Scared But Ready?

Post by Codename-Jack on Tue Dec 27, 2016 8:40 am

This fandom really scares me, I mean... REALLY scares me, but I'm tired of denying myself when all I want to do is roleplay. I guess this would be a great way of getting a taste of how the community is like. I noted how in most of the admin post people were at the least literate and I want that anywhere I go but especially after hearing the horror stories.

See... I'm 20 as of this year... Something like this doesn't appeal to the people I hang out with. As a result none of my rp buddies with the exception of my girlfriend will even touch the games or comics. Even then I don't want her doing it when she doesn't want to.

Even though I'm particular personally I can be accepting as long as whomever I'm with puts forth effort.

I'm still looking around the site but I hope that this is the place I need to be. I'm probably just going to try out for either Silver, Shard, or Gold. I know at least Silver is open. I'm not too comfortable making a Sonic OC yet since I only make ocs for my own original universes.

If you've felt like this please give me a shout out. I need it, trust me.

And yes my name is a reference.

So, I never really do these kind of replies, but I just wanted to asure you that we aren't very scary individuals. Most of us don't bite and in the year I've been on here I've met some really cool people! 

So yeah, welcome to the forum, nice to meet you and I hope you have a good time being around here!

I've been looking around and only seeing good so far. I was wondering if there was an art community on here as well since I see a lot of draen assets.

There's a subforum for creative stuff, it's in the link above. There's a media section, an art section, character bios etc c:

Oh shoot hello newbie!
...First of all I can warn you that judging your Silver application might take a while - most admins are working and we're a little slow paced at the moment ;u;
But yeah hi! I'm Elec, one of those, hopefully, literate admins!
I can tell you that we're.. pretty accepting when it comes to OCs? Like. They need no tie in to the Sonic canon whatsoever - so tbh just about any furry character is accepted here. As long as it's an animal!
I see other stuff was taken care of, and of course you can feel free to ask the members or the staff for help, so uh, most I can do now is wish you the best of luck and lots of fun here with us~!

This place seems great already, thanks. I already submitted my character app, I expect there to be a wait... someone else just applied. If I don't get in I'll just gun for Shard.

Hey newbie! Don't worry about not knowing EVERYTHING, I mean who does? ^^
We're all here if you need a wee hand with anything. Don't be scared to ask because all you'll get is an answer.
The admins don't bite... Often Wink (I'd be careful of elec though, she likes to nibble if she's feeling peckish xD) 
I hope you have a good time here and maybe we will get to roleplay at some point! o/

How do I ping another user? That's the only thing that's really stumping me so far. I've used forum based roleplay before but it was on Subeta where pinging was as easy as pressing a button.

Basically when you're talking in a group and you want to specify who you're talking to. It also has other perks such as it alerts people even if their unsubscribed to a thread. Say I found useful information about a bug on the site but it was in a comment on someone else's post. Since I'd want to let staff know ASAP I'd ping the any staff members online.

Well - I don't think we have that exact thing.. But we surely have alternatives!

For example, sending someone a PM is something one can't miss cause they receive an email about a PM waiting and a popup window when they enter the site.
You can also quote someone's post or a part of it in your own which.. Doesn't have a signal but it looks different enough to attract attention, I suppose.
Also, we use Skype! There's a group chat for active members and you can simply invite like most of us, so that's also a way.
But I am afraid we don't have pinging, sorry :c

Oooo! I like the skype option. Granted I don't have Skype on my phone because my stupid data plan I'm on my PC frequent enough. How do I join?

http://sonicrpnation.forumotion.com/t3415-the-srn-skype-group-2-0 there ya go!

Admittedly, you do not have enough posts to be in the group chat yet, but that does not mean you can't add people to your contacts! Do feel free to add me, electrisa_shila , and I think most of the members wouldn't mind if you added them too - though you don't have to, of course. Take your time meeting people here and getting used to the site!

Greetings, my dude. I just gotta say- there's no need to be scared of anyone here. (except for Elec. She's pretty freaky Razz) Also, I hope your application for Silver goes well! I think you seem good enough, at least, however, I don't have the authority, so... *shrugs*

Annnyway, if you ever do decide to make an OC, I'll be delighted to share some tips. Hell, my first oc here (Caen) started off as some generic angsty teen, but... I feel in the best part of a year I've spent here... I've grown... Somewhat. But, I digress.

Hope you have a great time here!

~Red

Well... Since were on the topic. I've made non-Sonic ocs prior... And I've made fursonas... I was actually wondering if it would be acceptable for me to make a Robian OC. I REALLY like robots... I just don't know how this community deals with Robians and Mechas. I'd think up a way to make it work if everyone would be chill with it.

Pretty sure that robot OCs and the like are fine, so long as they're not metal versions of canon characters (metal Silver, metal Tails, etc.)
