Thread: Wyrom confirmed, GM's are listening and monitoring lnet

    Not that anyone is asking for my take, but I had to tell Wyrom to go fuck himself several times before they tossed a ban at me. So, yeah, from that whole perspective, they/Wyrom is pretty laid back. The part(s) that tend to get him in "trouble" seem to be the use of the mysterious "powers that be" and "Development" and "feedback". Nameless boogie men that never address situations themselves, either in situations like this or balance/development issues on the forums. So even though he has protested that he is not the community manager, the structure of Simutronics has pushed him into that role, for better or worse. Sprinkle in some situations that are poorly handled because of the unexpected role, and you end up with the only person that anyone can reliably address their frustrations at.

    Had you done this in the form of asking a personal favor ("Hey, Zaoloo, we've had some complaints. Do you think you could tone it down a little bit on LNet?), then I wouldn't see a problem.
    This would have been the best way to go about addressing the situation while sorting out the Policy changes.

    If he blames <insert administrative role that probably doesn't really formally exist>, or <those GMs he's totally not in charge of cause volunteers> then he's never at fault, for anything.

More than anyones script code knowhow.
    Now it makes sense why pk is so interested, thinking he's gonna end up getting some free subpoenas out of the deal.

    What a stupidhead.

    Yeah is feedback actually above Wyrom? I could have sworn from the days of the previous PM (which I can never remember his name for reason) that the PM just answered most emails to feedback himself. In fact I remember when I first came back to GS years ago after a 10+ year break, billing wouldn't let me reactivate my accounts because I couldn't remember the billing information on it (I think I had deleted the information or made it gibberish before I quit) but I had the correct answer to the security question. I wrote to feedback and explained the story and <insert previous PM here> wrote back and said he would allow me to reactivate my account.

    All of this is kind of weird in retrospect because I'm pretty sure all the information you need these days is the answer to your security question.

    I think the worst case scenario is if a parent saw what was being said (looking over her 12 year old’s shoulder) and she was the one talking to Wyrom or emailing him. Who cares? This isn’t the 90’s guys. You all know how this works nowadays, bad press, maybe a kid does something stupid over what went on in Lichnet, shit goes viral, suddenly the Feds got their ‘eye of sauron’ on us, “oh well looky here, looks like an online gambling operation being peddled to kids”, then...

I'm no dark elf IRL, but OMG, just a touch insensitive. Anyway, the response was "this town is known for not liking dark elves", too bad.
    Some people get mad at that too.
