Forum, rules and other cool updates!


Comrades of the seventh fleet,

We're very sorry about the momentary downtime whilst we upgraded our forums, plugins and theme. I do recognise that we had this decision and downtime before on Sunday before a rogue admin went ape shit. We must learn from our mistakes, improve, recover and move on. As Martin Luther King said, 'I have decided to stick to love...Hate is too great a burden to bear.' and so that is what we have decided as the community's management. Throughout life people will make you mad, disrespect you and treat you bad. Let the powers above deal with the things they do, cause hate in our hearts will consume us.

Anyway, without further ado... following Wesson's topic.

We have upgraded the forum's software, plugins and theme to the latest version:

On top of that, we have completely changed the style and layout of our forums. The forum style is now FULLY responsive which means that you can view the site on any device and it will look like it was specifically made for that device. We have divided the forum layout into easily recognisable categories:
  • Server Information
  • Support
  • In character
  • Out of character
We've also added non-English speaking forums, more languages will soon be supported as we hire more international administrators who can moderate those sections.

Rules


We have been working extremely hard on the rules page to make it very clear to everyone. One of the biggest complaints from players where that the rules were not clear enough. The new rules page shows all our OFFICIAL rules that are enforced by server admins. Any other rules note stated in the rules page simply do not exist. If you are unsure about a rule then send any member of management a personal message and we will clarify it in our brand new rule update section.

The rule update section will clarify any issues players are having with rules, notify you when there are new rules or alterations to existing rules.

Kind regards,
Community Management
Dear outlaws,

As you have probably noticed, our forums went down for less than an hour. But as you know, it's LAWLESS and we will fight until the bitter end, no one, nothing can stop us from becoming the biggest English speaking SA:MP community.

We have been stabbed in the back by an unloyal dog who we trusted too fast, by the time we realized what we were doing the dog had already bitten us.

Unfortunatly the dog had deleted all our important files and database. We spent over a week to update the forums for you guys, that time is now considered as wasted. However, we're back and we're back better than ever.

But don't be afraid, after a quick call to our host we managed to get back all our files, unfortunately parts of the update was lost. But with your help I believe we can grow again, it's time to pick your weapons, and show the world what we are made of.

This is OUR community, this is for you... the players.

Regards,
The community...

We are 4 months in to the new year, it’s spring, and the snow is melting (for those who live with the penguins like me). And just like the birds and the bees, we, the staff, like to see the flowers bloom and devote changes and colour to the new year. Therefore, we’ve decided to bring a few changes of our own to the new year.. On the forums.

With the new changes we wish to make it easier for the players to navigate the forums. This means we’ve gathered all the different sections into specific categories. This also allows the staff to moderate every section more efficiently, which is also why we have decided to make moderation groups for some of the categories.

Changelog:

· In character - category divided in to 6 different nodes for both factions and normal players. The faction nodes will be moderated by the factions.

· Out of character - category for requests (i.e administrative, donation, refund divided in to seperate nodes), ban appeals, bug reports, and player complaints.

· Report a crime form - featured in the factions section (yet to be released..)

· Other A category featuring the old general discussion nodes. Off-topic section for forum games etc.

· Other Games - Currently GTA V and League of Legends.
NB! We’ve got bigger plans for this section...

· Non-English Forums (Arabic, Dutch, Filipino.) Only frequently spoken languages will be added to this category.

Enhanced moderation system
As mentioned above, it has been decided to make seperate moderation groups for the different categories. This is to make sure the different sections are being used correctly, and to make it easier for the staff to enforce the forum rules. The forum will from now on be moderated with the following moderation groups:

· IC forum moderators (http://lawlessrp.com/categories/in-character.501/)
· General discussion moderators (http://lawlessrp.com/categories/other.15/)
· Game category moderators (http://lawlessrp.com/categories/other-games.84/)


Summer is soon here, and so is lawless' one year anniversary. Stay tuned!

Hey Lunatics,
I am here with good news, so don't worry about anything, I will explain what happened recently with the Teamspeak server!

Why was the Teamspeak server down?
There is a reason behind it is, that our Teamspeak license was donated by a member of this community.
Unfortunately the member went inactive which led to Teamspeak thinking we hijacked the license.


How is this problem fixed?
Thanks to our beloved donators who always supported us, we have collected enough money to buy our own Teamspeak license.

But why did it take so long to get a license?
The support of Teamspeak was down, and we had to wait for them to approve our Teamspeak license.
But hey, our Teamspeak is up now!


Is there anything resetted?
We haven't lost our channels and tags, but everyone has lost their tag so if you're in any faction, re-gain it back from your leader, everyone will get their tag back.

What is the IP of the Teamspeak server?
Connect to this IP: 192.223.24.181:9987 and you're good to go!

We are sorry for the inconvenience and thank you a lot for your support and time, you guys have never let us down and we love each one of you. Without you we have never grown this far, and we are still growing.

You're the best!

* EDIT: Due to the amazingly high demand on TeamSpeak 3 today, we have introduced the ability to donate for your own private TeamSpeak 3 channel for only $10 per channel. Funds generated from this item will go directly to our TeamSpeak 3 license fees.

More information regarding this item is available by clicking here.

Kind regards,
Lawless Administrative Team.

