    Time to comply

    I'm still not wrong, you touched on part of it with your post right after. "Apocalypse" or not there are still rules to follow. If it were a real apocalypse who knows, maybe I'd be right there beside you raping and pillaging like a Hun. But alas, it's a game, and there are rules to play by. There's way more to what I said.

    Time to comply

    The biggest mistake people make in giving people time to comply, especially when reviewing footage, is in the delivery of the demands themselves.Here's a pretty basic initiation that'll do for this. "Put your hands up right now! If you turn around I swear to God I'll fucking kill you!" An initiation like that will take about 2 seconds to get out fully, maybe longer with the VOIP delay. The time to comply does not start at the beginning when you drop the first word, that's fucking impossible to know exactly what someone's demand is going to be at that point, you have to start it decently past the last word. I don't have a ton of time to write something up here as I'm about to head off to work, but there are ways you can help ensure you don't get shot when complying. I usually like to respond in VOIP right away, letting the initiator know I've at least heard what they've said, but that's me and I find it helps a lot. Now, the onus has never been on the person being initiated on to let them know the initiation was heard. WTF are you going to do when you initiate on a panicked text RPer who could take up to 10 seconds to write back something to you? You're the initiator, the onus is on you to ensure you've given enough time. Putting a number on what "enough time" actually is, that doesn't matter because it varies on the situation, but you need to make sure you have the right to shoot someone based on ALL the rules, including if it's something you even should do, because dead players can't help further the roleplay. Try not to ignore what I've written here and go back to arguing this whole 10 second thing, because it's a useless argument. I'm right, happy Friday.

    Amnesty Grace

    You don't negotiate a contract after both parties have already signed it. There's a large portion of the community that doesn't want to see any of them come back, you fucked up enough already before to have been gone, why should you come back sort of deal. Now I personally don't give a shit, this isn't my sand box and I'm apathetic to it all cause I really don't have the time to waste worrying about people I haven't talked to in that amount of time, but maybe those should just be happy enough they are back at all? And maybe write up an apology to those people you talked shit about on the way out? My inbox is open for apologies 24/7.

    Teamspeak: "the heart of he community"

    There has been some changes to that bot I set up. I set it up in another Discord and noticed them then, it might make it a bit easier. If you guys need a hand with it, let me know.

    Fully automatic weapons should be less common

    Like I said in regards to cans of food becoming more and more scarce as we progress away from the date of infection, so should good usable automatic weapons. Would be cool if we could eventually get it to a point where you could find a damaged AK or M4, strip it for parts, and use other good parts to assemble a good, working automatic. Make that shit worth it.

    Teamspeak: "the heart of he community"

    I just like the pricetag of it better really, but there are some sweet functions it has that TS just doesn't. If the V=voice quality was just a bit better and more consistent, it would be unbelievable.

    Teamspeak: "the heart of he community"

    It's a good thing someone did all that for you already

    Teamspeak: "the heart of he community"

    Just let it die. The only benefit to TS is if TFR ever gets modded in, that's it. Other than that, let it die.

    Teamspeak tagsss

    If it's the audio quality you have an issue with, you can actually bump that up. Discord just doesn't recommend it because mobile users will pretty much be destroyed when using it. But, it can be done.

    DayZRP Standalone v1

    I was really hoping DayZ wasn't going to turn into FiveM and every site/server/community was going to have it's own launcher...

    Introduction of a minimum Age requirement of 16/18+

    Wasn't me. I've personally always been a fan of the age for here being set to the age you should be for buying the game, but in most countries that's 17 or 18. I learned to live with it being 16. I personally make sexual innuendos in RP all the time, hell I'm playing a male escort right now, and I don't think I could scrub off that kind of icky-ness I'd feel saying that kind of shit to someone too young. Please don't send Oliv to jail.

    This is odd

    I just honestly don't care. I've checked my bank balance, my fucks are in overdraft. I didn't even know this shit was going on until someone told me on my stream

    I think he was referencing the time before 2016. This is the 3rd or 4th time Psi has been back, we'll see if it results in another influx

    Whose roleplay did you enjoy today?

    Shout out to the strangers over the radio tonight and all the people in Vybor that had no idea I was watching them, trying to figure out if they could be trusted. I didn't approach, but thanks for the roleplay you didn't even know was happening.

    Dumb Question

    Did you do the opt in for experimental on Steam yet? If you're still on stable that's .62, Nd honestly, who even plays that?
  22. Oliv

    This is odd

    It's always been different for staff, no one has ever had an issue with staff reporting things like that even if not involved mainly because we had the tools to do so and others did not. It never happened that often, but when it did, the situations were usually pretty bad.

    I always said when I was in the position, I'll always listen to an appeal, no matter what. That's all this is, listening to appeals, being a bit more open minded about them rather than a straight up "no". I always tried to listen, except for that guy who made a post about me on reddit, I got tired of listening to him.

    In game Premium poll

    the only thing I like out of this is the clan jacket. Making clan skins something payable isn't terrible as long as it's not utilized for anything in the rules for groups.
