I didn't wholly grok what you were suggesting before you provided the visual clarification. Thank you for that.SpiteAndMalice wrote:The realm creation guide could be changed on the basis of the features we already have. We have a feature which allows the naming of realms as Lore or NonLore:
The idea certainly does open up some possibilities. A "(Lore)" or "(NonLore)" appellation by themselves might not be a best approach, as there are criteria not directly related to Lore which I understand some wish to sidestep, too. It might be simpler to consider realms which add "(Not Moderated)" or "(Not Moderator Approved)" or "(Not Sanctioned)" or somesuch agreed label if they make no pretense to conforming to the Realm Creation guide. And this label should perhaps precede the realm name rather than append it.
In any event, realms which do not conform with Snapshot's vision for their game should be clearly labeled as not conforming so that new players to the game do confuse what they're selecting with something that Snapshot envisioned for them. And any realm without such an appellation could be considered to conform with the vision as a default. Also, such a labeling scheme would safely include the existing realms, all of which should already conform to current Realm Creation Guide standards and thereby not need a special appellation. Thus, the default would remain as it is, while some exceptions might be allowed for those who do not wish to conform to the Realm Creation Guide.
All that said, I'm not endorsing this idea. It's just something to consider.
