Hi everybody! The time to move is nearly upon on us, and with great change comes great responsibility (or something like that). Great symbolism?

Great acts of filling out forms? Regardless, this post is covering two things: the mini plot event that'll segue our characters over to DW, and a few last steps for you before we get this show on the road.

First, for you:

● If you haven't already, you may now join [community profile] capeandcowl & [community profile] capeandcowllogs with your character accounts, and [community profile] capeandcowlooc with your character/personal accounts.

Membership to these WILL be based on the usernames you provided here, so if you haven't hit that already, what are you waiting for? You'll get dropped if you don't--!

● Once you're accepted into OOC, please verify that all your contact information is correct and up-to-date! Additionally, since so many players have them now anyway, we've added a line where you can list your plurk, in addition to AIM and email.

● OOC is currently a little cluttered and some things are being moved around and rewritten, so don't... pay any attention to that yet. TIME FLIES WHEN YOU BREAK EVERYTHING. Once we're settled over, we'll cover more clearly what all has been adjusted (such as: hey we threw out the villain cap system on apps yay)

● No, you can't make posts in any of the comms yet. SORRY! We need to do one last import to pull over stuff from Main and Logs. And OOC I am... vainly hoping to keep clear of real posts until February first, so the month of January on the calendar page will only show directory-related stuff. I HAVE A DREAM, DAMMIT. A DREAM OF ORGANIZATION...

● Oh, and if you haven't already attached your OPEN ID (LJ) accounts to your DW accounts, you can do that now if you wish! Though be careful, the process cannot be undone, so choose wisely!

And I think that is everything for... now! With regards to that.

Anyway. On to the plot.

On the day of the move, February 1st, everyone's communicator is going to be mysteriously nuked, meaning they will permanently stop working and all data collected on those devices up to January 31st, 2012 will be gone. As a result, everyone will have to go back to the Porter building and pick up the new, improved communicators. These new communicators will have the archives intact, but they will be scrambled so it will be difficult, if not impossible, to tell who posted what anymore or find anything easily. Compare it to navigating the main community without tags or usernames. (... shut up we're working on it.)

These new communicators will resemble a cross between a Samsung Doubletime and a Nokia E90 Communicator, but will be most noticeably different from the old communicators in one regard: these ones, upon issuing, will be automatically registered to an imPort's identity, much like the dog-tags are. This means every post an imPort makes with their communicator will have their name -- first and last name / whatever name they give to the Porter / is in the first part of their labeling tag -- attached to it. Remember that "state your Name and Hero Alias" part of the welcome spiel? Yeah, it's that.

As such, after this point the only way to make anonymous/"alter-ego" network posts will be if a character manages to steal a new communicator that hasn't yet been registered. (This requires mod permission, of course, and you can request this on the plot post!)

Additionally, the communicators will be slightly buggy at first (from 2/1 to 2/10), so be wary. Your encryptions might not be that encrypted, and who knows if they'll go where they're meant to. And hey, when did you program in that auto-record?

Of course, all possible glitches are voluntary on you-the-player's part; everyone loves a bit of chaos, don't they?

Cross-encryptions. You may encrypt it to X but it will go to Y (specify if and when this happens!).
Cross- video. You may be X talking about her hot date, but it will show feed of Y taking a shower.
Volume non-control. You might be whispering, but it will be heard as shouting, or vice versa.

Again, these glitches are entirely voluntary. Please plot with any players you are interested in doing something with.

Why the security change? Simple: You're all being watched much more closely! The communicators have been tampered with by someone who has been investigating the network.

Have fun. :)

ooook so basically anna (ii) and ic ame up with a thing that maybe the Avengers should have a night out where they go drinking???? and then shenanigans happen

so to sum it up with annas words

have a drinking contest at a strip club or something, deadpool pole dances for no goddamn reason, some npc shows up to DISRUPT AND RUIN EVERYONE'S GOOD TIME and clint both misses the fight and has to be carried home because he's passed out

SO UH GOD HOW DO I WORD THIS does any of the Avengers (plus friends...) want to maybe do a drinking log or something where they go to a strip club or w/e and i guess drink themselves to unconsciousness and then stupid things happen and maybe they get kicked out or theres a fight or deadpool flashing them or what

CALLIN' A HIATUS JIC FOR THIS WEEK because I'm going on a business trip and have no idea whether or not the hotel has free internets. If it does then y'all can expect your evening tags on the regular I hope unless this job kills me.

Tags I owe are happening today too btw. I'm very grateful to everyone sticking with me as I try to adjust to my work schedule and balance everything else along with it. It's not been very easy and I apologize if it's caused anyone problems. If you need to know resolutions early, we can hash it out here with no worries whatsoever.

Hey, everyone, just a small heads up, since I'll be really busy working and preparing a RANDOM WEEKEND TRIP to Paris, I'm going to pull a semi-hiatus, possibly until after I come back and after the move to DW.  [DW isn't labelled as porn at work! Hah!]

I'll be backtagging whenever I can, as usual! But yeah! catch you guys later.

Taking a hiatus until the move. All the issues with LJ are wearing me down and I just need a little break.

So as if this (saturday) morning, Rapunzel has been ported out for a canon update that I have been putting off for ages. She disappeared while healing Sherlock at the hospital, mid-heal, (in a log that is going to happen, if a bit backdated) and she'll be returning either tomorrow night, or Monday morning, I haven't decided just yet.

She'll be bumping to almost the end of the movie, on the way back to the castle with Eugene after the showdown with Gothel, so her powers are changing slightly. She's losing the 'her hair regrows after two weeks if cut off' and gaining hair-length manipulation. She can decide how long it is, and her hair color/powers will change depending on the length she chooses.

It'll take her a bit to figure this out, though! And then I will get to use ALL HER ICONS again! Woo!

So, that's it. Her chipperness will return shortly!

Hey guys. I'm going to be in Dublin over the weekend, so tags from me will be slow! I won't be online at all tomorrow, and I'll be back on Sunday but I'm not sure at exactly what time. I will try and catch up on everything once I'm back, though, I'm not planning to drop any threads (unless you guys want me to, in which case let me know).

I'll have my phone so I'll still be around Plurk if anyone's looking for me!

Going on a semi-hiatus since my computer has essentially died for a bit and I may not have as much access to this computer as I'd like.

hi everyone, carlee here! i'm posting on kat's behalf (and partially my own) to let everyone know that she'll be unable to tag until the game's move, due to the fact that she can't access livejournal at the moment. (this affects gwen, jim, and carol.)

as for me, i should have posted this way sooner, buti've had some trouble with the site as well (hence my lack of tags/slow tags back with uhura). but once the move happens i'll be around more often. thanks for your patience!
