Ugh, I hate that kind of person. -.- The other RP board I used to go on? Killed dead cuz the admin got a huge chip on her shoulder and suddenly decided that we all had to RP according to her tastes or else. She'd close RPs that ran along themes she didn't like cuz she couldn't join, and she also forced all RPs to be open to everyone.

This was particularly annoying cuz a lot of us were fairly experienced and liked to RP together without some random noob walking in and ruining it. While we did try and make an effort to coach the newbies, we wanted to have at least one or two private RPs where we could relax and enjoy ourselves. But the admin said that it wasn't fair to exclude people cuz of lack of experience, and banned private RPs.

She also made a ridiculous rule stating that every single RP had to have a massive disclaimer posted if it were based on a movie, book or computer game; if you didn't put it in, or posted it and it wasn't to her satisfaction, she'd just delete the RP which was really irritating if you'd just spent hours typing it all out. Eventually, everyone just got sick of her and there was a mass exodus, leaving her with just a few buttlickers and random noobs to RP with. I went back there a couple of years later, and the forum had vanished.
