Alright, I'm gonna leave you with some advice when joining or writing for an RP. Tone is important, and maintaining that tone is what maintains interest.

Aliens, as a series, is gritty. The pseudo-comedic moments of the film consists of banter between crew members and/or the USCM squad. Rarely [except for Alien 4] is there any over-the-top, ridiculous comedy shit. I figured that when in the RP, you'd figure out this. But you kept on having too much humor. Comedy is fine, believe me; your problem is that you oversaturated it and it quickly became way too much.

I get that RPs really don't matter, but it kills the mood and the world we were trying to make, dude. Having your character fantasize about various things that didn't have anything to do with the story wasn't really comedic, it was just random and sporatic.

We were trying to make Aliens, and you made Alien: Resurrection.

It ever occur to anyone to tell me to stop it?

It's not that hard really.

Just come up and say

"Dude, we're trying for a more serious atmosphere, so please cut the jokes and delete or edit your earlier replies"

Anything would have been better than abandoning the Rp
