    CSotRP [Discussion and Implementation]

    I want to make one thing very, very clear before we move on. Please read this before posting.

    This is the issue of power, which I'm sure many of you know of. Allow me to present an analogy. I play a lot of a games - everything from the PSP, the DS, PCs, whatever I could afford or download off online, my favorite genre being the RPG/MMO. Games are fun, however, there is one mechanic that you eventually realize. You play games to advance, to acquire new abilities, make more money, get better weapons, all in order to defeat "monsters" better. Eventually, at the end, you become so strong that everything dies in one hit, and then you realize...the journey is over. It was fun when you tried, when you had something to go through, but in the end, it means nothing. And that, I believe, is the central issue in many of the games in this genre, and that games like this most consistently update and grow in order to be successful and keep the players' interest.

    So, that is precisely what it is in RP. I've been a member for on-going nearly four years. I was here when "OP stuff" were submitted, and I must admit, I was caught up in the rush before, but it quickly became mundane. So what exactly is the point if everyone can OHKO everyone? What if someone can cause a whole village to explode in one hit? Where, I ask of you, is the fun in that?

    I can not change you nor your mindset. Only you can change you. If you keep seeing nothing but problems about the RP, or that someone is stronger than you, or that we mods are always trying to prevent you to get the power that you've always wanted, then I can't do anything about it. No one can do anything about it.
    Now, with that placed aside, allow me to attack the central issues, one at a time. One at a time. We can't do everything at once, so we, as the community of the NB RP, need to discuss this over and come to a consensus. I will bring up some issues one by one from the previous thread, and please respond accordingly and in an organized manner on what we all should do.

    I'll be honest, I missed the days where everyone knew each other and everyone could trust each other. I don't like the idea of mods or senseis always being so quiet about things, and you don't like it either. But that is what it is now, and the trust will take very long to build itself up again. Much of the staff have lost faith and to be honest, it's frustrating for me as well. I'll be frank. No one on the staff believes in this thread or that it will bring any changes. Only you can change their thinking.

    Cast aside all biasness for now. All hate. All grudges. And then let us talk. Also, please suggest changes that are possible and reasonable. Not everyone will ever fully agree, much like politics, but we will have to do our best to please the majority.
    ♠ Custom Stuff ♠

    I'm sorry to say, erasing custom stuff is simply not going to happen. Yes, this is coming from someone that owns no Custom Elements, and barely has any Custom Jutsus. It's not like I'm not up for the idea, and even if it happens, I highly doubt I'd submit any Customs, however, as Zero Kelvin said in one post, it'll simply push back the problem and not solve it. Also, having everyone flock to submit stuff and ideas that have already been submitted in the past isn't simply going to go well. There will be much arguing and rage over such a thing, so, let us stop talking about customs and forget about them for now. Remember, things are only important if you make them important.

    I'm also not going to talk about CEs, or CWs, or anything. You can rage or be angry about the rules or such, but it won't change anything at all. I'm sorry. It's not like I'm turning a blind eye to you, but there is simply no way to satisfy everyone with such things. You must learn to let go yourself.
    ♠ Ninja World ♠

    Ninja world is a big issue. Let us not speak of that right now. There were some great things proposed in the other thread, but the less we tackle now, the better.
    1. Training System

    This needs a serious revamp. As Typhon and some other senseis said, it's a rigorous progress, and hardly anything comes out of it. Many people actually end up leaving the RP because of this very reason. I can barely keep up with my training threads, as much time as I've already devoted to them and to be honest, simply asking people to do X jutsu and then Y reply really isn't beneficial for anyone. In the end, all they earn is the right to use jutsus that they probably don't even appreciate or fully understand.

    Do any of you have proposals as to have new RPers "master" jutsus in such a way so that it is appealing, yet not so rigorous for the senseis and the students as well?

    Inch's idea:

    Quote Originally Posted by Inch View Post

If new members of the RP are to stay interested while trying to find someone to teach them the jutsu, something has to be done about this. I do not believe that the current teaching system is effective, and I suggest that the entire process is revamped.

    What I have in mind for the new process is this: Rather than the one on one style of training that sensei and sempai do, make training threads more similar to a classroom or a lecture hall. The sensei would have quite a few students participating in the thread, rather than just one or maybe two. The sensei would make posts explaining and giving details on each technique, and would then ask the students several questions, which would ultimately be up to them. These could include how to counter, description of how you'd perform it, combos you could use it in, etc. Now this is where sempai would come into play. The sensei's sempai would then come into the thread and evaluate the student's responses, telling them if they made mistakes in their descriptions, and making additional comments at their own discression. I would actually suggest allowing a sensei to take on more than one sempai for this system, though I understand if that's not possible. This is somewhat similar to how a lot of professors teach at university, and I think that it could work marvelously here as well.

    2. Bio Ownage

    Another issue brought up. What I propose is that a thread is created and consistently monitored every few months or so of active RPers and owned bios. I will create a thread, and all the active RPers that own personal bios and do not wish for others to create the same thing can post there, and I will compile a list of every character that someone already has a "right" to. However, this thread will be refreshed, say, every three months, and if the person that owns that character is not active in the RP anymore, and does not post back on that thread stating their ownership, then someone else may take it.

    Any takes?
    3. Donating a CJ Tournament

    I posted that thread last night around midnight and went to sleep. I couldn't sleep. In fact, I was tossing and turning and then eventually picked up my PS Vita to play some games...
    Okay, that placed aside, I was thinking much about this thread and then this idea came to me. Donating a CJ tournament.
    How about a tournament is held every month, where participants that enter must select one of their CJs as a "prize". For example, I sign up and state that I'm willing to teach someone my custom jutsu of Facepalm. Excellent.

