In any given day, a half-hour is a little over 1/50th of a day, or 30 minutes in a sum total of 1,440 minutes. That’s nothing. It may be the time it takes you to drive back and forth to work. It may be the time it takes you to eat lunch. It may be the time you spend with your eyes glued to a TV screen or listening to music. I don’t know - whatever the reason is, there are a lot of half-hours in a day, of course, reserved for different things in our lives. And we all have a half-hour to spare in a given day (unless it’s a really busy day, but let’s just say on average there’s at least a half-hour to spare in a given day).
In the span of one half-hour, you could write 1-3 roleplay posts. Folks I’ve been a part of this region for over two years now. I got into roleplay because it was fun and exciting. Is it still fun and exciting? Well for me it is, but there’s something missing. Maybe it’s you. Maybe I haven’t seen your nation around a bit. Maybe there’s something a person or people in my nation would like to do with your nation. Hell, maybe there’s something we could talk about to get our two nations to interact.
Bottom line is most of us who are “regulars” on the forums here have a main nation they at one point did roleplay with. If you roleplay still, thanks for sticking around. If you’re new, be bold and either start a storyline or get involved in a current one. But for the 'vets and the people who ‘know the ropes’ on the forums, where are you? We have some active people and some new people who could really use your creativity. Can you get your nation out and do some cool stuff with it? Can you interact with us and bless us with your creativity once more? Could you shake and roll with your awesome plots and develop neat storylines again?
In short, can you give us a half-hour of your time? One half-hour of roleplay. That’s all I ask. You can time it even if you want and count reading this as part of day one’s half-hour. I don’t care.
We who have chosen to have RP nations have a responsibility to our fellow roleplayers to interact and get involved. I think if we all work at this, we can really jump-start our roleplay section and increase interest in it for new and old players alike.
I hope to see you ‘on the floor’, so to speak. Thank you for your time.
