    I thought that I could stay as a staff member until I graduated high school and then even after that until I ship off to the Air Force, but I just cant will my self any longer. So as of today I would like to throw in the towel and resign, but this is not just a resignation this is also a farewell, because I don't think I will be seeing a lot Ret. anymore. It has been a great few months staffing on this server, and the server has been a large part of my life from middle school, all the way to now, graduating from high school. I have made many friends and meet many new people, and I love you all, but I don't have the perseverance to stay as a staff member, nor to even play on the server. Of over 3K hours I have on GMOD, over half of it has been spent on this server, and let me say I don't regret a moment of it. from building OP bases that literally teeter totter the edge of being illegal, to events that caused the server to lag for the rest of the day, and even the movie and music nights that we would have and I would fall asleep at my PC. But all great things do come to an end. I thought that by becoming a member of the staff team I would find a new interest in DarkRP, but it is all the same to me and I just don't enjoy getting on any more. One of my last posts was to say sorry about not getting on was due to school, baseball, and work. but that was not entirely true, the truth is that I dreaded being on the server. And its not because of the people, because I always have a fun time talking and interacting with new and old faces. but its the fact that I have done everything and have everything, it makes everything so repetitive, and the only fun I could really have is to sit in my base and watch movies while i make money. I would like to thank some people that have brought me here, and those who have been great friends. If I miss you out I am sorry, there has been a lot of people from the past 4ish years in no order: @yelsew352: I have known you for a while, and I always enjoyed basing with you, and I am sorry for ripping a base idea off of you and making a billion of of it @CTW: an all around great guy, nothing really to say about you but that I always enjoyed your company @ChiefOrb: ahh good ol' Chief, a great guy for any occasion, on and out of Ret. HMU if you ever wanna play anything with me @KingDogeThe3rd: I have known you for a while, but any time I saw you you were always staff and you did not mind me putting you down, so If i put you down again its because you are a friend. @Jewordi: Small misconception is that you are indeed not a jew, but actually a nice person, and you really have matured over the years, and have become a much better player @Zeezy ✪: I remember when you first started I gave you a small loan of 5 million and look at you know, a great player who knows what he is doing. @Vivider: RIP you were a nice guy, sad to see how you left @Rainz: Really the first person I meet on the server and friend, Im sad about what has happened to you, but you are the reason why I stayed on the server @Tyrone Longcock: Great guy once you get to know him, I will say my last goodbyes in your discord; ) @Saad: I did not see you a lot in GMOD, but I did play a lot of other games with you and that is fine ; ) @Boone: sad to see you leave, but when you were a round you were a great guy @MrGeekabit: We kind of grew apart, but still a great person, and we should do another bank sometime @Shogun4122 : Really just a discount Papamid, not to shabby bases, not to shabby PVPer, JK keep up the good work. @VladTheImpaler:The servers resident longest running staff member, keep it up, and keep the server safe for me @SugarMuch: is that the sugar from years ago? @Alpha: BIG RIP, HMU If you still can @B100dyty: with out a doubt you are the reason why I became so good at building @tig ole bitties : and you are the reason why I am/or was so good at raiding @Oz!: A nice friend, I don't have a lot of memories with you, but you were always around Sorry if I forgot you again, but there is a lot of people, If you have any great memories of me and you please feel free to comment it, wouldI like to reminisce about the past. As a final goodbye. I will be giving out all of my items before I leave. I will also give away my sisters stuff since she no longer plays, that means there will be about 16 Bil, 4 new Enigmas, and a butt load of other sweps. <(;~;<) A few last things I would like to say is that the reason why I am resigning is not just because I dislike playing GMOD but because I am leaving for the Air Force soon, and a few people did know about this. I am leaving soon(ish) so I will be on and off the server randomly, but please don't ask for things, that is annoying. But until I do leave If you do want to add me on steam and catch me playing a game I am always down. But for now this is goodbye, and I will miss all of you, and all the great memories that we have made together. Thank you for everything, goodbye. -Papamid "This is not the end.

    One year as staff. Been a fun ride. This does not by any means that my time on Retribution is over, but rather shifting. It is time for me to step down as a staff, though. Senior Admin, while nice, has been really taxing on me and I’d like to shift my focus towards newer things. Most of you guys probably saw the weapon I was working on in the Discord, and animating it and porting it has been a great time. I’ve decided to become a freelancer for Ret! Thank you to the amazing people who made my time as staff memorable. I didn’t have a mentor, lol @MrGeekabit Thank you so much for helping me get to where I am today. Don’t know when you’ll read this, but it’s meant a lot. @Marki Thank you for helping me get into modelling and giving me my first assignment. Glad I’ll be able to help more in the future. Thanks to all the staff I’ve worked for, with, and above this past year; you guys make joining the server less of a chore and I couldn’t ask for a better team to spend this long with. yeah i mean thats the post That’s all the time I’ve got for today. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I think its time to finally open up blender again.

