Disclaimer: I haven't joined a rp here, and before you barrage me with requests, I am very picky in what I join. I usually make my own and if I do join, I don't usually stay long. This is from other forums, so I don't know if it applies here. Mostly I've seen this at Gaia, which I run two rp's at right now. Where the rules go into the normal: Nothing beyond hugging and kissing, no godmodding, etc... But a lot more often recently I've seen a lot of threads requiring at least a paragraph per post. One of the reasons I don't join anymore and some members get angry at me. I have word recall problems, meaning I can only type a certain amount of words per post that comes to my mind. It can be a sentence to three paragraphs or more depending on what I think. The problem is, if I try to force myself to think more than that, it drives me insane quickly, it's like for me to type up a 1000 words exactly and I have only 800 words on the subject, or 3000. Hence the reason I don't join rp's as much anymore. The defense to this from my reading is that members need a long post to reply in kind with a long post. Which I understand, but it's not something I can do. So I'm curious, does it matter how long a post is? Should it matter?
