    Viewpoint Favorite and least favorite powers?

    I love animal related powers and extremely limited powers. (Ex. I can talk to cats. But just housecats, not tigers or lions or anything like that) I feel like when you make powers extremely specific and practical it gives you the chance to get creative with your characters. If the universe...

    So as an example let’s say the requirements are you posf every other day. Rule - If you do not post for four days your character will be removed from the current action. You can add them back as soon as you return. Previous to that would be the OOC rule Rule - Please be active in the OOC...

    No I didn’t find it to be particularly intimidating to players. Mind I managed what they called “lit” on my old site roleplays. So it was like three paragraph minimums and the time limit was two times the post requirement in the rules. So if the requirement was you post once a week then you...

    Advice/Help So.....

    You said roleplay was giving you panic attacks. I assumed you meant the medical definition and offered a solution. If you mean you have low self esteem than I recommend mantras. As I mentioned in another thread your problem is at its core your own internal monologue. So you need to change that...

    Advice/Help So.....

    If roleplay is giving you panic attacks you might want to talk to your mental health professional about coping mechanisms. I personally found mantras and medication helped but every individual is different so it’s best to go straight to professionals if this is an issue you have.

    Advice/Help So.....

    @SociallyAwkwardSoul so I love superheroes and I think in general they’re decently popular. It might be the 24 hour reply time table that’s tripping you up. Not a lot of folks can reply daily.

    Advice/Help What's a good rule of thumb for inactivity/leaving the RP?

    I find focusing less on posts and more on health helps. So if your partner isn’t responding just ask - “hey are you still busy?” OR “are you feeling okay? do you need more time?“ This lets them know that you aren’t mad and doesn’t feel like your rushing them to post out a response. also if you...

    I found an active OOC helps with this. Get them making friends among themselves and not just popping in solely to drop off a character and post. Also having very specific requirements with posting helps. Because a lot of ghosting (well what isn’t just IRL which you can’t control) is people...

    Viewpoint What you cannot stand in characters?

    lol funny thing, this was with canon characters. I think the ex-friend might have been an original but everyone else was Canons. Granted they were acting in a way as to be essentially OCs but they were in an established universe using the actors as face claims.

    Viewpoint What you cannot stand in characters?

    Sort of related when it’s low key obvious you are basically helping that person work through some personal issues around relationships. I had one girl come to me with this convoluted plot that was just blatantly her being salty about some guy breaking up with her and me playing his proxy (and...

    Viewpoint Why do straight female roleplayers tend to like abusive roleplays?

    So I don’t know if this has been mentioned but I think OP might be overthinking things just a tad. In my experience most people don’t think of the relationships mentioned as real. Like when you bring up - hey I am not comfortable with this particular dynamic or this particular interaction...

    Fantasy Be My Monster? Supernatural/Fantasy 1x1 search

    So your pet store idea are you meaning non-sentient monsters? So like you can buy a flying cat, a mini dragon, a three headed dog, etc? Cuz I would be super interested in fleshing that out with you.

    So it’s been quite a while and I did my group work on another site. So the first key difference is they didn’t really have site mods. I mean technically they did but the site mods didn’t really interact with users much beyond dealing with onsite currency or like website bugs. They didn’t...
