UPDATE 2014-01-27 18:30 GMT+0
Unfortunately I do not have as much free time as I'd need or want to, and we ran into an issue regarding the stat saving system. This is being looked into and the server will be back up as soon as possible. Hopefully Weasel will be able to assist in regards to the SQL issue. Apologies for the inconvenience, but it took us by surprise as well.
Everything else is setup and ready to go. We could technically have it running, but without stats saving. However we've decided to keep it down until the current issues have been resolved.

The Takistan Life Revolution - Roleplaying Server is now officially online!
The rules and TLR (Takistan Life Revolution) controls can be found in-game, they are pretty basic and unfinished. I will be launching and updating a formal rule page on the forums and in-game upon official release.
Do note that ARMA 2 is known to have script kiddies, but I've lately been very busy dealing with those as well, however it has not proven to be a major issue considering the fact that the established script logging has proven to be very effective (+600 bans on valid script kiddies as of now). If this does however happen, i.e. you witness a hacker, it will be dealt with asap. If a root administrator is on, it can be dealt with immediately. If not, I am afraid you will have to be patient until one is available. As I said, this is only a BETA, so that you can get a hang of the gamemode and mess around until official release.
We have the last few days often had a constant full server (though tends to take some time to recuperate upon restarts, so feel free to join then), so attaining an available slot may prove to be difficult. There will also be Supporter-perks added upon official release, as well as some other juicy things that will revamp the whole gamemode itself for your roleplaying pleasure.
So feel free to join the server and have a look!

BASIC INFORMATION OF TAKISTAN LIFE REVOLUTION
ARMA 2 Combined Operations is a sandbox military simulator (A combination of ARMA 2 and ARMA 2 Operation Arrowhead, you need both). The game mode we are planning on using will be similar to that one of the roleplaying game mode known as Life (Or more commonly NameOfTerritory Life; Example Takistani Life). The game will consist of several jobs both illegal and legal, from drug dealing (both harvesting, processing and selling), to taxi service, herald (though simply delivery of products), workshops (producing and selling cars/weapons) and much more. There will also be a law enforcement that players can take part of in order to prevent crime. Possibly a paramedical unit (neutral, provides medical support to anyone that requests it, though not yet confirmed). A terrorist training camp, where individuals who have worked their asses of earning their money and wish to strike back at the law enforcement agents or the president can purchase training and weaponry to utilize in a tactical insurgency. Possibly a second government to the south with its own "military/law enforcement/president" and a border splitting those two entities up (North and South).
Staff that wishes to be added, please PM your GUID to either me or iProxy in a PM here on the forums. STAFF has 10 reserved slots (50 official, 10 reserved, totaling 60 slots)
SOME BASIC RULES TO TAKE NOTE OF
Rules for Players:
All rules are enforced by the admins! Obey an admin even if the rule is not listed! Do however contact Deon or iProxy if you have questions about a scenario in regards to the rules.
1) Do not kill unarmed civilians.
2) Do not teamkill or rob teammates as BLUFOR / OPFOR / INDFOR.
3) Do not randomly stun / detain / arrest civilians as BLUFOR.
4) Do not use offensive racist, sexist, or homophobic language. Do not insult another player based on their real or perceived race, sex, national origin or sexual preference.
5) Please get on Teamspeak if you are BLUFOR / OPFOR / INDFOR.
Guidelines are to give out helpful information. The admins will not enforce them unless deemed necessary.
Deathmatching is killing unarmed civilians without a legitimate reason.
This applies to all factions: Civilians, Blufor, Opfor, Independent.
-Civilians may kill armed members of the other factions (Not Civilian) without the Deathmatching rule applying.
-Blufor may kill Opfor and Independent freely. However they should remain within their borders acting as a law enforcement and peace keeping unit, unless the Police Chief has decided to wage war and hunt another faciton down with a legitimate RP reason.
-Opfor may kill Blufor and Independent freely. However Opfor should remain in their land unless a war is waged by the commander for a legitimate RP reason.
