    151 KB Role-playing on /jp/ Anonymous ## Janitor 03/28/08(Fri)14:12 No.1129  
    For the past few weeks now, there have been various roleplaying sorts of threads on /jp/, where the OP will create a thread and present the users with choices for the direction that the story should take, like a visual novel or a choose your own adventure book. Up until now, I've left them alone because they always concerned themselves with /jp/-related topics (mostly Touhou), but there seems to be a pretty big backlash against them now, and the threads only attract trolls and naysayers.

    /jp/ is pretty young, and there really isn't a whole lot of policy in place yet, so I'm wondering how threads like this should be dealt with. On one hand, the threads concern themselves with /jp/ topics, but on the other hand, they are more games than they are quality discussion, and many users feel that the overabundance of these threads detracts from the quality of the board as a whole. Maybe these little games are better off on /b/ or /r9k/. If some mods could tell us how to handle these threads, that would be great. I'd also appreciate the input of /jp/'s other janitors. Thanks.

    On a related note, what's the general rule on RP threads? It's usually just 2 or 3 people involved, and there's usually some degree of bitching involved by the general populace. Oh, and they're also usually really unfunny, but that goes without saying.

    (not a jp janitor, but..) If it disrupts the majority of the board and they are complaining about it, i'd say delete the threads or keep it down to just one, instead of a whole ton.

    Roleplaying has always been shunned along with furries in /d/, so I have just been deleting them.

    Didn't really occur to me they may be allowed since I thought they were banned in /a/ as well.

    Yeah. I'm pretty sure that roleplaying don't fly over at /a/. The reason why I hesitate to delete these threads on /jp/ though is because /jp/ was created in part as a means of removing all the sorta-anime-related-but-not-quite-anime-discussion topics from /a/ and placing them on a new board. Personally, I'd like to start deleting dumb roleplaying threads, but they might still fit within the broad focus of /jp/, which is why I'm waiting for a mod to make things clear before I start getting rid of anything.

    haha oops, I didn't mean to say "don't". I'm not a hick, I swear. Ah, I'm tired.

    Personally, I would be willing to live with roleplay threads on /jp/ if they stopped spamming every thread asking "where is (author)?!" "(author) said he'd be here!" "when did (author) say he'd come?" That's what bothers me the most.

    Even if I personally hate the roleplaying threads, I can live with them. Much like I do the occasional threads full dollfie or kigurumi. It's the constant spam that I can't take.

    I'd strictly vote against them given the chance. They can go to gaia or myspace for that shit. Roleplay just doesn't at all seem like imageboard appropriate content to me.

    My sentiments on a problem like this is that it isn't a problem until the user base decides it is. If people are actually complaining now, it should be removed for the good of the imageboard, otherwise leave it.

    No roleplaying on boards that aren't /b/.
