Remember:  a VanillaGaming employee will never ask for your password.  Never share your account information with anyone.

Deleted characters cannot be retrieved.  Once deleted, they are gone.

We are still looking for a few more Testers to help assist the Developers as they keep working to improving the server!  If you think you have what it takes to help the identify bugs and test new fixes and content, please write us an application.  Testers gain access to the Test Server, get the inside scoop on upcoming updates, and get to take an active role in the server's development.  A great way to show off your big-testing skills and impress the Developers is by writing bug reports in our Bugs and Glitches section. 

Apply today!

Greetings,

Thank you for your interest on our server.  If you do encounter any vulnerabilities, please do kindly share them with us.  However, keep in mind that we do have strict policies against hacking or cheating, so please consult with us before taking any in-game action that involves third party software which modifies the game files.  

Best,

Cozmos


P.S.  The ordinary method for a character name change is through the donation panel.  When 20 donation coins are spent on a rename, the character has the opportunity to select a new name during the next login.  This is achieved through an automated GM-level command.

Greetings,

The Administrators (Zeard, Sins, and Ergamnon) can always be reached via PM.  But even when they are not presently online, you may be sure that  the forums and the live server are always actively monitored by some Staff member.

Is there anything that I can assist you with, Tollhs?

Kind wishes,

Cozmos

Greetings,

Thank you for your interest in promoting a fair, impartial, and highly professional Staff of Gamemasters.  In selecting and evaluating Gamemasters, nothing is more important to us than integrity, maturity, and honesty.  We hold all Staff members to a very high ethical standard, outlined in our Staff Code of Conduct.  If you experience any questionable behavior during your interactions with a Gamemaster, please immediately report it to an Admin (Zeard, Sins, Ergamemnon) via a private message (PM). They will promptly and thoroughly investigate.  However, because of the sensitivity of such matters, we ask that all reports of Gamemaster misconduct be submitted via PM, not posted to the Forums.

All the best,

Cozmos

Greetings,

Welcome back to the server.  Please use the VanillaGaming Panel at vanillagaming.org/panel to set a new password.  For security reasons, this is the only method of retrieving a password.  A GameMaster may be able to assist you in-game with retrieving your account name, but no staff member can assist you with retrieving your password except through the panel.  If you are unable to regain access by using the panel, you will need to make a new account.

Best wishes,

Cozmos

Unfortunately, we are having some technical difficulties at the moment.  We are working to get things back up and running as soon as possible, but keep in mind that the hour is late.  In the meantime, thank you all for being patient.

Agreed. The sexually suggestive signature is offensive and will be removed.

12  Community / General Chat / Re: Pvping and Multiboxing on: February 23, 2015, 09:18:54 pm
Greetings,

Allow me to clarify.  In ANY PvP situation, including defensive situations, you are not allowed to multi-box.  Hence, if your group of characters is attacked, you may NOT defend.  Multi-boxing is permitted in PvE situations only.  

In retail, each account required a separate subscription, which greatly reduced the number of multi-boxers.  But here on VanillaGaming, where account creation is completely free, dual boxing is far easier and far less expensive.  This is the reason why we protect individual players from ever suffering disadvantage as a result of multi-boxers.  

Although we do not ban multi-boxing outright, we do not encourage multi-boxing.  Multi-boxers must never attack ordinary players, even if attacked first. Even alt-tabbing and playing each character in sequence, rather than simultaneously, is not permitted.  The risk of having your multiple characters killed is a risk that is voluntarily assumed by the multi-boxer when he chooses to multi-box.

You will get the most beneficial use from multi-boxing inside of instances where PvP encounters are impossible.

Those found to violate this policy will first receive a 5-day ban.  Subsequent violations trigger permanent account suspension.

Best wishes,

Cozmos

Greetings,

We have patiently listened to your evangelism in world chat for many weeks.  However, there is a fine line between tireless political campaign and spam/flame, which we have lately determined that you have crossed.  Thank you for your comments and feedback, but it is time to give it a short rest and allow other threads, other issues, and other players to have a chance on the forums and in world chat.

Best,

Cozmos
