    I thought I was used to post-by-post roleplay, but I took 30 whole minutes to realize, "Oh I actually have to have to choose a topic to post in." See, I'm used to dorky things like Hivetale and Flarping (which are both gone now, cri every temmie) where it's like your character own a social media account, post whatever, especially if it's small and stupid! Those things normally get the best responses! However, I feel like if I post the small, funny, quirky things Meulin would post on here... I wouldn't get much traction. This seems like a more paragraph, lengthy, plot driven rp site. Its kind of terrifying! I also doubt there are any Homestuck account here. My poor baby is all alone with thought-out OCs and fantasy based characters! What do when don't know what do?

    There is no shame in it taking you a little while to get used to a new format. Goodness knows I have been in that same position before. We are a little bit different here than a post by post platform.

    I would not worry so much about your post length. We have a wide range of posting styles on this site. As for myself, depending on the role-play I am I post anywhere from a paragraph to a novella worth of words. <.< We do not have a purely Homestuck community here but that does not mean people do not know what it is or do not want to role play in the verse.

    I can totally tell you what do, you did exactly it. Get an introduction posted so we can get to know you and we can help you out if you need it.

    You might want to look at the ROLE PLAY REQUESTS AND INTEREST CHECKS section if you haven't already and browse through some of them or post up your own thread. Don’t forget to check out our in browser CHAT .

    If you have any other questions all of the staff is here and able to answer them. I look forward to seeing you around the site and to what role plays you get up to.

    Cheers,
    <3 Nova

    Oh I noticed, do you use multiple characters on the same account on here? I'm used to having one account per character. I should probably start jotting down stuff and making Meu in the character maker. On top of using the account itself as more of an OOC thingy.

    Hey! Welcome to the site! To answer your question: yes you can have multiple characters on the same account. Using pemade characters or creating character profiles is purely optional. I normally just make up characters on the fly for each individual RP I do, but if you wanted to create a catalog of your characters you can do that, too.

    To add on to Panda's answer your user account is the umbrella that all of your actions fall under. We have people who are very active in OOC chatter and interactions, and we have others who post very little outside of role-play posts.

    We do allow character accounts, however, we do require that you use your birthday for creating the account rather than the characters. That being said I personally find it easier to create a character showcase profile for each of your characters you would use under a single main account.

    We are mostly a one on one role play style community, however, it seems lately that we have had an influx of group and open role plays.

    Hopefully all of this is helpful and not overwhelming. @.@

    I have another small problem, I made the picture small in my signature, but it decides to be huge. This might be annoying for others so is there a way for it not to be blown up? Or it might just be on my end and it hasn't updated for me.

    Did you resize via a photo editing program or did you just do it in the signature editing text box?

    Hi friend. Welcome and stuff. I'm relatively new here too. I've learned there's alot of cool cats here though that will be cool with however, and whatever you'd like to post.

    If you have any questions on where to begin, (because sometimes people are a little shy to getting started), let me, or one of the staffy staffs know.

    As for roleplays, I know homestuck is a web comic, and I know people cosplay the characters alot. I'd love to hear about it a bit in a conversation.

    As for your picture, I'd you send it to me in a conversation, I can resize it for you, and send it back!

    Wow I'm a smart person with a brain. I never even thought about using an external tool/site to resize it. (also pardon my amount of gifs, my main character speaks gifanese and loves using then, so now I'm in the habit)

    Best thing to do is still the forms till you find something that interests you and start writing. Best thing to do is learn on the fly!
