Although I'm not well aware of how things are in the RPGWW chat, Gaera RPs are very... very... very slow here on the board. And I think there's only like... one of them active.
On the other hand, we have at the moment two Other RPs, which both have nothing to do with our Original Setting or System. This should probably be added for clarification (the fact that people are very much allowed to roleplay whatever they want here, Gaera's certainly not the limit).
I'm all for seeing some new blood here, I just want people to be clear on the fact that this board isn't exactly teeming with activity.

RPGWW is a fully formed board with a variety of RP environments to engage the creativity of its members. Began in 2001 as a small group of spammy individuals, it has grown into its own and matured into a place of RP. The main world, Gaera, is a high fantasy world with multiple continents, races, countries, and is rich in an overall history created by its members.
Philsys is a custom and optional RP system created by RPGWWers to be balanced and fun. Like DnD or many other systems out there that strive to create an even distribution of power, it takes time to learn but it is optional unless an RP is run under Philsys but your GM and boardmates will be happy to help you. If you're a whiz at that kind of thing and you see something 'broken' in our system, put it out there! We want it to be the best that it can be.
RPGWW's goal is foster intelligent creativity, open mindedness, and have plenty of fun doing it. It's evolution is entirely driven by the actions and ideas of its members. There isn't a stratified social hierarchy or us-versus-them dichotomy between moderators and members. Really, the moderators are there to keep the boards organized not to lord over you. Members are encouraged to police themselves and discuss their issues as a part of resolution.
We like to rock to the boat and liked to be rocked. If you're craving a place that will allow you to express yourself and your ideas openly, we're the place to do it. Even if you're idea is not related to our preset worlds or ideas, try it. Make it fun and make it good, we'll dig it. In spite of our long history, newcomers are welcomed and judged solely on either abilities to behave as rational, good folk. If you're looking for a stable board of dedicated individuals this is a good place to start looking.
Maybe advertise the fact that we've got bitchin' good artists, too?
