There's a huge problem here, and it's this. The people who are sensible, the people who are the best writers, or have the best ideas, or even just the ability to keep their heads for a few minutes without feeling the need to show how wacky and individual they are, those aren't the sort of people who are going to be willing to pay money for the ability to enter a roleplay on the internet.
More dedicated to the medium =/= better. Especially in this case, because it's an extremely flawed medium. All this is going to is lead to an influx of overly emotional writers with no idea of how to get a handle on their self-indulgence. It'll be free justification for every self-absorbed idiot that takes the gospel of just having fun u guise
as the most serious business ever departed unto mankind, those who treat is as a golden excuse that will make any stupid little idea that pops into their heads worthwhile, the people that genuinely force themselves to believe that a crossover RP about Batman working detective with Stripperella has genuine artistic merit.
So much like the RP section as it is right now, but more expensive.
You'd most likely be increasing your revenue, which is undoubtedly a good thing, but you wouldn't really be cleaning up the more troublesome moderation aspects. It's the emotionally indulgent drama queens that are likeliest to pay to want to stay in their super special RPs.
