What's the point in creating new RPG communities when you do nothing to fix the ones you already have? Current Mood: #FollowingTheWhiteRabbit
|Monday, February 23rd, 2015|
I'm amazed at how some of you people can advertise for your RPGs proudly. Especially if its full of say-nothing tweets and do nothing storylines. Even better if its chock-full of passive aggressive shitheads who just can't even. Enjoy having no standards. I hope your worlds are as easy as you need it to be.

Obviously, everyone is free to post ads for what they want but it's kinda disheartening to see ringrats
filled with smut requests and little else. Yet another sign that roleplay is dwindling on this server.

Long Time, no Holler....
But today's subject is more of a question. "Challenges" and usernames.
I recently applied to a community, and was told that I lost a "challenge" for the role of this strapping young buck here. To someone who likely had an easier to figure out username. Perhaps its a bit difficult for gamers and writers to click to figure out what the character is. Games that require the least amount of creativity possible shouldn't be the norm. Dumbing down your writing and gaming shouldn't be a standard.
And losing a "challenge" when the arena isn't defined and the battle isn't waged is a farce. Get better, people.

So, what's the over/under on this brand new community? 3 weeks? Four?

If you're going to continuously flood rp communities and ringrats
with your crappy journals can't you at least make an effort to get your spelling and grammar correct?! And for the love of all that is holy stop with the net speak journal names. ustabeedge
? Really? Really? Really? I know it's become a little more difficult to find variations on popular names but there are still infinitely more options then these teeny type names, especially when it's no secret it's being done by grown ass women already in their 40's. The best thing for the rp world is if you would take Punk/Jaybear, their 15+ kids and all your other imitation rp journals and return back into the obscurity from which you tried rising from again.

hahaha, ah man, it's just amusing to go into ringrats now and see yet another game made by the same group of people. to those of us that are still sane in the rp world, who wants to take bets on how long it will be before yet another one is made. i got two days!
Like no. I'm serious. Are you fucking kidding me? ANOTHER. MOTHER EFFING GAME. FOR. FREAKING SERIOUS????? WHAT. I CANNOT.
I just want a good one. One that stays around for you know... more than a week. Remember that time games were opened for years on end? And it was wonderful? Yeah. Miss that. Want that back. Where'd all those people go?
|Monday, July 30th, 2012|
Why do people close games for no reason at all just to reopen new ones?
|Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012|
Apparently someone tried to hack my journal and take it over but luckily I was able to recover everything and get control back of xx_void
but unfortunately some posts and other things were deleted. Pretty sure it was a bot that tried to gain control of everything but just to be on the safe side posts in both communities are going to be moderated for the next few weeks. Bare with me and hopefully everything is back to normal.

STOP HARASSING PEOPLE FOR SLASH LINES. If you can't find a partner to play against your characters in ringrats, the odds are against you because your chances are even more slim when you stalk other writers on their IC aim names. I haven't played in a public game in a couple of years now, but my best friend still does and recently, she's told me about how you've IM'ed multiple
names of hers to ask the same things.
I mean, I never was the be all/end all of rp but as an experienced gamer, here are some tips to get what you want:
A.) Find yourself a tight-knit circle of friends (which is what this genre of rp is all about, LOL, right?!). Play a variety
of things. The less unique and flexible you are as a writer, the less interest you'll pique out of others. When you've built up a desire for people to share a line with YOU, you'll get what you want, regardless of who you play. I know this as a fact.
B.) When you stalked me back in the day, you eventually came out and said that you'll play a line I wanted in return of one for you. This is a good thing. However offer this FIRST. Not everyone writes slash anymore and a good writer who writes a serious, good slash line is hard to find. Make things mutual from the beginning. Someone who writes just for the fun of it, just so see how entertaining or exciting a line could be, will most likely accept the trade-off.
C.) Stop being so persistent. I know you have your reasons for liking a particular pairing but not everyone will see that. Also saying this from experience because I was known to play obscure characters, there may/will come a time when you have to give up. Back in the golden era of rp, this wasn't such a big deal but these days, it is. I know it bites, but when your writing soulmate won't even fill your request, it then becomes a non-issue (btw, writing soulmate who's reading this, have you thought any more about playing against my Keibs ;* ??). I hate to say it but in current times, Primo and Carly aren't even a blip on the radar of the wrestling world. That said, maybe you should look into writing a pb line with a neat plot or maybe a really original au line where the line itself is more important than the faces. The funkiest pairing in the world can be epicly written under these circumstances.
D.) If you find a willing writer who'll play with you, don't be so strict on who they're playing. It's awesome to have a line filled, especially one with the faces you want, but try this: "You play who you want and I'll play who I want." This puts less pressure on the line and you'll come to find how neat it is that it'll begin to write itself.
E.) If all else fails, just play a dummy character that everyone else likes and picture it in your head that it's the pair you wanted.
I don't mean to be a douchebag but I know you're really irritating people with the way you keep harassing them on their characters' names. I know from your point of view, you may be merely asking, but the majority of others don't see it that way. I hope you'll accept the tips I've listed here, try them out, and see what happens.

