Apparently it needs to be added into the MOTD that if someone takes your phone you can't call the police, if they take your radio you can't use group chat, and if they gag you, you can't talk. Earlier I took someone's phone, gagged them, and took their radio but the admin didn't enforce it because it wasn't in the MOTD.

Hopefully you'll have more luck getting this pushed through than I did.  the kidnappers rule section REALLY needs an overhaul.

This plays into that whole "FearRP" which is absolute BS. No one really enforces that here and for good reason it's not needed. Since there is no physical way to take a phone the /911 command should be usable or the /r or /g commands should be useable.

Or at least give a time limit to said kidnapping.  Like after 5 minutes (aka the normal jail time) if the kidnapee is sick of playing said game, they can suicide in console and die of starvation or something.  If they want to play along and escape instead, they can do that too.

Biggest issue with the job (besides the player model) is that fact that there is no limit on the amount of time a person can be held.  So in theory, you could hold someone indefinitely and BOOM, their play session stops being fun.

As far as a rule clarification goes, this is the same issue I had a while back with people communicating in-character via PM from jail.

I remember somebody kidnapped some other guy and help him captive for ~40 minutes. He was having fun with it with the first 10 minutes, but then he went AFK for the next 30 minutes until typed 'kill' in console.

I'd say its more of FailRP since not having a phone has nothing to do with fear. If theres no way to stop them from calling the police, the minute you kidnap someone they call the police and as soon as they're in your base they call it which makes kidnapper completely useless.

I didn't mean it was FearRP exactly. I thought of the word I wanted to use a moment ago but forgot it. But I feel like it's the same principle at least when you mug someone and say "Well you're too scared to run or fight back" or something like that. If they call the police I say you kill them.
