Oh whoops! Sorry about that!

Okay, I fixed it.
In this world there are two types of people my friend.

Those with loaded guns and those who dig.

This is clarification for Legotron and anyone else looking to start a neighborhood.
After some chatter with Housefox, we came to some conclusions about neighborhood creation, specifically for the people creating it.
1. If you aren't going to be involved in the Roleplay of a neighborhood, than you shouldn't be part of the decision making process. You can throw out any ideas you have, but I'm not going to count people who aren't going to play as players to start a new neighborhood and I'm not going to allow you to have any sway in decisions about the new neighborhood.
2. If you want to play minor characters, THAT STILL COUNTS AS PLAYING, though I'd probably want to avoid too many people doing that, as there need to be main characters to move things along.
3. If you don't have time to post at the rate that most people do, you can start a speed-limited neighborhood where players are told to expect to wait a certain amount of time, like a week, for others to post. This has been done multiple times.
4. If you want to be GM of a neighborhood that you don't play major characters in, I'm probably going to say no, but it's open for debate.

@Lego: First thing to do (aside from getting a mod's permission) is to post about it here and see how many people are interested. Once you get 6 or so players you'll probably be allowed to actually create OOC and IC threads for it.

okay.
i already posted my neighborhood a while back but that was before it was clarified about playing in the neighborhood you make and stuff like that so im gonna repost it here:
Legotron123 wrote: So here's my neighborhood:
Toskey "geekville" bay
Tags: drama comedy scifi magic fantasy tvtropes superhero some comic book style fighting
A secret town in northern Michigan, where pop-culture geeks and nerds alike come together to enjoy the dual scifi-fantasy nature of the town. The bay is a perfect curve with a bridge leading to a medium sized island on the north side. The island is home to the mansions of some of the richer nerds and geeks. Because they don't want people to find out about the town, no large corporations or store chains are in the town. Instead there is a local grocer and a family run comic shop that the residents buy all their pop-culture merchandise from. There is a Exetremly large natural hedge maze behind the town that's always shift depending on who's in it. It can lead to two places. The first is the town scifi station where it's VR simulator and dimensional portal are housed. The second leads to a pool of pure magic which seeps out into the town through underground rivers. However only the good-hearted can reach the pool, though that hasn't stopped the mean-hearted from trying. Recently a incident involving the dimensional portal has caused a eldritch abomination to escape into the dark forests to the south of the town. He frequently sends monsters to the town to try and find some of the magic rivers so he can summon villains from across the multiverse to help him conquer every dimension on by one. Some of the nerds and pets use technology and magic to fight back and prevent him from finding the rivers.
Rule Edits: the limit on special stats is moved from 42 to 46
Villain RP is limited to 3 and is on a first come first serve basis.
its a comic bookie, super hero style world.
there would be only three main villans and 4 main heros, with minor and guest charecter sometimes appearing in the fights.
if this gets made i'd play i minor character who switches sides depending on his mode, but never acts as a double agent for anyone.
sooooooooooooooooo.......... anyone wanna join?

Um... time? You kinda just posted the description.
I don't really have a set time limit, or even a real target number of players. I just need to see that there's enough characters being thrown in for the neighborhood to stand on its own before I let you make it, otherwise there'd be a pile of abandoned neighborhoods with only a few pages of a few characters in them...
I really want people to enjoy something I made.

Understandable, but a neighborhood is really the product of the actions of the players. If you want to feel "wanted", set up something that you can be involved in and see if you can carry it for a while...

That's the wrong question.

The right question is "Who wants to play in it?" followed by "Post your characters here."

Then see how many answers you get. That's what I did for "17th Century Fox".

However, I have a bad news to tell those that wait on me - it might take at least a day or too to reach my PC so I can get to posting, due to a car accident (I won't give details in order to avoid any offences.). Worry not, no man or animal were harmed. I'll try to respond in the little time I have here. Take care people!

Re: Pet Friendly: Main OOC

As a Marvel fan myself, I am interested in this superhero stuff... But where's the OOC thread for it? Not to mention that I am still a bit confused about the mechanisms... For example, are the pets the only superpowered ones, or are humans as well? In this case, how do social and legal consequences work? It's hard for a pet to be such when he/she has the strength of the Hulk or is heavily armored. Are superpowered animals capable of reproducing successfully, so to breed a whole new species? How *does* damage control wok -I mean, when a couple of guys fight each other, they could easily (according to the power level) demolish houses, cars, blocks, half of the neighborhood... Does this mean the humans got an army to track and hunt superpowered animals and thus create a third front?
Ok ok, I'm sorry for overthinking it, but, to paraphrase Stan Lee, with great powers come great problems. I think that we need a brain trust to organize the fundamentals of a place unique in its genre...

Unless, Legotron, you want a slapstick comedy place, where you have powers and pet status WITHOUT any implications or explanations. In this case, let's say, this neighborhood is made for retired superheroes and their wondrous pet sidekicks engaged in their comedic daily routine, only with paranormal added, while some pet could be the result of an experiment performed by a mad scientist who created a zombie cat, or the dog who was mutated by his radioactive master...things like this.

yes I know, and it's just a selected *few* of them. I should've added that, *despite* me being an ol' Marvel fan, I am more oriented toward a 'Top 10' scenario -and this neighborhood heavily implies one, whether it's intentional or not.

Solution 2, 'the slapstick power' will instead allow the presence of powers augmenting the 'daily life' situation with special effects added to comedy.

As to the OOC thread, Lego hasn't made that yet as you need sufficient interest in the RP for a mod to give permission for that. So for now, character sheets will go here, in the main OOC. As to the rest, Lego will have to answer that.

.........that's a lot of questions. I think I can answer them.
1) both
2)I'm not sure what you mean by that so I'm just gonna say that they have secret identities like batman or Spider-Man or other heros like that.
3)lets just say its like dragon ball z where they can hide their powers.
4)yes but I prefer not to think about reproducing since I find what goes on during the "sessions" disgusting.
5) one of the magic users would use a repair spell or something like that.
6) no the army has nothing to do with what goes on in the town.
7) I'm not sure how they came to treating pets as such when their just as smart as humans but If the pets are okay we can save the logic issues for later
8)most of the heros weren't heros before the villains came and they just got luckie enough to get powers before the villains could do too much harm.
9)it's really just ment to be a superhero style roleplay that can be both dramatic and comedic.
