Hey! So, I love how everything is set up in looking for rp, but I do have a few suggestions.

What if you could put a minimum number of lines for the type of roleplay? Like, I prefer to only roleplay using 3 or more lines. Could we have an option like that?

Therefore, people who are more qualified for the roleplay will join it, not people who are only capable of maybe three lines, or who prefer to have 20+ line responses.

It's quite common for folks to list such in the body of their posts. :)

My concern is: what even is a line? A single sentence can be very long or very brief. Lines across a screen vary depending on text size and screen width. Like, on my phone right now, this paragraph is already 5 rows of text as I type. Now 6. 7 upon posting.

When I turned my screen with the published post, that paragraph dropped to 5 rows.

Edit: That same paragraph on my laptop, at the size I usually keep my browser window, drops to just 3 rows.

I usually mention the number of words as opposed to lines or paragraphs as the latter two can be somewhat subjective. I picked this up from a friend and now say ’my post length is in the range of 100 to 500 words depending on the amount of dialogue and narrative required’

Referring to lines, I had one RP’r write out a phone-screen of text as one sentence before. Quite unreadable.

Interestingly, the RPR actually tracks average post length in an IC post, and you are slightly more likely to see looking for a role play ads from people in a similar bracket to you when you use the Find RP search tool.

We DO have a setting in which you can set your preferred post length in broad terms, ranging from concise to paragraphs.

The most common thing though, if you have really specific requirements, is to just write it into your ad. :) I think that's really the best way to go.

That’s news to me, is that based off forum posts or does it also include PMs?

Currently only on forum posts, as we've had no way to distinguish IC/OOC pm conversations previously. 2.0 changes that and it will be able to use both going forward.
