    So recently a friend of mine has been put on final for showing factual information to do with sexual orientation preference, it wasn't targeting anyone but non the less it's been deemed not allowed on the forums, due to it being labelled as 'offensive'. Once again, someone I know posted a Finnish song that is linked to the Nazi party, they were given 10 points.. Because again, it's not allowed. But someone is allowed to have a profile theme of someone who leads the Swedish Democrats, whom have 'formerly expressed strong support for the ideology of Nazism'. The party has also been linked to rather large amount of racism, but I'll let you indulge yourselves into that research because otherwise I might be here for a while. My question is, when it comes to the first two listed and the profile that someone has.. Where is the 'consistency' that the Staff team are always preaching about in appeals and in the forums in general?

    Awww I’m humbled you’d mention me western. I was hanging up the pencil for awhile. I got all moody n shit but friends of mine encouraged me to persue some more. I just started this up. They are no where near professional and so I don’t ask for payment. I’m happy for the practice. Still... I have works I’m behind on haha @WesternRP well... most of my sketches are portraits from reference pictures - meaning I draw what I see. I can change/add things -it’ll take me longer though. I am planning to get more into drawing scenes now for the journal I’ve been writing so if that is an idea of yours I can do that too. Here’s a picture of the characters so far - I’ll draw a scene tonight and post it later.

    Back on topic. I've gotta hand it to you man, you've presented this argument very well. Without trying to sound like a broken record, I'm going to make a few points on hostile roleplay and its role in character development. We all have the same goal as roleplayers - we want to transport ourselves a world unlike or own, becoming apart of a story. A variable. Unique and interesting characters are an extremely important part of making that happen. This goal, however, is often adulterated by two primary parties. Although both parties most likely feel like if anything they're adding to the community, atmosphere and roleplay storyline in general when you study their actions and the consequences of their actions of as a whole, you'll realise why. Idealized characters. These people are your 'Mary Sue' or 'Gary Stew' character. Usually, this kind of character comes from humble beginnings, are a hero type, manage to survive every hostile engagement with a scar or some kind of mark and usually have a small mental defect which is never really explored or extremely exaggerated. Sometimes, this is just the player playing themselves, which isn't always a bad thing - but when it's just 'you in a zombie apocalypse', things get a little detrimental. They don't want to lose this character - "oh, they're so developed!" "Realistically, they would've survived that shot!" "Oh it was because of *accusation or ad hominem*". Anything hostile happens to them, bam - straight to the gulag with you! They're too scared to lose their character. Stereotypical bad-guys. Villians are so important to create an interesting and unique story and without them, the story (in the server's case, timeline) falls flat. It's important to note that being stereotypical is not the same as being consistent. Your characters should behave in ways that are consistent with their backstory and how they've been developed over time, but it's just not the same thing as being stereotypical. Everyone's seen the psychopath that 'likes to collect testicles' as @Tony has put it. Everyone's seen the Adidas tracksuit wearing, PVPer Russian character before. You don't want people going - "oh so his character is just like such-and-such's?" If you're going for something that might be seen as stereotypical, switch it up! If you're a psychopath, have a softer side for example. Hell, even make it so you're seeking help. Anything to change it up. When people follow these toxic stereotypes, whether it be for PVP, torture roleplay or just plain ignorance, it makes hostile roleplay as a whole look unappealing and bland. It makes hostile roleplay look like its detrimental to the server's health. Let me finish with a statement: Attention and room needs to be given to the villain characters - for, without them, the story would not exist.

