actually i was there when the two subforums merged. At first, there's a forum called RolePlay Lounge, and that's where you put the OOCs. There were two sub-forums, one called Pokemon Roleplay, the other one called Other Roleplay or some sort. It merged uh...in like March 2011. It was really recent.

This was before then :3 Pokemon Roleplay was a section on its own with an OOC section and Other Roleplay was a section on its own with an OOC section. They were both in different areas on the forum. But I totally forgot that it was like you said when the first merge occurred :P

Yes, the merge was pretty recent. And, of course, right after the merge, a bunch of Other RPs were made.
My last RP, Worlds Collide, was made like two days before the merge. I remember because Red (Yus, this was also after Michaela's modship) stuck it in "Other RPs".

On another topic, my very first RP on this site (my second ever) was The Argent Tournament by Grifspark and Ray Maverick. Then Ray went AWOL, and Grif had computer issues... and it died :| Luckily, Ray came back :) Grif visited the website recently, but he's not officially back :(

So the Age of Silence was most likely '10 at least, but definitely before that for Other Roleplay. I guess it would make sense, seeing how this a Pokemon forum, after all, and there are other sites dedicated to all sorts of Roleplay (like LiveJournal, though the Roleplaying there is far different from forum Roleplaying).
I so remember that. Goodness, it doesn't seem that it had been that long. I remember checking out the Other Roleplays and there were maybe four tops, but when I would check the Pokemon Roleplays, it had about three pages worth of RPs.

Team Devastation is experimenting on the pokemon and trainers they capture as they try to create "the perfect being" with which they will try to rule the world.

I'd have an amount of time set for the pokemon to defeat Team Devastation before they create their "perfect being". RPers would be able to join either as a pokemon or as a member of Team Devastation.

What do you think? Is it good? Does it still need some work? Would you join?

Yeah, I remember the Other Roleplay section, only because TWEWY/Pokémon roleplay was put in there. It died after a few posts ;~;

But yeah, the Other Roleplay usually had 3 or 4 active at a time, compared to the main Pokémon section, which had at LEAST 15. You know... this is the only place I've PROPERLY roleplayed. I used to go on roleplay forums but they were all so confusing!

I have the honor of never being declined from a roleplay though! *puffs chest out*

I don't think it's hard not to get declined... : U As long as your writing is up to par with what's correct and you add enough description and character depth, you should be fine.

Oh man, the RP section merge... Used to be that the Other Roleplay section would see little to no activity, which might be what prompted the merge. Now people actually LOOK at the non-Pokemon RPs, which is a refreshing change of pace.

I might be biased, but I still think the RP corner was busier and more vibrant back in 2008 when I first joined than it is now. That's not to say that the RP corner hasn't improved recently, it's certainly in a better state than it was at the end of 2009/most of last year. I think this 'Age of Silence' pretty much covers that period.

From what I remember of the RP corner a few years back, it was pretty much a flavour of the month type system. You'd get periods where 5 or 6 Mystery Dungeon RP's would crop up at the same time, followed by a series of adventure RP's. Oh, and not to forget the monthly attempt by someone to set up a pokemon school/academy RP which would invariably die before sign up were even filled

Try writing an SU where the purpose is to NOT write at least two paragraphs for appearance, personality, history, etc. I did that and got rejected from one from of Mika's RPs ;; That was the only time though. Other than that, the worst that's happened to me was a "Pending" status. Unless you count LiveJournal Roleplays. Aw man was I rejected in quite a few of those. But I had also signed up canon characters, not OCs.

THE POKEMON SCHOOLS! I was in maybe one RP back then but those were awful, but only because they were all the same. But it seems like the "Silent" periods have the most detailed and best written RP's. Take the original "Path Between Light and Darkness" or "Uprising" those were really well written. But this was also back when Alter Ego was mod. She was alot less active than RHCP though. At least towards the end of her reign.

AE V.S. RHCP!!!!

NOOOOOOOOOOOO! don't get any ideas. PMD started one-liners, kinda, because they required teams which generated short back and forth posts.

Rika is a lot nicer and more friendly than Alter, if you ask me ^_^ /though I also got to know Rika better thanks to the late PokeSupe fanclub and Other Trivia

I think a PMD RP can work out really well if one person plays a whole team. But Idk; I think I only tried to join one once but it died before it even started XD;

Also, I'm thinking of making an RP in the near future, but Idk what I want exactly. It'll be Pokemon since I know Pokemon best, but I dunno.

Ah, Path to Light and Darkness, I believe, was the only RP that I was ever declined for ;_;
The most successful RP I've ever been in... Well, I know ONE of them was on another website... 50 pages in maybe a month. On this website? I'm not sure

The only mods I knew were Michaela and Red... I never saw Alter Ego, but I did join during their reign.

And, fortworth, there's a nostalgia fest going on, try again later X3

Agreed!

That sounds like me, I never follow through though.

Alter Ego scared me for some reason X___X

I was frequently rejected from any RPs Alter Ego, Loki and I think Mika (I am not sure about that one) were in. Killed my inspiration to join any RPs for some time. That was back when Other Roleplay existed...so I would say around the Age of Silence. I was a noob so maybe thats why they rejected me XP

I somehow managed to get into one of Mika's RPs when I was a n00by RPer. But then I screwed a heck a lot of stuff up and all the other members got mad at me. When she declined me in her next RP I felt incompetent. ...Yeah, I don't have much self confidence ^^;

I'm kind of picky about who I accept in to my role-plays. I like long well thought out posts and I decline someone if they can't provide a decent sign-up. :/ I'm not afraid to kick people out either, and I started my role-playing days back when Loki was still a mod.

I've never actually been a RP master before, but I agree with the above. I'm picky when I can be. Very picky.

On a completely random note. I love Yuukihimes's signature. Legit.
