Word of Equestria Rp and Discrimination

Hello everypony! It's been a while hasn't it? As you may or may not know I have officially stepped down from Roleplay Helpstaff for now, I might very well come back someday if allowed, but for now I figure I can now really focus on connecting with the community again!

As always if you need aid with a character I'll

So I'm sure you'v seen the RPH around and have thought to yourself.. "HEY ! I can do that! " Well you'd be right! In fact helping other people with their applications is how a lot of the RPH that are in work today have THEIR jobs, I myself started out helping out with applications, with the sheer desire to help this site's users expand their work, and to do the very best that they can. However one should be sure to do this job for the right reason, if you get some glee out of tearing someone's a

Metagaming and why it's harmful for all parties

What metagaming is and why it is harmful to a roleplay for all parties. First off you might be confused if you've never heard the term “Metagaming” before!

For example if your character is suddenly very huffy and angry becau

What GodModing and Over Powered is, and why you shouldn't do it

The recent slew of Godmoding in NMN has really brought this issue to my attention! So tonight folks we are going to talk about Godmoding/OPing and why you shouldn't do it . It's /RUDE/! Who do you think you are by deciding someone isn't doing an action you want them to, and then forcing them to do it instead? No, don't do it, not even for the sake of "The story" unless you get PERMISSION. Example: "HEY COME HERE!" I called at Fluttershy, and then Fluttershy came over blushing" No, if it is

Patience is a Virtue:(Also known as "Why does it take so long to get my App stamped?")

Hello one and all! Today I am going to talk about a aspect of WOE rp that most probably don't realize is a part of it! Just as much as character development, appearance, and species! That would be of course the Roleplay HelpStaff! Both us RPH and the Senior Rph! Now I know the frustration of finishing an application and sitting there, waiting, itching to dive nose first into the WOE boards and rp my heart out! It is aggravating to just sit and wait and wait! I fully understand this as I had

Hello all! Welcome once again to my blog! I apologize for not posting an article for so long but Rph duties do come first nowadays!
