Sensitivity, emotion and the users of CotH

..That was a uh, joke. My boldness got a little too far, sorry about that.

I should perhaps be more considerate in not posting when very tired.
Hand me some feedback!

CotH is healthy as a community, but I still think that we have a long way to go when it comes to being open. I'd like to put it out there that I myself had an awkward phase when I first began RPing here, but it was in part due to not feeling like I fit in. Heck, I'm 2 1/2 years old here, and I still feel like I'm in my awkward phase. Part of it has to do with my own personality, but another reason I feel awkward in CotH is because I've been noticing that circles in this community are more rigid than ever and I'm having trouble finding RP outside the one I believe I belong to.

'Circles' is a dreaded word here, I know, but it is part of the frustration I feel about this community. I know others who feel the same way, some that have even left for this reason.

However, there's also a happiness I feel in that you guys have provided me with some of the best RP I've had, and continue to do so. I believe that someone here said something along the lines of, "What we're doing here is collaborative writing/storytelling." I don't remember who this person was, but the word 'collaboration' means a lot for this community, and I think that what we do here represents the word very well.

Imagine what happens when you don't feel like you're a part of a circle.

I wonder if it might be an idea to implement some sort of "RP Guides" or leaders who could hold at least one open RP event a week or something...

Try to never just say, "My character isn't interested in that adventure." A lot of people mistake this for good roleplaying, because you are asserting your character's personality. Wrong. Good roleplaying should never bring the game to a screeching halt. One of your jobs as a player is to come up with a reason why your character would be interested in a plot. After all, your personality is entirely in your hands, not the DM's. Come up with a reason why the adventure (or the reward) might appeal to you, no matter how esoteric or roundabout the reasoning. -(Source)

This sounds like something the community could use. I'd be willing to do it.
Cayce Northend - Druid of the Cenarion Circle
Micheru Bloodrune - Moonglade Ranger / Vagabond
Gratua Daggermouth - Walking the path of Lo'gosh
Medrit Brightwind - Wandering Swordsmaster

I'm all for doing this and would volunteer for this now that I have time.

However...why not promote spontaneous events all the time, then there wouldn't be a need for guides. The rewarding thing about this is that you get to RP with people you never expected you would have RP'd with.

Then again, I think it'd be productive to be given obligation, because then I'd /have/ to stir up some open RP mini-events.

I think I'm one of the people that feels coth is already too reliant on events. It's hard to keep a guild alive unless you're doing events constantly, and it can be a real pain to keep doing all the time.

My major frustration is when trying to generate RP, nothing happens.

We still have a fairly low population and everyone wants something different... Unless the "flavor of the month" is present. Then usually everyone holes up with that RP in one location while everyone else idles in GMI or runs off to RP privately.

When I get the urge to RP, I sometimes try to invite as many as I can to join, but . . . Well, I suppose my timing is ridiculous. I rarely achieve anything with it - sometimes the only ones who respond are the people who are really good friends of mine, or they want something else entirely than what I want right now. It's bemusing, at times. I think these "circles" occur because some people just like different kinds of roleplay. I mean, I have plenty of OOC friends I hardly RP with at all, while others I bump into frequently without really knowing them beyond their characters.
