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.

This is a story about how you should listen to others when they warn you about dangerous actions; Whether it be jumping into a vat of acid, walking into rabid bear territory… Or engaging terrible RPers with terrible attitudes.

For hidden identites’ sake, the crazy in question will be B, my best friend will be T, and my other buddy will be J. For protected identity of the characters, a certain unplayed character will be Pizza, my characters will be Bel, Swiss, and Cheddar, (can you feel the theme naming?) and her character will be Ursula (after a witch with the same name)

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.

what a mess

I am in a roleplay group for a 42 year old show. To hide the characters’s identities, I’ve changed their names to Beetle Bailey characters. (Both are military series, so…)

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?

My patience with the rp I’m in is wearing thin. Most of the time I love it, I love the muses I have and I love the plots and interactions they have with other characters. However, the group is large and in a large group it seems near-on impossible to avoid some OOC drama of some sort, no matter how much it is stipulated in the rules that it is banned.
