Ok, so this is of course an OOC post.
I’m not very fond of doing such interactions but I feel the need to.
First: I know that both IC and OOC, the whole invasion has been cutting the cluster in two, strongly.
And that’s fine, that’s what RP is all about after all: creating stories with multiple characters and point of view.
And with the invasion, a lot of new players have tried to start RP-ing, and that’s absolutely amazing, for me it’s maybe one of the greatest achievement of the whole triglavian story.
What sadden me is that the IGS have not been able to be open to them.
I’m not pointing fingers, I’m the first to fall into the “heated argument” ^^ so believe me when I say I do not wish to be taken as a “oh, booo, XXX is mean”. It’s not the point of this post.
What I want to say is that the roleplay part of eve is still a part of eve: a game.
Made for having fun
even if “fun” sometimes use anger, arguments, tragedy, etc
If you feel like the post of someone could be improved, maybe ask them OOC-ly first, ask if they are new, if it was intended.
For example, in most of my works, Umbre write that the SOE are evil, dangerous or responsible of every bad thing happening in New eden ^^
Even if it need to stretch reality and facts, but because it’s the form that his paranoia take.
And if someone point that to me IC-ly, I’m gonna go full conspiracy theory and not make much sense, but because it’s part of my roleplay.
but if someone point it OOC-ly we can talk about it in a much more calm manner and very possible that it’s gonna help me improve my roleplay, because incoherence will be pointed, etc.
As usual I probably explain too badly and too much to get my point across, so just remember this:
be kind to newcomers on the RP community, help them get into this part of EvE, share your knowledge, ideas, tricks and methods.
And If it’s not something that your character would do (which I understand ^^ ), at least do it OOC-ly.
Remember that there is real people behind those characters, the IGS can only gain from having more ppl writing stuff, so don’t break their first work(s) just because they are not written well, we all start somewhere…
