The Role Play part of the forum has been seeing a lot less activity lately. Then again, much of the forum has seen little activity. Doesn't necessarily mean the forum is dying, but it isn't as lively as it once was.

As for your question, there are some great RPers here at PKMN.NET. I can't name any off the top of my head mostly because lots of folk change their username regularly. I'm actually thinking of starting an RP soon, now that I don't have classes to study for.

I'd love to keep roleplaying, it's just the few that do open aren't often something I like or something I do like dies very quickly (including my own)
It's sad that the board isn't as active as it used to be...

I tried to get into it a couple of times, but the RPs either died pretty quickly or didn't even start. But I'd love to give it a go, assuming the right one comes up.

I keep trying but roleplays are currently dying. I havent seen much activity or interest currently neither here or on the PLC which is a shame. I just hope the activty increases on the X/Y releases.

If y'all are interested, I recently created a Pokemon themed RP thread, nobody's really applied though. Anyways, I'm glad to see that people are using this here forumblah... (<Not a real word, I do that sometimes.)

I might consider joining after you have some more people.

There's a possibility that everyone has that attitude. Eheh...

I did think of that. If other people seem to be thinking the same way, I'll join and see if it helps gain more people.

i was assuming it was lack of enthusiasm or encouragement from the OP/mods of the RP because there's more focus on studies and whatnot instead of pokemon and roleplay, but given that summer break should be in effect for most [american] schools i'm surprised to still see this board in relative inactivity

that said i've been actually considering making one for the first time in a good while, but it's somewhat cookie-cutter and needs to be fleshed out a little more before i'm ready to post the thread

in the meantime i'd like to see a good few threads on here to join; i need to get back into the swing of things instead of posting a form and never actually making replies, hah

honestly, i just havent found anything interesting, and i also don't frequent this forum like i used to. i love roleplaying and there have definitely been a few awesome threads -- but i've been doing this for eight years. unfortunately, it takes a little more than "trainers/pokemon/animals doing ___" to pique my interest usually.

Truth be told I very rarely come on here anymore. I love the RP board and it was pretty much my home on this site so it's sad to see it so desolate when it used to be so busy.

I also don't have time to run an RP, nor would I want to anyway considering mine usually die (and it's usually my fault for it as well XD ). If a decent RP pops up then maybe I'll make a comeback here. Who knows.

unfortunately as old rpers rped more we got better and rps here are simply no longer interesting as you are stifled to one topic whereas with joining an actual rp site where the entire site is dedicated to one rp you have a lot more freedom.

and i hate to sound like an ~*~*elitist*~*~ but a lot of the rps made now are for like back when i was 12/13, easy rps for newcomers. experienced rpers are more likely to join a well fleshed out topic rather than "animal/people/pokemon do stuff go"

Roleplay was all I really ever used to do on this site. I haven't been on here for a very long while, but every time I've popped back this area seems more and more dead. Which is a terrible shame because I have some wonderful memories and I really did enjoy writing with the community on here. There were some great Roleplays going and it's sad to see things having fizzled out.

I hold an interest in it, although I haven't RPd on a forum in a while. I'd still be tempted to join up if something struck my interest. I guess I may be wrong in saying this, if so, excuse me, but I feel it was very much the same people on this forum. The group of Roleplayers didn't really refresh or keep growing because it was the same group, and eventually it got smaller and smaller as time went by because of loss of interest...real life etc.

Anyway. Whatever the reason, I remember 'the good old days' and certainly would be happy to see this area grow more. I feel a lot of the death may even be because people see how dead the Roleplay thread is so they don't even bother making new threads or Roleplays that may spark new interest due to the apparent emptiness of this area :/
