  1. I am in the wrong a lot of the time, and I do listen to players if they want to respectfully talk about it. Some days, I'm going to be bitchy as I'm a human IRL, but I do try to reason and compromise. No, if I have friends, I do not handle their reports. Yes, if someone thinks they were wrongly banned by me, I look into it and deal with it with them there. Again, sometimes we forget that this is also a teaching server. I have been a lot more harsher with temporary banning players lately instead of ajailing as I look at the player and realize they haven't learned. This isn't just for regular administrative work, it's also for leases as well. I try to reason, I listen to you as much as I can, and we come to a compromise. That's how life works, this is a game, I'm trying to make sure everyone has a good time. Involving staff management is on the bottom of the totem pole because there shouldn't be a huge bridge between players and admins. I rather be "online" on discord to look approachable (I know I sometimes forget to respond to some of you, blame me taking a nap and reading the message during the nap), than "DND" because when I was a player, I tried to look for those who were "online" or had a good reputation among my group of friends. Granted, I know some players don't like me. And that's perfectly okay, I'm not here to be your friend. But if you honest to God need me, I will be there to help you out even if you bitched me out or staff reported me (I don't care, I understand the frustrations and I learn from the staff reports).
  2. VERY true - it could be taken as an IC issue. I will ask the PM team how they feel about this!
  3. Hmm.. I am afraid people will abuse this so easily as let's be honest, they are pretty fun vehicles to mess around in. These types of vehicle requests are so easy done as well and accepted within a hour or two if I am around. A compromise can be reached maybe? These can always be open for request and it should take 48 hours. Would something like that be okay? I don't need even need a paragraph. I need a character's name and why you want it. "I wanna mow my yard" is literally all I'd need or "I'm using this for my business cause I'm lazy to walk from A to B". Would that suffice?
  4. This issue isn't people requesting cars that are 200k-300k IRL - I understand that finances will cover this. I'm talking about the 2-4 million dollar cars that the honest Joe Blow who isn't even a huge deal or gives correct character portrayal (explanation and justification) to get this specific car. I'm also talking about the rarity of cars which many people requested the same vehicle whereas only 120 vehicles of this sort was sold in the USA with 599 total vehicles. Those cars that are not rare, are not super expensive, I, and probably the entire PM team as well, don't mind if they go in the car dealership - but hey, we need to do some research and get the modding team on that in order to get that put in place. For example: If you are a business owner, you just received said business, and you decide to apply for a 'wealthier' car - ~200k-500k. The business hasn't been active yet, hasn't even started opening, and you're claiming you have a successful business and you're rich based off of this. It's most likely going to be denied. This is because the justification you provided on owning or financing such a car is null. If the business becomes active within the next cycle of leases comes up (usually once a month as property requests then open up first) then you have more of a standing argument and you'll probably get accepted then. -- My question mainly for this post - How strict should the RARE AND 2-4 MILLION DOLLAR cars be? That's literally... 80% of the requests. Are those cars. The cars like Weevil, D10 coquette, etc are hardly ever requested for which in turn, aren't that expensive IRL and would probably be accepted lol. Everyone wants to portray a rich character and have a rare car, yet, in a realistic way - you wouldn't be able to get your hands on that rare and expensive car. If you provide the property justification? Sure. But please, research more into it. Everyone wants a fancy vehicle that more than likely doesn't make sense to their character, but wants it mostly for OOC reasons. This is the issue I face the majority of the time. I don't want to read a 2 page essay lmao, I don't think anyone does. I don't request for anyone to write a 2 page essay. I request for the minimalist information needed which if you are straight to the point - you can get within two paragraphs of 6-8 sentences. There are a total of 674 vehicles in GTA:Online from a quick glance. I will go through them eventually and prod the modding team to see if we can add a majority in that doesn't need to be specially requested through leases. Those that have issues with them, (go over a certain speed, a car doing wheelies, specific modifications that we're leery on, rarity, etc), will be leases only as we can keep an eye on the player and whatnot. I think the above ^ is a good compromise, but it is a big project and does require many opinions. Thoughts on that? Of course, the modding or development team could just say no, and that is a factor that we will deal with, but in short, opinions/feedback? (I too, want to make less work on myself.)
  5. This is specific to only one time vehicle leases. Regular vehicle leases, business leases and requests are all 1 month clean administrative record. Houses are 3 I believe. This won't change as it's supposed to be a unique and rewarding players who don't break the rules anyways. You are told to read the rules as you do an application to get on the server anyways. Majority of the time 95%, even if the admin is retired, they are easy to get in contact with and don't mind.
  6. I am open to discussion about this. If it's "small" (warning for something small) then that is something we can discuss on a one versus one basis. There is obviously no guarantee, but I will reach out to the admin who handed the punishment to get an idea of what went wrong.
  7. What I am talking about: How do you feel about this? Should it be kept, should it go? Should we narrow down specifically even more of what can and cannot be accepted? Should we be more open to accepting 'rarer' cars? Previously, in lease requests - there has been 'rare' cars requested (rare as in IRL with manufacturers only making 8 of these specific cars or 600 of them). In my mind, it's very hard to accept such an application because there's never any justification to the lease application itself (in my view) of how they acquired such a vehicle, etc. I truly do not believe people research (which they shouldn't have to) the rarity and IRL costs. In all honesty, do you think a 2.2 million dollar car that only has 599 models made worldwide should be accepted as a special one-time vehicle lease? How do you think we should improve moving forward with this program? Please do not derail, I do want honest feedback, constructive criticism and ways to improve this program. I don't claim it, but I do know that we are limited within the server and car dealerships to specific cars - so I don't necessarily want to close and never open these up again.
