I've thought about role playing before, but I'm worried I'll compleatly suck.... (hehe ^^'')
Listen, it often happens to me that I write a lot and in return I get little or at least significantly less. So what? Writing stuff is fun for me. I sometimes go 6-7 paragraphs long. My partner responds with 2. Am I getting mad? Of course not.
That's because I enjoyed every single one of the paragraphs I wrote. And I hope my partner(or partners, if it's a group) enjoyed reading them. I don't expect them to match me. I just hope they had as much fun as me when they where writing their replies and that rp will keep going smoothly and cool.
Occasionally I do. Recently I've been off role playing for a bit but now I'm slowing trying to get back into it. Most of the role playing I've done is on AF, I find it's more friendlier and entertaining environment. Some of the RPGs here are well thought out.
Which of course means the other don't necessarily know what they're doing either, so I think having an active and competent GM is more important on AF than on some other forums where you can just get the players rolling and almost walk away.
My attitude is that any post is better than no post. And I often encourage people with writers block to make a little post like that just to signal that they're still there, active, and interested, but they've got no idea what to do.
I find out of character communication helps a lot on these sorts of things.
Because if it WAS a forum post ... seriously, I would have that other poster wedgie'd. That's not even lazy ... that's just pointless. They have all the time in the world - no deadline, nobody waiting on them like in a chat RP - and they type four words? I'm sorry, but ... no. Even my FIRST RP POST was longer.
Of course I can understand that some people just aren't as good at RPing or as creative, and I'm not just being a hypocrite. I can RP good, but I often settle for one-paragraph posts unless it's on a forum. The reason is to limit unnecessary information and to keep the RP moving at a good pace, since it's in a chat and therefore your RP partner/s are there waiting for your response as opposed to a forum post which can be done whenever you want and you can take your time on. I've RPed with people who struggle to type more than two sentences. I've concurrently RPed with someone who insisted on typing a novel chapter's worth per post in a chat-based RP, and I ended up complaining that I didn't particularly enjoy waiting 40 minutes for a response due to how long it took. I respect the skill of others and I often try to scale myself to their standards (a shorter RPer will get shorter posts, someone who posts longer and with more detail gets longer and more detailed posts ... I've always been that way), but coming in on a FORUM RP and typing four WORDS? I expect more from greetings posts in Intros.
I'll end my rant now. :l
Yeah, I roleplay with my friends all time and it's fun to come up with characters, locations and situations for it.

Yes, I use to be very active in forum RPGs. So much fun.
I am too connected to youTo slip away, fade away.Days away I still feel youTouching me, changing me,
Considerately killing me.
I tried once, but never liked it.
And I wouldn't want to do it IRL either, since...
There isn't really to do it with, so yeah.
There are days where I don't feel like anything; on those days I simply and honestly state I don't feel up to an RP, simple as. I don't see the point of taking part in something I know I'm not going to want to put effort into.
... Typing this also warmed my hands up. Yayzers.
Every once in a while during RPs that I'm involved in, it comes to my attention that my posts are significantly longer than most others in the thread... I end up wondering if I take the storytelling aspect too seriously....
It's way too easy for me to get caught up in developing and planning how I want my character(s) to act, that I don't pay much attention to how much I've written until I've already posted.
I do, but only through D&D. Forum rps just don't provide what I like in an rp which is reaction. Posts give players time to think. Besides that 99.9% of rps here last a week and are dead. Sunny's is the only one that bucks that trend and even then it's only posted in every few days.
