That's how you make friends in the RP and get to hang out with them. If people read one of my threads, they'd get what the RP was. When I first started RP'ing here, there were characters, but people rarely used them, they enjoyed being themselves, and if they wanted some kind of power, they'd just do it. Not make up an entire super hero in their mind, they were still themselves. Not taking on a completely different personality. I am myself when I RP, many others are. I'm not saying everything should be one way, I'm saying that it shouldn't be that way all the time. If anything there should be a sub section for it. But when people just RP like that it just looks retarded because when I started RP, it wasn't like at all. I wouldn't mind it so much if there was at least some creativity involved, but there isnt. It's literally been the exact same thing and it's increasing. It's as if nothing is original anymore. People don't understand that it's not about the battling here, that's been going on since started RP, Howard and I still do it now because it's fun. But being another character the entire time and not being yourself is just ridiculous. If I want to make friends here, I'd expect them to level with me at some point and be able to hang out here in this section. The RP I am seeing now days is just generic to the RP that was. People shouldn't be in character the entire time, they should be able to be themselves at least once in a while, that's what allowed people to say "Hey, that person isn't doing something that is just weird and doesn't involve me, maybe I can go say hey". Now it's "That person is fighting over who the father of their baby is, I'm not sure if this is the Maury show or Konoha town".
