  1. Hello everyone! To start off with a stat that we are all very excited about, we hit 1000 players actively on the server at the same time in April. The rate we are growing at is something we are very proud of, and want to thank all of you for contributing toward! We hope to continue growing and providing more awesome content and features for you all to enjoy! In April GTA:W received some awesome new features, one that has been long requested being Hunting! To accompany this roleplay shift toward the dangerous mountains and county area of the map, a new LEO faction has also been introduced to protect and monitor that area. The Park Rangers are now in full swing! So don't be surprised if you notice them patrolling around the mountains! Be sure if you're a hunter you have you license on hand in case you bump into them! The Park Rangers are solely based on the niche areas of Mount Chilliad, Mount Gordo and leaking into the sandy shores area for now, but have the potential to expand as more national parks are declared across the map. If this is an area of roleplay that interests you, be sure to keep an eye out as they will be opening recruitment within the coming weeks! On the admin side of things, as we continue to grow as a team, and implement new practices and expectations we hope to continue narrowing down the wait time for reports both in-game and on the forums. As this is a goal of ours, wait times are sometimes unavoidable given the peak time has us pushing up to a thousand players with only 51 admins in total, and an average of around 10 admins online at once. As you can imagine 10 admins for 1000 players is a lot of people to be helping, so if you are required to wait on a report, just remember that we are working our hardest, and we truly appreciate your patience! Unfortunately @FearnR will be stepping down from Management and resigning from the staff team entirely. With FearnR's resignation we do not anticipate any hiccups or issues with this transition. We expect things to continue running smooth with @Pillsburyoverseeing all admin related matters and @Groz overseeing all support related matters. "With my resignation I wanted to give a farewell to everyone in the community. Unfortunately all good things must come to an end, but I have truly enjoyed my time in this community, and appreciate the positive interactions I have had with many of you. This is a fantastic community, and I truly appreciate the time I spent here, and the people I have met over the 3 years I have been in this community.

If you have any issues with receiving your denial or reserved feedback be sure to reach out to [email protected] and @Jonesy so they can help you out! As there is often a large influx of denial requests Please allow us 48 hours to update the status of your application, once your application has been updated with (Denied/Reserved) you may then request the decision reasoning. Once requested please give us 72 hours to respond to any denial reason requests. All reserved applicants will be automatically responded to with our expectations for your reserved month, there is no need to request a response on applications marked "Reserved". Any denied applicants this month may not reapply until the staff applications open again in July for August 2021's staff update.
  2. Hello everyone! We would like to kick off this staff update with a special thanks to all of you for your activity in game this month! We are super excited to have hit 833 players online at one time this month! This is a record high for GTAW in the 3 and a half years we've been active as a server! We are so pleased with the recent growth of our server, and our increasing community size. We were also very exited to test out the new staff application system on the UCP this month and found that it went much smoother than previous months. We are very pleased with the outcome and thank everyone who applied this month, if you applied and found any bugs or issues please be sure to notify @Groz of anything. We would like to give @Everett a special thanks for setting up the UCP staff application system, and recognize the many hours he put into designing and implementing it. We're delighted with the engagement of the second election in the server! This election was the first to be contested for the State Senate since the switch four months ago, and both parties ran a terrific campaign - as announced by LSNN both split the senate 5-5 with over 850 votes cast. Legal FM will be looking at ways to give more freedom to the state senate this session and introduce new and fun ways to have politics play more of a role in our server, so now is the best time to get writing to your representatives to push for the policy you want to see! It's also finally time for 1.1 deployment : we've successfully deployed the update on live server after months of testing and working with Rage to fix it. The transition was really smooth and we are still waiting for our first server crash! Some amazing scripts are coming soon thanks to it : Pool games, new clothes, hunting, graffiti and way more! We can't wait to explore all the development possibilities that 1.1 opened for us. We thank you again for your dedication, and aim to continuously improve the server experience for all of you!

If you were a staff applicant and were not given support you can check your application to see if it was marked as denied or reserved. If you have been denied or reserved you will need to request your denial reason through the forums and title the forum PM Denial/Reserved Reason Request and send it to Groz and Odin. As there is often a large influx of denial requests Please allow us 48 hours to update the status of your application, once your application has been updated with (Denied/Reserved) you may then request the decision reasoning.

