  1. Guillermo Alfonso Águila de Macay

    Guillermo was born in Mid-November. To a family that was neither rich nor arrogant. A simple family, just able to support what was needed. Growing up in the streets of Maracay Guillermo was not exposed to the level of violence and insurrection others of his age would have. From a young age he had a yearning to join the armed forces of his country. He also had a love of writing, reading, soccer, and vaqueros. His family had different views for him. He was not to be a soldier, but an educated man. University was the path set for him. In college his love of writing took the form of Journalism. Not always the safest job for a South American man, but Guillermo felt that the truth was a powerful thing. A weapon to be wielded. After college Guillermo decided to take his life on a path, one of travel and intrigue. He became a free-lance journalist. An roving investigator and reporter. Guillermo came to greatly enjoy the adrenaline of reporting on the more dangerous aspects of his career, civil disobedience, riots, demonstrations, even watch. During his time as a reporter he spent three months in Helmand Province covering ISAF training of the ANA. An experience he would keep as his most fulfilling. In March of 2017, Guillermo and his companion Jorge, who served as his cameraman and editor were contracted. Their job was to cover the growing tension in a small country that until recently was racked by civil war. It was only to be protests and demonstrations they were told. The money was good, and the job seemed easy. What could go wrong? With a full wallet and empty note-pad, Guillermo and Jorge set off for a small nation known as Chernarus.
  2. Trying to come home

    As the title suggests, saying what up to all you excellent people out there. While this is a not an actual introduction thread, it is a re-introduction thread. Some of you may remember me, but %99 of you will have no idea who I am. I am Doc Phlox, one-time staff member and a member here for over two years. I used to roll with the Post and loved every second of it. The last six or so months have been a whirlwind, with work, life, and the ever present curse of losing all interest in DayZ for extended periods of time. Anyway, I am trying to get back into this community that I love so much. And now that I possess an awesome gaming machine I will even try to play the game again. Well this is getting a bit wordy. Just wanted to let all those new and old know that old Phlox is coming back. Stay cheeeeelllll and see you out there
  3. Who Listens to Profiles Songs?

    I immediately pause them, without fail. I do not like them, they are usually loud, sudden, and music I don't listen to. Added to the fact I am almost always using headphones it makes for an unpleasant experience. But coming from a "free" country I like the fact that people have the option of posting one (after paying for it). It shows a great range of diversity in our membership which I also enjoy seeing. Is it for me, no. Do I think it's cool that we can do it, yes. But honestly, why not more jazz? Like some Ryu Fukui or Art Blakely? Just saying.
  4. Website Migration

    Not going to lie this new website is turning me off, everything about it is just not what I loved about the old site. Change can be good, like when you change a childs soiled diaper. But this change is making me want to stay away Can we bring back the old site please?
  5. Advise on a sensitive topic

    I always go with the words of House Tully "Family, Duty, Honor". Be with your son and your family, living at home just gives you another reason to be close to them. It may wound some people's pride to still be living at home at that age. But, those types of people probably have too much pride anyway. So remember the words of House Tully, my friend. Be with your family, these are your sons most formative years. Be a part of that, as often as you can. Just my advice, hope all goes well with you
  6. Get rid of "bambi"

    are you okay Right as rain, I posted on my phone which has a weird auto-correct fascination with this website and always changes things. Thought I edited it, turns out I didn't.
  7. Get rid of "bambi"

    Calling in Rolle to post his POV But yes, please be rid of this. Don't that movie, or the term
  8. I need advice

    Nothing like a classless dalliance to get a relationship started, right? OP, any updates? Stories of love make my hopes for humanity rise
  9. I need advice

    This^ Or, Say Anything..... her.........
  10. A Community Divided - Discussion

    I will admit that there is definitely a case that some people are treated more leniently than others. With regards to it though, whenever someone new comes to something, whether it be a job, social organization, whatever, they are treated with a little more leniency, kind of a "grace period" if you will, to get a handle on things. Yes, I know the argument that they just whitelisted and so the rules should be fresh in their minds. But experience is the best teacher, so a certain amount of time is needed to get it down. For experienced players, the rules are not fresh in there minds, they are almost reflexive, anyone here over 18 months should know better. In regards to the opinions of veterans not being taken seriously, correct if me if I am wrong, but when is any members suggestions going to be the end-all-be-all of the decision that a business owner has to make about their business? It may be taken into consideration, it may not be. As for staff bias, my stint in staff was very short, so if there is an Illuminati type conspiracy going on, I wasn't initiated , so therefore I can say nothing about it. But at the end of the day, does this really matter? And I am not saying this thread is not useful or you don't make valid points. I think that allowing for people to voice their opinions on topics they care about is great. But if you spend a good amount of time looking fir a conspiracy, you will always find one. Maybe this "inconsistency" isn't staff bias, but error on a website run by humans that donate their time to do this, if they aren't perfectly consistent, god forbid. Just my two cents though, love you all
  11. Heroine Child [W.I.P.]

    Drugs and children? I am already on board . Can't wait to see what is to come. *EDIT* Got posted as I was responding. This is so chilling, but I loved it. This is some serious writing. Well done, and I am now hungry for more
  12. Got a few congratulations to give out it seems . To Ramon, congratulations buddy! You definitely deserve this. Love watching your meteoric rise. Beni- Welcome, welcome! Do the Orange proud. But I have no doubts you will Clumsy- Welcome back, I believe? Either way, congratulations on Staff, I am sure you are going to do great.
  13. You should do whatever you (and your character) feel comfortable with. They (never know who they are though) say safety in numbers, but then again..... they also say that one man can go where ten can't. It is in the end, totally up to you. I wish you the best of luck in your choice, good sir
  14. Alt characters

    Have to agree that sounds rather vexing. I don't have many alts, but whenever I switched to one I made sure he was a new model (my main and alts are not even the same skin, so I have to die for a new one). Hopefully an easier system will come along, one that allows you to easily access items so you can change your appearance to an extent that isn't new shoes or balaclava
  15. A good backstory

    Gotta love this kind of stuff, always reaffirms my belief in humanity's creativity
