Auditioning But Never Roleplaying.
Do you know what your app means to an admin? Get this: it means a lot. It means you’re interested in the roleplay, that you’re excited to join, and - most importantly - that you’re talking business. So when you’re accepted for a roleplay and you never send in your account, you’re being rude. For a few reasons. Let’s explore them.
First of all, you’re disappointing the admin. Yeah, admins have feelings, too. And when they get that beautiful app in their inbox, and you’ve portrayed their character just right, they’re super-excited to accept you. Who wouldn’t be?
Secondly, you’re being ungrateful - and you’re taking someone else’s opportunity away at the same time. What if there’s more than one audition for a character, and you get the character? How unfair is it if you don’t send in your account? Who do you think you are? There are others who wanted the character - who actually wanted to play the character - and you just applied for shits and gigs? Not good enough.
Moral of the story? Make sure you actually want to play the character before applying. And that’s a moral behind a lot of stories. If you get accepted as a character and don’t send the link in - and at least give the roleplay a try - you’re letting a ton of people down. And being a dickhead in the process.
