To create an underage character you’d need to apply for it.

Application shouldn’t take ages to get reviewed and it should ask like background, purpose in RP, and all that.

 

Wouldn't change much, to be honest. We already require people to fill in an application to get in-game in the first place and stuff still happens. If someone wants to use an underage character to troll (which way too many people do), they'll do so as long as they have the chance to.

Having a list of people who RP underage, putting more effort to get an underage character, would definitely improve the underage characters RP.

This list, I suppose, would only be available to the staff team, as it would otherwise cause all sorts of disagreements and other issues stemming from the access of such IC information to everyone, on the forums. The staff team is already loaded with work - they're volunteers, have their own lives, want to play as well besides administrating. They either won't have time or will not want to constantly spectate a list of characters, on top of everything else they do, just to make sure their portrayal is fine.

 

RPQM cases are known to take forever, due to how long it takes to gather all information and then how long it takes to gather evidence, as well as all of the factors involved. Imagine multiplying that by the number of underage characters that would be on such list. It would be nice, I'll admit that, but it would never be feasible.

Considering how long it takes for ck appeals, staff reports, player reports, etc can take to be answered, I don’t think that an additional burden should be added to the staff team in order to rp a basic character that’s essential to gang rp and development.

why are people saying rping 12 is absolutely vital to gang rp... gangs dont recruit children the way they used to. there's simply no need. gang banging nowadays is more of a choice than a need and most active gang bangers are either about to hit 18 or older than 18. you do not need to rp younger than 16 for any discernible reason. children are around gangs and they sometimes contribute via acting as lookouts or mules but most of it is related to the drug trade, which on GTA:W is beyond horrible.

 

restricting character's ages to 16+ will not "cripple gang RP" . only on gta:w have i seen that boring, uninspired "oh u from here?" rp. just pretend you known that person in passing and assume you've had some minor encounters in the past. this shit ab having to rp a young teen is stupid and leads to the army of child soldiers everybody mocks.

It's shameful to initiate a person into the set by the time that they are 18. Thus, instead of developing a character, you want every character to be hardened gang-bangers within the first month of RPing? Isn't that what were trying to prevent? The average gang-member gets recruited by the time that they are 16-17 and die by the time that they are 20. This would mean that each new character would have to be initiated into the set within a month of RPing, tops, to evade being shamed.

you absolutely don't need more than 2 months to be put on. it's not the mob and you're not being made. getting put on in a gang is only the start. i've never liked it when people treat it as if it's this massive event.

Let's raise the age to 16 for factions and 18 only for others then. Problem solved
