As someone who plays in a lot of pbp, I wouldn't mind a warning about the culprit from #4. Who are they?
Allow me to save Mr. Kilcoyne some trouble. I believe he is referring to me.
It is absolutely true that I have started numerous pbp games (14 apparently), many of which have died on the vine. I regret this very much, and I apologize for any damage I've done to the pbp community on these boards. It's a strong community and I don't wish to be someone who causes problems; I want to be a contributor. Every game I try and start I do with only the very best of intentions; I just want to take part in a game. However, I confess to some personal problems involving my mental health which are a barrier to success. Still, I keep trying just because I really want to succeed. If anyone views me as high risk, please feel free to ignore any recruiting attempts I may offer.
I'm really not a troll, though. I offer a couple of examples of longer-running pbp games I have GM'd. It's a small sample size compared to the number of failures, I admit, but maybe it at least demonstrates that I really do want to GM a successful game. I realize that I've burned many bridges, but I hope I'll still be welcome here.
