  1. After reading through the whole topic/comments and going through some of the discord conversations, I strongly believe that this should ring some alarm bells for management. There's not a single positive comment in this whole thread for the leaders of this community. Simply put, the community is overall unhappy and dissatisfied. I have 2 messages: My public message to the leadership team: Regardless of what's happened with development, lack of updates and all, I believe there is still hope to bring this community together and take this as a massive learning lesson. Right now, as I see it, players keep mentioning "transparency." All they want is honesty and being upfront. A simple search on LSRP's main discord channel of the word "Transpar" would show how many times and how many players have mentioned the lack of transparency from leadership. Even in this topic, the same thing is repeated. With that being said, you guys have definitely made attempts to be transparent but clearly, it's not enough because that term is consistently brought back and used amongst the community (even staff members). So that is something that should be looked at and prevent from happening again in the future. I also believe there's an element of professionalism that lacks in leadership/staff. Of course this is a game and people fuck around (which is completely fine), but high-level people need to maintain some sort of professionalism atleast in tense situations. The prime example is within this topic and those are the replies from Kane. First of all, I'd like to mention that I have a lot of respect for Kane. This guy has done A LOT for LSRP in SAMP and here. I know he's a hard-worker and he's been one of the most responsive people during this tough time. Much respect for him. However, not everyone is perfect and what Kane did in this topic should be considered a mistake in all honesty. All of the comments by Kane were just bizarre instead if he posted something positive AKA what Yekim posted, that's literally what everyone was looking for. Instead, he made the most useless comments. In a moment where LSRP is filled with negativity, I cannot understand why one of the highest ranked guys was poking instead of trying to calm players down and bring some sort of positivity. The staff need to understand that you guys are actually responsible for leading a huge community. Therefore, you guys need to be able to demonstrate real leadership by not only completing the work, but also by being liked, respected, and trusted in the community. That goes a long way. Another thing is criticism. People are frustrated and there's a decent reason behind that. Why are people topics being deleted? Why are they getting forum banned? I haven't personally witnessed it myself, but I've got that through reading this topic. Y'all need to be more understanding and overall nice. Imagine if one of the topics that was deleted was instead locked and the last message from one of the staff read: "Hey, we understand your frustration. However, the way you've gone about expressing X is not acceptable for X reasons. I am going to lock this topic, but you can feel free to contact me personally and we can discuss. Regards, X admin." That's obviously an example, but that indirectly shows something to the rest of the community. That shows you guys have patience by not just banning them right away (obviously within limitations), shows you actually care about the players. And that's essentially what leads to being liked and respected. Be nice, let people express their concerns within limitations. Management needs to make an effort to gel the community back together. I would highly recommend one of the leaders from LSRP to make a forward-looking statement where the community feels like they're being led by people who care about them. And once the server launches, to actually act upon that. Acknowledging your team's short-comings would be even better, it shows accountability. Just a transparent, honest message to the whole community would, in my opinion, bring back some respect and relief from the community. And that statement shouldn't probably be put out now, but maybe when the server releases or close to being released. You guys probably know a better time than I do. The bottom line is that the leadership needs to gain the trust and respect of the community again because it has been lost. Lastly, I'd like to thank everyone from the management team. Kane and Martin, you guys are obviously the backbone of this whole project and without you guys, this would never be possible. I am very appreciative everything you guys have done and you guys have my full support. A special thank you to Kane though. Even though I pointed something negative here, your activity and responsiveness have not gone unnoticed. Thank you for being available and responsive to players and that's on top of all the development work you've done/are doing. My message to the community: Brudda's, I know what has happened isn't the best and shit happens, but fuck we're all gonna tap in when LSRP releases so let's just try to show some sorta support to the people who lead this project. None of us have said thank you or be appreciative of what's been going on. The last update was on July 13 so it's not all that bad and in the back of our minds, we atleast know that work is being done. Let's just try taking it easy on these guys. Hopefully things will get better soon.
