Community Rules

This comm is open to anyone to post codes, layouts, resources, tutorials, and requests for help and content. Of course, we do have some rules, so please read through them before jumping in; thank you!

Treat others the way you'd like to be treated. This is not a drama comm, and we expect you guys to be awesome and stay civil. If a situation gets out of hand, please contact a mod, and leave comments intact so we can accurately handle the situation.

Please tag your posts and check out the tagging guide if you have any questions!

■ Very long posts or posts formatted with your own div styling for organization should be behind a cut to save people's f-lists.

Work safe above the cut, please!

■ If posting codes, guides, etc. absolutely do not post content that you did not make. That's stealing, and it's super uncool, bro! If you are posting expanded/edited codes made by yourself using another user's coding as well, please be sure you have their permission (You do not need direct permission if they allow edits to be re-posted in their blanket rules.)
■ Do not post tutorials/links to tutorials that show people how to steal codes from other users. Again: Stealing. Not cool.
When asking for help with something, please check the help tags (help: coding, help: graphics, help: icons, help: layouts, help: other) first to see if your question has already been posted and answered to avoid duplicates.

We do not allow game ads to be posted on this comm since there are so many communities specifically for that already; if you're pimping a game as an addition to a regular post, that's fine. (OK: You post an RP code and mention in the post, oh hey, also I'm running this game! NOT OK: Posts dedicated to game promo.)

We do allow other types of community promos if they are related to RP (icon comms, other types of resource comms, etc.) Just shoot us a comment in our dropbox beforehand and we'll let you know if it's cool to post!

No Subject

I've written some essays on RP. I know it sounds thrilling but in case you're interested...

How To Integrate Into a Game; getting lines, ships and making compelling characters. This is sort of a general RP philosophy that's in progress and may split off into separate essays later.

Conflict in RP; conflict is essential to plot and lines, and it's essential to be a good line partner.

IC/OOC Posts; a primer on how to create and participate in successful, active IC/OOC game events.

There are my brain thoughts for you to have. ♥

I have a couple of ideas for future essays on RP, the next one being plot idea generation and troubleshooting difficult types of characters (too smart, bad guys, etc.) so they can integrate into games. If there is an RP topic you would like me to cover, I'd be interested to hear it!

Thanks, all!

thanks for this! as a dw transplant, i find it very helpful. along those lines, though, i think a primer would be helpful? for people like me. with lingo, tips, etc.

Hey, thanks for the reply! That's a great idea.

I haven't RPed on dw, so I wouldn't be able to speak to how it's different from dw, but I could do a basic "how to journal RP on IJ if you've never journal RPed" post.

I will add it to my queue!

feel free to reach out if you have any questions! :)

Yeah, I'll let you know when it's written and you can take a look and see if it answered some of your questions or if it's missing stuff you'd want to know or would have been helpful to know!

Funnily enough, I'd thought about trying DW because the RP pools on our server are shrinking. I take it DW has been experiencing the same?

I'm not sure! I think it depends on which fandom you're into.

I've been really feeling Star Trek lately.

Okay, this may be way too basic for you, but I wrote up this.
