    Dear Revolution Community, Over the past few weeks as the Senior Admin here, I’ve noticed a lot of things about the way that people have begun to roleplay and what has become acceptable in this community. These are not positive things, and they are all mentality issues in regards to roleplay. I wanted to write this letter as a way to try and connect with those issues, address them, and maybe offer up some additional insight from someone that has roleplayed and been a big part of this community for over 3 years now. It has always been the biggest joy in my life to lead this community and be the person that is always open to discussing everything with each and every one of you. Know that my door is always open for you guys, and I will continue to hear you guys out and take what you have to say to heart. I will continue to go to bat for each one of you to make this place the best it can possibly be. I am writing this letter in part because I don’t know how else to express to everyone what these issues are, and how we can collectively go about fixing the state of roleplay here. I want Revolution to continue to grow, improve, and be a home base for continuing the amazing stories that we’ve all been writing all of these years. I am begging this community. Please, listen to what I have to say. Even if you feel like your roleplay is perfect, please still try to take something away from this. See the different perspective, be willing to admit that no one is perfect, and we all have room for growth. That we all have room to help each other grow and expand, and most of all, have fun. 1. Let’s talk about the box truck issue. This is one of those things that is so commonplace now, that it seems normal. We’ve also discussed having the ability to put people in vehicles, and what the heck is going on with that? The box truck problem is way bigger than the majority of people realize. As an EMS, I probably see the effect of the box truck issue more than any other department or person on the server. Most of you just think that you use it for the dire situations to help your buddies who are injured try to escape some jail time. In reality, it is a chronic, widespread issue on the server. People use them when EMS are clocked in. We’ll go hours with 1-2 calls, but watch trucks and cars pull up and people being dumped into the hospital with no regard to roleplaying their injuries (which is where it falls into Fail RP). Even at these big shooting scenes, there’s no regard for ripping off a piece of your shirt to tie off the bullet wound. Just mechanically grab, jump, dump, and drive. Where is the roleplay in that? Now, I can also understand the other side of the coin. If we can’t help our guys, then what do you expect us to do? Isn’t it Fail RP that my gang-loyal character has to just walk away from their hurt buddies and not help them? Yes, I understand. We have discussed putting people in vehicles mechanically for all, and that is on the list of things to do, it just keeps getting pushed down the priority list. So what do we do in the meantime? After hearing out the Community Representatives, Admins will stop drawing such a thick line on this particular rule, up until the point where the regular mechanical feature is implemented. That will be fully explained in an announcement. To all of you that rage-quit out of the server the other day instead of trying to talk things out, or go to your Community Representatives – that does nothing to make this place better. If you’re angry about something: an Admin decision, things going on in the server, speak up. Be heard. At least help us try to fix what you perceive as being a wrong here. 2. (Box truck issue, extended) EMS are neutral, and we don’t utilize them enough The EMS department has fought LEO’s a few times over on their rule of neutrality. The EMS department prides itself on their stance on remaining neutral. On being the people that are just there to help you and to save lives, regardless of who the person is or what they have done. We want to do our jobs, we want to help save lives. We don’t want to be kidnapped to help you rob a bank or a store. But if you kidnap us to help your hurt friend, we’re there. Shoot, you don’t even have to threaten us. Just tell us what happened, and we’re there. That’s an EMS’s purpose. We will always care more about saving lives than getting anyone in trouble with the cops. 3. Selfish roleplay and how its only fun for you One of our biggest issues as a community right now is selfish roleplay. The kind of roleplay where only your needs matter, only your character matters, and only you are having fun. Every complaint I’ve gathered from criminal, civilians, cops, EMS, everyone, boils down to this. When you are roleplaying, everyone in the situation should matter. Consider how your character’s actions are going to affect other characters. Are you the only one laughing? Are you shutting down someone else’s roleplay just so you can come out on top? 4. Your character is a character. It isn’t you. (Also – taking IC to the OOC) For many, there is a thin line between the real you, and your character. It’s easy to fall into a trap of just playing yourself, especially considering Revolution might be the first place you’ve roleplayed, and its easy to have your first character be a reflection of yourself. But even if you’ve designed a character as a mirror image of yourself, you still need to separate what is happening in the game versus how you feel out of character. If you find yourself doing this, fill out a character sheet and stick to it. Change something about your character that makes them different then the real you. Find the separation. Without separation, you are bound to translate OOC feelings into IC feelings. When you play yourself, those aren’t two different things. In game toxicity, harassment, combat logging, “salty” behavior, has become some of our biggest complaints and reports within the last month. Why is it that every time you’re caught by the cops you berate them with every word in the book? Yell over other people to shut down everything their trying to say in the interaction? Push people to the limit of quitting because they can’t even interact with you? How is that enjoyable? Why can we not find a common ground to stand on that says – this is my character, and I’m here to roleplay with another person? 5. Gunplay > Roleplay, and what happened to the long-term stories? No one is scared of each other anymore, and no one is scared of guns anymore. We pretend that our characters value their lives, but then start shooting each other after saying nothing to two words. Why are we all so quick to pull the trigger? This is rampant on both sides, not just one. What happened to talking to each other before shutting down the roleplay with bullets? What happened to smart criminals that stalked you, got to know who you were, and figured out a way to hurt you beyond all comprehension by not even shooting you directly? There is no regard for long term stories anymore. Anyone who wants to start up something long-term generally gets shut down. Why? Why is everyone living for a few hours to do their daily motions, and not thinking about the rest of their lives? This is why we all keep getting burnt out on roleplay. This is why we need breaks, need to play other games for a while, need to step away to find the love in roleplay again. When you’re just here to exist for a few hours, and you have nothing drawing you back in for the long game, then you’re not going to want to come back. Set a long term goal. Start a long-term heist (yes, those resources ARE available to you). Start a long term story with someone. Make a new character with a long-term purpose. Expand your business. Be more than just a singular drone that is here just to clock in, or just to shoot cops and rob bank. Think about how everything builds up and should change your character’s goals and daily life. I may have gotten long winded. You may all just skim the points and not take the time to listen to me drone on. But again. I am begging all of you. Each and every single one of us are responsible for the status of the community. This is not just a place for the staff. Revolution is ALL of us, collectively, agreeing on a set of rules and making our own place here. Every single person matters, every single opinion matters, and every single character matters. Please, let’s collectively take this to heart, and try and make this the best fuckin place imaginable. With all my love, Ruby Blaze

