This is just a few things I’ve noticed that have a tendency to build or break an RP. These are just some suggestions that I hope enhance your admin experience!

Requested by anon, I will be making a guide on how to review and accept your applications. This guide will explain the core things that admins should look into while accepting applications and deciding which player should be selected to bring to life a written character.

You’re not sure how to tell the admin(s) this news, so you’re planning on deactivating or simply never logging into that account for, say, the next five hundred years. Don’t!

As requested by anonymous, a simple guide (more accurately, a list of important plot points, so not too in depth), broken down by episode, to remember when auditioning/playing out a canon season five Rachel Berry!

Please keep in mind that this does reference both Finn Hudson and The Quarterback, and I skipped Previously Unaired Christmas as it’s not ‘canon’ for this timeframe.

HOW TO HANDLE OOC ISSUES IN YOUR ROLEPLAY

I’ve been an admin on and off for the past two years now, and I’ve encountered my fair share of OOC issues in roleplays - from players who plain and simple break the rules of your roleplay to players who create drama with others and make the roleplay a hostile environment.
