Do not discuss spoilers about new episodes within the Cbox until at least a week after the episode has aired, if you wish to discuss spoilers simply make a thread about it (Keep the title spoiler free aswell).
So I've been doing some thinking and, after seeing a player I rather like ready to leave because their threads are rather inactive, I've decided what this place needs is one of these LINK!, an IC Chatroom that has no canon connotation to the site but still allows players to play with their characters when they're not exactly in the mindset to post or when things are just slow and they're waiting on someone's turn.
Obviously I'll have to wait on the actual moderators before making any solid rules for the place, and it's not supposed to distract from this site, but complement it. That being said, potential new members do get thrown off joining when they see a global chat that hasn't been posted in, in days; so I'd like for the Off-site link to be placed onto a notice board so they'll know where everyone's at.
Now if it turns out people don't want it, I can always delete the chat, but I just feel like this'll keep members coming around even when they don't have anything to do for so long.
Edit: Well I've just realized this should be in the Suggestion Board, not the here. Oopsie.
So we have the Chatovod!, which was me picking the first thing off Google that looked familiar; and Chatzy!, which I'm not entirely against. I'll probably settle on one or the other later. The SU skins are leaning me more towards Chatzy.
Now to clear up any confusion; It's a pretty standard idea: Jump in, RP your character, maybe chat a little if no one's roleplaying.
See, the idea came from a Homestuck website I was on that kept its members active through the Land of Chat and Box when they didn't have anything to do on the forums. There's no reason anyone can't jump on the RP Chats if they're not planning to RP, it's also a pretty good way to see everyone's roleplay styles *Cough*and silently judge them for it.*Cough* Overall, it's just some silly, fast passed thing that allows members to have fun with their character or plan them a little differently when they're stuck waiting on someone's post.
Now I'm pretty sure one of the rules will be that you have to make a Character App before playing, but those are details for when I talk to the mods.
The point is I don't want active members losing their will to RP here because things are slow. It even *Cough*allows you to passive-aggressively remind someone it's their turn to freaking post.*Cough* lets you get to know the other members who normally don't chit-chat and just want some good'ole fun playing.
There's alot of chat RPs communities. Considering I'm in one myself, I do think we should require an app because that's just a good system. Considering it's in the chat though, it should probably not be a limit of 120 words, because that just destroys any sort of OOC communication on the thing.

This Roleplay is a prequel to Steven Universe to an extent with some slight retconing and its own progression to the story that will turn out differently to how stuff plays out in the show.Thanks to the message by Rose Quartz several gems are rising up to protect Earth and have labelled themselves as the Crystal Gems. Others on earth are remaining aligned to Homeworld though despite the isolation of Earth from Homeworld
All gems on earth are still stranded, the communication hub is still offline and all the space warps are shattered, it has now been revealed that this is the work of Rose Quartz and her small group known as the Crystal gems. They have rebelled against Homeworld and have chosen to protect the Earth (Trapping themselves on Homeworld to keep the warps down).
Now both sides are fighting among themselves along with fighting against the 'Corruption' a virus is infecting many gems turning most of them into mindless monsters, but those with a stronger will seem to becoming something more sinister.
The Game has changed now. The question has finally been posed, are you against Homeworld or allied with them. Or do you have your own agenda that may or may not been assisted by the ‘Corruption’. Regardless the seeds have been placed down and although it is only the beginning the fight for or against Earth and the corruption has begun. The choice is yours for how it is shaped on the Original Steven Universe Roleplay Site.
Orginal Opening Plot Here Thread That Changed Everything
Differances Between the Roleplay and the Show
*Thanks to Rose Quartz' message the Gems on Earth are entirely aware that the Homeworld Gems intend to wipe out the human race.
*The "corruption"'s Origin is still unknown, some suspect it was a viral infection, other claim it was a Diamond experiment gone awry and other suspect the organics were behind it. Regardless no one seem to have a proper answer about what it was and why its only isolated to Earth
*Garnet, Pearl and Rose are assumed capture on Homeworld
*Garnet,Pearl and Rose broke the space warps to delay Homeworld
*Thanks to Roses Message gems now know what the Kindergarten was used for
