I'm spurred on by Nell's post below to give y'all an update on my life!! First of all, I'm sorry I have been quiet lately!! I've been SUPER busy with the end of the semester stuff. These past couple weeks I've had a lot of papers/art projects due. Next week is finals, so all this time I've hardly had any time to check theO ):
As for what's happening in PGR, I believe as soon as Afton gets time, she will post for Krory, which will be the transition post into the war!!!
If anyone has any questions about anything, comment below. I think I answered the questions though :3
Whatever happened to that idea..?
Past a week now and no one have posted.
Well, I wish I could be the one to start PGR back up but we've been on break for too long I really don't know where to start from. Plus personal reasons.
How about y'all?
Can we get the show on the road so this wonderful place cannot be dead any longer? I know we are all tired of checking (stalking) theO to see a post on PGR when there is not, or is that just me..?
(I know no one is going to comment because no one listens to me so maybe it was a waste of time posting this. But at least I'm being honest and stating my opinion)
Alright, so yes, we are starting back up, -I know, it's been three weeks- since the whole April Fool's incident, but hopefully, everybody has that behind them now and we can get started up again with some pretty awesome posts from you guys once we get the next post up that continues the story line.
Now, we are still wanting to address problems that you guys have in this RP and we would love to fix them so let's start up in the comment box of when you guys can meet up for a chatroom meeting and we can address problems and hopefully fix them all! We already have been told of some problems and have addressed them, but we would like to know everybody's problems as well so that we aren't left in the black. We can start up a monthly chatroom if you guys desire us to so that we can always address problems and talk to each other like a family. We would also love to know if anybody would like to join PGR, for those out there who just read these posts and love to just read what goes on in the RP and for those who have an interest. If anybody has anyone that wants to join, please tell us!
So yes, Afton will post next with Krory and then it will be a free for all, posting spree. She ought to be posting within the next few days, if not tomorrow. Please include everyone and we have some new characters from members also joining us during the war, and sadly, we do have to have some characters leave as well from those who have left us. Trust me, I hate writing those posts just as much as the other guy. I've done it before. It's not fun, but we have to do it.
If anybody has any questions, comments, or need help, please contact me or any of the leaders! We would love to help you!
I have a soar throat and I sound like Terezi.
I... I know I let my anger get the best of me, and I did spit on a few others. Sorry if I upset anyone. I know the whole drama needs to be put to rest, and I want it to (and yet I'm talking about it. Hypocritical me... sorry!)
If it's okay, I want to share my entire opinion.
I love N. I love N, and Eneko, and Anime, and Naomi, and I think they're great leaders. They're nice, easy to talk to, and their personalities are totally rad.
Everyone here is totally bombastic! (I'm a newbie and semi-asocial, but I stalk-like pretty much every member here~)
Going back to the whole "joke" thing. Sure, it was upsetting to some people.
And sure, N has that sense of humor.
And yeah, no one is perfect.
Either way, it still hurt people.
BUT BUT BUT, she apologized. Several times, if I'm not mistaken.
She realized it upset some people, and so she said sorry. Why? Because she's a really great person (not everyone can be Miss Minnesota. Sorry.)
There were really only two things that personally upset me, though-- one of them being the lunging at necks, which I saw go both ways. And to quote myself from before, members are the bod of the club. We NEED to be nice and respectful and geniunely like eachother to actually enjoy ourselves.
The leaders are the head. Equally respectful, but bossing around with a purpose. To compare En, Anime, and N to Stalin, Mussolini, and Hitler wouldn't be right. Personalities clash, but that's no excuse for shouting. Relationships are two-way streets, though. It wouldn't be fair to sit and wait for the other person to change how they're acting. Communication, respect, writing.
And, this... this also made me angry. And this is just a broad peeve of mine--
when people appropriate rights to be offended by something. (That means 'tell someone else how they should feel', basically).
I always thought that should someone apologize, it pretty much erases what happened.
But when others go on and say "but it was a joke" "I don't see why others are so offended" "I'm just saying I don't think it's fair to be upset I'm not saying it was okay" "I'm just stating my opinion if you don't like it deal with it"
NO. This isn't even about you. You don't even know what you're talking about, nor does it really matter. The sentiments are sweet, but considering you aren't part of either party, it's not your duty to resolve things. It's just noise.
And I'm not sure how many times I heard this, but: "whether or not anyone here feels these pains..."
when you say that, you're invalidating their feelings, which IS insensitive, because they're really the only ones to have the right to say they're offended in the first place.
If you said any of those thing, and then say you haven't been insenisitve-- spoiler alert: you have been.
That doesn't make you a bad person, and it doesn't mean sheeple hate you.
It just means that you have also underminded other's feelings
and for that, you should apologize.
Basically, all I want to say is
2-knowing when it's approriate to say something (which, again, is respect)
3- I guess I'm neutral about the break? I think it's sad this got out of hand. If it helps everyone chill out, then sweet.
4- We desperately need to get to know eachother instead of expecting others to just deal with our personality flaws.
ps, public apolgy to TDE that I damaged your feels.
But I stand behind what I said.
Not the way I said it, but the words itself.
I KNOW WE ARE ON BREAK, IT SLIIPED MY MIND
I didn't mean to rebel or anything! Sorry!
Like the title says, let's take the break now! We need to cool down, become level-headed, and discuss when our conversations will start in theOtaku chatroom in comment boxes. We aren't to get any posts after this, and if you want to tell us your opinion, please tell us through PM or through comment! ^^
See you guys in a week!
