Do you honestly believe things are still working and are going just fine?

No, this is not a marriage proposal :P
I am here to offer a proposal for everyone still involved, and also previously involved with the RP. I represent a group of people who has been working on a complete rework of the RP and how it works. We have spent the last few months trying to complete it, and we are now close to finish. This process have involved many long debates, arguments and at times, very time consuming
Our overall goal was to create a system that puts an end to various issues that we believe the RP has and still allow for a role-player to roleplay the way he wants, but within reason. How some roleplay is not supposed to ruin other people's roleplaying experience and this is just one of the many things we have tried to make room for.
A few months ago, there were ca. 15-16 people involved in the RP, now there is not even half of that. People have left for varies reasons, but one thing that ties into almost all of them, is the fact
that there have been a distinct lack of responsibility. Both towards others, and one self, and in this process ignorance of things like the rules and the part of the RP system that we know as the Game Master. Both of which, were never meant to hinder one's ability to roleplay, to stomp on anyone's opinions or preferred way of roleplaying, but to ensure that there was room for everyone.
This purpose has been forgotten among the multitude of attempts to empower one self, often at the costs of others. Now mind you, that this is not always a deliberate action, in fact I believe that most do not seek to make things difficult for others or stomp on them. Some merely want to create something, a device, a ship, a faction; which in itself as an intention, is something we should all want in the RP, something that should be good for the RP. But how one achieves that goal, often presents the issue, and as such, the intention and the desired result have a very negative impact on the RP as a whole; on the universe and the roleplayers that make up the community.
We could talk endlessly about, whom or what is to blame. We all have our own perspectives, all of which are a valid opinion, and I could continue to write about all the aspects of the RP. But FACT is, things are no longer functioning, you cannot ignore it. Now, we are not quite ready to present our work and this is not something we want to force on everyone. But we would like for you to consider what I have said, and if you are ready for things to change.
Due to my own opinions and because I know there a few who will strongly disagree, I feel you should know that there will be alterations to RP history, you can check new map HERE. As someone who have in the past argued long and hard about the problems that this cause, it is my personal opinion that due to the many disagreements on recent events, we cannot salvage things without going back in time a bit (To roughly the time that the 2nd Fel Empire was created), and then making a plausible lore to replace that time, and placing factions in a situation that provides a balance and stability that is needed for a new start.
We look forward to know whether you are interested or not.
