The characters whose player you want to know thread

Postby Millhouse » Tue Aug 23, 2016 4:09 pm

Honest question here, but why was that thread locked? It was ten years old and going along with no issues that I was aware. Obviously if someone broke the 4DR that post should be moderated but it's not against the forum rules to discuss who plays whom is it?

They can change the rules at any time.

I agree that it only seemed to need a post moderation.

I had to shut it down because, lets be honest, it encourages ooc activity.

For ten years it was not a problem.
We now have a few groups who are obviously using ooc to create some very unfair situations to the rest of the player base.
So, in order to protect all of us, the thread had to be locked.

I wonder if knowing that these people exist will change whom you might choose to blame? :idea:

I don't think this thread was a placement of blame. It's more of a, "What's the reason?" (as a clear one wasn't really given when it was locked, though it did give me a chuckle).

The reason makes enough sense and all that was looked for. :)

Yes, that's why I framed my question as an "honest" one. :wink:

I'm just still a little unclear if it's ok to discuss which players play which characters. While I choose to keep that info secret, there are about half a dozen ways I could reveal them on the forum (I.e. "I AM...", "Character Images", "RP Praise", "Dead Characters").

Is it just that it's not ok to solicit that info from other players? I just want a little clarity.

Thank you both, I was just anticipating some other posts which will now probably not be made.

Yes there are ways around this, but that would involve intent.

I didn't find the thread I wanted, but there is an old thread on this forum (page 10 iirc?) entitled "Do you want to know?"
From that it appears that the majority of players, though tempted, do not want their rp affected by knowing who plays the others.

I saw a bunch of threads that could be necro'd that would directly address things we are facing now.
I may surrender to that different type of temptation yet.

Thanks Rmak... I havent seen you on the IRC lately. You are missed.

I've seen some intent in cantr chat too , I'll let pd know if I see it again.

Don't worry I'm still in the irc channel from time to time ...it's always interesting to see what is said.

I've also noticed some borderline stuff in the Cantr IRC that I have logged. Who should I send it to, especially if members of staff are involved?

You can send it to Pilot, or to me.

Pilot or JM is best...they head the depts and have the authority to take actions.

What is crucial to this is documentation.
People are unlikely to act upon hearsay.
So copy and paste the incidents in question and send it off!
