Red Flags

Recommended Posts

What are some red flags that say, to you, an RPer isn't going to work out. Or a site will be closed before too long?

 

What signs or symptoms make you go "Yeah, you aren't cut out for this board..." Or make you assume a board is going to be a hot mess? Or just make you realize that, maybe, you shouldn't RP with this particular person.

When an admin is quick to blame anyone they don't like. Or is overly rude. Yeah no.

 

If it's fandom and they don't allow canon names or names from other canons but they can't tell there are lesser canon names or less common fandoms running around.

 

When folks point blank refuse to rp with other folks. Like...uh...okaaaayyyy.....

 

If i have to jump through hoops to keep my characters because some people never post but someone pitches a fit if i decide to replot. 

 

I could go on and on.

 

Oh. Last one. If the board owner never actually works or posts. Yeah. You're just not gonna last. Sorrryyyyyyyy not sorryyyyyyyy

The people who think that being technically and obsessively accurate is more important than the connection between characters and players, and how if affects the story.

 

*Especially* when your source material is full of contradictions and holes.

But, DK. Treknobabble is SCIENTIFICALLY ACCURATE!

Oh my GOD yes when the rules don't apply to staff. I give not one flying fuck how slow you post. If you can't handle one post a month with your fifty bagillion characters when every single person on your damn board knows you are not doing any work, don't tell me that the "staff are too busy to meet ac requirements." if you posted long ass posts i might buy that.but it's short posts that are literally exchangeable for one character to the other.

In applications: 'Curves in the right places'. I'm now tempted to use this line for a male character.

 

Please make this. Or a character with curves in all the wrong places.

 

For people I'm considering RP'ing with, my red flags are:

- Overcorrecting other people's grammatical mistakes.

- General lack of tact.

- Not laughing at any of my jokes.
