i constantly see posts from people complaining about the rpc nowadays and i just….yeah it changed over the years but…complaining about the fact that people call poisonous people out?? complaining about the fact that people don’t tolerate others playing “darker” themes like incest?? i don’t see anything wrong with that. if anything, i’m fucking glad all the nasties in the community get their asses called out in the hope of making others feel safer.
then, there’s always people complaining about how some players use contained themes and how we used to use the most simple ones?? if you want to use a simple theme, then go for it. no one’s forcing you to follow trends? no ones shoving the contained themes down your throat. no one’s saying you have to use a contained theme? i use the same, most simple theme for my character accounts and have roleplayed with people who used a contained one. did they tell me to change it and to use a contained one instead? no, they fucking didn’t.
there’s complaints about how everything needs to be tagged nowadays and i’m just….at a loss here…. like….. if one of your followers asks you to tag something that makes them uncomfortable then the least you can do is tag that shit!?!?? it’s not that hard? just put that fucking tag in there… make people feel safe on this hellsite!!!
yeah, this community is a pile of shit and there’s some new bullshit going down every day but if you don’t want to be a part of that then here’s a tip: unfollow the people. make your dashboard your comfortable place but help others feel the same way when they ask you to! surround yourself with people you like! turn down people you don’t like! the community as a whole will never go back to what it was six years ago—thank fuck! but you have the power to make this your safe place regardless.
