i feel so discouraged to join rp's because that indie text format is everywhere. I have nothing against gif icons and small texts, but I just miss when everything was uniformed and traditional. I still use the right punctuations and gif size like a normal person.

Honestly, it’s not everywhere. What’s hilarious about what you’ve picked up on, though, is that I think the indie trends are being picked up to make it more uniform? Like if everyone used small text and gif icons, think of how neat and contained the dash would be? In any case, I do agree. People getting crazy with the formatting are putting too much time in aesthetics without making the same improvements in their writing, in most cases. It’s just a bit useless which is why (outside of small hq gifs and small text) I’ve not really bothered.
