    RipplyTiger151 got a reaction from Exemplification in Our Community - What we stand for & How to get involved   
    Great post, Sam! This community has been around for at least 11 years now and has continued to grow and grow to what it is now. I also do not expect it to go anywhere soon. 
     
    I've had the pleasure to at least some part of the community for almost 6 of those years and I have seen my fair share of drama, content creators, communities, etc. Each and every time people usually move on or things will settle down for the most part. Throughout each and every incident, LCDPFR/LSDFPR has held strong and continued to be one of the largest, if not the largest, communities/websites out there. It's unfortunate to see content creators yanking their content but this has happened every so often and the unfortunate reality is it will continue to happen. We can only move on and either promote future content creators or work hard to produce our own content to keep things going in the community.
     
    Also, the job that the moderation, community management, and development teams do is, I'm sure, completely volunteer. We as the community must realize this and understand that sometimes things may be delayed or take longer than we may want and be appreciative of the work that is done.

    With all the talk about LSPDFR 0.4, it's been a little while since we've provided a general update on our community.  Of course, LSPDFR 0.4 is our main priority at the moment and we'll have more to say about it shortly, but we thought it important to also address and announce a couple of things regarding our community.
     
    What our Community stands for
     
    Before anything else, I'd like to take a moment to reflect on who we are, as people that run this website, and as a community.
     
    LCPDFR was founded, back in 2009, simply because I thought it'd be a fun thing to do.  To play as the police in GTA IV.  It was an idea, ambitious for its time, and nothing more.  I worked on LCPDFR because it was fun, I published it because I thought others might also enjoy it.  LCPDFR has come a long way since then, it has evolved from one person's topic on a forum, to its own website, to its own forum, to its own community.  We've spanned two games, our reach has grown massively, our community is approaching 300,000 registered members.  The amount of work that goes into developing LSPDFR alone is staggering - the time that we've spent on it is measured not in days, weeks or months, but years.  Likewise, the effort required to keep our website online is vastly underestimated - in the past month we've served around 30 terabytes of download traffic alone, and have done all of this despite persistent, targeted denial of service and hacking attacks against us.  To put this in context, if you were to serve 30 terabytes of data through Amazon Web Services, it'd cost you $3,000 a month - and that's just one month of download traffic. 
     
    Why do we do this?  Because it's fun.  We love developing our community, we love developing our mod, and we love that other people - complete strangers, from all over the world, from countries you've probably never heard of, from all walks of life... we love that they love LSPDFR.  Our community has achieved incredible things: we've created an entire gaming phenomenon and we've developed things that nobody ever thought would be possible.  Our members have done more than simply play games or make mods: we've fought hand-in-hand against corporate giants (and won), we've transformed peoples' entire lives by sparking new careers and we've been covered everywhere from massive YouTube channels to mainstream media publications.  Heck, we've even triggered out of touch government ministers in Australia.
     
    That's not the whole story, though.  Sometimes we are the story.  Sometimes we make mistakes.  We've had catastrophes, like the time where we had a hyped countdown on the website only to reveal a private testing version of LCPDFR that nobody could access.   Our first ever livestream had to be rescued by Steve and Jeff after it started with Prophet driving a train around Los Santos and infamously stating "this is not the preview for LSPDFR 0.3" while our community manager could do nothing but watch helplessly after being accidentally disconnected.  We've messed up releases, we've announced things too quickly, and sometimes we've not announced things at all.   
     
    Yet, despite all of this.  Nine years later, we're still here.  We're still making mods, we're still developing this community, and we've stuck true to our principles the entire time:
    Our community is open to all. We treat members equally regardless of their status. Everything is completely free of charge, with no catches.  
    Why?  It's not about fame, it's not about money, it's not about status.  It's about love.  We love LCPDFR, we love LSPDFR, and we love our community.  We don't think that modding should be hidden in private Discord servers.  We don't think that modding should be something people pay for.  We don't think that modding should be an ego boost.
     
    We just think that modding should be fun.  It should be open, and it should be free.  That's what we stand for, and that's what we do.
     
    How you can get involved
     
    Last year, we opened up applications to join our Community Team for the first time.  This resulted in a couple of new faces joining our moderation team and upon reflection, we think it's a good change in approach from previously handpicking staff members ourselves.  We've decided to open these applications again, and would invite anyone who is interested in volunteering some of their free time to moderating our community to apply by following the link below.  Our volunteer Community Moderators are a vital part of everything that we do, and it wouldn't be possible to maintain the community without them.

    Great work Trooper Ellis. I couldn't tell if he gave his location or not but I know if that 270 wasn't his location and he told dispatch standby, that dispatcher was probably on edge. Especially working as one, I know how iffy it can be not knowing where your officers are.

    "Rockstar Games seems to have moderated Take-Two's position, and has also told Motherboard that it is in contact with Krivoruchko with the intention of resolving the issue."
     
    Krivoruchko = GooD-NTS, so hopefully OpenIV gets to continue being developed.

    As I'm sure everyone will be aware, the single hottest topic recently, throughout the entire GTA community, has been the closure of OpenIV and the controversial statement released by Rockstar Games shortly after.
     
    Today, Rockstar Games have released a new statement, answering Are PC Single-Player mods allowed?:
     
     
    Obviously, this is fantastic news for everyone, and we're grateful to Rockstar for clarifying the situation.  Furthermore, it's been incredible, just amazing, to see the support from across the gaming community for our cause.
     
    Very quickly, let's also say a special thanks to our very own LSPDFR member @t0y, whose petition to save OpenIV amassed a mind blowing 75,000 signatures in the space of a week!  
     
    It's been truly awesome to see the outpouring of support from everyone regarding this.  Thank you to everyone who has contributed towards bringing us this very welcome piece of news.

    People are overreacting. Someone will create something similar within a few weeks. If that gets taken down, someone else will make a new one, if that gets taken down, someone else will make a new one, rinse and repeat. Don't underestimate the power of modders and their determination. 
     
    It doesn't have to be as fancy as OpenIV, or as pretty, or as functional. It could be a quick mashup to simply let you install car mods and nothing more.

    If there are enough consumers complaining, that will change things. We shouldn't just "sit back and take it". That approach will never win.

    Hey 1Fugitive,
     
    From what I can tell, you've encountered a bug with someone's callout pack, or simply installed it correctly. Normally, (and almost every) time an author releases content, they do check their work out. Also, on further note, LSPDFR includes a feature where you can press the Force Callout button to end a callout, regardless of it's author. If you had trouble using that, unload LSPDFR then reload it. I'd recommend you comment this issue on the Callout's page. Also, if you get the callout again and the problem continues, create a thread on the support area and post your Rage Plugin Hook log.
     
    Finally, I'd recommend using Albo1125's LSPDFR Troubleshooter to check that LSPDFR and it's dependencies are fully up to date, along with RAGE. The troubleshooter is available here: 
     
    I hope I have been of some help to you.

    Channel 7 News in Australia ran a story regarding LSPDFR yesterday, misrepresenting that LSPDFR and other modifications are used as a simulation for killing police officers.  This has since been picked up by other media outlets, as well as the gaming press.  Obviously, this simply isn't the case, and you can read our statement regarding this matter below.

    What was that part about the police officer being run over in 2001? Reenacting Need for Speed? That's a load of bull, there's NEVER been pedestrians, yet alone police officers, that you can run over in the Need for Speed series. It was/still is strictly a driving/racing game.

    It's great to see the "video games are bad because such and such" news stories coming in again though. Really shows that nobody has a clue what they're talking about.
