When your game is at a standstill because literally half the players are squatters. If at least a few don't get dropped in this current AC, I'm just going to drop myself.

i think it's super dumb when games ask for less log tags than network tags on the threads you submit for ac, as if people didn't do short spamming stuff in logs or long thoughtful stuff on the network (or change to action in the middle of those).

i wish more games had just one general IC community tbh. i always thought that, but i think it's even more doable nowadays. networks aren't as spammy as they used to be, and month catch-all logs are super popular that now, and those very often include a network option anyway. (though adding an action option is always i see on network posts too, just not as often).

plus one thousand, actually

unless the game you play in has a very strong focus on prose and is comprised almost entirely of a playerbase who prefers to write 300+ word comments for every log comment (which is a rarity these days), there's really no reason for it.

it's to discourage people from living on the network

If there's a game-wide HMD, and you opt out of anon comments, I judge you.

Re: GAME PET PEEVES

Yeah, same. I know there might be valid reasons for preferring non-anon crit, but looking at my game's HMD and seeing who opted out of anon comments is like being handed a who's who list of problem players (either wanky or very OOC).

Yeah I'm sure there are some reasonable players that still opt out of anon, but in my experience it always seems like a way to either discourage crit altogether, or ensure that you can shittalk or avoid anyone who crits you.

if being on the ac warning list sends you into a frothing panic, maybe games aren't for you.

that or do your shit on time.

When you have a planned and agreed upon ship and you keep seeing that other character flirting and cuddling with other characters. Like, thanks for telling me you're not interested anymore and making me feel resentful and like shit. Dropping them like it's hot.

- flakes crying essays on how people flake on them

- "I wish the mods would raise AC to get rid of all barely active people. I'm not active myself, lol, since AC is so low, I don't have motivation to be more active" if you need higher AC to put pressure on you, you're doing it wrong.

the same two people jumping from game to game to play their shitty ship, ignore all CR attempts, cry when no one wants to play with them, and then move to another game. ad nauseum, rinse and repeat.

people who join a game with mechanics they don't like for cast/friends/because it's the new shiny

and then spend all their time crying about how much the game sucks and going to the mods begging that the mechanics be changed

"this sol game doesn't have enough plot," "this game that isn't 1:1 needs to be 1:1," "this horror game needs to have opt-outs for every event, i don't want to deal with horror" "why can't this au game accept ou characters"

bonus points if they escalate to some kind of self-righteous THESE MODS SUCK, THEY CAN'T ACCEPT CRITICISM tantrum about it but it's obnoxious even if they just sit around and whine. i swear there's been at least a few of these in every big game i've been in and it chaps my ass every time

when a player tags back all the replies to their post/top level except one or two, so when you scroll past you see a bunch of threads and one glaringly lonely reply. it just seems rude and i'm always sorry for that person.

every time i app into a game stuff suddenly stops happening on time. this isnt a one game fluke this is a multiple game thing.

if they do intro logs x day at about x time since the game opened, and then i've been accepted and am very excited to intro, it doesn't get posted until at least a day late. if theyve rolled out app responses at midnight sharp for the past 6 months, the cycle i app in wont get responses until 4pm. event schedules change. the whole shebang.

how can i utilize this gift for good

every time ive scolded myself for getting salty over this because it's stupid of me i see it happen again and i am salty anew.

when people boomerang specific friends but drag out other threads by giving them a tag once every four days. damn at least tag your whole inbox once a day if you're boomeranging for two days straight? that this one particular thread is 6x longer than all the others?

and since it's midmonth i know it's not a scramble for AC or something. idgi. if you wanna boomerang your bff just stick to psls.

if you just wanna play with certain people? stop posting open logs and posts.

there are these fucking shit writers in my game who have literally barely responded to my tags. like. there's no dialogue or significant action. the character just moves their hand and thinks a little while saying nothing. wtf?

another one has no reading comprehension or seems to ignore my character tried to shoulder them aside.

i'll take slow people and grammar mistakes any day. just not this.

when someone mentions in a tag that their character is taller/shorter than mine, but a 2 second google search would tell them that they're wrong. I'll give it a pass if their character doesn't have a canon height but if we BOTH have our characters' heights clearly listed in their journals then why aren't you actually checking that shit?

People who join multiple games, thus over extending themselves way too far, and not being able to devote any real time to any of their games. This is frequently coupled with getting immediately overwhelmed and complaining about their inbox then doing nothing. It's not just chronic flakes, either. My go-to folks of good, solid handling of tags have picked up this habit. They think a "system" will help them (ie only tagging certain games on certain days) but that means they're only tagging each log once or twice a week. Even in very time sensitive logs.

I used to love being in games. Now with this trend so popular, I can't stand it.

People who app in to a cast for a canon known for Teamwork Together and then constantly blow off all of their castmates.

I get it, you want to smash barbies and ship with your buttbuddy, but you're pissing the rest of us off.

a new game shows up with a stricter ac to prevent flakes and all of the flakes start rallying about how the ac is sooooooooo steep and it's not doable.

if the ac is too steep, then don't play in it. it's as simple as that. no one wants your flaky ass.

Read my app. If you're going to make big sweeping statements that reflect my character's backstory, at least skim it. You're contradicting what I've been playing in game for months.
