Tell us about how you like to virtual role play.  We can start another thread on real life role play too.

Do you prefer chats or instance messaging like YIM?  If you do chats, are you always private or sometimes do it in front of other people?

Do you do it by e-mail?

Are the posts very long and detailed or short and quick, mostly in real time?

Have you ever considered doing it on the board in front of everyone?  The role play being a story everyone can follow.

I've done both, chat and YIM. I've also done virtual roleplay on Kik. I have done rp with Britney Stevens in the chatroom and it was quite exciting. I actually prefer instant messaging the most, however.

I prefer detailed responses. They don't have to be really long but put some work into them. Make me feel like I'm there.

I have tried e-mail, but I prefer chat (YIM) as you can get more into the story because it's in real time and so you have quicker responses. I think detail is something that often gets overlooked which is quite the bummer because I think it really adds to the roleplay. I enjoy being able to play the story in my head if that makes sense and details allow me to do that.

Obviously Plaything and I prefer to do it posting on the board.

We started RPing in a place sort of like the Play Room where we were posting to each other following the rules of the threads.  We soon had several threads going where we were banging the hell out of each other.  We eventually moved to a posted RP I called Jed's Cave, that I've started to copy here but haven't finished yet.

The Serial Rape RP actually started as emails to each other, that I would post after we accumulated a dozen or more.  We're not using e-mails or PMs for RP any more, but we still flirt in them.

The Organization RP was a spin off from and multi-person RP until we moved it for just us.

We have done chat RPs in private, but it's been awhile since we've done that.  Actually our chats are usually more intimate than an RP.

Generally speaking, I allow my partner to select the where, e-mail, YIM, in the forums, etc.  It is my small attempt to help make my play partner feel comfortable.  That, being said, I do prefer e-mail.   When writing I try for at least 2 paragraphs.  Fortunately, or unfortunately as the case may be, this doesn't always happen.   First step, I read the previous post carefully, I will select some piece of information that I feel will help move the story along.  Keeping in mind I most often will want to add some interesting and unexpected twist.  For example offering my victim a "No  win" kind of choice.   This has the result of sometime making my posts a little longer;  however, I have also done some very short and to the point posts that say only what needs to be said.

1. Do you prefer chats or instance messaging like YIM? If you do chats, are you always private or sometimes do it in front of other people?

Yes -- YIM exactly. I started out with YIM because Yahoo offered the sexual roleplay rooms, which is where I found all of my partners. I dabbled with AIM but they didn't offer the public rooms, so I didn't see the point. As far as privacy goes, almost everything I've done has been private, with the one exception of one night I was in a YIM room, tied up on a couch, and various members of the room were taking turns with me. It was an experience, but I didn't enjoy it enough to do it again.

2. Do you do it by e-mail?

I've yet to roleplay via email.

3. Are the posts very long and detailed or short and quick, mostly in real time?

A little of both. When I'm in a scene 100%, they're long and detailed and ALSO in real time, because I possess a high typing speed. Usually, because I'm immobilized and have little control over the situation, my posts consist of 1-2 sentences reacting to the moment, and then exposition.

4. Have you ever considered doing it on the board in front of everyone?  The role play being a story everyone can follow.

I've done one RP in public on a different board, but it lost momentum because I wasn't particularly interested in the scenario. I'm unsure about the idea. I like the short, intense, immediate gratification that a YIM roleplay offers, but I'm still open to the idea of a longer scenario.
