During the past 2 months or so on this site I have expressed interest in well over a dozen RPs, created nearly a dozen characters, and got to make a total of about 5 posts in 3 different rps. The one I had the highest hopes for died when someone, the most important character, ghosted after one post. 2 weeks later I made a pain in the ass of myself, and everyone said they were still interested and I proposed a plan to restart us. One person posted, I responded, and then it died. The second I admittedly left, I spent a week of back and forth making my character meet requirements, and then my first post was criticized for using the "1st person". I replied with a definition of 1st person and assured the GM that I would use names in future posts, that I left it out because I was introducing my character as an unknown (in an already running plot). He did not relent and said I used the word "he" too much (after eventually agreeing I did not use 1st person). Another player expressed having no problems. I guess I was just the hair up that GM's ass. The third is technically still going, but we started on a beach, met a mysterious person and then the GM said OOC that he would think up stuff soon. I think it's going to stutter and die like all the rest because I don't think he had any sort of plan going in and he's had a week to come up with it. Posting is not hard. It does not have to take that long. Threads should not go weeks without input. Especially from the GM. This past week I posted in all the threads I had posted a character in asking if it was still going. I only got like 2 responses confirming death. All the other GMs were apparently content to let their RPs die before they even started and without the decency to notify the next of kin when queried. I wanted to like this site, but so far it sucks and has been a source of disappointment. I'm pretty much done with it, but I'm a glutton for interaction so I'll probably check this thread's responses. Anyone want to clue me on pockets of active players who post more than once a week? Or is there a site out there where RPs get beyond the character creation stage?