*dusts off journal*
You know it is a crime to ignore real life friendships specially those that are legitimately there and have been there for a long time. To the people that can, congratulations you have done something I can never do.

I just wanted to post this.
It's not "really" a "rant" but an amusement sorta thing:
Ooooooh, lookie. I'm not even anon. I'm using an actual journal to make these comments.
The anon wars in ringrats
? While funny, are kinda rude to the people that are seeking homes, no? I mean, it's pretty sad when you've got 25 comments on an ad and maybe .... 3 of them are about the homes that are out there and the rest are "anonymous 1, 2 and 3" arguing about the folks at priceline
being "shitty" or any other just wrestling game being "booooorrrrrrring!".
Come on peeps. This place is here for a reason. Entertain the use!
Sorry if this makes no sense. I'm tired. I haven't slept and I am dealing with a bitchy blonde twink inside my head in the form of a character I write. :P Current Mood: geeky

Perhaps it's just me, but to see an application come in to a community where the wrestler/diva's ring name is listed as their real name. Then have the mod's of said community not only accept them into the fold cheerfully. But, also lists them as taken under said ring name, and then introduces them as such.
It's sad, but yet still leaves me greatly amused. Almost makes me miss the wrestling fandom.

Sometimes in life just simply saying, "You know what I have changed my mind I am taking said storyline elsewhere with someone else." actually does wonders. Least you don't leave the other player hanging. Current Mood: aggravated
|Sunday, May 2nd, 2010|
Is it just me, or am I the only one who don't understand the different games whom literally want your first born just to join them?
The fact that your going to ask me personal
information within an application that has nothing to do with my character? Fail. Current Mood: aggravated

This is probably not the place to be doing it but I am voiding all those games that are just invented because someone gets pissed off at a game. No one in particular but I am just tired of seeing games "pop up" with characters that you know were just in other games, requesting characters. It really sucks for those games that are actually established and are having a hard time finding people. Honestly think how many new games have their been in the last week? And how many of those games will still be around in 6 months? Current Mood: grouchy

Some things never change.
I can understand locking posts that are specific to those that are within a group and explaining changes or rules, but if you're going to post a reply to a comment within a post to someone that has exited the group at least have the guts to leave it open so all sides can get the issue out in the open instead of screening it once you get your opinion out on the matter.
Congrats to the new mod at impactrpg
, take all the credit for the group that WE started and go ahead and vilify me and mine because i got sick of seeing the same bitching and complaining day in and day out on the friends page from the same person about the same thing. Enjoy your group of characters that I could play better myself and not have them all be a bunch of tight-loose ass douche bags, and enjoy modding a group who's all 20+ members are all played by the same two-or-three people. And congratulations for pulling the same shit you do everytime someone doesn't kiss your\yours asses, so much for trying to keep who you are and\or who you play a mystery.
And since you went and locked the post because I didn't agree with you, I'll go ahead and put it all out there right here. Get one thing straight, you had nothing to do with making me leave the group, I got tired of seeing the same horrible grammar complaining on my guys' friends page and seeing roles butchered because someone liked the idea of James Storm and Chris Harris playing the parts in Brokeback Mountain or Raven still as a blackout drunk when he's been straight for some time now, and didn't want my guy and his real life best friend at one another's throats because the person playing him is a true blue know-nothing mark that thinks they know what they're talking about in the wrestling business and particularly having to do with key players in TNA like Jeff Jarrett, Dixie Carter, and Vince Russo. In closing, don't let that ego get the better of you because it wasn't your shitty modding that made me leave the game, you were a pissant that I brushed from my shoulder anytime you tried flexing those modly muscles of yours.

I don't care if you don't like a certain person OOC. That doesn't give you the right to treat them like shit in the game. OOC and IC are separate. Didn't you get the memo?

Do you realize that seeing your group, advertised four times within only a couple of hours, only turns me off to the place? Good job! Current Mood: annoyed
