Suggestion, feedback or idea!
Hello folks!

I have a simple concept, one I have been thinking about for a while now. It does not have very much use but I think I would be using it on a regular basis (aka every 20 minutes or so),

We have an [ACTIVITY] check which mentions the nations that have 3 players or above, I think that public announcement is great and whoever thought of it or designed it was quite a helpful individual since this has helped many people find their way towards roleplay.

My idea? I think a command such as /activity, or /activitycheck or /a or /ac for short, should privately send an activity check message to the player who has typed out said command and this has a timer of 1-5 minutes, or no timer, does not really matter. I think I would use this since I do not like having to wait roughly 20-30 minutes waiting for another activity check to pop up.

Thanks,
DarkxWalker,

Reason this wasnt done to begin with im pretty sure was the concern that someone would just do /activity check and look for the low numbered nations so they could go bandit them using that technically ooc information.

I think itd be nice to do though I log on late at night when not many ppl are on so id like to know where peeps are to rp at or around, if someone does the aforementioned its p easy to track that lmao.

Yeah nah. Random activity announcements are okay. Activity checks on a whim would be abused for bandit/raid baiting purposes

+1 could be moderated as helix said since everything is logged. +basic rules can be added around it to better manage it. I think this would be a great idea to make dead hours look more alive

That sounds cool, but if it was actually done in concept, wouldn't it just list out all of the players not around a nation that are on the server? It'd also defeat the purpose of having people go to a specific place to find more RP, since 'wilderness' would be impossible to find.

it still sounds cool tho so maybe im wrong

Neat, but bandits (like you) can abuse it. But then again, it is very easy to catch.

I have a counter proposal, how about we keep the current activity check that happens every 30 minutes and on top of that we add the /activity command but instead of showing the amount of players on a nation, it will only show nations that are active. (No player count)

I read over everyone's comments, here's what I gathered and my opinion on it.

I think that's fair enough, thing is? There are not any bandits (IMO), PCSwift got banned, Swifty_Sam got banned (what a loser), Sixbyte and ChefDeuce both quit to move to another MCRP community to thrive there. I am the only bandit remaining, and I am going to be completely honest, have not banditted for about a month and will probably not start banditting till the server is lively again.

Who's willing to bandit or do raid baits aside from me? We could make that punishable but no one really bandits or 'raids' anymore to be quite frank.

That would be cool but I am pretty sure that would count as metagaming? I mean, knowing the position of people outside of nation regions is kind of metagaming imo, inside nation regions is fair 'nuff.

I stopped banditing, and I have no reason to abuse it whatsoever when I can just wait for the activity check. I'm asking for a command like this so I could actually go and RP instead of having to wait or having to go to multiple nations to find roleplay.

I do agree with this but at the same time, I do not.
I am asking for activity check to see what the most active nation is so I can go there and roleplay along the other people. I don't want to go to Calendale and find three people AFK or punching each other randomly, I don't want to go to Brenna and find three people RPing in their house and not outside. I want to see people roleplay inside nation regions but at the outskirts of it. Your counter proposal completely defeats the entire point of my feedback post.

My original comment actually has a part where it explains that AFK players won't be counted on activity checks. I'm just too sleepy yesterday when I edited it lol. Giving non-ETs access to a command that checks active players within a region isn't really a good idea due to metagaming concerns. Yes, it is easy to detect but it will also mean that it will give moderators one more job to do.

Still, People could be punching each other OOCly but not RPing, and even if we add another counter proposal such as: People have to roleplay (emote) for them to actually count in the activity check algorithm then it would not work either and would just add more complications. As a person who likes to punch people OOCly and meme roleplay, I can confirm this wouldn't work. It's better if we keep everything simple such as doing /a: [ACTIVITY CHECK] Nation Name [Number], Nation Name [Number], Nation Name [Number]. We don't have to complicate everything just because a scumbag would abuse it, end of my TED talk.
