Pull up a chair, we need to have a talk. You guys. You guys. If you’re in a group chat, it is an absolute requirement that you contribute to discussion, now more so than ever before. It’s not optional. If you’re there and you took a limited spot and you’re just sitting there waiting for the RP to start without contributing anything? Nothing is going to happen.
This should be a very basic concept but you can’t make your partners drag your dead weight around for you. Nobody likes it, nobody wants to do it, and you are actively making it harder for everybody else by passively refusing to offer up anything of value. You can only say, “I’m cool with whatever!” so many times before you’re effectively about as useful as a bag of potatoes everybody else has to lug around.
If a group chat goes quiet? Do not just sit there waiting for this dead horse to get back up and start running again, and for God’s sake, do not complain it died while you sit there and do nothing to prevent it! Do you know what keeps a chat alive? Discussion, questions, prompting for more information, anything except whining that manages to contribute nothing!
I’m begging you. I’m coming to the population of Cherubplay on my hands and knees, begging. Stop letting group chats suffer in the agony of limbo. Keep discussion alive by actually offering ideas that have merit. Have preferences. Know what you want. And for the love of all that is good and just in this world, don’t pitch a fit over a problem that’s easily solved.
