The regular result of going on memes, contacting or being contacted by a player, being asked to start a meme/psl, writing a starter, talking more about it with the other player to sure everything is a-okay and the way they want and then they never tag it. Just sits there, a starter they asked for, tailored to meet their needs.

Certainly, no one is obligated to play with anyone, but why do all of that and waste another person's (and your own) time? I just don't understand the thought behind it.

I've been on both the receiving and giving end of this. And being on the former really sucks because you're just left going ??? but what did I do?

Sometimes it is because the starter sucked or was not quite so "what you discussed" as you thought. Or you realize that you said you wanted you don't want anymore. Sometimes something comes up and the person just doesnt get to the reply and moves on or forgets to go back or just isn't quite sure what to do now. sometimes you get this great idea and you know what you want to see but can't quite make the words to get there.

When I played mostly in memes at first this was a real bug up my butt. I discovered that I had to pull back my investment a lot and expect to only get replies to maybe one in three starters, and for maybe only one of those to get more than three replies in.

Meme-RP is a slog for that. I've since abandoned bakerstreet for games because at least people tend to be interested in carrying threads and building CR with lasting consequences.

Is this meme offensive? I'm pretty sure I'm offended by this meme.

yep, +1. i actively try not to go full on tumblr about stuff but imo this is pretty tasteless and i'm super sick of this stereotype dominating media everywhere.

yes, it's offensive, but what do we expect from the current internet fandom culture that loves to collect gay people like pokemon?

idk man people just care way too much about what other people are posting

i guess my pet peeve is that instead of making or posting to the things they want, anons run here to piss themselves over what's already on bs like there's some kinda space limit

i agree for the most part. we went from having a completely mia mod and free run on memes, to a kind of odd overpolicing and scheduling of something that's an open community. it's overcompensation and now that they know someone's listening, they're whining more than they should.

a little musedumping is fine. everyone does it from time to time, especially if you actively play several characters but there should be a limitation, especially when you rarely tag back or don't have any interest in actually playing the characters. what's the point of posting almost two pages' worth other than what? to show off that you have usernames and characters? you don't have to tag out, but show some restraint.

the pettiest of pet peeves, but I always get a little skeeved out at seeing those Band of Brothers/The Pacific type characters on memes because a: some of the people they're based on are still alive which b: makes the fact that they're 100% in it just for the cock a little gross

Re: MEME PET PEEVES

tbh it's no different than celeb rp for me. if it's based on real people that heavily, it shouldn't be welcome here even if it's told historically.