    I'll give every person that signs up a number, put it into a shuffler, and then pair up random numbers against one another for a fun fight. It can be any type of fight, even 2v2, RP only, canon only, I'll let you guys decide on that, but in the end, the person who loses has to teach the CJ they entered to the other person. Or something like that. I'm trying to keep it entertaining for everyone, but you guys get my gist, yes? That way, everyone has a chance to trade around CJs and have fun.

    Any takes?
    Label your post.
    1.
    2.
    3.
    And your response. I'd like this thread as neat as possible because I want to present these ideas and possibly implement them. Feel free to discuss if necessary, but keep it respectful.

    Re: CSotRP [Discussion and Implementation]

    1) No idea. I try to make sure my students understand the justu in which I'm teaching them, but they choose not to ask questions. Which isn't a good sign. Those are the same people who'll be using a justu wrong. When in fact it isn't the teachers fault. Sometimes its the students. They just want to be able to use the justu, and know nothing about it(I can't blame them though). Like you said in the original post. So to clear it up I have no idea how this could be solved. I suggested elemental shishou's just to help teach newer people. But that idea was shot down. I thought somebody who's qualified could apply to teach 1 element(Which would be their favorite), which could provide more training opportunity's for newer RP'ers. But nope. So overall I got nothing.

    2) Sounds good. And needed. I'd be willing to help.

    3)Again, sounds good. Couldn't hurt to bring a little competition to the exchange of CJ's.

    Re: CSotRP [Discussion and Implementation]

    Damn, just after I finished typing a massive wallie for the other thread, you lock it and make this. <.<

    1. For new members, this is the elephant in the room. Training is a long process, and it gets longer with each jutsu added. If new members of the RP are to stay interested while trying to find someone to teach them the jutsu, something has to be done about this. I do not believe that the current teaching system is effective, and I suggest that the entire process is revamped.

    What I have in mind for the new process is this: Rather than the one on one style of training that sensei and sempai do, make training threads more similar to a classroom or a lecture hall.

This is somewhat similar to how a lot of professors teach at university, and I think that it could work marvelously here as well.

    2. I agree that this needs to be regulated a bit, and suppose that's a good a way as any to do it, though there will likely be issues on the initial implementation of people who already have the same bios.

    3. It's an interesting idea, though I'm not sure what to think about it. If this is implemented, I highly, HIGHLY suggest matching people based on the strength and quality of the custom they are offering up, otherwise most of the greedy members will just put up their lesser 'throwaway' customs, rather than actually putting up something interesting up for grabs.

    Re: CSotRP [Discussion and Implementation]

    1) I don't really have any good idea that i think might work, but a small suggestion maybe? How about, in the training for whatever they are doing, let them ask about any jutsu that is confusing to them, and then you explain that jutsu to the fullest of you extent, showing pictures, counters, proper usage, limits, and other basics. Like the shadow clone jutsu, all you need to say is that you perform a hand seal, and a clone appears somewhere short range of you. the clone can use any of your jutsus, almost any. Unlike you (the real one) they can't take much damage.

    2) Nice idea, i think this is something implemented on some other site i was on, not sure but i think its OPB? I also see problems with this though, unless it can be update every month, not 3 months.


    3)Well now, this is the best one that i like will you make it something that goes on. Also, what you can do is remove the limit for the 6 persons thingy, so it doesn't count to who the person teach, and in their CJ thread, it will say something like "*7th person learn this under CJ tournament rules" get it? cool, also what if the person doesn't want that CJ that they win? like maybe a genjutsu cj, and they don't have any genjutsu training? see the problem there, so i think if the winner don't want it, or can't receive it, the owner should leave it there for grabs. Another idea that could work, is have like a set of 10 CJs for a tourney, created by a mod maybe, just some simple techs. So we could participate in the tourney, and pick them, just like the regular tourneies

    Re: CSotRP [Discussion and Implementation]

    1. This is my personal experience as a Sensei, and I know not all of us have had the same or feel the same way. Just a little disclaimer.

    When I first became a Sensei I was excited about training. I thought it would be fun and rewarding, but things didn't turn out quite like I thought it would. I took on too many students and became swamped with training which made participating in other RP sections very difficult. It actually led to me decreasing my time on the site and my activity declined. So recently I put my training on hiatus to get back in the swing of things, and today I decided to downsize my student pool drastically. I already feel better about it and think it will make things much, much better. But while that's helped me get a better hold of training while leaving time for the rest of the RP, it leaves tons of students teacher-less and stuck in the abyss of looking for a Sensei.

    My suggestion is going to seem a little radical, but, I think it may help streamline things. Make learning the basics (Fire/Earth/Wind/Water/Lightning/Nin/Tai/Gen) accomplished by post count. I think the main issue people have with that idea is that people don't know how to properly use techniques. My question to that is......so what? What's really so bad about someone misusing a technique in a battle and losing because of it? If someone misuses a technique its up to their opponent to call them out on it. When someone is called out on it, they'll learn how to properly use the technique and also learn not to use techniques without first understanding them. This is where a Sensei will come in. If someone is having an issue with a set of techniques, or an element, or just want some help in general they can come to a Sensei and ask for help. Whether this be training in an element, or just general battle training, it would make it so both the student and teach actually want to be teaching, and don't just see it as an obligation.


    2. That seems like it'll work just fine. It kind of just seems logical to have a thread like that.


    3. Personally I'm not a fan of that, though I suppose I could just not join the tournament. Really don't see anything systemically wrong with the idea though so if enough people like it I say go for it.

