    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.

    Me and a few other community members have talked about in the "Rant" thread by @Andrey and we have taken it into our own hands to create said meeting. We have a set of topics that we would like to discuss, and until that date are up for discussion and additions according to what people discuss on this thread. Your topic may be added! We want this to be a COMMUNITY meeting. we wish to have a set amount of time to speak on each subject for the sake of time and seeing as many subjects as possible. roughly 15-20 minutes per topic, and 'umbrella' topics to discuss. The meeting would be in a room with talk power, policed by me and a few others and any staff who decide to attend. There will be a system to if you wish to have talk power you will poke the mediator and they will put you in a queue to speak max 3 minutes per person per turn. We want to be as fair as we can and try to give as many voices the floor as possible. here is a time table link to see the times around the meeting time in your time zone (server time is 9:00 in the Uk on the table if you don't know for reference). Someone will record and post the entire meeting and I will post it here when it is finished for any who couldn't be there and wish to see what came of said meeting. Current Topics 1.What are we doing lore wise currently? What does staff plan for a lore wipe/Loremaster team? (Extended topic because of depth, 30 minutes) 2. Desolation/Redux and what will come of that being introduced 3. A Realistic discussion on ways to make moving the focus of DayZRP to another game such as an in house developed DayZRP mod for Arma 3 viable (such as back in the day) 4. What is staff's view on groups who are involved in rule breaks/reports. Does staff keep a closer eye on groups who systematically get involved in sticky/fishy situations and if so do they do anything about it? 5.Discussion for a Group Approval system. Possibilities of a dedicated staff team to approve and provide feedback on groups to take the weight off other staff members. Please RSVP and I will add you to the list for this meeting. Drop-ins on the meeting are encouraged if you don't RSVP but it's good to see who is attending for those who view the thread. Please give any constructive feedback, thank you.

    Allright... unfortunately it's my time to say goodbye to this wonderful community. I've had so much fun playing here and I've met the most awesome people. I have to say that this has been the best community I've played in. And it would've not been as fun without all of you. So, why am I leaving? there's quite many reasons but here's a few. 1. I've done goofed (Went ahead and edited Tower United's files because I'm curious and stupid. Result: Ended up being VAC banned for cheating (Found a exploit in the games files.)) Yep, I'm an complete idiot. 2/10 for that. 2. I'm applying for a school to become an engineer in computer stuff mainly going to study Game Technology/Program Technology and implementing them in to real life. I have to study to get in to the school. 3. Me and my beautiful girlfriend have been planing to have a quite a long holiday (2 months?) somewhere. (We still have to figure out where we are going go. Australia perhaps?) Well now that we're over the shocking fact that I got VAC:ed I'll get to the people. @Lyca - You are the first person I met in game and I can't believe that after a 1 week of playing in this community I ended up being a clown with you. You guys taught me so much. I learned how to act in game so that people would not think that I'm a complete white name. And oh boy I was a complete white name. I enjoyed playing in the Clowns and in Kindred with you, @Sylvester Todd, @Boston, @Finn, @Kunkka and all the other clowns and Kindreders that I'm not going to add here because the list would be so long. Now @Steck, @Kyle_Jones, @jamieV_, @Marcoooz, @Jonas Gj and god damn @FrostyCat. o7 I loved playing in The Pagans and loved RP:ing with you. I had so much fun and I'd say it was one of the greatest adventures in this community. Especially the story of Vasiliy and the time when we got the settlement running. One thing that should be learned is that you must be careful with the lab and learn how to use it. AND DO NOT ENTER THE LAB WITH OUT DALLAS' PERMISSION! It exploded too many times. (Frosty.. seems like your donation is not going to happen since I'm going to be gone.) Love you Paegoons. o7 <3 @Oyface and @BillyR - We had the best story. Ever. Nothing else to add. Too bad it ended so quickly. One of the best RP I've ever had. o7 <3 @Chewy, @HEARTLSS21 - I loved every little interaction we had and I was so happy to RP with you. Every day I hopped on ts to see if you guys are on because I wanted to hang with you. I enjoyed your company that much. o7 <3 (HEARTL, Never ever let Rehctub die. I love the character.) (Cait too.) If I forgot someone, I'm so sorry. Got lots to do and write. I will miss you, HUUUUUUUUUUUUU... Now.. I'm leaving you can catch me on steam if needed or in my twitch channel (Same name) I'll hang around ts sometimes. Keep the community up and running until I come back. Okay? "I can't believe you cannot RP, You tried to rob me and when I RP ran away you killed me which is against the rules!" - You know who you are! Miss you!

