    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

    So this is a prayer for the community. I have been here for like 1 and a half year, and I have seen and heard a lot of drama, and of course experienced it myself. Now I think that things has been taking to the next level, in a very bad way. About a week ago I got told by the doctors that I have uterine cancer. I am gonna have a surgery where they remove my uterus, and there is a big chance that, the surgery will remove the cancer completely, unless the test of it, will show it was deeper then they thought, then I have to go through chemotherapy, and so on. But this should not be something that I will die off. This post is not about my cancer, but about how people are cruel against each other here in the community. Just to be clear, and to spare you some time, I am not gonna mention any names here. I just hope that the people reading this, have a really bad taste in their mouth, and regret what they said. I told some people here from the community about my cancer, and then 2 of the people, was in a discord with some other people from the community, and my situation was mentioned in the convocation. I myself have heard this convocation, since it got recorded by one of my friends, and holy shit, it was disgusting. One of the people in the convocation said "well at least she can not have babies, so we don't have to worry about there being more people like her around" another thing that was said was "I wish she had brain cancer instead, it would make sense, since she is so retarded" and the last one I am gonna mention is "Is it rape if she don't have a uterus" I get that some people in here has problem with each other, but to hate people so much over the internet, and wish them bad things is so horrible. We can not all get along here, and that is fine, but just ignore the people then. I understand that some things, can not be forgiven or forget, but most drama and fights in this community is over stupid stuff. I will ask and hope that some of you, will make a mends with the people that you have problems with, and remember that it's not worth it to be that angry or hateful towards a person you have never meet. We all have problems and things going on in our lives, and just think about that there is probably a reason that the person you "hate" is acting like they are maybe because they are going through some stuff themselves. I hope that people here will reach out to each other more and talk things out. Also remember that just because you are in a group or hanging out with a group of people you don't have to dislike the same people as them. Make you own judgment about people. And just to clarify this, I am not going after specific people, I just hope that people in this community will think about this.

    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...

    -Please note that this is the whitelist version of the Lore, and a following Lore+ version will be posted and pinned in the L&S section that contains more information, detail, and more description. Everything people need to know is here, and more pictures will be added to the Lore+ version which will flesh out and give some visuals. Thank you guys for your patience, we hope you will like it.- DayZRP Community Lore Table of Contents 1. Prologue 2. Introduction 3. First Week 4. Intervention 5. Second Week 6. 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.

    Our website is powered by a community system called Invision Community (aka IPS). A new update for IPS version 4.2 is currently in beta and should be released within a month or two. This will mean quite a lot of changes on the website and some of them directly affect your content and customizations. You can read this thread on IPS website to read more about what's new. I will be performing a clean install of the community on version 4.2 which means a lot of custom content will be deleted to both increase performance and get rid of issues that were caused by the original migration to this website system back in November 2016. Some of these issues include profile problems, warning points not expiring, low website performance, broken Steam integration and other smaller issues that I haven't been able to resolve. We will also get a new look for the website, with a lighter theme and less overwhelming red everywhere. A screenshot of an early version of this theme can be found here. I will also use that opportunity to do major in game changes we've all been waiting for - lore wipe. As a member there's a few things you will need to think about before the update hits. Here's a list of items that you as members have to note and prepare for and in some cases back up your data. At the same time as I will do the website update we will also do the long awaited lore wipe - the lore will be replaced with a new one. The in game timeline will be reset. All groups and characters will be deleted along with all data associated with them. Back up your data if you want to keep your content! We obviously have backups in case some data needs to be desperately restored in the future, but it will be done as an exception only! Group system on the website will be replaced with a new one so all new groups after the lore wipe will be created in this new system. Factions will be no more, along with settlements. A rule enforced safe zone will replace those with a lore faction as owners. The lore faction and its safe zone will be introduced some time into the new lore, once it makes sense story wise. You can discuss the safe zone here. Profile customizations and settings will be wiped. That means your avatar, cover photo, signature, profile background, profile music and other Premium settings will be reset. Background music for your profiles or characters will no longer be possible to be uploaded directly to the server, instead you will have to upload the file to somewhere else and then link to it. Old warnings carried over from the old website will be deleted. Yes, after 5 years we are doing an amnesty on your old wrong doings and removing your history. Only warnings issued on this new website will be kept (so everything since November 2016). Final warnings however will be kept and re-added. Some of the custom features on the website won't be ready when we do the upgrade, so we may temporarily lose some of the functionality and extra features that we currently have. You have a month before the lore wipe, use this time wisely and finish off old business that you have with characters or groups. Back up all your character and group data if you want to keep it for future generations. There will be a event series that gives some kind of closure to the current lore. Questions about that should go to the LoreMaster team. The update is scheduled for JULY 23rd (Sunday). The new website and servers with new lore will open on July 24th, on DayZRPs 5th anniversary.

