When you want to start CR with a particular character, but all their prompts are shit. I've been looking at this person's toplevels for three mingle logs now and every single time it's either "[character] is sitting alone doing nothing interesting at all, come bother them!" or "[character] is hanging around areas x y and z, but instead of setting up any prompts I'll just vaguely list what they might be doing and let you do all the work!" How the fuck is anyone who isn't already CR supposed to respond to that?

those cr meme replies that are always vague and indirect, like emote/icon only or "WE SHOULD... DO THINGS..." because they want you to read their minds and suggest the "correct" prompt. bitch, YOU came to ME. this isn't 20 questions. use your words like a big girl or fuck off.

that games have devolved into samey garbage because new premises just don't take off like they did. everyone wants kink friendly, or space, or murder, or torture porn disguised as plot.

there's no polite/non-wanky way to say "i don't want to plan anything with you because you constantly overload yourself with threads and take forever to respond to anything," is there?

players who are too lazy to seek their own CR but instead rely on plots to build the CR for them/present it to them on a platter

why are you even in this hobby?

people who don't understand that my character isn't going to treat everyone exactly the same and different characters will garner different reactions. "why did billy joe get mad about little suzie finding out his secret? jimmy found out too and billy joe didn't get mad about that!" because jimmy is his close friend and he just met little suzie yesterday.

when you realize most of the interesting and unique characters in your game have dropped, and you find yourself staring down a log full of reactionless anime pretty boys whose idea of a fun thread is politely discussing the weather with a blank expression.

like holy hell i've seen harem protags with more life than some of these characters. why are these the ones flocking to the game?

Castmate, the more you flake out on our attempts to include you in order to shake and cry about how unwelcome you feel, the less we want you around. I'm starting to think you're only in rp to stroke your various social complexes to completion.

if you app into a game and it isnt clicking like you hoped (for whatever ic or ooc reasons) how long do you try to hold out before dropping?

i made myself put in the effort for 2 months once and wound up finding my feet to stay for 2 years. im having trouble clicking with a game again and idk what ill do about it yet. it might be easier to cut th elosses

lmao at people (unsuring) over a shift in the game from being predominantly their canon's medium to predominantly another medium

only to get it pointed out that no, the mediums are basically exactly even

when you spend months setting up an intricate plot with multiple endings, twists and clues, and working to ensure everyone who wants to participate has their own important role in ensuring everything goes off right

and then everyone fucking drops the threads before anything even happens so you have to handwave everything.

fuck this game man i'm out.

flakes who plurk excitedly about plots and set up plans but handwave their threads every. fucking. time.

double points when those same flakes plurk about plots or events and go into extreme detail why they're avoiding it or how it's ooc for their character to be interested or do certain things

don't worry buddy your whole timeline knew you wouldn't be tagging in the first place
that would require you to be active

i just want an answer where are characters are up to and what their CR is like. since between tags i end up waiting weeks, literal not just an exaggeration. if you don't want them to go anywhere please say or answer my question at least.

i refuse to spam someone with messages because that's just annoying for the both of us. i don't think asking for an answer to a question is that unreasonable.
