  1. Private character notes

    Have a section for players where they can add private notes about their characters. It could be background information, secret subplot ideas, characters or cities they want to remember or more.

    • Blog gone?

      Hi,

      it looks like the blog link at the bottom of the page now takes you to the tumblr homepage, via a redirect.

      • Storium should have an app

        Right now Storium isn't very phone friendly so when I check in on my phone I can barely read what's already on the page let alone what I'm typing. I think if you guys could develop a Storium app it would make being able to check in and make moves on the go much easier from all devices.

        • Narrator Pause Button

          It would be nice to have a way for the Narrator to pause the ability to make moves in a scene until they are ready to allow the action to continue. This way they could pause the scene after someone makes a really disruptive or 'dick' post and then 'resume' once it is straightened out without having the moves continue roughshod along making it impossible to reverse something.

          • ...localize the game for other languages.

            Hi. I'm German, though I'd like to think my English is pretty good. Now, I happen to know a goodly amount of other Germans who enjoy writing, storytelling or role-playing. Not all of them speak English to any appreciable amount but the basic idea of your project would most certainly appeal to them.

            Now I realize that you need to get Storium off the ground first before you can do anything else but I would strongly suggest seeking localization for German and French at the very least. Or barring that, explicitly stating that it's okay to run stories in a…

              • Rich Text Editor

                I'm kind of surprised Storium doesn't have this yet, and it would really speed up posting without having to go back and edit formatting mistakes and such several times. Is this something we can look forward to, including the ability to put coloured text and images into our posts?

                  • Customize Card Orientation

                    Allow narrators to choose between landscape and portrait orientation for card art. This greatly widely art options as well as solving the problem of how/where to align the card type overlay on images.

                    • make it so non members can have more charcters

                      This would make it so more beginner stories would sprout up. We need those. Lots more people would join your site and write stories. You've got a good website that has a chance to be great.

                      • add a way to highlight excellent prose

                        Sometimes some truly excellent prose is written in Storium. It would be nice to flag/highlight/thumbs-up/applaud really top quality work for future readers and or future reference.

                        At present, the indicators of excellent quality writing are the number of followers (stars) and if the story has been featured before. It would be nice to have something more fine-grain.

                        Also, it would be nice for people coming afterwards to leave their applause for well-written sections of a story.

                        • I'd like to be able to save my characters independently of the story they are in.

                          The idea would be that any character I create would be saved on my profile independently of if the story they were created for gets deleted or they get retired.

                          Sometimes you get into a game, it starts nice, but then it dies off and gets deleted. And then... you lose your character? It's pretty unenjoyable.

                          • Maybe having a search boxes

                            We should have a search box, so we can find what we want to roleplay in. Some people (like me) want to find some anime roleplaying, or fandom roleplaying. And we have no idea on how to find it.

                              i run into minor issues from time to time that have nothing to do with how to play storium, which is the only thing it talks about in the Help section. i think it would be extremely helpful if there were an easily accessible FAQ

                              • give notification-triggering @user mentions visually distinct formatting

                                The ability to @ someone in game comments is great, but this feature is not consistent across the site.

                                Would it be possible to make it so that an @ mention which has triggered a notification is somehow visibly distinct from regular text? Changing the font weight or linking to the user's Storium profile (if they're a valid user) would be sufficient I think.

                                • Allow us to 'clean up' our own profiles.

                                  I'd like us to be able to, individually, edit which of our games show up on our profile.

                                  I was mostly concerned with the "Completed Games" list because there are games on that list which, for varied reasons, I do not think I've "earned", if that makes sense. As such, they don't reflect "me" as a writer.

                                  I brought this up on the following thread: https://storium.com/forums#/category/general/thread/409pvw

                                  On there, it was also suggested that there are games on the other lists that would be good to showcase, even if they were suspended, etc.

                                  So not exactly "hiding" our histories, just adding…

                                  • distinguish between inline/block pre/code text

                                    The current markdown processes (A) lines which begin with four spaces, (B) text enclosed by ticks (`text`), and (C) text enclosed by three ticks (```text```) as <pre>.

                                    Could we instead use ` for inline (potentially not fenced/without a background, just plaintext/monospace) and ``` for preformatted blocks? Otherwise, it seems we have three unique bits of syntax that do exactly the same thing.

                                    • Give Narrators the option to put moves in the right order

                                      Naturally players respond on a challenge when they have time. Usually this results in moves that are out of order, interrupting conversations and the like. For the player this isn't much of an issue but I see it turning away readers. Maybe you could give narrators the option to move the moves around the page so that they can happen in the chronological order

                                      • Allow option to name Chapters and Scenes via actual word boxes.

                                        Pretty much what it says, allow the option to name chapters and scenes outside of the main post. People currently do this, so implementing it officially would not be a terrible idea.

                                        • not show completed games in the 'games you are participating in' box.

                                          IMO, if you are participating in games but don't want them on your home screen, they are likely to be slow, on hiatus, continuing but your involvement is complete (say it's in its last scene and you know your character is done). If a game is complete, you are no longer 'participating' in it and those games clutter up the list. It's easy enough to find your completed games from your profile, so please take them out.