    Dear Community I will have to leave Staff at this point as my priorities have changed in RL. I thought the three weeks break would give me the time to get everything done, but sadly that is not enough and I have to change my focus. It was a blast all those years and I dont regret anything. I had much fun and I got to know so many lovely people. This Community is still my home and I wont leave, since I enjoy hanging around and of course I enjoy playing and roleplaying. There are so many people I would love to thank personaly but I cannot name them all. In general, I would love to thank you all for your support, your feedback, may it be a pat on the back or criticism, for your nice words, for discussions and suggestions. Without you, you active players and members, I would have not been able to do this and without you DayZRP would be long gone. Thanks to the people I was able to work with during my time in Staff. I know your good intentions and you all work(ed) hard to keep DayZRP going. I will absolutely miss the time. Again, thank you all for your support in every way. With much love, Terra

    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.

    Group has been archived, thank you everyone. I would also like to mention about everyone who gave us a headache during the run of Anarchy and constantly tried to attack us one way or another that regardless of that, we still had fun and didn't care about that bullshit. Because that's what you're supposed to do here, have fun. I thought everyone in the server was nice until I actually RP'd with these people and ran a proper hostile group. We ran into people trying to fuck our RP up (OOCly), people trying to get us banned one by one, people constantly trying to trap us, snake us out and everything like that. But you know why we remained strong and stayed here? Because people couldn't find a way to take us out, because unlike what everyone likes to say, we stayed true to our word and we followed the rules. In 4 months of existence we rounded up 4 bans, that's about it. Compare that to a 20 man roster, with dozen encounters every day and thousands of hours combined. We decided to stop having discussions about reports and situations and we tallied like 5 reports in less than a day. See, when you decide to have fun and actually talk shit out you can actually have fun in this game. People think the people in this group are dickheads and non-rping noobs. But you know what? I've RP'd with people that people claimed to be the "best". Honestly? They were trash. RP is what you make of it in the moment, not everyone will like our RP, but people think that we are people's personal maids when it comes to RP. Not every interaction will be the best but I know for a damn fact that everyone in Anarchy strived for the best out of every situation. To the people that decided to listen to the rumors, oh well - you spent all that time hiding and missed out on some great RP - to the people who RP'd with us, thank you, it's been a pleasure to RP with you.

    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.

    Welcome to the 2018 rule overhaul thread. You will be presented a rule draft which was carefully *cough cough* cut and copy pasted from the current rules in order to reduce the overly restrictive nature of majority of them. Here you can see the current draft: https://www.dayzrp.com/newrules/ Major changes are as follows: Focus switch from rules to role play. We believe that if role play is good and enjoyable, rules shouldn't matter much as role play is the #1 priority here. Most rule breaks can be punished without need for restrictive rules (like the hostage rules telling you exactly when you can or cannot kill a hostage). Instead, Game Masters can just judge quality of RP that resulted from players actions on case to case basis and whether that decision made sense based on IC. Rule points reduced from 15 to 4, rules covering only the bare necessities giving freedom to the players to better role play in a chaotic, post-apocalyptic world where there are no rules or law enforcement Removed a lot of restriction rules that may no longer be an issue or were unnecessary and covered by other rules. Removal of hostile/peaceful characters, all rules apply the same to everyone Old kill rights split into "defense rights" that can be shared with anyone you play with and are valid when you were being initiated upon, and "kill rights" that you can share with your approved group members, which are valid when you're the one initiating on someone. Things you should vote on that the staff is currently split about: RULE 3.4 - Choose whether NLR rule should stay as it is now where you remember the situation you died in, or be changed back to previous setting where you forgot the entire situation that lead to your death (that's how it is defined in the draft) RULE 4.1 - Reason for initiation - some staff believe there should be no reason requirement in order to attack other players, as long as the role play provided is good and engaging.

