Role Play Etiquette

Post by Cassandra Crouch on Wed Mar 12, 2014 10:13 am

For those who are new to "serious" role play and not just stuff on Pottermore:

Take turns in the role play. Try as much as possible to stay in the correct rotation. Don't jump ahead of someone's response.

Don't godmod. This is in the rules. See how important it is?

Don't expect a person to know everything about your character. It is rp. Sometimes the characters are just meeting each other.

Don't leave a whole bunch of out of character phrases in an rp. We have a chatting thread for that. Or you can chat in private message. When you do say something out of character, use "ooc" to indicate it is out of character. You do not need to do this in the out of character section. We know you are speaking ooc.

Make an effort to write. Don't "text" talk, i.e. I c u r.... That looks like "I cur" to me. You are a dog. -laughs- This is a weird example, but that's what came into my mind. You can do this in the chatting thread, but not in the role playing.

Don't treat characters badly. Your character may be mean or annoying, but don't degrade people constantly. Not everybody can just roll with things. No drama.

For the sake of avoiding drama, nobody will have special titles in the role play. No prefects, head girls, quidditch captains, etc.
