well an idea banded around IRC, not my own, i suggested that a tick box to swear in a WAD was put in place, but for PLAYER FOUNDED REGIONS, all passwords are removed but all players outside are banned from entering, so you can not simply walk in, to join a region, a player must TG the founder or th...

I agree with the barrier between RP and R/D but saying Mallora and Riva should resign is unacceptable. I'm also enjoying how you posted saying that Mallora and Riva should resign while he/she has the power to instantly close this thread, or at the worst, ban you. I haven't really pushed for Mall's ...

It's not within the moderators' jurisdiction to "fix" anything. Gameplay fixes are programmed at the top of the flag pole. And even then, they take months to program, test, troubleshoot, and implement. The moderators are just doing their job: enforcing site rules, reiterating what adminis...

No, as somebody else already said, it's more like this: a helicopter is crappy and dangerous to fly, and it can't be fixed. Nobody wants to fly it. Should you continue to keep and maintain and operate the helicopter? Yeah, no. Anybody with a brain would scrap it. But people do want to play it; it i...

But I have played. Multiple times. I still hold the same opinion. If a game can't be sustained without forcing people to play it in order to gain access to the things they actually want to do, then it shouldn't exist. So if something can't be kept alive without forcing it to eat food, then is that ...

Changing the R/D game would require altering the games code. It is not that simple. I would bet money that most, if any of the people here have no idea how this code works. I myself do not know. Yes.

I'm going to go back to what I told the mods - if the perceived outcome of opt-out is that "everyone quits", then it wasn't a game ever worth playing anyways. I know several people (including myself) have already said this several times already in many different ways, but I'll say it agai...

Let's face it, an opt-out feature would ruin trolling and vandalizing other regions for fun raiding. And that would also ruin counter-trolling defending.

I mean, it's tough not to call it trolling when the entire justification to the resolution is "raiders can do more with Haven than its current members can" (as evidenced by this).

Would you prefer it if I removed the lines which refer to TSP in their entirety? Sure. Then your justification would be nonexistent, instead of just flimsy, dishonest shit. No, the justification is still there. And that is that raiders would do more with the region than its current members. As ridi...

If I said that I think I could do more with your account than you are, could we have your password removed?

Oh wait, things don't work like that. Lack of justification behind this resolution.

You're moving the goalposts, now. I'm being honest when I say I think you need to learn how to debate and provide a legitimate argument before starting something like this. You're building a strawman by focusing the entire argument onto a single facet of the proposal and then changing how it is bei...

You've deliberately refused requests for evidence several times. This isn't refusal to accept evidence. This is refusal to accept "but I have evidence that I won't give" as valid evidence.

Are you honestly saying that roleplayers did not support Milograd's coup? Are you honestly saying the roleplaying community is entirely monolithic and always unanimously supports one side in R/D? A massive majority don't even participate in R/D. And of those that do, you have defenders and raiders ...