    I joined ret in the summer of 2015 and made a forum account in december of 2016 and got staff at december of 2017 to february in 2018 then got staff again august 20th 2018 and I have stuck around all this time trying to do what i can to help but as of recent I can't even think of ret without being annoyed as I don't wanna get on due to the fact I'm sick of the server I feel out of place, uncomfortable, uneasy and awkward, Also never having anything to do because I can't really hangout with anyone due to the reasons above, And its also just become annoying to get on and try to staff or get yelled at 24/7 for not taking a sit, I'm sick of it and sick of staffing and I've tried taking a break and that was the reason for my inactivity but It didn't really do anything other than further fuel my drive to resign, And I've basically been using ret as a way to get happy and can relate to prawn but now its time I actually try and fix my life issues instead of running from it and trying to avoid it, I thank everyone for allowing me to have this journey on ret its been great until recently and I was hoping to make it to 1 year of staffing but this is it, Farewell. @Flustered Pigeon I thank you for being a great friend and actually being useful as a higherup and doing changes that older higherups like shalom could never do. @DaveThe2nd I've known you for so long and you are such a amazing friend and good higherup, Wish you the best. @Xcede stop fucking killing me, Dickhead @Byte Oh man where to begin with you, You are probably one of the most amazing friends I have EVER had on ret and I cannot thank you enough for the amazing memories you have given me and the time you have spent playing games with me @nonamus Haven't talked to you much as of recently but you are a great guy and fun to play with/talk to. @The Anonymous Rainbow I remember when you first joined the server I gave you you're first permanent items and I can't thank you enough for being a friend. @Stale You are such a amazing and kind guy I can't thank you enough. @Hurricane Harvey Good guy good friend, Message me when you wanna dick around. @iBagelHole Weird but a cool friend. @Demon. My first and only successful mentee and a good friend, Best of luck. @Marki Amazing dev and very kind and polite person, I wish you the best in life. @CTW fix you're damn mic @Cloud I haven't seen/talked to you in a while but you are a very nice and kind person, Thank you. @ImmortalxReaper Play gragas. @Jouaram Read if gay @Chocobo Bit gay but fun guy to talk with/mess around with. @MrHotwings117 My god you are a amazing guy and extremely kind and lemme know when you wish to play the isle again. @Sullyツ Pet dozer. @poyo You are a short baboon. @Colours catcatcat @Zipper™ Haven't talked to you as of recent but wish you the best man. @Zeus don't get perma banned retard @Xepharia You suck at csgo @Kenny ★ Golf? @Kodey Your birds are nuts @SoundPulserino Gay weeb @Johnny Sparklez You suck @JellyThotJinx I'll still find a way to fuck with your builds @Blazen good luck as staff. @thinner goodluck on ret lil guy. @thog thog will care @nurkee Time for maple syrup @SugarMuch Stupid @LilFri3z Stay outta trouble Well this is it, Sorry if I didn't ping you, I'll be on every now again and be in discord every now and again but for now farewell and maybe i'll come back sometime in the future.

    I haven't been around in ages (since like January of 2017) and I decided to come back and finally stick around for a while. Wanted to make this introduction post for the newer people who don't know about me. I used to be a Senior Admin (also technically Super Admin at the time, it was a weird and interesting time) before resigning for like the 5th and final time. I was also known as the night shift guy due to a large part of my time online being during the night. It's good to be back with the current community. A little bit about me: I like hot wings I have my own emote I also feel it's mandatory that I should just say this because I know some people will ask me to return to the staff team. The only way I'd make a staff app is if pigeon seriously thinks he needs more staff help, and if I feel like staffing again, which I really don't right now due to a couple reasons.

    The new trading system is now being released! I have been working on this for a while has now and I believe it is in a solid enough state to release. This new system is fully automatic and more secure way to trade. All trades will now be logged! How to use: Type /trade [Player Name] to send a trade offer to a player. Type /tradeaccept [Player Name] to accept a trade offer. Type /tradeignore [Player Name] to reject a trade offer. Note: an offer here is more like an inquiry. Make a couple trades with your friends to become familiar with it and feel free to message me on discord (Marki#9191) if you have any questions! Also, please report any bugs you encounter asap. *Important Info for future events* I'm reworking the tradeco system and all items currently on tradeco won't be ported to the new system. PLEASE REMOVE any items you have on the current tradeco if you'd like to keep those items. thank u pigeon for making this look nice

    I resigned from staff for a couple of reasons that I don't really want to explain fully here, I will most likely stay pretty active but at this point idk, I might just fade away and become less active and less active just because there isn't much to do at this point. I just want to add that it was fun being staff and I had a fun time with a majority of the staff and wish you all the best.

