Special treat for anyone still lurking here four years after this server died. I un-hid all of the old posts and such for nostalgia purposes. Have fun.

PostSubject: Suggestion On Being A Good GM   Sat Aug 23, 2008 12:14 pm

I'm not one but here are some things I had thought of. Meow, feel free to tell them I'm horribly wrong.

--Ban Hackers
You should always ban hackers when you find one but there are other jobs besides just banning hackers. Unless you want to split up jobs and each GM have a different job, try to do the other stuff too.

--Hold Events
Not everyday but every once in a while. This is usually much better when you have more than one GM to help host.

--Summon
We all like them but make sure you don't crash the server.

--Help People!
This one is ignored a lot of the time. Maybe it's because I was a Bishop, but I don't really see the point in not reviving someone who is dead at Zakum if they ask for your help. It's not like you are out training or something and it wont be that hard for you to help. I know with that one time Pevv was hack hunting so that's excused but just make sure to tell the people that and if they get mad, oh well.

--No Freebees
Don't give out stuff to individuals. To be safe anytime you give anyone anything make sure another GM knows about it to verify you are ok to do it. If you weren't supposed to then at least you were both stupid and it wasn't just you.

--BE A TEAM
Work together people really. Don't bish about eachother to people. It makes everyone look bad. Last time our GMs failed at this even though they had all started out as friends. Stuff like 'I don't think they deserved it'.

--Respect Players
Just because they aren't GMs doesn't mean they are less than you. They just aren't as well known. For example, last time around, at some point, the GMs turned against me too. Because I wasn't a GM I got ignored...At which point I didn't want to be around anymore. All of my friends got GM and then stopped being my friends. That's just lame guys. You don't have to ignore players. You can still be friends with normal players. In fact I suggest you should. Just don't give them free stuff.

Anyway, that's just some suggestions I have before Meow starts up the new version. Once the GMs stopped doing these things the whole server went nuts and lost total control. I used to really look up to GMs and had a lot of pride in our GMs when I first started. I want that back. That's why I wanted to be a GM in the first place.

About the help people thing, the reason we don't ressurect is we CONSTANTLY get whispers and smegas about OMG PZL KUM REVIV MI @ ZAKUM. If we responded to all or even the majority of those whispers we'd be doing it all day.

Hmm...I personally don't see anything wrong with it still. Sad

I was a bishop so if I had the ability to warp I woulda done it all the time.

I know it can get annoying tho. :p

Believe me, it's hardcore D: >

By the time we go to revive someone theirs another 5 requests via whispare/smega etc.
And if you think about it, how much typing is it, it's like a non-stop constant finger excerise once we log in. Lol o_o"

Example : Reviving someone @ zakum - !warpto [playername]
: Getting someone a item from roll back - !warpto [playername], *Open GM handbook, Look for Item, use Code in MS*, and by the time you find the item, you've got ALOT of whispares.


It's very...Stressful 8D

I have some more suggestions. I'm glad I'm a mod cuz i didn't want to post this on the public forum.

Guys, if you are in game and afk please go into hide mode. Otherwise players end up huddled around your afk avatar thinking you are ignoring them. Also, if you are online and not actively busy, try to talk to people. Lately it's felt like there are never active GMs on and that's kinda stressing.

You know I love you guys! You do what I can't and I respect you for it! Very Happy I know it's not easy being a GM (that's why I'm not one, lol, though I have considered it). I'm very proud of our server and thanks for helping it be the best! =D

>>personal request<<
One of your new roles is selling nx that isn't in the shop. It's not pressing but at some point, if you guys see me online, could u contact me so i can get the rest of my nx? You guys know I live for nx so I'm really looking forward to getting the ones I'm missing. xD

Seeing as your not a GM, and probably don't know how these newer players act, its not that good to being giving criticism. We dont revive people because if people always got rez'd the game would be to easy. Thanks. We already sell NX that isn't in the shops as long as you provide the ID. Check your facts, thanks.

Half of your "recommendations" aren't recommendations at all, your telling us to do what we're not.

You're right I'm not a GM. Sorry about the first post in general. It's really old and the server runs different than that now. Please don't pay attention to the first post. You're right. It does seem preachy. That really is my bad. D:

I knew that you sold nx I was just asking the next time I'm on for someone to see me so I could buy. Sad I wasn't saying you don't. It was a personal request aside from the comment. Please don't hate me Ele. I really wanna be friends.
