Default A notice to some of the paragraph RolePlayers on AF

Alright, so I've been gone awhile, and when I left... there really wasn't much going on in the paragraph roleplay section. Now that I am back and have read some of your topics....

YOU PEOPLE NEED TO READ THE RULES!

Two sentences is NOT paragraph roleplaying!

For instance:

"Bob went to the market"

is not a post that a paragraph roleplayer would make.

This, however, would be:

"Bob was out for a walk, the beautiful sky over his head. His arms swung at his side, and his lips were pursed and whistling. Walking through the town, he would come upon a market, where he saw many things that interested him. Strolling among the merchants, he nodded to some of them, and waved to others. Stopping at a blacksmith's stall, he began to survey many of the weapons that were on display. In particular, he enjoyed the weight and feel of the hand a half sword that was made of Elven steel."

I know I'm not a mod in this forum, but I do have to ask that anyone that does RolePlay in here starts to follow the rules that Leilah had laid down at the beginning. There are rules for a reason, and they should be followed. If anyone would like an example of a decent Paragragh Roleplay, you would do well to take a gander at a Dynamic Duo (Shalko and Leilah). It doesn't have an amazing story line, but it's a prime of example of basic, down to earth Paragraph Roleplaying.

Thanks!

Shalako makes a very good point.

Now... I know I've been a very crappy mod. > > And I apologize for that. I should've brought this to everyone's attention when I noticed the concept of Paragraph Roleplaying was being ignored. I guess I just didn't want to offend anyone or make anyone feel like I'm being bossy.

-sigh-

The concept of Paragraph Roleplaying is to give the essence that you're actually THERE. You need to use description. You need detail. No three-line, short posts. This is going to sound very conceited, but 'Shalako and Leilah: The Dynamic Duo' & 'Starry-Eyed Universe' is exactly the way Paragraph Roleplaying should be done. It's for the people that are actually dedicated and are really into roleplaying, not just looking to up their posts.

Now... as a mod... I want Paragraph Roleplaying to be enjoyable for everyone. But please. Rules were posted for a reason. It would be great if they were followed.

If you have anything to add to this, please feel free to respond. But I don't want any fights breaking out. So if you have a problem with the way I'm going about this, feel free to send me a PM.

Thank you.

You're making a good point, Shalako. On one of the paragraph roleplays it's okay to only have a sentance or two. That one is an exception. Due to the fact that the players that play the Code Geass roleplay are from different timezones, Super Vegeku suggested we move it to the paragraph roleplay section.


((And I'm the one that's not really keeping up with the rules all the way, since I can only make my paragraphs a row [not a sentance, just a row long], but I've been trying to keep up as much as I could.))

And Leilah, you are not a crappy mod. It's true you might not be on all the time, but we understand that you're busy. You are a great mod. I've been trying to keep the paragraph roleplay section quite active, just for you. ^^
