Welcome to RPR! My name’s Five and I’m just dropping by to tell you that you’re gonna have so much fun here!! Everyone here is so nice and welcoming, it’s amazing. I hope you have a great time! If you want to chat or rp, don’t be shy to message me!!

As for navigating, the forums work simply! They're labeled with specific names such as "Looking for RP" or "Forum Games" which should give you an idea of what you're gonna find in that forum!

For navigating profiles, under a person's picture there's different options of things you can do.

Sending someone a message will send it to their inbox! When you receive a message in your inbox, it will display a little letter and the text '1 new message'. When you click on the message, you'll see what the person sent and you'll be able to reply from yourself or one of your characters. This also applies to forums!

Editing your profile can be confusing, but you can edit it from your dashboard or by clicking on your name! Here you can find the link to BBcode tips, which will help you customize your profile so it's perfect for you!

I'm not the best at giving directions, but I hope this helped!

We've got some great forums around that can help you with what you need! In the meantime, I hope you have fun and you can PM me if you have a specific question. I can try an' help you out!~

Hi! Welcome to RPR! I know it can be a bit confusing (I've been here for two months and I'm still finding out new things), but many people will be able to help you out! I'll leave it to them since I'm not very good at it ;3
If you need any help, you can always head to the Help forums and ask any questions you have. Welcome to RPR!

Your characters are located on your dashboard - I think that's the biggest confusion most newbies have. :)

Please let us know if you have any specific questions we can help with! Otherwise we're just directing you around randomly.
Hi!! Welcome to RPR Absithe!! I get the struggle, it took me a while to find out where my characters were and all that. However, you get used to it. I think most everyone has already covered anything I would’ve had to say. I hope you have fun here!!

Hello and welcome to the RPR, the best rp website in my opinion. Umm, I'm still getting used to the navigation on here 2 so idk how to help all that much.
Hello and welcome to RPR. They have a really good help area to help you.
Thank you guys so much!

You're very welcome! :D


Welcome to RPR! I’m overly glad that you found this wonderful site. It is one of the kindest RP sites that I have ever been on and I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do!

If you’re ready to roleplay then I would suggest going to “looking for RP” or “Find RP”. There you will find the exact roleplay that you desire. If you need anymore help with exploring and understanding the site, I’ll be willing to help you out. :D

I agree with Kim (who made all this!) that finding the character profile stuff was a bit confusing. But I think the real confusion that became one of my favorite things is that you can post AS a character!

I love the "played by" feature of this site!

Hi, Inkwren said I had to come over and say hello. So....hi.

I hope you and your characters have a great time here in RPR. Currently, I am just sitting in the spacedock just waiting for my own journey to start!

I'd like to go ahead and mention that the Help documentation here is pretty great. It's remarkably easy to understand, and can probably help with a lot. (Not everything is linked to - some pages need a search to find.) And there's something missing, or you're just not sure how to find it, folks are always happy to help with more specific questions. :)
Welcome to RPR!
Welcome, the Help area has been very useful to me.
