A short memo about Server LS etiquette

Post by Scott » Sat Sep 09, 2017 12:53 pm

The server LS is an awesome feature. But for each new character to Kupo one more pearl is created! And the more people in an LS the more easily it can get out of hand. The server LS is a great way to get parties and accrue knowledge; and people who have been on this server a long time are more likely to keep the server LS equipped if everyone follows these simple rules below. Let's keep this feature fun for everyone!

• No GoT spoilers… No GoT spoilers! NO GoT SPOILERS!!!!!

• This server is not retail. Also, while it’s based off DSP it’s not DSP. It’s its own server. Don’t spread false information because that’s the way it was in retail during this era or that’s the way it was in Nasomi or Shinra. It may very well be the same here or it may not… If you're not sure give a disclaimer with it. Know first, don’t assume.

• Questions that can be answered quickly are okay. Cluster conversations about the inner mechanics of camping Leaping Lizzy and what TP moves he uses and how many placeholders and that on retail you went 1/1 but here it's 1/108 and if he likes cheese with his wine are not. They annoy most everyone else that has the shell equipped. Ask your question in the LS and if your question becomes elongated move it to a /tell conversation. You may even make a long term friend this way! No answer? We have a Wiki for that.

• Pointing out the obvious to the oblivious here but keep your drama and hate speeches in a private LS or to /tells.

And please feel free to send a /tell in game to Godmode or Tyseng if you have any questions about this place or game mechanics in general. I don't have all the answers but I can definitely point you in the right direction if I don't!

Couldn't agree more.

When I first began on this server a few months ago, the server LS was fantastic. People were helpful, cheery, and highly respectful of one another. Since then it has turned into, at times, a political warzone, racial/sexual preference bashing discussions, a stage for pointless arguements between two people that the other 99% of the server see as spam, and generally, everything that the shell was not a few months ago.

I am all for meaningful conversations, jokes among new and existing friends, and legitimate questions, but the petty, epeen flexing, vulgar spam needs to stop. We can do better than that. We are better than that.

Here's to a better server LS going forward.

GM's will remove pearls for abuse of the server LS

Greater punishment will be pursued if players continue to spam by other means
