    oh

  1. Anti - telepathic communication rule

    I always said that this was bullshit. If a certain group of people hadn't of changed the definition of surrender and used the plain English definition it would never have been such a big issue (as was originally intended). I distinctly remember when I first saw this in a report I was totally outraged by it, but everyone else saw it as ok. It's a stupid thing to allow. Better late than never I guess. I still maintain that changed for the worse. Sure the original definition may not have been perfect, but in those circumstances it was a significant improvement. As soon as you "surrender", just stop talking. This doesn't mean wait until your radio is taken. There are other good suggestions in this thread, including in all hostile situations forcing a double mic. I am not saying the original intention was the best solution or the only one. More stating that the change in definition was poorly thought out as it went backwards. I get the annoyance here, but I also get the counterpoint. From my experience of group dynamics not everything stated is IC while playing the game. So much of this game can be done on autopilot that you don't even have to talk too much about it apart from some basics or when something interesting actually happens.

  2. TS and Voip - make it more fair?.

    It has the same problem as things like ACRE. It's inherently less fun. Let me explain, people when playing during lulls will not always talk about in game stuff. In my experience there is a great deal of "shit talk" going on with people just having fun. If people had to broadcast this as well they could easily get hit with Bad RP. Is it ideal that people use radio when they can RP in game? No. but it also happens for a reason. This reason is not always malicious or attempting to seek an advantage.

    You're right. But the problem in adittion to the actual source is fundamentalism. If you are a fundamentalist christian you are just as able to commit heinous acts. Luckily the western world went through a reformation that the other parts have not. We can only hope other parts of the world follow suit with rapid progress. In my view it's all wrong. But if you believe it without harming anyone. So be it.
  5. My heart goes out the the victims and their loved ones in the several terrorist incidents recently. I only hope that one day we can all come together and focus on our shared humanity, rather than the divisions of religion.

  6. New Lore = Re-Whitelist?

    As other's have said. A notice would suffice. Also as suggested change the PW to force people to check the PW and hopefully lore. Seems reasonable. Easily possible. Trust me on that one. You could easily do it.

      It was self defence. 

  8. Get's called a hypocrite because you know, simple minds. So apparently if you say x rules should be removed that means you can never advocate harsher punishments for others, smh. That's the logic climate change deniars use. It's snowing so it can't be x.

    Another example someone might want drugs legalized but terrorists executed.

    To be clear I recommend removing points for templates and minor breaches of radio chatter protocol. I called these more procedural rules at the time.

    I still stand by my comments regarding multiple rulebreaks.

    But even if it was a break from my history. Who cares, intelligent people when presented with facts change their minds to suit. One of the many problems in this community. Very few act like this. They are too dogmatic.

    I am no hero of the people. I have my own thoughts and couldn't give a flying fuck if you or anyone else appreciate them.

    1. Nihoolious

      Nihoolious

      Why do you feel the need to lock your status update? Do you not want to have discussion with your fellow community members?

    2. Mexi

      Mexi

      Getting boring now to be quite honest, your updates were hypocritical because of how much you really wanted to push more punishments onto anyone that stepped out of line. 

      You're not magically some sort of community hero for changing your mind.

    3. Caesar

      Caesar

      Mexi you obviously didn't read. I am no hero. Never claimed to be, nor do I care to be so. I have my opinions and they are far more consistent then you give me credit for. You seem to be struggling with nuance.

      I believe the following:

      1. We have rules that shouldn't be rules or should result in a hide only. I stated this in staff. So it is YOU that is incorrect. In fact me arguing as much as well as others got Rolle to agree with the current more lenient system. That is a fact of history.

      2. I do believe all in game rule breaks should be punished. I have suggested a model that found broad support. 75% or people wanted a harsher system. A small group of people and the majority of admins I guess disagree. So be it, that issue is void I guess.

      A punishment to fit the crime.

      3. A few in game rules should also be mended. I stated this in my first meeting with Rolle. I would like to find ways of opening up playstyles without allowing abuses of the system. Easier said than done but there are ways. Some of this can come through the lore wipe and some through revisions of rules. For example the settlement rules.

      Nihoolious, you are correct. The kind of people that would have posted and did previously barring a few are exactly the kind I don't care to talk to. They have to date said nothing to dissuade me.

      I had intended for that to be my closing .02.

      If they wish to reply. They can on their own profiles.

  10. As someone who only occasionally says shit here I can say emhpatically now that I am an outsider, that I was way to close to the issue before. I can see that I was all too eager to ignore the childish bullshit in this community, only paying attention to it when things got "toxic". It is obvious that I wanted this community to be better than what it can be. I expected to much, it is a gaming community filled with people who are in fact for the most part, acting their age. There is no hope for raising the level of maturity and reducing the bickering in this community, it is inherent. It always has been.

