What is "Bad Roleplay"?

There are several bad roleplay behaviors common to many RPGs. They are often employed by those new to forum roleplaying games. This is because these things are specific to roleplay, some to forum roleplay. It’s no wonder newcomers don’t know all the ropes yet. However, bad roleplay also may come from experienced players. While bad roleplay may seem harmless, it is at best irritating to other players. At worst, it’s against your RPG’s rules. Some forum roleplaying games ban these behaviors specifically. Other games rely on the “tacit assumption” that bad roleplay is never okay.

Bad roleplay concepts may be different according to games, styles, and groups of forum roleplaying games. What is “powerplay” at one RPG is referred to as “godmoding” elsewhere. There are many different types of "poweplay"/"godmoding" and it is best to avoid them whenever possible.
