If we could stop using the excuse "You're just reporting for retaliation for what I did", that would be great. Maybe you're just being reported because you broke the rules and yer RP was shit. When people use this excuse for why someone is reporting them it waters it down to the point others don't believe it when it actually happens.
@Fenrir Ain't even mad though, it's pretty sad how it's become though. Rolle goes on vacation and then the staff team goes ham and begins issuing points for petty shit? I realize that making "non contributing posts" is a 'rule break' now, but that's a fuckin stupid rule, come on mate. This use to be a something that use to issue warning points for if you were flaming with gifs or just making posts over and over that weren't needed.
I've heard some recent horror stories from people that have seen what goes on behind the scenes and it's pretty sad. I've been here since the beginning of 2015, we use to be able to have fun on the forums and be friends but now it's just a joke.
I agree completely. Non contributing posts is almost purely subjective. Like in my case, My recent follow up post in Staff feedback getting points hours after me posting it, was IMO only issued due to Salt resulting from my original post regarding RedSky's report and also due to the fact I didn't go down with RedSky and the bois in that report. Otherwise why did it take hours to issue? And why was it issued not long after the Verdict of said report.
Not to worry though, got an appeal up and I'm keeping my eye on the ones responsible for this bullshit ;)
For me though I've been here for around a year and I've been active for around half a year now. So i tend to hold back when it comes to criticizing anything. But whats happened to us recently is straight up insulting. To the point I have to say something, which then gets me points because humans cant take criticism and get salty.
@Fenrir I don't know anymore man, I wanted to be staff so I could help the community and be a bigger part of it, but now I don't even want to think about it. Half the time it looks like they don't even know what they're doing or what they're suppose to be doing and the other half they're running the place like a military POW camp. At first I was in agreement with a lot of these new rules but now they're talking about adding more and more. Don't smile or have, you'll be lined against the wall and a firing squad will be used.
It is a sad day in this community's history when it has come to the point that some people enjoy ruining others experiences and role-play. Good luck to the members of GMTC, unfortunately some people just enjoy the PVP aspect of this community, instead of the RP.
There are many ways to hostile RP besides shooting or telling someone to drop their shit and leave, I enjoy both sides of the spectrum, firefights are enjoyable, being a bandit is enjoyable, but I also enjoy internal RP. I think you should find a median as that's the most enjoyable, at least in my opinion.
Not sure to take you seriously when you wouldn't even know how far the standard has declined, considering you've only been here for about four months. There are a lot of us that have been here for 2+ years and aren't happy with the quality. I'm not expecting 10/10 RP from new members, but I am expecting them to treat the server differently, not just a "No KOS" server. Nice try at the jab though.
It's a real shame how the quality of RP has dropped since I first white-listed in 2015. You use to want to run into hostile groups just for the experience, now you want to run and log off because of how terrible the RP is. How I miss the days of groups like Reapers V.1, Blackwood Militia V.1, The Family, Pinewood, The Hanged Men, Jackals.. My morale is at an all time low for this community now..
