  1. Ok but I don't want to. And what a pain in the ass, what if you want multiple people to have access to an account? What if you're transferring leadership?
  2. what about the fuckin uhhh accounts for businesses? or accounts for LEO factions? Or whatever it may be? what if someone just doesn''t want their account associated with their characters? i think this just comes down to making admins enforce the forum rules, as opposed to making wack rules!
  3. let me finish your sentence for you the amount of drugs being smuggled into ttcf via ingestion is significantly lower than the amount of drugs that are smuggled into prisons in real life
  4. No. In fact, I hold the opposite opinion. Threads should be less restricted. Let people hash things out. Change is uncomfortable. Progress is uncomfortable. If the discussions you're having about the server aren't upsetting people, they're bad discussions. Enforce the rules; prevent blatant flaming, but other than that, let people bicker.
  5. This is a server side issue and it needs to be forwarded to the dev team.
  6. This is an issue with GTA World, as far as I can tell. There's been tons of reports of this happening since the new update and from what I can see, players are only having trouble connecting specifically to GTAW. The Dev team needs to investigate what files in client_resources might be causing this. My guess is that some of them are incompatible with a handful of systems for whatever reason, or are otherwise prone to corruption.
  7. I disagree. I hold the opinion that self-inserts are a crime, but they're a victimless crime. Yes, self-insert characters are universally the hallmark of uncreative, unskilled, and frankly uninteresting roleplayers, and can easily be weeded out from your personal or faction's circle. That being said, they don't really harm anyone. They don't, except in extreme cases where emotional attachment to your character overrides fairness or logic (which is a problem that exceeds just self-inserts) make anybody's experience worse. It just seems like a really weird place to draw the line, especially when enforcing it to any effective degree would basically cut the playerbase in half. Because let's face it: most of the GTA World community aren't serious roleplayers. They come from Second Life or Habbo or Roblox or wherever looking to have avatars instead of characters, and they go to clubs and drive fancy cars and spam sidejobs. And you know what? As long as they're not bugging me? That's okay. I'll make fun of them, I'll look down on them, I won't let them in my faction (unless they wise up), but hey...like I said, bars need to be filled, dance floors need to be crowded, pizza needs to be bought; and for that, they'll do just fine.

  8. Username: BigPaulie42 Comment: YOU PIECE OF SHIT I'LL KILL YOU. I WAS HERE WHEN THIS FAT BITCH CAME IN, SHE NEARLY TIPPED HER FUCKING TABLE OVER WHEN SHE SAT DOWN. THE WAITRESS WAS RUDE BECAUSE THIS TUB OF BEEF TALLOW CAME IN AND IMMEDIATELY STARTED YELLING ABOUT BEING SEATED, THE WAITRESS REPLIED "I'm so sorry, ma'am. We're very overbooked right now, and I'd love to seat you." AND THIS OVERWEIGHT ADAM RICHMAN LOOKING BITCH HUFFED AND PUFFED HER WAY TO A CORNER TABLE, WHERE MOST PEOPLE WOULD HAVE PLENTY OF SPACE. BUT WITH THE WIDE-LOAD THIS BROAD WAS CARRYING, SHE WOULD'VE BITCHED ABOUT SPACE IF YOU DUMPED HER IN THE MIDDLE OF THE INDIAN OCEAN. SHE WENT THROUGH THREE BOTTLES OF WINE, ALL WHILE COMPLAINING THAT IT WAS "WATERED DOWN", BUT YOU COULDN'T TELL BY THE WAY HER FAT DRUNK ASS WAS TUMBLING THROUGH THE RESTAURANT AND SMASHING THE MENU AGAINST HER FACE JUST TO BE ABLE TO READ IT. SHE INHALED FOUR ENTREES IN LESS THAN THREE MINUTES, AND MADE SURE TO BITCH AND MOAN ABOUT THEM AS SHE STUFFED MEAL AFTER MEAL DOWN HER TROAT. DIS MUDDA FUCKIN COCK SUCK. LISTEN I EAT HERE ALL THE TIME AND MY ONLY COMPLAINT IS THAT I WISH I HAD MORE TIME TO GO THERE BECAUSE THE FOOD IS SO FUCKING GOOD. I WOULD BEAT A STARVING ETHIOPIAN CHILD AND MUG HIS SHIT FROM HIM IF HE HAD A PLATE OF CAMPESE'S FAMOUS RIGATONI™. ALL THIS SHIT I GOT FUCKING BACK PROBLEMS AND I STILL MAKE TIME TO GO TO THIS TRATTORIA BECAUSE IT'S FOOD FROM ITALIAN HEAVEN, NOT NORMAL HEAVEN, BUT THE ITALIAN ONE. TL;DR THIS ANGUS STOCK WOULD BITCH ABOUT ANY "CUISINE" THAT DOESN'T COME FROM A FEED STORE
  9. I think it's fun to make fun of self-inserts, but I really don't support any rule against them existing. The self-insert culture on GTAW, as lame as it may be, enables a much larger concentration of "average joes" or "civilians" then I think I've ever seen on a GTA RP server before, which is great. That being said; I'd consider it a necessary evil, as self-insert RP'ers are, in my opinion, not good RP'ers. But as long as they're not terrible, I'm happy to let them fill my businesses and sit in the background during much more interesting scenarios.
