    Concern for loss of playerbase.

    All that I will state will be in addition to Franco's above quote. Competition is a good thing. .Net welcomes any Starship Trooper community. Starship Troopers teaches us that it is bad to become complacent with what we have. Complacency through lack of a common goal through a shared "enemy" is in of itself a death sentence. Good times create weak men. Weak men create bad times. Bad times forge great men, who then pave the way to future good times. Our staff has no desire to go to war with any SST community. We welcome their players to our community just as much as we wish they would welcome our own to their fold. We've already been in informal talks regarding the exclusivity of content; however, future cross-community activities are not unlikely to be discussed in the future (balls, joint-operation missions, search & rescue of personnel, just to name the usual three that have been done in the past). So.... Be nice, children. They're neighbors. Not heretics. Be the person Mister Rogers and Bob Ross believes you to be.

    When TS kills RP

    There's plenty of reason why the TS server averages roughly 1/3rd of the player count compared to the game server at any given time. Players understand that while it's cool to chat with friends and shoot the shit during missions, it can get irritating when there's that one disurptive player who nitpicks every possible aspect of others' roleplay, criticizing them, giving no quarter, hanging around in the same voice lobby and killing the friendly vibe (this driving others into different lobby channels and killing the fun). TS isn't a requirement. If you have suggestions on how to make it better for all, feel free to provide critique. Otherwise, keep in mind that no one has to be involved with the TS server to be considered a part of the community.

    Derpytoast Ban appeal

    For documentation purposes, after additional consideration and internal discourse, this ban has been lifted.

    LOA End

    As someone who has been around since 2008/2009, SST is one of those genres that you have a hard time truly giving up. It's encouraged to never create direct and purposeful threads that revolve around you departing. You'll be remembered in another SST community or you're going to drop by every once in a while, at worst. At best, your passion is renewed and come back full-swing.

    Minor crimes are misdemeanors. Typically, misdemeanors are classified as cases where one person's poor choices do not directly influence the lives of others in a substantial way (i.e. murder, aggravated battery/assault with deadly weapon are substantial). So, rule of thumb, stick to low level DUI's, minor pick-pocket thefts, trespassing charges. However, punishment for all crime is relatively severe. It is normal for public lashings to occur for 18+ year old pick pockets.

    New forums!

    I recommend switching to using the IP address for connecting to the server. If you're adament on using the URL, make sure you're using sstrp.net:PORT# rather than starshiptroopersrp.net:PORT# Also, take any further issues to the Help & Support forums. Thanks!

    Derpytoast Ban appeal

    The permanent ban stands. We acknowledge and appreciate the act of public apology; however, this was one line among many that had been crossed. It would not benefit anyone in any way to explain, in detail or summary, what you had done and why it was wrong -- you already acknowledge your fault in your original post. With that said, I do wish to encourage you to focus on improving upon how you address similar situations in the future. If your idea of resolving dilemmas involves tearing down those around you, you will find yourself without good friends. I sincerely wish you the mental fortitude necessary to grow into someone who's actions and words bring hope and comfort to those around you.
