It’s so bothersome when a new blog of your character shows up, gets popular, and then everyone seems to drop you to go roleplay with them.
I can’t stand it when an RP blog has multiple muses that aren’t in the same fandom. I don’t mind if there’s a thousand muses all huddled on one blog, as long as they’re in the same fandom. If they’re in different, then it’s honestly really annoying to keep up with and having to view a fandom I may not even like a lot. Just make a second blog or a sideblog. It’s not that hard. I normally unfollow those blogs.
I play a very flirty character who often hits on and makes sexual comments to other characters, and sometimes I’m very fearful that people think I’m forcing a ship on them. I often pull back on how much my character flirts because I don’t want others to think I force ships and that’s all I care about. I end up spamming the tags, apologizing for my character and reminding the other mun that he’s just flirty, they don’t have to be a ship.
It bothers me when people do giveaways with “a thread with me” as the main prize, as if roleplaying with that person is a gift to be sought after. If it’s a roleplaying blog, why would someone have to “win” a thread with that person?
People need to understand that giveaway prizes take awhile sometimes to get to. Just like you shouldn’t badger someone for a reply, don’t badger them about getting your won icons or gifs to you. And especially not if it’s a drabble! If they don’t have inspiration, pressuring them won’t help. You should never make them not want to go onto their blog for fear of being confronted with a handful of pushy messages.
I have a friend who’s been promo’ing a lot lately. But now I have an awkward problem: too many of her followers have followed and now I’m overwhelmed by the number of people I’m plotting with! I don’t know how to tell her to stop without sounding pretentious or ungrateful.
Recently I’m really enjoying making small open chats. Only trouble is now I’ve got too many, yet I still keep making new ones.
Small text, formatted text, icons, gif icons, custom pages, edited themes, symbols before replies… who cares? Just do what makes you happy. I’ll respect you so long as you respect me. We’re all just here to have a good time.
I know taking reaction images without asking is a bit of an issue around here, and I have nothing against people adding right-click disabling codes, I just wish people wouldn’t make the pop ups so condescending. I right click to open links in new tabs. I don’t like getting a nastygram saying “Bitch I don’t think so” or “HAHAHA no” when I wasn’t doing anything wrong. Why can they just say “Please do not take any reaction images on this blog. Thank you!” instead?
I saw on a rules page once that someone said they got annoyed when people followed them and then shortly after sent them a message asking to roleplay. I’m sorry but what? Lack of communication is the PROBLEM in this community. And you’re actually annoyed when people take the time to send you a message? There’s no guarentee you’ll see that they’ve followed you. Really, what’s the harm in a “Hi! Would you like to RP with me?” message? Spamming is annoying but what’s the harm of one little message? I don’t get it. It kind of made me not want to rp with them anyway, now.
