Handling multiple threads at the same time w/ same character

How do you handle your characters participating in multiple threads at the same time? I mean, what if you character died in one of the threads? What the hell happens to him in the other thread, lol? Very confusing. :confused:

Except for certain cases, your character cannot be killed without your permission. :)

As for your question, you may refer to this: Timestamping.

Notice: I will not be available for modding in the foreseeable future until I've cleared up my backlog of Miz stuff (PC and ST-wise). Hopefully, it's a temporary thing, but we'll see. I will still grade your threads, however.

Ah, well, I guess that makes sense. I thought there might be some secret to it but I guess all it requires is some planning. :)

And it's Acanthus, btw, I was just too lazy to logout of this account and login to the other one. :P

If your PC dies in a thread on the 28th, and you've already started a thread on the 60th of the same season, that 60th thread becomes 'null' and it either has to be deleted or your posts have to be altered... meaning you are now a ghost or you selectively take out your PC's participation in them and let the other players rewrite.

Fortunately this doesn't happen often.

Mostly, look at people's thread lists in their CS's. Here's my PC's CS and note at the bottom where the thread list is, there's a Season date.. then I start a list of threads I have going on in that season in order .... etc.
