    Link to the source of punishment (report/post): N/A Why the verdict is not fair: N/A Additional statements/comments explaining your point of view: I've been on final warning for about a year now. Originally I had no intention of appealing the points considering I felt it help keep me in line. Now after so much time has past and countless hours in game I feel the time has come to get them removed. I've since followed the rules, been respectful to others, and provided good in game roleplay. The ban the got me perm'd is linked here and I was allowed back into the community by sending an email back in 2016. I've loved playing in this community for the many years I've been here and there really is no other community out there like it. And part of which makes it the best is the set rules and following them which I have done and will continue to do going forward. What would you like to achieve with this appeal: Final Waring removed What could you have done better?: Been more careful and thoughtful IG and stayed within the boundaries of the rules instead of pushing them as I did in the past.

    Hello, I have a question for the OP, Why are you challenging us ICly to attack your settlement but then when we do it you put up a report about an invalid settlement attack? We also had rights from previous hostile encounters that your group has started. These were taken from this radio chatter link Now with that being showed in the report It shows the OP goading us into attacking the settlement my previous video also shows them trying to get us to attack them. Now I would also like to address Bad RP on their behalf. Their group has been attacked multiple times and they show no sense of defeat, in fact, they claim victory after each fight we have bested them But they will not accept it as defeat and it will result in a cycle that will not end. I personally will state this If we were to lose our attacks heavily more than once then we will accept the defeat and move on. I have made deals with groups in the past end of the day it's not my roleplay its everyone's. Now onto the NVFL. So the OP knows he is heavily outnumbered, We take one of their traders to Stary Yar. They offer the OP a deal stating this You leave the town we release your friend and you move on. He declines a simple request he then gets initiated on he does not comply during that moment most of us were like the fuck? and then he runs into his settlement he gets popped at obviously for not complying. He manages to get a cheeky kill and is then gunned down. Now he had no chance at all to survive the situation so that is how it is indeed NVFL. Now onto the ghosting claims one of them was not there beforehand if the connection logs indeed show him just joining after the server restart I want clarification on why he connected. Stating I just didn't know what is going on I don't buy that shit. Each time my group gets into any sorts of disagreement or conflict I get pokes or steam messages. Nobody can be that oblivious to connect to an ongoing firefight in their settlement. If I was the OP and I have seen the numbers we had I would be spamming and be poking everyone in my group to get here to help me. Now onto the initial settlement itself, they glitched tents into a location to where you cannot physically get into. this video shows the AOGM. Now onto our IC reasons to attack the settlement. We are at a state of war they ambushed and killed multiple of my people over the past weeks and we decided enough is an enough we took the fight to their home. I also have video of the hostage situation (My instant reply on shadowplay only saves up to 5mins so I tend to switch in between record and instant reply) Now the gentleman that I executed was talking shit to me in the past I have also had numerous encounters with him in the past as shown above he was killed for lying to us.

    I understand this seems a bit odd, and perhaps a bit drawn out, but I decided I want to start a radio station... and one cannot power a turntable without well power soo here it goes! First things first to power something you need a power source. Since they have not put in the Generator: http://dayz.gamepedia.com/Generator we get to talk about a car battery. An average 12 volt battery is DC currents which is bad for using since it cannot be hooked up to say, a house or in my case a turntable because both only consume AC, and only two countries run on DC per: http://www.trade.gov/mas/ian/ECW/all.html . The one thing you can do is "roleplay" that you connected said car battery to a inverter which in turns makes the DC into AC. If you're feeling a little more technical you can "make one yourself" http://www.brighthubengineering.com/diy-electronics-devices/63708-how-to-build-a-low-cost-high-efficiency-inverter/ . I put quotes around some words because I dislike when I need to roleplay something I don't have, and cannot get. It's just immersion breaking. I am currently looking for a workaround, but this seems like the only option. Now you got your 12v battery on AC power. Great! Now for some math. A typical 12v car battery has about 40-45 amps per hour You need to know the Watts for a device you are currently trying to power. For example, a 60 watt light bulb would be 5amps on a 12 volt battery. That mean your battery would last 8hours in game (40a-h / 5a=8h). I'm unsure of the specific day/night cycle on this server so couldn't tell you how long that is irl then. A quick converter will tell you your Amps. Make sure you specify 12volts. http://rapidtables.com/calc/electric/Watt_to_Amp_Calculator.html So get out there and role play electricians. They can still be important (Sort of). Remember your inverter is important. Without one, you may permanently disable the object you are trying to turn on.

    IM ALIVE! Well, maybe, not quite dead to be sure. Any of you DayZRP Mod OG's may remember me - So it seems my curiosity has gotten the better of me and i'm poking my nose back into the community - seeing what's going on - though I'm not entirely sure if I'll be on the server - prolly just milling about on the forums and all that. Besides, It's been a long time lads - how's everyone been?

    I appreciate the feedback, but reviewing group activity is part of the requirements and staff duties. It is to ensure the group members are not just taking a spot on a roster and not contributing to the group and roleplay of the community. Another reason would be with the additional benefits that can come along with a faction, it is our responsibility to ensure that faction members are actually being active in game and not just adding to the numbers to obtain faction status. I would prefer if group owners did this themselves to be honest, but it's clear we need to step in at some point. Hell, I remember some groups that applied to be a faction where 3 or 4 people hadn't been in game for months and some weren't even whitelisted. If we did not check into group rosters, things like this would slip through the cracks. As a group owner, ensuring people are not just a roster spot is their responsibility. I remember @Ron doing this very well for example, as I'm sure their might be other group owners that looked after group activity without us needing to intervene. I understand perhaps not calling out the group member themselves, if you feel like that is targeting the group member or whatever, but I will not stop with reviewing group in game activity.