    As of now I will be posting a review of basically all content added for every month to keep a time stamp and transparency with you guys so you can also know what we were up to and what we will be working on in the future! This will also be a q/a discussion area of anything we've added if you had any questions. But with that here is your month in review! April In this month we have worked on and added a lot of cool content for you guys to try out but the main focus of this month was the staff team! We spent the majority of this month making changes to the ranks/layouts/systems that staff use and I will post all changes below. Work Completed Community Staples: Marki did a fantastic job of porting over the custom class system onto the server Propwhitelisting So far around 100 props have been whitelisted and I still need to go and whitelist the chainlink fences and regular gates. Another 100 or more props will be whitelisted soon Discord Revival Still in the works we will be adding and renovating it more so. Rank Changes: As many of you know we added the rank of trial mod! But not only that every other rank has had some form of change with it also. NEW RANK! Trial Moderator Trial mod will be taking the place of the first rank a staff member can receive as a staff member 12 hr ba INCREASED PERMISSIONS Moderator Ban time increased to 3 days INCREASED PERMISSIONS Administrator Ban time increased to 4 weeks/1 month RE-WORK Senior Administrator Senior is no longer going to be considered a higher-up rank and will now be more of a veteran admin instead. In doing this we won't be tracking activity and these members will be the juggernaut advisers of the staff team in-game. They will be the link in communication for the higher-up team and the rest of the staff team. This is the rank all staff should strive to be and earn. With this change and lowering of permissions we can double the size of the rank itself and really let great admins shine a little better. REMOVED Respected/Trusted/Janitor Trusted/Janitor: these ranks were added for the reason of problems with the staff team in general. These staff ranks sadly incentivized the idea of great staff retiring but keep staff privileges. We want staff to stay as staff and for staple ranks on the server but pseudo ranks were something that were sacrificed for that idea. Respected: This rank was removed to the idea that respect is earned and no rank should be shown for someone to have it. This rank has consistently been argued about and just a hassle in general for a meaningless rank. Just because amazing previous players lose this rank does not mean our respect to them will also disappear. New Mentoring System: The Trial-mod period will have 5 STEPS involved with the system what will be over the max time of 20 days. The Gauntlet though will take place only for around 15 days. Pre Trial-Mod Stage 1 (3-5 days) Stage 2 (3-5 days) Stage 3 (5-7 days) Post Mentoring/ Review Stage Pre-Trial Mod Member will apply for staff and will be reviewed by the whole community. If passed they will be given the mod test If failed they will be denied and can re-apply in 7 days. Mod test will be given under higher-up supervision and must have a 75% or higher to pass. If passed they will be asked to give 3 mentors they would like as their mentors with #1 being priority/then 2/then 3. If a staff member who retired within 4 months of apply re-applies and scores an 80% or higher they will be given moderator and no mentor given as an option. (Higher-ups can intervene.) If failed they will be denied and can re-apply in 7 days. The mentor and mentee will be given notification and the gauntlet will begin. The Gauntlet (Stage 1) 3-5 days (80% Structure 20% Social) Mentees will be a given a quick sheet of punishments and commands along with links to the staff handbook and an invitation to the staff-only club channel. The mentor will give a run down of all staff commands and permissions. Binds/Powers/Menu/Awarn/Hyrdologs/Extensions/Staff discord All sits will be conducted with the supervision of the Mentor in which the mentee will watch all sits conducted to learn how to properly collect all logs an evidence during a sit. Mentees should take the time to learn all staff ranks and members. The Gauntlet (Stage 2) 3-5 days (40% Structure 60% Social) Mentee will be conducting their sits alone with a mentor spectating. After the sits are finished the mentor will give a review of how the sit went The mentee will be quizzed on illegal bases and rules created but the mentor to find any weakness. Mentees have the ability to take sits when their mentor is not available but will be responsible for their decisions. The Gauntlet (Stage 3) 5-7 days (10% Structure 90% Social) The mentee will be left completely alone and will be silently spectated by mentors along with higher-ups. This stage is when mentees should be able to prove their ability to staff independently without help. This is the mentees final chance to prove they can be trusted with staffing powers. Post Mentoring/Review Stage Mentees will be given a survey about their mentor and the trial mod system in general. The 3rd stage of mentoring has not ended until the final review from higher ups has been given. Higher-ups will be giving the trial-mod a very detailed assessment of their gauntlet period of their strengths and weaknesses along with whether they passed or failed. If Passed they will be given the rank of moderator and have completed all testing! If Failed they will have their staff power removed and must wait 2 MONTHS before re-applying. Staff and mentor only channels: Now that the final admin apps were completed in the staff only channel it is going to be hidden and removed from sight. With this we will be taking advantage of the new club system to schedule events and staff meetings! Admin applications are now using the recommendation following these requirements: Must have AT LEAST 150 hours in-game. Must have held a Moderator position for minimum 1 week. 3 recommendations before applying. Reworking of moderator and Admin tests Staff Activity: We doubled the staff team size Staff team is now very active and a super strong fantastico group of members! (Proud of em) Though staff inactivity is still in the works we are trying are hardest to continually make staffing as fun as possible! Plans for May Now that staff has been mainly fixed we will now be hard focusing on fully reworking and fixing community issues/look/forum activity! In the coming month expect these updates to be coming soon! New Ret logo and vectors! New loading screens! The addition of the trading club! New menu layouts and advertisement of forums in-game! Placebo buffs to forum activity! Our main plan is to finish up all manual systems before summer starts and the burst of players comes in! I would expect to see a lot of old players + new ones coming in at the end of the month so get excited! Personal Comments: I haven't really said it to everyone but I want to thank all you guys including Jouaram and the other higher-ups for having so much trust in what we're doing. The amount of support and awesome community members over the past 2 months is fantastic and now even amazing old players are coming in to join the new bloods also. It's been a long time since I've seriously enjoyed ret and all you guys are what makes it so enjoyable not only for me but for every player who joins in the future. Thank you

    We've added a new custom job system! This system will automatically create custom jobs, just like the custom printer system. You'll receive a custom job token in-game that can be used to create a custom job in the /jobmenu ui. The job will be added to the database instantly but you will have to wait for a restart due to how darkrp works. Existing jobs will still work the same way! You'll have to make a post in the custom job section to request a port over to the new system for your job. Changes with the new system are as follows: Custom job additions and ultimate jobs will now also be redeemed in the form of tokens. $1 will equal 1 addition token, which can be used to add several systems to your job (I.E. 8 Addition tokens can buy you the chef system upgrade). Buying the ultimate package will now give you a custom job token and an ultimate token (redeeming the ultimate token on a job will give it all upgrades). With this, you can also now edit your job on the spot. You can add friends and change the name and color of your job, which will also automatically be applied whenever the server restarts. We're also removing some of the old job additions and model restrictions. All the existing additions and model restrictions will stay in-game, you just can't make any new ones. Message either me or Jouaram if you have any questions. I also made a small guide in case you need some help!

