The Concrit Post  
...This icon is both canon and creepy.

I'm new and I'm playing a really, really new character. We're both new!

Anyway, Paul hasn't done much yet so feel free to continue to reply to this as time goes on. But what do you think of him? IC? Not IC?

Also, if you have any questions about the way I portray him or write him, feel free to ask! I...I love essaying.

Due to the newness, feel free to do me but do me gently, please.

I think I've said it already, but you're being nicely IC, as far as I can tell! I've only seen the three dub episodes of D/P so I don't know about anything down the line from there.

Also, if you weren't aware of it cfud_concrit is a community just for crit!

Hi! I noticed your post today; it's great to see you playing and awesome to see you posting because CFUD does need more posts, but the problem is that it is really hard to tag one of your posts. You've had the same problem with your last few posts (http://community.livejournal.com/campfuckudie/4203232.html, http://community.livejournal.com/campfuckudie/4246790.html) — there's no real hook to them. The first one had a bit more of a hook, but those two plus your latest post did not have much that a commenter could reply to. Furthermore, in those posts, you dropped the threads after only a few comments, which is discouraging for others who want to play with you.

As a whole it gives off the impression that you don't really want to play with us, which isn't the case since you post, right? Please give more hooks so people can respond! A lot of people have had this problem in the past — Peony wrote up some great essays on hooks and posting in CFUD over here (http://inpignation.livejournal.com/8116.html, http://community.livejournal.com/cfud_concrit/32426.html?thread=7476906#t7476906) if you're interested. I would love to throw my characters at Paul's posts, but I always have a hard time coming up with a response to posts that do not have anything to respond to other than dots.

Additionally, while everyone is busy and has commitments and other things to do and games to play, it does come off as rude when people comment to a post and are left hanging without even a note. Running posts can be daunting, but may I suggest that if you post, you set aside some time to be around to respond to the post maybe? It can be difficult, but it would definitely be appreciated to know that there would be someone around to reply to the comments and, more importantly, someone to play with! People are responding because they want to play with you, after all. ♥

I actually completely agree; it's something I need to work on. Thanks for your input! ♥