    Re: CSotRP [Discussion and Implementation]

    1. Missions that uses each jutsu in a different way and on this mission they find scrolls and people that teaches them more on the section of jutsus. Yea disregard this idea it sounds like a video game type of thing to do.

    2. This would be a great idea and this just gave me an idea I suppose to have been making. Newer rpers are wondering how to make a bio and instead of going to multiple threads why not go to that includes everything that is need to know.

    3. The only thing I see wrong with that is, what if a member doesn't jutsus that anyone can use. What if a member has nothing but Sound, certain clan, summon, Rain, or even custom element but still wants to be in the tournament? I still like the idea but I think this is the only small problem no major problem.

    Do I need to have one of
    these?
     

    Re: CSotRP [Discussion and Implementation]

    1.For the training system I personally have tried to take my time in my training, trying to enjoy it and not rush it to get a better understanding. Ive been training in the basic 5 for almost exactly one year now, I personally don't have a problem with it but I know many others will think this is much, much too long. There are two main problems presented in the training system. The understanding and the time. You usually have a short training with low understanding or a long training with a good understanding. The best way to fix this Ive seen I think is Lili's training system, grouping similar jutsu's of the same element together and explaining the overall concept of it. I think the best way would be to have another look at this system and try to better it. Perhaps the Sensei could get the student to perform a few battle moves after each separate concept is explained to see if they understood it correctly and to correct any mistakes. This is just a suggestion though.

    2.I wholly support this idea although I think that the person who originally owned the bio, say they come back, receives the rights back for the bio. This doesn't mean that the new person has to drop their bio only that the rights revert back to the previous owner. It just wouldn't be right if Mugi or Cali didn't own their bios anymore, I couldn't imagine it O.O

    3.Sounds like a good and fair idea to me. I would be glad to participate.

    I opened the other thread just for you. >_>

    Nonetheless, I actually really do like your idea! Something like "online classes", much like how I signed up to learn to program for the Unity Engine.

    How about creating a section just for such a thing? A sensei can open a thread regarding one element, for example, he chooses to take five students for teaching Water, and then they all move over to a thread where he teaches them basics of the water, and then have them "graduate" through a battle, in which they can then claim mastery over water? It'll be much like the final exam for any class.

    The only issues I have with this are timing, organization, and implementation. If a student goes inactive or takes too long to post, then such a problem needs to be addressed somehow. We have a decent start here, but let's all talk and take it further. I'll quote you in the first post.

    I didn't even see his post but I like it. If you and the other mods and admin like why not try it out on some people that have already learned the element or subject you are training in to just see how it goes. I also think that is how the Shisou should do also, give them someone who already learned whatever they are wanting to teach as their test.

    Do any of you have proposals as to have new RPers "master" jutsus in such a way so that it is appealing, yet not so rigorous for the senseis and the students as well?

    Inch's idea:


    2. Bio Ownage

    Another issue brought up. What I propose is that a thread is created and consistently monitored every few months or so of active RPers and owned bios. I will create a thread, and all the active RPers that own personal bios and do not wish for others to create the same thing can post there, and I will compile a list of every character that someone already has a "right" to. However, this thread will be refreshed, say, every three months, and if the person that owns that character is not active in the RP anymore, and does not post back on that thread stating their ownership, then someone else may take it.

    Any takes?
    3. Donating a CJ Tournament

    I posted that thread last night around midnight and went to sleep. I couldn't sleep. In fact, I was tossing and turning and then eventually picked up my PS Vita to play some games...
    Okay, that placed aside, I was thinking much about this thread and then this idea came to me. Donating a CJ tournament.
    How about a tournament is held every month, where participants that enter must select one of their CJs as a "prize". For example, I sign up and state that I'm willing to teach someone my custom jutsu of Facepalm. Excellent.

    I'll give every person that signs up a number, put it into a shuffler, and then pair up random numbers against one another for a fun fight. It can be any type of fight, even 2v2, RP only, canon only, I'll let you guys decide on that, but in the end, the person who loses has to teach the CJ they entered to the other person. Or something like that. I'm trying to keep it entertaining for everyone, but you guys get my gist, yes? That way, everyone has a chance to trade around CJs and have fun.

    Any takes?
    Label your post.
    1.
    2.
    3.
    And your response. I'd like this thread as neat as possible because I want to present these ideas and possibly implement them. Feel free to discuss if necessary, but keep it respectful.


    1. I am behind this for as far as I can see as 100% , this could very well work. And bring back the nostalgia of Naruto when they had classes xD

    2. I am also for this idea. As many people have coveted bios forever. But become inactive while a new and aspiring RP'er, wants a character that they call perfect. This will lead to the easier flow of people coming into the RP, and less getting discouraged.

    3. As with this idea, there is just one little problem that I think has been addressed above. Is the small issue if one does not have customs or has a custom that others can't learn etc. Other than that, the whole idea is a go.

    1) I think Inch's idea can be merged with my idea.

    This would also clean Sensei's VM's up.

    Example:

    Thread Title: Zero Kelvin's Dojo!

    OP: ZK will state what he teaches and how to apply

    Thread Title: Lord of Kaos' Hell House

    OP: LoK will state what he teaches and how to apply

    ---

    Here as someone who like taijutsu, I can decide who I'd prefer to teach me, or maybe if ZK is full, I could go to LoK.

    ---

    Basically like an academy to apply to learn a specific field. Instead of barging on a sensei's wall.

    ---
    Basically the sub-section is subjects which members can choose from. I basically enroll in a field of study there.

    ---

    I think my idea can roll with Inch's.



    ---

    About inactive students: I say each sensei can have their own "Classroom Rules." Maybe I want slow responses, maybe I want fast responses. Again I say, a Skeleton can be put in place here...

