Some friendly chatroom advice:
Advice for prey:
- General etiquette:
- Be Interactive: This is fantasy roleplaying for 2 or more people. If you make the other person do all of the work, expect them (and anyone else who might have been watching) to ignore you next time. Everybody should walk away having had a fun time.
- Remain Courteous: If you have a problem with someone, let them know in a private message. Other people having a good time do not need to have their roleplaying interrupted by such matters.
- Ignore Lurkers: There are two types of Lurkers; those who simply enjoy watching and those waiting for a particular person or situation before joining. Respect their choice and view them as the preverbial fly-on-the-wall. They obviously are happy where they are, so why waste a line on the screen addressing them? If you're all alone, and 1 or more others are watching as Lurkers, entertain them. You might then find one of them willing to contribute.
- During any vore activity, please use private messages for unrelated issues. It is annoying to be in the middle of a good vore scene and then have a "hey 'xxxx', got your email" message pop up -- NOBODY ELSE CARES!!!
- Role Play: This may seem obvious, but is often neglected. Remember, this is a fantasy chat room for multitudes of people. Everyone has a much better time when people remain in character. Create alliances and friendships. Discuss past conquests. Have your characters talk as if they really happened. Even Lurkers enjoy seeing a follow-up to something they had witnessed a few days prior.
Advice for preds:
- Initiate the Scene: Don't just come in and say "I'm here! Who wants to eat me?" If you see a predator you wish to be eaten by, then give them a reason to eat you. Let him know who or what it is that entered. Do something that will get his or her mouth watering for a taste of your flesh. Remember, they're here to have fun as well - make their conquests as enjoyable as your demise.
- Don't cry out for help more than twice, unless you really want it. Someone may actually save you, when secretly you didn't want to be saved.
- Many predators don't generally eat human's (don't ask me why, but that is the reality of the chat room). If you enter as a human, and no human-eaters are available, try #1 above to force a confrontation. If that doesn't work, then you're out of luck for the moment. Either wait around and hope for another predator, or politely come back later.
- Don't be too pushy: Just because a predator is their, they may not be looking for a meal, but rather simply watching - and they're courteous enough to announce their presence, instead of hiding out as a Lurker.
- Be courteous: If another predator is about to eat its prey, and both are having fun at it; please let them finish before you decide to make a meal of the other predator. Don't be too quick to disrupt other's fantasies.
- If there is a lot of prey looking to be eaten and only one or two predators; please don't eat the predators unless they are there as prey, or you're following up from an earlier encounter.
- Don't rush the scene: If there is a lot of action going on, then gulping down your prey quickly, so that you can counter another's attack, is usually okay. Otherwise, take your time, giving your prey at least one or two chances at a reply before meeting your stomach. Remember, they are only there for the enjoyment of the experience. Simply saying "I grab the prey and gulp it down, where it dissolves in my stomach" is fun for nobody.
- Don't tease: If a prey comes by that wants to be eaten, and you're not at all interested; and you know that nothing they do will change your mind; please tell them right away. Many visitors to the chat room are short on time, simply looking for some quick role playing before moving on. Please don't waste their time; it will only drive them away in frustration, possibly never to return. Politely appologize and let them get on with life. It is then up to them to do what they wish.
