I'm just curious, because I've started a few roleplays lately, and in my resume it states that I am an Advanced+ roleplayer. I also state in my information section that I post between 4-30 paragraphs, depending on the roleplay and my partner. Yet, I type up a first post that's relatively small for me, and people get scared off. Some people simply just don't respond, while other's straight out tell me 'I can't write that much'. Usually, before I accept a partner, I check their post history to see if we are compatible. Most of the time it looks as if we are, but then when it comes time to posting I'm usually staring at my screen wondering what happened. I'm one of those strange types of roleplayers that doesn't like characters interacting straight away. I like to get into character personality, history, and lay out the scene for the first few posts before characters interact. Is that why there's so many problems? Or is it because no one bothers reading my profile and then gets scared off by what they assume is a huge wall of text without even reading the contents?