    Maybe also have a Quota for senseis. Every sensei must train at least x amount of students a month. This way senseis don't keep their orange name by exploiting loopholes and taking the easy way out.

    Re: CSotRP [Discussion and Implementation]

    2) In regards to the 'issue' of bio ownage, I once again urge the NB Community and Staff to make skins available for Canon biographies. I can't stress how much it'd widen an RP-enthusiast's possibilities in regards to character creation.
    I have Danzo's abilities in high regard, but I don't want to be an old Root Commander. I have much respect for post-Shukaku Gaara, but I'd much rather make my own character, with a personality and appearance of my choice.
    I support your suggestion, but I ask that members be able to fill out an edited version of the bio template and patent whichever character they use as their 'skin'.
    I, for example, would like to have a 'Laura-skin' for my Danzo bio. Laura is the daughter of Hawke, my other character.
    The 'skin' would have no abilities that the canon bio itself can't have. My 'Laura-skin', for example, can't have the Snake and Toad Contract because Danzo can't. She can't have Sound, either. She has the exact same abilities as Danzo; she's simply her own person.

    To avoid this putting stress on the already taxed bio-section, you simply follow the modified version of the bio template and post it in your Custom Jutsu thread. Since you don't change any abilities at all, there shouldn't be a need for a check.
    If, however, it's decided that a check is needed anyway, should this be implemented, I'd gladly do the checkings as to avoid taxing the regular checkers more.

    Modified Template (Bio-creators also have a lot more artistic freedom with this template, as it has no effect on their biographies abilities at all):

    Re: CSotRP [Discussion and Implementation]

    1) The training system is fine as it is, the issue is not in the system, it's in the people in that system. Classes will never work, people become inactive, people start copy pasting each other's work with small rewording, hell if someone disagrees with another person that he's training with, then that thread will turn into spam. I'm 100% AGAINST the idea of revamping the training system. As long as the issue resides in the laziness of some sensei's and the limited "do this and that" techniques, it will also follow in the classes and the same problem will show up again, Sensei's became sensei's knowing what they're getting into, I believe the classes method is a very bad idea for the students, we've all been in classes, there will always be that one who doesn't give a damn, and argues with everyone, ass kissers, to people who criticize how others perform the technique. And the inactivity issue, so how long does someone have to be inactive for the rest to continue their training, I refuse to have some member halt my training just cause he's too lazy to reply to the thread, or having a drama issue and wants to leave NB. If this is to be implemented then there should be a maximum of 48 hours for everyone to reply to the thread, whoever doesn't reply gets kicked out.... take it as the absence method in classes and in Colleges/Universities.

    2) I don't mind that idea actually, it's pretty fair.

    3) I suggested this in Konoha once, and stated in Iwagakure. This actually will make us have more events and tourneys without the fear of someone getting something cannon or anything too often. Though there's one problem I see, what if someone doesn't have CJ's not cause he doesn't wanna submit any, but cause none got accepted. That person will not be a part of that "fun" activity ?. This will make people treat CJ's as bargaining entry fees to a gamble and not as a personal/signature move of them which defeats the whole purpose of a Custom made Jutsu. But I don't think that's a big problem, other than the people having no CJ's won't be having any fun, this idea sounds good and plausible.

    I believe that kinda defeats the purpose of a cannon bio being "cannon", referring to it's existence in the Narutoverse not just by it's abilities but by how it looks. And besides if that was done, people will start wanting Cannon skins on their Custom bio, for example, I want a Mei skin on my bio but I don't want her cannon abilities and I don't wanna take a test for her, I want to get her Sage Mode, or Eig, see what I mean ? Your "Laura-skin" bio is just a custom bio with special cannon abilities so that's kinda like creating a "Skin" for Minato which will obviously let me have the sense of a custom FTG bio. It would be cool and satisfying to have my lawliet use FTG ( as a skin ), but I think cannons should stay cannon and Customs should be customs.

    1. Training is tedious, that is all. And it is very less enjoyable for most people, you will understand if you've been a sensei for a long time. Like I said, a lot of it is do X jutsu, and then Y result. I RP in some of my training threads, so I enjoy it to some extent, however, the training system needs a serious revamp, mainly for the benefit of the senseis as well, which in turn, will benefit the students too. But you need to understand that you can't just kick senseis for being inactive, as little as there are. That would make the RP even more serious than it already as.

    3. I'm thinking about to fix the whole idea of someone not owning CJs to participate in the tournament. Then again, very few people wouldn't have any CJs, since they'd be joining the tournament to acquire in CJs in the first place, so why wouldn't they have submitted some of their own already? Again, this an idea that is still fairly new, so I'd a bit more on it.

    Unfortunately, as much as I agree with your idea and would enjoy to have a Wood bio outside of Yamato or the First Hokage, this needs to be taken to Caliburn. To be honest, he's thought of giving these skin bios as prizes to upcoming tournaments, but your "skin" is of a battle test bio. I wonder if that can somehow be implemented if the user so wishes since you've passed the test and thus, the "right", to utilize that bio.

