  Implementation of a higher authority on rule 4
Posted by: Domey - Today, 03:10 AM - Forum: Server Suggestions - Replies (9)

(1) What is your In-game name & Steam ID?

In-game name: Edward Kimmegan
Steam name: Domey
Steam ID: STEAM_0:0:40561724

(1a) Have you read through the Common Suggestions and Answers post?


Yessir, my suggestion is quite unlike the ones listed.

(2) What is your suggestion?


Oh boy this is a doozie. So my suggestion helps the server find a way to focus more on flushing out the "toxic" community/aspect of the server. Everyday I go to school waiting to get home and hop on HWRP, if given the chance. It is a server that I always find myself coming back to, even if I have a long hiatus. I was on the server since before the map changed to what it is today and reached around 6th year. I lived through the beginning of "party at Hagrid's" and many other well known HWRP memes. It was reset and now I am on the verge of getting to sixth year on this map as well. 

      But there is a problem. Whenever I do join the server, most days I am greeted with students who; Have disgusting attitudes, avoid roleplay entirely, minge just because they can, abuse powers, micspam for the hell of it, rdm and say they didn't do it, disrespect other players including their rp leader, etc. etc. I mean Jesus this list can just keep going on and on. I feel that this behavior is displayed by a majority of lower year students (1-3) and even some veterans (6+ - prestige, but only on few occasions). This type of behavior influences a negative rp experience entirely. The flow of rp can easily be interrupted by a loud fart on the mic, or a holly jolly carol that nobody asked for, or a stupefy to the teacher's face, I mean there are so many ways that it can be interrupted it's like the stop light stays red and goes green for 3 seconds every so often. 

I feel there might be a way we can effectuate a simple solution:

Implement higher authority on rule 4
For reference, rule 4 is as follows:
4.) Obey Staff and Roleplay leaders -

You must obey the orders of your higher roleplay leaders as long as the orders do not incite you to break another rule.
These are two basic lists that rank the jobs from the least powerful to the most powerful:
-Students < Prefects < Head Prefects < Head Boy/Girl < Teachers < Headmaster
-Snatchers < Snatcher Leader < Head Snatcher < Death Eaters < VIP/Elite Death Eaters < Voldemort

Whenever students don't listen to prefects (I prefect a lot and most of the time they don't) it generally disrupts the flow of rp. And a lot of the time students don't even listen to the teachers AT ALL. Students will freespell them, backtalk them and (maybe) get arrested for it, cause an argument or conversation that gets the teacher off track, etc. And even when given the ol' slap on the hand by higher-ups it keeps happening. If we were to give some form of higher punishment to the students who DONT follow the rank of rp leadership it will be easier to differentiate the minges/toxic players from the ones who are here for a genuine experience.


(3) What made you feel that this change was necessary or would make a great addition? - I feel that this change is necessary because it will help filter out the more toxic players from the pool and open up an easier and smoother flow of roleplay experience, not only for the veterans who like to be in the classes to (actually) learn, but for the new people who hop on the server like "this looks fun... I'll try it". Normally they are greeted with all of the obnoxious misbehaviors of their peers the moment they set foot in the server and the first impression leaves the biggest mark. If they experience a slow rp that barely goes anywhere they might either A. disapprove of the experience entirely and give up on the server without being able to take in the full "magic in the air" experience that it gives me and many other people, or B. Enjoy the idiotic behavior of the peers and follow in their footsteps, adding another layer of toxicity to the server in the form of a newbie just doing what everyone else is doing, completely forgetting the reason they came on the server.

I entirely believe that more cooperation and listening to the current rp leader in the room will vastly enhance the flow of roleplay and make it a much friendlier environment, not only for first years who care, or veterans who are sick of everybody's shit, but also everybody in between

(4) What could be possible negatives if your suggestion were to be added?


One possible negative I see is that if a student who didn't read up on all the rules (shame on them) comes in and makes a mockery, they may only be warned once or completely encapsulated in unnecessary punishments.

Another would be deceptions/misunderstandings. I get it, these happen a lot. A student gets shunned and they apologize saying "It won't happen again", just the thing they NEED to say to get out of the sit and disregard the reason they were brought there in the first place. Or maybe the wrong person got pulled into a sit, or they didn't realize their own behavior because that's how they are. It is truly tricky trying to place the deceivers from the misunderstood, and this may be a possible challenge with this implementation.

