Here is the new, updated survey. Some questions have been omitted and new questions have been added. The required questions take less than a minute to complete. 

@the last confessor: don't be a hater.
+ Anonymous

Being a “hater” and disliking a ship are two totally different things. 

These days it’s starting to feel like you can’t just dislike a ship purely because you dislike it. People expect you to have some kind of deep reasoning for it and if you don’t? “Oh my god just get out, you obviously just hate it cos it gets in the way of your ship!”. As long as they’re not hating on people for shipping it, why can’t people dislike a ship just because?

I get really worried if my RP partner doesn’t respond within the next two days since I don’t know who they are and I don’t know where they could be.

What are the results of the survey right now?
+ Anonymous

As of right now, there has been 211 responses. An majority of respondents so far have been female, between the ages of 18 & 21, and roleplay every day.

I would like to get at least 288 more responses before I publish the results.

My fandom is so cliquish and mean that I’m afraid to start anything in fear of backlash from the popular people

I hate days when I wake up and miss an old partner. Then I remember why we don’t write together and a part of me wishes that I could just go and apologize so we can start over.

If someone has a trigger or limit on topics that they won’t write, do NOT try to manipulate your way around it just because you want to write it. If they don’t feel comfortable writing something, don’t try to make them do it, end of story. If you’re that desperate to have those characters in that particular situation, either find a RPer of that character who isn’t uncomfortable with it or write your own fanfiction. You don’t have the right to dictate the limits that someone will write.

One of my friends likes to make rps and throw fits when things don’t go her way. We made the mistake of letting her admin a roleplay once.. and she makes us scrap every single RP she isn’t in because she “didn’t give permission for it”. I’m tired of it.

Sometimes I think Tumblr RPers forget the ratios of races and sexualities. The world is not primarily white bisexuals or homosexuals, and while representation is important, it shouldn’t be that difficult to find a heterosexual PoC. And yet it is.
