    It is very unlikely that I will make one. In fact, there is basically a 100% chance I will not. I am very happy to lend a hand with other's efforts, but I basically cannot stand my own threads. 

    I used to run a great deal, some very involved, way back before the forum reset, which was in 2014, for those of you not around at those times. I have them all saved somewhere. The only one of that era that is left is Merry Band of Wanderers, if anyone wants to go root through the internet roleplay version of ancient ruins. I wrote that up the day after the forum reset in a desperate attempt to keep the community from puttering out, and it did work for a time. A few years after that there was a dark period where the entire forum was nothing but invitations for ERPs, and I'm glad we've lifted back out that lol.

    But now I'm old man rambling. Point is, I don't see myself making another thread, let alone an involved space exploration RP, without some very involved changes to my mindset on the subject. I am available for consultation/ideas at any time on the subject though.

    my only attempts at making a structured rp on this forum have either died or turned out to be not as fantastic as they seemed
    Never give up. Many sputtered out threads that lead to making a single moderately successful one is well worth it.

    Oooooooh! I misunderstood when you said you wanted one! Okay :D

    I'm glad you did what you could to keep the Roleplay forum alive :) And that you're still here!

    That happens... my first one did that too! And I felt the same way - I thought it was an awesome idea (Talking about The Asking Place) but it ended up I was the only one, lol. I got trolled, rolled with it best I could, and then lost my nerve :) Didn't do another one for like a year!

    I think luck plays a big part...and doing something people are actually interested in!

    PerfectPine is a master of ideas that spark if he ever comes around again! Has a problem with going idle tho... I never really forgave him for dropping off of the Odyssey one he started, lol

    I must be a 'control freak's' worst nightmare. LOL I'm such a random, haphazard, fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants type of gal. When I write my RP I just wing it, without really having a plan or destination in mind. I was a theater major and always did pretty well in improv. I admire people who can think out concepts and plan chapters, stages, phases, etc. But yeah, that's not me. And that's probably why I've never attempted to lead a RP here or elsewhere. So thank you to those of you who do! I love seeing all the creative writers who wander our forum.
    Hugs,
    GrannySmoosh (soon-to-be a different name)
    You know we all love your chaos, Tanarra ;)

    problem is i'm not good at the whole mafia/world war/combat schtick. My expertise lies in Lord Of The Rings type stuff. so far you seem to be my only companion in that, miss akira.

    I don't like mafia / war / combat at all, lol - I don't know anything about it AND I don' really care to learn, it doesn't hold any appeal to me really...

    Lord of the rings, Star Trek, Dragon riders of Pern, DND anything and everything especially the fae wild. Love that stuff.

    There's room for all types here - you start one I'll for sure join! :D

    As long as I don't need to know anything about guns, cars or inflicting random acts of violence and harm on people I'm down for it! :D

    I know nothing at all about pirates tho! I've seen Pirates of the Caribbean and been on the Disney ride - does that count?

    Absolutely same! I was lowkey planning to try and start a fully fantasy themed RP here and see if anyone decided to pop-in, but school decided to start kicking my butt before I had the chance. :/

    (Might still try this winter depending on what's happening irl. Obviously I'm not exactly active in the RP forum atm though and I'm hesitant to start up again in case things get busy and I have to disappear for a couple weeks at a time. )

    Fantasy RP? High fantasy or Low? Both have their merits for me.

    Honestly, I'd rather just play in other people's spots for now. Done that in the past in a more typical tabletop setting, but people just keep on flaking. Gets old.

    Ponder ponder ponder

    So, I'm running a couple RPs and I've been waiting for everyone else to post before posting again...and then doing one big long post as the GM in reply to everyone.

    But people have lives and sometimes just drop off while others post at high speed (Granny *heart*) and I love that and am inspired to write right away but... I haven't because I wait for everyone.

    I don't want to get too far ahead of those who don't post as often. Not sure how best to balance that...

    Anyone have any thoughts?

    Best to post replies right away and let people show up when they do?

    Or does it make sense to just wait until everyone is accounted for (even if it takes a week) like I have been?

    There is no right answer. People getting left far behind may require additional writing to catch their character up to everyone else. Waiting for too long kills your momentum, which is important in maintaining interest in threads long term. 

    Go with your gut.

    Yeah, I agree with strange.  If there isn't activity, it tends to peter out.  I too have RL responsibilities, but as of late, have been able to keep those speedy posts going. :D  I just enjoy the RPs that you've created Dawn, and Wood, and Strange, and Mr. Angelo... and all of our players in the RP forum.  Let's keep it relaxed and flowing.  Jump in, jump out, just enjoy it!
