Totally agree with almost everything both of you have said.
BCRP has been around for 6 years, we have always had ups and downs, people do get bored, leave, play other servers or games and end up circling back.
This repeats every year, depending who it is, yes we have had lots of players that have been here the entire time, some that actually never left, we have good and bad just like any community, none that I see especially on fiveM are perfect.
It is fair to say we do not have a tremendous dev team that pop out updates weekly, we have a select few people that dedicate extra time from their personal lives outside of RP to help this community.
Nobody is down playing any issue's we have or face because of the economy or the state of RP from said people at times. We have never ran from problems or issues we have had, we deal with them and try to make adjustments. But like anything else, its always easier looking in the window playing Monday morning quarterback, we are aware of issues and are currently working to improve the state of the community.
No one frowns on members suggestions, we get them every single day, sorry we cant add everything people want, it needs to make sense and it has to work for all.
We continue to try and treat everyone fairly regardless how long they are here, who they know or what they have done for the community.
I can count on my hand how many RP communities been around as long as we have, not saying we are perfect, but again, we try and balance everything to the best of our ability and capacity.
We are well aware of groups that have been here for a while, that don't want to interact or give other people a chance at RPing, those people and groups can be reported like anyone else and it will be handled, no one is being protected and we expect anyone that gets in the server to be ready and willing to RP at anytime with anyone.
Any person or group that feels they don't have to, please report them and we will handle happily.
I like many others in this community, members, staff and the other owners have dedicated alot of our life in the last 6 years to create, maintain and progress a place people can come to feel safe, have fun, make friends and create storylines and great situations in RP, we expect if your part of this community, your here for the same reason.
The staff team that has dedicated every single day since the day they made it on the team, has dedicated and set aside personal freedom to help others here and yet when they do their job, they get shit on, complained, doxxed, personally attacked, finger pointed at, assuming shit they never did, all because they are here to enforce the rules of role play and keep the community clean.
Again, to all the people that sit back in your chair, trying to tell us what we are doing wrong, while at the same time they are contributing to everything we are talking about. So no one is perfect, you adjust, change, update and experiment till you find something that makes it better as time goes on.
We are consistently looking over the forums, reading suggestions and taking the advice at times that makes sense, so don't think because your post didn't get a response, it doesn't mean we don't care.
I will speak for myself, but I'm sure I speak for my entire team and partners.
Anyone that says we don't care about this place is foolish and needs to check themselves.
To create a server, takes nothing, to create a community takes years of hard work with lots of the right people in place.
I'm not going to get into stuff that's in the works, but almost all of my concerns will be addressed over time shortly.
So appreciate your feelings and experience you have had here and all I can say is thank you for sharing this and hopefully sometime in the future you decide to circle back and enjoy your time here once again.
