So I created a roleplay, and so far, I've gotten one person to join. So I might have messed up a bit in the beginning, with how I tried to start things, but I fixed it pretty quick. At first, I wanted a small group RP where all the members joined and helped build the world/plot together. That didn't happen, and that's fine, I built the world and created a sort of plot, and it was fun. But I still don't have any members. So I went recruiting. I visited oooh...20-30 profiles, surely, and read their roleplay resumes (I visited a few dozen more, but they didn't have roleplay resumes, so I skipped them). I sent out personal invites via visitor message, asking people to check out my roleplay, tell me what they thought. I didn't get any replies. Now I am sitting here with this wonderfully complex (not really) world, and a story that is just waiting to be played out. And I still only have one other roleplayer interested. Is there some method of recruitment/rising interest I am unaware of? Is there a better place/way to look for roleplayers who might be interested? Or is there something wrong with the actual roleplay set up? Should I change things around to make them ...better or something? My roleplay is called Ra'Shala Emporium (although it seriously needs a new name, since it totally is about more than just the Emporium, bah). The OOC/Recruitment thread is HERE and the main RP thread (which only has like, 3 posts so far, there are only two of us after all) is HERE. Please check it out and tell me what I am doing wrong? I only need like, 2 more people (3 max), and then it will be jolly fun and all, with us juggling as many characters as we can sanely manage and such. But how do I get those 2-3 more people? HELP ME! I know every roleplay site is different, and there has to be some trick for this site that I just haven't learned yet!
