tmw you see people on plurk talking about apping their crau to a game and talking about the players and how their apping will mess with the characters ready in the game.

So much second hand embarrassment and feeling sorry for the players in that game

as a crau player who checked in with potential castmates before so much as talking about apping, i am embarrassed by those people

I think I've seen the plurk in question and it was really awkward and uncomfortable.

It's obvious they don't intend to check with the existing players. Then again, what can you expect from refugees from a game that went down in the flames of wank.

and this right here is just one of the many reasons crau characters shouldn't be allowed in the vast majority of games.

ugh that reminds me of when someone apped into a cast i was in with her crau version that had fucking 3-4 years of being in a previous game. the way the mun played her not only didn't resemble the character at all, but she was so clearly more wrapped up in her past game to focus on the current one she was in.

Why are people so allergic to discussing relevant headcanons with new/prospective castmates? I'm not asking to vet yours or impose mine, I just want to know what the heck's going on in this thread.

The players CR that's most interesting to play with only ever tag around in short, frantic bursts once or twice a month.

people who ignore any attempt to talk to them oocly or have CR with them for six months but want to be my bff and talk about how much they love my character the second I get a plot/item. i'm not that stupid or that desperate and i know you'll drop our cr again as soon as you get what you're after so why not stop wasting both our time and just ask?

talking on plurk about how you might just let a character idle out when activity check only closed a couple of days ago is the biggest dick move. you have done nothing with this character since you apped in february, just use the drop post instead of squatting for another month.

People really seemed to want to play this plot that would have ramifications for the whole game. But now playing out the full effect of said plot instead of sweeping them under the rug and going back to status quo makes them all fall silent.

one of my rp patners occasionally asks on plurk if anyone wants to boomerang and i'll usually offer if i'm around. but they keep giving me one or two tags then dropping the entire thread. i'm fine not boomeranging or idk if you've suddenly decided you don't want to rp with me but at least tell me so i stop offering?

or i guess i could take a damn hint but i enjoy when tagging does happen enough to keep coming back. or maybe i just enjoy hurting myself.

If your character is a walking spoiler for a new canon and you're concerned about that, maybe don't play them in a public game space yet? Instead of just removing their canon label wtf

A minor one, but don't ask me to remind you to post, tag, etc. I hate being someone's RP babysitter, and I don't enjoy nagging people constantly to keep things moving along. Write yourself a sticky note, use the tracking feature, set a calendar reminder, whatever. Keep track of your responsibilities so I don't have to juggle your character and mine.

please stop having your character be the lead on every single fucking plot. I hate complaining that someone is too active and that's not even it! It's just that if there's an opportunity for the character to be the hero, she's there volunteering first and then doing the bare minimum to get it done, and not pursuing the CR after!

Jesus let other people have a chance to do shit for a change, settle the fuck down.

Petty peeve but: people who make comments on CR memes before they've finished writing their blurb and then edit it after they're done just so they can be on PAGEONE.

Especially if they don't edit it for hours.

here's a tip for all you sensitive souls out there: if you're ~uncomfy~ with the possibility of your character getting temporarily killed during a mod event, maybe don't join a SURVIVAL HORROR game. especially not if that game has mod-rolled death encounter mechanics. if you hate the idea so much, just drop already. stop giving the rest of us decent players secondhand embarrassment when you whine to the mods in a titfit.

When a character is meant to be close with your character because of a game mechanic (roommates or coworkers, for example) but they never tag you back except once a week.

We've kind of handwaved that our characters are good friends because they've worked out some secrets about each other but I really would like there to be some actual evidence of that.

when someone you dislike and decided to avoid plans to app into your main game.

they haven't done anything ban worthy or anything worth going to the mods over. they're just an asshole personality-wise. i know, i know, put on my big girl panties and all that crap. but gdi i just want to whine about this. i thought i was done seeing this person around and now they're going to be smearing their ass all over my game.
