With all due respect I'll politely decline. Mostly because I've become burnt out on being a gm, and having to write up big posts. I'm doing it for shield hero on the so often but its not something I look forward to doing.

I suppose I could if no one else ends up wanting to.

If we are already complaining I'll be honest. I haven't been enjoying this game for months now. And it's not even the slowness that gets me. I thought long and hard about what is missing for me when playing on this forum. And the simple fact is that it's not the pace, it's the soul.

Roleplaying is not a solitary activity. It's not about posting up a piece of text occasionally and than going back into the shadows to wait for people to respond. That's called sitting alone in the dark being lonely.

Roleplaying is a social activity. It's absolutely the same as going to a party or playing sports or playing a video game together only for those of us more literally minded. It's not just about artistic expression (although that is a part of it) but about meeting new people and sharing that expression with them and doing so in an atmosphere of camaraderie, energy, excitement and just general hanging out.

Put simply, it's a social activity for us nerds. And when I came to this forum I was primarily hoping to get some of that sweet socialization. It was supposed to make up for the fact I am stuck in my home without anyone to hang out with. And that's just not present here. :(

To be blunt I've seen more socialization and hanging out at a funeral.

I won't be quitting or anything. But that's mostly just because I don't want to let you people down and not for my own sake. If anything I personally feel even lonelier now than when I joined.

@PPQ Purple Look, I fundamentally agree with you, but you yourself haven't exactly made much effort to socialize either. And for the record, I don't count complaining as socializing.

I agree though from my recent experience even though I don't like it too much discord has been good at keeping roleplays alive and make it easier for others to bond even when people are busy.

The thread really has never been the best place to socialize. People have always had ways to talk off-site.

So if Chev wants to make a discord for this RP I'd be down for it.

Well what am I supposed to do? All I can do is chat on this thread and that ain't happening. So I gave up and broke.

If I have to go off site to chat to the people I am supposed to socialize with on site than why did I register with the site to begin with?

First off, complaining carries more if you actually do the thing you're telling us to do. Second off, you're seriously going to complain about having a Discord? That is the literal exact socializing you've been asking for!

Yes, if a tool can not provide me with its primary function and instead forces me to seek out other tools to do the same than it is in fact useless as a tool. Shocking, I know.

If I have to go to discord or any other different site to socialize than what exactly is the purpose of me being here than? I can just go there and delete my account here.

This site has thus far been in fact useless in that nobody on it socializes at all. And I can honestly see why. Every time I say anything people just jump to shout me down. And than they are surprised I don't feel confident to engage with people. Again, shocking.

That's why I barely say anything and just retreat further into darkness. Because every time I peek out I get spat at. And since I don't have this problem in real life or any other site or social interaction I know it ain't me.

-
And god knows I tried chatting up the OOC thread and I tried engaging with you all and making some sort of community out of this. The first pages are proof of that. In fact I invested a lot more time and energy into it than I ever usually have to. But I eventually just gave up because nobody else was interested.

Okay, First of all I'd rather not have arguments here in the OOC. Second, I will admit, the idea of having a discord server didn't really hit me until King Kindred mentioned it. I'll have one up either later tonight or tomorrow because I think it's a great idea.

Let's just all try and be civil with one another.

It's still very much a WIP but I'll post the discord link if everyone is alright with that.

I don't know what to tell you because I'm really not sure what you want at this point.

You can't expect everyone to sit on a Roleplaying Site socializing all day every day. Even if they aren't busier than average that's just not a realistic expectation. Which is why so many opt to use discords to accompany their roleplay. For better organization and a better way to interact with each other. If you aren't even willing to make that little of an effort to join discord how can you complain when things are dry?

And you don't get spat at every time you peek out. You only peek out to spit and complain. Without looking back through the OOC I can't remember the last thing you said here that wasn't just negative or some form of complaining. You can't expect a place or people to be welcoming or sociable when that's the energy you bring.

Link to the Discord. Let me know if there are any problems with it. It's been quite a while since I made a server.

This. The site's primary function, as the RP Guild is for, well, the RPing. Discord's primary function is messaging and discussion and is way better at it. My other group RP would have died years ago if not for Discord.

What do you guys think? Should I stay on in this game or should I leave you?
Given your reactions to me so far I think it's fair from me to ask you to put it to a vote.

I believe that ultimately the decision to stay or go is yours. We plan to continue on with the roleplay. You have to decide for yourself if you want to as well.

If you want to stay, stay. If not, then don't. If you stay despite not wanting to or otherwise hating your time here, it won't be pleasant for you or us. I've been there, trust me.

Given the situation so far I honestly expected more people to just openly tell me to go away. You still can by the way. The primary reason why I asked is to give you a guilt free way of doing so if you want to.

Either way I shall decide in the next couple days.
