    Oh my, I'm only seeing this now... Holy shit am I boiling inside. How low has the standard of RP fallen? How can this be seen as anywhere remotely acceptable? THIS IS NOT MADMAX OR SAW MOVIE. WE ARE IN CHERNARUS, 2 YEARS INTO A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE. YOU DON'T TAKE RANDOM PEOPLE AS HOSTAGES, BRAND THEM AS SLAVES, MAKE THEM SING SONGS, KILL THEM IF THEY REFUSE AND THEN RELEASE THEM LIKE NOTHING HAPPENED. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK, HOW IS THAT NOT BADRP?! Compliance rule is for hostages who do not comply to orders that are reasonable considering the situation. Specifically the rule is there so that as a hostage taker you may use lethal force should the hostage attempt to escape, pick up a weapon or other action that may be a threat to you or your group. It is definitely NOT intended to allow you to kill hostages because you made a demand for them to sing, jump on one leg while juggling or recite japanese poems and they refuse. Killing someone for not singing. That doesn't make any fucking sense at all in the game or lore you are in. What were you thinking? No, you cannot. You may not give unreasonable demands to hostages. They are your hostages, not personal play toys where you can humiliate the character / person behind it. If you're taking someone hostage, you MUST have some kind of reason for it that makes sense IC. You don't take a random person you found hostage to play life or death games with them. I don't care if your character is a psycho, mass murderer or a disturbed individual, it's bad RP. I've watched the video and it is sickening how low the bar has fallen and that this kind of RP is now days deemed acceptable, even worse that it was deemed OK by the staff team who signed this verdict. All I hear and see in the video is your group fucking around playing musical contest and giggling like little girls as if you're playing Second Life and not DayZ and you're forcing people to humiliate themselves for your own enjoyment because if not you will kill their character. That's post apocalyptic zombie role play where your characters are fighting for survival? Is this what hostile role play has been reduced to, robbing and making random bystanders sing songs for no apparent reason? Jesus fucking christ, last time it was that bad it was in May 2013 when all 12 year olds joined to play on no-KoS server and wanted to be bad asses. I won't be issuing any punishments to any of the people here this time, but for fucks sake, step up your game cause this shit that you've just shown in that situation is ridiculous. You're playing DayZRP, not Chernarus Life, ACT LIKE IT. /endrant

    Good evening Gentleman, I'm Fran Miller, the Boom stick's Spanish Guy according to Lord Aristocrat's accurate description.(as follows): "Whilst the PAU are bandaging their wounded, Fran the Spanish stallion takes out his boom stick and starts blasting away at the remaining hostage takers. He succeeds in killing three but is soundly defeated by the fourth. Tragically" I've made a comic of the story, I hope you enjoy. And I will be making a video fur sure, but with all the art I can...You can check other videos of mine in the youtube Channel Click storms...look for "Sammy" which is an episode with english subs...I've recently uploaded another one called "Ring of fire" but I didnt put the english subtitles yet so my comments are in spanish... I also going to describe my part of the story as this event has been our particular Red Wedding and should have an important episode either in the current Lore or in the next one. 0) I have to say, first of all that I'm so happy of the community, I think the mass mayority of you are excelent roleplayers, either the bandits and the Hostages. Specially the small version of Mr Chow that for a second I even thought it was indeed Mr Chow. 1) I'm inside the church really chilled, enjoying the music and the company, I'm not part of any group as the only person I previously known was Dr Elisabeth, who luckly for her, went to sleep before the blood bath. 2) I go outside to the door to Smoke a cigarrete and talk with the guards of the door when I see a really doggie North Korean Style offficial talking agressively to the guard and In the background some shots are starting to get deployed. 3) Knowing what was coming I rapidly take out my M4 with 60 bullets and a lot of spec ops expirience acumulated through my life, I've been in worse situations but...I take a look of the good people inside, all with their hands up and I decided they are not fighters, they are just normal nice people...I cant risk them...Damm, I put my hands up... 4) All in a circle, some pyscho bandits start to circle around and at the same time the outside guard I just been talking got murdered but this people...he was a good boy...RIP. The tension is increccendo, and the boyfriend of the girld of my right starts to become extremelly paranoid and stress...hyperventilating, he mange to pull out his gun and shoot...there is a cross fire, actually I think the bandits do a hell of a blue on blue expirience (friendly fire)... //The desync doesn't allow me to recognize the situation, I thought someone else has come through the back door and whipe out some bandits...otherwise, I have to say, I problably would have been decided not to take action, as the bandit roleplay was excellent, I have to admit, so for my contribution to the massacre, I'm sorry.../// 5) All that is left is few guards injured and bandiging themselves...and we are a lot of good people...I have a quick look to the girl on my left and told her everything will be ok...(The last words she'll ever listen out of anyone else...RIP)...they are scared as hell and The rest of the bandits are seriusly nervous and agressive...You can smell something terrible can happend...but winners anticipate: I have a quick look and take an account, there are 4 guards, 3 on my side of the room, seriously injured and one bastard with an akm with a 75 bullets drum...I cant risk to take action as the guy in the opossite side of the room could kill at least 5 people trying to reach me and I can't allow this to happend... But! Surprise! He put his gun on the floor and start's bandaging...It is the moment, I try to act fast but with precision...I succesfully take out the easier guy, turn around and kill a guillie that was just on my back...and then recieve some inaccurate shotts from another bandit next to the front door...I make use of my Army expirienced mussle memory and whipe him ass well...but damm...the 4rth guy is almost ready to shoot and has crouch to avoid killing inocents...I turn my gun as a Surgeon, and aim carefully to not kill inocents...but this manuver takes me time enought to let the bastard shoot first...I starting to recieve 7,62 impacts on my chest...I'm falling but still shooting...I think I manage to hit him once or twice but I breath gets interrupted...the last think I see is one of the Knight-Cowbows deploy his magnum and shoot the fucker in the face screaming "Bastard"...I know Im dying...my last thougth is about Samantha...my last valuable recent memory...I'm happy she is not here...I'm going with you Jonnhy (cash). Thanks to all and sorry if my action was shit...But adrenaline pumps out....and you never know...So many armed hostages for so few bandits...That's a thing to consider ass well. PS - I have to say that the guy that was "lagging" did not make a good action...as make a clear use of metagaming...which was interrupting the role flow because a supose technical problem, but desync was quite big...so you never know...

