The World Forum is where people would go to request RPs with other people. And you do realize, you don't HAVE to just do dungeon runs and try to level up and stuff. Nobody is forcing you to try and level up; hell, if you play casual style, stats are entirely optional. Nobody will tell you what you should or shouldn't do with your character on the RP; you just need to do it. If you want to do character development with someone, then just ask them or something.
Requesting Rp’s and developing a character are two different things. Similar but different. We understand we don’t HAVE to do dungeons and level up and things like that, Cloud wasn’t saying you or anyone else was. But if it is an option don’t you think a board just for plots would appropriate? That way you don’t have people constantly asking to thread with them, since – as sites get bigger and more people start to join – staff normally make it a rule not to pester people about threads in the cbox. Most members find it rather annoying to be bombarded with questions about making/joining a thread or even just ignore those who ask. Plus, with the thread limit people who do respond to the member asking will probably be unable to help them with their rp rut due to being in the one thread limit.
