  1. Report everyone, even yourself. You better be roleplaying breathing and emoting each step you take.
  2. It's contextual. Most of the time detail and description helps to further create a better roleplay environment, other times paragraphs of text for a simple action can detract from it. Ideally you want to hit a sweet somewhere in the middle.
  3. Farewell @Notbond and thanks for everything! Congratulations to @Shanks and everyone else!
  4. 'Scratchpads' as we call them in the team, are quite literally just notes on a player. They help us gauge whether a player could pose a threat to break a rule or if they have been verbally warned not to break rule before. They are there for the sole purpose of making our jobs easier, they don't act as a physical punishment on your record and in almost every case we're not going to punish off them but rather reference them in a punishment, "You've been verbally warned about this already" ect. We also use them for a number of other admin related purposes like tracking potential ban evaders, hence why they are private. We're not gonna put a public entry on your record saying 'suspected ban evader, watch closely' as thats incredibly dumb and defeats the purpose entirely. We're not going to put things like 'bad rper' or 'weirdo' as that can be attributed to opinion. Scratchpads are only to help us gauge potential problems for the server and to make admins lives easier, they don't need to be public and won't be public as doing so would only be a hinderance to the team, not a positive. Rulebreakers would know they are being watched, banevaders would know admins are onto them and the list goes on. Also... GDPR requesting over a scratchpad entry... really...? You know we spectate players when we have reports about them too right? Or am I breaking new ground?
  5. I'll add a line into the rules to clarify. Report any weirdos you see trying to argue against it.
  6. You can literally already appeal it. We've expunged prior admins punishments before, especially in the case of minor punishments given by retired admins long ago. Punishments serve as a way for admins to gauge improvement, view prior instances of the same behaviour and to make logical punishment assessments based on previous administrative history. Things like warnings, admin jails, temp bans, perm bans should remain on record regardless of any length of time for that reason. If you wish to appeal things like AFK kicks or very minor things that have happened long ago that aren't really of any consequence now, see the information below.
  7. Once again, if you feel a robbery is unrealistic and poorly portrayed, you are free to report and it'll be handled. On the flip side of that argument I've seen many robberies that have been roleplayed properly and successfully day after day. The same premise goes with bad staff decisions, we have staff reports for a reason if you disagree with a decision that's being made. This has been how we've viewed robberies for quite some time because as Bospy said, to do otherwise would be a crux to both illegal and legal roleplayers. This is a continuity questions and answers thread. Your best avenue for questioning regarding your forwarded proposal for lengthened prison sentences relating to violent crimes would be to go through LFM. Continuity has no real bearing in regards to that. I do agree it's important to achieve a balance of realism while remaining fair to both sides. The problem with that is one side will always view it as unfair. If we add systems to balance things out for the legal side, the illegal side will complain about perceived biases (which has happened) and vice-versa. You can never make anyone truly completely happy. We're constantly adjusting things to remain as fair as possible to both sides without sacrificing too much in the way of realism. Serious crimes of course warrant serious offences, but it then becomes a discussion of what is fair and not fair to those on the illegal spectrum of the field who will most likely share distaste and backlash. It's a balancing act, we're consistently working to keep things as fair as possible while sticking to our values of realism. Let's keep it to questions regarding server continuity now, please. Any further questions please reach out.
  8. To answer your original question @orca112, the latter half will need to be discussed by continuty and an official statement given at a later date. But you should refrain from driving through/breaking into Government facilities, even if abandoned. They fall under the safe zone premise so you should assume they are guarded or watched.
  9. Civilian roleplay will subsist just fine. It's never been limited before by this and we've had these rules in place for a very long time, since before you recently joined our server in January. Please dissuade yourself from your obvious bias and try to see the situation from a wider perspective and not just from warped tunnel vision. Crimes happen every single day, the time of day really has no bearing on it. You don't get to pick and choose when a situation like this can happen to you, just as you don't in real life. Robbery at its core is causality, timing and opportunity. You're grasping at straws and stretching things out to extremes to try and make it sound like an apocalyptic scenario that will burn the server down. These rules do nothing but promote and encourage roleplay and realism. If you feel someone is not robbing you in a realistic manner, you can report it. If a rule is broken during a robbery? You can do the same. These are only guidelines, they are in place to promote roleplay, which is what we're all here to do. Our "cops and robbers server 👏👏👏" will be fine with these rules as it always has been. Relax.
  10. If you took the time to read through Bospy's previous clarification on the issue, you'd understand why our stance on this is as it is. Changing these rules would fundamentally lower the roleplay opportunities for the criminal side of the spectrum and in turn, would create less compelling roleplay for both sides. Please re-read through Bospy's response as I feel like at this point I am simply re-iterating what he's already said in great detail. If you feel it is one-sided that criminals are able to rob people in public or in day time using proper discretion, but you cannot go into a military base, I don't know what to tell you.
