You can turn it off by going into interface and unchecking player titles under display, this will only turn it off for you, but you won't see private anymore.

Ours rules are posted as follows:

This is strictly forbidden and will lead to ban:

- Changing COLOR in chat messages.
- Using GM tag when you are not a member of the Vanillagaming Staff.
- Racism.
- Spam.
- Insulting donators for donating.
- Insulting Staff Members
- Continuously insulting & harassing other players
- Stating false claims of / generally mocking staff members in relation to their staff position

First offense : 5 hours mute
Second offense : 1 day ban
Third offense : 5 days ban
Fourth offense : Permanent Ban.

This rule will be enforced very stricly from now on, so watch out what are you saying on world chat.



Spam is defined as a mass of unwanted or irrelevant messages

(results of a google search of spam)
noun
irrelevant or inappropriate messages sent on the Internet to a large number of recipients.

verb
send the same message indiscriminately to (large numbers of recipients) on the Internet



As is pertains to us in the game, any messages posted in world chat in a matter of a short time that are are duplicates of the same message and or a slight variation are considered spam. There are few allowed exceptions to this rule, guild recruitment, LFG, and selling/trading items, these are a necessary part of the game and are needed for it to work. Even these can become a spam problem if someone is posting them too often and creating a issue, they can be warned and if it does not stop actions can be taken (has happened, but is rare). As far as posting pvp kills in world chat, it is not a necessary thing for the game to go on and will be dealt with as spam.

I had that on retail too, there is nothing you can do about it. And retail GMs wont do anything either.

It's up to you to make the decision whom to trust and whom not. Nobody can do that for you.



I know for a fact that GMs would take action back in retail vanilla against scammers. I don't think ninjas got any punishment or warnings but I know for a fact if you was to scam someone, for mats, recipes, selling fake items etc, the victim would receive their items back and the scammer would receive a warning/suspension/ban depending on their current status.

Well, there we have the story you recall from someone on the one hand and the story I experienced myself on the other.

Tomb said they didn't always do something. Clearly it's not just to steal materials that were inteded to be part of a fair trade/deal. We will have to work out a blizzlike ruleset for that. But firstly, we will have to elaborate exactly how blizzard (blueposts) dealt with such people.

If I remember correctly, there were not a lot of blue posts at this time in the game if any, normally it was a high ranking member that would answer.  Almost always the answer was, not really sure of the details of the situation, but blizzard can whatever they want to maintain the basic spirit of the game.

If a player ninjas mats on VG do GMs intervene? Or do they simply turn a blind eye and assist an obviously devious player in sabatoge against a rule abiding player?

In my opnion, please correct me if i am wrong, if someone steals something, anything from anyone, and you have the ultimate power as a GM to do nothing or correct the situation, you are indeed chosing one side or the other.  Therefore doing nothing is chosing the side, aka assisting, the deviant act and person in question.  I agree that there are dicks all over the internet, but this is one of the rare cases where there are people in higher places (GMs) that can actually address these situations, and correct them.

I for the most part do agree with you. While it is up to the player to make smart decisions with their valuables like it is in any market, things do still happen, people you think you can trust can turn out to be a total thief. Have had numerous people people ask for some assistance with these kind of situations, even had one person I talked to that had stole someones mats and ninja logged tell me to ban him for it because he had people do it to him and hated it. But my biggest issue with the answer to this question is saying no, gm 's do nothing, this is like telling players they are aloud to be as dirty and nasty as they want and nothing will ever happen. We all know that there are people that do these things out there and telling them they are aloud too with no possibility of consequences is just no good for any of us.

Events can get pretty crazy at times, players running around and killing each other only makes it harder to host and slows everything down, we tried to let the players move around as much as we could but we had to put a end to the madness, there were numerous players that sat around the arena and had no issues and then there were numerous players running around killing each other and this is why people end up getting slept. It was the first event that skurri hosted and we ran into a bit of issue with the server DCing and losing teams which only made it worse. We tried to only sleep the players that were causing issues but with so many people things happen.

lanori is in denial if he cant realize that taking action on alt+f4-"abusers" himself was a mistake. He should have done one of 2 things:

1) Ask another GM who aint involved in the fucking premade to take a look at the situation.
2) bring up the issue on the GM-forums, and keep stressing how badly this problem needs a fix.

But he chose the 1 way which undoubtedly would make him look like a classic power-abuser. Way to go lol. The only thing that really brings a smile to me through this BG situation, is that he fucked his own farming over by trying to make "a better pvp environment" on the server.

the irony is so sweet. im laughing all the way to the other server im playing on. standing system ftw



This issue was brought up to the other GM's before action was taken, Vexes was told by a older GM to give out warnings

It was not me that muted you, I didn't even tell the other GM's that I had warned you, so obviously the other GM's are also getting tired of the spam. I suggest you stop before it gets worse for you.  You are actually lucky you got only 60 min, if I had caught you, you would have gotten the full 5 hours.

Chat

This is strictly forbidden and will lead to ban:

- Changing COLOR in chat messages.

- Continuously insulting & harassing other players

10  General Category / General Discussion / Guidelines for lower level BG's on: February 15, 2014, 06:16:34 pm
Making this topic to setup and talk about certain ground rules for lower level bg's, with the current push for twinking lately and with the upcoming update to give us the ability to have 1x xp, lower level bg's will most likely become more and more popular.

Current issues to talk about

Dungeon 2 Set

The admins have had a talk about the Dungeon 2 set and whether it should be allowed in the lower than 60 BG's and our opinion is that it should not be allowed due to a level one wearing such gear puts them a close equivalent to a no geared 60, this would make it extremely unfair to other players

Hakkari items

The 3 hakkari items that can currently be obtained in ways they shouldn't, they have no level requirement on them and are very op for players under 30, therefore also carry a lot of the same feelings as the D2 sets. These items in retail could not be obtained by anyone lower than 46.

Arena grandmaster trinket

The arena grandmaster trinket in retail was actually all and all fairly worthless due to the level requirements put on it, 10-19's bgs being the second popular after 60's really kind of made this trinket fairly overlooked, it was only good for a few levels, you could not get it until around 35 and there wasn't much of a use for it at that level. But since it can be optained here, and there is a 30 min CD on it. I will leave it up to you guys what we should do.

Rocket boots

Since the rocket boots currently do not work the way they are intended and  have been a issue for some time with pvpers, it will be even more so with lower level bgs. Players have less options to keep up with players using these items, and with the malfunction not working they are a 100% chance for long term speed increases that can be used over and over. Please leave some feed back on what your thoughts are with these items and should they be allowed.

Please feel free to suggest any ideas you might have to help the bg's run smoothly
