So I totally understand that you can't be told certain things in OOC context whether through game help or ooc.
But I do think you guys go a little crazy with it sometimes. Example:
I recently asked how I forget something, since memorizing something is a feature.
I was told to ask IC how to forget something. Now do you realize how stupid that would be? If I'm a living breathing character in the world and I straight up ask you, "So hey chum, how do I forget something I remembered?"
Whether people have just been beaten into submission to repeat "Find out IC" without fail or it's a reflexive response I get it but come on here guys.
Also, it's been hinted at that RP is the main way to get ahead, and I have found some instances of run here, do that, watch this guy, spy on this guy etc etc. But these fall under the same issues that IG jobs have in my opinion, they require days/weeks of effort to get paid (At least on the spying side). I personally am a big proponent of effort based advancement in games. Put in a shit load of effort and get something for it and maybe that's just not how this place works and I'm not trying to tell you how it to run shit or anything, again just sharing my feelings.
On the subject of RP advancement be it cash/social/gear whatever. It's been hinted at that the sky is the limit, think up some crazy shit and do it with risk/reward and gain/consequence as the barometer to success. But nowhere do I see a hint of it really except for via help NOTES where it mentions crimes that aren't coded.
So if say me just emoting/posing doing shit and tossing a note in and waiting for admin approval/denial/consequence to come raining down on me is an issue, I think that needs to be spelled out MUCH better than it currently is.
Why? I've ran around this damn town like a chicken with my head cut off trying to find coded things to do to make money, again back on that effort/reward way I tend to play.
While I totally understand some folks might be happy to sit in a bar or in their apartment for hours of play and talk on the sic, play on the grid and I'm not judging them. I just wonder if there is truly a place for action oriented folks? (Players).
Now I also think I might have made a mistake with my first character archetype trying to do something that appears to not really be in demand or coded much, so I think maybe recommending combat to new players might be good? Because it seems like there is always someone trying to fuck someone up in the Mix.
In finishing, I might be totally wrong on all this, but it's because I have such limited info and experience. There is only so many inferences I can make and so many times I can ask a question before I give up hitting the find out IC wall on issues that I really shouldn't find out ic.
Frustrated, but loving the game, just can't figure the shit out.
