Perhaps, you should consider the fact that there are language differences within this community and that we all try to be careful to avoid confusion, but it sometimes happens.
Well, wouldn't it be nice to just read exactly what I write as it actually means literally?
Nothing more, nothing less. Without an automatic assumption of some 'thought crime' behind my words.
I saw you posting four long posts (Note that you place (RP) onto the title AFTER I asked you about it) and believed that you were writing a story.
As a moderator I asked if you had placed it in the wrong place.
As a player you explained that you had not and that was the end of the matter.
1) it was only two
posts, the thread 'introduction' and the first post for my character...that was it. 1dimsum had not yet posted, and I had not yet responded to his posts. The length of the posts should've had no relevance on the matter.
2)The introduction post for the thread, also included at the very top of the introduction, just after the title of the thread, had the names of 1dimsum and Lovelynice as the players of the thread.
3) You could've just read that 2nd line under the thread name in the introduction to know that it was a roleplay thread.
4) You could also have simply asked in a nice way "Is that a roleplay thread?", instead of assuming straight off that I was in the wrong, apparently can't read the titles of sections, and telling me that my 'narrative' should be in the story-telling section. You didn't just "ask" me what the thread was, nor did you give the benefit of the doubt that since it was in a roleplaying section that it might in fact be a roleplaying thread until proven otherwise...especially as the names of the two players were stated just under the title line in the introductory first post on the thread, and it was only two posts.
5) I've never needed to put "RP" onto a game title in a game section before, but since guilt of doing wrong was apparently being assumed first
on repeated occassions, it seemed like I would have to put big easy to read labels on everything to avoid further pre-assumptions of "This person is doing something wrong", other moderators assuming this before
reading the first post of the thread.
I would suggest that you too read what is written first, before jumping in again and accusing everyone else of accusing you?
I do actually. It would be nice if people read my posts for what they exactly say, and didn't look for hidden signs of potential wrongdoing to lecture me about.
I just wish to point out, that although I'm sure you and other 'old hands' on this site have had many problems with a few newbies who broke rules, that all newbies on a site should not be treated with the preconcieved assumption of being more likely guilty than innocent until proven with time.
By the way, I'm not trying to start some flame war either. I would just like it that others stop lecturing me on every little sign of possible 'thought crime' or potential rule-breaking before any such have been shown to in fact have occurred. I already stated 2 days ago that I agreed to the site rules, and stated that I had read them, please stop acting as if I have not. Do I as a newbie on this site need to place such a statement in my signature as well?I apologize for any stress that this may have caused you, and I will leave it at that.
