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.

Can’t tell if people needed to get off for the night….or were truly bad Rpers.

If you’re an OC in a fandom, hand pick a few special abilities. There’s a reason none of the canon characters have all of them: it’s overpowered and annoying to read. Think whether this ability is reasonable - if you have to reason it in more than one sentence, or change canon for it, the answer is no.
E.g. No, you cannot have another family’s family gift, and you cannot change it so much for your muse to be able to do anything.

Just because my character is average at something does not mean she bungles the most basic aspects of it.

I just started indie rping and have spent a lot reading people’s indie OCs. I’ve really grown to hate it how much people of all genders spend 90% of their replies describing the outlook of their character. For some reason, the characters also always ‘hate themselves’ or ‘are super shy and insecure’ and I just-…

None of these are even AU’s! The character background always changes to mostly accommodate the other RP’er(s) (and their chars naturally) involved.

Really now? That’s just low. I’m still rather down from that.

It’s completely natural for characters to have enemies and rivals. In fact, conflict is important for OCs.
But sometimes muns take this to a completely inappropriate level where their character is mean-spirited and hateful with zero provocation.
I’ve had this experience recently. Instead of the mun explaining why their OC hated mine so deeply and with no reason, they implied that my character deserved the constant in-character abuse because of their personality. (All while the mun goes out of their way to push their nose in my character’s business just so they can belittle and insult them. Even when the situation is completely unrelated to them.)

I’m not going to feel sorry for you when you come out with this and I shut you down in front of everyone. Did you really not think it was important to ask me about something that would affect my character as much as a pet?
