Before I begin, let me make it clear this is referring to the acceptance of applications for characters (after an RPG is already formed/established). Just about all the RPGs function the same way, however some of the applications and what they require are different. One thing that has seemed to have been an issue and brought up a few times in general have been reserves, but that is not the main thing driving me to present this idea. Something occurred in the beginning of the DC RPG's latest Season between SuperFerret and Red X that was a very interesting idea: they both wanted to apply for Deathstroke, and decided they would both apply and then "we" (the other players in the RPG) would "vote" on the better application. What if the RPGs were to convert to a similar/different method when it comes to approving players? A few of the following scenarios came to mind: - When a new Season or RPG is formed, give the players a week to apply for anyone they want but do not approve until the week is over. This way, if 3 people apply for like Superman (for example), the way it is decided by the GM and AGMs would be to pick the best application out of those three (stuff like the sample would be most crucial). - Or, you can go with the SF/X idea I revealed earlier. Although, it would change and be more like the idea above (not approving until the week is over). The main difference? The players would vote. Now, I'm not trying to suggest removing power from the GMs or AGms or anything, it is just an idea. In general, this could make the application process a lot more meaningful, and perhaps make some people take it more serious, thus removing any people not up to the task at hand.
