    Link to the source of punishment (report/post): http://www.dayzrp.com/profile/12957-castiel/warnings/7271/ http://www.dayzrp.com/forums/topic/82783-the-weird-trend-of-character-pages/#comment-1519119 Why the verdict is not fair: As you can see from the thread linked above it is a thread poking fun at the fact that everyone uses models and actors/actresses as their character page photos, I agreed and it made me laugh - hence "Hahahaha". It was a funny thread, I laughed, that's it. Rolle made an announcement at the beginning of the month stating that the Staff team would begin to take a more lenient approach when it came to forum posts and this warning directly "contravenes", as Dax put it, that statement made by our community leader. Even several months ago when I was in Staff I would not have pointed someone for laughing at something funny, let alone now with the Staff team being supposedly more "lenient" - perhaps Dax missed the memo, given the fact that he posts on the forums once or twice a week at a push. My post was laughing at the thread's topic and agreeing with the OP and many others, it was not laughing directly at anyone and while it may not have been a paragraph or anything it was totally on-topic - just because my post was short does not mean it adds nothing. Also, my post was on Monday morning, I was warned on Wednesday afternoon - what took so long? My post has been up for 48hr+ with no issues whatsoever, Staff members commenting left and right after me and not warning the post. This kind of "looking for things to warn" behaviour is exactly what's wrong with the Staff team and as far as I know was the original intention of Rolle's "leniency" in the announcement, to avoid this kind of thing. Additional statements/comments explaining your point of view: I have nothing more to state. What would you like to achieve with this appeal: Points removed, post restored, apology given. What could you have done better?: Not laughed at something funny that I agreed with.

    I think that would be an unnecessary hassle that would only turn new people off from continuing to play here. Newcomers will learn far more by actually playing the game with experienced players than a quiz on the website.

    I'm still confused how people are thinking forcing it on people will make anything better?.. It was tried previously with a extra server as a CHOICE and people hardly played it even with double the current player base.

    So what you're saying is lets force people to do what they don't want and it will have a better response? I'm sorry but I would not play if it was forced 1st person, as I know many others would too.

    I wish it would work, I love first person and I think third person is really mainly used to abuse the game mechanics to ensure that you win. A big complaint I hear from people is that they can't see as much and that makes them more vulnerable... which is kind of the point, we're supposed to be vulnerable aren't we? It sure would suck if you actually had to play carefully and look around in order to be 100% aware of your surroundings. I could go on and on and on about how first person adds tension, immersion, vulnerability, and a sense of unknown/danger vs how third person adds an easy "press button to view everything around, even behind you and over walls" button, but this video describes my stand on it absolutely perfectly. If you are one of those people who only ever plays on 3rd person then please just watch it and get a small glimpse of what you're missing out on in RP: "Third person view allows you to gain knowledge without any consequence" "If someone wants to look at something, they need to be at risk in doing so. That's how it should work, that's how it works in reality, it's good gameplay, too."

    Luke Krey PoV I walk into Gorka I act rude I walk inside the police station the police tell me to get out right now I say why and then one of them points an Ak at me and then tells me to get out again so I leave I still act rude I walk around the town away from the police station. I walk into a random house nobody was in they tell me to get out of that also. They then start this witch hunt to get me so I hide away from them they spot my boy @evanm23 who just arrived and they initiate on him. It then turns into a firefight with "White Armbands Shooting at Us" we leave after sometime. Right let me explain being rude and talking shit does not mean I'm trying to force you to get KOS rights on me I left when the demands went through the only reason I shot yall cuz you set up this big witch hunt to capture me and instead initiated on @evanm23 The OP was apart of this so called Witch Hunt since he was hiding in the trees aiming his weapons when I walked near him bullets pop near me and I put the dude down. This report is false the OP was in dynamic of the initiators and set up a vantage point to kill @evanm23 If he did not comply. Here is a video this is all I got recorded. Also If this helps Staff they are all in the same Teamspeak channel as of right now so yeah.

    It is rule play / nvfl to say that you are knowingly going to go watch a firefight then the second you have impacts or snaps around you claim that you have KoS rights.

    #notallwhitenames Anyways, like I said before. I dont think anything should be forced, I originally just made this thread as a meme, saying my thoughts on how third person at times is abused. And I'm sorry to hear about the nausea Rogue, I bet that really does suck. Also like I said before, NOTHING should EVER be FORCED, as well, when fixes come around great, and when we can customize our fpv, even better. In absolute seriousness, a first person only server shouldn't be considered until we can customize the fov. Even then it still may not happen. But then, it could be more realistic and immersive. At times now, first person is NOT immersive due to the narrow vision it provides. That's pretty much all I have to say about it, hopefully no one's to heated about this subject. Because I certainly know I'm not and enjoy role play regardless of being in first or third.

    Thank you, I appreciate things like this. ❤ shit like this is one of the major problems in this community. Most people don't care that others may have legit reasons for something. So thank you for actully pointing this out. ❤ you get beanz and more awesome points. I don't care that 1st person is 'more immersive'. I enjoy logging on and rp, not pvp. Do you see me whining about "omg all these firefights are screwing up my rp, totally ban the pvp!" No. Because I play 3rd person, is my rp less immersive? According to the 'whose rp did you enjoy' ....nope. People enjoy rp with me. Because I know people enjoy pvp, rp, and both. I'm not going to demand that something must be done a certain way, because I feel its better. Especially when someone is dealing with medical issues. For those about to tell me take dramamine and shut up, I take CHEMO LEVEL anti nausea meds when I have to. Even then, all they do is keep me from throwing up, nothing for the nausea itself. I can play 3 games in moderation that I enjoy. Thats it. Can't watch others play etc. It sucks. If people are really that upset about people having the ability to play a certain perspective, you need to go to a 1st person only server and stop complaining. My 3rdP is not doing anything to your 1stP. Thank you. Also as said, I do better when I can zoom out more like basic servers. I don't use it to cheat. While I would love to ask for permission to do that due to medical reasons, I doubt anyone would actually care.

