    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.

    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?

    Verdict: @IvIercenary [Ghosting]: Guilty [Attempted invalid kill - on sight]: Guilty [Invalid kill - on sight]: Guilty @MoTaVa [Ghosting]: Guilty [Attempted invalid kill - on sight]: Guilty @spillwence [Ghosting]: Guilty @Moe [Ghosting]: Guilty| [Metagaming]: Guilty @Wendigojames [Metagaming]: Guilty @CHARIZARD [Ruleplay]: Guilty @Dusty [BadRP | NVFL ]: Not Guilty Explanation: During this situation there are at least four people who logged in during the active firefight, @IvIercenary @MoTaVa @spillwence & @Moe. All of you were in the process of logging in from a long queue but all were aware of the hostilities that were taking place within the settlement. The beginning of these hostilities had begun once @CHARIZARD killed @Dusty. When you are not in game during the beginning of a firefight/hostilities but decide to log in anyways that is considered ghosting. 13.3 You are not allowed to knowingly log in near an ongoing hostile situation which would give you an unfair advantage due to your location. In order for it to be considered fair, you must be at least 1km away from the hostile situation. If any of you had been IG for the beginning of the firefight and then crashed or timed out it would be ok to log back in as you were already apart of the situation, but if you crashed out before anything happened you would be ghosting if you log back in. In the future if you are made aware of an ongoing firefight, even if you have been sitting in a long queue, do not log in. Once you are told that the fight is over and done with then you may proceed back in game. This does not apply if you are 1 km out from where the firefight is taking place. @MoTaVa & @IvIercenaryYou both will be receiving an attempted invalid kill punishment. MoTaVa you state in your own POV that once you logged in you did your best to stay uninvolved with the whole situation but once spotted by Moe, after sneaking back up into Stary Yar, you decided to shoot him. You had no rights whatsoever on anyone present from this attack because of your ghosting into the situation, given that ghosting is a rule break and any rights you gained as a result of that rule break are null and void. The same reasoning would apply for IvIercenary for his shots on Hebee. 7.4 Kill rights gained from any rule breaks (including but not limited to baiting, invalid initiation) are considered invalid and their use will be punished in the same way as if the kill rights were not obtained. To add onto the rule presented above @IvIercenary due to the fact you had no rights on anyone because of your ghosting but actively involved yourself in the firefight your kill you made on @Wendigojames was not valid. Thus you will be receiving an invalid kill on sight punishment. @Moe As seen in your first video you posted once you are unconscious around the times of 0:25 - 0:29 you begin to relay information of where your unconscious body is and tell your teammates to come revive you. @Wendigojames In Moe’s second video provided you are heard stating the location of an enemy after your death around the times of 2:40 - 3:00. Due to this you both have been found guilty of metagaming, however, Wendigojames you be receiving a verbal warning instead as the information you stated was already known and did not give any sort of advantage to your allies. 11.3 You may not use or give any information about your killer or the location of your body after you are dead, unconscious, when surrendering (F2 animation), handcuffed or have had your radio removed from your character. In the future if you die or go unconscious, it can be tempting to tell your teammates where you are and what happened. The best way to avoid this is to mute right away so you do not relay information, accidentally or not. @CHARIZARD You have been found guilty of Ruleplay. While it is true that you have permanent kill rights on disruptive characters within a settlement Dusty’s actions did not at all warrant a kill. As seen in the video he provided you do not initiate on him nor do you tell him to leave the premises. You instead tell him to follow you to the well where you order him to stay put but Dusty refuses and begins to leave then is shot by you. 5.3 You may not focus on out of character gains to the detriment of RP. "Rule play" is prioritizing rules and OOC information above more appropriate IC actions or behavior. Always prioritize role play over rule play. At no point in time near the well was Dusty an active threat to you or disruptive to the point where killing would be be justifiable. Just because you have the rights does not mean you should use them, especially when there are a numerous amount of options you can take besides killing. For example you could’ve taken Dusty hostage inside the settlement and then escorted him out and had he been non-compliant you would have valid kill rights. You could have also taken him hostage and RP’d with him a little while longer before releasing him. Please keep this in mind the next time a similar situation arises. 7.5 Remember that kill rights are still subject to rule 5.2. You shouldn't use kill rights in situations where it doesn't make in-character sense as it can be seen as rule play. In other words, obtaining kill rights alone does not give you explicit permission to use them. Think about if using kill rights is viable in the current situation. @inar038 At this point in time we would also like to make a mention to you. You state in your POV that you told CHARIZARD to kill Dusty, “since behind the piano house is directly in the middle of our KOS zone, I told sam repeatedly to kill him.” We would like to inform you that there are no KOS zones whatsoever on the servers. You do not have kill rights on every person who enters your settlement, you only have these rights on aggressive or disruptive characters. 14.2 Settlement owners have permanent kill rights against any aggressive or disruptive characters within the settlement communication range as long as using these rights does not conflict with rule 6.4. All players enter settlements at their own risk. If someone walks into your settlement and is in no way hostile or disruptive you do not have kill rights on them, however, if they come into the settlement and start shooting or are extremely hostile it would be fair to say you would have you kill rights. We hope this explanation helps you understand how the kill rights work within a settlement. @Dusty You were accused of BadRP and NVFL, however after going through the video we see no reason to punish you for such. Your roleplay was fine and you were not in a position where you were outnumbered or in an active life threatening situation. However as a reminder to all parties involved if you are clearly outnumbered or act in a way that would put your characters life in danger you would be NVFLing. 5.6 Do not act in a way that indicates no value for your characters life and survival. For example, attempting to kill people when heavily outnumbered, excessively talking back or insulting someone when taken hostage and threatened with death if you don't stop. As for the baiting and AOGM accusations there is nothing to go on except POVS. In this sense it is WvW as there is no video evidence of the situation at the gate or of people glitching into your camp; and while the pictures help us get a feel for how the tents are set up it does not prove anyone glitched into them. We will not take one’s word over the other thus leaving these claims inconclusive. In the future it would be recommended that you get video evidence of the active AOGM or screenshots actively showing it. Outcome: @IvIercenary [Ghosting | Attempted invalid kill - on sight | Invalid kill - on sight]: 7 days 10 points @MoTaVa [Ghosting | Attempted invalid kill - on sight]: 3 days 10 points @spillwence [Ghosting]: 3 days 10 points @Moe [Ghosting | Metagaming]: 3 days 10 points @Wendigojames [Metagaming]: Verbal Warning @CHARIZARD [Ruleplay]: 5 days 10 points @Dusty [BadRP | NVFL ]: No punishment Verdict done by: @Jade, @Lyca & @Elmo