    I'm making the decision to almost entirely leave Ret. I say almost because I will most likely stop in eventually to see how things are going, but for the time being, you won't be seeing me on the server or the forums. I hate joining just to get bored after 10 minutes of being on the server. Not saying the server is bad or anything, but after playing for so long there just isn't anything to do. I've had a great time over these last couple of years and I'm glad I got to be a part of this community. I know I've said things to people about the server being bad or things along those lines but in reality, I wouldn't have stayed for as long as I have if I thought the server was terrible. I would like to thank @Informer ♥ because if it wasn't for him I wouldn't have even played GMOD. One day we just decided to play some DarkRP and mess around with the end goal to get banned. At that time I never played DarkRP and had no idea what I was doing. I didn't even know what any of the tools did or how to use them. Anyways we joined Ret and decided to make a gun shop. Informer sold the guns, and I was the guard. Once we got finished building we decided to actually try playing instead of getting banned or trolling. After playing for a while and started talking to the other players I really enjoyed it. Now here I am years later with over 1.5k hours wasted on this dumb game. Another thing is I never thought that I would ever be staff. I didn't think I would be good enough because I didn't know any of the commands and was afraid of messing up. After over 700 hours I finally decided to apply. I really wasn't sure if people would support my app and was checking the forums non-stop for over a week. When I got accepted I was both excited and nervous at the same time. I would also like to thank @nonamus for mentoring me and teaching me everything I needed to know. If it wasn't for you I might not have been the staff member I became. Also, it makes me angry that you have a mic and almost never use it. But at least you have talked unlike retard boy @Long Haired Stranger . I wanna thank the "minges" I had a good time with and people I just thought were cool - @Child with a gun @Not ST john @TotallyNotMinx @alice @ghoul @Mekki @MrGeekabit @Tropath @Marki @Sir Vape @yelsew352 and I guess little boy @Shalom (there are probably more but I can't think) Finally, I would like to thank the staff team @Moderator @Administrator @Senior Administrator @Super Administrator for doing what they do and helping out the server. Even though you get a lot of shit from the players (with me being one of them). In reality, without you guys, the server would be chaotic and unplayable 24/7 (even though it may be like that currently with the lack of staff). @Jouaram I take back what I say about you being good at sniping in fortnite. And I guess you were an ok owner. Thanks.

    @poslepoludnya I'm gonna format this so it's easier for you to read. I like it when you write a lot because it gives me more to throw in the dumpster. "This is my complete last post, this is it" I find that hard to believe The ploy worked. I joined the forums and got us off. It took a couple hours of work, but the glee of getting away with one of the biggest crimes was immeasureable. You think rdming and propspam on a server is an immeasurable crime? I can tell you for a fact nothing you have ever done would have been something of actually importance to what we deal with weekly. I didn't have a lot of friends in Canada. I'm surprised you have any with how you treat other community members. If you want more friends maybe try not to act like an entitled prick. Ret went from a bunch of stuckup rule boys who were gonna grow up to be cops, the pigs of the human race prima donna I felt like an uncle to some of you kids,and I saw a bit of myself in some of you. If you could tell me who those kids were so we can watch them more closely that would be great. And honestly, this will feel like a betrayal, and yeah it totally is, but also, you turned a minge into someone who, uhh, didn't do that anymore. So that's pretty cool. What interesting is most of your post is talking about how this is what you wanted to be and now your upset we made you feel this way. I seriously want you to re-read that post then look back at this statement. Your suggestions: Harsher punishments You ironically hate poeple who press down on punishments but believe we should have harsher punishments at the same time XD Your situation is exactly this where as much as we love people posting things they love you decided to make ret a platform for yourself. As much as you deny it, that and you playing piano are the only 2 things I have ever seen you do. Gun Proliferation You do realize you're on a darkrp server correct? This is a major focal point if it and as much as we're going to be editing this, it is a priority to make them somewhat accessible to people wishing to play thugs. Low staff numbers We literally doubled our staff team and is probably one of the reasons you got in trouble. Take the time to look at the staff trello before writing ill-informed opinions. Staff knowing the tricks that RDMers use to get off As much as this is important it would be better if we could automatically filter these situations through game-play and not sits. If we automate systems people rdm with such as mugging/basing and what used to be fearrp we can lower it to the point that anyone trying to cause issues is extremely identifiable. Yet again you wrote how much you hate this and like that at the same time. You are 100% an oxymoron of yourself. Conclusion In total you have written over 3,000 words the past two days and are clearly showing you have some insecurities about what we did. You call us entitled yet come in here and treat everyone in the community like garbage and as #'s to your soundcloud/spotify. You writing this just makes everything happening to you here karma. This is equivalent to having a breakdown in my eyes and I seriously hope you can find help elsewhere with it. I just hope you realize how hypocritical everything you're writing here is to how you act and what you've done. Can't wait to see you again.

    I want to address something that we really haven't taken the time to just fully talk to everyone about and that is how we have been handling community issues between players and toxicity. With this I want to tell you guys a few important things we really want you to think on when playing on the server. Toxicity vs Harassment I want to make it clear now that stating all toxicity is bad would be hypocritical of us as higher ups and we feel that a little spice in the soup is good. We do not punish players based off of toxicity unless it solely ruins people experience when playing on the server. Too much toxicity drives away players who don't wish to be surrounded by it 24/7 and lowers the amount of players we can have joining the community. If one person it making it so 20 people are not enjoying their time on the server it is better deal with the one person than it is to allow them to drive away 20 players. To prevent you from being this type of player I wrote a list of principles we base punishments on. I personally do not wish to have rules such as these but it has been apparent that rules over these situations has been needed. Do not make any beef with a player personal. Not all players are going to get along with how big our player-base is. If anything rival groups make rping more fun and make raids and gangs more meaningful on the server. Going after a person outside of the game though is completely un-called for and does not belong on this server. If found doing so you will be punished for it. Examples of this: Going after them outside of game on other platforms Blackmail spreading false malicious information about this player Doxxing their information/Using their personal info against them What you say outside of the server does reflect our opinion on you. (especially for staffing) If you wish to apply for staff but are found to be extremely toxic or out of control outside of the server we will not feel comfortable giving you staffing privileges. If you are found to be extremely toxic out of game and begin to on the server harsher punishments may be given. If you are involved in a problem you will be punished even if you did not fully understand the situation. Recent events + previous ones have had groups of people solely going after one player and while there always is a ring leader causing most of it there are always people surrounding them making it worse. Whenever we talk to these players they say "they didn't notice" or "they were not playing attention." Like it or not even if non-intentional you will not receive the same level of punishment as a ringleader but one will still be given. You guys have to pay attention to your choices and your decisions and yes mistakes are bound to happen but this is made so that they do not happen twice. Do not add personal information about yourself to the server I do not understand what has been with the idea of posting very emotional or personal information on the server but it does not belong on a video game forum. There is not a single positive situation that can reasonably happen from posting something like that. Your personal life is not our responsibility and any posts or situations like that will be hidden and result in a punishment. If you need someone to discuss it to keep it out of the community. Contact higher-ups on issues such as these. Below are a few examples of this: Suicide Notes/Threats Molestation/Rape Domestic abuse stories Child abuse stories Self-Harm stories Deep depression We are trying our hardest to make the server as enjoyable as possible for as many people as possible. No decisions we make are personal attacks towards a player and we try our hardest to stay as un-bias to a situation as possible. Additional Notes: I will be leaving for a short period of time and will only be available on weekends to the next 2 weeks. During that time I will be slower than usual answering any questions or situations regarding the server. That being said I have some content to add at the end of the month for everyone so stay tuned mi amigos!

