    This year on DayZRP...

    Well boys, my first like, kinda year on DayZRP(Even though I joined in april) But yeah, this is just a joke video that didn't take me a while to make(although if felt like it) and well, put it this way all jokes in this are jokes and are not meant to be taken seriously. I am a little bit pissy because the final part of the video all the editing didn't save from last night... But I don't care honestly... I mean.. Here is an extract of the sony vegas file So yeah, it wasn't to hard and is just a laugh really... I hope you lot have a happy new year, and I'm looking forward to 2017 on DayZRP.

    General Community....rant?

    Okay, before I get started, this is not targeted at any single person, group or entity. If a direct quote of your's is used, do not take it as a personal attack, its being used as reference. Parental advisory, explicit language may follow. As a PVP centered hostile roleplayer, I am sick of seeing ' roleplay is stale because of hostile roleplayers being bad' or 'will be nice to see hostile roleplay that doesnt end in PVP'. Just stop. One, no one can force you into a PVP encounter without a rule break. Two, if you do not want to roleplay with someone who is hostile, you can do a couple things. You can excuse yourself and log off. You can get a few friends and initiate and put a stop to it, or if you are initiated on, comply. It will be over soon. Roleplay is a two way street, and most of the time so is KOS. PvP doesnt spontaneously break out. Well, if it does its again a rule break. Normally, there is a cause (initation) and effect (noncompliance). If you comply, you get roleplay, or should. If you do not comply you get PVP. Stop blaming the stale roleplay on hostile roleplayers, some of us are rather good, but us good ones dont get roleplay often in return. People recognize our voices, armbands, whatever and usually just run. That pisses us off cause we want to roleplay so we chase your asses down, and initiate. Dont want to roleplay with us? We will force you, or we will kill you due to your own noncompliance. Here we are back to my Guide entitled 'The Art of complying'. If you havent read it, I would highly recommend it instead of blaming PVPers for your shitty attitude. Guess what, I cant kill you if you comply. Its in the rules. They protect you to a point. The rules also state that I must entertain you and you must entertain me. It works both ways, see. I recommend that if you are not getting enjoyment out of any roleplay, hostile or nonhostile, you record and report. Thats what its for. 'But, Thumper, I cant record. My PC is too shitty'. Bullshit. OBS is a free software that has minimal impact on PC performace and you can infact stream to twitch or youtube with 1mb upload speeds. If you still cant record. Get a buddy. Stay with buddy. Have buddy record. The only way we make roleplay great again is by changing attitudes and working together to make it great. If you are unwilling, well I can suggest a few alternatives, but you wont like them. This rant is brought to you by Thumper, scum community member and avid PVPer.

    Man, what a joke. Hell, man I've always said one thing that I don't care what title you have. Co-owner or PR, whatever. I don't even give a shit if you're not doing a thing and sitting back counting fat stacks, but the fact that you're denying people based on "lack of trying." It's not a shocker, I knew I'd be rejected from the git-go because I don't like you. I don't respect you. I'll say it here and outright, you've never done a thing to earn it. I respect Terra even though she doesn't like me. I respect Rolle, I respect Shark, Roman, Conor, and Ellie. Truth is you're a sexist, had I tits and asked you'd of hands down invited me. I've no doubt on that. So go on tell me now, who else did you accept? I don't see any new names on the Stream Team list. In fact do you even look at these accounts and activity? Let me do this for you: Dolhades - No past broadcasts, never once seen streaming besides hosting some interviews, which no longer happened. Carved - No idea, past broadcasts are only Rainbow Six Siege. Not sure if this person streams DayZRP. DansGameDivsion - New streamer? No idea, only one past broadcast. Bizbok - Not streamed since 11/04. Legumester - No past broadcasts. No idea who this is. Huntierw - Last broadcast was 12/02 and has only streamed H1z1. DishesAndWelden - What even is this? 1 Follower? No streams? TotallyNotCow - I don't think Cow even streams yet somehow he's on the stream team? https://www.twitch.tv/team/wolfsteam It's nothing against them but it shows there's no quality control, you aren't judging these people on anything other than friendship. Keep your Co-Owner title and let @Jabba take over as Public Relationships Manager. Sit back and stop sticking a wrench in the gears.

    Thank you very much for your feedback, Storm. However I must refute your position at this point with the following. Do not under any circumstances poke a staff member telling them to do something under threat of negative staff feedback. The public rooms that "needed cleaning up." were roughly 4, it is not a big responsibility of staff to clean up afk users. And then poking me after I had told you to grow up and your reply was "it triggers me" I'd say that I should expect better from an ex-staffer such as yourself but I'd be asking too much.

    Pretty much why we can't have nice things. Just because KoS is allowed does not mean you shouldn't RP. We have S3 set up this way so people can try RPing without being limited by the rules, which is something a lot of the community wanted for a long time. But like I said before, you simply can not trust people when they can just PVP instead. Also, you killed no one in the past weeks on S3, so I don't really know what are you on about.

    @Rose Every time you create your temporary channel, you purposely sort it at the top of everyone else's. I don't why you do it, if it's just some sort of power trip or something, but it comes across kinda snobby tbh. Especially when you make it at the top and then instantly go afk. What's the point? Can't you just use the system like everyone else? Seems like a random and invalid use of your Mod powers to me. I know this is going to seem like a petty af comment, but I really don't care. Feedback V.2: Now you've moved it back up after the feedback in spite. I honestly don't know why you're Mod with that attitude. And since you're thinking it already; yes, I'm an asshole. Annnnnddd, you moved it again. This is embarrassing for staff. Can someone confront her about it soon before she breaks it more?