    After a lengthy meeting between Admins and Community Representatives, the Admins have decided to not have as thick of a fail RP line on box trucks being used as means of transporting someone medically injured to the hospital. We've decided on the following compromises: If you use a box truck to help someone who isn't actively being chased by someone/cops/other criminals as a way to avoid medical roleplay and not roleplay your injuries, its Fail RP. If you use a box truck to help someone who is in danger of being caught by cops/others BUT take the time to at the very least provide that downed person some level of medical help, it isn't Fail RP. That being said, we do still beg of you. If you know there are EMS clocked in. Please drive them to a different location and call EMS. EMS are neutral and are only there to help you medically. Please stop eliminating a whole group of eager roleplayers from doing their purpose by just driving everyone straight to the hospital and flinging them in a bed. This compromise is only good up until the point where mechanically everyone can put people in vehicles. Once that happens, ALL box truck transports will return to being fail RP every time because of how it devalues the life of the person/their injuries. The timeline for being able to put people in any vehicle is roughly 2-3 weeks, as other things have been bumped into higher priority. We know this is something you guys really want and are working diligently to try and make sure we implement it correctly.

    I know I hardly play here anymore but just want to take the time and say Jasmine is one dedicated dev member that as an "old-time" member I would personally vouch for any day. I know Revo is going through its issues and what not, but putting down the Dev team won't make it any better.

So thank you, and i can't wait to do more w/ Jake ^-^ "SEE YOU SOON, FRIENDS! :DD" -Jake

    In my first reply, I failed to discuss second chances in detail. Maybe we can give the community a second chance, and maybe the staff can give some of the persons I listed, and even those whom I missed a second chance. My initial reaction to the Mod Team post was somewhat fueled by frustration as the server has been nearly empty or completely empty on days and times when we were used to seeing 30-40+ people. It would be nice to see people give things a second chance over this weekend. There is so much good, and enjoyment that countless persons have contributed to in this community over the years. I am going to be on tomorrow, and I hope others are equally inclined to do such.

    I'm just gonna say with the current state of the server population some things need to change. I would just like to see more transparency with the community thats all. A lot of us have been here for years and I feel like when people state their opinions and ideas to better the server it gets shot down real quick even if the majority of people may agree with it.