Thank you for the time you put into reading this behemoth of text. I mean, I like to defend a fairly valid point to all extension I can. And even if my suggestion is shot down for whatever reason I will continue to be a loyal member of HWRP and I will continue to play on this amazing server. Keep on doing what you're doing guys, I love all the work you put into this to make it what it is and what it will become <3

  Unbreakable Tool
Posted by: GinaGovernatore - Today, 02:24 AM - Forum: Server Suggestions - Replies (4)

(1) What is your In-game name & Steam ID? 
Gina Governatore, STEAM_0:1:48075668

(1a) Have you read through the Common Suggestions and Answers post? - 

Yes, I have.

(2) What is your suggestion? - 

Add either: 
or
 both of which are less than 1mb in size.

Both addons allow for props to be made unbreakable. 

(3) What made you feel that this change was necessary or would make a great addition? - 

Administrators and Gamemakers having to deal with dragons who can break certain props with their fire, as well as slappers (which I think can break some props) and claws/SWEPS which are also able to break props. Some props are so fragile that simply throwing them in the air will cause them to break upon landing (case and point that one dining-chair in rp_bremergard).


(4) What could be possible negatives if your suggestion were to be added? - 

No negatives.

Exclamation [Clone Wars RP] Operation Ironclad (CAMPAIGN)
Posted by: Corgi - Today, 01:58 AM - Forum: Event Announcements - Replies (1)

*Begin Transmission*
"Welcome everyone to the nightly Galactic Republic holonet channel, where we keep you updated on all the important news from across the Republic. Today's top story: Republic Medical Convoys under siege? Over the course of the past few weeks, several republic medical convoys full of civilians and military personnel have been under constant raids from the CIS while traveling near and around the Rengada system. Why the CIS have established such a strong presence in this region of space is unknown, as the Rengada system doesn't hold any actual strategic value. Nevertheless, Republic officials have warned any civilian or military vessels from entering this area for the time being. Rumors are being spread around that the venator "Retribution" shall be sent in with a small task force to investigate these raids, but no confirmed word has been given yet. In other news, th-"
*End Transmission* 

Meanwhile, aboard a CIS Flagship near the Rengada system...


[Image: 8RaVVik.jpg]
Over PA: "All fighters and gunships, prepare to launch to engage another convoy, stand by for further orders."

[Image: l5qC2jk.jpg]
Over PA: "All command crew and turret gunners report to your battlestations, have all ships form up into raiding formation Charlie-9." 


[Image: Se3EbgR.jpg]

In a low voice: "As long as we keep the republic at bay by scaring off their convoys, they can't find out about the Zeta-9's.. just need to hold out a little longer, then our creation will be complete, and the republic shall fall.. just a little longer.."



This is the first of many campaigns I hope to do on the server, it will include every single gamemaker and every battalion will have their own role. It is planned to occur on 12/15/18. It will start at 3:30 PM EST/2:30 PM CST and finish at around 10 PM EST/9 PM CST. The campaign will include breaks as well to allow for tryouts and trainings to take place between sections of the campaign.

Let all your friends know, hell let everyone know, that this Saturday at the times stated above, we begin Operation Ironclad. 


TO OFFICERS AND/OR BATTALION LEADERS: This campaign will include the following combat styles or concepts, and as such it is recommended to train your men on these concepts before the campaign begins, so we are all equally prepared. 
  • Jumping out of/Getting into LAATs quickly and efficiently; "Hot Drops"
  • Large-scale frontline AT-TE + Infantry Combat
  • Splitting attack forces into separate groups
  • Objectives with time limits

P.S: I used to do many campaigns back in the day on SBS and VG, so I'm very, very excited to bring these back in full force to the new SBS. I hope to see you all there, and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I will. - Corgi

  More female staff
Posted by: Malevolent - Yesterday, 06:59 PM - Forum: Denied Suggestions - Replies (10)

(1) What is your In-game name & Steam ID? - STEAM_0:1:75211738

(1a) Have you read through the Common Suggestions and Answers post? -
Yes
(2) What is your suggestion? - There is far more male staff than female and I don't think that's okay. There is 23 male staff members (24 if you count Guy) and only 10 female staff members. I find it unfortunate that in 2018 something like this is considered tolerable. My suggestion is to have more female staff members to the point it's 50-50 male and female or more female. 

(3) What made you feel that this change was necessary or would make a great addition? - This way the female members of this server would feel better represented and it would show that this server and it's community truly care for equality. It would also put a stop to the male bigotry on this server.



(4) What could be possible negatives if your suggestion were to be added? - None.

@Satia Aeternalis 
Thought I should tag the staff manager.
