggrin.gif

I like the fact that the site is willing to make a fresh start and would like to continue playing Ace on the new site if I may as the Vigalanty or as the young teen. Like Romana said I look more less everyday at the site hoping to get some rping done. smile.gif

If one has to reapply that fine I like to reserve Ace then and use the app that I have here smile.gif. If that doable smile.gif

That sounds good! Will it be a start over? I mean, all else fails, we could always just transfer threads over if they're vital. ; )

Also...Jcink is okay, I can handle jcink okay even if I do prefer IF, but I don't mind the change. I just ask that you could hope stay away from those custom forum structure ways of doing the site, coz it just looks horribly confusing. xD If you don't know what I mean, here is an example.

Owen will be my character. =] Maybe I'll even consider a new character, who knows?

I would love to shake off the dust and come back! Not 100% sure if I'd keep all 4 of my babes, and I'd revamp the ones I did keep a little, but I'm definitely in.

Just as quick note, in case anyone was wondering - Doctauri is of course staying with his characters, and Sphy/Scher had sent me a note saying that she'd keep Gabe, Seth, and Ariana in the event of an activity check (she has finals for a few more weeks). Megs is also staying with Eve, but is probably giving up Amy.

Yay! I'm so glad you guys are going to stay! <3

And don't worry - we're not starting over. It'll be a continuation of things, for the most part. If we do take anything out, it'll be little plot points like Adam was pointing out. The Imperiatrix plot will be gone (shame, I was looking forward to it happy.gif ), and anything else we might want. Like TW21. Though we can still say it exists, for continuity, we just won't have it as a playable faction on the site.

This IF site will still be open as an archive, like I said. If you are currently (or were before and wish to continue now) involved in a thread, you can either transfer posts over or just link the thread from here and continue onwards. Whichever you prefer!

I agree with you, Dawn, on the custom structures. I went through a bunch of other people's skins for a while to see what current things I hadn't seen yet and might want to use, and I found those confusing. Interesting-looking, yes, but perhaps not as efficient.

I haven't actually registered the new site yet, but I've been working quite hard on a skin the last two days! The only major change to the regular format we've been keeping is the sidebar. Instead of the extended one, I'm trying out the tabbed type. It's fixed in location, so it stays in place when you scroll (so if you're on the default first tab, the chatbox is visible all the time). Then there's a tab for OTMs, Staff, and Credits. Affiliates will be at the bottom of the page under the forums. I'm thinking I like it so far! If you're interested, here's a screenshot. It's not finished, by any means, so ignore the lack of banner/graphics and the red buttons in the cbox. tongue.gif

Thank God!

And nice skin, though I'm not into all the uppercase, just like on this skin, but that's just me. smile.gif

Rose, Kensington, Holborn, and Maura will all happily make the trip!!! Nothing could ever take me away from TSC!!! biggrin.gif My one request is that we transfer the Face Eaters thread, 'cause we've had that going soooo long now and we've never gotten to finish it. I was also hoping to finish "Courage and Closure" with Maura. Whenabouts is the transfer going to be?

I am so glad I decided to check my email for this board today.

-clings hugs you all-

I've really missed this place!

I'd like to just keep Rebecca. I adore her to pieces, and even though I love Jenny, I don't have as much muse for her, and I might as well streamline given the opportunity.

I'm so so excited now! And Jcink is amazing, so that's fantastic.

I definitely want to transfer the Face Eaters thread too! And yes, we can finish the thread with Maura! How much of that do you think we have left? Would it be easier for us to just try to finish it here instead of transferring?

I'm shooting for us moving next week, hoping Monday or Tuesday. Just depends on how quickly I can get things ready. Otherwise, it might be later in the week. But hopefully sooner rather than later!

And understandable, Ivy! Go for it. happy.gif

I think we only really need one or two posts in the Maura thread to wrap it up, so I think we could finish it here. And yay Face Eaters!!! tongue.gif

Idea for other people who want to keep their threads, 'cause I want to keep the one with Holborn and "It's All Coming Back To Me": maybe we could start the new posts on the new site with a link back to the first posts/archives-to-be?

Those of you who have been here may well remember that I was the creator of the distorted, confusing and tangled mess that is our board canon in terms of Gallifrey and most of the Time Lords.

