I keep hearing people say "Roleplay is dead" and to be frank I don't feel it is. I feel the issue isn't roleplay but rather the respect for roleplay. When you roleplay people don't accept it. People try to roleplay and then don't recieve it back.

The big roleplay killer is motivation. I tried to roleplay a situation and 2 out of all the cops recipicated. We had a fun roleplay. It was good. I was later disapointed to hear from another cop that what I did "wasn't" roleplay. It was apparently a waste of time.

I feel like people try to roleplay and rather then joining in some players try and avoid recipicating. Then the players who do try to roleplay get disheartend. Just because it's not your way of roleplaying doesn't make it any less valid. If we could just respect each others roleplay situations and try to contribute then there wouldn't be any roleplay issues. I mean people constently say they wan't roleplay. It's not a hard ask to say "If you see someone roleplaying try and reflect roleplay back".

I know everyone here can be creative.
Good luck.

Agree with you however some aspects of roleplay get policed too hard to a point of where it becomes too much effort to even try. Not even things that straight break rules but just things that certain people don’t like and decide to punish you for it.

Yeah for example a while ago I made role play saying I was getting married then I divorced my wife, bambi has brought that back, now both bambi and I are making rp that my ex wife has come back to kill me and my cousin who Is leader of the Irish Crime Family, Eleanor my ex wife is working with the shadows to kill me and the crime family bringing back the shadows

and if you don't want to rp like what bambi has mentioned then leave this is a role play server not a minge server

A lot of players tell me that roleplay can get repetitive. Even so, I think players should still make an effort, not all the time, but it would be appreciated.

No it's a roleplay server.

In fact people came to this roleplay server and forced us into pvp. Hence why we have rules for roleplaying and rules for against extreme pvp.
