    In-Game Name: SugarMuch Age: 19 Timezone: EST Steam ID: STEAM_0:1:42791355 Steam Profile (Link): https://steamcommunity.com/id/SugarMuch/ Hours on the server: 404 hours Times Active: I normally get on depending on when I wake up, around 1PM est or even earlier but plan on spending 2-5hours on the server a day Why I want/should be a moderator: I just really feel the need to help out with a server I love. I've been mod before, I think I did a good job when I was mod. Also nothing wrong with an extra pair of hands. 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 To keep your Staffing position you are required at least 7 hours a week of in-game activity, can you meet this?: Yes SITUATIONS: The server begins to lag and players are complaining about prop spam: [How can you find the source of the prop spam? How do you determine what is or isn't prop spam?] I'd first freeze all props, then proceed to check the logs and see who is spawning an excessive amount of props, TP to them and check it out. If they are just being a troll spamming props everywhere i'll give them the deserved punishment (max ban time plus a perm extension, and an explanation with what happened along with a warning, and any proof I have.) People begin to complain about an "illegal base": [What process do you take to make sure the player fixes the issue(s) with their base? What if the player refuses or ignores you altogether?]First TP to base in question, check it out, tell the owner what's wrong with it, give him a time frame to fix it (around 5 mins) along with his first warning. Then return that much time later, if they haven't fixed it, or refuse to fix it, and continue to abuse it the owner of the base will receive a ban. (12hrs-1d) You see another staff member abusing his/her powers: [Example of staff abuse? What process do you take to stop it? Do you get higher ups involved, or would you talk to the staff member yourself? Both? Neither?] Things like no clipping through bases grabbing/throwing people he shouldn't, abusing powers on players. If I see a fellow staff member doing something he shouldn't be doing *depending on how severe* i'd say something along the lines of. (you know you really shouldn't be doing that right? i'd also be recording.) At first i'd leave it at that and let it go. If I caught him doing it again i'd have to bring it to a higher up, or if someone else brought up the same staff member abusing i'd chime in with my evidence. A player is extremely uncooperative during a sit: [What do you do if a player doesn't like your judgement of the sit? What do you do if they start downright insulting you?] If a player feels like i'm abusive or i'm not being a good staff member i'd tell them that they could contact an admin or, they can go on the forums and report me. Players that constantly run from sits, mic spam over me will just be frozen, gagged anything required so that the sit can go as peaceful as possible. A player is excessively RDMing/RDAing and breaking NLR: [What is RDM/RDA and NLR? How do you determine if a player is breaking any of these?] RDM = Random death match. The act of killing players without reason. RDA = Random Arrest. The act of arresting people without reason, or warrant. NLR= New life rule. Returning to the same area after being killed there, or interacting with the players that caused your death. *a few exceptions one being Hits.* If someone is Mass RDMing/RDAing they will receive a scaling punishment from a verbal warning, all the way up to a 1w ban. The punishment given will be based on their active warns. If someone is breaking NLR depending on the situation if it calls for it will receive a verbal warning, scaling all the way up to a 1/3D ban depending on active warns.

    I’m not 100% sure about it since I got my CC about a month ago now and all that all I know is the basics of a CC stuff but I think he did say the 2 specific models he wanted tho so that may count for it but I don’t know what usually happens when you blacklist a mod that has a few models in it You should replace that with the SteamID and not the link since it saves jouram some time but usually Jouaram knows what the steam ID is by looking at the link and all

    Failure to follow these rules will result in your immediate denial. BE PROFESSIONAL Requirements Must NOT hold a staff position on any other GMOD server. Must have AT LEAST 60 hours in-game. Applying before 60 hours is reached will result in INSTANT DENIAL, even if you acquire 60 hours while your application is still standing. You must maintain a healthy level of in-game activity, being inactive in-game will lead to an INSTANT DENIAL. You must receive positive feedback from at least 2 admins+ to be approved. If you don't meet this requirement in 7 days, your application will be denied. Super Admins+ always have the final say. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rules Rare exceptions may be made for some of these rules, but you must have permission from a Senior Admin or higher, unless otherwise stated. Your application will be locked one week after posting. Advertising your application in-game or asking people to "check out" your application can result in an INSTANT DENIAL and a 7 DAY WAIT to reapply. Negative feedback on an application is normal. Excessively arguing or complaining about it can result in an INSTANT DENIAL and a 7 DAY WAIT to reapply. Plagiarism is not tolerated. If your application is found to be plagiarized, it will result in an INSTANT DENIAL and a PERMANENT BLACKLIST from reapplying. You may ask to have your application closed or denied, but you'll still have to go through a 7 DAY WAIT to reapply. While you're free to resign at any time, you will still be subject to a 30 DAY WAIT to reapply (from the resignation date).

VERY RARE exceptions may be made for former staff who would like to apply directly for Admin, but must get permission from a Super Admin or above first. Responses on applications must display a positive, neutral, or negative rating followed by a brief explanation for the rating. If you do not give a reason for your rating, or just post emotes and memes then you may be issued warning points on the forum. (Regular forum rules still apply!) If you are an Admin posting positive feedback, be thorough in your reasoning. Give reasons why you think the player would make an exceptional staff member. (Your vote has weight!

    The Crossbow is quite nice. It really depends on what you would like to have. I chose smoke grenade, frag grenade, alt awp and alt knife. Just look over the weapon list that you can find on the custom class creation template and choose four weapons that you think you would like.

    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!
