So let's break this down real quick because I'm honestly really tired of talking about it.

It was requested that we clarify the DM rule in light of some recent warns. The admin team talked about it and realized we weren't really on the same page anymore, so we had a meeting in TS and came up with the following clarification or requirements or whatever you want to call it.

After that, a lot of misinformation and misinterpretation happened. David and Charlie905 were the biggest pushers of this so I invited them into a forum PM along with Tommy_Jones and Clarke to ask for examples of what they thought was wrong with the clarification. David participated, Charlie did not, and here's a record of the conversation.

Hi folks!

Just a quick clarification on the topic of hiding weapons on your back with bag toys.

If you can hide the whole weapon on your back with one bag toy, that's perfectly acceptable.

Using two bag toys to hide a weapon is not acceptable and will be deemed non-RP behavior. The first time this is observed, the admin will give you one chance to make the change; after that, it's a warning.

In case you're not sure what using two bags looks like, here's an example:

Statuses and likes have been disabled for about an hour now and it's already driving me up the wall. I love checking in on the forums and see what's going on, what's happening, what people are saying and doing. With statuses disabled, the forums seem as still as the grave and nobody wants that.

So why were they disabled? A small group of people decided they were going to push the admin team as much as they could, just to see who would "break" and when. That same group also decided to troll one of our players and, in doing so, spam out anything unrelated to their stupidity. I've never seen so many forum warns handed out in such a small amount of time. There was also a fairly large likefarm circlejerk going on amongst that group, constantly posting and reposting on each others walls for spam and likes.

It would be great if we could avoid going back to that sort of behavior when statuses and likes come back. It would be a real shame if an hour of no statuses or likes turned into a whole weekend.

If you're saying to yourself that you didn't do anything, that's possibly very true, unfortunately the actions of a few can greatly affect the innocent majority. You can help avoid situations like this from arising by telling those around you to knock it off

And no, contrary to what some people have said, this has nothing to do with genuine "happy birthday" wishes being given to somebody on their birthday.
Good morning / afternoon everybody!

Just a few quick notes about bandanas and gas masks:

1.) Wrapping a bandana around the lower part of your face isn't going to do anything against PD tear gas. Tear gas mostly works by affecting the tear glands, aka your eyes, so unless you're wandering around with the bandana around your eyes there's no argument there; if you want to say that the bandana is wrapped around your eyes, well, now you're blind and in worse shape than before. Tear gas also affects the lungs and there's no way that a thin piece of cloth is going to magically protect your from all harmful effects, that's like saying a piece of paper can protect you from a blast of water from a fire hose.

2.) "But I have a gas mask!" No you don't. Los Santos isn't in the middle of a war so why are there suddenly a huge number of gas masks floating around? This isn't 1940s wartime England, this is 2015 Los Angeles. It's time for our playerbase to start roleplaying with a sense of reality and to stop trying to pull out every single excuse possible to win at roleplay every chance they get.

If you have actually invested time and roleplay into getting gas masks, you should probably show that somewhere so the admin team, and the playerbase in general, doesn't get the idea that you pulled them out of your ass when you saw the PD breaking down your door.

Claiming that you have a magical bandana that blocks all effects of tear gas or pulling a gas mask out of your ass will be considered non-RP behavior and punished as such.
Hey gang!

It's July 1st which means it's time for the MTG:RP summer update! Well, almost time. Since the summer update contains the code for the July 4th festivities, we're actually going to update late at night on July 3rd. It's only a couple days delay but I'm sure you'll somehow find the will to go on living.

What's all in the update? Glad you asked! Click here to find out!! One thing to note: it was previously mentioned that we would be making changes to the way house storage works. Well, good news and bad news: the bad news is that it's been delayed due to some time issues that came up; the good news is that the dev team is going to release it as soon as it's ready instead of waiting until October 1st. Apologies to everybody!