    Re: CSotRP [Discussion and Implementation]

    1) ive had this discussion with tosen, we where talking about his new training method and how he was going to do it. We had a good discussion and i eventually came up with my own way to train if i ever get the chance. My method has had some though and it accually involves the student doing nothing at all. I know it sounds weird but just hear me out. The set up i had in mine goes a little something like this

    Jutsu name and description:the jutsu you are teaching

    Size of jutsu, speed and time it takes to use:with this it removes any arguments the student may have about the jutsu's usage itself

    Possible scenario's this jutsu can be used in: Sensei or senpai would produce perhaps 1 or two different combo's to show the student how this can be used in an accually battle

    How to counter this jutsu: Sensei or senpai will provide 1 or 2 scenarios on how they could stop/over power this jutsu

    Student now provides own counter and attack: Sensei or senpai makes the student provide a viable counter to this technique and a viable combo to use this attack in

    Any questions about this Jutsu: The student will ask anything thats not covered

    Now comes where people will disagree. "Thats too much work for each jutsu, i dont want to waste that much time training someone". If thats your state of mind then i believe your in it for the benefits. Most sensei take 1 student for each element. Thats 5 students in total. If you want to show someone exactly how things work then i like my method and if i ever become a senpai ill be using it on all my students regardless. Training is suppose to be fun and with that method i reckon(i know) id enjoy using this method to train people, not only will i perhaps come up with new combo's but my student will be sent into the NW with combo's and full knowledge of every technique they have.

    Now comes the second argument. "What if my student is only on his first element?" Simple. Not only are you showing them other jutsu from other elements during your element training, but you are also giving them the ability to think about how they could possibly dodge it with the jutsu they have. Not every jutsu has to counter a jutsu can become a dodge instead. Of coarse each training would differ for each student and sensai/senpai alike. Even if the student had one element cut one part of the training out for now, teach them all the D ranks and then go into combo's nd counters. At the end of the day teaching is about giving as much knowledge and information to the student as you can. If they have the knowledge the arguments stop, and lets face it alot of arguments come from miss use of techniques and lack of knowledge about it thus leading to an insufficent counter.

    Thats all i have to say for the training part.

    2) Bio ownage is to me one of the most messed up things on here. In reality whoever made that bio does not own the character, our rp system about obtaining permission and sht is wrong. Ive always had the same argument"Did you get the animes creators permission to use that character?" No of coarse not thats idiotic, so why do we need permission? In accuall fact we do not own our characters. The only people that own them are the creators of the character itself, not the first person to make it into a bio. If we removed the ability for people to own a bio what would happen really? Alot of single bios users would suddenly have a few more of them running around? Is that a bad thing? i think not. Nothing bad can come from removing peoples ability to own a character. If people complain what are they really complaining about? "I made him first i wanted to be original". What is being original? your character looks different to mine has a different personality but uses all the same jutsu? I dont see the big problem tbh...id vote to abolish peoples ability to own a character its just wrong and un needed. There are plenty of other ways for people to be "original" without owning a bio character.

    I feel like im rambling on this one but i have one more thing to say. When i first went to make a bio i made Grimmjow. I was so happy my bio to me looked awesome and i was ready to start training. Until i got shot down and told "I own him no you cant have him". I gave up on rp after that, i went back to KT and played rp there for another month before making a custom bio. That set me back a month which really sucks but i dont care anymore. This could become a big problem eventually, people wanting originality stopping new members from becoming the personality they wanted to become. Only thing that kept me on the site was KT because frankly Grimmjow was the only character i could see myself Rping as, but alot of people may just leave over that basic fact.

    Ok now i am rambling rofl.

    3) I like this. Id gladly donate a CJ into the mess and fight it out. I dont really have much to say on this because i kinda like the idea, especially 2v2 that'd be awesome haha.

    Ive said everything i think.

    Delta out.

Again, this an idea that is still fairly new, so I'd a bit more on it.
    1) Again the system is not at fault here, there's no set of rules that forbids a sensei from having fun with his students, or have them train in a specific ways. It's the people who choose to train in such a limited way. Yes I do understand that it gets boring eventually and Sensei's lose interest and would just wanna get it over with, but I'm more than sure classes will create chaos. And tell me, how is it any different than regular threads, the way I see it, it's just a way to cut the amount of training threads in the training section. The sensei will still have to answer every question the students have, the Sensei will still need to go over what the students say. So the Sensei will have more fun and give more effort ? what was stopping him in the first place ? his own laziness in most cases and well I'll give it to you, lack of time. And I didn't mean kick the inactive sensei's, kick the students who don't reply in a 48 hour period. IF ofc the classes idea was implemented. Although, will the classes make things more fun ? more interactive ? You know I see a benefit of this if the students themselves don't fuq it up. Some people don't read other people's training threads to see if their questions were answered or if something was suggested or if a technique was discussed. So the classes method will open the door for students to read each other's posts. But again, if this is to be implemented some strict rules should be put for both the Sensei and the Students

    3) Well, a lot of people I know only submit CJ's for a certain KG/ability. They simply don't want to waste their spots on anything else. But at the same time, they still wanna have fun. You can't really force someone to make a CJ that he might not use and waste a spot from his 35 spots just for a chance that he could win another CJ, A CJ that he might've not wanted in the first place. Example, I entered the tourney with my S rank lightning technique, I was hoping that someone I know would make it to the top with his other S rank technique. But somehow, the person who made it to the top has bid on his C rank CJ that I will never use in my life. To me, I didn't have fun nor purpose especially if I lost and had to give him my S rank technique when he put a C rank as a bid.

    *Though this can be fixed through brackets. Those who submit C rank techniques will only fight people who submitted C rank techniques, and so on. And as for the 35 custom limit. Perhaps there can be extra 5-10 OPEN spots where people submit their CJ's that they wanna bet on. What I mean by open, is something changeable. Like you won't be bidding your own actual CJ's, but CJ's that you THOUGHT of and want to bid on them. Though once you give them up to the other person you can't use that CJ. When you gamble you don't really keep your money if you lose do you :P ? so yeah a summary: 5-10 Custom CJ spots made especially for the CJ tourney, where first the user will submit his desired idea for a CJ, then it needs to be checked by a mod for validity and if a person wanted to bid from something of his own CJ's made by himself he can do so, and if he loses he will only have to teach it and will stay in his arsenal, not like those who were made in the 5-10 Cj custom spots of which he can't keep if he loses. Basically it's like bidding your own ideas for a CJ that are yet to belong to you.

