    Hello DayZRP staff team and community. I would like to apply for a position on the DayZRP staff team. And I thought a video would be the best way to show my thoughts about how I could contribute.

    Yea, yea this originates with this abomination of a decision but it's also a problem I've seen quite a bit lately. Disregarding the points situation, which is honestly a lame excuse since among the 24 members it equates to 4.42 points each, it seems that staff are taking criticism of groups too seriously if you actually look at things in perspective. For every person that complains about a group like this there's a lot that were either pleased with their RP or didn't give a shit. These guys had to wait 3 weeks without staff giving them any kind of guidance (at least based on the thread) only to have everything they've been doing in game end abruptly, while @Cowboy's group gets accepted in a week. I'm not saying it shouldn't have been, I just wish that's how the group approval process worked for everyone, as being strict with some groups and lenient to others is a really bad look for the community. In the week after they got unarchived Pamyati had not one piece of bad feedback on their thread, only people complaining about 2.3 to Rolle because they can't be adults and approach the group about their problems unless the admin of the community tells them to. Also, on 2.3. If a group's being hunted by another group I can understand if some kind of OOC arrangement needs to be made if no matter what the defending group does they get dominated. HOWEVER, when a group is actively being hunted, knows they're being hunted, and simply moves to make another mega hub on the other side of the map I'm gonna say they didn't put in enough effort IC to get out of the situation. A good example of this would be @Chief's group pre-lore wipe. They kept getting attacked, but instead of going to Rolle and trying to essentially ruin the group/groups attacking them they moved around to isolated places and eventually ended up on Skalisty where people were rarely willing to go for a massive firefight. It seems that people want to play one way and one way only and if anyone dares to make them change then they go to the forums instead of actually role playing out a group conflict. I know that no matter how I say this I'm gonna sound like PVP scum but if groups took shit on the chin and changed up their tactics a bit instead of getting upset they lost in a video game I think everyone would have a lot more fun overall. I've been on both side of the situation, I understand it's frustrating sometimes when things don't go your way but when people don't want to start conflict with a group because they know they'll take it OOC then it's pretty bad. TLDR: A lot of you need to make a better effort to deal with issues in game instead of on the forums

    Can we put in a rule to remove all rape RP etc? people can take it to discord if they wish to do stuff like that.

