Rook-Awards

Some people are under the mistaken belief that all you need is your incredible world or idea, buy a domain name, find a good forum or chat and your new role play website will grow quickly. It will be lovely because you won’t be subject to another site owner’s rules. They will be your own! And they will be fair!

So you spend days, weeks getting your site in order and then you’re ready to go! The players will come and everything will be grand! Everyone will love your ideas, your characters, your backgrounds, your rules and everyone will get along great!

Then reality sets in and you’re there by yourself, trying to entice players you’ve known for years to give your site a chance. And they do log in. On occasion.

Running a successful role play website is hard work and you find your role play time has been infiltrated by other peoples’ drama that you are now having to mediate. Rather than take a starring role in a new storyline, you are behind the scenes doing character approvals or working on the server. You find at the end of that first year that you have to make changes to retain the interest of members, sacrificing part of your dream to make the site more user friendly to all.

It can be a maddening job. And you want to give up. But something keeps you going and site grows. Your site evolves.

For those webmasters that have stuck it out against the odds and hit certain milestones, we extend our sincerest congratulations, our deepest sympathies and offer them our Rook Awards.
