I'd make a joke, but this sounds semi-serious. Any way I can help, I mean, I'm not a woman, so I wouldn't really get messaged. Any other ways though...

Also, due to the fact you said new members and bad grammar, wont like, half the population of RP Guild be flamed for being a possible suspect?

And what other websites was he on? What were his usernames on there?
There is a predator on rp guild. Check this for more info!
I've witnessed this kind of thing beforehand, it's not really fun even watching it.
I once RPed with a group of people where one of the males in the group persisted and confessed to one of the female members that he loved her. He got pissed and started calling her a liar when she said she loved him, but not in that manner.
Turns out he was mentally ill and even threatened one of the girl's friends when she wanted to let the guy's college headmaster know he had those type of problems.
Please be careful, don't trust the types that try to offer you candy i.e sudden sympathy out of nowhere when they've never even held more than a single conversation with you.
Clearly Sophis was just pointing out the signals and signs we or the females on the site should be aware of if ever contacted. Nice move.

Geez..that's really scary. I don't get why anyone would even wanna do that. I'm not a girl, but I'll do my best and what I can :/
I want a sig but I'm not talented enough to make one waaah ;~~~;
I remember what he said to me...his username is now -snip- and he asked Killas for her skype info...its like he knew i didnt have a skype account or something lucky i knew someone who had the same person do the same with the same username...i would warn other people on different roleplays sites about him im going to do the same to keep others safe
At any rate, the admins are not "a bunch of morons". I may not have seen Contra say anything about this publicly, but I know she ok'd this news thread, and she and Mahz are probably the ones handling most of the legal side of this - and therefore have more important things to do than hang around on the forum all the time, especially when there are already staff making sure that the member base knows about the situation.
And FYI, RPG has some of the best staff you will ever encounter on the internet. From all the things they do for us, to even just the way they speak to us - it's clear just how close they are to their member base and how much they actually care about us as human beings - and that's certainly more than you'll get from most websites.
So just be thankful that the RPG staff are not only working so hard to get this guy, but also that they're doing it to keep everyone here safe, and not for some dumb reason like concerns about website popularity like I'd expect from any other site.
Obviously, I am not part of the administration staff. Most of you probably have little idea of who I am if any. With that being said, it is nice to see this thread finally going up in a category that might be taken seriously. This is very serious matter far beyond than most of you could understand unless you work in the field, i.e. Social Work, Psychology, or Legal. And before anyone thinks I'm any more of a schmuck than I really am, I am in the legal field. I work for state. And I've dealt with cases dealing with child pornography, and internet dissemination of such material.
On any accord, I noticed that while Sophi did mention to not give out any personal information whether it be contact information through Skype or some other medium he failed to mention one key point. It has been suggested to me that this creeper requests nude photographs or other sexual acts. Whether it is this individual or otherwise, do not provide naked photographs to anyone if you are a) under the age of 18 or b) dealing with someone under the age of 18. If you fall under category A, despite being a victim you can be held responsible for disseminating child pornography. Would any prosecutor willingly put a victim through the process of defending that act? Perhaps not, but it isn't always up to the one working the case. If you are over the age of 18, you can be charged and most likely would be charged with disseminating pornographic material to a minor.
As the administration has already pointed, such behavior is a bad idea regardless of what the reason this creeper or any creeper may have come up with at the time. As it is, if whomever the administration is in contact with assuming they find the guy it will be a pain in the ass for them to prosecute the guy effectively given it is quite possible he is mental. Dealing with things of this nature of the internet is very difficult from a legal standpoint.
And take offense if you'd like, but everyone is responsible for this debauchery. Those who knew about this guy on from other forums and failed to do more than take care of their forums. Those who encountered him and failed to report him. And us as user for not making sure the younger users were aware that such things are bad news. It was expressed through the IRC that a lot of our users come from broken homes or homes with parents that are working hard to provide for their children so they don't have the time to educate their children about internet etiquette or lack there of. So since it hasn't been stated previously, I'd like to make it clear. Do not under provide nude photographs of yourself over the internet. It is dangerous. Even if you think you know the person. Even if you think it is the only person that is getting those photos. Any photographs or videos recorded on Skype are also kept on Skype servers on their own databases and servers. And quite frankly, it is a pain in the ass for attorney's to get their hands on that evidence even with subpoenas. So just don't do it.
If this post irks any of you, delete it. But we all must play an active role in dealing with this debauchery not from a forum point of view but as a societal measure to keep these predators away from the youth they endanger.
As Salaam Alaikum, Greetings, and Namaste,
As it readily apparent my name is Dorian Gregory. I have been role playing for nearly fifteen years using both forums and other mediums. My humble beginnings started in a gaming chat room on Blizzard.net. From there I discovered probably the most impressive setting constructed by any group of individuals on DesertRealm.com. Now I spend most of my time working on finishing my trilogy of novels. The first book is in the editing stages and I have just finished chapter two of the second. Of course, I would love to get them published. I suppose one could say that is a goal of mine.
As a role player I often prefer to maintain at least a standard of High Casual or Advanced style. While many people prefer the game/fun aspect of role playing I use role playing as a way to maintain and improve my ability and vocabulary. While I will not specifically avoid one-on-one role playing I am generally more of a group participant with the exception of the Arena, which I would like to get more involved with. Genre provides no particular restrictions on me as I have wide array of interests. Science fiction is a large genre to cover including a plethora of sub-genres. I try to participate in a variety of threads from fan-fiction to fantasy, medieval, futuristic and most other sub-areas found in the Science Fiction genre.
As far as acting as a Game/Dungeon Master goes, I have not had much luck. I tend to be overly verbose or too tedious to read. But I have given it a shot and on other forums I have done so successfully. With that being said I generally avoid the position; however, that is not to say that I would not be making the attempt in the future.

To the person who said that half the population of the Guild might be flamed -- if you use your eyeballs properly, you'll see that this person doesn't post. He only PMs/VMs people. He has no established presence on this site and anyone who actively roleplays or posts here is not the culprit.
