Random thoughts that don’t necessarily pertain to the above or specific events… but might! The usual “I am not an admin and these thoughts are my own” apply.
I feel that NAK rules are never intended to be rigid and are always vague and open to interpretation. If you think you’re riding the line, you’re probably over it. If you think you need to ask, you probably already know the answer. And if you’re being told to stop, it probably doesn’t matter why.
We’re here to do this together, no matter how “together” is defined, it’s to have fun as a group. Trying to work around the rules, or reasons, or justifications or requests or demands to stop only results in conflict and strife and the opposite. This includes pushing the limits of any of the above.
Now… all of that? It’s all opinion… of everyone involved from all angles. And everyone should at least be considering how their actions and decisions appear to others, since we’re here to do this together. If not? Why continue? Is it just to irritate? Or just don’t care how it makes your friends feel? Or are we not all supposed to even try to be friends?
We can all do better here. Everyone.
Second, less serious note: Garage “rules”. Individuals can already lock their personal favorite vehicle they worked hard for, and it would be really nice to ask the current commander if that’s okay, but I think we need a soft agreement between commanders, who can unlock anything if the need arises, that they won’t just snatch “personal” vehicles without a reason. Don’t need any approval, just let them know why you’re doing it and that’s that. Again, my opinion, not a rule.
Third, lonewolfing isn’t really a thing here… but running around creating chaos for the faction is a problem. The commander can certainly let people solo any objective or task, but when they say stop, they’re the boss. Messing up our aggression status, launching stuff from base, etc is going to cause unwanted trouble that most commanders won’t appreciate. Ask first at the very least. Present your plan. “I’d like to take my Hemtt and follow the other teams around grabbing tires for my tire collection.” probably will be met with a counter proposal “how about you bring the whole vehicle back instead”.
Let’s keep this fun for everyone for as long as it lasts folks.
Now… about those tires…
