That does hinder one a bit, but it can be done! The phone I had prior to this was huge! Honestly it was maybe 3 inches across and double that tall. Rping on it was easy because it was more like a tiny tablet. But it died u.u So i have an S8 now.
I did MMORPG rp for a good while. Its really hard going from paragraphs and pages to express your every thought to a tiny chat box with limited characters in which you can describe what your character literally looks like or is doing. Its limiting.
That is fair. Not to tell you to go spend money, but there are keyboards that plug into the charging port of your phone. I have one. Use it for my tablet. Its a tiny awkward thing but its better than typing for ages on end on the phone keypad.
also on a ide note holy crap, i got a lot of hours last night but i feel like i've had no sleep
I don't really care for light up keyboards. They're fancy and all, but that's simply style points. However, I've noticed a number of light up keyboards having extra keys for keybinding, which would be rather useful for MMO players like myself if I weren't so used to using my mouse for keybinding. Everyone has their preferences, I suppose.
I have a lighted keyboard, but its because I type in the dark alot, and in addition my last keyboard had no lights and the letters painted on and i used it until the letters faded and it was sometimes a guessing game for what letter i needed. But my keyboard isn't one of those multi-coloured rainbow things. Its just red. And its either red or not red ♥ We specifically sought out the red one because blue light gives me migraines.
Otherwise its boring.
My mouse is fancy-ish, though. Its got a few extra buttons, and I can customize its inner glow light. That I find to be pointless. You never see it once you're using the mouse.
I never used to really care about fancy stuff. Especially because I just don't have good luck with electronics. Even now it's pretty minimal, but I do currently have a light up keyboard that constantly changes colors. It's nice. And I finally have decent gaming mouse that actually works! Of course, my PC still keeps getting overly dusty, but one step at a time. (That and I haven't really been doing a whole lot of gaming recently.)
Fortunately I am no longer plagued by dust and so this once common issue of it bothering my devices is at last over. Despite this, even years later, I do find sand in unexpected places within some equipment. It simply will never leave at this point I am convinced.
