    Right now, no car mods at all because I play too much GTA Online - I want the switch to be seamless. Otherwise, usually the RDE cars.

    Hi everyone, it's your beloved Community Manager here.
     
    I'd like to quickly thank everyone who applied for Community Moderator in November - we got 4 times more applications this time than last time! There were a lot of good ones in there and it was tough to just pick out a few, but we managed to narrow it down. With that, please join me in welcoming @0taku and @WillUnderscore to the LSPDFR Community Team. They'll be starting out as Junior Community Moderators, which is considered their training phase. After that, they will be global Community Moderators like the rest of the team.
     
    We are also welcoming @c13 back into his old position as Community Moderator after a hiatus due to work.
     
    Again, thanks to all who applied, especially those who took the time to speak with us. We hope to bring additional staff in once everyone is settled into their new positions.

    Ragnrok reacted to Giordano in Ohio SRO escorted from school property after giving principal a ticket   
    That is exactly why the school's "statement" says NOTHING about the incident.  Not even condemning her for it, just ignoring it.  It almost feels like they support her.  Sad.

    Yea, bascially, that ticket wont be revoke for sure. Really comes down to, what does the school do about from their end? probably a slap on the wrist honestly, they will probably do nothing.  Thats what school systems do now, they are so afraid of problems that they just bury them instead of handling them.

    and the stupid thing about this situation, there were no issues between the school and SRO!  The SRO told the principal not to park in handicapped spots (if you haven't, check the most recent link, which has video.  Assuming that is an actual image of the crime, that doesn't even appear to be a handicapped spot, it looks like a straight up non parking spot) multiple times, she ignored, he gave ticket, and she had a tantrum.  This scenario isn't hard to figure out, and the punishment should be pretty damn easy as well.

    Yes as far as I'm aware, unless the sro is a private security guard, all sro are appointed le officers of the local dpt assigned to the school, rather than being appointed by the school system.  Their authority as a leo and sro, in any case I'm aware of, go hand in hand and are ordained entirely from the dpt they are part of in both respects.  Only time iv ever heard of it being different is if it is private service, as stated above. This is why their authority is legally separate and makes the situation of the school removing this sro rather odd from a legal standpoint, in terms of supersedence of power.  The school can express an interest in having another officer assigned, but they cant overstep an sro authority typically.  And as far as I'm aware, the school system leadership, not the school principal would make that formal request to the local le agency.  Point being, the principal really shouldn't have any power in this particular situation. The principals superiors in the school system and local le agency should deal with any issues relative to something like this, but outside of that particular school.  Hopefully this wall of texts makes sense lol.

    Strange that the local authorities allowed that to happen. In my area the sro authority is independent of the school because they are an actual county of officer. None the less, that principals attitude doesnt surprise me. From my own experience with school leadership at every level of the educational system, there are many that feel like they hold all the power, and make efforts to make it as difficult as possible to challenge them even if you're right. One of the key problems with our system today.

    It's still one if the most idiotic thing iv ever seen. And I'm sorry gio, but anyone who hashes out the money for it is being foolish. That said, there is actually no reason for hashing out money in wows because you can earn, more easily than you think, the ingame currency for buying premiums. Iv played both wows and wot, and wows is def so much better (if only wargaming.net would learn from their own sub devs).

    I personally find them a bit of an unnecessary eyesore -- I haven't seen one that looks particularly nice on a forum.
     
    I get that it does provide a sense of 'community spirit' though. We are potentially thinking about opening our private Discord server up to the public at some point, which I think people would prefer rather than a shoutbox.

    Ragnrok got a reaction from XTREMEHEAT in Our Community - What we stand for & How to get involved   
    Well now that I understand a bit more about what exactly happened over the last few days and how previous events have contributed to it, I can say I think this is a well timed post.  In any event a statement like this is important in a large community, regardless of that group's nature.  I have been in communities for various games over the years and understand how critical community development and the handling of crises is imperative to its survival and reputation.  I am glad and proud to see the staff and most of the community here show their commitment to the principles outlined above and to the positive future of a civil community.  That said, I think I will consider putting in an application to help with moderation, once Iv thought about whether I can put in the proper time.  If I decide that I am just currently unable to, then you certainly have my help and advise if it is needed.  I am always open to pms, as it seems others know that even better than myself, since I have had complete strangers ask for a pointer or advise on something -  I am glad to help if I can.
     
    Cheers to this community!

    Ragnrok reacted to Sam in Our Community - What we stand for & How to get involved   
    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.
