☣: A pet peeve about roleplaying
ooc: Ahh— I have a few, but that is only really connected to the community in particular and maybe not directly involved with the act of roleplaying entirely. I guess— people are way too serious. You might misunderstand me, but when people log on here to relax and often escape from what life throws at them, it is very difficult to unwind when there are so many rules put in place. When I mean too serious, I don’t mean people should slack with their characterization or lose all their dedication for a particular character, but really to be more open-minded. To be acceptive of writing styles, interpretations, icons, themes and the personal goals that a person will put in place for themselves.
I always used to tell myself if you are too busy criticizing everyone else, you - yourself - will never develop. Give constructive criticism when it is prompted, but please do not write out passive aggressive rants and have it spread throughout the community in order to force your opinion of something down someone’s throat when they did not want to receive it in the first place.
No one was born a perfect writer. No one was born a perfect artist. No one was born a perfect person. There is no such thing as perfect, so stfu and eat a snickers.
