#2: Keep an ear open for ANYTHING, everywhere you can
As an independent RPer, you don't have the safety net of fellow guildmates to remind you of events that may be happening, or simply have no events of your own to attend. Therefore, it is up to you to keep your ear to the ground in as many places as you can. Don't snub fringe RP/OOC channels that your friends aren't in, rotate every so often between the ones in active use. Look on these forums, look on the main ones, look on specific fleet pages.

A side note: In a crowded RP zone, say Deep Space Nine Quarks #2 for example, it is better to watch the text bubbles over people's heads than to try and keep up with a local RP channel that is moving at warp 10.

I will get back to you in a few days when I finish reading that first post.
