My very first character was a priest on a roleplaying server, at the end of my 2nd day when I made it to Orgrimmar I was trying to get some bags made and the guy who I was asking kept demanding I RP (in whisper/trade). I said I had a long day, I'm really tired, can I please just get the bags so I can sleep. But oh noooooooooo, that just ruffled the feathers even worse and he put me on ignore, so back to trade I went, wtb bags pst. Then I get whispers, only they all are urging me to RP, none of them are tailors.Frustrated, I give up. The next day I go out to Durotar to do some loose end quests, bump into a sham who looks like he's on the same quest. I whisper him let's group for x quest and throw the invite. But he was deep in character of course and wanted to do it the long way, after standing still for a good few minutes he says to me... "greetings friend, such and such of such and such asked that I come to this place to such and such blah blah blah to honor my yada yada yada would you lend me your yackety shmack that we might spill the blood of these so and sos for the glory of hat". To which I replied "*nods*". So again I get the hate "[you're not even trying]" (square brackets denote things said out of character from memory, everything not in brackets was sposed to be part of the roleplay).Having done a fair bit of levelling in beta, I'm by now pretty fed up because there's weeks/months of levelling in front of me and if I have to put on my robe and wizard hat every single time I need to kill 8 boars and would just like a hand to do it, this is going to be more work than fun.So I went to a PVE server where people seemed to be considerably more laid back and there I stayed.

Sounds like a problem with the server not being a right fit for you and not an actual fault with the server. . .

Good for you. You should play on the server that suits you best. If you don't want to roleplay then don't play on a RP server. That helps the roleplayers who do want to roleplay to get a higher concentration of people who share their interests also, so everyone is happier :)
