Advice: The fandom that I RP in is very small, and all the people who I roleplay with are stopping one by one. The fandom is dying and it feels like a part of me is dying too. I don't want to stop roleplaying but I feel like I'm going to have to because I'll have nobody to roleplay with.
You didn’t actually ask a question here. As is stated on the guidelines, you have to specifically address what you want advice about before I offer any, because I cannot read your mind and know what aspects of a situation you are asking for a second opinion on. I’m not very comfortable with making stabs in the dark. Please send a follow up regarding what specifically you would like advice on so I can give you a proper response. Please only the submitter reply. Thank you.
It’s pretty annoying when people are passive early on in the plotting process. You give them a choice and they just answer “I’m fine with anything” or “Either, I don’t care!” If I’m giving you the choice that’s the signal that I can’t make up my mind either, otherwise I’ll tell you which I’m leaning towards. Please don’t make me do everything. If I wanted to plot something entirely on my own, I would just write a story and not roleplay it.
Surprise beautiful person! Once you get this, you must put it into at least 8 people’s asks (anonymously) who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing bad will happen, but it is nice to know that someone thinks you’re beautiful inside and out. Help spread Anon love, not hate.
Thank you. Very sweet. I appreciate the thought.
Annoyance: People who make passive aggressive 'Dashboard Commentary' posts are extremely annoying. Especially when they are making fun of someone, or refuse to go talk to the person they are having an issue with.
This isn’t really roleplay related enough. Sorry.
As I keep saying: this is a forum for roleplaying with a center around tumblr, not a forum for tumblr with a center on roleplaying.
If you’re playing a character who is a certain age, only use images of your faceclaim at that age. Even if that actor/actress has been acting for a long time and has been in films a wide range of ages. It messes up the flow when I’m talking to a 22 year old character and someone suddenly uses a reaction picture of their faceclaim at age 12. It’s especially weird if it’s a romantic thread.
When other roleplayers constantly apologize for taking two or three days to do a reply, it makes me feel bad because I usually take a week or longer.
It makes me uncomfortable when people preface asking me to RP with them how nervous they were about asking me.That really shouldn’t be something you should tell someone because not only does it make me feel bad, but it also can sometimes seem like you’re trying to guilt-trip me into RPing with you.
I think using roleplayers to find other roleplayers is a great way of networking. I don’t get why people call it “stealing.”
Even though I have no problem writing starters of any length, I will often request my partner start so I can get a feel for what length of a reply they’re comfortable with. I can write basically from a few lines of dialogue to three or four paragraphs, but it makes me feel less disappointed if I know what they expect to be the length of our writing.
Fingers crossed, folks, but with any luck I should be getting my computer back today! And I might not even have to reload my programs! Woohoo!
