I started rping in some yahoo pokemon roleplay group two years ago. I had it ALL WRONG (so wrong). I accidentally wrote what is possibly the worst fanfic ever (Worse than satire) because nopony would reply. Well, I was upset about that and ran off to som "Deoxys Dash - The End is Near" site. I managed to save the dying site, and was banned shortly afterwards for not understanding how roleplay works (I used my one character in, like, 5 threads at a time) and killing my character without permission (wtf?!). Well, the site died shortly afterward.
I ended up joining another pokemon roleplay forum, where I started to get a tiny bit better. Then, I hosted my own. It lasted a few months, and it had a great community. It eventually died, despite the fact that we fought as hard as we could to keep it alive. Things happen, I guess. I stopped forum RPing then, and went on to rping on (don't laugh) ROBLOX. Two or three years later, I joined this site and posted this message.