    @Tony - My group might have been shot down but that doesn't mean I am intent on leaving you or anyone else without conflict. And yes I wish that people could look past my group and just see our amazing RP or the purpose that we were trying to create for everyone but the sad truth is that many already have pre-formed bias towards any sort of hostile RP. It's a shame since I have always been under the impression that good hostile RP is the best kind of RP. Here's hoping the demise of The Killers can be but a stepping stone and not a gravestone for the future development of this communities rules and expectations moving forward. P.S: Your voice is soothing to listen to, talk about some ASMR shit

    Alright, allow me to break my silence just a moment here. I don't agree with many of these changes. Hostile RP feels like it's getting more of a hammer in the knees than a noose about the neck. You MAY NOT share kill rights with other players unless both of you are in the same official, approved group. If you are not in an official group - you are now on your own. Dynamic groups are a PIVOTAL part of DayZRP. We don't need this rule and in turn makes me not want to come back and play. You MAY NOT attack other players without a proper justification that comes from in game role play or radio chat forum. You may not use an excuse that your group or character is super evil bandit and their story justifies being hostile. It must be role played out and the role play lead to a hostile situation, not just written down somewhere on a nice character page or group thread! I can understand proper justification. But I'm gunna be honest it limits roleplay and I feel there will be a distinct lack of fear. You MAY NOT destroy camps, vehicles, tents etc of other players for OOC reasons Camps, Vehicles, Tents. All fair game. If I want it or I see it as a potential threat, I'll destroy it. It's unenforceable. Thus I find it useless. Wanna keep your things? Hide it better. You MAY NOT sabotage, interrupt or attack any official events or its participants (official events are the ones that have a banner on the top of the website), unless the event organizer has said it's ok. Okay this is one I can understand with, but I think it undermines any realism that could or would happen. You MUST be a nice community member, play fair when in game, focus on role play and be respectful towards other players on the forums and TS. You SHOULD help to make DayZRP a better and more interesting place to role play in, by contributing through creating interesting groups that forward the lore, organizing events or creating a player hotspot in game. -Redacting myself now to avoid being pointed up-

    Recently I got stuck under an apartment, and this is how I got out <3 I decided to put up the little guide because it happened to a friend of mine, and everyone was telling him he had to kill himself to get out. Find the thinnest wall, the one that's all that's stopping you from going out! You may have to crouch or crawl to get to it. Turn around and back up against the wall as much as possible. You might have to relog to get into a standing position to do this. Press F3. You may have to try this once or twice against different walls. For rocks, you will have to try quite a bit. POP! You're out! Your character model would have backed up out of the wall to FREEEEEEEEDOM! BONUS GUIDE: (Curtesy of @ryanbroman) This works almost all the time, but if it doesn't you can try walking towards that wall while crouched and press Z when you're almost there. You'll travel forward slightly before and after the prone animation, and you should make it through.

    I have added ads to the DayZRP website to help pay for the hosting expenses and the game servers. While Premium income is used to pay back tax debt that I/DayZRP currently have, I hope to use the ad income to pay for all hosting related expenses. If all DayZRP members allowed ads on the website, the income from ads would easily pay for all server costs. I have chosen 3 places where the ads will show, to not unnecessarily clutter the website and not harm the page readability. Those ads have different sizes which randomly rotate: Below the top menu, on all pages related to forums. At the bottom of the page, above forum statistics and online list In the side bar on the home page, below forum statistics I humbly ask you to help to support DayZRP, either by allowing ads in your browser or buying a Premium package. Users with Premium level of Contributor or higher can disable all ads on the website if they wish to do so, however I encourage everyone, regardless of Premium rank to enable them as they really help a lot and it doesn't cost you anything. Thank you for your support!

Comment who you want to see being interviewed next week! Apologies for the lack of these, I am a busy person and the only person running these. These will continue as normal(every Wednesday). Thanks to WesternRP for participating! Tell us about yourself! How did you find out about DayZRP, and what made you want to join? If you could thank one person for helping you get started here who would it be? What could we do, as the staff team, to make this a better place? What is your most memorable experience(IC/OOC) here? Do you regret doing anything in your time here? If you had to live in a jail cell with four people from this community who would it be?

