@Brayces is pretty on the dot, things won't change, no matter how much you dislike hostile RP, it is needed to make the stories of DayZRP progress, the rules have been set in place so as to stop people from being shitty RP'ers and help develop the story, its a very fine line to get across but when done right it can bring joy to both parties. If not done right it should be reported and sorted there, not by ranting over a general discussion page.
DayZRP isn't going to have the kind, loving, hands linked ending you want it to have cause you don't want your gear to be taken, a lot of this ranting circles back to that and just that... Gear, yes its frustrating when you lose it to someone who didn't work to get it but you need to remember your playing a character react how the character would not how you as a player would. Hostile RP will always have its ups and downs but its part of the RP like it or not, it needs to be there otherwise its just nice people everywhere and who the fuck in the right mind wants to live without a little excitement?

Hostile RP is what makes the world go round, otherwise we'd all be stood with eachothers dicks in our hands singing be happy, there's a lot of things you can do to help move Hostile RP along, creating allies with other friendly groups is one, have a war start out, it leaves the ground work for stories to be filled, if you look at it from a gear standpoint yes its frustrating, but from an RP standpoint, you and/or your friends have just made an enemy/ally and from there a beautiful friendship/rivalry can begin. If something like a robbery happens you shouldn't look at it from the gear point of view.
I like the group shit, we need more groups ig, but as someone said the noose is getting tighter for hostile rp, think you've went a little too far banning hostile rp because of a characters reason. This is how a lot of rivalries start, it helps create tension between groups, starts conflict and alliances to be forged. This is how DayzRP used to be, I have a lot of fond memories thanks to DayzRP. As of late I've found the RP very stale compared to how it used to be, and I think these other changes will make a huge difference for the RP. But don't remove one of the core aspects to post-apocalypse survival... Bandits.
Food for Thought
Tom hears a slight cracking from his radio and a voice coming through slowly after it
He feels slight relief after the message comes through and presses the PTT button
"Cotton, nice to hear a voice for once that isn't groaning, I only moved inland a few days ago, i didn't find a radio until about a week ago, and batteries are even harder to come by. I was hoping to run into someone before I even got the chance to use this thing. I did however come across a nice man called Ling Long at the airfield, he has took me in but has told me he hasn't seen many people about recently either, I hope everything is ok with you"
Tom Stalls for a brief second before releasing the button.
Tom wakes from his uncomfortable but refreshing slumber
Staring out the window of the barracks
After clearing the airfield before dozing off he noticed more creeps gathering all over the place
"More creeps to kill"
As he picks up his rifle he thinks "There has to be more people out there"
He picks up his radio and switches to an open freqency
"Hello, My names Tom, I've been walking for days and only seen a handful of people... I'm starting to think that there's no-one left, if there's someone out there, who needs help, get me on this frequency... I'll be waiting... Hoping."
Tom pockets his radio, closes the door to his room, opens the window, and begins picking off the undead.
What's going on DayZRP, its been a while... 2 years? Well after taking my time out being a console scrub and pissing about in real life, you're not so friendly neighbourhood Irish Sniper is back with a brand new track!
All joking aside though I'm making my return to DayZRP, I was wondering how many of you have I already played with still playing after all this time? Is Chernarus the same as I left it? What are the new groups like? Is everyone having a good time? And Finally, What happened to BLACKWOOD!?
Tom finally finding an old radio, with haste he pushes his battery into the radio and speaks clear and slow.
"Is... Anyone out there, This is Tom Fyfe, I have been lost for too long, I need... I need someone to talk to, Im Losing my mind out here!"
Tom lets go of the button, eagerly awaiting a responce
