Starting with next week's show, The Main Event for August 28, back and forth RPs that take place in the locker rooms and/or business district will count toward attendance(as in you won't be marked off for no-showing). However, they will not count toward winning the match. You will still need to write up a separate RP, or even you and your partner working together on a joint RP and one of the persons involved posting it(and it'll count for all team members if it's noted that it's a joint RP).
I really do appreciate the jump in activity in the locker rooms lately, as they can serve to help jumpstart and/or advance storylines. However, it seems some people are taking advantage of them and just being lazy by only making short back and forth posts instead of taking the time to work on an RP. That is why I am making this post now. I will soon add this to the Official rules thread, but wanted to post this here so that nobody has to go through the hassle of signing off that they've read the rules again. ;D