As usual, the dev and admin team will be hosting an AUA event in TS to talk about the new update and just hang out with the community in general. This will be taking place on Saturday July 4th at 5 PM London time. Click here to find out when that will be taking place for you.

Last but certainly not least, here's an awesome video made by Earl for the summer update. Thanks everybody and have a great day!

Hey folks! Gosh, what a weekend it's been, there was a bunch of hilarity on the forums and it was great fun to joke around with everybody.

Just two quick clarifications for you to take note of:

1.) /rp is meant to be used to convey roleplay (IC actions) over a long distance, typically things like sniper fire. It is not, however, meant to be used as a replacement for IC communication such as SMS texting. Recent changes were made to SMS, namely that it's obvious when you receive or send one and the fact that they can be read if your phone is stolen, and the admin team will not tolerate players attempting to bypass these changes by using /rp instead; oh, and calling it "email" instead of SMS won't change anything. Using /rp instead of SMS will result in a punishment for abusing the /rp command.

2.) "/me pops" is not roleplay. "/me clacks" is not roleplay. "/me drops a cop" or "/me executes a cop" is not roleplay and is actually borderline, if not actual, powergame. I think that's pretty obvious to anybody who spends more than five seconds thinking about it.

Thanks!
Happy Friday!

Just a quick post to detail some of the upcoming changes to MTG:RP.

/nmute and /vmute warn appeals
- Currently you need to wait four months before you can appeal an nmute/vmute warning and have had no previous warnings for the last three months.
- Starting today, you need to wait two months before you can appeal the warning and have had no previous warnings for the last two months.
- The admin team still feels that this is a fairly ridiculous warning to get in the first place which is why the time requirements involved are higher than other types of warnings.

House storage
- Currently every house has 50 storage slots.
- When the next major update happens, each house will start off with 20 slots per $100,00 of base price. This means that the cheapest house ($250,000) will have 40 slots whereas a $1,000,000 house will have 200 slots.
- Additional storage slots will be purchasable via in-game command at a price of $2000 per slot up to a maximum of double your base storage. A $250,000 house that starts with 40 slots can be upgraded to 80 slots whereas a $1,000,000 house can go from 200 slots to 400 slots.

Official gangs / arms dealer job
- Currently the arms dealer job is the only requirement for high-end weapons and armour.
- When the next major update happens, ranks 8 through 10 of the arms dealer job will be locked behind official gangs. This means that only official gangs can make the M4, the sniper rifle, the combat shotgun and body armour. If there are no official gangs, there will be no new high-powered weapons.
- Which types of body armour (poor, good, great) that will be locked to official gangs is still being decided.

Drugs
- Currently a drug crate will drop anywhere between 3 and 20 days.
- When the next major update happens, that will change to anywhere between 1 and 3 days.
- The admin team will continue to monitor the situation and make changes as necessary.

Dropping cars / mats
- Currently the...
I'm going to start off by saying that this sort of thing will not happen every time somebody gets banned as it's usually unnecessary. But since there are a number of questions floating around, not to mention misinformation, some transparency should hopefully put this to rest.

Some of you may recall an AMA-style discussion that Trippy had in TS a couple of weeks ago. Afterwards he summarized the topics that were brought up and this was one of them.

Both before and after this session in TS, the admin teams have been talking and trying to figure a way to deal with the growing toxicity on the forums. Sometimes you have to remove people from the community in order to best serve the community. Some members were informed that they were on their last chance and that any further negative/toxic behavior would result in permabans. That's how people like brett_shaw and SpasmedMonkey got shown the door.

A couple of days ago the admin team started discussing what to do with a group of players that, while they had been positive and supportive members in the past, were currently contributing nothing but toxicity and negativity and it was having a very visible effect on players around them. The idea was to give them the same final warning and then let them determine their own destiny.

However, that all changed when it was discovered that these players had stolen personal pictures of a community member and were modifying them in disgusting ways and spreading them around for cheap laughs. Typically that sort of behavior carries a...