    Recently I’ve been playing other games with my irl friends and I’ve been enjoying it. Also, I’ve been losing a lot of interest in DarkRP as a whole game mode and gmod is a game that I stopped playing except with my friends and we mess around on different game modes. When I play a different game mode than DarkRP I feel free to play and actually enjoy the game and have something to do after almost about a year of taking sits and doing the same thing, a long break won’t help and I think leaving Ret would be the best option. Since school is starting in a month I think it’s best for me to focus on school and games I enjoy instead of stress of school and stress of staffing. I’m not going to @ ppl because I feel like it’s unnecessary. All I’m gonna day is thanks to the higher ups and jouaram for letting me be apart of the staff team for so long, and for keeping the server running for so long since most of my favorite servers I used to play on have shut down. And jouaram when people say that “Ret is trash” I always thought it really isn’t that bad. Yes there’s pay 2 win stuff but the staff team is good and in my opinion I think the server is unique with its mechanics. And thanks to the people who I would have a chat with or mess around with when I was on the server since they gave me something to do, but I feel like most the people I used to know quit a while ago or were banned. maybe when new things come out I would hop on to see what it’s about and stay for a bit then I would head on out but until then this will be a goodbye.

    hey guys, it’s shalom again. remember when i said “but that doesn’t mean my time at retribution is over” on my resignation post? well, this does. i can’t connect to the server and modelling brings me no pleasure. this community has been negatively affecting my health for a while, and i think it’s time to take a step back and rethink some of my actions. i would rather hang out with my friends irl than sit in a basement and play Garry’s Mod all day, and something makes me come back each time and I’m not sure what it is. Even when my computer basically said “fuck you” and hasn’t let me reconnect to the server since, i’ve been decently active on forums and on discord, and i’ve always hinted that i was working on something when in reality i haven’t touched that project in many, many weeks. So I’m resigning from freelancer. There’s another whole host of reasons that I don’t really want to get into, but I’m glad the time I spent here was fun and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Not gonna tag anyone because who cares, seriously. If you’ve ever had more than five full conversations with me that weren’t in a sit, i probably don’t hate you and will miss you. I’ll still keep in touch with the people I like. It’s finally time I work on things I’m passionate about. I’d like to get better at singing and dancing and acting and pursue the theatrical arts. I’d like to continue streaming on my twitch and get affiliate or whatever the next step is. I’d like to break out of my shell and not feel awkward as fuck when speaking to anyone new. Who knows, I might come back someday, but it’s unlikely. Thanks for being a pal, pals.

    Hello everyone, I kind of have a few things to say, I've been ruminating on it for a bit. It just feels like it's my time to jump ship. I attempted to do this last year, but I kinda realised that it just wasn't the time yet. Now is the time. I've changed a lot in the three years I've been on Ret. A lot. I've talked to a good few people on this site, and maybe even caused some people to view the world differently. Ret has also changed a lot, for better or for worse? I can't say. It's just my time to go. I was unsure of whether I should include my reasoning, it doesn't matter that much really why I'm leaving because I am in a major minority, I'm not really into Ret for the Gmod server, I was into Ret for the forums. I bought Supporter for the forum rank, as crazy as that sounds. So most of the things I have to say are really more communal issues, and even then most of the communal issue I have aren't communal issues. I guess, to put it simply, I'm just not relevant anymore. Which is fine, my time has passed here. The kind of off-topic discussion that used to be on Ret just isn't as present, which means the server is probably going pretty well, so that's good. A lot of the people I knew on this forum are also gone, including @Child with a gun, who was kind of my biggest fan. Do I think Andy is a great person? No, and him being around would have been a boon on Ret's new leadership. Yelsew's day of Ret is gone, now we're in the age of Dave, which is good. I like Dave, I guess I'll tag him, I love @DaveThe2nd. I'm happy that toxic people are being banned, and I'm happy that people are taking second looks at the actual MOTD of Ret. But Andy was a friend, and he was a person that was very connected with my music. We talked a good bit about his life, and my music and overall "being there" helped him come out of a hard time. And yeah, did he kind of deserve what he got? Yeah, but at the same time, I always said the day he was gone, I was gone, and the place doesn't feel right without him. I can't lie. Also, going back to the change of the self, I don't need Ret as much as I used to. I can't remember who said it, might have been Yelsew though I can't remember, but it was something like "nobody hangs around the Ret forums if everything is okay in their life", and I can't say I 100% agree with that statement, but I'm kinda feeling it right now. When I joined Ret I was a very lonely foreigner, who was still getting over the death of basically my fiance, with the double death of my parents lingering still at the time. I had a lot of grief, and ultimately a lot of vulnerability I needed to share onto Ret that I just don't need anymore. That show of vulnerabilty was what gave me a place on Ret, people liked my stories of the past, and well, Ret and I are both kinda past that. The current posts on Ret just don't facilitate that kind of sentimentality anymore. A shame, but things just go, and Ret's forums serve a different RP server than they used to. I don't have much to say about the current gameplay cycle of Ret, the problems Ret has stems from its perm system, but its perm system is also what makes it Ret, and just because I don't like perms doesn't mean that tons of people love them. I think RP loses a lot when every player is packing an assault rifle under their coat, but it also creates a bit more of a fun kind of Free-For-All death-match with rules kind of thing that I can't deny, has its appeal. I guess as a closing statement, I'm leaving Ret behind not just because Ret has moved on from what it used to be, but also because I'm a very different person now. There's a lot of @Jouaram hate right now that I don't really agree with, a lot of people blame him for their disinterest, and I don't think that's very honest. Considering that most of the people I absolutely hated (aside from Judicator) are either gone or banned, I love everyone here. It's just that it's my time to go. I'll be around for a few more days, to say goodbyes, and also post the last album I'll post on Ret. It is amazing that I've gotten to share so much art and music here, by the way. Out of my 11 albums, the majority (7 out of the 11) have been shared here. It's fun to see people pick up music creation on this forum and share out, and I feel like I had a bit of an impact for that kind of culture here. Anywho, with much love, Goodbye.

