Can a scratchpad be added to the general account?
Just a thought I had.  I like using the scratchpad in games to take notes, but there is no feature attached tot he general accounts, so I'm always having to use one of my game scratchpads for 'general' notes.

It's been suggested before, and I'd also still find it handy.

In reply to nauthiz (msg # 2):

So, would this be like a scratchpad everyone in a forum could share, or just a private scratchpad tied to one's account?

(I'm a little tired right now... pardon if I'm a bit thick.)

The request as it has been phrased in the past, was for a duplicate of the "ScratchPad" feature each player gets when they join a game.

However instead of being tied to a specific game, it would be tied to the individual user account and would be accessed via a link somewhere on the main RPoL page.

Yes, exactly what nauthiz said.  Didn't know it had been a request in the forums for so very long already when I made this thread...

This would actually be very helpful, having a "homepage ScratchPad". Not tied to any specific game, and only accessible on the main page.

I've also wished for this more than once. I realize now that it's a planned item, but in the event it reinforces that it's a good idea, I'll also voice my support for it. ^_^

Re: Can a scratchpad be added to the general account?
I wondered at some point whether this was a thing, too, and thought it might be useful to have. Nice place to stash character sheet notes for games that die, so I don't have to use the scratchpad in one of my other games :D.