Instead, he took out an MP3 player he had just acquired from his most recent victim. He put on some orchestra music to his liking, and began speaking into the radio, holding down the PTT.* *Asher would leave the PTT on until the music ended, then release it. He would then begin to eat a woman's thigh, medium rare.*

    I understood Rolle's intentions, which is why I simplified the original draft with @Para, yet that wasn't satisfactory. Trying to meld execution rights with revenge scarring rights, into one rule, won't work in my opinion. Having the two distinctly separate is the only way to avoid confusion, at least its the only way I can see to avoiding confusion. The language is simple, the structure is concise and every person I have asked thus far has had no issue understanding the simplified, or indeed the original, version.

    Was thinking itd be neat if there was a twitch player on the front page for the Dayzrp twitch where admin could host various streamers currently streaming dayzrp and could also have the ask the admins playing directly from the site. It would both promote streamers that stream the game, as well as give a window to the community or potential applicants into seeing what RP is currently like on the server.

    I like the idea but definitely not on the homepage. I would rather have a "DayZRP Streams" option under the "Community" menu and that page could have links to dayzrp twitch streams, or maybe even have them embedded if that's possible. However, like Rolle said often these streams can be quite boring to run and meet up with people or searching for folks to RP with, but sometimes it can be pretty exciting in brief bursts.

    I just did a relatively short google search and have found multiple sources linking them to Nazi ideology within the party and even one of the original auditors of the party was a SS officer, so I don't really believe that is an entirely true / factual statement that you have made here, I am all about calling out fake news when I see it but this seems to be real news. Not to mention the numbers of leaders of the party that have had to resign due to racism and what not.

    Nice simple group thread guys! I really enjoyed the read. It is very to the point. As far as DayZRP groups go this is pretty unique. I'd like a bit more info on all the character and their motivations, and maybe one more good SMART goal with a measurable, set time for completion. Other than that you guys look great! Hope to run into you.

    Interesting group. Hope you will be hitting me up for lots of tasty bits about ground zero and investigation you can do where the UN left off. In short, South Zagoria is not Zangoria, the thread needs some colour coordination, headers, and smaller text. Run it through a grammar generator of some sort too. I really like the goals and the mysterious air of the group and its purpose and background. Looking forward to seeing where it goes. Let me know if you need any help, just chat around for graphics help. Good luck folks!

    One thing I will say about the hostile RP I've had since returning to this community, it's been awesome. The group I had the hostile interaction with was the Killers. They properly lured me out to somewhere I couldnt get help and did some pretty fantastic RP with me. They gave my character proper development in an interesting and new avenue I wouldnt have had before. When we had this looming threat of hostility falling upon us, the RP became so much more enriching. There was a goal aside from "loot and survive". Roleplay is story telling with dozens of people. You know what a good story has? Conflict. Hostile RP provides this conflict. No good story has ever just been "And then Jim went out and found a can of beans and went home." Even stories without central plots that are just about the characters wandering about have some conflict or danger. Even Alice in Wonderland had the Red Queen for fucks sake. I'm of the mind set let people RP whatever the fuck they want to RP as long as they follow the lore setting and rules. Who gives a shit if they dont have the most original group idea? As long as it's done proper, it can be good fun. We all know what this is about. I'm not stupid, let's be real, the damage has been done. We should just focus on making sure this shit doesn't happen again.

    Recently enough actually, I took the wrong bus when I was heading out to uni, the bus I usually take is the 304 but, instead, like a moron I took the 304A. My bus terminates at the uni I go to and repeats the route, whilst the 304A terminates about an hour in the other direction. I swiftly realised this but decided to wait for the repeat route and got on the correct bus when I got back to the city. I arrived about 40 minutes late for my lecture, thundering in to the lecture hall at 100mph wasn't the best idea so, whilst attracting literally everybody's attention, I decided it'd be a good idea to fall down the large amount of steps in the lecture hall. All in all I think I fell about 4 or 5 rows before I stopped, papers and folder spewed all across the place. Picked myself up along with my things and then sat down and waited for the lecture to resume, not saying a fucking word and trying to stop my face from turning red. Moral of the story, take the right bus kids.
