Whitelist quiz....

Recommended Posts

Billy Jack    0

I'm sure most of you by reading the title are automatically thinking, 

  1) 'Oh great another moron that didn't read the rules' ;

or

  2) 'this should be in the questions section';

When in fact neither are true..... No I haven't passed the damn quiz yet, but its not because I failed to read the rules. In fact I read them multiple times before attempting the quiz the first time (btw I laugh at people that have a hard time finding the 'pass-phrase'. Come one people read!!! Its right there). But after attempting the test the second time I had two thoughts, the first being, 'damn I'm dumb.' (which I'm pretty sure is not the case as I'm a fairly successful software engineer IRL), followed by 'This is a really good test of the rules'.

So I wanted to do two things with this post, congratulate the admins for not making the test something you (or me at least) couldn't just fly through and hear some stories about other experiences with the quiz.

And please laugh it up on my account for failing the damn thing twice if you breezed right through the first time. Here is the tricky little bugger that caught me this last time.

What does the term "aggravation" mean in regards to the community rules?

(Purposely didn't show the answer as fear someone may attempt to leverage my failed response to gain advantage on their own quiz)

Hey buddy,

If you have questions about the whitelist aaplication, you can always join the helpdesk and get some explanation of certain questions.

When you make your whitelist app try to get all the answers out of the Rules. They may sound weird and logic but, there are many people that use their own thoughts on a certain question! All the aswers are in the rules somewhere so when you can't find an answer just join the helpdesk instead of choosing the answer that you would do!

I wish everyone who is attempting for his whitelist good luck!

I wasn't complaining about the test, or even asking for help on it. Simply trying to spark yet another conversation on the topic.

But with that said, thank you guys for pointing out the avenues for support. I'm sure someone else will find use in it.

For the record, I made it past the quiz and now just waiting for the app to be reviewed. Shortly after that comes back there will be a new Character roaming Chernarus. Looking forward to that.

Hello Billy,

Happy to hear that you enjoyed our test, it's still a work in progress and we try to make it better all the time.

Looked at your whitelist and it looked good, welcome to our community.

I don't see what kind of discussion you hope to get here, would it be a discussion what people think about the test?

Yes basically, doesn't look to be taking off very well though.

The goal of the whitelist has always been to be tough, "the quiz" is relatively new. And we aim to make it more difficult in the future :)

please do, it feels like too many people are able to join and the community is going through a time where there's way too much reports from newcomers than ever

Yea Billy, That is the question I also had a hard time with. Not the only one I failed, but missed that one more than once. All in all though I did enjoy the test and enjoyed the fact that you really did need to read the lore and rules to make it through. Like Slash says above (btw I love the name and graphic) " They may sound weird and logic but, there are many people that use their own thoughts on a certain question! All the aswers are in the rules somewhere". It took me a few try's but they were all there. My brain told me to pick answers that seemed right, but after going over the rules and such again it made more sense as to what the correct answer was. Good luck on your whitelist! Hope to see you out there..... or do I?

P.S. I am also open to being laughed at by first time passers lol.

No one is going to laugh at you if you have take a few tries to get through the whitelisting process, it just shows that you are determined to get it right and that shows a willing to join this community. The trick is taking your time, as something good is never to be rushed. Also if you anyone is struggling people can always join the helpdesk in the DayZRP TS and get some guidance from the extremely helpful staff.

Personally, When I joined the Community the whitelist was different and harder (in my opinion) than the new whitelist. You had to actually write out paragraphs of what the KoS & NLR rule meant. you had 3 attempts, if you failed all 3, then o7 (you had to make a ban appeal and hope to get another try) It was harder back then and personally I feel like we should've kept the old whitelist system, but that's just me. :D

I think it's too easy at the moment. - personal preference

Ahh, this is making me curious as to how the newer whitelisting is... I still remember my excitement when I passed on my 2nd attempt.

It's not an issue with the quiz being hard, it's with the staff being (seemingly) too lenient. People who fail the test 5 times are getting another chance, when they have already shown their incompetence and ignorance of the rules.
