i have some questions about the chatroom i've been sended there away a couple of times becouse me and some friends i found there were roleplaying, and 2 other people just would stop spamming us for spamming the chat with "RP bullshit". i asure you we were doing no harm (no 18+ stuff) on the roleplay. now i ask, do you NEED to make a RP tread for RP? or is it ok to also do it in the general chat?

 

becouse i get kinda tired for beeing sended away by one person wile 7 people are enjoying themselve.

Yeah I know what you mean, my reasons as to why we shouldn't allow it have been said in OP so, yeah....I guess it sorta leaves one or more people out, and hey, if you wanna role play, there is a subforum for that!

Role Playing is not suppose to take place in the public chat room.

That's what Cloudsdale is for...and if they really wanted to do it in real time there is private chat.

 

RPing in the chat room is just flooding/spamming. If you see someone doing that, I believe that's an appropriate reason to report them.

while I do agree with you, you can only private chat one on one, and most role plays involve more than two people.

and that's the annoying thing if you have 5 people in the chat, and all 5 of them are role playing, you basically get ignored.

i haven't read the rules on the topic, but if Rarity says that i guess Cloudsdale is where you wanna go.

Just a quickie since I'm still at work...

 

There currently are no rules regarding role-play relating to the on-site chat - be it for, or against.

 

Speaking of this issue, a number of reports have been filed today regarding chat conduct, both by those that are in favor of role-play in the chat, and those that are against it. These reports will be dealt with in several hours when I get home from work; during the process of which I will be doing a lengthy review of today's chat logs.

 

At any rate, I just wanted to toss this reply in so that you're all aware that WE are aware of the situation, and that we will act on it.

There is nothing said about RP in chatroom. And Cloudsdale it is kind of hard to RP there becouse you have to enter a message or refresh the page and that is annoying and + we were RPing in chatroom yesterday and NO ONE WAS CHATTING...the only thing that happend Grendo wen't "Would you stop RPing?!" I mean he wasen't chatting he says that spund effects from messages are like annoying him, but why in the heck you are in chatroom when you are not talking? You should just go away I am serious Grendo fcking broke out RP yesterday so what do I think. I think the should be made like a chatroom for RPers like you have to like create a password and then you can enter only with a password that is the best idea I can give out becouse Grendo allways say "Don't RP!" but I want to that's all...So I hope maybe there would be a chatroom for RPers with a password sistem this is all I want to have a good RP for God damn mind is that too hard to ask for?!

Both points of view from this issue sound reasonnable, but we have a place designed for RP's and that's Cloudsdale, I don't say chat RP is bad but I don't think RP's are meant to be there

Something else to add to this, you can turn OFF the sound effects... Grendo obviously had no argument here...

The thing is yeah we were RP'ing but Grendo being Grendo decided to report us all for spam. RP is not spam there not even the same thing we were all in the chat everyone but Grendo was joining in on the RP there is nothing that says RP isnt allowed in the chatroom if it wasent it would be the rules so i think yeah it should be allowed in the chatroom

Though a fan of RP, it really should stay out of the chat rooms. Not just due to "leaving ponies out", but someponies probably just don't want to repeatedly see the same few ponies replaying the same drama again and again while having a normal discussion.

 

I'm not sure how the chat works exactly, and it does seem to be taking some strain as of late, but a separate room just for RPing might not be a bad idea. Granted there's enough ponies RPing to make it necessary.