    (A poll from over a year ago) A new host for the server has been requested for as long as I can remember, but it's finally happening and the upgrade should be very noticeable. We'll be transitioning the server from our current host to our new host Saturday at 5pm EST, everything is ready to go but we just want to go over and triple check so there's as little inconveniences as possible for players. For those of you worried about what you're going to lose, you shouldn't be worried as everything will carry over smoothly and automatically; this includes perm items, hours, ranks, etc. The server location is being moved with the host change which means a ping difference for most of you, depending on where you live this will either be positive or negative; the current host is located at Chicago and our new host is located at Dallas. With this host change majority of bans are being wiped and we'll be using a new ban tracking system which allows everyone to view and keep track of bans online so it's easier for us to know how/when/why someone got banned without needing to be in-game and banned players can know how/when/why they're banned/unbanned. If a ban was issued on the Forums or if the ban reason was for malicious reasons the ban will not be removed. For just over a week from 02/09/2019 5pm EST until 02/18/2019 5pm EST RTD tokens will be spawning around the map for those of you that are wanting to farm up the S.T.A.R. Pistol & co. If you want to keep track of when the server goes live and be one of the first to join add the IP to your favorites! -

    I've decided it's time I finally take my leave as both a staff member and a player. As of lately I haven't had much incentive to come on. I thought taking a break would help solve this issue but it's only made it worse. It has come to the point where I can no longer stand coming on for more than an hour. I was glad to have give staffing a chance and for the most part, it was enjoyable. I broadened my horizons and ended up learning a lot of new things. I won't be making an elongated post about my whole experience but I can safely say that things have definitely changed. Whether for worse or better, it's been a joyride of experiences. I'm glad to have met so many new people and be a part of this community for so long. With that, I'll be giving some shoutouts to the people who played a significant role on me in my time here. I might still come on from time to time so I won't be giving away anything. @alice Not much to say other than you're an amazing and close friend. We've been through some crazy shit and tried out some dumb servers that turned out to be very fun. It was really cool that we got each other to apply, but it sucks things turned out the way it did. @Hurricane Harvey Another good friend of mines. I've known you for a while now but we haven't had much time to talk to each other again. Hope you're doing well. @Zoro I use to disagree with your point of views on the server but I'm finally getting to understand where you were coming from. You've been an old time friend and helped me out a lot. It was a huge shame to see you go so soon but I'm sure you're pursuing better things in life. @Informer ♥ Didn't think I'd be tagging you in here for when I finally decided to quit but here you are. You were my mentor and helped me a ton, even when I wasn't staff. I was very nervous since it was my first time staffing anywhere but you helped me overcome that. I'm glad we got the chance to know each other and talk some more. You're a cool guy and you've got some dedication. I respect you a lot and I hope you continue to help the server. Just don't get another strike @nonamus We've known each other for a long time. You've always been extremely chill and fun guy, even when given the power you have. We've had some crazy moments but I hope you know that it was all in good fun and I really wish you the best of luck. Never change. @Long Haired Stranger You've changed a lot but I'm still going to tag you since we were pretty close friends at some point. I miss having crowbar battles with you, even though I rarely won. I was really surprised how early you got promoted to senior but I can see why now. You take staffing very seriously, which is good. Keep it that way and get that super before ugly nonamus does @Colours & @CrustyKangaroo I remember both of you idiots being little moderators. You've both put a lot of time and dedication into the server and it's crazy to see how far you've both gotten. I've got a lot of good memories with you two and I'm really sorry for letting you down after taking so long to apply. @Sprayngo & @Vivider You both did some bad things but you were good people. Even though you're no longer around I'm glad to have met you both so early on. We had a lot of good times. @Not ST john Hurry up and come back from your vacation. I still got your shit to give you. Thanks for being a good friend, always had fun playing with you on the server, especially when kidnapping people. @iBagelHole I haven't seen you in a long time. I've known you for a very long time now and we had a lot of good memories. I just wish you'd stop playing fortnite so much. Anyways, I think I got mostly everyone. If I forgot someone then please let me know. It's been a pleasure meeting all you people but I think it's time I take my leave. I want to give a huge thanks to the staff team as well. You're all good people and deal with a lot of shit you shouldn't have to deal with. Keep up the amazing work and make sure Retribution stays in tact. Didn't expect the post to be this long; just shows how much this server has changed my life. Goodbye and good luck to everyone!

