A roleplayers peeve moments

Recommended Posts

Tagging you into a post when they've not discussed the plot with you. I don't mind that on twitter as much (not a great deal of space to write, so it makes sense), but on a forum? It's what we have shippers/plotters for. Failing that, a direct message or a private message wouldn't go astray, but putting your character into something without asking first? Folks might not have the time for it. It's kinda pushy.

When someone makes a point of asking to join your 'big plot!' ™ and then refuses to post/reply for it. Ever. Unless you send them a reminder once every month or two saying 'hey remember this?!' the other four people involved are hoping we could move on!' After 6-12 months the whole thing gets mighty old.

Current peeve is a new person coming into a site and expecting plot to be written around their character.

That and railroading ideas before they can be agreed to if it's something that would potentially effect my character/characters long term.

Those people who sit in the chat complaining they don't have anything to do with their characters day in and day out. Even after you and multiple other people have suggested they jump in an open thread or create one. We've even given them ideas on what the threads could be about and just nothing. I actually told two of them that were doing this at the same time to thread together and nothing.

 

One of the last people who did this never noticed that their character had been retired for a whole real life year ha and they still don't know to this day. My co-admin and I are taking bets if anyone is interested xD

Oh god.. On my board I have put up like 10 open threads. 7 threads done by NPC's who are connected to the board groups that might lead to board rewards if players join them. Then we're running an event and I have 3 open threads in the event and you get rewards for the length of your posts in even threads (Capped so you can't just rapid fire to collect) 

 

There are still people who say they don't know what to do with their characters. It drives me mental.

Being approached to do a thread with someone (which I'm generally, always for if I can swing it with my thread load), then not being given any ideas as to what the thread should be about. Then, if we get to the point of figuring something out, just dropping things completely if I have the gall to ask the other person start it. 

 

I get not everyone likes doing openers, but sheesh, you came to me wanting to thread.

Every so often I end up dropping a writing partner because their posts have so many grammar and spelling errors that it's hard or even impossible for me to understand them. Without fail, any time anyone else finds out about it, they ask why I wouldn't take the time to coach the person and talk like I'm obligated to hold the hand of whoever I dropped. And honestly? It annoys the hell out of me. 

 

I will write with literally anyone I can easily understand, and I have a hard time seeing that as snobby or elitist. If I've double- or triple-read your post and I'm still baffled as to what you're saying? Or there's more typos and errors than not? Or I spend longer trying to decipher your post than replying to it? Then it's not fun for me any more and I don't want to write with someone if it's not fun for me. I'll let you down easy and we can both move on to greener pastures. 

 

I'm here to write, not teach. There's millions of resources and guides just a google search away. If someone wants me to review a few pieces of writing and give some feedback, sure, but that's all I'm really willing to do. It drives me crazy when someone acts like I can't make that choice. Why don't you teach them yourself instead of telling me I'm doing the wrong thing by roleplaying in a way I enjoy?

When some people think it is 'elitist' to ask for a writing sample. I ask for writing samples all the time and provide them up front. The reason why I ask for them has nothing to do with me feeling this whole elitist garbage. It's because too many times in the past I've written with others that have said "Oh yeah, I can do several paragraphs no problem." which following my opener I receive a paragraph response in return or I'm unable to understand the post at all so damn straight I'll ask for a sample. If a person is not favorable of writing multiple paragraphs then they shouldn't say they can if it is proven otherwise.