    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.

    Hello DayZRP members! I'm announcing a few changes that will be made in the community, some immediately, some in the coming days or weeks. As always I would love to hear your feedback on these changes so that we can tweak them together to everyones liking. 1. Server switch It's been a few weeks since release of DayZ server files and thanks to @Kerkkoh our admin tools are now complete. Admins and GMs are able to fly around the map, teleport players, spawn items, zombies and wolves, and even more which should help enormously with creating role play focused events and unique content. All admin tool actions are logged to a file that only I will have access to, so any abuse of power will be found quickly and dealt with swiftly, so that you as players can rest assured that the server continues to work with fair play in mind. We are also planning to mod the game client side with some custom RP focused additions, which will require you to download a mod folder and start the game with special command line in order to join our server, but that is coming later on and we will have a separate announcement for that. Anyway, the current S1 server hosted by GamingDeluxe does not allow for modding at this time, therefore we will be switching our main server to the self hosted one where we have full control over every aspect of the server. It will also have 100 slots and is hosted on better hardware which should help with performance. What this means for you is a wipe. Not just of persistence (items on the ground, stashes, tents and vehicles), but also of all characters as the new server will work on a separate database and the data cannot be transferred between the servers. We would like to switch the server some time this week before the weekend. --- UPDATE 2018-10-05 Server switch is scheduled for Friday evening server time. 2. Server changes New server means changes. As I already mentioned the new server will be 100 slots. We don't actually know if it can manage that many players and stay stable, but I suppose we will eventually find out and experiment with the max slots so that the inevitable lag does not harm role play too much. We have not one but two dedicated servers, each equipped with dual Xeon processors with SSDs, 96GB of RAM and 1Gbit fibre optic uplink at our disposal, so hardware should not be a problem. Besides slot changes we've also tweaked a few things and settings on the server, here are some of them: VOIP quality raised, which means that everyone will sound clearer and louder. The downside is that you will lose some of the 3D sound perception (from which direction someone is speaking). Let us know based on your experience if the setting is satisfactory or we should lower the sound quality for the sake of situational awareness. All players will spawn with a working hand radio on the new server, we hope that this will eventually remove need for 3rd party communication and reduce metagaming. If possible through modding we plan to vastly increase the range of these radios to make them more practical. Please use them to increase immersion! When posting radio chatter threads on forums, try to add a real working frequency of in game radio to it. Spawning points will be altered. After 3 years of running from the beaches of Chernarus as a new spawn, it's time for a change. When you start playing your character on the new server you will find yourself deep in a dark mysterious forest somewhere in South Zagoria. Will you find your way out? Because of overwhelmingly positive reaction to the suggestion posted here, the night time on the server has been extended. It should now start getting dark sooner and there should be at least 1 hour real time of night time, right before the server restart. --- UPDATE 2018-10-05 All of the above changes will be present on the new server after the switch. We will have polls about the spawns as well as VOIP quality so that we can decide whether to keep or change them based on your feedback. 3. Events Now that we have admin tools, it's time to finally do some events! You can expect admins flying around and spawning unannounced hordes of zombies or wolves near groups of players, adding more dynamic and unpredictable threat to your regular gameplay. We also plan to do a large scheduled event this or next weekend similar to old Invasion events from DayZRP mod, where the objective for players is to band together and stop an incoming horde of zombies from taking over a city or other important location. More details on that event will be available in a dedicated event thread that should be created today or tomorrow. The event will be held on a separate server where you will be geared to the teeth with ammo, weapons and what not. Fight for your lives! --- UPDATE 2018-10-05 The large scheduled invasion event has been postponed until next week, I simply didn't have enough free time to create and properly prepare an event this weekend because of work and other RL commitments. The unannounced random events created by GMs and admins will still happen. 4. Character names Now that we have a known workaround for the character name issue, we will be turning back on the enforcement of character pages as well as tracking of character play time. This means that unless you fix your in game name using this workaround, you will be unable to join the server, as you will be kicked for invalid character name. The workaround is available here: --- UPDATE 2018-10-05 This will be turned on and enforced on the new server, so make sure to fix and test your in game names before todays evening. 5. Getting rid of leaving threads The recent waves of leaving threads are leaving a sour taste in our mouths. A lot of people suddenly feel like "leaving the community" for one reason of another which is fine, but in reality it's more of taking a few months break and writing a rant bundled with throwing a few last jabs at other members on their way out. Also the staff members are getting tired having to monitor and moderate these threads, close them after 24h, revoke peoples posting rights. Then a month or two later someone wants to come back and want their rights back, creates a support ticket, one of the admins has to un-revoke the posting rights, this usually causes an issue with restoration of whitelisted status, which causes another ticket to fix that... *breathes* Yeah, not worth it. Introductions and leaving forum will be turned into "Newcomers" forum where new people can be welcomed to the community as well as ask basic questions about it. Leaving threads will be abolished completely and instead users wanting to "leave" will be asked to execute a manual action, here is a demonstration of said action. No posting rights or whitelist will be revoked for anyone, no bans on request will be issued and existing restrictions for people who already left will be lifted. If you wish to post a rant about something or someone you don't like we suggest trying general or suggestion forums or even PMs. If you really want to leave the community there is now only one way of doing so and that is to send us a support request for deletion of your account, which we are obliged to do as per EU regulations. Your account and information associated with it will be then be wiped from the website within 48 hours and SteamID blacklisted. --- UPDATE 2018-10-05 This has been completed.

