Roleplaying
31 March 2015 #1
So, for us dinosaurs of the site, roleplaying is a function you used to be able to do in the 'Talk' area at the side. I know that the large majority of the members on the site aren't native English speakers, (sorry if I offend anyone...), but I want to know if anyone's interested in to breathing life into the old roleplaying function, and if so, what ideas do you have for it?

#23 Actually I seemed to recall that everyone used rp classic, happy as Larry, and then the site owners created the newer roleplay function. Of course, no one wanted to use it. Why should they when they were happy with rp classic? Anyway, rp classic broke (and still is broken to this day) and people didn´t want to use the new rp function because classic remaining unfixed came across as an attempt to move everyone onto the newer function. Instead, people used neigh (or guestbooks) to roleplay.

Yes, everyone started using classic when it came, but I am pretty sure it wasn't on the website when I started rp-ing. It was so many years ago (11-12 years) that I can't say for sure, I just know that when I started everything happened in Neigh and not in an rp-function. It was on stallet.se though, and they have a forum in Neigh dedicated to rp, which they don't have here on MDS

Also, a lot of members left when roleplay classic broke because roleplaying really became the only reason for many to still be using the site. They ended up with no reason to stay since it broke, and many struggled to get to grips with the newer function. I know I did. Not fixing roleplay classic was the biggest damage to mds, and its lack of membership has been a big feature since.

#22 Yeah I know, I just got a little nostalgic ^^ when I started role-playing everyone did it in neigh, it was waaay before the classic function was released haha

Answer to this post:
#20 As far as I know you can roleplay without ruby or gold membership, make characters etc. You only need a membership to actual create a roleplay but there are plenty of active ones looking extras around and plenty of gold/rugby stables you can team up with if you´d like to start a roleplay.

"Role play classic" you can create one character, but if you use "Role play" you can create multiple characters without any memberships. D so yes, it is possible to role play without memberships.

#18 Why don´t we just start a role play here in neigh like it was before, when anyone could enter any role play :)

But everyone could still participate if it is made into rp-area. (: It doesn't take ruby or anything to make a character and information is everyone to see there.

#16 I don´t care that this thread is nearly two years old: it would be great if rp was reignited!
Animalzabba

I agree! I remember when roloelays had about 5+ people in them and each of them wrote a decent paragraph when they posted. Difficult to read and almost always ended up getting left behind as we all posted at the same time xD but far better than roleplay being dead

#11 ... I´ve been a bit of both, but normally a human looking creature, with.. ´´Powers´´ beyond the normal.. Most my characters have always been rip-offs from series I like..

Aha, I started writing a short story, that was a rip off of a Doctor Who short, but with a few tweaks I've done that before though, totally 'borrowed' a character But yeah, humans with powers is a cool idea

aha, I have a few videos to do first, like design making, I have an SP on to edit, and I need to do a HP making one too, but I'm planning on doing those this weekend Errm, why don't we use another function that's a bit dead, and do a stablepoll? Get folks to vote on what they want? But personally I'd say humans

4 April 2015 #9

aha, my friend likes the Walking Dead,I'm just not a big fan of Zombie stuff I mean, I think maybe a real life style RP, would be best, to get everyone into it, using the new RP function etc If you want I can do a tutorial on it on my YouTube for MDS tutorials?

4 April 2015 #8

Well, we mainly used the new, but I think we did have a go on the old I personally haven't seen the Walking Dead, all I know is that it's a zombie show

#6 Well, I did roleplay quite a lot in the beginning of my membership on MDS.. Uhh, the danish version - I don´t see why not, I wouldn´t do it again - It could be fun.. If I was good at making plots.. I´ll think about it.

Awesome, it's just a dead feature, and if we kick life back into it again, it might add another string to the site's bow, and another reason why people might want to come

I haven't been taking part in too many roleplays, since last time I was a member here my english was way too bad to write longer posts... But I've read a lot of them, and I'd love to join in if you're okay with writing with a noob

#2 Whew. I was a huge RPer back in the day. I started out RPing on here in 2009 and fell in love with collaborative writing. And now I´m a member of staff on the huge site www.roleplaygateway.com. So, naturally, I am all up for this. As far as ideas go, horse-related things are always a good start-up considering where we are. But to keep things going it´s be great to have a structured plot and setting, and dedicated players, of course :3

Of course, I rp'ed a lot too Uhm, horse ones are good and stuff, and real life etc, and then get into the nitty gritty like fantasy etc I joined RPG when MDS was going to close, not been on it since I write fan fictions and stuff on tumblr, not done one for a while though Uhm, it got irritating waiting for people to reply, but if people are busy, that's understandable, and some people didn't write very long entries, so :L

I've no idea, I'm not very active on the sister sites To start everyone off I though, basic ones, like high school setting, etc