    Unwelcome poke? You're kidding, right? Rose and Storm do not communicate and suddenly she gets this poke demanding that a small handful of afk users in the TS public channels get moved to afk or she gets negative feedback? Like the Feces powered helicopter, that shit won't fly. Myself and Rose moved the afk users and she was distraught, confused and worried because she had no idea what was going on so I took the matter in to my hands and since he was going to say that to a member of staff, "joke" "meme" "banter" or not it was wrong, so very wrong to do and I will not stand for it because you took a liberty where it was not permitted with someone you did not have that kind of rapport with Rose and then after my post Storm goes full damage control because his little "joke" backfired in spectacular fashion. You're not wrong, I was rude to Storm by telling him to grow up but I have a feeling it was something that should of been said at that very moment, I will not apologize for it either so I'd suggest in future that people should know their boundaries with their fellow community members before pulling a stunt like that. One last thing, it looks awful bad for you to be so blind in defending someone who is utterly in the wrong here. And as always, thank you for your feedback, it will be taken in to consideration.

    what really is an unnecessary post?

    I checked the verdict and it is correct, so it doesn't matter who posted it in the end. But boy do I love the drama threads. Like, half of the people in these threads were like just recently personally pardoned by me from a permanent ban for various rule breaks, and now they take higher moral ground like they know better what is best for the community and how we as staff are shit compared to them and their knowledge of the rules. I will need to rethink those decisions made by me, since many of you clearly are not holding up your end of the deal which was made in the emails when you were brought back. In the meantime I'll just sit here, smile and wave. Smile and wave boys.

    Alright. I have some feedback to give regarding the handling of this report. First of @Mental pulling the logs. If you paid attention to the video that was provided, it was easy to see where the situation was simply done. 50% of the text chat logs were not needed. Also, if you have the lucky combination of a video with the chat logs showing up, you have to use and see these as the time stamp for potential combat log. Just the way you compare kill and connection logs. I gave you the name "Eddie Sorelly" and you couldn't find it because it was "Sorella" ? If you use notepad to check the logs do not get too focused on surnames, especially if you are not working with basic names like "John Smith". Crtl +f - Eddie. You would have found him easily, if not with notepad then with your GM - Tools. I believe that is what @Dusty did. Also Mental: providing the logs for a report, it was your job to call out the combat log and ask for allies (to be seen in the video) of the accused. Not mine. I counted through and including my statement, one of the accused was asked for a detailed POV 5 times. @Speedster 5 times. I know that you need that activity but a 6th time was really not needed at all. With that you line in with the unnecessary posts in a report and cause a cluster-fuck. You and also other GM's looking at that report could have noticed that some of the accused were online on the forum and gained activity in doing your job by temp banning them, like @Alex finally did after a whole while. In this post Dusty luckily notices that the connection logs are very close for being an "accidental" disconnect or whatsoever. He asks a question and requests one of the accused for for more honesty within his statement about disconnecting. The accused proceeded to simply quote his POV. I feel like there could have happened another attempt from the GM team to gain information regarding a potential lie in a report. So request of a GM not really fulfilled and not a single statement/ warning regarding it in the verdict. Last point the verdict. I am not sure which version to start with but as you probably already know there are two: version 1 & version 2. I know there is no content nor outcome changed but grammar. I don't know who was involved in that verdict besides @HebiKotei I know English is not everyone's mother tongue in the team...but fucking hell guys, are you serious? As the team in the back, signing a verdict is like giving your okay, your stamp for this to be published. You clearly let Hebi hanging there. Seeing the amount of mistakes and even the accused name spelled wrong and the already published version being changed afterwards, i find this pretty disappointing. Regarding the content of that verdict, Hebi. I know everyone has her or his own style of writing which I think is pretty important but in the process of the report you could have seen not only the lack of rule understanding but also some lacking English skills. It is on you to word things in simple language and understandable way especially if there are newcomers / newer people involved in a report. Your text is lacking that and structure. Also you single yourself out with wordings like "I'm afraid this really doesn't cut it for RP". You should always appear as a 'we', as a team. Now regarding other content that is simply missing. This is again dedicated not only to Hebi but all people involved in this verdict: you don't give any suggestions in a verdict, with newcomers involved. At this point i'd just like to state: wake up! GM job #1: Simple written examples of a potential scenario, guides and what about your introduced mentor program? You take away someones whitelist because he or she is new but don't support them in showing how it could have been done. @admins: the GM's need more support in the process of writing verdicts, not just because of this single one but also other cases + you have a lot of 'newer ones' working together, they need you.