    I play on 1st person quite regularly with the Akrasia fellas and to be quiet honest I don't enjoy it which is why I said no. Forcing something onto someone is not going to work, if the poll isn't at the vast majority go back to pressing enter and continue as you please to immerse yourself. I don't like the idea of forcing things onto people again.. Especially on a game.

    Someone correct me if I am wrong but the times first person was implemented, it was always on the secondary server and not on the main one. And I feel many people will go on the server were they have the choice to switch between first and third since that is what they always have been doing. But what if it was forced for a certain period of time, I am sure many people would get to like it and develop a habit. Because currently the only good thing about third person is make it easier for firefights and saying dont use third person if you do not like is not an argument since you would be putting yourself at a big disadvantage over people using third person. People are always looking for ways to bring back fear and tension in the game and first person is definitely a way to bring it back on a small scale. I would say give it a go and judge afterwards if you like it or not. I highly doubt if its forced on S1 that the servers will go empty.

    Yes, but if we were to have both first person only servers, or even do what TheMatt924 suggested, that would negate the need for third person. Once in first-person only, it is a level playing field for all. Perhaps you didn't think about that? I don't know if we would lose half of our player base, I was under the impression that people came to this community primarily for the role-play. First-person enhances role-play, it does not detract from it in any way that I can think of. Why would anybody complain about something like that, much less take such a drastic step and play a whole lot less? To demonstrate the value of first person? I thought that was the point of arguing? To convince people that your point of view is correct, or learn that your own is incorrect?

    *Ivan hears Shepard's words, his grip on the radio tightening. He looks down at Severograd from his place in the woods, leaning against a tree. He brings the radio up and speaks into it.* "You want to be straight with me? I don't know who the fuck you've been talking to, but it seems they ain't been so straight with you. The things you're saying, making it seem that I've been planning some backstabbing bullshit, after all we've been through? Give me the name of the person feeding you this shit, and I'll grind their teeth into the back of their throat. I have NEVER walked into that city with ill intentions towards you, Scarlet, Duncan, Francis, or any of the others. Skinner? The only reason I'm working with him, the ONLY reason he isn't dead now, is because of him. And you know exactly who I am talking about. Jack wants things to go back to the way things were, he's like a child threatening to throw a tantrum unless he gets what he wants.... and he's got the perfect leverage for it: My wife.... my son.... they're alive. And if I kill Skinner, and try to be with them again after that.... Jack will kill them. I need you to understand that their safety is my top priority, my ONLY priority. And I have been trying, trying so hard to make sure Jack gets his way, whilst maintaining the safety of you and your people, along with others. Hell, I held a gun to Skinner head and told him that I'd only work for him under certain terms. I've chosen your people over him at EVERY turn. Just because I'm working along side him, it does NOT mean I am on his side. A week ago I GAVE Scarlet the opportunity to kill him, but she didn't. If she had, if she just ended it there and then.... we wouldn't have to worry about this crap. And maybe? Maybe I DO hold her partly responsible for that.... But never enough to warrant a vengeance. The only reason I'm telling you about my family, is because I trust you. Because I STILL consider you a friend, and because I need you to UNDERSTAND my position. I am TRYING to get things to work and I will continue to do so. But.... and I'll only say this once. If you ever harm them.... touch them.... try and find them.... if you threaten them.... if you so much as BREATH, in their general direction.... ..........." *Ivan releases the PTT and stalks back into the woods.*

    Mate I dont see why you need to give me attitude, im literally re-iterating everything I said to you to Caesar and his comment (And others reading). As to my comment, " Ironically, most people who have been arguing against this could've theoretically taken this quiz more than 5 times now just today", This is not meant to poke fun at people with differing opinions, it's just true that all while we have been arguing this we could've taken this test, which apparently is so difficult, time consuming, and annoying 5 times over if not more. I should've added myself to that category because I have been arguing just as much as you. So please, I would like everyone to have a civil conversation void of negative attitudes. And there is a difference in what i said about validity of argument. Anyone is entitled to their own opinion, how they wish to argue that opinion and provide reasoning is a different story. Thats the entire premise behind debates. Who can achieve a more valid and concise "Argument", not opinion. I never said peoples opinions are invalid. Infact, Saunders has the same opinion as you regarding this idea, yet you clearly see my response to him being positive, encouraging some of his ideas. He stated his OPINION but didnt give an ARGUMENT behind it which is why I didn't respond back with my own argument. So extend me the same courtesy of civil conversation I extended you. Do not put words in my mouth, telling me that I think your opinion is invalid when clearly I dont. Everyone has a say, everyone has an opinion. Argue it how you will. Our conversation was not a waste of time, like i told you in that conversation I enjoy speaking to people with differing opinions and talking it out in a mature way and I believe we did just that. I also joined your channel and started off by apologizing, saying that we may have gotten off on the wrong foot and I reassured you I meant you no disrespect. But you keep giving me a slightly condescending attitude. At the end of our convo I said I would let the forum ferment, see how it goes, and we parted ways off Teamspeak. To avoid any further and possible altercation/flame war between us I am now done commenting on this thread as well.

    I don't feel something like this should be necessary. Where the problem comes from is people reading the rules just to past the test, and not reading them to absorb them. On top of that, I don't feel it's feasible. That edit was not necessary. You seem to come across as not happy here. If you aren't I suggest you fix that because everyone deserves to be happy. If there is something I can do to help fix that, feel free to PM me, as I do not want to clutter up this thread as it's already gone sideways a few times.