-Independent may kill Blufor and Opfor freely. They are not restricted to their lands, however terrorist attacks have to be of value, no randomly blowing up innocent civilians etc, but using it for strategic means. No blowing up of key targets (this includes the hospital/bank/bases/shops etc.
Teamspeak spying is cheating. Joining an opponents teamspeak channel to gather information about an opponent is teamspeak cheating and will result in an instant ban from the teamspeak server and the ARMA 2 server. This includes using information from your previous faction upon switching over to another. Try to use global chat only for emergencies. User direct chat/side chat/cellphone text messages or Teamspeak for other uses. Administrators will warn you if you abuse global. Repeated abuse will result in a kick, followed by a ban if not ceased after that.
New Life Guidelines:
The New Life is when you are killed, or suicide. You start a completely new life as a unit in the specific faction and you do not recall anything that has happened before. I.e. you continue on with your daily routines, not directly returning to a scene of crime etc.
***LETHAL FORCE SHOULD ONLY BE USED IF YOUR LIFE IS IN IMMEDIATE DANGER.***
Personal safety is your first priority, and Civilian safety is your second priority!
Your main objective is to keep peace in Northern Takistan.
All Blufor should carry a stun weapon.
Blufor must obey traffic laws, unless responding to a call. Police must have their lights and sirens on for legitimate reasons in order to speed. Failure to abide by this or abuse of lights and sirens will result in blacklisting.
If a vehicle is illegally parked or blocking an area they should ask the civilian to move it, if the civilian does not move the vehicle, they may impound it.
Any vehicle used in a crime must be impounded. (All illegal items in a vehicle are removed when its impounded) Any weapon used in a crime must be taken as evidence.
Fortify the borders and prevent the propaganda from the South spreading hate across Takistan, before your citizens turn against you.
Tickets should only be given for legitimate reasons. Here is a small guide:
-Not cooperating: 10k
-Blocking roads: 15k
-Illegal weapon without license: Confiscation + 25k
-Attempt to pass/smuggle across the border illegally: 45k or 15 minute jailtime.
Arrests should only be given for legitimate reasons. Here is also a small guide:
-Still not cooperating: 1minute
-Drugtrafficking: 1minute/1k worth of drugs.
-Aiding a criminal: 10minutes
-Driving without a license: 5minutes
-Continued threats despite ticket: 5minutes
-Bank robbery: 15minutes
-Killing Blufor: 12minutes
-Mass murder: 20minutes
Aviod firing on unknown aircraft, unless you know for 100% that it is hostile.
Not everything is listed, contact an online administrator and ask for a suitable ticket/jailtime before issuing one if you are unsure.
All Blufor/Opfor/Indfor Must join Teamspeak 3 at ts3.bybservers.co.uk
This will help with operations and communication. Join the Blufor/Opfor/Indfor Channels, and make sure your name is the same as ingame.
Random searches are allowed but must not be abused.
Examples of when you should search:
-Checking people around a bank/gas station/shop that has been robbed
-Near or in the area of a crime
-Checking people going through a checkpoint
-Because the person acts suspicious.
**A LAW CANNOT DIRECTLY COUNTER A SERVER RULE!**
-The Blufor are not required to enforce any laws made by the president unless the Police Chief agrees.
-The president cannot legalize anything illegal.
Private Military Contractors
-Blufor must not engage PMCs unless they have a legitimate reason and or are deemed a direct threat to the safety of others. Not a excuse to outright kill them on sight.
All Independent Must join Teamspeak 3 at ts3.bybservers.co.uk
You are a insurgent and a rebel to the Takistan Government.
Do so by acting in this manner, destory anything that comes into your path is not the way to go.
Use tactics and cooperation with your teammates to gain a common goal, to topple to Takistan Government. This may include capturing small villages or areas/kidnapping the president/civilians and holding them for ransom. This should be done in an RP manner, and NLR applies. Do so primarily by the means of demands, if they are not met, you are permitted to initiate insurgent attacks to either weaken the government or to present a true threat to them.
Allah is your master and commander.
Roleplay is key.
