I like this name and sub-page, so I linked from the parent Role-Playing Game text. --Msilverstar 04:39, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

This page could really use a separate subsection about Livejournal-style RP. Fandom has created a form and subculture of RP pretty unique compared to how it's done on the rest of the Internet. -Loren Leah 03:25, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

There may be overlap or conflict with my old Celebrity RPG page, not quite sure what to do about that. --msilverstar 07:26, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

So I think this page covers what fans who "RP" are actually talking about? Except they don't call it this. They just call it "RP". Does anyone know more?--aethel (talk) 22:19, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

Yeah, "RP" is this type of roleplaying, as opposed to LARPing, D&D, etc. I have no idea what the best article title would be though. (I probably wouldn't think to look for 'fandom rpg' when looking up this kind of roleplaying, but I'm not sure what I would look up instead. Just 'RP'?) Franzeska (talk) 00:59, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
We could call it Fannish Roleplaying and have a section to explain who uses what terminology and when. "Fandom RPG" gets 26,000 google hits, so somebody is using it.[1]--aethel (talk) 21:15, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
I posted a poll in my DW about the fandom RPG terminology--it is legitimate, but may not be used much any more? or only in certain contexts.[2]--aethel (talk) 02:38, 29 August 2017 (UTC)
