Hey guys, if this thread continues in discussion of factions, it's going to be locked and archived. It's just faction bashing at this point with no constructive criticism, just pointless opinions to flame at factions they don't agree with. Continue with other topics.

If a situation is voided after an LEO faction has spent an hour on scene roleplaying with someone - it should only be voided on the victims side and the person should have to roleplay they did it to a John Doe so there aren't 10 roleplayers burning up loads of time for it to be voided because someone got heated about taking an L on the other side of the city.

"just report them" is the biggest copout answer you could ever possibly give and people just use it to dodge an actual discussion

It warms my heart when I see "just report them" because I know they literally have nothing else to say and feel like its the only way to continue making a point. It's very amusing.

More grass touchers. Definitely needed.

"Imagine roleplaying on a roleplay server" and "this is HEAVY RP" aren't arguments, don't bring anything to any discussion and should be grounds for an instant perma ban under rule 1.

Lawnmowers shouldn't be lease only, we need more drunk idiots driving them around and getting pulled over.

This isn't unpopular, it's amazing 😛

More edgy roleplay should be allowed like the person before me has said, we're a roleplay server and not a SJW PC hub for Twitter retards. What happens in character must stay in character, therefore people must stop being so judgemental of how the people behind these characters might be. I am not saying this to defend any fiends who fetishize characters to the point that they're nothing but harmful stereotypes, or people who purely want to roleplay the forbidden apple stuff, but rather, my point is that fucked up shit happens every time in real life. People get severed, raped, kidnapped or all at the same time sometimes. The fact that there are rules in place to prevent it happening in "broad daylight" is completely fine, but the outright ban on some "offensive roleplay" is something I don't really like. If you wanna eat a corpse, fucking eat it, what's it gonna do? Report it to the police? No, as long as it's outside of other players' view, who cares? Nobody cares, literally nobody.

I do agree that this server, unfortunately, is a getaway for many fucked up people, but I do not agree that everything should be so strictly controlled or outright banned just because a few people have been caught and happened to be pretty fucked in the head. Making laws or rules in order to protect minors who might play this game is dumb and it is what constantly denies people their freedoms. This game is rated 18+, there's nudity, extreme violence, explosions, drug use, prostitution and fuck knows what else in the base game. This server should not even make it a priority to "protect the children", I bet my ass most of you have started roleplaying when y'all were under eighteen. It's the parents' job to make sure their kids do not do what they should not be doing. The unfortunate and sad truth is that teens and children end up playing adults games, watching adult media and using substances meant only for adults such as alcohol or nicotine anyways. This server is not a daycare, we're out here to roleplay normal lives 99% of the time with the occasional sex, killing, drug use or other stuff. 

And like I have already said, rules are already in place to prevent this kind of stuff from happening in broad daylight. You, as a Player, have the option to fade to black or deny certain types of roleplay. This is fine but it could be looser, my whole point is that this server is not a Roblox server where 12 year olds play some dumb shit, this is an adult game and adult stuff should not be taken as seriously.

And yes, I do understand that if we let people do their thing more, there would be articles such as "THIS GTA SERVER ALLOWS PEOPLE TO RAPE EACH OTHER! SEE HOW!" but once again, who cares? We, roleplayers, do not care. The media and Twitter retards will always want attention and an empty pot to stir shit up in, it will come and go in a wave and then be forgotten forever.

While I think we should have lesser restrictions, I also think that we should stay vigilant and keep our eyes open, looking out for people who might abuse certain scenarios for their own, fucked up personal pleasure. We want roleplayers who roleplay realistic characters for the sake of development and creating interesting scenarios and characters, we do not want creeps who ERP because they're bored of PornHub.

PKs need to be reworked to make a murder and its execution matter.

 

The meta of faction threads and often heavily doctored screenshots is antiquated and rarely adds much of value other than opening up MG opportunities and creating unoriginal characters to fit into a faction you want to join.

 

Mallrat behaviour is in great part a byproduct of the server's tight bureaucracy and hurdles for creative expression beyond wasting script money on assets.
