dead forever

Though for real once all the metafriends left nobody really ERP's anymore so it's not like we lost anything outside of admin fuckery, which likely gets tiring on the admin side due to deadchat screaming for blood and other various fluids.

are you kidding. some lizard player followed people around ALL ROUND for three or four rounds in a row trying to ERP and stripping, then started validing them when people got pissed off and took action into their hands.

There was like a week where we were flooded with lizards ERPing and then we weren't, hasn't really been a problem and removing it is pretty much a formality at this point.

Haven't really seen any good reasons for removing ERP (aside from the deadchat spam). Vital roles never ERP, and people don't ERP metabuddy every consequetive round so I'm not understanding this change.

It's good to see our headmins are making ~IMPORTANT DECISIONS~ about ~THINGS THAT ARE A CONCERN~ while nonissues like grudgecoding and HG being shit and the rules page being spaghetti are left completely unaddressed.

Seriously though literally why bother re-banning ERP it's not even a problem or anything

I couldn't care less about ERP it's just interesting that to bring back erp after the last time HG (who wasn't even an elected headmin) banned it on a whim, the playerbase had to: elect a pro-erp headmin, hold a forum poll, hold an in-game poll which run for a month or something, wait another month for the results to come in, then wait another month until ERP was officially reinstated. At least this time you can't say "well the players obviously don't want ERP, that's why we're banning it"

Bluespace is right.

Grazyn is also right, banning ERP has always been a quick process, rules wise, whereas unbanning it has always been a month upon month slog.

Here's an idea. Have one last vote on ERP, using the proper poll system. Let everyone vote on whether they want it, then agree to accept the result and leave the fuck alone instead of playing this retarded game of ping pong that happens every few months.

I can't tell if you're joking but the players already voted to unban ERP back in september/october, using the in-game poll system. At this point it's better not to make another pointless poll and waste people's time, just accept the fact that ERP is banned/unbanned depending on the headmins

This is all a trick so I can run on an "unban erp" platform next term.

EDIT: I'm honestly surprised that more people care about this than ban requests being closed. Nobody ERPd anymore anyway.

Ban requests was closed for good reasons whereas closing it because "Nobody ERP'd anymore anyway" is arbitrary.

ERP died out for a number of reasons, but if I had to point to any one in particular its because anyone who'd ERP knew that there was one admin or another waiting to smash the gib button the moment they were both on a bed. Why would anyone ERP when the "ERP is valid to admins" clause was being used to make it effectively banned by admins who wished to discourage it wholesale?

If anything I'd rather see it valid to players than admins. It'd certainly be more exciting to see an IC lynching than safe sex juggernaut #3000 or just another gibbing.

That would be a decent solution if players had any way to know if it was going on at all. I think it would be VERY satisfying for admins to lock players down who ERP using magic and then make an announcement about it. Watch as hordes of people come in and beat the shit out of the ERPers.

EDIT: I'm honestly surprised that more people care about this than ban requests being closed. Nobody ERPd anymore anyway.

Ban requests was closed for good reasons whereas closing it because "Nobody ERP'd anymore anyway" is arbitrary.

ERP died out for a number of reasons, but if I had to point to any one in particular its because anyone who'd ERP knew that there was one admin or another waiting to smash the gib button the moment they were both on a bed. Why would anyone ERP when the "ERP is valid to admins" clause was being used to make it effectively banned by admins who wished to discourage it wholesale?

If anything I'd rather see it valid to players than admins. It'd certainly be more exciting to see an IC lynching than safe sex juggernaut #3000 or just another gibbing.


I think it's valid to players. Admins just take the initiative.

I've been specifically admin PMed NOT to kill two ERPers I found in dorms after I ahelped it. Note that no admin took action against them and I was forbidden to kill them either. This was a few months ago.

Note that in four games in a row, two of which I played, a lizard player repeatedly coerced others to ERP with them by, at roundstart getting a sex change then running around naked pushing the topic of "lizard tits" into their faces.

Note that in one incident of this, this player followed someone around until they retaliated. So they escalated this by screaming for security, then proceeding to screwdriver the retaliating player's eyes and killing them.

Note that also, I became victim to this whereas I was going to kill them.

I'm not going to escalate it into a ban request because the section is closed down, and the die has been cast (ERP is banned). If you want to repeal this policy and have this player banned because you don't like this policy change, PM me for their ckey.

Otherwise, I see this as a change that removes an otherwise disturbing aspect of the game, and one that has been abused to enable others to escalate conflicts to ruin others rounds.
