First of all, welcome to Dreamwidth-based roleplay!

I'm opening up this posts to general questions about roleplaying on this site because after seeing some newer players come into this format, I realized that there are a lot of things I take for granted and just assume everyone knows even though that's not always the case! We're a very unique format with our own standards, lingo, and what have you, and it's often difficult to jump into unless you have someone holding your hand along the way. There are a lot of resources out there to get you started, but at the same time, there's always something better about asking a person directly when you have a question instead of hunting for an answer in something that's already been written and may not even apply!

Just to give you a little background about me, since I'll be answering the questions, my name is Christy! I actually started out on journal-based roleplaying on Livejournal in 2006 more or less on a whim, and I've been continuously playing ever since. I've played a wide variety of characters in an even wider variety of games, and I've both created games from scratch and run them and helped mod ones that other people have made. So as such, you can ask questions about RP from the perspective of a player, but also from the perspective of a mod.

And of course, as a disclaimer, all answers I give are purely from my experience and my opinions! You might find that other people have different opinions or answers to questions, and I of course encourage people to jump in and answer questions as they see fit. This post is open to any kinds of questions at all, and if I don't have an answer for you off the top of my head, I'll do my best to try and find one for you. There's no such thing as a stupid question, so ask whatever you want! Even if it seems like the most basic, inane thing, I'm still happy to answer.

So go ahead! Ask any questions you'd like, and I'll answer them as quickly as I can. ♥