    Re: CSotRP [Discussion and Implementation]

    1)Meh, for me it depends on the student and the teacher, I myself am a Ice shishou, when a student shows knwowkdge and enthusiasm to learn and progress I feel more inclined to teach him even better. But also if a student isn't good, and let's say has zero understanding of the element, I will most probably drop him No? No of course no, I will train him and beat the knwowkdge into their skull.
    As for a way to improve it, idk, the classroom suggestion by Inch seems nice. Maybe something different like training three students together, the students will converse upon themselves and try to answer each others question and doubts, then the sensei would come and clear things out.

    2) I like the idea.

    3) Hmm The problems that may concern this have been mentioned above, but a simple solution is that when X beats Y, but X doesn't like the CJ, he can choose to exchange his prize with that of C if C accepts. That way a lot of people would be happy.

    Re: CSotRP [Discussion and Implementation]

    I won't make this long since I don't have much to say.

    1. I'm personally against this idea. The idea of Sensei/Senpai imo is meant to be more of a personal experience, and using likeminded people to get what you want, not sitting in a classroom. When Naruto found out his elemental affinity was Wind he first went to Asuma about it who also specialized in Wind in order to learn more about it, and maybe it should be more like that. If Sensei X has no interest in teaching Earth, then he's going to find it boring and more tedious than if he were teaching say, Water which he finds interesting. Not to mention there's people like myself who don't reply to training after over two months, and they still want me. Bless you sensei-kun~.

    2. Sounds a bit iffy, but I like the idea. How would it work for people who have x bio character but someone else created it before them? I know before Pervy Sage made Natsu someone else had made him and went inactive, does that mean he now "owns" Natsu or what? It's the same case with my own Ryohei.

    Whoever said 1 month for this thing is stupid, I'm sorry but 3 months seems perfectly logical.

    3. Sounds fun. :3

    Re: CSotRP [Discussion and Implementation]

    1. Training system needs complete revamping. The current training system doesn't build any form of relationship between the sensei/sempai and the student. Our training system now is just a case of "Which sensei/sempai can help me complete my training faster?" "Which sensei/sempai doesn't ask a lot of questions?" Also, if you check with many rpers here today, you'll see that the majority did not start and complete a training(elemental or otherwise) with the same person.
    I personally started fire with Riku.. then Kato., then Vision and finished with Better. Water with Shuusai, Drizzy, Kerrah and Nathan. Wind with Dante, Igneel and Lokí. Lightning with Rokusho and Ushiro. Earth with Sharingdork and then Korra. You see the diversity. I know people whose situation is even worse. That is why I and in complete support of Inch and Cookie..'s ideas.

    Here's my idea: We need to bring in the Ninja Academy. Many may say it's a complete waste of time, but I think otherwise. Instead of having a lot of people who have no proper knowledge of how our RPG works bug senseis and sempais for training, we should create something to keep them busy but at the same time still giving them adequate fun needed. This gives senseis and sempais time to train those who have the needed experience to get trained. Something has always bothered me concerning our RP. Why do we learn the basic 5 elements first? If you all recall in the anime, ninjas start their career by learning regular ninjutsu and taijutsu before they progress to the elements. This improves their usage of ninja tools and hand-to-hand combat. Why can't we do that? Genjutsu is of higher level so yes it can still be left till after elements have be completed. Let it be that in the Ninja Academy, people learn regular ninjutsu starting from E ranks and Taijutsu from E ranks. At the beginning of the session, students are admitted and after a period ranging from 1-3 months, those who are worthy are graduated. Those who graduate are paired into groups and put in squads under the care of senseis and their sempais.

    From then on, they become the property of their Sensei and Sempai. This makes work easier for everyone, senseis and sempais especially since they know those who are their core responsibility. This is why I support the creation of sub-sections and what should be done is this. When one becomes a sensei, a sub-section should created in his/her name. Then in that sub-section, the sensei and his sempai(s) create the threads. It could be like this:

    Training Grounds(section)

    Ninja Academy(sub-section 1)
    Ninjutsu Classes(sub-section 1a)
    Iruka's Class(thread 1ai)
    Ibiki's Class(thread 1aii)
    Genma's Class(thread 1aiii)

    Taijutsu Classes(sub-section 1b)
    Mizuki's Class(thread 1bi)
    Ebisu's Class(thread 1bii)
    Shiba's Class(thread 1biii)

    At the end of session:

    Examination Center(sub-section 1c)
    Naruto vs Lee(thread 1ci)
    Sakura vs Ten-Ten(thread 1cii)
    Shino vs Ino(thread 1ciii)

    Graduants proceed to squads:

    [b]Squads[b](sub-section 2)
    Squad 1(sub-section 2a)
    Earth Class with Adachi(thread 2ai)
    Water Class with Shinta(thread 2aii)
    Fire Class with Adachi(thread 2aiii)
    Wind Class with Shinta(thread 2aiv)
    Lightning Class with Adachi(thread 2av)

    Squad 2(sub-section 2b)
    Earth Class with LoK(thread 2bi)
    Water Class with Ciberr(thread 2bii)
    Fire Class with LoK(thread 2biii)
    Wind Class with Ciberr(thread 2biv)
    Lightning Class with LoK(thread 2bv)

    Squad 3(sub-section 2c)
    Earth Class with Darui(thread 2ci)
    Water Class with Better(thread 2cii)
    Fire Class with Darui(thread 2ciii)
    Wind Class with Better(thread 2civ)
    Lightning Class with Darui(thread 2cv)
    etcetera etcetera etcetera . . .