Epilogue “In an urban society, everything connects. Each person's needs are fed by the skills of many others. Our lives are woven together in a fabric. But the connections that make society strong also make it vulnerable.” - Threads, 1984 Not a soul could have possibly fathomed that a victorious Chernarus would ultimately sign the death warrant of all civilization. The world would appear dumbfounded as the work of rebuilding a broken country would eventually crumble. The peace that was achieved, was really what doomed us all. Nobody thought something like this could happen, the stuff of movies and TV shows. And in the off chance that something catastrophic did occur most people trusted the authorities and government to do the right thing and protect their citizens. The connectivity of a modern globalized society had led humanity like lambs into a forest full of wolves. We assumed the best and did not pay attention to what was actually happening. Ignorant, self-absorbed people who knew everything and yet understood nothing. Those observant individuals that saw it coming were too few and were disregarded and branded as conspiracy theorists and nerds. What they saw coming was not the plague itself, but how humanity’s illogical handling of a logical crisis would ultimately doom it to near-extinction. Global chaos that has been seen in the past will not compare to what will be seen in the coming days…or after those days had passed. Chernarus had made great strides in rebuilding since the conclusion of the bloody 2009 civil war and was on route to becoming something of a power in the region. Foreign investment in the Chernarussian coal, mining, gas, and agriculture industries had swelled the workforce and created many jobs in remote places where none before existed. South Zagoria was still a poor recovering province, the recovery period had ended, and revitalization efforts were planned to revamp the area. Tourism had picked up as a result of the war, Chernarus got its name in the international headlines and people who didn’t know the country existed before 2009 became aware of it. While Chernarus had not officially joined NATO for fear of losing national sovereignty, it did agree to host several bases within Chernarus. International Airports were expanded, allowing international flights heading to Asia or back to Western Europe to stop and refuel at a central place without having to fly to Dubai for a connecting flight. In the wake of the civil war, NAPA was disbanded by leader Josef Prizak, and most of its members joined the CDF and accepted general amnesty from the government. The Chedaki were hunted down viciously by the State, capturing all of its leadership that was not apprehended or killed during the civil war and put them on trial, many being executed for the genocide, insurrection, and murder conducted during the war. Despite Chernarussian-Russian relations being quite amicable immediately following the civil war, tensions would again rise to a boiling point between the two countries. Even with the election of a popular center-right statist nationalist party and a booming economy, military escalation was a frequent occurrence on the northern border. A marriage between a Chernarussian woman and a Russian man was attacked by right sector Chernarussian extremists in late April 2017. Following this event, protests, political demonstrations, calls for secession of ethnic Russian territories such as northern South Zagoria and Belozersk and ultimately violence led the State to declare martial law in South Zagoria on May 3rd, 2017. The province was gripped with fear and tension, and some citizens left to go to western areas that were considered to be safe, their belongings and vehicles left behind to rot for fear of another civil war. However, the attention of the world was focused elsewhere and not on the developing situation in Chernarus. It all began with seemingly benign activity at an old storage base north of Severograd, the easternmost base in a chain of facilities that stretched west along the Black Mountains. After the fall of the USSR and Chernarussian independence, the base was handed over to the fledgling CDF (Chernarussian Defense Force), and any memory of the base and its activities were forgotten. The sites were sealed to the public during Soviet times, and the local populace knew little of the activities of these bases. Whatever the Soviets were doing here was done in isolation, and rumors permeated through the region as to the origins of the operation, as it seemed as if the base had been there for an eternity. On the 7th of July CDF troops were sent to the base where they established a series of checkpoints on surrounding roads, stopping all foot or vehicle traffic and turning it back. Foot patrols began to move through the woods around the base in an attempt to make up for the abysmal condition of the base’s perimeter fences. A video filmed of a Russian helicopter flying into the base was posted on Twitter the same night, igniting a controversy. The following day the residents of Kamensk and Nagornoe were rounded up, those from Nagornoe were escorted south to Severograd and housed in the local school without any explanation as to the reason of their relocation other than their “personal safety”. The civilians from Kamensk who were the main witnesses to the whole incident disappeared completely, the most common rumor being that they had been held inside the base itself. National outrage ensued, and in the meantime, events escalated considerably around midnight, when an apparent disagreement between the two sides of the base resulted in the departure of the Russians back across the border. In the early hours of the 10th, the Russian air force completely annihilated the storage base that was the source of the whole controversy, leaving only a couple buildings standing and fifty dead Chernarussian personnel within the base. In response, Chernarussian jets from the Vybor Airbase raided Russian border posts starting a back and forth between each military. Chernarus awoke to a war in South Zagoria as national demonstrations and outbursts of violence occurred in the morning. Severograd began experiencing attacks from several soldiers that appeared to be rabid and unresponsive, the soldiers having emanated from the base. Many were severely burned or partially dismembered, and yet did not seem to care or respond with pain to their injuries. The first call came in from a farm north of the city, reporting three soldiers staggering out of the forest biting and attacking livestock. The station lost contact with the patrol sent to check on the farm. To make matters worse, following the bombing of the base and the subsequent dispersal of CDF troops in the area, Russian artillery launched an all-out bombardment of Kamensk, Nagornoe, and Severograd countryside. A man in Severograd who was interviewed by a local news station in Novodmitrovsk said the following about that morning: “The Russian bombardment was a distraction from whatever went on in the base that night. They had some stake in the course of events there after all the bombardment did little damage to any civilian or military structure. The goal was to distract the international press for as long as possible.” The Russian ploy worked according to plan, as the international news was fixed on the fighting and the armed confrontations and not on the strange attacks taking place near the site of the bombing. In the afternoon a wave of infected hit Severograd from the north, overwhelming the police the already packed hospital. Many of the people brought into the hospital were bleeding from the eyes, and had developed rashes similar to poison oak that secreted a clear fluid. On the 11th the north awoke to terror in the streets as those exposed to the virus on the previous day had turned. The authorities were completely caught off guard, as the few police officers on duty were not nearly sufficient to respond to phone calls coming in from their precincts. In the north-east towns around it were almost completely devoid of any military presence, putting them in a poor position to contain what was occurring. The virus was estimated to have a 6 hour incubation period, and that the average person would begin to attack non infected individuals 16 hours post exposure. Notably, within the first 6 hours of infection, coughing and sneezing were the most prevalent side effect. Any concentration of sick individuals seemed to focus the virus, making going into a hospital a near death sentence, especially with their patients so late into the stages of infection. On the 12th people in Turovo began to flee en mass causing a massive traffic jam and chaos as infected began to attack trapped drivers while soldiers at the checkpoint desperately attempted to assist. To combat the spreading chaos two battalions of CDF troops from Miroslavl arrived in South Zagoria and assembled in the Chernogorsk area, manning an extensive string of checkpoints, military camps, and refugee safe zones, the former built during the period of martial law. Local units were mustered and deployed to checkpoints and military bases, and all military operations in the province were directed from the Balota airfield. The turmoil in the north east spilled into Berezino and Solnichniy, as infected spread into the two towns, sending a wave of refugees down the coastal road as the pandemonium on the eastern coast escalated. Luckily most refugees stopped at Elektrozavodsk and camped out on the eastern and western shore of the city. The situation worsened near Vybor, as the airbase was rushed by infected at the northern and eastern perimeter. A swarm of CAF (Chernarussian Air Force) aircraft conducted strikes all day trying to halt the takeover of the base, but the bombing, rocket, and strafing runs only attracted more infected to the base. By this time the much of western Chernarus had major outbreaks, many spurring from refugees fleeing west from South Zagoria. Even before proper border control actions could be taken many tourists and Chernarussian citizens had fled the country by air via the Novigrad and Miroslavl International Airports to Europe, and the Balkans, triggering outbreaks in those areas. Russia moved to close the border with Chernarus off completely, and Takistan shut down its border, boxing Chernarus in. Meanwhile, in Elektrozavodsk a flotilla of privately owned boats and military vessels from Miroslavl and ports further south had sailed up the coast to attempt a mass exodus of the city, which was largely successful in leaving only a couple dozen civilians and CDF who stayed in the city. Unfortunately, this noble effort only served to move the outbreak to Miroslavl where the docks were overwhelmed with infected and refugees fresh off the boats, as the CDF had not set up a virus screening area for incoming refugees. The only major cities left in South Zagoria by then were Chernogorsk, Elektrozavodsk, and Zelenogorsk along with a handful of towns north of the coast. On the 17th, the CDF was struggling to hold onto South Zagoria with developing outbreaks in other areas in Chernarus bleeding dry reserves, meaning that South Zagoria could expect no further reinforcement as units further west were busy containing the epidemic near their bases, consequently it was on this day that help from abroad finally arrived in earnest. 200 UN peacekeepers and some 300 doctors and researchers were sent to Miroslavl where a large research center was established. A detachment of 100 were quickly dispatched to Chapaevsk where a base was created for treatment and research. A massive NATO fleet arrived off the coast of Chernarus, having been underway to the Green Sea since earlier in the week, joining an existing flotilla of NATO ships that had begun to assemble during the previous months of unrest. Now the fleet's goal was securing ground zero and preventing the loss of crucial NATO bases in the area. The Russian Black Sea fleet was waiting for the arriving ships, and had also been slowly deploying ships to the area as NATO had. NATO operations on July 17th focus mainly on reinforcing CDF troops in South Zagoria, deploying troops from its Kirovograd base to combat outbreaks in the city itself. Mostly US troops from the Utes garrison are deployed to South Zagoria, US Army troops dispatched to Chernogorsk and US Marines to the Elektrozavodsk area. Russian strikes mostly target border areas close to home, while NATO flies directly in support of the CDF and its forces on the ground. The fighting prior to the epidemic was put on the backburner in favor of each side defending its interests, Chernarus and Russia agree to a cessation of hostilities as the Outbreak worsened. The bombing carried into the 19th, and the CDF and NATO defense line began to falter, falling late in the morning sending a wave of infected towards Chernogorsk as US forces retreated from the city amid the infected and severe riots. By the afternoon Zelenogorsk was completely cut off, and the CDF forces within the city eventually withdrew to the countryside to ride out the crisis and refused to abandon the province completely. That night Chernogorsk was set ablaze, with many civilians ransacking stores of what supplies they had left while others locked up in apartments and partied late into the night. Around midnight the downtown International Hotel was struck by a cargo plane carrying relief supplies that had veered off course, killing all on board. By daybreak on the 20th, Chernogorsk was in shambles as CAF helicopters continued to search for refugees in areas deemed to have been lost and were often seen flying at telephone pole height for maximum visibility. The second wave of NATO, Russian, and CDF bombing began shortly after noon, spreading the infected westwards into the north Miroslavl province as they followed the bombing and fleeing people. On the 21st, the remainders of civilization within South Zagoria either gave up or were overwhelmed. Many civilians who had not already left or been evacuated fled to the Vavilovo and Kamenka checkpoints, bottlenecking the road and making it impossible for any vehicles to leave along the main highways headed into Miroslavl province. Thousands of foreigners trapped in airports across the country began to depart as their CDF guards left, hoping to find refuge elsewhere after being detained inside the airport for a week. Most of western Chernarus was in chaos, with only coastal cities being secured while the countryside was either bombed or fought over as the CDF slowly began to withdraw leaving many rural areas to fend for themselves. At night a massive storm erupted across the entire region with tumultuous seas and raging winds. Only adding to the catastrophe, a cruise ship, the Costa Risacca, carrying some 3,000 passengers, struck a rock formation during the gale and went down several miles off the coast of South Zagoria. The ship sank to the bottom, leaving those who hadn't gone down with the ship or drowned to try and bring their lifeboats ashore. A large cargo ship was forced into Chernarussian waters by the storm. Instead of risking life and limb, the crew chose to beach the ship. The storm raged into early hours of 24th, and by morning, Chernarus was eerily quiet. Novigrad, Primorsk, and Miroslavl prepared for the worst. Russia moved in and enforced a no-fly zone over South Zagoria. After two weeks, the majority of Chernarus was a desolate burnt-out shadow of its former self. By the conclusion of week two, Ukraine and Turkey were suffering from a total societal breakdown, and many areas across Europe, Asia, and the Americas were containing major outbreaks in and around transportation hubs. So it was, the decline of humanity was insured by the failures of our own arrogance. While our globalized society connected people in ways unfathomable to our ancestors, it also revealed a vital flaw in our very being. As a result of our interconnectivity, the infection was able to travel far and wide before anyone was able to throw the alarm. From Tokyo to Paris, Anchorage to Buenos Aires, the infected walked among us and war raged. Our nature of abstract blindness made us weak and vulnerable, and thus we suffered. Even what was occurring in one's own country was secondary to the drama unfolding right in their own neighborhoods. Similar stories would play out within nearly every country and continent on earth, all with one inevitable final climax. After a month, the remains of a global society was crucified on the graves of those who built it. However, resistance to the virus and its after effects remained as entire nations attempted to eradicate the threat in the midst, the winners and losers of this titanic clash yet to be determined. Credit to Majoo for headers.

    Link to the situation: Multiple things 1: General attitude 2: Heavy-handedness/overly strict Feedback: 1. Your general attitude and behavior as of late shows you to be out of touch with what is actually occurring on the server and in the community, and shows that you've made very irrational decisions recently as well as in the past. The first link shows that you don't understand what is actually happening on the server, which is very troublesome as you are doing things that are meant to restrict and constrain hostile RP. However, because most of the server is peaceful if not neutral, you're really just fucking over the minority of people who do play as hostile characters and bandits. Yes, this is your community and your server, but when you put forth suggestions, rule changes, etc or just make changes (especially some that have drastic effects on the RP and gameplay) without taking into account what your staff team says or what the community thinks about the idea, you are going to piss off a lot of people and push a lot of people away from the community. With our current population, this is something that cannot happen. The more people you piss off and push away, the less revenue the site has, the standard of RP lowers, and the server numbers continue to get lower. If you this community is to survive, we need to attract new players and keep our current ones. This community could not handle another tendy-wave of the same size as the first one. The second link has you saying the following "I am primarily thinking of some PvPers initiating on everyone and destroying the event". This shows that you are extremely negative against banditry or people who happen to get into PVP more than others. You believe that hostile RP would ruin everything and destroy it all, when in fact it could potentially create some interesting RP. Of course, you'd never know that because you avoid any and all hostile RP (even the potential for hostile RP) that comes your way. Hostile/bandit RP is still RP. PVP can be a byproduct of that. Nobody is ever forced into PVP. If they get initiated on, and don't comply, their death is their fault. Their life is in their own hands, unless a mistake or a rulebreak occurs. The fact that you're severely restricting hostile RP just because you don't like it, and just because you think it's a majority of the server is very worrying. If you want people to have fun in your community, you need to cater to more than just one type of RP. Thirdly, your replies on this status update also show that you have a terrible attitude towards certain playstyles and groups of people within the community. I will go more in depth on your replies and behavior in the status update and the circumstances surrounding the status update in my next bit of feedback, but for this part, I will focus on the following quote: "I am tired of that PvP banter shit that's going on currently and people treating rule 5.1 like a fucking joke". Nobody is treating rule 5.1 as a joke, as you suggest they are. This gives off the idea that you are extremely against any and all PVP. Again, nobody is forced into PVP unless a rulebreak occurs. The issue of people solely seeking out PVP is no longer as big as you think it is. The people who have abused the rules have been dealt with. You can relax with your persecution of anybody titled a PVPer now. Lastly, and I have no links for this, but people have been denied staff positions simply because of who they are friends with. I could understand if the person who was denied has shown to have a terrible attitude towards others, posts flamey or inappropriate things constantly, or any other negative things like those, but to deny someone simply because of who they are friends with is terrible. It once again shows that you have some sort of hate or focused negativity for a certain group of people. As the leader of a community, I would think that you'd want to be welcoming to everybody and remain at the very least neutral with active members of your community. Obviously you're human and have your own emotions and own opinions, but if you expect others in your community to behave well and be positive members in the community, perhaps it would be a good idea to follow the same guidelines you enforce on the members of your community. Nobody likes a hypocrite. 2. The first link of the second spoiler above shows the situation in which you permanently banned someone over them saying that they understood that what they did was a rulebreak. I understand that he did have a bit of an attitude, but permanently banning someone over some things that are so miniscule is way too heavyhanded. I did not agree with that at the time, and I still do not agree with that action. Giving them 5-10 warning points would have sufficed better, and it would have ensured that we didn't unnecessarily lose someone/multiple others from the community for something so small. The above link shows that their is a history of this behavior. The second link happened yesterday, and shows the situation in which you revoked the whitelist of someone for posting a literally harmless joke in an offtopic thread. @Boston Basher posted the following: "PVP > RP". This was posted in a thread titled "Unpopular opinions". Seeing as how the thread was in the offtopic section, the standards for warnings in that section is more lax. Likewise, other posts in the thread were humorous and clearly jokes. Posting a joke about enjoying PVP over RP was on the same level as the previous posts in the thread. Even if the statement was a fully serious one, stating that you enjoy PVP more than RP, revoking somebody's whitelist over that is so tyrannical and stupid that it is dumbfounding. The following links (1, 2, 3) show you taking it completely seriously and massively blowing things out of proportion. I know for a fact that what he said was no worth any sort of punishment. If anybody else but you had looked at the post, the same outcome would not have occurred. These are just some of the examples of you blowing things out of proportion or responding in disproportionate ways. I already stated above that the more things you do to piss off members in your community, the more it hurts the community and the worse it will be. You need to be careful with your actions and behavior, or else another chicken tendy wave WILL happen again. The whole tendy wave began after Echo received arguably unjustified points for a picture of a chicken nugget that was in the shape of a penis. Of course, some of the behaviors he showed along with his friends afterwards were not appropriate, however, that is not the point. Giving out unjust warnings and permabanning people for bullshit reasons will piss off a lot of people, and rightfully so. Nobody likes to feel like they were wronged, and when it happens multiple times, or it's shown that it happens many times to other people that they care about, they're going to react in terrible ways. Unless you want another tendy wave to happen, please follow my suggestions below. Suggestions for improvement: Take a backseat when it comes to running the community. Take care of everything else outside of implementing and enforcing rules, and allow the many staff members that have been recruited for the sole purpose of running the community for you, do their job. Everybody panics when you say "I got this". That is not a good sign. That shows that you are unpredictable and have a short fuse. Your actions are hurting the community, but you don't seem to realize that. The community is better and runs more smoothly when you are inactive, so please for the sake of the community, let your staff team do the task that they are here to do in the first place. Calling @Rolle for his POV. Please provide any video evidence you have.