    Firstly, I would like to say that I think it’s a great idea for us as leaders to communicate more with each other to address issues and work to improve RP for our groups and others in the community. I personally disagree that everything should be handled IC. Why do we have rules, forum discussions and reports? Because we RP as characters, as people who may act and think very differently from the person behind the screen. Ultimately, we are all here to have fun and if the roleplay you are being subjected to is not enjoyable, then people should be able to reach out to the other party to constructively communicate their concerns. If we do not talk to each other OOC, it is very hard to determine if someone genuinely enjoys the RP and make adjustments accordingly to ensure that both sides are content. I think it is a very selfish attitude for a person or group to subject people to the RP they find entertaining with no consideration for the other side and I see a lot of this happening in the community sadly. Telling someone to deal with it IC when the solution may be detrimental to their RP is equally as harmful. In my opinion, poor quality hostile RP is forcing a fight or flight response, leading to constant unwanted PvP or people moving bases and hiding in the woods. While this may be characteristic of the apocalypse, this is a game we play to have fun. This same fight or flight response can be seen OOC, with constant arguments on the forums or people leaving the community. The issues will not be solved IC! With that being said, I have spoken to my group regarding feedback for this thread. What things do they enjoy/would like to see more of? We enjoy interacting with random people on our travels or at our base which constitute more than a hi/bye or a quick trade. We’d like to see different people/groups meet up to RP and build stories. We enjoy maintaining good relations with other groups, setting up trade and security deals which are of mutual benefit. For example, having a trader convoy actually travel between bases to exchange requested items. We enjoy negotiating arrangements to ensure our safety from hostile groups. We enjoy the threat of good hostile RP that does not involve constant initiations and raids. For example, our camp has been tormented for weeks by a dynamic group who broadcast creepy coded radio messages and pick us off one by one. This has been some of the best story forming, tense RP I’ve had and OOC we eagerly await their arrival because its just so terrifying and well done. We would like to see more movement across the map. With people remaining inside bases, it seems that you can run for hours without meeting anyone. Our group concept revolved around picking off the lone wanderer but lately, we struggle to find good RP. This leads to more internal RP, which as much as I love it, doesn’t contribute positively to the community as a whole. Since we have such a large group, we aim to split people up so that while the base is still manned, others wander the map and interact more with other groups. What is it they are displeased with and how can we correct this? We work incredibly hard IC and OOC to maintain good relations with the hostile groups to mitigate their reasons to attack us but it is still a daily struggle for us to avoid and deal with poor quality hostile RP and unenjoyable trolling/memeing. We do not fight back against groups as a rule for fear of endless hostilities and we do not appreciate people taking advantage of this. We do not enjoy unprovoked constant attacks on our home or our people. We do not enjoy ‘shut up, stare at the wall’ hostilities, nor do we enjoy being constantly raided and big dicked. We do not enjoy people coming to our camp and baiting initiations or attempting to create reasons to justify initiations. We do not enjoy sexual and racial comments made towards our members. We do not enjoy people accusing us of being a BDSM group. We do not enjoy people loitering outside our camp for no apparent reason. We do not enjoy excessive banter and memeing. We don’t enjoy people walking in and stealing right in front of us because they know we can’t/won’t stop them. We do not enjoy having to flee from our own camp to avoid poor RP. Yet sadly, we are encountering the above way more frequently than we would like. It’s getting to the point where I have to deal with unhappy members daily, which I think is incredibly sad considering the numbers, talent and experience we have. Numerous members are thinking of moving servers and its becoming more common for people to run away and log rather than experience the poor RP from certain groups/individuals. I am struggling to keep everyone positive and focus on the good RP we do have because the negative encounters taint the RP and moods of everyone involved. This will not be corrected by IC means. Sadly, there are those in the community who simply do not care for the enjoyment of others. This needs OOC intervention because as much as I love this community, it’s getting too much even for me. I wish I had a magic solution for this. I personally think that the community is way too lenient when it comes to poor quality RP. The standards are too low in my opinion. The stance appears to be that if it’s not a rule break, its okay. It’s not. This allows people to provide RP that is just acceptable for them not to get banned, but is not pleasant either. The shift of people to other servers has already begun and while the new players may make up the numbers, they do not make up for the skill and experience of the quality RPers that may leave. What style of gameplay/roleplay are they most interested in? We are a group who enjoy both giving and receiving good hostile RP. Our reasons when taking hostages are always IC motivated and we do not steal gear or look to execute. Our purpose is to create long term storylines. We initiate daily but PvP a few times a month only when we have little alternative. We aim to provide quality RP with enough build up to initiations that we very, very rarely have uncompliant hostages. We welcome and enjoy hostilities against us when there is a storyline behind it with goals that don’t involve constant raids, initiations, executions and big dicking. We respect and follow reasonable demands. We do have a substantial amount of internal RP, both hostile and campfire, but we are welcoming to outsiders where appropriate and actively seek external RP daily.

