Does it really count as an 'open log' if the only people who can reply to it are the people you already have cr with who have a specific invitation to reply to it? The same people that you always tailor all of your open logs to?

Just call it closed and stop pretending.

I think the definition for that is semi-open or closed-to (insert players here). correct me if I'm wrong. but no, that's not an open log.

Castmates that ignore you because you won't hop on their character's dick.

corollary: castmates that ignore you because they're too busy hopping on some other character's dick. bonus points if the dick is attached to a character they shouldn't even remotely enjoy spending time with in the first place.

"this game sounds really cool but i'm going to see how active it is first!"

PEOPLE LIKE YOU ARE WHY COOL SOUNDING GAMES FAIL. i'm not talking about if you don't have time to app when a new game opens, that happens, but if you want to app to a new game fucking app so it's active.

when an RPer you're not even that close friends with keeps hitting you up JUST to gush about theirs. nothing else, just to talk at you about their game. thinking people will be interested in characters they have zero investment in, and plots they have little to no understanding of the context or buildup behind, is the RP equivalent of assuming your casual work-acquaintance cares about your highschool reunion party or your night-in doing taxes.

Can't wait to see what your open posts two days before AC's due are this month. Have you even responded to that single comment someone threw you last month?

Realizing your new castmate apparently just... doesn't respond to tag ins after the post has been up for a day or so. Oh well, I guess our characters that should really have fairly close CR will just never interact.

When someone claims to be excited to do something with you, you set up the thing for them, you link them to the thing, they acknowledge that they got the link to the thing... and then they never reply to it. And it isn't a matter of not having time, because they have tagged other people and made a new top level and also a network entry all since.

Look, bruv, if you didn't want to do the thing with me, you could have just fucking said so.

is it just me, or are joint posts just really hard to read? i mean when someone makes a network post where two or more people are speaking in the same entry, usually using different colored text. i understand why people do them, but i just find them incredibly obnoxious and cumbersome.

am i the only one noticing a trend of people dropping characters and not fucking posting about it to the ooc comm?

i'm not even talking about people dropping after a short amount of time or idling out but people who've been in a game for the better part of a year posting to the drop post and not mentioning it anywhere else for the whole of the game to see? like maybe they posted on plurk idk i don't follow everyone in the game and i doubt anyone else does either.

when did we lose what should be a basic courtesy to the game and your cr?

I went from really popular character in a small game to obscure character in a big game, and I knew this would happen, but I'm still sad about getting a lot less tags. Time to make an active tagging out habit, but I hope I can get people interested so my top-levels aren't wasted.

two comments on a plotting meme

player a wants to "do all the things!", but doesn't respond when i ask what their character is up to or if they have any ideas in the works. player b comes with concrete ideas for CR. we plot and start a log.

a few days later a mutual friend tells me that player a thinks I'm insular and cliquey and lmao lmao they replied to my plotting comment first but player b was the only one i started a log with???? i must not want CR with them they're going to stop trying lmao (deadcat)

Play a character, get 0 canon cr despite starting threads, trying to plot, talking through things on plurk, drop the character out of frustration and lack of direction, and then watch someone else app the same character and get loads of attentions and threads.

Thanks for confirming that it's me, cheers, assholes

That feeling when you app into a game as an lcw and people start apping castmates, who then don't want to bother with cross-canon CR.

Guys it's great that you want to play with only me but it's kind of a drag that you're not doing the legwork to get your characters their own CR. It's okay (and entirely IC) for your characters to have friends who aren't also friends with my character. I'm not keeping you on a baby leash. Go play.

games that don't publically share the reasons for rejected apps. I can appreciate that mods probably do this to help rejected players save-face, but it doesn't help us prospective players who look to rejected apps as examples of what to avoid when writing our own. when an app that, to me, looks perfectly passable gets rejected for a publicly-undisclosed reason, it makes me wonder where the lines are drawn.
