Almost every website that I go to with role-play disappoints me every time. It's not just the horrible writers who are narrow-minded or put no effort into their play, it's also the people full of ego that feel like they must show everyone how smart they are by prepping their writing full of unnecessary vocab words which makes me feel like I'm reading from a textbook (writing is bland, no creative ideas, like a freaking robot). To top it all off, when I don't make my own role-play and join another, I end up running into a bunch of SJs.
I hate rules. But then there are the rules that are completely unnecessary, stupid, pointless, and are just there for the sake of being there. Any change from any member is frowned upon and that member must follow along with the rest of the group. Once, when everyone was role-playing a boring dinner full with small-talk and one-liners, I wrote a scene whereby I wandered off by my own and created my own gunpowder.
Almost immediately after, a mod PM"d me.
"In a magical world, you do not have guns. Please change your role-play to what is setled as the current theme. I further wish to tell you that you are god-modding by making your character seem more special than the other characters. Please follow along with what the other characters are doing."
"Even in a book with the theme of magic, references are made to guns, and guns are even part of magic in certain books. God-modding is the control of other characters, not the independence of a character. I am not making my character special by not following the group because any individual of the group can do it as well. Also, you spelled "setled" wrong. Have a nice day."
I was banned.
It's ridiculous...want to know what kind of rules they have?
1) Keep it at PG-13
2) No mention of substance abuse
3) No role-playing of gays. It's disgusting, would you have sex with a person of the same gender?
PG-13 in the movies allows partial nudity (there was this one movie that was quite heavy on this...couldn't for the life remember what it was), cursing, and graphic scenes of torture. Substance abuse is mild compared to those. And homosexuality....
Anyone as disappointed as I am?
And this is just one of the many crap forums out there....:cry:
