I'm fine with both, as it can depend on the character and game. I do think I've got a bad habit developed st some point where I tend to avoid the spotlight when I should step into it, but I'm working on it. And when I decide there's been enough talk and it's time for action, I'll go out and do something.
I'm more used to tabletop RPGs where there's a GM and players, and while I'm comfortable in either role, when the expectation is for everyone to control NPCs or similar, I can flounder a bit as it's just not what I'm used to.
No big deal, these things happen. I also got everything started right around when classes start back up or have only recently started back up for...pretty much everyone. And then the site had maintenance. So the dip in activity doesn't worry me too much, yet.
I've got to go put a character of my own together, to be honest.
