Well the whole No Rping in Non-RP sections has been a topic of controversy ever since it's been implemented. I'd like to hear what you have to say about this rule. Should it stay, or should it go, and why? Remember if your going to say something, say it in a civilized manner. Only intellectual reasoning is allowed. Shouting matches will be deleted.

I think RPing should be allowed due to the fun factor, but also for other reasons. One reason is that it helps get a point across. For example, {slaps X for being stupid} is more effective than I wish i could slap X for being so stupid.

I thought we were to try to get away from the stupidity? I don't think we should be going backwards in our progress. Why should we need to Rp in every post we make when there is a whole section for it! I say we keep the rule we have going, and make it stricter.

I say you can only RP yourself and it has to be surrounded by asterisks.

Also RP's should only be kinda realistic and less than 10 words.

*female dog-slaps ND4* WTF, I don't care what Jason has to say. If he wants to say something, get him a f****g account.

Perfect Example.

No RPing in Non RP sections, (I'll call it NRP for short).


When this site first started people could do pretty much whatever they wanted, and every topic would go for pages with little point or intention. After awhile things got boring and we tried to make the site a bit more serious, without loosing the fun factor. One of the things that was taken note of was the immaturity, and irresponsibility in RPing in non RP sections. Even the most serious of topics would end with:

*hits you with a chicken.

*DODGES THE CHICKEN

*NU-HUH YOU CAN"T DODGE THE CHICKEN!!!


...You get the point, so because of this continued idiocy the NRP rule was implemented. At first it seemed to put everyone at ease, and on a path to a more mature, yet still fun website. However in retrospect I realize that this rule may have placed too strong of a binding on this site. Simpily put on one hand I want this site to be one of intellect, and maturity, but at the same time I want it to be relaxing, fun, and enjoyable.

Hmm, a difficult problem. I say P-Dog{cause I can't spell his name} had a good idea.

You have to pick one then. We're not gonna get intellectual debates and stuff with Rping allowed. Mature members wouldn't be drawn to a site with such stupidity. I don't see how letting the place run free with Rping gonna make this place more enjoyable. There is a whole section for it!

From now on, if I don't give a reason why, assume it's because I said so.

But you see, Darkender, the RPG board does not allow for regular conversation, as it's almost always some epic fight. RPing is a way to get a point across, like {Facepalm} shows how you are dissapointed with yourself or dissapointment in another.

@Darkender: Perhaps things should be more relaxed though. This a place to hangout, not a military school.

Note: I don't neccesarily agree or disagree with you. I just want to get the entire view, if you know what I mean.

Also, you say that I have to choose one or the other? Not true. Who said we couldn't have a limited policy on Rping outside of Non-RP sections, rather than total abolishment?

I'm saying it makes it easier, instead of saying "How couldn't I've/you seen that!"

There are ways to convey your thoughts other than RPing. That's one of my problems with RPing in Non-RP zones, it causes people to loose all amounts of intellect, and all hopes of serious disscussion are thrown out the window.