    Rule 15 - Permanent Death Discussion

    I've said it multiple times, if people want IC actions to have actual consequences, then there should be a perma death rule. Someone that has valid execution rights executes you? Perma. To the people that say "ITS MY CHARACTER MAH CHOICE!!", these people are probably still running with the same character they started with. A person that's been around for 2 years and has been executed about 50 times (example, not everyone is included in this obviously). You have to seriously pause and be honest with yourself, when are you going to make that choice? Probably never. Nothing happens on the server because it's always the same invincible characters that you've executed last night, but hey they are the big baddie that always wins so nothing negative ever happens to them. If you are a well-known bandit and you piss off the whole server IC well accept the consequences of your actions and if they capture you and execute you, you could perma or at least put him/her on the shelf for a couple to make people feel like they accomplished something. Another big issue that's linked to perma death is that there is no sense of accomplishment. You kill people you're at war with and they don't care because they just respawn and do the same shit the next hour. Like what's the point of doing anything if no one is willing to admit defeat and act like an adult? If you're getting fucked IC, then take your L and move on. You don't want to perma death? Don't fuck over everyone you meet and give people a reason to have execution rights on you. Pretty simple really, it's called be held responsible for your actions IC. People always say RP is a two-way street, it's time to get on it. This probably felt like an incoherent ramble.

    We'll Meet Again

    Don't know where, don't know when Let me just start off by saying this has nothing to do with events that have happened on here, or the other community. I've been here for a long time. Seen some shit, done some things. For over three years I've played on, contributed to, and been given way too many warning points on this website. The hours I've put in the mod and standalone are the most of any game I've played. This terrible game has had its grip on me for a long time. Despite the game itself being garbage I've enjoyed nearly every minute I've spent playing it. And the same goes for DayZRP. Recently there has been a lot of drama within my family. People have been getting hurt, family has been splitting up and all the while I tried to ignore it. I used DayZRP as one of my getaways from the bullshit going on in real life. But it finally caught up to me. I can no longer ignore what is going on in the real world and have to deal with it. Because of this, my time on DayZRP will be coming to an end. Its been a fucking blast playing with all of you for all the years. Even with all the fake fuckers and snitches out there still were some really cool people. I'm gonna shout them all out here: @Vic - Probably the best friend I've met on here. We gotta hang sometime. Just not in Elk Grove, shits boring af. @Squillium - Up there with Vic. You are a real ass dude and I'm thankful to have met you when I did. @Alex Vivian - Fl00bn00b lookin ass. Play more games with us bro, miss your banter. @Famous - Favorite Cuban. Look out for your cousin for me will ya? @Dodge - Worst accents ever. Best tampon wearing cowboy hat motherfucker out there. @Shroud - Best soundcard NA. Don't ever upgrade @Wendigojames - Good luck in the marines my butterfly -snipped and replaced by Terra- @Kevin and @Dusty - Real ass dudes. Glad to have had you in the beginning of New Moon, you guys helped us reach the top and left a lasting impact. @Hebee - Best admin I've known. Get your WoW subscription and stop playing league already. @Hodgie - Despite our differences in the past you are still a great guy and I'm glad to have met you on here. @Earthwalker - Fantastic music taste and funny as fuck to hang with. Save the staff team @Eagle - Helped revive New Moon and brought us to a point of prosperity until my end. Save the staff team my friend. @Gatorr - POLICE COMMS @Billy - Your pretty cool even tho you're like 6 years old. No turning back. @Siorre- Known you for a long as time, glad to still have you as a bud @MotocrossGuy13 - We go way back. Stay trappin lil butterfly -snipped and replaced by Terra- @Shadows - You've changed since I first met you. Even if I don't agree with you much anymore I still have to thank you for giving me a chance in TFO. @Keedz Go to sleep already @Trix - You're pretty cool. Thanks for all banter. You've come a long way since TFO. @Charlie - Yeah I guess you are cool too. Glad to have meme'd with you. @Diamond - Funny as fuck dude to chill with. You are a great rper despite the hate you get. Wish I could have gotten to know you sooner when you enjoyed DayZ. @Enigma- Best laugh on DayZRP. @Hicks and @Kanen - Never knew you back in mod but am I glad to have met you in RHM. You guys are hilarious and I wish I could have played with you all more. @Lewis scott - Best mid-tier meme creator I've met. @GirlGamer - Known you for a long ass time. See you in Overwatch, Seth. As my closing statement I have some words for the staff team. I give you guys a lot of shit but its not because I'm trying to be a douche. I genuinely want this place to prosper and you guys are the future of DayZRP. Please don't turn the community against you, its starting to look like its heading in that direction. But in the end, despite what people say its not you guys that are "ruining the community." Its the people themselves and all the dumb shit they do. Its your job to make sure they don't sink this ship. To Lemon, Smilingbumcheek, Puddin, Brandyoung and Jimmy: I'll be seeing you all in valhalla soon. Farewell -Nihoolious/OG Nick Wilde/Izaak/Cameron/Salvador (Hit me up for my steam, snap or personal teamspeak btw)

    Will We Bounce Back?

