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.
To clarify, this is also someone who has made my experience in a certain fandom one of the shittiest RP experiences ever. She is unable to take jokes or criticism, and if you so much as jokingly reply to her starter on omegle with “*throws water at*” she will use that to get sympathy. I swear she has a notebook of interactions (and IP addresses) on top of submitting every little thing she goes through on chatzy and omegle to here OUT OF CONTEXT.
She will rant and rave about trigger warnings, but has only recently begun putting triggers on her own posts (after horrifically triggering at least two people) but will claim “I ALWAYS put triggers! Why can’t people do the same for me?” 
If you suggest she play any character other than the one she plays now, this will be the immediate response: “I thought this was a safe place. But apparently not. Goodbye, friends in this room, hopefully I’ll meet you somewhere else.” 
All in all, this RPer gets on every last one of my nerves.

It was over the same subject too-an immortal male loving a mortal female.

I’ve had one too many flashbacks of more horrid moments in my life because some people can’t simply type “trigger warning: X”

[[MORE]]Maybe it’s because those two things aren’t really comparable, and doing so is actually kind of offensive since homophobes often claim that if gay people are allowed to have relationships/respect, the same thing would have to be given to incestuous people? Or that incest is very triggering for many people, since more often than not, it involves rape and abusive relationships?
And no, them being cats doesn’t really excuse it. First of all, there’s a ton of open male characters in the group. Animals know how to avoid fucking up the gene pool. I’m pretty sure that in a realistic setting, your cat would rather go for a strong, not-closely-related male than her practically teenage brother. These characters are immensely anthropomorphized, too. If we can easily put them in human bodies under moderately changed circumstances due to their personality and morals, that makes it fucked up.

Not really much of a story to add to this. I’m in a roleplay with gray morality, there are no good guys or bad guys since in the canon universe there are no good or bad characters, much like real people.
Enter new guy who creates a character who declares wars, assaults people, tortures people, cuts medication with poison … and why? Because he’s character is ‘just evil’. There’s no character driven motivation for any of this, they don’t even really enjoy doing any of it they’re just evil. I mean we have characters that do these things, humans and aliens alike, but they actually have a reason and motivation for everything they do.
It might be fun to rp anyway except all the mun EVER talks about is how unique and creative he is for his generic, over-the-top baddie. It’s an incredible turn off rp-wise. If when I try to plot with you all I get is post after post about how awesome you are for creating our fandom’s first real defined villain I won’t want to plot with you. There’s probably a reason why no one’s made a character like that before you, don’t you think?

This isn’t a ‘complaining about how RPers spend their free time’, issue, it’s a communication issue. I get that reblogs and dicking around on Tumblr takes less mental energy and just because you’re able to do that, doesn’t mean you’re up to replying. But if you’re at the point where it’s been literally half a year and you’ve only replied to a thread *once*, regardless of your amounts of free time at different points of that half year, when your partner has tried to talk to you about how to make the thread easier to reply to and you always insist that it’s fine and you’ll be getting around to it one of these days…
There’s a point where it’s time to admit that you have a problem with the thread for whatever reason, and agree on a good way to DROP it instead of keeping the other person hanging. If, in over half a year, you’ve found time for all sorts of random shit but can’t manage more than one reply to a thread in that time, it’s insulting to keep insisting you’ll get to it.
Tl;dr: Be self-aware enough to recognize when you’ve been a flaky partner, and STOP being that flaky partner. It’s easier to deal with someone officially dropping a thread than with someone who keeps pretending it’s still alive.

One day a lot of these RPers started getting spam with anon messages ranging from confusing to full blown harassment. Everyone who got them was very confused, including me.[[MORE]]
Now I roleplay a child whom I’ll call U. One of my friends was upset the character was getting harassed, however they had no RP account on DA yet so they sent me an anon giving U an ice cream cone. My muse took it glad to have a bit of a distraction from the harassment. Then one of the anons who had been harassing us turned the ice cream into another muse’s cum (let’s call this muse S).
Again, they turned a 14-year-old’s ice cream into cum. Then they tried to claim that S was a pedophile and rapist because they turned U’s ice cream into cum. Now everyone at this point was pissed at the anon and everyone stopped replying with their characters. Some turned off anon while others used their stat counter to figure out the anon’s IPs.  
Or anons, as it turned out it was a trio of three. Someone (let’s call them Sailor) sent an ask telling me that she might of known who they were. The anons where her “friends” (she stopped being friends with them after this) who hated the fact she loved the series. 
I then got an ask calling Sailor a bitch for “ratting them out” and more harassment. When I called them out for hiding behind anon and making rape jokes one of them made a new account and dared me to report them. I simply gave out the user’s IP address and every RP blocked the anons and the sock puppet accounts they tried to use against us. Eventually they gave up after they figured out we had their IP adresses.

[[MORE]]My character A arrives in a boarding house he’s planning to live in. A is greeted by character B, who is an inmate. They have a small talk, all things normal, when B starts falling asleep. Just like that. She just started getting sleepy in the middle of their talk and suddenly fell asleep on the floor. Her public profile didn’t mention any kinds of sleep disorder, so I was puzzled by this, so was A. A carefully carried her and laid her down on a couch nearby and went looking for another inmate who could help. The author would describe how sensuously angelic she looked while asleep, how her lips were almost irresistible and her cleveage very revealing. I had seem it coming when they told me OOC it was okay for my character to carry her to a bed and cop a feel, kiss her, amongst other stuff, so she could wake up in the middle of it.
They actually wanted my character to sexually harass her while she was unconscious.
I told them that my character wasn’t an assaulter. Then B suddenly woke up, talked to B with an obvious loss of interest and left the hall, “looking for something more interesting”.
I mean, it’s okay to ship characters (if both authors agree with it, which I didn’t), it’s okay to have them “do” it (if it’s on an appropriate thread, which it wasn’t), but, seriously? Even if you want your character to have some casual sex with someone they just met… Go and develop it, let the chemistry hit. Don’t just try to make a “quicker” way, or even worse, WILLINGLY induce your character on being harassed by another like it’s something so trivial. It’s utterly offensive.