    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.

    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.

    Game is rated mature. Community members are recommended to be 18+ before joining. IC is IC, it's all role play. People who get offended OOC because of IC role play have a problem seperating the two, this usually manifests as increased sodium levels. Sure, one can get angry when subjected to rule breaks or bad role play, but if one is getting good role play, but still get angry or offended because of what kind of character someone is playing or which derogatory words they use, that's not healthy. Third party ToS like Twitch or YouTube are irrelevant to us, that's a problem of the content creator to comply with. My personal opinion is that if one can stream Mafia 3 which is full of racism, one can stream DayZRP. With recent rule changes we have abandoned outright banning certain types of RP and instead focus on judging quality of RP in general. If you believe someone is overdoing their racist/homophobic role play or doing it in a trolly way, submit a report with a video and we'll take care of it.

    I think I and many others have noticed a change in attitude from Rolle and I guess now the admin team in recent months. A shift towards a less forgiving and more "my way or the highway" approach. I cite the lore wipe as marking the beginning of this change and the way groups, specifically hostile groups were threatened with removal and punish from Rolle, something that is continuing. Other important events are Dusty's perma ban and, from personal experience, my removal from staff. But I'd say one of the most drastic and uncalled for displays of admin authority was tonight with the banning of 4 individuals from a report by the same administrator who reported them. Something Rolle approved of. The exercise of Rule 4 in a way that only paints a picture of the admin team and Rolle simply not giving a fuck what anyone else thinks because they run the server and they will do as they please. The first instance of this was JimRP giving me warning points for a status I put on his profile and then denying my ban appeal himself. Now we have Aiko making a report against a group of people without video evidence, waiting for a PoV and then banning all of them minutes after it was posted. This "Deal with it" attitude in my opinion is extremely detrimental to the community. I don't play on the servers because I am not satisfied with DayZ right now, something most people agree on illustrated by the decline in players, but seeing this type of behavior dissuades me from ever playing again. I can only imagine how current players must feel knowing now that if they slip up the admins will not hesitate to permanently remove them at a moment's notice with Rolle's blessing. I can only imagine how new players might perceive the casual removal of players by administrators in a report they made. I can only imagine how the rest of staff must feel about this whole thing, especially Gamemasters who have been basically cast aside for a liberal use of Rule 4. I made a poll to gauge these opinions exactly. I didn't want to get sucked into some drama in this community again, I prefer being a lurker who beanz posts or banters in status updates. I don't like having to call out Rolle or the admin team, since the other two haven't given their opinion and because I considered Aiko one of my best mentors in staff. But I firmly believe this attitude will kill the community and there are no viable alternatives. This is the only DayZ roleplaying community that isn't a pile of shit, so let's not turn it into one.

    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.

