Roleplaying is similar to writing a story, only there are others writing the story with you.
You create your own character or take an existing one from a popular story or TV show as long as nobody else is using it on that thread. Then you create a scene and a plot with the other characters.
Here's an example roleplay:
User 1: "Sandra cleaned her sore paws and looked out beyond the ocean that threatened to lap at her tail. She desperately wished that she could swim against the waves of the giant blue beast and reach her friend, Miko."

Once one person is done, another person says their piece.

User 2: "Miko examined Sandra from afar. She was a fairly malnourished cat, and he immediately felt sorry for her."

Something like that. Sorry, I haven't RPed in years. But I do remember the rules.
When you want to say something using your real self rather than your character, use paranthesis.
Example:
User 1: (Hey guys, I got to go to dinner. Bye!)
User 2: (Bye, User 1!)

And then later you can use paranthesis to join back.

To join a roleplay, all you need to do is say (Join?) and wait to see if you can join. Sometimes a form needs to be posted and other times you can just join in without waiting for a response.

Roleplays can generally last forever and you can do anything with your character. You can NOT kill off other characters or use them as you use your own.
EXAMPLE OF WHAT YOU CAN'T DO:
User 1: "Sandra ran away from the monster and Miko dodged just in time to see a great big fireball burn the trees."
^ You just controlled two characters (including one that isn't your own) so therefore you may be kicked out of the roleplay. Or you may just be let off with a warning.

I hope this makes sense. I also hope that the rules on WI aren't any different from the ones I used in other sites a few years back.

i get the rules, that what your character says has to be in quotations, and what you say has to be in parentheses, and that you have to use correct grammar and spelling.

Well those are the basics :]
If you want to join an RP, click on the specific RP thread and join it. There is usually a form.

Just enter a form for your character, and then just say something. Say you've got a dog named Sasha, and you ask someone to RP with you. Then when they do, just say something like 'Sasha ran through the field.' or something like that. Hope I helped! =]