    Link to the situation: N/A Any supporting evidence or notes: I definitely don't have any but there are pictures and video circulating. Feedback: I have been talking with several people about this and I feel it was time to address the owner of the community in which this takes place. What I am speaking about has been occurring since I joined the community but from hearing about more recent and blatant occurrences it has lead me to write this. In the past there have been several occurrences of internet pedophilia and pornography with minors depicted of people in this community. Some examples of this, with no names said, are a Skype stream of a 17 year old girl masturbating in front of other minors and adults doing the same thing. Nude pictures of an 18 year old being sent to a 15 year old. Spoken sexual harassment to minors in the community as well. As well as The mass circulation of these photos and the constant talk about these acts. I personally know all about this which is saying something because I am really a no name in this community and I am really only known for an example of pedophilia which I will PM you about in depth after I post this because it needs to addressed and I have waited to long. My point is that I, a no name, know in detail about all of these acts so that leads me to believe that you too know even more about hem then I do. What shocks me is that in most cases nothing is done about this. Instead you focus more on banning people who criticize you and simply turn a blind eye to this. Now I only know what I see on the commutation and it affirms my prior statement. In fact in the case of one of these cases of the spreading of pornography depicting minors a member of staff focused solely on crushing rumors of one of the spectators owning photographic records of this instead of punishing those involved and the person who made the porn itself. It was completely swept under the rug from mine and others point of view. In fact, in the past the victim was permanently banned for it and not perpetrator. They have been able to to stay in the community. This is just my opinion of what I know occurred and what I've seen done by the current and Ex-staff. I'm not trying to be the Corey Feldman of Dayzrp right now and this has nothing to do with the current political climate surrounding this type of thing I just thought that now would be a good time to address it. Suggestions for improvement: Put this problem at the forefront of your mind and at the top of your list of things to deal with in the community before it comes back to bite the community on it's collective ass. You might think that it was all done by the persons involved choices and the responsibility doesn't fall on you but it most certainly does. All these people met on your gaming community and the people who posses the aftermath circulate it with other people in your community. You are fully responsible to take the necessary actions to make sure the current and past perpetrators are stopped and punished for the actual CRIMES they committed inside your community.

    Link to the situation: Any supporting evidence or notes: See above friends. Feedback: Hello Jim, I am a concerned community member in possession of an audio/visual recording of you behaving poorly whilst in a conversation, acting in a staff member's capacity, with several community members and staff members. Overall I found your conduct to be extremely unprofessional, your attitude biased and your demeanour to be absolutely unrepresentative of what a staff member should be. For context, my fellow roleplayers, my friend @Para is the current group owner of the Nexum Co. group, a group of slave traffickers consisting of security of various nationalities, beliefs and creeds, slaves with the same diversity and, of course, a cast of roleplayers with whom I have had the privilege to roleplay with. As somebody who has roleplayed extensively, with over 1400 hours logged in DayZRP in the last year, I feel as if there is some credence lent to my judgement regarding what is good and bad roleplay. With that being said, on to the meat of the situation. Nexum Co. met the PCC, a group of left-leaning, self-proclaimed communists and socialists, in the town of Vybor. Roleplay ensued, my character disliked the fact that communists were in South Zagoria, once again trying to organise due to the previously negative history of communist uprisings in Chernarus. The culture of Chernarus is so virulently fearful of and anti-communist that laws were passed to suspend their capacity to organise and unify. It is no surprise that my character and the characters of those whom you and yours would denounce as bad roleplayers are virulently anti-communist, as they are products of their backwards, uneducated and cultural setting. Such is their hatred that they would hurl various insults at them, as discussed in the video, as well as maintain a general air of hostility towards a foreign, taboo presence in their country. This is how our characters should be roleplayed, I have no complaints in that regard, however, you, though you were not present for the situation whatsoever, and your friends, seemed to take issue with our roleplay. As such, a discussion was in order to hash out our differences and come to a reasonable compromise. As is evident from the video, as well as your people's behaviour prior to and during our recording, this was evidently not your intention. When I entered the room, I, as well as my friends, were told that our roleplay is trash and that we are bad roleplayers. Needless to say, I was not recording, but I was suitably irritated by somebody I've never met before calling my roleplay shit. However, we continued the conversation and seemed to be getting somewhere for a bit, then, as seen in the video, it went downhill as most of your people seemed to be irritated not because we dropped the homophobic F word or that we were virulently anti-communist, but simply because the roleplay did not go their way. This shit happens and both you and the people of your group, aside from Cosmo, in that room, evidently have not learned this important lesson. Anyway, aside from the insults and general pettiness, the conversation really wasn't going anywhere because your people were grasping at straws but, as he does most of the time, Para tried to be reasonable and offered a compromise. As is seen in the video, he agreed that we will have an internal group discussion about the matter and decide what to do then. This was fully supported by myself and Saffy but, alas, this was not good enough for you and your friends. Instead of ending the conversation on an amicable note, you continued on, making subtle threats about taking things to Rolle, using the large number of staff in the group as an excuse to intercede and, most of all, left the conversation like an immature child when you didn't get your way. Now, as a regular community member, being browbeaten by a staff member in a TS channel for roleplaying my character does not sit well with me at all. There were several things wrong with you being in that situation, namely the inherent bias you possess as you are a member of the PCC, so anything you say to Rolle regarding this really should be taken with a grain of salt; you were also not present for the discussed situation yet you deigned to intercede and denounce our roleplay as bad and, what's more, attempted to force change on us as a group simply because your friends told you that we are shit roleplayers. How you can pass judgement and attempt to force change as somebody with that degree of personal involvement, without being involved in the complained situation, is beyond my meagre abilities of comprehension. Overall, you demonstrated a bias as obvious as a ten inch penis, involved yourself in a situation which you knew nothing about, which also involved your group members, and, furthermore, decided to leave the conversation before its natural conclusion because we weren't folding to your bullying tactics. It was unimpressive to witness as a community member, and that is as nicely as it can be phrased. Suggestions for improvement: Don't threaten community members, vaguely or otherwise, do not involve yourself or attempt to act in a staff capacity when there is evident self-interest in a situation and, finally, act in a manner befitting the title "Co-owner" of this community.

    Link to the situation: Any supporting evidence or notes: No because you won't read them anyway, I will just get to the bulk of the feedback that you will probably also ignore. Feedback: Fact 1. This was a fairly poor written response, back during my time in staff people were actually expected to put thought into their closing statements it's a shame that you're not. But then again you never had to put anything towards your rank other than money so I'm not surprised in this. Fact 2: I did not directly call any Transgender in this thread mentally Ill. I suppose one can argue indirectly yes I did as you stated in your "Closing statement" , I was merely stating that maybe Macbrine and Joe should not make fun of those people. Allow me to explain: We are constantly fed a narrative that we should not make fun of "transgender" people because it is discrimination and the deeper argument behind this narrative that if you do indeed tell them that they have a problem and tell them that they are not the gender they truly believe they are it is bullying and is the reason that 46% of most young transgender people commit suicide. This is entirely false. We as human beings should not mainstream delusion it is unhealthy and unethical. The fact that those numbers of suicide are only equivalent with Jews under Nazi Germany rule should really speak to you on something. Because I can tell you this, they are definitely not treated the same, and if you believe this you are as delusional as the people with this illness, that need help, and should really considering taking a read in any history book. So the only logical conclusion for even an untrained professional in the medical field to come to is that there is something deeper than just a bullying issue, it is a deep seeded mental issue, This progressive movement that holds these beliefs true are actually the most regressive form of people and you, are showing this exact attitude in this appeal. If anything I was telling people to not joke about such a thing, to not laugh at such a thing, as it is not funny. We do not tell schizophrenic people such as my mother that the people that they are afraid of in the walls are real, and that society is just being mean to them by telling them they're not. We do not laugh in the face of bi-polar people when they have breakdowns and freak the fuck out. We help these people seek treatments for the disorders, encourage them to get help by making them face facts even if it is sad and harsh, trust me no one wants to be diagnosed with these issues. I could literally go on and on all day and explain to you that why ignoring these facts are bad for these people but I will not because you will not read this anyway more than likely. Either way, it is never okay to make fun of the mentally Ill, and the fact that gender identity disorder, now referred to as gender dysphagia is legitimately a mental disorder plaguing people and I choose to address it as such as many others do and I state it is not okay to make fun of these people is utter hogwash. You had no basis for my post to actually be flaming, or actually being hate speech. You simply asked a rhetorical question then /yeeted my thread. With probably one of the saddest excuses for a closing statement that I've seen in a while. Suggestions for improvement: 1) Have some fucking pride in your work and what you say, because as an administrator that closing statement was pathetic. 2) Become educated on issues before you have an opinion, because it is clear that you are not when it comes to this topic. 3) Stop being ignorant when it comes to facts such as this, it is only hurting these people, not helping them get better, as I said we as humans need to stop mainstreaming delusion and need to start calling things what they are.

