This has been a problem since the dawn of RP addons. People packing waaaaay too much stuff into fields that don’t need it.
MRP at least gave you a very small box for your ‘currently’ and instructed you to keep it short. It would even cut off currently’s that were too long in the tooltip. TRP2 did no such thing and gave you a huge box, so of course tons of people dropped their entire profile in there so their tooltip fills your entire screen every time you mouse over them.
I’m guilty of just filling the glances and leaving my description blank on alt characters and profiles. They’re an easy way to quickly point out the key features of my character. I can always go and fill in the description afterwards. I like them because it makes me think “What are the 5 most distinct visual features I have?” and work from there.
Similar to TRP2 though, you have people dumping their entire fanfiction in a single glance.
Frankly I dislike long TRPs full stop. My general rule is if I have to start scrolling down, it’s too long. About three paragraphs is more than enough to describe what you look like. And I don’t have the patience to read about orbs and hourglass figures reworded about a hundred times while I’m midRP.
I know some people like to sit and read long profiles, but I’m too practically minded. I always view profiles as something that needs to be concise since it’s most likely going to be opened and read in the middle of RP.