    So what I am gathering from the responses on this is a few consistencies. Members want a bit more visibility on things in the background of where things are going. We are and will look at how to improve this. We hear you. Members would like a more engaged process when it comes to communicating bans and warnings. We hear you, there is room to grow on this and will look into some changes. Members are hoping for more unrestricted mechanics. We are and have been 100% looking into something about this, I can attest I am leading part of the model around the who's and hows There are a lot of misleading understandings of how things work that are festering in the member base. Please please, ask questions before you believe what you hear from someone else. There are a lot of statements here being made that are way off base and getting followers. There are a lot of good points that have been made here, and some sadly have lost their cantor of helpful conversation but I am glad people are responding. It shows that there is life here that is pleading for a positive experience. That is something we can all keep close and run with. Thanks to all the constructive feedback.

    I will be re-opening the thread, as I think a lot of good can come out of it. As a reminder, you are free to bring up issues, and questions for staff, but if anyone, from here on out, posts ANYTHING we deem as trolling/stirring the pot/etc, you will TBanned, and receive points for causing a disruption, especially since it's in a thread where we are trying to make things better for everyone. Posts like @Mike Michaelson, while controversial to some, are helpful, and welcomed, and we'd love to see more people posting concerns or questions. Lets act like adults here. kthx

    Folks, if you cannot be adult enough to refrain from personal attacks on a thread intended to send a positive message, then please choose another course of action. Out of disappointment, this thread will unfortunately be locked.

    We do have a trello, but we rely on the forums for public information. Anything that's suggested gets looked at every single day, sometimes 2 or 3 times a day on the same suggestion over and over. If there isn't a comment, there hasn't been a discussion or reason to comment. If it's on hold, it's typically because its low priority, or we're still trying to figure out the coding to make it a thing. Many times, I've released sneak peeks of things that I think people will enjoy, but if it's not something related to housing, businesses, putting people in cars or any of the other hot topics, people usually scoff at the post. It was our way of saying, hey, we've got some neat stuff. A lot of those fun features are things we worked on while taking a break from the big projects. As floppy stated, his mechanic and business code is extensive, sometimes you just gotta stop and do something else. Maybe inspiration for something else will hit and it's a very simple thing. The 1 or 2 day break working on the other fun thing, can be a welcome break from the really hard stuff. I'll discuss maybe having a public view trello, but for now, we're still gonna do our best to relay info and so dev updates through the forums. Without removing those cars, we were not able to get past 50 players. We did have over 55 one day when we increased it in the middle of RP randomly (we did announce it too). Suddenly after the 55th person joined, we had a MASSIVE influx of reports from people in game saying their textures were popping in and out, they couldn't see the floor, etc. That's when we knew, if we wanted to have the capability of 64, the cars had to go. Yes, population is low now, but for the time when we were up there, we had record stability after the import cars were removed. You're in the discord, any questions you have can be asked there. If we haven't communicated anything new in the channel, it's because there isn't anything new to communicate. Even though a lot of people are at home because of this COVID-19 debacle, many are playing other games or just doing family things. Don't be afraid to ask questions in the discord. LEO got new cars (handling is being tweaked constantly but they are not up to par with civilian cars by any means) LEO can see into you bag and drag and drop things That's all LEO got recently. The community got: Black market changing over to be dual currency (which included a new tool) Food delivery service job A lot of new interiors Putting people in cars General bug fixes (both ones we created after an update and old ones that just took us a while) Many other optimizations that benefited the whole server, not just one group of people. Most of the suggestions that are outstanding right now are criminal, civilian, or quality of life related. I see one suggestion that would benefit only cops, and it wasn't even suggested by a cop. Even the accepted/completed suggestions are majorly civilian/criminal focused. I'm sorry that you feel like LEO are overpowered, but this is sadly not the case. Cops cannot search you for no reason. The Code of Law, available >>HERE<< outlines what can and cannot be done. This is in game information and if you have been searched unfairly, or believe you have been, you can take RP steps to file a complaint and get it resolved. Cops are taught to give time and fines off, so I'm not sure what you've experienced, but MOST cops I know are always giving time off, even when someone just shot their co-worker. Many of these features DO exist, perhaps you haven't found out how to do them? Yes, zip ties are broken, but after your suggestion I put it at the top of my bug fix list. I've actually made a really big deal about testing it the last 2 nights, even up to 5am one night. I'm just stumped at this time on solving that issue. You can rob people AND stores, you can transfer money to players (yes, you gotta be standing next to them), but soon we'd like to roll out a digital currency where you can transfer to people through your phone. Which, yes, we're also trying to re-vamp. We do NOT use ESX, so we cannot just drag and drop like every other server. Converting to ESX is out of the question, mostly because it's not even a better coding system, it's just easy. That is a topic for staff. We historically have struggled with numbers in LEO. What we need is good, clean cops at this time. Having corruption is fun, yes, but if everyone wants to be corrupt because it's fun, then we'll just get ourselves into trouble with the community because our guidelines are strict on what is and isn't punishable. Are you talking about on discord? Because we have a fully active development section on the forums. It even has all of the patch notes and blogs about development (with a roadmap that is ever changing). If the forums aren't enough, we can see about mirroring that on discord too. We do. I know to everyone it doesn't seem like it, but we do listen. We've been bit in the ass before by just giving and giving, so now we're trying to give properly so the things we do implement don't ruin RP or any one group or groups. There's always multiple sides to making a decision on suggestions. What seems easy to many (just do it, what can go wrong?), we can tell you exactly what can go wrong, how, and sometimes even why. Past experiences do shape our thoughts, but we still listen to people when they constructively and respectfully counter our arguments with fact and truth. As I stated a little higher up in this, not possible. We'd have to re-do the ENTIRE server and shut down for a long time. There was a suggestion to do a "revo restart," wipe the code, start over. It's just not something we're willing to do in order to be able to use the poorly made pre-made stuff out there. ESX is widely available, but it's not great code at all. It's not something that's worth giving up 3+ years for. Things that aren't ESX based though, we do try to use. Some of them take minimal conversion effort, others take an extreme amount, but they still save us time, so we don't let that go to waste.

