Hey there guys! I'm your new Co-Admin [and maybe your new Admin]! I'm so happy about being able to administrate this wonderful RP. Crack RP was slowly dying and I had to do something so I asked our lovely Hanabi-M00fin on what we should do with the RP. She kindly suggested that we keep dear Jasdero as our Admin and make me a Co-Admin.
As for now, [for starters,] what I'm gonna do is advertise the RP's activeness once again and check out the member's activity. I'll be sending in a note to those who've been inactive asking them if they would like to continue being part of Crack RP.
Also, I`d like you guys to note us your Timezones with the title Timezone. With that, we can determine each others time online and we can schedule a date so that we can all gather in the chatroom and role-play. I've also separated the Members List because it might take up space.
That's all for now. Tune in for more updates on: THE CRACK RP.
Oh! Before anything else, if anyone would like to be a Co-Admin with me, feel free to send in a note. In it, your timezones should be present and give me at least three reasons on why you think you would be commendable for the position of Co-Admin. Yes. That's it.
a) Which character would you like, and what series are they from?:
b) Why would you like to role-play as this character?:
c) How does your character differ from the origanal?:
d) d) Show me (please write a monologue (it should be a paragraph, meaning 4 or 5 lines at least), any subject will be accepted):
Note: Do take a look at the Monologue Guidelines below.
e) How often do you think you could check your comments?:
f) Do you agree with the rules? (Yes/No):
g) Do you have any ideas concerning the character you wish to role-play as?:
a) What is the name of your OC?
b) What's your OC's personality?
c) Put in his/her physical details.
d) Do you really think you can role-play your OC?
e) Show me (please write a monologue (it should be a paragraph, meaning 4 or 5 lines at least), any subject will be accepted):
A note about the monologue: Please read the Monologue Guidelines below.
f) How many times a week you think you could check your comments?:
g) Do you agree with the rules? (Yes/No):
Please avoid using the fanfiction type monologue as much as possible. Though Im not saying it is prohibited, Id approve of your monologue much more if you would minimize the sentences and more of the talking. An example of the fanfiction style is this one:
The girl with brown hair sighed. It had been a long time since she saw her brother and she did not want a repeat of what happened to both of them two years ago. She sighed again as they viewed the airplane descending. In a few minutes, she and her brother would be reunited again and she would have to fake a lot of smiles again.
If you need a topic for the monologue, do indicate it in the note in the monologue part. We will be waiting for a week and will reserve that character (if ever we accept the rest your application excluding the monologue part) for you. If you do not submit the monologue within that period of time, the character will be up for application. Feel free to apply for him or her again if thats the case.
I did say avoid the fanfiction style but do remember that I said as much as possible. Im not entirely discouraging it. I just dont like to see the monologue consisting mostly of the fanfiction style. Put more of the character talking about something or to someone. Heres an example:
The girl with brown hair sighed. It had been a long time since she saw her brother and she did not want a repeat of what happened to both of them two years ago. Id rather die than stay here and embarrass myself. Im merely wasting my and my brothers time here. Hed be, OH! HEY! I MISSED YOU! when my parents are here and be all, Hahaha! I still havent forgotten what youve done two years ago, sucker! when were alone. Gah! I wish I could just disappear. Says the girl as she and he family watches the airplane descending.
Another example would be this one:
*sigh*Id rather die than stay here and embarrass myself. Im merely wasting my and my brothers time here. Hed be, OH! HEY! I MISSED YOU! when my parents are here and be all, Hahaha! I still havent forgotten what youve done two years ago, sucker! when were alone. Gah! I wish I could just disappear. *sulks because of the thought of her brother pointing and laughing at her*
I know Im not good so dont comment about the story. Moving on, Id prefer if you sent something like that. As you can see, it has more words than the action and it shows more of the characters personality. Plus, its actually 4-5 lines, no? This is a role-play and according to my research, most of the characters talk in role-plays so be good boy/girl and do what you are told to do. *pets you*
Once again, reduce the usage of fanfiction and talk some more please.
The only time Im allowing the usage of the fanfiction style without talking in a monologue is when the character youre applying for is the silent type. Other than that, dont use it that much.
