If you mean starting another iteration of the Character Development Thread
, you should definitely discuss it here first when more people are around. However, note that Mansion is still open for people to join as they please. It will always be open; bringing a character or two or three to Mansion 900 posts into the thread does not constitute 'hijacking'. Hell, I joined 400 posts in. That's not just because it's a 'plotless' thread- all threads are open to join at any point- except when the thread is starting to wind down -whether there's a plot or not.
Alternatively, if you mean Starting Your Own
, we can't stop you. Nobody owns the concept of the Character Thread, but there's no guarantee that people will participate in it, since there's also the Shared Story Threads.
And, with regards to Character Arena, that exact suggestion has been mentioned by name.
Technically, with regards to whether it's been done yet, the answer is no. But if you read that post and the ensuing discussion about it, assuming your Arena idea is like the previous suggestion, it should be evident as to why it may not work as a viable thread concept in a writing forum.