    Members of the community, I have been sitting here for about 15 minutes staring at a blank topic creation form, debating with myself the best way to ease people into what is going to be a long and critical post, but the more and more I thought on it I came to a realization that I cannot beat around the bush on this issue, so I'll just out and say it. The community is dying, and it's all YOUR fault. Yes you, the person sitting behind the computer reading this post. You are the reason the community is dying, and you are the only one that can stop it. I know it sounds pretty finger pointy, but the fact is that I too am part of the problem, and unless we ALL take steps to fix the community, then frankly it will not last much longer. The evidence is, quite frankly, depressing (See a post on statistics here). When I joined the community back in early 2015 there were 2 servers., A few months later there were 4, and all of them had queues to get into during prime time. During that time there was never not someone to roleplay with. You could throw a stone and hit 3 groups of five just randomly about the triangle (which back then consisted of green mountain to the south, the airfield to the north, and Novy to the east). Sense then however the numbers have dwindled due in part to several reasons such as the lack of content updates, a larger number of the community having been banned either voluntarily or otherwise, and a complete stagnation of RP. Now the first two examples I have given, there is not much YOU can do about it (except if you are Rolle/staff in which case I'll get to that later). What you can do however is attempt to fix the latter part of the three issues I have presented. Attempt to fix the stagnation of RP. Now some of the things I am about to suggest may sound easy in essence, but in practice are going to prove rather difficult. Others, however are going to irritate a lot of people and might even cause people to get at one another on finger pointing, but I'll be frank. Everyone is at fault. No finger pointing necessary. So here we go. The stagnation of roleplay is, by far, one of the largest issues that plague the community. It has been there from the start, even when 4 servers were present, however it wasn't as noticeable at the time due mostly in part to the fact that there was such a massive amount of people to interact with that even when stagnation was present it wasn't likely you had seen it all. However now that the numbers dwindle, dipping below 40 more often than not, and often enough dipping below 20 players active, it is quite obvious that it is present. The first thing that has led to stagnation is simple, everyone has continued to play the same character in either essence or in name since they started on the server. Now theoretically that is good as you can roleplay out how your character evolves over time, or you can remain in your niche even on a new character due to the fact that your new character still feels familiar. However when everyone is doing this it frankly leads to one of the most boring things you can fathom. Predictability. The more you play the same character, run with the same or similar groups, behave in the same way, the more that people will immediately know what to expect coming from your roleplay. The bandits will always be quick to anger, finding any slight against them as a means to initiate. The campfire roleplayers will always be friendly, welcoming you and aiding you however they can, the medical RPers will always do just that, provide medical RP. People talk about showing there characters evolution over time but, breaking it down, has anyone's characters' really changed? Or have you just become so caught up in what is routine that you are content. If you want to fix this, try something new. Bandits, try backing off for once, interacting with the people, sitting down at the campfires. Maybe even attempt to make a campfire RP character every now and then. Campfire RPers, try making a hostile character (shout out to @Mademoiselle here for doing just this), be aggressive, hold someone up. Everyone try playing something new, something different, and keep changing. Make it so that every time someone meets you again for the first time on a new character they don't actually know what they will get. Make them approach you apprehensively until they know just what role you are playing. Maybe one day you are running a pub, then you retire that character for a bit, and the next time people meet you, you are playing a Takistani Terrorist, then a week later you are a survivalist. I think you will find that it becomes not just more enjoyable for those that interact with you, but for yourself as well, as you get to explore things outside your comfort range. Now then, onto the next thing that leads to stagnation. Hiding or isolating yourselves over long distances. Remember how I mentioned before that when there were four full servers there was always someone to interact with? We don't have that luxury anymore. And yet we have become, over time, increasingly more separated as a community. I think it started around .55 or whatever the patch is that created the complete lack of supplies, which (in my opinion) was among the best patches, but more on that later. Now however it is hard to find people to actually interact with aside from the small groups of people that you already interact with on a daily basis. I myself tend to hang around the 'hotspots' as much as possible, but honestly that still usually only accounts for maybe a quarter of the server. The others or setting up in venues away from the hotspots which, while good roleplay of wanting to be off by yourself, is terrible for the community. Take a new player for example. They join and look for someone to interact with. They are excited to meet people and get into roleplay. So they head to the airfield and there's... nothing. They may find one random person who will then spot them, then immediately run off for fear of being robbed. Alright so then they head south to VMC and... same thing. It's just a walkind dead graveyard. Oh, but hey there's that hotspot they heard about. Let's head there. They meet people, talk to them for awhile, and then what? They either have to stay interacting with the same 5 people, or attempt to find others to no avail. Don't think this is a problem? When I was looking around for the UPS group back when I was running with the Black Fangs, I was astounded with where I found them. A group of eight or nine (comprising about a third of the server at the time) had isolated themselves to a single house near debug. Debug, let that sink in. A third of the server that people could interact with had isolated themselves so much that, frankly, no random would ever get to interact with them. Now I get it, you isolate yourselves out there for fear of bandits, or whatever, but in attempting to avoid one type of RP, you instead isolate everyone else off from yourself. Meaning that the interactions that those people are going to get are going to be increasingly boring or repetitive. They might run in to only the one bandit group on the server and assume that that is all there is to roleplay, a bunch of people going around and robbing or strong arming people. Now what do you think that person's perception of the server is going to be? Do you think that they will continue to play after X amount of time? No. They will leave, and the numbers will continue to dwindle. Now I know that this will lead people to go 'Aha, so the bandits are the problem', to which I will say... yes and no. The issue, when it comes to banditry, isn't that it exists or that there are players who enjoy robbing people and getting into firefights, it's that it is becoming predictable and rushed. And again, it's all YOUR fault. Yes, the issue of how bad hostile RP has gotten is even the fault of those that have nothing to do with bandit RP... because they will have nothing to do with bandit RP. Now I have played both sides, and I can tell you that the best bandit RP happens slowly. The escalation is slow, perhaps they are insulted by a couple things you said, but let it slide. Perhaps you are a foreigner so they are already aggravated by your presence. However usually it starts with just veiled threats. However that buildup has disappeared, and the reason it has it simple. The hostile RPers are bored. They run around the map, sometimes for hours looking for someone to present their hostile RP to, only to either have people immediately flee at there presence, suddenly find a need to log, or are simply hiding and yelling on the radio all the time. What this creates however is boredom. The longer they are running around without interaction, the more they want to get to what they consider the 'juicy' stuff, so that when they do finally find someone to interact with, the RP becomes hastened. They start to seem like all they want is the firefight, that they are looking for any reason to initiate, and it's simply because, after 2 hours of running around, that is exactly what they want. Look at the VDV, when we came down to Cherno we were able to interact with people quite often, and even though many of these players are the so called pvp scum of the server, things went surprisingly well. Do you know why? Because they were able to constantly provide their hostile RP without running about for hours on end looking for someone to interact with. The buildup to the fight with the CDF took time, the buildup to the fight with the UN also took time. And the payoff for the players was all the greater for it. They got to enjoy that buildup of growing hostilities, and then when it boiled over they got to enjoy the long overdue fight all the more. Interactions like that however cannot exist without someone to have a buildup with. Now onto the next part of stagnation, and I promise, we are almost there. This one is probably the most vitriolic for growing the RP base, and that is elitism. Many of you have been in the community for years, and have had a chance to develop your RP to where it is. Some of you are pariahs of RP, or come from other communities where you were able to grow it. You know who doesn't always have that luxury? New players. Whitenames as they are so often referred to. These are, often enough, players that are wanting to try something new. Perhaps they come off too super soldiery, perhaps there character choice is somewhat trolly, heck perhaps they are even someone more experienced trying something new. What are they met with? Shunning and reports. If people do not like the RP of a person, rather than working with that person to improve it, they are instead either ignored, or thrown into a report. Then you have the staff look at it and go 'yeah, no, not good enough. 3 day ban'. Now I want you to think on that for a moment. how many people do you think that waited 2 or 3 days to get into a community only to be banned a few days later for again a few days are going to return to your community at all. Sure you can argue that there are tools in place to help them, that there are precious guides or mentors and staff to talk them through things, but let's be honest with ourselves. The only way that people will improve is through first hand experience, and that will only happen if you let them. So don't be so quick to report them and get them banned just because there RP doesn't meet your expectations. Sure you can start the report as a means of contacting them, but try and talk it out with them, try and coach them on what they did and where they can improve. DO NOT BE AN ELITIST PRICK. So yes, stop saying that THEY are the problem, and instead focus on why YOU are. And this is especially true for staff (told you I'd get back to this later), if what I have heard is true. For those of you that haven't heard yet, there is a rumor going about that members of staff (I will not name names, but if it's true you know who you are) had fallen so far into the 'THEY' blame game at one point that they attempted to get @Rolle to ban an entire demographic of RP and all of those who prescribe to it. Thankfully, as the rumor goes, @Rolle and @JimRP denied there request. But that just goes to show that, if we continue to focus on how everyone else is the problem, that all we will do is reduce the community further. Or you know, you can also keep talking about how Beta will fix everything... just like you did with the lorewipe... and like you did with .61... and like you did with... well you get my point.

    Well the last 6 months have been a roller coaster ride. I've had ups and downs and highs and lows. I have gotten to work with and help a great deal of folks and take part in some pretty neat stuff. I don't want anybody to think that I was kicked or anything like that. Just can't continue to justify spending an inordinate amount of time here when I could be out doing things that I enjoy a lot more. Recently got a new truck and have made a lot of new friends at college and I'd rather spend time hiking, fishing, or off-roading. Too much negativity, toxicity, and petty drama here to stick around. There is probably more drama here then in my work and school combined. That being said I don't have any gripes with anybody or beef at all. I have gotten a lot of support despite the fact that I have been able to get around to not even half of what I planned and I made the mistake of promising things I couldn't deliver and not following through like I should. With class, work, and family it's just too much time to spend on the internet. Finals are also coming up and I need to finish this semester strong. I start aviation lessons in December so I can be a private pilot. @Jamie - Thank you for all our talks and time spent helping me out. You received me and got me into staff and for that I am grateful. You have always been somebody I felt I could go to to talk about whatever I needed help on. Keep it real brother. @Papa Tachanka - You are a fucking rock and this community is a lesser place without you. I miss our conversations we would have everyday about Lore and life in general. You are the hero this place needs but doesn't deserve. I plan on spending a lot more time chilling in your neck of the woods and playing games with you guys. @Rory - Thanks for the memes. Don't force yourself to do anything you don't enjoy. @Zero - You are a solid dude, keep your chin up and don't forget it's just a game. @Sleepyhead - Enjoyed the banter in TS and the kind words. @PCJames - Looking forward to playing other games and hanging out. Thanks for your time in CR bro. @Boston - Great guy, looking forward to hanging out IRL maybe. You have to buy dinner though. @Iso - You are a champ and one of the most authentic folks I have known on here. Don't stop. @Hebi Kotei - Keep triggering the cucks and move to Murica' while you are at it. @Joffrey - Keep up what you are doing. We need more folks like you. I haven't mentioned a thousand people, but you guys know who you are. Deuces. "Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present."

    Hello folks! in the past few months I have rolled around with a ton of bandits, and seen great rp and bad rp. I know a few of my bandit friends are upset that non-bandit rp'ers are upset at getting robbed, and my bandit friends respond "There needs to be robbery and bad guys or the server will be stale!!!!" And.. they are correct. However; This^^^^ situation is what is presented to the non-bandit rp'ers at LEAST 40% of the time. Literal minutes of silence, while being told to stand in a circle and wait. And the only reason or build-up to the way of "Why was I robbed" is met with the most, boring.. stale... and awful basic beech Arr' P. After moments of silence.. the hostages self RP as nothing is being said by the folks who are running the show.. only then are they interrupted by the hostage taker ..to tell them " you are all going to die.. unless this stranger commits suicide in front of you". What the actual fuck? Now.. I will admit this story line of suicide jargon could be a really cool scenario with the proper build-up and hostage interactions.. but to just straight up, out of the blue say " Kill urself or all these pplz diez" .. I dunno man... This is why folks hate getting robbed. It isn't fun for the hostages, its just a weird... gathering of silent people. I don't mean to particular pick on the chaps listed here in the video... because I have seen this type of "Hostile roleplay" alot this year, and it's pissing folks off. Bandits, step up your game, because this is boring... and it's stupid. Get at me on TS if you'd like a full debate on the subject.

    I had been in que since my disconnect log prior to the one above and it took quite a while. In the time I was in que I fed my dogs, let them out after they ate, refilled all of their water dishes, took a picture of the of them (Which I will include below), played fetch with them, returned to my computer played some dnd, tabbed into the game to see if I had gotten through the que yet, saw I was dead.

    Who gives a fuck how he was removed? He leaked the fucking server logs to his group so that they could have some cheap laughs at some players, who were harassed because of it afterwards. So we're supposed to be all nice and "thank him" because he broke THE MOST IMPORTANT staff rule there is, and these people who were harassed now do not trust the staff team or feel comfortable saying anything in text in game because it might get leaked? I'm disgusted by the people "thanking him" for his service after what he's done. Get your priorities straight. New staff agreement means that intentional leaking of logs will be met with a permaban. I'm done with fucking snakes and people who can't be trusted with a simple task of keeping internal info internal. Closing, deal with it.

    I think you're mistaken. I'm certain it is not my responsibility what users on my website send to each other outside of this website and I'm certainly not required by any means to take any action unless I receive a Swedish court order to provide information about someone actions who is a member on this website. What nudes members of this community send between each other is none of my business. I'm here to provide role play game servers and not to monitor if you masturbate on Skype to others. If a member is harassed through nudes that were stolen and are being spread within the community itself, like actually posted here, sure I can step in and rule 4, but in 5 years of this website I only had to do that once. I haven't received any reports and I'm not aware of any harassment involving these things at this time, I don't browse through people's PMs either. If you have solid proof of someone spreading other members nudes through the community website or TeamSpeak you should report it to me or one of the admins.

    Ground Zero - Place of Interest In the first month of the Outbreak survivors were occupied their daily struggle of finding food, safety, and some peace of mind in South Zagoria, generally forgetting or disregarding the place where the entire crisis had started. Some traveled into the base to search for supplies and anything left behind by the military forces that had manned the base before it was bombed. Many were smart and wore protective clothing and gas masks, others were either unaware or ignorant of the biological dangers of the site and went in unprotected. Some got lucky and some got sick, but most others just figured they had gotten bitten or exposed somehow. As the forces of the Russian Federation pulled out of the province and the CDF remnants were ordered out of the province, survivors left Chernogorsk and headed north to Severograd, a town which provided a fairly centralized location for commerce and hearing about the goings-on of the area. Apart from the occasional rumble from Tisy or the occasional Chernarussian Air Force jet high up in the sky, everything seemed normal. Aside from the amount of buildings that had been destroyed by Russian artillery the north Severograd countryside was almost picturesque. While downtown Severograd had mostly been spared, outlying areas were marked with destroyed houses and barns, a testament to the Russian attempt to distract the public from the epidemic that would soon grip the province and the world beyond. The civilians in the area had been evacuated or fled to Miroslavl, leaving behind ancestral homesteads and lands to rot. Cows and farm animals grazed at will in the countryside, and the frequent call of wolves in the forests to the north were a reminder of the dangers of travel as the summer months winded down and the temperature cooled down and the leaves began to change colour. The Kamensk Military Base was visited by forces of the UN in an attempt to discover more about the origins of the Outbreak. The former base of the 34th Engineer Company and the 176th "Gorka" Battalion was a shadow of its former self following the Russian bombing and the dispersal of the CDF from the base and the greater area. Most of the buildings present at the base had been in abysmal condition even before the Outbreak, most of which were leveled during the bombing. Tents set up by the military forces deployed to the site had mostly been looted or removed of valuables, and any documents or papers that could be used to deduce what had transpired there had conspicuously disappeared. The only real clue to what had happened being a pit down the hill to the south east of the base. A concrete slab punctuated by a small opening covered with a steel grate were apparent, but a look below the surface revealed a pile of bodies and a pipe that spanned the horrific pit, along with what appeared to be a shed jutting out of the side of the structure. The pipe had at one point been breached, with a jagged outline that showed where it had been. Since then it had been welded shut from the inside, and whoever had sealed the exposed pipe had conducted the job in a rushed manner among the pile of rapidly decaying carcasses that show evidence of being executed or subject to the blast of a grenade. The radiation level at the mysterious base is unusually high, not enough to be immediately dangerous, but enough to discourage anybody who knows about it to keep their path narrow and the duration of their visit brief. Beyond this, the level of biological contamination is far more of a threat to humans then the radiation. And as if that isn't enough, roaming packs of wolves make any trip to the site dangerous before one even reaches it. The feeling that you are being watched permeates the whole facility, making one uneasy as they tread through the area on their travels. In short, the location is a place full of questions and danger with few answers to offer up for the risk. //This thread meant to announce Ground Zero as a biologically contaminated site that would require sufficient protective gear and a gas mask to access safely. Those who don't would probably get sick dependant on where they went inside the base (pit, destroyed buildings, etc). It could also be considered bad rp to visit the site without the necessary protective gear and to play it off as if you were unaffected or safe from exposure. Everything that has been mentioned in this post can reasonably be seen by everybody IG, with the only small exception being the outline where the pipe has been welded shut from the inside. More will be done with Ground Zero in the future with the advent of hazmat suits in .63 (keep an eye on Tisy too) and as we start doing events in the area, many of which will be unannounced and dynamic which are directly related to the site.The radiation is just high enough to be suspicious but not really enough to do damage, the biological contamination is what will kill you.