    Retribution started early 2015 after I closed my other servers GalaxyRP and TGL in 2014. Retribution was made by me, mephss, Hans and a few other friends originally. Retribution started off pretty slow but we stuck at it and it became relatively popular late 2015. When I join the server I usually just make sure it's not shambles and if it's not then I no-clip into a wall and tab out. I would say I follow the role of a manager for Retribution in keeping things running, making sure nothing wrong is going on; however I rely heavily on higher-staff help to make the staff-side of things run smoothly as that's never been something I'm great at (ty @Hans). If you're wondering why I don't play on the server often it's because it's very difficult for me to do so without it being painfully tedious due to players trying to get my attention by ruining whatever I'm doing, I've played on alt accounts and enjoyed the server but playing on my main gets ruined pretty fast by players. I used to play on my own servers pretty much everyday and that's where I got a mass of my Garry's Mod hours from and also where I met Hans/Mephss. I'm also very good at going inactive sporadically but that's a WIP.

    It should come to no surprise to some on the staff team that lately I'm having rough problems in general. However, the server was once an escape from life for me, but it's boiled down to where the server has left a taste in my mouth full of stress, and the constant toxicity of some. I've met many players over the last couple of months that I've been on, and I've been consistently active almost every night the last two months, however it's gotten to the point lately where I do not want to take sits or even connect anymore, even when I force myself to. The server has a ton of good players too. You can walk out and you will see some fairly chill ones but that's never enough, because the bad ones always stands out. This isn't to say that I'm leaving Retribution. I'm taking a break indefinitely. I don't deal with stress from just the server, I deal with stress from real life. I have a plethora of problems I'd rather not explain in a post, but I will say that with my last year of High School coming, I'll have a lot more to deal with educationally and socially. I'm sorry if I let some of you down. But I'd like to end this post, so I'll leave you all with a goodbye song.

    So this will be my resignation post. I'm going to do my best to keep it short and sweet. As of today, I am resigning from my staffing position. It has been a very great time getting to know and be more involved in the community. A lot of people made this much for than just a video game for me and I will mention those people in a bit. Although, the community as a whole made this a really great time as staff and I would like the thank the community in general for that. I'm just gonna keep this as short as possible and this is no particular order. @Xepharia Man... You were everything I could wish for in a mentee. You were so excited to learn and just a great guy to spend time around. While I was teaching you I believe you taught me more. You showed me how a staffs mentality should be and you quickly became one of the strongest if not the strongest staff I have seen. I am so grateful for the time I got to spend with you during those 2 or so weeks. promote this man @Flustered Pigeon Thank you for everything you have done for me. Your plan with reviving the server was amazing and has made such a big difference. You drastically extended my time as staff and you gave me the will to play more. I can honestly say without a doubt, you are one of two of the reasons I was able to achieve what I did and for that I say, thank you. @iBagelHole I don't know if you will see this but, thank you. You taught me so much in the span of two weeks when I was your mentee. I really enjoyed spending all that time with you and I wish you never left. You are such a great guy and I want you to know that everything I've accomplished can be traced back to you. @The Anonymous Rainbow All I can say is, what a great bloke. I love this Aussie. You helped me so much during my time as staff and I always could rely on you whenever I needed help. You have always been such a great friend to me and you've made such a positive impact on the community. You will always be my cobba, with this message I guess you could say, "I tend to get in my feelings." @DaveThe2nd You always scared me before I actually got to know you. You're a really cool guy that is absolute shit at CS:GO, no offence. Anyways, you are a really good headadmin and are one of the reasons I stuck around. You have always been really patient with me and put up with my antics which only you could handle. Thank you. @Shogun4122 You stupid Canadian monkey. My local man. You were always such a good friend and it was great to see your activity just spike and have you back. When you came back you hit some crazy weekly hours which you were able to maintain for a month which just impressed me. You've always been a really good staff and I hope you continue doing what you're doing. @Byte You're a typing god but also an insane staff member. You have the experience of half the staff team combined and you are just a brilliant guy. You are such a good friend and I will miss working with you but I hope we can still play the occasional game of Deceit together. @ΣStatic You taught me a lot before I ever became staff. I really do appreciate that. The good old time in the courthouse are some of the highlights of my time on Retribution in general. Thanks, bro. @nonamus You are too good at staffing and geometry dash. @babydumptruck27 I don't know if you'll see this but, thank you. You were such a good friend before you left. You are such a good staff member and you could always make me laugh. It sucks that you got a job because we lost the chance to make a more great moment with each other. @Coloursrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr chess If I missed you, I am sorry. I just wanted to keep this short but I will likely be sticking around but I don't know how my activity is going to look. Also, feel free to message me at any time through discord. Well, that's it, thank you, everyone. nurkee#6097

    Well, I give up. This server was fun for awhile. I soon learned that it was full of mass RDM, sub-par staff, and no distinguishing qualities from the other 500 servers out there. I really had to put up with a lot while I was on here, and I had a motive. I wanted to become staff, to be a part of something. And it was this motive that kept me determined to keep playing. So I played to 60 hours. I had some fun. I recently applied. Now, you know where this was going. The application didn't receive positive feedback. And honestly, I'm not angry at you guys. I'm angry at myself for wasting my time dedicating myself to a community that really didn't need me, and that I didn't enjoy. It was becoming a chore to get on here several hours a day. The truth is, this server is complete garbage. The economy is shit, the community is awful, the staff are unpleasant and not too great (except maybe Lewd Guy and Gery). You can say "oh, you're just mad because you didn't get staff". You'd be right. I devoted myself to something I shouldn't have. I naively held on to the thread of hope that I may be a part of something worthwhile. This server is NOT worthwhile. I love most of you, and appreciate all of you, even if you've been an asshole. If you for some reason still wanna talk to me, my Discord is Riggity_Richard#4404. I'll probably find a new server. And this time, I'll choose more wisely.

