When I see RPers in the wild, it's usually in instance #1. Then it turns in to a dance party, so I hang my head and beam out.
Let's do something about this, then?
Spread the word, tell the RP guilds to look for the highest instance number available at any given time. It doesn't take long to switch instances. Despite some of the reviews I've read from other role players, STO has a lot of potential, just like TR did when it launched. We just need to bring the community together on the same page.