    The reason RP is stale is because people focus too much on winning DayZRP. Everyone wants to be on top. As a result it brings out the worst in people. Like Uriki said, many self entitled know it alls that push the my way or the highway mindset. Considering the majority of the community cannot forumlate there own opinion without being influenced by these loud mouthed majority, it is hard to keep things smooth. Another issue is the memes... Everyone is trying way to hard to be a banter boy these days and that is coming from me. No matter who you run into the amount of OOC banter that influenced some peoples roleplay is down right stupid. People focus way to much into seeing RP improve from the next guy, that they don't realize they are part of the problem. Back in late 2014 early 2015, the story line was amazing. There were plenty of groups all actively trying to roleplay, not show off there new memes or rob people for boredom. I wouldn't mind a lore wipe but the more I see things, it won't help considering the majority of active members don't have the mentality we used to. Unless that changes and people focus more on the long run then short term material gain, tbis place could strive for a long time. As for the staff team.. well it has always had its bad eggs. There will always be certain members who try get invovled for the wrong reasons. My main concern with staff is this. Yes this is volunteer work. You give up the free time you have to monitor this place. But then what happens? They earn the title of GM and completely lose interest. Do bar minimum to keep the job and flail there dick around on the forums saying I am better then you because I have the badge. When someone calls them out for tbis or inactivity there reply always defaults to it being a volunteer job. Well if you volunteer in a soup kitchen, you don't serve a couple people and sit there for hours doing nothing while people go hungry. "Oh i did my job already, it is someone elses responsibility now". Fuck that. To keep this place functional you need people who are actually dedicated to RP and that is the problem and why so many staff members get hate. They earned the title because they can spam the forums, but when it comes to an in game presence, it is zero. The only reason this place is looking like its on its last leg is because we are really scraping the bottom of the barrel in almost every aspect, and unless everyone just picks it up just a tad, DayZRP will die.

    Question staff.

    Thumper was banned because he didn't hold his end of the deal he made when I personally removed his permanent ban and reinstated him to the community 6 months ago. He stated in his ban appeal that if his ban is revoked he plans to positively contribute and be a productive member of the community. To me his recent behavior shows that he does not care to contribute positively, but instead enjoys creating drama within the community. After recent posts I got tired of his "opinions" and I revoked my decision about bringing him back to the community that I made half a year ago. The decision is not appeal-able, reversible or up for discussion. The decision was made with knowledge of most of the admins. Should you be worried about posting your opinions on the forums? That depends if your "opinions" constantly create drama within the community, you constantly try to picture our community in bad light or you try to be as big pain in the ass for me as you possibly can. If the answer to any of these is yes, then you should be worried. The current situation within the community sucks and it's time I attend to the problem of the loud minority with toxic attitude that has disrupted the friendly atmosphere that we once had in this community. I have to take care of and prioritize needs of people who are friendly, positive, enjoy DayZRP and want to help us grow and be better. Being an elitist prick as I am I once again have to repeat: being here is a privilege, not a right. I do not want to continue to run DayZRP in it's current state where salt and memes have taken over and take priority over discussions, reasoning, good taste, kindness and maturity. If I think that removal of a toxic individual from the community might result in a betterment of the environment for the rest of us, I will not hesitate to do it. The thread about Thumpers removal ends here, this explanation should suffice and there is no further need for discussion. Any additional threads in regards to Thumpers ban will be deleted.

    The gif wasn't meant to be professional. While I'd love to take the feedback seriously I will not take advice about how run the community or how to behave from people who have been permabanned from this community for bad behavior or rule breaks and have a warning history so long it requires scrolling the page to see all of it. That you and a few others now suddenly all act all like a community justice warrior and leave feedback here every day or jump on everything Jim does while you did the same and worse last year, just hypocritical, that's all. It's not really about taking the flak. I can take flak if it's justified and most of the staff as well. If there were genuine concerns with how the staff works I would step in and change how things are done. I mean, if you look at it closer, most these "controversy" and drama threads and feedback posts are due to a group not getting their way about something, whether it's a report, warning points, you name it. Yes, it happens that they are completely right about something and I have to for example override a verdict and fix a mistake a GM made, but that has happened like what, 3-4 times this past year? The rest of the time we had a butthurt infused posts about how staff are bad because "they don't do things I want them to be done". So after a report that didn't go the way they wanted to or a comment made by a staff member they don't like we get a completely innocent and politically correct feedback. The buddies come and +1 the post or give BeanZ and suddenly it looks like half of the community is criticizing the staff member for something silly. I mean, I see it happen almost every day here. I don't know if these people think we're unaware of what they're doing or they just don't give a fuck. Either way, back on topic - if feedback is justified it will be definitely looked into and actions taken. If it's just another rant about staff, then the flak will be ignored. I'm tired of being politically correct and have to be all polite and nice towards people who obviously try to dig holes under the staff team and spit in my face and think I will not do anything about it.

    To VMC Survivors W/ Black Arm Bands - (Open Frequency)

