WHO ARE WE?
What is RPC?
RPC stands for "Roleplay Central Database." We are a database with hundreds of writers posted on our unique "List." At our core, our List is what makes us us, but we have expanded through the years to offer an active Discord server and several other interactive activities.
What is RPC's core vision?
RPC was created to make sure that everyone has a voice. We are a group of writers that believe in literature, in quality storytelling, and in letting a story tell itself. Everyone has a tale to tell, we just want to help writers find each other in a collaborative effort to let that tale be told.
Terms and Privacy
Under Review and Update
Our general site rules are currently under review and are being updated. There may be items below that no longer apply to the site, and if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact the admins by
And please, always remember the gold rule - RESPECT
The Administrators' expectations of respect includes not using expletives when contacting an Administrator; accepting all decisions made by the Administrators concerning conflicts; and general courtesy while on the forums.
The Administrators' understanding of harassment as mentioned in Section VII(d)(i) includes using terms that are widely found to be offensive (racial slurs, derogatory terms, etc.; in an Out-Of-Character context) after being asked to cease.
Members and Administrators should understand that, as per Section VI(c), all Members have submitted their information willingly onto a Public List; and in contacting another Member or being contacted by someone who may or may not be a Member, they are entering contact with one another willingly. If any conflict occurs during personal communication, the Members should take measures to prevent an escalation of conflict. The provision of Section V and Section VII(a)(i) should only be made a last resort.
*Administrators reserve the right to review and change these Policies as required. Policies will be published in this text file with any recently changed lines marked by an asterisk (*).
All applications that are properly completed are accepted.
Amendments to or removal of a member's listing should be requested by e-mail to [email protected]
New listings will be starred on the List for a period of one (1) week from entry into the system.
Information in the Application will be entered at the Database Manager's discretion, using the following guidelines.
Conflict between members is to be reported to an Administrator as deemed necessary for the resolution of the dispute.
Members engaged in a conflict should make every effort to excuse themselves from both the conversation and situation to prevent prolonging and escalating the conflict.
The Administrators will review any conflict that happens on-site and will follow the steps outlined in Section VII(d) as necessary.
The website admins run required annual activity checks in January. Why do we do this? We do this to ensure that all of our members are up-to-date, active, and all their contact information is correct. During these checks all members will receive an email during which they will:
State they want to remain on The List, or be removed from The List
Make any changes or updates to their listing that they desire
Apply to any new features of The List
If members do not reply to the Activity Check on time then they will be removed from The List. Removed members information is kept for a few months after the Activity Check just in case they are away for any reason and wish to be re-added to The List on their return.
Responsibility of the Members
All Members are required to read and comply by the Policies of the Site as outlined here.
All Members are responsible for maintaining the accuracy of their information on the List. This includes keeping any links to personal roleplaying websites updated.
Amendments to a Listing are to be e-mailed to the admins at [email protected].
Members who submit their information to the site are doing so by their own personal choice and recognize that the List is one that may be accessed by Members and Non-Members alike.
(*)All members are required to submit a link to a personal website that details their own roleplaying preferences, or submit a short blurb in lieu of the website.
Removal from the Mailing List may be requested through an email to the admins at [email protected].
Members should submit accurate and truthful evaluations of any Roleplay partners they have found through the database.
Members are encouraged to link to the site on their personal Roleplay sites using either a direct link or use of a 'Linkback Button' made available on the site.
Suggestions, ideas, complaints, issues or any other matter of positive or negative concern should be brought to the attention of the admins at [email protected].
Responsibility of the Administrators
The Site and/or Administrators are not responsible for the interaction between Members that occurs off-site (i.e. personal e-mails, instant messages, external forums).
At the request of a Member, the Administrators may be requested to look into misconduct if both parties are Members listed on the site.
Depending on circumstances and evidence of conflict (or lack thereof), Administrators reserve the right to deny arbitration.
The site is not responsible for Non-Members who contact Members on the List.
The Administrators may send out a single e-mail with weekly updates, which include new things happening to the site, contests and a listing of new members.
More than one e-mail may be sent if the site is undergoing major changes (i.e. when we switched to the database form).
The Administrators will not remove a member from the List or Forums without due cause.
Reasons for removal include, but are not limited to, extended inactivity, continued on-site harassment of Members, disrespecting Administrators or spamming of the Forum.
If no expected return date was posted with a specific request for Hiatus, the Administrators will regularly make contact with the inactive Member to determine state of the Listing. If no response is received for over one (1) month, the Member will be subject to removal from the List.
Members removed for this purpose will have their Listing kept on file for an additional month for ease of re-introduction if the Member should return and make such a request.
Any Member found to be acting in violation of these Policies will incur a warning, to a maximum of three (3). Once a member has received three warnings, they will enter a three (3) week probation period, which will included revocation of forum privileges and a warning flag on the public List for the information of other Members.
If no infractions occur during the three week probation period, the Member will regain full access to the site.
If the Member in question does incur another infraction, they will be subject to a ban from the Forums and removal from the Site.
How old is RPC?
Although we've changed our name throughout the years, Roleplay Central has been around
since early 2011.
What does RPC have to offer?
At this time, RPC offers: The List, Gold List, Post-a-Plot, RP101, and is always in the process of new exciting additions. Similarly, our Discord offers: general chat, writing questions, personal and group advertisements, weekly prompts, and daily questions meant to expand the way you think about your writing.
What is the Gold List?
The Gold List is our elite list of writers. They have all been vetted through our system on an individual basis. Each writer is 18+, has an open mind, and put forward 2-3 samples to be evaluated by a panel of anonymous judges. Each judge bases their decision on a set criteria including technical skill, sample content, the characterization within the sample, and the judge's opinion for the overall feel of the samples which are also submitted to the judges anonymously. Pending approval, the writer is then placed on our Gold List, noted on The List on the RPC Website, and given a special [rpgold] tag on our Discord server!
Sounds great, how do I join?
To join, fill out the form here
How do I log in?
You don't! RPC works on a database system, meaning you apply, we post your information, and that's it! You're done! There's no account to log in to, just your "listing" posted on our site for hundreds of other writers to see.
How do I update my listing?
Either fill out this form or email the administrators directly at [email protected] Please remember to be as specific as possible: the more accurate your listing is, the better the quality of writers that can respond to your posting!
Is there an age limit?
We prefer all of our members to be at least 15+. Many of our members have an 18+ tag attached to their name, indicating that they are above the age of eighteen and prefer to write with other members in the same age range. Additionally, please keep in mind that all laws are US-based and read this link to protect yourself if you tend to write darker themes!
What are bannable offenses?
First and foremost, RPC is a safe space for everyone to be themselves. Bullying, belittlement, and harassment of our members calls for immediate removal from our Discord, our List, and all other programs associated with our site. Breaking our rules or the terms of agreement you accepted when you signed up is also cause for disciplinary action to be taken. This list is by no mean exhaustive, but provides a good overview as to how we protect our members.
