    Only if they list in their opening post that they're recruiting. When the "Private" tag is placed, it usually means all the spots are filled. Occasionally, vacancies arise. You're best served by reading the introductions in the OOC part of the RP in which you may be interested. Story tellers will post their rules and expectations there, as well as provide a list of vacancies.

    Some of the RPs request that you dedicate yourself only to one story. But we have many members who participate in multiple story lines. If you are new to RPing in general, I would advise that you start out with just one so that you can familiarize yourself with the type of time demands might be required. You can always add another one once you get experience.

    one last question, is it possible to switch what category my thread is in? Cause I made two threads, one a private, and one an ooc, they are each supposed to be in active story's, but they aren't.

    Is your story active or still recruiting and getting set up?

    Once you get your initial rules and opening setting posted, and when you are done recruiting, send me a message and I'll move the in-character thread to the Active stories section.

    Nothing specific, really. But make sure you've written a good introduction and are offering a compelling story. And if people don't seem interested, invite anyone to comment on your idea and see if you can figure out what's causing people to turn away. Sometimes there's a condition, restriction or other aspect of a story that just isn't appealing to people.

    Also, be patient and make sure you give people enough time to respond. We're an international forum so people keep all kinds of different hours.

    So I want to make my own RP, but I want to be sure of the steps before I make one first.
    Soo..
    1. Make an OOC thread for the RP explaining stuff abot the RP
    2. When I have enough characters and want to start RPing, I make another thread for the main RP
    2a. I make it Open if I want more characters
    3. We start
    4. If I think we have enough/too much characters, I switch the tag to Private (is it possible to switch the tags? if so how?)
    tadaa
    I just wanted to make sure, so is this correct? thanks.

    I've had problems with open RPs before. The OOC can be open, but the main thread should generally be private. People go to your OOC to post CCs, and possibly be recruited. That way they don't interrupt the story with random posts. At least, that's how I've always done it. And I don't think you can change tags.

    So I'll just have to edit the first post and put "not recruiting" and stuff, i guess.
    Thank you very much :D

    Hello! Ladies and gentlemen. I am very glad I can stand here to talk about some cosplay problems with you. I am in need of help now. Please give me a favor. Thank you very much!
    To tell you the truth, I am a loyal fan of Harry Potter. I like Harry Potter costumes and his magic wand as well. I have been planning to cosplay as him these days. So, I have to search for the best costumes and my favourite magic wand on the internet in order to become more famous. However, I have no ideas which on line stores are the best places to go to. Oh, what about skycostume store? Can anybody tell me some advice, please? Thank you very much!

    Well, focus on health, and magika. Get restoration up to legendary, then when he changes, switch from restoration to destruction. Other than that focus on heavy armor, one handed, and enchanting. That's all I could think of.