    I have no words to express how much I do not want you in this community. Okay, so your friend was banned for combat logging. Yes, he was, there is no difference between that and "emergency logging". You log out before that 30 minutes is up, you get a CL ban. Onto your next line of though, no one has ever been banned for 2 days for KoS. KoS is 7 days, RDM is 3 days, attempted KoS is 3 and Attempted RDM is 2. No one is lying about standard punishments, this community has been around for 4 years, we have a lot of things in place that don't change. Castiel is not a part of the Kindred group nor is he biased. You sound pretty mad that you and your friend were legitimately banned. No one who is in the group of the accused or the OP can handle a report, ever. And finally, what the hell abuse of power are you talking about? Let's get this straight: You use an IC hate as a justification for RDMing someone, claim the GM is bias because you don't know that Combat Logging and "Emergency Logging" have literally no difference, and then you start flaming people in your own discussion because for some reason you're too mad to realise that you've gotten every single part of your point wrong? Reviewed, permabanned.

    It’s been 27 years since the collapse of Communism in Chernarus, but it is no cause to celebrate. A shadow has been casted over what sparse cities and villages existed in Chernarus after the Soviet Union - Nationalism. It had always been an issue in Chernarus. With the launch of Operation Alpenröschen during World War 2 into the Black Mountains and unto the proud city of Novigrad, the Nazi menace established a local pro-Nazi regime, made up of die-hard nationalists with a bone to pick with the Soviet government. The Chernarussian State, as some referred to it, was a spectre of things to come. Thankfully, the proletariats and those proud of their Motherland’s accomplishments rallied together to defeat the traitors. The situation in 1943 was not too different to the situation in 2009. The sons and daughters of those very proletariats, workers, and patriots rallied together once more against the fascist menace. This time, the workers were alone. There was no Soviet Army to swoop in from the North, over the South Zagorian cities and factories, over the rolling hills and through the dense pine forests. They were alone, but it made no difference. They fought long and hard. But, in the end, it didn’t matter. The fascists were backed up by the Imperialist West and they brought their drones, helicopters and planes. The fascists viciously hunted down the leaders of 2009. Many were executed, under guises of genocide, insurrection and murder - all lies of course. It is not murder to defend oneself. Now, despite everything that is going on. Despite the Apocalypse arriving in Chernarus - the fascists and reactionaries do not stop. They do not think to work together with one another. The foreigners trapped within our borders are prosecuted. Killed en masse and hunted, just as we were during those fateful days in 2009. I ask of you, my fellow workers - rise up against this menace. Bear your arms proudly, under the Red Banner. Fight back the reactionaries and liberate yourselves. "Workers of the world, unite!" 1943-1955 Partisanship had always been a part of life in the Black Mountains. The mountain town of Tuapse was in fact famous for it and thus, the concept of partisanship was nothing new come 1943. During Napoleon’s invasion of Russia in 1812, small bands of civilians harassed the French and their allies before and after the retreat from Moscow. When the Kaiser’s army snuck in during World War 1, the Germans were forced to pull units from the front line to deal with the partisan activity and ultimately, the men and women from Tuapse participated in the Russian Civil War, founding small Red detachments, which were particularly successful in South Zagoria. When German Gebirgsjäger units, accompanied by traitorous Cossack SS-divisions attacked key Russian fortifications in the Black Mountains, partisan groups from towns like Tuapse proved invaluable in providing guidance through the treacherous mountain ranges and in attacking key supply routes, effectively trapping several detachments and platoons in the freezing cold mountain peaks. For their efforts, a small monument was erected in Tuapse, which only ever attracted four or five would be historians yearly. More importantly, Natasha Dmitrievna, a leader in Tuapse, posthumously received the Order of the Red Banner for her efforts. A woman, from such an obscure town, receiving such a prestigious award -- it shocked people. Ultimately, however, it solidified the town’s loyalty. Dmitrievna moved into the Chernarussian SSR after the war to live a quieter, more secluded life. She moved there with her two sons, Vladim and Alexander and husband - Abram. There, they founded a small rural town specializing in peaches and apples, named Stalinisi. People came and went, usually with the picking seasons. Only a few families remained, participating in local community activities and other then a few state interactions, a completely autonomous life. 1991 The town lived independently throughout the existence of the Soviet Union, only ever receiving a few calls for conscription and police visits for rowdy Chernarussians with a bone to pick. This changed, of course, with the Chernarussian Declaration of Independence in 1991. During the riots, Stalinisi was raided by small nationalist militias, with tools and supplies being stolen and hunting stalls and sheds being burned. The biggest shock came a few months later, when the newly established Chernarussian government came to the village with an ultimatum: remove the villages name and identity or be evicted. The choice was obvious, the men were too old to put up a fight and the boys too young to take their place. The village became Stary Yar and according to de-Communisation policies and the small monument dedicated to paristan Natasha Dmitrievna was demolished. This was a wakeup call for the denizens of Stary Yar, things were changing whether they liked it or not. They would have to fend for themselves in this new era of Chernarussian nationalism. The men buried their hunting rifles in fear of them being taken off them and the disgruntled ex-soldiers hid their old AK rifles under beds and in toy lockers. The truck drivers that used to transport apples and peaches from the orchards to the factories to be processed were laid off, replaced with Chernarussians in dire need of a job. Hell, even the police-men were replaced and reorganised. This major change sowed the seed of dissent and would enable the Chernarussian Movement of the Red Star to gain control over the area. 2007 The scars from the 1991 raids and de-Communisation were still very real, and the foundation of the Chernarussian Movement of the Red Star gave the village’s anger a productive release. For the most part, the ChDKZ was a legal movement, but they were planning something big. Anton Grigorievich , father of two young boys, was a devout Chedaki and planned to use the town as a training ground for Russian paramilitaries and weapon storage. From there