Anonymous said:  Help, please! My RP that's been around for almost a year is starting to really flounder and die. I don't want it to die, and I would love to re-vamp it but that would mean losing characters and character developments the loyal ones have spent months on. I can't do that to them, let alone myself. What should I do? I really don't want my RP to die. :(

If your roleplay is beginning to die, then I suggest you make some promos and some promo graphics, or request an RPH do them for you, that really grab attention from the roleplaying community. Send out more shout requests. Ask for reviews to get the word out and see how you can improve. Ask the community for bio or fc requests, so you can cater to what they want, instead of thinking up what you want. Add more events to your rp if you think that you can find any that would work. I’ve had an RP die on me before and I know that it’s not a nice experience, love. x


A NEW RPG BASED ON THE 1989 CLASSIC FILM. OPENING SOON.
Welton Academy, Vermon, 1991.The best preparatory school in the United States where a secret club formed nearly fifty years ago is changing lives.They meet to be extraordinary, to find their own voice.Being in the club means being stirred up by things.
“I went to the woodsbecause I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”
Literature is and always will be the core of the society, but there are rumors that the meetings are not merely poetry by the campfire anymore. Some say the Captain has been given the secret duty of corrupting as many people as possible, others believe it’s actually a secular drug-ring or perhaps a satanic cult. Only the Dead Poets know what really goes on in that cave, and it’s going to stay that way. Will you be part of the society? Carpe Diem.

Class dismissed.


i swear i love you 

Go check out this new OC rp, it’s got one of the most interesting plots I’ve seen yet!


Underneath the cut is a full review for tabula-rasa-rp. This is all my opinion and it’s up to you whether you listen to me, agree with me, or take my advice, but I don’t mean any offence. Also, this would have been up earlier, but the stupid laptop crashed again, I apologise, I really need to change this old thing.

First impressions

Your URL
As someone who, before your roleplay, didn’t know what ‘tabula rasa’ (blank slate?) meant, the url was really confusing for me because I wasn’t sure if this was a place, or what, but now that I do understand what it is, I can understand it, and I think that it’s clever. Hyphenated urls are a peev of mine, so the fact that you have two in yours doesn’t do you many favours, but, still, I think that it’s an interesting url.
Your manners (when you request and on your page)
Wow! You were lovely when you requested this review and you even sent me a thank you message because, not so secretly, even us helpers want to feel valued from time to time. You’re also very helpful on your page, providing detailed and enthusiastic responses to questions rather than simply answering with one liners.

Appearance

Your theme
I haven’t seen this theme used very often which is a shame because I really like it. You’ve got two 100% sidebars, which you’ve made effective use of by putting information on the two without overloading the page. The posts are framed by the sidebars and I really like the curved bubble to the questions, I think that that’s interesting.
Your colour scheme
I think that your colour scheme is nice, which surprised me because at first I didn’t like it, but after examining it for a while, I think it grew on me? You’ve got light shades and dark text so that it’s easy on the eyes, and all links and bolded information provide a splash of colour on the page so it’s not too drowned out of colour. I’m not sure if the orange is a bit too bright, but that could just be me.
Your navigation and links
Your navigation has large, bright links that stand out and are extremely noticeable and easy to read - honestly, there’s barely anything worse than having to squint to read something on an rp’s page - and you’ve included lots of links on the navigation page itself.
Your graphics (sidebar, promo and bio)
I think that your sidebar pictures are both really pretty and I can already kind of imagine what Northridge is like. Your bio graphics are also beautiful and I feel like you chose images that actually suit the personality of the characters, if you know what I mean? Like, Myra Cross/Lucy Hale. She’s brave, so she’s probably bold and confident, and there you have Lucy looking directly at the camera, totally comfortable with staring you down and making you back off. I don’t know if that’s just me either, or if you meant for it to be like that, but I think you should do more of that, it’s really clever if you meant it. And if I’m not just delusional.

Substance

Your sidebar plot
Defining what ‘tabula rasa’ actually means is probably a really good idea, and the fact that you used a dictionary definition makes your roleplay look much more professional. Also, it’s really good that you still included a plot because I would have assumed that this was an asylum or mental institution rp if I’d just seen the definition.
Your full plot (if you have one)
I think that this roleplay could either go horribly wrong or it could be brilliant. There are a lot of probation/rehabilitation roleplays around, but I think that yours is different. Whilst many would have simply set the program in an abandoned town without any residents living there already, you’ve chosen to have them there. Now, not only can you have conflict between the criminals, the like minded individuals, you can have conflict between the law abiding people of the town. I think that it’s going to go well, what with the attention it’s already recieved, so good luck!
Any additional pages you may have to explain your plot
The rules and the location page were interesting to read through and I think that they’ll help your roleplayers.

Characters

Your faceclaims
You’ve got a great selection of faces that I believe will be able to play a lot of different personalities, which is great, and you’ve used Colton Haynes, Misha Collins, Benedict Cumberbatch and Billie Piper so let me hug you, okay?
Your character biographies
Whilst I love your faceclaims, I’m not sure that I love your biographies because I don’t think that they’re the most original or the best that they could have been. I think that they’re quite stereotypical choices, and lots of them are quite close to characters that the faces can safely play, without taking some risks. 
For example: A spoiled rich kid, his daddy dotes on him and the rest of the school both love and fear him because he’s their king, and they kind of have to. He’s the star of his school’s sports team. He’s arrogant and he’s spoiled, but he knows how to charm when he wants to, and he always gets his own way. However, now they’re beginning to all turn their attention away from him because something bigger and badder has turned up. Now, did I describe Isaac Cross or did I describe Jackson Whittemore from Teen Wolf? Doesn’t really matter, Colton played them both, and they’re incredibly similar.
Diversity of your faceclaims and character backstories
As I said before, I think that your characters are a bit safe, but I love the faceclaims that you chose. Your characters are all different from each other in the roleplay, but I’m afraid that they’re very common character archetypes.

Other

Your rules
Your rules are extremely extensive and they’re explained very well and I think that your activity deadline is a good amount of time to allow inactivity. I can also see that you took care to make sure that these rules would work in the favour of your roleplayers.
Your application
I think that you should probably create a seperate page for your application because on the submit page, the text gets stretched. I like that you ask the roleplayer to describe the character themselves and then do the sample of their writing because I think then you get to see if they really do care about and understand this character or whether they’re just picking them willy-nilly. I just really wanted to say that… I’m a child.

To finish…

I think that this is a great roleplay and you’ve got a bright future, hopefully, so continue the way you are. My real suggestion would be to look at your bios again and see if you can improve them, but apart from that, everything looks good. x
