    Hello ladies and gentlemen of DayZRP. It's been a while, some years infact, since I played with you all. But I do stalk the forums from time to time. Well I happen to be in the Czech Republic and had the chance to visit Chernarus on Saturday. Me and a friend of mine who is also an Arma nerd, started at Cherno and followed the coast line to Berezino, cut west through Gorka, stopped at Altar Hill yes the site of the once great Ravens Nest! Carried on to Novy and Starry Sobor, then climbed to the top of castle Zub. Ending back in Cherno for a coffee and back to Prague. Highly recommended to pay this beautiful place a visit if you ever get the chance! Pictures incoming from my phone... Cherno factory from the road. Pik Kozlova, overlooking Cherno. Sniper Hill, overlooking Elektro. Overlooking Berezino from the barns. Berezino barns. Church in Gorka Altar Hill. The Ravens Nest. Road to Ravens Nest. Altar again. Approaching Starry Barns from Novy Sobor. A few in and around Starry Barns. More to follow with next upload...

    Hello! New rules as discussed in this thread are now in effect. You can find the new rules page here. In order to continue playing, you must accept the new rules. Head over to the rules page, read the new rules and click the button at the bottom to restore your whitelist. Also, old whitelist system has been retired and replaced with one that is much more user friendly and streamlined. It's still the same basic info that is required from the users, like passphrase, example character story, answer multiple rule questions, etc. This system is still being actively developed, but since we did a major overhaul of the rules I didn't want to spend time updating the old system when it was about to be replaced soon anyway. The major differences with the new system are: No cooldown on wrong rule answers Only 1 application per member Other staff ranks can handle whitelists (for example GMs) Comment field that can be used for communication with staff, for example if staff believes something needs to be fixed or the person wants to let staff know about something or update their application. If you find any issues with the whitelist, please contact me as it is very much in beta stage I hope to see you on the server soon!

    I wish I didn't have to make this thread, but it's come to that point where there's no real good reason to stay here anymore. I had some extremely great and memorable experiences back in mid to late 2017, and early 2018. But sadly, those days are long gone, and I honestly do not see this community as something I want to be a part of anymore. It's honestly mostly toxic, and the RP just isn't there to compensate for it now. I met a lot of great people who I still talk to today, and just gave me great RP in general. I don't want to make this too sappy so I'll just state most of if not all the names of the people who made this community great for me here: @Wolfstorm, @N-Tox, @Puck, @SnipZ, @Franklin Ranner, @Alexis, @Anouk, @Anoymouse, @KSGamingTTM, @Ansolari, @Carg0cult, @Blake Quinn, @Brett, @Buddy, @Canon360, @Chief, @Dakotaen, @DallasRP, @Dank Mems, @Dirty Dan, @Dvlinhb, @Eddie, @EndeavourRP, @EveryoneHatesRonin, @Fil Vandren, @GenjiRP, @Psycho, @jangoskull, @Jman14102, @Jono the giant, @LCKY, @Lyca, @Madkilla67, @MotocrossGuy13, @RedSky, @SameOldRalle, @SgtSmithy, @SlimmDusty, @SoalXtractor, @SofiaL, @Wulf_jon, @Titan_, @trent_rouls, @turtlemilk, @Coreena, @UncleB, @Liberty Berntson, @Lori, @Tony, @Para, @Clumsy Sorry if I missed anyone. Things are looking really nice in my life right now outside of this community, a lot better than they have in the past year. I have a much more positive outlook on things, and I'm just enjoying everything that's going on around me. Sorry to say, but I'm not going to let this community's negativity intrude on what I got going on. I'll still be on games from time to time, so feel free to hop on in Discord to drop me a message. Good bye, DayZRP.

    The community is not in a great position currently, there is no doubt about that. These popularity dips have happened multiple times in our history, for example around the time the original DayZRP mod died, right before Standalone alpha was released in 2014 or during 0.59 patch when we were waiting for 0.60 release in mid 2016. But we have pulled through those dips, and we will pull through this one as well. We're trying to fix, change and add new things that would promote and encourage player activity once again, but it's not easy due to a chain reaction of not many players joining the servers. Empty servers cause players to not want to join, which in turn causes empty servers. To combat this mentality I will be removing some online player counters from the website. While those help to get people online when the servers are close to full, they have the opposite effect and discourage people from getting online or even registering and applying for whitelist if they constantly see "0 players" on the front page. It's a never ending circle that has to be broken by something exciting that will get many players in game at the same time. This has usually been attributed to game patches with new features in the past, however in current situation where Standalone player numbers globally drop 20-30% per month, the deadlines we have been promised for new patch have yet again been lapsed and there are currently only 5 servers in the world that reach full capacity, we can no longer count on Bohemia to get things done, it's time to diversify our portfolio. And while most of people say they don't play because they are "waiting until 0.63 hits" and that's most likely the only thing that will get them back in game, I'm not gonna sit here and twiddle my thumbs waiting for Bohemia to break a few more deadlines, I'm going at least try to do something about it on my own outside Standalone. We have already tried to jump on SCUM hype with our own server, but after playing a few hours we decided that it would be very challenging to incorporate it into our DayZ lore with the content the game has. And if we made it into a side-project, it probably wouldn't have enough support to survive for very long. Therefore the SCUM project has been moved to its own separate website at SCUMRP.com with it's own staff and community. With SCUM out of the picture, I have come up with an idea to expand DayZRP through other games that are very similar to our main server. Not by creating new side projects, but by extending the core offering of our community with permanent servers of different DayZ flavors. Introducing new concept of DayZRP - the DayZ World. DayZ World will consist of not just a Standalone server, but also other DayZ variants and games that can fit well within our rules and lore and can be placed in the same world and timeline. This means that you will be able to use the same characters, lore and rules on all connected servers, the only difference being the location (map) and game mechanics that the server you play on offers. The thought that lead me to this idea were that if we're the most known DayZ role playing community out there, we might as well host all of different DayZ games and not just focus on one of them. As of now the development of the new servers is in very early stages, the hosted game servers are vanilla and running different variants of Chernarus map. With ability to extensively mod both ArmA2 and ArmA3 and access to admin tools we will no doubt add our own customization and run custom events on these servers in the future and perhaps run other custom maps with locations that add more to the lore like Utes for small events or Taviana or Namalsk for regular gameplay. Since there is not much to be done for Standalone in its current state, I will be focusing my time on these two new servers instead. Since the new games are very similar, it was very easy to integrate them into our systems. Whitelist, characters and time played already work and will be properly counted and checked on all servers. More details regarding the technical aspects and customization of these servers will come later, as the work progresses. Meanwhile, we are looking for developer staff positions for both ArmA2 and ArmA3. If you are familiar with SQF scripting, you are welcome to create a staff application. Thank you for your continued support of DayZRP! See you in Chernarus!

