Shipper apps would be a much-loved change I think. It literally eliminates the pointless middle step to making a character. To add onto this, we should also change how shippers are written out. Like... right now it's written like you're just repeating the character's personality, so why not write something new instead? I did suggest way back that instead of that, we just explain what kind of ideal plots would work for our characters in that category specifically? I would definitely do that over having to be like:
*writes in bio "Sawyer is a playful jackass to all of his friends, but he still loves them with all his heart."*
*gets to shipper and writes "Sawyer is a playful jack-" *to myself* "Wait what? Literally, I already explained how he behaves in his bio."
There are so many things I wanna share with people about my babies that I can't do via threading, and this would be a welcome change to encourage us to use more developmental threads. Yes, I'm one of those people that enjoy reading out some kid's journal where he says he got rejected by a girl he likes today or seeing a thread with a playlist of a character's favorite songs. It adds characterization man. You know, the thing that RPers love the most? Or so thats the idea. :I
...I'm stealing that idea for my own site, I hope you don't mind. >w> It's too good to pass up.
I second this motion. There is nothing I want more than to see older characters. Because get this: no one stops aging at 25
I'm not even sure why that's happening, tbh. It kind of sucks though because I have, and make, a lot of female characters, and deep in the back of my mind I know no one's gonna care about them as much as they will my male characters. Sounds harsh, but for some reason, it's just a thing that happens???
