Stupid question, I know. But how the hell do you RP via Livejournal? I've watched several fo them but I just can't figure them out. Even though I've been RPing for years it's only been with friends through AIM so I guess in some ways I'm a newb.

Many thanks to anyone who can explain this to me.

Nah, s'not a stupid question to me. ^__^

As to how that's done, what typically happens in LJ RPs is that each RPer will get a journal and join an RP community. You and the other members of the group will post up things (sometimes throughout the day) of what is going on in the characters life and interact by using comments. Eh, it's a bit hard for someone as dorky for me to explain... Anyway, not only do you interact through comments with other characters, we also interact on IM-ing progs such as AIM or MSN to do 'RP LOGS,' or what is probably known simply as RPing. xD; Anyway, they're very fun. A bit complicated, but fun once you get the hang of it. ^__^

Yep, and also, people will often post notes to other characters in the community journal. ^^ Behind a cut, etc.

On occasion, scenes will be played out as though via messageboard in comments, which I find awkward, but hey.

So this one, http://www.livejournal.com/community/rpgwolfsrain/ ,is worked out through messageboard comments? I don't understand how you know to make your own post or to simply reply to someone elses.
