It's unfortunete that neither Blizzard nor the community will enforce RP rule sets. I don't play on an RP server, but I'd like to try one out some day. I play games for the same reason I read books, to get lost in a story. WoW presents a unique opportunity to both participate and get lost in a story. By failing to enforce RP rules, that opportunity is squanderedThis is not because Blizzard lacks the time and resources to cater to a minority (They have aptly demonstrated their ability to do so with end game raid content), but rather lacks the will in this case. At the end of the day, Blizzard sees the RP community as non-critical. WoW will survive with or without RP.The onus, then, falls on us: the community. There are many websites, forums and blogs that exist solely to cater to the sub-sections of the wow populace, such as Maintankadin for the paladin tanking community. Why not a site for the RP community? A place where they could meet and discuss ideas. If such a site and forum existed, It would be possible for the more dedicated role players to communicate and organize. Those who wanted to rebuild a strong community which enforced its standards could agree on a server, make it their own with standards of their choosing, and take up the challenge where Blizzard has failed.
