I'm getting tired of this:
« on: 08 Jan 2017, 09:53 »

Folks are talking in 'The Summit', but not 'Intergalactic Summit', where DK is.
Unacceptable!
So, in 'Out of Character' channel:

 [ 2017.01.08 15:41:39 ] Lasairiona Raske > DK, don't be bitchy. A lot of these RPers have been around for a while and created some of these channels. It's rude to treat them so indifferently.

We've reached a new level of bitter.

You've discovered that DK accumulated enough salt to maintain a self-sustaining reaction over being removed for being an absolutely unrepentant waste of everyone's time and energy both in and out of character that's so far disconnected from reality that you could be called a liar for pointing out the sky is blue.

How is it living in the past, Grae? :P

3) The lack of suitable male partners can be summed up in most cases thusly: interested, worth the air they breathe, available; pick two.

I don't really understand anymore why it has to be one or the other. Frankly, both have merits, but I find The Summit provides a slightly higher class of RP than the IGS. I'll RP in The Summit if I want a better response than ZOMG, stuff happened!

Just going to second Las's post that I RP everywhere I can. More choice is always good.

Plus it bemuses me people still get their panties in a twist over another player to the point they can't let go. And that's directed both ways.

Frankly, both Summits are shitholes that only occasionally have some fun and interesting discussions.  Give me a choice betwern dealing with the never-ending cycle of decrying the latest BS being propagated by Funk/Kim/Nauplius/etc and doing something else, the latter almost always wins.

Frankly, I'm -this- close to making a new invite-only RP channel, one that would improve the signal to noise ratio and actually allow for some discussions to be held without it devolving into Kim-level diatribe.

Going to either Summit is never appealing to me, which makes me sad because I want to Roleplay more. It always just feels so...shallow.

"General" style chatrooms will always devolve into low brow content. It's the nature of any space for everyday conversations.

You can limit the crowd, but all you end up doing is tightening the pool of voices. I don't think we need ever more channels, given several I'm in barely get used because of aforementioned constraints.

You can deal with trouble makers, but handpicking who gets to be in the cool club and who's quality enough just serves to make more divided echo chambers of particular RP thinking (style, not faction.) Far better be it that people stop whining about so and so person and out compete them for content, or start up a different conversation in the channels to pull attention to where you want it.

But its your time energy and effort so if you want to make a seperate channel go for it. I just think we have far too many people wanting to consume content then to bother with producing it.

I'm going to make my own RP channel called "Intragalactic Summit" where everyone but me is banned.

More seriously, the quality in both summits tends toward poor, as general chatrooms tend to. OOC ones do that too, they're guided by whatever happens to be on the minds of people that are paying attention, and when there are 20-35 people in said channel, that can lead to some incredibly disjointed conversations and/or weird flirting. Smaller channels can be better for that, but they also have the problem of low activity, and the other things that people have already mentioned.

I'm in both, and they're pretty much the only place I RP at this point(aka, I don't RP much at the moment), and I think the summit is slightly better.

There are lots of RP opportunities.  Much of which in niche channels now, do to the prevailing 'you are not doing it right' attitude of some.  But I have made a resolution to try the general population channels more, they have value and we should try harder to make them more attractive places to RP.

General channels can be quite enjoyable when certain people aren't around to disrupt them, though.  Take the indivuals I mentioned above out of the equation, and population tends to rise in them, increasing participation and conversation...  Those nights tend to be quite rare and fun...

Careful, you're implying there are new characters in either of these channels that are not alts.

If the player is any good at RPing, the personality/traits/goals will be different then their other characters. So if we're staying IC these new faces are new faces.
