Hi, I am really new to all this, I like wrighting stories and a friend told me about role play, which sounded really cool. So I downloaded this app and looked at a lot of posts, but I really don't know how to get into a server or conversation (I mean if I have to do anything or ask permission to join or something similar so I just thought I would ask) or how to create a character. Also I would like to ask what all these shorts mean (like[CS], etz).

Welcome to RPF! I'm Shinigami, the Community mod. ^_^

Since you're new here, you should probably take a look at our rules; here's a link: Da Rules.

As for your situation, you can get a lot of help in the Resources subforum. To break it down a bit - the Request (REQ) boards are where you put your role play (RP) requests and general interest checks.

The RP boards are where the RPs themselves go. This is where the actual playing happens.

The out of character (OOC) boards are where you put your OOC threads. OOC threads are where you talk about the RP and such, and aren't really necessary. But they do help by keeping chatter out of the REQ threads.

Finally, the character sheet (CS) board is where you put your CS threads. This is where you put accepted characters or store your list of personal characters. Like the OOC threads, this is not necessary, but it does help keep things neat and organized.

As for making a character, it really depends on the RP in question and your overall creativity. If you happen to find an RP you like while browsing through the requests, they should include a CS template in their thread. Just fill out the necessary fields while thinking up your character, then post it in the thread and wait for it to be accepted or denied. If they accept it, check to see if they have the RP up in the RP board. If they do, you should be okay to play. If not, they may be waiting for more players.

As for other tags... [ONE] and [1x1] are one on one threads, and will only accept one other player. Threads with [RESERVED] or are tagged with a user's name are reserved, and will not accept anyone but the player that they are waiting on. [CLOSED] is a closed RP. They are not accepting players. [OPEN] means they are currently looking for more people, or that anyone can join.

I hope this helps! If you have any more questions or concerns, just message me or another member of the staff. ^_^

Try the Testing Forum for things like that. Just make a thread there and you can post whatever you want to keep for personal reference.

The CS boards are also acceptable for storing your characters. Just try to keep them to a single thread for neatness. ;)
