Anyone chat/play through IM?
« on: April 24, 2007, 11:13:41 AM »
Does anyone chat or play through IM, or is everyone here a post-only player?

I'm always on AIM and YIM at work, and have frequent downtimes when I'd love some stimulating conversation, and not just S-E-X...

Guess the immediacy of IM is something that I sorely miss with a play-by-post mechanism...

Do you like the immediacy of IM, or do you prefer the thoughtfulness and reflection PbP seems to have in droves?

(By the way, feel free to IM me if you want to chat...)

I like playing trough IM and there are some very cool people I play with.
And no, we don't do straight up 'cyber', we often are as creative as in PbP:)

Since I'm usually very long-winded, it doesn't matter to me which medium I use; I write my posts almost as spontaneously as I write my IMs, and I write my IMs as long as or longer than my posts. Of the two, I prefer posting, if only because it's in a nice, convenient place if I ever want to go back and double check some detail I mention hours, days, or even weeks ago.

My favorite medium for RP, though, is through MMOs, where the situation is more public, and anyone can jump in and enjoy a story, yet you can still get some privacy if you need it. Hell, one of my favorite sessions was just RPing a lazy Sunday afternoon, everyone lounging around the guildhall, discussing ideas, eating lunch, and relaxing.

I like IM or chat rooms, generally more.

But there is this little detail of being a few hours behind most of the United States...  Sigh.

Behind? You mean like Asia or Europe?

I do both, but prefer PbP, if only to be able to go to sleep, come back in an hour or 8, and continue the conversation, and noone is like, 'Dude where have you been.'

Sleep is overrated

I do some IM, its more dynamical then PpP but I sometimes need that little time to come up with the right story. Also my spelling sucks, so when I do so it is usually with people who can comprehend it

I rarely do IM play but i have done it a few times recently.

I usually ask my partners i find on AOL if they want to do e-mail play. I just like that best. But i usually get the "e-mail is slower" excuse.

though it's really not for me.

Problem i find with IM play is that usually you don't get long term stories
