As others have said, chat is very hit or miss. Several observations, in no particular order:
- Depends who’s in already. Everyone has preferences, favorites and people they avoid. So people will deliberately enter chat when they see someone in there they’ve enjoyed speaking with in the past, or had a good RP with, or they may avoid someone they find irritating for some reason. Nobody is everyone’s drug of choice. I’m not suggesting camping out all day, but pop in and hang out for twenty minutes while watching tv or something. Likely a guy or two will enter specifically to talk to you. If not, bounce and try again an hour later. Just BE in chat if you’re in chat. It’s really irritating to go into chat to speak with someone, say “Hi”, and not get and answer for twenty minutes because they’re not actually there, they just have it open on something they’re not looking at.
- This is a niche site, spread across time zones all over the world, so there’s no reliable time it’s going to be active. Certain things, like the non-sex RPGs on “Saturday Night” (American Time) are a big draw. Other things, like the times VV and Kitty set up wrestling, or the times certain young ladies have announced in advance they’d be available for a gang rape RP, have drawn big crowds as well.
- I have had good luck developing relationships with people who’s company and RP styles I enjoy, and meeting up with them by prearrangement to RP at set times, essentially online dates. If someone knows they can rely on you to not be flakey and show up on time with high-effort RP writing, they’ll be more likely to do this with you. If you haven’t done them already, the “kinkslist” and “about me” blurbs are really helpful, if they’re detailed, in helping people gauge what you’re into and whether or not they might click. If you have an idea for a specific RP you’d like to do, or discussion topic, you can promote it ahead of time and drum up interest.
- If there’s someone you’d like to get to know, maybe you liked their story or enjoy their posts or whatever, try inviting them to meet you in chat at a specific time.
That’s about the best I’ve got. “Be the change you wish to see in the chat”, as Gandhi likely would have said, if he were still alive and into sketchy rape-kink porn. 🤷♂️
