Building an inclusive community and fun gameplay experiences rely heavily on taking feedback (both good and bad). Let us know where or what we can improve to ensure you have the most optimal experience!
In the grand scheme of things is this really that important? I could name you guys a dozen more important issues to post about other than advertisements using the in-game legend number of a garage.
If you want to discuss improving RP then you need to discuss people ability to step outside of their comfort zones. Right now people are comfortable chilling with their same group of friends at the garage, or jamestown, or where ever. Cops and EMS are still comfortable dealing with situations the same as they always have dealt with situations. The only thing that can improve RP is each and every one of us stepping outside of our comfort zone and pushing ourselves.
You can see it as metagaming, but there are always different perspectives you can take on it. I see it as one GPS company holding a monopoly on San Andreas-imported cars, and since everybody's systems align in terms of noted/marked locations, people refer to them as such due to ease of accessibility. When roleplaying in a public server, one must consider all sides--specifically, the less experienced people who don't know that 2/6 is called Auto Exotic on Elgin Ave. Even though it may look stupid, it's a recognizable slang term for a landmark location.
Its a way of address like a postal code in some way. This also in no way is meta gaming.. Some people just don't know street names etc. So instead of each time having to explain where something is... I like the way how it is right now.
