My opinions matter.

If I'm not agreeing with you or doing it your way. This doesn't mean I'm being difficult, trying to cause an argument, or am wrong in any way. It's just I don't actually have to agree with you or have my characters/plots go the way you want them to.

If my character is connected to your character and it's a major plot development for my character, I'll give you a heads up. This isn't asking for permission. It's being a good player. It's just letting you know what's going to happen. If you have negative opinions about the plot, I understand but please understand that my characters are for my enjoyment. I dont want to be made to feel bad about something I want to do just because you have a problem with it.

1. y'all are just control freaks
2. it's really obvious sometimes when white people are playing black people on this server.

i feel like there's no point to rping unless you already have a clique in the game. it's so imposssible to get romance or even friendship lines that the other person actually wants to keep unless you're 'in'. you can't just join a game and get lines anymore, even if you ask for them or offer them.

I also just feel like such a failure lately. I can't get lines. I can't play my characters properly. RP is pretty much my only escape and I'm shit at it compared to a lot of people out there.

Sorry to post so close together, but damn... This is getting out of hand and I don't know how to get a handle on it.

[info]itsjustthatway in [info]rpvents

I understand having a comfort zone in characters. I get it.

But holy redundant characters, Batman. I honestly feel like I'm interacting with the same character no matter who responds.

It would be different if some of them were written well, but the ones that are so painfully OOC just make it even worse.

And I realize how catty this might sound, but gosh darn.

separate rants.

You don't care about me at all.

And you, I'm not reminding you of every tag you owe. I'm tired of holding hands. Play your character or don't. If it ends, then it ends.

Communication people, that's literally all it takes to make me happy. I'm not putting up with inconsiderate people anymore.if you're busy, fine just let me know. Takes two seconds for people to send a message these days.

I wish there was an app writing service. Someone to take what I want and turn it into what I need. I just want to write the character but when I sit down to do the app, I just delete everything

Self vent. I thought I was well past this, and randomly my brain decides to make me dream about past RP sadness and loss so I wake up with the weight of memories on my shoulders. I know this is just a hobby, but I'm not sure hobbies are supposed to haunt you. Or maybe I'm being maudlin.

it's been over two years and I still have nightmares about modding that gpsl.

Customs are fun and all, I do love gif bombing and funny stuff is also awesome, but why does no one write anymore? I'm definitely going to stop starting threads on my own and linking someone to them without asking if they actually want to write out plans between characters, so I don't get bummed when the writer/character ghosts me/my character, and comments like crazy other places. If you don't want to write the scene I'm totally okay with that, but don't just ghost me, geeze.

When you join a game that's brand new and shiny and then it takes forever for it to actually get going :|

If you can't handle comm business in a timely manner, maybe it's time you got some help, closed the place, or changed things back to the way they used to be. No wonder the place is dead.

I feel this ridiculous urge to start a game. There's just two major problems with me being a mod:

1. I'm a terrible mod and easily get overwhelmed trying to actually mod a game outside of lists. I struggle with event posts and progressing a story since I love setting up a game and letting people frolick in it. As long as they're not rule breakers, squatting, or being skeevy I'm a-okay with what's going on. I'm just bloody awful at anything besides updating the taken page and playing my characters.

2. What kinds of premises do people even like in their games here? I see so much of the same thing (not that there's anything wrong with that) but like. If I'm not interested in it, how many other people feel the same? I'd want to do something more out of the box, but knowing what's acceptable here is a little out of my league.

Uhg. I wouldn't even entertain the idea if I didn't go from one extreme to the other. I went from super fast to super slow and I'm flailing because I just want to rp and do fun things on my days off and there's nothing going on. Two tags a week maximum just doesn't feel like enough.

[info]fireflyclass in [info]rpvents

So many confusing feels right now. I feel like shit.

Can't wait to disconnect in July, I'd do it now but I have nothing else-in July I'll have plenty of distractions. I do it now and I'll just feel worse..July I get to go over seas, just need to hang onto sanity..

i'm sorry this got long )

[info]bad_username in [info]rpvents

I wish these negative feelings of mine would stay the fuck away from RP.

Can we not, brain?

[info]brotips in [info]rpvents

I've had this guy in a comm for a while, and I'd love a romantic line for him, but I feel like I get looked over/not given a chance because of the face.

[info]binary_star in [info]rpvents

Fucking stop policing PBs! I get having age appropriate PBs, I do. But y'all are crazy. I really don't think I should have to have my PB's age approved by the staff if they're close enough. It's not like someone is asking to use a 20 year old face for a 40+, but when the character is 32 and the PB is 27 and they age slower in canon? I don't see a problem. Why do you?

Edit: Now with mod feedback who earns points for being a class act and open to conversation. Good job, game mod.

[info]fireflyclass in [info]rpvents

I caved in and checked the thing that makes me sad. I haven't in weeks. I've been ghosted all week. My suspicion has been confirmed and now I'm angry enough to move on for real. I'm done with you. You lied to my face. I don't have time for liars. I'm done worrying about you and wasting time being sad when you are a fucking sociopath who doesn't give a crap about anyone else. At least I know. I put so much energy and love into this, and for what? To be completely fucked over? Awesome. Fuckity bye then Felicia.

You hurt me. I loved you as a friend and you fucked me up. I feel worthless.

I'm the worst fucking RPer. I don't even know why I try. I can't be good at one thing. Just one thing. It's not too much to ask is it. I just fuck it all up.

[info]raygun in [info]rpvents

why is it so fucking hard just for people to say that a line isn't working/not interesting? ya'll don't have to fucking lie.

[info]confessor in [info]rpvents

Do mods think that they can be shady and disrespectful in drop boxes? Do they not know that it can be tracked for all eyes to see? Apparently not.

[info]fireflyclass in [info]rpvents

I feel dragged through the mud and I'm continuing to let it happen. Yes I've found things to occupy my time, do I enjoy them as much as the thing I'm losing? No. It makes me miss the thing I'm losing and it sucks. I don't even know how to feel better about this. Suggestions?

[info]deletedpurged in [info]rpvents

sorry, but a 'ship is never going to get off the ground with 2 tags a week in a moving game.

eta: rpvents won't let me comment/reply to anyone, so adding it here that it's not fandom or celeb.

[info]solonged in [info]rpvents

I respect your choice to leave but posting an OOC note in the middle of the night without giving any reason for your departure sort of hurts. You were posting as though nothing was wrong less than three hours ago so what changed?

I really hate being hit out of the blue with things like this because now I have to scramble to make some semblance of sense of the established line you just dropped with zero warning.
