Ok, so I've blatantly stolen this from a thread over at the Praxeum but I found it interesting to hear what you guys find annoying in RP?

Here's what I wrote on thier boards:

ME! wrote:

Well Godmodding is an obvious one that I think we can all agree is completely annoying. Other than that I'd say outside interruptions when your guild/group are trying to establish some lore-based RP in a tavern. The amount of times I've had people interrupt our current guild story by butting in is ridiculous. It's just RP etiquette to send a /tell first to make sure that person is interested in taking part in some RP. Another pet hate of mine is when people use RP to exploit inter-guild personal agendas or problems. I know that all is fair in love and roleplay but I still feel that its completely unecessary.

Godmoding, as you said - but not just limited to playing God. I also hate it even the little things where people assume you're going to do something, like jumping over something or ducking behind something.

The worst annoyance for me in this type of RP is

*action* Speech

That. Where people use the asterisk to say what their character is doing, I just prefer the 'story RP' prose.

"Speech," action.

It's not something horrible, but I just think it seems improper and it annoys me. Razz

My worst annoyance is when I fall asleep on my keyboard and I miss the fun ^^'

Soude falling asleep and missing the fun is my worst annoyance too. Very Happy

In all seriousness, my biggest annoyance is when people take rediculous concepts for their characters - what I like to call "Special Snowflake Syndrome" - a Sith Pureblood Jedi Knight that is best friends with Yoda, for example. Such a thing would be extremely rare, but of course, that doesn't stop a million people making an equally rediculous character, making it not rare at all.

My hate from this mainly stems from my time playing on a perisistant world in Neverwinter Nights. On that server, we played in a scritly controlled environment when it came to anything special. If you wanted to play a Drow, you would have to write a lengthly application that would explain your character's motivations and what benefit they would bring to the server being a Drow rather than an unrestricted race. In fact, the process was so arduous it was designed to discourage people from playing special characters and just stick to the basic things that were available.

But yes, you are speaking truth. It was a major problem in Harry Potter role-play when I did it a few years ago because everybody was Voldemort's daughter or son or hidden lovechild with Harry. Sad

And here I thought that maybe one of our members stole this thread from here. Wink

Anyway my biggest problems with RP is timezones. Yes that's right time differences. Seeing as how I'm an Australian it's kinda hard to RP with people who are 10 or 15 hours behind you. Eventually you figure out what times different people are online and what time is best in general. I suppose I can always change my sleeping pattern to match those times though.

This does however give me a good chance to level up in games while everyone is sleeping so I'm not RPing at level 1 cause I don't have time to do both.
