Steelpoint wrote:/tg/ being the "ERP Server" was imo more of a buzz word thrown around on the old forums during that whole ERP discussion debacle.

I've personally never seen /tg/ refferd to as a ERP server outside of the TG forums


Ah, good. So us being "That ERP server" is a scapegoat.

GOOD
just play on /vg/station, go have fun for christs sake

I've seen /tg/ touted as "the erp server" alot in the /vg/ general threads. even if those threads are just shitflinging dramafests it still colors peoples perceptions.

New players who see the thread will think /tg/ is the server you go to jerk your dick to your lesbian domination fantasies was my point. The threads being shitholes is irrelevant.

We've already had a whole discussion on antags being forced to antagonize or be antag banned and it's pretty much entirely agreed upon that you should untick if you don't want to play antag and you want to erp all round

Do you really want to play with people who are both foolish enough to take /vg/'s word, and not find out for themselves that the amount of ERP you will actually witness is practically none? Or those that are thin skinned enough to get upset about it and write paragraph after paragraph bad mouthing it?

Prove that those people exist. You can't - it's inherently unprovable. If there was a problem with no new players joining you might have a case, but at least on Sibyl we regularly see 70+ people playing in any given round.

I'm not even going to look through this topic because, based on the last few posts, it's just a bunch of shitflinging.
So I'll just throw out my opinion.
ERP should be banned.

Keep erp unbanned. In my opinion erp situation should be handled as such:
1) Ghosts don't like hearing it? Turn fucking ghost ear off and float the fuck away
2) Players don't wanna stubble across it/see it? If you so happen to walk in on people erping do the same thing you would do irl, close the door and walk the fuck away.Or ask to join
3) Admins are unhappy that they are forced to see it? Handle the situation properly. Is it two people in important positions ignoring their jobs? Bwoink them and give them a warning about erping over actually working. Is it an antag using erp for assassination? Do nothing and enjoy the laughs whether the plan works or not. I'd it two people just erping for the fuck of it? Bring down the shenanigans upon them. Tl;dr- Ignore it if antag are using it for creative kills and only use non lethal shenanigans if the people in question are in important positions of power. Or don't,we can replace them.

Pretty much my opinion is summed up as erp is here for the purpose of getting the most hilarious kills, but should be moderated to a degree so that people would rather do their jobs then erp.

I don't understand why people go out of their way so hard to find ERPers just to be "disgusted" or to make it a "lolvalid" when they are keeping it private; hidden away in mining dorms/some long lost maint. tunnel/etc. If some people privately ERPing people get walked in on or messed with by admins, it's more awkward to them then others usually.

It's tradition to fuck with ERPers. Be that you're an admin or a player it's your duty as a space denizen to seek them out and then dish out cold hard space love.

Think about it, all the admins see LOOC. You get people ERPing with LOOC enabled; inevitably you'll start seeing questions about penis size, fetishes, etc. being posed in LOOC.

i think it should be allowed if you arent ruining anyones round. if your locking people up and bedcuffing them every fucking round then yeah thats retarded. but if ur like me and you just fuck someones ass real quick and walk off i think it should be k. anyone who gets upset at "big faggot thrusts" in chat is pretty much a permaNERD.

One of my favorite things to do during late night snooze fest rounds is to interrupt/mess with ERPers. Don't take that from me.

It leads to me playing detective throughout the halls, a stolen forensic's scan in one hand and my wits in the other. Alice Jackson, I will find you, you won't enjoy it, but I will find you.

Inversely, nothing is more wonderful than seeing what sorts of shenanigans people can come up with. I've seen a guy get off of being arrested for being a ling because he was pretending to be touching the body erotically in the bathroom.

No HoS wants to deal with that.