    *After a short discussion with the Ataman, Starshina Semyonov takes a swig from his vodka flask and waves to the radio operator to walk over to him. Once the operator adjusts the frequency, Ivan raises the radio microphone up to his mouth and presses the PTT* "I hear you. You are speaking to Starshina Semyonov, Ivan Alexeyevich of the Cossacks of the 3rd Chernarussian Expeditionary Corps "Vernost'" of the VI "Krasnodarsky" Legion of the Sacred Rostovian Slavic Tsardom, a loyal subject of the Holy Tsar, Vladimir Romanov and a humble servant of God almighty above." *sigh* "КТО ВЫ БЛЯ ДУМАЕТЕ ЧТО ВЫ ТАКИЕ!? Some reliable blyat information you have there! You see a group of heavily armed men and attack them on a fucking hunch, еб мать вашу!? I am a survivor of the VMC battle... As soon as I heard the shots and explosions, two of my men and I knew what that meant and did not hesistate to exact swift vengeance upon your people and their fucking insolence! Those of us you did not strike from the shadows like fucking rats came back from the battle unscathed. Can you say the same about your men? Make no mistake, we can go... We are not afraid of the long journey, nor are we afraid of a cruel war. We believe faithfully in our victory and in the resolve of the many sons of our dear motherland. Are your people prepared to fight and die for whatever they believe in? HAH! I seriously doubt it... ... You want to resolve the situation without bloodshed!? ЧТО ВЫ ЗА ДЕБИЛЫ ВСЕ, БЛЯ, ТАКИЕ!? How do you expect to do that when you AL-FUCKING-READY have so much blood on your hands!? Our barracks are filled with talks of holy retribution. The men want to avenge their brothers and who am I to deny them that right!? I warn you if you head down that path, pick your targets well - if I or any other authorative commander are to fall, all those brave fighters, all those to who I can say "stop"... they will not stop anymore... ... You speak of liberty and justice and yet your are so quick to spill the blood of the innocent. I name it what it is! Hypocrisy! Greed! For power, petty materialism! Listen here, кретины, бля, for your own sake I hope you really do start to appreciate these values you stand for. Else, your days are fucking numbered. If not through our blood and steel, then through someone else's. Scum doesn't last, mark my fucking words!" *makes a small pause and lights a cigarette* "With that being said, the officer corps of the 3rd Chernarussian Expeditionary Corps "Vernost'" of the VI "Krasnodarsky" Legion has come to conclusion that unless we are further provoked, no more blood needs to be spilled. We do not require any safe passage as we can make any passage safe ourselves. We do not require your medical help, as we can take care of our own perfectly well. We agree to the meeting you propose. However, it will happen on our terms and at a location of our choosing or not at all. Agree to these terms and our radio operator will contact you on a private frequency. Then we can discuss the future of your groups and our regiment in this region. Конец связи." *Ivan puts down the microphone on the table and positions his mp3 player next to it. He leaves it on until the anthem of the Tsardom finishes playing and then the transmission cuts off*

    Question

    Now you're getting into semantics. Is it a gaming community or a company? I'm confused. Put him on final warning for what his ten points? Because the last ones expired. For saying nigga? Because it's fucking stupid. On his wall ? Maybe if you didn't have staff sitting in the helpdesk watching fuckin greys anatomy instead of handling their responsibility of MODERATING THE FORUMS shit like this wouldn't have been going on for 2 months giving people the impression this shit was ok. Face it , if Tosh didn't point the shit out to you guys on the ask the admins thread , nothing would've been done about it still. It's a meme. "Per Rolles status update" As if half of us follow Rolle anyway since he sold out to JimRp. And if it is a gaming community , why do you feel the need to suck every fucking fun thing out of it? Rolle , you every staff member thinks that they carried this shit themselves , and that all of us are expendable. You guys fucking threw Thumper out for giving you criticism. YOU who was one of my best fucking friends in the community hasn't said one fucking word to me since I left staff. I bent over backwards for this place. So did Sung, So did Tosh, So did Thumper, and when all is said and done , when we bring up concerns "we are salty" "we are trying to be the cool kids" Yea I seen your slack. No, how about we put to much time into this place for us to sit back silently and watch your half assed team kill it. You plant potatoes and that's exactly what you get.

    Add an appropriate addendum to a report verdict that has been successfully appealed

    Pretty small and easy change for staff to make (IMO). When a verdict is successfully appealed, make a note of it in the original verdict post from the report thread. Just as a form of completeness, and to avoid confusion. I know that before I whitelisted here, I read the last 2 pages of solved reports to help me try and understand how punishments were handed out and reports were handled, and I'd be willing to bet that I'm not the first guy who had that idea. Reading rules off of a page can never really give you a true feel for how the rules are enforced, but reading through the back-and-forth of a report and reading the verdict can help provide clarity. The aim here would be to add a line or paragraph after the original ruling like: The verdict above was successfully appealed, the appeal may be found here [link] Now I think this would be easily done, and seeing as how all appeals should have linked the original report already, it's all right there for staff to do. Hell, maybe even copy-pasta the appeal into the original verdict, but that could become messy and confusing. This suggestion came to mind after this appeal and report: http://www.dayzrp.com/forums/topic/80609-nvfl-ban-appeal/ http://www.dayzrp.com/forums/topic/80577-s1-badrp-gearrp-other-gorka-06-01-2017-2300/ I feel it is especially important in a case like this, where a possible addendum may be made to the rules that would accompany the verdict. Just a thought!

    Community Drama Stream

    I never agreed to be on a something called "drama stream", I thought this will be a genuine Q&A. If you're gonna make a meme out if it then fuck it, I don't have time for community drama created by forum warriors.

    Not gonna lie, just like the community meetings everyone will voice their opinions, people will say things will be done about it, then nothing will change, just like last time cause lets be honest, MOST of staff are lazy as fuck right now and are not doing shit for the community.

