It’s not a bad idea if

A) Moderated properly

B) Used Correctly By Users

C) Allowing RP outside of clbum

But we all know either A or B will almost never happen.

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.

This is very true. Log in to see images!

I personally wouldn’t be eager to participate in such a forum either. Why? Because there would be even less activity than on the normal forums and because it would be rather exhausting to deal with all the guys who are “trying too hard”. LHO is actually right about saying that too much RP can be annoying, especially if someone tries to force you into it. The most entertaining RP characters here never had that much trouble with “RP hate” anyway.

And the highest enjoyment I got from Flamebate wasn’t caused by the most cleverly thought out character. The posters I enjoyed the most (and I’m pretty sure, others did, too) usually didn’t take themselves too seriously. And often, it weren’t even particular people, but rather group dynamics that made Flamebate fun. And this is what’s missing: There’s absolutely nothing going on here anymore. No people worth making fun of, no super-drama regarding certain bans or admin actions or anything, no klan warfare, no rule bending, nothing. Even when h0g left, not much really happened in the RP section. Log in to see images!

If I started a thread one year ago, 75% of the posts in there would have been pretty lame already, but I would have definitely found something to continue the thread. If I start a thread today, I don’t even have to bother looking into it again.

I wish people would focus their energy on doing some role-playing instead of elaborately describing how something new that hasn’t been implemented yet will fail.

Maybe you should all go back to playing your little Dungeons and Dragons games.

I hate role-play.

You should do it because right now the normal roleplaying forums aren’t roleplaying, there just without as many rules. Test it out, it has no downsides.

The community ****es about everything possible as it is, so it actually couldn’t hurt.

Improved idea: don’t make the new RP forums come up when you go on flamebate, like how there’s an active topics list for CD and RP. Make it so, if it’s a subforum inside RP, it doesn’t feed to the active filter list, because it’s obvious there will be not-so-good RP and I’d really prefer not seeing a thread titled ‘Pedro and the flaming fabulous persons’ or something ****ting up the active topics list.

“Trojan Horse Magnum”

Anything that even slightly suggests roleplaying is better than the actual RP forums. ET had a good idea when he started it: creating a place for all the users to represent their clbumes. However, this was ruined by the obnoxious and omnipresent wannabe-trolls that thought trolling as ‘diaf diaf diaf’.

ARP would be a solution, even if only a temporary one, to save the roleplaying side of Flamebate. As someone (as I am too lazy to search for the quote again), we need storylines. And sticking to our clbumes, in this situation, would be even worse. Serious RPers should build a character, with a solid story behind. If ARP is made by good RPers into a mbumive story, it may have an influence on the quality of Flamebate. Also, note that gimmick alts are not to be considered ‘good RP’. Inspector Chelmey, Mathew Johnson and others could revive Flamebate in case of an ARP section being created, while Google Ads wouldn’t. Voting yes.

So then don’t use it.

Hence why I rarely post on that character.

I did try building some sort of RP on it, but it’s a half bumed meme within a meme. Everyone has squid-related jokes before. There’s no way I can be original with that.

Oh ****, alt reveal – brb reporting myself.

That’s exactly what I meant. You can’t roleplay as a hacker. In my opinion, only Karl Koch is doing it right. That’s why we need unique characters, irrespective of the clbumes.

Level 69 Troll

Trying to create drama to drum up the ratings by any means necessary!

This post is in reply to the conversation happening in the “food” thread that has nothing to do with food.

As far as I can tell, gimmicks post only very, very occasionally, otherwise the gimmick goes stale. They’re RP, but not sustainable RP like this suggested forum is looking for.

We’ve seen some good RP here in the past, but it’s always been relatively short-lived as the character’s story ran out.

If we’re forced to choose one character and play it consistently in a “Civil RP” forum then I don’t imagine the forum activity will last long. This isn’t an RP site it’s a parody site.

Having said that: What could it hurt? Just do it imo

I really don’t see how it could hurt anything. If it becomes the unfunny circlejerk some fear it will, you can just avoid reading it, right? Even if it ends up being mostly gimmick posts, I don’t see how that’s worse than Anonymous. I’d just try it and see what happens and if it’s truly terrible, well, it’s just a forum. It can be deleted or reworked again.
