|I just recently make an RP blog with my friend and it's our very first time. I don't know what I'm doing, if I'm doing it right or wrong, where I can improve and how to get people to apply. I'm a lost cause here! >.< Plus since it was supposed to be a story, we never really focus on characters aside from the main ones so we don't know-I don't know. Pfft I rambling. If it's not such a bother, would you come and help us out please? Thank you in advance.|
when you’re new to rp it can be a bit daunting and hard to find your way around. often it can be even rougher being in charge of a rp and it’s not something that everyone can do. i know that i, myself, prefer to just simply be a member unless i feel that i’m a part of a well oiled machine of an admin team. again i will say that there are few ways to do anything wrong on rp. it’s all a learning curve and working out what works for you and the people you write with.
what i can say from what you’ve written is: don’t focus so much on making the story. you’re only meant to set a basic outline for people to add their own ideas into it. if you make it too rigid and create the nuances of characters for people they’re less likely to want to take them on board. managing a role-play is about cultivating the creativity of your members and encouraging them more then anything else.
if you’d like to ask more precise questions about certain things feel most free to. you can also contact me directly on my own blog if you’d like private answers. however, i will put a disclaimer out that i have not and do not roleplay on tumblr so my knowledge on the exact way things work may not be too relevant.
