This month, the RPC Teaching Center Mods are once again going to help you become more knowledgeable about feedback! Providing and accepting feedback is one of the more difficult aspects of roleplaying; understanding feedback will help you become a better role-player as well!
Instead of providing you a standard post to leave feedback on, this month will be more interactive, allowing you to both give and receive one piece of feedback in our very own Feedback Round table


TASK
This month, your task is unique. As this is a round table style activity, each person who participates is responsible for creating one role play post of 250-750 words and one set of constructive feedback of at least 5 sentences that addresses each of the bolded aspects of the guidelines below.


FEEDBACK GUIDE

Here in the RPC, we focus less on grammar and spelling, and more on world-building, character development, descriptions, and interaction, all of which are described below.

World building - How the universe the characters are in is portrayed. Are the details clear? Can you imagine the world in your mind?

Character development- describes who a character is. Characters should have depth and have a story. A character should not be perfect and have both flaws and strengths. The way the character is portrayed should be interesting and unique.

Description- A focus on showing the reader rather than telling . The reader should be able to clearly see what is happening, and wording should not be repetitive.

Interaction - the heart of roleplaying. It is what keeps the story moving, and furthers the plot. We suggest responding to at least three elements of previous posts (such as thoughts, dialogue or actions) and providing at least three places that your partner can respond.


RULES
+All HEX and RPC Teaching Center rules apply.
+ All work must be your own work. You may only provide feedback for your assigned post.
+All RP posts and feedback must comply with HEX rules and be constructive.
+ Winners will be randomized from all eligible entries.
+ All sign ups must be completed with your respective post in the hidden replies thread by September 15th
+All feedback must be completed and placed in the hidden replies thread by September 30th
+All RP Posts must be 250 and 750 words.
+All Feedback must be at least 5 sentences and address each of the bolded elements.
+ If you have any questions, please post in this thread or owl Beth.

I'm a bit confused.

We write a RP post by 15 Sept
we comment on our own RP post by 30 Sept

Or can we post both at the same time? the hidden-reply thread is the same for both parts?

You post your rp before the 15th then we will send each person who Submitted a RP a post to review after that date. You will then have until the 30th to write and submit your feedback. Does that clarify things?

Ahh I see the confusion. I’ve edited it now but it’s that you only need to provide feedback on the post you are assigned. Does that clear things up?

Sorry if this is a silly question— is there a prompt for the RP post? Or can it be about anything?

This is a nice contest to practice RP skills, thank you.

Can I use any RP post I have made for this or should it be a new one?

@Narcissa-Black While I would encourage you to make a new post for this contest to get the most from it, you are welcome to use a post you've already made, so long as it meets the requirements!

I'm slightly confused about the below. Could somebody please clarify?

@bigfootsbeard That's just the general RPC definition of interaction. Basically did they give their partner something to reply and set or furthered the plot. Does that make sense?

@BiologicallyBeth I think so....so we don't respond with an RP, we just give feedback on if they did or not?

@bigfootsbeard Exactly! You don't have to reply, just give feedback as to how their post fits the criteria!
