A note to our followers

It has come to our attention that cyber bullying within the Glee RP community has hit a head again. People seem to think it’s funny to point out flaws and imperfections in other people. They think that because they’re just typing words into a screen without giving away their real identity, that they’re not doing any harm. It’s easy to vent out your opinions of someone when you don’t have to face the consequences. 

The fact of the matter is, bullying is real. Even if it seems fun, or comical to some. You might look at a comment someone’s made and enjoy the sweet trainwreck that is seeing someone else demolished in words. It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt, and people do get hurt. We all play characters here. But just because you’re looking at someone who identifies themselves as Finn Hudson, or Rachel Berry, or Blaine Anderson - that doesn’t mean there’s not a real human being behind the screen. 

What seems like comic relief to you, or a vent of something you feel needed to be said, could be world shattering to someone else. Come on guys, we all work hard on our personas. There isn’t a single person here who half asses their characters. We’re all trying and doing our best, and if we fail we deserve help and responsible critique, not flat out hate. The internet is by no means a safe place, but roleplaying is a safe haven for a lot people. We come here to have fun, to embrace being someone we’re not for a little while, to make friends. We’re all real people, and everyone deserves to be treated with respect. I know this long message might sound silly to you, but think about it. Think about your friends, and think about your loved ones, and think about yourself - How would it feel if it was someone you cared about being bullied? All it takes is one comment. One comment can shatter a life, and I don’t think people realize that. 

We all roleplay characters from a show that’s trying to teach us about diversity and acceptance, come on guys. Our suggestion here is, the next time you see someone who doesn’t portray their character correctly, or does something you don’t like, tell them. Be kind, and respect their rights as a fellow human being. Even if you have to do it anonymously. Submit them how to guides that might assist in bettering their writing. Try to make it better, not mock them for their faults. Nobody can improve if they aren’t given guidance. If all else fails, the unfollow button is really useful for making sure you don’t have to see what they’re up to again. They don’t have to affect your world, and you don’t have to affect theirs. 

This was all written out for a specific reason, for asks we’ve been getting recently. We’re not going to blacklist. We’re not going to signal boost all the reasons that hate blogs should be reported and unfollowed. We’re not going to put a name on anything. Just know, we got your asks, and if you want something to signal boost about the topic… then signal boost this. 

When did roleplay become so centered around mocking other people and shoving hate down people’s throats? Is that really what we’re here for?

I just wanted to give a shoutout to Brandi - she’s the Puck to my Rachel and a few others across Tumblr. She plays Puck with an interesting depth that a lot of people tend to ignore, her writing is top notch and she’s a total sweetie OOC. Brandi, you’re an all around awesome player that I love to work with! Keep up the incredible work.

menage-a-puck over at epolygleerp is without a doubt one of the greatest Pucks I’ve ever seen. He already has such great depth as a character and he’s more than just your resident badass, which you don’t see often enough in the Puck RP world. He’s so IC and so original at the same time, and I love it! Kudos to the player for being awesome.

I just wanna give a big thank you to my RP partner of almost 3 or 4 months, Teghs. No matter what RP I audition for with her, she’s always managed to wow and impress me with all of her creativity/originality when it comes to her characters. She’s also become my best friend, and I love her to pieces. She’s the best Anderson (andercaled) a Smythe could ask for.

I just want to say a huge thank you to Michelle for being so incredibly awesome to RP with and get to know out of character. Whether she’s the Quinn to my Sam over at ask-ladyquinn or doing one of our many other ships, she is flawless each and every time. She’s the kind of person you want to rp with; reliable, friendly and always happy to shake things up in a plot. Much love!

I miss Faberry at what-if-glee-rpg! :( They were the best, they were always talking and plotting and paring, it was amazing. But in the last few months, it seems like they are not even friends anymore. The rpers used to be so close and really cute together, and now, it seems like something is wrong. I just want them back, please. I miss you girls. :(

blainedevon-nyc and kurt-loves-fashion do not get enough credit! I’ve been following them since day one and I’ve never seen a better Klaine. Their storyline is so heartbreaking but you can see how much the two characters love each other. The way they’ve dealt with some of the issues is perfect too, as some of them are incredibly triggering. Well done to them!!