    Don't discard her post. If it prevents even one person from playing at all, there is no point in this thread anymore. I personally have mixed feelings but I believe I'll make the transition to first person. It should be up to the individual.

    Because unfortunately some members are only here to PvP while being sheltered by the no KoS rules, removing 3rd person would nerf their PvP experience.

    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."

    So, there's a no tolerance policy on themes and jokes on Nazism and racism in this community (not saying I don't agree with this), but @Rolle having a North Korean dictatorship themed profile is completely fine? Does this mean it's okay to joke about people suffering in North Korea, but not people who suffered during WW2, or victims of racism?

    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.

And that guy screaming earlier something about liver's wouldn't you need a doctor to perform surgery to even get to the liver , because i think your handless doctor can help you with that i hear many death threats but those are only words nothing more .

    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.

    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.

    I've been a part of the community for just over a month now and have never had to actually write a report against someone(s) until now. Therefore I apologize if there is some confusion within this report. I see now that the guy in blue initiated spontaneously without telling his friends who at the time were not ready, I only initially reported BadRP because I thought you had just stood there and watched him die. However I do not retract my report on NVFL against @IrishThePotato I especially do not retract my report against @Ghostbuster and I am really anticipating seeing his Pov. He simply had no rights to kill me and I am honestly disappointed in all his affiliates who were with him at the time. Besides the little misidentification in Gorka where they ended up slaughtering half the civilians (which is completely understandable due to a lack of communication) all my interactions with them as a member of the Red Army and as a member of New Gorka and more specifically MS-13 all my interactions with Akrasia (and their alts) have been both clean in the rules and quite enjoyable to play out. I have no OOC hate for the group and I can see that they are becoming less and less of a PvP group, not that their Rp was ever lacking. I just find it hard to believe that you weren't discussing that you lacked KOS rights over TeamSpeak especially with a Moderator in your dynamic. Hebee in his POV even said But plain and simple you had KOS on one person and that was Pablo Martinez. You simply should have seen clearly how there were four people on our street/in and out of our compound all wearing completely red clothes and two of those people were wearing a red bandana and face mask. What you did was in my opinion blatant ignorance to the rules, you misidentified and shot me when you really should have known you had KOS on one person in Gorka, so as a moderator of this community I would really expect more from you and those you are playing with, there is really no excuse for this blatant rule break. I know I sound like a complete jerk right now but I'm really just trying to explain how I’m feeling about this community

    I'm not sure what you mean here. As for the First Person vs Third Person argument, I can see the merits to both sides here but I firmly land on the side of First Person. I cannot see any rationalisation for third person over first person that has convinced me that third person has its place and serves a purpose to enhance RP, which is what we should be focusing on primarily. Any combat rationalisation, or "this is the way it has always been" rationalisation simply does not fly. Combat will always have its place in DayZ, and in DayZRP, but to tailor a policy around that, especially on a RP server, simply does not seem like the logical thing to do. As for "this is the way it always has been", so what? Just because that is the way it has always been done does not mean it is the right, nor the best, way to do it. We should do everything in our power to ensure that the RP experience is as good as it can be and, in my mind, the addition of first person and the exclusion of third person is a step in that direction.

    Thumper threads have always been controversial yes but many times they have made enough impact for a response or even change to occur. They were rants mixed with suggestions. What I see here is just an attempt to farm beans and stir the pot. So allow me to ask a question for staff, why are rant threads with no substance allowed? What do threads that follow this example do for the community other than divide it? There is no reason for them to exist whether it's a rant about lost gear, a rant about bandits or a rant about staff. Unless the thread tries to actually push for change, it should be locked and forgotten. Andrey and Castiel, I like you guys. It may not have always been that way but you two are genuinly good dudes that are trying to hard to be like Thumper, Shark, Rampage and the like. Its not an insult, I like those guys even if they may not like me anymore. But they put themselves on a path where they eventually said fuck it and checked out permanently and I don't think we need history to repeat itself. We don't need to loose more people because they get pissed off at staff.
