    Scoops's Moderator Application In-Game Name: [Scoops♞] Age: [18] Timezone: [EST] Steam ID: [STEAM_0:0:61515392] Steam Profile (Link): https://steamcommunity.com/id/flux1101/ Hours on the server: [470] https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1694331636 Times Active: [2-3 Hours Mon-Fri | 5+ Hours Sat & Sun] Why I want/should be a moderator: [I was a moderator before and I will admit I was demoted for inactivity but that was due to a unexpected crisis. I am much more available now and still want to help make Retribution RP fun and enjoyable for everyone! After coming back and starting to be very active again I have noticed the short supply of staff during the hours I'm on and I feel like I can really be a big help.] Have you read the rules fully, understand them and are wanting to enforce them as correctly as possible?: [Yes] Are you willing to listen to any Staff member chosen to mentor and guide you as a Staff, even if you feel you don't need to?: [Yes] Are you able to Staff actively on the server for several hours a week?: [Yes] SITUATIONS: The server begins to lag and players are complaining about prop spam: [First I'll freeze all props and check the logs for prop spam. If I see excessive spawning of props I will freeze that player and teleport to them to assess the situation. If they are truly spamming props I will ban them and clear dc props to get rid of the lag.] People begin to complain about an "illegal base": [I will go to the base and bring the owner and explain to him where and how his base is illegal. I will then offer advice as to how to fix the base. I will continue to check on this person until their base is up to the !motd standards.] You see another staff member abusing his/her powers: [If I saw a staff abusing their powers and they were higher ranking than me I would first confront them in game as to see why they are doing so. If they stop I will let it go then but still advise a higher up of the situation. If they continue to abuse I will immediately try and get a higher up involved or give out a punishment myself if I have the ability to.] A player is extremely uncooperative during a sit: [If a player has a question about their punishment I will explain it to them. If they disagree with their punishment but do no insult me or other players I will simply ignore it. If they insult me or another player because of their punishment I will add to their punishment for insulting staff/other players.] A player is excessively RDMing/RDAing and breaking NLR: [RDM(Random Death Match): Killing someone with no RP reason. | RDA(Random Arrest): Arresting someone with an RP reason to do so. | NLR(New Life Rule): The idea that you can't go back to where you died for 5 minutes and that you can't act on previous RP life experiences.] (Additional Comments): [As I said before I was a moderator about 3 months ago and I enjoyed doing it. I simply had something come up that required my full attention which caused me to turn my back on Ret. While I don't plan on taking such a long break like that again, when I can't be as active as normal I will make sure to contact a higher up or make a forum post explaining the situation.]

Reminder that this all takes place in our Discord, I’ll put a link along with the rules on a reply below this. We’ll either be playing minigames or vanilla survival; no mods though. hope to see you all there!

    Need help? Contact a staff member in-game by typing @ and a short message! Staff members have the final say and their decisions are final even if not stated in the rules. If a player feels any outcomes/punishment(s) delivered were unsatisfactory they have the right to ask for a different staff member. Players may also contact a higher up or make an appeal/complaint following the proper layout on the forums! Join our Discord!: https://discord.gg/UNcPmw2 Join Our Steam Group!: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/retributiondarkrp or by typing !steam in-game General Rules No Politics, NSFW content, or malicious behavior towards and community members. No advertising other servers, websites, or communities. No hacking, manipulation of the client, or exploiting. No leaving/fleeing to avoid staff situations. No inappropriate names. Names require at least 3 English characters. No scamming or gambling. Do NOT force uncomfortable situations on anyone. Do not wrongfully disrupt others’ RP. Admin-land is off limits to all non-staff members unless given permission by a staff member. Do NOT enter staff sits unless you are directly brought. No flags/symbols from any culture/religion/country etc. The only exception to this are staff-approved RP environments. Basic Rules Players may not perform random deathmatch/arrest (RDM/RDA). Warns must be clear, given in local chat, and give 10 seconds before the victim is