PARALAKE POLICE DEPARTMENT
POLICE COMPLAINT CHANGES


Good afternoon guys, @TinySlayer, @Brinch and @Samuel have been working incredibly hard on moving the Police Complaints from the Forum & Google Drive and onto our PLPD Online platform, this is a brilliant transition and will really help the process of complaints and the case management.

Previously, we have used the forums and Google Drive to handle complaints which is great, however it's extremely complex and is incredibly time consuming. Now, written complaints will go through www.plpd.online and you will need to sign in through Steam to create a complaint, this is so that you can interact with the assigned Internal Affairs investigator. Of course, if you don't want to sign in for whatever reason, you can approach a PD member and ask them to submit the complaint on your behalf, but keep in mind; this means that the investigator will not be able to contact you.

Once again, tremendous work from the Information Technology team! If you encounter any problems, please open a ticket on PLPD Online or contact @TinySlayer on the forums.

PARALAKE POLICE DEPARTMENT
POLICE WHITELIST

Can you believe its been over 2 years since the original idea of the Police Whitelist? In August 2014 we began working towards some sort of whitelist/rank system for the Police Department. I was tired of the Police Department being so 'throw away', everything you worked on just disappeared when you resigned from officer, I really wanted to change this and make things more permanent. I thought that the Police Department at the time had so much potential and so much could be made of it. In January 2015 we announced the Police Supervisor system which whitelisted the Lieutenant and the newly added Police Sergeant job, this was pretty much where the crusade for improving the Police Department started.

Since then, we've worked on the whitelist to where it is today, in April 2016, we added the Ranked Supervisor system which added the ranking system which required you to apply for Senior Officer. The past couple of years have been great and its been amazing seeing everything come together and the amount of individuals that have been so committed to making a change within the Police Department.

As I mentioned in the PLPD Christmas Post:

After a lot of spoiling in the shoutbox I am pleased to announce that the new overhauled phone app is now complete and you can check it out on the server.
The most notable gameplay change is that instead of being able to get anyone's phone number by adding them as a buddy, you now have to manually add each contact from the contacts tab.
The only exception to this is if you are mutual buddies with someone. In that case they appear in your contacts automatically.

Full list of changes:
  • Completely reworked phone app giving it an updated look
  • Phone app is now split into three tabs: Dialer, Call history, Contacts
  • Contacts are now seperate from your buddies
  • Adding someone as buddy no longer reveals their phone number
  • You can now give every contact a different avatar (Right click on contact to edit)
  • The call history shows you the 20 most recent calls you made
  • The messenger app uses the same avatars as the phone contacts now
  • Updated the call app

Some screenshots of the new features:

Hello everyone, as many of you are aware the server over the past few days has experienced malfunctions, errors, and crashes very frequently. We recently purchased a new server with the latest components available, however something appears to have not worked properly, it is unknown if this was a hardware or software fault.
We have moved back to our old server and for the moment it seems to be behaving properly and has stopped crashing.

Because of issues over the weekend and start of the week we are giving everyone that had active premium 1 additional week for free.

Hi guys,

Recently the staff team has been reviewing rules and have decided that some changes needed to be made, so below I'll list the edited rules and what's been added or changed:​

  • 2.9 - Text chat

  • 3.7 Properties

  • 3.9 Placing props

  • 5.1 Mugging
Best regards,

Senior administration.​
Hi guys, fairly recently Fredy has purchased a new Forum plugin. This allows users to link their TS3 unique ID with the forums, which means any ranks you gain on the forums, will automatically be added to your teamspeak account! This will be extremley helpful and was a great investment, so be sure to thank @Fredy!

Here's how to get it setup:

  • [​IMG] Firstly, hover over your profile in the top right, and go down to teamspeak
  • [​IMG] Once clicked you want to go onto "Sync Account"
  • [​IMG] Once you click on "Sync Account" go over to teamspeak, click "Ctrl+I (or go to settings, identities), once done copy and paste the unique ID found here, [​IMG]
  • [​IMG] Once you've got your Unique ID, copy and paste it into the "Sync Account" box, reconnect on teamspeak and all of the permissions you should have will be given to you!
If anyone experiences any issues with this, please send me a forum PM so I can try to resolve the issue for you.

PERPHeads Community Survey & Open Discussion

Hi guys, hope everyone's well. Before we get into some serious boring stuff, I'd like to thank everyone again for participating in the community awards, it was a great outcome and it was amazing to get everyone involved!
[​IMG]

So, I resigned from Senior Administrator on the 4th of September 2015 which is crazy as I've never ever played on a Garry's Mod community as a regular user, everywhere I've joined I've pursued to get staff, so playing a whole year as a user has been a different experience for me. Although I've left the staff team, I'm still incredibly interested in affairs within the community. I think I can speak for most people in the community, I've met a lot of great people in this community which I wouldn't have met if PERPHeads wasn't here, I can even go to the lengths of saying I've now made one of my best friends from PERPHeads (shoutout to my outlaw @chrissy, thoughts are with you fam)

Besides, that's enough about me as that's not why we're here... Essentially, I'd like to hear the community's thoughts, comments, concerns and views about the PERPHeads community; staff team, server, forums, etc, we're coming up to 2017 and it'd be nice to iron out any problems and even have some things changed. Now, please don't think this thread is because of all this "AR Drama" that's going on, this is genuinely something I've been planning for a while to do before 2017.

To add, I don't want people thinking this is some sort of drama or beef epidemic, it's the complete opposite, I can...
