People should stop voting for me. I wanna give others a chance too. There are far more deserving people in categories if you just take a quick peak around.

Yes, it's obvious that I am far more deserving.

(cough lie cough)

SV, you should feel honoured, man! It means that you're well known and that people think you are almighty and we should bow down to your awesomenes...Yeah, maybe not.

And people are probably going to vote about people they know rather than people they just randomly see in another RP that they're just passing along through. You are fairly well known and are a good RP so, 1 + 1 = you getting votes! xD

I gotta agree with SV and this one, tho. PEOPLE SHOULD STOP VOTING FOR HIM!!! XD

I thought the RPAs wasn't a popularity contest? If you're gonna vote for one person you know well over and over, it IS a popularity contest. :/

OMG, you're alive!
Anyways . . . you could always vote for me in every category, lol. ;3 Do it, you know you want to, :P

@Wymsical - In the end it's kind of hard to avoid the popularity part. If the person is popular, you're more likely to have seen them around and see what kind of a RPer they are, whereas if they aren't as popular, you might be unfamiliar with their work so you're not going to vote for them.
Either way, I don't get many votes, lol. I need to try harder and prioritize better, lol. :P

Anyways, I think Plague could use some more RPers . . . the more the merrier, and a better chance you have of surviving a zombie apocalypse.

Well then, why do they keep saying it ISN'T?! X3 It is half a popularity contest then. A good way to avoid the popularity crap is to think about your votes instead of randomly casting them on people you know :/ Look around RPs and try to find someone ELSE worthy of your vote. If you keep voting for the same person over and over vegeta will choke on emblems nobody else will get a chance. :/

Zombie Apocalypse? Lame. Zombies are so yesterday. xD

I'm actually glad and sad that no one is voting for me. Glad because I've already won an award (a long time ago), so I don't really need another, but sad because it seems that none of the newbies really know me. xD

Just a heads up guys, Atlantis Arising is still open to join if you are interested, the storyline is fluid enough so that others can join without disrupting much.

Just FYI for those looking to waste more... I mean RP more First Contact needs two more Pokemon players. Just thought I would spa... I mean advertise here.

Idea of the RP is future humans (who have almost all been wiped) crash land on a planet inhabited by Pokemon, who are much more intelligent than your normal Pokemon who get caught in balls. Basically the start of the RP will be the interaction of the two different races...

Hey guys, just a little heads up, I have made a facebook group: http://www.facebook.com/groups/189828071106049/ called The Roleplay Lounge, for those of you that have facebook, this group would be like a hub, so you can chat among yourselves, find people who roleplay near you and generally hang out away from PC.

Well, I tried my best not to make this RPA into a popularity contest. I have never RPed with Ichiro (hope I do though) yet I still voted for him her. :P To be honest, yeah, people STOP VOTING FOR VEGETA LOL

Idk, I feel there are a LOT of underrated RPers around. For example, anybody remember Xilfer123? He was a really good RPer but unfortunately no one voted for him (except Vegeta). Even Stingray, his RPs are original, his posts are good, but hardly anyone votes for him. In the end, it's about who is the most well known RPer around the Corner. lol

But at the same time, you're well known because you're active. Even if you have friends and all, if you just have a lotta friends and post once in a RP people won't vote for you. Activity around the Corner makes you well known, and that does contribute to the fact that you're a good RPer (to be a good RPer, you need to be active as well, which was noted a few pages back) but it's just not enough to make you win that prize and "Be the best".

@All you little rats Everyone: Hey! Did anyone just see what DeepImpact wrote!? That was heartbreaking... xD

I totally agree, people. And listen to me when I say this or else but we need to turn this from a popularity contest (which gets lame eventually because the same people just win over and over) And turn it into a real RPing X-Factor a real talent contest.

Edit: U were Ninja'd

I disagree. I am the moderator of this board and essentially the most active and should be the most well known here. Despite this, I'm not getting a outrageous amount of votes (I'm not complaining, I honestly don't care. I'd rather earn my vote as apposed to getting it just because I'm mod). It's a direct tie in to friendship, niceness, activity, actual skill and how many pies your fingers are stuck in. Supervegeta was well known as president for the PQ by those who knew what it was and was revered as a "great leader" or something. So he was well known and had the skill to back it up.

I voted for him out of pure honesty, but if you don't want my vote, I'm happy to take it somewhere else.

OK, guys, it's just the RPA, let's not take it TOO seriously. I was kinda saying it in a joking matter. But seriously, we should have a bit more people vote. Come on everyone! Go to the RPAs and cast a vote!

@Skymin Nah, if you really believe I deserve it, go vote for me, (I'm touched, btw. :D) it should be your opinion, after all.

LOL, I wasn't taking it that seriously And anyway, like you said, and I quote, "Don't pay it too much attention, I found out it's really just a popularity contest." lolol

But yeah, we should get more people to vote. Most of the people who have actually posted on it have TBC marked on everything. WTF Does that even stand for? The Bird Crap?? lolol jk

No, if it was The Bird Crap, the crap would be aimed at you and it wouldn't be in our posts, it'd be on you. Lol . . .

Oh, I had an idea . . . uh, kinda? Since I don't think that Blue Dragon RP I was thinking of making would be very popular . . . how does a Spectrobes RP or something sound? Anybody interested, at all?

That is a very valid point, but I don't read enough RP's to know who to vote for, that's why I don't. I feel like I shouldn't vote if I really don't see a little bit of how everybody RP's. But, while it being a popularity contest is true in a sense, it doesn't really matter. Because someone's popularity should generally say that there is a reason why they're popular... Btw. Are you new here, what is a SKYMIN?

I probably wouldn't join because my time is extremely limited, and I can barely keep active in one RP. But Spectrobes is plenty flexible and could be turned into an RP pretty easily. As long as it had a plot that had direction, it would probably be able to work out well.
