So I was going back through some old RPs between me and a partner I am no longer in contact with and I could not help myself from smiling ear to ear. I loved those two characters and It makes me wish we still talked
It is saddening that I have to make another post like this, but its been brought to my attention that the RP Heroes of Humanity consisting of several of our former members and some old mods have stolen a large amount of creative property from Save This City and our previous RP, Into Each Generation. And we aren’t the only ones who have noticed. Here is an ask that was sent days before any of us found the RP.
Each mod of this RP is one of our previous members. Some members are our old mods. These were mods who were recent additions to the team when our structures had been in place for some time, not mods who brought those ideas to our games. I believe this is an important thing to distinguish.
Just a small number of things they have stolen are:
- Similar themes and color scheme and both comic themed RPs
- Similar rules format and near identical wording in places, all in the same order
- Use of “seasons” for telling plots
- Plots of the Week
- Our etiquette guide
- Our locations format
- Online interactions with person to person interactions only allowed to take place in chatzy or para.
- Costumed/Masked PMs to differentiate personas
- An OOC quotes tag on the main.
- Para mashups
- In character questionnaire challenges
- Same character bio format and use of both tags and singular character pages for preferences (most rps use one of the other)
- Same relationships, triggers page and follow page formats (all the same categorization and formatting)
Some of these are minor things and some far larger but the fact all these things exist in the same RP and our statcounter shows them having been stalking our page (which we will not post screenshots of for privacy reasons) indicates they have almost identically copied our whole structure and mode of operation. A lot of this is very unique to our games, which have been around for over two and a half years now. Some RPs do one or two of these things, but no other RP does them all, in the exact same way. We will always say that we don’t mind the occasional idea being used for inspiration here and there and have given previous games and mods permission to implement some of our ideas in the past. A problem arises when someone copies almost our whole game identically.
We also have reason to believe the members of this RP have been spreading discord, attacking our mods in their OOC chat and spreading rumors that have disrupted the course of our game and begun to create an unsafe environment for our players. This is not acceptable. I urge anyone who is considering joining this game to think twice before doing so. I have included screenshots below as evidence. Please reblog and get word out.
This is me right now. The group I’m currently in can get a little slow sometimes, especially since I’m in a way different timezone than most of them, and they all take 2-5 days on average to reply, anyway. I’m on my blog for this group pretty much all the time, so when there’s an open, I lunge at it just to have something to do. However, I failed to consider that this means I will have sooo many threads going on at once when everyone starts replying to my replies to their opens. And I can’t stop. I can almost guarantee that I will respond to the very next open that comes my way, hahahaha… ha… haha…
Self-control. What is it?
My character’s an auto mechanic who works mostly with motorcycles, and I know absolutely nothing about cars or motorcycles. I don’t even think I know how to do a proper oil change. This means I have to go on extensive research quests just to pull this character off.
My partner’s character started rolling a “cylindrical motorcycle part” around with his foot, and I told my partner I had to Google parts that could qualify before writing my reply because my character should know what that part is called. It’s perfectly acceptable for hers to call it a “thingy,” but not as acceptable for mine to do the same.
She just doesn’t know how I have the patience to look up every little thing, but I have to. XD
Sometimes I honestly just feel a little lazy or start chatting it up ooc while going back and forth between working on a post and talking. And a lot of the times this means I get distracted so if its been too long without a post from me I apologize for taking too long and then I just scrounge up a post in about 5 minutes. Its pretty amazing how I’ve developed this useful ability really. And half the time the posts are better than my well thought out posts that I put all my effort in to. Whats up with that?
This used to happen to me at work. If I absolutely had to use my phone for any reason I usually had to step outside and call my mom or whomever was picking me up. Aside from that even when literally nothing was going on I got yelled at about even though the girl who told me not to was constantly on her phone. It was a family business, so double standard much? This led me to the “I need to use the restroom real quick excuse.” Usually my partners knew I was working so I’d churn out a quick reply on my phone if I had their number and approved of me texting the rp for a bit. I’d just let them know they could reply and I’d get back to them asap. Quite useful if you can’t come up with another excuse and feel the overwhelming urge to churn out a reply. Afterall, if you take a little more than five minutes you can get anybody to shut their mouth with a simple “My stomach was a bit upset because I ate some bad sushi.” or something along the lines of that.

It’s super frustrating. JUST COME PLAY.
I roleplay in deviantart rp groups. I always find myself a bit scared approaching people to rp because I’m afraid I’ll get misunderstood like I want to rp because they have good arts or I want to rp because they have less good arts. Confused?
For me, if I find their OC interesting, then I’d really want to rp regardless their drawing skill. But if they have better drawing skill than mine, I’d feel a bit scared if they’ll think I want to suck up like I want something from them (like arts and so on) and later they don’t rp with me anymore. If they have lower drawing skill than mine, I’d feel a bit scared if they’ll think I rp with them because I don’t want to feel bad of my own arts so I rp with those who draw less good than me (and they wonder too why I want to rp with them), and later they’re the one who will feel scared of me and avoid me.
How to really show that you’re really interested to rp with them regardless their drawing skill? How to erase all these worries??? *sighs* :(
"You’d be so good at playing this character while I play the character they’re commonly/canonically paired with. ;)"
