Bitch, I am not writing hooks so you can willfully ignore them or collect them or whatever is it you assholes do when you refuse to have reading comprehension. I'm trying to move the thread along out of stupid meandering oneliners so for fuck's sake. Take a hint.

God I hate snark, sarcasm, oneliners and ironic dialogue. It's stupid and overused.

if this is the player I'm thinking of, it doesn't help that a lot of the time their replies are just one or two words. I know the character's taciturn in canon but give me something to work with, ffs.

i just skimmed back through the log comm and only saw two (though it was quick so i may have missed the third). but both of those were at least open event logs that encouraged tagging around by anyone. they weren't two open logs just to tag the character. or those dumb "catch-all" logs the cliques use.

i always support tagging out into other peoples' posts instead of just making posts waiting for people to come to you, but in this character's case, i feel like the log posts aren't really all that wank worthy.

Speaking as someone who's ignoring those posts, I want to know who you are so I can avoid you. You're an asshole.

When your small super involved game where it's almost impossible to ignore anyone entirely gets the most annoying vampire OC you've ever seen. She is a genius, sci-fi nerd, Hot Topic kid, medical experiment, weird vampire hybrid and the most special snowflake to ever special snowflake. Cotton candy hair and everything. Her app reads like a preteen trying to write a soap opera script. I wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt because of the friend who brought her in but she is so bad.

I'm not so worried about her, because one bad character is easy to put up with in any game. I can handle that. I'm really worried about what happens when she starts bringing in friends playing more special snowflake OCs. Our game's other OC comes from a crazy alien world but at least she is relatively normal.

If you're gonna throw a shitfit every time a mod-approved villain plot doesn't end with the bad guy getting caught, curbstomped, and punished to the point where they're basically unplayable?

Maybe don't play in a game that's set up to allow villain plots.

When there is a game whose premise you like with players and characters you want to play with... but it is a relatively small game where there are three people you distinctly loathe who would be nearly impossible to avoid if you apped in.

Damn them for already being someplace I was very interested in until I realized they were there!!!

This is a dumb pet peeve, I acknowledge that, and you do you.

But.

I HATE it when games give you animals/pets/childish companions that players can RP, because it always devolves to annoying attempts to be cute. I'd be okay with it if they aimed for funny instead of cute, but I've grown up with too many Scrappy-Doos, Slimers, Snarfs, Orkos, etc. to ever enjoy the wacky adorable sidekick. I want to interact with the player's actual character, not the vomit-inducing sugar tumor.

When all languages are automatically translated in game but people still have Japanese (or non-japanese characters in some cases) characters use suffixes or slip in random Japanese words.

'Oh, Bob-sama! It is great to see you!'

'Nani!?!? I cannot believe you said that Ryo-chan!'

Everything is translated completely, no wiggle room, stop.

Is it too much to ask for substance when receiving tags, ESPECIALLY if they're being made in a log comm and not a network? This isn't an ECATS game. My character's got a lot of thoughts and hooks for you and all you've given me is flat dialogue with little to no action whatsoever. Thaaaaaanks a bunch.

(Anonymous) 2016-09-22 10:59 pm (UTC)(link)
people who are total sweethearts ooc, put a lot of thought into their characters and tags, submit player plots regularly, tag out and tag back consistently...

and are boring as fuck, both ic and ooc. this person's mentioned that their threads get dropped a lot, and that they feel like they're shouting into the void on plurk, and after reading their plurks and rping with them, yeah. i can see why. i feel bad but how are you this bland?

People who respond to my every rp wishes/plot with me/cr meme with vague "omg I want cr with you" and then blow me off every time I try to follow that up with solid plans: why you do this?

With most of these people, we're not friends or castmates, we don't share close CR, and there's no social pressure for you to play with me or give the appearance of wanting to play with me. Stop saying you want CR if you don't and both of us will be happier.

small games dominated by a single group of players who don't allow anyone else play with their plot. is there a secret way around this or is this game a bust?

Mod specifically said the end of this plot was to NOT kill off this particular character, since we just did that in the last plot. So you immediately turn around and say your character is going to kill off the character...

Um, okay.

I like this player for the most part, but I feel like I'm constantly being infomodded by them. It's minor enough that I'd feel like a whiner if I brought it up, but it's extra annoying because their infomodding is usually wrong. My character is an unreliable narrator in their canon and that's how I write their introspection. Your character shouldn't be getting any "feelings" about mine's internal monologue because half of that is a lie and none of it is outwardly visible.

I cannot win
I can't believe I'm getting so much CR that I have to choose between ignoring plots with my established friends or being called a flake or cliquish or unfriendly
I literally can't win no matter what I choose to do and that fucking sucks

I wish people would understand I can't do everything and just let me play

maybe if you didn't expend all your attention and energy on your shiny new game, you wouldn't be so annoyed to have to scrap for ac for your other game. the fact you're readily admitting people from that game defriended you on plurk because you didn't tag them enough (read: at fucking all), and the fact i only ever see you plurk about this game when you need ac, should tell you something about your priorities.
