I agree completely. People shouldn't have to wait god knows how long to be allowed to roleplay. Most people I know don't give a fuck about /f and the few benefits you get from being scripted in. You don't need to micro-manage factions to the extent that this sever is currently employing. People should just post their faction threads and get straight into it. If there's any issues with the thread, portrayal of RP quality then IFM can talk to, archive or in extreme cases ban the offenders. The current system just feels very limiting and demotivating.