    There's a real issue that seems to be plaguing our server lately. It's always been a part of the community, but with our consistently active playerbase shrinking by ~50%-75% on March 1st, this issue seems to have been magnified. Of course, everybody is going to enjoy different types of roleplay, and playstyles, but the mindset that they're somehow better than another person just because of the RP they enjoy/playstyle they play is toxic as fuck and is killing our server. It drives a huge wedge between members of the community, and it needs to stop. I'm not sure how to stop it, and I'm not suggesting any solutions, because this issue is much more complex than it may seem. However, I know for a fact that it will take everybody to make things better. There has always been a split between campfire RPers and RPVPers, and there has always been a sense of elitism on both sides. However, as I stated above, it seems to have been magnified since March 1st. PVPers are seen as scum of the community just because they rob people and get into firefights. Now, there are obviously some bad apples out there that ruin things for everybody, but just because there are those few assholes who have to abuse things, that doesn't mean PVPers should be stereotyped as terrible RPers who are only on the server to find PVP. This attitude towards PVPers can be seen both in game and on the forums. There have been many many times where either my friends and I, or another person I know, has been berated or insulted on an OOC level just because the person getting robbed is upset at the loss of their things. I've personally seen comments like the following from this report: 08:50:39 : Direct: Axel Griffin: //you have to emote you aids rping fucks jesus meta gaming, and now this jfc 08:50:44 : Direct: Dusty Mayfire: //stop ooc 08:50:51 : Direct: Axel Griffin: //stop breaking rules 08:51:15 : Direct: Axel Griffin: //dont break rules and i wont have to morons Or also things that are said directly to me/my friends, whether it be on the forums or in teamspeak. These don't necessarily have anything to do with PVP vs Campfire RP, but it shows that people lose control and allow themselves to act like an asshole over things that don't matter: Regarding things I've heard said about campfire RPers, I don't really have many examples to go on as I have not been a campfire RPer for at least 2 years now. However, what I have heard from other people, or even have heard myself said, are that campfire RPers are pussies that hide from everybody else or that they're piles of salt or that so-and-so is a whiteknight, or comments along those lines. Personally, I don't have a problem with campfire RP; my only issues lies with people who purposely hide away from other people and only internal RP, or people who avoid RP hotspots because it's 'dirty' or whatever. Now, both sides are guilty of elitism and OOC hate for the other side, and both are at fault for it. However, this is not something that can be easily solved. It will take everybody changing their mindset and being more open minded to make things better in our community. After all, we're all here to have fun and to create interesting stories, but this can be hindered when people allow themselves to get heated or upset over the tiniest things. Like I said, there's nothing that can really be done, besides everybody in the community opening their mind more and just being more chill in general. There is also the issue of people avoiding RP hotspots or hubs just because they think they're better than the RP that goes on there, or that avoid it because they don't want to ever experience bad RP. There is also an issue of people hiding away and only internal RPing with each other, and who completely avoid anybody that is not in their group. My issue lies with these types of people. I am not against internal RP, I am against people who purposely try to avoid anybody else for whatever reason. I've heard comments like "That type of RP belongs in Cherno!" and things along those lines. People calling the triangle, and more recently Cherno, cancer because the majority of reports are centered in that area. Like yeah, bad RP would happen there sometimes, but that happens when new people roleplay, or when somebody makes a mistake. Just because there might be a chance of bad RP happening, or because a majority of reports center around an area, doesn't mean people should just avoid it. That type of thinking is killing the server. Without an RP hub, or a place for people to go to RP with each other, it's just a bunch of people running around, searching town after town to find people to RP with. That's not fun. Just did it for an hour and a half. Ran from Elektro to Novaya Petrovka, and even over towards Severograd. Found literally nobody the entire time. Like I said, that's not fun. We're all here to RP with each other. Yes, bad RP can occur, but people shouldn't hide themselves away from everyone else just because they don't want to potentially experience bad RP, or because they're afraid of being robbed. When people hide themselves away, or avoid an area like it's the plague just because it's a popular area, it can and does kill a server. People come here to RP with other people. When they can't find anybody to RP with, it's not fun, and they're likely to not want to play on the server. That is how I am personally feeling lately. I don't have motivation to get in game, because it is difficult to find other people to RP with. I know for a fact that there are others out there who feel the same as I do. The idea that hiding away from people is better than RPing with others seems to be a relatively new idea. As far as I can remember, this was not an issue back in 2015. Green Mountain was always popular, as well as Zelenogorsk, Vybor/VMC, the airfield, Stary, Novy. Then there were times that Dolina was popular, and then the prison island, and then eventually the RP hub moved to Kabanino. It seems like the mindset of hiding from everybody stemmed from something during the time Kabanino became popular. I don't know why some people feel inclined to do so, but it's not a good mindset and will kill the community and server, unless our server populations rise again or unless that type of thinking is done away with. I'm not saying that people who do that are bad people or bad at RPing, but it is not a good mindset to have if we want the server to remain populated, and if we want our community to continue being about having fun and creating cool stories with each other. I'm also not saying that everybody should be at the RP hub 24 hours, 7 days a week. I just think that people need to get out of their comfort zones more often. Maybe that would keep the servers alive. Anyways, these are all my opinions. I am not trying to throw shade and flame people or a certain playstyle, and I am sorry if it came across that way. I am also not looking to get into arguments, and I would like it if other people could avoid flaming or flamebaiting each other, but that might be too much to wish for. What I would like to do, is create a discussion where we can all share our opinions and potentially open the eyes of people that were unaware of this issue.

    This is the first time the staff team has ever heard of this excuse. We have decided to test your theory ourselves. @Chewy and I went ingame and found a paintable weapon, Chewy (Character name: Caitlyn Myers) painted it and then handed me the gun. I proceeded to shoot her with it. According to your theory, the hitlog shouldn't show that I (Character name: Lexa Skyette) shot her. Below you can find the hitlog regarding our experiment: Below is the video of the experiment: @nicvin49, We have 2 questions for you: Would you like to edit your point of view to what actually happened? Do you have video evidence?

    So, I just got whitelisted here, and I'm not going to give my two cents on the safe zone because I haven't experienced anything on DayZRP yet. What this whole thread does do, is make me think twice about wanting to RP here. Clearly, most of you have "spirited" opinions on THIS subject, but I hope when I start reading the other topics, they aren't this negative. Please be respectful of both "sides" opinions and try to see things from other peoples points of view. Thank you.

    Server and location: S1, Kabanino. Approximate time and date of the incident (SERVER TIME): 7/31/17 18:00ish. Your in game name: Nikolai Trenkov. Names of allies involved: @Watchman & @Sleepyhead Name of suspect/s: Irish people. Additional evidence? (video/screenshot): I'll attempt to salvage some footage and upload it. Detailed description of the events: Ran into Kabanino to meet with my allies. Walking down the road, I am met with some Irish guy on the road. He greeted with me with "Who the fuck are you?" I replied to him in a similar manner. All of a sudden without anything coming from his mouth, all his friends spun around at the same time and bunched up on me at once. After some hostile roleplay, they took myself and my allies hostage. The forced me into the piano house, and I'm met with "If you chat shit, I'm gonna kill you." I get that quite a few times during the encounter. They move me into the house and ask me a few questions. They ask me my name, where I'm from and if I'm with the VDV for being Russian. It was quite simple roleplay in all honesty. Several of them were talking over each other and focused on other stuff, it was a little bit manic. But one of the allies of the suspect walked up to with me and told me to put on a white dress and dance for them. I point blank refused and told them no, I'm not a puppet to make a fool out of. They then shot me dead for non-compliance. I have no idea personally why a group of Irish people would be taking people hostage and telling them to wear dresses and dance for them 20 days into the infection.

    Link to the source of punishment (report/post): Why the verdict is not fair: Regarding the wording of the initial verdict, I found it unclear and had I had to speak to multiple admins about it. I felt the verdict should have been individual based, not everyone thrown under the same rug to say. It would have been way easier for everyone receiving the punishment to have their own personal verdict on what they have done wrong. There is a mention of history being brought in. If my record was thoroughly looked through it will show that majority of them warning were cautions and bans that were appealed my most recent punishment before final was in the process of appealing so for some information on that I will post a link. Now I'm adding this in purely for context to regarding my roleplay as a whole to show that justifications regarding that report that led to me getting a guilty verdict for bad RP and to show my true intentions about it. link Additional statements/comments explaining your point of view: Now onto my wrongdoings here in the community. In the past, I have made mistakes that range from Miss IDs to posting some dudes profile in chat. Now I'm gonna put it out there right I've made some stupid mistakes that I have now learned from. but regarding on how I got put on finale now that was me acting immature towards my friend getting permabanned his name was TheProxJack so I changed my name to the TheProxLouie Now I'll put up my hands and say yeah I was taking the piss but then again ya know it was one of my buds that I won't be able to play with here again so I was in a mood at the time. I also tried to get him to delay a report so his points would expire resulting in him not getting banned. The only reason I did that was to try and keep my friend here because the end of the day I just wanted to play here with my friends and have fun. But then again It was his own fault that he was going to get banned over his points building up. looking back on that yeah that was scummy as fuck the reports we have been involved in was on something the other player dissatisfaction. Like I get it ya know we take the time out of our day to go play the game have a bit of fun and we don't want some random dude walking over breaking a shit ton of rules ruining their experience. Now onto the threats of us gonna chicken tendie like I get it I'm in no position here to argue about it but this has to been taking into consideration that we are in a private Teamspeak channel me and my friends say stupid shit towards each other and in general what we say there doesn't mean we are actually going to do it none of the lads wanted to tendie that was just having a laugh it may not sound like that but that is our sense of humor and how we act we were all just comfortable with each other and would say anything. Now there was this kid in our channel who was streaming now he never notified us that he was streaming so that was kinda awkward as fuck when we found out but yeah thats on us. What would you like to achieve with this appeal: To be taken off final. What could you have done better?: Act mature towards serious situations and generally think before doing something. I'm going to add a bit down here regarding my time here on final. So when the final hit most of my friends were displeased with was going on so they jumped ship so only a few of us was left playing I went off did my own thing for a bit brought back my character Louie and then eventually joined a group called The Black Fangs now when I got into that group I was having a solid experience met some cool roleplayers and we went around did our thing I don't think I was involved in a report once with these boys. I have had great encounters ever since so yeah Ingame I have been a good boy ya know so now regarding my activity around Teamspeak and the website I ain't the most frequent person to post on the general discussion threads or anything like that I prefer to speak to someone on Teamspeak If there is something important to be said. A few times I would go into Teamspeak hear that some lads are having a few issues and help them out. I have also spoken to the admins about issues people are having and try help out with it. A couple of times I would see a report that somebody who is new to the community wouldn't understand something about the rules and I would either shoot them a PM or post a status update explaining things to them. Now I'm not saying I did these things just to get off final sure in fact I've always approached people and tried to help them prior but then again the bad shit I did outweighs the good shit ya know. But yeah end of the day we all come here to play a game and have a laugh so yeah I have changed my mindset on how I do things here now and I would personally like to apologize to anybody affected by the mistakes I made. If you need an explanation on anything else feel free to question me on it.

    We don't need a picture of your neighbor. I honestly don't give a fuck about your neighbor or if you think they are retarded. To be clear here, you are not calling your neighbor sub human or anything else of that nature, cause like I said, I don't give a fuck about your neighbor unless they are a member of this community. What you said, verbatim was What that indicates to someone reading it is that your thoughts about what is subhuman is not your neighbor but actually transgendered people. What I also find interesting is that wasn't your original post, as it originally ended at What you did there was turn this into something that alienated no one and showed your displeasure as a parent of what your kids might have to see to alienating members of this community that are transgender. Had you left it the way you wrote it the first time, thoughts of points would have been much more hesitant and who knows if it would have even occurred. Outcome: Appeal Denied; These points are not here to stifle whatever notion of free speech or to tell you what you should do with your kids, but keep the hateful shit to yourself.

