when your character explains something in a top-level tag and the people replying ask you to explain the exact thing your character explained in the tag. they're not asking for specifics on a piece of the explanation, they're not asking you to expand more on what you have. they're just repeating a request for the exact same information that your character has already provided.

did you even read my tag? i'm temped to c/p and see if they notice. i was willing to give them the benefit of the doubt the first time this happened in our thread, like maybe i was explaining poorly. but this has happened twice now within the span of 10 tags between us. i know it's not unclear because other characters responding got it.

dumb or can't read. not tagging again, but this is ridiculous in a reading hobby.

this is why I play characters that would respond by telling those characters that they already explained it, and then concernedly (genuine or false depending on who I'm playing) asking if they're feeling all right

just drop. you haven't posted anything or tagged out in months, you don't even mention this game on plurk anymore, and the time i brought it up and asked if you wanted to plan anything to help your character get more active, it just fizzled out into nothing. drop so i can stop wondering if your character needs to be taken into account when i plan things for mine.

i have someone doing this exact thing rn. my character would icly be very concerned about theirs apparently falling off the face of the earth. except they havent even mentioned if theyre putting them on autopilot or not, so they left a case of schrodingers cr

if its really been months since they did anything or even mentioned the game, take it to the mods. especially if youre dealing with an inactive castmate. i know thats what im about to do.

if you want to try talking to the player about it first, give it a shot. make sure to bring up evidence either way.

I don't mind if you ask for suggestions on how to get more involved, honestly. I get stumped every now and again too.

What I do mind is when you shoot down every suggestion about how it won't work, without offering any sort of alternative idea or compromise. I'm not psychic, I can't begin to guess what you like. If you want CR, give me something to work with. Characters of mine that characters of yours want to meet, icons you'd like to use more, scenario settings or genres, anything.

Double rage points if you say 'idk whatever you want lol' and then shoot down those suggestions too.

1. You play a profiler. A pretty genius profiler. No, not Sherlock... but another one. I'm giving your character all sorts of shit to notice and/or react to in my tags, and yet you ignore all of them. All. Of. Them. Clearly you're character is failing all his perception and spot checks.

2. I like prose. Prose is my preferred writing style. I never understood the term purple prose because I never came across it. Then you showed up to my game. Three paragraphs of introspection, one line of dialogue, and, if I'm really lucky an action! Yeah... I'm done tagging you.

FOR 1, PM THEM AND TELL THEM THAT IT WOULD BE FUN IF THEIR CHAR NOTICED SOME STUFF. THEY MAY HAVE GOTTEN A LOT OF SHIT FOR FOURTHWALLING OR NOTICING THE WRONG STUFF IN ANOTHER GAME. THE PLAYER MAY BE A IDIOT IRL. THERE ARE LOTS OF REASONS WHY THIS ISNT WORKING FOR YOU, BUT THE GOOD NEWS IT, YOU CAN USE COMMUNICATION TO MAKE THINGS BETTER.

Having a character involved in a thread where the subject of establishing a player run system of laws/government and realizing that ICly my character would absolutely be in favor of it and spearheading setting it up but also knowing that this sort of thing is OOCly a TERRIBLE IDEA and always ends in a wanky disaster. So much characterization bending to come up with reasons to not go down this path.

you could always run a plot where you set it up to fail. that might actually be fun.

put your character into it. have them become more and more fanatical about implementing the law. corrupt them by developing cr with villainous characters who would abuse the legal system for their own means. have your closest cr take your character down before they go too far. turn your ic police force into a villain plot. do it.

When the mods are so reluctant to change anything the previous mod team wrote that the FAQ still has information that's completely false now.

Re: GAME PET PEEVES

(Anonymous) 2016-06-22 01:56 am (UTC)(link)
as a former mod, that sounds like an oversight. when I signed on, it was as a replacement for an old mod team amd there was a staggering amount of wrong/conflicting info that took literally months to find and overhaul.

why not take a minute to point out the inconsistency in the faq and ask for clarification? any mod worth their salt would appreciate the gesture.

canonmate, I'm sorry that my character can't fuck yours in the butt, but you have dropped every thread with me 2-3 comments in. You don't just do it to me, so I'm not taking it personally. You only finish threads with a handful of people, all of whom are dudes you ship yours with on some level, and you don't even try with anyone else. Get your shit together, you utter flake and stop starting 800 meme threads every week when you drop everything like this, even those meme threads.

If all you want to do is play shippy bullshit, stay out of games and go meme, instead. I'm a shipper. I love shipping. If the game you're apping to is not a sex game or a hugbox, and the thing you care about most is shipping, then gtfo.

The worst thing isn't that you are constantly freaking out on plurk about how awful you feel after your most recent vacation weekend, or that your job is mean to you because you slack on everything you're supposed to do. Not the worst thing is that when you do manage to tag, you're too busy tagging to (knock this shit off) and about your own other muse. If all you want to do is rave about your facetwins why not write fic and stop wasting everyones times.

Why can't there be rules in place to punish people who are on activity warning lists month after month? They know when ac is. They just know there will always be someone to ping them at the very last second, too.

Character A makes a voice post:

Rainy days suck.

[A is having a bad hair day due to the humidity]


Character B:

You should use better conditioner!


How does your character know what A was talking about player of B? How???

when someone has been such a nonentity with their character for so long (without calling hiatus or extenuating circumstances) that you actually have to go to the mods about it

thanks for being too selfish to drop and leaving your cr in limbo there pal

(Anonymous) 2016-07-02 04:36 am (UTC)(link)
What the fuck do you do when a character keeps using one of their traits/ flaws for the same plot repeatedly, whenever given the chance? Like in the history of this game they've done it at least 4+ times. Same outcome, they're unwilling to have their character be permanently fixed so that they can keep doing it whenever they please.

Example: Mary is a werewolf. She rampages. She rampages. She rampages. She rampages.

Oh sure, go on a hiatus a week after coming back from your last hiatus. I'm hardly the first one to complain about people hiatusing, but you do this every fucking month. Hiatus for a full month, show up just long enough to do minimal tags to pass AC, and hiatus for another month. Just admit you don't have the time to RP and drop already.

Shitty writers with terrible characterization. Bonus points if they're in your canon and they wank IC about your character because you play them thinking their character is acting weird and your character doesn't like the pod person theirs has inexplicably become. Triple bonus for when your character isn't even friends with theirs in canon in the first place and they do that.
