This is huge. A lot of this is about respecting other players, like "playing nice in the sandbox". Nobody wants to feel ignored, cast out, or irrelevant. That goes from passive RP to S2RP to S2K. People will not stick around if they are not enjoying themselves, or if they feel like they don't belong. If people aren't getting attention playing a character with a more subtle emotional conflict, they may suddenly start doing more overt things to get attention that may not be realistic given the setting. I'm sure people can think of some cases where they've seen that.All of this above can be solved very easily if you people start respecting eachother and working /togheder/ to find means of creating a fun and interactive setting. Unless this will change every server, not specifically TRP will end up in a circle and die out in the end.
we're already doing that, people going Cpl. and up are told to recruit dudes that seem like they got the hang of thisaddendum: vetting is still on the focus of taking more than 2 seconds to look at someone. I don't see why the idea of wanting people who can type with capitalization and spelling and don't have a OOC-attiude of 'give me a gun' is bad. Should I adjust that in the main-thread post to clarify?
imo your best middle ground is just using milsim or milrp or whatever as a tool to help with combat and that’s about it.People like militaryRP but don't want it excessive, it's always been an issue to try and find the middle ground to satisfy everyone.
That's just the nature of the beast.The biggest threat, though, to the server is the pants on head retardation
