this issue is out of our hands as we cannot micromanage each individual server owner.

Please follow the instructions given in this forum post

Thank you!

People already server hop in order to get gear, what difference does it make if you limit when server owners can restart/start their servers.

The main point of the OP is that currently no save is called when you die. This is the underlining problem with the system, If the character data is reset when you die and saved; this would no longer be a problem.

This is happening to a lot of people (seen on the DayZ Reddit). It's frustrating.

Server reporting shouldn't be the only option for this. Maybe server restarts should create a "save" and then restart, rather than rolling back to an "auto-save" (I'll admit I'm not sure how the process works).

Man, this just shows how pathetic people are, poor sports.
What they might they have to do is disable the ability to restart server on the fly like that. IE, it needs to be on a schedule, only changable when server is in process of restarting. So the hive disallows any restart requests unless request is made during the preset time period.

Ex. Admin sets restarts every 4hrs(12:00, 4:00, 8:00) with hive, once that is sent to the hive, that admin cannot change restart schedule or restart manually until 1 min before and after the hour(ex. 11:59-12:01).

Any requests for restart data not during those 2mins, is ignored, even if the server has had a malfunction.

If you limit when they can restart, the admins doing this will simply shut down the server. I agree with the idea of a save being called when a restart is requested.

OP, if you've noticed this happen multiple times, enough to make you believe it was the admin and not a coincidence; You should report the server doing this, see this post for more details. (

Who cares if they shut it down, people will stop using that server then, since it could be shutdown for 4hrs. Gradually people will look past that server.

But it means he's basically invulnerable and has free roam of the land's loot.

They can then easily hop on to your server and start screwing around.

If they die, they can just re-gear to perfection on their server very, very easily.
