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. ♥

How's My Driving?
Do you have feedback or critique on how I play Diva? This is the place to give it! Also if you could provide links to examples with any critique, that would be excellent, since it'll help me identify (and improve!) the issue.
If you'd like to talk in slightly easier but still private way, you can send a PM!

main personality traits (positive or negative)
are they loving, gentle, rude, strong and silent? are they stubborn, angry, bitchy? what are the traits you'll notice about them first?

flaws or negative personality traits
are they hypocritical? do they kick puppies? are they quick to judge, kind of dumb or have a superiority complex?

do they see themselves the same way the rest of the world sees them? you've outlined their dominant personality traits, but do they actually believe they possess those traits or do they see themselves in a different light?

what do your characters want? what drives them? do they have short term goals, long term goals, overarching goals? do they have a purpose they want to achieve?

are they religious? are they a pacifist? do they believe life should be lived their own way? do they live for someone or something?

how do they relate to other people? how do they feel about things?

quirks and mannerisms
idiosyncrasies? nervous habits? phobias? do they have a sense of humor?
