I have a quick question. When you abbreviate roleplay to "rp", do you say a rp (as if you are saying a roleplay outloud) or an rp (as if you are pronouncing are p)?

When I see the letters "rp" I pronounce is as "are pee", even though I know it means role playing. To be honest, sometimes I don't even like using the term role playing unless if it's between quick chat ways, like the Chatbox or Skype or the like. When it comes to forum posting, I always think of it as creative writing or "short stories" in a sense. But I suppose when you get right down to it, it's still role playing.

Interesting question, Lux.

yay. I made a good. I agree with you, up until the philosophical part about short stories.

I read it as "are pee", so I say an because it sounds better.

Are Pe for me... But often I'm as OCD as heck, and think of it as roleplay and will refuse to write or read it any other way. ^^'
