Well, I am seeing a lot of this shit:

ME: /me punches you in the face once.
VICTIM: /me falls to the ground, hurt.
ME: /attempt run away from the hurt man
And he succeeds.

Here would be my way of RPing a punch to the face.

ME: /me raises his fist, slamming it into your nose forcefully.
VICTIM: /me clasps his nose, dropping to his knees, teeth gritted.
ME: /me spins around, taking off around the corner.

See how a little bit of harmless detail can improve your RP? I've found out that you are more likely to get people to not complain in /b, whine about PG or MG when it's not, if you detail your /me's and /do's, as well as use proper grammar and punctuation. Here are a few more situations that could come up:

NOOB WAY

ME: /me stabs you
VICTIM: /me dies

GOOD WAY

ME: /me jams his 4" Combat Knife into your neck, covering your mouth as he does so.
VICTIM: /me gargles on his own blood in his airway, choking to death.

NOOB WAY

ME: /me runs you over
VICTIM: /me gets crushed

GOOD WAY

ME: /me slams on the accelerator, ramming the front bumper into your spinal chord.
VICTIM: /me collapses to the ground, in some state of paralysis.

Now, this doesn't always have to be about combat, you know.

NOOB WAY

ME: /me sits down

GOOD WAY

ME: /me glances around him, taking a seat on the wooden park bench.

NOOB WAY

ME: /me resists

GOOD WAY

ME: /me resists by (insert detailed action here)

Try it, it might work. Was bored, so I made this. Hope you like.

Detail is what separates heavy RP from light RP.

Haha I always do that when I sit down. :D

/me leans back and sits down on the chair.
(Followed by /sit)

/me places his hands on the armrests and pushes himself up from the chair to stand up.

Can't explain how much of a difference detail makes in anyone's roleplay.

Re: Guide to Get People to RP with You

I find that if your too descriptive it can get boring and seem like your trying to impress people. So yeah, follow this guide but also don't go too overboard, also if a noob is roleplaying in the ways shown above why not give him a quick lesson in roleplay than flaming him.. seen many a noobs feelin' bad because someone's flamed them. KEEP IT POSITIVE =]