    Denied While you had this up you decided to propblock printers and AFK farm them. So once again, you must ask permission to reapply if you wish to in the future. Do not ask to reapply for at least 3 months.

    DENIED! Okay so I’ve had a lot of incounters with you personally and I don’t along with the others think you would take this seriously, as you are quiet a minge and in some cases toxic. I suggest if you do want to change your appearance you will have to try a lot harder and it will take quiet sometime.

    In all honesty, this thread seems like it was made just to create controversy that isn't needed. If you had any genuine concern about the staff team, wouldn't you have just made a complaint about the bad staff or gone to the seniors or even Jouaram to tell them about the issue at hand? It's beyond me how all of these staff members that you happen to be calling out are doing very well made responses and the most you can shit out is the same copy and paste response (ex: If you don't have time then resign) The audacity required to even say that you don't care about their "excuses" is insane. You expect these babysitters to be on 24/7 to assist you at the snap of a finger? Don't you think they get tired of listening to you cry about someone shooting you once? You need to get over yourself and grow the fuck up, these aren't your personal assistants. These are volunteers. They don't even have to be here in the first place and you're taking them for granted. This is not SlaveRP, this is DarkRP, the staff are not your slaves. I'm not sure if you understand this or not, but they have lives, they have families, they have friends, they have more than just a Garry's Mod server. As for the perma weapons, I don't have much to say. I am here for the community, not for the grind. Anyways, I thought I'd throw my useless opinion around on a useless thread.
  41. 12 points
    I don't know why you always come back for a day or two, repeat the same shit and then leave without actually looking at anything on the server but instead just say whatever is told to you by whoever. Whether its correct or not is a different matter, it just feels petty like you're trying to come back to feel good about yourself by dropping a turd on anything you can and then dipping.

    Trick or Treat 2018 is Retribution's Halloween mini-event. From now until 5th November 2018 Trick-Or-Treat pumpkins will spawn across the map every 90 minutes. These pumpkins will have a chance to give you either a trick or a treat (RTD tokens, a new perma item). These Halloween-ified RTD tokens will give EVERYONE 2 RTD tokens no matter their rank, if a treat is received. Every pumpkin looted gives you a chance at one of the 5 new permanent weapons. If a trick is received however, you might not be having a good time. This mini-event introduces 4 new Melee weapons and 1 new Gun. During the event, night and day have been switched; with it being night-time majority of the time, along with some other spooks added. Whilst the event is running you will also be able to purchase some spooky entities from the F4 menu such as candy, fireworks and spiderweb that you can spawn as a method of base-defense (slowing attackers). I don't want to post pictures of the rewards yet as I want players to find them out for themselves. Good luck!

    I'm not going to try to drag this post out. The only reason I had applied for staff was because the server was boring for me. I wanted to try something new, also that I got stale to apply. Applying for staff literally just made the server worse for me. That's about it, the server is extremely boring, and staffing where little fucking kids don't listen half the fucking time didn't make it any better. No, don't ask me for my fucking perms or money I ain't giving you shit. It's dying with me. Couple shoutouts. @Stale You're legit the closest friend I've made in a while. we better keep in touch. Nevermind fuck that we are keeping in touch. @nonamus Memes aside, you're also one of my closest friends. I know we're keeping in touch, spam me with bitmojis, I don't care. @Child with a gun I love you @Zoro Wish you gave me the oops bind, too late for that now is it? We used to be closer, when you got admin, our mingefests ended, which was sad. @Mekki Love you too Along with that, don't expect me to see me on the server again. I'm done. I'm only keeping the people I am close with added on steam, don't get offended If you find out I unadded you. @Colours @CrustyKangaroo @Jouaram Set my rank to supporter, thanks.

    Its been a blast these passed couple years, and I enjoyed every second on the server. Thank you @Jouaram@Marki@DaveThe2nd! @Daddy Duncan < You keep on RP'ing till you can't, you're seriously one of the few players I'll miss. @ImmortalxReaper< Broseph, you've always been super chill to me, and becoming staff didn't change that. I hope whatever you do, you continue being as chill as when you staff'd Retribution. @The Korean < Thanks for all the good business with Minge-Builds™. I hope you find the best base you can in the future. @Epoo < @Demither < Thanks for being such a giving person, you legit are one of the reasons I continued playing. @Zeus < You'll make a great mod, keep on grinding fam. Thanks for the business too broski. @Sullyツ < Too good of a staff member not to mention. Keep staffin' on them bitches. @George The Clout God < Thanks for being so friendly bro. @OGNinJa < I know you've left the server forever, but if you ever return and find this here, hit me up on discord bro. @babydumptruck27 < Sucks you had to go, but props for being a dope friend and dope staff member, thanks for everything bro, and if you return hit me up on steam! Peace out everyone, I'll miss you all.

    Thank you all for the memories we have all shared on this journey but for me this is the end of the road as I need to focus on my plans in life and have to put the server down for a long while. You all mean a lot to me and I am sorry to break the hearts of those who loved me, I am sorry to those who have hated me for my career and I want to say I love you all This is goodbye but never let the idea of our friendships be the thing that brings you sadness. Look forward to the future everyone and keep your head up. You are all wonderful people and I am glad I got to meet several of you in-game and make a lot of memories for us to keep/ look back to. Goodbye Ret Community you will be missed. *P.S. I didn't tag anyone because I have touch the lives of almost all the community so I don't think I could tag almost everyone to this post *
