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.
I’m not even kidding. I’m waiting for a reply to a fanmail rp but instead I get someone saying my muse just wakes tied to a chair. I didn’t reblog any kidnapping meme and they didn’t tell me about this before.

I mean. Not even the smut rp blogs me and my friends run do  this. It is even creepier when I noticed they were trying to get their 18+ muse into the pants of a character from Dangan Ronpa. Which is a series about teenagers.

I shall call myself Bear, and this is the first story you’ll see from me, but it probably won’t be the last story that you see from me.[[MORE]]
I was once part of a science fiction RP forum (the fandom is close-knit enough that I won’t mention it) and an administrator there along with my friend “Lily”, the head admin “Deejay”, and a few other mods “Lulu” and “Franny”.
Deejay went on a hiatus, and we let him. We had four-month long hiatus limits before you had to at least update us on the situation, or we wouldn’t extend it. All things considered, we were quite generous compared to most forums and roleplays that I had seen.[[MORE]]
Four months went by, and Deejay hadn’t updated us. We let things slide, but several more months pass and we’d still heard no word from Deejay. By this point, we were debating whether to kick him from his admin position and the site (with the stipulation that he’d be welcome back if he wanted to rejoin, since we had no reason to ban him permanently).
Lily, Lulu, and I all agreed to kick him off, but Franny was vehemently opposed, saying that Deejay was the head admin and had created the site and that he should stay because of that. But since it was three-to-one, we kicked Deejay off.
Franny was furious as a result, and she left the site not long after that. I stumbled across her Deviantart page and saw that she had made a huge, angry rant in her Journal that we were horrible people for kicking the head admin off of a site that he had created, and that we were a terrible RP group for doing that.
Here’s the real kicker that made me want to hit my head: Lily, Lulu, and I are still in contact with Deejay. We have a Skype chatroom with the former members of that site that wanted to keep in touch, and the four of us are there with several others. Franny isn’t as she parted with us in such bad terms.
We spoke to Deejay, asking him if he was angry that we booted him off, and guess what?
He wasn’t upset.
In fact, he told us he was surprised we waited that long and that if it had been him, he would have kicked himself off.
So essentially, Franny is trying to make a huge deal out of absolutely nothing. Wow.

I shall call myself Bear, and this is the first story you’ll see from me, but it probably won’t be the last story that you see from me.

Character B mentioned to Character C that Character A’s actions were in some way imperfect and suddenly Character A never acted that way in the first place. The mun may be talking ooc about them doing something differently, or the muse ic to another character. Things might just change on their about page with no post explaining it.
Further note: deleting a self-para from ages ago, not telling anybody except perhaps closest ooc friends about the change, and then turning it around so that my character looks whiny, irrational, spreading falsehoods and altogether out-of-character does not make me want to plot with you in the future. Especially if this is about the 20th time this sort of thing has happened.

The fact that you and your character are not the same person does not absolve you of bad writing. [[MORE]] I don’t care if your character is totally crazy with the schizos, if you can’t be bothered to actually research a mental illness, don’t fucking play it. This for physical disabilities as well, and when you get called out for your shitty writing, don’t pretend that you magically came up with these characters without any abelism influencing your thoughts. 
And yeah, maybe you do like playing bad guys— but if every single one of your characters is a violent misogynist, or a violent racist, or a violent homophobe, maybe you should consider why you like making those characters so much. If all you roleplay is rape, don’t cry when you get bitched out for fetishizing rape.
You may not be your muse, but you are the one who writes them. Your actions do not exist in a vacuum.

The fact that you and your character are not the same person does not absolve you of bad writing.

I am very tired of seeing this shit all the time … yes, your character will be doing things a certain way, but ultimately YOU are the one behind that keyboard, children. Whatever they do comes from your own brain; please stop using the excuse of a “muse” to cover up for your own bad behavior.

