i'm sure this applies to games, too, but i've been noticing this disproportionally on those looking for particular character or psl planning memes, so it goes here:

person 1: "here's the character or characters i want to play with."
person 2: "but what about this one character you didn't ask for and has nothing to do with anything you asked for???!!1"

What I especially hate are those idiots who go great character choice! Love the rep! I used to play from it! No one cares and you don't know the player or how they play, they could be shit. It's not a compliment.

da, but what i hate about that is that i don't give a shit if you used to play from the canon. how about replying to me if you still currently play from the canon since 90% of the time, people who post to those memes (myself included) are looking for castmates?

there's about ten or eleven 'regulars' who seem to just like dumping their muses in to show they have them. i have no idea what they're looking for, but they never tag out or tag back, so it's either just to get buttpats over how cool their chars are, or they're only wanting to play with specific people.

or worse, they're the ones that 'want' to play, but they consistently only keep a thread going for three or four replies before they're too busy posting in a new meme.

here's a hot tip, how about you don't make any new top levels until you tag people back? got all that free time you think you can use to rp? tag people back, don't make top levels until you're free.

i really don't understand these people, especially the ones who will pm others and apologize or leave cute little notes about being busy, school, work, vacation, illness, so on. you either want to tag people or you don't. don't tag back twice to look good because you don't look good and people do notice, even if you're talking somewhere private. i post on memes every other week or if something i really want pops up but i still notice these people and make note to never tag them as well as the people who just don't say anything at all. you're not interested? communicate that. don't have time? tell them and stop posting in every meme.

i know this has gone on forever in dwrp including people who over-extend their characters or games but i don't understand it. you're not having fun, i'm not having fun, so what is the point of doing this?

i always give a thread a chance and the only stinkers i've received were people you know are stinkers to begin with and won't "mesh well" or are just seeking different things. i've been on them really infrequently lately but i don't think i play many desirable characters. i don't really tag out for this reason since the last several people i tagged out to either gave me the go ahead when asked and pretended to be excited about it, never replied, or gave me a few replies and dropped before we even got to really do anything.

it sucks because i was someone that tagged out a lot and i think that's really what's happening now. people who don't tag back are the reason people don't tag out but i'd honestly be happier with people being more specific about what they're looking for in their top level even if it's cast-mates only, characters of a certain age only, cross-canon only, or dynamics or even options. people need to be more honest about what they don't want, too, because they aren't going to keep getting tagged at a certain point even if they are playing someone desirable.

I think its worse on the gif memes. Everyone and their mom top levels to see who will give them pictures but they never tag back.

picture prompt memes seem incredibly pointless

at best you get one person posting a picture, and maybe someone tags back and that's it

rpers are too lazy and even the act of finding and posting a pic is too much so why do those memes still get posted? its nothing but top levels for 14 pages

Can we get more gen memes and fewer niche fetish smut memes please?

Re: MEME PET PEEVES

post whatever you want, anon. or ask meme posters to post something for you. if you want more shit, you need to do it yourself.

Plus there's the issue of that most of the time when someone does post a gen meme (I've written a few and post them occasionally) no one actually tags on it.

Honestly the niche fetish memes are irritating as hell because they only get 2-3 bites, can could be easily folded into other kinks.

How many fucking variations of the Protector/Protectee type meme do we need?

Top levels with NSFW icons don't bother me in smut memes, but can we please not do it in broader shipping memes?

the stupid thing about that is that's the only nsfw icon that account has. i wonder if they picked it or hit random and went with it.

if you only want guy characters to tag you, put it in the subject line! i don't know why that's so hard for some people to understand?

and don't put "all ships are good ships" in everything you post if you're going to actively ignore everyone but two characters.

There are a baffling number of people that think that including any preferences means they're obligated to play with anyone that meets those requirements, or else they'll get the dreaded namedrop on wankgate. Meanwhile, leaving their prefs blank means they can pick and choose with impunity. No, it makes no sense to me either.

inb4 "maybe they don't want to play with YOUR girl???"