    Here's my issue on the stance. Do the groups that get on the stick-end of getting shit on deserve it? Absolutely. Nothing I can't stand more than people who enter situations with hands already in the air talking shit like they're big dog. CDF literally stopped providing aid to anyone because people just can't be appreciative and respect the situation with the cards they have been dealt. Playing in the CDF has really made me come to a realization- hero groups absolutely fucking suck. I cannot stand being the nice guy, and turning the other cheek to half-assed cheeky comments from the people we spent hours protecting. When they aren't afraid that you will initiate, they speak their minds. Back in Kamenici, we roll into a camp and people got damn quiet. Being a wild card of 'will they initiate?' was the shit because everyone licked your ass and did what was told- until they didn't. These people complaining of 2.3 are the same one's causing sheer frustration with me and pretty much my entire group. I've lost all drive to play the good guy, because we just get handed shit after shit everytime we try and roleplay with people. Regardless, on the other side of the coin, Pamyati aren't cookies and cream either. We're all here to have fun, and roleplay. It's hard to do either with an attack once every 24 hours. The CDF have only ever initiated ONCE in the entirety of the conflict with the Muslims and Pamyati. ONCE. Out of what? 5+ firefights that broke out? The literal first interactions with BOTH of the groups was either a dick measuring contest lead to a firefight, or a casual discussion about some cows in the distance followed by an attempt of being ran up on. Now because of that, we're at war and you're forcing RP away from my group because of it? That's horse shit and you know it. End of the day, let people roleplay. It's not that hard to put a simple thought of 'will the other side have fun?' when going into situations, then what's the point? There's a reason that my group page of the Kamenici has ~7 pages of shit feedback from the time span of September -> February, then the MOMENT I get my group page back it's nothing but positive feedback. Yes, there needs to be an understanding between both sides, and both sides need to acknowledge that they are BOTH contributing to the problem at hand, stop pulling the victim card, and fix yourselves first.

    PVP is really the choice of the Victim, there's no such thing as unwanted PVP. If they didn't want it why would they pull their gun out? If they don't want Hostile groups constantly knocking on their door they should deal with it "in-game" this is a roleplay server and we shouldn't be avoiding RP and running to another place on the map. Negotiate with those who threaten you, yeah maybe you have to supply them with _____ every so often so what? keep up your end of the deal and see how the roleplay goes from there. But nobody ever goes that far as to actually negotiate with hostile groups, all of them would rather run away than follow their demands... and guess what happens? they get attacked then complain on forums even though it is their fault. Hostile group demands tribute -> you disrespect them, talk back through your gate -> they attack you -> you move away the next day -> They come to your door again to negotiate -> You continue the same attitude even though they killed most of the people the night before and they run off -> They hear of your dealings to plan a coalition against your group -> you attack them in retaliation before you get the numbers to attack them -> you then go on the forums to complain although all of this is of your doing because you didn't want to bow down to another group with obviously more power than you do. Here's a flowchart for you guys on how things are working out lately.

    You seem to be a little upset, are you ok? I realize that during approval stage of a group they have to play as a dynamic. For vast majority of groups that is not an issue, since they have no need to initiate that often. From what I have seen, groups first few goals usually involve more peaceful goals like building a base, trading, gathering information or getting their name out there through means that do not involve initiations. Then, when they get approved they move onto their hostile goals, if any. If people run into firefights and show no value for their life then I don't see how that is my fault, my rules do not "force" you to do so. One can just let go and accept defeat if one is in an unfavorable position, no need to "yolo" it. It's ok to lose sometimes if you don't have the tools required to win like the attacker rights. It changes massively who can be hostile and who cannot, because without attacker kill rights you're so much at a disadvantage and completely without reinforcements, your people will keep dying while "running into firefights" just like you said yourself above. I don't write rules to ban people, I can do that on my own personal whim, don't need the justification or backing of the rules to do so. Rules are there to show YOU the players the guidelines about what you can or cannot do, not to justify our bans. Like I said, it is working as intended. Old kill rights allowed for groups of hostile RPers to attack everything that moves without any kind of staff checkups or approval and often without consequences of their actions - they would just swap to a new random character and continue. That is not possible anymore with the new rules and although they are a bit more complicated than the old ones, I think it's a fair trade off as in return we gain more control over hostilities on the server and more groups requesting to be approved.

