I just had a question about IM RP's. I've noticed that sometimes when I post a request for a story in the non-forum area, that when people do respond, they...um, are very ephemeral about it. Its like as soon as we establish that we want to do the RP, or you lay out characters and story and even an intro post to start, they have:
-Stopped Replying even though thye're online
-Logged Off immediately after your intro post and never come back online
-Ignore your PM's and IM's when you ask them about the RP a few days later.
It's a bit annoying because I like long-term IM RP's and it seems without fail that the people who come to me first to RP with them, they don't hold through, and they don't get back to you about the RP, especially when you put your idea aside to play with that person.
I've rarely had this problem with writing ON the forums, or by PM. I was just curious as to if this happened to everyone else and why.
