I feel I don't deserve the LP veteran status as I only played on LP for a week until it died.
Can someone remove it as I feel guilty for having it because im not really a LP veteran xD

im a lemonpunch vet, in the bottom of my dresser sits a collection of roleplay medals, they were awarded to me as a acknowledgement of my service in the lp marine corps. Yet, their only purpose is to remind me of what I did, the horrors... The /mes were so brutal, we didn't know who was malicious and who was just a gold member, so we just pk'd them indiscriminately with gbombs, guns and even our bare hands. I'm not a veteran, I'm a monster.

I think the text is 'mildly' insulting to what was a community that brought us all together. It should be something a bit more cheerful imo. Something to remember the good times we as a community had there.

Also are people manually given 'veteran' status?

What do you suggest?

Nah, it's given to everyone on the site at the moment. I figured that pretty much everyone were lemonpunch users anyway.

No, keep it as a trophy.

If it becomes a tag, then everyone has it, and it stops becoming special.
I mean come on the only reason people want something more than a trophy is so they can be recognised as 'a special member'
but if everyone has it, it ain't special

trophies are fine.

I'm not saying it's offensive really, but the part about the remains is more of what I was talking about. If you were a veteran then you probably had some input on the community in some way or another, no matter how big or small. I think I'd rather look at that trophy and get a nice reminder from it than one of dead/remains sort of thing. Especially since it went down hill so suddenly.

Ah, okay.

let me take you back
this was back in '15, august, i was part of the 3/9 gold members infantry regiment, we were heading into quick thread valley, heavy shitposting activity back then. we had to clear 'em out.
so we were rolling back the pages, open field, suddenly up ahead, a bait-thread village, lotsa newbies running around up there.
and then it came, a shitpost, we saw the flash, came from the thread. one of my friends picked it up, it was a stock photo, 5.56-shitpost caliber, he burnt his hand and he dropped it.
our sergeant major ordered us to halt, get behind some rocks, sure enough he was calling a CM airstrike on the thread, we were gonna lock it.
so it blows up, and we roll in, amongst the dead we only find innocent hl2rpers, and then suddenly, 'posts have been made on this thread since you last viewed' i turn to my left, fire 2 dumb ratings straight into the shitposters head. only when i check the body. it was a finlay russell
i killed a gold member
and here i stand, with you people having the gut to give me a medal for it.
i'm a roleplay criminal
i deserve the chair, not a medal ceremony

it pretty much cheers me up because it reminds me of LP's death
