Fuck Yeah, Bad RPer Polar Bear!
We've all been there – cringing over fellow roleplayers' terrible grammar and language use, and the general failtasticness of their behavior and characters. This is why we decided to create Bad RPer Polar Bear, to act as sort of a support group for all of our ranting needs.

Feel free to rant in the form of a meme, or submit a story about your experiences.

Please note: If you want your submission to be anonymous, you MUST log out before submitting it.

So I myself used to be a roleplaying nightmare once. It started when I was about ten, and I used an animation website called Flipnote Hatena which was intended for children who were 9-15. I made a few good friends despite being a terrible artist, and from them I learned how to roleplay. But in the beginning of my experience, all I did was force one of my characters to faint and disappear by some stupid strange magic.

There is a character in the show I watch who is potrayed as a gentle, but powerful character. He is often very cheerful, and pain is usually the last thing on his mind. However, many prople tend to make him a blubbering emotional mess for the sake of romance. Then, there are the people who make him crazy for the love of it.

There is a room I go to where there’s someone who roleplays that character. When I saw how that person porrray the character, I was shocked.
The person makes portrayed the character a crazed psychopath who is happy to kill people, along with having a twisted sense of humor. Since the room is a fantasy themed room, the roleplayer made the character a sorcerer who is not only evil, but he also practically godmods every time they went into the room.
The godmodding bothered me, so I told the roleplayer to tone down on their muse. They said they would try, but I haven’t seen their character get that needed improvement.
Yet.

When their muse is ‘so overwhelmed by the return of their senses,’ it doesn’t matter that they haven’t had food or water in a week.
We’re glad this one never got past the RPer’s initial pitch.

Coming up with plots ‘on your own’ should mean that you don’t need an admin (or a plot device) to help you.
It also implies you can do it with the character you play, not the one that was refused several times for being overpowered.  Giving a character more abilities does not immediately make them more interesting to interact with.

I lurked a mecha roleplay where you only got your major upgrades through admin permission and in situations where it would be logical to acquire them. One guy decided, after seeing someone else get their upgrade early, that he “wasn’t good enough” in fights and begged the admins to let him have his upgrade every time one was online. Bear in mind this same upgrade in the canon story of the show his mech is from was responsible for ending a war in a similar manner to the nuke dropped on Japan.
He ended up getting banned after the 5th day in a row of non-stop begging and trying to sneak his upgrade in while the admins were sleeping.

Especially if you really liked whatever series that character was from, originally.

This has probably got to be the most annoying thing when doing historical AU roleplays, or roleplays that take place in an era that’s way different from our current era.

Do you know of any blogs or websites where I can get RPing advice, especially for characters?

There’s a vast community of roleplay help and advice blogs on Tumblr. Try looking through the rpcw tag and I’m sure you’ll find some helpful blogs. writeworld and fuckyeahcharacterdevelopment are two of my personal favorites, too. Even though they’re more oriented toward writing advice rather than roleplaying advice per se, they have a bunch of useful character and writing-related resources that can be applied to roleplaying as well.

I do understand that everyone is allowed to thread with whoever they want, answer the questions/memes of whoever sends them in,etc.
But in my fandom there’s this one rper who I cannot stand. Every interaction I had with them rubbed me the wrong way, every character(they have one main blog with three characters and then like three more sideblogs of characters)sets my teeth on edge. I always adore seeing Ocs in the fandom…but not like this.
Yet sadly they are a popular Oc who rps with everyone I do(it’s not a very big fandom so no surprise there). I have blacklisted their urls to save myself some grief, but I still itch whenever I see the name come up while my page is still loading and my savior hasn’t kicked in.