    I am here to drop in some feedback. Since my first encounters to looking at the forums I have noticed some stuff that is quite odd. I will start with this OOC goal. "Provide outstanding roleplay to the best of our abilities for everyone we come across" When you guys created a camp and wanted to do a neutral hub and be at peace with the hostile groups why ruin that? Why go out of your way to end what could of been potentially ever lasting peace with some of these groups? If you guys want to be left alone why start conflict? Also why are some of you guys granting people perms to take fingers or to scar your characters then completely dismissing the RP that happened why? Now onto Shroud's video uploaded on a report. You are playing a song that was released a month ago how is this outstanding RP? This is out outright immersion breaking and makes no sense what so ever. Why was this done? for memes? Now on to this goal. "Maintain a respectable image within the community" A member of your group was quite clearly upset with the outcome of a situation that your group caused. He went out of his way to shit post about it claiming rule breaks that did not happen? What was the point in this? He then proceeds to then go on a stream and shit talk people saying they only care about PvP. He then goes out of his way to do this on stream. I don't understand why you would complain about PvP and then proceed to gloat about kills you got on stream? The RP I have witnessed recently does not make sense and I hope you guys can get this sorted out.

    I don't really get it. But if I understand it correct, I'd say all IC interactions between groups should be handled/discussed IC. I don't see the need to discuss IC actions OOC - being a leader of a group or not.

    I'm going to have to agree here with parts of this. A lot of people these days want RP to go their way only, whilst shittalking half of the server and then pushing for 2.3 because they're being attacked for reasons they put on themselves. I mean, please... This isn't a safe space. Talk shit, get hit.

    False 2.3 accusations are a complete waste of peoples time. Why should people have to constantly reply and comb through 2.3 accusations more than once in fear if they do not respond to each claim it will be seen as fact by staff and result in punishment. 2.3 is far to easy of a card to play and excessively used lately. There needs to be a counter punishment for a false accusation of 2.3 harsher than a false report judgement. Wastes staffs time and the reported parties time. I am tired of seeing every single legitimate hostile situation being reported. Find IN CHARACTER ways to remove yourself from IN CHARACTER situations. There are PLENTY of groups out there to form friendships with, strength in numbers, not strength in TWO POINT THREE.

    DayZRP does not enforce 3rd party sites ToS, we have our own rules. However, most of the time those media or streaming sites will not ban you or give you any negative repercussions when the content against ToS is outside of your control (like other players in multiplayer games). Therefore you should not be too worried.

