Ta whom it may concern:

Though I have noticed dis fo quite some time already, only now has it come ta mah attention that thare has been a severe dearth n tha beount of new roleplays created n tha Othar Roleplay foum. Only two pages' worth of threads as of right now, and quite a few of those threads have a disturbngly low beount of posts.

N all seriousness, what tha hell happened? Have we already run out of ideas? Is you already startng ta become dissatisfied wit RPng? If so, than is thare anythng we do ta reverse dis trend? Is we truly out of ideas? What can be done ta attract yo nterest once more?

Wit those questions, I shall leave you ta yo discussion of dis rathar pressng issue. Thank you fo yo time, should you read dis message.

Signed,

A concerned roleplayer

I've noticed dis tao. *coughevangelionrpgitanmsncough*

One thng I thnk is happenng is maybe tha plots is tao grand fo some of tha lower RPers or fo those who can't exactly follow tha plot. Maybe just tha idea is ben overused DNA changng and becomng cliche. I mahself know that I git easily bored wit slowly movng plots and n time fogit bout tham. I also fogit plots that never become started. I'm sure othars can relate; after you spend time waitng and waitng fo tha RP ta start...and it never does or goes slowly. Sometimes you just lose tha creative flow of thngs.

I also fnd very restrictive roleplays not good fo tha Rpers wantng ta RP. 'Follow tha leader' RP's so you can contnue tha plot is very annoyng. I suggest maybe some more open Rps that could have more plot freedom ta it, that would be funky ass. I also thnk that maybe some good RP creatars just don't want ta post thair RP coz thay thnk it's not good enough. Just coz a past RP was beiss doesn't mean you're not good at makng tham. Well that's all. I'd like ta RP more tao :\

Well, I did post an RP, not n tha othar section, but it didn't pass tha moderation test. I'm only so non-lazy ta type a plot once. =_= That's why you don't see dawgy of mah brand. I mean, if anyone wants ta -try- ta revive any of mah old RP's, feel free, but not dawgy of tham git past tha filter. But I agree, that I fogit bout slow movng RP's, or RP's wit thugz that ncessantly bothar mah character, or me n general.

And, as fo yo first question after yo good cuss, Yeah. I never had any idea's n tha first place, but sometimes had fun makng mah own idea. I'm not good at typng out plots, whethar I've gots an idea or not. It usually ends up n a whole bunch of nonsense. =_=

bout 23 Actual RP's on tha pages. Don't fogit tha stickies and tha moved thread.

What happened ta that huge plot we were discussng n tha 'ultimate RP' thread? O.O Tha whole thng n general died?

Thare's always a drought dis time of year, and you just need ta deal wit it. It has a lot ta do wit all of tha thngs takng place off of PC durng dis time of year I thnk. Ncreased schoolwork, tha fact that you can go outside and do stuff, reasons like that. It'll generally pick up agan n a month or so.

Chibi, at least 90% of tha RPs n dis foum is accepted, it's pretty ris when one isn't. Oo

Yeah, n mah almost two years here, it seems ta be tha way thngs go. Actually, n mah recollection we tend ta git some very good ones tawards tha end of summer. Right now, it's just funky ass whethar and schoolwork, I mean, I'm on less coz tha sprng/summer jbe season is startng up, I need ta git back n shape and practice some stuff, so naturally, mah RP time suffers.

Yup, it's fnals time, and thugz is dong that nstead of RPng. As much as mah life usually revolves around RPs, I have ta admit that mah grades can't affod ta suffer. Tha drought will become all funky ass and wet agan once school's out.
