(scottish accent) It's really good.
In short, I can review homebound with this clip;
https://youtu.be/okDVsWlmgpA?t=5

In long, let me summarize the pros and cons of the server, but before I do that allow me to address a review that was posted earlier.

Homebound is not a combat oriented server. A vast majority of the roleplays we get going on daily do not involve any combat. One might mistake this server as a combat server based on the fact that most of the people who have joined recently come from high-"skill" combat rp backgrounds, but Homebound to my knowledge has never been and will never be a combat focused server. The previous review (which is now deleted) was written in a spur of the moment emotional moment from someone who is well known in the community as having a lot of emotional moments right before they left the server.

PROS:
- Active community, we generally get about 40 different active roleplays per day, with a lot of channels being used for various purposes. A lot of people are very happy with having people join in, even if they're brand new.

- Active, mostly friendly staff. I can't attest to my own politeness, but my co-workers are generally very kind, polite and friendly. Additionally, the staff _generally_ know what they're doing, but there are a few in the team who I personally believe should be reviewed more critically on their position on the staff team.

- With the new staff team, a LOT more attention has been paid towards balancing abilities both for combat and for non-combat. We saw this as a necessary step to promote a nontoxic roleplay environment where sheets are followed more closely.

- The rules are generally non-vague, and while a few critical rules such as metagaming are not present, they're very rarely used to abuse people.

- The owner is very savvy when it comes to staff affairs, being very kind with the less experienced admins while flat up not tolerating abuse. There were two people who were highly abusive with their admin priveledges - they are gone now. The owner is also VERY polite, kind, friendly and generally nice to be around. Her very presence makes me less toxic. Eugh.

- The server's community is very tolerant towards all sorts of roleplayers, from people who don't have the best grammar in the world to put it lightly all the way up to people who would honestly be better off writing novels for money.

CONS:

- As mentioned previously, some in the staff team are very uhhhh... lackluster. There have been recent cases of staff submitting op as hell characters, allowing through overtuned overpowered characters without a proper critical analysis and at other times staff failing to enforce rules on clear violations. However, these make up a minority of the staff team and generally do not hinder everybody else.

- Being a generally "squishy" and friendly community, drama hits a lot harder than it does in other circles, causing much more of a ruckus while also meaning that people in the server get upset a lot easier than in most other roleplay communities. This can lead to outbursts such as the one seen in the previous review, as well as some community members leaving just because someone said something mildly passive aggressive.

- There are two groups in the server that come from "high skill" CRP backgrounds, one of these groups specifically targets overtuned, overpowered characters and brings them down using teamwork, while the other CRP group literally just does random acts of terrorism and is edging closer towards RAing people. The latter ("The Primrodials") is currently being dealt with by the former ("Section Fifteen").

It goes without saying that high skill CRPrs are scary, and because the latter group goes after villains generally, people have been hesitant to play villains, though I personally do not see what the worry is - if you're good at covering your tracks, you're fine.

Final verdict:
Very good server, good staff team (take with a pinch of salt as I am staff), good owner, limited only by the owner's tolerance to bullshit.

:thumbs_up:

It was good
This server back in late March was wonderful, however the community came to be not as nice as it previously was. Some of the staff are just plain ignorant and don't do their job. There are very few random disasters. And they ignore user suggestions much of the time. But upsides to this server are; this server is always active, as well a few of the admins are good at their job, know what they're doing, etc etc

One of the best servers I’ve been in so far
I love the staff, the members, and the creativity of the members so far. I havn’t been around too terribly long but everyone goes through their rough patches but this server gets through them and grows into something better :D
I’d say give this server a try! You might just enjoy it ^w^

Fun times but more active members would be great
The place is fun and even as staff things can be interesting for the normal roleplayer though helping people out can be tiring sometimes we do it to the best of our ability so come on down to join and people can sometimes be jackasses who hang out in their own little world
