About the RP's pace, I prefer slow and steady RPs. When the RP goes in a fast pace, some people can't catch up, and later it can be a pain. But that doesn't mean that people should just sit and wait until the inactive one posts. What I mean is "quality over quantity". People tend to make lots of mistakes when rushing.

I agree with that, it's no fun to come online after only one day's absence and see several new pages with events that you got no chance to be part of.

But I don't like RPs where people won't bother to make a reply less often then once a week. They turn so eerie that people eventually can forget about them. And it dies. *goes to kick the players in Arcanum to life with a chainsaw or sumthin*

Okay, I think I'm going to go through with the Inheritance RP. It'll probably be kinda slow moving and I'll want good, detailed posts, short shoddy ones are the bane of my existence. It'll be set shortly after the last book. Look for it up in two weeks tops if you're interested, and if you know anyone who might be don't be afraid to poke em over to it. I want to see this one take off.

*nods head* What he said. I don't like extremely fast moving RPs, they turn out to be a mess. I like moderate speed RPs, with about 2-3 posts per day, which are decent.

I find that RPs tend to die if you let people hold up post order for several days at a time repeatedly. That being said, I like to have at least one post order cycle per day, so that everyone gets to post at least once per day.

Okay guys, I don't want to seem rude or arrogant or anything, but I just had to say this.

I'm really disappointed in this month's RPA. I'm not gonna take ANY names, nor am I attacking anybody, but some of the people/RPs being voted for are just... not deserving. That's my opinion, but really, before voting, just think who REALLY deserves that award. I know I may be overreacting a bit, specially since it's just some random awards on a forum xD, but yeah, it just... makes me kinda angry that some of the better RPers/RPs get ignored because they don't join the famous RPs/aren't really very active/don't interact much/whatever reason.

Really, the achievement system is looking better and better now that the new RPAs have come up. It's all just become a popularity contest now. That had been a major problem during the earlier RPAs, but fortunately it had not been such a major issue during the last RPAs, where people got what they deserved. I'm very sorry to say that I see the same issue returning this month.

Those are just my thoughts though. You're free to think whatever you want, or whoever you want to vote for... I just wanted to express my opinion.

...I am not sure whether to be amused or cynical over the fact that it has been stated right on the RPAs that you can't vote for the previous winner and yet Supervegeta is still winning best roleplayer, /again/ |D

For the love of-

Lol, guys, it's not allowed to vote for people who won the previous time. Give other people (some more deserving) a chance.

Oh, and rusty makes a pretty good point as well.

Although I do have to say, I'm quite happy that ShadowGuy789 nominated me for the best Veteran RP. I didn't even realize I was an RP.

EDIT: By the way I've been stalking some convos of some people (no names to be mentioned), and asking others to vote for you in the RPAs is just really low...

I agree myself. Everyone should get a chance at the awards. I'm kinda surprised ShadowGuy nominated me in the Most Entertaining Roleplayer. I appreciate that, & I hope I have fun here more. :D Go Pedro!

Honestly, I'm not one to aim for impressive titles on the interwebs. I just enjoy writing. I guess an award is cool, but whatever. I know some people take it very seriously though rofl. Another thing is that most people are biased rather than sincere when voting. I don't want to screw up like that.

By the way Vegeta, it's nice of you to tell people not to vote for you. I saw your emblems once and laughed at how ridiculously good you are.

Also -DeepImpact- has a great reply to the awards. I haven't been on here before so I don't know how the previous RPAs have gone, but eh... I can't judge much. I don't know anybody, really. I might not vote on these things. But for you guys, since I guess this is a bad month I hope the other ones will be better? Lol.

Okay, guys, I totally agree with DeepImpact.

THIS IS NOT A POPULARITY CONTEST. Do not vote for people simply because they are your friends. If you can't think of someone to actually vote for, then don't vote at all. And also, an explanation of "im votin for dem becoz dey are rly gud n fun!!!!!" is not acceptable. Those votes will not be counted.

Okay, for example, I'm definitely voting for PKMN Trainer Yellow as best GM. "shes rely organisd and helpful!!!" is not an explanation. "PKMN Trainer Yellow took over The Pokemon Trainer Academy and has been handling it like a pro. Despite the amount of new players and random members that join, she manages to keep the post quality up for everyone, keep alive all those 40 characters and still have a thread that's more popular than the roleplay discussing thread. Kudos for keeping it alive sp long and good luck to the future."

THAT is an explanation (though it should probably be more indepth), and I thought that up in a minute while lying in bed on my phone at 7:30am through half closed eyes. It is not that hard guys. I will not be counting votes without a proper reasoning and honestly, if you can't think about what to write in a paragraph, don't vote for them, because they don't deserve it.

And if anyone even remotely copies another members explanations, I will not be happy.

It really winds me up that some of you guys blatantly ignore what I say and put no effort into these things. It should be a fun thing to do, not a chore to try and make it fair.

Okay, back to sleep.

EDIT: one more thing. Stop with the "lol vote for me lol jks dont but realy do it" because it is kind of not funny and pompous and a lot of other words I'd like to use but can't on this site.

Woah, the Roleplay Awards seem to have gotten... a little bit out of hand. That's why I was never interested myself, anyways xD

Also, still plenty of space in my RP!:

This is probably the first time I've really thought about why I vote for people in the RPA... Usually I just look at the category and someone who fits the description comes to mind, but I never stop to think why XD

I tend not to get involved in the RPA's because it causes way to much drama. Certain people always win and it makes others upset.

OK WORLD... GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEADS! THIS IS A FORUM! YOU'RE GETTING WORKED UP OVER AN AWARDS SYSTEM THAT IS DONE FOR THE FUN OF ACHIEVEMENT!

Not trying to hurt any feelings or anything and this is in no way intended to offend anyone but you guys are taking this far to seriously.

I'm going to apoligize in advance to Skymin for whatever is going to result from this post.

I for sure hope to win something. In any case, I'm here to advertise my RP. I need a leader for Team Storm. My RP is Bara's Storm [PG-16]. Is anyone interested in being the Team leader of Team Storm?

It's not a war or a fight or anything, its a misunderstanding. I am upset because people don't read or understand what I've been saying.

All I'm trying to say is simply vote who you think is right. I'm trying to stop the high school drama about it all, not start it.

I agree with Skymin here guys, not because she is the mod or we are friends, but because what she is saying is true. If you don't have a reason to vote someone in a particular category, then there is no need to vote for them or in that category at all. Sure, its just a silly reward system on a forum, but it really brings the integrity of the Roleplay Corner down when it becomes a more of a popularity contest than on writing skill.

It really isn't that hard to take five or ten minutes out of your day to look at other Roleplays that you nor your friends are in and have a look. I'm usually working full time, or studying full time at university and working part time, not to mention commitments outside these, and I can still find the time in my busy life to have a look at other Roleplays and RPers.

There is no point in making a big deal about this, but guys, seriously, it doesn't take that much effort to write a couple of sentences why you think this particular Roleplay or Roleplayer deserves to be voted in that specific category.
