Talk:Wolf roleplay forums
I transwikied this thing off Wikipedia (Wolf Roleplaying) because I wanted to save something cute and fluffy and bushy from the big mean notability-totin' machine, not that there's anything wrong with Wikipedia's policies but sometimes cute and bushy-tailed animals may get flattened, and that's not soft and cute and fluffy at all. =)
Also, another reason is that I believe wolf roleplay forums are a topic worth exploring; I've run into a few of these before, and they seem like a popular enough concept. So please, do keep and expand this. The article probably needs some examples of these though... --wwwwolf (barks/growls) 18:53, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
A lot of work done
Hello! I tried to clean up this article a bit. I wikified the article and adding content in areas that were a little scarce. I also added some alternate opinions regarding the different roleplaying 'levels', since there is no consensus on what denotes one roleplayer from another. Ie, length is not the only factor that determines one's level!
I also cleaned up the examples and re-organized them a bit. They are now organized more or less into two categories: realistic and fantasy. I removed a few inactive, dead, or non-notable sites from the list to keep it compact.
It might be best to restrict the examples to a few long-running, notable sites in the roleplaying community. I added 'Souls, a wolf and werewolf rpg that's been running for eight years. It's one of the many that migrated from ezboard to IPB. I remember a lot of wolf rpg's that switched from ezboard to IF, but 'Souls switched over to IPB.
Two others that could possibly be added are Myth V - The Shadow of Let, a fantasy wolf rpg that has been around since 2004. Wild Wolf Society has been around, on and off, since 2000, and is one of the oldest realistic wolf roleplaying games.
Some of the other older wolf rpg's have since closed down -- these three are the longer-running of the wolf rpgs I can think of.
I also redid the lead-in and organized the page into different sections.
I also made a new topic, Forum-Based Roleplaying, as I noticed a lot of what I was adding to the "Platforms" section was not directly related to wolf roleplaying.
"Creating a wolf roleplay" isn't exactly necessary to the understanding of wolf roleplaying, and could possibly be removed. I left it there for now, but if someone else thinks it could be removed, I think it would be warranted.
Anyways, looking forward to finding some people who are interested in helping me find more sources for this, or are just interested in expanding on this article.

Can someone speak to whether Wolf roleplaying forum is a distinct enough genre that it would make sense to have that as a category? (Fitting, I would think, as a subcategory to Category:Animal multiplayer worlds and Category:Roleplaying forums.) -- Sine 15:06, 9 February 2012 (EST)
