RP is dying.... what do we do?

Postby Excalibur » 18 May 2016, 02:25

Hey guys,

The RP room is no longer as active as it used to be.... I would like to see it active again. What can we do to maybe bring back old RPers or generate interest for new ones? Share your thoughts with MEEEEE!!!

maybe the fact that most of the old rpers are either busy with their life and inactive?

many rpers have sworn to become more active during the summer, I think a decision should be made in the summer.

The biggest issue in my opinion is how intimidating it is for new roleplayers. While they may be bad, keep in mind that they are new...whenever they show up, more experienced roleplayers show up and often completely shuts them down. I've seen cases where veterans just kill the new people. Some new rpers just have a lack of character as well.

Perhaps we just need to appear more friendly, and possibly people looking into RP for new people. If we can catch them, we can help them out. Tell them to read the rules, give them ideas for their character, that sort of thing.

Lol
No there's no way to bring back the oldies until oldies contact other oldies but that would be weird. Focus on the new guys. Have an rp week and name yourselves after great old rpers.(This is a joke.)

You should probably have the rp room and room 1 alternate as the default rooms for awhile. Make the rp room red again cause identity and then loosen up on the rp rules (I only mean that one rule that says you have to rp religiously in the rp room.)

Here's my proposal. Allow rp in both rooms but when people start moving from casual rp to full on *reply* *reply*t2 s10 tell them to go to the rp room from room1 unless all members that are chatting are in a single rp session (Example would be 2 people rping in a dead chat.). This should work because rpers aren’t bothering anyone when they rp in a dead room at t2 s3or7.This also works in a full room too because rpers would be the ones bothered in room1 so they'd have to go to rp room (Example: Damn this chat is too fast. Rper2 let's bounce to the other room).


If only you could have bots that would pretend to rp with each other to show how to rp.
This guy is the embodiment of cringe.