    This is very similar to how it was in the anime but I know many may say it's a long process. But just like Adachi said, we are Role Playing. Hence, it is a game and we all know games have stages. Therefore, these stages have to be completed before advancing to the next stage instead of jumping these stages and then start bugging trainers for training you sincerely have no idea about.

    I hope someone gets what I'm trying to say

    just skimming through, but about the online classes: How will you deal with time zones, real life issues, and what not.

    I'm doing toad training with 3 people a thread, and it's going rather slow (on both sides).

    Re: CSotRP [Discussion and Implementation]

    I. Tell you the truth, I really hate training. The writing and thinking of a "counter" this and a "use this in battle" that is tiresome. I don't mind role-playing, if it helps.

    II. I'm good with a Custom Bio of my own. I don't mind if someone takes my character. Just don't take the name.

    III. Not an owner of Customs, but not something I would per-take in. The idea is just to same as in nothing has really change. I propose a new idea yet same (So nothing really change either). We gamble off our Customs in the Tournament. We need a Custom to enter the Tournament. We bet on ourselves. The winner gets the prize of every Custom summit. Bam!!! Competition. The loser of the Customs are forced to teach the winner the Customs. This happens like once a month or something.

    Re: CSotRP [Discussion and Implementation]

    1. Might sound stupid, but after every 2 ranks, or something like that, a sensei and a sensei could have a skype session? I think the main reason some people don't want to ask questions is because it'll slow down their training
    2. It sounds good, Im 100% behind it
    3. Another good one, Id get behind this. As soon as that guy Xylon approves my customs >.<

    Re: CSotRP [Discussion and Implementation]

    1) Why don't Sensei's just keep on passing down Sempai-ship? Like for example someone who can strictly teach the Basic 5 can eventually teach something else and a student that they have taught can eventually become their Sempai... Kind of like a heritage system.

    2) Great idea. As I wouldn't want people to have a Goku bio.

    3) Doesn't attain to me as CJ's don't really appeal to me yet.

    Re: CSotRP [Discussion and Implementation]

    Finally made it to my laptop to actually type this up. I started on the phone, but it's a pain in the ass on there. >_>' I apologize for the wallie ahead of time.

    1. A type of Ninja Academy would be ideal here, if Inch's idea is to work, but before I speak on that as a whole, let me bring up a smaller, similar suggestion I had. I recently suggest a suggestion similar to this in the sensei group, though it's a bit more radical than this. My idea was to have each Sensei who specialize in certain fields (as when we apply for the position, it tells us to list things we specialize in) to teach the fields they specialize in. I, for example, specialize in Water, Earth, and Lightning Releases, and the subfields of Taijutsu and NB Taijutsu. I know how to use each of the five elemental releases effectively, though I am very proficient with the three aforementioned elements. I'm more comfortable teaching these over Wind and Fire, though I admit I am learning more about both these releases everyday. There are some sensei who have a greater understanding of certain elements than other sensei, this is well known amongst rp members as when issues over the usage of certain elements and jutsus are used, most times those specialized sensei are the ones contacted for their input on this. My suggestion was to have Sensei who specialize in certain elements teach only those fields. Now before you go ape shit over this, think about it.

    Let's say we have 10 Sensei, each taking on 10 new students, 2 in each element. That's all fine and dandy, but every Sensei has different teaching methods and though we each should have a mastery of the basic five elements, we can't pretend like we don't have a preferred element to teach as we may know more about that element or are just simply better at using/explaining the element. Those 10 Sensei, instead of having 10 multi-elemental students, would take on 10 of a certain element, or 5 of one element, and 5 of the next element. With the first method I said, it would be, in total, 10 fire students, 10 water, 10 earth etc etc. With the new method, it would be 10 fire students, 10 water, 10 earth, etc etc. So what ultimately changes? By having sensei who specialize in the elements be the main teachers of it, so to speak, we'd ensure that most new members learning are able to learn each element from those who fully understand it and can give detailed opinions on jutsus, and techniques and just general information that they might not have learned from another Sensei who specialized in an opposite element. It doesn't change much, though I will not lie, I'd be hella more interested in teaching an element I like than one I have to teach due to my Sensei title. Like when Naruto discovered his elemental affinity and went to Asuma for further help in developing it, or Sasuke learned from Kakashi on how to better use his lightning abilities.

    Now, I'm getting closer to addressing Inch's idea, but first, as I said earlier, a form of Ninja Academy is needed. This could be in the form of a revamping of the teaching system that Inch suggested, or even like the NB Battle Academy thread that Scary Yamato made for newer members that for some reason was deleted or moved to the hidden sections ( ===> http://narutobase.net/forums/showthread.php?t=58708). If I remember right, he had sections for a lot of the basics, including movement, ninja tools, explaining Rei's Rules and Restrictions, and more. If even this thread was bought back and actually used, a lot of problems could be fixed regarding training and the RP in general. His next post was due to be on the Time-frame, and quite frankly, that shit is long overdue. I can't tell you how many fights I've had to check in the NW for timeframe issues and other shit that could be overlooked, but that's neither here nor there. The point being, that an Academy, or really, a thread detailing certain things in depth will help A LOT. A post about timeframe, taijutsu in general, the different elemental releases (though these don't have to be covered in depth as that's the point of having Sensei anyway lol), Elemental KG, and other things that every ninja should know that isn't really covered in elemental training could be included. Going over this thread and the posts that may be related to whatever training is in session could be a great start to training and once training is over, can work as a great refresher for people.