    Its a farming life for me. Establish a place to call home and to conduct business in. ( Day 210 outbreak) Establish a large radio network advertising our farming company. (Day 215 outbreak) Find military organizations and ask for their protection. (Day 220 outbreak) Establish the best farming community in South Zagoria. Protect our fellow farmers any means necessary. Produce enough food to feed the majority of South Zagoria We wanted to try out a new way of roleplay here in the community currently hostile RP is shunned either way. So we are going to take the route of campfire roleplaying but we will defend ourselves based on circumstances. The plan here is to set up a hub for people to come roleplay with us and share supplies. Food will be supplied free of charge. Rules don't be a dickhead and keep your weapons holstered. Click the radio to contact us ICly. Recruitment will be handled in-game but If you really want to join send @Vytis a message. Shoutout to Kyle Jones for the graphics.

    "Killed one" - Alexander Dukov 2017 The story of PAU started with the civilian uprising and riots that happened prior to the Donetsk War in 2014. The organization started off as a civilian rebel group who were noticing the sudden pro-Russian split in the Ukrainian government. Led by a retired Ukrainian army Captain, Adrian Turov, and other retired military personnel the group shifted over from protesting in relative peace as a civilian group to forming a paramilitary force, mostly made up of either ex-Ukrainian military members or active soldiers in the army who were displeased with the way the Government was handling the unlawful Russian stealth invasion of their country. Anticipating the start of a civil war in early 2014 the Rebels found it imperative that all their members have proper firearms training and tactical knowledge so that they could partake in the defense of their homeland. Using their contacts in the 79th Special Brigade, Adrian and the leaders of PAU got in contact with the people from the “Zbroyar” factory who were able to supply a sufficient number of small arms that helped in the formation of the paramilitary wing of PAU. With the rise of pro-Russian and anti-government groups and the annexation of Crimea in the March of 2014 it was obvious that the Ukrainian government and military were helpless. The rebels initially aided the government forces in the fighting that took place in Donbass but after suffering losses and not being able to regain the lost ground it was apparent that their governments way of fighting this war was not the winning one. Shortly after the Rebels took on a more radical approach of dealing with the pro-Russian military forces who were now unlawfully occupying Ukrainian territory. Due to the fact that the anti-government groups were receiving high end military equipment, training and monetary support from Russia the rebels could not fight them openly or in great numbers so they resorted to covert hit and run tactics which would weaken the russian supply lines. The ambush squads consisted of up to 20 experienced men who could be in and out of situations much quicker than a larger force could, enabling them to take the enemy by surprise and reduce the number of casualties suffered. Not only were the russian supplies being stopped but they provided the much needed firepower that the Rebels didn’t have access to which in turn strengthened their ranks. With their growing influence and the obvious impact that their actions were having on the invading forces the group started gaining more experienced ex-military members who disagreed with the way their government was running the defense of Donbass. Most of the members came from the 79th Air Assault Brigade led by Lieutenant Ilya Sokolov who served in the Ukrainian army with the PAU’s upper echelon before their departure. With their numbers now reinvigorated PAU set off on a number of operations whose goal was to secure several small towns and villages around the towns of Donetsk and Horlivka. Due to the proximity of pro-Russian forces in the Donetsk Oblast the fighting in the surrounding towns proved difficult. After suffering losses in an operation that involved the fortified town of Kostyantynivka the Rebels were running low on much needed equipment and men. It was decided in June 2016 that a storage facility in the outskirts of Kramatorsk will be assaulted in order to regain the loss of valuable equipment, this was to be one of the biggest assaults that the Rebels would undertake. The operation proved to be disastrous for the PAU as unbeknownst to them the Russians had infiltrated their ranks as early as August 2014 who had fed the pro-Russians with information on the assault plans on the Kramatorsk facility. After suffering great losses it was decided that they cannot continue their fight in Ukraine as they had no idea how many of their members were snaking out information about their operations to their opposition. With the remaining forces that were left the fall back plan was initiated to vacate the country in order to reasses their numbers and to resupply the forces. Adrian Turov and the leaders of PAU got in contact with their old friends from NAPA who supported their cause since their inception. Ludek Menciek, the ex- leader of NAPA, secured transportation and safe passage for the remaining PAU forces from Ukraine through Romania and Bulgaria and into Turkey. Whilst in transit Ludek informed Adrian of the infection that was going on as well as the invasion into South Zagoria by the Russian Armed Forces.Once in Turkey the Rebels made their way to a location just South West of the town of Hopa where they boarded the fishing boats that Ludek had prepared for them which would then transport them into South Zagoria. Upon arrival into Chernarus Adrian and the men vowed to never be deceived by infiltrators and foreign spies that wished to sabotage their cause. Their recruitment tactics changed completely and became much more rigorous, mostly gathering like minded individuals who supported what they were doing, unfortunately due to their low numbers they had to look for outside sources of men who could hold their ground. This is what sparked the forming of PAU’s foreign legion led by Chabu Doewski. Recruit like minded able bodied individuals Eliminate any Russians supporting the unlawful invasion of Ukraine Setup an FOB from which the PAU can operate out of Recruit outsiders to provide us with intel Protect people who are attempting to find a cure for the infection Adrian Turov- @Randle Chabu Doewski- @Dew Ilya Sokolov- @Tom TBD- @Odap the Corruptor Dusty Alexievich- @Dusty TBD - @Kevin Petro Moroz- @Zorbz Pytor Dukov- @Jewell Leo Lynch- @ExoticRainbow Vitaly Chayka- @Blake Shane Jewell - @Shane Sebastian Asnee- @Pep TBD- @Duorhs The Conqueror Makysm Rodchenko- @Skinner Bodi Skilsky- @Lucius Daffyd Buziak - @Seiceps the Deceiver Kateryna Yanukovych - @Sleepyhead Kirill Ivanenko - @Jamie Valentyn Novak - @Viking Oscar Gurka- @osku197 Timothy Hook - @Mexi Ukranians Probably you.

    Ah, yes. The almighty Shiro. I was expecting this, but was hoping you would be mature about the situation. From my understanding the group rights were obtained by my friend Matt in 2015 from another individual from when he owned it. Myself as well as others pretty much led the group ourselves and changed the lore because we didn't agree with you power-gaming yourself into not only the Aegis lore (making it all centered around you), but also the entire community lore. According to the story I was told by Matt, he got drunk one night and you convinced him to hand the rights over. He did, didn't remember it the next morning but by then it was too late. You kicked all of us out of the group then told me as well as others that we couldn't play as the characters WE developed, that WE created stories with, and the characters that OTHERS enjoyed role-playing with. I am not certain but I think you even THREATENED to report us over it. After that you just archived the group. You complain, complain, complain all the time about how people don't like you or seem to not want to play with you and this is exactly why. You treat people like trash my dood. We developed the group in 2015 and had fun times with it, but you were no where to be seen. Out of no where you come out, essentially steal the group we developed during that time, and said "Fuck you all", then you left the community and didn't return for a year! I even messaged @Rolle about the issue and I believe he was willing to step in, but I dropped it because to be frank, I stopped caring and moved on. I then messaged him again recently and he said it was okay for me to make the group as I was a part of it in 2015, the last time it was active. By the way Shiro, the group itself I enjoyed playing, but stop trying to make it out as some ultra-original idea. It's pretty much an Umbrella Corporation reskin, all you did was replace the names Umbrealla Corp with Aegis Corp, originally you didn't even bother changing the character names, you just kept the old RE ones. I actually am planning on going back and revamping the lore entirely in an attempt to make it a bit more original. If you have anything further to say, please private message me.

    It's peaceful according to you. If it was peaceful I wouldn't be receiving multiple PM every week with complaints about groups or PvPers along with recorded videos of their bullshit. Players hubs like Pub wouldn't have to relocate due to constant attacks and griefing. Reports are still being posted at the same rate as before considering the number of players we have daily. How exactly am I not understanding what is happening on the server, I have proof in form of countless videos from reports section to back it up while you just have your personal opinion. And I am not here to restrict and constrain hostile RP. As I explained in this post just 2 days ago, I don't have problem with hostile RP, I have a problem with PvPers. These are completely different things in my book and it is clear that some people in this community do not see the difference, they think they are doing hostile RP, but what they're really doing is just run around and initiate on people or get in firefights. Damn right it's my community and the rules I set are always for the betterment of role play, never for PvP. So it's natural that PvPers will be pissed off and pushed away, in fact I count on it, because this community is not for PvPers. It's the entire point of introducing these rules - it's not to restrict the legitimate role players, it's to restrict and get rid of PvPers. It should be a pretty obvious thing I think considering the name of this community. I haven't really hidden the fact that I was more than satisfied to see large part of people who left during chicken tendie be gone, they caused a fuckton of issues in this community. Sure, there were some good people too whom I was sad to see go, but majority were just PvPers. So please, stop with the doomsday predictions, it's getting old. These "DayZRP is dying if you don't change now" has been going on since 2012 and during chicken tendie as well about how the community will fall without their awesome bandit PvPRP and as we know absolutely nothing has happened. In fact, I'd say the standard of RP has only increased. This community can handle many, many PvPer cleansings to come. What you don't see is the true role players who share my values are more than delighted to see the PvPers gone, but won't express it publicly as I do as they don't hold the position of power like me and they would be bullied and ridiculed for their opinion by the "bois". Again, it is not big as I think it is according to you. Everything else like PMs I receive, conversations in staff, reports posted, videos uploaded show a completely different story, so I cannot take your word on this. And again, I want to remind you that hostile RP does not equal PvPing. Genuine hostile RPers should have absolutely no issues with the changes being made as they rarely if ever get in reports unless the victim is salty about something. What are you talking about? I think I treat all members who follow our rules equally. What does expectation for people to behave well in this community has to do with whom me and my admin team chooses as new staff members? Choosing people who enter our team has nothing to do with equality. We choose people who we think are reliable and a good fit for the team. If your friends list consists of 50% of permabanned players then obviously you are not a reliable choice as we cannot trust you with internal staff information, your connections and the risk of leaks is just too great, regardless of how good roleplayers you might be. I don't see how that is being a hypocrite. This point kind of sounds similar to what happened during the PR Manager recruitment controversy (people questioned why someone was promoted to that rank). If I wanted to recruit 50 new completely unknown people into staff to handle DayZRP things I could. Who gets added to the staff is none of the concern of regular members - that is handled by admin team and me and stays there. We don't have to explain or justify our choices. You are free to disagree with the choices we make or criticize that staff members work, but our choice who to recruit is ours only. Why would we want someone like that in our community? He clearly didn't give a crap about anything that we stand for and has already broken one of our major rules, now he was doing it purposefully again. Giving 5-10 warning points and then what, wait for him to go on KoS spree and destroy someones RP? This is perfect example why we have rule 4 - if me or the admins see that someone is unfit or unwilling to role play in this community - they will be removed at moments notice without questions asked. It is not heavy handed, it is damage control before it reaches genuine role players in game whom we are here to protect. This community is for RP, not PvP. Someone who enjoys PvP more than RP has no place here, there are hundreds of public servers for that. We are not and have never have been a community for everyone and I have never claimed it to be as such. We specifically ONLY want people who want to focus on RP and not PvP. Once again (third time now?), note the difference between hostile RP and PvPing. If your priorities lay in PvPing then this is not a community for you. That's why saying things like Boston did on our forums is in direct violation of the core values or principles of this community, and since Boston didn't include any indications that his post is a joke, I as an administrator must take action. I will not risk someone disturbing ongoing RP with their PvP because "it was just a joke on the forums". It's called preventive action through rule 4 and it's similar how if someone posts a status update "going on kos spree brb", it will get you banned from the servers, joke or not. It may be obvious to you that this was not worth of any sort of punishment, but then again you are not administrator with the power of rule 4 whose duty is to remove unsuitable players at moments notice. You may think joking about breaking the rules in this community is funny shit, I do not think so because it affects MY players and MY community negatively and I as an owner have a strong commitment and desire to keep this community for role play and role players only. All warnings and bans issued are legitimate. They have a backing in our community rules or community principles. All bans and warnings are done on case to case basis depending on the situation. They are not meant to be justified by referencing to another similar case, they are not comparable. Besides that, Dusty please. "Some of the behaviors were not appropriate"? Cmon, let's name things as they are. The chicken tendie was a bunch of immature kids, PvPers and banter bois throwing a fit with hitler pics because when one of them broke the rules for the Nth time they expected getting smacked on the wrist with 3 points as usual and what they got instead was the hammer. They feel they were wronged? Well of course, they kept pushing the boundaries and breaking the rules, so they got thrown out, of course they feel wronged. I absolutely expect another banwave to happen because I know that we still have quite a few PvPers left in the community who do not care about RP at all and just want to initiate on role playing nerds, am I right? Whether they leave on their own through another staff suicide or I remove them remains to be seen. As you probably have guessed from reading this far, we will have to agree to disagree. I have to act the way I do because the staff team usually wants to avoid confrontation and controversy that results in drama or they do not feel like they have the power or authority behind them to enforce the rules to the level that they perhaps would want to. I on the other hand after 5 years of running this community am used to people hating me for and creating drama surrounding my decisions, directness and swift actions. My actions are hurting the people focused on PvP, just like intended, not the role playing players or the community that I created this place for. Regular role players should only feel improvements when they are exposed to less bullshit robberies, unjustified kills, receive hostile RP that is fair-play and are stopped being taken advantage of. Also a small correction - staff members do not run the community FOR ME, they do it for the community. I do not sign a contract with them, nor do I pay them and we only take volunteers. Those who show dedication, share the same opinion about our core values and have the right mindset are given a chance to have a large role in how the community functions by becoming a GM or Admin. Thanks for the feedback though, it confirms my understanding that there are still many people in this role playing community (just look at these BeanZ! ) who want this to be more of a no-KoS server with limited to no rules about RP, rather than a protected sanctuary of genuine role play. And I'm sorry if I made any typos, written fast before bed. Also I still love you Dusty, you're my favorite hostile RPer and I very much enjoy different viewpoints from you when discussing reports, no hard feelings.

