Can I just say a lot of people are giving the staff a lot of criticism for lack of updates or not listening to you guys. I have given you guys opportunities to talk to me about the rules. I have now 0 staff complaints in my form (to be fair some complaints were dealt with today) and I just keep seeing winging on the forum. All of us staff here are here for free including Heavy Bob. He created a place for you guys to play and enjoy with the help of people like Gforce and Vawriss and other people in the mix. Even mods are helping and volunteering their time. There are some players doing what they can to boost roleplay and help even. Great examples are what Mater, Adam and Seven have been doing. But then on the other hand there are people demanding stuff from us to the point of where it becomes bullying tactics.
"We did a terrorist attack because of the lack of updates"
Honestly screw you guys. This shit is the most immature stuff I have seen. Would you go to kmart and say "We want you to stock burgers and you don't so we are going to trash the place"? No you wouldn't because that is rediculous. And they actually get paid.
"The server sucks and you don't listen so I wont say what we want"
You can also go screw yourself because all you are doing is creating unnessersary drama. There are so many ways to be able to voice what you would like done on the server. I have seen a lack of rule applications with a lot of insults.
"You need to be active all the time"
Staff have lives out of this server like anyone else. We don't always talk about it but most of us have school. Some of us work. We like to see friends and experience quality time with our family. I have been told constantly by players that this should be my life. I have pulled all nighters to help people out and so have other staff.
"Put in this thing that can't be put into gmod/isn't compatable with our game type"
No. We simply can't make miracles happen. Gmod is a pretty old game. Obviously feel free to suggest things but if we can't do it then we don't want to lie and make false promises.
"The server is dead and boring"
You can do one of 2 things. Do something productive of your time elsewhere or help contribute to making it less boring by suggesting rules, events and even setting up roleplay scenarios. People consistantly screaming "the servers dead lol" clearly do not care about the server or community. If you don't want it to die help contribute to keeping it alive. If you do want it to die how about go outside and climb a tree.
"I want to RP but I feel like someone will ruin it"
Go for roleplaying. We have rules in place to prevent these issues. If they do occur call a staff member
"There are too many rules"
The reason why we have so many rules is because when we tell people "this is fail rp" everyone screams "SHOW ME THE EXACT RULE" so stop doing that and the rules could be shorter. But at this stage it is like this for a reason.
"thanks for ALL these helpful updates. dont worry there aren't any better updates u could of done instead of these
e.g bank raid, atms, jobs and stuff that might bring people joy and fun to the server instead of being bored :)"
Be grateful. This is a free service where we don't have monthly fees to keep a rank. Our server is run by real people who volunteer spare time. If we lack spare time we lack the time to do things.
"Data banned me again so fix your fucking staff"
Don't break rules also Data can't ban because mods can't ban.
TLDR: this is a free server ran by volunteers so stop acting entitled. Where are your parents?
