hi this is pcp saying i miss m0x

Haha holy **** your post was hard to read with those messed up quotes.

But yeah, there are alts that were actually made for RP/take on a persona that makes sense and can be used, but I like to consider those “joke” or RP alts (depending on the situation), because a gimmick is just a ****ty ploy to through the wool over someone’s eyes; if it has a purpose and can be used, it’s not really a gimmick.

Because we’re terribly bad people and nobody likes us which is why we spend our time on forumwarz rather than having a real social life. Playing a role lets us pretend we’re someone slightly less miserable, even if only for a fleeting moment.

If I can write this, my whole life has been wasted. I'm worthless and awful.

Roleplay is only good in small amounts every once in a while. If everyone’s on rp alts doing it constantly it becomes like *yawn* “this is boring. this is literally the same thing these did yesterday. boy that got old fast” and that will happen every day. so basically what you are talking about implementing will be a place where what might have been somewhat not terrible roleplay will be overdone and diluted to the point where no one will post there, or those who do will post terribly.

Roleplay along with most of this site is dead anyways so you’ll just waste your time. But go ahead I wont stop you, maybe it will help this site die quicker lol.

I haven't seen a bad idea that I didn't like.

What you guys are forgetting is that actual serious roleplay on other sites involves storylines.

It’s not just people talking in character, it’s people in character playing out drama and epics with each other.

Sure, some roleplaying involves being your character in chat, that’s fine and it has its place. But nothing but that style of rp is what gets boring fast. If we’re seriously roleplaying, it would involves introductions, plot twists, like, actual redeeming entertainment value.

That’s why I thought when JB said ‘subforum’ that he meant ‘secret subforum’ that you could only get access too if you’re invited, and access can be revoked. That way the good posters/rpers can play around in it without worrying about joe troll ruining their great storyline or tear-jerking melodrama.

Forumwarz is even better suited to the epic style of rp than normal forums because everyone has devoted and dedicated alt accounts specifically for roleplaying. You can actually BE your character Malone O’Sleazy in the story rather than being EpicPwn3r829 playing his role as hardened detective Malone O’Sleazy. More immersive.

I strongly support the addition of this forum as a secret subforum. Or at least a public subforum only some can post in. That way people can read them (if they want.)

I agree with this.

There’s nothing wrong with a public forum, if someone gives bad RP the clear answer is to just ignore their posts in the hopes they’ll be shamed into not posting anymore.

Ok so either you’re invited and you’re a cool kid or you’re not invited, not wanted, and of all around a person of less value. This is essentially what it boils down to, at least in the eyes of people who want to post but aren’t allowed to. And that is exactly what makes people WANT to troll this elite special board, especially since there might actually be something to disrupt.

Emphasis added. About that… no. Not everyone has a bunch of alts to throw around. This game and along with it flamebate is also open to non-paying public who are restricted to a single character. Easy to forget, I know.

Also what comes to those ‘serious roleplaying forums’ I’ve yet to see one that didn’t degrade into a juvenile narcissistic circle jerk within a month or less, but of course that doesn’t prove there aren’t those that don’t so whatever.

Wow, talk about a false dichotomy. That could be on a fallacy wall poster.

You seem to be bumuming that this will be nothing but intensely strict and heavy-handed favoritism. If you want an invite to the forum, ask for one and you get one. Most people who don’t like or want to read people trying to rp won’t really want in, and if people do, they can get in.

If someone acts like they want in, then ****s the place up with shock and whatnot, they get kicked out again. I mean, it’s hardly the ridiculous “Oh I didn’t make the cut so I must be OF LESS VALUE Log in to see images!” you’re playing it up to be. It’s not like “You must be THIS GOOD of an rper to make it in.”

Your condescension is very productive, might I add. And while you might not have a bunch of alts to throw around, a very large percentage of the forum community here do. And seriously, so what if they can’t use other alts? My point was that a lot of people having them lends itself well to roleplay. Your point really said nothing except that you’re very upset about people having more alts than you.

Please, do enumerate what “serious roleplaying forum” communities you’ve actually been a part of, and then I’ll address that.

Right from the moment when I saw Saw, I laughed.

Essentially, it’ll work for about a month, and then just become more RP with a very ambiguous difference, which people will all interpret differently. Even when it does work, it’ll be pretty much uninteresting; all the threads people pay attention to in RP are the ones that get personal about semi-irl ****. If you read RP you know nothing goes over 2 pages otherwise. This won’t be Advanced RP, it’ll be more like diet RP and it will suck.

I kind of explained what should be done in my last post. Never mind the one sentence with the size 30 font, it seemed funny at the time, but doing that kind of ruined my otherwise serious post.

Happiness cannot be bought, but Crispers can.

I honestly don’t think this will do anything. If people wanted to seriously roleplay they would. They just don’t

Having a ‘private’ or ‘unique’ forum won’t change the fact that no one has any good ideas or the time to do it. It also won’t change that the people who took it seriously left a very long time ago.

Go ahead and make it but I don’t see it working. The user base has changed. Accept it, move on. People from 4Chan and ED do not want to pretend to be a emo kid.