    I enjoy "KidRP" as it allows me to NOT get juiced on ICly or chased or threatened with some sort of sexual advance 24/7. But, I also dislike 90% of other ChildRP'ers. For the reasons most people do. They sound like they're 10 years old and ... act a little odd. They either have no idea what the heck is going on around them and act VERY out of touch or they act WAY too mature for the age they're portraying. Don't pitch shift your voice to some squeaker level, most of the time it's cringe. In fact I pitch shift my own voice DOWN because it's "too high pitched" for my current char. I put on my "work voice" which I use with clients because otherwise I get the whole "Hey, how old are you? You sound like you're in High School" crap nearly every conference call and that gets OLD. (Also makes people not take me seriously ... ) Also, people tend to try and make them edgy for some reason? Child soldiers, cannibals, psycho killers who enjoy torture... While these things are real IRL they are incredibly hard to pull off IC. Even children with various mental or physical disorders are very hard to pull off and RP realistically, it's like why give yourself such a challenge and most people would find it hella cringy? But, I also have issues with edgy cringe adult characters too so ... Now, my first char. was RP'd out as a VERY sheltered annoying idiot and God was it hard to be that stupid 24/7 but I also learned a lot playing her and allowed her to "grow up" as I progressed (which I outlined in my journals I did for her). But there are many things I wish I did different with that char. that I am doing with my new one. And I regret a lot of choices I made with her, specially when I was first getting into RP. But, I digress... Like @Xehara said I make sure to limit myself in what I can or cannot do. For example; I don't carry large automatic weapons/Military weapons (in fact I wouldn't carry a mosin or tundra either but sadly Bow and Arrows are not IG atm or I'd roll with those) or heavy battle axes, etc. I only have a pistol and a bat plus some dank ass knives 'cause they cool. I make sure to have a lack of knowledge about adult things related to jobs, finance, diplomacy, wars, survival skills(though for this char I RP having basic camping skills), history, weapons, etc. I make sure to have people "teach" me things. Like how DrMax is currently teaching my character doctor skills so while I can do SOME first aid I cannot like ... fix bullet wounds or patch up missing limbs, or do surgery. I cling to trusted characters because I know ICly that my character isn't independent enough to go off on her own and roam a dangerous world the idea scares her, though maybe later on she can do it. For this char. I wanted to be "overly emotional" as a teen would be. I act loud, and highly foul mouthed because "bad words means I'm an adult, right?". I get sassy, oh so sassy and snarky when I feel safe around my friends and not around large groups. I blow things out of proportion and hyper focus on what she'd consider the main topic. But, when it comes to dangerous situations I act very scared, quiet, reserved and attentive as a young girl would do. "Yessir, no sir." etc. I cannot defend myself very well against a adult, I cannot shoot and kill someone (having never done it before), and I cannot lose what I cling onto ICly (the people around me). AKA, I act hormonal lol is the best way to describe it. But I do not act stupid. At 15/16/17 a young girl character shouldn't be a idiot unless they're special needs. Should be able to tell when someone is being shady, who means unwell, and is also dangerous. Should know what is a toy and what isn't a toy and tbh avoid "toys" at all costs, she's 16 and doesn't want to be see as a baby regardless but still retain excitement for simple things like making a good shot and asking if anyone saw it. Cooking a good meal, eating candy or sodas and enjoying seeing something neat like a heli crash. I try not to be annoying, but when I have time to sit one on one with people I pick their brains about how they feel about certain things as a way for my own char. to learn how to deal with stuff the way the adults around them are doing. Specially away from prying eyes or ears as she doesn't want to be seen as naive or stupid but is still asking for help and guidance in a round about way. I also refrain from oversharing when she feels scared, unsure or frightened about things because to me a young girl trying to be seen as an adult would not vocalize these things in a attempt to appear more "mature". But for the lack of "opening up" and snapping back when people pry into her I make up for in textRP and emotes I try and drop here and there to show that yeah, she's just bullshitting but won't admit it. And yeah, she's scared/overwhelmed/out of her element, etc. I made a personal standard to never RP as young as 13, (or even 14) again, because it was too young for me and ... too awkward to try and make believable. I want the room to be able to develop a character by learning from those around her so 16/17 seemed like a good age range. I am glad people enjoy my RP and don't find it annoying, (<3 you all) I think the other childRP'er I've enjoyed has been @Spartan when playing Ella who was like ...17? Or something. The rest I've had sparse interactions with so I cannot tell how well they RP and even if they did, they probably do a different style than myself! To each their own, you don't like childRP be sure to excuse yourself and say "Fuck I hate kids" or something and leave. BOOM, solution provided.

    Your entire argument is straight up null. This is the same people who then cry about PVP ruining their RP and try to hit people with 2.3. When you literally have the option for peace amd then reject it straight up and cry because you are being attacked, honsstly this is some SJW levels of dellusion. Wake the fuck up.

