Uh…New age? X_X What are you talking about? Sweetie, you joined like…2 months ago. You weren’t around before the RP standards fell. And this is not “Here is my excuse why I am not trying and I used to be really good” I looked at your post in the “Falcior Academy” They still aren’t all that long.
Ok first: Do NOT call me sweetie.

Second: You would have no idea what the New Age thing is. It is not on here.

Third: I'm not trying to use this as an excuse for my ****** RPing or a pity party. -_-

Forth: Well at least I'm trying. -_-

Fifth: I know I wasn't around before they fell. I just assumned that it was the normal posting length -_-

Sixth: Stop directing your whining at me. -_-

So, you only listen to the master part and ignore the rest of it... I was joking. Anyway just start posting with more detail and you'll be fine.

Hmmm. Personally, I think you're right. It seems as if our standards are dropping. But, I try. But other people post short posts and I can only respond with a short post....It makes my heart bleed. </3

However, if I REALLY feel like it, then I'd do super long posts in a RP with one liners and stuff.

Actually, I've got quite a lot of great ideas on how to set this up, so I definitely think I'll go for it.

You can count me in ;3 I remember boring RPs is what drove me away from Pokecommunity. All the RPs there were either PMDs or anime-style.

I don't think the problem is the lower-level RPs. Honestly, I encourage lower-level RPs, even if they do churn out one-liners or whatever, because that offers a chance for those people at that level to practice and improve rather than being shoved into more complex RPs and getting overwhelmed. Heck, I started my RPing on Neopets, where there's a 400-character limit per post. You get better doing those types of things, and it's not like somebody doing short, beginner posts in an RP full of short, beginner posts is going to hurt anyone else.

No, the problem is that higher-level RPs have vanished off the face of the intertubes...er, PE2K, anyway. If I had to take a stab at it, I'd say it's because the higher-level RPers are all scared off by the influx of lower-level RPs, so nobody is making RPs anymore because "the one-liner guys will flood it onoez," when really it doesn't have to be like that. That's what sign-ups were made for: quality control.

Just my confusing two cents, and I haven't been alive as of late to totally justify it, so yeah. 8D;

EDIT: I would like to express my glee at the idea of an RP Design Contest, and would also like to promise cookies to anyone who makes/runs/whatevers it.

Actually the higher level RPers were gone before the influx of new RPers. The RP boards had been pretty dead for a while. This is particularly a reason why I don't want to be too hard on the new RPers, even though a lot of their posts would have been unacceptable when I first join. So yeah, I'd rather have low-level RPs than a dead RP board.

Now don't get me wrong, as I have nothing against a decent version of these types of RP, but the only change I feel should happen is a limit on spin-off / "academy" style RPs. I feel that these have been overdone to death (The latter especially) on practically every RP forum in existence, and people just fall into a kind of "comfort zone" with a certain brand(s) that they like, and RP it over and over again. By limiting these spin-offs, I feel we could encourage neweR-Pers to generate more unique ideas for RPs, which could potentially help their RPing abilities. Not necessarily non-one-liners and detailed plots, but at least some new idea no one's thought of before.

Much like the Simpsons plots, everything has been done before so originality is all but impossible to come by :P.

It's all explained right here.

Also, in other news, I started that RP design contest. You're free to put chat in there, I'm going to directly link all of the submissions on the second post anyway.