    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.

    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.

    @TheMatt924 @Rylo Actually yes, and to those claiming CDC wouldn't be in another country is incorrect. WHO is an organization comprised of companies like the CDC from different countries. They are just labeled and WHO like militaries under NATO. When the Ebola virus broke out in Africa is was actual CDC personnel who went and dealt with it. My mother in law being one specifically, and honestly if something like this appeared you would have my application in a heartbeat. Me and my Mother In Law always have discussions about her work(as she is a district manager for the South East area of the US for the CDC in immunizations) and it's beyond interesting what she does on a daily basis. If you need someone to help you with teaching members the general knowledge and operations of such an organization I would love to help. Something I'm actually getting ready to go to school for. -edit- as seen in the link I am providing, there are several countries in which they provide services and offices. https://www.cdc.gov/globalhivtb/where-we-work/index.html -alright one last edit- My mom in law said they wouldn't go unless they were invited if outside the USA. But that in all cases they are invited they go because they are the world leader in health.

    Sam Choi POV We met these guys, wanted some information on recent events that have happened to us, so we initiated on them, made them drop their weapons, and took them off into the forest to investigate them. Anon does this, asks them questions which they do speak over each other quite a bit, along with talking back / giving cheek quite a bit. Hamish threatens to kill them a few times if they don't start doing what we are telling them to, and stop talking back. We get some very basic info, hear some shots and believe at that time they could well be apart of the group who's shots we have heard, so we take them further into the woods. From there, Hamish asks them to tell us their story, one at a time, which after arguing back a fair bit, they started to begin, but switched to text rp (just joo at first ) without warning, which was a little bit confusing. It was pretty hard to get any information / rp out of them near the end, which resulted in one of the members of their duo being shot, to get the other to give more information, which eventually did cause a ic reaction and he started speaking a bit more. We then let him run off after we couldn't get anything more from him. On another note i do feel like we were trying to create rp that wasn't really getting much of a response to, very little fear until the guy was shot, and no real replies to me giving them cuts, or threats with the machete, the only reply i got to that was *puts my hand to my face* and that was it.

    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

    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.