    Let me start off by saying that Thumper can be an asshat. That is not meant as a flaming comment, just a statement of fact. And I am NOT taking up for his "question" about +1 comments that this post concerns. He knew it was going to be a triggering thread and did it anyway to prove a point. And unfortunately, a couple of staff members took the bait, hook, line and sinker. Everyone knows that Thumper brings up contentious topics and it does get frustrating. BUT, as staff you need to be able to respond to the question without the unneeded commentary. Pointing out what everyone knows doesn't prove your superiority. It only shows that you have a hair trigger patience with certain people and do not have the maturity to withhold your negativity. Shadows did an excellent job of being professional and answering the question without slamming Thumper. There were 5 other responses that did not even attempt to answer the question, only to justify the outcome. Like I said in my last feedback...take a step back. Read the question, without judging the person who asked, and then answer the question. No opinion needed. And as a tip from someone who has been married to the asshat for 16 years, the more you argue with him the more he is going to push your buttons...

    I've had a nice long talk with some people in TS today. I have much to think about in terms of me staying. I am still dissatisfied about how some things are being handled, but now that I've spoken my mind with these people, perhaps shit will change for dayzrp. Maybe not, anyways, we'll see. For those who don't care if I stay or go, the fuck you doing wasting your time here on this status? lol

    Question

    No offense bro , but I wasn't talking to you. I was talking to Terra. It doesn't matter what you OR the rest of the admins are willing to listen to. It's what you're willing to FIGHT for. And as far as what I can see from where I am sitting , that's not much. I appreciate that you tried to respond. I do , not a meme. You guys may sit up in the helpdesk and think that's our whole purpose , and that's what we are here for. No. Just like everybody else that comes here or plays here , we enjoy being with our friends. We enjoy getting into game and having "fun" and memeing with each other on the forums. None of that was hurting anyone. The reason that the team worked before was because it had people that kept each other in check. Not just yes men , or ghosts. Not filled with a bunch of new people because the former peoples concerns were ignored to the point where they left. We would fight. We would bring up issues and we would talk about them. If I disagreed with one of the people I was working with I wouldn't sign the verdict just to get it out of the way. You know what it feels like now? Anyone who has an issue with staff is a trouble maker. Anyone who disagrees with a verdict is just attempting to start problems. Anyone who doesn't kiss ass is a problem , and anyone who doesn't end their sentences with hearts get their permabans revoked. You ask why it can't be a community and a business? Because communities come together. Communities are made up of like minded individuals that adhere to the same goals , and follow the same rules. Now a business is a business because it's soul focus is making revenue. That's obvious. It's especially obvious due to the fact the "Co-Owner" couldn't pass the whitelist and was allowed entry. No offense to him , but just an example as to the obvious difference. You guys want to fix it? Treat us all the same. treat every fucking whitename that walks in here like a VIP , and not give certain players the stigma of "trouble". Don't treat every critique as a hostile attack , and for fucks sake remember what the hell YOU GUYS are here for. Not just to staff an internet community but to have fun as well. I guess Terra isn't going to respond. Thanks for the answer Oliv.

    An Open Letter from an Admin   This morning I woke up and slid out of bed

    An Open Letter from an Admin This morning I woke up and slid out of bed trying not to wake up my wife like I do every morning. I went downstairs, made a coffee and poured bowl of Lucky Charms. I sat my ass on the couch and tried to catch up on what I missed over night. I've been doing the same thing everymorning since I was a CH Support member. Well, maybe not the exact same thing, it's not always Lucky Charms. Granted things were a little simpler then, but a few promotions and a bunch of months between then and now has led me to here. Along that time, I've changed. I've made mistakes and learned from them. Grown. Evolved. Call it whatever you want. The reasons why I joined staff have changed as well. I, like many others, joined staff because they wated to be a bigger part of something they enjoyed, to give back. Sadly there were other reasons too. I joined staff to bury myself in work to hide from real shit. Some know what that is, most don't, and this isn't the place to discuss it. In the end, it worked. Staff has been the distraction I needed to get through some pretty tough times, and I owe this place a lot for that. Every time one of you put up an "ARRRGHHHH! He took all my shit!" report, you were secretly helping me. For that, I owe this place. When I got asked to become an Admin I was asked if I was in this for the long haul, if I planned on sticking around for a while. I want to be, but who knows. I can't predict what the future is going to bring, but I wasn't planning on leaving. I still don't plan on it. I'm not sure if you're happy about that or not, but there is a good chance you might be stuck with me for a while. Here's the thing though: I'm not going to be around for anything if this place falls apart. I realize that. I know that. And I'm doing my best. Sadly, that's the direction this place is headed sometimes. Sometimes this place feels like a marriage that just isn't working. Well, this open letter here is my therapy. My couples counseling. And now I have to ask you, do you plan on sticking around too? A community doesn't work if the people in the community aren't happy and don't want to be here. I know some of you aren't happy, nor do I expect you all to be happy all the time. Hell, there are time's I'm not happy with things here either. Now how do we make each other happy? I dunno, I'm still working on that. I can't speak for you guys, but I think I'm trying. I don't mean that to sound like you aren't trying, I don't mean that at all. I literally mean I can't speak for you, I don't know what's going on in your head. To wake up in the morning and see people calling you a liar, to say you're doing a shit job, to say you're biased, to say you have a hitlist of community members you want gone... Not only is that so very wrong, not only is it defamatory, it also stings like a fucking bitch. When you claim things like that, be prepared to back it up with facts, because talking out your ass isn't good for anyone. Hell, I've had members that have been here for less than 2 months come and complain to me about staff bias with no factual evidence as well. These unfounded claims are simply not helping the community, and are just causing this mentality to take a deep root throughout the community. There are going to be decisions made you are not going to be happy with at times. There are going to be things you might be upset with and not agree with, but that doesn't mean the decision made was wrong. If it is in fact wrong, then bring it up, but do it like an adult, present it properly, factually, and constructively. I've said it before, and I will reiterate it, "I'm not here to babysit". I signed up here to do a job and I will do it. You do something wrong, points will fly your way. I will also remind everyone, staff included, nobody was ever banned for playing a game and following the rules. Am I saying staff is perfect? Not a fucking chance. Never has been no matter who was in it. I'm also not saying you shouldn't call staff out on our bullshit. If we fuck up, we fuck up. It's going to happen, we're human. I've said many times to the rest of staff, it's not the fuck up or being called out on it that shows who you are, so don't get disheartened by it. It's all in how you handle it, the feedback, and how you learn from it to better yourself in what you do. All I ask, is that when you do call us out, you do it with facts. In a marriage things only work if both parties put forth the effort. I'm promising you all I'm not planning on letting this shit fall apart if I can help it. We used to be newlyweds, now we don't even sleep in the same room anymore. Well fuck it, I'm tired of it and I wanna push those twin beds together like Ernie and Bert do when they are done filming the show for the day. But, that's not a decision I can make on my own. It still takes two people. So, either work on it with us, or sign those divorce papers and walk out, but if you're sticking around with me, let's work on it properly. I don't expect or even really want or care if anyone replies to this. I wrote this to be therapeutic for myself and perhaps give you guys a bit of insight into the inner workings of my own mind. I mean, if I'm not using this wall to post memes, I might as well put something here, right?

