@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?

If you're talking about Pseudonym's idea I can tell you now that won't fix the problem. It'll only patch it up for a while, then sooner or later it's full blown back to where we started. Working backwards as I said before.

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.

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.

My point. I don't think if you need to Rp to get a point across, if you have any intellect at all.

I'm not talking about his solution. Your right it will solve nothing. He gets points for trying though.

On the other side of the street you have to realize that body language/actions are an important part in conversation. Since such actions are impossible via the internet then people use Rping to convey an action which represents some sort of an emotion.

Then how will you choose both?

Not really. There is no need to tell the hand motions your making over the internet. I don't really see the point of opening up Rping to the rest of the board.

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

Ok, next time you talk to someone do the following things...

Stare out into space.

Don't blink

Don't move any part of your body.

Don't show any emotions what so ever.

Never change the tone of your voice.

Did I, or I not say "over the interent"? You don't need to know if I just blinked while I was typing this sentence. What good will come of this again? Other than the obvious answer "We get to go crazy and have fun and slap each other with chickens!".

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.

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.

I LOVE IT

You should be allowed to RP when the admins deem you mature enough to use it sparingly.

THAT'S BULL!!!!!
