Basically, when we check the forums (Roleplay Corner and Roleplay Lounge) and there are newly submitted threads by you, we will make a new post here and state whether or not your thread was accepted.


If they are denied, we may post a hint/tip on what was wrong. If your RP was denied, it's most often because of one or several of the following reasons:

- No rating? All RPs must have a rating. Re. Mem. Ber.

- Too short plot? Your background story/plot/setting should be 5-6 full lines or preferably more. Shorter than that and you can't really get much info into it.

- Does your background actually act as background info? Does it tell your roleplayers where the roleplay takes place, what the goal or purpose of the RP is, why their character might potentially be involved...? Double-check!


This means
, no more asking the mods via VM/PM to check your thread; if your thread doesn't show up for a while, you can check this thread to see if it was denied and maybe what the reason is. If you want a more detailed reason, then you can PM us about it.

If your RP is denied, you may fix what I've pointed out here (or in a PM if you asked for one) and then post it again and hope to be accepted the second time :3


Let's keep the PokéCommunity Roleplay Corner a place of quality, guys~

Both of alpagamer323's duplicate RPs have been denied. Please read the rules before posting. Also, you have to improve your grammar and start using a spell-check (type up the post in Word or something) if you want to host an RP.

Blaziken 15's RP is approved. The plot is very short, but I hope you have planned enough to make it roll.

's RP thread will be accepted if you VM me with a promise to add a rating as soon as the thread is up >.<
killet513's RP thread is now accepted.

Totodile12345's RP thread is denied for now. You have to describe the setting, now it's just a background story and nothing about where you'll be playing.

Cookiez's RP thread denied.... because it's pretty much an imitation of this http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=246077. You could join that instead, and suggest that the world you want to play in gets put up?

Royal's RP thread and OOC thread are accepted.

fire woven's RP is now accepted.
fire woven's OOC thread is also accepted.

ultragon's RP thread is denied because the plot is too short. On my screen it was just 4 lines. Compare it to most of the RPs around.


(the following is not just directed at ultragon) I think I'm gonna start being a little harder on the plot part, because there are so many RPs appearing with a story that feels like it's just haphazardly thrown together or thought+written up within a few minutes.

Before you create an RP, you have got to have an idea. Evolve that idea and ponder if it would work out as an RP. Then think about how the RP would best be played and what role you as a game master should take.

But before all this, you should ask yourself if your plot even makes sense. A horrible monster/demigod/villain has returned and wants to spread crime/murder/destroy the world? Oh, let's hand a pokémon to 10 young kids and have THEM go stop the evil! -.-' that's... not really logical unless you're making a parody-RP. Which most here aren't. Sure, you can do like this if you twist it so that it is necessary to have the trainers young and new because of their pure hearts or untouched auras or something like that. But otherwise it's pretty weird.

Now, illogical plot isn't the same as using unnatural or mysterious and thus "illogical" things to achieve an interesting/unusual plot. I don't mean to sound full of myself at all, but Darkrai's Balloon is probably an example of a simple idea with an unusual plot where some "magical" things happen.

Just... something to think about when you decide that you want to create an RP of your own. Creativity is your friend.

FallenAngelSilver's RP is denied because the plot is too loose. Freeform RPs should have some guidelines set up, or they can easily die after a while from lack of creativity and story.

MoonstoneSkitty's RP is denied because the opening post's text is all jumbled together. It's very hard to read; you should use the ENTER key to make several paragraphs instead of one big wall of text. From what I could read with some effort, it seems like it could be accepted though. Please post it again, with proper formatting, and we'll see.

jackblaze's RP is denied. There already is a pokémon academy RP that hasn't even started yet, and they are pretty similar. And the plot for yours is pretty much non-existant. Unless an academy RP is very detailedly set up, it works the best if there is a background story to build on and having the academy as mostly a setting.

Ash_Ketchum123's RP thread is accepted. It looks awesome!

's RP thread is denied for being unreadable and lacking a SU sheet. You should hit the "preview" button sometimes to check what your post looks like before posting it. Now the tags aren't closed, among other things.

FallenAngelSilver's RP thread is denied. Because 1) you have already made an RP much like this one, 2) there's not really enough story or rules to build a roleplay on.

PiKasnAp
's RP thread is denied because the plot is wayyyy too short. You'll need to think it through some more, describe the setting at least a little and explain what the players are supposed to do, and who they are supposed to be.

Supervegeta
's RP thread is accepted.

miley810's RP thread is accepted, even though your SU sheet is awfully short... I guess you want the players to play the personalities of the legendaries shown in the movies?

998435's RP is denied for now. I can frankly not understand the plot. You should read over your post properly before posting it because now there are several grammar errors that confuses the reader. And maybe you should explain what tale beasts/tail beasts are a little more carefully (unless you're amining for already knowledgeable Naruto fans, but maybe you should state so then).

HunterZero's RP thread is accepted.

Marina E. Silver

mathewsggm's RP thread is denied. You should evolve the plot and build and describe a world where your players can play! :) And, read the rules before posting, please.

Fire Walker's OOC thread is pending until you PM/VM me promising to add a rating as soon as the thread is approved. The RP looks very interesting!
