Role-playing? What, like pretending to be a pony in Ponyville or something like that?....for some reason that appeals to a more nerdy side of me...
@Batty GloomIt's exactly how you described it.To be honest, this split will be FOR THE BETTER; now people who have issues with roleplayers won't see them clutter up the stream of tweets. Also we won't need to keep seeing that dreaded #ooc tag. :)Love ya, RPers, but this is for the best.
@ZarkanorfAgreed. The RPers entertain me most of the time but I don't actually do it myself and lately it's gotten hard to follow along with.
The RP tweets are pretty amusing but I can see why they're doing this. I'll sign up to the other one anyway
You know what's also hilarious? Everyone on Rainbow Dash Network, so far, is okay with this. It's like this mutual agreement like, "Yeah, we were kind of filling up the stream weren't we? Okay, I guess we could have our own thing..."No arguing. No slashing out at people like "RPfriends" or "RLfriends". No complaints or anything. FANDOM, WHY DO YOU AMAZE ME SO MUCH?!
What rainbowdash.net really needs is a better server.
@ZarkanorfThe way this fandom promotes and PRACTICES things like friendship and acceptance so much always astounds me. I know where you're coming from, brony

@AnonymousHonestly, I think the server issue is one of the main reasons the site is splitting to begin with. It was never intended for RP, but it's more or less making the site go slower with so much of it.
Brony: it's not a fandom, it's a lifestyle.
@WolverineBut with the roleplayers going to a subsite and MORE people coming to the main site AND the subsite... I'm worried that the servers can't take ALL OF THE BRONY it's going to be handed to it. Well, there will be influxes in traffic at certain times of them day, but before this announcement, all of the traffic either dies down at 1:00 to 3:30 Pacific Military time.Welp, I guess we'll get to that bridge when we cross it more.
@Anonymous>Book>Based on those RPsoh god what? It's impossible really to discern any sort of coherent plot from those messages.
What RBD.net need is live-updates without having to spam re-fresh/load.A better server could deal that, but it's still a matter of paying for service.I should be used to the RP. It's nearly identical to chat room RP with a room full of mobs.
