Trusted Member System

Trusted Member System

 

Description

 

  • Only specific people have access to this role by strict distribution. - Strictly assigned through applying for this role with specified requirements e.g. (Review of reputation/Past disciplinary actions, Interview with high ranking members of staff who have authority to grant said role, Members of staff could vote for applying members role, Playtime on server may come into account of a decision.)

  • Examples of perk use in RP. - Hydraulic use could be put towards levitating platforms or a launching hobo build, Buoyancy could be put to use for boat crafts or floating bridges, Wheels and ball sockets could be used for transport like a bus if someone wanted to rp as a bus driver, Ropes can be used for hanging props up for decoration or a parkour event.

Reasons

 

  • Benefits for the server. -  Higher motivation for building as a whole, more elaborate building techniques, extended freedom in regards to roleplay (Which would boost player base morale).

 

  • Benefits of the trusted member role would be privileges to access previously blocked tools. - Garnets Darkrp has always had a bland building experience with limited permissions due to the lack of trust of its players base but has never considered a trusted member role with permissions to use disabled tools e.g. (Hydraulics, Wheels, Ropes, Buoyancy, Ability to unfreeze props etc).

Additional Information

In conclusion, the addition of the trusted member system would benefit both the server and the players that are granted the role by expanding roleplay options in the server ranging anywhere from new gambling techniques, extended roleplay for hobos, participation in events designing parkour, Roulette, Challenges, Deathmatch and possibly stages for talent shows incase game masters aren't confident in building. With thesextended permissions, server events could easily be morexciting by introducing new ideas/designs from the trusted members.

This would really breathe a breath of fresh air into building and rp. I feel like so many tools and props have been restricted due to exploits that minges thrive on, with a trusted member system we could allow for so much more creativity in RP, gamemasters events, basing, and building in general. If this were to be implemented I think there should be strict PERM BAN rules in place. As long as trusted members are vetted properly I see this only benefitting the community.

Like the idea don't get me wrong, but doesn't this pose the issue of players crashing the server? Even if it's accidental, that's still a hit on the live player count and a player has to get perma'd for it. If you can think of a solution, I'll plus 1 but for rn neutral since I really do think a system like this would be nice to have.

I think some people have forgotten, the restriction of almost all of the tools listed is not for a lack of trust, but a server stability choice. If you’d like this change to happen, it comes with a guarantee that there will be more crashes.

 

Are you really willing to have your progress gone in a blink of an eye due to a vphysics crash because someone did something wonky with hydraulics or unfroze a prop and it got stuck in the map?

 

As for the whole trusted part of this: Tenured players still abuse things, we have long term players get banned frequently, and even staff members removed for abuse on occasion.

+1 i mean its funny but I feel like it would be abused by people even if trusted and if not abused some people would crash the server with it but if there were a way to stop the crashes then i could see it working

@AlexConwayit would take a lot to crash the server on purpose with props, even with these tools and unfreezing them you'd be able to catch them out with prop logs or extended tool logs if you were to implement this, and from my experience staff and long term members get banned/abuse for lack of things to do on the server or dramatized situations amongst the staff team.

  1. There is literally 3 things to invest in that are minorly entertaining, the casino, the unbox system and printers. casino is literally just /roll gambling with extra steps, unbox was nerfed over the years at its current state, its more beginner sided than long term sided due to everyone's point of view of explosives, printers just make money at a boring rate and now with what have heard about the consideration of capping alts to having only 2 allowed on unbox will never be touched again with its current prices for special crates.
  2. GG did remove them for a lack of trust why else would they be disabled for player use its not like they idle causing frame drops in the tool gun menu. everyone lost the privilege of having cameras, chairs and easy weld constraints due to trust breaking actions of GG members ruining it for other people, the purpose of suggesting this is to give people a second chance and additional things to do on the server. 

 

if this system was implemented its obvious that crashes will occur but not at a stupid constant rate if you choose your trusted members correctly and staff members monitor their building/dupes, i could argue that the community director before you proggy had a trusted member TheDudeAbides, he had moderator permissions without having a sit quota or applying on the forums, purely just to keep trouble away from late night hours when people would grind, he didn't crash the server or have any damaging history with his privilege of having permissions. there is no difference with this system except you don't get access to permissions to cause proper damage (spam banning/warning/jailing/freezing/muting), just fun tools to use for building Hobo/DJ structures that cause no damage if in the right hands. Also it doesn't "make the server less vanilla" its just whitelisting tools for a certain rank basically the same thing for staff with commands.

You mention one singular person, vs a competitive system of people who would actively pursue this. People are going to be upset, either because they didn’t get selected, they feel it’s unfair, or because someone they don’t like got picked for it.

This is very wrong on numerous levels. It could take as little as 2 props, intentionally or unintentionally. 

 

I’m not disagreeing that there should be more things to work towards, but I also think there are way more systems geared towards veteran/long term players, and way less towards new players (who are more crucial in growing the community).

Having trouble quoting on mobile but...

 

Constraints are useful creative tools, but they are not very stable, especially when you get into higher entity counts as you would with a large player limit server. There are just too many ways that someone could abuse these additional tools in addition to the instability, many of which would be best solved by not allowing them at all (rather than making a rule against it, as I'm sure the people using them in that way don't care)