    Holy cow, that's a bible of a text. Having read through It all I would like to say personally, It's a game and it's online. It's not real life and getting this bent over not getting invited to a discord and believing someone to be OOCly against you is a bit childish. Why not just keep this to dm's? Why do you have to bring everyone in to this, I thought group threads were for actual group feedback and not you being salty about possibly Scarlet not liking you and deciding to exclude you from her group. If she doesn't want you in her group, accept it. There's like what, 900 unique players on our servers that you can interact with? Go find a group of people that would rather interact you and respect you both IC and OOCly preferbly. Not everyoner online or in real life will like you and that's just how the world works. I will also leave some actual feedback for the group as whole since I find you guys RP good and interesting. I did like to start off by saying that the whole group concept is fantastic and I like it since it brings a fun interesting mix to the server although my ''negative'' point will be that from my experience that you guys seem to dabble a lot if even mostly in only internalRP? Please correct me if I am wrong, It might just be that I'm unlucky and I'm not just in the right spots at the right times but you guys seemed to roam more and actual iniate on random people like a month ago which was very fun and interesting to meet strangers who had also interacted with your group. I miss travelling around the Triangle and hearing stories about some infamous group kidnapping people and torturing them, it seemed like you always spiced it up as well and didn't actually torture everyone the same way. If you guys are still not doing this I hope you do pick it up again. And that's really about the only negative thing which I have to say which can be summarised as I would like to see you guys do more external roleplay than internal. But at the same time might just be me who don't happen to be at the right place at the correct time so take It with a bit of salt I suppose? Other than that I find the people i've met from the playhouse has given me exicitng roleplay which I've enjoyed and I wish all of you the best in your future endeavours.

    The group referenced in OP was archived for too many warning points from baiting and invalid kills mostly. 4.42 points per member for a group that is attempting to get approved is A LOT. For comparison, let's just say that 50% of currently active groups are < 1 PPM, 75% < 2 PPM. This group has more than double that and hasn't even been approved yet. Additionally, the memes and attitude in Discord yesterday from the members of the disbanded group about how "we're just gonna continue "dog brain" as dynamic", "this won't stop us", "lololol we're still gonna wreck you" shows me that the decision was fully warranted. Archival has nothing to do with rule 2.3. Anyway, back to the topic. 2.3 protects vulnerable groups so that they can still enjoy their regular RP despite ongoing conflicts and what not. You can't issue an ultimatum to a group that goes against their beliefs or goals and then continue attacking them for not giving in to that ultimatum, that's just not fair. We're here to enjoy RP and have fun, no? Imagine a hypothetical and obviously over dramatized situation where a random group with superior firepower and numbers (let's call it El Presidentes Militia) gives an ultimatum to Pamyati - "become capitalists and serve the US military interests, or else". Obviously they will deny it since it goes completely against what their group is about. And so EPM lock and loads, starts up the A-10s and M1A2 tanks and literally starts turbokerflonking Pamyati everywhere they go. You wanted to role play as Russian military men? Too bad. Strafe runs on the base every day, 105mm HE rounds in the face while doing supply runs to towns, any movement gets followed by drones with thermals and results in devastating firefights. In the end you get locked into your base and the only thing you can do without risking getting immediately held up or killed is talk shit from behind your little wall, of course until the next strafe and bombing run comes tomorrow. Sounds familiar? Oh, what's that, it's unfair? Well, you DID have a choice of accepting the ultimatum, no? So it's your fault that all of this has happened, EPM is completely innocent and just following the RP that YOU chose! See what I did there? That's how it probably feels for some of these groups. There is a counterbalance to the rule though and that is 2.4 which prevents the abuse of the previous rule, just in case someone attempts to create a safe space for themselves. I think these two rules work well together. AFAIK there has only been one 2.3 report and that was for the House. I don't see how you can judge that rule 2.3 is or isn't working from just one report.

    So one strange pattern I've noticed since joining the community 3 years ago, Is people make characters that are anywhere from 12-16, and they act like 5 year olds. It doesn't make much sense to me. I've never seen someone that old that act like literal babies and be so helpless and ignorant. It honestly makes me slightly uncomfortable because people expect you to treat them like 3 year olds when they are literally old enough to do anything and thats not really the kind of RP I want on this kind of server that has extremely mature themes. What are your guys' thoughts and experiences with this? Edit: Plus in an apocalyptic scenario kids would be forced to mature even quicker to survive

