Subject Post 1PostSubject: What Would You Say To Your Younger Self About RPing?   Mon May 04, 2015 1:49 pm



What Would You Say To Your Younger Self About RPing?

As the title says: what would you say to your younger self about RPing? Anything in terms of staffing, posting/writing, members, character or anything pertaining to this game we all play. Any tips? Any advice to give? Any warnings?

For myself, I'd begin with saying:

- You'll find what you want to pursue in college through your first RP family.

- Don't sweat the small stuff. Things will work themselves in time.

- Don't tolerate anything you wouldn't normally.

- @ me from 14 through 15. Shut your mouth. Shut your ignorant little 15 year old mouth. For the love of god don't be a power-dick. It will bite you in the ass and you'll learn the hardway. You're just a brat. Stop being a brat, little 15 year old me.

- Don't get too attached to people you meet as RPing partners. Everything comes in cycles, and there will be new people that come, and new people that leave. That's just the process of life.

- Trust your instincts when staffing, but don't become so hardened that you become overly defensive and paranoid. Be willing to compromise, but don't let anyone pressure you into a anything you don't want to play or implement.

- Alternatively, be mindful around RPing drama and kill it as soon as you sense it or see it with your own eyes. Don't let others toxicity ruin your own personal business.

- You can't please everyone. Don't even try to. It's pointless. Focus on the majority, but don't cater to every single person. Not everyone is going to like your characters, not everyone is going to like your ideas, not everyone is going to like you. And, you know what? That's perfectly alright. Stay sighted on those who like you.

- Learn to tune out criticism that doesn't provide anything constructive, and understand when to take in criticism that is actually trying to be helpful. It will save you grief in the long-run. You'll have a knack for understanding when someone is trying to help and when someone is just being an asshole.

- Always aim to have fun and make sure the people around you are having fun. If you aren't having fun, it's time to either change something, address something or move on. So MOVE ON and fix it.

- Don't roleplay or staff when you're super stressed. It won't lead to anything fun and bad things tend to happen.

- Don't be afraid to try something new. You may have your likes and comfort zones, but you'd be amazed what kind of amazing experiences you can find by just trying something that might have made you a little scared at first.

- Know that most folks will fade away once you're not in the same RP anymore. Only a few will stick around and become like real friends.

- Don't be afraid to cut all ties to people when they get to be toxic towards you. Just because they claim to be your friend and then turn around and abuse you...doesn't excuse their actions. That isn't friendship. There are others out there that actually care about you as a person rather than just an rp partner that gives them what they want, so you don't need these two-faced so-called friends.

- Don't do things out of obligation. Do it because it brings you joy. If not, then what's the point of it anyway?

- Let. it. go.

- It's going to be alright.

- And most of all: take it easy.

Now it's you guys turn.

She's right, Younger Trim. (UN)

PROTIP: Don't trust anyone named Akemi, Kanda, Toxic or 48. (UN)

Go and advertise more things!
Gin is a sneaky b@stard!
Talk with Frost more he's actually a decent guy!
Try not to be too sad when people you like posting with start doing it with other people while you're away!
Roleplay with Phantasia a lot sooner!
Never stop trying!
Have fun with it! A character doesn't need to be super strong for you to use them!
Creativity is everything!
Just because you smell weakness doesn't mean you need to eviscerate them!
It's alright to cry.
It's also alright to be upset.
You'll find your purpose.
Zetsurin is an omnisexual.
Talk with Tsubine more. That guy is running on almost the exact same taste wavelengths you do.
Understand that loyalty and intent > temporal feelings.
Neko will last much longer than a week.
If people leave, then they have left. Even if they are your close friends. This is your home.
YOUR IPOD IS NOT A FUNCTIONING POSTING DEVICE YOU MORON.
USE ONENOTE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD
Kazuki is never going to reply.
It's ok to have 50 characters. It's also allow to let those who you know you won't be able to write about go.
GO OUT THERE AND /FIND/ SOMEONE YOU CLICK WITH AND BRING THEM BACK HERE!
If you join staff, you are never going to leave.
It is not ok to be in a relationship where you can be affected but you cannot affect the other person the same way.

Additional Protips: Gin, Kanda, Kanda, Kanda, Kanda, Kanda, Gin, and others on the Internet are transient and may or may not actually exist. Unfortunately, when they do, the vast majority of the time they are only there because they are escaping someone else. So pity them, but watch out for yourself first and foremost.

And if I might say something to young Blade:

Leave the poor kid alone and put your posting where your mouth is!

And something to young Austin:

It's gonna be ok buddy.

And something to young Frost:

FROST PLZ

And something to current Frost:

FROST PLZ

And something to past Zetsurin:

Your roleplaying is perfectly fine. Perfectly fine.

That's all.

Yeah, stay away from that bitch.

I approve of this statement.

Quote :
Chao's a guy.
UHCM is a guy.
Phan is a girl.

Everyone on the internet is either a man or a pretty boy.

And something to current Frost:

FROST PLZ

To the younger me (who's actually Yuki not Moka):

-You don't have to take everything by yourself
--If you do and it gets really hard don't start feeling guilty/let people guilt trip you into not leaving projects where you feel like you are the only one contributing and it should be everyone contributing into it.

-Don't let what other people say get to you. Rumors off and on the site.
--What they say about your persona/what you know don't take it to heart. Such as about being an attention seeker off and on the site. You're not an attention seeker, just a person that feels and thinks a whole lot so you do need to get things off your chest often. (plus communicating is a weak spot for you) Also bullies probs do this to sweep what they did under the rug.
--There's a lot of things you keep to yourself, things that you are afraid to bring up. It's okay to not be super open.
---Don't think too much on your reactions, like what if scenarios. How you react to things isn't JUST what makes you who you are. If you think you reacted bad to something or feel guilty you can apologize later. How you react and your mood depends on how your day went and the people you interacted with. It's not a set in stone thing.
---People can be really shitty at times...You don't need shitty people in your life.


-When it comes to communicating, you should try harder to clear up misunderstandings people have. Don't give up. Don't give up in general when it comes to communicating.


-Don't beat yourself up too much inside whenever an admin keeps a creep away from you or bans a creeper.
--Don't doubt yourself both irl and RP. You are perfectly sane. You are right the first time when you felt that bad feeling in your gut when it comes to people.

-Your are fine the way you are. Sure you have flaws, everyone does but you don't need to have a 360 change. You are well aware of your flaws not everyone is like that. Be proud that you know that and you are trying to work on them. You CAN NOT be perfect.

-For everything else. Don't stress too much and everything is going to be fine.