  3. I will be opening this thread back up after talking with the thread creator, for all comments going forward I want to lay the following ground rules and considerations to ensure this still productive and respectful. This suggestion and comments should be designed around solutions to the limiting opportunities for illegal roleplayers and the lack of allowance for "My character isn't that bright" excuses. We understand that illegal roleplayers are limited and have to operate as intelligent IC as being a "Dumb character that doesn't realize the repercussions" is often seen as a rule breach. Considerations Please be mindful of the followings which I hope will help explain why this area of roleplay is so limiting and strict currently: (1) We don't want to be a "cops and robbers server" meaning that allowing players to shoot / rob / assault other characters where ever, when ever, or for whatever reason and being able to always chalk it up to "My character isn't bright so that's why he didn't think about the repercussions" often results in the deterioration of the roleplay quality on our server. When people can claim "It's IC" on everything suddenly roleplay becomes more and more poor from what we have noticed in the past. (2) We are so strict about CCTV because it's such a difficult area to roleplay. If your character wants to rob / kill someone right in front of a camera it's easy to say "It's IC, just let the detectives take the easy win by having me on camera, it was the fault of my character for doing it on camera". However, working around CCTV roleplay is never easy. For those of you who don't know, here is the process. Step 1: Recognize there is a CCTV present that could have captured something. Step 2: LEO roleplay around pulling the CCTV and reviewing the footage. Step 3: OOCly trying to figure out who the suspect is, or having to get an admin involved to figure out who the suspect was OOC. Step 4: OOCly reaching out to the suspect to ask what the camera would have picked up (Time and time again we find players lying about what would be seen to reduce the chances of being caught). Step 5: Roleplay what the suspect informed the LEO RPer of and go from there based on words alone and not actually being able to review any images. Sometimes when they're lucky someone has shadowplay, but then again have to attempt to triangulate how that would look from the camera. So as you all participate in this suggestion I do hope to find a way to adjust our rules or the way this area of RP is enforced by server staff to be more accommodating to all types of roleplay. I ask however that if you are to participate you read my considerations and recognize how it works on the other side as well, and that the complexity of the situation is usually what results in it being disallowed completely.
  4. Hello everyone! Welcome back to another staff update! This has been a shorter month but just as busy as we've been working hard to improve the community for everyone! This month we want to give a big shout out to our development and modding team as they've been working really hard to bring new content updates out for us to have more awesome scripts and features on our server! With our goal of community enhancement this month, we've also been working really hard with our Forum Moderation team to give some extra attention to our forums. We have already put systems in place to standardize, clean up and organize guides so they'll become a lot easier to look up and understand for new and existing players. If you have created a guide or want to create a guide in the future stay tuned for our new instructions on how guides will be operating soon. We have also put in place a new system to efficiently and effectively forward all community suggestions for monthly reviews and implementations, ensuring that all of your great ideas are being heard and implemented into our server. We recognize that one of the largest concerns our community has is wait times for in-game and forum reports / requests. As this is an improvement we aim for every single month, we have been able to put some policies in place this month to hopefully help cut that wait time. Our forum moderation team has done a fantastic job cleaning up a lot of our forums this month and significantly bringing down reports and requests on the forums, and they will continue to grow and further bring down wait times. With our staff team growing in size every month, we also hope that more available admins will lead to lower in game wait times for reports, and will continue monitoring and working toward the reduction of wait times. As a final note, to end this month we also have to unfortunately say goodbye to our dear friend @Bombie. With real life responsibilities ramping up, he'll need to be stepping away from GTA:W for sometime and is passing the torch onto @[email protected] If you need anything PM related please reach out to those two instead of Bombie as he'll be shifting his work toward them over the next little bit before he's gone. We would like to thank him for all the hard work he's put into Property Management, and wish him the best of luck going forward.

  5. Hello everyone! Welcome back to another Staff Update. We are very excited with the way 2021 kicked off, and would like to thank you all for your dedication to our server. This month we were able to break our current peak record by reaching 700 players online at once! We really would not be where we are without you all, and owe it to you for making this server successful. This is a very exciting month for sub-team leadership, as you can see in the promotions we have brought on several new level 3 admins who have filled in multiple lead positions. We are looking forward to the increase in sub-team quality and innovation with these dedicated roles being filled. With that being said we do have some big announcements regarding some of our sub-teams. As promised on the last staff update, the forum moderation team has been built and is fully operational with @kilerbite leading it and @effion assisting. As the team builds traction we hope this results in the reduction of wait times for forum requests, appeals and reports, and provides more attention to all areas of the forums. New processes are also being put in place to increase the efficiency of suggestion forwarding, to ensure we are hearing all of your suggestions and implementing them. We will also be re-introducing RPQM with a few tweaks, and a new sub-team leader @nateX! Keep your eye's out for more updates regarding Roleplay Quality Management's return, and what they will be focusing on. As you know we as a server aim to enforce a high level of roleplay quality, but we also appreciate that our community members have varying experience. We aim to put more measures in place to assist those who are more inexperienced to ensure all members are able to roleplay at a strong standard. Lastly, Staff Management has finally filled in all of it's vacant positions with @Fenrir becoming the new Head of Admins, @Pillsbury becoming the new Assistant Head of Admins, and @Odin becoming the new Assistant Head of Support. Keep an eye out for changes in the formatting when it comes to various topics regarding staff and support, this includes who to tag on support apps, who to send staff reports to, and more. We thank you again for your dedication, and aim to continuously improve the server experience for all of you!

  11. Thanks ? You're too nice to me
  12. I support this suggestion and also support a short timer. In the instance that someone is evading police and crash, police are able to tell the suspect crashed by being able to see the vehicle stationary and not just assume the suspect eluded them. If the suspect gets out of sight of PD and crashes the police might just assume they got away without realizing it was merely a game crash. Especially if the suspect / cop doesn’t know each others names OOCly, a crash with instant despawn could cost the whole pursuit. It could also be abused as players could alt F4 in their vehicle to crash their game and instant despawn their vehicle when running from police.
  13. Looks awesome everyone! Keep up the great work!

    Being archived due to request from the creator, as this forum is stirring up conflict.
  15. This is definitely an area of RP that gets a little tricky for a lot of players. As it's very difficult to make your character look underaged and that physical perception can be hard for players to get past. It's also so uncommon that people roleplay minors that many RPers may not be used to it and don't know how to act in those scenarios. We'll certainly try to be more considerate with minors, as they're still in a shapable phase and shouldn't be treated as harshly as adults. There is definitely a lot of room for improvement when roleplaying with youth, and even developing mentorship between LSPD and community youth. Thank you for bringing this up, and we'll try to reinforce the idea within the faction that there are youth characters and that it is a different dynamic when interacting with them.
