Amidst the current thread that @LodedDiper made, it got me thinking, and I am so sick of this server.
For one, I agree with LodedDiper with the fact this server is not beginner friendly, at all, and that largely has to do with the community. For example, not so long ago I was observing nukies fail at assaulting the station. People in dead chat were like “oh why don’t they just do such and such” and spamming “flukies”. I mentioned they might be new, to which I got the reply “if you are new don’t play nukies”.
Now this really hit me the wrong way. You need to play a role to learn it, by not choosing that role you will not learn it, therefore never playing said role. I have never learned science because I am worried about getting griefed for not knowing what to do, which I have seen before.
Another big reason is the double standard with the rules. Apparently CE piggybacking someone while doing the SM is fine, mime tiding into everywhere is OK because they are mime, Felinids spamming nya because “its their race”, uploading silly laws is great because it doesn’t harm anyone, and lynching the viro as soon as there is a virus is expected. But as soon as someone says “based” once, oh no, thats a perma ban.
I don’t understand what the admins count as RP. Sometimes they let greytiders wordlessly break into places while bwoinking you the second you compromise with an antag in a tense situation. It’s gotten so bad that I have not bothered RPing lately and just been annoying as clown. Because whats the point if no one else is bothering?
And people are just like, report the non rpers. I do, and I either get the response “so?” or “looking into it” and don’t get an answer.
And that brings me to my final bit, Crossed, I like you, but why on earth are you against adding character flavour text?
Llol and NotAShark, you two seem to be the only two admins here that care about RP, so good on you. (apologies, this seemed kinda harsh. I know all admins try very hard, but these are the two I had noticed.)
I would like to request a permaban from the server. And before you say this is not an airport, I have friends here who I would rather not think “I wonder what happened to that anti-Felinid guy”.
Thank you to all that try to RP, I am sad I will never get to play my beloved Grod again, but theres no point when there is no RP on a RP server.
Donk Bonk has honked his last honk
EDIT- Reading all these comments has made me realise there is still a good community underneath all the flaws, with great people, so maybe I will be back some day. Thank you all for your kind comments, but for now i’m gonna take a break from the server.
