Welcome to deviantRolePlay
DRP is a group here on deviantART that is dedicated souly to the Role Players and Role Play lovers of the deviantART community. We're here to express our love of the play and help others find like minded people to Role Play with. The founder Bones is a seasoned Role Player herself and felt there wasn't enough love of the sport to go around for everyone so thus deviantRolePlay was created ^^
..:: How To Join ::..
Just click the Join button near the top and fill out the questionnaire below. All the answers are in the rules journal, which is here: deviantroleplay.deviantart.com…

Paraphrase IN YOUR OWN WORDS what these mean.
What's the password?
..:: Who Can Join ::..
Anyone can ^^ We would love to have Role Players of all different levels here in DRP
..:: What Do You Role Play Here ::..
Anything you want darling >;3 As long as it doesn't get to out of hand and sticks within the usual deviantART TOS
..:: Can We Use OC's ::..
Absolutely ^^ Don't feel pressured to use an original character that's native to the series you wish to Role Play, get creative and bring your own characters into the mix and see where it goes!
..:: What Can We Contribute Here ::..
Anything goes ^^ If you Role Play better through Fan Art go for it! On the other hand if you prefer Written Stories all the more power to yea >;3 And of course if you're anything like our founder Bones and you prefer comments or notes then please feel free to start a blog entry with the information and let everything go from there ^^
On the other hand if you simply want to show off some of your OC's then please feel free to do so to ^^ We have folders that everything goes into but everything is featured >;3 The folders are there to make lives easier if the one looking for something in particular doesn't want to rumage through the featured folder to find it
..:: Is There A Limit ::..
Yes, just a little bit. With the blog entries we'd ask that you please not double post. For example, if you posted a blog already and wish to post another please wait until someone else has posted one before posting again. People posting the same thing over and over are limited to posting the exact same thing every two weeks if they must. This is so people don't feel like the group and the inboxes are being spammed. This rule also includes advertising your own role play groups.
Regarding blatent rude behaviour or "flaming". As of this day, Thursday October 17th at 1:33am this rule is official. From this moment forth I as the Founder implement the rule that if anyone is caught or we the admin receive word of a member being blatantly rude or behaving in a way with other users that is uncalled for then the admin have the right to step in within the bounds of the DA TOS and deal with the offending user(s) at their discretion. How it is handled is up to each individual staff member.
Please make sure to keep yourself up to date on the groups rules which can be found here: deviantroleplay.deviantart.com…
Due to dA TOS, any post explicitly seeking sexual conversation or RP is prohibited and will be removed immediately. We apologize for this; while many of you follow the group rules in your posts, it seems this isn't good enough anymore. Deviant Art has already removed several such posts in this group, and we would rather not get in trouble.
We do apologize for this. If you can find a way to ask for or insinuate it, as in the example below, good luck.
Hello! I am looking for ______ RP with ______ characters. I prefer romance and if you are okay with doing a little more than romance, I would love that! Please note me for more info.
These are now official rules and posts found to be in violation of them will be removed and the poster notified. Sorry for any inconvenience guys n' gals.
..:: Affilation ::..
To affiliate a group or club of your own with DRP simply go to your groups page, look for the "Affiliate" button near the top and input our groups name "deviantRolePlay" and your request should be automatically accepted ^^
:..:: There's a chat room?! ::..
Yep~! Thanks to the lovely DarkAncientLight the group has a chat room for those of you who would rather use an IM feature for role play ;D The link is right here guys n' gals: chat.deviantart.com/chat/TheDR…
..:: We can use the blog?! ::..
Yep~! The blog is OPEN to all members of deviantRolePlay to post in for anything role play related ^^ It's better than leaving a comment on our front page as through the blog the whole group can see it and not just the admin ;D
Also, if you'd like to advertise your own group or website through the blog please feel free to do so ^^ So long as it's role play related and you are a member of DRP the blog is yours to use as you need it!
Please be advised though of the rules regarding blog posts. Any posts found to be in violation of those rules will be removed and the poster notified. Sorry for any inconvenience folks.
If there are any problems with the group, you have some suggestions or concerns or you merely want to leave feedback please feel free to contact the admin and we'll take care of it ^^
