Explanation on this Section

I got the idea for this section from Devilish and felt that it was worth trying to implement.

What about a thread section entitled "Living Area" (Or similar), where, say for example, I'd post for Karen. It'd be called "Karen Starring's Home" (or similar again) and every time something happens that's interesting or deserves a reaction, I update I post to it. So maybe she loses a feud, I'd then post to the Home page having her react to it, or invite people round etc. We could alternatively just do a new thread every-time there's something to post (so instead of just one Home thread, you'd have a Home thread for your character every-time something happens) but that might discourage people from posting, especially if it's just a small update on their lives.
The idea is to have a place where your character can react to the things happening in their stories, without necessarily needing other characters to be involved. Unless otherwise stated, threads in this section take place within your character's home/apartment/etc. You can totally have other characters visit yours and interact with them. And you can have your character meet up with or visit others. I think it's better if characters have one thread to themselves, and users post new reactions and thoughts for them has as events play out, and as their character has more matches and stories. So we'll take that approach unless most people say they prefer otherwise. If there's any confusion, please let me know.

Let me ask a question that may throw a wrench into the "I think it's better if characters have one thread to themselves..." bit. What if a character has a tendency to host apartment matches at her home or have house parties? For timeline purposes, obviously this "each character has their own living quarters thread" would be a bit rough for organizing things in an orderly fashion. Would the suggestion be to have the thread be in the "Other Areas" category even though it's technically the same setting?

Yes! This, exactly. Thank you for highlighting that detail. I should have been clear about this in the explanation.