    Now, in regards to Inch's idea, if this is to work, in any form or shape, it will first require patience from the students. Students change their teachers very frequently here, in a rush to get the basics mastered. If you aren't replying fast enough, bam, you're replaced. You are gone for a few days or week, bam, you get replaced. You end up going to a rock concert and get so shitfaced, you're near comatose for a few days and can't reply due to pain from kidney poisoning, bam, you're replaced. Well, maybe not in the case of the last one, but you get the point. If Naruto and the rest of Team 7 changed Senseis because Kakashi was always late and things, well, the series would not progress the way it is now. There'd be no Sasuke and Naruto rivalry as they likely wouldn't be around one another enough to push the other to victory. Students are anxious to fight, which I understand fully. But they should stick with one teacher the entire process of learning an element as many senseis/sempais have different methods to teaching. You don't want to have a ninja with 4 different methods of training in one element, leading to a sometimes counterproductive learning of the element.

    Now, let's assume that my Ninja Academy idea is evolved from a thread to a reworking of the training grounds, in conjunction with Inch's idea (as that is the only way I could see it working, having an actual academy to teach in). I'll use a default ninja name here to show how he and his 'class' would go through the academy and subsequent things.

    Naruto and the rest of the Konoha 11 enter in the Academy at Genin rank (obviously it happened the other way around in the manga/anime but due to the post count shit, we can't really do much unless it is ultimately changed). They begin their ninjutsu training, learning them and basic Taijutsu of up to C rank while being in the Academy. They also learn the fundamentals behind roleplaying, such as the dreaded timeframe discussion, freeform taijutsu, weaponry usage, etc etc. Upon reaching chuunin rank and learning Taijutsu and Ninjutsu, they take a small test (generic test really, asking what is taijutsu, how to use certain ninja tools, blah blah blah and the chakra paper test included) to better assess what their elemental affinities are because at this point, Chuunin have two. Then, we have to 'graduate' from the Academy and move on to being eligible to join in the NW roleplay and starting elemental ninjutsu training in a newer...school, so to speak, under their elemental Sensei. I say we make this, starting in taijutsu and ninjutsu training a prerequisite for learning elements, because learning the elements and then receiving taijutsu and ninjutsu training is very backwards. You're supposed to learn basic ninjutsu before elemental ninjutsu. It's like riding a Harley before you get on a bicycle with training wheels. Very backwards, eh?

    Upon 'graduating', the students are assigned a Sensei, whom they stay with until their elemental training is done. Now this is where it gets iffy, because of timezones differences, real life issues, and general relationships between the teacher and students. Some students may not be readily able to give replies within the time that the teachers want and vise versa. My solution? Have Sensei's and Sempai's teach jointly, instead of just allowing them to take on their own students. They could still do so, yes, but say the Sensei isn't able to make daily replies or quick replies every few days. The sempai could drop in, point out whatever flaws may or may not be present, and advance the training a few posts until the sensei is able to reply again. This will ultimately lead to a closer relationship between the student, sempai, and sensei. This way, each sensei could still have their specialized method of training while simulatenously allowing some basic structure to the training system. Going back to my original idea (first and second paragraph), once the Konoha 11 (12 counting Sasuke) students 'graduate' or are allowed the chance to learn elemental releases, the ones with elemental releases are grouped together in a thread. Let's just say there are 5 sensei's who specialize in fire. These six senseis would then divide the list of 12, each taking an even number on, in this case 2 apiece. They would teach those 2 students the elemental releases in their own methods and once finished with what they can learn at their rank, they undertake a small test (battle test or whatever last task the sensei wants them to complete) in which the sensei deems that the students have actually learned things instead of just replying to gain each element. This would essentially make it so that students who aren't demonstrating that they are learning and are just replying to jutsus are held back until they show they understand what they are learning and show actual knowledge in the field. Once the test is completed, the students are basically cycled on to the next Sensei who specialize in their secondary element and so on and so forth until mastery of the five is completed.

    For this to work as smoothly as possible, I URGE moderators to consider abolishing the post count promotion system as it just leads to unnecessary spamming. The students would be promoted through training, learning one element completely before starting on another. Through this, students would likely master an element faster, Sensei's would have less threads to manage, and overall, a sense of actual roleplaying might arise.

    I think I might have rambled on and lost track of my main goal with this post and might have even contradicted myself a few times here and even might have suggested some very idiotic goals, but if you tl;dr anything from this let it be this: We need a Ninja Academy or at the very least, a thread to fully explain some of the things that cause many problems due to poor understanding and knowledge. Bring back SY's Battle Academy thread. O__O My post is sketchy here and there after re-reading it but my main issues with the RP lie within the NW and battling in general lol

    Re: CSotRP [Discussion and Implementation]

    1. I actually had an idea regarding this, it would be beneficial to perhaps revamp the shishou system to allow certain remarkable people to train anything, be it a KG an element or even something like rain or sound, right down to ninjutsu or taijutsu, but they would only be able to be a shishou in one thing, but the idea would be able to make a lot of people a shishou in certain things, cutting down on the workload for sensei and sempai and giving these shishou the ability to practice training styles.

    2. I believe your idea is spot on, a lot of people don't just pick a random character to RP as, they want a character they can feel at home with, for some of us like myself that is a canon bio, a restricted one that we go to great lengths to call our own, but with some it's a custom one that has been taken by an inactive oldie, and no amount of testing in the world can get them the bio they want.....Is that fair?

    3. This is the one i found the most interesting to be honest, and let me offer my full support on this by suggesting that i will speak with Xylon regarding this and create the first one with a twist, it will be a Dragon slayer tournament, and the winner of said tournament will gain permission to become a part of the dragon slayer group, given permission to post DS customs in a free element of there choosing.
