I have a gripe that I've been trying to hold in for a looong time.
Roleplaying online. You know text-based? Yeah that.
I put my SOUL into making a nice plot, and some easy to understand rules, I make it enjoyable.
Well I noticed on EVERY petsite I seem to go to, I'll spend hours making a roleplay, only to have two or three people join it. My current one has been up for three days now and only one person has joined it on this one petsite.
But lord behold it someone who has a plot of:
"yeah um, just a bad guy tryin to tak over the world n yeah, we gotta stop him."
And HUNDREDS join.
I try being unique, usually all the roleplays are are:
Animal-Human Mix (Usually a wolf rp)
or a Pokemon roleplay.
I try and spice it up.
I tried a SW one WAY back then and two people joined, I made it REALLY simple and even explained things so people could understand. they didn't even have to know SW as hxc as people are on here to roleplay my roleplay.
It never got started. Because there wasn't enough people and the ones who DID join never replied.
It's not just me, I've asked other literate and VERY literate users on the same sites and they too stated the same thing. It's like the more soul you put into it and determination to make it really good the less people join.
But people will surely join a Vampire roleplay with a horrible plot, no a lot don't even HAVE a plot, and the Roleplay maker's character as a:
Part Vampire, Part Werewolf, Part wizard, Part snake, Part Demon and so forth Mary-Sue, yet not ones that don't allow people to control YOUR character, people who put so much effort into making it great so you have a fun time?
Where's the sense?
I'm tired of typing up a great roleplaying post only to see that nobody wants to join because I'm not illiterate and -Gasp!- I have a plot and storyline.
I'm sorry I'm so angry because my current one, I used more than the usual effort I put into roleplays. Only one joined. Aaand they have yet to reply.
Users like me who try and make a unique fun-filled roleplay always get this. I DON'T know why. :|
