Ever since I joined, I have asked for more RP rights.

Now, the time has come.

Well, for one thing, I see where you guys are comming from. If we RP wildly, topics will be destroyed/ignored, and no serious arguement/conversations, can be had.

Still, you must look at the other side.

We have an RP section, but it is only for serious and epic fights. We can't RP outside of it. We can actually get in trouble for simple mistakes.

This, I find unfair and troubling. For one, it limits our speech, binding us to stating things in a boring way. If we RP, we'd have more interesting and fun conversations. It'll allow points to be delivered better and clearer.

RP with some limitations
No chickens...

You can have random Rping conversations in the Rp section. How is it boring?

PERFECTO! I congratulate Jailer for finding such a perfect solution! No it's NOT sarcasm. That wasn't sarcasm either.

I support the use of pictures such as Facepalm and Fail and whatnot.


You can RP facepalm, but I just hate the nonsensical RP'ing like *Venom and my other son come over* "Venom and my other son, attack that guy!"
Reply: No, they aren't real. I am. I win.

But there's no RP-ing there. The thread I'm talking about relates to things that people want to talk about, while RP-ing. If it gets out of hand, it's just one thread that's ruined.

I think its based off of a need to express yourself on a forum, Heres an example:

John is talking to mindy,
(John) Well I think your hilarious and I think most of the time what your doing is awesome, Congratulations you deserve a trophy!

And here it is with RPing

(John) *Gives mindy an Awesome Trophy* Good job! biggrin.gif

It just makes the conversation quicker and ends the topic of that thing much quicker, if it would strain along too much the mods should just pm or ban right away, Its not a question of should we allow it or not, its a question of how long are you willing to let it go before it gets annoying and detrimental to the forums growth and fun levels.