    Wait, you demanded the armed forces of united nations to remove one of the member countries from the UN and you used that as a reason to initiate?

    This is just... oh boy is this wrong. *cracks his furious typing fingers* let us begin. (Now before I begin, there are some people I feel are an exception to what I say. This does not apply to everybody in this friendship group, only a few that seem to lead the problem.) What we "see in game" is quite often you run around getting into fights very often, you're extremely aggressive with people for the sake of being aggressive. Why? Because you're good at PvP. But where you want to argue "it is what we see in game," what others see is a man getting shot repeatedly and never dying. Your argument follows that of a realistic one based off what happens in game. On one hand I can say fair enough, but what you then disregard is any other form of realistic hostility. Your group of friends fights, relentlessly. Your go to response is initiation. It's not hostile RP, it's initiation. People don't want to fight you because they will lose most of the time (and losing 90% of the time kills passion to get in game). People don't want to comply to you because you will execute them whenever you get the chance. Exhibit A: Whilst I take into account this is my groups report, the unbiased verdict presented by people that are not in my group shows what I am talking about. I will quote 2 parts of the verdict: "That being said we do not blame Para for refusing as it was painfully obvious what was going to happen" & "However, like in all situations killing someone should be a last-ditch effort even if you have rights.". As is obvious from the verdict, your group of friends executed 2 hostages simply because 'you could.' It was our first official hostility, and it was painfully obvious what would happen yet your party still chooses to kill as often as they can. Again I ask why? the image you constantly portray, through your actions and through your words on the forums, is that you only want to win. This in itself is detrimental to RP. Now, to move onto why people criticise your viewpoint specifically on the military group presence: Firstly: Here we have a prime example of an issue. You regard @Mexi's comments as 'nit picking' despite him actually proposing a very valid concern. Another example where you belittle another's argument instead of actually addressing the concern they put forwards. You don't, and evidently won't, roleplay out a fear of the military presence looming all around South Zagoria. The Russian military, as it currently stands in the lore, is incredibly high. The CDF, the UN, everything still retains a massive amount of threat looming nearby the region we play in. Hell, I refer you back to the days of the VDV when a nuclear blast went off. This shows the capability of the military is still at large, and we have not heard anything to say otherwise. Realistically, if you want to run around executing and killing as many people as you possibly can, how long is it going to be before the military stops regarding the civilian lives and pulls a 'Noah's ark', a purge of the area. You don't take into account the incredible power that could easily come back and destroy the entire area, one that is realistically more likely to come back if the zone is being overrun by a rag-tag bunch of bandits running around causing chaos. Missiles, tanks, more than your small band of now 'anarchists' could handle. And need I go into the detail about how little sense this makes for the character Luke Krey. In the Black Fangs you were involved with running a settlement, known as 'Tortuga' which took place in Stary. Then you moved on to try and help the PCC establish a Government, which was a military organisation. Then you established the 'farming organisation' which had the purpose of allegedly re-establishing 'Tortuga', which i don't need to remind is a settlement with rules. Now all of a sudden you're an anarchist? How does this make sense at all? A lovely screenshot of your backstory as to why this makes no sense: Now, this just proves everything you have done prior to this does not support Anarchy. And what's even more alarming is the fact he 'shot down a jet with an RPG'. Even if this were feasibly possible, you'd be fucked. You'd have the military hunting you down, this would be an official attack on a military organisation of the world, it would result in MORE, military intervention. So when you purport that the concerns raised are 'nit-picking' you are so, sooo wrong. Lastly, To quote a goal "i) Establish a place for people to feel equal as well as a place for our people to call home." from this group. Your goal pushes for equality among all, but you pushed for an agenda in the black fangs where "We are the bad guys, we can do what we like and push you all around because we're better." That was fair enough, but now all of a sudden it's equality? @Mr.Panda you pose the exact same issue here. Your character's actions pose contrary to anarchy and make no sense. So to summarise, your mentality is the problem and it needs to change. This dismissive and 'must win' attitude is one of the biggest problems to RP currently, and there are MANY that share my view. I have tried to talk things out with you numerous times, but you don't change and at this point I highly doubt you will. You don't care at all about realism, and you don't care about other people's views on realism as your emphasis, on everything, is to win. You've made this obvious to everybody over your last year of being here in DayZRP and to be quite frank, half of the community is sick of it. Many people have grown tired of it, and it is one of the reasons half of the players-base is done. People will not raise these concerns with you because A) you dismiss it as 'hate' and disregard it, and B) those that speak to you directly (at your request) give up because you don't change. What's even more ridiculous is that you always ask other people to change, to embrace your style and to open themselves up. This mindset you have portrayed is not one that benefits or promotes RP, it promotes your agenda, to win. For example you state "who cares dude If they cant physically show us this so-called magic military then it's irrelevant. I go by what I see in game." You, in game, always win through forcing your agenda on to people. You're good at PvP, so are your friends, there is no doubt about that. But what you want is to win, and you'll do that by crushing / steamrolling any group that opposes you. Your force groups into situations where they have no option but to fight back or give up. --------------- Now @JimRP what I have said above does not really apply to you in the slightest. I've got no issue with you, or any other of your members. Anarchy is a very well constructed group idea, and in the current times it probably would fit quite well. The graphics are incredible, and work very well with the group idea. The lore is a very interesting read, and I have no doubt about you being able to pull this idea off. I wish you the best of luck with the revival of Anarchy!

    So this is discussion about point 7 in this thread: The goal here is to make it fair and realistic in hostile situation when someone is initiated upon or role played with. Currently: 1. When initiated upon you quickly tell your team mates in TeamSpeak that you are attacked and you say all details like where, how many the enemy are, their location, clothing etc. That is not realistic as in such a hostile situation the attacker would be able to hear you say all these things into the radio. The attacker has no way of preventing you from giving out this information as when they take your radio it is already too late. 2. During hostile situations the attackers are often seen walking around and doing things without ever talking to one another. They seemingly talk with one another and decide on things telepathically. After the rule is implemented: 1. When initiated upon you will have to say everything that you say to your team in game. That way the initiator has a realistic way of telling you for example "don't touch that radio" which is a reasonable demand considering the hostile situation. 2. When role playing with other players, OOC comms may not take priority over IC comms. Now, to formulate the rule, I was thinking about something like this: 11. Metagaming 11.5 In presence of other players you must use in game communications if your message contains IC information. This is especially important during hostile situations where you may not use external communication like TeamSpeak to share in character information like your location or details about the attackers. Feel free to discuss and suggest different definitions of the rule, I know this one isn't very good but I hope it shows you what the goal with it is.

    Hey folks, I'm here to talk about a subject that is touchy, and a fair amount of people completely disagree with. I ask you to hear me out. The Problem: Bandits running around robbing folks over and over and over again. Stale RP, and stale hostage RP. The Problem, explained: For a long time there has been no real massive story arc for groups. I think it's fair to say it has been since 2015 since a real server-wide story arc has taken place amoungst multiple groups.. and I'm talking like a real story arc here.. A beginning, middle, and end. Example; The Family started up, and made a bad name for itself by carving into folks and torturing people. The Valkeryies and The Irish banded together to bring the family down, and after a few key battles, The Family tore apart. This is obviously an oversimplification, but it outlines why folks enjoyed 2015 so much. Groups had a big storyling that had a beginning, middle, and end right? Today there are no fun story arcs, and I feel it stems from lack of consequences from both campfire RP-ers, and PVP heavy groups. If the campfire RP-ers dont want to get robbed all the time, and they get tired of getting robbed.. as anyone would.. they would fight back. The reason they are campfire RP-ers is because they do not enjoy PVP all the time.. only some of the time. Right? But in the current system if the Campfire RP-ers fight back ..it's just giving the PVPers what they want; PVP. There are no consequences of a firefight. The Campifre get shot, the PVPrs get shot.. they both respawn.. but now the PVP'r wants revenge his blood has been kicked up LETS GO BOYS ITS ON!!! Battle, after battle ensues.. the Campfire folks only wanted 1 or two battles but now it's everyday... for a week or two until the parties get bored of each other, or the campfire folks go afk.. salty. There is no way to progress story arcs outside of campfire RP in our current system. I mean.. there IS... but there is no way to enforce people to RP story arcs. Here is my suggestion, a 3 prong solution to help the server into a more RP focused mind-set. Step 1: Permadeath. I think it would be fair to say if your character dies 3 times via firefight or execution.. that your character is over with. Keep Execution rights nearly the same as they are and you have a pretty fair and realistic consequence for being a shitlord. This way, PVP'rs can still be the PVP group they want.. but now they have to pick and choose engagements.. cuz if you die ... you ded... right? Step 2: Implement @Rolle group balance idea to an extent. The pvp'ers just lost one or two guys 3 times in a firefight.. and they want to keep playing in the group right? JUST RE-MAKE A COOKIE CUTTER CLONE OF THE GUY WHO JUST DIED!! Obviously we don't want this, and it would be relatively easy to enforce. Anyone who's in game a lot will know the names of prominent Campfire, and or PVP players.. especially the enemies of said folks.. they will police themselves. "Yo... our group just killed David Mack like 4 times this week.. and now @Rebel Pado just made a guy whos name is Darvid Merck... and he acts the exact same way... WTf?! Report that shit!!" It will be painfully obvious when these cookie cutter characters come into play.. also.. if you are not allowed to cookie cutter, and you must make a brand new character.. the grouo will be forced to change. If you kill the leader, and his top 3 guys.. and those folks have to remake NEW AND ORIGINAL characters.. there is no way for them to follow the same story arc... the LoreMaster team should keep on top of the RP leadership.. to make sure groups are adhereing to a new goal-set if/when the leadership gets.. you know.. smoked. This wil VASTLY improve group story arc. Also make sure folks cant just make cookie cutter groups over and over again... Step 3; Radio chatter. Okay we've handled those DIRTY PVPERS.. what about the silly white knight campfire RP-r who will go into radio chatter and thump his chest.. only to get into game and sit up north, or be polite whilst he is right next to the guys he flamed two days prior.? How do we deal with this cancer? Make anything overtly hostile said IC on radio chatter count as a hostile action towards execution. That way Campfire RP-ers will be kept in check.. if the PVP bandits find that dude after he's said like on 5 different occasions that " WHEN I SEE YOU NEXT I WILL KILL YOU SCUM!!!" ... if the pvp-r can give good execution RP in response to the dick waving over the air... that will cut back greatly on the needless radio chatter cancer. Also, if the Campfire RP-r greatly values his or hers character... he/she will comply to robberies. And you bet for DAMN SURE they will act realistically to fear RP if their characters life is on the line. Some of these steps outlined will be difficult, and time consuming to police.. like group leadership dying and seeing the groups direction change in response. But it will largely be self policing. You can be damn sure the enemies of a group WILL be paying attention to that shit.. and the salt lords WILL call attention to ANY slight found in the enemies group, or RP. The LM's can go through the salt when it arrives.. and see what the truth of it is. Thoughts? I feel this would bring SIGNIFICANT group story arcs back.. and can solve the robberies issue.. and the shitty campfire hostage RP/radio chatter dickery.

