Add Rule: Lockdown Announcements
« on: November 13, 2012, 04:52 pm »
Type: Add

Info: A rule that states the Mayor must give a reason for the lockdown via /madvert or /advert before initiating the lockdown.

Reason for suggestion: It's quite annoying when the Mayor starts a lockdown and the chat becomes spammed with "Reason for lockdown?" multiple times and almost always done by meta-gaming. Also it'd add to the RP if lockdown reasons were actually announced before they are put in place rather than demanded by the rest of the server. (Maybe state that failing to follow this rule will lead to demotion to further ensure that it's followed.)

What the MOTD should say: If initiated, lockdowns must be announced beforehand using /madvert. If you fail to do this you can be demoted.

Pros: More realistic RP, Less/no more people filling chat with reason for lockdown requests. Less meta-gaming from people using OOC to ask for a reason.

Cons: Can't think of anything specific, except maybe people complaining when being demoted for not following the rule.

Server specific: All DarkRP servers aside from 6 & 7.

What about putting a reason within the command? +support

Makes sense considering every time there is a lockdown the whole chat is filled with asking why.

Pretty much for this very reason, it would be a great addition. I think it's a great idea to put it within the command as someone said. Overall a good suggestion.

Modify DarkRP so you have to actually put a valid RP reason in. +support

What conor said, Like "/lockdown Streets are hectic, Everybody Inside.", and It'll lockdown with Madvert afterwards, If they dont include a reason, It'll say "No reason supplied, lockdown failed"

Gravedigging aside, this was never really talked about in full by a Root and/or any other higher-ups.. Would be great to have.