shot. EX: A player is following another player. The player being followed must give one warning in local chat, wait 10 seconds, and if the follower persists, they may shoot. After a player dies, they must wait five minutes before returning to the situation/location that the player died at. (NLR) A victim of a hit may return to where they died. Players may not interact with the situation/players that killed them. Players may not abuse props/entities. EX: Using entities to kill players. EX: Propsurf, propblock, propspam. Players may not use mass RP binds, all binds must specify one action. EX: A player uses advert and says "RAID/PD RAID/COUNTER RAID/KIDNAPPING/MUG" Wanted Players may only kill police in self-defense. Players may steal the money from and destroy bitminers, but CANNOT take the entity itself. Players with job model shoulders smaller than a 1x1 plate while holding keys cannot raid, mug, kidnap, or defend a base. FailRP is not roleplaying properly. A player's character should always obey their limits, and not do something that obviously could not realistically happen. EX: Police officer is basing with a gang of thieves and is printing money in their base EX: Gun dealer is raiding the police department The cinema and the island always RP-only. Hits, Kidnap, and Mugs. Hit Rules: Players/parties may not repeatedly target players. Players may complete hits in RP-only bases if they don’t have to break down any world/fading doors to reach their target. Kidnapping Rules: Victims must follow the kidnapper's demands, and do what they say; players may escape captivity by means of reasonable RP. Kidnappers may not force their victims to spawn items. Players may only be held hostage for 15 minutes. Kidnapped players may not kill themselves while kidnapped. Mugging Rules: Parties/players must give a local chat message that a victim is being mugged, with a maximum amount of $20,000. You can mug one victim once per 5 minutes, and once per 10 mins for the same player. The victim has 10 seconds to comply. The victim must be let go if they comply with their mugger's demands. Party Rules If players are within a party together, they must base together. Only the members of a party may protect each other in all RP scenarios. Players may not party abuse. Party members cannot steal, raid, mug, kidnap, or place hits on other party members. Joining a party --> Gaining access --> Leaving party --> Raiding Basing Rules * Applicable to RP-Only * Not Applicable to RP-Only General Rules: Individuals or groups may own one building and must own every door in that building.* if a situation occurs where more than one person owns doors in a building, whoever owns the "front-doors" gains ownership of the building. No roof bases unless there is direct access built into the building. (Example: Hotel, Building next to PD) * Players/parties may not mega-base or have bases that extend unnecessarily upwards or outwards. * Players may have a KOS line + sign outside the entrance of their base. It must be noticeable. No tiny letters or hard to see colors.* You may not KOS people who are on public property (sidewalk, street, etc.) Sewer system bases may not base-in/block-off passageways.* Apartments/hotels may only have one player/party per suite. Hotel Managers may own entire hotels to sell suites to their customers. * Raidable Base requirements: (Bases must be clear and concise) Fading Door Rules: Shooting Window Rules: RP-Only Rules Players may add an RP-Only text screen on their base if they wish to roleplay. This disallows having raidables. Players may have a KOS sign but it has to be reasonable. Acceptable KOS sign (KOS behind counter) Unacceptable KOS sign (KOS on sidewalk) Gun dealers, Club Owners, Black Market Dealers and any other merchant-like jobs can have RP-only signs/bases preventing them from being raided as long as they have no raidables and if they are selling products, their product is strictly only spawned in to be sold and not kept in their base. You may not initiate mugs in RP only Zones. RP Building owners/party members do not follow NLR when the death occurred inside their RP-Only base. If the Owner of the RP-Only building asks you to leave with a valid reason, you must oblige. Building Signs Players may add Building signs to their base to keep players from raiding whilst building. You CAN prop-block your entrances. You CAN have a KOS sign. You CANNOT have ANY form of raidables. You CANNOT put a building sign up with or without propblock to avoid RP situations such as escaping police. You CANNOT place a building sign if a player is currently initiating a raid. Wait until at least 5 minutes after the raid has ended. Raiding Rules Defender Rules: Attacker Rules: Raidables: Here is a list of what is considered a 'raidable' Police Department Police may not do any illegal activities