    Honestly....this goes against a few of my principals but fuck it I say: A far more liberal approach to the lore and concepts. If people want to RP out a character and can make sense in the world. Allow the concept. A jump into the far future. I say 50-100 years into the future. People born and breed in the outbreak. Leaving few to no real "former survivors". Let's push this away from the mil-sim and more towards real post-apoc raider/fallout/mad Max movements. Less secret governments from fallen countries to new and evolved countries and groups being formed. Push the focus away from the past and more towards the unknown. The past does not matter as nobody can remember it anymore. Push towards that style of game and "lore" will be so much easier to maintain....will explain a lack of everything and how things are dying down. Bring me a true apoc game.

    I think people are far too easily upset by things and we should remove status updates all together. This is a gaming forum not somewhere to document your life.

    Thank you everyone for your votes, it is nice that so many still care about the community. As many of you noticed, I've sent out a community wide email to all members asking for feedback on the new rules. We'll wait a little longer for some more discussion and votes and then change the rules some time tomorrow, on Friday. During the weekend I will try to come up with some random event to do and will be streaming as well, if my waifu and kids allow

    Didnt think id be writing this, but goodbye staff! Currently with my schedule at college, and what im going to be doing the next few months I will have absolutely no time to do staff work. I dont know how long ive been in staff for, probably about a year and a half or some shit like that but it brings a tear to my eye thinking ill be done with it. I can honestly say staff changed my life, before I joined I was a socially awkward fuck that didnt wanna leave DayZ, and joining staff made me a more social person. So social, im more involved in social activity's then I ever have before. Its been a lit time, but I just cant do it anymore. I am pleased with the work ive done recently, and although I cant spew it to the community people like @Jamie will know. I would tag a fuck ton of people, but if I fucked with you you know who you are. If I didnt fuck with you, you also know who you are. Ive worked with some really amazing people, and ill never forget the past year and a half. Ill still be lurking, and ill most likely be applying again soonish. - Brady signing off

    Quinn listened in and giggled to herself, she pressed down on the PTT. "I'm not paying anyone a single thing to stay in Severograd. I have been here, in this city for over a year now doing plenty to earn my stay, just because yet again, another, "bad-ass" group has decided to come along, out of the blue demanding this and that, trying to rub their territory on the city doesn't mean anything to anyone. People have been here in Severograd looking after the city, all on their own, for a long time, earning their right to stay, which shows that alone, means a lot." "Everyone is equal, no one is "paying rent" to anyone." After Quinn had rolled her eyes, she spoke again with a soft, genuine smile. "I do want to say thank you to one of your members for the AKM and everything else, it was very sweet, nice guy. Most had gotten donated to those who don't have much." Quinn released the PTT.

    Like I stated, the few for the many should always be chosen, especially in dire times like these. id rather have 154 people play than 67 man, but hey that's just my opinion. The last time we listened, the server died. Take 10 minutes and read through what everyone is saying and you'd understand. We get it man, you didn't like Anarchy, that not an unpopular opinion. But its downright insulting to insinuate that we didn't progress the lore, we were the driving force for it at the time. As I have always stated, if someone feels a rule is broken, they should report it and if the people are abusing these "grey" areas, then punish them. Simple as. I am sorry you feel this way about us "hostile" role-players man, but at the end of the day we are here for RP as well, why cant we all just get along. To answer the last part, just look at server stats after the recent rule changes. Stop victimizing yourself man, were all trying to have a discussion here, lets stop pointing fingers and subtweeting accusations and just talk them out. It would be better if we could just settle all the shit so we can at least have a god damn server to play on, rather then fighting with each other like fucking children.

    A fundamental contradiction in your argument. 154 people want the rules changed, at least half refuse to even play with the current ones. A very loud minority arguing for carebearRP should not dictate the RP of not just a majority, but an overwhelming majority of the player-base. Last time things when the vocal minority route, the server died and even those who suggested it, stopped playing. We need to do what is best for the community as a whole, which is currently acquiring a stable population, if that means hurting the feelings of the few, for the sake of the many then so be it. Again, I really do thank you Rolle for making these decisions, finally giving some of us hope that with game changes and servers changes, we'll be able to enjoy the community that we miss.
