What can you tell me about Feedback? We used to get it fairly often (with things like Rookie Symposium or just people doing Feedback for Feedback), but it seems to be pretty much non-existent. Do you guys have any ideas on how to get people more vocal with each other about RP quality? Do you guys ever PM people and tell them what you think? If you see people constantly losing or having trouble with how they're handling the whole writing thing, do you reach out so they don't get frustrated / leave?
If we come up with something that we worry may be out of character, we will PM the person and talk it over, but we usually try to stick with what people have used in the past. We do our best to make sure people aren't in feuds they hate, but sometimes it happens, even when you are on creative.

As far as feedback, a lot of it is dependent on regular members of the fed. It used to be done on a feedback for feedback basis. Two guys swap feedback, a way to help each other out. Why feedback has died down, I have no idea. The fed in general is going through a low point and it frustrates me, hence why I came up with this thread, as well as a few others ideas we are working on.

Typically those of us on creative only give feedback in special circumstances. It isn't that we don't want to help, but all of us have lives outside the fed on top of the creative work we do, so its hard to find time, especially when the favor is so rarely returned. From time to time some of us will reach out to people we are working with to offer a helping hand. In the end though, as dickish as it may sound, we can't hold the hand of everyone who is struggling. After KC we have some new ideas we are going to experiment with to increase interaction between creative and normal members, so hang tight until then and keep on trucking.

Going along on the feedback thought, the best way to get some is to do some feedback for other members, for two reasons:

a) If you give them feedback first, they will fell more willing/obligated to return the favor
b) Critiquing other RPs can help you to see what works and what doesn't work in an RP.

Expanding on that second one, obviously if you give Dagger feedback and like his RP, you aren't going to create a gang of people for your character to hang out with. What you can find, however, are things he does with dialogue or prose that work really well and that you can adapt to your character.

I've always been of the mind that critical, not mean-spirited, feedback is one of the most helpful things you can do in the fed, but I've never really expanded on it this much. We all want to become better writers, even if it is just to win a title in the fed. Critiquing your peers is one very easy and very effective way to do that.

Brainstorming RP ideas, had a quick question I can't seem to find a clear answer to on the boards.

What is the general procedure for using other characters and other NPCs most used by another character in RPs? Does it need to be cleared by the handler of said character/NPC?

Also, is there a list of the announce team/WZCW in-character staff somewhere, and do the same rules apply to them?

Here's the NPC roster: http://forums.wrestlezone.com/showthread.php?t=251641

The only thing I saw that's out of date at the moment is that Becky Serra isn't a backstage interviewer anymore. Try to avoid using the GMs except in special situations, but the interviewers are always fair game. Most people don't use the announcers, but I would put them in the same category as the interviewers.

For a character that belongs to someone else, always PM them and get permission first, even if it is a non-speaking role.

In regards to other people's NPC's, it is a must that you contact the handler to ensure that they are happy that you use their character. Most people will be okay with it if you can let them read it before you post it and you use them in good spirit.

WZCW NPC's may be used in certain circumstances but I would definitely steer clear of using commentators outwith their regular occupation. If you're worried about anything your writing just send it to a member of Creative before posting and we can double check.
