    I have been roleplaying for a really long time... Back on AOL where everyone used to play in public chatrooms. I frequented the Red Dragon Inn a lot. haha... And joined RP guilds. Would love to find fellow AOL-RPers!

    I think I've been roleplaying since... 2005? It's been on and off since then, but more years spent writing than not. Most of that time has been spent managing my own forums, but also a few stints on others to just keep things different and varied if I ran the risk of running out of steam.

    I started roleplaying (badly) in 2000, but got serious and created my first RPG in 2003. So, about 22 years but I had a 15 year long hiatus during that time. During the hiatus, I still thought about my characters and invented little RPs in my head, but never wrote anything down. I'm so happy that I've gotten back into it and wish I had never stopped.

    14 years now! Met my best friend on my very first forum rp too. She was my maid of honor in my wedding this past fall. We would've never met if it weren't for rps

    I've been playing for about ten years. I originally got hooked on a Warriors Cats rp on Wikis by Wetpaint actually, back in the day when they did forum sites.

    Oh my goodness !!! What a question !! Well lets see... I remember America Online... ya know AOL with dial up and that distinctive sound... scrolling thru the chat rooms, both public and private (when I asked in LOL). I remember Rhydin, Red Dragon Inn, and rapid-fire roleplay in those chat room... RP that took so much time away because you *HAD* to be present !!!

    OMG !!! I still have some of the frigging logs from way back then.

    And then came... ProBoard websites for the RPGs. I remember editing the "Logs" so we could post on a site... And I and a partner-in-crime named Olivia ran one called "Skye-The Winged Isle" (StWI) that ran fast and furious for 5, almost 6 years... And then AOL petered out...

    Ummm... was 1993 or 4... so yeah, been around awhile !!!

    I started in 2007 but it's been very on and off... So I can't really say it's been exactly 15 years, I guess. As a cumulative I'd say maybe around 5.