    Not that I am suggesting it change. It can't and probably shouldn't. It's just time that people stop pretending. Staff, lighten up a little on the points. This community is about fun. Some of the rules that are more procedural leading to points should go. The best we can hope for is people don't flame or disparage each other. On that front alone you have more than enough to keep you busy.

    As for the community. Stop the pissing contests. No one is impressed. Continue on with your silly shenanigans. That wont ever change.

      Slightly confused. You were the person that wanted to issue more points with your double dipping procedure?

      Attempted to bring double dipping into the reports, good lord. Not to be rude to you, at all Caesar.. But that second statement is hypocrisy at it's finest.

      Have a nice evening.

      Thank you Caesar for being able to take a step back and take a different look at things. While it may have taken a bit of time, at least you are able to and able to openly admit it, it's more than many people can say for themselves after all.

    5. Nihoolious

      Caesar, didn't we have an argument a week or so back where I said staff shouldn't be robots and you said staff need to be harsher?

      This strikes me as massive hypocrisy seeing as you advocated being strict and actively worked to start flame wars and get people banned. lol give me a break

      Caesar

      I said procedural rules. It's not hypocrisy it's a point of disagreement. To be honest I am over caring about the point either way. Do as you wish, it is clear no one in the current team knows what double dipping means. Or atleast not what it originally meant. Considering I was the person who first successfully advocated against true double dipping I would point out that my stance is in fact totally consistent. I understand people like to gloss over important defining words. But I did say "procedural rules". I don't count most if any in game rule breaks as procedural.

      But either way. Do as you wish. Give any amount of points you wish. I stated my opinion but simply don't care enough anymore to fight the issue. If you want to enforce an illogical and inherently contradictory system. Be my guest.

      Meme and unserious responses will be removed. Feel free to disagree with me.

    8. Mexi

      Mexi

      You pushed for this to turn into a court of law but now you've had enough of the points being given and all of a sudden you see this as a gaming community? Are you drunk?

    9. Caesar

      Caesar

      As a side note I was talking more about the forum side of things. I have specific IG rule enforcement disagreements inc the amount of points and settlement rules. But that is something which I am not specifically touching upon here.

      Caesar you use a lot of big words and make well thought out responses, but literally none of this matters if you flip flop on your opinions every other week. I'm not sure what you are trying to accomplish here with this rant but all it is doing is giving people a platform to call you out on. You are allowed to post your opinion, but at this point I'd just stop trying as it doesn't seem to be turning out well for you.

    12. Mexi

      Mexi

      tbh if you don't get in game your opinion should be void, but.. Yano, that's just me.

    13. Rabbit

      Rabbit

      People don't dislike you and this status because you're wrong about the rules, they dislike it/you because you were the biggest rules lawyer / most sensitive member of staff about rule breaks and now all of a sudden you're acting like a hero of the people defending them against unfair rules. (This is the definition of hypocrisy, in case you didn't understand the word) 

      You actively seemed to try and ban as many people as you possibly could seemingly because you didn't like them and now this? If you're not going to get in game just leave like me and the people you forced out?

      Is this a who we miss thread @Dew?

      I miss Castiel, Andrey, and Shadows... I wonder why they're gone?

      I bet they'd be active members of the community if they remembered they have DayZ installed!

    15. Dew

      Dew

      @Rabbit No, but Thumper had always used to ask staff to relax with the points ever since I could remember. 

    16. Caesar

      Caesar

      1. Disregard my opinion because I don't play? So be it. That is your choice. I don't plan to either. Can't really blame you for that.

      @Nihoolious. You will have to remind me of the context. I am specifically talking about procedural issues. Including things like templates and removing rules like necroing. Also NSFW as a rule should be looked at.

      I admit I have partook in this pissing contest. People are kidding themselves if they continue to deny the fact that their friends started it and it continued from there. I never said I have been 100% in the right. In my case bridges were burned with people mentioned previously. It's sad really. I originally wanted to work with them. But after being accused of doing it just for the badge + other thing I had no reason to hold back upon leaving staff. Although it's likely we both read a little too much into each other's comment. While a few were relates. Not all were. I can't remember a %.

      Look. I could still theoretically bury the hatchet. My opinions wont sway much but if certain people and their friends saw their way into civility as well I would ask for their reinstatement. Hell they could all become admins. Let them try their way for all I care.

      I had a certain vision. At least with "double dipping" I wasn't the only one. It was changed for the worse and more than a few agreed. I am glad I don't have to enforce a system that is too harsh is some circumstances but illogically lax in others.

    17. Caesar

      Caesar

      I suppose you could say. The punishment should fit the crime. For example 2 in game rule breaks are worse than one. So a harsher penalty make sense. We did a good thing with systemic cautions. But I would do away with punishments for templates entirely. Replace with hiding the posts, like we close non compliant appelas/reports. Emote only radio chatter should also be hidden and never warned. Overly hostile radio chatter responses shouldn't be a thing. But if so, hide them also. I have other thoughts that I could state but I gotta go.