    It seems people keep getting the wrong information about how things are handled around here... I don't know if you guys are noticing how often heating discussions / attacks are happening. It seems to be happening at least once a month, and it always inverts to people feeling like they can't say something or just not being heard. Ever since January you can notice the difference of the community specially since on forums since the idea of "community reps" being introduced. We really haven't had a real community meeting or discussion on what's happening behind the scenes from departs / staff (developers as well). I personally know their's a lot of projects going around but others don't know or hear about it... which is very misleading. Solutions that might help is bring back monthly community meetings or make a post about what's being talked about! Allow a google doc that allows people to ask questions directed towards either the departments/staff/or anyone and allowing them to be completely anonymous. Anyways I love you guys, Stay float of water and groovy ^-^ ❤️

    We have determined our stability is good enough to increase the server restart time length. We will be restarting the server beginning tomorrow, 9 March 2020 and restarts will happen every 12 hours (instead of every 6 hours). Server restarts will now be every day at 3 AM EST and 3 PM EST only.

    When I was still kind of new to rp, I was banned for talking about breaking a rule. Even though I had read the rules, I had forgotten about this particular one and was insta-banned for 3 days with no communication. A simple teamspeak message would have stopped what I was doing and wouldn't have left a bad taste in my mouth. I am over it now, but at the time I was genuinely upset that no one came to me, or even even replied to my ban appeal. I believe the majority of people here are adults, and things can be overlooked or go wrong in the heat of the moment..so please just use words not authority when you can. also this People are going to make mistakes and bad decisions. People also grow and see the errors in their ways. I believe a conversation would be more effective in fixing the issue while keeping people here, especially when people have been here for awhile. I guarantee that most people would not want to lose a character they have worked on for months/years, and a simple conversation would rectify their wrongdoings(unless they are trying to get banned intentionally). If I can be honest, and this is probably not going to be liked by many of the community leaders, but I miss the fast money. The thrill of doing drug runs and other stuff has gone away for me and I dont really see or hear about people doing it much. I know that you guys would like more interactions and story building, but its pretty overwhelming to even begin a process and commit hours for a small payout. No, I dont think everyone criminal should be riding around in supercars, but it has to be somewhat rewarding. To be fair I haven't been around a lot lately and don't even know if there has been significant changes that affects this, so if it has been balanced better disregard this. P.S: Making bank is in some characters personalities, just ask mr @Paul Gale I would also like to say to the devs, not everyone knows how time consuming and difficult it is to do what you guys are doing. Don't take the "were not seeing progress" statements people make to heart. I do agree on being more transparent with the progress to the community, I don't really attend the meetings and would love to see whats happening behind the scenes on the forums. Since I have been here revo has had seasons in regards to activity. Im sure it is just a slow season. It is sad to see but rp can be pretty taxing at times and people take breaks, at least it is to me. Anywho I do appreciate all you guys have done and for bringing me hours upon hours of entertainment.

