Playing Style- Passive or Aggressive
Usually aggressive, but can switch to passive if it makes sense for the character/scene.
Favorite Genres
Fantasy is my #1; I will give almost anything a chance if it has strong fantasy elements. Post apocalyptic, superhero, alternate history, science fantasy, some supernatural, romance, and a few fandoms (especially Game of Thrones) are also likely to catch my eye.
Genre You DON'T Like
Horror, western, pure slice of life.

After reporting a spambot post in the Roleplay Institute I received the following alert.



I'm pretty sure that's not supposed to happen, especially since it wasn't my thread and I wasn't watching it. No idea if it's a bug or something goofy done by whoever dealt with the thread, but I figured it was worth bringing up since it's an oddity.

Middle of the road. I can sit back and watch my partner be wonderful and then step up and take my own turn holding the reins. Ideally I like to do both.
Favorite Genres
Fantasy, Modern Fantasy, Romance, Horror, Mystery.
Genre You DON'T Like
Sci-fi (though I have done and will probably do again), Anime, most fandoms/cannon, Furry

I've had that happen too. I'm guessing it is when more than one report is given on a thread, they are merged to keep things neat behind the scenes. I'll await an official answer since I am curious.

Playing Style- Passive or Aggressive
Both. I usually start off a bit more passive while getting used to the world and my character(s), but once I feel like I know my character(s) well I usually feel very comfortable with becoming more aggressive.

I like it if both parties can do things for the plot and create new characters, both villains and heroes. If you are completely passive, we might not fit each other.
Favorite Genres
Historical, fantasy, magic, horror, supernatural, survival, vampires, demons, pirates, mutants, ghosts, romance (FxF, MxM, MxF) (Romance should be part of the plot and not the whole plot in itself), etc.
Genre You DON'T Like
Scifi. Mecha. Combat. Overly action oriented stuff. Overly ecchi or sexual (Characters can have sex, but fade to black is a must.). Slice of life (I need something to spice up the rp, like supernatural stuff or a fantasy/historical setting. Otherwise it gets boring real quickly.)
#3
When staff merges threads there is an option to either tell the people who has made the thread that it's happening or not to tell them. The tell them option is always on, so we need to un-check it every time we merge something when the person having done the thread doesn't need to know about it. Some times a miss happens and a message is sent out even though it shouldn't.

So not a bug, just human error. :p

Also, yes, we do merge reports that are about the same thing into one another. Otherwise it is really hard to keep track of everything o_o

Wasn't past of the OP that it was in fact, not their thread? Would it still apply?
...especially since it wasn't my thread and I wasn't watching it.

If you report something, then you do create a new thread in our invisible report section. :9 So it was Jorick's thread, it's just that he can't see that thread since only staff can see the report section.

I'll consider just about any genre, although generally I'm no longer interested in anime-esque roleplays or high school settings.

I still don't understand why that option is checked by default!

Cause Diana is a sadist who likes to torture mods with an extra click and members with weird alerts? :D

It just shows a link and that gets thrown into the pile with the rest of the spam reports.
