WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PLACE!?!
What happened to the site I loved years ago, where people where social, Rps were well written and well played and plentiful?
What happened to all of the nice people who were here and would always talk to one another?
What happened to the attitude of support and encouragement!?!
What happened to the drama free site that I could go and relax at?
WHERE DID IT ALL GO!?!
IN the five years I have been on this site, I am sad to say that this place is now a far cry, a mockery, A shadow of what once was.
Instead of plentiful and well written rps, NOW all that there is are people who are to damn picky about the rps they do, and if something doesn't go there way, its acceptable to just STOP responding all together unless you remind/ask them about the rp, instead of just talking to you about the issue, cause I guess DANCING AROUND THE PROBLEM IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO RIGHT!?!
And if they DO want to rp, MOST people (I put an emphasis on most because not everyone does this, and ALOT of people think most just defultly means all) won't even give a fuck about what they write. They just right a one sentence statement that is bland, unemotive, and just unimaginative as shit, like they don't even give a fuck about it. It will be RIDDLED with spelling errors, no thought will be put into it, and worst off, its just REALLY REALLY tedious to TRY to write a better response.
If that wasn't bad enough, its not like a lot of the people here care about the ones around them or of fellow artists.
What happens now? People get to write journals about how LONELY they are, EVERYDAY, and people will RUSH to let s/he know that people care. And then after they have, The next day the Very SAME people make the very SAME journal so that the very same OTHER PEOPLE can make the VERY SAME COMMENTS!!! And this cycle goes on, and on, and ON!
Then you got the people who take Hiatuses for "insert tragic and/or Whatever you can think of but not being to specific reason" worrying the most loyal of there watchers/sometimes potential friends, only to pop back up a few months later going "OH YEAH no everything is ok life is great and la la la la la" At least once every year. AND THEY STILL STAY!!!! These people, rather than move on with there lives WAIT hand and foot for the return of some of these people because they are "Good" artists.
BUT lets talk about THAT now...the "Good" attitude that is gone because of A LOT (see that emphasis again?) of "Good" artists think they are GODS gift to the DA/Art community. I have seen the following scanario:
Random not watcher who stumbles on a good pic by an artist: OH WOW! This is super good!!! ^^ I love the hair and design of your character the bio you wrote is perfect, and I sorta want to see more of this character! Keep up the good work 83
"To good for you artist": Thanks (never talks to them again after that)
BUT THEN YOU HAVE THIS!!!
Another "Good" artist who is on the first "Good" Artists watch list: Looks good.
"To good for you artist": OMG THANK YOU!!!! IT MEANS SO MUCH THAT YOU COMMENTED! (not like any one else does but whatever) I worked SUPER hard on my character/picture/whatever AND I AM SO GLAD YOU TOOK TIME OUT OF YOUR DAY TO NOTICE ME! 83 I did the BEST I could 83 I mean its not great but I am SOOOO GLAD YOU LIKE IT! 8D I worked hard on ...
You get the idea. You get the feeling that if your not noticed as the other people, no matter how appreciative you are of others art, you still get the shit end of the stick, and that's not cool at all.
And I am sure a lot of you are thinking "OH this guy is just fed up with not getting attention" Actually yes, to some extent your right. I am tired of not being talked to by others, but not because I want praise, but because I want conversation, good rpers who don't think leaving in the middle of an rp because you disagree with something is ok, who think making someone wait for a week for A SINGLE response is ok, who drift off and say "Oh yes I can rp!" and then wait a week and say "Oh wait no I can't because "inset unspecified reason here"...... I have never wanted recognition for anything I did, but now I can't even bring myself to write because I am done to like, one rp now cause no one can be honest or straight with me when there is a problem, or they end up "forgetting" about rps with me because "Fuck me" thats why, or I tell someone that I don't feel like rping something, and then they de-friend me because I don't want to do that rp...and I am so sick and tired of this. ALL THE TIME
So to sum up, I am thinking of leaving because this place is no longer what I hopped it would be, and I am not sure anyone can convince me otherwise. THOUGH I am sure no one WILL read this so I will sum this up more so, If you feel what I have said applies to you and are offended. 2 words
Fuck you. If you ever make someone worry, only to pop up months later and write off everything else without an explanation.
Fuck you. If you are so picky about rps you will literally STOP an rp because you can't talk to someone about it for weeks on end.
Fuck you. If you think that you are SOOOO much better then everyone eles that no one unless the people who are as good as you, are worth your time.
Fuck you. If you don't put any effort into the rps you do. Why do them any way?
