What constitutes "done right"? Every individual has their own style of play so even if they -were- lore abiding, another person may not like it all for the simple fact that they chose that style of play.
Example: Dragons. So many people wince when they see that word in someone's player profile or if overheard in someone's role play. Most of the time people will shun them once read. What if they actually put time and effort into their story only to not find anyone to back their storyline because of a stereotype?
I've seen my fair share of terribad RPers, even RPing as generic civilians, but I think that as a server we need to be less quick to judge. Break out of our cliques to introduce yourself to someone trying to initiate their story. If there's anything I've learned over all my years of role play, is that the story ALWAYS evolves. Most of the time it doesn't even turn out the way you expect, and you're interaction with a stereotype could be the factor that makes or breaks someone's character. Your involvement could teach a bad role player to learn more and become a better player, and improve on their story. You could turn a fantastic role player into something fun that could possibly turn into a server event.
What say you? Are you the kind of person to shun a player because of their chosen race? Or do you encourage the possibility of something great?
