This is my first post in my first thread in this site, and I have to say that this is quite a site you guys have. With no shortage of active members, I hope the experiences in various roleplays I'll be participating in can help enrich the site's roleplaying activity as a whole, and end up as fun and fulfilling for all involved. Here's a short bio on what I like and dislike. I hope those can serve as an indicator of what RPs I tend to join. I prefer: - Passable grammar and spelling when roleplaying. - Prioritization of the right elements in a roleplay post, in order of descending importance: character consistency, tone consistency, narrative progression, - Structured systems of magic, if said magic is at all present. This helps the players to know to what extent their characters can grow or progress. - Good communication between participating players, may it be via private messages or OOC/RP discussion threads. - Consistent lore for RP settings. I dislike: - Distracting signatures. (This means animated images or overly bright and big text, or signatures being five times as big as your average post size) - Using fandom-specific images as an image for your original character. (If you're going to give your character an image, make a more serious effort, such as drawing it yourself) - Immature behavior. (Nuff said on this one) - Coloring text when a character speaks. (Distracting. Besides, it's offensive to colorblind people :P) - Having Japanese characters and Japanese terms in a setting where their presence doesn't make sense.
