Should the forum have its own CYOA (Choose Your Own Adventure) section?

You mean like a roleplay?

Or couldn't you just use the stories section?

Not quite. It's more like an interactive story where you write a portion of a story and then give a list of options for the readers to vote on what they want to happen next.

I like that idea!

Here's some CYOAs as an example of the format.

NOTE: There may be some NSFW text content in some of the CYOAs in the link, but this is the format I've learned to use.

Honestly, I'm not voting against this, but I just don't see the point, considering that this is a roleplay forum.

Well say you feel like writing a story, but don't want to write all of it at once, or don't know exactly where to go with it. Then you make a CYOA.

I just don't see why it'd need it's own section. I'm not saying I'm against it, I'm saying my admin level vote says put it in the stories section.

Saf has a point. It still counts as stories, I see no problem with it going in the stories section.