I’m honestly annoyed and angry that this thing happens because some people just blatantly ignored what all RPers have agreed on, then they went and caused problems that shouldn’t even have happened in the first place.
This is gonna’ be a long story because this issue is just the root.
[[MORE]]
So, my fandom is a well - known old fandoms and its RP community in Tumblr has been flourishing rapidly in the last 2 years. But growth, as we all know, doesn’t always bring good things. Then again as mentioned above, the bad stuffs don’t necessarily have to happen. But it did. It infuriates me.
The issue started around early this year when one of my fellow RPer who had sadistic, cruel sentient zombie/vampire OCs have the OCs forcefully turned another OC (belongs to my other friend) into a zombie/vampire and supposedly molested the OC. In a consensual RP thread. Then another OC owned by the same mun who owns the zombie/vampire OCs blamed a rape victim OC owned by the mun of zombie/vampire victim OC and used slurs. Again, in a consensual RP thread.
Now the identical point of both stories is that both happened in consensual. RP. threads. With read mores littering the posts and the nsfw tag on top.
Of course this thing is completely normal, I mean everyone knows it’s just an RP about asshole muses being assholes whereas the muns who are RPing them either freaked the freak out because their muses got out of control but decided to keep going or they already planned this all out for the sake of interaction and mutual character development. It happens every time in RPing, right? Besides, everyone knows that the muses aren’t the muns, right?
Yeah, nope.
Apparently there are people who didn’t see it as that. Some time after the RPs are finished, they just straight up called my friend, especially who RPed as the mean OCs, as a rapist, rape apologist, transphobic, claiming that she deliberately triggered them, and other stuffs. Just because the mun’s OCs behave that way and she’s not gonna’ change it just because they don’t like it.
Not only that but they also attacked those who interact regularly with her, and when they don’t comply with their wish to stop interacting with said mun, they throw tantrums. Another thing that I really hate is that they have random anons backing them up and sending hate messages to those who interact with her.
Including my friend (mun of victim OCs) and she’s already already suffering from depression. personality disorder, and she’s also suicidal. To make it worse, her personality disorder made her fixate on things thus she can’t ever ignore it every time she got called out by her attackers and the constant hate sent on her way is making her situation even worse. Especially when they ignorantly said that trans people became trans by choice. It really infuriated her. The attack peaked when one of the attackers posted a fake suicide post.
I REPEAT.
A FAKE SUICIDE POST. 
THAT IS LIKE THE GREATEST INSULT TO PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY SUICIDAL LIKE THEIR CONDITION IS MADE AS A JOKE TO THEM.
WHAT THE HELL.
Ridiculous Anons who didn’t know the truth just went and attacked her relentlessly about it, saying that she drove the attacker to commit suicide. That really took a toll on her emotional health. For God’s sake, she even attempted suicide recently and I can’t stop crying when I found out about it. She’s safe now but it’s obvious he’s already scarred from all of it and became paranoid, that she’s scared of reaching out to people and she at times thinks that everyone hates her.
To top it off, one of the attackers even set up a list of people in the fandom who should be avoided. Why, just because they don’t like them and their works. Guess who are on the list? The mun of mean OCs, my friend who got continuously attacked, some popular fandom artists even, and surprise, surprise, other RPers who don’t agree with them.
As if the list is not enough, now they set up a blog with the list on it and people can just suggest other names to them. When told that the people aren’t even doing anything wrong and by attacking them, especially the ones who suffer from depression is just making the situation worse for them, do you know what they say?
"Good. It’ll be their lesson."
I don’t know whether to laugh or scream at their absolute idiocy.
This problem still continues until now since they’re a bunch of stubborn people who keeps justifying themselves despite them doing all sorts of wrong things who can’t be stopped no matter what people say. It upsets me that this issue tainted our once fun - filled, open - minded, and supportive community. I fully regret that all of this even happening in the first fandom that introduced me to Tumblr’s RP community.
But you know, if nothing can stop them, let them do what they want. Then hopefully someday, let it be their downfall.

I’m honestly annoyed and angry that this thing happens because some people just blatantly ignored what all RPers have agreed on, then they went and caused problems that shouldn’t even have happened in the first place.

This is gonna’ be a long story because this issue is just the root.

*sighs*Really. I have it in the rules of my rp characters that I don’t follow back on personal blogs. Yet so many seem to get upset when I don’t follow them back and will message me about it before unfollowing me.
