I’ve been roleplaying for about five years now, and I figured I’d give a little advice when it comes to being an admin, based on past experiences as a member, and a mod. 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!

With the return of Glee starting up on Friday, and surely a burst of new roleplays and characters coming forward, we thought we’d make a simple guide to remind you of canon facts about Rachel Berry and her past, up to the end of season five.

In other words, how to create advertisements and effectively market your roleplay. This guide will touch on tagging, graphics, and description. The information in this guide was gathered by me while attending a graphic design and marketing class. I hope it helps!
As an admin, I know how frustrating it is when you have to search through anon messages, hiatuses and regular character conversations just to find old/new applications. In this guide I will teach you how to create a folder dedicated to all of your applications that only YOU will be able to see as the admin.
So, as a fellow Briton, I felt it was time someone made a set of guides to aid those who don’t know Britain. On countless occasions, I see roleplays being made set in England, or more specifically London, and people are acting as if it is America. So, my first guide is specific to school roleplays;
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. This will also be especially helpful when it comes down to having more than one person apply for a role and you can’t decide which will portray the character better. Please like/reblog if this helped you in any way.
So you got in, great! Or maybe… not so great? For one reason or another, now you want to leave. 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! Quitting properly is so much more respectful and less guilt ridden, so let me share some tips (from the perspective of an admin and a player) on how best to do that.
In honor of my roleplay reaching it’s eight month anniversary this month, I’ve decided just to share a few of my admining tips with you all who are looking to have a roleplay run for more than just a couple of weeks. These are my personal tips that have worked greatly for my co admin and I, but it might just not be your cup of tea. If any of these tips were helpful to you in any way, please like or reblog, thank you!
Are you bored of the same old activities set in a restaurant/coffee shop/overused setting? Well sigh no more, because under the cut is a list of ideas for paras (for both couples and groups) that may help. It can also be used for events, especially in school, town, or city roleplays.
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.
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. Hopefully, this guide will shed some light on how to deal with those things, and if you have any questions or need any specific advice, my ask box is open.
