[SUGGESTION] Disallow Pizzaboys/Medics to help crimminals in BR's DROT replied in Questions and Suggestions Archive
Civilians are not meant to participate in criminal activities.
Same goes for paramedics, they should not solely assist criminals.
Stick to your role.
Squad/Gang - Member Activity Report 2019 - 2021 DROT replied in News and Announcements
November 2019 - November 2021
For those who wish to know more about how their own organisation did over the past two years or for those who are merely interested in learning about the activity state of organisations on SAES, here's a detailed list of squads and gangs who have been awarded the "most active gang/squad" status as well as records made related to amounts of active members.
Stats collected range from the earliest accessible period which is November 2019, up to the most recent monthly GM results (November 2021). Because of large amounts of gangs and squads that still are or are no longer present in our community today; the listing only includes organisations which were in the top three of any category displayed below. Organisations that no longer exist were not included.

Reduce prison time DROT replied in Questions and Suggestions Archive
As said above, we've already reduced the jail time by a great margin. Reducing it further would make jailbreaks pointless because you'd be out before the jailbreak is even initiated. It would also affect balance of various activities such as Br where more criminals would be present due to ability to return more frequently even after an arrest.
If you want do spend less time in jail you can use /sur which will reduce your jail time to roughly a minute only.
Changing the BR holding system! DROT replied in Questions and Suggestions Archive
"BR holding" is not an intended concept, it was made possible because of a flaw in the script and is considered abuse of the BR system.
BR becomes a BR once there is a sufficient number of gang members in the bank, who are in the process of cracking. Up until that moment the BR is nonexistent and can be overtaken by any other gang who shows up with the number of members required to initiate a BR. One player standing in a marker has no purpose.
Reserving a bank for your gang in advance by sending one player over there or calling it in team chat is player made construct and not in any way encouraged or sanctioned by the rules. There is no reason for you to send one person over and risk alerting the police, you can simply not do that.
Finally, we're currently working on means through which the event of cops switching spawns to prevent a BR should be made impossible or far more difficult.
[CHANGE] Include the normal "Police" class in the 10 minimal count of official squads. DROT replied in Questions and Suggestions Archive
There is no efficient way to constantly keep track of gang members who temporarily quit their organisations and use police spawns to manipulate the system. Unfortunately, merely having a rule forbidding players from doing this has proven ineffective, which is why the current system was implemented.
For this reason the cop limit will remain to take only squad members into consideration.
Furthermore, judging by the BR logs, the only prolonged period without sufficient cop presence is between midnight and noon.
[SUGGESTION] Make a new rule about kamikazing shamal DROT replied in Questions and Suggestions Archive
@crash Same as in case of any other event of collateral damage, such as criminals killing each other with grenades while trying to damage a cop, it depends on the situation and whether it was intentional, careless or accidental.
