Okay, the acadamy idea didn't seem to work out too well, so, this is a new one.

Are you repetivly being warned about your RP skills? are you being rejected from RPs because of your typing skills? then I can help. If you seem to be having trouble RPing, then simply send a PM to me and I'll help you out as much as I can. However, this is an optional thing, you are not required to be tutored. However, I seriously advise it because i will be going around in threads first warning those that cannot RP properly, then closing the threads. Anybody that would like to enlist themselves to assist in RP tutoring can post here, and they can be PMed as well. Also, if you have any questions, you can also post here. thank you for your time.

Current tutors:

sorry to say this, but you've got to improve on spelling and puntuation first.

May I be of some service? I have studied a lot about RPing and write or type stories everyday. You could say I have a very far fetched dream of publishing a book. If you need an example or someone, could you tell me?

Flygon trainer

I'll have to ask you to provide an example as well, only rpers i've seen at work can go without giving an example.

Well, I'd actually like to help anyway I can. ^^; I have been RPing for quite some time now. I can provide a example as well if you need one.

May I be of some help? I would be able to help some improve, I hope, even if just slightly. I can supply an example, too, if needed.

Ok then, here's an example from my own storyline:

I gazed upon the earth around me. The grass was green and the birds sang their song of good will and happiness. I wanted this great moment to last forever within my heart and soul. But I knew it could not.

The dreaded moment was sure to come. The day I would have move to Johto. I had always lived in the peaceful land of Kanto all my life. Not once had I ever quit on my dream of staying here forever. But that would never happen.

Ever since I had become a trainer, beaten a few gym leaders with my loyal Pokemon and come home, my parents fought. They always had arguements. I had never known what these arguements were about. I was the only child on my home. The only companions that I had were Charizard and Wigglytuff.

I remember it like it was yesterday. That happy feeling. The feeling I had when I left on my journey to Professor Oak's Lab to seek out my first Pokemon. I knocked on the door with a big smile on my face. It looked so silly to the Professor, that he laughed and showed me inside.

He showed me his whole lab and I got to meet many friendly lab assistants. I even met my new rival Martin. Martin was like the new kid in town. He never once was nice to me or ever sayed hi to me. He was the most ignorant and mean kid I had ever met.

Martin frowned at me and pushed me a little on his way to the computer the professor used when looking up on a Pokemon. I walked through many doors until I came to a smal room. In the center of this odd room were three shiny red Pokeballs.

I didn't care what the Professor said and looked at one. I picked it up eagerly and opened it up. A small orange lizard Pokemon greeted me. It snuggled close to me, and before I knew it I had a new partner.

Well, that's my example. I hope you like it. ^_^

Well everyone is enlisting to help and I'll be honest, I'm not very good at it and I'll admit it. I need some tutoring. Thank you.

If you need help Randall, PM any of us. I'm sure we'll be able to help your RPing skills become as great as anyone great writer in no time at all! It took me only 5 lessons to get as good as I am now, they're easy and fun. ^_~

You have to ask Flygon_trainer and give an example of your RPing skills. Yay! More helpers! It's like having lil elves helping you, except without the elf-iness.

okay an example.this will be based off one of the roleplays I'm in.

Deoxys was going to erase Ari off the face of the virtual world and the real world when I ran in front of the blast.It seemed that Ari had been hurt, gone forever along with me.However when the smoke and dust cleared away there I was standing with my arms crossed, burns all up and along them, and Ari behind me unharmed.
"Hey guys I need some help," I said stumbling over to them.My leg broken from my tumble down the stairs and the added wait of the limp Ari made it harder than ever to make it the fifteen feet to my friends.

Was that good enough?I think I mis-spelled virtual.but other than that it looks pretty good to me.

I've been out of the RP world for awhile, but I'm ready to dive back in ^^ I'd love to help, and I haven't forgotten how to RP. >>

I just use " blah " for talking * blahblahblah * for actions ((for stuff not in the RP )) and No marks for narrations. Since no one recognizes me here anymore...I'll *cough* give you all a sample. And, Its from Fire Emblem, not Pokemon, so...Don't expect Eliwood to be saying, "Go! Pikachu!" Or anything like that.

Hector and Eliwood slowly progressed up the hill, which was alive with swaying grass. It pulled on Eli's horse, and tugged at Hectors armour, but they trudged on, heedless. Lyn was patiently waiting for them at the top. She was quick and nimble, leaving the boys in her dust. The sun shone down brilliantly, heating the earth and making the travelers sweat.

"Come on you two! You were just beat by a girl!" Lyn teased with a slight smile

"Urgh. Try lugging an axe on your back instead of that slim sword." Hector grunted in rebuttle.

"I packed for the trip. Can't say everyone was smart enough to do that." With that, Lyn started down the other side, which led into a beautiful flowering meadow.

I know that was more like a fanfic, but, I had to be all the characters. >> And the story xD

I'd like to help out, anything to get this place up to my ideas of snuff. PM me, and I'll help.

Gohan: If this was my thread, I'd say no. But it's not, I'll leave that to FT.

I will help to teach people, just private message me, my skills strech for over 6 years, originating at the old chat site I was at. I might not reply fast, but I will.


-He started to fly out of the room, and suddenly stopped, looking at people in here, thinking," Someday I can help teach the art of roleplay to all." And then flew out.

So basically, you're saying that you'll be warning and closing the RPs that you don't like? That sems to be a bit biased, especially since you're the only one who makes that decision.

What if there are several people that are halfway through an RP that's been going on for a few months and you close it because you don't like the way it's being run? How would you feel if it happened to one of your RPs? And then you lost all of that time you put into it.

I'm just saying this because if that happened to one of my RPs after putting that much time into it and it suddenly closes because the moderator doesn't like it, I'd likely report them. And I'd put this and quote the rules as the reason.

No, we warn and close the RPs that dont follow the rules. We couldn't like, or dislike an RP unless we were in it. It doesnt matter how much time you put into it, if the RP has gotten to a point where the posts are basically spamish, and the RPers refuse to listen, and obey the rules, it will be closed.

Thanks for clearing that up. I asked because Flygon Trainer is threatening to close Pokemon Realms II (263 posts, 1260 views) because she thinks we're not RPing well enough for her. And we've been at it for awhile now. I'd hate to start over after putting this much time into it.

So basically as long as we obey the rules and don't spam, it can't rightly be closed. Let me just make a record of this post... There.

Thanks.

And a moderator said this, people.

I would like to help, as I don't want role playing newbies to look the way I did when I was new at role-playing. It was tough to learn from what you assume was right.
