The Red Flags of a Failed RP

Recommended Posts

I think a hard to use skin, a messy skin, or spelling mistakes are my biggest turn off when I am looking at new sites. I will also check the board stats for activity level. 


Sometimes simpler is better, and trying to make a fancy skin might just be making the board hard to use. I need to be able to find everything I need without much trouble.

- Lots of complaining from the admins about having to do admin related things. You can complain, just don't do it to your members. I know it's tough. Especially when you've been working on guides or lore for what seems like decades and you just want to write some posts- but you'r building the foundation of your site. Be prideful in that (and go cry to your other staff about your eyes feeling like they're bleeding)


- "Hey guests!" in the cbox for days


- Sites that appear to have copied and pasted another site's ideas, but tweaked them just enough so it's not theft. I think this is more apparent in smaller fandoms- I saw it a lot in GOT sites back in the day. It happens, but unfortunately, it usually doesn't work out. 


-Sites made by a serial site creator.

Lack of interest in involving newer members/plotting with newer members, even when new members reach out for threads. That is a red flag for me. Normally they don't last long and end up fizzling out.



This side of darkness...your story might just be beginning.
