When obviously younger role players have noticeably worse quality writing than the rest of the role players. We've all been at a point where our writing wasn't the greatest. Everyone goes through it and everyone grows out of it. That's what makes it worse, though; you can't really force that person into better writing, they kind of have to learn it themselves over time. I guess the only way to handle that is for each sign up to require roleplay samples, but that would mean some part of the roleplay community never really gets a chance to improve their skills.

I hate having people sign up and then immediately drop off. It really agitates me that I included them in posts or editing the OP just to have them leave right after. That's why I usually won't commit to RPs unless I'm sure I can at least get 3-5 posts in.

Honestly, whenever I see an RP that has a lot of skilled writers in it, I'm often turned off by it. Not because I hate the skilled writers, far from it. I admire those that can put in such a huge amount of effort and skill into their role-playing. It's just that, (and I know this sounds stupid), I'm kind of intimidated. And I know that the community here are very accepting of newbies and stuff, but I still can't help but feel intimidated.

So yeah, I guess my gripe is that I don't feel skilled enough to join a lot of the RP's here.

Why do I feel like you're trying to cover up laziness :I

You really shouldn't feel intimidated by other RPers. Nobody will ever judge your writing unless you ask for critique. Plus, if you belittle yourself so much, nobody will ever see how good you are! :o

I'm in agreement with that (on the second thing)

First part was a little harsh, but it was probably a joke, so whatever.

Second part is something that I'm really trying to work on. It's just something that is present now, and I hope to move past it soon.