    Alright, so looking at a few radio chatters, as well as several in game and radio exchanges I've had in the past, there is a massive issue with the current state of 'immortality' that our characters seem to possess. First let us talk hostile exchanges. It seems that no matter what you do to a character, whether through execution or permanent scar, they just hop right back up. Cut off someone's arm? They suddenly have a fully functional prosthetic that allows them to operate a high powered rifle. Now let's talk realism here. If I were to cut off your dominate arm, even with today's prosthetic limbs you most likely won't be holding an AKM again in the future. Now flash forward to 2 years into the infection and more than likely you are looking at a wooden carved arm at best with, if you're lucky, a hinge put in place at the joints. You definitely wouldn't be able to operate a sophisticated weapon with it. Were you executed? Chances are that bullet to the head won't be so light that you can boast on the radio about having survived, heck chances are you would be out of commission for awhile and would have severe mental trauma, you would not simply heal up, grab a gun, and head out for vengeance. Was your camp ravaged? Were your people slaughtered in a fight? Please don't boast about how everything is fine and dandy, and how no one that has attacked you has had any results. Be realistic, and don't disregard the events that transpired in RP just because it is convenient for you. That is the essence of bad RP, and in many ways Power gaming by disallowing your opponents RP to grow. Just because you love your character doesn't mean they shouldn't face consequences. You are not immortal, stop acting like it.

    Shit, I need to upload some more screens to the gallery just so I don't have to look at this Mother---Fucker post from @PapaMarcus again. Should I just upload some 0.62 screens or should I rather install the old version, hop onto the server and take some screens there?

    If someone asks a specific question I will give a specific answer. That doesn't entail the entirety of what is going to be written will be that complex, it means you need to ask more general questions. Simplicity will be there, and whatever pre-conceived idea you have about what you will see is just that, a prejudged opinion based upon loose information you are handed. As many have said nevertheless, stories no matter how simplified or watered down are like an iceberg, a small amount is visible but a massive amount of it you won't ever see.

    Well intel cpu's have always been the best way to go until recently with AMD ryzen being released. but I'm still gonna say go with intel maybe a i5 6600k or a i7 6 or 7 ,700k . But the more pricy cpu u buy the less u can spend on a gpu so depends on budget if it's the same as the laptop u linked. I would say to the i5 is the one to go with and then look into a 1060/70 or a rx480 /580 for the gpu

    Luke Krey POV. So I was waiting for the lads to bring their hostage to Stary Yarr the negotiations go downhill hostage dies they initiate on the dude on the road he does not comply he no value for lives and dies. then shortly after the boys push the town the server restarts I log back in they have another hostage I help lead the RP. It turns out to be a guy who was chatting shit to me. He then acts non-compliant when someone is questioning him they tell me to kill him so I do so. These guys use rules to bend the outcome of the RP. I will post a video on a previous encounter to show them goading us into a reaction when they thought we had no rights to attack. Now with that being said, there was a fight that broke out that night in the woods up north where they brought the firefight into their settlement. I used my rights to attack the settlement today. I would like to counter with No Value For Life since they tried to 3v16 us and lost.

    I agree with the use and implementation of Breakers. Here's why. There are three reasons people use Text RP. 1: Playing a character of the opposite gender. This cannot be fixed unless you have a very androgynous voice or an impressive vocal range. 2: They do not have a microphone or do not feel comfortable using a microphone. You try telling someone with severe anxiety "lol dude just use a mic who cares". It doesn't end up well. Although I don't agree with accommodating people who have a microphone but won't use it because of their shyness or anxiety or otherwise, it doesn't mean you can bash them or trivialize their decision. 3: You're looking to add depth to your roleplay. This one will be the majority by far. If you use text roleplay and you shorten your actions or words, it has less substance and content. The more you shorten and simplify it, the less substance it has to it. Substance is important to roleplay, it's what makes the roleplay believable. If you make your actions and dialogue super simple and short, a lot of impact, significance, and general opinion of text based roleplay is lost. Really long sentences don't make the roleplay any better either. You need to find a sweet spot with the length of an action or dialogue line. I'm all for typing a lot of stuff, but I do that all the time anywhere I usually am. You also need to expand your vocabulary and consider small details, plus what the other character will see when you do your action. Here's an example of something that is often seen in text roleplay, in terms of complexity and length. *The man smiles at you.* *The man coughs a few times.* *The man reloads his gun.* Easy to follow, easy to read. Here's the issue though, it doesn't build any character or have any kind of substance to it aside from the bare basics. Here's an example of the same actions, but with different vocabulary, the words put in different places, and attention to detail plugged in. *The man blinks a few times, then grinning at the idea.* *A loud series of coughs comes from the man.* *He removes the magazine from his gun, replacing the rounds and putting it back in.* These lines are saying the exact same things, but they put in a bit more characterization. In the first example of simple roleplay- You can tell the character is amused. In the same example with some different words, you can tell the character is not only amused, but he visibly processed and thought about what it was that amused him. In the second example of simple roleplay- The character simply coughs. Nothing more or less. In the same example but rephrased, it draws suspicion and wonder that the character might have a chronic issue, is or was a smoker, or maybe is sick. In the third example of simple roleplay- The character reloads. Easy. In the same example, but with a bit more detail, you can tell exactly what he's doing in order to reload the gun rather than making a few arm movements, so it shows that the character knows what they're doing with a firearm. The important thing to take note of is that none of these actions were that much longer than the original ideas. They bring more character to the action and improve the quality a bit more. It merely takes an extra second or two to make a dialogue or action line turn from "*smiles at you*" to "*directs a grin toward the man, seeming enthused*". The more substance and effort people put into text roleplay, the better the overall roleplay will become. Believe me.
