[ooc] How's My Driving?

Confession time! I'm not perfect. I know, I know, it's hard to believe, but I have been known on occasion to be less than impressive. Lmao no, totally kidding, I'm not even going to pretend I'm anywhere near perfect, which is why this is your generic How's My Driving post for Claire. If you see me doing anything that you don't think syncs up with how you view Claire Bennet, let me know, and I'll either explain my reasoning or fix it right away.

Questions, comments, concerns, all of it's welcome. I do ask that you try to provide specific thread reference so I can see myself in action and apply your constructive criticism better. I'm turning anonymous commenting on, but I'll warn you right now that I'm leaving IP logging on so that if anyone trolls my journal and/or HMD, I can take care of it. I promise I won't check if you just leave concrit. ♥ It's not the person who matters, it's the validity of what they've got to say.

And, mmm, I think that covers everything. Go crazy.

You should watch how many areas you skip as you move Claire around in Damned. The string of posts you just put up probably has too much skipping on the way out of the kitchen (not on the way in), and you also skipped posting the bathrooms and the pantry on the second floor even though you had her in them.

Too much skipping is against the rules, and everywhere your character goes should be posted, since players whose threads go on after the end of NS can't post new locations. You're only supposed to skip 1-2 areas in places your character is very familiar with (the patient blocks, Main West, etc.), and areas like the patio- places where people can be attacked- aren't really a good choice to rush through by rapid posting. It doesn't allow for the NPC mods for those areas to spring a random attack, should they choose to do so.

It looks like you were trying to make it less of a hassle to move around, and to avoid making too many top posts. That's understandable, but be careful you don't break the rules in the process. It's not a big deal, but I thought I should mention it anyways because you could eventually get in trouble.

I appreciate that you dropped this! I'm always really uncertain on how much I can skip so I've honestly avoided skipping anything at all with her until this most recent nightshift because I never how much or how little I'm allowed to and -- yeah, with that big moving post, it was because I didn't want to spam up the comm with a million top posts that people probably didn't want on their f-lists, and I also didn't want to write one sentence moving posts about her backtracking through certain areas. :( Lmao which may have been a bad decision.

So, thank you! Court told me once that I could probably get away with skipping every other hallway or something to that end so I'll probably try and stick to that in the future.

On the note of NPC mods who spring random attacks, I had an attack planned with another NS only character which is why I wasn't worried about missing out on one of those. Because that was also an apprehension of mine sobs. :( So I'm actually really glad you dropped this comment because it'll make me listen better to that in the future.

So, thank you! ♥ And I will definitely keep it in mind for future moving during nightshifts.
