Ora the Owlish
Correction: You can't RP in there, either. Not in any intelligent sense. In fact, even idle chat and memes are on the decline. I decided to lurk a bit...It's a dump! Not to be a prude, but I really wish they'd get some moderators in there. I believe the theory that it beats zOMG based on upkeep cost is correct; it's not a complex system, and I assume it requires little upkeep or updating. Maybe that's where zOMG loses out, is in its complexity? You go to Towns, wait for it to load, and that's it. Within thirty seconds or less you've seen all it has to offer. While I took the Sewer-style tutorial, I hear the new version is a confusing wreck...maybe zOMG has limited appeal because it requires some perseverance and/or research and/or intellect?
Not to hate on Towns so badly, but after spending about 20 minutes there, I found my faith in humanity on a sharp decline. Anyone curious, go ahead and do some research of your own...I'm almost glad Towns is popular, as it all but prevents that sort of dialogue from entering zOMG. Still, though...
I've seen people in Towns adorned as their favorite anime characters and assuming their chosen personas in a role play-type fashion. Albeit with debatable results.
Still, I'd argue that Townies aren't the worst congregation you'll encounter on Gaia. That prestigious title belongs to the Rally. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.