on out, Stary Yar became a hotbed for extremist organisations. Anton’s two sons, Roma and Kirov merely watched as his father met shady men in suits and turtlenecks. They were old enough to consider politics, but not old enough to comprehend them. They’d talk about equality and the liberation of the working man, whilst beating down on rival Chernarussian gangs of boys in the woods. Anton could see that his two sons needed a productive outlet and an education. Hence, he gave them a run-down course on socialism and the implementation of the ideology just before giving the eldest a rifle and the younger a pair of binoculars. They’d train together for the remainder of the year. Late in the year, just before the snow fell a small brawl between a group of Russians and Chernarussians erupted. Kirov was stabbed during the fist-fight. Outraged, Kirov went home to Stary Yar and snuck out later in the night with his father’s pistol, whilst Anton and Roma were at the hospital. He rallied some of the other boys, who were keen for retaliation. The intention was to just scare him off and give him a warning. Maybe rough him up a little bit. But things turned sour. It turns out that this one particular Chernarussian boy was a drug dealer and had his stock to protect. A small gunfight erupted and Kirov shot the boy dead. It didn’t change him, it didn’t make him feel any better either. He simply knew that he had the ability to kill someone. This marked a turning point for the duo. They trained more rigorously, and even ordered some old military surplus online; smersh, camo netting – that kind of thing. Soon enough, their little gang of boys turned into a serious paramilitary, full of anarchists, Marxists and misfits. This undeniably made Anton proud and soon enough, their newfound paramilitary was also rocking the ribbon of St. George and the Chernarussian Red Star. They learnt that funds were desperate, so they took up robbing. Police-stations with armouries and lazy guards, desolate ATMs and local banks. In enough time, they’d earned enough dirty tanks to arm the entire local area and extra. In December, just before Christmas day, Roma would be arrested for possession of an illegal firearm – an AK-74U to be exact. For every bullet, a year would be added. The bias judge that presided over him gave him a life sentence without parole and in Chernarus, a life sentence really is for life. It was an outrage, but no strike or protest would change it. His younger brother plotted, but their father assured him that there was nothing they could do – yet. 2009 The twenty-first of November was cold, but otherwise clear. The Civil War had been raging for a few months now, with Anton’s militia seeing constant combat. The absence of Roma had greatly dampened morale in the militia, knowing that they walk free whilst one of their comrades are stuck in a tiny prison cell. Thus, they hatched a plan to break him out before he was transferred to Miroslavl. The men involved slipped through checkpoints as refugees seeking a new home, posing as Chernarussians to avoid suspicion. These men then gathered in a warehouse in Kamyshovo, where a fisherman had lent them a boat and where their weapons were waiting. A stolen blueprint revealed that there was a pipe that connected to the sea and into the maintenance room and ran underneath the prison. The plan was to rig this pipe with explosions and blow a large section of the prison from underneath it. Then, whilst the guards were distracted, they would climb up to the outer wall, rig it with explosives and create a hole in which they could allow prisoners to escape from during yard time. The plan failed for the most part. The explosion shook the ground, but nothing of real consequence happened above ground and the guards were still present upon the insertion to the wall. However, luckily, the guards were easy pickings for the battle-hardened warriors of the Stary Yar militia and they were still able to rig the wall. After retreating to a safe distance, they blew the wall. Confused and disgruntled guards watched as about fifty-five men in striped pyjamas ran out. On their boat, they took about five men with them – one of them Roma. Only a few escapees actually escaped par from that five, the rest being captured or shot. The brothers transferred out of the Stary Yar militia soon after the prison break, finding a home in a reconnaissance battalion, known for guerrilla tactics and assassination missions. Usually, they’d target people like local priests known for sheltering NAPA militiamen, local nationalist leaders and checkpoint officers. Rarely, anyone of importance was killed. Upon a raid further south, they came into an abundance of military grade uniforms and kit, effectively transforming the reconnaissance battalion into an actual fighting force. Gorka uniforms, mess kits hell, even belts. The battalion was present for war-crimes, but was never brought to light for any involvement or knowledge of such actions and after the Civil War, most members avoided persecution by splitting up and re-integrating into Chernarussian society. Those who spoke Chernarussian found this easy, but those who only spoke Russian were found and persecuted easily. The two brothers moved to a quiet town and lived out their lives named Zvir. Small amounts of contact was maintained between those who formed friendships during the war. 2017 The two brothers, Roma and Kriov, were for the most part unaware of the Apocalypse. The town of Zvir was too isolated and self-sufficient to realise what was going on. Suspicion was only created when a shipment of bottled water failed to arrive. At a town meeting, the two brothers volunteered to go to Zelenogorsk to either go pick it up or figure out why it’s so late. They arrived at a checkpoint. It didn’t feel out of the ordinary, the Chernarussian Defence Force always liked to bother the civil populace. But, no one came out of the checkpoint. Confused, they drove up to find it abandoned. Casings were scattered on the ground. Further up, there was a pile of bodies. The blood splattered on their clothing wasn’t a regular, crimson red. Instead, it was blackened and unnatural looking. Their faces were twisted and their irises were non-existent, just white and blood shocked. They quickly drove over to a payphone - but the line had been cut. Confused and frightened, they drove into Zelenogorsk to be met with hordes of standing corpses. They drove slowly at first, trying not to hit anyone, but then the undead began to bang on their windows. They picked up speed and hit as many as they could, speeding out of the most clear exit. Town after town, they saw the same thing. Figuring that travelling any further was pointless, they tried to send a radio message back to Zvir. No response. Again, nothing. Fearing the worse, they camped out for weeks, living off the land. Eventually, they figured that they should send a message over the radio, hoping to contact any of their old comrades from the Civil War. After the third message, they got a reply. They met where it all started, Zvir and reformed the movement. They planned to take advantage of the Apocalypse to create a new society.

