Hours and hours and hours I put into the mere hope of getting into a PbP game! What a waste of my time! How can anyone stand for such a crummy format of recruitment? Begging for a spot while facing the cruel and public criticisms of other potential players trying to convince the GM of your concept's unworthiness? How awful! Being strung along for weeks, all for naught!
Roleplaying should be easy and fun. Not this. Never this.
Ayep. The system sucks. It's broken...but not beyond measure.
Too many players are getting burned by GMs who are unprepared for the burden/joy of running PbP. It can be hard...unless you are prepared.
I've written this to help get at the root of the problem:
We need to train better players and that starts with training better GMs...at least ones that are prepared.
No, this won't solve the problems of the past, but maybe...just maybe...the PbP community could be better.
