arrianna said:ICC, I HAVE described the techniques for my cooking. I have even given the number of time I cook each part of the recipe. If they cannot take the time, as Sanji mentioned, to discover if theirr criticism has any bearing on reality by a simple google search of similar recipes and comparing them with my descriptions then they are wasting my time.
The way it has been done does mean that the chef cannot cook. Consistency is the foremost importance in running a restaurant and the things they are choosing to criticize are not the "unfamiliar" ingredients but basic everyday techniques.
This is not me throwing a fit because I am being criticized. I expect that. This is me being pissed off because the hard work I put into making a realistic fun RP is being trampled on by someone who is imposing actions on my character and trivializing the work I do. I spend hours coming up with new dishes for this RP. Discuss the bloody dish instead of insisting the character doesn't know basic cooking techniques.
Seriously, it isn't fun at that point and I have no desire to do it again unless some type of reasonable guidelines can be come to to keep it from happening anymore. Or would any of you like me to judge your dishes in an RP by informing you you burned them all?
I have to agree with you. It's just taking things a bit too far and removing the fun. Your "burning" comment is totally true. It can be done to every chef in every RPG. But it's not, because it's taking it too far, and it removes the whole fantasy fun element.
Do we really need to create JUDGING GUIDELINES or can we just be nice? Because, if need be, I'm more than willing to be the fun-eliminator and make judgment a pain for everyone.