    I've browsed through some group threads and most of the goals struck to me as very generic, unmeasurable, unobtainable guidelines for the group, rather than actual specific objectives that the group wants to accomplish. It feels like the groups just fill the goals with a few meanings that hold no real weight on what the group actually does in game and having a requirement for a group to have goals wasn't meant to work like that. I'm here to change that, so that we can have official groups actually work towards specific things in game and give them a direction that all group members can work towards. So I have revised the group requirements and added the following part to the Group requirements thread: Group goals must follow the SMART goals and objectives principle. We use our own, slightly modified version: Specific – goals must target a specific area for improvement or accomplishment. Measurable – goals must be able to be quantified or at least suggest some kind of an indicator of progress on the goal. Attainable – the group must be able to achieve the goals and mark them as complete within a realistic time frame. Relevant – goals must be relevant to the nature of the group and fit well with their back story. Time-bound – specify when the goals can be achieved, must be within realistic time frame. It's a good idea to use days since the infection outbreak as an in game time measure. Good example: Our military group wants to create an outpost for us to conduct our meetings and allow for trade with external parties. Updates will be posted in this thread and/or in radio chatter. ETA day 180. Bad example: Our military group will fight enemies, make everyone fear us and we will claim the Chernarus as our own. All groups will get a few days grace time to make appropriate changes to their group goals, I'm sure that you can come up with creative things to accomplish in game and I can't wait to see them. Protip is to write a goal and then go through the SMART checklist and check if all points are covered. Don't worry about being archived if you can't come up with good goals, in a few days I'll go through all the official group threads and leave feedback on your goals so that you know if they're good or need to be adjusted. Additionally I've installed some new group features: Group owners can now set a "home page" for the group, which is pretty much intended to contain what group threads first post is - demo for Nexum. Unsure if this will mean that we no longer need group threads, since it's pretty dumb to have to keep the info updated in two places. Stay tuned. Group owners can now give another member ownership of a group. Note that when you give up ownership, you lose all rights to the group even if you were the original creator. You can now only be in one group at a time Group icons now show next to posts on the forums again

    A few days in July 2012 I was playing the newly released DayZ mod that was taking the PC gaming community by storm. Everyone was recommending it, I already had ArmA2 box edition since before, so it didn't cost me anything to try it. I was playing on one of the official servers where I met a few guys. I no longer remember their names except for Borg (now banned for cheats ) who hanged around for quite a while after creation of DayZRP. Back then not that many people killed on sight so the four of us decided to team up, exchange Steam info and play together and explore what the game had to offer. We were all new to the game and the world full of zombies and the open world survival aspect were a intriguing combination. Even though the early versions of DayZ mod were buggy, we still had a great amount of fun. A few days later I read somewhere that you could create your own server. I decided to go for it, so that me and my newly made friends would have a common server to play on and meet more people. I still remember setting up the server and you had to register on the official DayZ website and get approved to connect it to the official HIVE. My server got ID "SE-8". The server was running on my old PC that served mostly as a file server, a dual-core CPU with 4GB RAM. My and my new friends loved it and really enjoyed it for a while, but soon the gear whoring took the best of us and we starting using the server to get advantage over other players, by camping popular spots, hoarding vehicles and helicopters or duping gear. I remember all 4 of us lying on the top of Chernogorsk factory, all geared up with M4 camo rifles and KSVK, camping innocent survivors. I got bored of that kind of gameplay quite quickly. When we had stacks upon stacks of duped weapons, items and best vehicles there was nothing more for us to do. There was no customization or anything much you could do with an official server connected to HIVE. That's when private server files were released, by R4Z0R if I'm not mistaken - the guy who currently takes care of DayZ mod updates. The server was created. I wanted it to be server with my own rules, where you couldn't shoot people on sight or dupe gear. I wanted it to replicate the experience that I had when I met those 3 other guys a few days in July 2012. I didn't have a good name, SE-8 didn't exactly roll of the tongue, but I wanted the name to indicate that the server was for interactions. I don't remember who came up with it, but DayZRP was decided upon, even though up until then I had no experience with role playing in computer games. I registered a domain and created a simple forum, to make it easier for players who were playing on the server to communicate. Within days, the server and the website had first members. We didn't have a whitelist or password and the rules were basically reduced to "do not kill on sight or combat log", but the concept of restricting gameplay to no-KoS seemed to be gaining more and more support as the public servers were heading in the direction of a PvP game. The rest you can really read yourselves, by going to the last page of the General forums and reading some of the threads from 2012 or checking the Archives. Here we are after countless role playing events, wipes, KoS hours, settlements and camps, groups and factions, journals and stories, and over a million posts on the forums and so, so many predictions that "DayZRP is dying". During these years I have met so many great people, my live has been turned upside down with legal stuff, I have become a father and have learned so much thanks to this community. I want to thank all players who have played on DayZRP during these 5 years, all the staff members who have selflessly spent hundreds of hours working on this project, all the people who have suggested ideas and fought hard to make this community a better place for all of us. You guys are awesome, you are the ones who make this happen. DayZRP is 5 years old today. /Rolle 50% off Premium ranks with code "happy5", only today!

    Hey guys, was thinking about this the other day and thought to get your ideas on this. Nowadays, when I walk around in-game, I don't see any real tension or tenderness toward other players. That may be a reflection of my own RP, or a reflection of the community as a whole. But it seems that most dynamic conversations go something like this: Person/Group 1: Hey, so uh, who are you (guys)? Person/Group 2: Oh hey, I'm (we're) xxxxxx. Who are you? PG1: I'm (we're) yyyyy. Where you headed? PG2: Oh you know, just over that hill there. Do you need anything? PG1: No, no I'm (we're) good. You? PG2: Nope, thanks. Uhhhh well okay, see you I guess. PG1: Yep stay safe. Of course, interactions vary slightly, depending on whether one group is a bandit or if they know each other. But most random encounters are pretty... dry. I think it may have to do with a number of factors, and wanted to hear your thoughts: Most people have their cliques at this point. Very few players in the community roll around by themselves unless they're brand new and are simply trying to find their groups or RP only with their groups. This is indicative of a community problem, and isn't something I think we can really address other than to say, "hey, maybe we should be more patient and open to RP from others." That seems fair to say, no? Don't want this community to be super cliquey. (The real issue, I think) Everyone has been RP'ing as if the apocalypse has been going on for about three years now. Most survivors at this point are indifferent to the problems of others, and are usually independent enough that that don't need help. The second one, I wish to address before the new lore kicks off. Let's shed ourselves of this dull blanket of RP! The infection will have just begun, the outbreak still scary and disorienting for everyone. Tensions should be high, and a willingness to work with others should be as well. I want people to interact with more human and realistic reactions than if a random person were to walk up to you on the street in your day to day life. Each survivor is precious and you have to work together. For my group, for instance, I hope our interactions to go something as follows: PG1: Hey! Hey you guys with the guns! Over here! ODA: *points guns* Oh shit, who are you? Are you bitten? PG1: What?! No, no, I'm (we're) nobody I'm (we're) not bit! ODA: *lowers guns* Phew okay, what's your name(s)? Why aren't you at the evac points? PG1: The name's xxxxxx. I (we) couldn't make it out. You guys look like military, do you know where I (we) need to go? ODA: We weren't part of that effort, we don't know. Have you seen any CDF or UN forces? We need to link up with them. PG1: No, it's been chaos. Can you help me (us)? Please, these infected are fucking crazy and I (we) only have this axe. ODA: Jesus, where did you find that in this city?! Look, we can take you as far as the next town headed East, but no further. PG1: Oh I was going... I guess west? Over to the big airfield. I heard people were still getting out there. ODA: Well in that case, here take this food and this bandage. It's all we can spare and should last you the trip. Best of luck, and stay out of big towns! PG1: Oh thank you, I haven't been able to find food for days since the stores got raided. Hey, I have this walkie talkie, is there a radio frequency I can reach you at for help? ODA: Yes, we communicate publicly on yyyy. Only use that frequency if you have an emergency, or if you find the CDF or UN. Be safe. Few things to note in that interaction. People with guns and in military gear at this stage of the lore should be seen as helpful authority figures. That image shouldn't change until certain factions go rogue or civilians get their hands on military-grade equipment. If you were in a natural disaster and saw someone from your National Guard (or equivalent), you wouldn't be scared, you'd be relieved. Everyone is on edge, we point our guns (but don't initiate of course) because we're trying to protect ourselves from the infection. We don't know if we're immune, if it's airborne, or if people have been bitten. Most people should be like that, initially extremely suspicious of people but quickly thereafter very willing to talk/help. We talk about events happening around us. Since the outbreak is so new, things like evacuations and the infection are hot topics of point. We also ask about factions relevant to both our group's internal goals, as well as the well-being of civilian survivors. People are ready and willing to help one another, to a point. Everyone has their own goals, whether that be to link up with allies, find their loved ones, or get the fuck out of dodge. To that end, people understand that they should stick together, until it becomes a problem for them. Most people who aren't trained to understand landnav (orienteering) won't have a firm grasp on compass directions. They know that East is the sunrise and West the sunset, but aside from that they're probably completely useless off paved roads with signs. For now, they'll talk in terms of landmarks or cities, not in terms of bearings or terrain. Of course, every interaction is unique, but this is a good example of how RP should be intense and human. I hope to hear your thoughts about this, and what considerations we should take into account for RP'ing when the lore has just recently begun!

    As of today, I've been removed from staff by the big man himself. It ultimately came down to disagreements we had about the community and this was the only option. That being said, my experience in staff has not been tarnished by this. I tried to make a difference and while I may not have been a legendary admin like Terra or Hebee, I did what I could. The ride was pretty lit and I had some good times in staff. I'll tag a few people that I enjoyed my experiences with. If I don't mention you don't take it personal, I love you all. @Jamie - When I first got that PM from you telling me to go to helpdesk, I was spooked. And when @Lyca and @Ender told me they had evidence of me duping in the Akrasia camp I was freaking the fuck out. Then I realized it was a joke and I was a new Support on the team. You were a great admin and I'm glad to have worked with you. @Aiko - You helped me out a lot in staff and for that I am forever grateful. Too bad you are a weeb, kinda ruins it <3 @Shane - My fucking boy. If it wasn't for staff I probably wouldn't have gotten to know you and realize how much of a lad you are. Chillest dude in the team by far. @Brady - Another lit dude I wouldn't have met had it not been for staff. You have the potential to be a great GM, show them what you've got. @Eagle - When I joined staff, I was excited to work with you the most. You've been my boy for over a year and its a shame we don't play games with each other much anymore. Don't let bullshit get to you my nibba, you're a true lad. @Ark - You suck worse than me at PvP but I guess you're an OK moderator :^) @Loscham - You should be a loremaster tbh. But you're a good mod too. @Boston - I enjoyed being in staff with you. She did you dirty though and that fucking sucks. @Dusty - People would always shit on you and call you a bad staff member. You don't become a GM on three occasions if you're a shit staff member. RIP my boy Not sure what I'm going to do now to be honest. Staff was the only thing really keeping me around. Don't fucking take my posting rights or I swear I'll leave bad feedback.

    I don't know how many of you have watched WOBO in the past or know who Aggathor is but the guy used to make really informative DayZ content about various weapons, lootspawn changes, guides, etc. I'd assume as DayZ players some of you might've seen his content before. Well the guy released a video explaining why he hasn't been on. He tells you everything in the video but the rundown is that his Mom's going for an operation to remove a cluster of cancerous nerve cells from her neck and (I think) she'll be full-body paralysed because of it. Guy's quitting his life to be a full-time caretaker and he's doing one last stream to raise some extra money to help out his Mom before he leaves. I'll leave the link here in case any of you wanted to go show your support, since Youtube doesn't show videos in your subscription box if you haven't watched that Youtuber for a long time so some of you might be subscribed and have not even received the notification.

    Link to the source of punishment (report/post): Why the verdict is not fair: These were the reasons given for the points. I did not bully anyone, I did not troll harass anyone, in fact the only person that I even insulted is my retarded neighbor. As a parent there are things that you want your kids to see and certain things you don't. A dude with a dick wearing dresses and stuffing hormones down his face is not something that most parents would want their kids to see. This is why, as per the previous post I stated I would do this if it had no repercussions. And I went on to explain that. I don't want people to think that I just want to kill people for no reason that would be edgy as fuck. Additional statements/comments explaining your point of view: Here just in case any of you are wondering here is a picture of my neighbor, try explaining that to a three year old when she asks why that man is wearing a dress and high heels when he goes out. What would you like to achieve with this appeal: Points removed What could you have done better?: Choose a better place to live.
