The inactivity of this forum.
Thu Apr 02, 2015 11:06 pm by Burkman
It's depressing to see how inactive it has been recently. I mean, everybody is pretty much primarily posting in the never ending thread now and there's not enough people here to make this place really booming. We need to find some way to bring more people here before this place just fades into nothingness...

I know for a fact that a lot of boards out there are thriving because of how many people are there. We just need to get back into the game and pull people here. However, where we obtain these people might matter, because we don't to end up pulling in douches like those at Selkath.

I understand that people are busy these days, but it doesn't seem like they're rarely at their computer anymore. I know most of you are still dicking around with your computer. I don't know how we …

Happy New Year OT! We may be dying... BUT WE'RE STILL HERE! We had an... interesting year last year. Vice Admin Burkman is taking a long earned vacation and Uly is stepping into his position. Well...

Like all my polls, this started with a disagreement with an OT'er...

As one who currently works at one... I've never seen a robbery occur at a gas station before... so I wouldn't know. :\

I would think if someone is planning on robbing a gas station... they're going to do it regardless of how many employees are present... because well... they planned to do it in the first place. If they're set to do it it's not gonna matter how many employees are in there. They come in toting a weapon no one is going to risk their health over what's in a gas station's register. xD

The correct answer is yes... they would be less likely to get robbed. I'm not saying they'd never get robbed, but it would occur less frequently. How many videos you see of 2 peeps at a gas station gettin robbed? Not as many as when it's one dude. I feel a 2nd person would deter a fair number of would-be robbers who come in with a gun or knife planning to hold someone at the end of a weapon and demand the money in the register.

Long story short, one person should never be left alone in a gas station... That's asking for someone to get a bright idea and hold the place up, that's what. People get hurt/killed that way.

I think the people working at gas stations should carry AK-47s. That seems like that'd drop the likelihood of robberies..

It might make shoplifting more difficult and have a discouraging effect, but I wouldn't say robberies (like armed robberies) would be much affected...

You don't seen to get how criminals work... >.>

Most crimes aren't spur of the moment... at least not something that they walked in and thought... hey imma rob this place right now. If they're just trying to jack something off the shelves they might not try a place with two people simply because they don't want to be seen. But if it's an armed robbery... they aint gonna give a shit about 2 people or 1.

I don't think they're all professional criminals either. Or with a gang. You usually see one dude holding one other dude at gunpoint or with a knife. If they're acting alone and a second person is working there, they might come back later or plan out another place.

It's just a bad idea to leave people alone like that, in any case!

I don't think Uly really understands the criminal's mind.

Professional criminals don't rob gas stations... again... you clearly don't get how criminals work. If it's an armed robbery they aren't going to give two fucks about 1 or 2 people. If you had say like 5 or 6 in the store or station they might MIGHT be hesitant. But if you're going for ARMED ROBBERY that means you're dedicated... and aren't the brightest. If you're going for shoplifting (the stuff on the shelves and not the register) then you'd worry about how many people there are.

Seems to me like it's usually a dude acting alone. Hard to keep track of 2 people. You guys must think a dude with a gun is a fearless superman. What you think he's gonna do, shoot both of them dead if things go wrong? I doubt it. A couple of murders would be a big deal. They'll want an easy target. That means a lone dude at a register.

You know, the point I'm trying to make is not that robberies WON'T happen. It's that they'll occur less frequently if 2 persons are always present at these places. I believe that...

Depends on if they've done it before. If you got a guy where it was his first time robbing something, he might get hesitant. Each criminal is different.

Um... in many cases it's actually 2 or 3 people that would rob something like a gas station or ATM. Anyone that's going to pull an armed robbery off knows that the person behind the counter isn't going to risk their life in a gas station for such petty money. Uly Imma just say u don't know what yer talkin' 'bout (what's new?).

Just shoot one in the leg and then you're back to one. Arned robberies at a gas station wont slow because of two people.

It would reduce the chance of the actual robbers robbing the store.

However, the employees might be more encouraged to tip themselves a bit more often. It's like "Hey, if he's doing it, I may as well do it too."

1 person is easier to control than 2.
