Add your linkshell now!
* I've been out of town a lot so I won't be updating this top post often. I put the names of the new entries in the list without links and deleted all the old broken links.
(ChocoboExpress - RIP?)
There's a thread with some other linkshell websites that I don't have. If it falls off the front page, here's a link.
Thanks for the sticky-ness, I won't let the Phoenix people down! I'll update this header post when I can with the LS name and website link for now. I'll keep them in the order that they are on the thread, so that you can find the detailed post more easily. Please help me and everyone else by keeping this thread clear of extra posts. If you think there should be a correction in one of the linkshell entries, message the person so they can edit their entry (instead of making your own entry). On a related note, if you have a suggestion for the information included in this header post, you can message me. Represent your linkshell on the one and only phoenix sticky!
(My original post)
When I glance over the topics on the message board these days, I think a lot of people are trying to find a linkshell that meets their specific needs. There also seem to be a lot of linkshells that people on the outside might have trouble distinguishing between.
Instead of a topic like those we've seen before: "Which is the best linkshell?" I propose that we could have a linkshell master list so that people who are already in a linkshell can reflect on what their linkshell's focus or atmosphere is, ideally in a sort of objective way. I think this would help people find a linkshell that they really click with, and perhaps distinguish between some of the linkshells that are out there.
I don't know if I'd have the kind of time to manage such a project, but I'd be willing to try unless someone wants to take it over. Please leave your feedback, if you think this would be a helpful venture.
Lastly, I hope that this is not redundant. If a thread already exists for this purpose, I apologize. I couldn't find it.
I'll try to give a profile of the linkshell I use the most, TheLightsTemplar, as a template to show what kinds of things I have in mind for an informational linkshell profile.
Focus: Roleplaying using our characters in the Vana'diel world. (We also have out-of-character chat, which we have tried to cut back on but will always happen in any linkshell. We have creative people who just have to let it out!)
Events: Recently, we have had Promyvion runs on Saturday nights but we have gotten together in the past for roleplaying hangout events.
Peak time: East coast mid-evening. It's usually pretty quiet by midnight West coast time.
Age range: middle school-few, high school-some, college-many, post-college-many
Level range: 30-60, generally. There are very few players of a very high level, but several are even below 30. For roleplaying, it can help to be in this range for the familiarity with the world and the storyline.
Nationality, race or job preference: no preference
Last words: The last half of MMORPG is "Role Playing Game", and our goal is to give a creative option apart from the leveling, crafting, questing, and farming 'grinds'.
Sackholders: Aiora, Arieanna, Sandalwood, Vivec, Tamara, Leilani, Lurial, Raelin, Kaliv, Jaenelle, Nyris, Lasarde, Doranville, Hilkiah (there may be a few more)
(To the templar who read this, I tried to be objective! Sorry if you don't quite agree.)
