    Lore reset?

    NPCs would actually be cool

    Lore reset?

    This infection wouldn't have happened if Clinton was President :p. Or a Trump cult with the interest of building a wall around Chernarus to keep the foreign scum and the infected out . Oh gosh...Why has the lore not been wiped yet A lore wipe is appreciated - though it needs to be managed right . The issue that people seem to have though is how do you keep the usual robbery/campfire RP DayZRP culture at bay to be able to do unique ideas? PS: I voted yes, and fully support a lore wipe .

    Rule Clarifications??

    Honestly - Perma bans should be for absolute serious things. It should be unless its mass KOS or Mass Rdm or troll rp or harassment or something, otherise I think like a 3 month or 6 month or 1 year ban would have been satisfactory. I don't see what the benefit is with pema banning people and than unbanning them - it makes the term Perma Ban not permanent. Jimmy shouldn't be perma banned for RDM x2 but whatever.

    Farewell amigos.

    Honestly, Hope that Trump gets that wall up sooner than later. Nah tbh, you'll still be playing CoD with us so you ain't going no where. But I know you got busy weeks, so have a good one , you are the Rper of the Year, Nuff said. Brb gonna go eat Harry Potter from all 7 books.

    Staff Purge?

    Agreed - the issue is though; how do you monitor who's going IG and actually playing? How do you determine when someone launches the game and leaves it on or enters the servers and just AFKs? Just something I always thought of when the opinion was brought up. Are there tools to actually monitor it?

    Will We Bounce Back?

    Once the game gets base building and other features - RP will take off again: once there is more to do than rob/sit at a campfire. Hopefully it comes sooner than later.

    Will We Bounce Back?

    The reason for this is simple. DayZ is a buggy game built with the sole purpose of PVP. Simply that's it - the limitations of the game and the community are the reason people prioritize PVP > RP (And recently I'll probably have to include myself in the above example). The game itself is a survival game with little to no elements of survival, a zombie game with no threat from zombies, and a community & game built upon a military simulator. I can imagine for most people - there really is nothing to do in game except to kill one another. What's the point of engaging war where neither side OOC admits defeat nor has any repercussions? What's the point of creating a "safe haven" which literally possesses nothing else to make it safe other than your word? There is no base building, barricading, defending or anything like that - so there is no way to actually have a safezone except for having numbers & people who are ready to firefight hence leading back to the root cause. DayZRP is a blanket statement roleplaying community (and the only reliable roleplaying community for that matter) so you have various people with different strengths, and waving interest for roleplay. People who's idea of roleplay is DROP YOUR GUN CUMRADE - DAH - I BADASS FUCK, to people who are interested in portraying a second life of themselves in this whimsical world. Hence why the titles of "Bandits", "Campfire Rpers", "Gear Rpers", are inadequate. It's people who all have varying interests in roleplay or different ideas playing within the same bubble. That's literally the long & short of every discussion I think comes up on the forums. Add this all into OOC, People being the main character and deciding what they feel is adequate, the rules, drama/gossip and staff; and your left with endless debates on forums, OOC salty reports from both sides, Pointing Fingers, and Popcorn munching drama. We can all add Gifs, +1 or -1, but the heart of the issue is the game, the numerous amounts of people with different ideals, a sole community to take all these people, a staff with their own sets of biases and opinions of a vague ruleset, and a hefty amount of salt mines & OOC hate. My usual response to most discussions like this - DayZRP will not die , but the game will probably be stale until the game gets actual content or something fresh that makes people want to get IG. The game itself is so meh that no one can really do anything but stir the pot while we wait for Bohemia to be relevant. Summer may peak, but winters are like this usually anyways. But DayZRP will bounce back but really atm - it's up to the actual Devs to make their game relevant. DayZRP has little control over this besides a lore reset and getting heavy advertising. There just needs to be more in game than to wander and rob and PVP. Tldr: DayZRP won't die unless Rolle forgets to pay taxes ;). The community will bounce once the game bounces.

    Public Staff Applications

    Keemstar please - There's no reason for this other than stirring the pot - As other posts have said, just relax man . There are some things that require visibility and a public process; this isn't one of them. Imagine posting your resume publicly for the world. It doesn't matter what the community's response to some staff apps; the only ones who need to see it are Admins. However - if someone wants to post like a sample app with tips and the like (which I really don't think is necessary but anyways...) to assist people in how to fill out a document - than by all means.

    DayZRP Con.

    There would be an interesting news report the following day - "4 men stabbed/shot at video game convention" When asked why - the response would be that they are bandit/campfire scum. *Shudders*

    Staff Purge?

    Was about to post something similar to this - there is only so many ways a situation can be played out; I feel that the "case by case basis" seems like a go to answer rather than instead of providing a straight answer.

    'Sleeping' in a settlement.

    There is no situation where ghosting in is a-okay. It's the slippery slope. The only time I'd say it is okay is the same when it is okay for combat logging (asking for permission from the opposing side.) The constant argument of Realism vs Ruleplay and I'd say for the most part; 99.9% of the time you're ghosting in; you are doing it to get dank PVP and providing fire. If this was allowed we'd see a lot more invisible men who "are sleeping" to come to PVP when you are sure the compound is clear. No thanks. I hope this helps at all

    So about "Famous" Character names

    There is a difference with taking inspiration from something, adding your own twist and with playing an "insane psychopath" - Sorry from what it sounds like I wouldn't find your character realistic. What sort of symptoms of insanity must your character have to believe they are King Arthur? Might as well be "insane" to RP as a man who's space shuttle crashed from Mars.

    Does your RP effect your personality IRL?

    When you create a character, you give them a bit of your personality (subconsciously you do this). So there should be at least a minor aspect of your character that resembles you. But you shouldn't be getting influenced by IC. In dramatic sessions, I've needed to take a step back but it doesn't affect my personality on the day to day.

    "THAT" type of role-play

    Is or should threatening to rape someone repetitively or in detail against the rules?

    A threat is just that - a threat. Unless it is absolutely vulgar or unnecessary: I highly doubt you are going to get someone banned for threatening an act of rape. So good luck with that. You can have whatever tolerance you want; but please don't let your own safe space mentality in a zombie apocalyptic world of murder, cannibalism try to now enforce other's RP. We are trying to invoke realism in an environment with OOC boundaries. If you aren't engaged in the RP and it bothers you, than just walk away.

    Is or should threatening to rape someone repetitively or in detail against the rules?

    Hello - It is is I Bizbok. I approached staff before hand and made very certain on my rights and limitations - what could/couldn't be done. The person who's permission I had was also in there communicating on comfort levels. I asked if choking a woman and pressing her against the wall, or fondling and the like - various people have limitations. Overall though - I was told to make sure the other party was fine with all actions and I would ask OOC permission before doing stuff. I was told that the moment you go below the belt - it should fade to black but other than that as long as it was kept "PG 13" it was alright. But the threat of it I never had issues with, Just saying it should be up to the RPers to decide what they feel comfortable with (also being a good distance away from major hotspots helps as well). The threat of it is just that - a threat. I will continue to use it as a threat if the situation deems it - it's the receiving parties duty to notify the aggressor if they aren't comfortable with it.

    Luna man , We get your triggered by Rape, no one is saying Raping someone IG or IRL is okay. But you can't start punishing people for threatening without acting. I RP'd a rapist, probably one of my most memorable characters, didn't get reported and made sure staff was always in the loop. Only reason I did it was to see how such a monster could be. Some of the best comedians have made jokes about rape. It's a horrible thing and some people deal with it through humor.
