@JimRP You state you're only defending what is right, not your friends, yet all the comments I've ever seen posted by you lead people to believe otherwise. There is a large amount of this community that believes you are strong arming Roland with your financial position and that Roland won't disagree with you on large decisions for fear of you pulling funding from the server. I've listened to a large portion of the community state that the "RP boys" as they're being referred would have been banned long ago except for once again the belief Roland is being strong armed. Please understand this is not an attempt to slander you in any way, I'm merely stating the truth of what this community has begun to believe due to seeing you continually comment on situations involving select individuals within the community that are deemed to be your friends.
@Roland This is something you probably should address to help calm the community, as it is a widely thought issue at the moment. Apologies for bringing it to light, but I feel it needs to be so that the community can come together and continue what it's meant to be.
''the "RP boys" as they're being referred would have been banned long ago''
''involving select individuals within the community that are deemed to be your friends.''
@Malthis No, a multitude of people considered Jims ''friends'' have been banned: Dusty, Vytis, Boston, Henning, Lemon, need I go on? Those who have stayed and are friends don't receive any sort of special treatment. If @JimRP Was ''Strong arming'' Roland, then I don't believe any of the mentioned above would be banned. So your point is completely invalid.
@LouieRP and yet I'm having people tell me that they've even witnessed Roland state the exact thing I've said above in threads before; that people would have been banned if it wasn't for Jim. I know I've seen friends of yours be banned, but I think the talk is more about people believing that if you are a close friend of Jim's that he can keep you from being banned.
@BorisRP@Burps That's perfectly fine, I have no clue who those individuals even are. I'm merely stating the belief that is currently circulating within the community. People believe there are certain people that Jim can keep from getting banned, that's the only thing I'm saying here. I'm not trying to start any fights, I'm bringing to light something that is widely thought at the moment.
@Malthis ''People tell me'', ''People''. The fact you're being so vague shows there's no substance to your argument, The people I listed before we close friends of Jims, and they were banned. If you can find me one account of a report which is blatantly biased as you're saying, with somebody being protected then you'd have some sort of a leg to stand on.
@Burps There's a point of being vague about people because you have no facts to back up a claim, and there's a point of being vague for the sole fact of not wanting to betrays people's trust and calling them out. I didn't ask people's permission to bring up the subject at hand, therefore I'm not going to use their names in what I've said. That's the only reason I'm "vague" about people.
Look, I'm not going to debate what the truth of this matter is. That's not what the statement I made was ever about. I brought up the fact that there are people in this community who believe this, nothing more. I don''t know anything about who has or hasn't been banned, or what they have or haven't been banned over. I'm merely stating this is a widely believed thing to be occurring.
Y'all getting way too defensive about what Malthis brought up lmao. Even after stating he's only bring up a concern from community members, you're treating it like he's attacking him. Take a breather lmao
You can see where I'm coming from when I immediately get linked things like this. Apparently this is a conversation that happened between 2 people, one which is apparently banned now. I don't know who the 2 people are in this conversation, but it's just things like this that are circulating around the community.
I understand, however people who know the rules and are good RPers already know to not powergame others into rape RP.
People who do that kind of stuff are the ones who are ignorant of the existing rules. I doubt adding a new rule for people who are ignorant of the rules will have any effect. It will make things unambiguous, but that's about it.
I'm not against adding a rule against rape RP, I simply don't like adding new rules because something happens twice a year and can be easily solved with a existing power gaming rules or executive admin verdict.
But the guy with her or she would of known about the rape rp rule and would of done something about it and stopped it. I don't see how it's actually see why people would even want to do that in the first place
Technically the guy with her and she were just as ignorant of the power gaming rule as the guy, they had absolutely no idea even though it's spelled out right there in the rules that a consent is required.
I guess so man i just idk the whole idea of Rape RP just doesn't link with my brain and how some people would even want to participate or even get themselves in that situation , I get its an end of the world situation and things like that would occur but it just makes me very uncomfortable having people RP it out
@Roland Could there be added somekind of example list of hows and nots to the whitelist? Like, for example how to deny certain roleplay situations with //somethin something and ways to avoid powergaming?
Probably the most awkward situation i can think of in the server is run up to some guys raping other guy making all weird ass noices and so on, even if it was handled before hand OOC. i dont want to run into situation like that, and i dont think it should be allowed
If you limit any kind of roleplay, including RapeRP, you might as well limit other forms of RP. Such as SlaveryRP for example, as well as other forms of roleplay that may be considered "offensive" and "unsuitable to children".
If all parties consent to it OOCly, I don't see any problem with it. If this is truly about witnessing RapeRP, or those being tramatized by the acts, then leave the area and explore somewhere else, I mean jesus christ the map is fucking huge!
Question: Does this mean that if I'm unlucky enough and I get initiated on all 29 minutes by a different hostile group/person can be force to stay permanently on the server? ... (Unlikely to happen but in theory possible)
A sign you are too often here and speak with your english-speaking friends:
You are going to the hospital and after you wake up from being sedated you start to speak english to your doctor and nurse and you tell them about streaming, dayz and other stuff and half an hour later you can't remember shit and everyone is laughing.
YOU BETTER BE OKAY OR I WILL SHOW UP AND BEAT UP THE HOSPITAL. I HAVE A FLIGHT THAT LANDS IN FRANKFURT I AM NOT AFRAID TO WALK DOWN TO THE HOSPITAL AND BEAT UP SOME DOCTORS FOR NOT TAKING CARE OF YOU, LYCA!!!
I was working on my store and one of the guys I helped out get a car in Chernogrosk, shows up 2 months after I last see them. We greeted eachother, etc. He shows me his NVGs, and I was like "Ayy that cool, can I try it out?"... I couldn't figure out how to turn them on, so I typed OOC to ask for the button, that's when I was thinking in my head, "crap, my game is frozen now".... I Alt-F4ed my game...
From his perspective, probably looked like I asked for his NVGs and immediately logged out... It was a hilarious thought in my head. I logged back in and pretended like nothing happen. Tried them out and handed them back. I feel like he might of started panicking during the 2 minutes it took me to log back in.
