12/13/18 01:53 pm - [info]seethesoldiers - SEEKING OPINIONS AND ADVICE!

Hello! I'm looking to get some opinions and advice on how to list certain gender identities, or more specifically how to properly group them for a directory that acknowledges them as not conforming to what some would call "more traditional societal norms". I don't want to offend or disrespect so I would appreciate all input, please and thanks!

In the interest of honesty I originally created a NON-BINARY directory, in which I was putting non-binary, genderfluid, genderneutral PBs, but I was given some advice that it might be better to use a broader term because not all of those individuals would identify with the non-binary tag even if I went on to specify in the icon entries how they do identify. I changed it to OTHER but I can understand why that might seem disrespectful or even dismissive and obviously that's not what I want either.

So yes! I would very much appreciate suggestions and input from any/everyone who sees this post in order to properly represent all gender identities we have ♥!

FOLLOW UP: I would also appreciate advice on whether it would be best to list trans-individuals in the gender directory with which they would identify, so a trans-woman like Peppermint (of Drag Race fame) would be in the Female directory because that's how she identifies. Thoughts and opinions on this matter as well? ♥

Anyone know where I might can find something like a Tinder code?

Is it a thing to delete a PSL if someone hasn't replied in a week. With no warning whatsoever? Not even a "are you okay?"

Christmas season is brutal. I have so much I want to do with my characters but I don't have the energy for it. I hate retail.

I feel like this entire series has been building towards human/dinosaur hybrids, and I'm going to be disappointed if Jurassic World 3 doesn't deliver.

It's going to be interesting to see what hijinks Marvel is playing with this trailer. Like I'm pretty sure that they CGI'd Natasha's hair in order to hide that there's gonna be a time-jump. And I'm not sold that that's 2018!Steve.

Also, pretty sure at least one of the major characters that dies is going to be revealed to a Skrull. Don't know who (money's on Cap, just so they can keep the possibility of bringing Chris Evans back eventually if he wants), but someone's gonna be a Skrull-all-along.

This isn't really a vent so much as me just not understanding.

I don't understand customs. I've role-played in small circles for 10+ years now and I've never been in a position where customs takes up most of the game. Most places I have been do a whole lot of threading either in GDOCS or on the community site... Threading in customs? Why? Someone help?

...maybe I am getting too old for this.

Rule #1 - Keep your fangs and claws to yourself: no snacking on the student body.
Rule #2 - No magic in the hallways.
Rule #3 - A full moon is no excuse for not having made your homework.

The '18-'19 academic year has begun. At St. Margaret's Academy, there's no such thing as normal.
Open since 2013, St. Margaret's Academy is looking for great RPers and fresh faces. We're a fun and laid back group, so enrol your progeny today!

Not an exact copy/paste of our game, but you could've tried doing something creatively different. Just glad you're happy and continuing to play. I hope the new place puts up better with your monosyllabic responses on your own characters' entries and tags that only come every other week, if they come at all.

When your enjoying your lines and role-play and something just completely takes the legs out from under you.

Creative High, meet what feels like rock bottom.

Its silly because its just a hobby, but that doesn't make it hurt any less.

When you miss a character so darn much and hate that he never got a chance to really shine because he got jerked around in every line you managed to get for him, and lost his muse because the last time he got screwed was just too much for you even when there might have been a faint light of a good line in the distance and you just couldn't bring yourself to play him anymore.

Nostalgia is sometimes the worst. *kicks self*

You know, I don't think it's at all too much to expect that if you're interested in possibly joining a comm, checking to be sure the character or celeb type you play is eligible there.

When you pick up a new line and it seems to be going good then there is a week of silence. And yes, I see you over there picking up new lines with no response to me.

More essays! Here for you.

What is IJ RP? This gets really basic, talking about RP itself in its different forms. Hopefully it can help you all recruit some friends into the hobby?

The Five Dysfunctions of a Game. Why do RP games break apart and breed OOC drama? Here is my hot take (sorta) and what mods and players can do about it.

How Do you Generate Plot Ideas? Okay, warning. This is just the logic I use to generate ideas. I don't actually give any good plot ideas in this post, unless you've never heard of a power swap plot before. >> *cough*

I'm also half way through a new RP essay series, Troubleshooting Your Character
• How to bring lifeless, uninvolved characters back from the dead.
When characters are too smart and want to "solve" a game or plot.

Coming soon:
• How to make a bad guy work as a player character in a game full of heroes.
• Problems I have not figured out how to solve: case studies in dropped characters.

Please feel free to sound off if there's anything else you want me to ramble about. ♥

jealousy over characters = worst thing because it is absolutely unreasonable as fuck and it can put me off playing with a character entirely sometimes? the ship isn't even canon (it's just accepted as such by the entire fandom) but i still hate it :(

i know they can do whatever they want and it's honestly fine by me! the muse in my head just hates seeing their person with another person i guess?

12/1/18 07:21 pm - [info]needsleep posting in [info]rpvents

It's a strange moment, but it's here. Going back, deleting old accounts, and realising that you'll never rp again.

It's been over two years since I've had anything close to a mutally-enjoyable line, and since writing what I want to write, with characters I love, isn't an option, and writing what a partner wants to write, without input of my own, makes me feel like I'm not even valued as a human.

And yet as I tidy up my internet footprints, I'm sitting here crying.

When one of your characters wants to get all excited about a post on their friends page, make sure that it is dated after the post in question. It's already bad enough that you/your friends all post/comment at the same time, as if you were one person, but it's just laughable to read my friends feed and see things in the wrong order. LOL

You used to be able to find games that were like, "there's a massive apartment building in [City], all the characters in game live in it", modern day slice of life type things. Do people still do them anymore?

I fear I may have gotten really picky about the kind of game I want to play in. I'm looking for slice of life.

* I don't really want to play supernatural anymore (I'm in one which I'm really liking but I'm looking for something more... mundane? No, that sounds negative. I just want some normal).
* I'm not suuuper into the html craze that seems to have hit RP—I can do it, I just would rather write something more substantial.
* I've tried panfandom but they always feel too big and too unwieldy and I've never truly been comfortable in one.

I'm not the kind of person who would necessarily plot out a romance, but I would like the potentiality for my character to fall in love, organically, with a character written by someone who wants to write them and who won't drop out after a couple of weeks.

Anyway, I'm moaning because I'm picky and I haven't been able to find a game that I could do that sort of thing in lol. So I guess the point of this post is, if you're out there and you're modding or playing in a game like this... can you please tell me? I just want to play :(

i'm so glad that someone out there consistently understands that when people open an ad comm, the one thing they really want to see is multiple spam posts in the biggest letters possible, preferably in bright red. please actually open that comm so that all of us can flock to it and subject ourselves to your bullshit willingly.

Sometimes you just can't make everyone happy in a line, and that is one of the hardest things for me to accept.

tfw you want to vent about absurd bullshit but you know that they check rp and are looking for an excuse to continue starting shit.
