I've been meaning to discuss this but have not had the opportunity to do so earlier. I had quite a few discussions with people who were "regulars" on both the ARMA 2 server and the Rust server prior to the affiliation with ByB, who decided to leave as a result of certain people (generally ByB-affiliated, I can name a few that I remember from the discussions but I'd most certainly forget to mention some, so I'll save the name-calling for now). It has generally been a result of their behavior and attitude towards other players that resulted in said players no longer wishing to play on the server.

Prior to the official ByB affiliation/release of the ARMA 2 server, it was quite popular, though tended to lose population after restarts but was gained once the filthy americans woke up from their greasy slumber. Upon the official affiliation, that averaged population lasted only a few days until it started to rapidly decrease. (This was prior to the official new map, which required ARMA 2 and Combined Operations, resulting in those who did not have both ((or ARMA2 FREE)) installed, could not play the mission and as such not join the server, which was another blow to the population decline.)

I talked to iProxy about this at the time, as I had personally received quite a few complaints regarding certain ByB Members (they were not pointed out as ByB Members unless they were staff on the server, but rather by name). This included both Supers, Trusted and other trash like Jamie and Jelman (these two specifically did cause quite a few people to no longer wish to play on the server, in their own words). The people who I had come to remember (i.e. regulars on the ARMA 2 server prior to official affiliation) contacted me both on the Forums, Teamspeak and on Steam and informed me of them "leaving" due to certain people as well as mentioning certain situations. Because they unfortunately did not have any video recordings of the various incidents, there was little I could do, but they did not come back.

Reason I am bringing this up for discussion is because multiple and various people reported and complained about the same people, as well as it also happening on the Rust server. The Rust server did however change IP and name (so some loss was inevitable), but we managed to keep the population surprisingly. However similar incidents occurred here regarding complaints about people from ByB. One different thing here is that some people from ByB did complain that Minty allowed people to exploit into bases, which I haven't had the change to talk to him or iProxy about yet.

I'm a bit distracted and in a hurry as I write this, so I may have missed some points, but the general impression that I have received regarding population decline of previously popular servers vs ByB Release, can, arguably, be connected to the behavior of certain individuals within ByB. Since iProxy, Adol and Shikari have been active on one or both servers, I'd like for you to share your input and thoughts regarding this.
I am currently not as active and available. Before you send me a PM, feel free to send one to other active root administrators as well in hopes for a quicker response! Active root administrators can be found here.

Jamie and Jelman is cancer, all they do is troll/flame people. They play like they are above all and wont get punished, i guess they do because we have let them get away with too much. The ARMA server had/have alot of potential and i would love to see it populate again.

I haven't been involved in ByB Community for quite some time now, and just recently began checking the forums a bit more. In fact I've been playing Garry's Mod again and am upset there is no ByB server running.

I saw this thread and I just wanted to add in what started to make me lose interest in ByB and truthfully it was the lack of consistency and favoritism that occurred in the higher ranks. For example, the same behavior that some of the regular minges portrayed on the servers would be overlooked by the higher ups because they were friendly with said person. That same behavior exhibited by these minges on a daily basis, that I exhibited on one occasion got me a major admin warning because it was against someone close to the superiors. It may have been years ago at this point but I remember how angry I was and how unfair it was. I continued to play after that but after seeing multiple instances of favoritism and inconsistency it truly upset me. This community deserves better than that. The only two Root's (and some of the current roots weren't roots at the time so don't take this as a diss to current roots) that I ever trusted to give a fair and impartial judgement were Deon and Weasel. They never allowed friendships/favoritism to influence their decision on punitive measures.

The quickest way to lose morale and make someone lose interest is failure to consistently enforce the rules (to everyone, not just those who aren't liked as much).

Howdy ;)

Agree, but also it's not really so simple. I doubt there is any community in the world that doesn't have some base level of favouritism. It's not so easy to avoid.

Hope all is well Pantho :)

I agree. I know it's hard and like I said despite some of the problems I still loved playing here. Life also took me away and it became a bit too much. I'd love to see the DarkRP server come back to life though, I'd definitely spend some time playing.

I will admit, for its problems this community definitely is better than many others. At the end of the day it may not have been perfect but it's pretty awesome.