    My suggestion based on Floppy's response. Get together with people in the flight program to write up a proposal and submit it to staff. If staff has not come up with something already, then perhaps you can help get them started. Already a thing. I put out the patch notes for everyone so they know when something they've been wanting has finally become a thing. However, I don't appreciate when people read the patch notes and use that information immediately in game, without learning it organically. Sure, some things are "common sense" and "we should have always been able to do this" however, there's a huge difference between utilizing a feature immediately, and waiting until the RP situation calls for it. For example, say we put a new interior in Paleto hospital. Instead of making a beeline up there to look at it, wait until the RP takes you to the area, whether by chance or because you end up needing a hospital trip and you're closest to Paleto. Just because you are aware of a feature/mechanic being implemented, doesn't mean you need to use the knowledge of it ASAP. Let your discovery come organically. As Floppy said, already being done, and still ongoing. Instead of squeezing the server dry of high powered weapons, we're doing this slowly. Anytime we make a change to a feature that changes the balance, half of the community will say "that was completely unnecessary, they would do this" and the other half will say "it's about god damn time." We'll never please everyone with the decisions we make, but we're doing our best to make decisions based on the suggestions that are put out on the forums. Development is influenced by the community. The staff and owner, along with devs all discuss what the community is saying and doing, both on the forums, in voice channels, and in server. The decisions that are made take into account all of those factors. If the owner decides he wants to do something that other's aren't on board with, that's his right, however, the majority of the time, everyone discusses it and we make a collective decision and sometimes we just have to agree to disagree. Sometimes what the community says they want differ from the actions. For example, I told the community that we intended on bringing housing back this year as the first major project. However, after a month or so of trying to make that happen, we saw that everyone was kicking up the leasing/ownership of businesses (Benny's, VU, etc). That IG shift and how the RP was unfolding, influenced us to push housing aside and put business mechanics first. Yes, I'm sure everyone would be happy with being able to own businesses through the forums in the mean time, but the decision was made to focus our heart and soul on the mechanics of it and release something massive and complete. The actions of the community influenced that shift, not staff. We're doing our best to find people who abuse mechanics or break the rules, but we can only do and see so much. I've said this before and was met with a bit of sarcasm, but it's not that simple to find the abusers and remove them. We're constantly told "PD is abusing x" "crims are abusing y." It's at least something to know that we need to keep an eye out, but we can't punish anyone with that kind of information. Proof is also another issue, without proof, it's hard for them to take action. I'm not speaking for them on that matter, just stating that if things don't turn out the way you want, most of the time it's due to lack of proof. Don't be afraid to ask them why. Who (name/charid) What (what feature/what did they do) Where (where did you see this, in server or through a stream?) -- That is critical information for staff When (time/date) Proof (video is best. Send them anything and everything you have to support your claim) Those are the things staff needs to know in order to even attempt to investigate or take any action. Does this mean that we're not gonna give you guys a feature you want? No. Everything is subject to discussion and we will always remind the community that it's your duty to report anyone who breaks the rules or abuses a mechanic/feature. Help catch those who are ruining that feature for everyone so we can keep it.

