I appreciate the guide, one-liners and bad grammar make me want to quit some roleplays.

Love the guide. :) I have no idea if this was previous discussed (I sort of skipped to the end after page 2), but you should mention things like character forms and RPs with limited spots.

Most of the time (in my experience), an RP that had multiple spots to fill, but limited it to say ten spots needed because the plot required only ten characters, these spots were filled on a first-come-first-serve basis. If you own an RP, try and make it clear if you want to get these spots filled quickly, or if you might be picky and ask for things like writing styles or samples or something like that. :/ I know it goes agains the "all are equal" value, but I have seen it, so I figured I should bring it up.

Also, where does this site stand on play-bys (also known as character pictures)? Of course, these PBs should be properly credited and all, but what if you find them on Google. xD Who knows where Google gets 'em?

May I add that it is really annoying when people use texting abbriviations on their RP? SERIOUSLY!! EX.
Player A: The Dark Warriors are driving me to the point of death!
 
Player B: ikr? brb while I go kill those soldiers.
NONONONONONO!!!!! PLEASE AVOID TEXTING ABBREVIATIONS ON THE ACTUAL ROLEPLAY!

It's short for dedicated. In a roleplay, it means the person who started the RP wants the RPers to be committed to it.

This may just be me, but one thing:
 
If you have a third character who your character is conversing with, please break up the conversation into parts, so that there isn't a page worth of conversation for the other character to have to build on even though they weren't a part of it.
 
Also (yes, I know this is more than one thing): if you're doing a fan fiction roleplay, please try to avoid messing with plot lines. Ex: if there's a roleplay for Lord of the Rings, do not make your character from District Twelve, and if roleplay is for The Hunger Games, don't have the characters practice wizardry in their spare time. It makes the roleplay somewhat nonsensical.
