When you walk into a public scene in a public place, sit down next to my character, and start sighing, being oblivious, and emoting about being bored while ignoring everyone else in the room you make me want to punch you through the internet.
I'm not talking about people who walk in and observe a scene before making an emote. That's fine.
This is not the you show, no one is going to drop everything and pay attention to you when we're busy having fun just because your character walked in and sighed. And no, I'm not going to respond to your second or third sigh either because you are attention-whoring yourself out for peanuts. It's like your character is too much angst for one internet. Stop doing that.
When you sit there in your emotes and complain that no one ever RPs with you it makes me want to feed you to wild bears. Yes, wild bears, or even cannibalistic furbolgs if there is such a thing. You're making yourself look like a grand !@#$ing idiot and jumping up and down on my last nerve. This behavior will not make you popular and loved, it is just going to make people hate you.
I wish you would get out of your bubble and interact with others. You are sorely mistaken on your value to this game, our night was not made when you walked in. In fact most of us have no idea who you even are and sitting there being oblivious and OOCly complaining via emotes is not correcting that.
You don't need to be the center of attention all the time and if you give others attention most will reciprocate. It's just that simple.
So you're sitting beside me, not interacting, just sighing and I'm ignoring you. I'm playing with everyone else, but not you. And the other RPers may be doing the same thing too, ignoring you. I'm not ignoring you because because you are on another server and I can't see your MRP (I don't read MRPs most of the time anyhow). I'm ignoring you because I'm not going to encourage you to use that method to initiate interaction with me.
I'm gonna whip out my clue-by-four and tell you a magic word that will get you roleplay. Ready? Ready?
"Hello." <---- Magic word. Seriously, take a fracking hint. Say something like hello to other players ICly and most of them will say hello back, and then you have RP. You can even introduce yourself. It's not so bad, really. Then react to what happens, not to what you want to happens, who knows, you might even have fun.
Invest in some Nike Air Pump Balls, have a little confidence and say hello. The worst that can happen is someone tells you to go away, in which case they're an !@# and you probably don't want to RP with them anyhow.
You'll probably be surprised just how many people will RP with you if you extend the olive branch. But sitting around sighing and complaining just makes everyone else around wish you would fall off this game.
TL;DR: Say hello, get roleplay. Simple.
