If the idea is to have a place with looser moderation than currently found in some places, then I suggest you have a two-tier'ed system.

You need an area of the forum where some poo flinging is allowed, and another place for the large segment of the community that tends to run to the hills when they encounter that sort of thing.

The lines are a little too blurred for me having IC forum nested in an OOC forum, or is that just me?

IGS not doing it for you all lately?

The reasons for why there's going to be an IC forum have been pretty well covered in this thread.  Please, let's focus this on how it's going to be done now that it's definitely going to be a thing.

I don't really support this in general, but if I had to offer suggestions...

One general forum, and a forum for each sovereign faction. If this is run as an IC thing then I would suggest an 'Independent' forum for the pirate factions rather than supported forums for each pirate faction (A Sansha's Nation or Blood Raider forum would just be silly).

Also, a Craigslist forum (for IC trades, recruitment, etc).

The lines are a little too blurred for me having IC forum nested in an OOC forum, or is that just me?

IGS not doing it for you all lately?

The plan, at this point, is to temporarily host a small trial-run within Backstage itself as a subforum with a handful of sections. If it goes well, we'll probably set up a subdomain with a wider variety of sections for people to use.

As for the IGS, yeah. Go read the other thread - if you have to ask that question, you evidently haven't read it.

Lagging Behind

Morwen's Law:
1) The number of capsuleer women who are bisexual is greater than the number who are lesbian.
2) Most of the former group appear lesbian due to a lack of suitable male partners to go around.
3) The lack of suitable male partners can be summed up in most cases thusly: interested, worth the air they breathe, available; pick two.

word!

I'd suggest just run it as a parallel IGS format.

Breaking by faction might sub-divide too much?

Maybe IC wise this is the 'capsuleer only' private secure comms? Not public like IGS?

As a representative of Serpentis i would like put forth our demand for our own forum. We do not wish to mingle with vampires, calculators or simple minded brutes. We deem a joint Serpentis and Cartel forum acceptable.

Especially for a trial run (but also in general) I am against subdividing into each individual faction as it would simply spread the posting far too thin. Remember, if we split it into each pirate and empire faction, we end up with a staggering nine subforums... plus freelancers and unaffiliated. That's a lot to split a handful of posters out into. Perhaps instead some sort of thread tagging system would be helpful?

I like the implications of Gallentians being punched in the face by walking up to a Minmatar as they so freely use another person's culture as a fad.

I like it.  And it shouldn't be difficult.

need a good set of rules, regarding god-moding of ingame locations and NPCs.

it wouldn't be constructive to have this IC forum as some kind of parallel universe.

e.g. just because everyone that uses this IC forum agrees that Planet X has Y cities on it with Z population, does not make it so.

Especially if someone on the IGS posts to the contrary.
