Welcome to /RP/!

Hello there and welcome to the roleplaying board! Here, there be monsters and heroes, demons and heroines, love, adventure, and, of course, ponies of all manner and kind! But before you sink yourself into the world of imagination, please take the time to read a little bit about how the board works and how to join in on the fun!

Table of Contents!

JOINING


Joining this community seems like a daunting task but it's actually pretty simple! It only seems difficult because our structure is very different from that of other boards, but in just a few days you'll fit right in!

Say hello!
The first thing you want to do is to say hello! There are a lot of people here who would love to help you, give you tips and introduce you to the community, structure and principles at large! The best ways to do so is to either pop in and say hello in the OOC thread, which can be found in the /OOC/ board, pop in the Introductory thread, or to just make your own thread in /OOC/ and say hello! You will find that many, many users here are craving for new posters, and they will gladly help you!

Find some friends!
While you could always just jump in anywhere, we all know the feeling at first: They're in the Ponyville inn, maybe they're in a corner and they don't want to be bothered? Maybe the store those two people are in is closed and I can't really join? The list goes on! We feel really uncomfortable both because of unfamiliarity, and because the place is filled with people you don't know. In the end, roleplaying is like playing anything else, and while roleplaying with new people is nice, it would be easier if you start off with a friend or two! You can meet loads of people in our chatrooms on Steam and IRC, just ask around in the OOC thread! But your best bet would be to just hang around in a thread and make some friends, or ask people about a new thread, see if they're interested, make it, and watch as they join in!

Learn about the Canons!
In the end of the day, a great deal of our threads are tied to Canons, and without really knowing anything about a Canon, it makes it doubly harder to join it! You don't really understand, hey, was that Gohan riding an ethereal dragon?! Apparently, Equestria is now post-apocalyptic? Where is "Hoofstown"? - there are a lot of questions that come to mind, and most can be solved by learning a bit more about what the major Canons, and really every Canon you'd like to join, is about!

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

RULES


As always, and across all boards, please refer to the ponychan global rules for general guidelines as to how to behave. As a roleplaying board, however, we have a few extras to attend to.

Be Polite and Fair!
Whilst roleplaying is ultimately for fun, remember you're having fun with other people. You're free to do as you will, these are your fantasy worlds after all, but only as long as you're within the site rules and also with an acceptable attitude. If your kind of fun is ruining fun for others, perhaps you should think twice before posting here. Roleplaying is a collaborative effort, so please try your best to work with each other, not against one another!

Respect the OP (original poster)!
The OP of a roleplaying thread ultimately has control over what goes in and out of the thread. It's up to the OP (or those they accept to help them) to handle situations that pop up, such as accepting characters into the thread or telling people to leave should their behaviour or content break away from what they want of the roleplay itself. If the Original Poster asks you to do something, please respect their decision. That said, OP's, please try to be polite in your requests!

Try your best to use the available list of tags!
Whilst it's not necessary to tag everything about your thread, having a general idea of what's going on in your roleplay is a great way to get interested people involved, as well as keeping things relevant and on-track. It's an invaluable tool to help OP's keep their threads organised. To use these, simply check the boxes with the tags related to your roleplay. It helps to keep threads organised and let players find the roleplays they like! You can search for threads marked with a particular tag using the "Search /rp/ threads" link in the top right, inputting the tag (e.g. #Lighthearted).

What kind of roleplay can we have here?
Almost anything, within the site rules. Humans, Ponies, Aliens, wherever your mind wanders as long as it doesn't break boundaries. The most popular roleplay here will, of course, be Friendship Is Magic based, but if you have an idea for some strange sci-fi based roleplay that isn't to do with ponies, feel free to gather your friends up and give it a shot! Pony roleplay is encouraged, of course.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

IF YOU HAVE AN ISSUE


If a thread OP is taking too much heat, or cannot handle a situation, or if a problem is arising that users here feel should get moderator attention, please do not hesitate to report the necessary posts, and we'll do what we can to help.
That said, don't assume you only have to send reports for problems. Issues such as editing posts or updating things can also be reported to us, and we can help with those too. Think of the report button less of a 'panic button' and more of a 'I'd like a little help here' message.
If anyone has any further ideas on how to improve the board/site, please bring them up in /meta/.

how far into the mature category is permitted? obviously nothing explicit but other than that?

The rules pretty much say it. Don't post too much in detail about the floppy/hard bits, the wet bits, and how sticky things are.

Also when it comes to blood and gore. Then make too detailed about how a pony's blood and gore is all over place the. Don't make it 3edgy5me.

I'm gonna go back to getting drunk on New Years.

Yeah, what he said
No dirty stuff, sex, and other things like that... I believe that implied sex is alright, but that's just what I think.
And no detailed murder and gore, no guts spilling out and what not, that and no torture.
I think that's everything.

Hello!

Would everyone here be willing to take a short essay. It's to find out more about personal opinions in rp and other topics like that. I'll be checking responses all throughout the week so feel free to take it whenever you're bored or have time to. Thank you.

Lemme start by saying I'm not sure what this site's policy on adult RPs is. I didn't see anything in the rules about it. I'll be posting two links here, one which contains less information, but is appropriate for minors, and the other that has much more info, but is SLIGHTLY NSFW. If this is against the rules, I don't mind the thread being deleted.

https://www.sofurry.com/forum/view/thread?id=35128 is for folks over 18, because it's slightly NSFW (mentions fetishes)

meanwhile http://www.sofurry.com/forum/view/thread?id=33292 is devoid of that and minor-friendly.

both of these links contain my skype contact info, and I'd love to hear from you!

And now back to our regular programme!
Humans are not real. If you saw any humans, or if any humans have told you they saw any humans, or if you believe to be human yourself, please direct your hooves to your nearest certified retrophrenologist to have your little "hyooman" issue fixed. It's only 5 bits and lasts a lifetime! Minor side effects may occur like migraine, skull fracture, sudden blackouts, profuse gum bleeding, and schizophrenia.

Crescent Rook was a shy and timid pegasus, who had never really gotten anywhere in life. He had a red mane with a blue streak going through it, and glowing orange fur. He didn't have a place to stay after his house being destroyed, and he didn't quite know what to do (Sorry about posting this here, just wanted to put my backstory here.)
