John Doe, weren't you leaving...?

I think I'm missing something regarding all this. Then again, it might in part have to do with the Zone: RPG forum I always skip over.
Wait, what? John had another account, with which he started another RPG? I'm confused now...
Lemurian: This John Doe guy and Nick The Swing are the same person.
^^ Hint: his name is John Doe.

So he is going to start killing us in ways based on the Seven Deadly Sins?

pretty much, and you are already dead.
EDIT: mellon, I did what you said, and read some Nietzsche, it filled me with a new purpose. From now on, no more defeatism, no more sockpuppeting in the wrong threads, and I will stop whining.

Can we rename this thread the Code of Hammubobby?
I second Haven's proposal.
Haven wins the first laugh of the day.
Excellently put Bobby.
Bump. Should there be some kind of rules about roleplaying? Because this isn't technically the place for such activities, and yet...
Rules 2 and 3 aren't sufficient?
So, what, casual rp games aren't allowed? Because I thought the rp subforum was for more offical, organized rps, as opposed to the casual go with the flow ones in here. I say don't make a new rule.
I don't see what's wrong with casual RPs here. I can even vaguely recall occasions where RPs in YF were moved here by moderators.
An RP is an RP whether it's a formal organized one or a quick casual. They all go in Role Playing in the Zone:Forum RPG forum.
So, on snowcloned games.
Several of them have been deleted (like ITT: Our avatars are pregnant and ITT: Do touch it), and they had a point. Are snowclones not kosher here either?
No, snowclones are OK here, hence why we still have all the "pick the x avatar" games and the "x association games" and the "ITT: we x" games.
I'm not sure why those threads were deleted, but they must have been deemed undesirable for whatever reason, perhaps due to post content?

Umm, I want to make a Furry RPG-thing were you can choose your animal and gender/appearance/ect. and battle. Can I do that by making a new thread for it?
It'd be a good idea to post that in the RPG sub-forum. I have a question too. Does godmodding get somebody banned?

^ Godmodding can get you banned, unless you're in a game that is specifically "wide-open, no rules". The question to ask is "Will godmodding in this game step on the other players' enjoyment?" If you think the answer would be "yes", don't do it.
Godmodding isn't cool to begin with.
So how do these RPG's work? Do you just write what's going on?
Use a real RPG system?
I would say that R Ps should have some kind of an organized structure to be in RP section. It's easy to blur the line between roleplaying and forum games. There needs to be a way to distinguish the two, and I think the structure is it.
Blurry lines indeed, think of things like Enter The Arena As Your Avatar or TV Tropes Roll To Dodge, the former of which Arty has considered many times of moving to the RP section and the latter actually using an RP system.
