Hello, I am Pickleseller. Some of you may know me from roleplays and chat. To remember this year, I have decided to write a blog.

When I started roleplaying in the summer, I absolutely loved it. I was a noob, and I admit I still kind of am. Regardless, there were plenty of very good RP's, among them the TGRP (which me and Fishy were the GM's for).

Later in the year, however, October or late September I believe, something changed. No longer were there RP's the likes of the Rose and New Continent. Instead, a lot of new people joined. Now, not all of them are bad (some are quite good) but well, the quality of RP's went down when they joined. Many of them use the same character for every RP, with the same personality, the same appearance, the same bio, etc. Again, I'm not saying all of them are bad. But they lack the same feel, the same... something else.

Anyway, all I wanted to say was that I feel RP's were on the decline this year. And that I wonder what the next will bring.

Happy New Year.
