ive admined a ton of sites. some successes, some failures. but as of recently, nothing seems to be working. for sites in general, what keeps people coming back? what makes them last? a nice, accountable, active admin staff doesn't seem like its enough.

Honestly? I haven’t even FOUND a site with a nice, accountable, active admin team in a long time. I’ve seen seen cliques and people who turned out to be assholes. I can’t speak for the whole community, but  I miss the soul of roleplaying which we used to have in spades. Now though? Not so much. Now-a-days it’s all the same bullshit and nothing that really grabs your attention and when it does, good luck getting plots unless people are sexually attracted to your face claim. You also get a lot of admins that don’t even bother trying to plot with everyone, so it adds another layer of unease and not feeling welcome.

Basically, for me at least, what I want is something that’s actually fun and isn’t the same bullshit that’s been rehashed a thousand times with nothing new or exciting or even vaguely interested thrown in. Even more than that though, when I actually find a site that has that spark - that soul or whatever - I don’t want to feel like an alien stepping out of his space ship to excitedly interact with the natives only to feel like they don’t give a fuck if I’m there or worse, downright hostility because I’m not part of their clique.

So I guess, just something fun and welcoming with as little political bullshit & out of character drama as possible. A site that doesn’t make everything seem like a chore, which roleplaying has become lately although it never should be.

EDIT: Also, the existence of radical “social justice” is NOT helping. I understand wanting diversity as I am part of a two or three minorities but acting like a Nazi about it isn’t fun. The first thing I ALWAYS check for first is I go to the rules, control + F, and type in “trigger”, because if they have a mandatory trigger warning rule I’m out of there. As someone with severe anxiety, IT’S FUCKING OFFENSIVE and yeah, no thank you.

idk how this was meant to be the least bit constructive. using someone’s innocent and well intentioned question to air your grievances with sites that have wronged you feels super uncalled for.

In answer to anons. q i think right now (well, from what I’ve observed anyway) rp sites in general are a little quieter? Which might be down to people going back to high school and college starting up again? I think the only thing a site needs to succeed is admins who are invested, who stick around when things are busy and when things are a little quieter and like value their members? your site doesnt need to be huge to be successful. a small member but loyal member base should not be disregarded. as to how to make people stay, some people are just rather ‘transient’ rpers and will drift from site to site regardless of how flashy a site is or how detailed the plot is <3

Oh yes, saying “most sites are generic and are chasing people away because of various issues” is TOTALLY not constructive.

And yet somehow instead of just replying to the question yourself you had to feel the need to attempt to call me out, aka wanting to start shit?

Oh look…I must have somehow found one of your selfies:

How adorable you are!

(Oh and if you somehow missed it for a third time: me saying that things are generic, sites aren’t welcoming anymore, sites aren’t unique or fun anymore, and that most sites feel like a chore IS constructive via one can easily go “okay let’s not be a team of assholes, not allow cliques to form, make sure everyone feels welcome, and come up with some original ideas”. It’s really not that difficult to figure out what the hell I meant. It’s not in some encrypted code for fuck’s sake) 

Notice how your summary was 1000 x less aggressive.  I have no reason to want to start shit with you though with how you talk to people unprovoked, it’s no wonder you’ve had bad times on sites (note, that was me purposely being an asshole c: ) I didn’t miss the point of what you said, my issue was it was pointlessly antagonistic to someone who hasn’t dont anything to you. I don’t want to derail this question any further, so reblog this and call me anything you want. I’m really not interested.