or corruption. Police may own a building but only for the RP effect. Police may ONLY break NLR for PD raids. PD may have 1 defense or 1 roadblock that consists of 2 fading doors which may be double stacked. Police defenses must abide by the basing rules. Police defenses do not have to be wide enough for two people to stand side by side. Police can build a roadblock. Roadblocks must be approved by an Admin. During a lockdown, police must give players one warning in local chat with 10 seconds to get inside a building. Police may not KOS for being outside during a lockdown. They may AOS only. The front door to PD may NOT be locked unless a PD Raid or Lockdown is in progress. The back-entrance which leads to jail cells may not be prop-blocked but can have 2 fading doors to protect it which do not count towards other max-fading doors in the PD. Along with this, being inside or tampering with the tunnel that leads to the cells is AOS/KOS. Police cannot use vents as their only entrance to the PD. PD lobby is considered public property and may not contain defenses. Police may only AOS/KOS after one warning unless their life is in immediate danger. This only applies to in-game laws, base-laws that are on the MOTD can be AOS without warning. Base Laws All laws stated below are in action with or without a mayor. The mayor cannot change any of these laws excluding rule #4. Mayor Law Rules The mayor may not discriminate against a specific job (Ex. Making Hobos KOS). The mayor may not make laws that restrict a player’s right to speech, movement, or their abilities to use cosmetics. No J-walking, crouching/walking/running, etc laws. No bans on player cosmetics such as hats, trails, or emotes. The mayor may not allow random weapon checks unless in PD. The mayor MUST advert/broadcast/announce the reason for a lockdown as well as warn players to return to their homes (Excessive shooting, life in danger, PD raid. etc) The Mayor may approve the construction of ONE toll booth for police (Counts as a roadblock). The roadblock must be approved by an Administrator. Lockdowns/Curfews may go on for a max of 10 minutes. Mayor Commands: Warrant Rules The reasons for warrants can include: The police officer saw illegals/illegal activities. A player is wanted inside the base the officer is warranting. The police officer was notified that a player was being held hostage inside the base. The contraband scanner issued a warrant for a player. Real-world Trading Real-world trading for any items on RetributionRP will result in a permanent ban for both players involved. Any items players sell for out of game currencies will be flagged as “Illegal Goods” and removed from the game. Players CAN: Trade in-game items for other in-game items, even if those in-game items are purchased off of the store. Give other players free in-game items. Players CANNOT: Advertise selling/buying in-game items for out of game currency and vice-versa. Trade in-game items for out of game currencies and vice-versa. Encourage others to break this rule. Trading In-game Items When trading in-game weapons, it will be assumed that the weapon you're discussing is a permanent weapon unless specified otherwise. (E.g: 'Selling a ocelot shotgun' = 'Selling a permanent ocelot shotgun') If you want to sell singles of temporary weapons you must specify they are temporary/non permanent, failing to do this will be taken as scamming and is punishable. It is suggested to wait until a Staff member is available to monitor a trade for the most safety when trading, if no Staff member is on remember you can always hold-off the trade! Trading in-game items is a completely out of RP experience, where you're no longer in Downtown - you are two people trading virtual items. With this in mind you need to remember the following: You CAN: Prop-block off an area to complete your trade. Ask for a Staff's assistance to monitor the trade (They're not obliged to, however). Trade cash for items and vice-versa using tip-jars, cheque (it is not suggested to use Cash, however you are not disallowed to). Back out of a trade UNTIL someone has picked up the others item, once you've picked up any item of the other users you have locked in the deal and must complete the trade fully. You CANNOT: Have raidables in the propblocked area. (Permanent items dropped for a trade do not count as raidables). Prop-block the area for any longer than 10 minutes. Prop-block an area that interrupts others RP experience. Steal from and/or scam the other users interacting in the trade, if caught stealing/scamming the items will be taken back from you plus compensation and a possible ban. (If you're caught dispensing the stolen items/money into a mule account you will be permanently banned no questions asked.) Job Rules Read more about the current job rules in game, on the F4 menu!
