  1. I'm not locking the thread. I think you all have legitimate concerns. I think there are multiple areas of the APD that could use improvement. Unfortunately I do not have all the answers and I am not in control of the APD.
  2. lol its probably me tbh
  3. UN-blacklisting members is not my area. That's something you should talk to captains about. People do dumb stuff on the APD they get removed. All the good players do dumb stuff and get removed then that's on you guys. Not sure the APD wants to unblacklist "good" players for the sake of winning if its going to cause more headache watching you all 24/7 or deal with the reports or possibly re blacklisting people. But again not my area maybe you all can talk to the captains.
  4. This only applies to vehicles that have entered than left the federal reserve. To my understanding after talking with the captains it will only be for after vehicles have left the fed. Like I said it will be monitored.
  5. Really only going to be used in extreme circumstances I hope. As of recent the Federal reserves have been successful 100 percent of the time by CEO driving around 5-8 iffrits. I hope this is not going to be abused and used against small groups or gangs trying to break into end game content for the first time. It is also rare to see captains on at all times of the day and even if there will only be ever 1 really. It will be monitored and we will see how it goes. Also there is a 30 second timer now to seize and they are stuck in 1 spot unable to move. I would think there is quite a bit of counter play that can be done. Policies can always change as well if it is not something that will work out in the long run.
  6. If a player complies and does what you ask, that does not give you the right to still kill them. You need to have a legit RP reason why they must still die and not having any money when you rob them is not enough. This includes people who are in restraints and have complied. Clarification :You cannot kill people who are restrained without an RP reason who have complied.
  7. Right now a CM has quite a few responsibilities and unless you are on the staff side of things it isn't super clear or spelled out. Ill list a few of the responsibilities we have now and maybe that might clear it up a bit. First and foremost we are here to be the line of communication between staff and the community. This includes being active and visible in game as well as on the forums to keep you guys involved as much as possible. I myself need to do better at this and is something I am working on. Next we are the barrier between Mitch and the admin team. We are all a team on staff but as most people are aware whenever they are not happy with an admins decision they end up jumping straight to Mitch. Me and Leady are here to help mitigate that as much as possible so that Mitch can focus on other server related issues. Me and Leady try and filter out as much as we can unless it needs to go to Mitch. This includes but is not limited to, being second opinions on admin/mod reports, promoting people to support staff and moderators. Working with the APD/AFD on policy updates to make sure nothing is game breaking, whitelisting players for VPN use, being proactive in networking with other communities to reduce the amount of cheaters. Etc. We have quite a long list of responsibilities and we found that it is alot for Just Leady and Mitch alone to handle. Hopefully I can help reduce the stress and continue doing good work for the community. While it is not always shown or made public even in my time of "inactivity" I have always been committed to this server and will continue to do so. This server has given me more than just entertainment after work and I just want to be able to give back to it as much as I can. Some of the people I met here 5 years ago have become real life friends. Some of which I make annual trips to go see. I have never played a game before where I have formed this good of relationships with the people I have met. If I did not care for this community I would not have been chosen for CM. I would hope anyone who thinks differently would be open to come sit down and talk with me to get to know me. Hopefully this answers your question.
  8. Hello everyone, I have been selected to become a Community Manager. My role is to be an active part of the community both in game and on the forums. I have been here for roughly 5 years with about 7,300 hours in Arma which is 95 percent on Asylum. The rest on KOTH and the campaign. For those of you who do not know me I am one of the best helicopter pilots on the server. I would consider myself a career rebel as I have only ever made it to CPL on the APD. I do try and balance it out as much as I can but there is something about trolling cops that puts a smile on my face. I am not that great at cartels or shooting in general but I love to mess around and have fun. I have only ever been in 1 gang throughout my time on Asylum which is Drunk Squad. If you have any questions please feel free to hit up my discord or find me in teamspeak. PM me about anything. If you want to chat or just get to know me my door is always open. I am here for you guys when you need me. Best wishes -Mason
  9. I will make an announcement so it is clear to everyone there is another CM to help out. I'm sure Mitch and Leady could use some help with their discords blowing up constantly
  10. I just became CM 4 days ago lol I should say that's what I used to be doing to explain why I was not in game as much. As for updates we could make posts on the forums letting you guys know about progress etc. It most likely wont be weekly however as the development team is busy and it is a volunteer position and updates take time. Is there something else you would like to be updated on?
  11. I've been on almost every day since I became a CM. Both on Civ and Cop. I do not have as much free time to play as not only am I dealing with player reports, comp requests, bug reports, looking through the logs etc but have real life as well, work, volunteer program, family etc. I make as much time as I can for the community. I also did the last 2 rounds of support staff and mod selections with Leady. If you want a real answer as to what we do (or at least my idea of a CM) is one who is actively engaging in the community both in game and on the forums. I could make a better presence on the forums and I have made a constant effort to be in game more. Basically we are the filter between Mitch and the admins. If you do not agree with the admins decisions, feel free to come to me and Leady. You are always more than welcome to come talk to me at any time in teamspeak when you see me. Just poke me and ask to talk. Most people do not take the time to talk or get to know anyone. They just make assumptions and create forum posts such as this one. I have been in this community for roughly 5 years and after 7,352 hours I think breaks are needed. So while you are correct it was roughly a month I had not played the game It was good to step back for a while. I agree that people who are inactive should not hold the spot but while I was inactive in game I was very active on the admins side of things. Again if you ever want to talk hit me up on discord or find me in teamspeak. I would be happy to answer any questions you have.
  12. Welcome! Hope you enjoy your time here. I would recommend joining a gang after reading the rules. Find one that best suits you. Safety in numbers https://www.gaming-asylum.com/forums/index.php?/forum/44-gang-recruitment/
