Hi, everyone! Hope you’re all well. There’s just a few things we’d like to brush up on and we figured throwing a post together would be the most efficient way. We may as well just dive right in.
Firstly, if you’re posting a starter, make sure to check the starter tag first. See any starters with five notes or less? Try to reply to these first before you post one. That way, nobody gets left out and everybody feels involved. The main goal is to have a thriving community that everyone feels a part of at the end of the day.
Another point to cover is bubble rping. This isn’t a catastrophic issue, although we have picked up some instances of it. For example, we know there are plenty of well developed ships and brotps in the group. We love that! Reading into all of these connections is testament to how passionate and wonderful this bunch of writers is.
This doesn’t mean, however, that you should just reply to threads with those characters.
This is a group rp for a reason and all of our characters are here to interact with a multitude of others, not just a select handful. Make sure you aren’t just chasing up one thread with one character and that you always have a few different ones on the go.
Lastly, we’d like to emphasise that while we encourage creativity of all kinds, starters should be accessible to everyone. This means anything that god-mods another character doing something is not the route to take.
For example, this:
Name watched the stranger spill yogurt on their top. “Do you want a napkin?”
Is not the best kind of starter, as it puts someone else’s character in a situation that might not necessarily suit them so the mun may not feel that they can reply. As we said, we want everyone to be as happy as can be, so posting starters that are accessible to everyone will minimise feeling left out if people don’t reply because they aren’t sure how to.
Whew, I feel like I just gave a valedictorian speech. I hope that all made sense and as always, thanks for being such a lovely group, it makes any admin work worth it! We’re always trying to make things better around here so you can all enjoy yourselves as much as possible. Have a nice rest of your night or day!
Like the bpd anon, I think I have avpd (again all the symptoms) with some possible disorder affecting my mood (could be bpd or schizophrenia) how would I bring it up to a parent (mom probably) that I want to see a professional or how would I tell my doctor about my problems?
