Anonymous asked: I'm on an intermediate mature roleplay, but everyone has horrible spelling and grammar. I'm thirteen and I have better grammar and spelling than them and they all say that they're twenty.I then posted a character ad for my character's husband. I stated that they are a romantic couple. This person says she's not comfortable with M rated threads! I don't think she read my character ad and now, I'm so mad. Another lady was so rude to me. What do I do? I like the site and the staff are so friendly!
I’ll be quite frank: I’m far more impressed by your maturity than your spelling and grammar. Don’t get me wrong, you’re a brilliant writer, but it’s just so reassuring to see a young person who can express themselves as beautifully as you have done, especially in this MTV generation.
Back to the matter at hand: From what I understand, you’re on an “intermediate mature roleplay” site; however, the skills of other roleplayers aren’t quite up to par with the site’s claim. While that is definitely irksome in and of itself, I’m really glad that you didn’t let that hinder your initiative to plot a relationship for your character. From what I can see, the main issue seems to be your interactions with other roleplayers, in particular the female who assumed you were looking for something inappropriate versus romantic (despite your ad clearly stating the latter), as well as the other lady (such a well-tempered term) who was rude to you.
You mentioned that you like the site’s staff, so I would definitely suggest that you contact someone on it and explain your situation. I’m sure they’ll definitely be willing to address the issue, whether it’s by instilling higher standards on the site, or posting an announcement about member interactions. In either case, it’s important that they know what’s going on because site staffs do their best to keep an eye out on issues like this, but they sometimes go undetected. I would also suggest that you try to build relationships with members who are on a similar level to your writing. Better yet, find an RP buddy who you can help with some issues (e.g. spelling/grammar), while they help you with yours (e.g. graphics/coding). You are also more than welcome to post your character request on Caution (or any resource site for that matter), all whilst clarifying that you’d like an intermediate, mature and understanding roleplayer to play him. While I’m confident that one of the previous suggestions will be beneficial to you, know that there are many intermediate mature roleplay sites looking for someone like you to join. Don’t let a bad experience like this discourage you from going out and joining a new site, or stop you from talking to new people, because I’m sure there are dozens of roleplayers in your exact position that would love interact with someone like you.
I apologize if that was far too long and rambly, but I sincerely hope that it helped in some way.
Best of luck,