    Staff Feedback

    Thank you all for your Feedback. I really appreaciate it. Since yesterday I feel the need to say something about the feedback and my activity in general. I just did not know how. I try. I do think the Admins are aware of their activity as I have addressed it myself. The Admin team is new and they need to learn. The last couple of weeks have been a lot. The new website, the new tools (I still need to figure out some things...), the issues that have been addressed by the community and so on. We try our best to do everything...but we only can do one thing at the time. As everyone knows, there are only a few Appeal-topics which an Admin is allowed to solve alone (for example giving a 6th chance to get whitelisted). Everything else needs to be discussed and decided. Some statements sound to me like I just grab every appeal and just do it because I dont want to let the others do something - That is not correct. Truth is, I get annoyed when I see things dont get done, which in my mind and maybe because of my experience, should not sit in the ban appeal section for days (because I feel bad that someone cannot play or because the person will never play here again - deny). Report ban appeals always have my priority since we have to check the original verdict and maybe we have to overturn it. Someone who is banned for 3 days but has to wait for his ban appeal to be solved 4 days - nothing feels more shitty to me. I try to motivate the team, I try to get the things done, I try to help in helpdesk - and I realise that I cannot do everything. The Admins need to make their own experience, I know and realise that and I will help them and support them to be able to make their experiences - but it is a two way street. Again, thank you all for the feedback.

    I've had a nice chat with @[email protected]& @JimRP and we talked it all out. Ever

    I've had a nice chat with @Oliv @Rolle & @JimRP and we talked it all out. Everything is fine now. I would like to formally apologize for acting like a complete and utter dumbass and child the other day. What was said should've been discussed in private in the first place. That absolutely unlike me as you all know. After 2 years of shutting up and staying in the dark minding my own business, I pretty much set myself up for an explosion of "feelings". I wanna make it clear that my lashing out was not mainly focused on Welden's temp ban (I know I know, it's what it looked like), but an accumulation of many things within this community over the course of 3 years as well as a ton of really harsh and personal things popping in my real life all at once (trust me what's going on sucks for me but this is not the place to talk about nor am I looking for pity). Hopefully what I talked about with higher staff can be something that will be done in the future in order to maintain DayZRP, a great place to be. I feel absolutely stupid for acting like a child and I deserve any and all backlash that people may think about me. Again, sorry for the way I acted and I hope we can all look past this and move on to better things. DayZRP has been and will remain my home away from home. Thank you all for being amazing and supportive. - A fuckin' idiot!

    I'm not going to name names, but with all due respect when there's 4-5 people community members in a staff help room with a few GMs. Please have the courtesy to poke your fellow staff members and inquire if you can join, and why you should be joining. You shouldn't be joining for no reason without having any context of the discussion or meeting, even just to sit in the room in silence. These are not discussions for drama to be listened in to for enjoyment. Just now we attempted to have a discussion in a staff room, which turned into a mess with several staff joining it. One of which interrupted the entire thing to tell everyone to be quiet to then request, "Explain to me what's going on." No. We aren't going to explain it. You don't join a discussion that was designed to be private and then ask us to stop to explain it to you. It really made the discussion much harder than it had to be with that. Please talk to your fellow staff before joining. Sometimes discussions are private, and that's the best room available for privacy. Just joining it can cause more of a mess.

    what really is an unnecessary post?