  10. All graphics mods* At worst they're literally a filter that does nothing for graphical fidelity At best, they offer very small, hardly noticeable improvements.
  11. What can I offer? A local resident of the area, with a long-storied tenure at the Tavern and plenty of cherished memories among friends and former foes. A devoted, hands-on businessowner, one who won't just idly hire a manager and fill his coffers, but who will communicate consistently with and treat with respect those to whom he holds under his employ. An owner who isn't afraid to be his own manager, and won't hesitate to fill a glass or two should he need to. A people person, someone who knows that the warm and convivial atmosphere, and welcoming aura of a business is just as much art as the inventory and employees are science. Someone who you can walk in and see on a friday evening, and say "hey look, there's Mr. Mirror Park Tavern. What a good guy." Someone who loves this community, and wants to contribute to it. Someone who will treat the Tavern as more than a business venture. Someone who will give it the care and respect that such a long-held institution deserves. Someone who will treat the Tavern as part of his family. And of course, I'd pay the buyout.
  12. Hell of an update. Props to the dev team.
  13. Yes. To literally every single one of these suggestions. The server would be much better if they were implemented. I also don't advise editing your posts to point out that people aren't responding to them. It does a horrible combination of making you come across as both arrogant and desperate. Not to mention, it draws attention away from the topic and towards yourself. OT: Agreed. I don't like the idea that just because something happens in real life, that it's considered "realistic". Something being realistic means that it's plausible and doesn't require suspension of disbelief. Roleplaying is story telling; and if you're a good storyteller, you keep things within that ruleset. In real life, two long lost brothers can get hit by a car at the exact same time, break the same bones, and end up at the same hospital despite the accidents occurring 300 miles apart, and be visited by girlfriends who both have blonde hair and blue eyes. But if you see the same thing in a movie, it seems really lazy, contrived, and unbelievable. If it messes with the suspension of disbelief, it needs to be fixed. While sometimes, this is inevitable (crime rates, number of gangs, etc), in this case, it's entirely avoidable. You're not going to lose any of the player base by demanding that their vehicles have some semblance of realistic aesthetic (as compared to say, OOC'ly regulating crime rates, which is definitely going to cost players). I don't think there should be a rule per se (I hate OOC oversight where it isn't necessary), more just that admins be willing to punish people for poor portrayal when their twenty year old bartender rolls up in his 2022 Paragon with white rims and an anime paintjob.
  14. I find it really puzzling that this thread was unlocked. Nothing productive is going to come out of this discussion, because it isn't a gray area or ambiguous topic. It's like making a thread called "What is the speed of sound? Please discuss." You know exactly what the answer is, so why ask? No. It's not going to happen. For a plethora of reasons. 1. It's not worth getting upset about, and it's genuinely concerning if someone is upset by it. 2. It's going to give a ridiculous amount of work to an already incredibly under-staffed admin team. 3. It's completely subjective and unenforceable as to what's "controversial" and what's not. 4. It's a server full of murder, drugs, sexual debauchery, and other mischief. On what world is it logically consistent to draw the line at pictures of guns in profiles? Oh, and to answer the "we need to make sure that people don't condone the concepts they portray IC'ly" problem. No..we don't. For two reasons: A: Having a name or picture related to your IC concept is in no way condoning any of it OOC'ly, and it's your problem for being unable to separate the person from their avatar. B: It's none of your business what personal beliefs people do have, and isn't your place to moderate so long as they aren't actively harming other members of the community.
