Just stating a fact
« on: August 10, 2009, 12:59:08 AM »
How come some people when they don't want to continue just ignore you? When you ask them if you want to they just ignore your PM's or don't answer your question? I just had 2 of them in the last few days. I think if you don't want to continue you should be mature enough to just tell your partners you want to quit.

Anyone want to say something about this?

Some people don't like conflict. They find it easier to say nothing, in the hopes that it all fades away quietly.

Yeah well it's more grown up and mature if they say that they want to quit.

I think it depends on your point of view. It's never personally happened to me, but there are probably more than a few people who've gotten grief for wanting to quit a game for whatever reason. I can understand someone who would want to avoid that.

I understand that to. But when you send a few pm's wondering where they are and not getting a response it tends to get annoying.

Just forget about it, then. There's no point dwelling in a lost roleplay or a partner; if they don't respond after a couple of tries and you know they've received your PMs, just give up and move on. There are plenty of other potential partners in Elliquiy.

There are also some people that cling to the hope that their muse will return and let them continue on a given story.  Unfortunately, it tends to get a little self-defeating as they see the thread waiting for their response, and getting older and older, and every so often they open it up and get frustrated by not being able to come up with something to say, so they mark it unread so they don't lose it...

That's always been my feel on it, but many people are ignorant and irresponsible. I'd love to have a stupid filter for this purpose, to weed out all the people that don't deserve to be in my games in the first place, but sadly...

There's an ignore feature, if you ever wish to use it. It won't "block" their presence completely, but you won't need to read their PMs if you don't want to. :P

Just wanted to point out that if it is me you are referring to, then I have replied months ago telling you that. A. You keep bugging me for post even after I told you to stop. B. I tend to only do threads which I can write well in.  C. The thread we did have should of only taken a few days to complete. The story had a limited plot to it.

You see and I think there are people who would be ready to tell you, that it's more mature not to burn bridges behind them as they go in case they wanted to stroll them once again.

So, which one is more "right"?
