That may be true to an extent, but RP's are still forum games and shouldn't receive special treatment.

I have noticed that you have not put the time in and posted in one of our wonderful RPs.


Maybe if you spent an hour writing up a nice story then you would be singing a different tune.


Your opinion is flawed. Go play an RP.

You are doing an RP for fun, not real intellectual discussion. It is still a game. If you are just doing it for fun, then post count shouldn't matter.

Besides, making a new section just for RP's wouldn't work. There wouldn't be enough topics going on to sustain itself. The board layout is fine the way it is.

No you are wrong.

Plain and simple.

Just because you don't want to take the time to play an RP does not mean you have to ruin it for the rest of us that do. I'll be damned if all my hard work and effort in an RP is nullified because people like you refuse to recognize it.


It is not a game. It is a story.

It shouldn't affect you Pilot. I'd agree though, there should be a seperate board for RPs. These games are constructive and more creative than any other lame post count fest. I consider them to be upbuilding and contributional being that you gain skills at becoming storytellers and writters. Just saying it's still just a game shows me you never really played one or even observed one.

EDIT: Rename Forum Games to Garbage Can.

Just wait a minute there, Pat. Your "hard work" isn't going to be somehow nullified just because it doesn't count towards your post count. You'd still do it anyway, wouldn't you? Otherwise, if you wouldn't do it just because it didn't contribute towards your post count, it definitely doesn't deserve to be included. Also, see my next point:

I have noticed that you have not put the time in and posted in one of our wonderful RPs.

Your opinion is flawed. Go play an RP.

This isn't a valid line of argument. By your reasoning we could say your view is equally biased or "flawed" because you participate. Cut down on the circumstantial ad hominem.

I know you're desperate to see your point of view promoted, but don't just claim someone is plainly and simply wrong without refuting their actual arguments, it's bad form old chap.

Now whilst I agree that far more effort goes into a post in an RP, I really don't see the specific need to create a new forum section for them (which would raise its own attendant problems, like what to do with the CC RPs). However, there isn't any pressing reason to not make a section, so it seems it's just whether Steve can be bothered.

Also, it's worth affirming that these are still just games; you wouldn't ask for them to be put in Everything Else, would you? They may be telling a story but they are nevertheless games by most definitions.

You would be surprised, Daxx.

Don't worry, once this RP is over I will be out of your hair.

Your sexy... sexy hair.

Okay, some more people have voted, but no one has stated their opinions as to why they voted that way. Please say why you voted the way you did.
