This is the core of the discussion, and something I've yet to see the admins do. Its just a matter of not personally liking it, should that be a reason to remove it? I think not.



Pull your fingers out of your ears or other orifices and read what admins are actually posting. You don't see people posting things because you're selectively choosing not to read it.


You've yet to proove anything. Saying meta is caused by ERP is a shitty excuse and you know it.

YOU GOTTA FIGHT

FOR YOUR RIGHT

TO EEEEERP


In all honesty, this is probably gonna make rapey shit easier to enforce 'cause at least those responsible won't be able to duck behind "I thought they were into it" when the person on the receiving end doesn't instantly ahelp, robust the shit out of them, or whatever.

As a faggot who joined at the crux of server 2 metagangs, erp was almost soley responsible for the attitude on there between people helping their metafriends out and shit. Not saying that all the cliques erp'd, but one of the reasons server 2 was populated in the first place is because it had a pretty strong following of regulars who erp'd. They also REGULAR roleplayed more than most players, which is nice, but their attitude towards their buttbuddy being attacked by swarming the person who attacked them whether they were in the wrong or not was absolute cancer.

The worst metabuddies were almost always ERPers. Dante and Dalta smith for example.

Meta caused by ERP leads to a bit of a slippery slope of rp causing meta. Metafriendship is caused by RP regardless of it is ERP or regular RP. From my experience the ban will cause more drama, then ERP itself has from my experience. It was a bit of a shitty change




>ERP being the impetus for the barroom metagroup that resulted in numerous permabans

Any RP will cause this. The fact that ERP was the most roleplaying sybil and basil had is the reason for association with barroom metagame. And what the fuck is the point of banning ERP if we can ban people actually metafriending. Like fuck most of my bans for metafriendship arent even caused by an ERP backround.

>ERP being the impetus for the previous headministration crumbling

Lolwhat

>ERP being the root cause of metacooperation circlejerks in the first place

Yeah the RP part of it.


>ERP being unwanted and disgusting to other players who don't think it's the height of internet comedy

There is erp that crosses the line but fuck this is another bullshit reason that I have yet to see being an issue.

Meh.

People who metacommunicate using ERP does not make ERP the cause of metacommunication. Why is this even a argument?

It's not only metacommunication, it's literal 'back off from my space waifu' tier stupidity where you can be a traitor and have everyone lynch your target because you said he attacked you and had an esword, or you are spacing his corpse and they think nothing of it because you said he attacked you. You could get anyone to believe anything just on the basis that they didn't want to break the ~IC TRUST~ between you and your fucking buttbuddy that you /me to death in the dorms.

No it doesn't? If anything ERP exacerbated what already existed, so removing it was a good idea. Yes, it will always exist with RP buddies protecting each other, but ERP buddies were another breed of fucking retarded. See: durkel/fuzzle