    Thank you @keibancz for the kind words. We spend a massive amount of time and effort trying to maintain our neutrality so that we can continue the RP we enjoy in keeping with our group goals. Sadly, these threads keep appearing, serving to highlight the issue that people are struggling to deal with hostilities both by IC and OOC means. Instead of negative responses, I wish that people from both sides would come together to try and make the RP more enjoyable for the community as a whole. These are my thoughts on the matter and what works well for me and my group: If you don’t want conflict with certain people/groups, take active steps to avoid it. Don’t engage them in conflict, don’t shit talk, don’t PvP, don’t go to the areas they frequent. Be polite, be respectful, offer them things instead of waiting for them to take it. If they do initiate, give good RP, try to make deals, bargain, make amends if you do something wrong. If you don’t make these efforts, then don’t complain when they keep attacking. If you’ve done everything you can and they’re still attacking constantly, then by all means, raise your concerns respectfully OOC to the persons involved. Ideally, PM’s first, then feedback, then reports. Find ways to end conflicts If a conflict has already started, I strongly recommend reaching out to the party involved. Maintaining good OOC relations while having IC conflicts is great for ensuring that both sides are happy with the RP. Since this is not a perma death server, be mindful that conflict is likely to be not just a once off. If you find a vulnerable enemy and torture him, expect repercussions. If you PvP once, expect it again… and again. This is where OOC communication is very important. Make a deal IC or OOC and stick to it, even if you lose, or don’t complain about constant hostilities. I have found the ‘PvPers' friendly and accommodating when engaging with them OOC. Talk to them reasonably and politely and they should return the favour. A few other points worth mentioning. I think ‘campfire’ RPers tend to be more vocal on the forums because if you are not willing to PvP, then finding an IC resolution to things can be tough if the other party is insistent on causing trouble. It is incredibly frustrating being subjected to constant ‘big dicking’ and a general, ‘well I will do what the fuck I want because I know you’re not going to stop me’ attitude. Despite my best efforts, this still happens to us occasionally. I will say though that having this us/them mentality is not helpful, nor is constant bitching about it. Salty campfire RPers only add to the problem. A note on hostile RP… I wish people would engage in hostilities with the intention of providing RP enjoyable to both parties instead of simply wanting to win at all costs. Hostile RPers who readily PvP need to realise that they hold huge power over the enjoyment of other people’s RP. Its easy for them to ‘deal with it IC’ because they have the numbers, skills and willingness to fight. But for those of us that don’t want to PvP, it is a huge challenge to deal with it IC. We are relying on you to use your power responsibly and to not be c**nts just because you can. Please can everyone actually listen to the concerns and offer suggestions instead of berating people for trying to discuss issues.

    I haven't been able to bee on for the past 2 weeks due to the whole ban thing but, from what I've seen and heard from the guys and on the thread I can definitely drop some feedback on my view. When you guys started it up it seemed like y'all were just making another group to fuck with us (The Time) at that Time pun intended, so the was a bit of confusion as to why you guys sided with the Mafia and all that jazz but after speaking with you guys for the past 3 or so weeks all that stuff in the past makes sense how it would come about RP. Along with that it's no mystery that the two groups of players the RP boys and y'all had some animosity in the past, I think me shroud dusty and niho got into a roasting match in a group DM with roland before lmao. But I can say now with 100% certainty that it seems like beef has been resolved, which honestly is great. It shows the maturity of your guys group along with our own. So from an OOC standpoint there's my good feedback, you guys are actually trying to bring the community back together by using your approved group status as a jumping point which is a great thing to see from a hostile group. I mean, I tried pretty hard to do the same and I'm glad you guys are carrying that on. Pushing on with the IC stuff, you guys provide a compelling and pretty realistic take on what Radical Islam can do. A lot of people complain you guys are hostile, fair enough that's the point. From my understanding as I've stated in a few other threads the goal of RP is to roleplay something your not and to in alot of cases roleplay something people are fearful off. That's why people RP cannibals, or murders, or psychopaths because those are things that are ingrained in us to be fearful off at a innate level. Radical Islam is along those lines in western society today, it's a legitimate fear for a lot of people, and with you guys providing a look at what Radical Islam could do, and progress to become in the horrors of a zombie apocalypse is a although not unique idea persay it's still a good one. And even though I said not unique, even though it isn't the first radical religious group nor will it be the last, from what I've seen you guys do it with the most authenticity and realism which from my point of view puts you miles above all the rest. Keep of the good work guys Slava JashYati

