Where Anyone is Possible
Your profile is the place where you can get really creative with your character, and express who they are using a variety of media. At the same time it is an aggregation of different activities you have performed across the site. Together, these two elements allow you to make your profile the ultimate artistic representation of your characters soul.
The following are the different sections of the profile explained.
Profile Questions: A series of simple questions designed to help you shape the character that you are creating. Most of them are optional, and if you choose to leave them blank they will not show up on your profile.
Profile Picture: This is a visual representation of who your character is. It can be either an actual rendering of them, or a symbol that stands for them, like an emblem, or a flag. A profile picture is required as it helps to cut down on the creation of automatic spam accounts.
Species: This is a drop down list that allows you to choose one of 9 broad species categorizations that your character falls into. If selected, your character will be placed in a directory with other members of that species group, so that you can find one another more easily. You will also have a label attached to your profile picture, indicating your species category affiliation. This is an optional question however, and if you leave it blank, or choose N/A you will not be added to a group or have a tag affixed to your picture.
Once you are done with the initial profile creation process you will find that you have a lot of customization options. You will be able to return to your profile page at any time and work on it by clicking the “Profile” link on the top Nav bar.
On your profile you will find different sections, represented as boxes on the screen. These can be moved around the page by hovering your mouse over the header line, and then simply clicking, and dragging it across the page. Note: While most boxes can be moved, some are designed to remain in place.
Top Left: This is your basic bio information, including links to all of the activities that you have participated in. You will also find a “My Stat” box below this, which contains points that you have earned, and the level that you have achieved, due to activity you have performed on the site.
My Friends: A list of characters you have friend connected with. You can send a friend request from any characters profile. This is less a show of actual “friendship” between characters, as it is a way to open direct lines of communication for roleplay.
My Music: You can add music and a playlist to your profile, which can be optional, or which can auto play when someone visits it.
Latest Activity: This is a list of everything that you have recently done on the site. At the top you will see a text box where you can type a message, which will appear on the homepage of the site in the activity feed. This message can then be replied to from the activity feed.
Text Box: This is a box you can use to do pretty much whatever you want. Many people use it to write out more detailed background information about their characters. You can also add photos, videos, and animated gifs to this box if you desire.
My Photos: A slideshow of all of the pictures that you have uploaded to the site.
Comment Wall Roleplaying
This is one of the most common ways that people interact on RolePages.com. Your comment wall is a place where people can come to leave messages on your profile. Often these will be messages from other characters, who will actively engage you in an interactive story, as if they were visiting your home, or lair.
Example: *Walks up to you and smiles.* Hello there, my name is Joseph, what is yours?
You can then react by clicking the “comment back” link, which will allow you to leave a comment in reply on their wall. In this way you can engage in an ongoing back and forth conversation and interaction between your two fictional characters. “View Thread” will then show you the entire stream of that interaction.