    Uh, so I'll comment now: For those of you crying staff bias or aboose or whatever, I wasn't even aware that the post was directed towards my post until the appeal. However, that doesn't negate the fact that it was an unnecessary post. Not that this is a valid argument, but I don't even see anything about the post that received points that would make be biased in this situation. The post added nothing to the discussion, and was low effort. Maybe if it actually progressed the discussion forward, it wouldn't have received points. I'm tired of people taking everything that happens in this community way too fucking seriously all the time. Can you just relax and understand that staff can make mistakes as 1. We're human too, not fucking robots and 2. That we're volunteers. We volunteer our time and opinions in order to help keep the community going. This is a community, not a courtroom, so take your lawyer suit off and chill the fuck out. I feel that staff is taken for granted. Without us, this place wouldn't be running. There is a lot of complaining and shit talking about staff when most of it is not warranted at all. But again, realize that we're all volunteers, and that we're here because we want to help the community and keep it running. I'm also sick of the circlerjerk of people posting the same memes around on the forums "muh consistency" "staff bias" "staff is shit now". When there are many many different opinions and perspectives within the staff team, and when each report and reported post is looked at with a case-by-case basis, try to understand that sometimes consistency is a little difficult to obtain, especially when (like I said) different people with different opinions look at and discuss each thing. And maybe there are certain things you miss when you look at the posts certain people get points for. We look at all the context that there is. You have to look at all of the context in each situation, and look at each post that gets points as different entities instead of being the exact same thing ("this got points why didn't this thing that is almost the same get points?"). Something that might get points in one thread might not get points in a separate thread based on other context, and you need to understand that. Lastly, maybe if people would actually focus their posts on trying to be helpful, constructive, or discussion-progressing, instead of being edgy and memey, they wouldn't get points. Just keep that in mind. Instead of using staff as a scapegoat for your own shortcomings, look at yourself and see how you can improve the community instead of what dank meme you can post next. Later.

    @Terra thanks for getting my suggestion implemented as fast as you did. I appreciate it. Slow down or take a break. You're not the only admin. As far as the other admins go I have no feedback because I see nothing note worthy from you. No appeals not much at all. I see more from @Castiel and @Dusty then the rest of you combined. @Noxious Not going to jump on you because I don't know the situation , but if Posts feedback is accurate that's something you need to fix. @Andrey you're one of the most experienced GMs. Hopefully you can use that experience to help CH and Mods know the correct way to do shi As far as CH and MOD goes , night time US there's no CH in the helpdesk. Multiple times I see a person in waiting for staff help for a half hour to an hour and have had to poke other staff like @Rose and @Ender. Not sure if staff work is for you lads , as it doesn't seem that you can be fucked to do any of it.

    When can we use our KOS rights.

    So I read this report. Now this community member got banned for killing someone he had KOS rights against. So my question is why was he banned for using KOS rights? Accused was in an active firefight, the hostage ran away, looted up for a bit and came back during said firefight and confronted KillerWelden. In the verdict it was stated that he wasn't armed. Well he had a melee and you have to ask the question, what if he had a hidden pistol? The accused has no way of knowing what weapon he found in the amount of time he was gone. Its is also very possible for him to have met up with a group member and be given a pistol. KillerWelden does not have to retake him hostage or tell him to leave. The OP obviously had radio contact after he was let go and knew of the situation. If OP didn't want to die, he should never have come back to that area. Since when is this rule play and how can Killerwelden know what he has or what he does not have. Its quite easy to pull a pistol or a melee and attack or even distract while his friend gats him. I would like to understand and have a better explanation on why using your KOS rights is rule play in this situation. Thanks

    Some feedback for @JimRP Recently I haven't worried about posting feedback since I'm trying to avoid drama and shit, but I think this is necessary. I apologize ahead of time for being blunt. First off, I'm going to make this clear: I don't know why you are Co-Owner/PR Manager and I definitely don't think you've ever deserved it. I spent a decent amount of time exposed to your "work" when I was staff and at first I admit it looked like you were devoted to the position. However, nothing has ever really come of it. Sure, Psy and some other little youtubers/streamers came around, but after that it looked like you gave up. The community has seen zero progress to any real developments in the way of promoting this community. All these new PR people keep coming in, but you still do nothing serious. This community has had a serious decline in the number of active members and I honestly feel like you could've done more to prevent it if you did more than just retweet shit. Where is this Mr. Moon appearance we've been waiting for 3 months? Honestly, to most community members it's become rather obvious that you only hold the title and position because of the money you threw into the community. Sure, it's Rolle's choice, but at least look like you're trying. You are honestly the most powerful community member in this community with all the shit you've gotten away with. For example, spouting Nazi shit. It's disgusting that you can get away with this and then go inactive. On top of that, you then deny active members of this community the chance to promote the community because some bullshit. Do your work. You probably won't even take any of this into account and will just thank me for the feedback. If you're just going to thank me, don't even respond. Work the position you hold instead or leave. EDIT: Also, claiming that you want to ban everyone that argues against you is a joke. Even more proof of your bullshit. And you didn't save this community. Get a grip and stop acting so superior to every member in this community.

    Lol come on. The guy posted an image link in a report. It's not like he wasn't doing his "job" or abusing privledged information. He linked a meme picture. Who gives a shit. People need to step back a bit here and not make mountains out of molehills. It's an online gaming community for an early-access game. It's not the end of the world. What about all the times Rolle has flat-out posted meme pictures in reports and appeals? There's no higher example than that. I agree some memes and images could be unnecessary if they're intentionally insulting, but this itself has turned into more of a meme itself when people can't even post a stupid image.