    As leaders of the community, we hold a responsibility to those who have signed up under our banner and chosen to follow our themes and story lines. We need to be looking out for their best interest and ensuring they have a voice in how the roleplay around them progresses. Because of this, we also have a responsibility to be in contact with one another to ensure the story lines we create between each other are productive and enjoyable for all. As such, I am inviting you all to speak to your member base and get a consensus for their opinions on the current state of the roleplay in general, and bring feedback on the following points: What things do they enjoy/would like to see more of? What is it they are displeased with and how can we correct this? What style of gameplay/roleplay are they most interested in? The end goal here is to begin collaborating with groups that share like interest and keep the stories flowing and interesting so we can all enjoy the game as intended. Please be respectful of the other groups and leaders and remember that the group thread may be a better medium if the feedback is all centered around one group. That said, I'd like to invite the Legends to be the voice of the dynamics who are without a group leader in the council.

    "Blocked means blocked" You can ignore people on the website for various reasons. I for example have 5 people on my ignore list. Have in mind, you cannot block Staff members obviously... believe me, I tried. You can block the following options of the person you want to ignore: Here is the suggestion: The person on my ignore list should not even have the option to tag me/quote me or contact me in any way. As of right now, you can still see the person you have on your ignore list, when he has posted something on the forum & you have the ability to decide if you want to see the post. Here is how it look as of right now. If I wanted to see the post, I would most likely not use the ignore function. Obviously, if someone decided to ignore a member of the community, there is a reason behind it and it is well thought through. So, if I decide to ignore someone, I dont want to read anything from that person. Is that possible/wanted. What are your thoughts about that? Edit: Tagging @Roland to know if that is even possible Edit 2: Obviously I have met people, which I ignore on the forum, ingame. I dont play myself IC therefore I approach everyone the same. If I dont like the RP of the person, knowing the person or not, I can leave the situation. And everyone should be able to seperate IC and OOC.

    You know who it is already, your not so friendly neighborhood game mechanic checking in. I added a new category to the gesture/emote wheel called "Sickness". You'll find the following emotes in that category: - Coughing - Sneezing - Shivering - Wiping sweat Here's a quick video to demonstrate once again. ~ With , Kerkkoh

    Agreed, I mean if people agree to do that type of thing in private - sure, but on the server in front of people of all ages and especially without any explicit consent from the other party in OOC it should be strictly disallowed.

    This is so ironic i can't even So because OOC hate is a problem.. you want to increase it by not being able to block people? Everyone can't be friends with everyone and at that point it is much better to just block someone, that is literally the point of blocking people and MORE people should use it.

    I would only say that if somebody has a problem with a character, child or not then write directly to the person who plays the character. Maybe you will be surprised about the reasoning behind it. Usually people has a lot of depth within a character and believe it or not, it actually takes time to understand some characters. If you dont want to take the time to get to know a character and is wondering about something then send them a msg.. Ez pz! Prepared for all the incoming dm's!

    What do you think a discussion is when it relates to a single topic exactly? It's literally what you've just warned for; A back and forth about the same thing. Which is what's happening..

    Old but gold - rip echo - very important these days. + I feel like these days we might need an additional guide ... thinking of a titles like: "Ron's guide on how to react in character when dominated by/ in conflict with another group" "Ron's guide on how to accept you've lost in character and how to go on role playing from there" "Imagine dealing with in character things, in character"
