so collaborative writing efforts are no longer allowed? I remember one long running one the space opera was a collaborative effort...everyone wrote their part of the story..
Of course they are still available for all our members, so long as they do so within the collaborative writing forum.
WEll what say you all? over to the correct thread??

A Moderator just messaged me, and gave me a little clarity, lol.
Apparently, "smiles at ferret* is role playing.
So I am guilty. And ignorant...and sorry.
I thought it was just expressive writing, but at least now we know.
I asked if we can be moved to Collaborative writing, but I agree that I enjoy the chit-chat (heck, I NEED it!), so if they don't mind us writing our story as we chit-chat, then maybe we can just stay put?
As soon as I know, you'll know.

I have just messaged Springer on his thread to ask for clarification.
He seems to give the impression that roleplay is ok if it doesn't make the system laggy with tonnes of pages. I'm hoping he will reply with a better definition of the boundaries.
The staff has noticed a mild surge in the number of "Social/Role Playing" threads in the ATS Off Topic forums (Chit Chat primarily) which in and of itself is not a problem until they get too large (several hundreds of pages and thousands of replies) and start lagging the database or, worse yet, violate our Terms and Conditions. We are closing the existing threads that are over 400 pages and any threads that repeatedly violate our TAC.
