when you can't enjoy your negative CR because the other player is taking everything personally

I cannot fucking stand this. Worse when you also have positive cr with the same player and different characters and they still get butthurt and take the negative cr personally.

I would usually sympathize with this because I play a lot of assholes, but I've come upon a couple of players recently who have played their asshole characters like that facet is the only version of them that exists. I don't necessarily want negative CR with them and they are cramming it down my throat, having their character take offense at the tiniest hint of sarcasm in my tags.

Not saying this is you, just saying yeah I'm taking this personally. It feels like I'm not good enough to have positive CR with you because I'm not licking your ass on plurk.

There's a player at my game who thinks her character is right about everything and will actually talk to you OOCly to discuss why your character is wrong and what they can do to fix it and get their precious positive CR back.

I said I'm cool with negative CR and they took it super personally and started PPing me about why I should change my mind about my character's behavior. I shrugged and said my character is a jerk. She got angry because apparently her character is so charming and smart and she wanted them to manipulate my character into loving her's (a plot she's tried to play with pretty much every damn person in this game). She's never tagged me again but I see her getting PA at me in other people's plurks sometimes.

I want to namedrop but she's a mod friend at a smaller, usually under the radar game. If I decide to drop, I will.

Labeling the participants of your log with nicknames that doesn't mean jackshit to anyone outside of your group isn't giving the impression that you're open to CR

If you're doing to do nothing but thread with your castmates, take it to a fucking musebox.

Re: GAME PET PEEVES

are you sure that's all they're doing? or is that just what they're doing the most where you can see it? because frankly, this comes off as 'hdu have cr that isn't outside your cast in a game where people have to watch it' instead of them focusing on just tagging outside of it? when does it stop being 'just threading with your castmates' and 'enough outside cr that i'll stop being a judgmental fuck'?

when someone who used to tag once a day becomes someone who only tags once a week.

we've been in backtag hell for months now, stop asking for new threads and wrap up your old ones!

(Anonymous) 2016-10-19 09:58 am (UTC)(link)
Those months where only your 'aimless small talk that I could take or leave' threads and your 'not really feeling this scene but I'm hanging on for the other player' threads are being tagged back while every single one of your exciting 'I love everyone in this bar, this is why I RP' threads are collecting dust week after week.

this, this, my kingdom for never having to go through this again

in my game, there are three or four characters that I love threading with and who are important cr for my char, but who can't seem to ever get past five tags in a thread no matter how stoked they sound on plurk. I tear my hair out every time I swear to god, but I never learn not to tag them.

Speaking as someone who also has to deal with this bullshit, crit them for being slow and dropping threads. I did this while tacking on they seem to have no problem with characterization. You either get the people who get their shit together or the ones who whine endlessly about it. Never tag the latter back again and cut your losses.

Or you can PM/PP them about it. Whatever floats your boat I just chose to make it official crit.

when your character gets to be nothing but a plot device for your castmate's ship

I'm starting to get very tired of people apping into a game, not making any open threads, and not tagging into open threads, and then complaining about how unwelcoming the game is.

Or giving an open thread with absolutely no fucking hook and then complaining that the only people who tag them are castmates and no one else wants to tag them.

When you agree to do a slow burn ship with somebody, then another character comes along and the other two players ship with the character that was planned to be shipped with mine.

(Anonymous) 2016-10-26 03:50 pm (UTC)(link)
this has happened to me, anon, and it's the absolute worst. i'm sorry that it also happened to you.

this happened with me a while back with a 4th party pushing the second ship into turbo gear to watch from the sidelines

after some talks we resolved it with a 3 way ship that worked really well

"I never clear out my inbox."

"Apping another character later this month!"

I wouldn't care if they didn't app castmates that I can't easily ignore.

WHY DOES IT TAKE YOU FOURTEEN DAYS TO GIVE ME A TWO SENTENCE REPLY

you sit there and go on and on about how this is CR you are super excited about and then don't tag me back for two weeks on a thread

normally i would not give a shit but this particular player does thread trackers so they constantly are showcasing all the other (usually psl) tags they're working on

like... why are you in this game... if you're not gonna tag in it...