    *The wave of intense static and white noise begins to fade as a strange broadcast begins to clear through the noise, making itself heard over all of South Zagoria and beyond* (You may need to adjust volume through out the broadcast) *The static and white noise begins to overwhelm the air waves once again as the broadcast comes to an end*

    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: Server one, Kabanino Approximate time and date of the incident (SERVER TIME): 21:00 Your in game name: Anthony Romani Names of allies involved: SCUM Name of suspect/s: @Puncture (Ronnie Johnson) Friendly/Enemy vehicles involved (if any): N/A Additional evidence? (video/screenshot): http://plays.tv/video/59235e3697e95f97e3/games (excuse my brother in the background) Detailed description of the events: After sitting in a fairly large que I finally get into the server and head my way towards Kabanino. I go to the well to get a drink and I'm initiated on from an unknown location. This was only text. no VOIP. I then runaway and link up with my group. We stay around kab for about 5 minutes or so, I then decide to go back to the well, this time I have activated my handy dandy recording software tool playstv. I run up to the piano house once more and I'm initiated on again with only text. No VOIP, no nothing. This time we know its from the piano house, so we circle Kab a few times keeping an eye on it. I then link up with my good friend and combat partner @Flash and we go ahead and check piano again. We're then initiated on, and shocker, there's no VOIP, only text. Time passes and @Hebee, aka Chris Kyle, snipes two of the aggressors from the house. The remaining ones flee north and we go south to log off for the day. Cuddling up in a house and initating on the town is textbook abuse of game mechanics. You're clearly trying to cause confusion so you can gain KOS rights for non compliance. This is a hot topic recently that Oliv himself warned everyone not to do in his recent announcment, and Puncture I believe you too were angry about people doing this.