Note: this is not a reflection on the membership or the board or the Master's abilities as a leader - I'm referring to my plots exclusively

I'm not exactly sure how to fix the mess - or even WHAT to fix - so that will have to come with what exactly the aforementioned membership and the Master want the rebooted board to contain (plot-wise) when it's finished.

Of course, since I was the author of the mess that our plot-line now IS tongue.gif it wouldn't be fair at all for me not to stick around. So yes, I will be on the new board - with bells on. I don't know if I'll do anymore with Centauri than I already have (I have a hard time finding partners for him) but the Doctor will stay as Eleven until I get a feel for Capaldi's doctor

I'm very thrilled about Capaldi and Twelve but I need guidelines to take on the role of twelve - and bushy eyebrows during the Day of the Doctor wasn't enough

So just to be clear everything will move forward? I.E plots will progress forward in time? Or will they just be gone like they never happened?

Everything else sounds awesome! And the new skin looks brilliant! Also I will say that I feel as if I contributed toward the mess with the Time Lord plot stuff. Which does bring me on to my next question, will Gallifrey still be around as a planet? Or will it be the Hand of Time station again?

I'd also like to offer any help in untangling the plot mess that is the Time Lord stuff. As I said in my previous post I would like Romana to be a more fresher incarnation, yet be more of a capable leader as well as a little eccentric. tongue.gif

Yes, we are progressing forward with the plot. Going forward, but just moving sites. happy.gif

And I think Gallifrey is still going to be around as a planet, but I might talk to Doctauri about it. That would affect you and Rose the most so far of the people coming back, so you'd get a say. If we make it a station again, then the stuff with the Meta-Crisis Doctor and Rose would be retconned - just warning you.

But yeah, you can regen her if you like. Either when we get there, or just explain it after. Or add it to your history.

It would be nice if everyone could update their profile histories for the move, by the way, so new members can see it there. So if you all wanted to go ahead and work on that this week...

I've not removed anything atm - I've not done anything at all. Gallifrey was brought here as part of a plot to interest more players in the Time Lord faction

Didn't work too well - mostly just split the time lord faction (or lack thereof) into several tiny bits

If we removed the whole thing from the story you'd be picking up just after Romana dealt with the attack by the Master on the Hand of Time. Gave Susan a regen cycle and helped save the day. Since the Romana you've regenerated into would - technically - be gone, you COULD return to the 'life' that Romana had at that point and just pick another actress and write her how you want.

As I mentioned in the original plot, Romana regenerated shortly after being brought out of stasis (which was why we put her in Liv Taylor since she wasn't supposed to be very strong physically) and the Susan plot would have taken place shortly after that, meaning the Romana you described is quite possible since the body of THAT Romana was MEANT to be sickly/weak (as she had to wait until the last second to enter stasis and the warping of E-Space around the station damaged her body) but her spirit, determination and youthfulness was supposed to be a better match for then-current Doctor Matt Smith. Given the burden that version of Romana carried - most of it being lifted thanks to Meta and Rose - the eccentricities you mentioned could ALSO happen since, like the Doctor, she carries her own survivors syndrome and tries to hide them under manic energy. Which, considering how delicate that regeneration was supposed to be, often lead to exhaustion and bouts of sickness. Sort of like a cracked china doll - she could lead any army, but her own body has it out for her.

These details were given to your predecessor - given how badly she reacted to most of them >-< and how %@#$ long it took to get that profile written AND how she never did anything with her... ... ... *ahem* I removed most of that stuff when you joined. If you wanted to use them - and if we removed the part of the Time Lords plot that made this mess (the new planet etc as well as taking Rose and Meta off earth) then I suppose it would be possible to achieve that Romana you want to play without even using up a regeneration.

Though that depends on what others want -shrug- for myself I don't really mind either way. I'm the Doctor and - by and large - I don't have that much interaction with the hand of time. From the Doctor's perspective he still carries the burden of what he did during the Time War - these survivors survived because of the Master and because of Romana. He still owes a debt and he feels that debt even more heavily every time he's around his people - he's probably guiltily imagining it; but he can see what he did in their faces and their eyes. I doubt he'll ever feel peace until he manages to return the planet and the survivors of the Time War from their hell in the pocket universe.
