people who approach me out of the blue for CR over and over again but then expect me to do all the leg work of setting everything up, icly meet their character's very exacting standards for who they're willing to interact with, and then gently nudge them into tagging the thing we agreed to thread are the actual worst.

how do i keep attracting these people?

you play characters they want to bang and their characters are proxies for that thirst

If you make AC using 6 threads that you've only tagged to once or twice, I judge you. Tagging out is pointless if you don't actually tag.

Oh no, poor you! Your canon clique got broken up by pesky crosscanon CR and a canonmate who is actually going to play in the game and branch out and let themselves be inspired by CR that develops in their threads instead of focusing on you and your undynamic ass.

Go moan in a corner more. Your canonmate is not the problem here. You are.

talk to them about it? if you feel like you aren't having many threads and your characters should be close, just approach them.

use


my


opt out posts


i have them for a reason. they're there so that if you're not comfortable with me tagging you, you can just tell me. the characters i play are not everyone's cup of tea and i know this. i point out that i have opt-out posts in every intro plurk and cr meme. comments are screened so you don't have to worry about being singled out.

if you're so agonized over the thought of me tagging you why don't you use the posts i set up explicitly so that no one feels obligated to put with my characters' bullshit.

I do the same thing and there are people who so obviously don't want me to tag them but won't use my opt out posts. I've had some people do some really weird things because they so obviously didn't want to play with me and just couldn't make a simple comment to my screened opt out posts and say so. I've even had a player report me to the mods because I had the nerve to PM them to see if they wanted to do a thread. Wish I was kidding.

We put it there for a reason. If people are so dickless that they don't use them that's more of a them problem then an us problem.

And furthermore speaking as a former mod - DO IT YOURSELF, tell the person, use the opt-out post to tell them not to tag you, you're very likely a grown ass adult, you don't need a mod to tell players who not to tag.

Only bring mods in if that person ignores your request after you made it, not before.

probs very petty but when the same people are on the AC warning lists every. single. fucking. month. AC runs for a full week, it's not that hard to get it in. Even worse when they beg for boomerangs when they realise they can't fill it and use the 'extra' time to make the mark.

I feel like there should be a penalty for this or something. If you're on the AC warning list two times a row then you skip the warning list next time and just get out.

You know, Luceti was one of my first games and once the AC was posted, tags after that didn't count for that AC unless you talked to the mods and had to post new activity. I thought it was the weirdest thing that that wasn't the norm, and I really wish more games did make it the norm.

YEEEEP

every month, the same handful of people. you are overextending yourself, stop it.

and the people who are always on because they just don't do AC until personally reminded even if they have AC when it goes up. you're not special stop making the mods / other players ping you, you fuckwit.

when a flake with the attention span of a goldfish is planning on apping super close/important cr and it would be very ooc for your character to ignore them.

i wish i could talk to the player about this but i just know i'll be painted as some big bad meanie if i try to. god forbid i expect my character's close cr to actually be reliable and not just drop threads whenever they lose interest (which they already do with the other characters they have in game).

Re: GAME PET PEEVES

As someone who recently had to deal with this.

- try and keep the mods in the loop, even if it is just by asking them to keep an eye on things. This'll make it easier to get them booted for non-activity / just barely scraping by.

- accept some inevitable OOCness. Don't completely ignore the other character, but also don't plan anything big with them. If you do threads, keep it light or don't agree to thread until you agree to a resolution so at least you aren't stuck when they inevitably drop the thread. Yeah, it sucks when your character should be more active with character X, but mostly, people understand when your hand is forced by another player's inactivity.

Of course, if they are a flake, you can keep your fingers crossed and hope they don't app at all. So many of them can't be bothered to go ahead with that.

I'm going through this exact same thing and I feel for you. It's so frustrating.

It's disappointing when you can see the favoritism and elitism blantantly rearing it's head. What an uncomfortable place this game is quickly becoming.

Every post being "a pretty faced framed by beautiful and elegant ringlets of hair" or something like that.

For fucks sake get your stupid boner for your pb out of the way. You used a model for your pb but that doesn't mean they're universally attractive or that anyone needs to thinks yours is a special pretty snowflake.

When you post to a TDM and can't get a thread going to save your life, even while tagging out.

(Anonymous) 2017-07-26 06:44 am (UTC)(link)
when you have a legitimate crit about game mechanics but there's another player who consistently posts long-winded incredibly rude comments criticizing the mod team over stuff that more often than not is ymmv or inconsequential

and this time they've mentioned your legitimate crit but in the rudest most entitled way possible, so now you feel like an asshole by association

bonus points i did bring it up to the mods publicly already and they've said they understand but it's just not high priority what with other stuff they're doing so while it bugs me too at least i'm polite enough to back off until they're actually ready to tackle that issue

This is how your character talks. This is not how your character would type.
