May I please ask...
What your preferred pronouns are? We've set all of our schemes up so that your preferred pronouns can show up on your posts. You can edit this preference in your profile. If you don't wish to share that is of course okay but I know for many of our members it's a celebration to be able to share this. We will also be editing all of the bio profiles to add this section for in game play.

The schemes have had a slight tidy up to reflect this change too so they are neater to look at. Enjoy!

Another Extension of WIB
Just a reminder that WiB has it's own Discord server. It's a nice extension to the board itself, and a handy place to keep up with the family when you're on the go.

We've made some updates to the server to include more plotting channels, so have fun!

Upcoming Spring Cleaning
The last couple of years have been many different kinds of challenging from all of us, and because of that, the staff at WiB paused our character retirement processes in January 2021 to make life a little easier.

We've decided it's time for a bit of a refresher for 2022 however, and as such, we will soon be doing some spring cleaning of character lists. Any characters who have not been posted since 1 January 2021 will be getting retired.

But don't panic! This isn't happening immediately. You have until 31 March 2022 to assess your character lists and get your affairs in order. For some characters, this may mean they need posts or plots. For others, maybe it's a case of having more characters than time in your life to handle them, characters you no longer need, or characters who quite rudely won't talk to you any more and need some time out. Take the time to figure out what you need to do to be able to maximise the quality of stories you get to tell.

If you decide there are some you'd like to retire, by all means hit that 'Retire' button ahead of time. If you need scene partners or plot partners, hit up the relevant plotting threads on the board or on Discord, and team up to get some action going. Let's get some exciting stories going for 2022!

AI Lists? I Don’t Know Her
Have you ever wondered what it would be like for two people to look a lot alike and it be a total coincidence? Have you ever been told you have a doppelganger somewhere? Are you unconvinced that Katy Perry isn’t a character Zooey Deschanel has been playing for years? Well, this might be good news for you.

We’re doing away with AI lists. Before you ask us if we have gone a bit bananas, there’s a reason for this. AI lists are a specific type of maintenance that we hold ourselves to with the seemingly righteous mission of avoiding lookalikes. However, even in real life, people who never meet might look alike. AI claims can also be a huge hindrance to being comfortable with letting go of or claiming a new character solely because that person belongs to someone else or that person is already taken.

What we hope to achieve with this is a bit more comfort in communicating with others who you’re claiming for a character, but also, allowing you to let your concepts come to life however you see fit. So feel free to bring back that legacy character that happens to look like that other character! Open your mind to the possibilities. But, just so you're aware, if we get submissions for five Chris Hemsworth characters in the same game, we’re probably still going to notice and have questions. Unless they're for a quintuplets plot. If that's the case, crack on.

We're trusting you all to talk with each other like adults and try to account for existing characters. If you think your concept may be similar to someone else's or aren't sure, drop your idea into a plotting thread or into the Discord. We would say that we expect everyone to be respectful and courteous to see that conversation through, but we know you all will be kind to one another and discuss when an overlap occurs. With that in mind, we will monitor to see if this policy needs to be revisited and we're always open to hearing from you all for feedback.
