Not at all. RPG offers customizable profiles to our members is to allow them full (yet safe) flexibility when creating their profiles. The placeholders are there for your convenience, but by no means do we suggest or expect for any placeholder to be used. If you have an idea for a placeholder, though, or a suggestion to make one of them better, please let us know!

The coloring of character names is used to show users who deserve special recognition. Below is a short list of only a few colors available to use. There are many more badges and colors to be acquired, so start collecting them!

The Role-Players Guild is proud to say that while we may resize uploaded images, we strive to never destroy the quality of the images uploaded to our site. Unfortunately, the large number of high quality images can easily take up a lot of space in terms of data storage. We allow our users to upload up to 12 images for each character, but if they want to upload more images, we ask that they contribute to the cost of the data storage.

It should also be noted that RPG considers ourselves a website for writers. While image galleries and editing may be a fun side to the Role-Play world, RPG does not consider them particularly necessary to the building of a writer's abilities. RPG members are also encouraged to use other free image hosting providers and link to them if they cannot afford our paid memberships.

One way to show support for RPG is to send in donations or purchase a paid membership. If you are not logged in, you can make an anonymous donation. However, if you log in and make a donation, you will receive a Donation badge. Each of these badges allow you to change the color of the name of any one of your characters to green. Donations of $100 USD or higher receive Large Donation badges, allowing you to use a green name with a glow around it.

Otherwise, you can log in to learn more about purchasing a paid membership.

Tell us! If you are logged in, you can file a report to our staff. Please include as much detail as you can and if you can re-create the error, the steps to do so. Also, we may ask you to Email us to give us more details.