    I haven't been in the community for the longest, probably for just around a month and joined because a couple friends got me into roleplaying again. After hopping across a few servers, I have noticed how under developed the server really is, (not to slate or say that you aren't doing good work) Alot of the core things people desire from these servers are freedom to do actual physical things and have NEW. I saw in a post that the custom cars were all taking out to increase server stability with the 64 player change, not once in my month of being here have I seen it tick past 53 players. There are so many features that other places offer, with the opportunity to get into that quickly and easily and with the current state of the roleplay I have experienced on the server its always going to gradually decline, if people aren't enjoying the roleplay anymore and then they ain't really got much besides a few cars cause the housing system and all sorts haven't been implemented, theirs nothing really keeping them here, since I've joined the server I've made a few friends not too many mainly cause I chose to play a particularly weird character (sorry to anyone that i've come across that way) haha. But everything that happens on the server (bad) usually gets taken out of context, and taken out of roleplay. Not to say names, but ooc i told my "gang" that I was going to be hopping some servers, just for change and to see how stuff is, and that I would still be around on Rev just waiting for general population to come back (considering it dont get busy until later EU times, meaning i would have to stay up till 3am to have any fun, where as during the day there would be 3 people on the server just grinding) and immediately got kicked from the gang even though in roleplay technically nothing happened. (not to throw shade); but anyway thats what i mean, the level of roleplay generally isn't super fantastic (myself included) nor is there really many people around to create a story with since most people already have that "group" and don't confide or go around town to create stories, most places have just been cliques i.e the people at bennies or the people who sit out legion, the gangs, rarely does there have any cross-play interaction with anyone without it having to be about some kind of gang related drama, instead of just creating stories and making friends with people. I also applied for the police on a seperate character, and theres almost 0 communication but if you look it says if you bother command or w/e about it they can kick you, like I'm just trying to have fun and roleplay and give the criminals during the day something to do or have risk involved with. I feel that although I'm sure the developers are hard at work and of course appreciate your time in what you're doing, there has to be levels of communication. We need to see common changes making it fun not only for cops but civs aswell since alot of the suggestions are just a way to better the cops recently. Cops is just a huge powerplay right now, don't think its fair to civs in any situation, especially when people pull you over with any excuse to strip search and all that or no leniency in roleplay to the fines or jail time, no matter how good/bad the roleplay is. The thing that is more irritating is that there is no way to do certain mechanics which is frequently used on roleplay servers such as restraints, robbing, transferring money, there are so many things I can think off but are being held back. If you look at my most recent suggestion I had made, it got denied because there are zipties ingame but broken, but the other half of it wasn't even replied to from last May or something from the post someone else had linked probably cause they know people will abuse it. People will abuse anything, that is the problem, but that shouldn't stop developers from doing what would genuinely make the server better for everyone instead of the abusers. People abuse = Ban, Especially like mentioned somewhere above about the carry system, if people are abusing it and the victim clearly not enjoying it or the level of roleplay from it, then take action. I think people take the rules too seriously, if the person is enjoying the interaction in roleplay whether its abuse or not, then what is the real problem? It's just very situational. I see a bunch of stuff about the corruption in the police too and I mean if the corruption is levelled with fun roleplay and not just giving guns and stuff to civs etc then why not? I.e doing something bad to someone your character is in a close Roleplay scenario with, like kidnapping them or w/e. Idk what these people are doing to be corrupt cause I don't pay attention to those things but Roleplay over Ruleplay any day. As long as its reasonable. What I recommend: Make the discord better; Over surfing through some places I see the most common point of interest around talking about anything is in discord. - A development category, Annoucement, Patch Notes, Teasers (Will help the community see whats going on) - Automated ticket systems - In character categorys, OOC categorys. -the incharacter stuff on other servers have twitter and instagram linked to the discord and can upload pictures ingame or tweet and it shows up in the discord which would be lit. More advertising of the servers, problem is theres barely an influx of new players and the server is just getting more and more quiet every day. Make polls, or a suggestion on discord to allow people to post what people may want. Discord is far more accessible to any living person then actively disputing things or being on the forums. (cheaper too if you're with a host). I rarely check the forums myself unless i got something to suggest or someone mentions it to me. Make it so when you make a character, you have to include your discord name or something similar so if people are breaking rules you can create a player report ticket or something and mention said user and talk it out privately instead of on posts. Listen to what the general population want, of course theirs exceptions but its hard to include everything that people want but some stuff you can clearly see everyone loves unless its a disadvantage to a faction. I'd suggest using more public assets of mods or different mechanics rather than all down to your own code, as much as it'd be cool to say you did everything and stuff, I think that server needs NEW to keep people busy. And most importantly to everyone, to have some fun, chill out, relax. It's a game, playing another character just enjoy yourself and give others around you a good time, thats what it's all about.

    Communication. By far the worst part of Revo in my many years playing here has been communication. This post is regarding all bullshit the player base has been forced to deal with, but this is where I draw the line. We have sat by and watched players go banned for DAYS at a time w/ 0 explanation. Not over voice, ooc message, or even a post on the forums. Yet we played on, having faith in the community here and the faces of the staff team who run it. This community has underwent an unbelievable amount of strain: hard wipes, loss of features & content, a growing tension within the playerbase itself, and a general attitude & atmosphere of "Don't like it? Play somewhere else." coming from the people in the positions that are supposed to drive this community forward. Ruby was the only admin that seemed to be taking steps towards resolving the issues we face AS A COMMUNITY. The only one trying to take our feedback and fight for us in a battle that shouldn't have to take place to begin with. My disappointment at this moment cannot be described. There is no other representative of staff that comes to mind that i would trust with my unfiltered opinion, without fear of eating a ban just for voicing what I feel is wrong with Revo. When we said we wanted change, this is the exact opposite of what we meant. There is so much more that I would put here but I am going to leave it at this: LISTEN to your community before they truly desert you. A lot of people have poured so much time and effort into making this place what it is today. Do not let that go to waste as things rot from the top, down. -Anon