Announcements
Dear lunatics,

Today I am going to tell you something about my secret how I became this tycoon.
A few months ago I was trying to find Shock to rob him, but as usual Shock was nowhere to be found! Ahh.. well, I decided to grab the detective job… And I got to know, Shock has been last seen in Ganton. So I started to drive to Ganton and got out of my car. I looked left, I looked over to the right but I saw nothing, so I tried to find Shock again… Guess what, “You have searched already for someone – wait a little” Holy crap I need Shock right now! So I find him again and what I saw next was really screwed up, “Shock has last been seen in Las Venturas”. The next minute I feel a cold iron loop against my head, and I hear the words “handsup motherfucker it’s paytime”, guess three times who it was. To prevent this will ever happen to you I gladly announce a DOUBLE EXP event so that you can level your detective and not get robbed by Shock.

We also want to thank everyone for having faith in Lawless and showing your loyality & dedication towards this unique server, united we stand! You helped us getting this far, we strive forward to be the biggest SA:MP community, we are convinced one day we can proudly say Lawless is the biggest SA:MP community!

You can use this double exp event to level up your skills to become a big roller, so call your friends to start leveling their skill, you can even level some skills together with your friends. This is a life-time opportunity you can't miss!

Now.. I’ll tell you guys what happened after that. I was told to give everything I have (scamming over the limit!), I was a broke man like Amri Mill is but luckily enough I am not Amri Mill. I decided to invest; I invested into Lilly’s packages. Lilly’s packages!?!? Yes, his packages and with his packages I immediately started to earn money, I guess I don’t need to tell what I own nowadays!

This brings me to the next subject, our new donation perks I can assure you they are really worth it! (Click on them to get more information)

I hope that everybody enjoyed Valentine’s Day today. I certainly did and there is quite a bit more love to share around.

Lawless Roleplay has always been forward thinking and we are determined to set the gold standard in terms of server updates. We understand the demands of the community and we’ve shown that by asking questions and taking vigorous action where required. It has been our goal from the beginning of the community to provide a hack free environment and our cheat systems are the very best in SA-MP.

Our mission statement to you...
Lawless Roleplay is, and always, will be a community first and a game server second. We are dedicated to fostering an environment with a member-centric approach where all players have equal potential for in game success and community recognition.

Why play here?
Lawless Roleplay was originally founded on the principle that all players should rise or decline based on the actions of the person behind the player. We feel that success should be determined by a players actions and talents and not the whim of an administrative team. We have great code. We have great staff. We have great players. But most importantly we have a vigilant regard for your potential.

Is this a roleplay server?
We have worked to provide many in game tools for roleplay and it is absolutely encouraged however not required. We feel that any preferred mode of play that does not encroach on any other player’s enjoyment of the game is productive. Due to the harsh nature of game mode frequent player versus player violent interaction should be expected. However, this does not mean that players are allowed to kill other players for no reason.

Update 1.2.4 Overview

SA-MP 0.3z Released!

The SA-MP team has released a new update, 0.3z and we’ve updated to this new version with some special features of our own!


Quote from the SA-MP Team:
SA-MP 0.3z is mainly a security update for the SA-MP 0.3 branch. We've managed to include a few features and fixes too.

- An optional lag compensation mode improves shooting accuracy.
- New server callbacks allow greater control over weapons and vehicles.
- Network statistics functions will make it easier to admin servers.
- Many minor security updates for both the client and server.

C.O.C.K. Updated to version 3

As an administrator, you quickly realise that a lot of people suspect other players for health or game altering hacks. Often, players doubt another player's skills and report them to us. It is extremely difficult to judge if a player is hacking or not.

However, with with our new C.O.C.K. - players realise that hackers are a thing of the past. Our server will detect all health hacks and damage altering hacks and will edit the packets to make it right. It won't punish or ban you but make it right! The C.O.C.K. module has been updated to cover more hacks and cheats than just health and damage hacks.

The anti alt-tabbing has been updated to allow players to be damaged for the first 15 seconds that they're tabbed. The anti-crack shooting system has been altered to delete exploited bullets (nobody but you will see it).

Today, we have broke our previous player record. Exactly one week ago, we broke the record with 156 players.

Today, we have broke that record with 161 players! We have now beaten our previous record of most online players at once, three times in a row. I would like to congratulate and thank everyone for helping Lawless Roleplay to be one of the best SA:MP servers out there.

This is a sign that as an entire community, we are moving in the right direction. It also proves our dedication to the Lawless Roleplay players.

You have continued to help Lawless Roleplay by helping newbies, reporting bugs and most importantly by supporting us.

As we are growing so fast, breaking our population records weekly, we have decided to introduce a fun little forum game: House Auctions! Buying a property at auction is both exciting and potentially profitable.

Every 3 months, we will check for inactive house owners who have not logged on for at least 3 months. This is so that houses can be made available for newer players. All houses posted here are automatically taken from the owner and transferred to the server. We hope that this brings first time buyers a great deal of fun!

The rules for the auction are as follows:
  • You must meet the house level requirement. Which means your in-game level needs to be the same or higher than the house level. If your in-game level is lower than the house then your bid will be flagged as spam
  • You can only post bids on the threads in the house action forum. We do not want comments, discussions or anything else. It's purely for bidding purposes so any other post will be deleted
  • We only accept in-game money. You can not trade in other items
  • If you wish to raise a bid it needs to be raised by at least $10,000
  • We will not trade your house for another house or for anything else
  • The house will remain as it is. We will not make any adjustments in terms of location, interior, level or anything else
  • If you bid more money than you actually have on your account then your bid will be flagged as spam (which can lead to a permanent ban from the forums). We will check regularly for the placement of fake bids
  • Please make sure you mark your character name clearly in your bids to be considered
